Everywhere I go, Bronies always know that Jacob Keel has got a pony that he loves to show.

Remember "Sky of Fire"? · 4:53am Oct 26th, 2014

If you do, then you probably remember that I was writing it for Camp NaNoWriMo this year. As it turns out, I didn't win, but I did manage to write 18000 words of it. Considering it's an action-oriented (possibly science fiction) work, I'm aiming for around 70000 words.

Hold On, Holy Ghost! · 12:44am Oct 23rd, 2014

If you sang along, I love you. As you could probably guess, this post is about a song... but not just any song. It's the first we've heard from Hollywood Undead since they told us about their upcoming album.

All's Well that Ends Well (Except When it Doesn't) · 6:20am Sep 27th, 2014

Well... count myself one follower down. For those who don't know, I have officially broken off any chances of rekindling my relationship with my (as of two months ago) ex-girlfriend.

Why would I do this, you may ask? Well let me spare you the sob story and just tell you that we were incompatible to the highest degree.

Ever Downvote Without Reading? · 2:47am Sep 23rd, 2014

I don't mean to cause any trouble by bringing this subject up, but I'm just curious. For the first time since I joined this site almost three years ago, I finally did it. Everything else I've given a downvote to... it's been read first.

I can safely say it's something I'll try my hardest NOT to do ever again.

I Feel so Old! · 11:18pm Sep 19th, 2014

You know what I've discovered? I have yet to find more than a handful of profiles that I follow that are older than mine. Three of those are the profiles of Argembarger (the trollfic author who's probably most famous for the one work that isn't listed on his profile), device heretic (who isn't actively pursuing his profile anymore due to issues with a publisher), and Pen Stroke (who I'm going to do a plug for at the end of this blog).

Honestly Though... · 12:47pm Sep 15th, 2014

Father Mare has come a long way since when I started it. This is one of the facts about many series like it, since the author improves over time (unless you're Tara Gilesbie, that is). However, with this being said, I feel as if I need to tell you guys something about this.
Soarin and Spitfire are now separate after the birth of their foal, because they fell out of love with one another about seven months in.

Ditzy/Derpy vs Soarin (Who Got It Worse?) · 6:28am Sep 12th, 2014

I've noticed a bad trend within our fanbase, which is that we take a one-off joke and make that into a character. This happened with both of them, though in different ways.

Derpy/Ditzy: After the episode where Derpy (supposedly) says, "Muffin," we're greeted with an onslaught of images about her being obsessed with muffins. Later, as it's revealed that she's clumsy and has a "lazy eye", we're greeted with more images about her being slightly less intelligent than the rest of Equestria.

People of Earth, I Bring You Bad News · 5:18am Aug 25th, 2014

I've honestly lost interest in the fanfiction side of things when it comes to legitimate works. I never get noticed except for a few people, and even then they never seem to come back to the story.

I know this is going to be hard for some of you; after all, I have two relatively popular stories that I don't believe in anymore. Father Mare was over when it was rejected from TRG, and ARE has been off the radar for years now. Let's hope I don't get too much hate over this.

To Celebrate Vinyl Scratch... · 9:26pm Aug 4th, 2014

I love this song so much, and to celebrate what I am now labeling as her birthday in the ARE universe, I figured I'd post it here. If you want more wubs and loud music in general, look below:

Post more in the comments if you want.

Hands-On Impressions · 2:42am Jul 28th, 2014

So if you've been paying attention to my blog at all, you'd know that I was just involved in the Destiny beta. These are my impressions from the four days that I got to play it.

The Good:

1. Explore is an addicting thing that not a lot of shooters have, but that has been imported directly from the MMO style.
