Bronycon Part 3 · 2:02am Aug 2nd, 2015

I'm going again! I didn't think to ask the community for rides this time, so I'm going to take my first Greyhound bus trip over there and back. So this post is for people who'll be at the con already and want to do something with me. I had a lot of fun last time with Present Perfect (who can't make it this year), Stonershy, and all of the other big shots in the writing community (of which I am not one), and I'm hoping I can do something fun with them this time around too. Maybe we can have a

A Story I Have to Spotlight · 12:07am Nov 18th, 2014

I don't normally read fanfiction outside of the realm of My Little Pony. For me, getting into fanfiction entails being familiar with the base setting and wanting something from it that the story just isn't providing on its own. For pony stories, this meant more content when I ran out of episodes, as well as a wider variety of story types than is present on the show, though by now I'm involved enough in the community to keep reading regardless.

Doing More Things · 1:06am Oct 25th, 2014

I've done basically nothing to contribute to this site since I reposted my Immortal Game reviews here. I thought I'd fix that, without needlessly apologizing. You can't see the results just yet, but I just completed a revision/expansion of my writeoff-winning story, Final Resting Place. Once it gets edited or pre-read, I'll put it up and finally qualify as a horse writer again.

Solitair Reads The Immortal Game: Epilogue · 6:12am Sep 16th, 2014

Before I started writing this post, I decided to read all of the blog entries that AestheticB made on fimfiction.net, the site where I read his big story in the first place. In his most recent entry, he explained that the reason it took so long to write an epilogue is because he got conflicting expectations of what the epilogue should be and he didn’t know what to put down. In the end, he decided to forgo tying up every single loose end he’d been asked about and concentrated on a few scenes

Solitair Reads The Immortal Game: Chapter 23 · 6:07am Sep 16th, 2014

Once again, it seems to be taking me some time to gather my thoughts, so let me just state that this ending is very solid and it will probably satisfy any reader who was buying into every aspect of The Immortal Game thus far. It wasn’t all that mind-blowing or anything, and it wasn’t much of a surprise, but it was tense, it made sense, and everything rang true for me. Well, except for the fact that I’m still not sure how Fluttershy contributed to the final push of that battle. Was she

Solitair Reads The Immortal Game: Chapter 22 · 9:30pm Sep 14th, 2014

The final battle for the fate of all ponykind continues, and I’m not liking this chapter as much as the last one, probably because it seems like there’s more of that bladecasting and anime fighting in it than the previous one. I’m just skimming over that now to get to the good parts, much like how I ended up skimming through much of Fallout Equestria’s action scenes. I cared about the characters in Fallout Equestria and I wanted to see them succeed and bring about a better world, and while my

Solitair Reads The Immortal Game: Chapter 21 · 6:30am Sep 14th, 2014

The first thing I should point out about this chapter is that it ends abruptly in a way that I haven’t seen in this particular story. It doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, nor the end of a scene. My only conclusion is that since the final confrontation of the series is upon us now, the rest of the story is so epic that it can’t be contained in a single chapter. AestheticB decided to release it in three parts, presumably because a single chapter of about forty thousand words would scare off readers.

Solitair Reads The Immortal Game: Chapter 20 · 6:25am Sep 14th, 2014

One of the key differences between fanfiction and normal works of text like short stories and novels, aside from the obvious, is that fanfiction is serialized. Not once have I ever seen a novel-length fanfiction that was uploaded in one go, though I might be proven wrong if I actually had the inclination to check the dates of the comments and chapter uploads more thoroughly. Novels used to be serialized too, especially in the Victorian Era. The author who made the most out of this form of

Solitair Reads The Immortal Game: Chapter 19 · 7:36pm Sep 11th, 2014

The weekend didn’t diminish my mixed feelings toward this series any, feelings that tempt me into leaving this project behind me and getting to work on something else, like learning how to draw and writing my own fanfiction. In summation, though I can’t call this a bad story and I’m glad it got finished and that I read it, I’m eager to get it over with and I’m starting to really regret covering this for the blog. I joked about how I was following up a grimdark fic about ponies with another
