Read It Later Reviews #76 – Unstable Sale, Morning in the Kitchen, I Can Wait, Scootadate, A Watchful Changeling · 12:36am Jun 1st, 2017

This set almost became an Estee story only set. Then I ended up reading one other story, then a second… and then it became a normal review set.

Also, every one of Estee’s stories that I haven’t read yet is 20k+ words long. And I’ve been saying I’d read bookplayer’s Lost Time, Cold in Gardez’s Salvation

I’m so good at putting off getting stuff read that I’m sure I’ll find fascinating.

Still, there was some good stuff in here.

No time like the present to review more stories, eh?

I actually read so many stories I had to shuffle a couple stories out of this review set into the next one.

Today’s stories:

The Mystery of the Disappearing Siblings by Jay-The-Brony
Palimpsest by NorrisThePony
Best Friends, Too by shortskirtsandexplosions

Read It Later Reviews #58 – Stupid Tree, A Confederacy of Dunce Caps, Minuette Sleeps Her Way to the Top, Page Two · 9:41pm Oct 31st, 2016

This was originally destined to be Read It Now Reviews #93, and was mostly written all the way back in September.

Then I kept on putting off finishing reading A Confederacy of Dunce Caps for no good reason.

Today, I found the time to finally finish it off… but by this point, now is really later.

Still, that’s no excuse not to post reviews!

Read It Now Reviews #52 – Get Clean!, Inevitable, Doll Judgement, Chronopthisis, Attack of the Mutated Zombie Orc Ninjas · 10:55pm Sep 10th, 2015

24,331 words.

That is the present length of Mistletrapped, whose first draft I have, at long last, completely finished, all the way through the epilogue.

I’m going to be editing it over the next few days, but you should expect the entire rest of that story to be posted somewhere within the space of the next week or so.

Read It Later Reviews #19 – Changeling, Magical Mystery Mistake, Sonic Rainbigot, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, Get Thyselves a Room · 9:24am Jul 6th, 2015

Hello to all my new followers!

For those of you who who are new, I periodically review stories and give my own personal recommendations on them. The stories are taken from my voluminous “Read It Later” lists, or alternatively are drawn from various places around the site. I am somewhat notorious for “hating everything”, but I assure you, there are things that I love.

Just not many of them.

Read It Later Reviews #63 – Who Has Time for Laziness?; The Dusty Trail; A Good Trot, Spoiled; A “Warm” Distraction; Two Cups of Tea · 10:59pm Jan 23rd, 2017

Apparently the answer to that first question is me, given that the first two reviews in this set were from a Read It Now set that I let sit for so long it ended up Read It Later. But I felt like reading some stories yesterday evening to round out a set.

Let’s get cracking.

Today’s stories:

Who Has Time for Laziness? by Minds Eye
The Dusty Trail by Unicorncob
A Good Trot, Spoiled by Estee
A “Warm” Distraction by Alchemicgree

Read It Later Reviews #48 – Horsefeathers, Whisk, Mechanical Aptitude,  , The Trouble with Phoenixes · 7:16pm May 22nd, 2016

Putting off reading stories and then doing lots of stuff less interesting than reading stories is stupid.

I still managed to procrastinate by wasting time on Reddit.

But I did get some stories read!

Today’s stories:

Horsefeathers by Fervidor
Whisk by Present Perfect

Happy Monday, folks! I’m actually writing this on Sunday, in an effort to actually have something done ahead of time; I’m actually hoping to spend Monday trying to work on one of my own stories, trying to get something up towards a real first draft done, so I can actually publish a story. If only I could decide which one to focus on…

Ah, well. In the meantime, enjoy some reviews of some recent tales.

Read It Later Reviews #80 – Sugarcube in the Corner, Cart-ography, Regrets, ∩∩Θπ ~ Ö ~ ÇHΓΩ/\/\É, Dear Friend · 6:59pm Sep 9th, 2017

It seems that the hurricane season is well upon us; between Hurricane Harvey two weeks ago, and Hurricane Irma demolishing several islands in the Caribbean, while two more wend their way around the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, there’s quite a bit of atmospheric excitement. Combined with the terrible fires out west and a big old earthquake off of Florida, we’ve really got all four of the elements well and truly covered.

Read It Later Reviews #83 – Administrative Angel, No Recipe for Perfection, Princess Twilight Sparkle the Bearded, Lootspheres, A Bird in the Dryer · 11:02pm Jan 25th, 2018

Is that... light?

I apologize for my long absence; for the last few months I wandered out into dark caves and buried myself there. I had no reason for doing so; I simply did. It is not that I lost interest, or found something more interesting to do; indeed, there was little to do in the dark.

I just hid. From what?

Myself, perhaps?

Read It Later Reviews #87 – Bangception, Now Hiring, Princess Day, Broken Record, Pear and Back Again · 8:17pm Apr 27th, 2020

While I was working on some new reviews, I went through my old files and realized I’d started a bunch of review sets that I’d never finished. These were all destined for various different review sets, but I never ended up publishing any of them because they were all in sets of 1-3 stories. I wrote some of these as far back as 2018.

But hey, better late than never, right?

Read It Now Reviews #107 – The Belonging Herd, Three Hundred and Sixty Degrees of Saturation, Modern Vortexology, Puzzling Pink Pecks on a Purple Pony Princess, Barnyard Barge-Ins · 6:11pm Apr 1st, 2017

I’ve been remiss in doing reviews this week. I’d make the excuse of the most recent write-off, but the sad reality is that I’ve been spending far too much of my free time arguing on Reddit.

Which means I might as well have been setting my time on fire.

Read It Later Reviews #25 – Rarity’s Rodeo, Dangerous, 100th Day, She’s Dazzling, Naked Lunch · 10:53pm Aug 10th, 2015

I wrote a piece of original fiction over the weekend – the first such piece I’ve written since late 2013. I had some fun writing it, and I think I shall be doing more of it and see how it goes.

But don’t think that means I’m giving up on ponies. Original fiction is business. Ponies? Are fun.

Speaking of fun, I reviewed five more stories, including one that really impressed me.

Read It Now Reviews #109 – Auk-ward…, RariTwi Shipping, A Proper Pair of Idiots, Three Letters, My Wings Will Keep You Safe · 6:42pm Jul 31st, 2017

I originally started this review set on April 15th. I got three stories done, and then forgot I had started a set. By the time I got back to it, it was the end of June, so I figured I probably should move them over to a Read It Later review set.

And then sat on it for another month.

Horizon publishing a story this morning, along with a request from someone who had gotten a featured story, spurred me to finish this set.

Read It Later Reviews #1 - A Confederacy of Dunce Caps, Going Anywhere, On the Importance of Spelling, Awaken, Scootaloo, and Fugue State · 6:00am Nov 24th, 2014

A common symptom of being on FIMFiction for a while is an ever-growing read later list, composed of a bunch of stories which looked interesting enough to mark “read later”, but which you were too lazy to read at that point in time, either because it wasn’t really that interesting, because you were pressed for time, or because it was simply fairly long and would require some actual commitment.

My Read It Later list is up to 1517 stories at the time of writing.

Read It Now Reviews #98 – Suited for Terror, Boo! Haunted House!, Morsel of Truth, Family Matters, Unnoticed · 10:38pm Nov 2nd, 2016

Halloween (or should I say, Nightmare Night) has come and gone, but it left us with a trio of stories which lingered in the featured story box – Suited for Terror, Boo! Haunted House!, and Morsel of Truth. In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I’d read all three, and polish off two more recent stories that caught my eye.

Suited for Terror by Estee
