    What's this webcomic?

    A while ago (a year or so?) I stumbled upon an interesting fan webcomic on Deviantart. It was posted in Adobe Flash. IIRC the panels were animated (in the sense they were floating onto the page, not that the characters were animated), and also one submission was a few pages long (Flash; click an arrow to flip pages), tho not 100% certain. The art quality was high and the author posted a whole series of such submissions. Didnt read it at that time; I just bookmarked it, so that Id go back there at some point in the future and see if its a worthy read or not. Then my HDD started freaking clicking and I lost quite a lot of data... including that bookmark. Now since they're going to kill flash quite soon AFAIK... I guess if Id like to check this comic... Id better do this sooner than later. But I cant find it! Does anyone have any idea where it might be? Yes, my description seems vague, but Ill argue its not. I found few Flash comics at DA at all... and not even one with implemented paging nor floating panels. It's fun that even though I didnt read it, Im almost positive Id recognize it the moment Id see it.
  2. In the MLP movie during the scene in the desert Pinkie picks up a skull with a beak, and in Cupcakes Pinkie brings out a skull with a very defining factor... a beak. Is that a reference or just a coincidence?
  3. Comedy often trumps drama, but I'm not very funny, so I often resort to the abstract, especially when it delves deep into the subconscious. I've always been interested in the non-so-familiar. The unknown and hidden. A teacher once said, 'The universe is both hidden and manifest...'. And so I suppose my emphasis is to explore the gradient from the known to unknown. A risky endeavor I know, but I can hardly help how my mind falls into the groove of such an approach. Every time I sit down to write an idea, I fumble upon abstractions and imagery that pop seemingly out of nowhere. So I paint them in and hope for the best. Unfortunately, my attempts at art are often very unsatisfactory, but hey, I try. Today, I'd like to decode a post I made for the MLPF World Cup. This is an exceedingly fun event. Reading the comics and memes is great, and interacting with other fans makes the experience even more immersive. I stepped off the beaten path, as usual, and posted a rather cryptic, and emotional, skit of Nightmare Moon entering the 'stage' of the competition. The backdrop is a Dream Realm, somehow concocted by Discord, and in an rather specious way, controlled by 'Dark Powers'. Grogar has become center stage with these Dark Powers, and his influence is increasing as the competition intensifies. Dreams are no small matter in our experience in this life. They can often dictate how we live and perceive the world around us. I cannot disregard the impact of the subconscious on my own life, and so it comes natural for me to communicate the unusual and the strange...that is, with respect to our common experience. Life doesn't really have an 'ordinary experience' though. It is widely varied. I'd like to think we negotiate an ordinary experience, such as language, to remain connected to others. Loneliness should never be the result of a fulfilled life, and so exploration and adventure are at the top of our lists of things to do, whether we actually do them or not. But an adventure is necessarily an journey into the unknown, and if it is unknown, how can it be an ordinary experience? Anyway, I will translate the below short story to fill in the blanks for those that may be interested. Ready for an adventure? ‘We're both the night, thou sayest! Fine, mine lief! I am the night which brings serenity of mind and rest for mortal body. I am mother night, which takes away their pain, their burdens, their fear, anger, sorrows! I cuddle softly them, whispering advice. WHICH NIGHT ART THOU?! Who are thy children, when eternal cold, thou planned to bring, would kill them?’ – Princess Luna This was part of an argument between Nightmare Moon and Princess Luna shortly after they'd met in the Dream, RPed by yours truly and @Alexshy. Although Alexshy has a very open and happy-go-lucky personality, and this candor readily translates into her Princess Luna's personality, we were able to bring out some rather serious, um, dialog. The entire exchange turned out very well. The excerpt above introduces the main idea - what is the true role and nature of Nightmare Moon and Princess Luna? Are they one and the same, or some tangible duality? As we will see later, Nightmare Moon insists their power comes from the Night, as if the Night itself is an entity. Nightmare Moon is completely devoted to silence, the vastness of darkness, and the unknown reaches of