writing whiskey wicked faerie

he's just a one-trick pony but he turns that trick with pride

631 words on the devil ponies today, which was very satisfying. I'm still not sure what the A narrative is, but the structure overall is non-trad and calls for a certain amount of stunt writing, which is balancy and fun.

I do know more or less how it comes out in the end, however. So that's something. And the protagonist has a name, which is nice.

Now the story just needs a name, too. Pity there's nothing in "All the Pretty Little Horses" worth swiping except the title, which is overused already.

Current 93 has a whole album built around ... well, whatever magical tradition David Tibet was mainlining that week -- and All the Pretty Little Horses (it features Nick Cave). Though the various versions of the song on the album are all mostly traditional, there's a good deal of other stuff there that might lend itself to title-thiefing. A little more info here.
"So I got me some horses to ride on" from Tori Amos Horses?
I was thinking that too.
My Petty Pony


Ducking and running now...
Sounds like this is one of those projects which it'll be fun to hear about and even more to read.
Ive had nothing but bad luck
Since the day I found the pony at my door
So I came into you sweet lady
Answering your mystical call
Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future,the past
Same pony with them evil eyes
And I knew it was a spell she cast

She's just a devil pony
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil pony
She's gonna get you
She's just a devil pony
With soul-sucking on her mind
Beware the devil pony
She's gonna get you from behind

Give me the ring on your finger
Let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a dark devil pony
Giving you what you hadn't planned
I drank the potion she offered me
I found myself on the floor
Then I looked into those big green eyes
And I wondered what I'd come there for

[chorus]

If you're out on a moonlit night
Be careful of them neighbourhood strays
Of a pony with a long black mane
Tryin' to win you with her equine ways
Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future,the past
Same pony with them evil eyes
You'd better get out of there fast

[chorus]
LMAO!
Also, "Devil Pony" scans to "Pretty Woman". :-)

"Equines of the Apocalypse" or

"The Shetland Has Hit the Fan"
Here's a title for you. "The Ponies and the Bear". @=)

@duck.

"Devil Ponies" works too.
Apropos of a book you have coming out later this month, a friend of mine (also a fan) ran across this piece of... writing... on the Internet and thought you would be amused by it. I really have... nothing to say to it.
<--
"Dapples and Grays"?
"Bring on the dancing horses"
