Old Thread: >>65451

Welcome to Fan/fic/ Theater 3000, the only MST series where ANYONE can add riffs to awful My Little Pony fanfiction.

A MST, taken from "MST3K", the popular 90's television series, is where people add humorous comments to horrible fanfics. There are many MSTs all over the Internet, for various fandoms. Ours just happens to be the only one that lets anyone add riffs through Google Docs' right-click comment feature.

Now that season two is over, I believe it is appropriate to make this thread--the thread where we honor the fics that were totally wrecked as a result of season two's hurricane of canon.

What fics have you seen or written die in the process?

I'll start with pretty much every Luna story out there. Like Progress. Fanon-OC Luna died a quick death after Luna Eclipse aired.

I don't think I emphasized this enough:
> Outer space in the FiM universe isn't nearly as majestic or awesome as outer space in our universe, because the heavens in FiM are merely a contrivance that is at the whim and mercy of unicorn/alicorn magic.
This was the Hearth's Warming episode, where it's revealed that the unicorn race controlled the sun, moon and seasons before the princesses. Space exploration fics are pretty much out the window, most notably (to my chagrin, because I haven't gotten around to reading it) Our First Steps. If space can be controlled, what's the use of exploring it? Would it be of much use or interest to journey inside of the water heater or AC system of one's house, when there's nothing wrong with them and we have a master handymare (Luna) to maintain them?

The part of me where my love of astronomy and all things spacey intersected with my love for FiM died a horrible, agonizing death when I saw the Hearth's Warming episode. And then, in the time travel ep, where Twilight is doing astronomy in broad daylight, I facepalmed, and then facepalmed again.
>> No. 98551
Well, I was thinking on writing this story to explain that, where the rotation of the earth was stopped by some greater magic, and that the ones in hearth warming were actually controlling a false heaven which kept them alive in a gigantic frozen wasteland which got worse and worse as time passed rather than what we saw, the need to make a false sun to penetrate the permanent storm forcing all unicorns into a single place to created without expecting retribution or perish. So cosmology exist, it's just that there is so much magic they can mess with it, but not stars thousands of miles away. There is much more to my story, but, well... if I can get myself to stop worrying about everything and actually write...

Feh, all this talk about discarding canon. All that you need to do is:

- Don't explicitly call Twilight an only child.
- Don't explicitly state there are only two alicorns.
- Don't mention changelings.
- Don't use love-based deus ex machinas.

For 98% of fics, that should be no problem, because these details otherwise have no bearing. Omitting irrelevant details is different than rewriting canon.

#Write-Off #Halloween

Accolades [writeoff.rogerdodger.me] | Current list of participants [docs.google.com] | Event Overview [writeoff.rogerdodger.me]

Coming right on the heels of the last write-off is one sponsored by the Transformations Group [www.fimfiction.net] on FimFiction (unaffiliated with the imageboard transformations thread).

The long and the short of it:
Participants will have 2 weeks to write and submit a story. Stories are submitted anonymously and then rated in a week-long public voting session. On Halloween night, authors will be revealed and winners will be announced.

To sweeten the deal, the admins of the Transformations Group [www.fimfiction.net] will provide $15 towards a commission of the winner's choice.

If you’d like to participate, just put a comment down and I'll add you to the participant's list

I totally thought the voting would take another day or two. Oh well.

Just want to at least say something here at least. Sorry I wasn't really active with the intermediate reviews or anything, but I've had a bit of a busy week or so. Besides, I'm too soft to give proper reviews most of the time.

Just for formality's sake, I might as well at least give my opinions on the other stories, even if they aren't really 'reviews':

Honestly, this one had me confused, though knowing how you had to do the ending explains a bit. A bit. I still didn't get that it was a changeling until like the second read.

Also, I don't get why there had to be blood from the candles. Like, why blood? Why not something else spooky or creepy?

#Single fic #Adventure

By: Geno Blast


It's 1937, and Daring Do is at it again in this brand-new adventure. This time she must team up with old and new allies as she travels around the globe to track down the location of a lost empire buried beneath the desert sands for millennial. Things get heated once she realizes that she is not alone in this quest: an international group of raiders has their eyes set on claiming the big prize, and will go to great lengths to eliminate the competition. Thrills, chills and death-defying feats await Daring Do and her companions in this adventure.

