Where Are All the Sorcerers in MLP? · 1:00am Dec 1st, 2018

Some of you might be tempted to answer this question, “There’s tons of sorcerers in MLP! Look at Sunset Shimmer and Starlight Glimmer, for instance. They are (were) evil and they use powerful magic.”

The Bowsette Controversy · 9:58pm Sep 28th, 2018

The best portrayal I could find, though her features vary.

“I’m having a terrible day. Somebody broke into my house last night and they drank all the vodka! They replaced every app on my phone with Tetris, and every song in my library with Tchaikovsky! Worst of all, they exposed my carelessness because I didn’t lock my door. What do I do? Who can I blame this on?TM

The X-Men Series Portrays an America Which No Longer Exists · 12:45am Aug 27th, 2018

Yet more show self-awareness. More adult concepts.

How do you become popular? Not by being a celebrity like Paris Hilton or the Cardass(hat)ians. Not by screaming into people's faces.

This site and the authors have become far more experienced, the stories far more nuanced, the comedy funnier, the drama sadder. We are all growing into true blue writers. 51 stories later, I am amazed and mystified at how much I was able to accomplish as a writer (350k+ words) but how much growing I still have to do. Some day I may re-write WestBoro in Equestria, My British Pony,
