This intro part is always the hardest thing to write. We don’t all live in the wild country where you can just go out and see wildlife, or have active physical routines that need de-greasing of bicycles. Well, I guess I can recommend anyone who can see Ernest & Celestine. It is a wonderful French animated film. Great art, good comedy, and it was a joy to watch. I saw it in French with subtitles and thought the voices were just perfect, but if all you can find playing is English language versions it is still going to be worth it. Otherwise, check below for three more pony fanfic thoughts.
Warmth by Dark Avenger Another story that deserves the sad tag. Good story. Just a fragment, a true slice of life in the fullest sense.
The Fight for Cranberry Hill by Insert Pen Name Really good story. First one if a while that I’ve been impressed by with its use of language. Evocative without being overly flowery. A few really fun turns of phrase, and a great show of how important you take things when you are a kid. Plus it’s fun seeing intense (but light-heated) World War 2 metaphors/references used for a snowball fight.
Blinded by Fashion by Esle Ynopemos This would make a fun episode. Not that the style is quite there, but the story would be funny with a visual element. Then again it did a really good job at giving us the perspective of someone who has been struck blind, so you’d lose that. So maybe it’s better as is. Which is praise in itself. The author did a really good job using the advantages of written language to good effect. It would be a challenge adapting the story to another form of media and keep the same level of quality. Would require just taking the basic concept and re-writing it. Anyway, this was a very funny story. Very episodic with a setup/problem/resolution arc that was nicely paced.
