    Drama A Demons Tale

    This is my first time actually writing a short story or anything at all for that matter. So Id thought I would make it about my OC Daphnes's backstory. Laurel does make a small cameo at the end so she is owned by @chaosprincess . So without further adieu here it is. Welcome, weary traveler I see you somehow managed to get into my humble abode. I am not particularly happy about this, and I probably would have just gotten rid of you at first sight. But I am in a good mood so I will let you stay for a little while. Well, Since your here I might as well be a good host and fix you a drink. So tell me what would you like? He leans his ears forward to hear his guest better. Alright, a cup of tea it is. He says going over and starts to prepare it for his surprise guest. But as he begins to prepare it he feels his guest's eyes fixate on his wings. I see you keep looking at my wings. He sighs giving a somewhat of an annoyed look. You may not believe me but they are just an illusion but my horn is real though. I suppose now you want me to tell you how I got these things. Well, its bit of a long story so go take your bathroom breaks now or perhaps grab a snack if you want. My story begins long ago in a land far away. You see my kingdom was not like the ones you know today. Where love and friendship reign, a fact I get sick thinking about it. Now I started out as what you ponies would call your typical unicorn. As time went on I found out I was not birthed in the way foals are normally born but given form from the hatred in a ponies heart. So a good chunk of my formative years was spent on the streets getting by on what I could for food and shelter. Since no pony would accept a colt like me in their home for reasons I think that is pretty obvious to you. For you, I will divulge to you the reason. In the areas I grew up or lived in the citizens would believe just by judging by my appearance that I was cursed or some harbinger of ill will that will kill all their livestock or their crops. That all changed one day though when a hotshot commander discovered me in his travels. He took me under his wing and after some intense negotiations with the queen, I was made his second in command. For a while there I was pretty happy with my lot in life. My jobs were to train the guards and patrol certain areas of the city. I will have to admit though watching over the market area was my most favorite part. Since the area was pretty lively not to mention the vendors would give me free things like food or other wares. Even with my high-ranking, there were still some ponies that didn't accept me. The rumors kept swirling that I was this abomination and that I was no way near good enough compared to my counterpart. As much as I trusted my right-hand man he still got all the love and admiration from the people that I so rightfully deserved. Why couldn't I get the credit for the fights we won or victories that were earned from my blood and sweat? No, he was the golden boy whom everyone loved. As he talks his eyes start to change slightly his voice getting slightly deeper. Once realizing his temper was getting the better of him he composes himself. Taking a deep breath he says. I do apologize for that little temper flare up that subject still pisses me off to this day. But anyway now back to my story. From that spitefulness, I rejected the old name that I had shared with my brother in arms and renamed myself after a past king, Daphnes. I wanted to make my own identity not one my queen and my comrade told me to have. Embarrassingly though at this point in time I never managed to get what you call a cutie mark. So I used my armor to cover up the fact. But as just as my hope for acceptance was waning there came my first love. That day I was watching the market as I usually did and out of nowhere this mare just charged into me. As I looked up I saw the angry vendor that she was running from. Turns out she stole some bread and tried to make off with it. Seeing a bit of myself in her I decided to pay the vendor for it and along with a few other things. Surprisingly she was not taken aback by my appearance and from there we got to know each other quite well. It even got to the point where we fell in love and shortly after that we were wed. As happy as my married life was I still had matters to attend to at the castle. Even more so now than ever since we were expecting our first foal so I had to make this country safe enough for our little family. Which at this point in time had become quite tense. My kingdom was on the brink of a war with a neighboring province not to mention there was quite the divide going on internally as well. But to make a long story shorter the queen herself held quite the prejudice against me and it did not help matters either that I refused to be her faithful lapdog. The queen would much rather banish a race than actually speaking with them on peaceful terms. As time went on the tensions only got worse. Then the day came that I will never forget. Not because it was a happy one but a tragic one. One day my queen had ordered for me to go on an intelligence mission to get information about a rebel faction that was plaguing the kingdom at the time. Little did I know she had rallied up her men against me. She knew she couldn't eliminate me because of what I was. So she went for the next best thing. I had forgotten something that day at my home so I decided to quickly teleport home to go get it. When I arrived I had to witness the last moments of my wife's life. I ran over and held her watching the last remnants of her life fade away. After she had passed I got to my hooves and looked at the guards standing there. They were profusely apologizing saying the queen had forced them into doing this. No more would I listen to their damn lies. I wanted my vengeance so now I was going to get it whatever means possible. As soon as more bull crap left their lips I eviscerated all of them leaving their blood to paint my walls. I then ran outside as everything faded to black. All I could remember was the sounds of screams and peoples pathetic pleadings for mercy. When I came out of my haze there stood my counterpart. He kept telling me to stand down and that we could work through this together. I was no longer going to bow down to him or anyone else. That was when I charged at him with all my might. From there we battled in the flames of our fallen city. Just as I thought it was my end. A sudden surge of power went throughout my body. My new wings sprung out leaving my adversary frozen in shock. Using that to my advantage I flew up striking him in the face with my blade. Seeing him go down I knew what I had to do next. Flying up I took cover on a high ledge. Looking down I could see the place I called home for so long was now a smoldering ruin. Everything that happened came back flooding my mind with painful images along with a surge of tears. Through my tears, I could not help but notice a faint glow coming from my flank. In removing my armor I saw that dreaded mark. It was a white rose splattered with blood. From then on I would go on wandering from place to place. Knowing I could never go back to the place I once called home again. Well that's it kid did you like my story? Good, I am glad you found some entertainment out of my misery. Hold on he looks behind his guest spotting a certain small gem-eyed pegasus using her wings to make bunny ears above his visitors head. Laurel, were you there the whole time? He sighs but laughs a little at what she's doing. You are so dead when I get to you. You know that right? The mischevious pegasus darts off into the next room laughing a little. Looking over at his guest again well I have to deal with this intruder please let yourself out once you are done. But I will have to warn you if come back I cannot guarantee your safety. Well to da loo Welcome, weary traveler I see you somehow managed to get into my humble abode. I am not particularly happy about this, and I probably would have just gotten rid of you at first sight. But I am in a good mood so I will let you stay for a little while.

