Technically, not terrible - Admiral Biscuit

There are times in a pony's life where she has to admit that as bad as things are, they're technically not terrible.

Technically, not terrible
Chapter 5: Novelember II

“So?” Applejack tried to hide her eager expression. “What do you think?”

“Well.” Twilight set the manuscript down and rubbed the bridge of her nose. “You promised your next Novelember fic would have airplanes.”

“And boy howdy, does it.”

“Yes.” Twilight nodded. “It does.”

“I see a bit of a frown.”

“Well, it’s technically not terrible,” Twilight said. “It’s thematically connected to the first, with your same self-insert protagonist, but I’ll be completely honest, I liked the first one better. Your character was fresh and new, and the idea of a hostage situation during Hearth’s Warming inside a Neighponese office tower was creative. This feels like you’re reaching too hard.”

“Well, maybe I did,” Applejack admitted. “I’ve got an idea for a third, though.”

“Oh, yeah?”

“I’ll be teaming up with a Zebra, and solving riddles to stop Flam’s brother as he tries to rob the Manehattan gold repository.”


“And it’s gonna involve trucks. And a train.”

Twilight sighed. “Well, you’ve sold me.”