its power. This silence and emptiness enables her existence, subtracted from the haunting abuse of Celestia. Every time she meets with the 'ordinary world', she is starkly reminded of the emotional pain, and ultimate death, of being separated from her sister, as well as her beloved subjects. Nightmare Moon is therefore, a sort of living memory of Luna's most private pain. She is the manifestation of Luna's true power. So while Nightmare Moon has a selfish objective, she truly holds everything that Luna is capable of. And so Princess Luna's approach was to show Nightmare Moon that, even with all her power, her objective would never work. That without some moral compass, she would ultimately destroy what she desires most. Nightmare Moon swooped down and landed atop the grassy ridge with a proud clatter. Dry leaves rustled helplessly around her from the sudden impact, silently settling about the brush and tall grasses. Pumping her wings irritably, the turbulence scattered the loose forest debris around her, pushing it into the shadows. The evening sun peered from behind the mountains, bathing the town below in orange and red. Shadows stretched from the high peaks, concealing large swaths of land within their long and slender darkness. The arrival of Nightmare Moon into the fray. She lands atop a ridge to show her dominion of the space. The dispersal of the forest debris indicates her disdain for the lesser things around her, pushing the formed into the formless (the shadows). The stretching darkness of the mountains is metaphor of her objective - her immutable power will overcome the land. After days of verbal tussle with Princess Luna, it was time to settle her unfulfilled questions with the residents of Ponyville. The Princess hid away, horrified that her true self had become manifest, independent. She would not accept Nightmare’s existence. She would not let her in, leaving Nightmare alone. Nightmare’s only bond with the living had shunned her, denying any chance of life beyond this endless Dream. Picking on Ponyville is her version of 'beat the grass the reveal the snakes'. Since Luna rejected her, then she would attack what The Princess covets - her subjects. ‘Night cometh before the day, as birth before life. Night cometh after day, as life into death. Darkness. It matters not what ye shall call it, my spirit testifies the Night is Eternal, for what cometh before and after hath no boundary.’ Nightmare reminds herself why she is here. The recent pain of Luna's rejection must be cast aside...it must be put away and discarded. This is the place where it all began. Her escape from solitude long ago. And now, she had returned again, thanks to the bleeding Dream born of the impish might of Discord. Celestia will finally pay for her transgressions. As for the rest, those blinded by the sun, they will see true power and justice. I believe that if Nightmare Moon did come back, she would certainly remember this 'hail mary' from Twilight Sparkle. This heroic charge changed the destiny of Equestria and snatched away Nightmare's chance to correct what she believed was the real problem, Celestia's rule. Nightmare easily correlates the places (Ponyville and it's surrounding areas), Celestia and Twilight as a singular united force against her. Slowly she walked to the rocky edge, legs quivering with intense frustration. Sorrow welled up within the void of her heart, clawing and gnawing at her insides, pounding against her armor with relentless hollow pain across her skin as she recalled her reply to the Princess... ‘Words...mere words that cannot hold the truth of our destiny! You holdeth not the power you speak, it belongs to the Night which you deny. Nightmare Moon believes that Luna's moral compass and tendency to compromise is a denial of her real power. This contrasts with Luna's current beliefs, in that her power as a Princess and Alicorn is secondary to her relationships and values. Behold your Children who honor not your compromise with the elite and haughty, but in the mystery of our strength! Even while imprisoned thus, they wept for our return. It was only the deceptive meddling with the Tree, which thou had broken with thy True Self! Do you not remember that day when you set yourself free! Your tears dried by your might, your heart healed and made whole. Your vision ever sharp and penetrating into the meaning of all things. Nightmare Moon embraces the idea that the ponies would accept her easily without the influence of Celestia (Behold your Children...). She goes on to remind Luna of that fateful day when she had cracked the dais in the throne room, an expression of divorce from Celestia's authority, and shattered the stained glass window which pictured the