-WARNING-

This is yet another goddamn ‘fic containing potential flamebait in the form of military sexual assault and harassment. Also hazing. And drug abuse. And just plain disturbing content in the form of the murder and torture of innocent ponies for really no goddamn reason, let’s not forget that little detail… It may not be Celebrian, but it’s definitely not for the faint of heart.

Hello hello, all you patrons! No minions today as I figured the veterans needed some time off, and more to the point this was just sort of a spur-of-the-moment thing I decided to do on a whim. I know I said I was going to take a break from riffing for a while, but recent outside events have convinced me to take on at least one more ‘fic before I turn out the lights.

You see, ladies and gentlebeings of the Library, I, AdmiralSakai, am a brony.

I wasn’t so hot on the show at first- I thought it was fairly well-written and well-animated, but it was still just a kids show made to sell cheap plastic figurines, and I actually abandoned it entirely right around Season 3. Then a friend of mine (actually the same guy who has contributed to a large number of my projects as “Nick” or “Serketry”) made me sit down and watch the “Cutie Markless” duology, and I immediately fell in love with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Mostly it’s the endless conversations I have with Nick analyzing and theorizing about the bizarre (and beautifully detailed) world Equestria occupies, but I’ve also come to truly appreciate the characters as they have developed over the show’s run, and more to the point it’s just so incredibly obvious that everybody involved in the show’s production genuinely loves their creation and loves their fanbase. Have there been bad episodes? Sure. But there have also been incredible ones, episodes that show off every last bit of creativity and skill and perseverance of a really just exceptional group of people for the whole fandom to see.

Y’ello, dear Patrons!

I’m here with the second half of this … multi-fandom pile-up. In the last lump, we made it through the opening prologue of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and meandered up to the point where Belsa’s father prepares to take his wood-chopping – or in this case, ice-block-chopping – machine to the fair.

:flips through notes:

Wow, one sentence is all I need to condense three chapters. I guess it’s pretty easy to write a summary when the fic’s all plot regurgitation.

To the fic!

E: Yup. It’s gone. EP has deleted the original From Another World.

N: But he’s saying in the new one that he made that he’s bringing it back.

C: Kinda sad. That story is three chapters long…and two of them are just author notes. I swear, this guy has been putting out more author notes than chapters recently.

N: Wait no, he says he’s only thinking about bringing it back, and he’s only doing it if people help him get all the sexism and grammar mistakes out.

E: I haven’t forgotten what he did the last time I tried to help him. He’s on his own.

C: And look at this. He says that he’s working on SIX DIFFERENT STORIES aside from From Another World/A Tale of Two Worlds/whatever this mutant abomination is called now. No wonder things never get updated.

E: This guy is a real piece of work. Well, we’re almost done with this shit.

Chapter 46 The Plan

Shepard entered Grunts old room to find Liara standing in front of a couple of guards holding pulse rifles. Javik was on his behind the guards in a meditative state. As Shepard walked up to Liara who was pacing herself up and down.

“What’s the problem?” John asked

“I’ve tried to make the room more accommodating but they are not letting me talk to him.” Liara said indicating to the guards.

“Apologies doctor but contact protocol with a new spices is assume hostilities.” the lead guard said coming up to Liara and John. ” We had to dust off the regulations.”

E: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Oh me oh may oh my could we have used this protocol when Shepard first made it clear that he was an alien.

N: Also apparently the Alliance military regularly holds spice racks at gunpoint.

Salutations, my Patrons!

I’m here with a first for the Library; a crossover between Frozen and Rise of the Guardians! I’m kind of surprised we haven’t had more fics from this crossover fandom because it is gigantic. There’s even this massive multi-crossover fandom called something like “Rise of the Brave Tangled Frozen Dragons” that mashes together not only these two but also Tangled, the How to Train your Dragon series, and Brave. 

A. K. A. – The Big Five

There are variations on this, blending together pretty much ever CGI film out there, but this seems to be one of the most popular clumpings. The main thing these fics have in common is that they are usually AUs, sometimes very whack-ass AUs, with characters from different canons drifting in and out at random. This fic is labeled as a Jelsa (Jack/Elsa) romance, so chances are only characters from those two will show up – but you never know with this particular multi-fandom.

To the fic!

E: Still can’t believe that that was a thing. I mean really? Inter-dimensional genital travel?

C: EP really does seem like he’s making shit up as he goes along. Before the story was like a game of connect the dots, but he never realized that the dots weren’t going anywhere and now he’s filling in the blank spaces with his own random and disjointed dots in the vague hope that it will lead to something good.

N: And because of that we got evil twin, which is one step above the bad guy, whose name I ALREADY forgot, going “John, I am your father.”

C: Sadly. But hey, no one ever said that he had any good ideas.

E: Let’s just get this story over with. We’re almost there, maybe we can find something more amusingly bad after this, we could use another Full Life Consequences. Or at least a bad story by someone who doesn’t let his fetishes run wild in story. I’d settle for that. Read the rest of this entry »

E: Wow. The chapters got really short all of a sudden.

C: Maybe he was too busy writing Jasmine…no I’m not saying the name to that thing out loud. Just thinking about it makes me feel pissed.

E: No kidding. I’m into some really weird shit and just thinking about that story makes me feel physically ill. Well, one train wreck at a time, something EP should really learn (seriously, he’s updated/published five half baked ideas in the past month. No wonder he never gets anything done). Let’s move onto the next two chapters.

Chapter 42 JFU and The Council.

Shepard stood in front of the air lock as the Normandy approached a small JFU ship. The Ministers where taking an high risk. They where sick of the Council beating around the bush

N: Pot? This is kettle. You’re black.

and now it was high time to show them that they are not the only ones at risk. Ash was next to her sister most of the time. She was the older sister, and older siblings looked after the younger ones.

C: Thank you for that vital piece of information. Are there are there any other basic family structure mechanics that we need to be informed of?

E: So how badly damaged is the engine?

C: Saying that it’s damaged implies that there are still bits of it left. And that’s not really the case.

N: Well crap. Princey is out cold too. Whatever Manus hit him with must’ve done a hell of a number on his healing factor.

E: Anti-stu spray? If we ever get out of this, remind me to have Goeth look into that.

N: I will.

C: Well, what do you say we all kick back, relax and rift the shit out of EP’s latest failure? Not like worrying will do anything.

E: Fine by me.

Chapter 41 Mars and the weapon.

E: Oh yeah by the way, we’re gonna be doing something for just this chapter. We’re gonna be including a one-off buzzer. At the end of the chapter it’ll be melted down for whatever Crunchy is cooking up, but right now we’re going to be keeping track of the number of firefights there are in this chapter. Remember when EP said he was playing the games and taking notes? Remember how that almost sounded like research? Turns out he was focusing on the gameplay and all of the times you fight people in game. And…well you’ll see.

(Another Fucking Firefight Counter: 0)

“Commander we have to go back.” James said as he walked after Shepard.

Ash was checking out the weapons and armour listening to the two.

C: New from the lines of the Haribon Military Industries, firearms and armor that are capable of hearing.

“Vega your out of line.” John said.

N: Vega has an out of line? I always wanted one of those as a kid.
