Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz read “Wondercolts Forever!” It’s the new book about teenage Celestia and Luna from Equestria Girls. It’s not exactly the deepest story, but they find some stuff to talk about. It has Friendship Games, pranks, and class elections. Oh, and a human version of a character from Equestria’s past. Plus an attempt to flesh out Cinch.
