To answer a author’s comment over on fimfiction. Sure, reviewers like like to be acknowledged, but the real attention grabber was asking for a ‘meh’ response from us. Especially on one of Aragon’s stories. I don’t think he could get a honest ‘meh’ reaction out of me if he tried. I’m still surprised that John Perry had a meh reaction to it.
Fun, but lots of visual humor that would have worked better as an episode. Even so, this was pretty funny. If you like comedy you should give this a read. Rarity as a prankster is a hilariously cool idea.
Really liked this one. This version of Celestia is quite possibly my favorite. Wise, but not all-knowing. This story is something of a look at both Celestia and Cadance. It explores both of them with a good amount of skill.
Somewhat amusing if a bit average. The most amusing (unintentionally) bit was Twilight’s line “There is no such thing as murder”.
The use of language is over the top fancy. The author seems to want every bit of scenery description, every character thought, and every action to be flowery poetry. I’d recommend trying the first chapter to see if you can handle it. Not bad, exactly, but way over the top.
One mention of nuclear war, plus it mentions several religions (not specific ones, just that there were several of them before the cataclysm). This seems more like basic post-apocalyptic fiction than Fallout: Equestria. The story needed more time getting to know the character and the stable before leaving it. My complaints about the thematic troubles aside, there were a lot of neat ideas just in the stable that would have been cool to explore. Another problem was that our main character gets a sunny bright and clear sky when he gets out. Which takes away one of the cool features of the FO:E world.
I didn’t finish this. I ended up stopping when the main character ran across some pegasi fighting with somepony and he immediately thought of the pegasi as enemies. For no reason he considered them horrible villains. Someone from a stable would have no reason to consider pegasi evil or villainous. It’s a pity. I like the FO:E world, but I’m not sure this author does. I might be interested in seeing a more independent fanfic this author writes.
I believe this should be classified as a crackfic, though a somewhat tame one by most measurements of that sort of thing. It was amusing, if a little too long for the joke.
I didn’t finish this one. Was just too bland, cliche, and full of fanfiction mistakes. I got up to the point where the main character, a idealist introvert who joined the royal guard, is having a bad day. He gets bullied, is saved by Shining Armor who then takes him to see Princess Celestia and Princess Luna. All of which happens on his very first day of royal guard training. Given the name of the main character is the same as the author’s fimfiction name, I’d have to say it looks like the story is a by-the-numbers self-insert wish fulfillment. Not the worst I’ve seen, but still not very good.
