The trip through the past of my ponyfic reading continues. Having to glance at each one to format the new covers with the fancy cover maker has me remembering each one. Which leads me to a spoiler: Paul Asaran, I still haven’t forgiven you for Frequency.
But enough about trivial vendettas against good authors. Time for reviews. Once again I’ve been reading faster than I’ve been putting these out. So at this point I’m nearly a week behind on the read/post cycle.
- Cadance’s Lovely Misadventure by Chengar Qordath
- Her hardest duty. by Alchemystudent
- In Which Twilight Sparkle Attempts to Eat a Sandwich by Maphysto
Pretty good story. Princess Cadance fumbling through her first Hearts and Hooves day as Princess of Love. Fairly typical stuff. Her meal with Celestia was nicely done. Really should have been lunch instead of early dinner, though. The story also feels like it needed one or two more chapters. It just kind of ends with a token resolution.
Ow. I didn’t even get to the halfway point. Writing was just too rough. Not even sure how to describe it. Probably a very heavy case of telling instead of showing. None of the sentences flowed together, repetition up the butt, and just general poor word choices.
Fun bit of storytelling. Specifically each of the mane six besides Twilight telling a local legend about why the sandwiches if a local cafe are cursed. Even if the final result doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. I mean the final result involving the sandwich. The end if the story was pretty cool.
