The Weekend ReaderThis week. it's just Mbulsht with one rather large fanfic.=-=-=Hostile Takeover-MbulshtThis week I'd like to step away from my shipping bubble and give you something a tad different. In fact, I'm stepping away from all of my norms in this aritcle series and presenting a large incomplete non-shipping fanfic for you."Hostile Takeover" by Coconutswallow is one of those fanfics that I like to say fanfiction was invented for. It's funny and inventive, it makes good use of canonical devices, follows pre-set characterizations well, and does this all while pushing the bounds of the canon.The basic premise is easy to swallow; Fluttershy is called upon to work at a circus as an animal caretaker and is forced to share a room with Trixie, who is one of their top showmares. Trixie, still harboring contempt for all of Twilight Sparkle's friends, gets up in arms about this. Yet she finds it difficult to stay angry at the shy mare.As much as this is a fanfic about an adorable yellow pegasus softening Trixie's ice-cold heart, it is also a story about Fluttershy learning to overcome her own personal problems. The author does this very well, all while maintaining a very canon-like regard for the powers of friendship and kindness.This one is already quite long, with its latest chapter standing at over 13,000 words. But it is definitely very much worth it.Story: "Hostile Takeover"Author: CoconutswallowGenre: ComedyStatus: IncompleteLength: 5 Chapters; 35,635 Words (currently)Link: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/6893/Hostile-Takeover
