Fanfiction Reading Update #164 · 10:12am
You can tell just how far backed up my image/gifs are because I favorited this back when it first appeared in the pre-S4 hype.
I must say, I haven't been in much of a fanfic mood these last few weeks thanks to the holidays, video games, and Youtube. It wasn't until just yesterday that I actually started back into the fanfics. With the next semester of college starting on Monday, I have a lot of lost time to make up for. I also switched back to the normal Tweyelight avatar--even though it seems most people around here still have their Christmas lights on.
Corruption of the Sun updates with Celestia continuing her slide down the Tyrantlestia chute and some somewhat awkwardly written Twilestia thrown in.
D=S-M updates with the reveal as to who “Celestia” is—and it's somewhat baffling given the character's use of a horn—along with the small possibility of some evil!Luna (I'm not buying it for a second).
Morbid Curiosity updates with Twilight showing some emotion to break up that sociopathy that's defined her so far.
The [Dark] tag comes roaring back with a vengeance as Withdrawal seeks to pull the upset and beat Solitary Locust in the game of “How much can Twilight suffer.” Pretty good plot twist to boot.
I burn through several chapters of Her Destiny as my worries over its shonen-style (complete with calling attacks) and possible Tyrantlestia continue to mount.
After the Fall is tracked for being one of the very few truly post-apocalyptic stories—with all the dread and hopelessness that goes along with it. Probability of [Grimdark] ending: 100%--you can't get much more grimdark than an extinction-level event. At this point, everyone dying would be a happy ending.
And that's all I read for the daymonth.
