Pony Stories 161

20 Jun

Catching up, catching up. I ended up reading something like 30-40 fanfics on my trip. Even at the new-ish rate of five a post that will be at least a week until I’m caught up. So let’s get started! Lots of good fics this time.

Rarity Hates Rainbow Power by CatsWithGats

Pretty much what I was expecting. Which is pretty dang hilarious. There has been a lot of fluff fics from the season 4 finale, but this is one of the better ones. If you like the idea of a drunk Rarity writing a letter of complaint to Princess Celestia about the fashion disaster of her rainbow power form, well, this is exactly the story you are looking for.

Sol Invictus by Soge

Not a story by itself, exactly. It is a wonderful use of imagery and language. More of a look at a place where stories happen. Quite wonderful. I would use this as a great example of a story that has almost nothing of the show in it, but still feels very much a pony fanfic.

Fluttershy’s Night Out by Bad Horse

This was pretty good. Not exactly what I was expecting, but still good. Writing was better than average. Basically a character study of Fluttershy. I would put this into the category of before-show stories. Felt like proper fan fiction; stuff you couldn’t put in the show, but still managing to follow the same themes and morals.

Bucking All Day by Mister Friendly

Heehee. This was the best kind of silly. I love language based humor, even just this type of misunderstanding what is being said. Was a very fun read.

Five Things That Never Happened to Twilight Sparkle by obabscribbler

Cool concept. Irregular execution of that concept. Five stories in this, each one a moment from the show twisted around. First one I really liked. Second was good, but really dark. The Discord bit (#3) was just kind of bleh. Fourth was the wedding and doesn’t give any idea of the results of the alternate version at all. Last one was better, but still left a little to be desired. I’d recommend this but it could have been a lot better.
