    EFNW 2015 Pre-Con Contest

    Everfree Northwest's Weekly fic Recommendations #26


    The Everfree Northwest Convention, known for having one of—if not the—strongest writing tracks in the MLP fandom, is back with another great writing contest! Last year’s EFNW writing contest had over 75 entries with a combined total of 30,000 views in their first month, which we're pretty proud of. We gave away some great prizes too.

    This year we're back, and we’re better than ever, ready to pit authors against each other in an exciting contest to see who can best portray friendship via the written word. We’re looking for writers who want to have fun and who enjoy winning awesome prizes.

    Some of the prizes include: a customized high quality pen and pen holder declaring you an award winning author, patches telling people your place in the contest, a bookbag, an interview to be posted by EFNW's media team, various gift cards, tons of swag, and more.

    The Everfree Northwest Writing Contest will accept entries from March 1st until 11:59 pm PDT on March 24th. This contest is open to everyone. To enter, you should write a 1,000-3,000 word story that had not been posted before the contest started. You do not have to attend the con on May 29-31 in order to enter. Do note, we will have a different contest, our 2-hour Iron Authors Competition, during the con itself.

    Find out more details, such as the theme, at the Everfree Northwest blog. As always, keep up-to-date on the latest Everfree Northwest news by visiting our website, viewing our FIMFiction account and group, liking us on Facebook, and following us on Twitter and Tumblr.


    Did you know, Everfree Northwest scours FIMfiction in order to bring three recommends a week? In fact we recently posted our twenty sixth post. We try to focus on enjoyable lesser known fics. If you know of some good lesser known fics by authors other than yourself feel free to let us know.

    Adverts

    As many of you know, we've been having issues with redirecting ads. Unfortunately these are largely out of my hands, and it's entirely Adsense's fault that these are getting through and they're doing an extremely poor job of dealing with it. This is an issue on tons of other big sites right now like tvtropes and neogaf, it's across the whole network.

    Consequently, while I probe adsense for why this isn't fixed, I've disabled all display ads on the site, which means the only ads will be text and image ads which in theory should not have any javascript whatever, and therefore zero possibility for redirecting ads. I don't know if the changes go through instantly but hopefully redirecting ads should be gone right now.

    Apologies for the inconvenience, I am as annoyed by this as you guys because it's very damaging to the site!

    edit: Looks like we still have flash ads right now, so it might just take a little while for these changes to go through.

And here we go! Time to explore!


The group, Crack Ship's Inc, has initiated it's first prompt contest!

At Crack Ships Inc, we believe that anyone and anything can fall in love. After all, Friendship is Magic is all about making friends, and it's not a huge leap from friendship to romance.

And if anyone can become friends, then anyone can fall in love.

For the prompt contest, six arbitrarily chosen ponies are presented, and contestants must write a ship fic about two or more of those ponies.

Closing date is the 23rd of April, after which a community vote opens up to decide the winner.


Good day fellow FIM FANS,

Recently our group, Fan Fiction Documentary, launched on this site announcing a FIM Fan Fiction Documentary in the works. We hope to bring a quality 40-45 minute documentary to the Brony community sometime this summer. We are aiming for 7-8 guests with a variety of backgrounds, but if you want to find out more just take the link to our faq which will be updated this weekend with a list of guests and a more defined focus based on feedback gained in the past week.

We will also be opening a discussion board where we can keep track of talent including those interested in contributing works of art including music, pictures of all sorts, video, and of course listing their stories for consideration. We won't be able to use even half the authors we have, but we have something in the works to show just how many quality fics we have in this community.

I would also like to take this time to congratulate FIMFICTION.net for being the second most popular fan fiction site on the web, second only to http://archiveofourown.org which has 11700 fandoms as of today. FIMFICTION.net is also about tied for most hits as a Brony site, and is in the process of passing EQD for hits as we speak.

Shower knighty and his staff with praise below. They have all accomplished a lot in the past few years and brought us a lot of joy including making this project possible with tools like the group function.

So thank you Fimfiction, we hope to honor you and and the rest of the community soon.


Tropers is a new group dedicated to the TVTropes wiki; the internet's favorite trope catalogue and life-ruiner.

Our group may not be large right now, but we have folders for both troper-written and troper-recommended works, and we have already done a Fic Secret Santa. The more members the more discussion we can have, and the more events we can arrange!

Don't be afraid to stop by, whether you're familiar with the site or not. A valid TVTropes handle is required to add fics to folders, but trust us when we say those aren't hard to get.


