What We're About
The Transformations group is dedicated to collecting stories that involve, in some substantial fashion, the physical transformation of characters in the story into someone or something else.
Transformation allows for a lot of things that would not normally be possible in a story. It lets characters experience a different perspective than their own, one they couldn't have imagined otherwise. It allows for situations of humor and drama that lay beyond the basic. Sometimes, it's just interesting to see how someone reacts to being in a new form and a new life, whether that involves fleeing from persecution, finding new friends, or adapting to a new reality entirely.
Stories must involve a physical transformation of one into the other, either before the story begins or at some point later.
a) Stories that will feature transformation in a substantial way, according to the author, are permitted.
b) Stories that have characters being different as a condition of the story (for example, in this universe, Twilight is actually a stallion) are not permitted unless they also involve a transformation.
c) On-screen rape and pedophilia/foalcon are strictly forbidden. Please see the thread below for further guidelines on this topic.
d) Special Consideration: The Conversion Bureau, PonyEarthverse, and other similar mass collaborations should only be added if they involve the transformation of a principle character, ideally focusing on the topic of what it means to be transformed or the experience of being transformed. We are not collection points for these fics in general, just the ones that merit our group's interest.
If in doubt, please view the thread on fics that do or don't belong.
Our forum is open for all sorts of friendly discussion. Be cool to each other, and remember that we're a group with a wide variety of tastes and interests. Have fun!
