    Multi-gen means multi-gen

    Now that Fimfiction has opened up to G5 stories, I would like to see the site go the whole hog and cater for all generations. True, I wouldn't expect a massive number of fics about Posey and Gusty or Melody and Patch or whoever, but why not? Now G5 fics are here, Fimfiction can't continue to pretend that Friendship is Magic or even G4 in general is the defining factor linking all

    Tired but happy

    I was at UK PonyCon over the weekend. A real live MLP convention. And you know what? It was fabulous. (You can read that in a Rarity or Steven Magnet voice if you want!) Quite honestly the happiest weekend I can remember for a very, very long time. So to UKPC falls the honour of being the first in-person con of the G5 era, having previously been the final convention of the

    Write something, Logan!

    This is staying my top blog entry until I actually publish something. I mean, it's been over a year. :raritycry:

Ponyfic Roundup reviews summary, #11 to #20 · 9:24pm Nov 19th, 2016

Previous: 1-10

Here I go again with another summary of the Ponyfic Roundup posts on Louder Yay, this time from May-August 2014. The same format applies, including linking authors rather than story titles for M-rated fics -- not that there are any in this batch in any case! Again, I'm converting my old ratings to the current star system. Also, remember that a three-star fic is above average in my book, since I find having finer gradations more useful for stories I enjoyed than for stories I didn't. Details past the break! (And yes, all the fics in the first one really do get three stars!)

Also, remember that a three-star fic is above average in my book, since I find having finer gradations more useful for stories I enjoyed than for stories I didn't.

You ever got into trouble thanks to that? I decided to do something similar for that exact same reason, and more than once I got some pretty angry comments due to that.

4309822 Perhaps surprisingly, no -- although that's partly because not many people know I exist! It'll be interesting to see what happens when these summaries get to the later instalments after I'd become tougher with my ratings. It'll probably happen at some point, but I can deal with that. This is one reason I think reviewers should have some published work of their own -- to prove we can take it as well as dish it out. (My favourite bad review remains this one, on Ever Let the Fancy Roam.)
