Hello and welcome to Heartwarming, which aims to fill a special, important niche of pony stories. If you need a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your chest, then let this group be your guide!
How this works:
Deposit stories in this group if they give warm fuzzy feelings, and those warm fuzzies are the overall point of the story. The Light in the Darkness is a perfect example of what we're looking for here, but there is some tonal leeway.
No clop, no "fetishes," no mature tag. Sex tag is allowed if it is harmless stuff you would find in a T rated game.
More folders will be added as time shows what stories need folders. The rules have recently changed to make it easier for users and administrators.
Please submit all stories to the [Submissions] folder. The administrators will then read them, and sort them into an appropriate subfolder:
[General] -- stories which don't fit anywhere else. The all-arounders.
[Adorable] -- stories that are super cute!
[Hilarious Heartwarming] -- comedic heartwarmers.
[Tearjerkers] -- stories that leave you with a misty-eyed smile.
[Scootalove] -- stories that focus on Scootaloo finally catching a break.
[Hurt/Comfort] -- stories where one character is comforted by another in times of sadness or injury.
[Romantic Hearts] -- stories which warm the heart through the power of love.
[Family Bonds] -- stories of siblings, parents, and children having bonding moments.
Finally, [Heartmelters] is for stories like the aforementioned The Light in the Darkness. Stories so intensely heartwarming that you can feel your heart melting as you read, hence the name. Essentially, our "cream of the crop" folder.
