More pony fan fiction thoughts. I know, I’m surprised as you are. Which is to say not very surprised.
This story is really good. I don’t always click with this author’s stories, but when I do I enjoy them a lot. Just more evidence that InquisitorM is a really good author who’s brain occasionally works at odd angles to mine (and others I assume). Has a very interesting take on Gryphons, one of the most original on the subject I’ve run across. Also lets us take a look at what things might be like in the old homelands of the ponies after the three main tribes left to go and found Equestria so long ago. I really want to see fanart of the shaman character now. Pony in a bear-pelt cloak is just cool.
Been waiting for this Lunaverse story to finish up for quite a while. Bit disappointed considering the long wait. Decent story, just not what I was looking for. The main reason I like the Lunaverse is the fun characters, how they interact with each other, and getting a fun twist on events from the show. This was a good adventure story with cool stuff, but we don’t get much focus on the characters and the events are original and not really connected to the show at all. So, good story meets misplaced expectations after a long wait. Avoid those mistakes and if you like the Lunaverse you should check this one out. Also, post-S4 finale minor spoiler: Tirek being weak when he gets out of Tartarus is apparently canon in the show. Huh.
This was disgusting. Also funny as heck. Totally dialogue with no scenery or action prose. Which is probably for the best. Don’t need vivid descriptions of the scenery in this situation. Certainly don’t want it. Yet I still feel better about reading this then the Rarity/ninjas story a while back.
