Recommended Story Reviews #18 – Heretical Fictions, Tiny Wings, Shine, Taken for Granite, Groomed to Perfection · 7:33pm June 3rd

I’ve re-read Heretical Fictions a few times over the years, but kept on putting off posting a review of it until after I reviewed Eternal, as Heretical Fictions is a story about Twilight and Celestia reacting to Eternal being published in Equestria. Thus, that story’s review kept getting shuffled forward and forward in time, until finally I reviewed Eternal.

Naturally, after doing so, I fell off the side of the planet for a month and a half.

But now I’m back, and decided to finish out the review set with four more stories. Two are related to each other – Tiny Wings having served as inspiration for Shine, which is a semi-sequel, semi-prequel. Taken for Granite is the best ApplePie story I’ve ever read. And Groomed to Perfection questions one of the most popular ships in the fandom.

Today’s stories:

2344752:derpyderp1: I think what she's trying to say is...

Why MWAP though!!

MWAP can be translated as:

Wubba lubba dub dub?

Which translated:

I am in great pain, please help me?

Which in why though question form:

Why would you help me even though I'm in great pain?

Which in MLP form: Why are you helping me as a friend even when times go rough?

Which translated from girl to boy talk: Why are you keep sticking with me? Are you going to help fill my great pain in my heart?


(Warning: Translations may not be 100% accurate)

Because it skips around and doesn't give the reader the time they need to grow into the relationship.

Because it is too short, which is why you wrote a 120k word rewrite of it?

Allow me to make a prediction: you are going to find The Gentle Nights horrendously lacking. I know I did.

Author Interviewer

You fool! You have not yet begun to experience the multiverse! >:V

I have a metacritic account, but there are other Titanium Dragons out there.

All changelings, of course.

EDIT: Oh, Sentinels of the Multiverse or whatever? The card game thingy? That was probably me.

Author Interviewer

I guess there's more than one TitaniumDragon out there. :B Unless you have a Metacritic account and were poopin on Sentinels. :V

Author Interviewer

r u poopin on sentinels :V

2317162 Ah ok, I tried to see if it was there but couldn't find it so cool. I haven't read Lord of Dragons but good luck nonetheless!


I think the following stories have all made it there:

The Legend of Falling Rocks, Buffalo Brave
Through Glass
Ruin Value
Dying to Get There
Forever and Again and Again
Why Don't You Tell Them?
Recurring Nightmare
Hearth's Warming Turkey
The Fated Hour
My Fluttering Heart

I ended up submitting Lord of the Dragons.

2317108 Has 'Dying to Get There' gotten on there yet? That's a really good story and quite highly rated too.

Thanks! I'm always happy when my stories make Equestria Daily.

Not sure what story I'm going to submit to them next.

Congrats on getting your story 'My Fluttering Heart' featured on EQD! Definitely well deserved :pinkiesmile:

2290279 Got it. Why do you like the idea of her still being evil? Also, I'm not sure if I'd call it evil, more like morally grey.

Sure. But not evil in the same sense as, say, Queen Chrysalis or Sombra or what have you.

There's always the possibility to do better.