The World-Building Alliance has announced the April Story Prompt!

Now, I bet some of you were wondering why we decided to delay this month’s idea until the second of the month.  The simple answer being what happened yesterday, with gold memberships, retirements, promotions, and all manner of general silliness.  We decided it would be best to wait for a day than get caught up in the middle of all that :twilightsmile:

Now, onto the fun part.  For this month, the idea is a simple one:  Take a trait of your main character, and crank it up to eleven.  An extremely friendly minotaur, maybe?  Or a dragon with insatiable curiosity, perhaps.  Go nuts, we want to see some wacky combinations out there.

If you’re after some pony examples, we could give Twilight as a super-smarty pants.  Or maybe Fluttershy, with her maxed out shyness stat.

Now, seeing as this is a more character-driven prompt, we'll be fiddling with the weighting of the categories to represent that.  For this month, World Building will be less important than your ability to create and convincingly flesh out this OC.

For more information follow THIS LINK


American Bronies

Are you from the country that kicks the most ass, while simultaneously maintaining a below par public education system? Then this group is for you!

Come here to celebrate all things uniquely American, from the artery clogging, early death sentence inducing deliciousness that is american cuisine, to the vast and unequaled power of our military, via one of the largest budgets in the world!

It is as you might expect, it's for those who live in territory claimed by US and A to join and exercise those free speech rights. We don't really do anything special other than talk ponies and news concerning 'Merica.


Polyamory (Contains NSFW/Mature Fics)

Because Pony x Pony x Ponies is best ship.

A group for everyone that likes to see more than two ponies getting together.  Accepts both clean and clop stories, simply place them in the relevant folders.  

A prime example of what we are looking for is The Teacher, The Sorceress, and The Wonderbolt.  

This group is not meant to overshadow other groups dedicated to specific polyamorous relationships, and as such will not have folders dividing every possible shipping combination of three ponies or more.  I believe that the whole point of polyamorous shipping is the open, convention-breaking feel, so adding regimented groups seems odd.  These shippings are allowed, but they will not be segregated.  

If you happen to be interested in specific poly ships, RariJackDash, AppleDashLight, Twilunestia, and Twilunestiance are at your disposal.

We encourage any and all members to search for stories with polyamory or even polyamorous elements.  There isn't much out there, and of course we would all like it if the idea was spread out even more.  

Hopefully, more groups will be founded (maybe even by you, yes YOU) in order to spread the message of free love and swinging across FimFic and Bronydom.



Aaand that's it for now!

Remember, if you have a group that is organizing something for the whole community, or has just been created, or has been around but has a unique concept, you might want to PM me with the details! Be sure to write about 200 words minimum describing what your group or event is around and provide as much detail as you can!

>>984391 It's a site post. Everyone gets informed when there's a site post. Also, this is not about a single group, it's a blog-post promoting several groups.

#15 · 102w, 6d ago · 1 · 1 ·

Might I submit my Anti-Fimfiction Group for next month? We are a group that feels "Bronies" must be stopped. They have infiltrated our youth and are engaging our sons and daughters in psychological warfare, converting them to hateful pedophiles and dooming them to eternal virginity, thus ending procreation for the human race. The horse scoundrel site FimFiction is one of their main tools in consistently violating the principles of free speech and fair trade. Therefore our group's overarching goal is for all "Bronies" to be hunted down and dealt with.

We don't have much going on at the moment, but are on the lookout for more decent folk so we can get the resistance rolling :pinkiesmile:

#16 · 102w, 6d ago · 2 · 1 ·

>>984575 I honestly can't tell if you're actually being serious or just trolling to extreme measures...

#17 · 102w, 6d ago · · ·

>>984354

I have. Quaint, to say the least. Definitely not a runner's climate. Nor a runner's society. With the whole, "cover all of your skin, but hands and face is okay." They did not enjoy seeing a skinny-ass 'Murrican running bareback through the city.

TVTropes can suck a dick.

There are so many in its mouth already, but I'm sure there must be some room for one more.

>>984979 it happens more often than you think :twilightsmile:

>>985406 I don't know who you are either! So I guess that puts us on even grounds, right? If you want to know who I am you can either check the Staff page or visit my own. Anyway, if you are sort of wondering why you might have received a warning about this post, it's because site-posts, which moderators and administrators write, get announced to all users. Such as site updates, how-to blogs, interviews, Seattle's Angel's Reviews and Group Updates.

I just want to say that while the motivation for a 'fanfiction documentary' is in the right place, it is possibly one of the worst ideas I've ever heard.