    Bit of Backstory for She(OC)

    (Repost due changing blogs) Just for starters, I'd like you to know that, this is m First ever story of any kind in English. It's kinda a backstory to my OC, She. Or at least some history about Her. Warning: Slightly dark, includes death. But not in detail. Characters: Daisychain: White pegasus mare with beautiful blonde mane and tail. Magic Potion: Dark blue stallion with short brown mane and tail. Unicorn. Potion junior (Called Junior): Male unicorn baby. The nameless mare (also known as She): https://mlpforums.com/uploads/monthly_03_2017/post-35322-0-95755200-1489681586_thumb.png 300-400 years ago from present day... Potion was heading home, he had been collecting some plants around close by forest for his potion research. He had focused to collecting so much that he had forgotten to check time, and now it was getting late. As he approached the house, he could tell that something wasn't right. From window next to the front door, light was shining through like usual, but the window seemed to be frosty from inside. Potion opened the front door carefully, ”Daisychain?” cold air hit his face and when he entered the hallway, he froze. The hallway, no, the whole house was filled with fog. From the living room Daisychain's scared voice was heard. ”Potion?” ”Daisychain!?” Potion rushed to the living room and was met with strange light blue mare looking at a picture of his family, and Daisychain in the corner of the room standing over Junior, staring at the mare. Potion lit his horn, ”Who are you? And what are you doing in our house?”. The mare turned towards Potion ”I'm not surprised you don't recognize me Potion” ”My appearance has changed quite bit since we last met.” Potion took step forward ”Answer to my question!”. The mare looked towards Daisychain with her empty eyes, ”You have beautiful family Potion, something I always wanted.” ”Potion...?” Potion shook his head slowly, ”I have no idea what you are talking about.” ”Two years ago....I was so happy Potion” The mare looked sad as she turned back at Potion ”We were made for each other.”. Daisychain looked at Potion confused ”Potion, what is she talking about?” Potion shot magic at the mare. ”Cut the nonsense! Daisychain, get Junior safe.” The mare moved to block the door with unnaturally quick dash, ”oh no, I don't think so Potion, she'll have to hear the truth.”, ”truth?” Potion stared at the mare, he was angry, ”There is no 'truth', mare she are talking about is long dead.””Dead? You haven't told....” ”Of course he haven't, he killed me!” Daisychain was shocked, ”What! I-is that true Potion” ”Of course n...!” ”Lies!” The mare dashed towards Daisychain sending her flying to another side of the room and was now standing over Junior who was so terrified that he didn't even cry. ”Tell me Potion, are your secrets more important than your family...” She raised her hoof, like she was preparing to attack Junior ”Stop!” Potion shouted ”If you are who you say you are, how?” ”The Mask” ”That mask...” Daisychain got herself back to her hoofs and in mix of panic and anger looked at Potion. ”Who is she Potion? Why is she here?” ”I...” ”I explain” The mare carried Junior to Daisychain before turning towards Potion, ”Two years ago Potion and I were like you two are now.” ”Then he poisoned me.” ”You can't imagine what it feels like, to wake up and feel nothing but cold, to find out you're dead.” ”I didn't know what happened to me first, but when I got to know, I could't believe it first” she was rather hostile towards Potion now ”I thought he loved me, I gave him everything!” Potion tried to explain ”I did...But that mask corrupted you, it was best for everyone.” The mare launched at him throwing him over, ”Who are you to choose what is best for me! You stole my life!” Potion slowly lifted himself back up, the attack had hurt. He spoke quietly, ”And every night and day I have been filled with regret bigger than you can imagine.” The mare then got closer and whispered to Potion's ear, ”It's too late for apologizes, goodbye my love.” She then kicked him, killing him. ”Potion!” Daisychain ran next to Potion, ”No!”. The mare looked at Potion's body, ”He paid the price from his actions.” She then turned towards Magic Potion Junior, ”From this point on, shall Potion's name be cursed with my presence.” Then she and the fog disappeared leaving only baby and his mother with Potion's lifeless body. THE END It's far from perfect, I know that, but it's what it it, and will be.
  3. Hey, you remember the two Tempest's unicorn ex friends in her back story? They are Glitter Drops (the green), and Spring Rain (the blue). You may have seen the paper cut retelling of Tempest during her song "Open Your Eyes", where they where playing ball and it bounced to the ursa minor's cave, where Tempest subsequently lost her horn and earned a scar. Then, next time they where playing the ball, her unstable and explosive magic scared both of her friends and was replaced by an unnamed yellow unicorn, painting them in a really negative light. If you read the book Stormy Road of Canterlot, it retells many of that background, like Tempest's broken horn being the catalyst of her leaving Equestria, but both of her exes are portrayed in a FAR MORE positive light. Spoilers if you haven't read Stormy Road to Canterlot book:
  4. Chapter One Howling like a ferocious beast, the wind pulsed against the rocky cliff face. Protected from the worst of the winds by the cliff walls, the little town of Doneighgal was quiet, but cold. It was in this town that twins were born to a unicorn mare named Orchid Rain and a Earth pony stallion named Solar Storm. The older twin was a yellow unicorn filly with a purple and blue mane and tail. She was named Star Spirit. Her younger sister, named Thriving Lily, was a creamy white Earth pony with a light green and pink mane and tail. Their lives began happily and with great celebration from their extended family, which was practically the entire town. Solar Storm adored and was adored by Star Spirit, while Thriving Lily was the apple of her mother's eye. Star, as she was called by her friends, took an avid interest in astronomy and magic, using her magical skills to aid her in her studies of the skies. Eventually the unicorn filly, confident in her abilities as an astronomer, predicted a spectacular meteor shower the next night and told the entire town to be at the courtyard of the old fortress that stood roughly half a mile from the town about an hour after sunset. The next night, she was a nervous wreck. What if my prediction was wrong? she wondered. What will everypony think of me? She almost considered not going to the event, but if her prediction was correct, she'd miss out on something amazing. Eventually she swallowed her fear and trotted with her family to the selected location. It was the perfect location, as the whole thing was elevated above the land around it the walls and roof of the fortress had crumbled leaving a perfect view to almost every part of the horizon. Suddenly, as the last few ponies quieted down, the hour struck. Nothing was happening at first, but then Lily spotted it: dozens of colored beams of light shooting across the sky to the east. Everypony sat in complete awe as the light show flickered across the sky. Star was snapped back to reality by a gentle light near her and she turned her head to find a cutie mark on her flank: a silver telescope pointed towards a purple shooting star. A smile spread across her face as she turned her head back to the skies, filled with color and what seemed to be dancing stars. Let me know what I can improve upon; I want to practice my writing and get better so feedback would be much appreciated!
  5. I am ready and willing to help anypony who needs help to craft their backstory. I can help them go step by step, get ideas going, or even with your permission I can craft one up for you. I love writing and it is very fun to come up with something absolutely unique for each pony. I only have one OC as of right now because I feel like she is me and I am her. lol. Take a look at my OC and if you like my writing style and want some feedback, help constructing an outline or whatever you need help with, either comment here or send me a PM.

