Today's story relies heavily on its twist/reveal. I have made as much effort as possible to not spoil said reveal, but this is a difficult story to critique while avoiding spoilers.

cleverpun's Concise Critiques #3 · 11:39am Jan 29th, 2016

I go into every story hoping for something that will be worth commenting at (great) length on. Unfortunately, not everything warrants prolonged critiquing. Here is a selection of reviews/critiques, in two sentences or less.

Dramatic Reading of "If You Came to Conquer" by Kitsune Heart · 4:09am Oct 7th, 2019

Some users may remember that one story I wrote about Nightmare Moon. You know, the one with the melodrama. Well, I'm happy to announce that Kitsune Heart has done a dramatic reading of it! Find it over here.

In my usual overanalysing way, I have written a critique of it. Read on for more.

Critique Review: The Secret Life of Rarity (With Guest Reviewer Brony Fife) · 3:20pm Aug 5th, 2015

Critique: One thing to note about this story before we begin is that the story has to warn us that the author doesn’t condone the actions and that if any author has murderous impulses to seek help.


Fife: Gotta be a responsible author, I guess. “In this story, Fluttershy explodes twice. I do not condone exploding. If you feel like you’re going to explode, it sucks to be you.”

Sunset Shimmer Shipping Contest: the Honorable Honorable Mentions · 7:53am Oct 5th, 2017

It's been a few weeks since the results of the first decennial Sunset Shimmer Shipping Contest. And although the results weren't that controversial—I've only yet seen one person accuse us of being biased and wrong—I know that there were loads of stories that deserve some recognition, if not simply to be talked about.

CCC: cleverpun's Critique Corner #1 · 4:29pm Jul 7th, 2015

One thing I like about the FIM fanfic fandom is the abundance of reviewers and critique available. It helps authors grow, helps other authors learn from their mistakes, and helps inform readers of stories they may like or dislike.

I generally avoided being one of those reviewers for a long time. I usually preferred a direct dialogue with the author, so my critique would often take the form of a lengthy comment directly on the story in question.

Today’s story uses not one, but two twists. Since the first twist is fairly obvious (perhaps intentionally so), I have not bothered to spoiler-tag it.

Today’s critique is another “retro” one. It is an adaptation of a comment I already made, on a story I have already read, rather than completely new material based on a recent read.

CCC: cleverpun's Critique Corner: Description/Title Reviews #2 · 3:26am Nov 29th, 2015

The description and title are some of the most important parts of a story. They provide readers with their first impression, convince them to read it, and characterize your story even after it is finished.
