A group dedicating to producing a viable alternative of Fimfiction's Famous Featured Box. Which, as has been stated by eighty gazillion people across the span of human history, tends to favor popular stories a whole lot more than good stories.
So, what we do here is simple: We Feature Stories. Every Sunday, there’ll be a new update, which you’ll be able to find on the main group page (or, if you prefer to get notifications, you can follow Obselescence and get updates through the feed via Sunday blogs). Our crackpot team of story people will sift through the stories posted in the prior week and dig up a handful of stuff that’s probably worth your time. There’s no guarantee that you’ll enjoy it, but at the least it’s a bit of signal in the noise.
The time for Twilight to succeed Celestia as Bearer of the Sun has come. But as the abdication ceremony in which Celestia will relinquish her power approaches, Twilight begins to desperately search for a way to stop the ceremony and save her friend.
Morcraw ses: It's a deliciously grim and beautiful dark story. Really nice imagery and great worldbuilding tidbits.
In the aftermath of their defeat, Aria Blaze and her siren companions struggle to figure out what to do with their lives.
Morcraw ses: In a strange twist of fate, it's a story that's focused on Aria after RR.
Aria tries to move on after their failure at CHS. Adagio is a butt. There's also some really cool world-building thrown in. The start of the story has been pretty promising so far.
Who knows who you'll end up sitting next to on your next train ride?
Morcraw ses: A quick-n-cute tale that centers around OC-ponies. Normally that would be icky and untenable, but Eakin writes well and manages to make it all work pretty darn marvelously. Arguably the biggest complaint is that there isn't more of it.
Can former villains learn from one another without driving each other and everyone else insane? Discord seems to think so. Sunset Shimmer, however, has her doubts. And the Sirens aren't helping matters, either.
Morcraw ses: You can pretty much figure out from the description that this tale involves Discord and Sunset Shimmer hanging out. Also Sirens. There's a lot going on in this story, and indeed it's still ongoing, but it all looks to be pretty excellent.
Celestia raises the Sun for the first time.
Morcraw ses: A nice little bit of Celestia and Luna being Celestia and Luna. It's not going to blow your mind, but it's Celestia and Luna, and the world always needs more of that. Also check out the companion-sequel, Dusk.
Applejack tells you her only secret. It is about a hole. The hole in her face. The breathing, living hole in her face. (Inspired by the cover image and a recurring dream)
A look inside Adagio’s emotional state and her journey forward roughly six months after Rainbow Rocks.
Also the editor is terrible and smelly.
