I figured it out. Crystal’s Wishes is a story that lacks substance, but not quality. Which is why it threw me off because in most stories the two are at least somewhat connected. Not so in that one.
Eh, had a few funny bits. A little more meta and/or random than I enjoy.
A brief character exploration of Spike. Pretty good and I wanted more. Raises questions but doesn’t even imply the answers.
A thoughtful piece. Not sure what else to say about it. Ponyified version of a Asimov short story. Which the author pulled off quite well in my opinion. This is a story I wish I had more to say about, because there was some interesting stuff in it. Just kinda… was a story I enjoyed and thought had some interesting stuff in it.