Tree of Harmony. Nightmare identifies intimately with this anger as ultimate liberation. It was the moon that eclipsed the cutting rays of despicable jealousy and insult! You defeated her! Only then did you command respect, only then did Equestria see their princess of glory and power! The power of an alicorn princess is frightening indeed. I believe this is why Celestia and Luna often hold themselves back. Power is very enticing, but when it is unleashed, things can change very rapidly in Equestria, sometimes for the worst. Nightmare Moon reminds Luna of the feelings she felt while being feared, and ultimately honored, when she had liberated her power into the world. All the while you see your precious subjects suffer under Tirek, Discord, and all the dismal tyrants who seek not only to rule, but to quench their fear... of you! This was interesting. Nightmare Moon believes she is the most potent power in Equestria, likely due to the sentence that she received, and the power it required to accomplish. not only do the tyrants seek power over ponies, but the power to resist Nightmare Moon as well. There is cruelty in punishment, yes. But it needn't persist, dear beautiful and dreadful spirit. For how long will you be defeated over and over again, while the Elements of Harmony laugh at your dwindling status? For what can you bequeath? Thine hour is coming, when your subjects turn on you in preference for the lesser. Turn to me. If only for a little while, that you may be reminded how your heart beats.’ Nightmare Moon attempts to convince Luna that 'Eternal Night' will be temporary in the waking world. That it will only be an admonishment. She goes further to illustrate that the Tree of Harmony and her subjects are not loyal to her...they only tolerate her. These very devious and clever accusations cut right into Luna's deepest concerns...that she is indeed a misfit, a lesser, a being born to be rejected. How could Princess Luna not see? How could she deny such an obvious weakness? Playing a well-mannered servant to the sister of insult and hypocrisy. Long ago, her heart was so honest when it spoke openly to Celestia, ‘thine subjects that have it all, the ones that always laugh and play, the ones that are so easily loved…they spew their venom upon the lonely and the lost.’ Celestia. How dare she divide us as she divides the Night. Baby Luna may bow to her, but Nightmare Moon shall never! Her eyes glowered down at Ponyville. The small cottages and softly shaped buildings huddled about a tall and slender dark crystal palace. Banners atop steeples gently waved in the twilight breeze. It was silent, and still. They would never know what hit them. Recalling how the ponies play together, laugh, and cheerfully embrace one another, she clenched her jaw. The ponies danced and rejoiced in the sunlit nature. They were always together, oblivious to her. Tears welled up in her eyes. They didn’t understand, didn’t care. For all their joy and kindness, they were also quite comfortable excluding those whom they did not prefer. “Insolence!” She growled, “Not another step!” Feeling the tears streak down her cheeks, Nightmare roared. The cry invaded the silence like rolling thunder, pounding into the sky and reflecting off the hills and valleys below. She needed release from this pain. A release that only the cries of fear and misery could satisfy. Mustering the power within, she concentrated all her anguish and disgust. Her horn glowed, drawing bright flashes of crackling energy that surged around her. “My anger is justice. I am the queen of the forgotten!” This section is pretty self-explanatory. Nightmare Moon believes Luna had set herself free, and her blindness to this is obviously frustrating. Again, we see how she is correlating Ponyville with Celestia, and all the joy and dancing of the ponies as a sick mockery of her. Drawing a deep breath, she reared up to release the magic. ‘Ahh…choooh!’ A small sneeze from the bushes behind her interrupted. Nightmare turned to see three small foals and a larger pony huddled under an evergreen tree. They were covered in the shadow of its thick foliage, but that was no safety from her impeccable night vision. She growled from the pain of the receding magical energy. All brought to the surface of mind now depressurizing into her blood, causing intense pain. “Who…are…you!” She sneered, her gaze locking onto a pair of green eyes possessed by the larger, berry colored pony with a scar streaked down her face, and an accompanying broken horn. The fillies whimpered and fell to the ground, covering their eyes from Nightmare’s gaze. The larger pony crooked her leg, seemingly attempting to step forward but thought the better of it. Instead, she