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

    You know that blue pony from the latest episode?

    Yeah, that one. The one everyone's been wondering about -- and yet it turns out that the answer has been hidden in plain sight, and in officially licensed media at that. Past the break to see...

    Season 8, Episode 5: "Grannies Gone Wild"

    G. M. Berrow doing what G. M. Berrow does well -- light, fluffy, entertaining filler. Nothing too deep or meaningful in here, and (as I always do) I missed most of the little pop culture nods (though even I got the main crossover theme!), but I had fun. It's not enormously memorable and I'd hope there'll be better eps this season, but no real complaints about this one. ★★★

    I like the episode a *bit* more now

    Yes, there are still annoying continuity issues. Yes, the "here's Fluttershy going over the top" bit is still overlong. But honestly? It was more fun second time through. I think this might be because on initial viewing I was on tenterhooks waiting for the bits when Rarity and Fluttershy bonded in some adorable way -- and, except right at the end, I didn't get them. I felt so disappointed. Second

    Season 8, Episode 4: "Fake It 'Til You Make It"

    An episode that was funny in places, but was also tiresome and repetitive. Pretty much a rehash of an earlier episode, and this one also annoyed me for trampling on show canon. A real disappointment. ★★, just for the amusement value.

    Hoping to make UK PonyCon again this year

    The convention has now announced that it will be in Nottingham Convention Centre on 13/14 October. That's about 80 miles from me and a straightforward, if rather slow, train journey. I've been to the last four UK PonyCons and I thought last year's was the best of the lot, so if I can scrape the £££ together I'll be going. That's as far as my planning can go at this stage, however.

Oh! I wasn't sure if you'd ever reviewed anything of mine. I suppose this answers that question. :derpytongue2:

4322558 Actually, the Big Master Review List tells me that I've reviewed five of your stories: as well as Mandatory Fun, they're Tenacity (PR 74), Wizards, Fools, and Foals (PR 89), The Flower's Dream (PR 113) and most recently Appellation Mountains (PR 130). I'll get to those on here in due course, but suffice to say you have nothing to worry about regarding their ratings. :twilightsmile:

Mind you, the fact that you didn't know this shows one reason I'm adding these summaries now -- and intend to continue with them. Making them a little more visible on the site where (almost) all the stories are actually to be found seemed like an obvious thing to do.

Glancing back through the list, I just realized that you gave those 6-star fics almost exactly the same ratings that I did! (I had Memorial at "just" 2)

I guess you and I are operating on the same wavelength.

4322727 I think I might have knocked off the odd star had I been reviewing the same fics now, but it is a nice coincidence!
