Live Reading, Reactions Bleeding Rain!DROPScczL2 3218

Hi there. No, I'm not showing you a recording of me reading a story called Reactions. Actually what this is is a thing I'm going to do for MLPCRadio. I'm going to record my reaction to popular fiction, and post the videos. What this does is show my opinion of the story (essentially a review) meanwhile (hopefully) entertaining the audience with the strange manner in which I read things. (you should have seen my face when I read Cupcakes. I imagine it must have been very creepy, cuz it felt weird.) In any case, I'll need to find some reputable fiction which I have not read and in the interest of not freaking out my audience, I'm looking for something other than the most popular request, which is Sweet Apple Massacre. Sadly I have read Bubbles, or I'd have started with that. So, does anypony have any suggestions? Preferably something less than 20k words. I kind of live under a rock, so your input might be more valuable than you think.

Is having a completed story a requirement? Or can the story be unfinished?

Well, I suppose it could be incomplete. I was mostly thinking stuff that's well known and also good. Cupcakes and MLD being the exception, but I'm not going to touch them because I've read them and they've been overdone.

How about rather than not going for popular stories? I know there's quite a few out there that could use some more love as well as their authors. That said, here's my suggestion from one of my favorite authors.

>Whipser Sun, Silent Moon


Not only is a great story, but there's a portion near the end that would certainly be a challenge to read aloud, methinks. There's also this thing one of my friends wrote.

>The Ship-Off

Why not give some of the /fic/ authors some love? There are probably more than a few authors from here who would like (and maybe deserve) some extra exposure.

Bleeding Rain!DROPScczL2 3223

I don't see why not.

No, Ion. I'm not going to read Onyx Origins. I read that already.

>Two Beats
I've actually been meaning to read that one. This could be just the excuse I need. In any case, I'm not making a decision until at least Friday.

You should read Playing Along. Apparently, people really liked it.

I would like to humbly suggest I'd Like to Be a Tree. It is quite NSFW. Cant be arsed to link it because phone.

This story is bad and you should feel bad. I don't mind reading clop for reviewing purposes, but I refuse to read that if it's being recorded.

>this story is bad and

The hell it is. I legitimately thought this story was funny and clever.

Oh it was a little funny, and I'm sure the feature box ate it up. I found it mostly repulsive, however, and the writing itself was just terrible.


Fluttershy pleasuring herself on a tree isn't exactly what I'd call "clever". What else is a clopfic called "I'd Like to Be a Tree" going to do? The joke doesn't work because the punchline is in the title.

Okay, so… the video failed. Remind me never to use XSplit 1.1. Apparently it has a history of screwing up the audio half of the recording. As such, I do not have the recorded video available, although I am working on restoring it the long way, which involves much recording, splicing, and syncing.

Suggestions are open again for next week, however, although this time I would like to suggest no clop, and a maximum of 15k words.

Tactical!fRainBOoMw 3420


I say funny because it's ridiculous, and I say clever because it actually has a real punch line, you know, like, one at the end that comes from a development in the body of the fic. I definitely laughed.

Okay, that, I will admit, was pretty funny, but this isn't the type of fiction I usually indulge myself in.

!ZspiderlS2 3424

Since BLN invaded your /oat/ thread because, well, that's what they do sometimes, I think I'll just leave this here.


Can't wait to see if you decide to do!

Keep in mind, it won't be a "Live" reading, although I should probably find a way to do that. Either way, I'm going to record it and post it on the youtube page that's supposed to be up next week. Thony will probably embed it after that.

I don't really mind the invasion, though. /oat/ is a fast flowing board and it will help keep the thread bumped. As long as it doesn't autosage before next week, I'm good.

This week, a couple of random fics
Attack of the smooze, and Snowflame goes to Ponyville


Do you think you could do a reading of this? http://www.fimfiction.net/story/27903/get-lost-in-a-book

I reviewed it for TTG awhile back and I remember it being hilarious. I think that a story like it could help us forget the whole Twilicorn thing.

RazgrizS57 !Cinderm9Hs 4060

Ha, that was a great read; almost as fun as it was to edit. Audio recordings are always enjoyable to listen to for whatever reason. I don't know why, but I was laughing along with your reactions and digressions. I'll make sure that Brian sees this.

Also, for those who are probably more interested in this: What remains of the reading of "Get Lost in a Book" by Kavonde
I accidentally the recycle bin, so the full video is gone.

Anypony who wants to hop in, I'm starting soon. I'll be reading Sweet Apple Massacre.

I've decided to switch over to a voting system, so that you can all pick what I read. Everyweek, I'll post a survey, with all the submitted stories for that week, and then pick the most voted one from the previous week to read.

This week was… disappointing, and you already know what I read.

Y'know, it's the weirdest thing to see someone's face for the first time after about a year's worth of building a mental image of them upon their imageboard posts.

Probably just one step above that awkward moment when you realize that the people around you have skeletons and lots of squishy organs.



And then you realize that you'll never see my glorious mustachioed face. Bow before me, plebs.

And then you realize you'll never see my magnificent beard.
Or stroke it.
It's very stroke-able.


Also, who turned on rainymood.com while recording it?

By the by, you sound vaguely British.

I was unaware that there was ever a depletion of WUT within your brain. It appears ample and sundry within most of your comments.

I love those moments–I like to wave at them as they pass by.

I like rainymood. I had that on. The british accent is just a thing I do.

This week's reading was Friendship is Optimal. Unfortuneately the sound was muted due to a technical error on my part. But I loved the story enough that I'm going to read it again tomorrow at 10:00am EST (2:00pm UTC/GMT), and this time I'm going to read for much longer than an hour.

whoa, cool. I'll have to check that out sometime.

By the way, did you catch my "Get Lost in a Book" video? I read it over and I still found a bunch of stuff I wouldn't have passed if I were prereading for EqD. Which is why I assumed you'd chosen it simply for the plot.

Not yet. I'm only just now getting back into ponies.