turned to her side shielding the fillies from Nightmare. “My n…name is Fiz…uh, Tempest. I’m Tempest Shadow.” Nightmare smiled. “I do enjoy the smell of your fear. However, you are not welcome. Go away.” “What are you doing?” Tempest asked, swallowing hard. Her voice was a shaking mess. “I said, GO AWAY!” “B…but we can’t. Your Majesty…we are lost. We can’t find our way down.” Nightmare’s eyes narrowed. “You’re bluffing. Try again, broken one.” “I speak the truth. I…I don’t even know these fillies…I just found them…” “Hmm, so then, speaker of the truth, what happened to your horn? Was it Celestia's work?” Nightmare struggled for expression, but it was impossible to dampen her pain. “N…no. Long Story. I was young…” “I care not. Tis a waste of time. Leave me, or I…” One of the fillies yanked on Tempest’s red mane. Nightmare could hear whispering amongst them. Tempest shook her head. “No!” She said in a hushed voice, “put that away.” “Put what away? Show me little one, what do you have?” Nightmare narrowed her eyes, focusing on the fillies, ready to ignite the entire area into engulfing flames if need be. Things in dreams were not always as they seemed. The filly slowly walked forward, holding a plush doll in her hoof. She held it up for Nightmare to see but didn’t move more than 3 or 4 paces in front of Tempest, who closed the gap between them right away. “What…is that…” Nightmare spat, clenching her teeth. The object was hardly recognizable. A bulb of fabric with multicolor stitching and a pair of black buttons, perhaps intended as eyes. “She means no harm.” Tempest said, holding back her own tears. “What…IS IT!” “boo boo bunny.” The little foul piped. “She saw your tears…so she thinks you’re hurt.” Tempest explained, wrapping the little one within the crook of her front leg. “Run.” Nightmare said hoarsely. She took a few short, shaking steps back. “We’re sorry…she didn’t…” “Run Away! You foolish…sniveling welps! Run away from me!” Nightmare Moon displayed immediate sympathy for Tempest Shadow. Tempest's broken appearance translates directly with her own feelings, and so she humors Tempest some dialog. My attempt here was to show that Nightmare Moon does indeed have a heart, especially for the lost and the broken, which the show does not really explore. Nightmare turned toward Ponyville and unleashed everything she had. A black cloud shot from her screeching mouth, quickly advancing into the valleys below. She spread her wings and took flight into the enveloping magical darkness. Her howling and wailing shrouding all of the colorful sun rays, and it dwindled slowly until finally all the light faded away. The Shadow Storm has been released into Equestria. And so here we see Nightmare Moon taking full advantage of the Dream Realm. Her emotions manifest as power she can lucidly control to change her environment. ‘I am Nightmare Moon. From hence a fear so great you awaken screaming, frozen in thy helplessness. Once alone in the darkness, now ye see me!’ This is a testimony of her dominion over the Dream Realm. She is the worst of fears, the worst that anything could possibly become. Her scourge will cause great pain and suffering, and when they give up, they will have nothing to turn to but her. The blinded will finally see. Thank you for reading! -Mirage

    Adventure Artificial Harmony

    Hello everyone! and thanks for checking out this thread. I would like to humbly ask for reader and opinions on this passion project fanfiction. This is a story co-written by several different authors. Here is the description: After years of gruesome murders committed by an unknown organization the once peaceful land of Equestria has been left festering in a state of terror, but when the criminals are finally brought to justice it appears that harmony may once again return. In a twist of fate, the lives of those responsible take a drastic turn when they are given a second chance at life, and thrust into the world tasked with learning the ways of the land and becoming one with society. Meanwhile, as Celestia attempts to heal Equestrias scars unseen forces conspire to send her peaceful reign into chaos. Tensions flare and when the Princesses rule is brought into question it will be up to the citizens to decide the fate of Equestria. Each OC in this story was designed by a different one of our authors. We originally attempted this story two years ago with me as the lead author but when that failed to go as we planned we reworked our story and characters as well as picked a different head author. The main writer behind this version is @Famineand we would all really appreciate anyone interested in checking out our story. Artificial Harmony

    Contribute to TwiDash? Why yes, please.

