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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
