I am an aspiring novelist/poet who writes high fantasy/action/adventure novels/fanfics and pretty poetry.

(As with all my stories, this one takes place in the AviaVerse. This particular story takes place a bit before the Kingdom of Avia chapter "Trouble's Waking", but you don't need to read Avia to know what is going on).

Svengallop is a manager to the stars, or so he claims. But many of his rising stars have mysteriously vanished. One day, he meets a 'down home' mare named Coloratura, who has a wonderful singing voice, and decides she's worth training. But her biggest, most expensive concert is interrupted by a stranger, a stranger who is far too clever, who seems to know his plans, and she doesn't like them. And armed with that knowledge, that stranger is going to make him pay...

Characters: Svengallop, short appearance of Countess Coloratura (thus the 'other' tag because there's no tag for them yet). Other characters are OCs, including OC Diamond Dogs.

Teen rating and dark tag for violence/implied violence and slavery. No coverart because I'm not sure what the cover should be. I know it would have Svengallop cowering on the ground, but I'm not sure of which of my characters should be lording over him.

Note: After watching "The Mane Attraction", I wanted to see that blasted jerk of a manager Svengallop get clobbered (I have a low tolerance for jerks-too many experiences with them). I was hoping Applejack would kick Svengallop in the head. But since Svengallop didn't get punished in the show, I wrote this story, albeit with a darker twist (since this is an AviaVerse story).

The wonderful LyraAlluse gave me this idea!

NOTE: The main story is technically complete, but I plan on adding a bonus "what-if" chapter that doesn't have to do with the main storyline, but is a story on what would have happened, had Svengallop not met the bounty hunter in the first chapter.

Noctis is a bat pony and the youngest of the Royal Lunar Guard trainees, and tonight is her final test to become a full-fledged guard. She must survive by her wits alone in a place full of dangers, the deadly Everfree Forest. Will she succeed and make her dream of being a royal guard come true, or will she die?


(I eventually plan to expand upon this story and make it part of my AviaVerse Origins series).





This is another AviaVerse story, and it takes place around the time of the Kingdom of Avia chapters "Trouble's Waking " and "Alliances", but this is a standalone story, so no need to read Avia to understand what's going on.

Rated 'teen' and tagged 'dark' for general violence. Also: Discord appears in one chapter- not sure if he has enough effect on things to be tagged though.

The main character in here (Noctis) cameos in Kingdom of Avia, is an important player in The Eighth Sea, and also appears in Dr. Bobtail.

Alternate title: Bobtail is a Jerk

Bobtail is a psychiatrist. He hates it- and his patients aren't helping. He really should never have taken this job, but he's stuck. Should have gone for something saner and safer-like testing magical explosives.
But at least he has good insurance. Now all he needs is a lot of therapy...

This is my first attempt at writing a story with some darkly-comedic undertones, but I'm not sure if there's enough comedy for the comedy tag. I did try to make Dr. Bobtail the "anti Dr. Wolf (bronyanalyst)"- this is where the dark comedy comes from.
Dark tag and teen rating are for general violence and destruction.

A tie-in to Kingdom of Avia and Eighth Sea, in that the characters in this story are main characters in the two listed above. But there's no need to read Avia or Eighth Sea first, in this case. This story can stand alone.

Dr. Bobtail takes place between the Avia chapters "Trouble's Waking" and "Invasion". By the time of "The Other", there's so much trouble brewing, it's too dangerous for Bobtail to keep his office. And by the time of the chapter "Invasion", Bobtail's gotten the heck out of town.

Note: slowly working on chapters for: Goldfeather, Falcona, Redtail, Nisse, Azurel, Goldmoon, Night Wind, Awinita, Anaba- after those chapters, Bobtail finally quits his job, leaving the princesses scrambling for a replacement.

Note: Discord is in a few chapters- not sure if he's a big enough player to be tagged though. The main focus is on Bobtail and his patients.
Note: This story was partially inspired from watching a large number of "A Moment With Doctor Wolf" videos on YouTube and partially from an RP some friends and I had a while back involving a psychiatrist. I got to wondering how a psychiatrist would respond to my characters, considering their personalities. Originally, I was going to have Bobtail be pretty competent and polite, but when I realized how much more fun it would be to write an incompetent jerk psychiatrist, that was what I did.

Storm is a thief and bounty hunter. The Gala is full of rich ponies with fancy jewels.
Discord is the Chaos Demon and a carnivore. He's looking for easy prey.
There is no way this will end well.

This is part of the AviaVerse universe and takes place early in Kingdom of Avia, between the chapters "Trouble's Waking" and "Alliances". I highly recommend you read Kingdom of Avia first, or at least the first few chapters, to understand more about the characters and situations in here.

A note on the cover: Storm (the unicorn) painted her fur on her front half to look like a suit so she could get into the Gala- she's actually a pinto.
