Hap Reviews: Contest Entries 3 · 12:08pm Nov 14th, 2019

Howdy hoo. Today I'm going to wrap up the entries for the 'Peace' category with Fit for a King, and then move onto a story which struck me as a promising competitor story, The Seneschal. Both I thought were pretty good, and both for different reasons!

Hap Reviews: Contest Entries 6 · 1:04pm Nov 22nd, 2019

Hello again, folks. Today we have a couple of stories that looked promising; one that reminded me of a story I myself wrote back in 2016 (one of the most popular ones, too!), and a short story that I actually spent a good long time having to think about, as the things I ended up finding interesting about the story took a few rereads to sink in.

Let's see how they did!

Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Partiers · 3:31pm Apr 21st, 2017

Alright, sorry for this one taking a bit longer, weekend was a bit busy what with the fangasming over the new Pony eps. (They were amazing BTW!) Maybe not the greatest stories ever, but both really fun, touching stories with a lot of heart and feels. As well as comedy. Yeah I loved them. Then some really long work days. But, back to what you're here for. My thoughts on some Princesses partying down!

Two weeks remain for Imposing Sovereigns II. To those who've bowed out, I hope you continue to explore the idea at your own pace. To anyone willing to jump in at this stage, you're welcome to.

Also, while I have your attention, please check out this survey for the fan episode project if you haven't already.

Hap Reviews: Contest Entries 1 · 7:03pm Nov 12th, 2019

Hello again. As I frequently try to do for stuff contest related (especially stuff I participate in), I like to read stories by other entrants, and since I read them, I may as well review them to shine a bit of a spotlight on the contest and hopefully convince some folks to give them a try if they sound like their cup of tea.

I like contests, and competitions in general, even when I don't win, so this is usually pretty good fun.

Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Schemers · 1:17pm Apr 10th, 2017

Expecting a review of the 'Survivors' stories? HAH! You all fell for my scheme of misdirection and now are about to be thoroughly blindsided by this actual review of the Schemer Princesses! There, that should work, that should totally work, good save on that screw up Sera. Oh crap, am I monologuing out loud?

Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Survivors · 4:12pm Apr 14th, 2017

Now, as promised (for real this time) the look at those Princess that lasted through hardship, tragedy, some kind of turmoil and managed to prevail. To survive. I'll be honest, given my personal aversion of overly sad, dark, tragic stories that just take your emotions and put them through a blender, and how some form of tragedy is implied in 'Survivor' (unless one of these turned out to be Twilight being the last survivor of an epic, Ponyville wide Nerf war/pie fight. Come to think of it... why

Contest! Imposing Sovereigns III: SOUL of Equestria · 2:56pm Sep 26th, 2021

I haven’t exactly kept careful track of my Fimficaversary. But this is the tenth. As of today, I’ve been on this site for a solid decade. If that’s not worthy of something special, I don’t know what is. And if you’ve looked at the blog title, you can probably guess what.

Hap Reviews: Contest Entries 4, Fang and Flame · 8:57pm Nov 16th, 2019

Hello again folks. Because the story here is a bit longer than what my tragically stunted reading speed can allow for, I'm only going through the one story today, by Horizon. It's called Fang and Flame, and initially came to my attention when the author pointed out that it was the only other Ember related story. What amused me especially was that it was in the War category.

Hap Reviews: Contest Entries 2 · 1:10pm Nov 13th, 2019

Hello again. Trying to get back into the swing of regular reading and stuff, since I'm out of practice. Last time I had finished two short stories, both okay and worth a look if they were of the sort that tickles your fancy. Today we have two more, also hopefully good. First up is the highest rated story in the Peace category of the contest, so that's pretty exciting, and then a story about Luna, and everybody likes Luna.

Only two more entries to go. With that we go from Princesses that just want to have a good time. To Princesses that just want to have a good time :raritywink:. Mares that just want to get some action and don't give a buck what ponies think. Let's take a look at the Floozies.

Contest! Imposing Sovereigns · 12:40pm Mar 4th, 2017

Note from the future: To see the results, click here.

My New Year's resolution this year was to engage more with the fan community. When I made the resolution, I just meant taking advantage of new disposable income to go to conventions. But you know what else that income can finance?

Contest prizes.

The Anxiety of New Grounds & Teaser · 7:59pm Oct 4th, 2019

Something of an unscheduled blog post, this. I'm not sure I'm got a legitimate or meaningful reason for publishing one, other than providing the world with a update as to my writing activities, and the emotional maelstrom that is being generated by them.

Yeah, it feels a little like this, sans the dragon skin.

Belabored Princess: Double Reminder Edition · 10:36pm Oct 21st, 2019

Polite reminder that we've passed the halfway point for Imposing Sovereigns II.

Additional polite reminder that Ponies: the Galloping, the actual MLP-based Magic cards that genuinely exist, go on sale tomorrow on the Hasbro Pulse store. Yes, they're really calling it Ponies: the Galloping.

That is all. For now.

Hap Reviews: Contest Entries 5 · 2:02pm Nov 19th, 2019

Back again folks with two more short entries to the Imposing Sovereign II contest that I picked at random this time. Since there are a few of these up already, I'm going to also at the beginning here link to the first 4 of these blogs. They're easy enough to find, but if you've just hopped on for this latest blog, this will hopefully make it a bit easier to jump around to the others.
