>runs out of steam halfway, then abruptly ends

Fully on the mango side of the batpony thread, it follows a bat who tries to prove to Ponyville's she's not a stereotypical bat, only for the hi jinks to immediately end before they even really begin, leaving the story bare and in desperate need of some humor. I was also annoyed the term "fruit bat" was used to describe her, since my mind immediately started to imagine her as a literal bat.
