I'd like to leave a review of this very thought provoking tale, "The Times of Good-bye" by KaranDash.

Status Update · 9:11pm Sep 20th, 2015

I'm putting "Lunar Eclipse" on hiatus until I finish working on "Flight 19." F19 is so huge and complex I need to focus everything on it until I'm done; the last thing I wanna do is halfass my own story because I'm flipping back and forth.

Just an FYI. Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoyed our program!

Flight 19 · 8:23pm Aug 18th, 2015

For those of you who've read/followed the story, Flight 19, stay tuned. It's not dead by any means, and I apologize for the HUGEASS wait you've had to endure. I've had a lot of personal stuff get in the way of my writing over the past year, but it's being resolved. Which means new stuff coming your way soon.

As always, thank you for reading. :)

HiE Defense · 6:04am Mar 28th, 2015

SURPRISE!

I'm well aware that I've gone off on several HiE topics recently. However, I'd like to clear up something so you don't misunderstand me.

All the things I've hammered on recently are things I HATE about typical HiE fics. I honestly support HiE fics in general because they underline one of the basics tenets of storytelling: exploration of the human condition and nature.

HiE Rant #4 · 12:00am Mar 25th, 2015

Sorry, I got distracted by shiny stuff.

Next rant: The Human Commando.

Seriously? Why do 85% of the humans that end up in Equestria have ungodly combat skills? With an average world population of seven billion, the average Anon on the street knows jack shit about fighting professionally. A few scuffles in the schoolyard do not constitute unarmed combat skills, and as an armchair general, I know damn well I'd be dubious before jumping into a battlefield situation.

Hie Rant #3 · 2:18am Mar 5th, 2015

Today's topic? Anonymous.

I get that this is kind of a popular meme/pun/thing at the moment, but really, if you're writing a halfway serious story, don't do this. Just...don't.

HiE Rant #2 · 1:23am Feb 21st, 2015

Next rant.

INSTANT LOVE.

Okay, I know this isn't peculiar to just HiE, but it seems to get abused here. Why the hell are humans so attractive to ponies? I mean REALLY. This is a general rant more against instant love in romance fics, I guess, but jeez, dude! This weird instant attraction burns my ass.

HiE Rant Series - #1 · 12:16am Feb 20th, 2015

This is gonna be the first in a series of good-natured rants I have about the general run of HiE stories I've read. First, however, let's get some preliminary things out of the way:

1) I have no problem with HiE stories. Being that I've spent over two years co-writing one, for me to be against it would be most hypocritical, yes? And I'm not hypocritical. I'm awesome.

Moving on.

Rant and stuff · 1:01am Dec 30th, 2014

Hate to do this, but I really have nowhere else to go with this and it's weighing heavily on my mind.

What's it all about, Alfie?

Is it worth it? Lately I've been pretty disillusioned with my writing. When I have the free time, I work my ass off to try to write as best I can and provide a story worth reading; one you can lose yourself in, care about the characters, and hopefully remember more than five minutes after you've finished it.
