#Reviewer #The Training Grounds
Previous thread: >>128053

Welcome one and all to the Training Grounds, the review thread authors and reviewers, both newcomers and seasoned veterans alike! With the closing of the spreadsheet, we’re going back to square one: just stories, reviews, and this thread right here. Things will be kept track of by hoof, wing, and/or claw with a listing every so often.

How to get a review: Post a story with its title, description, tags, and a link to it where applicable. Please include all of these in your post and not just a Fimfiction link to a title page.

How to review: Write what you think about a story (or review) and post it in a reply. Put a * in front of the subject field if you’d like your review reviewed.

List of unclaimed stories: >>129398

I was very low on sleep while chugging along this review, so that could have exacerbated my normal dimwittedness.

Anyway, happy I could help.

Made a Blog post [www.fimfiction.net] about this, but it felt appropriate to make one here too.

Lately I've had trouble picking up a book and settling into it, or picking up a story, or reviewing stories like I used to, and for the longest time I couldn't figure out why. It's not that I don't love reading. I do. It's an incredible escape, and it can take you on grand adventures to far off worlds, all from the comfort of your own home. It's literally a fantasy, but I don't need to spend 500 words explaining to you why reading is so popular. The point is, I can't figure out what's so difficult about it. Once involved in a book, the world melts away, and I sometimes forget that I'm sitting on my couch, or my favorite chair, or that there's a cat curled up purring in my lap, or that there's a cup of black cherry tea on the side table next to me, vapor no longer wistfully floating from its surface.

I think that the reason why it's so great is the same reason why I can't pick it up anymore. Reading takes you somewhere else. It almost literally takes you to a completely different world, where your problems don't exist, and wonderful people go on grand adventures, and you leave your entire existence behind. And I think that's the problem. Reading used to be a fun, relaxing experience for me, where I'd recharge from spending so much social energy. But now that life has gotten so crazy, I'm spending most of my energy not socializing so I can focus on my plan for the future.

What that has to do with reading is the fear of letting go. I'm fighting so hard to control my current situation, that I'm afraid if I let go of it I'm going to lose any stability I had. My mind can't seem to comprehend that I'm not actually leaving this world, and that things will actually be pretty much the same when I return. Every time I pick up a book, and stare through the portal of that brave new world, I linger on the threshold, afraid to step through the port

I used to read a lot more than I do now, and I think the reasons are roughly similar. I've got too much going on in the real world to feel comfortable dropping it all to spend my time reading. There's a fic I'm editing that I absolutely love. I think it's really well written, the story has me engaged, it has some great moments, and yet I can only just barely force myself to read a chapter over the course of several days. There was a time when I'd go through entire books in less time than that, barely able to pull myself from its pages. These days I have so many other things vying for my attention, things that I'm invested in and care about, that reading has fallen a bit behind on my priority list.

#Collection #Discussion

Here is a thread for people to post their recommendations so new people can get a general picture of the highlights of fiction in the fandom, or for people to ask for recommendations.

Rules:
1.) No self-promotion, your work should stand for itself and make others want to refer to it.
2.) Provide tags and some small additional information for people to know what they are heading into.

Suggestions:
1.) Do post on this thread and promoted works that deserve the attention.
2.) If you see people asking for recommendations, direct them here and ask them to delete their thread.

That is all.

I'm writing a fic for my own amusement that features a lot of crossover and time travel stuff. Ditzy 'Derpy' Doo is in it and I thought it would be fun for the Doctor to show up at some point, but I don't have any idea how he's charactereized due to having never read any of the fics.

So I came here to ask about Doctor fics, specifically those featuring Derpy as a companion. Which are the better ones and/or those most entrenched in the fandom's collective conscious?

I've already found what I understand to be the 'original' Derpy companion fic, My Little Time Lord:

Without having read the story in this question:

>>131267
> What benefit does it serve to describe picking apart a rock pile.
Because it gives every action some importance to the situation. Plus it sounds like there's some serious telling going on, and not a lot of showing.

> If the only relevant bit is the fact that he did it, then that's all you need to say.
The difference between reading a story, and watching a TV show, is that information is conveyed differently in both mediums.

In this case, the reader can learn about a character in the way they interact with the world. In a visual medium we have cues you can send to show how a character does any action. In prose you pretty much place importance only on things you focus on. If you don't focus on anything, it's just floating heads talking at each other until it's over.

> If we just wanted cute little cartoon horses without any curiosity towards other possibilities, we would just watch the damn show.

>>131257
In a prologue of some 'thing', two floating heads converse, one of whom is recognizable as an important back story character until magic happens.
The second one, 'Lynn' makes me wonder if you know how pony names work.

This is a prologue. It has the basic problem a number of prologues have in assuming that as a reader I'll care because I'm already reading.
It starts well, but then nothing of any importance happens, and a thing flashes, and it ends.

