Just wanted to throw this out there for the few of you who might be interested in this sort of thing. I can't recall if I've talked about this before or not, so just to make myself sure I'm going to take care of this now.
Gormless is my own attempt at writing in the MLP: FiM: EG-U. It's less an attempt at something good and more an experiment; I wanted to try and figure out just how I, as a 14-year-old (with the lack of experience and know-how that implies, along with a possible case of Asperger Syndrome) at Canterlot High, would've dealt with pre-redemption Sunset Shimmer. My first blog post here at EP has a few more details, so you can check there if you'd like.
See, it's one thing to say that you'd know how to outlast her attitude, or to say that you wouldn't put up with any nonsense from her and derail her schemes without issue. The problem with that is that more often than not, we're looking at things from an erroneous perspective. If you've long since graduated from college and/or high school and attained some level of wisdom, you at least have the benefit of hindsight. If you're of high school age and you say those things, then realistically you're just setting yourself up for a serious fall: it's been my experience that teenagers believe wholeheartedly that they can do no wrong, then something happens to take the wind out of their sails. Either way, the plot has been done to death.
On the other hand, Puma Claw is not only winging it through life and trying to make it from one day to the next without anything catastrophic happening: he really has no idea what he's getting into. And he's not afraid to admit it, either.
On the off-chance you feel like reading it, then the story can be found below. My mind is flaky and slow at the best of times, though, so don't expect regular updates.
P.S. - For anyone who doesn't get the story's description at FiM, it's basically the theme song from the old Clueless TV series with the lyrics re-written to fit Puma.
