“For a relationship that should have been acid all the way down, I like that there was some genuine connection at the heart of it. Beneath about fifty layers of acid, of course. They're sweethearts really.”

“This is peak Gilda.”

This story is a sequel to Good Trooper Gilda

Commodore Grosvenor and his crew of gryphons and ponies prepare to launch a surprise night-time attack on Mount Aris.

Magnificent action vignette, conveying the chaos of the battlefield while still being an engaging read.

Anonymous, yes. It's a perfectly ordinary name where I come from.

My father was Anonymous as well.

I'm sorry, Mrs Mayor, but I didn't catch your name?

This originally appeared in my anthology, Crackship in a bottle.

I won't spoil it for you, suffice to say it's funny and clever. (And, unless I miss my guess, based off Carabas's Palaververse!)

I had no idea what to expect, and I usually avoid Anon stories like they were contagious, but here I took a risk after some positive comments and...
Well, this is splendid, hilarious, and was a wonderful investment of my scarce free time. Thank you for it.

Vinyl remembers the doll. It's unmistakably hers, right down to the peanut butter stain on the left foot. Except it's in Octavia's closet, and Octavia insists it's always been hers. Why do they have the same doll – and the same memory?

Thanks to Solstice Shimmer, BaeroRemedy, Oliver, Mitch H, Cursed Quill and Admiral Biscuit for editing, feedback, writing assistance, fact checking and extraordinary patience.

“These otherworldly phenomenons are surprisingly interesting.”

“This has been one hell of a ride. I would go so far as to call this a minor masterpiece. It is quite unlike anything I have read up to this point (and I have read, approximately, a metric shit ton,) and it has left a real impression on me. So many try for the psychological mystery and fail horribly, but this was incredible. The reinterpretation of classic characters, concepts, and scenes from the show were amazing. With so many, I expected a few to fall flat, but you nailed every one.”

“So intriguing...
I can't stop reading it!”

“I like that this story is bringing up topics now that are incredibly complicated from both a moral and existential standpoint. [...]
Ok, ok, tldr; I like this a lot, because it’s making me and others think about the possibilities.”

“That was a really creative and unique presentation. Even though she's just a robot, I really felt for Sweetie towards the end.”

“I really like what you have done here. You have taken the wonder for the unknown and the strive for a better tomorrow from the science fiction genre, and molded it with FiM perfectly.”

Chapters (4)