If adventure has a name, it MUST be Daring Do!


This is a part of my Daring Do series, which are fics that are supposed to be "Daring Do Books". I hope you'll enjoy this, and feel free to post in this thread or the comment section in the link.

Right, then. I have absolutely no idea how this place works, so bear with me if this ends up being badly formatted, or something. Anyway, I'm not looking for a review on this so much as an in-depth edit for stuff that I've missed. The story in question was (barely) rejected by EqD for minor issues in capitalization, comma use, hyphen/emdash confusion, thought punctuation, dialogue punctiation, and spacing. By minor, I mean the pre-reader found only one or two mistakes.

I'll work on scouring the fic over the next couple days to clean it up a bit, but I'd appreciate another set of eyes.

Here's the fimfic link: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/69394/a-simple-reflection

I think you want this thread: >>128937 as that's what most people pay attention to.

For your troubles (welcome, by the way!), I've taken the liberty of scouring your first chapter for you. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Yy3jId6RoKfh80anyRmmsQcbS7hP_3AILkMopSJfDNY/edit Comments are enabled in case anybody else would like to chip in. I'm afraid I'm too busy to help beyond this, but I hope you find it useful.

On the list of edits, you are right in the minor issues bit. I think the biggest difference between the pre-readers and your regular readers (I did a bit of background check; you have a lot of them) is that the latter probably wouldn't care. A lot of these are small to mid-level things, with the worst being mediocre flow and the mildest not even an error in itself. The thing is, your story and dialogue are strong enough to make me not care - but, measures are measures, ecetera.

If you're looking for a line-by-line edit, it would make it that much easier if you put it into a Google Doc like that one.

By the by, I rather like your idea. Pity the title's so weak. Might I suggest something more in-your-face like "HIE"? You know, take a leaf out of SS&E's naming books.

Anyways, I wish you the best. Hope this helps, keep writing.

I hear a lot of complaints about the way in which Discord was defeated at the end RoH. So, I'm curious, how would you have had him be stone-ified? Big magical battle, game of wits, or something else?

Maybe it's your delivery of the idea, or maybe it's some of the details you left out, but it just doesn't sound like a solid plot line. It feels disjointed.
>> No. 109337
Ooh, shiny.

Now, let's bear in mind that prose is a lot more plot-oriented than other storytelling media. I have a personal distaste for trying to cram epic stories like RoH into episodic format, so we're gonna get something more like a novel or story arc out of this.

I think Dem's barking up the right tree for the final confrontation: Discord loses because in the end ponies freely choose harmony. Like in the Hearth's Warming story.

So, I'd keep the first act, Discord tearing down and defeating Twilight.

But then the twist is that defeating Twilight does not extinguish the last ember of Harmony. There are six of them, remember? So I can totally crush her while still having a credible way to get harmony back.

That means Twilight loses the spotlight as protagonist. But that makes sense, doesn't it? After all, from the very beginning, she was never the one to create friendships; she's more a student of friendship.

It's because I'm not even writing full outline of the episode. Some parts work, in my mind, and I pointed out when and where I kept those in. If / because you ignored that, then it's going to be reading patch notes for a video game and not understanding the rules of its gameplay.

I just noticed that DH/BO is erasing one account completely and then he erased before it was meant to be gone.

Honestly, at this point, if I were a prospetive employer thinking about hiring Device, I wouldn't, mostly because he seems like a huge dramaphille and I don't think he'd be all that conductive to a productive work environment. My coworkers are all considered emotionally mature adults and putting them in a meeting room still can result in the most infantile drama imaginable. Lord only knows what that would be like if someone with Device's flaws was injected into the mess.

Although I'd still be willing to be that they didn't hire him because he's had mental problems so severe he's needed to be institualized in the past, and the fact that he's written futaporn stories about a little girls' cartoon is just a rejection-cover that gets around any possible hiring descrimination cases.

