Welcome to the FimFiction group for The Conversion Bureau!
We have many many talented writers among us, and here is one of the many places we can share what tales and stories we can see in this scenario! We've been a community of friends and writers for almost a year now, and we plan to keep going!
Anyone is allowed to submit stories to the group, so have at it. The only reason we've gotten to be so big is because we always have more writers joining us out of the blue, so if you feel like you have an idea for a story, write it down and post it. We'll give you constructive criticism to help you improve your writing skills and storymaking. From complete novices to fully fledged novelists, everyone is encouraged to participate. Monthly writing events will take place starting in mid-February, with a new theme announced at the start of each event.
There are many folders (detailed below) and classification is up to the Author initiallly, but incorrectly-attributed stories may be moved or removed by a group admin.
NOTE: These will be undergoing house-cleaning in the near future, you may need to re-add your stories.
NOTE: Anti-TCB stories break from the "norm" of TCB. Broadly speaking, they ascribe darker, less benevolent (or even malevolent) intentions to the prime mover, Celestia, and to the conversion bureaus in particular.
Main: Melting pot of any and all otherwise unclassified TCB stories. Multiple posts in main and in the more-correct folder is allowed. If you feel a classification folder is missing, ask a group mod.
Featured Stories: Stories which best display the talents behind the authors in the TCB universe go here. One per customer.
Traditional: Reserved for mainly the earlier stories set in the TCB mythos. Equestria is usually expanding, Earth (in pretty dire straits) is usually going to be consumed, purification may happen. Also contains older one-shots and series that would otherwise not be classifiable as their own universe, such as Sidelines and Ten Rounds.
Yellowstone: No expansion, No Purification, Mankind gained Equestria as a neighbour more or less, along with all the races within it.
Chatoyance-Verse: Equestria is an expanding pocket universe with physics deadly to terrestrial life and will consume the planet in eight years, the Earth is over-exploited and ruined but everyone is fed, ponification is the only ticket to Lifeboat Equestria and is offered freely as a choice, HLF and PER are present. Essentially a "disaster movie" feeling.
Gammaverse: TCB written within Guardian Griffon's universe.
Cloudyverse: TCB set within Fangwarden's universe.
Other One-shots: One-shot stories set in universes that aren't any of the major ones listed above.
Other Series: Longer stories set in universes that aren't any of the major ones listed above.
Anti-TCB One-Shots: One-shot Anti-TCB stories go here.
Anti-TCB Series: Longer Anti-TCB stories go here.
Finally, this group is one that is for the fostering of a cooperative, friendly and safe creative environment. To that end, any user found to be harassing another will be asked to stop twice. If they fail to heed the second warning, or they have three incidents of harassment, then they will be removed from the group. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Depending on the nature of the incident, the user(s) in question may be reported to Knighty and/or Poultron at administrator discretion. For clarification, harassment is defined as insulting another user personally on faith, sexual orientation, gender, or any other qualifying attribute; insulting a user's chosen writing style, or insulting their authorverse as a whole. If a user asks you to stop, or that they consider a comment of yours harassment, do not take it upon yourself to reply or retaliate. An impartial, uninvolved administrator will handle the incident as quickly as possible.