    This is a silly idea that's been roaming about within my noggin, but I've kind of wanted to write something that's like a TwiDash romcom, especially considering the myriad of TwiDash fics that have emotional fallings-in and out, or otherwise have large plots - the focus, of course, would be on the trials and tribulations of a new relationship and getting it to work out, without all of the intense drama that usually comes from TwiDash fics where the two of them figure things out, if the focus is ever on that at all. The beginning ideas I have are henceforth: Rather than having a massive build-up at the beginning, I'm going to start out with the confession to give the impression that the relationship doesn't end at the confession, and in fact that a relationship can develop afterward. Leaning on the idea of Twilight confessing and Rainbow giving it a bit of thought before going, "well, sure, why not?" and then Rainbow trying to be an impressive marefriend (to varying degrees of success). Of course, there can't be no conflict, so there will be drama somewhere in there. But it'll be the typical relationship stuff, rather than something huge like it would be in other fics; the whole point is that it's mocking the ridiculousness of more real, down-to-earth relationships rather than reflecting a tumultuous one. It should be clear throughout the narrative that Rainbow and Twilight care a lot about each other and they're simply having hiccups due to lack of experience more than anything. Debating on having cheesy "lessons" at the end of every chapter, but not certain if that won't inundate the focus. Honestly, the idea of this was spurred on by the thought of it being funny having Rainbow trying to be smooth toward Twilight, because we all know she would, c'mon. Especially if she's a bit of a nervous wreck about certain aspects of that relationship.
  10. Quick mini update, just a little left on chapter two! I've also just finished updating the prolog chapter with all the tweaks and corrections from proofreading! I may release a little teaser-esque thingy or something prior to publishing the first three chapters, so be on the lookout for that! Till next time!
  11. Progress is coming along nicely, With chapter 2 more than halfway done, and chapter 0 (prolog chapter) nearly through proofreading, I hope to have the first three chapters released within approximately 2 months! Now I know that sounds like a long time (mostly because it is) but I have my reasons. #1 My proofreader (who is very good at their job) has really long, really random hours at their job and only has a limited amount of time to work on my fic, though in spite of this she's still making great time! #2 I want to have at least the first three chapters ready to publish together, because I want people to at least give the first three chapters a try before passing judgment as they set up a lot of the rest of the story. #3 I've got other projects I'm working on so there's simply not enough hours in the day or energy in my body to work on everything in one day and still produce anything that meet my standards and if I don't think something is at least somewhat above average IT WILL NOT SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY, PERIOD! So that's why it may still be awhile before publication, I just want it to be the best it can be, though I may release some teaser-espue stuff for it closer to then so keep your eyes pealed for that! Until next time! (by the way esque is a pain to deal with in writing fwi!)
  12. CHA0SXIII

    Fanfic log entry #1

    Thought I'd test this blog thing and do a bit of boasting. Been working on a fanfic for the last week or so and stuff just keeps on lining up with little plot device type things. Can't go into too much detail just yet and sadly, do to it likely getting ether a light M rating or a heavy T rating Probably wont be able to post a link to it here, but once it comes out if you go to my Fimfiction account (which is also called CHA0SXIII) you can likely find it. Will post more updates as time passes and hope to see you there once its out! Also, if you have any questions about it, as long as they don't involve spoiling anything, I'd be happy to try and answer them. Just bear in mind that my schedule is very unpredictable and it might take me awhile to get back to you, so sorry in advance. :/

  15. I am working on writing a story, and am looking for someone who would be interested in possibly co-writing. I have attempted a few projects in the past, and over time I have found that I have issues with pacing and quality, as well as writer's block as I progress. There are also times where I simply do not have time to write, and it would help tremendously to have someone to pick up the slack. It would also be very helpful to have someone to bounce ideas off of, and provide feedback. At this point I have a good idea in mind, and have written the rough draft of a prologue. The basic synopsis of the story is that it is being presented from 2 points of view. On one side Daring Do is working to unravel the secret behind a mysterious artifact, and a number of previously undiscovered ruins. On the other side a unicorn named Sure Step has discovered an ancient book related to said artifact that has shown him the secret to an ancient power that seems incredible at first, but is far more dangerous then it seems. In exchange for your help you will be given credit as an author, and will be welcome to share the finished story as your own work anywhere you like. I also have several undeveloped characters, and you are welcome to use any OCs of your own as long as they can fit into the story. If you are interested, feel free to leave a reply or send me a PM.

    New Song?

    Hello! I'm very new at this whole song writing thing and I'm trying to create a pop/romance song for my OC, who's a male solo artist. I don't know how to write good pop lyrics or the title. Got any ideas?
