About this blog

Just a general word dump, I guess? No real plans for it, just putting stuff in here that would otherwise get lost in threads.

Friendship is Optimal - thought dump

I've read the fic Friendship is Optimal the other day and... well, let's just say it had an effect on me. The story is here, but I should mention that I found it... kinda horrifying, among other things. So, be warned if you plan to read it, and if you're already familiar with it, read the stuff below let me know what you think. I already posted it in the comments section of the story itself, but I could use different perspectives.

Principal Celestia's Secret Journal

So, as you all... some of you... someone might possibly know, I'm a huge City of Heroes player, possibly even bigger than my fondness for ponies. So, obviously, I had to make some MLP expies the moment I got the chance. So, one of them is Primary Star, i.e. Principal Celestia {hooray for synonyms!}. Thing is... since I'm being IC with her in the game a lot of the time, I wonder if I should start chronicling it, for lack of a better word. Essentially make blog posts about her adventures, tho

fanfiction Voices wanted for fanfic readings!

Do you have a voice you can use?! Do you have a microphone of any kind whatsoever?! Do you love, or at least tolerate fanfiction?! Can you imagine combining all three?! Then do I have an offer for you!! ...okay, toning it down some. In short, I'm looking for volunteers to help with the Golden Oaks fanfiction reading project. At this point I'm mostly looking for folks to lend additional voices to the fics I'm reading, but I imagine the whole project should also be a

Ears wanted for a reading

Not sure how to pad this out so... I've been recording fanfiction readings for a while so I have a bit of a reserve when the Golden Oaks get redone, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to get some feedback on some of the stuff I've recorded anyway. So, without much ado, here's Cry for Love, a quick-and-dirty reading of a story poking fun at Best Pony and Best Princess Honorable Mention. Lemme know what you think.

We're all alone

Before you read the rest of this entry - mind you, it's not much - listen to this, from beginning to end. Lean back, close your eyes and just let the notes come. I love this song, and I haven't even know its name for years. It was sent to me, oh, well over a decade ago by someone, let's call them a friend of sorts, and all I had to go by was "Track 11". By that I mean I - almost literally - love it. If one could have an arrangement of notes as a soulmate, well... there we wou

USCMS Rainbow rebuild

Been burning time in Starbound lately - I've found a ruined starship wreck on an ocean planet and I've been gradually converting it to a colony. I might keep posting updates as I progress, but I am wondering - should I keep the ship's population ponyish, or fill it with random species?

Hoofless lives!

So, I live in an area that has, for lack of a better word, town deer. While still being, by and large, wild animals, they generally hang around the city and the surrounding areas. And also, notably, they hang inside the city. It's an interesting phenomenon, really - they're adapted, behaviorally, to the environment to the point where, when a herd is crossing a street, one will actually spot for incoming traffic until it's safe. And, of course, they will cheerfully stroll into your backyard

Quinch reads.... something!

Alrighty, so for the hell of it, and if anyone sees this and shows up, I'll be reading... something at 19:00 MDT. Yes, about half an hour from now. Generally unplanned, probably short, odds are I'll be spending most of the intervening time poking through FimFiction for something unchallenging. Be there, or, y'know, not. I don't expect you'll be missing much. Where? Poniverse Discord at https://discord.gg/CtywT2J , in the #storytime channel, or hang out in the #library lounge. Cheers!

Death!

...is a lonely business. For anyone interested, I'll be doing a reading of Ray Bradbury's novel of the same name this Sunday evening {or thereabouts, depending on where in this nonsensical world you are}. If it goes well, I might make a weekly event of it. Here's a convenient countdown. {edit: Apparently the countdown was being a stupid, so hopefully this should work?} I'm also very much open to suggestions of actual MLP fiction - short one-shots would be preferable to start off w

A Royal Problem - a wordy review

[Pre-Disclaimer: Wow, I did not expect that to turn into such a textwall. But hey, I am a rambler. Also, repost into my blog {is this my blog? I've never used it so far} from the Royal Problem thread] Disclaimer: if I've ever written an episode review before, it was long enough ago that I don't remember. So, bear with me] I suppose the most surprising thing is how perfectly everyone is cast for their role. I'll get to that in a minute, though. Eh, make that ten. Right now, I need
