Oh goodness, I get busy for a couple days and the review blog just starts booming! This is very great, though, Malus and DJay have been putting out a lot of fantastic reviews.

I want to note that my reviews will likely end up being weekly. I do take a lot of time to read, making notes as I go and picking what I think are important points to mention. Rest assured, I will read every one of the suggested blogs at some point and do my best to show my honest opinion!

I loved the review of The first four amalgam blogs.

Small comment on Cold and Lonely it's actually one of my least favourite things I've written since at the time of writing I was not actually entirely sure what I was doing and the events were as confusing a mess for me as they were for the readers. The following blog Dawghouse was actually created mainly to fix most of the plot holes and answer the questions that I could think of an answer for.


Take your time and refresh before hitting the last blogs since they are the big ones.

I am totally willing to wait. It wouldn't be enjoyable at all if you reviewed the rest in a burnt out state.


I'm not crazy I just use a different definition of sanity...

The Forum Blunt Instrument. "Because sometimes the only way to get through to someone is with a sledgehammer."

Archon of Chaos.

Leader of the Cult of Filik.

Amalgam series goes in this order
Prestidigitation>Urban Malefic>The World Through These Eyeholes>Cold and Lonely Days>Metaphysical Fiction and Dawghouse>No Gods No Masters>Unlikely World>Epilogic
>Cresting The Wave

Extra stories that tie into The Somniverse at points and are not linked in the stories.
Sing to me Songs of The darkness>The One and Only
Last Rites

DJay, I shall like to put up The Day of Your Arrival for review, since it is over now. However, it does crossover with Plagued by Secrets and The Games We Play (as well as Trials of a Heavy Sleeper), I still think it can stand on its own.

My Finished Stories.

My Ongoing Stories:
Channel Fear (informational, educational, cynical)
The Supernatural Anaesthetist (seeing where science takes us)
Once There Was (the king is the kingdom)
An Old Man's Winter Night (at the winter of the world)
Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed (working for the man)
The Secret History of the World (unstuck in time)
Notes from the Underground (a place to stay)
Phantasmagorical (a bedtime story)

Glad you liked it, even if it wasn't exactly fresh or stand-out among Fearblogs. The Shady Lawn arc was HEAVILY influenced by To Light a Candle. Things generally get more original as time goes on (although I'm currently only two blogs further on from Continuity Glue). It actually helps that I haven't read that many blogs, so I won't be so heavily influenced in the future, whether intentionally or not.

But, yeah, I purposely tied up the various loose ends, because at the time I still wasn't completely sure I was going to make any sequels or anything, and I hadn't decided to include all the creepypastas I'd written at that time either. But that one dream...well, you'll see. ;)

Each story will generally be stand-alone, but with more value to the reader if they've also read the other stories, with the exception of Reality Falls Apart (out of necessity, since it has the task of bringing everything together and bringing the story to an end).

Out of curiosity, did you read the hidden text on some posts? You see, if readers don't realize that there's some hidden text, or if they're not sure how to access it, they could be losing some important story information. Should I do something about it, like reveal the text in a comment or something, so the reader doesn't miss out?

Anyway, can't wait for the review of I Am Not Insane. For easier organization it might be helpful for you to know that the creepypastas are directly relevant to the blog they are listed before.

I hope you think my writing improves as the saga goes along! :D

Oh no, I read the hidden text. You did a good job of making it obvious early on by lampshading it and having the shadows get mad at Nameless because of it. This makes the reader know that Nameless can post hidden text so they know what to look for later on.

OK, good!

Also, to let you know, I might change the name of The Sound of Silence, since I've found out there are like 2 other blogs with that name already. I might not, though, if I can't think of a good alternative. Letting you know since you list them all at the beginning of the review.

Oh, good. So it wasn't horrible. :)

I think you might find it interesting where Evan's story is going.

And the Wooden Girl's, for that matter. *cryptic foreshadowing*

Oh, right. I'd like to put Misery Always Knows up for review. You can also read fnord if you want, but if you do, make sure to read it after MAK, because it contains spoilers.


Blogs in Progress:
Dreamless Darkness: Gotta face the strange.

Finished Blogs:
Misery Always Knows: Deal, or no deal?

Creepypastas:
"Whispers of Mutiny" // "Repeat After Me" // "Cold Oblivion" // "A Feast For Crows"

Assume anything not here is on hiatus.

Alright, so I'm going to go ahead and put Bring Me a Dream up for review. I'm not exactly happy with it and it was my first blog, but I think it would be good for me to hear some other opinions.

Also, I edited it enough to be comfortable putting it in my signature, so it must be better than it was.


A writer’s brain is full of little gifts, like a piñata at a birthday party. It’s also full of demons, like a piñata at a birthday party in a mental hospital. The truth is, it’s demons that keep a tortured writer’s spirit alive, not Tootsie Rolls. Sure they’ll give you a tiny burst of energy, but they won’t do squat for your writing. So treat your demons with the respect they deserve, and with enough prescriptions to keep you wearing pants.

Just realized PandoraParadox sent a review to the site five days ago. >_< Sorry for the incompetence, that's been posted to the blog now.

My review of New Amateur Paranormal Taskforce!

A bit of a negative review, in retrospect. But hey, I'm not gonna like every blog. What's a review site without some negativity?

The Mythology of Empathy (Eight songs, nine tracks. Welcome death.)
Ancestor (Five tracks. Death of the Artist and Chinese mythology.)
