"Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia." - Kurt Vonnegut. Currently accepting commissions!


Opening Commissions! · 6:43pm Feb 10th, 2018

This is me testing the waters, so to speak. Been writing for a while, but I've been doing a lot more of it lately, and I've recently been thinking about taking commissions for my work. Now, I believe I'm ready, so I've decided to write this blog post outlining the details!

Some guidelines:

  • No fics above 10K words. I'm not used to writing fics that are more than a few chapters, and I don't want my first time to be a commission.

To Whom it May or May Not Concern · 10:37am Feb 9th, 2017

For those who've been watching Ponyventure: Blood Hunts Blood - I haven't actually deleted it, I've just revoked my submission while I edit it and find a proofreader and rethink a few core concepts.

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, carry on.

Seriously, I knew AU OC fics weren't popular, but...

"...Why does this group have my story?" · 7:36am Jul 23rd, 2016

Prompted by accidentally placing Sombra's Crucible, Twilight's Corruption into an improper group, I realized that said story was in a bunch of groups that it really didn't belong in. Trying to figure out how to remove my story from those groups. Unfortunately, work on revising that story is... non-existent. Even the name disgusts me, ugh...

That is all.

Old Shame · 7:36am Feb 29th, 2016

So, here I am, on my long-neglected blog, posting about my little series of stories involve Sombra and Shade. And the news is this:

It's probably never going to be continued.

This shouldn't be a surprise, really, but the reasoning is a little more detailed.

Ah, the joys of worldbuilding. · 12:30am Oct 7th, 2015

So I'm not really sure who'll actually read this, given my relative obscurity and utter inactivity in the creative department. Still, there's a chance that I may return to writing in the near future.

The reason? I figured out, in my headcanon, Sombra's backstory.

Reassurances · 1:47am Oct 17th, 2013

Just so everypony knows, I am in fact still working on Shattered Darkness, for those who care. It's just... lately my writing feels so shallow, both with descriptions and with plots. I know what I want to write, but I just... don't have the muse to do it justice. It's strange. I used to be really good with purple prose, now it's just sort of beige. It's weird... I went from writing too much to writing too little.

Relentless · 7:41pm Aug 6th, 2013

Much sooner than I'd have hoped for, I've begun work on my second story, the as-yet unnamed sequel to to Sombra's Crucible, Twilight's Corruption. This time, the flame of inspiration will be tempered by the ice of proofreading and editing... I hope.

Thanks to all my watchers and whomever else may see this page. I don't know when I'll submit the next story, but I hope it will be some time from now. Everything must be as perfect as I can make it.

On a Steamroller · 4:44pm Aug 1st, 2013

Okay, so my apologies to my readers (the few that'll see this post) for putting up a chapter and then taking it down.

In truth, the last few days I've been going by the "National Novel Writing Month" approach to writing, which is to just get it all out with no thought to editing. I've been doing this primarily because I don't want to keep the readers waiting, which is rather unfortunate because it's become apparent that deadlines wreak havoc with my work.