Or they could have just been a company that is very consisous of its public image, and they wouldn't want to hire someone who can't propperly conceal is erotic fanfiction career because that just might have a detrimental effect on the company's image as a whole. Most companies don't want consumers to associate their brand with stuff like pony-futa.

#Writing Excercise #Scenes
This thread is for just writing down scenes. It can be something from your current fanfic or something you made up on the spot. It can be coherent and self-contained, part of a larger work, or just something you thought of that really doesn't go anywhere. It can be descriptive, expository, long, short, whatever. It doesn't matter, just write something.

Perhaps you'll write something that'll give you an idea for a longer story. Maybe you can just use it to practice your writing. Who knows, but overall, have fun.

Episode 04, Scene 4 from my WIP "Lost Legacies".

My biggest concern about this scene is characterization. Do the (OC) characters presented here leave distinct, likeable impressions or not? I'd appreciate some feedback if anypony has time.

Background Info
-When Derpy Hooves goes to sleep in this story, a mysterious mare sends her consciousness into the body of a stallion named Silver Cross for reasons unknown.
-Derpy figures that it's all a dream and rolls with it.
-Cross thinks that Derpy is a fairy and a sign of good luck. He hasn't told anypony else about her.
-Derpy shares all of Cross's senses and can talk to him, but she controls nothing.
-Derpy is miffed over an unresolved conflict w/ Rarity from the previous episode. Feather Quill reminds her of Rarity.
-The Golden Harvest in this scene is an OC designed as a pony who actually fits that name. Basically, she's not Carrot Top.

Ok, so bear with me, but hopefully this will be good.

Fluttershy looked up at the sky, the sun shone through a whole in the clouds, beautifully illuminating Cloudsdale from above. She sighed contentedly as she looked away only to find Rainbow Dash had landed softly behind her. "Eep!" she squeaked, Dash smiled "So, you miss Cloudsdale huh?" Fluttershy looked down, whimpered and replied in a barely audible voice "kinda,"

"So why don't go up there?! You are a pegasus you feather brain," said Dash jokingly but with a subtle hint of sincerity. "I would," said Fluttershy "But all the colts who bullied me in flight school are still up there!" as she spoke a flood of thoughts came rolling in.

The taunts, the laughing, the names, the fights, the beatings. They all flooded in, and roiled in her head. A bitter concoction of what she left behind and hoped to never see again. Suddenly she snapped. She broke down into tears. Dash tried to comfort her but the tears still flowed. She leaned in and hugged her. It was a hug that meant comfort from the start. A hug that only a mother could administer, yet Dash somehow managed that feeling.

Fluttershy sniffled and looked at Dash, "I'll only *sniff* go if you come with me to *sniff* to protect me from them,"
Dash nodded her head, "I'll do better than protect you,"

I have reviewed a few pieces on this board, and I have noticed that many people haven't used a semicolon where they could have to great effect. I wondered why, but then I came across a quote from Kurt Vonnegut: "Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college."

How very untrue!

It may feel pretentious to use semicolons, but they really are a fantastic construct! I decided that I, as a writer, owe all the beginners a lesson in semicolons.

Their use is very simple: they link together two sentences--as long as they're related. For example: the sun shone brightly; it was hot. You can instantly see the advantage of using semicolons. You can write compound sentences without conjunctions! (ie and, or, nor, etc.)

They can also be used as a comma's comma--a comma used to list objects that already have commas. For example: I've visited Boise, Idaho; Boston, Massachusetts; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I really want to see more of you use this punctuation. It really is great once you get around to using it.

Kurt Vonnegutt is my literary hero. That said, I disagree with him on semicolons. They have their uses, just as the emdash does. Dofic writers tend to over use them? Hell yes, but what I really hate are freakin' ellipses. That's a topic for a different thread, though.

The semicolon conjoins independent clauses, separates comma descriptive lists outside a colon, and signals an end line on most programing languages. It's not a comma, it's not a period, it simply conjoins two independent clauses. I wouldn't go using it in dialogue though.

You'd lose your other eye if you did that.

Here's my opinion on semicolons, which is the equivalent of some drunk coming up to you and saying "Ya know what I think" then telling you the story of his life; nobody wants to hear that shit, but I digress.

