Welcome one and all to the nineteenth edition of one the longest running threads on /fic/! All are welcome!

[Fluffy] - Nothing serious, mostly cute.
[Fuzzy] - A real d'aw scene for the heart.
[Snuggly] - Hugs, peck on the cheek, etc.
[Tender] - Kisses, lying down together.
[Romantic] - Kisses w/ tongue, massages.
[Cheeky] - Moaning, overly massaging wings, hooves, etc.
[Saucy] - Very, VERY suggestive.
[Whoa!] - This goes as far as describing actual sex and CANNOT BE POSTED ON PONYCHAN.
Please mark all fics containing content inappropriate for ponychan as such if you are going to advertise them in this thread. Thank you.

Hurry, new topic finally!

Sadly, I don't have anything new to post for people to get hyped up about. Well, I do have a fic in the works, but it's not what I would call a sensual fic, so it's not really fit for this topic.

It's not clopfic, either. Sorry to disappoint there.

Reposting old fics sound fun. Lemme give it a try.

Here's Good Clean Fun once more, a fic starring school-colt you and Sweetie Belle taking a bath together. Rating is [Fuzzy], so no worries if you're squeamish about the whole "underaged romance" thing.

Just wanted to post that I've finally finished the alternative ending to my first story. I still can't believe how well received it's been because these ponies have definitely been through the ringer in this one.

So, If you like romance in the second pony perspective and do not have an aversion to a bit of sadness and heartbreak in a your fiction, take a look at it.


Be wary, since it's hosted on Fimfiction, the 502s might get you.

Also, pic is partially related, later on.

...Well, kinda fitting, considering I just happened to have something involving said unicorn. TimeBomb0 and I managed to get our entries into the latest 'Sexty Minute Ponies' tumblr, and mine just happened to be (at least, in my opinion) SFG-worthy.

The prompt for the aforementioned tumblr on Sunday was as follows: The first morning of the honeymoon for Rarity and her special somepony.

I did that earlier today, and it was great.

Timebomb also did a good one for that tumblr (that was a bit more risque, but not over the top.)

I'm currently reading through all of the others as well. It's really nice to see how many different ways a writer can go with a single idea as a starting point.

I also decided to take on today's prompt. It was a lot of fun to be under the knife like that, and I think that you other SFG authors should try it sometime, if you haven't already. I'll post it on FimFiction once the tumblr posts it.

I know how you feel, there.

Anyways, yeah I did write something for that blog on their Rarity prompt. I won't post it here because it's a bit too descriptive for Ponychan standards, but I do feel that I did a good job with the time that I had. I'll be sure to give the next prompt a try (since I ended up not writing anything for the current one.) Nice to see other SFG writers throwing their hat into the ring on this, though.
>> No. 113481

You enjoy, Underdogg? I'm actually thinking of building up on that and making in full-on [Whoa!], but CWC (Clop With Content) and posting it on FIMfiction.


Nice entry on Wednesday's prompt, btw. I actually had quite a bit of difficulty on it, but I managed to get something posted. It's not one of my better works, admittedly, but that one, too, I'm thinking of working on.

I do agree with Agarwaen that it is a good writing exercise to take up. You don't necessarily have to post to the Tumblr (you could just write it for yourself), and I love it, simply because it promotes plausible writing (and having content with your clop, but that's another issue not necessarily for this thread). Three of us are (hopefully) going to be normal contributors to this tumblr (I know I'll at least give it a shot), and I hope to see more familiar names there as the prompts come and go.
>> No. 113501

Yes I did enjoy it! Anything with Ratity written by the same guy who did Truth or Dare is bound to be eye-poppingly good. Speaking of that fic, have you considered doing a sequel to truth or dare with you x twilight ? That would be pretty neato
>> No. 113561
>>113481 Thanks.
I was a bit lucky on that one. I didn't originally have the idea for that ending and I was pretty well out of time. I just had a few minutes left when I got an *channeling best Rarity voice* IDEEEAAA~~~~ I posted it on Fimfiction if anyone wants to look at it without having to sort through that tumblr (since most of that stuff is a bit more explicit than what I tend to do.)

I do plan on taking part ever other week or so, but most of my Sundays and Wednesdays are pretty busy.

Still need to make time to read the other Prompt 5 entries, as well.

>> No. 113821
Honestly, it was because I wrote myself into a corner. I'm going to use spoilers in case anyone hasn't read it yet, but I'm talking about just the pattern of events that occur in chapters with only minor hints to anything new from the current chapter.

It was supposed to be two, but the event I set up to happen right after the last chapter was originally the trigger for the second flashback. So I had to combine the flashbacks if I wanted to do them in chronological order.

Well, I currently am writing an AU sequel to 'Truth or Dare', and I'm considering writing a full-on clop chapter when I hit one point. Hit up my FIMfiction profile for it.


Oh, man! Prompt #6 was just PERFECT for me! Had that done in, like, no time flat!
>> No. 113971

I had two separate stories I could have written for Prompt #6. One of them would have required a bit too much writing to cram into a 60-minute flashfic to be any good, so I went with a much more straightforward story.

In any case, it's definitely not gonna get posted here.

Prompt #6? Yeah, if any one of us wrote a fic for that one, it's DEFINITELY not going on here.

The other good news is, I get to read all of the great content from you guys that I've missed. Maybe I'll drop in some reviews too.

Hey, everyone. How are you? Good, I hope.

Anyway, I've got something new for you. It's a little different from the usual fare, and you can find it on my FimFiction user page -
Note that it contains gore material.

(Yes, gore material)
But, you know, I still think you'll like it; it's not your average gore fic, after all.

Title - Sweet Little Lovely : A Gothic Romance
SFG Content Rating - Tender
Synopsis -
Everyone in their sleepy little town knows that Marvelous, the clockmaker, has eyes for only one mare - the beautiful Little Lovely.
But he soon comes to realize that her true beauty is on the inside.
A romantic tale written in the tradition of nineteenth century horror.

Well, I'll try and address for you, the main concern I had when Mr. V was presenting the fic to pre-readers.

As a rule, I avoid [Gore] tags due to unfortunate stories like Cupcakes and Rainbow Factory. Why would I want to read stories where characters who I've grown emotionally attached to are killed and tortured for some horrible reason?

Well that's the problem with [Gore] tags, they're not all that informative. With authors revealing as little as possible in their summary (in order to hide the amazing twists and reveals of their story) a [Gore] tag could be anything.
It could be anywhere between a fight scene where the Big Bad is thrown against a wall having his head cracked open, to the graphic description of a torture scene, complete with hacked off body parts.

Sweet Little Lovely is neither of these, it is a Romantic story where the theme and moral that love transcends the limitations presented in the story are upheld in the fines of form, given the circumstances.
I wish I did not have to be so secretive in explaining why I can't telly you why it's not so bad, but I know Mr. V and Mr. V likes to keep his story secret.

The most I can tell you is that the gore isn't all that bad and it's not in the slightest bit cruel.

>> No. 120642

I second what Armada said. At first, I was turned off in the same way that he was. Then, I read said Armada post and decided to give it a whirl.

I was very pleased that I did. The romance was romantic, there were scary situations without being needlessly so, and there were some explicit descriptions of gore. It feels like an old classic that I'd never read.

I don't know what to say, other than that I recommend this story very highly.

I just DL'd the old collection. Ah the memories! I wrote some of those stories almost 3 years ago. But someone butchered the formatting and grammar on my "A Bad Nights Sleep" Story. Periods been removed, letters added where they dont make sense, and complete words are either misspelled or missing completely. Oh well. The memories almost bring a tear to me. It reminds me of when the fanbase started. Those virgin days of when the word "Brony" was still new.

Bowling may not be your strong suit, but the Ponyville Bowling League is a chance to hang out with friends every Saturday. Especially Allie Way, who is right at home among the pins and bowling balls.

Coffee, I don't know if you'll see this or not, but I sincerely miss you and the rest of the IRC.

Hope everything's been good and you're still bossin' it up.

Speaking of missing people...

Damn, it's been a while, SFG. #Equestria's still limping about back on Caffie, if any of you guys are still here to notice. We need to start the place back up again, so drop on in if you get the chance, and hopefully we can get the ball rolling again.

Gentlemen, I'm searching for an old fic. One of the first sensual fic's I ever read. The title is resonance. It's a second person(you) x lyra fic. Don't remember who it was by but if anybody could deliver, it would be very much appreciated :D

Check the collections: http://www.fimfiction.net/group/68/sensual-fiction-sfg/thread/9620/collections
Volume 2 seems to have a story called Resonance (and another LyraXYou story). Don't know if it's what you're looking for, but that's what you get for asking someone else to do your dirty work.

These kinds of stories are really delightful. Thanks to you authors who spin us lovely, romantic yarns like these. Almost every time I come to Ponychan, I check this thread to see it's come to life again. Oh, the old days!

I hope people are still writing these. It's a real craft, and I'm terribly envious of the people who can do it.

Every time I come to Ponychan, I see this thread, and the level of detail in the sexiness scale, and it just annoys the crap out of me. It's a form of denial, a desire to see yourself as "better than" the saucier ratings because you're stuck with values of sex being dirty and/or forbidden.

There are only two true distinctions for sex's role: Romance either is or isn't driven primarily by sexual tension, and the story either does or doesn't contain mature elements. Not only that, but I would argue that it's denial (or childish naivite) to create a relationship titled "love" that doesn't have an angle of sexual tension.

That's ASIDE from the fact that I once challenged people to show me fics from here that didn't ride on the appeal of feel-good romantic schlock--or at least that succeeded in high drama and meaningful depth while also hooking readers that way--and they failed.

And the fact that come on what's up with having "a community for" or being "a fan of" the same subject matter over and over and over

And the fact that I actually find a majority of this thread to be low quality, but that's not a legitimate complaint, good on those people for writing. Even if I wish more of them would work on broadening; growing; improving.

I agree that many of them are based on the same idea, are poorly written, and that it can get repetitive. I think that some of my favorite stories in the SFG are the very novel ones by TheGentlemanCreeper, especially "Swing" and "Freudian Slip." I'm not sure if you have read those, or if you'd rather not read them, but they're extremely well developed, satisfying, and I think they are closer to your ideals for a good story.

In any case, a lot of these stories aren't for everybody, and the rating system does seem a little vague and needless to some. I think it works well enough for categorizing the stories on FIMFiction even though the ratings are divided oddly. I wouldn't outright say the rating system encourages elitism in the writers who stay close to [Fluffy], although it might.

For many of the writers in the archives, these threads might have been great practice for fiction writing in general.

Does it bother you that people value sex more than you? That they see it as something more meaningful than you will ever have or be able to do with it? Because, unless you have some sort of issue of that kind, your little affliction seems nothing more than a kid looking at his actions, comparing to better others, and filling guilty.

Oh, and you challenge people to demonstrate to you something you had predispose them to fail based upon your own admitted prior biased? And they didn't somehow destroy those assertions? My, I'm certainly the innate concern you have didn't have anything to do with it.

But hey, between world creation physiological fluff and bad attempts at emotional fluff, I'm sure you can find the fluff here and notice your opinion is just as sickening as your attitude, and worse yet, you are doing nothing but making yourself a nuisance.

Good day, S.

I find that a solid majority of fics in here are samey schlock, which is an opinion I'm allowed to have, and the discussion was perfectly civil before you showed up.

My first statement was much more significant, and you seem to have misread it very badly.

Because I was accusing the bizzarely detailed "rating scale" of being based on something like the prudish values that you're incoherently ascribing to my dislike for this thread. It implies that you want to put warning labels on things like how intense the kissing gets.

Sorry for that disgusting couple of sentences. I'll clarify if I gotta.

It's okay that TacticalRainboom doesn't like the rating scale. I think it's very useful for some people, and I rather like it, too. I had hardly read any wholly second person stories before I saw one of TimeBomb0's tales, and to me, it's a very innovative style. A lot of the plots are hackneyed, but the different spins on them can be fun and cozy. Many of them are truly great.

I'm afraid that my posting here in the first place might have been bad idea. I didn't mean to start a fight, I just wanted to praise some very fine authors. It's awesome that we don't have to agree completely about this group and that we all have different tastes. I probably should've taken my praise straight to the group on FIMFiction, too. Sorry if I have stepped on anyone's toes.

Don't post shit like that for pointless apologies, now I'm torn between wanting to tell you you're overreacting, and wanting to give Applejack a hug.

I also absentmindedly skipped the sticky thread on this board, and so I didn't read that we should "sage" posts unless we have a story or a review to give. My first post was really a trifle, and I'm not sure if it was proper to bump the thread with it.

I think this is the last time I'll post, Tactical. Thanks for the interesting talk.

The... no-saging rule is stupid, so there's no harm in bumping this thread. Plus, you were "giving a review" by the barest sense anyway, on top of asking people who (might) check this board if they were still writing, thus expressing interest, and all in all doing nothing wrong.

I don't know why you were attacked for expressing your opinion (actually, I do, but I probably won't be able to explain it without being more confrontational than this post will be, anyway), but I am sorry that happened to you.

If you have anything else you want to post or comment on in this thread, please do. I'm sure that, if the authors of these stories are still watching, they appreciate your feedback. And if not, maybe you'll invite someone else to have a positive conversation with.

On that note...

Stop. Shitting. On the Sensual Fic General thread.

Just... stop.

See the link in the OP that says "Hide"? Click that. Seriously. Don't even reply to this post. Just click and leave.

Every post of yours in this thread is like watching someone dig themselves deeper into a hole of faux pases, so you need to make like a cliché and quit while you're ahead.
