    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?

    Late Night Obs

    This happened, apparently. I still don't know how or why, but it did. PGish content, I guess. The people who said all these things here may not be real people, but fairy constructs made of dust and such stuff dreams are made on.

    I blame everything on time travel, because I am currently tired and incoherent, and must therefore have gone back a couple hours in time to make my past self weird and loopy too.

    It makes perfect sense, because of course it does.

    G'night.

Dear Princess Celestia,

I'm sorry I haven't written in a while. Things seem to be falling through the cracks lately. Spike thinks I should go see the doctor, but...

Obs, I just want to say this is absolutely brilliant, probably the best thing you've written.

Awesome stuff as always, Obs. I love it.

>>1727057 Indeed... Very... Beautiful...

*Sniff*

I'm not crying... :fluttercry:

#15 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

That is haunting.

In time we have to give it all back...

I will talk on your writing ability, because if I talk on the story itself I will shudder and lay solemnly for a while before i sleep...

On your writing ability : It is very good.

#16 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

:fluttercry: :applecry:

It's so sad, but sweet and cute and, and, feels!.

It's very good. And well written too, I couldn't see any errors aside the ones on purpose later on and the pacing and flow were good.

#17 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

Ouch, my heart.

#18 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

This was so ...sad in a way, seeing Twlight slipping away further and further.

Damn this story really went straight to the hearth, you've done an excellent job on this story my respects.  Its just so freaking beautiful yet so sad.

#20 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

Hmm.. was warned not to read this by the description, but did it anyway. Have a glass of tears for you.

#21 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

Oh, man...:fluttercry: My heart, it can't take these feels. Great job. Just, great.

#23 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

Welp. The feels are being felt.

#24 · 98w, 6h ago · · ·

>>1727068  When are you updating Solitary?

#25 · 98w, 6h ago · 1 · ·

I'm glad I read this.

#26 · 98w, 5h ago · · ·

Beautiful One shot...

#28 · 98w, 5h ago · · ·

As somebody whose own grandmother suffers from much the same problem... yeah.

Gonna have to figure out some way to stop looking like I was crying before the fam' notices.  ^^()  Damned good, in that odd way this sort of story is.

#29 · 98w, 5h ago · · ·

Oh wow. :pinkiesad2:

#30 · 98w, 5h ago · · ·

Holy crap, that was really powerful.  Brilliantly organized and delicately crafted.  You handled the difference between Spike and Twilight's writing styles very well, and the slow decline of quality in Twilight's letters was a really nice touch.  Great foreshadowing at the beginning, and a truly beautiful ending.  "You know, she forgets my name sometimes, but she always remembers yours."

Thank you.

#31 · 98w, 5h ago · 2 · ·

I'm kinda crying right now.....

Nope...Now its full on crying.

Fuck you Obselescence you made me feel.

Yet I also think I should thank you.

So...Thanks.

#32 · 98w, 5h ago · · ·

Awww poor Twi.

#33 · 98w, 5h ago · · ·

Many feels were felt while reading

#34 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

Very touching, very moving.  Thanks for writing this.  :twilightsmile:

#35 · 98w, 4h ago · 3 · ·

I heard you guys had a pretty serious mood in the comment section going on right now. It would be horrible if someone were to come along and...

... ruin it.

#36 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

Extremely well written... this hit me right in the feels. My Grandfather is going through similar issues. At times he is fairly lucid, but others...

Thank you for writing this, even if I am struggling not to cry...

#37 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

#38 · 98w, 4h ago · 1 · ·

But thank celestia the magic of friendship can make the pain go away. :pinkiesad2:

#39 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

This almost had me crying. It was very well-written, and I am a fan of how you made the whole story a series of letters to the Princess. Very well-done. :twilightsmile:

#40 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

This is a fanfiction young writers can aspire to. Shows how you can break rules and still have a brilliantly crafted piece and it's an emotional gut-punch. I am in awe as much as I am in tears.

Cheers

#41 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

Damn... that hit me right in my manly, manly feels.

#43 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

#48 · 98w, 4h ago · · ·

:raritycry::pinkiesad2::fluttercry::applecry: Dang it, you've got me feeling all sappy!
