As of last night I’ve started to read the Dangerous Game contest entries. Hopefully I’ll have gotten through them all and have reviews to start posting for them by the time the contest has gotten past the audience participation stage. Not sure if I should post the reviews for them before the reader votes are supposed to go in. I mean I’ve got at least a week worth of reviews backed up so it’s not exactly a immediate problem, but I’ll have to think about it. Or just put off the decision until I’ve forgotten about it and just post them as the next ones from the notebook.
Yeah, this is pretty much how I picture social life in Equestria, especially in Ponyville. Sword & Sorcery slice-of-life basically. Clean, simple writing. I really liked this. Would love to read more just like it with these characters.
I’m not entirely sure what the point of this story is. It’s dull and nothing really happens. It’s a slice of life without the life. Writing is average at best, mostly mediocre. Go read Wonderbolt instead since I’m pretty sure it’s along the same lines.
Pretty good story, if a little odd. Good writing and neat viewpoint. Just not a lot of pony here. Did like the implication that the insects in Ponyville are smarter than those elsewhere.
Short little bit that is quite well done. Not really a story in itself, just a moment with Twilight just before Cadance’s real wedding. I actually found it a bit touching.
Sweet, if a little shallow. Not in the subject matter, but the author doesn’t quite have the skill for deep or touching emotion so a lot of this story felt a bit flat. If you like Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash stories, this one will probably be worth a look. If you aren’t a big fan of ‘big sister Dash’ this won’t convert you. (Later Edit: Want to mention that this review came off a bit harsh. Pascoite is normally really good at the emotional stuff, and I felt that this one was just a misstep. A casualty of me not paying attention to a story’s author when writing these.)
