I am TheSlorg. I pre-read for Equestria Daily, write the Pony Spotlights, and write stories of my own, too.

I have a positive outlook on life, and prefer to steer clear of negativity. If I've reviewed one of your stories, you might have noticed that I try to bring that attitude into pre-reading as well. I feel writers can gain far more from some constructive criticism mixed with a little encouragement than they can from a flat-out rejection.

What else is there to know about me? I'm married with two children, live in Sydney, Australia, am a published poet, and am a knight of the Micro-nation of Vikesland, as well as their Ambassador to Australia. I enjoy gaming of all kinds, watching the NFL, camping, swimming, and of course, writing and reading. I like most types of music, anime, and 80's cartoons. My favorite Mane 6 pony is Rarity for her complexity, and my favorite background ponies are Lyra and Junebug.

I will not discuss pre-reading decisions in public. If you have any questions feel free to PM me, but please be aware that anything discussed would be outside my capacity as a pre-reader.

Thanks for stopping by! Come say hello some time.
