Just finished the Hearth’s Warming Tale episode. Decent enough. I’ve never been a huge fan of that particular story, so it wasn’t exactly going to hit any buttons in my head. I thought most of the songs were, well, functional. Though I did like Luna’s quite a bit. I think my pony version of a pony Christmas Carol was much more creative myself. Then again, it would have to be a Princess Celestia episode and I’m pretty sure the show having a Princess Celestia episode is one of the signs of the end times. Best news? Once I grab a screenshot from the episode I’ll have a actual related image to put up as my fanfics cover image. Woohoo~
In review news, today begins a semi-long period of Rarity/Twilight Sparkle shipping stories. I went on kind of a bender for a while.

- The Little Things by Princess Glitzy
- The Spark by Princess Glitzy
Fluffy Rarity and Twilight Sparkle shipping story. Sweet, but very fluffy. Sort of a case of, if you are in the mood for this, it will give you a hit of what you want. This author does really sweet Rarity and Twilight romance. I really enjoy her version of Rarity.
Yep. More fluffy Rarity and Twilight shipping. The writing is not quite as polished as some stories, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. Most likely because I’m on a bit if a Rarity/Twilight kick right now.
Rarity and Twilight shipfics continue. This message was kinda bland. I’d call it fluffy, except it didn’t leave me with that warm fluffy feeling when I was done reading, so I guess bland will have to do. The writing isn’t the best. The worst offender was this line:
> Knowing that her ponies were living, learning and growing gave her immeasurable proudness.
Proudness? Pretty sure Pride would have worked better there. I did like the Princess Celestia at the beginning. The mental picture if her tapping a good and humming with a song stuck in her head while she waits for a friendship report is a fun one.
