    To (some of) UK PonyCon!

    Yes, I'm off to Nottingham tomorrow. Sadly for a variety of reasons, not least the continuing financial fallout of that car accident in June, I can only attend the Saturday daytime (until about 6pm) portion of the convention this year -- but that's much better than nothing! This year's guests of honour are Kelly Sheridan and Elley-Ray Hennessy, and while matching last year (Actual Fluttershy,

    Fics I reviewed in July 2023

    Rather more reviews from me in July than there had been in June. We start off with the final part of the "Arboreal Yearnings Contest" results and follow up with three "mixed bag" editions. I'm very happy to say that there's a five-star story in this month's batch -- feeling able to award a top score is always a wonderful experience. As usual, please click on the underlined header to each section

    Group rules are there for a reason

    This is a bit of a whinge, but I wonder sometimes whether some people bother to read group rules any more. The Underappreciated Story Society has a clear, short set of rules. One of these is "No New Stories", which is then defined as meaning fics in their first week. As of my

    Fics I reviewed in June 2023

    For a small variety of reasons, not least my spending a week away on holiday, there were only three editions of Ponyfic Roundup in June. Indeed, one of those was a single-fic Spotlight, so this will be a rather shorter post than sometimes. The other Roundups were the first two parts of my reviews of "Arboreal Yearnings" contest stories. As usual, please click the underlined intro to each

    Fics I reviewed in May 2023

    For reasons relating to with my last blog post and various things connected with that, I have been almost permanently tired over the last few weeks. One of the upshots of that is that I've been concentrating on things I need to do, to the detriment of some things I don't. One of those is this monthly update, but I am managing to get this out (just!) before the end of the month, so I'm

Fics I reviewed in April 2023 · 5:23pm May 10th

Because of my Easter break, there were only three Ponyfic Roundups in April, and as one of them was a Spotlight edition the actual total of stories covered was much lower than sometimes. Nevertheless, here's a summary of the fics I reviewed and how they scored. To comply with Fimfiction rules, Mature-rated fics are not directly linked; for those I've linked the author's username instead. Such fics are listed with [M] after their titles. (There are none this time, however.) To read the actual reviews, click the underlined link above each story list.
