    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!

If you like good PinkieDash shipping story, look no further! This epic tale brings us along into their dreams and nightmares, as they come closer than they ever expected to be.

[Adventure][Shipping][Tragedy] • 54,300 words

Pinkie Pie's unrequited love for Rainbow Dash reaches a crisis point as she fears the party in her heart has at long last come to an end.

Hit the title for an interview with Butters herself and links to The Party Never Ended on your favorite pony sites, and check out the Vault's Downloads page to grab a copy in your preferred eBook format!

If you're interested in more Butterscotchy goodness and the idea of a mature discussion about sexuality and clopfiction doesn't upset you, check out another interview she did with Doctor Dapples, one of our previous Vault authors. (Fun fact: the good Doctor's interviews with Butterscotch and Coffeebean were part of the inspiration behind including author interviews here at the Vault!)

deviantArtPony Fiction Archive  • FIMFictionEquestria Daily

Where do you live?

Sydney, Australia.

What kind of work do you do? (i.e. are you a student, do you have a career/day job, etc)

I’m an English teacher at a high school.

How did you discover My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? When did you realize you were a fan of the show?

I saw it on 4chan’s comics board /co/. I kept seeing all this fanart of lesbian ponies and I was just taken aback by the sheer cuteness of it all and I had to watch the show that had inspired the images!

Do you have a favorite episode? [Editor’s note: at the time of this interview, the most recent aired episode was May The Best Pet Win.]

Look Before you Sleep - the best character-driven episode in the series so far, in my opinion. Twi became adorkable and not just a grouch, and the Rarity and Applejack ship set sail!

Who is your favorite character based purely on the canon of the show itself? Would your answer change if you considered the fandom in its entirety (i.e. art, fanfiction, memes, etc)?

Pinkie Pie. I don’t think the answer would change if I considered the fandom as a whole (the only fandom I care about is the stuff that is true to the canon characters anyway) - although I do love Derpy (our very own wall-eyed angel!)

How did you come up with your handle/penname?

It literally came to me out of the blue. I’d decided I wanted to write some FiM fanfiction, and I thought to myself - what’s an adorable name that would be appropriate for the writer of cute and sugary stories starring colourful, magical ponies? “Butterscotch Sundae” was literally the first thing that popped into my head, and I went with it.

Have you written in other capacities (other fandoms, professionally, etc)? When did you first start writing?

I’ve dabbled in writing a few times in my life, some serious stuff and also fanfiction (I used to write Lucky Star fanfiction of all things!), but this is the first time I’ve had the discipline to actually write something worthy of recognition within a fandom.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?

Gardening too little. Drinking too much.

Who is your favorite author (published or fanfiction)? Do you have a favorite story or novel?

My favourite author for plot and general mind-fuckery is Philip K Dick. For the quality of prose, either Nabakov or Steinbeck. My favourite novel changes all the time, but at the moment it’s probably Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.

Stephen King believes that every author has an "ideal reader" - the one person who they write for, the one person whose reactions they care about. Do you have one, and if so, who is it?

I have a lot of respect for Stephen King - he’s the one writer who seems to be able to talk about writing with a complete lack of pretentiousness. An ideal reader? I’d have to say it’s a burnt out individual like myself who longs for romance, cuteness and magic in their real life, and for whom the adorable adventures of candy-coloured equines offers them the perfect escape from the “bluh”ness of our own world.

Do you have any tips for aspiring writers, or writers who are struggling with their own stories?

This is an extremely annoying piece of advice that all aspiring and struggling writers get, and I used to hate getting it, but the truth of it cannot be avoided - WRITE. You must write as much as you can, every day, to get yourself into the discipline of producing words. Never, ever be one of those individuals who calls themselves a “writer” and who constantly talks about writing but never does any.

What is your typical writing process? (Do you work through multiple drafts, do you have any prereaders/editors, etc?)

I used to write a handwritten copy, but now I type the first draft straight into a digital document. I think the writing you produce is different when you do it this way, but I haven’t decided how it’s different exactly and whether it produces material that’s better or worse than handwriting. All I know is that it saves an awful lot of typing stuff up, which I hate!

What inspired you to write The Party Hasn’t Ended?

A friend of mine (OK, he’s called Auraion on DA and CANDYBAG on 4chan’s /co/ *shudder*) asked me to write a Pinkie-Dash shipping story.

