So, watching the old x-files show. It’s not very good. Has that spark of creativity and sincerity that makes shows last in the mind of fans, but the first episode is a trainwreck and the second isn’t much better. In vaguely related stuff, I just reread the xcom/mlp crossover fanfic and it was just as good the second time. Guess I just like xcom a lot, since it got me playing it again. Playing xcom while watching/listening to x-files in the background is kinda fun for a little while.

Little scene setting piece. No story really, only a teeny tiny bit of character building for Celestia. It’s a simple mood piece that works quite well.
Heehee. The writing isn’t inspired, but its decently good. Plus the twist is hilarious. Lots of good mental images in here. If I headn’t been reading it in a public place I would have been laughing out loud quite a bit.
I ended up liking this more than I thought I would. To the point that it pissed me off when it ended so abruptly. Everything had just started to come together and a big emotional moment happened, then *bam* no more story. I suspect is is just where the author stopped writing it rather then the actual end of the story. Still, up to that point it was enjoyable. Kind of question the decision to not include Pinkie Pie or Fluttershy. Along with several other plotholes, but the story was good regardless. Some good worldbuilding as well. It also has some Trixie character development, mostly off screen sadly, but I found it beliveable. The jumping around in time and perspective character can be neat when done well. However it really needs better scene transitions. The website version might have seperator lines, but if so they got zapped by the ebook conversion. Recommended if you don’t mind the abrupt out of nowhere end of things.
