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 over several years now, and we plan to keep going!

Anyone is allowed to submit stories to the group, so have at it -- the only rule is that it has to be a TCB story! (That is, set in a world where Conversion Bureaus are a thing.)

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, just write it down and post it. We'll try and 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.

We occasionally run writing events, so keep an ear out!

There are many folders (detailed below) and classification is up to the Author initially, but incorrectly-attributed stories may be moved or removed by a group admin.


Stories by Universe: Stories by specific authors within settings of their own design. A myriad assortment of tales await within each of these unique settings.

Emergence Stories: Stories which feature the events surrounding the collision of Equestria and Earth, and the culture clash that results.

Conversion Bureau Experience: Stories that follow characters as they interact with the experience of undergoing Conversion or helping others do so.

Conversion Bureau Adventure: Stories featuring characters within the greater world of TCB, and what secrets the new, unified worlds might hold.

Post-TCB: Stories which explore the concept of a world after the events of a TCB setting have occurred.

Featured Stories: Stories which best display the talents behind the authors in the TCB universe go here. One per customer.

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.


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; 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.

The golden serum in the banner, which story is that from? Or is it just decorative?

Can you remove my story from this folder?

How should I begin a conversion bureau story?

My main idea is that some sort of monster from beyond the stars comes to Equestria, and begins converting ponies into Nanites, which is what the monster is made of. The ponies have to figure out how to reverse the conversion process, since people are the only beings that can kill this particular monster.

A couple threads talk about this but the original is not regarded as well made even thought the concept stuck. I'd recommend reading the "First Year" as a that's a good general overview of the themes of that microverse and is pretty neutral in tone.

Seeing a lot of "the conversion bureau" stories and was wondering which one should I start with? Which one kicked off all the stories?

Alternate Conversion Bureau but basicly TCB with humans VS ponies and war. Kinda bland after the 50th human vs story really.

I suck really badly at writing story but if there is one thing I'm good at it's giving a ideas so here is my idea for a story that a better writer can write for me:

Agent Maine/the meta from RvB ends up in the conversion bureau universe due to a spell used by a unicorn to summon something on their side, unfortunately for them meta fights for the human and brutally kills the ponies. (like tear out the skull of a pony and beat someone to death with it) meta's AI are all scattered around the earth and meta has only the childlike ai (theta I think), so that when meta speak he sounds like a child,

Maine is immune to the barriers and potions and is pretty much invincible as he slaughters armies of ponies head on, plus all of his ai are in sort of barrier producing generator. when meta collect an AI the Barrier stops moving and retreat, bringing back everything that was destroyed in the process,

Maine also is immune to the stare and in retaliation for fluttershy using the stare on him,he  tears out one of her eyes,

Chapter ideas: after gruesomely killing an entire battalion of ponies Maine chase the commander over a long period of time and distance, chasing the commander to death,

Maine tricks a small group of ponies by using theta' voice to sound like a scared child while hiding,  after that he slaughters them like the vermin they are,

Maine fights shining armor and curb stomps him, after that he tortures him, he cut all of his legs, rip his horn out, sever his tail and cut his dick and balls, after that he offer twilight a deal: she can use the potion on shiny but he will be different forever or she can leave him be, whichever way twilight chose Maine shoves the potion up shining throats and force him to swallow it,

Ending: mankind victorious, twilight and elements of harmony tortured for eternity, celestia dead, Maine continues to kill any remaining ponies.

Hello everypony ^_^

(I was reading a TCB fanfic and I thought of this...)

Ponies... space is not for you... It's for those who seek exploration, not domination! Your race will not converge another innocent race, they may have had war like humanity but it still does not make it right. Your rocket has ventured to where humanity reins supreme, a place that you can't effect because your not the first. Other races in the stars will hear of humanities past and say that it was not justified and will cry for vengeance of the human race! The protection of there race, the protection of the Universe!

(I have no Idea how this came to mind...)

hi there is this the group that supports ACB stories?? I take the ACB preference myself but I think a really broad spectrum of different kinds of equestrian stories wether it be anti or pro conversion bureau shouldn't be a huge issue. every viewpoint creates a fresh perspective and different original storyline. I'd say they're all good in their own right it's each individuals choice. :pinkiesad2:

Soundtrack playing when I'm reading these fics..

Well if we dont have their names then we cant do much about it and dont often tines trolls do love to start flames wars between the two groups, just keep that in mind.

>>308584 "Fucking stupid idiots. I am headed back to the TCB group fuckers!"

One of the several comments in the several spam attacks.

I think a majority of these people come from this group.

I can't speak on behalf of the TCB group but I can tell you that I don't think anyone in here is spamming the ACB and if it is regarding your name change it really isn't our fault or problem. I think it falls within the controls of the ACB moderators and how they handle themselves as a group.

#308559 · 69w, 1d ago · 1 · 1 ·

>>308475 I am fine with the folders, I am just confused as to why people keep spaming the ACB group about several things, including how they didn't like our name.

Time and time again we have to remove entire threads just because of spam attacks.

I am not demanding the change of anything here, I have no right. I was just stating that it doesn't make sense how people from here make the time to spam us because of a name. When their own group uses the exact same thing.

But yes, you are right about the name change. It was to make us look less like a hate group, and I hope I didn't make it sound like I was saying it was because of a spam attack.

But, like I stated, there was a 'spam attack' that included hatefull messages regarding the ACB groups name.

That is all I was trying to say.

Its the way we organized the folders and from what I've seen we weren't complaining about the ACB. I believe when Knightly was going to close down the ACB, Valkaden changed the name in order to show that it was another group of TCB instead of it being portrayed as some sort of hate group that most people view it as.

If I'm wrong then shoot me a PM with a link or something and I'll try and figure it out then I'll talk to Krass about it to see about changing the folders but I doubt the folders will be changed because its easier to identify what is what in the group. I mean the ACB was made for those kind of stories, this group is just TCB as a whole.
