Author has written 13 stories for Calvin & Hobbes, Kingdom Hearts, Minecraft, Pikmin, My Little Pony, and Dragon Ball Z.
News: Things and stuff may soon happen
As usual, Calvin's Quest has not been cancelled. Chapter 18, "Calvin Vs Megalodon", is under way and will be out some time over the summer unless it isn't. Ponyball Z Abridged isn't necessarily cancelled, but it is on indefinite hiatus probably until TFS finish Season 3. In the meantime, enjoy my new Homestuck profile picture.

So I've recently started a new story: Ponyball Z Abridged! Basically, it's a ponification of TeamFourStar's excellent web series "Dragonball Z Abridged", and basically it consists of replacing the DBZA characters with the Mane 6 and switching out the dialogue to make it set in Equestria. The project was inspired by The Wholocked Brony's excellent "Adventures in Time" story, which is a similar project but with Doctor Who. (Incidentally, I tried to upload the story to FIMfiction, but they rejected it because it's "not original content". Still a bit pissed.)
Basically, here are the characters who have thus far been introduced and/or mentioned, and their corresponding MLP characters:
- Goku: Twilight (brilliant at what they do well, but kind of naive and stupid outside their comfort zone)
- Rainbow Dash: Vegeta (awesome and they know it; totally full of themselves; basically, "I AM THE HYPE!!!")
- Piccolo: Lyra (both outsiders named after instruments)
- Krillin: Spike (more or less there for comic relief and moral support; get physically and verbally abused constantly)
- Bulma: Fleur Dis Lee (succeed by being rich and not getting involved in the action)
- Yamcha: Flash (hated by his "friends" and apparently by life itself)
- Kami: Cadance (basically a god, but has little to no impact on the series)
- Raditz: Shining Armor (brother of main character; has almost no effect on the plot after initial introduction)
- Nappa: Pinkie Pie ("I am hilarious and you will quote everything I say!")
- Master Roshi: Granny Smith (elderly, apparently knows a lot but does very little to the overall story)
- Gohan: Fluttershy (starts out really nervous and reluctant to fight, but slowly gets more confident; when they get mad...look out)
- Mr. Popo: Pinkamena (HOLY CRAP, GET IT AWAY FROM ME!!!)
- King Yemma: Mayor Mare (Authority figure who has exactly zero impact on the story)
- Chi-Chi: Octavia (can easily see being overprotective of family)
- King Kai: Queen Luna (Ultra-powerful, lives on small planetoid, always lonely)
- Tien Shinhan: Applejack ("I am the only serious character on this show. That's the joke.")
- Chiaotzu: Sweetie Belle (martial arts master who looks like a little kid)
Things I learned from Homestuck:
1) Never let babies duel-wield flintlock pistols.
2) Never pretend you understand time, because the multiverse will immediately vomit a paradox on top of your head just to spite you.
3) Killing off a character and killing off a character are not the same thing, and neither is particularly binding.
4) When life gives you lemons, go back in time and sell them to life in the first place.
5) Fetch modii are miserable to work with. Except the Wallet Modus, that thing is awesome.
6) Do not, under any circumstances, eat the mind honey.
7) The characters you want to hug most will get killed off first. Deal with it.
8) IF YOU giive iit T1M3, YOU Can Learn t0 read aLl Of :33 Pesterlog writing] gimmicks. evven tHE REALLY annoy8ng on8s. MOR--E WORDS!
9) Stairs. They do, in fact, hapen.
Untitled Calvin's Quest follow-up
I'm keeping this project deep under wraps until Calvin's Quest is finished, in case I decide not to actually use it. It takes place after Calvin's Quest, and is part of a bigger plan I currently have.
Freeman Across the Universe
Based on the web series "Freeman's Mind"; further details will be posted later.
