I'll just get it out of the way now.It's not a GoogleDoc, it's a downloadable PDF file.
MWAHAHAHA THE FIRST POST IS MINE!
@SandmanCurses, foiled again!
I can hardly wait to see the drama to come of this.
Damn, ya'll fixed that right quick.*claps*Bravo Blog-brony, Bravo.
In before the senseless second person hate.
@ Anon 3I don't like 2nd person, but I can understand why the authors want to cater to the self-insert type bronies. It's not my cup of tea, but I'm hardly going to freak out, even if I'm a bit disappointed.Oh well.<>
Techpony again. Gonna have to find a work-around for the issue with AIM's login for blogger..
Yay! Another Shipping Compilation!!I love these =3Also helps that these are really good stories
Jesus second person shipping? What is this fandom coming to. It seems to be getting worse as time goes on
These are always great! My guilty pleasure within my guilty pleasure.
Someone needs to do a pony waifu/husbandu personality test. That would be fun!And I don't get the second person story hate. Disagreeing with it, not liking it, fine. Pefectly acceptable. I don't like Dr. Whoof, and find the constant use of "Dashie" annoying, but I don't think that it somehow taints the fandom.
can't wait to read the newest compilation. It'll be a real treat
i love these things, i have the perfect time to read these too, this weekend im taking an hour long drive with my family to lake alan henry, i can read at least 3 of them. i feel as excited as twilight when she hears shes about to have sleepover! :)
Second person really makes me think 'Wow I suck' or 'Man I should have made a better choice.'
I find second person very interesting. It can be good as long as you don't give too much details about the "you" (so you can pretend it's your OC or w/e).The previous compilations have been great, so I'm looking forward to reading this when I come home.Oh, and I should probably finish that damn thing I was originally aiming for to submit to the 4th compilation. Oh well, it doesn't look like these stories are gonna stop anytime soon, so perhaps #5 will come out relatively soon.
oh.god...what have I read?
Hurrah! Positive comments! :D@Emil, I'm tempted to agree, but I have found second person to be useful for explaining the emotional state of the character forming the "you" role, kind of like a window into the psyche - especially in longer fics where the level of detail allows it; at least, that's what I aimed for in things like Bow-Ties & Burnt Sugar (despite it's shortness) / Homecoming. Also, definitely submit a fic to the SFG thread, we love seeing new writers appear and are very welcoming :) I'm actually taking a break for a while (having made enough stories to go into Vol 5, maybe even 6 already) to work on a separate project - the first chapters of which I intend to submit some time today.@Brett - Glad to hear you're enjoying them! It's good to see our little corner of the community being appreciated!@a85a etc - Thank you for not just senselessly hating on us for writing on second person writers, as for self insert... I'm tempted to disagree, yet tempted to agree. It's a strange sensation. I agree that yes, second person allows for the insertion of "you" into the role of the protagonist, but as far as I am aware, nobody from SFG has actually done an insert of themselves.Could be that I'm misunderstanding you of course?Anyway, thank you for the praise those who have read and enjoyed!<3Coffeebean.
Urk. Change "writing on second person writers" to "writing in second person".Confound this tiredness leading me to make mistakes >.>
My only complaint about these is that I want more. Lots more.
This 4th one took significantly longer to come out.Honestly I don't even imagine these as me, I just imagine some random pony doing everything, and it's in first person.
Hooray It's finally up!HI GUYS!!!
Dat final story in the bunch...*clopclopclop*
*Reads lyra story in collection #2*"WHY DID I SAY I LOVE LYRA IN THE SAME WAY AS THAT COMIC OF BON BON AND LYRA AND BIG MAC?"With the kissing and the gasping and the eeyuping *inhale inhale*
If no one gets it its the reference to that nerdy guy in simpsons (Why did i forget his name?)
I lordy lordy im going to have one heck of a dream tonight after reading that *ahem* Suggjestive fic at the end of collection #4
@AnonymousI want a LOT more too.-DarklyBristle
omg The last one, wow. Spreading your wings and hers by Crowley =EPIC, by far the best 2nd person shipping story i read, i want more like that
also, CoffeeBean, i loved the Luna story too, keep writing these stories
