So Jake starts narrating the story of how he, Finn, and Princess T-Rex ended up in Equestria, and their most excellent and audacious escapades, not just in the Celestial Kingdoms, but in all of planet Equis.

You know, as much as we like to refer to the recommendation/request general. I think we should start allowing threads like this. I dunno. We're more of a workshop than a showcasing site, but we could at least discuss the atrociousness or grandeur of a story before sending the author packing. I wonder if we can't turn this board into more of a library than an editor's grotto. This could be the corner of the building where we discuss pony scribblings rather than shredding them or banishing them to the moon. Sort of a creative commonplace.

We have always allowed threads like this (I had one myself, back in the day, and the old EoP threads kinda count), but we like to warn authors that they generally get ignored. And I think there's been a bit of a drive towards making this a bookclub board. I read way too much ponyfic, so I'm definitely on board for that, in any case.

As for OP: I like me some Adventure Time. Will take a look at some point.

This is an author showcasing his story, not a user recommending it. Ergo, it doesn't fall under the Recommendation thread's purview.

Also, he did everything right. Even the tags. Gotta respect that.

Gee, thanks! I came to this site on a recommendation from a friend. I saw that things were kind of regimented, but, being a bit sort on time, just read the explicit rules and didn't investigate the unwritten ones. I hope I haven't made some faux-pas.

I suppose I should have specified I was the author.

EDIT: Should I have used "sage" in the email section for this kind of comment?

I like this guy.
Eh, with how dead /fic/ is, I don't think it really matters at this point. As a general rule of thumb, though, use sage unless your comment significantly contributes to the thread's topic. Thoughts on a story, posting a new chapter, something like that.
>> No. 126230
>>126229 Okay, got that.

Also, dead? Why is it dead? Fanfiction saturation? Too many alternative verses? Too many origin stories for the Princesses? Do we have a thread for The Immortal Game?

Anyway, back on topic, I'm really looking forward to writing more of this story. Entering Equestria with an Adventure Time mindset... (deep voice) the possibilities are endless... :evilgrin:

People go to FiMFiction and EqD to get their stories, so showcasing here is a bit of a lost cause. /fic/ on Ponychan used to be geared towards providing reviews and general story improvement discussion, but the vast majority of the main contributors moved to MLPchan's /fic/ ( http://mlpchan.net/fic/index.html ).

We still have lurkers here, such as Ion, Azusa and myself, but Ion's right: most of us up and left.

Keep it up and I might give you a review. Unlike most other times I say that, it's a gift, not a threat (I tend to only give reviews to the shittiest stories when the author posts a thread along the lines of "Dis is mai 1 st stery plz reeview k thx bai").

You know, I wonder how the events of this episode will impact this story. I mean, discord has been enabled, and the Kingdom of Ooo is remarcably Discord-compatible. On the other hand, the Ice King might find that affection he so desperately needs in Equestria. Maybe we're looking at a permanent exchange? I mean, I'd love to throw the poor Ice King a bone; even the characters of his own show think he's a C-lister!

As a matter of fact, being immortal, he might even be able to actually find himself a legit Princess, one who has just as much trouble socializing...

I see that my LuNice Quing idea is leaving people rather cold... guess I'd better throw that traumatizing thought in the vault... aaaand it's gone.

I have posted the story on fimfiction, and reworked the description, giving a more precise idea of where I intend to go with this story. Here:

The AT cast wrote a self-insert collab fimfic. They all had their own ideas on how it should have gone. These ideas weren't compatible. Beautiful, messed/up, utter chaos ensued. From that primordial soup rose something viewtiful.

I also gave it a new title: "Fim Fic Fight!" I'm still not sure if catchy or just stupid.

Also, I'm rather chagrined by the lack of views and reviews.

Edit: sorry for the doublepost. I thought pressing "cancel" before the post was finished sending would allow me to edit it without having it sent. I was wrong.

>>126333 Well, tt's an Adventure Time fic, so one should expect a globawful amount of made-up words. And sexual innuendo. And references to drugs. I didn't come up with THAT one, that's from the Viewtiful Joe games, but I love to pimp it whenever I can, aaaand this doesn't seem to be the right time for that... as usual.

Regardless of your intent, the very existence of your message makes it clear to me that some people might infer from that description that I cannot spell.

Of course, to reach that guess, they'd have to believe I'm not even skilled enough to use a spell-checker and make "Rouge Angles Of Satin" mistakes like the AVERAGE newbie. Spell-checkers are such a basic precaution that, when meeting blatant nonstandard spellings, there's a pretty good chance they're intentional. But I suppose there's enough fanfic writers that are worse than the average newbie, that it can be hard to tell.

So, when using my beloved "viewtiful", the loss (some readers thinking "this writer is an EXTREME idiot, let's ditch this story" or worse, "this writer is trying to be clever in a way that will have him mistaken for an extreme idiot, which makes him even MORE of an idiot!") outweighs the gain (some readers thinking "LOL, that was clever and funny, let's see if the whole story's like this!").

TL;DR I'll go and correct that pronto.

*sigh* There's still so much I need to learn that, effectively, I truly AM a fool...

Also, Viewtiful Joe rules, but I think Metal Gear Rising is about to be even more viewtiful. Forgive my heresy. :P

>>126344 Gotta love that chiaroscuro. So stark! So dynamic and dramatic! Compare and contrast with Adventure Time's flat, soft, rounded art (to the point that often people have no joints in their limbs!), and the incredibly cutesy way in which some outright DISTURBING things are depicted. It's like a graphic kid-friendly variation of American Psycho; everything is treated as normal and casual and unremarkable and quite often that everything either makes no sense or is horrifying if you even stop to think of it.

Maybe the ponies wouldn't freak out after all, if they're surrounded by people who act like everything that's going on is perfectly okay and not PTSD-worthy.
