I am Ion-Sturm. I like to post pictures of Anton Ego. I may or may not have a fetish for potatoes. I'm honestly not sure at this point. I generally only take reviews on special request, unless I feel an author has done such a poor job on their story (or the presentation thereof) that they deserve my wretched wrath. I can generally be found helping with smaller pieces of the big puzzle in the Synopsis thread, Story Forge, and my own Make a Scene thread.
My notable works include the following:My Kingdom for a Horse
The first story I wrote in the fandom, as a counter-point to the brain-dead original Conversion Bureau
. It never got anywhere, as most of my multi-chapter stories tend to do.
On an Earth torn apart by super-storms, salvation lies only a few steps through a portal away. The only thing it will ask for in return are your memories, your life, your humanity.Maverick
Another subversion of the Conversion Bureau, it was specifically made to exist in an area of grey morality where no side is truly in the right or wrong. This is the work I am most proud of so far.
A short story set in a dystopian future where Earth’s governments have been discretely selling off young talent to a certain equine country, Maverick is the tale of one young teen who finds himself “On the wrong side of the fence.” ‘Tinker’ is your typical street urchin, complete with worn clothes and a jaded view of the world. However, after a fateful encounter, he soon finds himself embroiled in a secretive exchange of assets, with his mind and body on the bargaining table.Ony Origins and the Orb of Omnipotence
My first original (as far as fanfiction goes) work in the fandom, this was an experiment of sorts and probably stands as my most popular work as of yet, not to mention most edited.
I humbly present Onyx Origins and the Orb of Omnipotence! Beyond the following link, you will find a second-person narrative story staring our titular hero, Onyx Origins, as he gallivants across Equestria in the eternal pursuit of cold, hard bits and hot, beautiful mares. Will you be able to guide our hero past such obstacles as blood-thirsty bunnies, irate rosebushes and a narrator who hates (and wants to eviscerate) your guts? Fueled by an obtuse hybrid of Terry Pratchet-like narration and a style of gameplay reminiscent of the classic arcade game Dragon's Lair, it's up to you to read between the lines and guide Onyx to safety! But choose wisely, lest your adventures come to an untimely (and unseemly) end…Story with Occasional Editor
A parallel story to Squeak's Gun With Occasional Pony
that never really left the ground. Meta as fuck, with a heaping serving of purple prose and a side of self-insert (x2). It's so old that, when it was made, the Shipping thread was the fastest thing on the board (as is noted in the story itself).
Light is a semi-successful editor for the fanfic writers of the OC but, after months of taming rampaging run-on sentences, cleaning formatting with a figurative toothbrush, fixing the most basic of mistakes and failing to make his own mark in the fan-fiction world, he has become bitter and jaded. However, when he finds himself editing the very-real recounting of Squeak’s investigation, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery as he, quite literally, rights the wrongs of the OC.Darkness

The Solar Guard and Lunar Knights may have their differences but, if there's one thing they do
have in common, it's just how strange their respective bosses are. This will be updated with a link to the radio play version once it has been completed.Reviewing the Potato
The review that put the tuber-related mark on me. People think it's a good read so, maybe, you will, too.
Enjoy the potato. Know the potato. Be
