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! [page_break] However, one thing to fix first from the last set of reviews. I derped at t... Read More

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 thin... Read More

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 Princess... Read More

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... Read More

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 who... Read More

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!

Sovereigns' Realm · 11:17pm

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 e... Read More

Recently FanOfMostEverything hosted a little writing contest called Imposing Sovereigns about Princesses being one manner or other of awesome and/or insane. For no real reason beyond 'why not?' I figured, since I'm getting back into the 'reviewing' thing at the same time it was going on, why not go through and check them out. They were divided up into seven categories, I'll do a separate post for the reviews of each group, save for the 'Warrior' categ... Read More

Retrospective: Sky · 2:47am

You're going to want to read the story before you read this. So go do that! --- You know, sometimes it’s fun just to throw caution to the wind and just smash through your enemies like the fist of an angry god. Or in this case… the hoof of an angry princess. Considering what Sunny just pulled off... I think I'd rather face off against an angry god. Welcome to the Retrospective on And a Sky Full of Stars. [page_break] You know, originally I had really meant this to be... Read More

Story Plug · 10:17pm

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 [spoiler]time loop within a time loop[/spoiler]. 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.

Due to certain logistical issues, we almost certainly won't be announcing the winners of Imposing Sovereigns today. Rest assured that we're working on making the delay as brief as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Morning Post · 11:38pm

Yesterday I submitted my entry to FanOfMostEverything’s awesome Imposing Sovereigns contest. If you haven’t done so yet, take a look at Crystal Glass Ceilings, the tale of Princess Cadance the Usurper - a princess who grabbed power in a man’s world. That was the prompt. While FOME was clear that it wasn’t expected to adhere to the ‘Man’s World’ bit, I decided it would be far more interesting to do so. The result has received an interesting reception. There's nothing like a hin... Read More

Send to Sleep · 2:25am

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 an... Read More

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... Read More

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.

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.

Words of More · 1:36am

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... Read More

On the Horizon · 10:21pm

I see many things on the horizon. :derpyderp2: ...other than gaudy colors. 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: [page_break] :derpytongue2: No Choice: completed minific (dark, horror, sci-fi), needs to be revised with some cutting :eeyup: Welcome Home: completed short story (background ponies; apparent—but not—tragedy), mostly revised I&#...
