Other Stories I've Written

New Stuff

Motherly: Chrysalis comes of age with the help of her mother's "love".

Mission of Mercy: Fluttershy uses a unique approach to save a stranger.

Thorax the Red-Nosed Bughorse: several parody carols (I even sing)!

Very Short Stories

Page Two: a dark war-drama featuring Celestia and Luna.

Happily Ever After*: a semi-sweet minific about the price of happiness.

One Head of Cattle: a dark slice-of-life about Twilight Sparkle and a cow.

Polyphileos: a mildly bawdy comedy, at Fluttershy's expense.

Don't Say It: a tragic Sparity shipfic (I like it, but most readers don't).

Escaping Treatment: a dark, tragic drama where Twilight "cures" Screwy.

Tiara's Testament: this one is very dark and sad, so reader beware.

Incomplete Works (still updating)

Veneer: a story about what happened to the changelings after Season 6.

Twilight's Secret Journal (M): nopony should ever read this story.

Complete, but Controversial

Ashes: a sequel to The Knight and the Knave that wasn't as popular.

Recycled: my lowest-rated story, yet it's one of my favorites!

Back to Normal: readers threatened to boycott me over this one.

For a link to stories I've deleted from Fimfiction, see my first blog entry.

But seriously...

I think the irony here is that shades of dark brown are the most common colors for a horse. Just not for rainbow people.

I mean, Luna is nearly black in MLP. As of the fourth EQG movie, she's almost white:

That's unedited (apart from Donut Steel watermark). I'm not even going to bother mentioning Celestia...

Jesus Christ you were right about them all being caucasian

Hope you're well!

And there is only one version of the story, except that the two paragraphs immediately prior to the last two paragraphs in the story were added for more clarity. I don't think removing them does anything to improve the story, and nothing in the story was changed.

As it says above, to find my deleted fics all you need to do is go to my very first blog entry. There are links to all of them from there. I have no plans to modify it or take it down, so you don't need to worry.

Hi. sorry to bother you. I want to ask you for the fic called "Mares in pairs" I read that you have it in your googledoc thing, and I want to ask if is ok to download a copy of it. Also could it be possible to ask for the original version? or can I modify the one existing to have the original?

Yes, I really like the original version of the story.

Thanks beforehand.

It's new, a temporary icon just for Hearth's Warming season. I made it for this collection of songs! :raritywink:
