Ok, like I promised, new review thread, this time with rules so I don't get swamped.

1: If you wanna submit, use some basic courtesy and post it in the following form.

Short description:
Anything you want to share with me or tell me about. What parts you want reviewed, what kind of review, etc.

2: I don't do clopfics. Sorry, but that's not my thing. I can do intense shipping, but anything explicit is out of here. Saying "wingboners" or "aroused", or, hell, "penis" is fine. But the second we get penetration, or whatever the hell happens, it's going in the trash.

3: surprisingly enough, I'm ok with lots of Gore. If there's too much though, I wont hesitate to criticize you on it.

Hello! I have a fic for you to review!

Title: The Herald of Fire
Author: InsertCleverNameHere
Tags: [Grimdark] [Adventure]
Synopsis: Four heralds, each more grisly than the last, ride across Equestria searching for the one pony that could stop them. But one of them has doubts. Is what they're fighting for worth it? Is it worth the lives lost? Is it worth all the senseless mayhem? A trip to a familiar small town will test everything she believes in. The following adventure will be one that no one will ever forget.

Let me ask you something,/fic/. Would you use "Oh my god" or "Oh Celestia/ Oh Luna" in your fic? would you use buck or fuck?
arms or forelegs?
Would you consider using "Jesus!" as an exclamation?

Human to poni language general discussion.

Picture related.
>> No. 109505
"Arm(s)" is actually correct for use with ponies.
From dictionary.com:
>the forelimb of any vertebrate.
And I believe there's already a thread for this, just with an expanded scope.

No I wouldn't because they never have to in the show. There's a million and two variations of exclamation phrases that you have at your disposal, you don't need to use the ones that're most popular for humans.

(sage because this is a silly thread)
>> No. 109552
>Would you use "Oh my god" or "Oh Celestia/ Oh Luna" in your fic?

I would definitely not use the former; the latter I personally would avoid, but it doesn't bother me as a reader when a fanfic uses the royal pony sisters as deific stand-ins (at least, for exclamations).

>would you use buck or fuck?

Neither. There are cleverer and frankly, better exclamations to give your characters than "buck," including a number from the show itself: horseapples, ponyfeathers, etc. The latter is right out in any story which proports to share its setting with the show.

>arms or forelegs?

Forelegs would be my preference, but seeing an author use arms doesn't bother me--I admit that forelegs is kind of clunky (hands, however, is right out)

Be stunned, be dazzled, as The Great and Powerful Trixie graces this thread with her presence. Trixie was asked to open a new Training Grounds, but The Great and Powerful Trixie does not get asked; Trixie decides what Trixie does. And while she does not usually grace the common folk with her presence, today The Great and Powerful Trixie is feeling benevolent. Be grateful, my enthusiastic little admirers, that Trixie has decided that she will donate her time to such a common task. So behold! as THE GREAT AND POWERFUL TRIXIE PROCLAIMS THIS THREAD TO BE OPEN! That Trixie gets paid and requires a replacement cart has nothing to do with her decision

Synopsis: In a farm town by the name of Marizona, Carrot Top is called to action from an old friend to be a miracle worker when the crops suddenly stop growing. The prejudiced and close-minded townsponies have grown hostile towards strangers -- and even towards themselves -- as a result from months dealing with a food shortage and the financial collapse of their town that is now looming over their heads. Will the orange mare find a solution to save the town? When worse comes to worst, will the friendship with her old friend hold, or will it perhaps grow into something more? Learn about the tale of Carrot Top and how she was able to live beyond her tomb.

Requests: Can I get some help for this story? I sent it to EqD and the pre-reader stated:

-Comma splice

Synopsis: "It feels like an eternity now, since I began to write this.
I remember to have a peaceful and happy - although weird - life.
I'm not sure if it is gone now. I just, don't believe we will make it through.
Now, we are finally reaching the end of our journey, the end of all, and I will make them pay for what they have done.
I don’t care who they think they are, I don’t care what kind of power they hold.
I don’t care that they are gods and have the control of an army of undead.
But I just hope, my friends make it through, that we find victory.

