I am here because I see it best to be here. There is creativity everywhere, but the web is where most of it can be found, and deserves praise that it may never receive in the real world. Admittedly my scope of creation at this time is limited to poetry and MLP, but this is temporary as I like to think my ability is far broader than any one medium. I will be a stern critic and I expect the same in return as long as a professional level of tact is used. I will never say "you suck" or anything of the sort without justification and so I do not EVER want to see it directed at me.

Willing to beta-read/proofread although more than likely, I would have contacted you (the author) before you find me. ONLY WILLING TO TAKE ON ONE MORE BETA READ ASSIGNMENT. CURRENTLY AT THE EMPLOY OF FOUR PROJECTS AND I FEEL TAKING MORE THAN FIVE WOULD HINDER MY ABILITY TO PERFORM FOR YOU GUYS.

Since I refer to them often in pm's and reviews my current top 10: constantly subject to revision
1) Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying
2) Oldnew Luna
3) Warming Up
4) Royal Pleasures
5) Big Sister Rainbow
6) The Ballad of Firebrand and Olivine
7) Eclipse/Ruby Hearts (Two stories, one amazing plot. Romantic and tragic, failure to enjoy is on the reader)
8) A Weekend Maid for Spike (A favorite from FiM fiction)
9) Conversations between Fausticorn and Princess Celestia
10) Hour of Twilight

Works cut from top 10 but worthy of note:
Filly fooling (admittedly I am VERY disappointed with the way the ending was handled) (MAY be a part of my top 10)
Pony Scales
The Changeling's Dragon - Admittedly a clop 1-shot, but Spike and Queen Chrysalis with a true romance, what's not to like?
The Twilights of Our Hearts
The Dragon in Twilight - One of few works I have actually re-read.

Completed works deserving of praise:
Spike's Luna - A cute little reinterpretation of the events At The Gala.
Twilight Sparkle's First Date - Very cute, stayed true to Canon (personality wise)...wish it was longer.
Ladies Don't Freak Out
Cuddling -...a sentimental Raridash shipping
How to Woo Your Lady in Nine Easy Steps - The first beyond awesome slice of life MLP fanfic I have found. Seriously, one can learn from this!

Honorable and or in-progress works poised to climb:
With All Due Respect, Luna
Spike's Rainbow Dash
Unplanned, Unexpected, Unwanted (I am editor for this one)
Luna's Knights
Fire & Rain - seriously it is "in progress" but go read this one! A top 10 guarantee once finished!!!
The Shining Fireruby
Ponies in Love - In the mood for some FlutterDash? This story will NOT disappoint.
A Noise in the Closet
Sapphire - Featuring a Fim dragon OC of my creation
Sibling Rivalry
Of Age - One of the best sparity stories that has ever been my pleasure to read! A top 10 contender

Works of Astounding quality but left HORRIBLY incomplete: (Special ranking for top 10 quality stories that were left to die and I wish I could un-see)
One More Year by Life's Eagle

One may notice there are some clop works here, yes, but all of these works bask within the realm of STORY. That is what it takes for a work of fiction to hold water, a constructed plot-line that informs as well as entertains. This random critic's opinions, in retrospect, mean nothing at all, and with 100's of stories I still intend to read; this list will not last. That is all I have to say at this point. Look to potentially see two works of my own composition soon. I am conceiving within my mind an Alicorn origins story as well as an epic bout with an evil so far unparalleled in Equestria, we will see.
