Loved Shelter, loved this


Why so many downvotes?

7665849 Every time I post a new story, there are 4-5 users who automatically downvote it without reading. I'm used to it.

Fantastic. :twilightsmile:

7665872 How fast do they dislike it? That's an odd thing to me...

7665885 It had four downvotes within five minutes of being posted.

There is no words to describe this.

Buck, the feels are strong with this one.

We're with you in spirit man. Trust me, I understand what you're feeling. We're here for you if you need us, if only to talk.

A very engrossing read, haunting on multiple levels. I hope you got what you wanted out of writing it.

I don't have words to describe this story awesomeness.

Holy :yay: :yay::yay::yay: This is the best story I have ever read on Fimfiction or Fanfiction.net. Just.... wow. This is going to be featured

Where can I find the short film in question?

Nice. Kinda curious about the backstory, but then again it would go against the objective of it.
I would like to see their reunion, though :fluttercry:

7667150 I linked it in today's OOCSST blog, or you can just go to Youtube and search "shelter". It's also on Crunchyroll.

So. Damn. Beautiful.

A very beautiful and haunting read, but I have this strange feeling I've seen this somewhere before...

Yep. No similarities at all...

In all seriousness though, I loved how you wrote this and, while clearly drawing inspiration from Sheltered, you worked through the source material and integrated it rather seamlessly with MLP.

I would love to see the reunion, even if it's short, but I can understand why you might want to end it here.

That'd be why the story description says "Inspired by Shelter". Sometimes it pays to read these things. :raritywink:

Anyway, thanks for reading!

7669049 Eh, good point. Still, I think you did a pretty damn good job on this.

I saw Shelter. Its gorgeous and all that but I dont really see what all the hype is about.
That said, this story that you wrote. It does what Shelter tried for but does it and does it a hundred times better.

7665872 Ni:flutterrage::flutterrage:a what, that's just messed up in twenty different ways.

7669808 *shrug* It is what it is. It's annoying, but ultimately not worth losing sleep over.

Interesting. Very interesting. I may be interpreting this wrong, but this feels like some kind of matrix that Celestia made for her so she could learn her lessons of friendship, as well as find inner peace via the tablet to control and experience the world around her.

7672519 A matrix that can not support any A.I. leaving Sunset alone until a pony joins her or she leaves.

Just saw Shelter. :fluttercry: This story is just as good as Shelter maybe better since it didn't destroy the meaning of the original story, just gave it a different character.

7665872 Don't these people have anything better to do with their lives than following an author they don't even like only to downvote anything he publishes? It just seems to petty.

7685201 ...this is the Internet.

The "no editing" part is apparent.

In all honesty I think "inspired by" isn't quite accurate. It feels more like the same story just with another main character.
Anyway, the writing itself was good, it flowed nicely and made for a nice quick read. :twilightsmile:

Very good considering it wasn't edited. I wonder who attacked Equestria and why Celestia felt the need to protect Sunset from the fighting but no one else. Maybe she hadn't met Twilight yet but still, good story, hope Sunset can get back to Equestria soon.

I think my heart just shattered.


Well given Sunset refers to a biped form a few times and it's not entirely clear if she ever went to the Equestria Girls world I think it was probably humans (or the Equestria Girls equivalent).

I love the video and really enjoyed this

Well that was sad. But meaningful too. Especially from the source material this is based off from.
