Actually got enough pony stories to put a post up. So the filler post about anime will be pushed until tomorrow. Which might be for the best because I might not have as much time tomorrow night to write up a post real quick at the last minute like I’ve been doing. Almost weird that I’ve got something scheduled ahead of time again. Been a while since I’ve managed that.
This was really good. A great mix of a bunch of comedy with a few sprinkles of serious stuff. Mostly comedy though. Had an interesting writing style too. Might have to read it again just to analyze it a bit more just to figure out how to describe it. Narration commentary? Comment Narration? Anyway, highly recommended and I’m going straight to the sequel.
The sequel to previous story. Not quite as good as the previous one. Mostly due to the focus of the story. I would have liked a more general slice of life story about the main character. My favorite parts were her talking with Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle. The ‘villain’ of the piece was the least enjoyable part. Which was kind of the point, he was meant to be unlikable. A personality type a bit more common on the internet and one I try to avoid. Still, it was a good story with bits of worldbuilding and fun characters.
This was really good. Hit my alicorn mythology and worldbuilding buttons just right. Longer than I expected and I ran into the same problem as I often have. Was on my kindle so long that I had forgotten what it was about. So went into it pretty much blind. A properly epic story that covers a lot of emotional ground. Once again I would have liked a bit more slice of life stuff, at the beginning really, but that’s just because I enjoy that sort of thing. The story itself is paced and balanced quite nicely. Just enough slice of life in the first half to make the rest have emotional impact. Several parts had me feeling really sad, which is fairly rare for me. Not quite enough to cry, but only two books have ever gotten that strong a emotional reaction out of me, so even coming close is impressive. So I would highly recommend this one. Just now went to check the story description and it really sells things short. It is so much more epic and touching than the simple premise makes it sound.