Apologies for the delay on reply I was getting the story run by my editor once more before sending in the application. I'm always logged onto fimfcition so most times Im not really online.

You shouldn't bother with people like this. I'd assume it's a lot more effort on your part to edit it into the HTML than it is for some lazy writer to delete their thread and remake it with a hint of independance. You don't (or at least shouldn't) have to cover for poor workmanship.

It's not that much effort to look at a post, look at the sticky, and tell somebody where they went wrong.

I can imagine it getting repetitive, though.

... anyways, this seems to be another case of a drive by fic dropper. I'll lock this one now.

Uhm a quick note, relatively. new to this so if i have happened to break any rules i apologize and would have no qualms about being struck by lightning for my heinous crimes

Fellow Bronies and Pega-sisters (I need to rant on this real quick scroll down some if you don't care. This term makes no sense. by being a brony, essentially the combo of Bro and pony, we could be any three of the pony races. But a pegasister is locked in as a Pegasus. could we seriously not find something less constricting?)

Done, Any way i have a little problem for those that feel they can help. see I'm writing a story about a stallion going to Ponyville. (I can hear you all rolling your eyes. i get it not very original but hey. also anyone find it weird that on a site dedicated to ponies that Ponyville is spell checked wrong) I've already written the first chapter which is here for those who want to help.


Any way I've already sent my little stallion of to a factory where it will be decided weather he's interesting enough not to be turned into glue. This is in no way shape or form a request for anything about the story.

You see I've written my self into a fair amount of corners. Before i can move on to having individual adventures with each of the mane 6 i need to introduce them. so far I've done Twilight, Rarity, and Applejack. Originally it was easy to arrange the meetings. Twilight was giving the tour, needed to stop by Applejack's, Ghostwriter (The OC's name) needed new clothes so of course Rarity. Now comes the tricky part. Due to a promise of cake from Ghost to his companion, the group is headed to Sugarcube corner. But what do i do after. Fluttershy and R.D. don't have 'places of work' so arranging a meeting is a little tough. any ideas fellow writers?

Not sure how I missed this last night while I was lurking here but I think I’ll jump in.
Oh hey there Dragon… Wait a second. Dragon Rage?! Here… not as a mod… I… well… No matter, you had the same reaction when I first came to /gala/. So… yeah, moving on.

Dragon’s right, Applejinx is the pony to see, and thank goodness he’s back too; a week ago you’d have been out of luck. My thread would also be of help to you but my queue’s closed at the moment I’m working on that So I’ll just offer you some advice here.

The first bit is to clean up that OP. This is a writing board, so pretty much everypony in here is a hardcore to the bone grammar Nazi. If you want some help or respect around here, you should type your post in a text editing software such as MS Word, Publisher Pro, or other program with spelling and grammar checks.

Now to Pinkie, yes she’s random, but you need to be careful with that. If you can look close enough, there is a very simple minded logic – and yes, it is in fact logic – that flows throughout her words and actions. Have you ever read Amelia Bedilia? It’s a children’s book series. The gist of it was that she took everything very literally, as does Pinkie Pie, but Pinkie makes more of a joke out of it. You do remember Fluttertree I hope. If not, go back and watch over a barrel again. This is a very good episode for absorbing Pinkie Pie. She took Dash’s sarcasm seriously, and literally, she is very… naïve in that respect, for lack of a better word. Rather everything is a game to her. She’s almost like an innocent little child, who knows how to get serious only when it’s absolutely necessary. Pinkie loves to have fun in any way she can, and above a

I compleatly forgot about it. that means it would be really hard to use her for future event.

See I had this part lined up where Ghost blows up the library. Pinkie was supposed to be there but wouldn't Pinkie Sense tell her of possible explosions?

I wanted her to be there because of some jokes, but the more i think, there seems no possible excuse!

Actually, has Pinkie had an itchy ear as Pinkie sense? Now that i think about it, i could make one that she's never had before, which would be better when the explosion happens because she can be like, "OHHH so _________ means a big boom" ... work in progress. Though should it be a combo or just one thing? hmm...

Thank you for your help. As i said to Dragon Rage, you are a pony among ponies. Thank you.

#Single fic #Sad
By: PinkiePiePants (my pseudonym on FiMFiction)

Synopsis: Pinkie Pie was the quintessential extrovert. She adored being able to spend time with lots of ponies and make new friends with all of them. Along with this fantastic energy, she genuinely wanted to make other ponies smile. What despondency arises when she sees that her friends don't see her for who she truly is?


This story was written as a healthy, cathartic way to process some feelings I've been having due to events in my long and recent past. Pinkie Pie was the main character because I have much in common with Pinkie Pie's personality. This story expresses a desire to be heard and understood; something I identify with very closely. I look forward to a solid discussion.

While I personally disagree with this threads existence, (For reasons not personal to the author or the story itself) I won't push for deletion. I still highly recommend you bring this story to a review thread, though, as like I said it could use some work. The first paragraph is where I found the instance of showing, not telling, and I can imagine there's quite more minimal errors within that will hinder the quality of your fic.

Story recommendations, as long as they're made in accordance with the sticky's standards, are allowed. However, bumping them for attention is grounds for locking/deletion. Since these threads tend to sink fairly quickly, it's usually not a problem. I'd also like to remind people,
that a thread should not be bumped unless the contribution is both on-topic and actually provides something to the thread (so, no bumping for chit-chat or "I lick dis stery").

Pinkie, you made a solid OP and actually got the tags right. That's all that's really required. However, while this thread is technically fine, know that you're in the wrong place to get sympathy and attention. If you want someone to show you how to become a better writer, well, there's a reason why EqD links to us. Feel free to submit your story to a (or at least, no more than two at any one time) review thread. Just know that if you do so, you'll have to delete this one, since the sticky stipulates that you can't be looking for reviews and showcasing at the same time; after all, if it's still being improved, then it's not ready to be displayed for the world to see, eh?

Hey Mister I'm-Smarter-Than-Everyone-And-Have-To-Constantly-Prove-It-To-Myself-By-Referring-People-To-The-Rules (you know who you are)! I've checked the rules and know I'm allowed to post this type of thread, so don't waste your time with any pseudo-academic gibberish.

Hello good foalks of Ponychan! You all appear to be a savvy writers (well, most of you). I am a writer of questionable mastery and known by most as the Calculus King of the West Coast.

I am currently considering creating a story about the Mane 6 as fillies. The story will be a crossover with the Divine Comedy--yes, the ponies will be going through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. However, the story will not be grimdark; I want to take a comedic stance on the whole affair with bits of drama thrown in. The Afterlife will be ponified. What does that mean? I'm glad I forced you to ask! Satan will be Discord, ponies will be tortured, and Celestia will reside in the Primum Mobile.

So, how far am I in? Well:

Plot: Mostly unwritten
Characters: Undeveloped
World: Mostly constructed, but only because Dante did a lot of the work for me.

Hmmm...sounds like quite the interesting concept. I might be persuaded to assist you on your project, but I would need further details on the matter, as I don't wish to commit to project that is far too large to tackle at the moment, as I'm currently attempting to overhaul "Equestria Noir" write its 'foil' story "Paz" and attempting to complete several other smaller stories, including re-writes of "Salty Shores" and "Closer to heaven"; all stories already posted on EqD.

Be aware as well that, though I am familiar with the 'divine comedy' I've only read parts of it, never fully completed the piece (even though I carry a cope of it on my flash drive). So if and when further details are given, and they strike as more than appealing, then I'll give the piece thorough read and assist you. All I'll ask in exchange is some assistance with my own work.

So, do have ourselves a deal? If so, just shake the hand of this blasphemer.

PS: after this message, I will go offline due to work. So, you'll have to forgive if my reply arrives in a delayed fashion.

Ive always had this itch to write a story every now and again, but I just don't have the skill to do it. At all. My grammar is shot, I cant move a story in a direction that makes scene, and ive always received bad comments on anything my hands have put into words.

No other can make you write better, you need to read, write, and take the criticism rather than quit because of it.

Hello Octavia,

I originally wrote this for the FimFiction Ferbruary Write Off.  I have since spent a great deal of time polishing it up and would now like to have it properly reviewed, with the ultimate goal of getting posted in EQD (I know, that's a pretty ambitious goal!)  BTW I selected your review thread because you mentioned an interest in poetry.

1.) Tags: Comedy/Slice-of-Life
2.) Title: The Vacation Crew
3.) Synopsis:  Seeing that Princess Luna is feeling unhappy, Celestia suggests she take a vacation among 'normal ponies of Equestria'.  Luna seeks out Twilight Sparkle to be her vacation companion, at which point Pinky Pie drops in and somehow gets the entire Mane Six involved.  What they all have yet to realize is how badly the Princess needs their help.
4.) Link:  http://www.fimfiction.net/story/11702/The-Vacation-Crew
5.) Ponies: Luna, Mane Six, Spike, Cutie Mark Crusaders.
6.) Complete (7 chapters)

You'd think they'd at least wait for a response. Oh well. Locking this thread for now.

OP, if you'd like to discuss reopening this thread, please contact me at [email protected], okay?

You know what I love most about this board, besides the numerous amazing reviewers who willingly read trough my tripe and tear it to shreds? It's a great place to hang out. The other boards here have so many people who come and go, but /fic/ seems to have a predictable parade of regulars.

So, in the vein of friendship that brought us here, I thought it'd be nice to get to know one another. I know that most are hesitant to share personal info on the internet, but I think this could be fun. Just tell us a little about yourself. Where you're from, how old you are, things like that.

Now, since threads not about writing are forbidden here, and for good reason, also tell us how you got into writing. Who is your favorite author, favorite book? Who inspires you? Why do you write? I'll start.

Yes, it's a CAB. I'm not infantry, so no blue cord.

At last! Somepony has discovered a loophole in the system. I love loopholes, except of course when they’re directed at me. What’s up pony?

Name: Oh… My name? Yes, well… I go by many names, But the one that’s used least often is, Ben.
Age: I am 19 years, 10 days, and 16 hours old. I’ve been counting, not really.
Hometown: West Milford NJ
Occupation: High School Graduate, college level Student

Favorite Book: I Can Hear the Mourning Dove by James Bennett

I first got into writing In High School English class. At the end of my freshmen year, I was assigned a writing prompt, and it turned into a bigger story than I thought. I’ve since lost the original draft, but I still remember the story frame, so if I ever had the time I suppose I could write it again. That was back when I was all about dragons. Currently, I write simply to rid my mind of the ridiculous ideas that run rampant through it. I give them structure, and they become more tolerable.

I’m not very popular, and I blame my High School for being dumb and not allowing me to take advanced writing classes even though I passed every requirement they set for me, but I try my best, and always keep an open mind to new information. I also write for my readers. Few as they are I wish solely to give them an enjoyable story, although I’m better at sad than anything else. My inspiration comes in many forms. Sometimes ideas spring into my head purely out of nowhere, although some would argue that they simply have to come from somewhere. I’ve also been inspired by songs, and art, and other all sorts of things.

#Author #Collection #Requests
The last thread I made went well, and I decided to take the idea to fimfiction. I'm still going to write minifics based on ideas you ponies give me, but this time I'm going to plug my fimfiction account in the OP, yay!


>I will write a fic based on a song, a picture, a prompt, a Storyforge-esque idea, or a bit of headcanon.
>The length will be somewhere between "haiku" and ~1000 words.
>The format will be what I feel like but you can request one.
>I don't have any content restrictions.
>For obvious reasons I tend not to painstakingly proofread these, but I do take pride in them.
>Feel free to snipe from here and write someone's idea, but link it if you do.

Hey guys!

I updated with-- well, nothing that anyone requested, but some random things that I thought belonged in this collection. Enjoy! Or don't, that's your right.
>> No. 105309

Another update just went up. This one isn't a request so much as a fun prompt I stumbled across and couldn't pass up...
>> No. 107968
I wrote something that I meant to be a joke entry to the /fic/ write-off and added it to my shortfic anthology.


What I'm starting on now... isn't ponychan appropriate. All the same, I'll be happy to keep my eye on this thread for more microfic suggestions.
