Review #97 - The Games We Play · 5:08am Apr 28th, 2017

I really feel like I'm forgetting some commitment I made..... (not LeeRoy's and not Seattle's Angels, theirs I haven't yet forgotten).

Anyway, today I am finally getting around to reviewing a certain fic I sort of promised to do a few weeks back. Sadly, the author of said fic has been offline for 106 weeks and counting.

Fic-A-Minute: The Games We Play · 11:49am Apr 17th, 2015

Quite the outage we had yesterday, huh?

I spent my day playing games and below the break, you should too!

Fic-A-Minute: Shipping Goggles · 12:38pm Dec 9th, 2016

Making my way through Pokemon Sun and Moon. Having fun so far, but there are a few features from the previous games that I wish Game Freak had left in. Game Freak has a bad habit of introducing a new mechanic to make our lives easier catching and raising Pokemon, then taking it away in the next gen.

One thing I do like is the abolishment of Hidden Moves. No complaints there!

And as I say (almost)every week: The goggles! They ship everything!

Fic-A-Minute: Pinkie Watches Paint Dry · 11:46am Jun 10th, 2016

Getting closer to that mid-season hiatus again. The crying and baying of destroyed headcanons and OTPs will calm for a while until the new Equestria Girls movie is released to kick off the next wave of crying and baying.

I say, take a page from Pinkie's book below, and chill.

Paul's Thursday Reviews CVII · 9:57pm Mar 8th, 2018

And we’re back with another round. I’ll have to keep it short today, folks, as I’ve got almost 50k words to read (it’s a workaholic week), a car in the shop that needs picking up (my poor wallet! But the rental's sweet), 2,000 words to write (at minimum), my day job (writing about boring things so I can write about interesting things later), and a need to make a big meal so that the leftovers will last me every lunch for the next week (because it’s cheaper than buying six or seven small meals).

Paul's Thursday Reviews II · 12:31pm Aug 6th, 2015

So before we get to the reviews, a little announcement. I fear I am slowly approaching a financial crisis, and if things don't turn around at work within the next two or three weeks then I may have to take extreme measures. To try and pad this situation, I've finally caved into my friends' suggestions and started work on a Patreon. It's not ready yet, but I wanted to go ahead and let people know that it's coming and I will appreciate whatever help can be offered. I'm trying to think on rewards

In Reverence of The Old Guard · 7:08pm Sep 23rd, 2015

So I've been reading pony fanfiction for over four years now. That's... about a quarter of my natural life.

Fuck, I've wasted my life the best years of my youth gone I don't even-

Okay, that out of the way.

I'd like to make a compilation of some of the authors that made me want to be the author I have not yet become.

Read It Later Reviews #69 – Cutie Mark Crusaders Alpha Pack Leader; Sweet Nothings; Rapunzbelle; The Truth Is…, A Long Time Coming · 11:08pm Mar 10th, 2017

I actually got this review set done before I reviewed Eternal, but I hung onto it so my 1000th posted review would be something special (I’ve actually got most of a Read It Now set done, too).

But with that now read and posted, time to post this!

Today’s stories:

Cutie Mark Crusaders Alpha Pack Leader by Estee
Sweet Nothings by Absolute Anonymous
Rapunzbelle by Violet CLM
The Truth Is… by Crystal Moose

Pardon my dust, it has been a while since I last posted one of these. Been spending far too much time doing things that matter far less and feel very ephemeral in retrospect.

But no matter! Time to get cracking.

Today’s stories:

Petriculture by Kwakerjak
Acquiesce by HoofBitingActionOverload
Ditzy Doo’s Dismally Derpy Day by CLAVDIVS CAESAR

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

Recommended Story Reviews #11 – Tea Time, A Draconequus’ Guide to Immortality, The Cost of Life, Shipping Goggles, Correspondence · 10:14pm Jul 19th, 2016

Weeks ago, I started on this set with the intention of including a review of Eternal. Alas, I ended up reviewing five stories before I got around to reading it, and consequently it (along with Skywriter’s Heretical Fictions) got pushed off to another review post.

Why?

Because sometimes, when I’m stuck on a story, I go back and read through stories by others in the hopes of capturing some of their magic.

Read It Later Reviews #57 – Passing the Torch, Ponies Are Squishy, Magical Pony Ultrasounds, The Immortal’s Burden, Born That Way · 9:36pm Sep 21st, 2016

I was going to devote this post to stories about Dragon Lord Torch, in honor of me writing a story about him, as well as an excuse to populate my new group with stories about him.

I then learned that there are four stories on FIMFiction which appear to be about Dragon Lord Torch, or at least feature him heavily.

Recommended Story Reviews #15 – Wet Feathers, Martial Bliss, For When It Rains, I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, Where You Can’t Follow · 1:06pm Jan 26th, 2017

While I haven’t posted a Recommended Story Review set every month, I have been trying to do so, and this set brings me up to #15. This is starting to have an interesting consequence, though. Because these sets are composed entirely of stories that I enjoyed enough to recommend before I started doing reviews, the number of stories I can include in these sets shrinks every blog post.

Sorry folks, no time to talk. I’ve got 50k words to read today and all my usual reading time has been stolen by work-related issues. I’m pretty much going to spend the rest of my day buried in horsewords.

But there is one little thing to bring up: Milestone! Say hello to Of Angels... in Chinese. This is awesome and all credit goes to hehelover for the translation.

Paul's Thursday Reviews CXVIII · 9:44pm May 31st, 2018

There shall be no reviews next week, for that will be a break week. On the other hand, this means we’re practically done with the review expansion! So the next time you guys see reviews from me, it’ll be with a full set of 10 stories. And from the look of my schedule right up into mid-July, I’ll certainly be able to keep up. Hooray for practically doubled pacing!
