I don’t want to say much else (I’ve talked a lot on Twitter) about what’s been going on here at PTH, but surely anyone who has visited over the last two weeks has noticed a lot of downtime. It would appear that the site has been hacked, and I’ve done my best to get things back to normal. All I can say now is that I hope they remain that way.
With that out of the way, let’s talk about some actual updates!
To make up for some of my laziness over the past year, I decided to start this year out with a big series to review. My reviews of The Kindred Series by Aimster can be found under the Anthem and MOE eras.
I’ve also made a slight tweak to the MOE era — Elizabeth’s review of Beneath My Skin by Aimster can now be found in that section.
Check back soon for more updates, and please, if you notice anything looking weird on the site, let me know! It took me way too long to discover the problem and I might have been able to fix it sooner if I had been aware sooner. Which really just means I need to get back to checking in on and updating the site more regularly, like I used to, rather than just checking in a few times a month. I guess that’s a good new year’s resolution!
Much like I just posted over on Extemporaneous, this has been a pretty blah year for me hanfic-wise and I don’t really feel like posting a big yearly recap.
Somehow, I’ve manged to put just the bare minimum effort to keep this site open. That really isn’t fair to all of you guys out there visiting–and my hit counter shows that, while visits have been slacking a bit this year too, there are still a lot of you. For such an amazing year for the band and their music, it wasn’t so great for me, an I hate that I let that be reflected in how I ran this site.
I don’t have any big plans to do anything new or different in 2018, but I promise it will be a better year! I’m working on some changes to the PTH tumblr, and have also updated the trivia and timeline pages right here. Check back soon for more… whatever that more turns out to be.
I know, I’m running super later this year. Although it took me longer than usual, I did truly enjoy the fic I reviewed this month. You can read my review of South Street by Jess in The Walk era.
Check back in a few days to see all the revealed Wintry Remix fics, and check back after that for my year-end wrap-up stuff, including updates to the timeline and trivia pages!
Well, first things first, it’s time for a new layout! I can’t believe the other one had been up since 2014. Where did the time go??? This one is a little fresher, and gets me excited about what this year holds for our fandom. I’m still very anxious for a release date for Middle of Everywhere, because we are more than overdue for a new era. Maybe a greatest hits release isn’t all that new, but I’m ready anyway.
So the layout is here, and the rest of it (hall of fame, etc) is coming soon! In the meantime, please let me know if there are any problems with the site. You may need to clear your cache to get everything to display properly.
Once you’ve done that, check out the new reviews for March, too. I’ve reviewed Unexpected Beautiful by Becky, and Elizabeth has contributed several reviews. You’ll find her reviews of Behind Walls by Cad, If Tomorrow Never Comes by KT and Kindred 8: The Jock by Aimster in the Anthem era, and her review of my story The Stars Have Fallen in the Shout It Out era.
Check back soon for more newness!
No, it’s not spotlights for February. Nor is it my February reviews, although I promise those will be posted in just a few days.
I have finally, after a bit of procrastinating and rewriting, posted my analysis of my recent hanfic preferences survey. I don’t know if it’s all that interesting to anyone who isn’t as nerdy as me, but in case it is, it’s posted.
I’ve also finally updated the trivia page (link over there in the sidebar) with some new stats, some based on the survey. Some of those may be more interesting than the tropes stuff.
And that’s it for today. Check back later this week for reviews!
