"For fun" is the best reason to do anything. "The best" is the best way to do everything.

The Man Himself!

Having been a fan since the first quarter of 2012, MyHobby finally decided that participating in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom wasn't nearly as weird as he had at first thought. Deciding to share his not-weirdness with the entire Internet, he registered on to FIMFiction.net in order to publish his works without all of that silly "working with an actual publishing company" stuff.

He also decided that his best legal defense was to stick his head between his knees and kiss his portly rump goodbye. He hopes to this day that Hasbro will not notice the nerd currently making himself a nuisance around the Internet, and wishes them many a long season to come.

He seems to be physically unable to work on any one story at a time. Eesh.

Pinkie Pie is his hero, just saying.

So is Rainbow Dash, but slightly less so.

Yes, it's the long-awaited sequel to In the Absence of Sunset Shimmer, featuring more Sci-Twi, more Sunset, and more multiversal headaches than ever before!

This time, the action centers around the Equestria Girls universe, exploring the changes magic brings to our favorite heroes, and the world as a whole. Twilight shall investigate a murder committed with magic, while Sunset Shimmer is invited to visit a school dedicated to teaching the mystic arts.

And since I hit the post button before I was finished, here's the cover:

I'm glad to hear you liked it! Hyperportentia is my most critically-acclaimed story (which sounds pretentious, but it's really just pompous), but I do have a few others that've gotten a thumbs-up here and there...

Scootaloo Will Fly! sounds pretty basic, it's right there in the title, but it's sort of a reconstruction of classic Scootaloo stories. Take those tropes and reinvigorate them. It's an interpersonal drama about the relationships Scootaloo has with other ponies, and how they've helped her come of age. It's growing up, following dreams, finding your place, that whole shebang. It has a heavy focus on Cutie Marks, but takes it in a different direction than Hyperportentia does.

The prose is a little dry here and there, and the ending has my audience split on whether it worked or not, but I still like it.

Hay-oh, Welcome to Hayburger is a slice-of-life that takes place before Episode 1, showing how Rarity and Pinkie Pie may have met. It's similar to Hyperportentia in its relationship between the main characters, one having a fairly glum outlook, and the other trying to lift their spirits. It's a pleasant little one-shot.

If there's a problem with it, it's probably too short, and it's got at least one glaring fourth-wall joke that doesn't jive with the tone of the story.

In the Absence of Sunset Shimmer takes a look at the Equestria Girls universe several years in the future. The girls are grown up--some even married--and the world has mostly settled after their high school shenanigans. The plot kicks off when the human Twilight Sparkle discovers a murder mystery that leads right into Equestria. So Sci-Twi and Sunset Shimmer have to travel across the mirror portal, introducing Twilight to a world of magic.

It was written before Friendship Games aired, so it's far and away non-canon; Twilight's been studying magic all these years, but never seems to have all the pieces put together. It's an adventure with heart, and has some of the funniest moments I've even written. Some of the most intense moments, too.

Those three are the ones that come to mind when I think of stories that people liked. They're all fairly well-constructed, and I'm still pretty happy with them, even having grown as an author.

After those, other stories I'd personally recommend:

Lord Mayor Applejack

Blueblood's Ascension; or, Alicorns Just Aren't What They Used to Be

The Criminal Mind of Fluttershy

DayBreak

I hope you enjoy yourself! :pinkiehappy:

I read and greatly enjoyed Hyperportentia; which of your stories should I read next?

Well, the sad thing is that the series is over. Finished. Complete. The arc carried over from Alicorns Just Aren't What They Used to Be to Even Alicorns Have Dreams. Beginning, middle, end. There just isn't much desire to write it anymore. :ajsleepy:

Of course, the benefit of that is that you can experience the entire story as it stands today. It seems as though you've enjoyed yourself. I hope so anyhow.
