• Story: Sketchy Salad Symphony (Update Sequel Part 10!)



    [Normal] [Shipping] [Slice of Life] [Light Comedy]

    Author: Sketchy Sounds
    Description: What's it like to live in Canterlot, home of the princesses, assorted renowned celebrities and sophisticated ponies?
    Well, it all comes down to who you are, really - and if you happen to be a fairly ordinary earth pony, you can get on with life quite easily with few distractions.
    But what happens when life plays you an interesting hand, and suddenly you're thrown into the spotlight?
    This is a tale of the everyday, and how it can turn from ordinary to extraordinary with a twist of chance.
    This is a tale of friends, of laughter, of love and of life.
    This is a tale of who we are, and how we got here.
    This... is Sketchy Salad Symphony.

    3. Yep, the one and the same from Everfree Radio :)

      Also, seems I got ratings bombed already. I expected that though. I would say to those of you who are rational, just read it for yourself and form your own opinions ^^

    8. I might actually read this one. It would be the 3rd fan-fiction I've ever read. However, it's currently incomplete.

      It's also currently somewhere around 60,000 words long or more. It might be worth making a start XD

      Though that said I understand not wanting to read something that isn't finished, because then there's the whole suspense thing of what's going to happen next, and having to wait.

    11. I can recommend this fix without reservation. The story has been well thought out so far. Sketchy has shown an aptitude with the writer's brush easily painting the story's scenes within the reader's mind. Character introduction and development is also well handled. I encourage everypony to give the fic a try. You will not be disappointed.

      Fairly soon, I hope. I try to keep a buffer of a whole chapter's worth ahead of what's published - so, while the fic on FiMFic is up to 11th Movement right now, I am actually currently writing 13th Movement. Once I've gotten far enough through the 13th or finished it, 12th will be released and so on and so forth.

    19. FiMFic went down for a bit. Seems to be fine for me now.

    20. The story seems to be going just a bit too well, and everything seems a bit too good, but instead of having difficulty enjoying it like I thought I might, I find myself checking back for updates constantly; this fic has captured my attention big time! The story is full of a unique 'feel good' thats going to be damn hard to find elsewhere, so come and drink your fill now :)

    25. It takes me longer than I'd like to get around to reading fanfic, but when I find one that I really like, I don't mess around. This one falls squarely in that category; I started poking at it last night and ended up plowing through every available chapter before I knew it.

      I'll admit that I started thinking "uh-oh" in the passages where Octavia turned Sketchy down and (several movements later) invited him to spend the night at her house. I was pleasantly surprised to see how both of those encounters ended--which made the end of the 13th movement even more of a wrench.

      Some of the intermezzos make sense pretty quickly, while others have left a few hints out there that haven't yet hit their payoff. It's like getting a brief look at a very small section of a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.

      A very engaging read so far, and I'm looking forward to more of it. Any idea of how long this thing will be when it's done?

      I'm estimating in the region of 25~30 chapters in total or thereabouts by the time we reach the Finale.

      ReplyDelete
    27. A great fic, really heartwarming. The Finale is as amazing as advertised! Thank you Sketchy!

      Thanks! Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be over there doing a celebratory dance over finally getting this finished. 8D

    29. Ah, hello there old comment system.

      I must admit, this story looks quite interesting. The one thing I like about the old comment system is that, when we see it lately, it usually means there's a long fanfiction / story to follow.

    30. You're an excellent author and I genuinely hope that you continue to regale us with ponies. This book should be a movie... or a series of episodes.

      As has been noted on FiMFiction, a sequel is in the works. :)

    32. Would one of you delightful EqD staff please change the tags on this? The "Incomplete" tag no longer applies.
