Pony Stories 399

Fun trivia from the big master review list: The word ‘Crime’ shows up in only two titles/authors. The first being Crime and Funishment by Aragon, and the second is Futa Chrysalis and Twilight Sparkle Fight Crime: A Futa Chrysalis and Twilight Sparkle Adventure by Courts. Obviously this is a new genre, just as soon as we figure out if the two have anything else in common. Oh, and in other big master review list trivia: Paul’s Persistently Protracted Practice Pieces by PaulAsaran is the 5000th story on the list.

  • The Talk by The Descendant
  • The Unsuitable by Gabriel LaVedier

The Talk by The Descendant

Good, but not for me. Just was kind of.. Not quite sure how to put it. The author does his normal excellent job at characters, but ad sometime happens the characters are just so different from how my mind works I don’t really connect with them. So, I’d certainly recommend this but I’m not entirely sure I enjoyed reading it. I still think that the author gets a little carried away when he tries to quantify Twilight Sparkle and Spike’s relationship, but that’s not exactly new.

The Unsuitable by Gabriel LaVedier

Far too many footnotes. This would have been better served with a glossary at the end instead. All the footnotes were really distracting. As for the story itself, well, there wasn’t one. It was merely an excuse to pile a lot of Olde English insults as possible. Not bad, certainly, but not a story either. Plus the last paragraph or so sad just confusing. It seems like it is from a different story entirely, to be honest. If you want to read Princess Luna using olde English insults on nobles, this is the story for you. If you don’t, there isn’t anything else here.
