Plug Tuesday by Georg · 1:14am
Tuesday, and time for Georg to plug some of his favorite stories and point to some recent ones which need a little loving.
First, the new My Fluttering Heart by Titanium Dragon, in which a young Flurry Heart wonders why her none of her siblings are alicorns too. Falls close enough to my story Shining Armor and Son that I thought you guys (twisted humors and all) would enjoy it too.
Then two established romances, Lovey Dovey and the business Pony and Lovey Dovey and the Uncertain Stallion (uncomplete), both of which are delightful forays into the silly and heart-filled world of Equestria’s greatest matchmaker and the most difficult match she is tasked to find.
Then an underappreciated short story brought to my attention by Seattles Angels, One Night In A Storm where a pony and a gryphon are trapped in a cave during a fierce storm and leave changed in a way neither expected.
And an oldie but a goodie that I’ve always appreciated, Erase and Rewind about an odd orphan who can not find a family and the odder pony who is determined to adopt her, regardless of the risk.
"They didn't even tell me your name," he said. "That's why I'm here. To talk with you. I wanted to hear it from you."
She glanced at the door, then back at him. "If you adopt me, you'll die."
"Why? Are you a serial killer or something?"
"No. Probably. But I've been in and out of this place eight times so far." She leaned closer and whispered. "They always die, and it's never my fault.”
He frowned at her. "Who's fault is it, then?"
She shrugged. "Nopony's fault. It just happens."
