    Groups Post - November 2015

    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.

    Not sure how I managed to completely forget to post this over the weekend like I'd originally planned. Whoops. I'll just blame Fallout 4 even though that doesn't make any sense shut up


    The AppleDash group has been around since mid-2012, not long after season 2 finished airing. Last month we hit the 2000 member mark, but we know we can do better than that! The group is home to a great bunch of people who are passionate about one of the oldest ships in the fandom and who also love a good conversation—whether it's help with writing a fic or just shooting the breeze. The group also occasionally holds contests and large, organized collaborations, as well as smaller, ongoing collabs, such as our prompt tag. Head on over and say hi; we'd love to have you!

    100,000 Words

    Welcome to 100,000 Words, where we greet the stories of great writers that have a grand total of over 100,000 words! There's no limit to the amount of stories you can find in our little group, but we need more people, so come on in and add your favorite stories with fantastically high word counts!

    The Game Theorists

    Hello Internet, welcome to Game Theory.

    [insert GT Theme here]

    That's right. Finally, the official group has been made for all of you theorists. We theorize, discuss our theories and keep you updated on MatPat's videos/GT Live. If you want to post a theory using a video or a Livestream- even just writing it on the forums, we welcome it all! We are glad to be here in this little brony community, so be sure to join! Remember, Look Smart, and Be Smart.

    But that's just a Theory. A game theory!

    Equestria Legends Online Fan Group

    Have you read Equestria Legends Online? Yes, then come on down and join our little group, where you can create your own side-story for this very popular fic by Shadowflame. If you haven't, join and catch up on the story's awesomeness! ELO is about a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) based off My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. During the story, some dark events ensue, and the main characters have been giving a chilling conclusion. You can no longer log out of the game. (And no, its not a SAO rip-off, its just SAO inspired.)

    OC Tales

    You remember Five Score? Remember PEv? Well, here in OC Tales, they're something a bit different. In OC Tales, you can join the verse as bronies across the Earth begin to become their OCs all because in "The Art of Becoming a Pony OC" the main character's, Len, brother, Sam, decides to fiddle with science. The group is currently moving into the Equestria stage of the Timeline, but we're still open to new stories!


    Revamped and stronger than ever, the Displaced group has become stronger!  We've remodeled the group, and now, we can welcome you even better! Come and join the largest collaboration of stories as they intertwine with one another and create one massive Multiverse, bringing together entire new Universes and all kinds of people. Don't like the Displaced stories you've read? That's fine, you can probably find a fic you like out there in our 500+ story Vault!

    That's it for November. See you next month!

    Rule clarity issues

    As it has been pointed out there are some clarity issues with some of our new rules and a few problems created, we have made some clarification changes, here for your convenience:

    • Posting of anyone’s personal information other than your own without permission is prohibited. This includes name, street address, email address, IM screennames, etc.

    • Posting your own personal information is not recommended and done at your own risk, and we cannot help you with any problems this might result in.

    • You may not expose a link between two profiles on or off Fimfiction, that the profile owners did not already document. If both profiles are on Fimfiction, a report should be filed on one of the users in question if the user is violating our secondary account rules.

    General Conduct

    Registration and account security

    • Multiple people sharing the same computer, mobile or other internet-capable device or internet connection may be subject to increased scrutiny of their behavior if the activity between the two overlap.

    Please see the rules page for our full rules, these are only the changes.

    Ninja knighty edit: I've fixed a couple of major issues with the gdoc importer which should mean it doesn't drop paragraphs anymore. Feel free to test and let us know if you still get problems.

    Results for character tag survey

    It took a little while, but I've compiled the results for the tag survey and organized them, as well as completed internal discussions about some of the more edge-case-y tags. Please don't expect these tags to be added right away, or to all be added at once, as adding these will take some time staff-side and we think there might be a couple of minor related problems to be solved before everything can get added.

    Please also note that the list is sorted alphabetically, but this does not reflect the order things will be added in, we will try to get more common requests added first. Additionally, the categories listed here were not gathered from the survey, they're being added as staff discussion while looking at character tags showed we also lack a few notable categories.

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, or come and see me at! 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.

#2 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·

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

so true, she is awesome, replies every comment.


#3 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·

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

ALL MY PINKIEDASH FEELS!! :pinkiesad2::rainbowkiss:

#4 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·

Yay, go Butterscotch, and I did enjoy the stories!

#5 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·

There is a fimfiction post of this i think.

The Party Hasn't Ended

#6 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·

BCS' stories really are fun to read. This one was included. What a big fic.

#7 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·


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 · 189w, 1d 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 · 189w, 1d 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

#10 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·


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 · 189w, 1d ago · · ·


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 · 189w, 22h ago · · ·

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

#13 · 189w, 21h 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 · 189w, 10h 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 · 188w, 6d ago · · ·

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

#16 · 188w, 5d 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 · 188w, 2d 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.
