    Summary

    "And then there's a customized copy of PONY PALS, a gift to you on your 14th birthday from the slippery Mr. Strider. Each page contains lovingly hand-written commentary on the deeds of this intrepid young horse. Later, about halfway through the book, rather than see the gag through to the bitter end, Strider began pasting over entire pages of original text with his own completely rewritten version of the story, while keeping all the chapter titles. His revision is a tough, emotionally draining read. But it's cathartic, in all the worst ways possible.
    He tends to get carried away with his projects."

    Note: this work is an altered book, and it plays on the physical relationship between the original pages and the edited text. As such, it's presented as a series of images. Reading the images is the only way to get the full experience, but I'm aware that some people can't/don't want to read it that way. So if that's the case, you can skip to chapter 13, which is a text-only version of the story, including rough descriptions of the most important illustrations.

    Summary

    “Somebody was watching me, and I didn’t like it,” he said. “I wanted to make them come out.” This wasn’t quite right but he knew he wouldn’t be able to explain what had actually happened. And besides, then he would have to explain that it wasn’t the first time, and then his papa would be mad, and ask him when it had first started, and he wouldn’t be able to tell him. The prickling feeling had always been there—it was just that now it had gotten worse. Or maybe he was just old enough to feel it properly.
