About Hopefox

Hi! I'm Hopefox. I'm a 30-year-old male optical engineer living in Sydney, Australia with my two girlfriends and two cats. I'm not normally much of a writer, but am an avid reader, and both run and play in a number of tabletop and online roleplaying games.

As you can no doubt see from my profile, I've only written stories for My Little Pony so far. Something about that show has ignited my creativity to the point where I simply have to write down my ideas. There is so much depth and room to explore in both the characters and the setting, and I think it'll be a long time before I run out of ideas. That being said, I have plans for a story or two based on Tamora Pierce's work, of which I am also a quite large fan, particularly the Protector of the Small series.

About my stories

I love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, simple as that. I love all of the characters and am always hanging out eagerly for the next episode. My favourite character is Rarity, although there's not much between them - they're all fantastically written and acted. My favourite episode is Best Night Ever, both for the song and for the development and disillusionment it gives to all six mane characters.

I write the characters as I imagine they would act outside the constraints of a children's television show. This frees them to be involved with romance, sex, violence, sickness and death, but it doesn't change their personalities or identities. Thus, in my stories, you may read about Pinkie Pie as a shameless sex maniac or Twilight Sparkle as a reclusive virgin with a penchant for erotic romance novels, but you won't read about Rarity as a raging homophobe or Pinkie Pie as a serial killer. If I want to write about characters with those personalities, I won't base them on canonical characters who don't suit the part.

Ledah has drawn a picture inspired by "Apple Bloom's Family", to be found on deviantART here: . I can't thank the artist enough for this, so please, everypony go and take a look!
