Another theme post. I read these at various points, but given they are all by the same author and in the same vein I wanted to give them their own post. A whole bunch of short story collections by the same author who wrote Bitter Harvest and Blinded By Fashion. Two stories I really enjoyed.
Just before posting edit: I’ve decided on a new big master list. If you would go over here and give it a look I would appreciate it. I haven’t gotten the links in yet, that’s step two. Just want to make sure it displays and see what people think. Also, in a more style question, now that it’s a spreadsheet, should I keep it all one page or maybe do separate pages for each letter for sorting purposes? I really wish I could get it wider, but the limitations of the blog seem to be blocking that particular goal.
A bunch of Fluttershy shorts. A lot of good stuff in here. A wide variety of genre, from serious to comedy and everything else outside those two. Highly recommended if you like Fluttershy and plain recommended otherwise.
A fun collection of shorts. This author is quite good. I enjoyed all of these. A few aren’t exactly Applejack stories, but that is such a small complaint. I’m looking forward to reading the other character collections.
The Rarity collection. These were a lot of good stories in here. Just didn’t like it as much as the Applejack collection. Which is odd, since I like Rarity a bit more than Applejack. Might just be my current mood. Also, this collection seemed to have more dark and sad stories in it than the previous one.
Apparently I totally forgot to write down any thoughts after I read this one. So… I have no memories of specifics. Collections of lots of semi-disconnected short stories don’t really stick in my head. I do remember that I liked it. Checking the first story…. Oh man, that one was hilarious. Skimming the titles it’s coming back to me. These were really good and I loved a lot of them.
Another one of these collections. This on had lots of good stuff in it. A nice variety of stories as well. Didn’t seem weighted toward one genre/tag or anything. Rainbow Dash seemed to be paired up with Rarity the most for the romantic stuff, a good amount with Pinkie Pie, and only once with Applejack. There was also a really cool story that involved where cutie marks came from. I’m totally grabbing it and sticking it in my personal headcanon.
This is not a short story collection, but figured I would tuck it in here. Read it because I vaguely remembered reading it and wanted to double-check. Turns out it is a slightly expanded version of one of the stories in the Rarity collection. Which is why the description seemed so familiar. It’s pretty good. It is only slightly expanded, but I would probably recommend this as a good introduction to this author if you weren’t sure about trying the collections.
