Pony Stories 353

08 Mar

What if the ponies don’t have an alphabetical language. Moreso, what if their symbol language was actually just cutie marks. Each one referencing a pony in the past. Their entire written language could be like that one star trek episode where the alien can only speak in metaphor. Which mostly just leads to explaining Spike’s confusion in the first episode when he doesn’t know how to write ‘brink’. He just didn’t know which long-ago pony represents that one in this crazy metaphor-based pony written language.

My Little Twinkle by Next Gen Wonderbolt

Eh, kind of mediocre. The writing quality wavers in and out and it’s a generic premise with nothing that really stands out. Lots of telling Luna felt this or Luna felt that.

Little White Lie by Vargras

Not quite sure about this one. Interesting idea, but I can’t see it fitting in mlp at all. Not to mention that everything else aside, having one of the element bearers missing kind of screws things up. Plus how would Applejack earn the element of honesty in the first place? Decent writing, but too many things just don’t fit and the story kind of falls apart. Well, not that it is really a full story in the first place.

Blue Steel Railway by writer

Hmm. Another one I’m not sure about. Decent story, and I lied how the body language was handled. Just not sure I liked it.

    Oh man, ignoring the fact that truly metaphorical languages are pretty freaking hard to conceptualize, that would be so cool. 😀

      (Of course, they do have an alphabet, because “It was under EEEEEEE!”)

        I think you mean it was under Eeee!, the pony who studied ancient prophecies and artifacts and was always really excited. So those sorts of books are filed under his cutie mark, a broadly smiling book. His parents just liked weird names.
