Badfic Slaughterhouse 3: Revenge of the Badfic · 9:34pm Jul 16th, 2014

In a world where bad stories run rampant across the internet, one man will do the same thing as a bunch of others and write mini-reviews.

Coming this summer to a theater near you: that guy who sits on the row behind you and talks through the whole movie while constantly bumping your seat.

Not coming to theaters: the stories listed below.

Badfic Slaughterhouse Special Edition #2: PonyFall (+ Five Score comparison) · 9:10pm Apr 20th, 2015

The Badfic Slaughterhouse is open for business, and it’s time to separate the wheat from the chaff once more. The good stories I’ve recently read will be appropriately lauded, but as for the bad ones… Well, the badfic grinder is ready for fresh meat.

It’s been months since I read and reviewed Five Score, Divided by Four and a few of its spin-offs, so this follow-up has been a long time coming.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #21 · 4:39am Apr 1st, 2015

I don’t know if this was driven by malice, self-loathing, or a little of both, but I decided to do something a little different this time. You see, I’ve been kinda disconnected from ponyfic lately. It’s not that I haven’t been reading and writing; I just haven’t been doing it here, and that kinda bothered me.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #7: Extra Facepalm Edition · 2:09pm Aug 4th, 2014

Once upon a time, there lived a grumpy guy who read way too many badfics.

This isn’t a fairy tale. It’s my life story.

Badfic Slaughterhouse 4: The Quest for Peace (but with badfics thrown into the sun instead of nukes) · 8:40pm Jul 18th, 2014

Good grief! It seems I really do read a lot. Better post this before it piles up too high.

Now, my problems can become your problems. Read on, and your free time will soon suffer the same fate as mine.

You’ll have the advantage of knowing which ones are crappy, though, so you can avoid them.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #8 · 6:45pm Aug 6th, 2014

It's that time again, boys and girls. Uncle Prak has put on his Santa suit and brought a sack full of goodies for those of you who have been good. Too bad you've all been bad. That means you just get some coal reviews. Look on the bright side, though; at least they're not all badfics!

If you're enjoying these blogs, be sure to scroll to the bottom this time.

How about some fic reviews/recommendations? · 2:12am Jul 4th, 2014

It's been suggested to me that I should blog more often, and since I have nothing else to do while I wait for my new chapter to be edited, I might as well give it a shot. In general, I don't have a lot to talk about, but it occurs to me that I read a ton of stories in my capacity as a TRG prereader/princess. Most stories we get, of course, don't make the cut. We wouldn't be much of a spotlighting group if we took everything, would we? Still, some of this stuff deserves a little recognition, so

Badfic Slaughterhouse #23 · 8:53pm Jul 6th, 2015

The doors of the Badfic Slaughterhouse have opened once more, and the sounds of children's laughter and anguished screams flow through them in equal measure. Within, fics of all sorts are judged, and the worst are hurled into a grinder for your twisted amusement.

Once again, it's been a while since my last blog. This time, however, I think I really am returning to making more regular posts. I've been reading a lot lately—so much that I actually have a backlog of stuff pending review.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #17 · 9:31pm Dec 13th, 2014

A wise man (who talks really fast about video games) once said, “experience has taught me that while declaring a game shitty because of the first few hours is perfectly valid and completely professional, you should never assume that a good game will stay good.”

Replace “game” with “story” and “hours” with “chapters”—or in extreme cases, “paragraphs”—and this applies perfectly well to story reviews.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #18: Last Year's Model · 8:53pm Jan 1st, 2015

Welcome to the Badfic Slaughterhouse. Good stories, please proceed to the lounge on your right, where you may be enjoyed in the manner you deserve. Bad stories, you will be “escorted” down the Walk of Shame to your left, where you will be beaten, humiliated, and thrown into a grinder as the audience cheers your demise. Have a nice day!

Badfic Slaughterhouse #12 · 9:16pm Sep 19th, 2014

Serious talk this time, so no silliness.

It’s been a little while since my last blog, and as some may have noticed from the notice on my profile page, that’s because most of my free time is being taken up with preparing for my impending move to a new house. Most of this post was written at least a week ago, which might make a few of these (the featured ones, in particular) a bit dated.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #13: The Dark Side lied about having cookies... · 6:28pm Sep 30th, 2014

...but it's having a clearance sale on badfics to make room for the new Oneshotober models!

So, here we are again. I’m not quite settled in at the new place, but I have found some time for reading here and there (mostly at work because my job is awesome that way) and that means reviews have piled up.

When the Badfic Slaughterhouse opens, Prak will sit on his glorious throne. All the stories will be gathered before him, and he will separate the fics one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep (goodfics) on his right and the goats (badfics) on his left.

Then he will pull a gilded lever, and the badfic goats will be cast into the grinder while the Angels cheer their demise.

Amen.

Badfic Slaughterhouse #9 · 6:28pm Aug 28th, 2014

To review or not to review, that is the question: whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer the existence of wretched badfics, or to take quill in hand against the army of alicorn OCs and write about how much they suck.

Not much of a question, really.
