As I said on Twitter earlier today, I know I’ve been really silent here lately. Things have been super stressful in my real life, and unfortunately, I’ve let it affect the fic stuff. Fic can be an escape, and it is a lot of times, but sometimes when the stress gets too far under my skin, too emotional… it’s tougher to turn all of that off, or to even effectively channel that into fic.
Anyway! Enough about my life.
I’ve got one new review for you guys this month–Lost Without Each Other by KT. You’ll find that listed under the Anthem era.
I hope to soon start posting MOE era reviews, too, but I don’t suppose we can declare this new era officially started until the greatest hits album comes out (last I heard, September 8). I hope that date is correct, because I’m using it to plan when and how to update the Hall of Fame. I will be posting more about that within the next month, and I also hope to have some spotlights for you next month! So stay tuned for all of that.
Happy new year!
As you all know, I always post new spotlights on the first of every month. This month is no different, and the spotlights for January 2014 are:
But that’s not all! Since this is a new year, I decided to add a bunch more new stuff. Here’s a quick rundown of what I’ve done over the last day or so:
- Updates and edits to several pages, including crossovers, glossary, hall of fame, reading list and tropes
- The full year of 2013 has been added to the timeline page
- Hostees and affiliates are updated
- New buttons and screenshots of old layouts were added to the site page
- Medium sized directory update with several brand new links
Seems like there was something else… hmm… oh yeah! The new layout! It’s pretty similar to all the old ones, but the navigation is on the left this time, because why not? There are still a few things I want to tweak about it, so don’t be surprised if you come back in a day or two and things look a tiny bit different.
I think that’s it for this time, but I’ll be back in about two weeks with the January reviews, so come back then 🙂
Yes, I know I’m early! But I had errands to run today, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and get the last Big Monthly Update thing done. First of all, of course, there are new monthly spotlights! They are as follows:
Also, one of those spotlights, Lindsay is now hosted here at PTH! She’s still moving in, but you can read some of her writing now at Percipience.

It’s that time of the month again! Time for a new bunch of reviews. Here are the stories I reviewed this month:
I think that title says it all, doesn’t it? In case it doesn’t, let me tell you a little more.
Right now, the Hall of Fame is a pretty disorganized list of broken links tacked onto the end of the Intro to Hanfic page. Part of my project for June is to get both of these sections fixed and separated onto their own pages.
However… the Hall of Fame is proving difficult. I’m working to fix all the links and make sure all stories are in the most accurate era possible. I’m also expanding each list to twenty, because it’s just so hard to narrow it down to only ten. The Shout It Out era is my problem. This is the era I’ve been the most involved in, so it’s hard to be objective. So I’ve compiled a list of about sixty of the “top” stories, and made them into a survey for you guys. I already have a few stories of my own chosen, but your input will really help me to choose the rest.
The survey is pretty simple. Just select your top ten stories from the list. I’d prefer each person to only choose ten so that the votes don’t get spread out too far for the survey to be useful for me, but it’s fine if you choose a few more or a few less. If I’ve left off a story you’d like to vote for, there’s a spot at the bottom for you to type it in. The survey is totally anonymous and I won’t be publishing the results. Ready to take it? Great! Just click on the link below.
Take the Hall of Fame survey!
And just in case you aren’t familiar with some of the stories listed, or you’d like a refresher, here is the full list with links whenever possible, below the “read more” thingy.
