    Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Partiers · 3:31pm April 21st

    Alright, sorry for this one taking a bit longer, weekend was a bit busy what with the fangasming over the new Pony eps. (They were amazing BTW!) Maybe not the greatest stories ever, but both really fun, touching stories with a lot of heart and feels. As well as comedy. Yeah I loved them. Then some really long work days. But, back to what you're here for. My thoughts on some Princesses partying down!

    Quick contest announcement: I've created a group. I've also put all of the currently published entries in their appropriate subfolders. This should make things a lot easier for everyone else, my fellow judges included, to see the stories as they come. Sorry I didn't do this earlier. :twilightsheepish:

    Also, you all have about a week. Well, a week and fifteen hours by my watch.

    Contest! Imposing Sovereigns · 12:40pm March 4th

    Note from the future: To see the results, click here.

    My New Year's resolution this year was to engage more with the fan community. When I made the resolution, I just meant taking advantage of new disposable income to go to conventions. But you know what else that income can finance?

    Contest prizes.

    I see many things on the horizon. :derpyderp2:

    No, no, not that horizon! :facehoof: I mean fic forecasts! :pinkiehappy: Specifically, I have several things burning right now, and one or two on fire. My Twistyle checklist:

    The people have spoken. And by "the people," I specifically mean the people who are still signing up for the contest and would otherwise be expected to churn something out in half a week.

    The submission period of Imposing Sovereigns is getting a one-week extension, and will conclude at 11:59 PM EST on March 19th. Ideally, I'll announce the authors on the 25th, though that may depend on how quickly we can get through all the submissions.

    Honorable mention is... honorable! · 3:16am April 2nd

    As per my previous post I submitted a story (The Honing of Perfection) to FanOfMostEverything's Imposing Sovereigns Contest.

    While my entry didn't make the top three, I'm still enormously flattered that it got an honorable mention from a field of some forty very high quality entries.

    A big thanks to all the judges, and Skeeter The Lurker for the shout out!

    Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Warrior pt 2 · 12:58am April 4th

    Alright, so that first batch of reviews went done amazingly well, let's keep this train moving and get to the second set of Warrior Princess fics to review. Now, while I'm not in on any judging for this contest, might as well give my thoughts on who I'd pick because, why not? Out of the first five, should be obvious which I like the most, Principle's just an all around well written story with a very good idea. The only qualm I might have is the sort of tenuous link to the whole 'warrior' thing. So can see it being beat out by something else. But will it? Let's find out.

    Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Usurpers · 4:07pm April 7th

    The badass, dominating, hardcore Princesses who fight for what they want and decimate those that stand agsint them through shear skill and prowess have had their day, no it is time for another group to take the spotlight. Those who take what they want, who seize power anyway they can. Be it diplomacy, deceit, politics, war, or simply being to damn awesome to not be allowed to take over. These Usurpers will have their day in the limelight, they will taste the joys of the power they so desire, and nothing will stand in their way. How will this group of stories hold up to the last one? Let's find out.

    Firstly, Dueling Keyboards updated with a new short based largely on a random idea that my muse insisted on fleshing out. 'Tis silly.

    Secondly, Season 7 premieres on April 15th. Get hype.

    Thirdly, I am truly blown away by the response to the contest thus far in terms of both participants and cross-promotional blogs. Here are a few updates:

    • I mentioned this on the contest blog proper, but if you missed it, I've called in some help given the volume of the response. Assisting me as judges will be ScarletWeather and Skeeter the Lurker.

    Suprise! New Story! · 8:54pm March 19th

    Hello my most delightsome readers.

    :twilightsmile:

    I have a new chapter up in Obiter Dicta called "The Other Princess" and it has it all! Comedy! Intrigue! Gossip! Latin!

    It's an entry into FanOfMostEverything's superb Imposing Sovereigns contest. By all means check it out because I have some fairly incredible competition.

    Hope you enjoy the story, everyone, and no, this isn't the story I promised. I swear I'll finish that one up, too. Consider this a sort-of apology for being so very, very, very late.

