Pony Stories 258

29 Oct

Now for some review list clean-up. One of the stories today, and several of the stories tomorrow will be ones I read a long while ago and apparently never typed up my reactions for them. The things we discover when sorting stories into the new bookshelf system. So I’ll be re-reading them and giving a sort of new/old review. Today’s exploration of the forgotten past is Applejack is Full of Squirrels. In other news, time for another survey. anyone enjoying the redirection posts over on Fimfiction? As in, is that now the primary way anyone is now getting to these posts instead of bookmarks/address typing? Also, piece of trivia. I cannot repost a review of Martial Bliss without giving it another read. Still hilarious.

Chompers by SpaceCommie

Anyone who hasn’t wanted to go to the dentist will probably enjoy this one. Simple and concise. It’s just a really brief scene, but I enjoyed it a lot. Given how short it is there really is no reason not to give this one a try. I felt that the Applejack here felt really authentic.

Okay, I swear I’ve written a review for this story at least once and possibly twice before. Yet no searches bring it up so either I imagined it or it’s in one of the journals and I never typed it up. So here goes a re-read. Silly story. One of the most absurd of SS&E’s. Given his stories that’s saying something. However it is wonderfully written and manages immersion even with the absurd premise and events. So if you want ridicous comedy you want to read this story.

Very short, but has a wonderful self-centered Prince Blueblood. I think my favorite part was his arguing that since Twilight Sparkle was immortal, every moment wasted was a moment of his mortal life she could be spending with him in adoration.

    “Chompers” looks like just my sort of thing: I’ve been looking for some short AJ comedies. (SS&E’s can go on the RiL list too, but I may need to take a run at that one…)

      If you want short AJ comedy, then Chompers is exactly what you want. Full of Squirrels doesn’t actually have Applejack in it. Just a AJ shaped mech for small rodents.