  6. This is a short backstory about my ponysonas Laurel and Chaos it talks a little bit about Laurel and then moves onto how she became Chaos its not overly detailed just a simple backstory on them. MY PONYSONAS LAUREL & CHAOS Hello everyone my name is well I'm not going to give out my real name sillies so you may call me Laurel I'm a twinkle eyed pegasus see my eyes twinkle o wait you can't see me oopsie. Now this is a little backstory about myself and well Chaos my other side we are a part of each other, but yet so different. Now your all probably wondering where I came from, what my childhood was like etc etc, but I'm not going to really talk about it nothing interesting really I was bullied growing up and barely had any friends so see nothing interesting. Now I did age with no cutie mark yup that's right I never did get my cutie mark as a filly I got it well when I became Chaos, yup another shocker well not really since I put it up there that Chaos is a part of me well she is me and I am her. Now your probably wondering about Chaos and how I became her well I suppose I could tell you. It all began when I wanted to escape I just never fit well into society and was always judged I got tired of their judging eyes and the words they spoke so I ran not sure where I was going and what was to happen once I arrived. I suppose I did not really care growing up being bullied I just finally got fed up with it my friends always turned on me, abandoned me or stabbed me in the back and society did the same I just had to face it that I would never be accepted so I did, but in return I lost my trust for everyone. Now I was not bullied for my twinkle eyes some found them beautiful and others interesting, but to make it short I was bullied for having a brain, not following what others did and the for my point of views I saw things differently then they did and I never gave into peer pressure I did not want to be changed in order to fit in so I chose to remain an outcast instead of joining society's zombie group. With that being said I did not want to be found nor did I want to take my life so instead I fell into a hole that was not visible to the eyes I should have watched where I was going, but hey what fun would that be? I was not harmed in the fall, but looking around I was surrounded in darkness so of course I was unable to see being a unicorn would have been helpful at that time, but I lacked a horn, so I did the only thing I could I walked into the darkness. Unable to see anything I felt around with my wings thinking maybe I could find something of use or learn about where I was, now it did not take me long to find what made me into Chaos it was a book which of course I knocked over causing it to fall on me. I thought nothing of it at first I just flew out with it to check it out which it did have a lock, but it disintegrated so to me it was just a useless old damaged book boy was I wrong upon opening it I was engulfed in darkness and once my vision came back into focus I was different. I felt the same, but my body was changed my tan coat became gold, my once brown gem eyes became red and gold gems, but the biggest change was I became an alicorn plus I got my cutie mark such an exciting time. Now I did not remain as this new pony I did change back to my old pegasus self and of course I kept the book with me I also remembered everything from when I changed. It did confuse me at first, but I soon learned to love it I accepted that I was Chaos and Chaos was me it was an amazing feeling sure she did create havoc time to time, but I accepted that we were different even though we were the same pony. I suppose I'll end it there not much more to say about myself really that's pretty much me and how I became Chaos.

    My OC needs a backstory

    Hello Everypony my name is Playful Noon, I have a OC that doesn't have a backstory yet but has everything else, I really appreciate the help.
  8. I have an OC called The Mare. Thats all she goes by. Her cutie mark is this: Not sure if it would look good with the circle or without it, I am thinking there could be colors within the shapes but I have no clue. This is what she looks like, bust only by LaptopDJ Her personality is rather brash, independent, and stubborn. She likes to do what she wants to do. I need help with a backstory, all I have is that she left some town or city for a better life and went to the Crystal Empire.