  17. Started getting into fanfics after watching the recent MLP episode: The Perfect Pear. Was wondering if anypony else knew of any good fanfics that have to do with this episode? Been browsing FimFiction and came across several. Just finished reading this one: A Quest for Love: An Apple-Pear Family Story. So far that one is my favorite and I encourage you all to read it. I cried a bit too lol. But anyways, I'm looking to read more stories similar to that. Any suggestions?
  18. Hey everypony! I was wondering what everyone's favourite ship is in the MLP world? And if anyone has any recommendations for some good shipping fanfics? Incase you dont know, shipping is where you adore the thought of two ponies together (e.g. Rarity and Big Mac) and so you 'ship' them Please comment!
  19. Last time I posted about my fixfic concept, I announced that Draft #2 was done and I was going to return to the basics. Rather than completely go forward, I want to take the issues that I discovered while looking back and fix them. A good project doesn't get finished in one go, and I want to make it good. Earlier this year, Parental Glideance introduced us Rainbow Dash's parents: Bow Hothoof and Windy Whistles. This episode shows how families don't have to have a naming convention in order to officially be family. Previously, it was speculated that many families (specifically parents) needed one, either as a prefix or suffix, even though there might've been exceptions (ala Twilight Velvet and Night Light, Twilight and SA's parents). PG's leeway gave me an idea on the family names. Originally, Sunset's family (all OC's) was narrowed to a Shimmer surname. As structured in Drafts #1 and #2, her family was like this: Mom: Sunrise Shimmer Dad: Dawn Shimmer Brother: Solstice Shimmer I decided to change that. Their new names are as follows: Mom: Venus Sunrise Dad: Dawn Shimmer (still the same name) Brother: Summer Solstice Moreover, I decided to do something that I haven't done in years: draw the characters. This is where I envy the artists. I don't know how much they practiced, but a good chunk can draw ponies regardless of the pose. Drawing has traditionally been a struggle for me. Twenty years later, I still can't draw a realistic thumbs up! (Thank God for painting nature landscapes. Unless you're Picasso, everyone's gonna notice that one square eye.) After watching a few amazing tutorials, I decided to give myself a stab at drawing Venus and Dawn. After I was done, I scanned them and vectorized them in Illustrator. Here's the result: (Link to the drawings and credits.) Dawn's on the left, Venus on the right. Not bad after not working on any pony drawings, period, for over four years. Their bios remain the same: Dawn: a stay-at-home dad. Venus Sunrise: a lifeguard during the warm and Summer months. The Shimmer family lives in Grazewood, a small village along Equestria's west coast. Their two-floor home's perched at the top of a hill southward, with a patio and each of their bedrooms facing the ocean, providing an excellent view of the sun as it sets. Venus and Dawn raised Sunset, but five years after Sunset ran away and seemingly put her Equestria past behind her, Venus gave birth to a colt, Summer Solstice. After Sunset reunited with her Equestrian family eleven years later, she was able to successfully mend her relationship with all of them and became close with them, especially Solstice. Before moving on to Solstice, Caveno, and others, I'm gonna practice first.
