Pony Stories 165

24 Jun

Pretty sure I’ve got the big master list of reviews fully updated. At least as updated as I get. No stories without review links and caught up on the stories I’ve got listed among all the review peoples/sites I’m following. It’s kind of weird to not have any work to do on it given how busy it’s made me. Cutting back on what I was putting on it really helped. Fun fact: I’ve been doing so many Google searches for stories and reviews on fimfiction recently, which uses Google search, that I’m pretty sure Google suspects I’m some kind of automated bot. It keeps asking me to prove I’m a human because there is ‘suspicious activity’ coming from my computer.

Last minute edit: Decided to mess around with layout stuff, don’t panic. The choices of free themes was a bit limited, so I finally decided on just tossing in a background image. Bonus points if you know what it’s from.

Family Matters by Aragon

I really liked this one. Not only is it funny with good characters, but I’ve got a soft spot for stories in this style. All dialogue (mostly, anyway) where any of the activities going on are described by the characters talking instead of explicitly shown. This author remains one of my personal favorite fanfic authors. This would make a great short animation, or even better as a audio play. I just re-read it again while writing this and it’s still as funny the second time. I actually read this one before I read Hell Of A Time. In fact I’ve read this one -twice- before I even touched that one. This one is the superior comedy in my opinion.

Fluttershy Discovers Animal Crackers by Art Inspired

Pretty much what the title says. Would make a neat animation, even if it’s not long enough for a full episode. Would make a fun b-plot for an episode though. I found it funny and it lasts just as long as it needs to without wearing out the joke.

The Conversion Bureau by Blaze

This is badly written. I only got maybe a third of the way into it before giving up. I have no idea why or how this got popular enough that I’ve heard about it so much. Project Sunflower is pretty much the exact same premise/plot/setting except that the story is both interesting and well-written. I would recommend skipping this one.

Forecast by Jondor

Somewhat interesting premise, but kind of mediocre execution. Probably not worth reading unless you are a big Applejack and Rainbow Dash relationship fan. Not that it would be to read this if you weren’t. Mostly bland with a few funny jokes here and there. Worth reading, just don’t expect too much.

Unrequited Lust by DawnFade

Fun little story. The ending is what makes it memorable. Not that it would be bad as-is without the last little bit, but it would be much more forgettable. If you liked Bitter Harvest, you will probably enjoy this one.

    The funny thing about the original TCB story is it’s unfinished and never shall be otherwise. So you’re not missing much by cutting out. Few stories that I’ve forced myself to read have been such a chore to get through, and I’m glad there wasn’t more. c.c
