With the season over, fanfiction shall once again take up my time!
Expect glorious impulse reads such as Golden Armor, fanfictions I said I'd read but never did, like Fluttershy's Infernal Adventure, and fanfictions I've been looking forward to for months, such Pegasus Device which is still in progress despite that huge block of bolded text of me freaking out in happiness!

And maybe I'll read some clop for you guys too.
Like. Real clop. Not just Mic saying f*yay*k over and over in funny ways. Stuff that will really screw my adulthood up. Stuff that makes me glad that I don't know anybody in this guild outside of Gaia. Maybe some more Fluttershy X Bloomberg romance or some crud.

Hm. Maybe once I get a good Internet connection I'll take up Youtube readings... We'll see.

Oats and Strawberries
Author: QTMarx

Man I need to read more often.
I was in a pretty lame mood today, just felt down, so I asked a friend for a feel-good fic and I got this!

It's a Sparity reminisce fic. Yellow for sexual content.

Let's see, it's been a couple months since reviewing so this may be a bit rusty.
The main characters are actually two OCs, a couple, Uvarovite and Dusty, colt and mare respectively. Uvarovite is Spike's great Grandson, and Dusty is his special somepony. Uvarovite takes Dusty to meet Spike in his cave and Spike shows Dusty his memories of how he got his wings. I personally teared up a bit here and there.

The characterization was, in my opinion, spot on. I saw very few, if any, grammar/structure errors, and the pacing was alright. It was sort of a series of cut of memories so it was rather simple in that regard. My only complaint is in regard to the plot, Spike apparently wasn't much of a One-Mare man. But that wasn't really explored as far as reasoning so maybe it's not so bad.

I rate Oats and Strawberries: 6/10
Was alright, I liked it, got me in a better mood, but I'll probably never give it much of a passing memory in the future. At only 13,518 words or so, it's a good read if you're bored!

Snowdrop

Fan episode #2! Much better than the last one! This one was made by Silly Filly Studios, the ones who brought us videos such as Twilight the Unicorn and Daylight's End. It's about the end of Winter and snowflakes. It's about 14 minutes long, so hard to go into plot without spoiling stuff, but I will say this was amazing. No pony puns, full of feels, and a likable, even relatable main character.

Double Rainboom is gonna have to really pull out all the stops to top this, and considering I've been hearing Double Rainboom is going to be "Brony Meme: The Episode", I don't expect it to do so. But maybe it'll surprise me! At any rate, Snowdrop was amazing. Watch it, watch it now!

All <9 of you will be happy to know I'm reading! Pegasus Device, in fact. My god, this fic is amazing and I'm only to Chapter 2. Anyways, going to try to read one chapter (or varying amount depending on sizes thereof) of a fanfiction per day to stay in a schedule of sorts, without burning myself out. Expect a review of Pegasus Device this... Wednesday most likely!

Pegasus Device
By Aurora Dawn

I'll try to hold back the screams as I write this...

Just... Man...
It's been Twenty Years since that Orange failure Pegasus tried to escape, destroying The Element of Loyalty's facility. The Factory has gone from a single Pegasus Device, to 7 Devices, and a single one decommissioned in the Theater room. The workers at the new and improved Cloudsdale Weather Facility keep the place running at top effeciency, essentially, by being there to fix problems and put failures onto the conveyor belt, as the Pegasus Device does it's job, slicing the appendages at accurate angles for the perfect amount of pain to maximize Spectrum collection...

Meet Corona, a feisty pegasus colt, and Cloud Cover, a pegasus filly with her head in the books. They're on their way to the Simple Facility after failing their flight tests.

Dr. Atmosphere, the CWC's cold yet wise supervisor, has asked the Cyan Pegasus with beautiful, violet eyes, for a new worker. Things have been a mess lately, so in comes Gentle Butterwing. An Engineer at the lower factory, the area visible to anybody who comes to work in the morning.

The story follows three groups.
The foals as they try to escape and survive the Factory.
And the workers, whether that be Pipe Gauge working on some hail stone piping, or Dr. Atmosphere trying to take the Factory by the reigns and take Cloudsdale to new heights, while that mad Pegasus lies to herself, as she is driven mad from what she did to her Sister, twenty years ago.
And lastly, Gentle Butterwing, as she gets accustomed to the dark secrets of the factory,

----

This story was amazing. It was everything I hoped for, and more. I wasn't expecting a story this long, nor engaging. I didn't expect myself to get attached to the characters who are literally torturing foals for the sake of weather. I cried once, surprisingly, not at the end. I mostly too in shock from the events transpiring to be in shock at that time. When you read this, you'll know when I cried.

The pacing was exceptional, especially in way it was set up with switching between groups. Each character got enough air time for their role in the story, which definitely helped characterization.

Grammar was spot on from what I can tell, and I definitely loved all the subtle Rainbow Factory quotes here and there. I didn't catch a single typo.

Now, if you read Rainbow Factory, you're probably expecting some grimdark as BUCK story with blood everywhere.
Honestly, Fallout Equestria was worse than this story in that regard. It's definitely violent, but there are really only two or three counts of extreme violence. And even then, the writer doesn't zoom in on it and push it in your face like in a lot of Grimdark stories.

I know this is probably very biased, especially given how much time I put forward to looking to this, but...
I rate Pegasus Device: 9/10
The only thing I could ask for is a little clarification as to what happens at the end, but that would require spoilers for me to explain in detail!
Here's to a sequel to Pegasus Device? Please?

"In the Rainbow Factory, Where your fears and horrors come true,
"In the Rainbow Factory, Where not a single soul get's through."

Pegasus Device huh? Fitting final Review for my audience of one.

I should really read through all of these one more time tomorrow, along with saving them to a external drive... Might end up picking this little review thing up over on my forums, not sure yet. Hrm. Well, for anybody who does still read these, I implore you to keep this thread alive! Lot of work put into this mess of a thread. In the event that somebody wants to completely take over the thread with their own reviews, feel free to just make a new one, would make editing your stuff easier. Though, do link to this one, would ya? I'll probably unsticky this thread when I take my final departure.