    Spike's Family/Origin

    I haven't seen any threads about this or heard anyone bring it up, but something that bothers me is that where Spike came from is never addressed. We see Twilight hatch him from his egg in Cutie Mark Chronicles, but how did the egg end up in Canterlot? In Dragon Quest, Twilight says that very little is known about dragons, so it can be assumed that they don't come across dragon eggs very often. Why would they essentially give away this egg- as far as we know, the only one of its kind ever possessed by ponies- as part of Twilight's test? For that matter, how did they know that it would be an appropriate test to have her use magic to hatch the egg? More importantly, how did they come across the egg to begin with, and why does Spike seem to have no connection to his family? In Winter Wrap-up he mentions "Mommy", but no-one we've seen, other than Twilight (who he specifically says isn't "mommy") could fit that role. Anyway, my question is where do you think Spike came from and what happened to his family?

    Big Macintosh's cutiemark?

  11. The most important part of a backstory is it's curve. A story curve is defined by the ups and downs in a backstory. A backstory can start anywhere on the plane. However, it's the ups and downs that matter. The most difficult position you can put yourself is have your curve start in a high position. You will then have to come up with some way to bring that curve down. For instance, if your OC was born in a rich family and all of that, the usual route is the fire, family tragedy or natural disaster, which all three are quite cliche and overused. On the other hand, starting at rock bottom has potential to make a good OC. However, the ascension from rock bottom can't be too quick. You can't have your OC born to the poorest of families, and all of a sudden one day he becomes one of the richest ponies ever. First off, that's cliche as well and secondly, it'll make your OC a Mary Sue due to the fact that the rise from rags to riches was too quick and there was lack of development. Starting from rock bottom can be a good thing, because you can then develop your character. Finally, starting at a neutral point is a great starting point. You have the freedom to go up or down. Just make sure you balance the ups and the downs and keep them within reasonable range so you can recover from a down smoothly, and not end up like a Mary Sue. Still here? I can evaluate your story from the curve's point of view. I'll give you pointers on the following The point where you start (Neutral, Down, Up) The direction you take (Up to down, Down to up, etc.) Where you finish Be ready, I'll completely dissect your story from top to bottom to give it the best critique and evaluation. Don't be discouraged if I give you a load of things to work on/change. You can always come back for me to evaluate it again when you've finished your editing/changes.

    SS Headcanons

    [Warning: Bad English!!!] For months now, I wanted to write a fanfacion about Sunset Shimmer's past. But since I will probably never acutally write it because of...reasons, I decided to write at least my headcanons down, which would have been part of the story. Enjoy! :I Since Sunset mentioned that she has a family, but not a close realtion to them in the Equestria Girls Holiday Speacial (IDW comic), I think that her behavior portrayed in the first movie and „The Fall of Sunset Shimmer“ was a result of her parents not carring about her and/or pushing her down as a filly. When Sunset came to the human world she lived on the streets before Principal Celestia took her in and later helped her to get a job and an own apartment. Principal Celestia took Sunset in, because she reminded her of Luna, who was a „rebel“ when she was a teenager. (Since Nigmare Moon probably never happend in the human world, I think that is the closest thing to her we can get.) It was not Flash Sentry who taught Sunset how to play guitar, but Vice principal Luna during the time Sunset was living with Principal Celestia. The jacket Sunset was wearing in the first movie, was also the jacket Vice principal Luna has worn as a teenager. After Sunset moved in her apartment, the principals were still inviting her to dinner, but at time passed by the visits became less and less. Sunset used to play guitar when she needed to calm down or felt homesick. Flash became interested in Sunset because he heard her playing. Since Sunset was only using Flash due to popularity, she was only close to him during school time. In her free time and especially at the end of their relationship, she pretended often to be busy, so that she did not need to spent more time with him than necessary. (They were a couple for 2 to 3 months.) Because Sunset was never pure evil, she still felt at least a little bit bad for using Flash and during the realtionship with him she felt more uncomfortable than anything. Sunset knew where Twilight's room were and how her crown looked like, because she went through the portal already a few hours before during the same day. Sunset's plan of stealing Twilight's crown was never well thought through, but rather a rash reaction of her realizing that Princess Celestia had replaced her. After she stole the crown she had no idea what she was going to do with it. The plan of taking over Equestira was a result of her being corrupted by the crown and it was also not well thought through. Sunset had such a extrem personality change because she lost every she had built and because realized that became similar to her parents, something that she never wanted to become. Since it is confirmed that 1 moon = 1 month and that the portal opens every 30 moons (what would be 2,5 years), I think that Sunset lives in the human world for at least 5 to 7,5 years. The principals know that Sunset is a little bit older than the rest of the students. I also posted the whole thing on tumblr.
  13. Is there anything in canon/B-canon (comics, Journal of the Two Sisters, etc.) that contradicts the idea? It seems odd that neither Celestia or Luna have ever been married, that we can see, and if any stallion were worthy of marrying an alicorn, it would be the greatest wizard in Equestrian history. Maybe he was the reason Celestia started the School for Gifted Unicorns in the first place.