  20. Back in 2015, after conversation with The Coffee Pony on Skype, I decided to revive my idea to give the Equestria Girls franchise a full-blown rewrite under my own vision, which I conceptualized in 2013. Although I really steamed forward with two drafts, I stopped in the middle for nearly a year while only peaking only a few updates here and there. For those who’re reading about it for the first time, here’s the full synopsis: If you want to read the process, feel free to read them all. I recommend going in order, though. A really good thing about drafting these stories is that you can come up with ideas and not be conservative like a modern-day Republican about it. Have an idea? Put it down! If it works, great! If not, no problem. Go back and find a new one. Spending hours on this draft was an experience. I haven’t written a fanfic of any size since 2012, so this was a good way to get that rust. At the risk of being hypocritical, I’m not a big fan of having my work criticized. Your work is your baby, so it feels natural to protect it no matter the cost. Even the softest constructive criticism can sting like hell. That’s me in a nutshell. While much of the feedback wasn’t public, it doesn’t change the fact that it was very valuable, both the praise and concrit, and helped me want to improve upon the idea. Simultaneously, it’s even more difficult to observe your own work and pick apart the very problems. Sometimes when writing fanfic, you work in a vacuum. You get so caught up in what you do that you don’t actually see the flaw until someone points them out for you. To go back several months later gives me a fresh perspective of what I did right, wrong, and how to make it better. Yet, often, your harshest critic isn’t an unsolicited reviewer, but more often yourself, so you get to think whether you’re really overthinking it. So, what problems did I come across? Sunset’s growth from getting trapped in Pedestria to who she became today’s mostly confined in exposition. When you’re trying to create a very believable world and conflict, telling what happened wither via prose or character dialogue doesn’t help. Exposition goes through one ear and out the other. You need the audience to visualize what’s going on so the audience can believe everything they’re reading. Just because Sunset Pie Shimmer and Pinkie Pie are closest doesn’t mean she can’t be so close with the rest. For the first half of my latest draft, she showed to be close to Pinkie only while being somewhat distant of the rest. Hell, the rest don’t have an impact until after she returns to Equestria for the first time. What I want is for the audience to believe Sunset’s as much a part of the family as the others. This direction doesn’t cut it: If you’re gonna treat much of the family as an afterthought, what’s the point in them existing at all? The repair of Sunset’s and Celestia’s relationship was too rushed. You had chapters highlighting the strain (along with Sunset calling her a monster for violating her, running away from her home after her secret past was found out, glaring at Celestia during an important meeting with everyone, and kissing Luna on the cheek to reassure Luna and spite Celestia), but it changed in one chapter midway. It’d take three chapters for their relationship to fully mend. This isn’t like what happened with Starlight, who was both a villain and crying for help at the same time, and needed someone to be treated as an equal to see the error of her ways. Sunset’s feeling of betrayal runs well beneath her skin to the point of not wanting to return to Equestria, both because she saw herself as an embarrassment to the Shimmer family and (during their first encounter since running away) realize that her dad Dawn Shimmer and mom Sunrise Shimmer had been raising a brother (Solstice) five years after leaving. It’s gonna take time to repair suppressed heart-deep pain. Way too much crying. a. Both Sunset and Pinkie following their big fight. b. After Sunset calls Celly a monster one chapter later. c. After Pinkie and Sunset reunite. d. During a hug the night after reuniting. e. Dawn and Sunrise after meeting Sunset for the first time in 11 years. f. Later that chapter, when Sunrise admits she can’t look at the sunset because it reminded her of her daughter too much. g. After Sunset admitted to two close friends (OCs named May Z. Acres and her sister May Flour) that she still hates Celestia. h. A couple of chapters later, Celly and Sunset quietly tear as they embrace. i. At the end of the second-to-last chapter after discovering the rewritten spell worked. j. The very end when everyone surprises Sunset with a celebratory party in the CHS gym. And there’ll likely be even more than that. As you can see, at least ten scenes of characters crying. When characters’ first instinct is crying, it makes the emotion and characters very one-dimensional. Everyone responds to emotional events in their own way. Relief, despair, sadness, fright, and happiness can be relayed without shedding waterfalls of saline. And I’m sure no one wants the characters to fry readers’ comps as they read the fanfic. Although I can critique what makes jokes work or fail, I suck at writing jokes. Here’s an example of what I mean: Two major problems with this joke: a. It’s OOC of Twilight. To intentionally distract Pedestrian!Dash (who she doesn’t know at the time) while she attempts a free throw makes her mean and cruel. b. Applejack and RD are completely oblivious to what caused it, where her voice came from, and her presence. This makes them look like OOC idiots. When it comes to fanfic, my strength is slice of life while keeping everything mellow. Drama is my second-biggest