I've noticed that some authors in this fandom have trouble with adequately describing scenery, and I came up with a little something that might help out.

Find a park. Actually, this doesn't need to be a park, but any place with a fair bit of human activity and a hint of nature will work; I myself did this on my campus quad. Lay down on the grass and close your eyes. Consider: how would you describe your perceptions of your surroundings right now? How could you set a scene without ever saying what something looked like? What do you feel? What do you hear? What do you smell?

Consider what you see when you are without sight.

This is not to say that sight isn't important; it's one of our dominant senses. However, a little inclusion of sensory details beyond just what people see can go a long way towards engaging the reader and making everything feel more real.

My apologies if this "exercise" is unclear or even a little on the crap side; my eyes needed a break from my all-nighter editing my original fiction novella for a final project, and posting this has been in my head for a while. I took a little nap in the middle of campus one day, and my mind wandered to how often some people, including myself, neglect most of the senses in writing.

In any case, I hope this helps someone. Make of it what you will.

Lying in the centre of the meadow, anon sighed with happiness, enjoying the serenity and peace only the outdoors can provide. A fresh, cool breeze was blowing, caressing his skin and ruffling his hair. Birds were singing, perched in the nearby trees, adding their melodies to nature's symphony. The trees shuddered in the forest bordering the meadow, as the air flowed through their leaves. The comforting sounds of the wilderness and the scent of grass and pine, aided anon in his respite, easing him into the realm of sleep.

Meh, I had a go, took a while though.

I second that notion.

Very interesting.

What is also interesting when writing Rainbow Dash is her perpetual conflict between her friends and her need to look cool. (Which actually accounts for perhaps half, if not a clear majority of the episodes that had Dash as the main characters.) What is consistent about Dash though is that she would always choose the former over the latter.

This is my first time posting on Ponychan. Please forgive me if I'm doing something wrong.

Anyways, here: https://www.facebook.com/TheBronyhood/posts/446525425364165
In that post I linked you to, I go a little more into detail about what my story will be like and all.

Right now what I want is to build up an audience so I can have some interaction right from the start.
So, if you want to follow along with the story, please go follow on tumblr ( http://gstardust.tumblr.com/ ) or Deviantart ( http://golden--stardust.deviantart.com/ ) and I'm on the process of making a twitter. There's a Facebook page as well, but that one has like 20 likes, which is enough FOR NOW. I want to build up a completely different audience for every website that I use to post the story. Still, if you'd prefer to follow the Facebook page, here it is: https://www.facebook.com/GoldenStardust

Please follow, and again, I'm sorry if I'm doing something wrong. Again, first time posting on Ponychan =/

You didn't read the sticky. You should remedy by deleting your thread and then remaking it in concurrence with the sticky's ruleset.

For a short rundown of what went wrong:
Improper tags: #Author is for compilations of several different stories, by one or more authors. You want #Single Fic.

You force potential readers to go off-site or into your thread to see your synopsis. In three pages the post you did in here will be pushed away from the preview on the board, in fifty it will be gone unless a user opens the entire thread (most don't). Include anything and everything pertinant to your story and hitherto understanding it in your original post.

Furthermore, you lack a proper synopsis. Instead, you have an info dump in the form of a textwall. This is a surefire way to scare off potential readers since it screams "Just TRY to understand my convoluted mess of ideas that's so "deep" that it needs a page of explanations!"

The lack of a picture in your OP is also a warning sign. This draws passing reader's eyes to your story, and in a place as notoroiusly finicky as /fic/, it suggests you couldn't be bother to even do a Google search for something tangentially related.

This is the part where I correct myself:
>In three pages the post
After three replies the post

Tried to get fancy with my words, failed miserably.

>tangentially related
I love tangerines.

Like right now.

That's great I suppose. I don't feel like following something with no information from someone trying to hors themselves out. (Don't worry, it's a muffinshuffler).

As 4chan would say, lurk more. Look at similar posts. Read a few. Get a feel for the local flavor instead of stumbling in blind like an American stereotype in a french made film.

> I had to make him magical. I couldn't get rid of his wings because him being able to fly plays a big part on the story... So I had to make him a mix of both. An alicorn.