    Does anyone know what the name of Starlight Glimmer's hometown was called? I mean does it have a name? Also who are Starlight's parents?
  15. Brianna Changeling

    Brianna's Backstory

    Hello! My name's Brianna. Brianna Fang Lash. And this is my story. Brianna the Changeling would hatch today. It had been months since the Queen laid them. And now, every single Changeling of Chrysalis's hive would be born. They all hatched at the same time, crawling out of their green, transparent eggs, and were picked by one guard each, and carried into a nest room. Brianna looked at all her siblings. They all looked the same. But she didn't care. She was a baby. 2 YEARS LATER "Mommy, why am I in here? I thought that we were just going to sleep all day." Chrysalis chuckled silently. "No, Brianna, we're not going to sleep all day. We're going to do something much more fun. You're going to learn how to use your powers." Brianna looked shocked. "Powers? What powers?" "Brianna, you were born with magic. It's just that you couldn't handle it, you were too young. So I never showed you. Until now." "What can I do?" "First, Brianna, we'll start simple. Try to lift this pebble." Brianna tried. Nothing. She tried again. Nothing. But the third time, she felt something. It was a green aura. The green aura soon engulfed the pebble. It lifted. 7 YEARS LATER That day should've been perfect. It was the Canterlot Wedding. Everything was going so smoothly. Then, a rouge Changeling cast a spell on Brianna's mother to make her foolishly reveal her entire plan, and even remove her disguise. After that, everyone starved. The only food they had was from a few loveless animals. After the wedding, Brianna hated Twilight and the rest of the royals for making them go through the pain. And what did the ponies do? They called THEM the monsters. The ponies starved them, killed most, and called THEM the monsters. They came back next winter. Only to be sent back. But this time, they had enough food for months. 8 YEARS LATER Brianna yawned. Her wings buzzed as she stretched inside her cocoon and opened it with magic. She was ready for a new day. Equestria would be hers. ( hope you guys liked it! this is my first story on the forums! :3) (I did not include how she got her red scarf because It's rather simple. It was given to her whilst in the form of a pony)
  16. In the Anime series One Piece, who has the saddest Backstory? The Anime, not the Manga. I think it's Robin. I think that Robin has the saddest backstory in One Piece. Either hers, or Brook's. What about you?
  17. Hello! I'm here cause I want to ask for a review on my OC, Night Frost. Night frost is a female bat pony with a talent for taming mythical creatures, she is also the very first my little pony oc I made. I want honest critique since I want Night to be the best she can be. (Base was used for the body but everything else was by me) Anyways here's her personality and backstory, please note that I will be wording them both better later. Born in Manehatten to two bat pony parents (one pure, one half pegasus), she was bullied for being 'different and a blank flank'. So Night Frost's parents decided to move to Ponyville after hearing how friendly it was, however the only house available was near the everfree forest. They at first chose to wait for a new house to be built but in the end moved in when informed that monsters usually don't go near the edge, it was also cheap and they could move in straight away. One night, Night heard cries for help coming from the everfree, curious, fearful but drawn to the sound she wandered into the forest searching for the source. A timber wolf stuck at the bottom of a crevice was what met her, Night was eventually able to get it out by causing a landslide. The wolf ran free not bothering to even look at her but that was when she realised she was lost. Night Frost wandered the forest crying and calling to her parents, but then she was suddenly attacked by a manticore, it let out a roar and she could understand it! Fuelled by adrenaline Night bucked the manticore in the face and scolded it, she then strictly but gently ordered the manticore to take her to Ponyville, it did and that was when she earned her cutie mark and found her talent, taming mythical creatures. When she was 14 she was awarded with the job and title of monster controller, Nights parents moved out of the house and gave it to her for job convenience. Rash, likes making people laugh but becomes withdrawn with people she doesn't know, Night loves thrill rides but refuses to do anything that will risk her life for things that are 'just because it's fun'. She enjoys reading every now and then and at times can be a couch potato. Night can be very cautious and sometimes wimps out of things if they scare her. She cares deeply for her friends and hates to betray them. Night almost never cries from pain, just an odd little thing about her. Night can also be very forceful without realising and gets irritated easily if someone constantly pushes her into doing something. She sometimes gets bouts of depression but Night pushes those thoughts and feelings down as quickly as they come up. Night usually only gets 'it' when she has nothing to do or is alone. She knows she should get help but she can't, she's afraid to. That's about it please leave you thoughts down below! If you were wondering about the depression thing, I don't have depression I added it in there because I thought it would make Night Frost more interesting. Honestly I wasn't sure if I should add it in but it's nothing reallt serious so I thought it would be fine ^^;

    Advice on Pony Backgrounds?

