Nope. Hint: Think Ponyville. Or you could just look it up.

A link to the fanfic would be appreciated

Finished the latest chapter of H'ven Sent. Reading that was like seeing what happens when Blackjack goes easy-mode. Things progress a little too fast for any characters to truly develop. Stilly finding it funny that it touches a lot of plot points parallel to Somber, without ever reading either fic.

Now currently on <a href="http://www.fimfiction.net/story/20514/22/the-stranger-and-her-friend">this</a> wonderful piece of work. A lot of good storybuilding, solid writing of action and dialogue. Goes into Discordian times with Celestia. Haven't seen a spot of Lulu anywhere just yet though.

Read A Dark Knight For Equestria and The Strongest There Is and enjoyed both

Heh...Scootaloo and Batman...fitting

Hulk and Pinkie Pie was rather hilarious though

Query: has anyone tried reading Broken Steel in such a time that they still remember things about it? I just remember that I didn't like it, but not the reason.


On topic: I've found something curious. Somebody has apparently taken Evangelion (Re), and removed the angst.

Re: Optimalverse
Definitely fits the cosmic horror genre, what with the uncontrollable doom of the cast to live out the rest of their life in an electronic personalized utopia.

Latest new story I've read is <a href="http://www.fimfiction.net/story/171911/4/take-two">this</a>. Twi goes back to the beginning and tries to 'fix everything'. Deviations from the original stories. A bit interesting, but definitely don't like the way Twi is a bit more liberal in usage of power. Remember that dragon from <i>Dragonshy</i>. Beats him up, kicks him out, then nicks his hoard.

I'm reading that one too. I was a bit dissapointed at how quickly the secret came out, but I'm trying to reserve judgement until I see what the author does with it.

Celestia destroys the entire solar system because she doesn't understand LOD usage

Wonder what happens when she runs into aliens that then destroy everything that makes up "Equestria Online"

I read the first two chapters of Somber's new fic, Broken Accords.
It's pretty good. It doesn't hook me as strongly as I'm used to from other fics I've picked up and read lately. It starts slow.
But it gets progressively more interesting after first blood.
6 or 7 out of 10 so far, I think. Again, I've only read two chapters so far.

If anyone else is interested in it, Somber would prefer those who read it to discuss it on fimfic instead of here. Probably since more discussion there increases its exposure.

I wrote a reaction image-enhanced reading review of it before I realized that, though, so anyone that likes reading those from me should PM me. It's basically going to waste, otherwise, looks like.

It would be huge. The margins on fimfiction are much less wide than on here and stretch things out much longer than they need to be.
Additionally, there is no spoiler tags, so it would completely dominate the comments section without the ability to collapse the comment, which is obnoxious.
Add reaction images on top of that and it would be more of a burden to read and scroll through than anything else.

Fimfic is designed for fairly short comments of analysis and approval under each chapter, which then get replicated to the main story page. I took my review, removed about 60% of it plus images and jokes, and posted it, so it's mostly there for Somber to use.

Hm. I'd thought that it did have spoiler tags, but apparently those are specifically for images. Ah well. Sorry.

Reading my way through more more Detective Comics crossovers

Once you get past the absolutely cringe-inducing grammar, it's a surprisingly good read

Also found a Kingdom Hearts crossover

Needs more Roxas though

Dun like the Mr. Freeze one though. Too much of a jerk. Also convenient that somepony gets into a suspiciously similar situation as Nora.
Gave up trying to comprehend Kingdom Hearts. Simplified it by just blaming everything on Xenahort. Usually works out.
In the process of practicing prereading for an author I like.

I actually understand KH pretty well for not having played any game but 358/2 Days

hence my love for Roxas

Thank you wiki!

But yeah, it pretty much keeps coming back to Xenahort, whose name I keep mispronouncing even after having watched Everglow's Kingdom Hearts videos

He made a pretty epic BBS Chronicles series that merges the stories beautifully

KotOR: A Very Unauthorized Rewrite

From the same author who'd made "Inglorious Bosh'tets". Read it. It's great.

Recently finished "The stranger and her friend" - overall impression is good!, thanks for link. Weak sides - Twily (unnatural cold hearted :/) and some battles; anyway it was wonderfull read in many other aspects.

Btw, who liked "Frendship is optimal" + "Frendhsip is optimal: Always say No" - there third one in this universe: "Frendhsip is optimal: Caelum est conterrens" and it's delivers (guess because author is transhumanist and knows theme).

Reading Triptych 

Not to be confused with another story of the same name...

Not sure what I can really say about it; words just seem insufficient, or my vocabulary isn't as expansive as I'd like it to be

Urohringr is in the cooling down phase. Nine more chapters until the next story in the saga.

...this looks interesting.
Adding it to the pile.

Probably going to be culling the list of fics I'm following before long. Rites of Ascension, for example, has been pretty stupid for the last three chapters or so.

Urohringr has concluded. The Austraeoh saga will continue with Yaerfaerda. (at least, I'm pretty damn sure that's what the next book is going to be called. He hasn't posted it yet)
