Fic reviews, November 21st! · 8:40pm Nov 21st, 2021

This is a short emergency review blog to help get the word out about a couple people on this site who need help!

B_25 is in a situation
Nailah has suffered a loss

Hopefully I'm not too late getting the word out, I just know that if I don't do some fic reviews, not as many people will see this. :C

Premature Cross Pollination by Super Trampoline
Genre: Interspecies Sexual Comedy
Can a stallion and a woman really… do it?
This came with a note that Super Trampoline wanted notes on how badly his dialogue sucks. Well, surprise, surprise, it don't! This is an all-dialogue story, and he did a great job. :) That said, the subject matter is not to my taste, but at least it's light-hearted and, again, well written. That's about all you need.
Recommended Only If You Like Interspecies Relationships

Rarity Freaking Dies: A Horror Story by Protopony350
Mature: Gore, Violence, Death
Genre: Dark Crackfic Comedy
Yeah, so Rarity died again and, as always, Sweetie Belle has to deal with it.
This was great. :) Honestly more readable on a technical level than most trollfics, but fast-paced, always quirky and funny, and with an amazing reason not to have Zecora speak in rhyme. I give it a 6 outta 10!

Wait. He's HOW Old?! by Flutterpriest
Genre: EQG Comedy
Twilight comes to Sunset for dating advice.
We've gotten some side commentary since Legend of Everfree that states this idea was not true, but I never liked Timber Spruce anyway and always felt like he was way older than someone who should be hitting on a high school, so fuck him. >:V I'll admit, this story kind of doesn't go anywhere beyond just laying that idea out, but at least it has some good advice on what not to do when it comes to dating as a teenager!
Recommended for Timber Spruce Haters!

A Pinkie Pi Story by Wissle
Genre: Slice of Life
As she bakes, Pinkie Pie thinks of things.
All right, so this was written for Pi Day, and as the description states, each sentence has a number of words corresponding to the next digit of pi. This is a tremendous undertaking, and you can see from the results that it's not exactly easy to do. With that in mind, if you think of this as poetry? The bizarre, choppy sentence work actually makes sense. (Or, y'know, just remember that it's Pinkie's internal monologue.) And I mean, otherwise it's an abject lesson as to why writing exercises are just that, but I still think it's cool the author pulled it off. :)

Rocketmare by Rust
Genre: Sad Sci-Fi
I think it's gonna be a long, long time…
Man, Rust was so good. This was a speedwriting fic! And he did this! Ugh. Dammit. I love what people do. Anyway, this is great. You get the awe and wonder of a pony going up into space for the first time, and I mean, just the beauty and the sense of importance at breaking through a figurative (and literal) horizon this way, that comes off the page. And then there's a nice little heartwarming scene… and then you find out what's really happening and, oh damn, that hit me right in the feels. Not a good one for light reading, but if you need some emotional catharsis, this'll do it, baby.
Highly Recommended

you are a saint Pp :) <3

Yeah, Rust... So many stories that started so well but never finished.

Glad you liked it, though I'm disappointed you didn't comment on the (for once not purposely) horrific cover art I did!

Out at sea, rockin' steam dreams and pilot valves... Deuces.

Him and The Descendent, I'll always hold out hope. And I guess it's an appropriate story to go out on, given the lyrics that inspired it.

That's why I stopped publishing stories until they're finished if they aren't compilation-style stuff. my early stories are a graveyard of "on-hiatus"

:rainbowlaugh: That's why I stopped reading stories until they're finished!

speaking of reading, have you read much stuff by MagnetBolt? I feel like you would really appreciate their stories given you tend to write action with bits of comedy.

I will check them out!

Highly recommend Dark art of the Dress, a Derp and Stormy Night, Legend of the Galactic Horses, the one about luster dawn with amazing OCs including a sphynx and an enby kelpie and some great Chryssi ones as well I'm too lazy to link them but you'll find them

Is everone just focusing on the stories!?!?!:flutterrage:
