Thunderfall Readers' Circle Eustatian!Wings60m9. 2247


Hey, guys. Twice a month I'm gonna grab a list of recent and featured stories over on FiMFiction, read them and leave comments. I think it'd be fun with more people, so I'd like to invite ya guys along. This isn't about fixing anypony's story, just a chance to enjoy and discuss fic with each other. Think of it as food critics just going bar-hopping for the heck of it.

Where: starting right here!
Dates: 15th and last of each month.
Time: Lists posted approximately 0500Z (when I get home) and going until whenever.
Who: Anyone who's willing to follow the two rules:

1. Everypony has to bring one positive and one negative criticism for each story.
2. Be nice.

I'd like to thank Casca and everyone who provided inspiration with the "/fic/'s Day Out" concept. It's not a bad idea, but I want to do something less ambitious and more cuddly.

That's it. Hope to see you Saturday.

I think this is a nice idea, but ultimately, I don't really see the point; it won't have any effect, and it won't be seen by anyone who's relevant to the story itself.

Still, I hope you all have fun! That's why we're here anyway, isn't it?

> won't be seen by anyone who's relevant to the story itself.

mfw I neglect to imply that comments will be left on FiMFiction itself.

TRC for 15 December 2012 Eustatian!Wings60m9. 2388

Apparently, the world has not ended yet. Let's read some stories. Just decided to scrape the featured list.

» Study Buddies
HiE, unusual formatting, starring you and Twilight. Apparently it's good enough to make featured on its first 10k words. I'm very excited to read this.

» Statue Garden
Dark/adventure with Twilight and Celestia following the defeat of Discord. Color me "meh" for now, but then again I'm not really in an adventurful mood at the moment.

» Honey Pie
I am a sucker for decently written, snuggly, and non-sexual foalshipping, so this will be the first I read. With crazy high hopes of course.

» Friendship Is Optimal: Caelum Est Conterens
Speaking of such stories, anypony read "The Ice Cream Pony Summer?" Same author, except she's doing HiE here - with a cyberpunk twist. I'm expecting this story to have the best prose of the lot…

She had thought about just ordering the damn thing from Amazon but… she wanted it now. Today. Immediately - and also, there was that strange joy in the hunt for a special item. Going shopping was not just utilitarian, it was a Quest, an Adventure, and at the end there was a big rush for the hunter-gatherer circuits of her brain.

» Listen and Learn
>Rainbow Dash comes out to her friends in a desperate attempt to find support as she flounders under the guilt of her sexual identity.
I- I- I- eh~~ Rule 1, Wings. Rule 1.

» Tinkermane
Let's skip this one. 80k+ words, and a sequel to another fic.

» The Abundance

» The Jewellery Box
Longfic. Mysterious and omnious synopsis. Not sure what to think yet.

Caution: mature content stories. In keeping with MLPchan rules (and this not being a mature thread) let's discuss them there and not here, okay?

» Sex, Lies, and Cowpony Hats
Looks like potentially very heart-warming sex drama. Then again, when clopfic goes bad, it can go really bad.

» The Love of A DJ
Anthro Scratch x You — I might not have anything nice to say about this. Rule #1.

Six general-audience, two clop, zero gore (yay!), two dropped by my fiat.


So here's how it works. In this thread: what you're reading, and if you like, try to sell it to everypony else like I did above. Super-quick reviews here.

Post opinion and discussion (1+, 1-) on the story's comments. (Save a copy for yourself so you're not entirely at the author's mercy.) Follow it with

<[url=https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1B1rtwsZ8nLczoI1XcmSHX8Q0WNdjv4rZP4njTrIUck8]Thunderfall Readers' Circle[/url]>

Duplication is encouraged, as is tackling others' opinions. Oh, and also not necessarily reading the whole thing, 'cuz some are rather long. Above all, have fun and rock your own style.

Personally, I'm starting with "Honey," a bit of Optimal, and "Sex, Lies, Hats". Also, I'm reading for a TTG review, so who knows how much I'll read?

Oh, eh heh. Forgot about this. ^_^'

The Write-Off's gonna take my spare time, so… er I'll see what I can do this week.

TRC for 31 December 2012 - New Year's Edition Eustatian!Wings60m9. 2965

» Pink With Your Heart
Looks short, funny, and shippy.

» Nosflutteratu
I've already read this, and it's the best Flutterdark I've seen in a while. There's a touch of meta, very much like a Terry Pratchett story.

»Ah Don't Need Help!
Short and canon-style.

»Combat Magic
Best synopsis is best:
What does Rarity have in common with a werewolf, a vampire, a tall computer specialist, a psychic reformed redneck, and a foul-mouthed wizard? Well, at the moment they're all human. And saving the world.


»On The Importance Of Spelling

Author says:
It seems I now have over 200 watchers. If you ask me, that’s way too many, so here’s a story I knocked out that will hopefully get that number down. …
It’s also my answer to the ‘Cadence’/‘Cadance’ debate.


» Three Hundred and Fifty
Everything is perfect. All a pony could ever want, and more. My name is Twilight Sparkle, and I want to go home.

And, from the long-fiction picks

» Myths and Birthrights
Twilicorn. Fairly long.

» Fear of Falling
Oh dear. I'm famous again. I have no idea why ponies like their FlutterDash so much, but um… I guess it's nice they like it.

Clopfic (not for discussion in this thread)

In a little home, their lives a couple with a pet pony unlike many others. Share in a typical day in the life of Shy and her extended family.
