Pony Stories 736

24 Mar

I’ll be at the Boston Flower Show more or less all day today. Gotta get up nice and early for it too. Woo. I guess? Well, hopefully I’ll get some reading and/or writing done while the rest of the house is looking at all the cool plant and garden stuff.

  • The Road Goes on Forever by AugieDog
  • Sunset Shimmer Makes a Sandwich by Admiral Biscuit

The Road Goes on Forever by AugieDog

I liked this one. It is a good example of how telling instead of showing can work. The whole thing is just Twilight Sparkle more or less expositioning her day as it happens and the author pulls it off quite nicely in my opinion. Of course, that is less of a surprise when you realize the author is AugieDog who has more experience and skill than any two other ponyfic authors glued together. (Mostly because gluing authors together rarely improves their skills)

Sunset Shimmer Makes a Sandwich by Admiral Biscuit

It’s the second story I’ve read where a my little pony character makes a sandwich and accidentally summons some kind of demonic force. This one is the more reasonable one and is very short and simple. More or less a brief joke in long form. Amusing, but easily skimmed through and moved on from.