    Hi there! So my little sister has recently come to adore everything MLP, which is great- I wasn't exactly encouraged to engage with it or similar kinds of franchise when I was younger, so I guess it's interesting and entertaining for me when she shows me all these songs and characters. I love seeing how happy it makes her! The thing is, she's made me a... pony-sona, or something (worth mentioning here that I'm very new to both forums and MLP, sorry in advance for the mistakes I will make!) called Glitter Hugs, with a storyline and everything (I am apparently an Element of Protection- though I gather that's frowned upon in OCs- and study under Princess Cadence, which suits me well) and I would like to return the favour. Being of an artistic persuasion, I drew her as an Equestria Girl (yes, she showed me the first two movies- I rather liked the art style, but not some of the outfits!) but now would like to give her in return a pony-sona with a backstory and history in Equestria as she has done for me. I don't feel that I know enough about the Ponyverse or their customs and culture to properly construct her a realistic and fun alter ego. I adore world building and character design, and so would like to do this properly! It seems like a great universe to create within. So, if anyone would be willing to help a big sister out and give me a bit of information on things like how ponies might pass through their society as they grow up and how their talents affect them, as well as how common unicorns/Pegasi/allicorns and Magic are. It would be so much appreciated. I've been reading threads on this forum which has been very informative, but more specific information would be wonderful. tl;dr (do you do that on here?) big sister would like to understand the world and fundamental rules of the MLPverse before embarking upon pony design. Thank you in advance, I look forward to finding out more! ^-^
  19. Well I couldn't think of a better title for this post. Anyway, what are some of the darkest headcanons you've come across when it comes to the Mane 6's backstories? With that said- I'm looking for stuff that's not too outlandish and just out of nowhere. I bring it up because I found this comic giving a glimpse of Fluttershy's past- Which I never really put much thought into before seeing it. When I saw it I was like all at the same time In my opinion, it's scary how well it seems to fit. I think it helps explain why: she's a nervous wreck all the time she's always so worried about upsetting anyone she can just fall out of the sky one day and just stay there in Ponyviille forever after we don't hear anything about her family Also It makes Putting Your Hoof Down seem less "out there"... It could go along with the end of Dragonshy too. Now remember this is just a discussion about headcanons you think fit well, maybe too well. I just thought the comic had an interesting perspective about Fluttershy possibly being raised in a household with a father who was abusive toward her mother.
  20. Okay, a disclaimer first and foremost. The tags pretty much sums up what this is all about. I'm kinda in a rut about a new OC I've been trying to develop and instead of the usual approach of just thinking about events to place here and there, it's been decided that I would write a fan fic about a pivotal moment in the character's life. Whatever I get out of writing this will ultimately be incorporated in the character's backstory. So let's see where this takes us... Warning; it does get a little dark and I don't mean it literally. Dark enough to warrant a Dark prefix? I guess not. Why? Suicide is a topic that gets touched on. Prologue: That Fateful Night The night was dark and quiet. Few of the light of stars above made it past the cloudy sky and even fewer got past the trees. Barely audible were the sounds of trotting made by an earth pony trotting along this path. This pony was carrying a stick with a lit lantern at the end. From the light, it could be seen that this pony was a stallion with a dull citric yellow coat, his long mane and tail a pale yellow color and he appeared to be wearing a lemon green tunic that matched the color of his eyes. His eyes told of melancholy. Up ahead there was a bridge connecting both ends of a gorge. His gaze was lowered as the bridge was coming into view but he kept trotting along the path. Finally he had reached the bridge and had crossed it up to about halfway. He then turned his attention along the gorge and beheld how this chasm separates two sides of the forest between the city of Tall Tale and the Smokey Mountain. The dark night made it impossible to see the bottom of the chasm. The pony then blew out the lantern, welcoming darkness’ embrace. Shortly after, sniffling could be heard, followed by brief, random but dulled howls. Minutes pass before these sounds cease. A brief gust made the forest give a heavy and turbulent hiss and it kept on for about a minute. “I guess that’s that,” the citrus-colored pony uttered. Out of nowhere a twinkle came from further ahead into the forest. All was quiet; no creaking of the wood of the bridge, no rustling leaves from the trees. A sigh was uttered in the darkness. An unknown voice pierced the silence. "Hello? Is anypony there?" Silence resumed. "Who's there...?" said the citrus colored pony in a despaired voice. Suddenly a light shone on the citrus pony, overwhelming his eyes. "I-I don't know what you are but if you want to eat me... I won't stop you..." the earth pony said. "What are you talking about?" the other voice responded. As the light got closer to the earth pony and his eyes started to adjust to the light, it could be seen that this other entity was a unicorn. This unicorn was a stallion that had a pale violet coat with a blue but scruffy mane and tail with eyes to match. His cutie mark were two fishes swinning in opposite directions with water appearing to ripple between them. "You're... not a monster..." the earth pony let out sorrowfully. "Last I checked I wasn't," responded the unicorn and continued; "but more importantly, what are you doing here and what were you planning to do?" he asked confrontationally. The earth pony began to sob which made it impossible for him to speak. He attempted to run off but the unicorn used his magic to lift him up just slightly into the air, making it impossible for the earth pony to run off. "I'm not letting you off until I get an answer. Just calm yourself down and I'll listen," the unicorn said. After some time, the earth pony began to settle down just enough for him to speak. "I-I want to d-die. I-I d-don't want to l-live an-anymore." "But why?!" he asked baffled but very concerned. His tone made the earth pony