Introducing the Youth to Greatness · 1:19pm Jun 2nd, 2015

So we're doing exams this week (and last week and next week), and if you don't have exams today, you just sit in your 4th period for like four hours. So I thought, "My 4th period has doing pretty well this semester, so let's do something fun for them." So I brought my Dreamcast to hook up for them to play. Get them off of their damn Xstations and Playboxes and experience the greatness of the Dreamcast. So they spent the first hour of class playing Soul Calibur, and they've been playing

Reforging a Broken Blade Complete · 2:32am Jun 29th, 2014

It's been almost a year and a half, but I finally finished my first fanfiction. Granted, I'd written two others in that time, but when I started this one, it was my first. It's not an award winner, but as my first attempt, I'm pretty proud of the result, even if it did become a daunting task to finish it. Now I can be on FiMFiction without feeling guilty about leaving it unfinished for so long. =P

"Lost Laughs" Complete · 2:59am May 11th, 2014

I know I'd mentioned writing a story explaining why Pinkie Pie is dead in Reforging a Broken Blade. Well, the story - Lost Laughs - is finally finished. It's not long - only two chapters and like 3800 words - is up for all those curious and interested.

A New Chapter Appears! · 4:50am Sep 19th, 2013

And it only took me four and a half freaking months. I've finally got Chapter 18 of Reforging a Broken Blade uploaded. It's the first new chapter since May. I'm terribly sorry for that, by the way. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this particular chapter. I got to write more about the psychological aspects of the story than in previous chapters. I'm beginning to wrap the story up. Chapter 20 or 21 will probably be the end, but then I'll be working on my next planned story - "Lost Laughs."

Almost Done Rewriting and Editing · 5:15am Sep 14th, 2013

Alright, fillies and colts, a quick updated about Reforging a Broken Blade. As most of you know, I've spent the past month and a half working on rewriting and editing the story. I'm pleased to announce that I am almost finished with that. I have one chapter left to rewrite and edit before I can finally start working on actually advancing the story. If anyone's stuck with it through my short hiatus and subsequent rewriting, you have my sincere thanks. To anyone who's just recently picked it

Revision Progress and Cover Art · 7:19pm Aug 23rd, 2013

The revisions for Reforging are going well. I got Chapter 6 rewritten and uploaded today, and I hope to get to Chapter 7 tomorrow. A friend of mine in the North Carolina Bronies group on Facebook took a commission for some cover art for that story as well as I Dream of Discord, and he finished the Reforging art today, so that's been uploaded. I'm really pleased with it. For those of you (if there are any of you) who are keeping up with the revisions to the story, I hope you're enjoying

Finally gonna work on that fanfic · 4:42am Aug 20th, 2013

Now that my personal life has calmed a bit and I'm in the writing mood again, I'm going to continue work on Reforging a Broken Blade. I'm going to be doing a major overhaul on it, first and foremost. I went to the writing panels at BronyCon, and those really opened my eyes to some major flaws in the story that I hadn't realized were there before. The main problem was with the OC. I started off trying to write myself as a pony which turned out not only to be not awesome at all but both a bit

I'll Update Eventually · 7:02am Aug 16th, 2013

So, I had planned to start revising and continuing my long neglected story this week. Really, I did. Then one of my good friends had a life-melting episode (eerily similar to the one I had 13 months ago) that landed her in the emergency room for an eight hour panic attack and now has landed her hospitalized and on suicide watch. Needless to say, I decided to drop most of my life to be there for her when she needed me (couldn't completely drop work; I need to pay rent after all). But yeah, I

BronyCon 2013 · 5:18am Aug 7th, 2013

Alright everypony, this is going to copied pretty straight from my Facebook post since it's pretty lengthy and says most of what I wanted to say anyway, but I wanted to add a couple of FiMFic specific things first. First of all, I am finally going to be picking up my story again. I'm going to be editing what I've written rather extensively (a "how not to suck at fanfiction" panel made me realize that most of what I had written is, to one degree or another, utter garbage), and then I will