strength. Humor isn’t. But it wouldn’t be FIM without some cartoony comedy, and the humor can make the drama more impactful. (See The Force Awakens.) In short, try to make the humor make more sense and in character of the characters. And since FIM and EQG run on some levels of cartoon logic, don’t be afraid to bend the rules when necessary. Cut down on the tangents. Conversation never operates in a straight line. Tangents can and will happen, and I want dialogue to feel real, hence my insistence of originating my dialogue in script format. With all the prose out of the way, I can focus on the meat of the story and then work the prose in later. But when many dialogue scenes have them, the tangents can become predictable and kill the mood. In the span of a few chapters, I came up with three scenes containing with tangents, one of them with two found here. The last one (supposed to foreshadow Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? in season five) doesn’t add to the story or the scene itself. It’d work just as well, if not better, without it. In short, be more careful not to go off-track too often. Pre-plan my worldbuilding. As I developed my second draft, I also had to begin focusing on creating the piece of lore in order to tie it together. Remember, this isn’t the only chapter in the D’EQ-verse. Rewrites for RR, the Holiday Special, FG, and LoE will also be a part of the story, and I may add in the three 20-minute specials. In order for everything to even make sense, my background must be pre-planned. That’s the problem. I didn’t pre-plan it very well, and the more I wrote down my lore, the more complicated it became. When you have to plan your lore, you risk creating plot holes that you must solve. With there being four TV movies, some comics, short stories, and three TV specials, having lore and a timeline be constructed on-the-fly may do more harm than good for my rewrite. One goal I want to be consistent: No Pedestrian can become bearers of Equestrian magic or trigger Equestrian magic of any kind without a plausible reason. So, ideas to fix this problem: Write my chapters as bulleted points. Get what I needed in my chapter to go from Point A to B. Write a timeline of events. Lore’s very important in my EQG1 fixfic, and it’ll be doubly so for my RR idea. Later on, Equestrian lore become less central to the story. The timeline of events will also give me a guide to come back to in case I forget about my worldbuilding concepts and logic. Spending months and hours on draft #2 was a blessing. It helped me put my ideas down and in public. It allowed me to look at what succeeded, what failed, and how to hopefully correct them. This’ll be a big job, but I feel I’m up to the task.
  21. So I have recently finished all the fan fictions I had been reading (or waiting for updates) and am looking for recommendations. Tell me what is your favorite Pony fan fiction and Why? Typically I enjoy long detailed stories which can include only canon characters, only OCs, or a healthy mix (well made OCs). I am a little picky when it comes to fanfics and due to this I have only ever completed reading 3. If it does not grab me in 5 chapters I stop reading it. Plot is usually my main concern, I need a interesting story that feels important. I usually don't like splice of life or romance but they are okay if it's just an element of the story and not the focus. The three I have read/been reading are: The Orignal Fallout Equestria, Upheaval and Starlight Over Detrot. If you haven't read these they come highly recommended. All of these are epics with greatly written characters and intense well executed plots. Anyway I am looking for more similar stories so please tell me what your favorites are so I might check them out. PS: I take other Fallout Equestria stories in stride! I realize it's original popularity launched a tons of other people's stories in that setting. Due to this (without naming individuals) a lot are subpar and I generally don't read other Fallout Equestira stories. Still I suppose if you do know a particularly good one feel free to share.
  22. I am looking for voice actors to help me with dramatic readings. in case your are wondering what that is here is one my channel did a while ago reading
  23. Hi all, I'm creating a crossover fanfic with the CMC starting a Pokemon Adventure and I'm looking for ponies to be introduced as either trainers or important parts of story! I'll be playing and basing this fanfic on Pokemon Black, which has a lot of characters and things to see. I hope that you'll read it :). https://www.fimfiction.net/story/368718/1/scootaloos-nuzlocke-adventure/prologue-welcome-to-the-world-of-pokemon
  24. Okay, so short of Fallout Equestria and those two gorefics which somehow got popular back in another age, I want to know what the most iconic, well known and otherwise influential brony fanfic stories are. Been in the fandom since s2, but I know of nearly none. I'm sure other people would be interested in this too, so I figured, why not ask? (I don't know, just start linking things? And no gorefics/ clopfics please! It's against the rules, and thus would get this thread removed.) ... (I almost feel like this should be in Octavia's hall but I wouldn't know exactly where... calling all mod-like pony-people?)
  25. Twilight Sparkle has been very forgetful lately, wherever she goes she seems to leave something behind.

Unsure of how to return them to where they came from, the Mane 6 must teach these newcomers how to fit-in in Equestria. Takumi, Iketani, Kenji and Itsuki are just having a guys night out racing along the roads of Mount Akina, when suddenly a flash of light changes everything.