Am I being unfair? Fuck yeah, you wasted my time reading a thing that has no signs of pay off, about two characters I couldn't rub enough damns together to even start to connect with.

It's Starswirl:Origins, and it starts off in a fashion that I have difficulty connecting to my own interpretations of Starswirl, as well as making him a selfish, self centered character fixated on his future importance.

I often refer to myself as a mirror around here, because that's basically what I do: I show you what you can't see yourself based on the fact that you are you. If you don't like what you see in the mirror, don't blame the mirror. Just put some damn makeup on.

>If the only relevant bit is the fact that he did it, then that's all you need to say.
If you think that "a pony moved a rockpile" is all that's relevant then you've got a lot to learn about compelling characters. Minty's hit it on the head. You can learn a lot about a character by how they interact with the world around them. In fact, that's pretty much how you learn about anyone, short of being told. And as we all know, telling in writing is bad.

Say you walked into a room and saw a desk covered in stuff.
What do you know about the owner of the desk? Well, obviously they use it, so... they do a lot of work? might be a workaholic? No, we can't conclude that. Maybe it's stuff that's sat there forever and never been touched, or maybe it's just temporarily there as they clean it out. We don't know. We haven't been told. We know almost nothing about this character.

What if we were told the desk had crumpled papers lying in a horseshoe around a legal pad filled with words across the front page, and a pen placed at an angle next to it.
What can you tell me about the owner of the desk now? Your imagination fills in the implications based on the knowledge it's given.

This is odd. I think I'm one of four people in position to actually give feedback on this story. You have a very small target audience that could actually understand this story, and there will will most likely be one that just wants you to continue blindly until you burn yourself out.
That group being readers that like the CMC, and Diamond Tiara, and Silver Spoon, and have an in depth knowledge of Digimon that they don't have to google search every paragraph to know what's going on.

So I can say that I'm pretty sure there's a core idea at work here. If that idea is not just Digimon Adventure with names replaced with ponies, I'll be overjoyed.

But I have problems with things here.

Right now, you're just doing Digimon Adventure plot wise. And you're doing it badly.
You have nine title characters (two more than DA at the same point), plus digimon which pushes right to eighteen main characters, plus villains which puts the number around twenty five, which is way more than even an experienced writer can handle.
In the style which you've decided to do the prose, none of the characters are allowed to have character. They might as well just be name shifted blank slates.
Even Adventure (which I have to compare it to) used it's first episode to establish the world. By first episode, I mean the first movie, which is both In Media Res, and establishes the rules without having the characters stop and explain them to the viewer.
The first tv episode stops to review the characters, giving the reader an idea of who each character is without stopping to explain the engine to the reader.

sounds like a story issue. The best crossovers have references that can be recognized and laughed at by fans of the crossed over material, but present them in a way that they can be understood by readers not previously familiar with them. You'll need to work on that.

There. Feedback. Combine that with just about everything Minty said, and you might be in business.

I've started reading MLP fanfics recently. Posters here (on the Internet, I mean) seem to have a propensity for pouring hate and vitriol on things they don't like. Since this only leads to derailments and drama, I had an idea, and I hope others will follow my lead.

I'm going to post about some fics I've read, and then say a little bit about each one, ending with a conditional recommendation. I'm not going to say anything bad about a fic; I will only be descriptive and say what I liked about them.

If you want to post about a story someone already spoke of, feel free to do so, if you have something positive to add about it.

It's important to note that when I refer to 'quality of writing' I mean things like paragraph and sentence structure, grammar and word choice, NOT things like the premise or the story structure.

I'll limit it to one story per post.

It made me laugh pretty hard, especially when the author randomly slipped into GOOD grammar.

It had a quality of writing. By the rules of this thread, I can say no more about it.

The Conversion Bureau: First Contact

Conversion Bureau stories involve the world of Equestria coming into contact with the real world. This story explored what the event of their coming into contact might be like.

Like most (or all) TCB stories, this one takes place somewhere in the near future, after mankind has ravaged Earth. It casts mankind in a very negative light. That's not a comment on the quality of the story, just a description of its contents.

The story only touches on the Conversion Bureau concept towards the end. Most of the story concerns the titular first contact scenario, which I enjoyed reading about. Celestia is depicted here as a savvy statesman, and it's fun to watch.

Quality of writing is pretty decent.

I can only recommend this if human stories are your thing, or if you have a penchant for first contact scenarios, like I do.

My Little Dashie

I just read this one today. It's a sad story, but it's the kind of sad that makes you feel better about life - and yes, that's a thing, it's why tearjerker movies are such big business. Watching sad movies or reading sad books can make you feel less depressed.

It's also crass, self-indulgent wish fulfillment, but note that I don't consider that a bad thing.

I've seen some people say the environment in which the protagonist lives is contrived, but I was definitely thinking of Detroit while reading it. Detroit is seriously a lot like that, you guys. And living alone and in misery is not even remotely unrealistic; I honestly think that has something to do with the brony phenomenon in general.

So, a lot of people are going to sympathize with the protagonist, a younger adult who lives alone working a dead-end job.

This is a very short fic. I do consider that a positive here.

Just thought of something that might make for a good fic.

In Rainbow Rocks, the sirens need Equestrian magic to regain their full power. But Twilight just leaves the portal wide open the entire time. So what if the sirens walked right into Equestria, absorbed their fill of magic, destroyed the portal machine so Twilight couldn't get back, and wreaked havoc on Equestria again?

Just an idea.

I figured as deadslow as this board is, me discussing things I'm working on here can't hurt. I'll just post my thoughts on my current works, past works, future projects, etc, as they come to me. Feel free to jump in, though I realize I'm not exactly critically acclaimed. I shall return to this thread continuously as I go about my incessant pony scribblings, to see what may be gleaned from any discussions arising here.

About me: Well, I'm a darkfic addict, so I really love to see creativity with those, as opposed to just gore for gore's sake. I'm also very cruel as a writer, and tend to seek out every bit of despair I can draw from a character. It's quite fun, actually. I love forcing characters to make impossible choices.

And the stuff I'm still tirelessly working on, hoping to someday post for everypony to enjoy.

A Really Bad Story [www.fimfiction.net]
What started as a joke, combined with frustration and discouragement, actually turned into something, and I do intend to finish it eventually. I’m sure Shoeblock—assuming he’s still around—will remember when a disgruntled anon dropped this little ditty off in the Training Grounds back in January 2013. Appearing to be a deliberate troll fic, or an elaborate test for reviewers, this story took every mistake listed in Ezn’s story guide, and abused them with vengeance. It was meant to be silly, but actually became something.

A plot unfolded before my eyes, and I saw that perhaps it could be an attempt by Scootaloo to discover her writing talent. The second chapter was born, and I had a real story on my hands, as Scootaloo ran first to Rainbow Dash, then to Twilight for writing advice, and the story began to run away with me.

It was halted when too many ideas popped into my head, and I wanted to work on bigger stories, but I do plan to bring this out of hiatus perhaps before 2015.

Grace in Equestria [www.fimfiction.net]
I’m really, really, really sorry to everyone who saw this when it first showed up in TTG, and Fimfiction. I had a whole plot written for this, and have been retconning in all the new changes with the comic and with the show, but I’ve just been far too distracted to continue this, and it’s just been sitting on the backburner.
>> No. 130400
A few of the ideas in my head haven’t even made it to rough draft yet, because I wasn’t able to work out the kinks in the plotline enough to find them suitable. The faults in here are pretty obvious, but who knows, maybe some discussion will reveal a few of them worth making.

Flying Blind
This one turned up in a thread on Tumblr, where someone had whited out Sweetie Belle’s eyes. Sweetie Belle has started reading magic books from Twilight’s library, and decides to try some spellcrafting of her own. Attempting a “see in the dark” spell, she accidentally turns her entire world dark, permanently, and must now rely on her magic to “see”. (She can’t physically see anything, but she can sense where things are.)

Sweetie Belle has been boasting her magical talents, and Scootaloo becomes jealous. She heads off into the everfree, looking for a decent cliff to jump from, in the hopes that her wings will catch some wind. Rainbow Dash hears about Scootaloo’s disappearance and heads off to search for her, and eventually finds her trapped in a dark cavern—too dark to see anything. Sweetie Belle has to guide Rainbow Dash through the cavern to rescue Scootaloo.

This never took off because the plot is too loosely arranged, and seems to pull Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash out of left field. On top of that, I never figured out how to end it.

Who
This draws its inspiration from the season two episode “Owl’s well that ends well”. A year behind Twilight at Princess Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns, an aspiring young stallion not only idolizes our favorite lavender unicorn, but has a huge crush on her. When Twilight graduates and moves away, he’s devastated, but doesn’t really know where she’s gone. After doing some research, he discovers she’s in Ponyville, and decides to go after her. Buuuuuut, he’s gotten himself suspended, and grounded, for sneaking into the royal library.

Change [www.fimfiction.net]

I guess this one has been a long time coming, but once I sat down to write it, it didn't take very long. In this story, Twilight serves as the vessel for the emotions a lot of us sometimes feel when the things we love change drastically, or simply die out. Yes, this story is written about /fic/, but it is also written about a few other things in my life. Old /fic/sters may recognize a few parallels I made, and if you must ask, I'm not sure if I'm represented by Applejack or Pinkie. Either way, the poem mentioned is one I wrote a long time ago, but I guess it just took Ponies for me to finally give it enough life for its message to reach me.

#Author #Single fic #Random #Comedy

So, I need of a bit of help. Long story short, I need a writer who's both really good and with a good grip on the English language and grammar who also doesn't mind really random plot lines. My friend and I were collaborating with a not great comedy fic called "Welcome to the Human World Lyra." It's stupid fun, and we were just bumming around, but recently, I've been suffering from a bit of depression, and my motivation took a nosedive. Now, even with my depression gone, I'm still not fully motivated. I need someone to help the two of us out to work on the second half of Chapter 3 and any future chapters. Let me know if you are interested, and I'll hand over some contact info.

#Discussion

"My name is Lyra Heartstrings, and you will not remember me. You won't even remember this conversation. Just like with everypony else I've ever met, everything I do or say will be forgotten. Every letter I've written will appear blank; every piece of evidence I've left behind will end up missing. I'm stuck here in Ponyville because of the same curse that has made me so forgettable. Still, that doesn't stop me from doing the one thing that I love: making music. If my melodies find their way into your heart, then there is still hope for me. If I can't prove that I exist, I can at least prove that my love for each and every one of you exists. Please, listen to my story, my symphony, for it is me."

Suppose that it was you, not Twilight, whom Lyra said these chilling words to. What would be your response?

"Please, listen to my story, my symphony, for it is me."

The story is hard to believe. Nonetheless, it has, like always, been a slow day at the library. Twilight figures there's no harm in humouring the filly.

"Just give me a moment to digest this."

Lyra blinks.

"Before I entertain this idea at all, I need to be convinced you're not just crazy. You look harmless enough, so I'll let you come inside. Just, uh, don't touch anything."

"Nothing I do leaves behind a trace." Her ears droop. "There's no way for me to convince you I'm telling the truth. You just have to believe me."

Welcome, one and all, to the THIRTEENTH iteration of the round-table discussion that is known to some as THE CONVERSION BUREAU Thread! Started back in March, this over-arching fanon universe of The Conversion Bureau has spawned over 50 spin-offs, many worthy of standing on their own as fantastic stories in their own right. Come in, sit down, have a cold one, and enjoy your reading! Feel free to participate if you feel so inclined to do so!

Obligatory video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXoYK4b_q24

Old Thread: >>72569

We’re always ready to welcome new writers and any ideas they may have! Also, make sure to comment and give feedback on new stories and new updates! Authors absolutely love hearing what people think of their work. Be sure to try to offer civil and constructive criticism if you find any problems with their story! (They like it when you do that) If you don't say anything, you are depriving the author of input that could make their story 10 times better, so speak up whether you're a lurker or a regular poster! Who knows, you might even come up with something used generally like PER, r63 potion, Purification and I'm probably forgetting something but oh well.

Also, this still might be my last TCB thread. As such I am gonna be a little bit ambitious.

*** Only the new or updated stories will be posted below. ***

Thanks so much for answering!

I'm starting to figure out how to navigate the world of MLP fanfics, but it's not exactly easy.

As for First Contact, it was actually finished, but there seems to be a missing chapter in the MIDDLE of the story.

I'll probably try to ask the author, as the possibility is going to bug me forever if I don't.

Thanks again!

That's actually a word for "the missile from a slingshot."

Apologies if I'm making a newbie mistake for a second time or simply forgot image.

(And also apologies for semi-necroing something I didn't realize was dormant this long. Partly was looking for an excuse to test ponychanX and my trip/etc).

#Single fic #Sad

It had been fifteen years since his brother had passed away by taking his own life Joel having been only been fourteen at the time and his brother only two years older he witnessed his brothers demise this scarred his already frail and fragile young mind and he has carried this heavy baggage around with him and grieved over the loss of his beloved brother ever since. Now Joel is twenty nine and still resides within his penthouse in bronx he had bought with the money he had inherited from his father when he had died. Joel is still upholding his rather playboyish lifestyle. But this week more particularly this day was different. On a normal week joel would've picked some gullible mare off the street and date here for a week or two then leave her a few weeks later. But this week was different this week happened to contain the day of the anniversary of that fateful day his brother had snapped under all the pressure and decided to put an end to all the pain of having to witness the constant quarreling between their parents. This day he had knew was coming however something unexpected was headed his way later this day that.That being the closure to end this grief over his brother once and for all. Closure to this pain is not something he consciously sought after its something his troubled mind yurned for. he had promised himself he would stop by Calvary Cemetery today to to pay his respects to his brother as he did every year on the anniversary.Little did he know this particular visit would change his life forever and hed also meet a new friend (expect updates on this post as the day passes)

That Slender Mane link leads to an expired file. I tracked down a copy and made a new Gdoc
