    Groups Post - April 2016

    Groups Posts are a monthly group advertisement blog open to anyone who wants a signal boost. If you're interested in having your group advertised in one of these, send me a PM with the name of the group, a link to its front page, and a brief description of what the group is for. I'll copy this directly into the post, so write it like you're trying to tell other people about why they should join or pay attention to your group - anything up to around 150-ish words is fine.

    The Pony Prisoner

    Welcome to your home from home, Your Village.

    This is the Group for all stories based around or intentionally similar to the 1960s psychological thriller “The Prisoner”, starring Patrick McGoohan, wherein people with particular knowledge disappear away to the isolated "the Village", a forced utopia of mindless following meant to convince them to spill their secrets, but more than equipped to break their minds a hundred different ways if they resist.  (Stories taking a few hints from Starlight Glimmer are also allowed.)

    Whatever the sinister intention behind your Village or its substitute, if your character suddenly wakes up in a new town of forced happiness and complacency or is given a number to replace their name, this is the Group for your story.

    “Be seeing you.”

    Earth Pony OCs Rule

    This group is made for earth pony OC's, that are the mane pony, or play a big role in a multi OC story.

    This group is also a call to arm's for earth pony activist/lover's.

    Who see alicorns, unicorns and pegasuses as over used in the fandom, so come along my fellow ponies,

    let us show them the true strength, resistance and engineering of the earth ponies,

    So Telly Ho!

    Candy Mare it's a club for fans of the character created by Knackerman and also a place for people to post their own stories that are to do with horror, gore and general creepyness so why not join our little candy pony family after all life is no fun without a good scare. So post your best scary stories or why not grab a blanket turn off your lights and brows our selection. Hopefully you'll find something good to sink you're teeth into or maybe something might find you good enough to sink it teeth into. Pleasant dreams i hope you don't have a Nightmare Night tonight HAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Filly Fantasy VI is a sequel/spiritual successor to Pony Fantasy VI. The group is for the release and discussion of the project.

    Homeschoolers of Fimfiction

    This group is for homeschoolers!

    In this group you can talk to other homeschoolers and read MLP stories by other homeschoolers!

    Admin Training Academy

    ATA is to help people become a better admin. Simply ATA makes it easier, and faster to learn how to be a good admin.

    Songs From The Heart is a group dedicated to the love of music. Whether it be a story inspired by music or music you love and want to post here. It could be your own music if you want.

    So what you waiting for? Come on in and stay awhile!

    Happily Forever After

    This group is here to put a spotlight on ageless characters and present the idea in a way that isn't sad or depressing, like a lot of stories seem to. You can show the good side of Twilight being an immortal scholar, Celestia leading Equestria forever, or Discord having fun with Fluttershy's great, great, great, great, great grandchildren. If the idea of stories with ageless character being happy interests you, join now.

    Anti-Clopfic Federation

    This groups focus is to stop the wave of clopfics that plagues the featured box day in and day out. Specifically geared towards those typical, easy effort clopfics that get featured for the author doing little. Some clopfics can have good content, and should be featured. Enough featured clopfics, we say.

    100,000 Words

    This group was created for stories with word counts beyond 100,000! Feel free to join and add fics that meet this. We're always open to new stories, and discussions can be started in the Forum about these fics and their sheer word count power!

    That's it for this month. Send in your group ads if you want them to appear in May!

Hey all, it's been a while. Remember polls? They are definitely a thing that we can do. Allow me to refresh your memory - a while back we ran a poll on what your favorite secondary characters are; you can check out a summary of the answers here and the raw results here. Nice to see my girl Spitfire got her due.

But now it's time for a new poll! A poll not about the show or the characters, but about you. You fabulous, beautiful fanfic-loving bronies. And pegasisters. If you're into that. Which, come to think of it, is a good question, so answer that too!

Be cool in the comments, people - "love and tolerance" isn't just a good idea... it's the law.

(What? Really? Well it should be.)

L & T are definitely founding principles for the fandom, at least, in my eyes it is. Granted I came from the /b/rony threads circa 2011, so I'm not sure how shared my perspective is.

"A few times a year" should have been options in the questions regarding frequency of types of fics one has read or written. As that would have been far more accurate when answering how often I read original fiction.

My name is Ben, for Bennett, but all the black kids call me Benjamin.  I'm a 16 year old high school student with seemingly no future.  I'm failing school and I don't have many prominent skills.  I'm slightly sociopathic, and I'm an asshole.  I sit in my room all day dividing my time between games and FiM.  Everyday I try to think about my future and I can't think of anything.

But despite all that, I have a large group of friends, and I remain optimistic in front of them and my family.  I'm making the best of what I can, and even if I can't get a good job, or get a nice woman, I am determined not to sink into the gutter.  I don't do drugs, I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't cut, I don't pierce, I don't dress black, I don't distance myself, I don't ruin moods, I don't skip class, I don't get in fights, I don't let myself get pushed around though, I don't weep and cry about my life, and I don't believe that I have the worst life possible.

So that's me.:twilightsmile:

There's no option for "none" under "Mobile O.S.", and it's a required field. As the last person in the Western World who does not own a cell phone, I'm offended.:raritywink:

>>1045147 In the trailer of the movie it said "From the creators of Nightmare Before Christmas"....

I can't wait to see these results. But I did find a problem, since I am both a full time student and I work around 20-30 hours a week, but I could only chose to be one or the other. (chose student, but eh).

Hey, I don't have one either.

There should be like, a club.

...Actually, nah, that's a lame thing to have a club about.

>>1045134 Uhh... I might sound a bit cranky, but really, why do I need to hear that? I'm just not really interested, nor are anyone else here likely to be. Can't we just all stay anonymous and have fun on the internet, instead of sharing our sad life stories?

#29 · 157w, 1d ago · 3 · ·

As I see it it's more like the Pirates Code:

"Love and Tolerate" is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.:moustache:

#30 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·


From the director of Nightmare Before Christmas.

Oh, yeah, sorry RBD this is completely unrelated to the blog:applejackunsure:

It's cool.

Fun fact! Tim Burton didn't direct The Nightmare Before Christmas; Henry Selick did.

#36 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·


I was worried the question would get too finicky and fine-grained dealing with all the possible permutations of studentry and employment, so I just kept it simple and figured people would select which one they felt more strongly about/took up more of their time.

#37 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1045187 He didn't direct it, true, but he wrote it. I actually didn't know he wasn't the director too until now though.

>>1045174>>1045164 That was Henry Selick who directed Nightmare not effing Burton who only PRODUCED it! :facehoof:

>>1045187 Fo' Shizzle? Well, Tim Burton worked on both anyway.

What I was working towards is >>1045147 was correct; Tim Burton had nothing to do with Coraline.

#45 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1045211 Even though his name is not in Coraline's credits as I pointed out to you?

#46 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1045215 Oh. I just wanted to give Burton a bit of credit though. I didn't realize my favorite Burton movie wasn't even directed by him before you said it. I felt the poor guy deserved the mention.

#47 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1045219 Huh. Doesn't matter anyway, it's my favorite movie nonetheless.

It is kinda funny; I never paid attention myself until a few years ago. Poor Henry Selick!

#50 · 157w, 1d ago · 6 · ·

Just a heads up in case you don't know him, the man who wrote Coraline is Neil Gaiman and that guy is perhaps the most brilliant author alive today, or at least that I know of. His short stories in particular are pure gold... Just wanted go get that out there.