Did you run into any tough spots or challenges when writing The Party Hasn’t Ended?

Party was originally intended to be a one-shot, ending with Pinkie destroying her secret monthly party for Dash and Dash never learning that she was in love with her. But then I decided that I didn’t want to end it on such a sad note, and wrote another part - and then another - and another, until ended up as more a novel than a fanfic! So I guess the challenge was actually getting the plot to a place where Dash and Pinkie being together made sense, and for that to happen it turns out a lot of drama and adventure had to happen!

When you set out to write The Party Hasn’t Ended, did you have any specific messages or themes in mind?

There is no place so dark that the power of love cannot illuminate the way out.

Where can readers drop you a line?

You can email me on butterscotchsundae.ponipower@gmail.com, or come and see me at buttersc0tchsundae.deviantart.com! I actually reply to people’s comment or questions (although it can take me a while sometimes, for which I apologise in advance...)

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I hope you enjoy the story!

I totally hate PinkieDash, but I've got that fic on my to-read-list since... ever? I don't think I can put it longer aside... hm.

"I actually reply to people’s comment or questions"

so true, she is awesome, replies every comment.

This story made me cry, I'm not ashamed to admit.:fluttercry:

Thanks for the reminder, failcraft.

The post here and over at the Vault has been updated with the FIMFic link (the story wasn't here when I did the interview back in December - sorry everyone!).

#8 · 210w, 3d ago · · ·

This one has a permanent spot on my top ten list. I read it ages ago before I even came to FIMFiction, when I saw it on EqD. I'm so glad it got uploaded here as well. The story in general was good, but there was one part towards the end that really sticks out in my mind and always makes me smile. I'll refrain from getting too spoilery, but suffice to say it involves Dash and singing. If you've read the story, you know what I mean. :raritywink::heart:

#9 · 210w, 3d ago · · ·

It was the first full-length fanfic I've ever read

It's not as deep as Eternal and not as cutesy as Allegrezza but is unique in its own way

The story is unbelievably epic for what seems like a romance

I tend to hate that ship too, but The Party Hasn't Ended is still one of my favorite fan fictions. It's definitely worth the time it takes to read.

#11 · 210w, 3d ago · · ·

>>72841>>73259

i dont really hate that particular pairing; its more like i have a hard to getting myself to read anything that doesnt involve one or any combination of twilight, celestia and luna to a high degree. mentioning this cause i've also had that fic on my 'to-read' list for ages, would have taken it of the list ages ago if it wasent written by one of my favorite authors :twilightsheepish:

#12 · 210w, 3d ago · · ·

This story is in my top ten list permanently, as in it will never be taken off, ever.

#13 · 210w, 3d ago · · ·

This is the fanfic that got me into shipping. Because of it I have Pinkiedash as part of my permanent headcanon. Also one the first fanfics i ever read. Not mlp fanfics, fanfics in general.

#14 · 210w, 3d ago · · ·

I haven't finished 'The Party hasn't ended' yet. Nothing wrong with the story itself, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Also in no small part that PinkieDash isn't exactly my favorite ship. I have this weird thing where if two ponies are too similar in some way I don't like the ship.

Anyway, it's also nice to get some insight into Butterscotch.

#15 · 210w, 1d ago · · ·

I'm waiting for the rest of "Much Ahoof About Nothing".

#16 · 210w, 18h ago · · ·

I was a reader on deviantart of Butterscotch's stories before I came here. How lame it may seem, I found my liking toward MLP fanfics from her stories. I really thought they were great and read them and thought, "It may seem strange that I enjoy this, but its all in good fun."

Thank you Butterscotch Sundae  :eeyup:

She's even what made me attempt at writing. :derpytongue2:

#17 · 209w, 5d ago · · ·

I've read quite a few ButterScotch stories.

Aaaandd... I didn't like them, I'm all for shipping no matter what it is. But maaaann, did Butters' stories really do nothing for me. I found RagingSemi's stories more enjoyable.

Plus, she have a very weird online ego, I don't know if it's just me, but I found it rather disturbing when I read one of her stories where herself makes out with her OC during an interview that she made up.

I don't see what people see in her, but you can keep on reading. I also don't like it when people pretend to be their OC's/Persona's, which Butters' does a lot.
