Fallout: Equestria - Joker's Wild Reviews: Chapter 1 · 10:37pm Apr 1st, 2017

Video made by me.

Well I promised in my review schedule that I'd do something special today and here you are.

There's a lot of more serious fanfics out there in the Fallout: Equestria, and while I haven't read all of them, I have heard of this fanfic and that it is a bit, odd at times, so I figured it would be perfect for April Fools Day.

BOOK KLUB. · 3:57am Oct 16th, 2018

I like to read.

A lot.

You should too! At least, I'm assuming you do, if you're hanging out on a fanfic-based community. And you should read. Read things other than fanfic, even!

Because sometimes, reading non-fanfic offers an opportunity to make your fanfic better. Which brings us to Jo Walton's Tooth and Claw.

Two months of reworking medications, 3 heavy helpings of Reworks, and several rows of edits. It is finally here. Big props to everybody who helped out! I owe a lot to Nasty Hooves for his advice in some of these reworks.

Read It Now Reviews #73 – Taboo Diets, Shub-Cadurath, Catastrophe, End, Please Nibble Responsibly · 2:53am Feb 24th, 2016

Shub-Cadurath and Catastrophe. One is a story about a horrible monstrosity from beyond the veil of reality that reduces ponies to gibbering masses. The other story is about Princess Cadance giving birth to Princess Flurry Heart.

This was a rather eclectic set of stories; from a story with tiny cover art to a story about edible ears to a story about nursing, folks come up with some of the strangest things these days.

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?

Recommended Story Reviews #16 – The Numbers Don’t Lie, Disgraced, Learning Curves, An Afternoon for Dotted Line, Friends With Discounts · 12:26pm Jan 30th, 2017

Recently, I’ve been trying to be more productive. There are all too many times where I’m aware that I’m wasting my time, and I’m trying to make more of an effort to divert said “dumb time” into time where I actually accomplish something of value.

We’ll see how well it goes, but I’ve managed to put out a review set every other day since I started. So, progress, right?

Instead of working on A Thousand Roses yesterday, I ended up reading a number of additional stories off of my high priority Read It Sooner list, as well as re-reading a couple of older stories that I read before I started doing reviews.

I really need to get to work on finishing up my story… but I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy the experience of reading many of these works.

Recommended Story Reviews #9 – The Lavender Letter, Hoofprints, Fluttershy Comes Out of the Closet, Never So Far Away, Strange Bedfillies (Or: Nopony Loves Twilight Sparkle) · 10:37pm Mar 18th, 2016

In an attempt to re-energize my writing, I re-read a bunch of excellent stories in the last few days. But of course, it would be terrible for me to keep these to myself; while many of these are fandom classics, and others should be, if you somehow haven’t read them, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Hoofprints is perhaps one of my favorite pieces of writing on the site, and it is a pity it is hidden away in a short story collection; much like

Read It Now Reviews #91 – Cherish, At the Riverside, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Letters from an Irradiated Princess, The Majestic Tale of a Noble Hunter · 9:34pm Aug 24th, 2016

Sorry about the dearth of posts recently. I told myself that I’d get one of my stories done before I did some other pony stuff, and it turns out I’m really, really good at procrastinating.

On the upside, it did finally force me to actually get my story done! I’ve been sitting on it for far too long – in fact, I started on it before the Season 6 premier, and then managed to procrastinate on it for half a year.

But now it is done, and I am pretty happy with the result.

Some stories on the site are rated mature to keep them out of the hands of children. Because, really, what child would lie about being 18 on the Internet?

Some of these stories are quite good.
