    The Last Roundup Question

    Hi guys. If you've all got a moment, I'd like to ask something.

    So, The Last Roundup has been going on for about five weeks now, going on six, and while it started out fairly promising, I've noticed something of a disheartening trend in that it doesn't seem to be getting much of a particular response from people. There haven't been all that many comments on the posts themselves as of late, and the last two suggestion threads got a total of zero suggestions. Which sort of makes me wonder if this is actually something people really enjoy and want to see continue, or if the overall sentiment's kind of lukewarm and there's something better I could be doing with my time re: bringing you guys stuff you'd want to see.

    But I'unno, that's just how the response lately has felt to me. I'm aware that there aren't a lot of ways to promote/spread this sort of thing beyond what I've been able to do for it off my own follow-base, so it's understandable that there's limited power for anyone who might feasibly be interested to actually find this. Which is sad, but that's just life, I guess. That said, if the people who're already aware of it aren't really that interested in it, I guess that'd be something of a final nail in the coffin. So I'd kinda want to see what you guys have to say on the matter.

    Thoughts?

OK, that was funny, and a nice bit on deconstruction what it means to live in a town subject to attacks by gigantic star-beasts, invasions by all-devouring multiplying parasprites, and Derpy Hooves.

#2 · 133w, 4d ago · · ·

To be honest, I cannot wait for the My Little Pony episode that deals with the election of a mayor. As with all political debates, it's bound to get nice and ugly really fast.

#3 · 133w, 4d ago · · ·

Brilliant story! Loved the Hitchhiker reference at the end. Great story from start to finish. [insert more glowing praise here.]

#4 · 133w, 4d ago · · ·

This was a work of brilliance...and it was way too short. :pinkiesad2:

#5 · 133w, 3d ago · · ·

This need to be longer!

#6 · 133w, 10h ago · · ·

That image alone makes me want to read this

After reading:  well this has been enjoyable, I don't think I've read a mayor mare story before.

Ponyville is preety.....accident proned huh? Tartarus, dams, derpy, you'd think celestial would've picked a better place lol

#7 · 133w, 9h ago · · ·

Even in Equestria politicians're always cutting library funding first. :twilightangry2:

#8 · 133w, 9h ago · · ·

Brilliantly funny story. "Do you know how awful ‘randomly subject to disaster’ looks to potential homeowners?" was just brilliant! :rainbowlaugh:

#9 · 133w, 9h ago · 1 · ·

I am forced to wonder if Equestria has building and fire codes, and how much of Ponyville is in violation. Much enjoyed.

#10 · 133w, 9h ago · 1 · ·

Seriously, for such a small town, far too much seems to happen to its population that would qualify as "Wrath of the Gods".

#11 · 133w, 9h ago · 1 · ·

It needs a real conclusion but was an entertaining read none the less

#12 · 133w, 8h ago · · ·

It probably won't sound good when Canterlot hears their inspector was grievously injured whilst inspecting. Or killed. Petunias are deadly, you know.:pinkiecrazy:

#13 · 133w, 6h ago · · ·

A good laugh. Thanks. Still, I think that you could get a lot of mileage out of this idea, so I'm kind of disappointed there isn't more. And I love the idea of the Mayor being the main character.

Uh... basically, can I swipe this basic idea of 'Ponyville under inspection, Mayor slowly going insane' from you please? javascript:smilie(':pinkiesad2:');

#14 · 133w, 6h ago · · ·

This is a really good one. The moment where the mayor was waggling her hooves at Twilight in particular got a pretty hearty chuckle out of me.

#15 · 133w, 3h ago · · ·

I love your writing style. You deliver jokes perfectly.

#17 · 132w, 6d ago · · ·

Funny, I liked the contrast between what the mayor was saying and what she was thinking. :rainbowlaugh:

#18 · 132w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

>>418055  Ponyville is Equestria's "South Park".  :trollestia:

#19 · 132w, 4d ago · · ·

Very cute.

#20 · 132w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

>>418537

Could have been worse.  Could have been a whale. :derpytongue2:

#21 · 131w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

"Are-eye" Are...Eye...R....I....  R.I.

:pinkiegasp:

You clever little son of a gun, you

#22 · 130w, 2d ago · · ·

Well, it was quite funny, but I'm sure I didn't catch all the references there. Might be because I'm a foreigner. :pinkiesmile:

Anyway - Mayor Mare sure has it hard. For a backwater town like Ponyville a lot of strange crap happens all the time there. :rainbowlaugh:

#23 · 128w, 3d ago · · ·

That was a laugh :pinkiehappy:

(And the moral of the story is, live somewhere else. ANYWHERE ELSE.)

#24 · 59w, 22h ago · · ·

Well.  That's one way to ace an inspection...
