Pony Stories 406

08 May

Getting too big a backlog of stories. At that point where my reactions to a story aren’t going to be posted for like a week. I like to be able to respond to things a bit faster than that. Say if another person recommends a story, or another story gets lots of attention, I sometimes would like to be able to read and put my own thoughts out here promptly. I attempted to solve that by reading a bunch of long stories back to back, but the third one kind of killed my momentum. So, gonna crowd-source this since my own read-later list has run out of the longer stories. You guys should give me the longest (wordcount-wise) stories on your to-read lists.

Big Master Review List stats: Authors: [2196], Stories [5042], Total Reviews: [8053]

  • Rise of the Phoenix Empress by Chengar Qordath
  • Flight of the Magpie by DuncanR
  • There, They’re… by FanNotANerd

Rise of the Phoenix Empress by Chengar Qordath

An interesting alternate universe. The main character reads much like the Sunset Shimmer of his other work, but not identical. The same character in a different situation basically. Anyway, this was quite good and was an enjoyable read.

Flight of the Magpie by DuncanR

A little to clever in some places, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. Was an interesting look at the subject matter. Which is something of a spoiler so I won’t mention what that subject matter is. I will say that the thief is caught in the first chapter and the rest if the story is the inspector dealing with abstract philosophic concepts dealing with the thief’s guilt and/or innocence.

There, They’re… by FanNotANerd

A very good adventure story in the feel of the show. This could easily be a two part episode(s). I liked it much better than the other story I read a while back about something wrong with writing and Twilight has to fix it.

      Knew I should have been more specific! I’ve got that one on my incomplete list. As soon as it finishes up I’ll be reading it.

      In fact, I have reviewed one of those. The other three are getting downloaded though. Two of them are stories I was waiting to finish up and forgot they finished.

    Inner Glory – Erindor
    Days of Wasp and Spider – Luna-tic Scientist

      Cool, thanks. Already read three of those, but that should keep me going for a while with long stuff.

        Now that I’m thinking about it, I probably added some of them because of your reviews!

        Well, after actually looking at my RIL, I find it’s The Games We Play by Absolute Anonymous.

      Piff, those are easy.

      Really good.
      Really good.
      Good.
      Didn’t finish due to style choices.
      Actually coming up on the review-ish rotation in the next couple of days.
