A "post-canon" Who Wants to Live Forever Twific. Cut it after four chapters. The "switch POV every chapter" was annoying enough, but it totally throws away the primary gimmick of a post-canon plot of what's everyone doing in favor of rushing right to the climax of the Who Wants to Live Forever, instead of stewing it for a dozen chapters. The primary flaw was setting it after the M5's deaths, so there's a gaping void of characters that just can't be filled by the alicorns by themselves. It was also starting to give me warfic vibes, which I was completely uninteresting in reading.
