    Uniquely structured. I enjoyed it – good to see the ponies take action.

    It was good, but i feel that more OCCs could have been developed better. Still good, though.

    The multiple viewpoints were handled really well! This was an extremely solid story, and I hope to see more from you soon!

    All I want to know is the source of that picture.

    I hear by recommend that this fic be given 5 stars at least and become a candidate for the second recipient of the 6 star ranking given to "Luna vs. the Microwave."

    It's a great read, but how was there an unstoppable storm in a land where even the seasons are controlled by ponies?

    Probably everfree forest being a douche

    @AnonymousWell well, that would be an interesting tale in itself.How did an unstoppable storm happen?Someone must be mucking about in the Forest.

    I would guess that the weather OUTSIDE the nation of Equestria set it up, with possible contribution by Everfree Forest.

    Hey, you used the image that I edited. Heh, that's kinda neat.

    *reads fic, reads the beginning of his own story where Ponyville gets ravaged by a fire*Well damn, there goes my awesomeness. I guess it's settled then; tornadoes and rain is more dramatic than blazing infernos.

  14. Bigponymac says:

    Well, I have a feeling this is going to hit home since I and the rest of Alabama went through all those tornadoes in April.

  15. Yuri says:

    That is a storm straight from hell! srs buisness!

  16. Kits says:

    @BigponymacYeah, that's when I penned the rough draft. I had the original idea while hiding in the bathroom. (It's the only room without windows). Stuff got written that weekend when we had to evac to TN as all of our utilities had gone out (power I can live w/o. Water is another matter). Editing took longer. At lot longer.>Thanks to Cupcakes Nom for his help on that.I'll tell you what: I've never wished more fervently for a cartoon character to be real than during that storm. >Also, likes the image./Now will be twice as paralyzed to publish next story.//Shadows of own success and all ^^;As to how the storm got started: I have no idea. If somepony figures it out be sure to ping me!have a gdocs link

    Loved it. The most striking part for me was the Snap Shot dioramas, the moving back and forth through the timeline was excellently handled too. Thank you!

  18. Kits says:

    @FaramI think that's my favorite part too =DI'm glad I went with present-immediate tense for it. I certainly thought it had more impact that way.It was actually the very last section I wrote!>was worried about having too much OC

  19. Tosxychor says:

    Very nice work Kits! I appreciated a lot the flashes as narrative device, and the whole part before that point was very good to keep the tension up. Gratz, and 5 stars. 🙂

    I haven't cried this much since Kamina's goodbye in ep. 26 of Gurren Lagann.

    @Tosxychor Thanks! I still think it's my favorite part@DavidReinold I still haven't figured out how to respond to this type of comment yet. On one hand, I was going for sad. On the other I hate making people cry D=.Personally, the saddest story on the site is Somewhere Only We Know.

    Damn, this was well written. Really gives you an appreciation for the people willing to tough it out up north and get blasted by cyclones every year.It's a good thing for the ponies that they don't have to worry about global warming making things worse. Too bad that's not the case for us.
