Did I read any fanfic today? Of course not; I spent all day fiddling with the website layout! Thankfully, I have a backlog of things I'd previously posted on a fanfic blog that hasn't been online since the service hosting it shut down years ago.
So, todays fic is something I enjoyed in February 2014. Does it still hold up today? Eh...sort of but not really. There are better My Little Pony fanfics out there. But at that point, none of them had been written yet. And it's still the best (and probably only) My Little Pony+The Daily Show crossover out there. So if that's something you want to read, either because the idea excites you, or you find it as baffling as I apparently did back in the day, give this one a shot. The writing quality starts off poor, but increases quickly as the fic goes on. Sadly, if I encountered it today, I probably wouldn't have given it a second look. And that's sad, because I'd be missing out. I wonder how many good fanfics go completely unremarked just because we have so much choice these days? If an author doesn't grab us within the first phrase, we can move on to one of the ten million other fics out there. That's one of many reasons I'd hate to be a fanfic author.
Wow, that got depressing. Go read about happy ponies!
