Given one of the more recent episodes I decided to read the unappreciated in it’s own time ponyfic titled Luna Just Learned About The Play “A Hearth’s Warming Carol” by Singularity Dream. Okay, okay, not unappreciated. Several people liked it and more importantly I had fun writing it. I was just as amused this time through as well, so nothing to be ashamed about even if the technical quality wasn’t even up to my best. I still think the whole thing is hilarious.

I wanted more. Not of the main subject of the story, that was handled quite well. I wanted more of Magnolia and Spike slice of life stuff. Still, a enjoyable story as is.
Princess Celestia’s stream of consciousness thoughts as she sits at the dinner table waiting for Twilight. A nicely done character study of her.
Pretty good treatment of the premise. I enjoyed it and I thought the author handled it with just the right touch.
So very bland. Not terrible by any measure, just got bored while reading it. Another tell/show spectrum example. A bit too much telling, I felt there was just too much distance between me and the story. Not to mention it seemed a bit generic. It would have been fairly easy to swap out either character. Not trial, the author didn’t ignore the characterization entirely, but did not do a great job capitalizing on them either.
Hey, a Them story that doesn’t end on a utterly depressing and hopeless note. Still dark as heck, but not as bad as the others. Not quite as good either. Just didn’t get the same feel of the characters this time. Still not a bad one though.
