|Reviews for The Dresden Fillies: False Masks|
| HiddenMaster chapter 25 . 6/22
I said this in a review for the prequel, but I will say it again: this is beautiful. The premise is surreal and at times a bit wacky, but the heart put into this is unbelievable. I loved reading every sentence of this and, on reaching the end, I felt like crying because it was over.
This story is true to both the Dresden Files and My Little Pony franchises in every way, every character is natural, and the story, surreal as it is, is entirely believable. Furthermore, it is so good to see Dresden actually have warmth and love in his life (admittedly with an assassination plot and conspiracy afoot, but that an average weekend for him).
I don't know what else to say other than that I love this series, and I can't wait to read more, and please, continue. This is a work of beauty that by all rights should continue.

Awesome story. I really loved the way that you have had it set up. I am thinking that the dragon is akin to Alduin from Skyrim, is that correct? I can't wait until the next story.

It is awesome. Great merge of canons. trial is great. Celestia's talk with harry and bits of her past, especially following spirit,are awesome. Finally he didn't piss off some powerful entity. i wouldn't say they're powerful as Mab/Titania and Archangels/devil, but certainly somewhere along lines of Ladies/Archive or Lea/Kringle and Erlking.

I really enjoyed this crossover. I first saw it and wanted to see how the hell you'd merge such different universes. The results were a pleasure. The humor and action were awesome. And your character interactions made me go 'aw'. It's a relief to finally see what the end game was, but it was fun getting there. :)

For some reason I really wanted Luna to forcibly molest/have her way with Harry. It would have been too damn hilarious and also kind of awesome. Having and immortal pony goddess/princess of fenomenal cosmic power have her way with you... well... kind of hard to say 'no', and I'm sure it would be more pleasant than Harry's one time romp with Mab :D

"climactic", not "climatic". (The former comes from "climax", the latter from "climate".)

This has been amazing! I can't wait for Great Power. Already bought Skin Game, it was awesomness incarnate. Wonder who Keen Vision's related to? Will Great Power take place on earth, with the Mane Six in human form? Or will Harry return years later, without Lash? Or will he test Celestia's ire? Betting on the first one, but I'm so psyched!

This story was so much win. Will you ever do a ponies in Chicago story?
| spicarus chapter 25 . 5/30/2014
Nice finish. Now I've got to do the hardest thing possible...wait for the sequel.
I was kind of hoping to see Twilight in Chicago and to see Molly get involved.

So... the story is finally completed.
*slow clap like in cheesy sports movie.*
It is time to give you my full review. There is no words that I can use to express how much I love your story. Your writing has improved greatly since 'Strange Friends' and it kept me nawing at the bit in anticipation the whole way though. You characterization is near flawless, keeping most of the original flavor while spicing it up with your own and letting it marinate and slow cook to amazing development (why am I hungry all of a sudden). The story kept me guessing while not going over my head. The plot twists were well executed, unexpected, and believable. It was a great ride the whole way through and you should be proud to develop it.
There, however, are some issues I have. Well... just two. First, what happened to the reunion between Dresden and the Mane Six. It seemed like you were setting up for a touching reunion between the two and then, all of a sudden, the are setting up to fight [Redacted due to spoilers]. That was a major missed opportunity which sadden me a bit. Second, the pacing in the last fifth. At first the pacing seemed to slow down after the raid of the second stronghold. Then after that off screen reunion, you seemed to floor it to the conclusion. The pace itself in the final encounter is about right for an action scene, however, the previously mentioned missing scene and sudden rise in action did cause whiplash. Maybe you just saw the finish line and got excited, I don't know. The end of a long story can cause writers to be rash, and it hurts the ending a bit, so be careful.
Again, I had no major problems with the Doctor and the punishments given to the true bad guys were reasonable. Extreme enough to make a statement while keeping to the Equestrian ideals of non-violance. As it should be (Question: How much of that idea for the punishment came from Stardust? I can't help but think Jail Breaker when I read that part.) Also, that little slice of karma was exquisite, even if it did lead to the next problem taking the stage. No rest for Dresden and the ponies, I guess.
I am still reading the Dresden Files series (up to Death Masks now) and I still have no regrets. I have a feeling that if Jim Butcher found and read your story, he wouldn't either. Thanks for your hard work and for introducing me to two great series. I look forward to your shorts and the sequel this fall.
P.S.: What is the likelihood of seeing a short with "post Winter Knight/ Skin Game" Dresden and post "Princess Twilight/ Twilight's Kingdom" Twilight meeting up? It doesn't have to be something big like "Cthulhu Awakens" or something like that. Maybe just talking over a cup of tea and reflecting. It would be refreshing after canceling the apocalypse so many times. Just a thought.
