Author has written 13 stories for My Little Pony, Undertale, Night in the Woods, Angels with Scaly Wings, Arashi no Yoru ni/あらしのよるに, and Pac-Man.

Hi, I'm Thorin. For money, I run a library youth tutoring program that sees a lot of use by East African immigrants, and I tutor online. For fun, I roleplay online, play and design games, do math and philosophy, read stuff, write songs, drum and take long semi-random walks. To feed my spirit, I write: short stories, novels, poetry and, yes, fan fiction. Talking animal fiction is my forte. I've self-published an interactive novel called What Is Best?--you can read about it here. I was heavily into My Little Pony for four or five years, and as of this writing, I'm into the video game Undertale. I hope to clear out the fan fiction bug enough to get back to writing fiction soon that I actually have a chance of selling to someone!

Frames of Folly reviews
A collection of comedic oneshots about MLP: FiM. Some are observational humor, some are extensions of what's seen on screen, and some are humorous what-ifs. All they really have in common is (A) being at least somewhat funny and (B) not being elaborate enough to warrant their own stories. Hosted, after a fashion, by Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie.

Among the Mane Six, there are fifteen possible romantic pairings. Some are obvious and fruitful; some less so. But what would happen if every single one of these pairings were packed into the -same fanfic?- The Combinatorics Project is an epic treasury of ponyships spread across five parallel universes. Partly satirical and partly in earnest, it goes to some truly wild places.
