You must've thought I was hilarious, repeatedly freaking out whenever I saw the badge of the next guy along the wall and realized it was yet another of my favorite authors.

I'm sorry, Aqua! Honestly, I probably would have read Harmony... but I haven't actually played BioShock yet. Yeah, I know I pretty much just revoked my right to call myself a gamer. Soon, though! Because I really want to play Infinite but I refuse to do so until I play the original. And then I'll read Harmony, I promise!

He's trying to spare you. If you really want to know, look up "clopfic" on Urban Dictionary.

Highly appropriate day for this to be posted.

I take it you're referring to a certain pegasus who might be described as highly . . . successful, perhaps?

Just don't read the "Alternate Ending" and you'll be good.

What kind of suggestions? Adventure? Comedy? Shipping? And what have you already read?

Damn but I really love the new cover for Life and Times.

Sweet Celestia, you can say that again.

My previous comment was too long to fit them, so have some honorable mentions, too.

Honorable Mentions: These are highly regarded stories within the fandom, but I don't think they've really made enough of a splash to be considered "must-reads."

- The Sweetie Chronicles: Fragments. A truly spectacular undertaking featuring Sweetie Belle magically traveling between the worlds of various fanfics. This story is a recommendation tool in and of itself, since you'll definitely want to read each fanfic before reading the chapter based on it.

- Upheaval. I'd say this one is second only to Dangerous Business in terms of worldbuilding muscle, and it's probably the most realistically-conceived warfic in the fandom.

- The Immortal Game (formerly known as Ponies Make War). Probably the most popular warfic in the fandom. Unfortunately seems to have stalled on the home stretch, though.

- CRISIS: Equestria. An epic alternate-universe adventure fic that I think might be best described as "The Lord of the Rings as a sh┼Źnen anime series starring the mane cast of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic." It also includes what I personally consider the best treatment of the "Elements of Discord" trope in the fandom. The plot does take a while to pick up, but there are some fairly massive payoffs later on.

And yes, I do have more. Many, many more. I was not exaggerating when I said I could go on for hours, as a friend of mine can attest. I can keep dropping them here if you'd like, otherwise, drop me a line at my FIMFiction page and I'll get back to you.
