Hate, Threats, and Pony · 9:35pm Nov 12th, 2016

I've typed and deleted this post a half-dozen times today.

I'll try to keep it short.

Tell me again how this election wasn't about hate. I'm a white, cis male. To the outside observer who doesn't know anything about me, I look like any other random hairy schlub trying to corral a couple unruly kids at the local Target. But no, anyone with a grudge can dig up anything they like, these days, and use it as a bludgeon.

I have, since election night, received over a hundred hate messages on social media platforms, a letter in my mailbox (without postage, so hand-delivered), and - this morning - a flyer on my car window. Most (including the letter and flyer, thankfully) are generic vitriol with vague threats against me and mine now that Trump is President Elect, due, likely, to someone cross-referencing my voter registration information (available online, until very recently) with my online profiles / accounts. But some are intensely personal.

You may also find it helpful to run your story through an auto-proofreader app.

Going through my old favorites, figured I should drop by and congratulate you again on making a good Sonic crossover. Also eating a Sonic comic, you goddamn maniac, you.
Now do it again but with edgy Shadow.

It'll be here when I finish it. =)

I really enjoyed your eggman story all those years ago and even now I wait for the update, but life comes first. I Hope things are looking up for you.

Alive.

Also with a house full of teenagers, and a job situation that is unwieldly.

I've written parts of the next chapter. I've not yet finished it. I will, one day. That's really all I can say.
