Ice Star


i eat kids

Celestia has many titles and duties and there are always things that remind her of this. They could be ponies or objects, perhaps even something more abstract and symbolic. Today is one such reminder of one of the lesser known roles, which she was never acknowledged for. She's even afraid to acknowledge it herself no matter how often the date repeats.

For some reason, I could stare at your profile pic for ten minutes straight and not get bored. Probably.

7323553 Why, thank you! :raritywink: I hope you enjoy my stories as well. Your profile pic is very adorable if I do say so myself.

I might. I saw it in my feed because you added it in your folder for "Let's Make You Known!" (which I'm an admin for but you probably know that) and I thought, "Hmm, Ice Star sounds like a cool name." Thus, I thought I might check out the story.
Also, thank you for the compliment. Rarity enjoys them very much. Don't you, Rarity?
Of course darling! Very much so!
See?

No problem.
Also, if I ever DO get around to reading this I can give a review for it, if you'd like. Dunno how long it'd take me, cause I have other things I need/want to do. On the bright side, this is only 1,129 words long, so it'd take me less than 2 minutes. It's just that, I have so many other things in my 'read it later' and every time I look at it I always mutter under my breath, "stop growing, dammit."

I love this idea and love to see more on it. With celly and Luna taling about it or even lune bring it up

I'm totally stealing your "Luna is a gifted storyteller" headcanon.

7326483 Out of everything in this story that's what you're taking away?:ajbemused:
Also, why?:applecry:

So. I finally got around to reading this. And, as promised, I said I would give a review. Here we go, I guess.
It starts off well enough. I'm pretty sure I caught two typos, one of which just seemed like odd wording to me. But not even a third of the way into the story and this happens.

Great storytellers are so hard to come by and there were quite a few a missed out on,

Yeah, that sentence was the typo. I'm not sure if you did it on purpose but I have no idea what you actually trying to say. Well, maybe that's taking it a bit far. I know what you're saying, but the wording is off and makes you take a look back it and think, 'wait, what?' in order for your mind to process what it just read. A lot like this, actually.

I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!

Now, that's taking it a little bit far, but you know the point I'm trying to make. It makes you look back at it and think, 'what?' It was also the funniest example I could put out there.

She could never loose Luna

Lose.*
Now, continuing on to the merits of the story. As the description says, it's about a special bond. And that's exactly what you're going to get, which is good. It's short, sweet, and touching. To those with a heart and can thus feel the emotions that you were trying to convey, which worked. With 27 likes, people obviously liked it.
My final score: 6.4 out of 10.
I dunno if that seems harsh or not, but I'm kind of hard to impress these days. Besides, that's like... my opinion, man.

Other than that, the story makes you want to read more about the Ice-Verse. You get slightly confused but in a... 'good' way I suppose, because you know this story is set within that universe. I know the description said that I don't require prior knowledge of events, and that if I read the stories I wouldn't get much out of trying to understand it. Now, however, YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) but this is a tactic to get people to read your other stories. And it works. I know because I've done it (albeit, not as grand of a scale as you have done) and it works. It gets people interested.

7386519 Thanks for the review and catching that typo! :twilightblush:

Yeah, no problem. I guess.

I reviewed this story as part of Read It Now #87.

My review can be found here.

As requested. :rainbowdetermined2:

Nice feels, yo.

Never considered the relationship these two had passed the realm of stereotypical sisterhood. One of your strength of the writer is digging deep into your themes seamlessly and not being pretentious or angsty about it. Your relatability and depth enrich your work, already supplement by flowery prose.

Well done.

I'm just oozing with angst, yo. Oozing.

Interesting introspective look into Celestia's thoughts after Luna's return.
