Huh. The top search over in the top searches bit of the mini-stats for the website says “conversations with dead ponies”. Why would that lead someone here? I mean, that’s just weird. Also, can’t find the where in the world views come from area. I’m sure it’s still there, just doesn’t seem to be as easy to find as before. Did find out that the blog has gotten 1,027 comments total. That’s a lot of comments, and only like half of them are mine. Now for your regularly scheduled (ha!) ponyfic reviews.

I do enjoy all dialogue stories. They are hard to pull off, but very enjoyable. This one is certainly good. Not as great as say, Family Matters, but still a fun read.
Something about SciFi and space travel that goes great with ponies in my head. Pretty much all I want in life is a grand pony space opera. This is not that, but has lots of things I enjoy in my space pony SciFi. It’s a happier version of Hello, Sedna in a way. Twilight by herself out in the empty black with only the memories of her friends to keep her company. Only, since this is a happier story, she’ll be getting back to them after the trip. It really does have the show theme of friendship as strength here. I’m a bit biased, I’ll probably recommend anything SciFi and/or space with ponies as long as its not a crime against language, but I’d recommend this one. Short and touching.
About half of a story, but I enjoyed it. Is fun to think about. The ideas and implications are much more interesting than the story itself. I wonder if Fluttershy gets any public service money? Either as a public vet, or as an animal negotiator like she did with the beavers that one episode. Zecora probably doesn’t pay taxes, but she doesn’t really use any public services. Her needs are a little less needing roads or fire departments and more dealing with timberwolves and poison joke fields. Huh. Wonder if Everfree forest is national park, crown protected wilderness, or if it continues to have what ever zoning the castle of the pony sisters had back when it was the center of government. Do we need a quest to venture deep into the abandoned castle to find the old official Diarchy approved stamp to make paperwork official now that Princess Luna is back?
