Hold your ground but do not be unkind. (Ponyphonic, "Shy Heart") · I still like the show. A lot.

    Not exactly a surprise...

    ...but Friendship is Magic is indeed ending after S9. As it says up there in my profile, I still like the show a lot, so I will miss it when it's gone. But nevertheless, I think it's the right time, and I'm interested to find out what G5 will bring. What a ride it's been, though. And it won't stop just because the show does. Slow down maybe, but not stop.

    Reviews of these stories by new(ish) writers coming in the next few weeks

    Some while back, I asked if anyone who'd joined Fimfiction since 1 January 2017 wanted to take part in a special edition of Ponyfic Roundup, my weekly review article on my off-site blog, Louder Yay. I got enough responses to decide to go ahead. The stories are listed below the break,

    Happy New Year!

    Yes, I'm back. It was nice to have a quiet Christmas period. I have a few PMs to catch up with over the next few days, and then... then I'm going to damn well write something. It may not be published here, or indeed anywhere, but it's going to happen. :scootangel:

    Ho ho ho

    It's Hearth's Warming season again, so in honour of the nice tradition begun by The Descendant, I'm switching to a Christmassy avatar for the duration. TD may not be around Fimfiction any more, but that's no reason not to continue his fine work. :moustache::twilightsmile:

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.)