    Send to Sleep · 2:25am March 20th

    About one hundred minutes left to the deadline, folks. Sadly, I won't be able to see this through to the very end of the submission period; I have an early day tomorrow. Still, an important note before I retire for the night:

    Tomorrow morning, I will create another folder in the Imposing Sovereigns group: Second-Born. As the name implies, this will be the home for any and all stories inspired by the contest that weren't finished by the end of today. I hope all of the entrants and anyone else inspired by the prompt will make use of it. :twilightsmile:

    Oh, and one more thing:

    Be sure you indicate your story's existence!

    You have three options there:

    • A post in the original contest thread.
    • Adding the story to the group.
    • Sending me a PM.

    Fic Recs, May 3rd: Imposing Sovereigns edition! · 9:16pm May 3rd

    Hey, I finally made it! And given how much I've been complaining about it, there's no way I'm leaving this till tomorrow to post. :B

    In case you live under a rock, Imposing Sovereigns was a contest run by FanOfMostEverything earlier this year, based on some stuff that, frankly, I don't recall; it's in the post I linked. Suffice to say, it attracted a lot of high-profile authors, and wrung quite a lot of excellent horse words out of them. I knew I would have to do this as an edition after seeing so many entries in the featured box, and I'm glad I did.

    Buckle up, it's a long ride! (I've grouped the stories by category, as proposed in the original contest post, but they are presented within each category in the order I read them. Also, I hit a milestone! :D)

    Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Madmares · 7:47pm May 5th

    We come at last to the final entry in this "Why the hell did I get myself into this? ....Oh right, it seemed like a good idea and then you all were so awesome and supportive and liked it so much no way was I not following through." Line of reviews. The Madmares! Princesses who have lost their sanity. Who have stepped over the fine line between genius and madness. Who have stared to long into the abyss and had the abyss stare back. Who looked out into The Black and were overwhelmed by the emptiness of it all. Who have walked that horseshoe of reality to the point where what is real and what is not become on in the same. Will these Matrons of Madness be able to carry some incredible stories? Or will they be but pale shadows of the one true Madness that is Janeway? If you don't get that, why the hell are you not watching SF Debris?

    Sovereigns' Realm · 11:17pm April 1st


    Come on, you knew there’d be a Magic card in here somewhere.

    I can honestly say that this has succeeded beyond my wildest expectations. Forty entries, eight of which made the featured box. A group that accrued triple digit members in less than a fortnight. One meddling ferret whose vengeance was swift and terrible when I told her I was afraid that this might not turn out all that well.

    Before I get to the results, I just want to thank everyone who made this happen once again. This is easily the best random whim I’ve ever indulged since I decided to start writing fan fiction in the first place.

    Okay, enough mush. Read on for the real reason you’re all here: Who won!

    Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Schemers · 1:17pm April 10th

    Expecting a review of the 'Survivors' stories? HAH! You all fell for my scheme of misdirection and now are about to be thoroughly blindsided by this actual review of the Schemer Princesses! There, that should work, that should totally work, good save on that screw up Sera. Oh crap, am I monologuing out loud?

    So yeah, turns out I screwed up a bit last time and thought the wrong category was next. In any event, have a look at the three entities of scheming, deceiving, tricksy Princesses who know what they want and have a plan to make ponies give it to them.

    Review: Imposing Sovereigns Stories, Survivors · 4:12pm April 14th

    Now, as promised (for real this time) the look at those Princess that lasted through hardship, tragedy, some kind of turmoil and managed to prevail. To survive. I'll be honest, given my personal aversion of overly sad, dark, tragic stories that just take your emotions and put them through a blender, and how some form of tragedy is implied in 'Survivor' (unless one of these turned out to be Twilight being the last survivor of an epic, Ponyville wide Nerf war/pie fight. Come to think of it... why is this not a thing?) I was assuming this would be the most painful group to read and review, the ones I'd just be struggling to be fair to and try to find the good beyond my own issues with overly sad stories.

    Stay Determined - This one was written for FanOfMostEverything's Imposing Sovereigns contest. But that is not why I am promoting it. I'm promoting it because it is a really clever piece of fiction. This has to do with the time loop within a time loop. Though I do believe it should have a Slice of Life tag, it's up for debate.


    Sharing the Night - Man is this amazing, if incomplete. Read this... read it. Though, there isn't much romance in it yet.
