Whew. Another one just under the wire. Really need to start checking that I’ve posted earlier in the day. Also, as a warning, I’m going to start posting my old reviews over on FimFiction once again. So if you are following me over there you will want to brace yourself for another while of multiple notifications a day from my FimFiction blog.
- Anything But The Gala by Ponibius
- To Whom It May Concern by Pascoite
A fun story. Falls into or if my favorite sub genres. Not sure what to call it though. High fantasy slice of life? Anyway, the majority of the story is Princess Luna talking about the gala while she and another Alicorn Princess are dealing with some terrible problem. Like a demon or evil warlock seeking a powerful artifact or a mind control monster. I find that sort of thing really fun, that the world shaking adventure stuff is just sort of the nine to five job. Anyway, I will liked this even though the last chapter was the weakest.
Eh, not bad. Most of it was even decent quality. Didn’t have the extremely perceptive Rarity I enjoy the most, which is a shame. I like it when Rarity is analyzing even little clue and word choice in a conversation. The end, however, was a letdown. It is just too hard to believe that Rarity would be married to Blueblood. Or say that she still loves him. How the heck did Blueblood manage that? So really, this story started out strong and had a gradual downward life of quality. Never gets bad mind you. Just kind of disappointing. Yet it’s short enough that it is still worth a read if you want a bit if sad shipping fluff to fill a few minutes.
