Pony Stories 390

20 Apr

So, taking away cutie marks. I don’t think the CMC will like that very much. I’m picturing an AU where the three of them find the village instead and start a guerrilla war against a pony they would see as pure evil. They are trying to earn their cutie marks and this pony is taking cutie marks away from ponies? Time for them to figure out how to turn tree sap into explosives.

Big Master Review List stats: Authors: [2175], Stories [4969], Total Reviews: [7877]. Just updated THE MASTER LIST main page to add in all the reviewers on the list, even the ones that only have one review. Turns out I’ve linked to over 70 people on that thing.

Today’s reviews:

  • Riding Herd by Steel Resolve
  • Fridge Horror by Aragon

Riding Herd by Steel Resolve

The moral of the story is that Rarity likes sex. This was decent, though gives little information about why the three have hooked up. Its just kinda there. Could do worse for disconnected shipping, but could do better even if you wanted nothing but shipping fluff. Sooo… Kinda in the middle and/or mediocre? I’ve enjoyed a lot of the poly romance stories, but this particular trio just doesn’t really click, in my head or this story.

Fridge Horror by Aragon

Another hilarious story knocked out of the park. Had a good blend of Terry Pratchett and the author’s style. Though after the beginning the author’s style dominates. If you like his random comedic writing, read this. If you don’t like that sort of thing don’t. I enjoyed it immensely and plan to add it to the read out loud to my mom list of stories. Mostly because reading this out loud is going to be so fun.

    Over 70? I knew there were quite a few of us out there, but that’s still pretty impressive!

      That’s counting at least a dozen people who aren’t reviewers but recommended or signal boosted a story once and I added it. But yeah, actual reviewers who did at least a couple is probably in the 40-50 range.

    *Laughing hysterically* Yes yes. To give you a little context, Herd was not a full fledged shipping story. It was a character study on a potential trio, and how they would interact. We have here a romantic couple, Appledash, who had a fling with Rarity, and decided to try something a bit more permanent. Of course, fashion-horse feels a little unsure of how she can fit in with orange strong and blue fast, so it’s difficult right now. They all love each other as friends, of course, so there is that, but a relationship takes more than that. But, the one thing they all like to do without question is… well. I may revisit them someday, they seemed like a fun little group.
