Pre-reader 63.546"s Equestria Daily Feedback Thread Pre-reader 63.546!vZ.Mh9z92U 23[View][Last 50 Posts]


As everyone should know by now, Equestria Daily has gone almost exclusively to short bullet-point reviews, except in cases where only a small number of items need to be corrected for posting. I enjoy giving longer reviews, but can no longer do so through Equestria Daily, so I will post them here. I will only do so for stories that in my estimation would have passed the old automoon system; others will get only the bullet-point treatment in the email.

This thread is only for the authors in question and me. They are free to ask questions or ask me to remove their reviews from the thread for any reason. For any other traffic, I will ask a mod to delete it. General questions about Equestria Daily or the pre-reading process should be posted here:

Note that I won't give an exhaustive list of errors; I'll provide a representative list of the types of problems I find and leave it to the author to scour his story for the rest.

To avoid repeating myself, I'll post a few of the more common discussion topics up here; your review may refer you to one or more of these.

Dash and hyphen use:
Hyphens are reserved for stuttering and hyphenated words. Please use a proper dash otherwise. They can be the em dash (Alt+0151) with no spaces around it or en dash (Alt+0150) surrounded by spaces. Some usage (primarily American) employs only the em dash, while other usage (primarily British) employs an em dash for cutoffs and an en dash for asides. It doesn't matter which system an author uses, as long as he is consistent.

Comma use with conjunctions:
There may be other grammatical reasons to place commas, but in the simplest forms, commas accompany conjunctions to separate clauses, not to separate two items of a compound subject, verb, or object. The most common simple sentence forms are:

Note that this list is not comprehensive. I picked out a few examples of each kind of error or problem I found. Of course, not everything is a black-and-white issue; this is not a list of things you have to fix, but take each under advisement.


You have an opening quote there, not an apostrophe.

>“Reschedule one or two things”.//

>“The Country Tourer”.//
Period goes inside the quotes. There are times you can make the argument that it wasn't part of the quote, but these aren't exactly quotations. You're not putting a comma before them like they're speech.

>Coloratura tried to meet her half-lidded eye, and found she simply couldn’t.//

No need for a comma there. It's all one clause.


Could use an apostrophe on the front as well, since you're clipping it short there.

>having audience with her//

Usually, that's phrased as "an" audience.

Right away, a lot of your verb choices tend toward the stagnant. You have 8 "to be" verbs in just the first 5 paragraphs. You're killing the story's momentum before it even has any. Most times, it's not hard to rephrase a lot of these things with active verbs, in the narration at least. You get leeway for dialogue, since people don't take fancy routes around such verbs, and the dialogue does need to sound natural. But as for the narration, the more active you keep it, the more interesting it is.

The beginning is also very generalized. Someone waiting to speak to Celestia is common enough that it doesn't stand out. So what can you do to make it pop? Well, look at what comes next. The narrator says she hasn't been here in a long time, and she enjoys looking around, but the detail level is so vague. If you'd just returned to a place you knew very well after being away for ages, how would you react? You'd notice lots of little details. You just mention generic things like rugs and marble floors that are stock pieces for a castle, and we don't even get a description of what any of it looks like. Impress me with how grand it is. Tie it to her personal experience. She's going to look at things that mean something to her. She doesn't just see the rug. She sees it still has the curled-up edge she used to trip on when she was young. The clock on the wall that none of the staff could ever seem to keep properly wound. A vase she remembers is gone now. Did it get broken, or had Celestia only kept it there to humor her? This is the kind of thing I'm looking for. Make this a very personal experience for the narrator, not some routine errand, since you haven't described it as one. (Actually making a routine errand interesting is a whole other topic.)

>Still, the same rugs and tapestries adorned the halls. The marble floors and walls were still//

Watch repeating a word that close.

>the guards and servants that walked the halls//

When referring to sentient beings, it's customary to use "who" instead of "that."

>poured over every sentence//

>I excused my behavior for that you needed to learn how to cope on your own//

That's pretty hard to parse.

For a rather long letter, it sure doesn't say much. it covers all the generic stuff you'd expect it to, but it doesn't have any sort of detail to it. That leaves it feeling very impersonal. It just keeps going back over that he loves her and time travel is dangerous. The bit about Luna is interesting, but it's odd for that to just now come up, so late in the story.

>Though it was not until very recent//


>her features somewhat nervous, as if she was embarrassed about her behavior//

I don't understand why this would embarrass her. It's a heartfelt emotion, one that's completely understandable.

