Ponies in large airplanes! No, wait, ponies work better in proper fantasy airships. Today’s intro will be short and merely be me showing off my Dungeons & Dragons campaign site. I was using the site Obsidian Portal before, but it was just too annoying so I decided to just use another wordpress blog because it makes actually pretty good info site and/or wiki. Check out ExiledFuture.com to see what I’ve got in place so far if you like random Dungeons & Dragons worldbuilding that is all text with no pictures.
Of course, more review-ish things below the break.
- Dense as Diamonds by River Road
- This is a Story You Will Never Read by Cynewulf
I actually read this one just last night, so it’s fresh in my memory. Not that there was a whole lot that impressed me. This is another functional shipping story. It had some good bits and I liked the basic premise. It just seemed a bit rushed. This was a long-form summary of a courtship and romance, not the romance story itself. Still, recommended if you like the pair, but you can skip it if you don’t. I did enjoy the idea that Rarity was the oblivious one between the two.
This is a hard one to comment on because it’s not really a story. It’s is just Twilight Sparkle’s internal monologue as she sits in a coffee shop and people-watches and jots down a little story base on somepony she sees. It’s not bad, and works a bit like a character study, but there isn’t much there to really sink your teeth into. I’d file this under ‘worth a read, you might really like it, but don’t go in with high expectations’.
