I'm just pretending that it's season 3 that's running instead of season 4

season 4 doesn't exist for me until June
I'll deal with it then

Well, it's "critical analysis" in the sense of the same speculation everybody's been doing in forum and blog threads since the reveal.

I personally find all of that to be a waste of time because people are rarely correct and there is a strong tendency along two lines whenever such speculation happens: pre-emptive headcanon assembly, and prejudice. The latter is a bit disappointing coming from an adult fandom for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, given how this all started and the several reality checks against every knee-jerk ragesplosion along the way.

So instead of bothering with all that crap, I just wait for the new official content to come to me in due course, while making my own in the meantime.
Celestia made me a cake for my upcoming birthday, but then she eated it. Because she's some kind of eatbeast* when it comes to cake based on two little things from the show. THAT kind of ridiculous extrapolation I can get behind because nobody takes it seriously.


*Thanks for the phrase, li1y!

I don't really care whether it's legit analysis or not so long as it amuses me, which it does.

I am the Sparta of fimfics! Huzzah!

lkasdflka;dsklf that's three times the number of fics I've faved/upvoted

yea
iirc there was a unicycle in season 2
in the cutie pox episode
just a few months after I first drew ponies on unicycles

there may have been unicycles in earlier gens, too, I'm kind of fuzzy on that

though of course unicycles are objectively terrible for use by quadrupedal ungulates, crusaders or no



I think it's pretty clear that we should all yield to Pinkie Pie's superior engineering+design genius when it comes to equine pedal power


although the front pedals aren't visibly attached to any gearbelts or anything

Friday is still Pony Day, in my mind, so it's time for a Friday fimfiction feature for five fantastic fanfics. It's not Friday yet, you say? Shuddap, I'm on a weird sleep schedule.



1) Friendship Is Optimal: Caelum Est Conterrens (heaven is terrifying)

medium-length recursive fanfiction of Friendship is Optimal, wherein the technological singularity came quietly. In fact, it's already here, and it is ponies.

This fanfic is very loosely associated with LessWrong.

The author has also written a very nice series of vignettes set in the world of the conversion bureau, called The Lost In The Herd Series: 1 2 3 4, each being an exercise in trying a different style or trick.

2) Celestia Sleeps In
...as a result, she accidentally makes first contact, and Dale (everyone's relatively open-minded redneck uncle) naively assumes that she and her kind are stereotypical technologically advanced aliens.

This is not human in Equestria, this is xenofiction, complete with language barrier and many of the common tropes (and, of course, magical ponies), but it is still quite distinct from other pony xenofictions such as Arrow 18 (where Twilight learns all about human spacecraft).
Misunderstandings abound!
Sequel: Onto the Pony Planet

3) Swiftly Falling Upwards
a LOLRANDOM fic about Celestia swiftly falling upwards
because those amuse me sometimes


4) Let's Just Say...
"Suppose I killed them all?"
Very short fic in which Celestia is stressed out.
Rated E for Everyone.

This makes four Celestia fics in a row! Let's fix that. I don't want this list to be nothing but Celestia!

5) Αλεκτρονα

Described as "almost militantly inaccessible", this is the very best unreadable literary self-indulgence I've seen this fandom produce.

_____________

These fics are all old. Even the ones that are ongoing are old, wow. But you can't possibly expect me to be up-to-date on this stuff, I've got 524 fics in my "read later" list to catch up on and counting! Counting fast! I'd need to take a year off in a pocket universe or something to catch up!

BONUS RANDOM VIDEO THAT AMUSED ME (bonus may contain DiscoShy)
