Synopsis; Twilight Sparkle wakes up in a mental institution with no memory of how or why she's there, so she's left constantly questioning the validity of everything and everyone around her. The last thing she remembers is going to sleep in her old Ponyvill tree house, (this fiction is set before season 3). After waking up she soon meets a psychiatrist who tells her that the last few years of her life in Ponyvill were all just an illusion, created by her schizophrenic mind to cope with life in the hospital. After meeting the doctor she soon finds that many of her old Ponyvil friends are staff or other mental patients within the hospital. All of her friends ether don't remember her or have a completely different set of memories based on the hospital. Twilight has to slowly uncover if she's truly insane or trapped in so twisted alternative world
Review; despite most of the characters having a completely different set of memories to their Ponyvill counterparts they are all easily identifiable by their mannerisms, opinions, and actions within the story. Each character is given their own backstory and reason for working at the hospital, no one feels out of place. The chemistry between characters is also extremely well done, all character interactions are feel real and are interesting. The premise of the story is both unique and well done, the hospital itself is an alive and fully believable part of the story.
I'd give it a 8/10, it would have got a 9/10 if the story wasn't abandoned 2 years ago.
This is my fist fan fiction review, I'm sorry if it's terrible.https://www.fimfiction.net/story/75199/asylum
