Interview: Dafaddah's Alone · 6:35pm Jan 22nd, 2014

Despite the dark tag, Alone is a story about love and family. We see the love between Twilight and Celestia, between Twilight and her brother, and between Spike and Twilight's parents. We also see the love of the changeling queen for her brood. Even weird bug things will do anything for their family! So despite the darkness and death, in the end this was a heartwarming story that reaffirms the values we’ve come to expect from a show like Friendship is Magic.

Interview: Cold in Gardez's The Wind Thief · 3:29am Nov 27th, 2013

The Wind Thief is the only crossover I love as much as Fallout: Equestria, and after talking with Cold in Gardez, I'm not surprised: the things I love about one are the things I love about the other, and he intended it that way from the beginning.

Interview: JawJoe's Twilight Sparkle: Night Shift · 3:54am Nov 22nd, 2013

Twilight Sparkle: Night Shift is a lot of fun. It’s part Men in Black, part H.P. Lovecraft, and part Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. On November 16th, it won the Foal Free Network’s Stories Back from the Read 2013 contest, beating entries by ToixStory, theswimminbrony, and RavensDagger. Though how someone with less than 100 followers can win a popularity contest against people

Eakin's A Taste of the Good Life · 1:30am Nov 15th, 2013

I’ve always thought of myself as the arch-nemesis of fluff, but A Taste of the Good Life finally convinced me that fluff and conflict can live together in harmony and both be better for it. In this interview, Eakin talks about the relationship between fluff and conflict, as well as some of the ideas in the story and the choices he made in writing it.

Interview: adcoon's Uniformity · 1:59pm Oct 4th, 2013

Uniformity is one of my favourite adventure stories in this fandom: epic scope, a conflict-filled romance, and a mystery that only deepens the further you read.

Interview: TheBandBrony's Letting Your Mane Down · 12:23am Oct 3rd, 2013

Letting Your Mane Down” impressed me by telling a funny story about Twilight getting a manecut. If that’s not slice-of-life, I don’t know what is.

Interview: The Descendant's Zenith · 4:02pm Jul 31st, 2013

Zenith is the best story I’ve ever read about Spike, and it’s one of my favourite fanfics ever. It’s heartwrenching, beautiful, and breathtakingly epic. The Descendant’s professional life involves working with children, and he brings that experience to Zenith, painting a vision of Spike so compelling that it completely redefined the way I see him. In this interview,

In this interview, The Albinocorn and I talk about what makes a great time travel story and what it’s like to go through three rounds of revision with an EqD pre-reader.
