Which mechanics post should I feature on my user page?  I just can't decide.  It's time to take the easy way out and create an index post!

Recommended Authors

Authors are listed in alphabetical order.

CvBrony - I love the stories.  Love them.  And the worldbuilding.  The only thing I do not love is the update schedule (although there is a very good reason for it).

Daetrin - the worldbuilding is absolutely phenomenal.

Estee - seriously, just read the stories.  They're good.  Triptych's worldbuilding is also excellent, and most of the stories use it.  Almost 100% upvoted.

Horse Voice - do you like horror?  You'll  like this author.  Even if you don't, I can't recommend The Writing On The Wall enough.  Not recommended: The Great Purple Unicorn Troll (the stories were good as blog posts, but not as a story).

Pineta got science in his ponies.  Or maybe ponies in his science?  Either way, two great tastes that taste great together.

RustPony.   I may be jumping the gun on this, but his first short story is lovely and his second story is off to a strong start.  Both are HIE, but unconventional.

Skywriter - One of the people behind Skin Horse.  Everything is worth reading.


This guy.  Does not write any horse words, as far as I know.  He writes under his real name (as far as I know), and may not want that tied to fimfiction.  Even so, I must recommend his work.

I recommend both of the long-form stories: Fine Structure (sci-fi), Ra (urban fantasy, sort of?).  Also the following shorts: "Causal Noose", "I don't know, Timmy, being God is a big responsibility", "Be Here Now" (Ed story), "The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread" (Ed story), "Time Loop", and "I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library"

No, thank you for writing The Celestia Code.  And, preemptively, the same for The Luna Cypher