cringe. "You barely look old enough to be an adult. Just how old are you?" "N-nineteen..." the earth pony answered. "Nineteen... Why cut your life so short? There is so much more to life than anypony your age could not possibly have experienced!" The earth pony went silent and could not respond. He was let out of the lifting spell and gently brought to the ground. "Listen," said the unicorn in a candid voice, "It's going to rain soon and we better find shelter. Did you feel the droplets too? Please come with me," he asked. The earth pony nodded in response and followed the unicorn. By a cul de sac somewhere in the forest stood a cabin. It was really pouring down. Inside were the two ponies with their lanterns lighting the inside of the cabin. The unicorn was drying himself off with a piece of cloth. He then started; "how impolite of me to not introduce myself. My name is Snow Perch. I live in these woods as a hermit. What's your name, friend?" The earth pony looked at the unicorn bemusedly yet sad. Friend? "Um... My name is Morning Solitude but most ponies call me Sully," he answered. "Morning Solitude. It's a beautiful name that makes me think of pleasant things," said Snow Perch. "Sully," he addressed, "you should take that tunic off. It's soaked," he advised. "I, uh, don't need to. Yeah, it's alright, it isn't so bad. I'm sure it'll be dry by the time it's morning," he answered and then smiled nervously. Snow Perch, looking unamused clearly saw through that obvious lie. "You're going to get sick if you don't take that off," said Snow Perch. "I, uh... I don't take my clothes off to strangers," replied Sully nervously. Snow Perch facehoofed when he heard that. "Of all the desperate answers... Look, I don't know what is it you're hiding but come on, just what are you so afraid of?" Sully sighed and whimpered. Snow Perch looked at Sully puzzled. Sully raised his voice and said "fine! It's not like I haven't been through this before!" He turned to his side and lifted the tunic to expose his flank. Snow Perch had a look of realization in his eyes. "A blank flank," he said in a bewildered voice. "I see now... Is that why you wanted to end your life?" he asked. "If only that was the most of my problems," Sully answered. "It's okay," said Snow Perch, approaching Sully and placed his hoof on Sully's shoulder. "I promise to listen to whatever you have to say. Is it alright?" asked Snow Perch in a reassuring manner. Morning Solitude nodded his head. "Mhm," he let out. "But first you need to take that tunic off," Snow Perch responded cheekily. --- "I am the youngest of three siblings. My father is chief engineer at the local wine production facility so he's quite respected. My mother works as a manager at that same plant. Considering the corporate hierarchy they're placed in, I'd say I'm born in a privileged family..." Sully started. "I see. Please continue," Snow Perch replied. "Well... At first, it seemed like I excelled in whatever it is I tried my hooves in. Fencing, archery, various other sports, science and math... Teachers and trainers have commented on how quickly I learn, how gifted I am and my parents were always proud of me when they hear about it. But seemingly no matter how good I get, my cutie mark never showed up and when it really matters, I always fall just short. It's like I'm always second best at everything." "So, you were in a lot of competitions then." "That's right." "But you said your parents are proud of you, right?" "Were proud of me... At first, all those silver medals and trophies seemed like I did have something in me but that it was never quite enough. I know this is going to sound selfish but I just feel so overshadowed every time I got beaten AND my opponent gets their cutie mark. If it was just me coming in second I would have been fine with it. The thing is, there'd be a grand celebration for my opponent winning first place and getting his cutie mark and all but it just seems like people forget that I exist. It's happened more than once," said Sully with his head low. "Actually, that's understandable," rebutted Snow Perch. "As social creatures, we do have a need to feel acknowledged so please don't feel ashamed to talk about these sorts of things." Sully scratched his head and got his head back up. "Of course, there's also the thing with me being a blank flank. Everypony thinks less of me because of it. Especially at my age. Most ponies get their cutie marks before or at the latest, just when hitting puberty. But what really got to me was how my parents have been acting around me recently. They don't pay as much attention to me like they used to and I'm too afraid to talk about it," explained Sully. "If you ask me, I think it'd be a good idea to bring this up to them. Let them know how you are feeling," commented Snow Perch. "If only that had worked..." said Sully in a dreadful tone. "Oh... But what happened?" asked Snow Perch. "Whenever I brought this up to either of my parents, they would outright dismiss it as me just being paranoid or imagining things and to just get over it. My mom would lecture me on how I'm not lesser to anyone and my father would just joke about it. When I called out my mother on her example not matching her words, she got pretty furious at me. After that I figured that nobody wants to hear about what I feel." "But don't you have any close friends, Sully?" "Firends...?" he asked sarcastically. "Just like with my parents, they pretty much lost interest in me. I guess having a blank flank around them just seemed to cramp their style," he said very cynically. "Well, you do have a good understanding of what's upsetting you, at least," said Snow Perch. "If only I knew what to do about it though. That's the thing... I'm just trapped..." Sully said, lowering his head again in despair. He raised it back up when Snow Perch began to talk. "Don't fret. We can talk some more in the morning and I'm sure your parents will be worried about you," said Snow Perch optimistically. Sully lowered his head again, looking cynical. "Yeah. You never know you had something until you lost it." "Please," responded Snow Perch. "You can't go on thinking like that. You shouldn't. Things may seem bleak now but if you give up, if you stop trying, that's the surest way to stay stuck!" "I guess," sully replied non-chalantly. "Tell you what, I'll accompany you on your way back home and we could perhaps spend some time at your place," suggested Snow Perch. "I don't know," responded Sully. "You look rather unkempt. I mean... you really do look like a hermit." "I'll be sure to wash up better at the spring then. Problem solved,” he answered confidently. "If you say so..." remarked Sully with doubt in his eyes.

