    Sadly I can't find any ponified versions of Eurovision on here. There's a series by Ospero (starting here) that's inspired by a Eurovision song, but that's a different thing. Partly a consequence of the great dominance of American writers on this site, I suppose. As for tonight? Sweden's winning song was overrated.

    Fics I reviewed in April 2023

    Because of my Easter break, there were only three Ponyfic Roundups in April, and as one of them was a Spotlight edition the actual total of stories covered was much lower than sometimes. Nevertheless, here's a summary of the fics I reviewed and how they scored. To comply with Fimfiction rules, Mature-rated fics are not directly linked; for those I've linked the author's username instead. Such

    His Dark Materials reread blog is a go

    Before I forget yet again, I'll make a fairly rare non-Pony post. The His Dark Materials reread blog I said in February I was considering? It's happening, and indeed I'm now seven chapters into Northern Lights. Should anyone be interested, the relevant posts are on my

    Fics I reviewed in February 2023

    Once again, here's a run-down of the stories I reviewed last month in Ponyfic Roundup on Louder Yay.

Ponyfic Roundup reviews summary, #61 to #70 · 3:43pm Dec 5th, 2016

Previous: 1-10 | 11-20 | 21-30 | 31-40 | 41-50 | 51-60

Off we go again! The stories in this batch were featured in Ponyfic Roundup between June and August 2015. By this time, my reviews had settled down into the format they retain to this day and I was becoming a little less generous, especially with five-star ratings. There's only a single five here, and that not till the very end.

This time around, I'm less than whelmed by My Roommate is a Vampire but a tad more positive about The Life and Times of a Winning Pony. Other fics reviewed during this period include The Contest, The Laughter I Choose to Be and Shine.

Follow me past the break for the details, please! For the single [Mature] story in this batch I link to the author's page rather than the fic itself; Fimfiction rules regarding blogs are responsible for that.

Darnit. Now I need to do a link here. Wish I had this yesterday.

4329760 You would have, if I hadn't been lazy and decided not to do it yesterday!

Link back set. :twilightsmile:

Makes me wonder how many reviews I've had that I've never seen! :derpytongue2:

4329974 Yay! And I often wonder the same. Singularity Dream's fantastic spreadsheet does at least mean I notice when a regular reviewer picks up one of my stories, but I'm sure there are some that fall through the cracks.

Holy horsecrap! I had no idea this existed! :pinkiegasp:

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

4330082 Maybe it needs a bit more promotion! I'll try to remember to do something about that in the near future. It's an amazing resource. :pinkiehappy:
