Works with their own pages include:
Tropes found in his fan fiction work:
- Dead Fic: A couple, including his oldest My Little Pony stories, Shadow of the Dragonlords and To Woo a Princess—especially since they've been Jossed (the former fic, for instance, has Shining Armor harbor a crush on Twilight Sparkle; the story was written before it was revealed that Shining was Twilight's brother.) Since he's basically left the My Little Pony fandom to focus on writing Rag & Muffin, it's likely the rest of his pony fics will remain uncompleted as well.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The titles for his fanfic stories tend to be very straightforward (with the exception of "Forever", which, conversely, is a rather trite title.) Some of them have been compared to "scandalous broadsheets" (such as "Human Shining Armor Gets Twilight Sparkle Pregnant").
- Interspecies Romance: A couple of his stories involve this kind of romance; it never ends well. Which is in line with his philosophical views on the matter. He has dedicated a couple of blog posts to this subject, here (warning: Bone spoilers) and here (also see his comments on another blogger's post, here.) Essentially: it's fine as a traditional allegorical device, but if you literally and seriously feel attraction for a non-human creature, something's not right.
- The 'Verse: The "Chronoverse", a setting he's developed for his My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic fanfiction.
