Greetings, I am Merlos the Mad. I am a dabbler of both words and wizardry in my free time. I also invite you all to partake in my musings. Take care though, as they are the product of a madman.

Greetings, Lords and Ladies, I bid you welcome to my humble home. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Merlos, Merlos the Magnificent, of mystery and merriment, master of magic and today of literary device... Alliteration not withstanding of course. I greatly enjoy relaxing before a warm fire with pipe and a flagon of brew. Also and more recently, writing, song crafting and even some artsing. If you by chance have heard from, I likewise ask that you ignore those philistines claiming myself and my mind are mad. I'm not mad, I'm a magus. Moreover however move aside and allow an arcane analytically articulate artisan such as myself to magnanimously magnificate my most mysteriously magical mastery of word wizardry and worldly wisdom.

And done.

Favorite Fandom Song and Video

Cider Slider!

This is a close second.

Favorite Fandom video, by Antony C!


Well, suffice it to say, my renewed effort to start updating to schedule once again didn't pan out. It was maybe a bit naive of me to try and hold myself to that, especially considering how bad my track record had been the last couple of years. Still, I felt I had to try.

At the very least, my laziness isn't all to blame this time around; I've got some bad news that I'm hesitant to share in that regard, and I've been putting off making a post about what I'm referring to. Still, I sort of feel like I can share such things here, and it really goes to show how highly I think of the my little pony community as a whole, many of you specifically, and the atmosphere here on fimfiction.

So, I'm sorry for hiding away lately.

This last summer my father was diagnosed with stage four cancer, and he recently passed away. I'm handling it well, but obviously there are a lot of changes going on right now in my family.

Well, I'm not too sure what else to say here, other than that I would really like to write again for you all. Some of the most fun I've had are moments after seeing how much these stories have been enjoyed, or times when I've worked with fellow fandom members. I'll blog about any progress or the like that's made in the future. Thanks for reading and I hope you yourself are doing well!
