So much wanton death and destruction · 5:35pm Feb 14th, 2016

Another year, another purge. It's rather sad that my last post was basically the same topic. I think I've had to move at least 500 fics down to my Dead Fic section in calibre and pull them from my kindle. Good stuff too. A large number of stories that I've been following, it's just sad that they're sitting there, unfinished and the majority of them left with nary a word from the author (in fact quite a few lost to deleted accounts). Makes me sad.

So here's my little rant for today. I'm getting really damn sick of story after story that I enjoy being taken down, passworded, or their authors running off after writing some stupid passive aggressive rant about how bronies (are you twits still denying you're bronies or have you "taken it back") are all mysoginistic, racist, homophobic, evil, blah blah blah, and the fandom is horrible and evil because people get mad, or they draw naughty pictures, or say mean things on the INTARWEBS! No one

Fucking Kindle · 9:24pm Sep 27th, 2013

Welp, apparently putting more than 1000 items on a kindle ruins it. Half the shit on my paperwhite doesn't work at all. DX works awesome, but the DX doesn't have a damn backlight. Bleah.

Old user info for archive and comparison purposes. Really old. Fuck only about 800 fics. That's, damn. · 3:32pm Sep 23rd, 2013

29 year old disabled vet who spends waaay to much time reading fics.

Well it's been a few weeks and lord I've actually had to start digging to find stories. But I've managed to add a few. Even after removing about 20 since they ended up being forgotten or cancelled. I hate when great stories are cancelled like Diamond of the Wasteland. But here you go:

Total count: 774 Fanfics.

117 One Shot Clop Fics (1-3 chapters at max)
139 Completed Mature Fics
146 Updating Mature Fics

So many authors, broken favorite button · 5:37pm Feb 24th, 2013

As you can tell from the bio I read LOTS of fics. What I do is grab URL for FFDL (see first blog post) and download 20-30 fics at a time.
Well I've been going back through my stories and faving, following, and what have you and I noticed something. The fave button
does not like being pressed too quickly. And it seems I only get a few favorites a day which is very sad.

I must do this, it is required of me. · 6:55am Feb 13th, 2013

Ok, so like many here I HATE HATE HATE when stories have poor spelling/grammar. It drives me nuts (seriously steering wheel glued to the sack here). But there is one story series for which I am overlooking that. And that is JArtisonW's Bounty Hunter series. It's 90% action porn (and I admit I skim the action scenes since they span multiple pages), the spelling is horrible, and the grammar is bleh, but my god is it FUN. I mean stupid fun, crazy whacked out, over the top, insane FUCKING

Organizing and Downloading Fics · 7:13pm Jan 17th, 2013

So I'm sure a good number of you may own a kindle or e-reader of some sort, or you may just enjoy downloading fics to read later. Well here's the greatest thing I've found for that. There's a program called calibre, totally free and totally awesome, that I use for organizing my ebooks. It's really easy to use and it supports addons. Best one I've found is called Fan Fiction Downloader. You paste story urls into it and it will store and maintain all of your fanfics that you follow. Best
