Pony Stories 316

04 Jan

This is a test. Writing this post up using my fancy new mini-tablet. Which I got out of mind crushing boredom during my holiday trip when I had run out of reading !material, had run out of ideas to write, and no transportation from the hotel. Oh, and no pay-per-view movies or anything at the hotel.

Anyway, I’ve enjoyed the gizmo quite a bit. Typing on the had been surprisingly easy and fun. It’s only four or so inches across, so the onscreen keyboard is small enough that I use one hand and it’s really smooth and easy. Doesn’t have access to all the bells and whistles of doing it on the site itself. Doing the links is a pain. Would be a good way to do the intro bits though.

Stories covered below the break:
-Teacher’s Pet by Pascoite
-My Ponyville by Earl Grey
– Insomnia by Pale Horse

Teacher’s Pet by Pascoite

That didn’t go where I suspected. Good story though. Actually got an emotional reaction out of me when I realized what was going on. Just a touch of sad.

My Ponyville by Earl Grey

Just another day in the small town of Ponyville. The ex-mayor getting recruited by a secret resistance group to defeat a swarm of invisible mind-controlling bugs. I wish this could be an episode. Maybe a two-parter about the mayoral election.

Insomnia by Pale Horse

A character study of Princess Celestia that manages to hit all the right notes. A few writing errors, but on the whole I can easily see this as something Princess Celestia actually wrote. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes to read Celestia stories, or even anyone who just pikes character studies

    Insomnia was a good read. It did what most satisfying bits of fic do: It made me want to write!

    What brand/model of mini-tablet did you get? I love my Kindle Fire, but it’s getting pretty old and I’m thinking of getting a replacement.

      Hisenese Sero 8? Something like that. I’m liking it more and more as i get used to it. It has actually been really helpful for reading ponyfic and then writing reviews. Getting up to find paper after finishing a story has always been a flow breaker. Now I just switch over to the google docs app and write my thoughts up right after finishing the ebook. I like thus minitablet because it has a lot of functionality I am liking, but isn’t big enough to use as a internet browser or play games on so it avoids being a time waster that way. I am kind of particular about screen size.

        Great! I’ll certainly consider it.
