Novel's Nook: All the various little follow-ups and reviews I've done.

Project Lead & Creative Director of The Manehattan Project (plus about fifteen other things).

I'm really just a writer who was forced into different types of creation because of an injury in January of 2015. Now, I'm finally at the point where I can actually read again without pain (under specific circumstances) and have decided to embark on my own series of tales in a unique little timeline starring my favorite pony, Sunset Shimmer (okay, okay, she ties with Twilight).

I also love doing cover designs for the various FimFiction stories. I have this OCD thing about all books on my iPad requiring a vertical-style cover (I blame Twilight and Rarity). I always use the existing artwork the author has selected as a base and then work from that. If you're interested in getting some cover design work done, send me a message!

Other than that, I keep an obsessively organized series of bookshelves of my favorite stories, which tend to be completed comedies, romances and adventures. If you've wandered by to wonder why I just spammed you with fifteen bookshelf adds, well, it means I liked your story. A lot. :D

I also enjoy writing insanely long, rambling, convoluted follow-ups to my favorite stories around here. Because, you know, I don't have enough to do already.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment!

You're going to want to read the story before you read this. So go do that!


Mythical birds? Check. Teenage dragons being teenagers? Check. Epic griffon versus dragon war? Check. Dramatic entrance? Check. Totally unexpected culture and lore building? Check.

Think that’s it.

Let’s get this party started, shall we?

Welcome to the retrospective on my first non-Wavelengths FimFiction story.

Retrospective: Sky · 2:47am

You're going to want to read the story before you read this. So go do that!


You know, sometimes it’s fun just to throw caution to the wind and just smash through your enemies like the fist of an angry god. Or in this case… the hoof of an angry princess.

Considering what Sunny just pulled off... I think I'd rather face off against an angry god.

Welcome to the Retrospective on And a Sky Full of Stars.

#11 · 2w, 10h ago · 2 · ·

Found you!

#10 · 11w, 6h ago · · ·

>2377085 Still... you should take out Kai Lang. I play almost entirely Paragon... but I always slam Renegade at that last moment. :rainbowdetermined2:

My first was Synthesis. I remember standing there for twenty minutes... trying to figure out what to do. I worked my tail off to get the Geth and the Quarians to work together...

Yeah. Fantastic game until the end. :raritycry:

#9 · 11w, 7h ago · 1 · ·


... Yeah, I can't argue with that. I started the Cerberus raid after finishing Citadel, and I've completely lost the desire to finish the game even though I'm so close to the end of it. I even know what ending I'm going to go with; I'm pretty much Destroy at heart every time I play 3, even though I'm of the opinion that all three endings are awful in different ways. I just really hope Andromeda learned...

It's a good excuse to get back into Origins, though!

#8 · 11w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2372035 The SR1 was indeed a gorgeous ship. Both are special. One fought Sovereign, the other assaulted the Collectors and escaped to the best epic music ever.

...I confess I haven't been able to get back into it since finishing Citadel for ME3. I want to (I've never even seen the official 'Extended Cut" ending, only saw the original)... but it's kinda hard. :twilightoops:

No matter your opinion on if it was good or bad, the ending was still hard.

#7 · 12w, 22h ago · 1 · ·


I've always had a soft spot for the Normandy SR1, myself; nothing quite beats the first space ship you traveled in to see the galaxy. :ajsmug:

I'm up to Thessia in the third game with my first pure Adept run, and throwing around biotic combinations has been a thing of beauty.

#6 · 12w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

>>2371210 Hiya!

Normandy Forever. (Hell, I'm typing on the laptop I named "Normandy SR2" and my main gaming rig is called "Destiny Ascension.") :pinkiehappy:

#5 · 12w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

Also can I just say hello (again) to a fellow Mass Effect fan? Hello! :pinkiehappy:
