In pony fan fiction, the people are entertained by two separate yet equally important groups: the authors, who write the stories; and the reviewers, who review them.
Fairly typical Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo fanfic. Let’s call it familyshipping for lazyness sake. Scootaloo isn’t an orphan, but has an alcoholic mother instead. Rainbow Dash is all along on the holiday as well. So they have a moment basicaly being family for each other. I found it sweet, but fairly shallow. Lots of other stories have done better with these characters. For a better treatment of this sort of thing I’d recommend Spellbound Fireflies.
This is good, but a bit odd. A story about the author of the Daring Do books talking with the mane six, but not in the main version of Equestria. At least I don’t think it is. It is a interesting look at creativity and doing what you love instead of what is popular, but it’s hard pinning it in any particular place worldbuilding-wise. A good read, but might drive more analytical readers a bit nuts. I’m still not sure if the mane six were actually there, memories, hallucenations, something else, or what.
Another light and fluffy story about Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo. Pretty much a cotton candy fanfic. Sweet, but nothing really there. If you like stories about Scootaloo and her big sister Rainbow Dash, and you’ve read all the good ones, this will be a fun distraction. If you aren’t a big fan of that particular trope you won’t miss anything by skipping this one.
This was, well, random. Like really random. The last 2/3rds of it was surreal stream-of-consciousness randomness. However, the first part was fall over funny and I liked it a lot. So I’d recommend reading up until Twilight is a cat, then suggest you stop there.
Hmm. Interesting take on the character. This bits and pieces of this story don’t quite bled together, but it’s still a decent read.
Here’s a short story that is just begging for more. Well written, interesting glimpses of character, complete without being self-contained. I really want to know why Rainbow Dash goes with Fluttershy so the shy pegasus can get drunk every now and then.
