My Little Pony fanfiction, apparently intended to advocate immortality (two immortal characters in the universe are apparently usually consoled over their sad state of affairs). 'Bad Horse' on 'fimfiction', or 'PhilGoetz' on LessWrong. Published in September 2012. Available online.

First read (September 2012)Edit


Google doc version shared on LessWrong ('v3'). 22620 characters long, or 12 standard pages.


Eliezer Yudkowsky praised it in the comments when it was posted on LessWrong on September 27th 2012, and it's only short so I thought I'd read it. Stuck it on my Kindle and read it that night.

Not really sure there wasn't some stuff that flew over my head, but if I understood everything there wasn't much to it and it didn't really argue against deathism very strongly, just had an immortal character with some reasons to disagree with it.
