    Help Wanted

    So the idea behind posting this mess was originally to cleanse my palette: clear out all the old unfinished junk, and set out to new, greener pastures with new, better ideas for stories that I could write, now that I have the time and inclination to do so.

    Further Context

    Things as I spoke about them in my last blog largely went as planned. I finished up my studies, did pretty damn well in a few things, and I'm all set to start work at the beginning of February. Got my shoes and shirts, slowly learning what an iron is for, etcetera and so on.

    Context

    A great value of fanfiction is in the context that automatically surrounds any work you create. Biblical Monsters for example, would have difficulty being such a focused, tragic tale of miscommunication without the MLP context. In some sense, this whole site is one big collaborative writing project.

    Well this is interesting.

    Hey everybody, how's it going? I've been super busy with tonnes of work all year – went up a year in uni, took on an extra subject, got a part-time job, started some personal projects – and thus very scarce around these parts. It's work I'm glad to be doing, and I'm learning a lot and generally having a good time, but I just haven't had a lot of time for pony stuff, and that probably won't change

    That feel when 10+ blog post notifications

    Twilight's new hairstyle will be the shark-jumping moment for this show, I'm certain of it. Time to start writing Littlest Pet Shop fics.

    Also... I like this theory.

So how about dat Luna episode? I thought it was pretty great, and my opinion of it even improved on my second viewing. Luna's characterisation made sense, had depth, and didn't screw over my fanfic (because it only has two scenes with Luna so far, and both of them feature her talking to Celestia in private, so S1E2!Luna applies).

And to be honest, I don't think it necessarily messed up as many other fanfics as we were expecting it to. With a little clever arguing and roundabout logic, you can probably still make most of the best Luna fics work. But I digress. In honour of Lunar Eclipsed, let's have a look at my favourite Luna fics:


Half the Day is Night by Augiedog
Luna as an unpopular royal (yay) who is stuck in her ancient ways (yay) and needs the help of the mane 6 (yay) and Celly to get ponies to like her. It's written as if it could be a series of actual episodes, if FIM were to do that sorta thing. My favourite part of this fic is the way Luna gradually regains her power. Definitely still worth a read.


Luna's Goodwill Tour by WTFHIW
This is an interesting case - FIM reimagined with a more mature atmosphere that is actually "a more mature atmosphere", rather than a grimdark one. The Luna here is probably a little more "with-it" than canon Luna, but it's still a damn fine fic. It's incomplete though, and I don't see it being finished at all ever, especially not after this last episode.


Paradise by Slywit
Paradise still works because it's happening a while before Celly and Woona even become princesses, and because translation convention applies if you think they should be speaking old English and because Paradise is amazing.


Progress by Andrew J Talon
To be perfectly honest, I've only ever read Luna vs the Microwave, and I guess that kinda works because it's mostly about how Luna's unaccustomed to the modern world. People have been saying that it got Luna right though, so I guess that's nice and maybe I'll read the whole thing eventually.


Somepony Loves You Princess Luna! by some /co/lt
Okay, so this Luna's a little too demure for canon, but this story's still d'awww.

I miss the following yourself inception bit, went great with that Fluttershy hyperventilating from anxiety of being watched by all those eyes from Hurricane Fluttershy.

Anyways, nice top favs here. Not sure how many use Goodwill's formating in Gdocs but got curious and wanted to line up two stories together to see if I could spot whether that author really did partake in the recent Trixie flash fiction on EQD. Likely not, but it'd be a joy to know if he was still out there enjoying and dishing out more pony more stories.

God this must be incredibly old blog post if you were still able to follow yourself xD
