Hold your ground but do not be unkind. (Ponyphonic, "Shy Heart") · I still like the show. A lot.

Ponyfic Roundup reviews

Read my potted reviews of MLP fanfiction on my off-site blog Louder Yay every Wednesday. The series has been running since March 2014, and I don't intend to stop any time soon!

Terramar: "I have to choose soon. Every other griff my age already knows where they belong. I'm still not sure." This suggests to me that, however obvious the episode's resolution might be to us, it isn't obvious to the hippogriffs themselves, and that they do expect to have to choose in such a situation. Maybe there's some cultural reason why splitting environments hasn't been a thing up until now, but that's pure speculation.

I was iffy about that... and then I saw "2.8k words". It had a magical effect!

I mean, you can't review 4/5ths of a pentalogy and not finish the last one!

I'm going to have to now, aren't I? :P

Now you are going to read “The Cadance Conundrum” next, right?

Hello! You're very welcome. I really should have done it a long time ago, but better late than never, I suppose. :twilightsmile: You're also welcome for the review. It won't be the last one, though as ever I can't say when one of your fics will next reach the top of my list, as I select them from the queue in an almost entirely unfair and arbitrary way. :rainbowwild:

Hello. I think I might have missed a couple of notifications over the past few days; firstly, thank you for the follow. That was a delight, and I'm happy that my work offers enough merit to warrant following me.

Secondly, thank you for featuring/reviewing 3Dance. I really appreciate you taking the time to read my work, and I'm glad you enjoyed what was an excercise in loose writing (and only slightly less loose editing!!).

So cheers, basically! :twilightsmile:

You're welcome! And I know you've read my blog review now, but "that moment" (as answered in my comment there) was what pushed it into fave territory. It was very close even before that, though, as a fine tale of an AU Sunset.

Thanks for giving Little Truths a chance! Glad you liked it! Mind if I ask what earned the fave?

2440766 I was doing a review edition with a story from every year of the fandom, but of course there was nothing on EqD or Fimfiction from 2010. So, off to FF.net I went... and ta-da, PP&A's CH! I did another one a while back that was reviewing the first six stories to get the old 6-star rating on EqD, but I don't know which (if any) of those were first published somewhere else in 2010. I suspect none, but I don't have hard evidence except for those stories that use canon from 2011. So for now at least, Cooking Hour! remains the oldest I've found.

PS: I've also read P3 Project Episode 1: The Emergency by Bookish Delight, which appeared on Fimfiction in October 2011 but which I believe is the only 2010-published ponyfic by an author who's still active in the fandom. I didn't think that much of it, but I don't think I knew at the time of my review that it was so much older than its Fimfiction publication date.

I've spent the last couple days hunting down the oldest stories in the fandom, and guess who seems to be in the comments section for all of them? Even Pinkie Pie and Applejack's Cooking Hour!? Possibly the oldest story in the fandom, the one that no one else seems to have noticed?

It seems that on my quest to find the oldest story, I've simply been retracing your (very recent) steps. Tell me, did you ever find anything older than that? I've checked FimFiction, PonyFictionArchive, Equestria Daily, and Fanfiction.net, and that story is the oldest that I could find.

And now that you've caught my attention, I guess it's time to give some of your stories a shot!

edit: I just checked the full review of Cooking Hour!, where you say that it's the oldest story that you found. Well, I tip my pith helmet to you, fellow story archaeologist!
