Pony Stories 780

06 Aug

I’ve changed my mind. My biggest complaint about Green was that it involved the running of Equestria (albit in a minor way) and didn’t have even a single mention of Dotted Line. Given the story and characters it should have only been a passing mention, but still! We should require the presence of Dotted Line by law in every pony story that involves the Equestrian government.

Waltz at Midnight by Deathscar

This is another slice of life shipping story that would have worked better as a scene from a larger story. It’s decent to good writing, but felt incomplete and without context. Did like the writing style though. Very much a from Twilight’s perspective piece.

Death and Life Together by Foals Errand

The idea that ascension involved destroying Twilight Sparkle’s original body isn’t a brand new one. Not as common as one would think now that I ponder it. Still, seen one or two other stories that involved the concept in one way or another. This story doesn’t involve looking at it with any particular depth. Twilight Sparkle gets shocked that her unicorn body was destroyed and Princess Celestia shows up to explain and comfort her. With an explanation that… honestly confuses and baffles me. I’m not entirely sure why the author decided to use that particular reason when there are several perfectly good choices to pick from about why Twilight Sparkle’s unicorn body gets blasted to smithereens.

Matters of Vice by Bookish Delight

This was another story that tosses an interesting bit out in passing and then never gives details on it. I just now noticed this story is a sequel and I’m hoping the earlier story gives more detail on the background event. Still, for a Equestria Girls Luna/Celestia sisters story I enjoyed it.

Matters of Principle by Bookish Delight

Augh! Not only did it have less information about the background event, but it added more hints at things that I want to know more about. Guess it’s time to hunt through the author’s stories to see if any of them have the worldbuilding and plot details I hunger for.

    Green had it’s own officious civil servant.

      True! He was pretty cool too. I’m just of the opinion that we need more pony civil servants in stories as a general rule.