Pony clustering on dual monitors Anonymous 2848

If there's a solution, it's not yet implemented. It happens to me too, and it happens every time I enable the "Avoid a portion of this area" checkbox. No matter where that area is set, the ponies congregate to the far right of my dual display. As soon as I turn it off, they begin to distribute themselves more evenly again.

My monitors are different resolutions, if that helps anyone debug.

It's not a huge deal for me, but I thought I'd provide some extra info for anyone looking into it or having the same issue.

Thanks for the great program!

I'm kinda phasing out of MLP at this point but just wanted to drop in. Some of my DP sprites might get dumped here for showcase or completion but this might be the last time I visit Ponychan. Also I am way too busy to do that stuff right now anyway as I now have an official YouTube channel to maintain and a very tough college schedule. Before I go, have a look at this older animation of pony me struggling with a malfunctioning smoke alarm. I know, it's stupid... but it might spark some ideas. She is my old counterpart, Prettyshimmer, before Kitty Warmwonder and Major Minty the Good Witch came up.



Yeah I know the life is rought, Just do what you feel is beter for you.

Also Who know, maybe some of those unfinished DP could be finished from someone here or osed somewhere else :)

The OC's mother has an eating disorder she picked up on a mission in a foreign land as a royal guard scout. She has no appetite and most medicines have disabling side effects due to the unknown magical nature of the condition. The OC has been trying to find an herbal remedy without the side-effects. She has tried most magical plants in equestria without much luck, but stumbles upon a plant she has no knowledge of.


So I should wait a year or two until my cartoon anatomy improves? If so, I'll put the project on hold or cancel it altogether; thanks.

Anonymous 2795

The story could actually be workable and produce feelz--I don't know how plausible it is in a magical land where everyone with a horn can make reality warp itself to suit his whims, but handled properly it is possible to make something good out of this. However it is unavoidable that you're going to get an awful lot of eye-rolling and "LOL WEED" reactions, because this kind of thing has been WAY overdone over the past ten, fifteen years, enough that just seeing it is going to leave a sour taste in a lot of people's mouths. It would have to be awfully well written to overcome that.

And yes, please practice your art. Especially eyes and faces.

bruh, bruh, i get what you're trying to do, and i respect it, but it honestly feels like you're trying to force a narrative.

this anon
has great points. however, i'd like to add that it really seems like you're a bit too gung-ho with this. there will be other stories, and comic about stoner fillies will seem silly in a year. if this really is your magnum opus, maybe take some time away from it and come up with a better reason why this pony's mom needs weed rather than say...magic.

your eating disorder thing is...okay, but it feels like it's a flimsy excuse to put weed into your story(no offense intended). the issue is that if you go with cancer, then you run into a whole host of issues relating to the tone of your comic. i don't think many people wanna read the cmc presents breaking bad except with weed.

if that's what you wanna do tho, go ahead, i'd at least be interested in checking out a page or two. but other people might call it out as being unnecessarily dark or that illegal drug dealing just doesn't work in a land where a literal god is their monarch.

interesting read. I guess that answers the question of 'what happens to your double when you enter a parallel universe'... Why didn't she want to go back to Equestria, though? doesn't really make sense to me. and what about Twilight's double? Did she end up in Newark, New Jersey? surely a fate worse than death.

I need a little help. I've been trying to find an audio project, but my leads seem to be dead ends. It is a radio play about Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash on Hearth's Warming based in part on "Gift of the Magi." It was done by Scoot-Scootaloo and talked about on Brony Time ep. 57 (http://www.bronytime.com/2013/12/episode-57-how-scoots-and-crew-saved-christmas/). However, they never said on the episode (and I've listened to it twice to find it) where the play would be available to hear after it's premier or even what it is called. I'm hoping someone here knows what I'm talking about and where it is.

Hello my fellow Bronies. As every fan of the show I created an alternate universe inspired by the end of the S5, but this is, as usual, a crossover between franchises. In this case I choose the Unreal franchise. I haven't received any advice, so I come here to shitpost my ideas.

My timeline is something like this:
>No Elements of Harmony. They vanished protecting Equestria.
>Twilight investigated the human beings. She bring some human technology to ponies.
>Somehow (I won't put here why), chaos went out of control, creating a new era.
>The Mane6 became more "divine", like a religion.
>A war between nations versus the pony empire began, because they wanted the pony technology.
>Space colonization is now a reality.

Literally every suggestion is accepted, no matter what it is.
