What up, my ponies? In case you don't know me, I go by Tactical!Rainboom on the forums, and also on Fimfiction and on Steam, but in the IRC I'm Ardor or Tactical or whatever else strikes my fancy at the moment. I'm a medically confirmed Asian-American who likes ponies, writing, and sometimes writing about ponies. I take my writing seriously, even when I'm writing dumb stuff about colorful ponies, and I try to be able to stand by the writing quality of everything I do.

If you feel like I'm someone worth talking to about writing-ish stuff, I invite you to come on in and pull up a chair. I'm always happy to talk to people about stuff and sometimes help people with stuff.

Without further ado, here are some links for you to ignore!

The Ancient Heart's First Beating
This is a story about many things, but ultimately, it is a story about love. —This is the best thing I have ever written. This is the best thing I expect to write for a long time. This story blew away the pony who I look to as a mentor and inspiration. I implore you to read this. Even if you don't like it, I want to share it.

Equestrian Aerial Magic Assault Unit 00
Twilight and Rainbow Dash take to the skies to show the world the meaning of Equestrian air superiority. —This is a fun story about a unicorn tied to a pegasus dodging lasers and single-hoofedly taking down a massive airship, while also learning about their feelings for each other.

Long Live the Queen
An archaeologist finds something hidden in his team's dig site, and learns the story of a long-forgotten queen. —This made it to EQD, but I don't know why it was so much better than what I sent in that didn't make it to EQD. This has the tone of Ancient Heart and I really don't know how to classify that.

Starswirl Walked Through Time
Twilight Sparkle is overjoyed to play the part of Starswirl the Bearded in a play, but she gets more than she bargained for when one of Starswirl's old nemeses mistakes her for the real thing. —This thing isn't perfect, but I feel like I did some things right with it. Another experiment with heroic/action themes.

The Sixth Age
Welcome to New Canterlot, chummer. A magical place—magical in the dangerous way. —This was one of the earliest things I wrote and I sort of regret doing an idea like this when I was so inexperienced. It's got a light sci-fi cyberpunk feel that borrows only slightly from Shadowrun.

Dumb things I don't feel the need to show off can be found behind my fimfiction link, plus some fun cloppy things that would need a #mature tag.

I've got a bunch more ideas being actively written that might be coming up soon, which is why I felt worthy of making this thread. Stay tuned! Ha, as if any of you care.

And, while I'm here:

Behind The Curtain
Trixie and Scratch star in a musical. Twilight Sparkle and Octavia do their best to retain control of the cast. —The picture doesn't tell the real story. This is about my own cherished memories of being part of semi-serious high school plays, plus the "what-if" of two strong personalities who don't give a crap about authority whipping the cast into a too-much-fun uncontrollable frenzy.

To use tags, you type [#Tag] into the text box. (You don't see my [#Tag] getting tagged because I'm using moderator witchcraft.)


>Implying you need [​#Moderator] witchcraft for that

Edit: Dammit.

This is the proudest day of my life.

Getting a fic on EQD was meaningless compared to being admitted to THESE hallowed halls.

Spoilered for foul language. This fic is explicit to the very highest degree, so check my profile in the OP if you want to read it.

Stuff 1624

Seattle's Angels picked me up! Pretty exciting. Because of that, I'm writing more stuff for The Sixth Age. Already churned out some bullshit, and have a proper chapter plotted.

Also, something new.

Scooter: A Tragedy In Three Acts
All Scootaloo wanted was to fly. She imagined herself as a stunt flyer, powerful and daring. This is the story of how she chased that dream, and of how her friends and mentors helped her along the way.—this is going to be a "tragedy" in the classical sense. It starts off nice, then gradually gets ugly.

The Sixth Age
4: Victoria

I've written a bunch of stuff for this, enough so that I can comfortably call it an update.

And I'm playing a game.

If you can figure out what song I ripped off shamelessly in the latest chapter, I will write a fic based on literally any concept you ask. No matter how fucked-up it is.

"Just read my "present." It was complete and utter filth. And I loved it."
—response to Trixie Versus the Hairless Flat-Faced Abomination, from the person it was written for. It's #mature, so check my profile to find it.

New story:

My Little Transvestite
Friendship is Tim Curry. Rocky virgins need not apply.
