It takes all kinds to make a world. Let she who denies this fall into the latrine.

I really enjoyed this story. It has genuine struggle and feelings in trying to pick up their lives after being brainwashed (you show it going way beyond hypnosis), and relying on this newfangled friendship thing to see them through.

I was really inspired. I wish it was longer and yet at the same time I feel it's already the perfect length. Wanting more yet feeling fulfilled. That's the mark of a good one-shot.

Yay! :yay: I always struggle with one-shots; I always think they need to be longer or have more detail in them somewhere. Good to know I managed to take this one in the right direction. :pinkiehappy:

This was quite enjoyable. I like the kind of stories that go beyond what happened in the episode it's based off of. Considering that it had to have been quite a long time Starlight was running that village, there definitely had to be some PTSD that would come with it.

That, and I just LOVE the four main village ponies from that episode. It's really hard to choose a favorite from the four. They need their own tags.

Bravo! This has been added to my faves.:heart::pinkiehappy:

Nice story. I had inferred from the episode that Double Diamond was supposed to be Starlight's 2nd in command and enforcer, and in the end he leads the revolt against her.

My goodness! This was a fantastic read. I love what you did with the characters in this. The story just fits together very well.

Just an aside, I caught two typos related to it's vs. its.
her philosophy wormed it’s way into his mind so smoothly.
...in it's place...

Both it's should be its. :3

Thank you very much! And the two errors have been fixed. :twilightsmile:

Wow. Double Diamond's voice almost made me cringe every time he spoke in the episode, but you let me forget that easily probably less than a quarter of the way through. Your characterization is absolutely stellar, the interactions felt incredibly genuine, and I think it's safe to say we were all waiting for this plotline to be explored and that it was done so well so soon is a welcome surprise. Finally, your grammar is practically flawless, I didn't see a single error while I read.

I want to thank you, and anyone else who may have been involved, for giving us this remarkable (pun neither intended nor regretted) work of fiction. Faved with a vengeance.

You know, the irony is Our Town ITSELF was something Unique as the place of Equalization, now that uniqueness ITSELF is gone.

I loved this!!!

Bravo, sir. :moustache:

I demand a sequel.

For a sad story this really just slid through.

The pacing was well mastered around his own struggle. And it melded well.


Nice story about the victims of Starlight's insane philosophy.

Very nice and uplifting. Double Diamond's characterization was handled well.
