Burning Vacation Time · 5:29pm Jul 3rd, 2020

My company wants us to burn vacation time because apparently it's a liability on their books. With everyone WFH right now, nobody's taking vacation. So. I'm taking a few days off. If I don't get distracted by something shiny, I'm hoping to have a Somber Dreams chapter after I get back.

Belated Thanks · 6:39pm May 27th, 2014

It occurred to me that I have never properly acknowledged my editors and proofreaders.
I tell you, folks, were it not for their efforts none of my stuff would have ever seen the light of day.
(Whether that deserves accolade or condemnation is up to you.)

Without further ado, in alphabetical order, and hoping I have not missed anyone, they are:

Hi! I'm Twilight Snarkle.
Some of you may know me as the author of a few crossover tales and my tendency to write sadfic/darkfic.
I am also a pre-reader for EQD.

Mah Freeends...
Well, enough Rebecca Black. As the image (and its credits) on Fine Steps has changed many times, now, I wanted to make sure I publicly acknowledged credit where it was due.
For the vectors of Snowdrop and Skyshine, I must give my heartfelt thanks to Wento. His FIM is here.

The April First Update · 4:43pm Apr 10th, 2013

I've gotten a dozen messages asking to have the original 'April Fools' epilogue restored to Hope. I won't do that, but I will provide the text here if anyone wishes it.

For those of you who missed it, I trolled my readership with a little joke for about 24 hours on 4/1. If you've not read Hope, or don't want to 'spoil' the ending you've already read, skip the rest of this post.

The Pinks Job · 2:59am Apr 3rd, 2013

"This is a stickup! Gimme all your money, or the pink pony gets it!" Pinkie brandished the strange metal cylinder threateningly, then pressed it against her head.

"No!" Pinkie shouted. "Don't worry about me! You need that money to save the farm!"

Spinning on one hoof, she yelled back. "Never fear, Pinkie! I'll get you out of this, and save the farm!"

"My hero!" shouted Pinkie from the gathering crowd.

Filk is Magic, vol 5 · 4:00am Mar 12th, 2013

A quickie today, and not directly pony related... necessarily...

My Favorite Things!

Carriage returns, regular indentation
Lines for new speakers, and good punctuation
Em-dash and en-dash and proper spacing
These are a few of my favorite things

Solid plot hooks and characterization
Dialogue, dialect, accentuation
Semicolons and the rhythm they bring
These are a few of my favorite things

Superscript, underlines, proper notation

Short Story Corner, Part I · 2:38am Mar 8th, 2013

This was originally written as a challenge to subvert the 'dark and stormy night' of Bulwer-Lyddon fame. I think I found the core for a new story, for future use. Enjoy, but be warned, it is rather dark.

It was a bleak and unforgiving sunrise in Bridleton, much like the one before, and the one before that. Celestia's sun did not so much shine, here, as stare balefully at the residents of the too-quiet town.
