For those of you who were asking, I might have found the way to put comments in your RSS feeds. On the right hand sidebar of the blog, just below the recent posts section, should be a RSS link. Title should be something like RSS Comments? with a link just under that. Let me know if that is or is not the solution to the situation. As mentioned, I have no clue about RSS stuff.
A comment on that one post a few days ago that got all the comments (guess which one it was!) got me thinking. Which in turn led me to be curious. A story showing up on say Seattle’s Angels or The Royal Guard gets a bump of readers. Any of you authors noticed any kind of bump when I mention a story here? I mean, I’ve got at best 80-90 people reading on a semi-regular basis so it wouldn’t be a big one. Just curious if there has been anything noticeable.
In other news, FimFiction isn’t letting me post blogs. So the R4 posts will be taking a brief vacation while I try to figure that out.
- A Sky and its Anchor by blue harvest
- The First Time You See Her by Skywriter
- Where the Heart Is by Pascoite
I found this story to be very sweet. The prose is a bit flowery, but works. I can see Applejack thinking in a overly poetic fashion first thing in the morning, looking at her marefriend in the brief pre-dawn time before getting another hour or two of sleep.
Dotted Line gets a small cameo and references Martial Bliss. Both of which are awesome. I really enjoyed this. Skywriter continues to be one of my favorite writers, both ponyfic and other. He continues to have very high skill with concise and evocative prose. The downside is that this is just a bridge between stories. Basically a prologue for the main Cadance of Cloudsdale story. Which means it feels somwhat incomplete. Lots of great stuff, but at the end I was just getting into the swing of things and I want more. I re-read the other stories in the Cadance of Cloudsale cycle to lead up to this one and enjoyed them once again as well. So now back to the eternal wait for the next story to be finished.
Reminds me of Sun Princess. Which is the other really good story from Winoa’s perspective. Plus this story surprised me, which is always nice. Highly recommended.
