http://www.fimfiction.net/story/54117/whom-the-princesses-would-destroy

This fic is one HECK of a hilarious, confusing, action-packed ride-and-a-half.

Welcome to the Equestrian Civil Service. The fine half-dozen ponies that take the chronically bored and irritable nobles, the ravenous scandal-crazy press, the skitting and confusing magic academics, the hardheaded military, the ever-pranky antics of alicorns and *shiver* union workers (among far too many other insane groups) and tries to create order out of custard, jelly and ethereal horrors.
And all because Twilight thought it'd be nice to make a surprise visit to Canterlot.

10/10! Twilight Sparkle

I'm getting flashbacks to that one episode where the CMC became reporters...
*tucks the story away for later perusal*

Well now, getting rather hooked on romance stories featuring Changelings now

Working my way through the "An Affliction of the Heart" series by Anonymous Pegasus

But no, swicked, I won't be offended if you laugh when you see the subject matter.  I am aware that these two things are likely related.  :)
Finally got around to reading this. Great story. Didn't make me cry, but I did have feels at the end. Might have had more of an effect had I not already figured out what was going to happen, but still, great fic.

Oh, I had my suspicions about what would happen, certainly; that didn't seem to matter. It's probably more likely that it affected me more strongly because of my, um, train thing.

Just burned through Letters From a Friend at the End of the World yesterday.

It's great. And looks like I caught up just in time, judging by this blogpost: http://www.fimfiction.net/blog/279454/letters-from-friend-2-the-sequel

<a href="http://www.fimfiction.net/story/159685/7/hven-sent">A story</a> with similar themes to FO:E but not in that universe. Interesting read so far. Character is not OP from what I've seen.

Also, check out <a href="http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Viking+ZX">this guy's</a> writing guides. They're pretty interesting and I'd like to see your opinions on the subject matter.

But...there's no humans in the story x3

I've read a few humanxpony pics, they're not all that bad if you find the good ones, but I'm aware that it's not everyone's cup of tea

I'm not a fan of Futa and that's just as commom

Did find an interesting one that had a female human with Applejack, I thought it was adorable

@VinylShadow (Can't really think of a way to shorten your name >.>)
Apologies, was thinking of a different story. But still, [Romance] is not my particular favorite. Far and few in between are ones I actually like, as most of it I have seen is contrived, with ridiculous scenarios causing the romance.

Could just call me Vinyl or VS XD

True enough; there's plenty of impossible/unlikely scenarios for falling in love

I prefer there to be some build-up, courting, that sort of thing

Heck, in one series I read (Savage Skies) it took 3 separate stories for two ponies to finally come out and admit they liked each other

I highly recommend giving it a read

Maybe influenced a bit by Bronified's "Flower of the Season"?

Speaking of dark/tragedy, I'm super hesitant to mention this, but... Jub's Eyes Without a Face. Well written, but SUPER dark. Like, PH smells like sunshine and rainbows in comparison to the ride that Jub takes you on. You have been warned.

So. Apparently Somber's Simply Rarity made it onto fimfiction and instafeatured. Also, someone has way too much time and their hands and downvoted everyone. Heh, some are unhappy with the premise since later seasons changed the parentless Rarity, if I'm recalling the story correctly.

Just got knocked down by Onomonopia's Victor Freeze in Equestria fic. Interesting premise, where several Marvel/DC characters (and one Bioshock) get transported to an Equestria and have to deal with some relevant threat. Problem I find with the stories is that the (anti)hero/villain usually is overpowered compareted to the Equestrians to the point where they just provide moral confrontation rather than actual physical combat. Usually comes with the superhero being OP package, as there is Hulk and Supes for examples.