    I honestly have no idea as to how and what my OC/Ponysona's backstory should be (for the Character Database for Role-plays and the such). I would appreciate the help for building a backstory for my OC. The possibilities as to what my OC's backstory could be is endless and I really could use your assistance. Here is the very basic details of my OC/Ponysona: http://mlpforums.com/topic/74033-post-your-oc/?p=3471556 Now I need your guy's help to build a backstory out of it. Thank you so much for your attention.
  23. Sweetheart’s backstory She is a half unicorn, half earth pony. Her mother lived in a village with other earth ponies harvesting crops. Her father was a unicorn whom was a well-established figure and knowledgeable librarian in a town of unicorns. One day the two ponies met in the market place as items were exchanged. Their eyes meet across a crowd they couldn’t help but to take interest in each other, it was a sense that they knew each other already. They walked through the crowd and hid in the unicorns empty libabry.it was love they had seen in each other’s eyes that day; they wanted to live together forever. However their love was forbidden as they were an earth pony and a unicorn. The earth pony realised after a few months of being secretly together, that she was pregnant with a foal. They didn’t know whether the foal was going to be a earth pony or unicorn so they moved to the outskirts of the earth pony village; so their unborn foal could be raised comfortable; when sweetheart was born it was discovered that she was a unicorn. Sweetheart was named so as when she was a tiny foal she was always gentle and caring. She was given a plush pony as her new-born toy and she would cuddle it gently and would never drop it always making sure it was with her. Being a unicorn she wasn’t allowed to go to the village, instead she would be out in her parent’s apple orchard playing and being with her father. He tried to teach her magic spell but Sweetheart had always found it more difficult. (Not typical of a unicorn of her age) She would spend many days playing hide and seek with her father. She loved counting stars at night and running around. As Sweetheart got older she became a great apple-bucker however she magic was still delayed and was weak. She wanted to meet other ponies so badly but she knew how the earth ponies would react. She was half earth pony, half unicorn and others would be sickened by her. One day however went she was a teenager; she left her home to see other ponies in the village. The earth ponies didn’t speak to her; a pony by the name of Rose Petals even said she was a freak of nature and a crowd corralled of angry earth ponies enclosed her. They were ashamed of her presence. “Go lived with your own kind”. “Why don’t you go and take your useless magic with you”. Sweetheart began crying unable to move until a flash of red light. It was her magic overpowering her; she began rampaging out of control. Her mother saw her and tried to comfort her. It didn’t work. It wasn’t until she ran out of energy did she stop. She was carried home by her mother and father as she fell unconscious. After the incident Sweetheart changed; she became angrier and impatient with others unless they proved them genuineness to her. She tried so hard to trust others again but she felt that ponies would always judge her if they found out her secret (her being half earth pony, half unicorn). One day she sees Moonstar Cocoa in her orchard and she panics; Moonstar convinces Sweetheart to come with her and Dusty to a life where she can be herself and learn about the world as they find Dusty’s destiny and to build a new life where as races can life together in harmony. Adventures begin soon…. also the story of how she got her cutie mark will be revealed soon ......
  24. Why I made this topic: I made this topic so that people could freely come and tell the community how their OC came to be. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ My OC's back-story: As the brother of Rainbow Dash, FlaringBlade (my OC) thought it was his duty to protect Cloudsdale from evil! Though he knew it would be difficult but he managed to persevere. After the defeat of Tirek, The Wonder Bolts mysteriously went missing with out a trace! No one wondered why, that is until Rainbow Dash started asking questions! Rainbow Dash was determined to find them. She had no luck until one day. There was mention of them at the Crystal Empire! She was ecstatic!!! She went to look for FlaringBlade, as he was the only one who would listen. She told him the entire story. They set off immediately. When they got there. All they could see was a bright light. But what was it?! They waited for their eyes to adjust. Finally it happened. It was none other than Queen Chrysalis! Why was she there? FlaringBlade wondered. She held the Wonder Bolts hostage after their visit to Princess Cadance & Shining Armour! Rainbow Dash said "It's obvious, why you're here Chrysalis. It's to take the Crystal Empire for yourself! Isn't it?!" "Rainbow Dash what a pleasure it is to see you again. Oh and you would have been proud of that Soarin boy he put up quiet a fight." Chrysalis laughed, FlaringBlade turned towards Rainbow Dash. He could see it the pure rage. Just by looking in to her eyes. FlaringBlade tried to tell Rainbow Dash it wasn't worth it but he was scared stiff. All he could do was stand there and watch. As the rage built up. Until... It happened. Rainbow Dash flew full speed towards Chrysalis! All FlaringBlade saw was a rainbow going towards Chrysalis. Suddenly! FlaringBlade hit the ground. As he opened his eyes. All he could see was... Rainbow Dash on the floor!!! He rushed toward her hoping she was alright! He cried as Chrysalis said 'What a waste.' What they didn't know was Rainbow Dash was only unconscious At that single moment. It became clear. He knew what he had to do. He needed to stop Chrysalis once and for all! He knew what that meant. He was scared and excited! He flew towards her so quickly and suddenly! Chrysalis started firing at FlaringBlade! He came to a sudden stop after seeing her struggle so much. She fired at him again! Only this time he stood still and she missed. FlaringBlade started to fly, again he stopped. She fired once more and she missed again! FlaringBlade thought to himself... He finally understood what was happening. At that moment he laughed and Chrysalis stopped! The room went quiet... Suddenly! a bright light FlaringBlade was holding a winged shield and a flaming sword! Chrysalis asked 'How did you do that?!' He flew full speed towards Chrysalis! She fired and hit the shield, the attack backfired and destroyed Chrysalis' horn. She fell to the ground. FlaringBlade said one thing and one thing only. 'Your time here is through Chrysalis!' He swung the sword. At that moment Chrysalis let out a blood curdling scream... She was no more! Rainbow Dash was now awake. FlaringBlade sprinted towards her and helped her up. They went looking through the castle. The two found Princess Cadance close to death in the throne room. They soon found Shining Armour! He told them that they would find the Wonder Bolts in the castle dungeon. It took forever but finally they found them. Rainbow Dash flew towards Soarin and freed him. FlaringBlade freed the others. The Wonder Bolts complimented FlaringBlade on his cutie mark. He said "What cutie mark?" then he looked at his flank, he let out tears of joy as he shouted "I have a cutie mark!!!"

    Tips on writing OC backstories?

    As the title would suggest, I'm looking to develop the backstory of my OCs. I am worried about not being taken seriously when joining some RPs. Heck, I was even told once that my OCs "lack any sort of character development". And that's the story of how my self-esteem was irreparably shattered... So, how do you think up a backstory? I ask this so that I may create richer characters and become more well-known amongst the community. Thank you for your time.
