Sleep schedule messed up, so missed a day. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I liked this one. Not only a interesting take on the mane six and the subject of death, but I really liked the implications of the last scene of it. Recommended for anyone that wants something just a little off the beaten path of ponyfic.
That was a very nice melancholy piece. Plus a good example of how to tell a story with letters, even though it isn’t one that is told entirely with them. Just a few here and there that are little glimpses into what happened. Pinkie Pie’s in particular hit me, but that’s not a surprise given my own fears and beliefs. A very thoughtful and interesting piece that has quite a bit to say about Princess Celestia even though she never actually shows up in it.

Huh. Well, not a bad story. Which is pretty much how I open most reviews where I don’t really have anything particular to say about the story quality. Mostly it needed a bit more space. The entire thing is Twilight being strongly against gay mares for no particular reason. Then it gets kind of explained in the last few lines in the most offhand way possible. So… Vaguely recommended I think? If it was twice as long and had some actual expiration of the topic and Twilight’s point of view it would have been really good. As-is, just kinda average? Huh. Since I downloaded the story it has apparently been deleted from FimFiction. Which I think is a shame. I might not have loved it, but it was certainly a story worth reading despite its flaws. Oh well.
