    So then, Doctor Who

    Loved it! A few little quibbles, not all the acting from the newcomers was stellar and sadly parts of the gender-related stuff felt awkward and forced, eg "something a male-presenting Time Lord wouldn't understand", but I liked much more than I didn't. Plus one of my worries about the new Disney-cash-infused Who has been dispelled: this definitely did

    Bloody Covid

    Fortunately not in the literal sense! But yeah, I'm currently stuck at home, yet not feeling well enough to concentrate on ponyfic. It's a seriously annoying combination. :pinkiesick:

    UK PonyCon report

    This is inelegantly copy/pasted over from the (slightly) nicer looking report over on Louder Yay. Of course, I'm sure you all read Louder Yay anyway because you're such great people, but just in case here's the report here as well...

    Back from (some of) UK PonyCon

    Even though it was a shorter affair for me this year than usual, it was still great to get to Nottingham for 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,

Group rules are there for a reason · 6:13pm August 2nd

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 writing this, more than one folder there has stories added in their first two days. Given that an author really can't know that fast whether their fic is unappreciated, this undermines the whole purpose of the group.

tl;dr: grumble.

Well, yeah. The two things are not necessarily unrelated, of course... :rainbowwild:

we live in a society!
