    Krastos the glue maker? geez Seth, This I gotta see.

  2. Nice job showing how people change over time, not bad!

  3. Solidly written, with a massive emotional punch to the gut. Definitely earned its [Sad] tag.

    ^ All this praise, yet I see 2 1/2 stars. Some explanation would be nice.

    I would have liked more Krastos, but it was a nice read though.

    Better prepare myself for class reunions in some years.

    Dunno about this one. It jumps around a lot in its pacing, but it generally errs on the side of moving too fast.I am legitimately curious about what the hell went on before this story started, but its already giving off vibes of "so much bad shit happened that my suspension of disbelief will be shattered when I hear it"

    This is pretty well written, but a few things irk me. 15 years isn't long enough, that would make Applebloom around 23-25 years old, and she's already been mayor for 10 years. It would need to be like 25 years later to make sense at all. Also, I don't see why it was really necessary for all that destruction to happen. It doesn't add anything to the story for me, instead, it just makes me wonder "WTF?"

  9. Ace2401 says:

    Read the second part, and, well, I can't get into it so far. It's just that the little things don't line up, like Cheerilee wouldn't be that old even after 25 years, much less 15. It's not that it's bad, it's just that I can't take it seriously. It's more random than it is sad. However, Dinky being a powerful mage is pretty awesome.

    Pony years =/= human years

    Meh, I don't buy that.

    I would star-rate this, but the little widget's broken.It's not bad…just, not really sad either. It seems quite erratic and while there's the underlying foreboding, it's quite confusing. I.e., part 1 implies Ponyville was razed by a dragon, part 2 implies a war between the royal sisters and Krastos.

    SpoilersHmm. I seem to appreciate this more then most. The causal mention of Apple Acres' destruction especially. Not just for Applebloom, but the general idea of a family business upheld for generations gone… I assume we will learn more about Applebloom and how she got where she is. Wonder where you'll take it. On the one end it sounds as if she should be happy enough, but it seems pretty clear she is not.

    I kinda agree with the others. It's very….I dunno, it's like the backstory was added for TEH DRAMAZ. Or as if it's a sequel to an unwritten story. Plus, never visited once in 15 years AND they don't even know what each other is doing? Sorry, I can't really keep up with that as being right…
