Fanfics. Fanfics never change.

Except when they do. And they definitely have. I witnessed the shift of pony fanfics from being mostly hosted on Google Docs to being mostly hosted on FIMFiction and also on Google Docs. Why do I bring this up?

Fanfics aren't the only thing to change. You guys missed out on this, but I've read Fallout: Equestria and Fallout: Equestria - Murky Number Seven, but I really never told anyone what I thought about them. They're amazing, yes, but you won't really know why I find them amazing because I didn't liveblog them. If I go back into them, they won't be blind readthroughs.

Yeah, it sucks. I realized I should've started liveblogging my reactions to Murky Number Seven around five or so chapters in, but by then, it was already too late. I'm not making that same mistake again.

Here, I read the many Fallout: Equestria sidefics I haven't ever read before. And there's a lot of them.

I have a huge backlog of 25 sidefics I plan to read. I'm going to start this liveblog off with Fallout: Equestria - Project Horizons. After that. I'll cross that off the list and let the Dice Gods decide for me.

I've heard things, both good and bad, about Project Horizons. I have no idea what I'm getting into. One thing's for sure, though. I'm going to have to climb up the massive mountain of 70 chapters, possibly more, in order to get fully caught up. I managed to trek through Murky Number Seven's 26 chapters of massive 30k each chapters.

Strap in, it's going to be a wild ride!

Ooh, someone who isn't from the thread. Neato.

Wow, I never expected anyone to reply to the introduction. And no, I don't generally go to that thread, even though I know of it's existence.

Good to have a perspective from the outside, right?

Heh. Yeah. It's a bit more fun.

I did a liveblog on the original. Admittedly, my experience with the sidefics is limited. I'm stalled on chapter 6 of PH, a fic which I'm also liveblogging, though I have read Murky Number 7 (haven't read the most recent chapter, granted) and Duck and Cover.
