The writing's a little rough around the edges, but it's not bad. The main problem you're going to have is that you broke rule #1 -"Never portray Flash Sentry in a positive light."

There is no rule about that. He's a good guy.

That's what fan-fictions are for. It's to give new personality and stories to the characters. You just have to give him a chance every once in a while.

Flash Sentry already has a personality and a leather jacket. The leather jacket is his whole personality

Okay, you may be right, so are some people that Ben Mare is a Gary Sue but I'm doing my best to make him into a good OC. I'm not giving up the fight just yet.

You and the critics win. I admit I got some problems that need to work out when it comes to my fan-fictions and stories but I'm still doing my best.

The writing is not half bad, but you have trouble with tenses. It can be very jarring reading a story in present tense, only for the next paragraph (or even the next sentence) suddenly become past tense, or vice versa. It may not seem like much, but it can be distracting to the reader and pull them out of the story. Pick a tense and stick with it.

You also repeat yourself, especially what the characters just said:

"Interesting; so what makes you think of him as a friend?" Celestia ask Ben, wanting to know what makes this Flash Sentry a new friend to her son.

Perhaps a gesture or action would be preferable than... well, repeating what Celestia just said, you know?

As for the story, it's the beginning and there is not much to talk about except for Flash Sentry and Ben Mare. They're both, if I may be blunt, really bland. Flash Sentry is annoying and Ben Mare just seems like a male Fluttershy... but not much else. I really hope there is some development in store for them.

I'll keep a close eye on this one. Later, bro.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing; every character you put into your stories should be developed, having their own strengths and flaws, hopes and dreams. However, don't expect it to become popular even if it's good.

It's like if the Ku Klux Klan swore off racism and started feeding starving children and adopting orphaned puppies. Yes, they stopped being bad, but no one would ever give them a chance either way.

"Self-fufilment"? I don't even like Twilight that way.

I'm probably going to sound like a broken record here, but what the heck, I'll say it again. Always keep your tenses consistent, don't give readers a reason to back out of your story. In my opinion you should look through your next chapter (and the previous chapters) and stay in one tense the whole way through. Past or present, JusSonic, one or the other. You can't keep jumping back and forth expecting something good to come from it.

4336027 Perhaps wish fulfillment with a dash of author avatar?

I am a black man living in the South. I support this message. I also like that Flash Sentry was compared with the KKK. Celestia bless you.

Ben? BEN DROWNED.
"You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?"

4352559 HE DID NOT. Stop making fun of him. :twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2:

Newbiecake, much? May be creepypasta from before you were born. :trollestia:

4353042 That's it. I'm blocking you for your total rudeness.

4353064

Hoho, sensitive much? A friendly ribbing after you stuck your nose in somewhere it didn't belong and you have the nerve to act offended? How terribly gauche. Well, nothing lost on my end. Don't know or care about you aside from the mild amusement you provided me with in regards to your over-the-top antics and immaturity.

4353064 That's really mature of you. Do your parents know you're on the internet?

4365882 I am an adult and I can use the net whenever I want to, thank you very much. :ajbemused:

4353076 You're expecting a bit much from this "author" in my opinion.

4365888 Judging from your response to that post(s), I'd say you were a child using the internet while your parents were away. Go ahead and block me. I know you're gonna do it.

4365898 You are a total liar. My parents DO let me use the net. You have no right making fun of me as is. I do not tolerate people insulting JusSonic's work at all, and I especially do not tolerate people treating me like a little kid, which I am not anymore. In fact, that makes me wonder one thing. Are you a critic or a cyberbully? :ajbemused:

Judging your posts that make fun of me, I think you're definitely a cyberbully, posing as a critic and doing a very bad job at it. :trollestia:

4365907 So you're not a little kid. Or so you say. Judging from the maturity and critical thinking you've shown in your posts, if we may mockingly call it such, well you're no adult. At least one with any standards in English composition or the basics of storytelling.

4365907 Make no mistake, I am not trolling you or "flaming". I merely call things as I see them, delicate feelings and soft constitutions ignored.

4365907 Yeah, I wouldn't know how to respond if I were you either.
