Wednesday Reading: The Rule Of Trees · 7:04pm January 8th

"Why don't you make like a tree, and leaf?"
"I think I’ll make like a tree and stay exactly where I am for hundreds of years."
- Rollertown {and I'm probably misquoting}

Welcome, folks. Today we have a... I'm not sure how to categorize it? A... tree-based, historical, introspective kind of story? It's about the life {though not the death} of a tree.

A familiar tree.

Oh, and there's also ponies. But mostly one pony specifically.

Hap Recommends Scribblefest 2017 #1 · 10:17pm Mar 11th, 2017

Hello gents and gentesses. We did this last year and we're doing this again, although admittedly I won't be able to go through nearly as many stories as last time due to this being my final year in university and me being busy as all get-out. What am I doing, anyone who wasn't with us last year may be asking? Well, I participated in this years Everfree Northwest Scribblefest 2017, and in a grand and magnanimous show of solidarity I like to review my own opinions of some entries as well as try

I am thuroughly moist... · 10:22am June 9th

So I was introduced to this story by Hap and someone felt like this read like Full Life Consequences and I was without a doubt inspired and decided to make this video.

Does anybody know what this shenanigan is about? · 9:27pm Oct 27th, 2017

Turns out this was just some malware causing me mischief. It's sorted now, (thanks for that lads), but I'll leave this up for posterity's sake.

Hey, so, I google myself occasionally. Just to check if anything is going on nobody tells me about, and I found this weird list of sites with a .tk extension with my name on them, and I dunno what they're about:

NaPoWriMo Story: 42K Words To Go · 10:08pm Nov 7th, 2016

Hello everyone.

Sorry about the lack of an AppleDash story going up recently: I've been caught up editing it. It's well on the way, but I overestimated how quickly I'd be able to polish it up.

Hap Recommends Scribblefest #8: My Flight · 4:12pm Mar 25th, 2016

This story was introduced to me after reading Hat Man's reviews on other Scribblefest stories, and it immediately piqued my interest for a large number of reasons. The first was some similarities between this and my own entry, as both featured an Earth pony taking to the skies, as well as being more interested in the technical aspects of it, which appealed to my engineering background. I have, in fact, studied aerospace and find it very interesting.

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.

Hap Recommends Scribblefest #7: Take With Food · 4:33pm Mar 14th, 2016

Like I mentioned in my last one of these, I've stopped reading through three at a time because I've been getting much busier, and will only be reading and giving my thoughts on stories that either get requested or recommended to me directly. So there's only going to be one story in this one, I'm afraid.

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.

Hap Reviews: Aliens Abduct an Orange Yokel, by Crimmar · 5:28pm May 5th, 2018

Hello gents. Since I have a few days before my next test, I've decided to spend most of this week-end relaxing and reading a fanfic or two, something I've not done in a while (my uni has been slaughtering me). Since I'd quite like to spotlight some of the ones I found fun, I've decided to do quick reviews/shout-outs in case any of you guys who haven't read them might be interested in checking them out. Since I've not finished the one I'm currently reading, I wanted to chat about a story I read

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!

Scribblefest 2016 Winners Announced! · 10:03am Apr 14th, 2016

Okidok, at around the same time me and the other admins of HazMat wrapped up our own contest, the results of the EFNW Scribblefest also arrived. There was only one story that got a winning category that I didn't read (the Twilight award, which interestingly was the one I figured two other stories would have a shot at winning) so I can say with pretty reasonable confidence that I'm happy with all the winning entries (even the poem one. I still hate poetry with a vengeance, though, but I do think

And I'm back for round 2! I've gotten through another three stories that have all been submitted to the 2016 Scribblefest and I'm going to give my own thoughts regarding whether I liked them or not and who I'd recommend them to, depending on your tastes. Hopefully a few of you will find something cool to read from these blogs, and if you already found something you enjoyed, please post it in the comments below, so I can make reading it a priority.

Hap Recommends Moar Scribblefest #6 · 4:10pm Mar 12th, 2016

Hello again. This time around I've been trying to look for stories that got less exposure than some of the others I looked for in the hopes of finding some really good ones that might have simply fallen by the wayside. Unfortunately, that plan seems to have backfired since a few of them didn't really do much for me. However, this is why I haven't read other, heavily viewed stories with very large ratings. In fact, some of these stories had so few votes that they simply didn't show up.

Hap Recommends Even More Scribblefest #4 · 4:11pm Mar 10th, 2016

Back again for more recommendations from the EFNW 2016 Scribblefest. I've managed to scavenge a fair bit of variety for these three, which is pretty neat, and maybe you'll find something you might enjoy giving a read.

If you've not already checked out some of the other blog posts I've done, be sure to give them a look: there are some pretty decent stories in some of my previous recommendation blogs, so do give them a look if you have the time. And now, onwards!
