I avoid incomplete stories for a reason. I don’t like cliffhangers or not being able to get to the end of a story. Yet every now and then I go ‘well, I really want to know what happens and I am sure the most recent chapter will not be a terrible cliffhanger’ and I read a incomplete story. Which pretty much always leads to regret and agony. I recently re-read Days of Wasp and Spider again, and then I really wanted to see what happens next so I jumped into the fairly long sequel which isn’t done. Which ended not on a cliffhanger exactly. Certainly a dramatic moment before things kick into high gear again. Augh!
Now, guess what? More stories involving Sunset Shimmer!

- This Mirror Left Blank by Norm De Plume
So, turns out I am a horrible person. Because I kinda chuckled at the end of this story. Weird concept for a story. Suitable for those with a dark sense of humor.
Jeeze. That was dark. A lot darker than I was expected honestly. I would love to read a sequel about Princess Celestia’s reaction. Which would either be a good bit of catharsis or just be more nightmare fuel, as they say on the internet. Now to go read something fluffy and light.
That was an interesting take on things. I do really like the idea of a comfort prison for Alicorn. Might nab it for my own ponyverse. Plus I do enjoy any story that gives Princess Celestia some nuance. Even if it is just a hint that she might have an entire vault of insane Alicorns she hasn’t told anyone else about. As well as a nice subtle but reasonable version of chessmaster Celestia.
