And perhaps you also speak Russian! If so, then have I got a deal for you.

    Fly Hard is not your favorite Hearth’s Warming story.”

    Rainbow Dash blinked. “Uh, yeah it is.”

    As impurturbably as before, Twilight repeated herself. “Fly Hard is not your favorite Hearth’s Warming story.”

    Tomorrow's a Snow Day, That Must Mean It's Time for Santa Hats

    We're scheduled for up to 17 inches of snow in the next 48 hours! If that's not enough to get us white through to Christmas, then I don't know what is. Pray for my poor, aching back; I'll be shoveling all night long.

    OMPR and the Wrongest Person in the World (it's Present Perfect)

    Just a short blast from the One Man's Pony Ramblings past this time. See, back when I was doing reviews on my review blog but when I wasn't doing reviews on my review blog, sometimes I'd talk about whatever the newest episode had brought us.

    Quiz Time! A Thing You Might Not Remember About OMPR

    ...Well, first of all, you might not remember that OMPR is/was One Man's Pony Ramblings, the mostly-fanfic-review-and-sometimes-other-stuff blog I ran for a long time.  I mean, plenty of you probably do remember it, but it's been *checks notes* jeez, over three years, closer to four, since I stopped?  Man, time flies.

Review Roundup: September 14-25 · 10:22pm Sep 28th, 2015

It's been two weeks, and that means it's time to find out what you've been missing if you don't get over to my blog on your own every now and then!

...What, you want more than one sentence of introduction? Then you should go to one of the actual posts; this is just here to show you what's going on over at One Man's Pony Ramblings. Speaking of, here's the last two weeks worth of posts:


Monday, September 14, 2015: First Sentences In (Fan)Fiction the 7th

Breakdowns of the first sentences from eight stories I recently reviewed, focusing how memorable, evocative, effective, and quotable they are.

Wednesday, September 16, 2015: Dissenting Opinion: First Sentences

Inquisitor M explains in a guest post what he thinks a first sentence--and a first scene--should do, and how that differs from my approach in posts like Monday's.

Friday, September 18, 2015: Fandom Classics Part 125: Felt Heart

My review of Tchernobog's novella about Rarity discovering an ancient courtship tradition, and deciding to employ it on (and on behalf of) Twilight Sparkle and her other friends.

Monday, September 21, 2015: Mini-Reviews Round 97

Short reviews of The Fundraiser, by Karrakaz; and Pip, by Invictus

Wednesday, September 23, 2015: Unlikely Fandom Classic Crossovers

Mash together the names (and premises) of two stories I've reviewed, and what do you get? A new title, and a snarky summary of a fic that, thankfully, was never written.

Friday, September 25, 2015: Fandom Classics Part 126: Hiatus

My review of Vargras's episodic, slice-of-life tale of Luna's year-long growth from season 1 to season 2.
