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.http://www.fimfiction.net/story/69821/study-buddies
» 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.http://www.fimfiction.net/story/69997/statue-garden
» 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
» 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…http://www.fimfiction.net/story/69770/friendship-is-optimal-caelum-est-conterens
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.

» 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.http://www.fimfiction.net/story/69342/listen-and-learn
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.http://www.fimfiction.net/story/39051/the-jewellery-box
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
» The Love of A DJ
Anthro Scratch x You — I might not have anything nice to say about this. Rule #1.http://www.fimfiction.net/story/69962/the-love-of-a-dj
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.

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?
