Well, typing this up on my phone. Bluetooth keyboard and phone really. Because my computer decided life was too hard and cut out on me. Pretty sure it’s the video card. The computer sounds like it is booting up fine (the right beeps and whirring noises in the case) but the monitor shows nothing. Same with a different monitor. Guess I should be glad it didn’t happen two days ago when I was working on catching up with the BMRL. So, time to figure out how to get a functional computer then. So, armature (amateur?) statistics from the BMRL will be delayed. Probably good that I am forced to take a few days break from Fallout 4, I guess.
For now, pony fanfic reviews from stuff I read a while back. Without fancy links to the stories because that is a pain to do on the phone.
Starlight Glimmer is the Best at Friends by Majin Syeekoh
Amusing in a light and fluffy way. Certainly worth a read if you liked the story description. Very much a what you read is what you get.
The Great Snowball War by Ponibius
Not bad. I liked the characters involved, but I think the actual narrative gets a bit carried away sometimes. I really want to read more about the main character though, she’s hilarious and interesting.
Is It Real? by Majin Syeekoh
Not bad. Good enough story, but the basic premise of Princess Celestia’s reply bothered me a little. The difference between history and myth and all that. I would put the events of Hearth’s Warming Eve as history, but apparently Princess Celestia prefers to treat it as myth. Stories like this make me feel like I agree with the people who see Princess Celestia as incompetent.
(Edit: The author rightfully points out that I was a little harsh on the story. Celestia does not say it is a myth, she purposefully leaves it neither confirmed nor denied because the point is that the spirit of the holiday should not dependent on the facts of the original legend. Turns out myth is one of those things I’ve got a skewed definition of in my personal vocabulary and need to be a little more precise in it’s use in the future.).
