Welcome all to the latest Groups Post!
Below are several Groups, old and new, that have things going on for all of you interested in joining and participating!
In A Little Town Called Ponyville
Inspired by such shows like 'Tales of the Crypt' and 'The Twilight Zone', The Little Town project was launched early this month to gather writers and readers from all over FimFic who enjoy, appreciate, and like fics of the dark.
Now, now, now. Wait. Dark? Doesn't that mean gore and blood and death and horrible things?
Absolutely not. What our project is about is the true meaning of dark, a meaning that we all have felt was wrongfully attributed to popular gorefics such as Cupcakes or the Rainbow Factory and nothing else. Dark is about so much more. It is about the sinister, the creepy ,the weird and wonderful. It is about the funny and delightful, the spine-tingling and the chilling. It is about things that span the breadth of the things that everyone else enjoys, from ponies in bikinis shooting up zombies with automatic weapons, to the mind games played by two geniuses against each other with a whole town at stake. From the torment of the single pony as he or she has to make a choice that most are unwilling, to the mystery of a pony who one day wakes up to find that he is alone in the world without another soul.
For dark is something a little bit more than just blood and guts, and this project was launched to bring the meaning and spirit of the dark back.
With a friendly community and real-time workshopping, we seek to gather people of all kinds under this banner. The readers, the writers, the curious and the dedicated, and we hope to grow this series title into something where high-quality, peer-reviewed and well-written dark fics can be found of a specific kind.
Come check us out today!

Completed Story Compendium
the completed story compendium is a group I made in order to make it easier for readers to find completed stories, and hopefully bring more attention to those stories in the process. anyone can join or submit. the only stories we will not accept are ones that are not complete. this includes stories that have been canceled or are on hiatus. Also every (completed) story on EQD that's available on fimfiction can be found in our EQD featured folder.
The Octavia Fans Group is celebrating their One Year Anniversary Contest!
Check out the link for details on how to participate.
At SECRET SUNDAY, we get a prompt on Thursday.
Then, on SUNDAY, our stories go up.
The winner is the one with the most likes and favorites; it helps that the losers have to like and favorite your prompt as well.
If it's a tie, it's FINAL SHOWDOWN time, and a random member will choose the prompt.
Prompts are based on the viewers choice. They're very loose prompts, and can be written however you wish. No mature, please.
We hope you will join!
The World-Building Alliance offers it's second contest: Welcome to the February World-Building Alliance prompt!
Now that you've gotten your feet wet, it’s time for the next prompt. This time around, you’ll be limited to one of four races: Dragons, Minotaurs, Reindeer, and Sea Ponies. Additionally, the prompt is as follows:
Every race has its heroes. Some fade away with the passing of time while others become legendary embodiments of greatness. Pick a hero from among those four races that has reached such legendary status. Tell his/her tale.
Apple Pie is a group aimed at the regrettably obscure ship of Applejack and Pinkie Pie. We intend to make up for our small size with sheer pluckiness. There will be games, fanart-sharing, contests and the like, as well as being a hub for Apple Pie fanfiction, of course. Anyone and everyone is welcome to a slice of sweet, delicious Apple Pie!
Selfcest is the Best Cest (NSFW)
Feeling depressed? Need something off your chest? Come, one and all, to Selfcest is the Best Cest's Love Thyself Contest! Your friends will be impressed!
That's right, break out the typewriters and mirrors, folks, it's time to start writing some selfcest! Shipping ponies with each other is fun and all, but it's so much better to ship them with themselves! Give us a story about some more creative uses for time travel, or some other kinds of fun that can come from using the Mirror Pool. Maybe a changeling that enjoys being a copycat, or somepony meets a version of themselves from a parallel dimension. It's up to you, just so long as somepony ends up smooching themselves!
Head on over here for the official contest rules, or PM Esle Ynopemos for more information!
The Author Support prompt is a simple, bi-weekly event in which us admins have designed a simple "prompt" that members and anyone who wants to join must write at least a 1k word response to. They are given 2 weeks for each entry to be written, and prompts can be no longer than 7.5k words. (This is slightly variable, as we don't mind you going over the limit just a bit. Will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis if so.)
At the end of this two week period, five pre-determined judges give a score out of 50 on how well the fic scored in various areas (Areas: Professionality, Creativity, Characterization, Impact, and Entertainment). Five judges are Bronymaster, Peregrine Caged, Not Worthy, Sunnydaze, and Tricondon. These five judges will also write a short review of the fic, giving their reasoning for the scores they give, and giving commentary on how they think an author can improve their writing in the future based on what was given.
Once all the prompts are judged, a winner is announced on the front page. Scores and reviews are sent out privately via PMs, and no one’s score is revealed publicly unless that person chooses to reveal it him/herself.
The Prompts themselves take place in a thread, and the thread links to a series of rules that should be read before deciding to enter the prompt as well as an FAQ. The link to the current prompt is always listed at the very top of the group’s main front page.
NSFW Warning: The following group is not necessarily NSFW, but some of their content is not for everyone.
A long time ago, in a chat room far, far way, three less-than-sane members of society got together to share a few laughs and discuss ponies.
This idea became something more: the Mentally Deficient Authors.
We're a group that really just likes to kick back and crack jokes, talk about fanfiction, make horrible pop culture references, and discuss philosophical conundrums in the comfortable glow of our computer screen. Our members may not be at their sanest, but we're loyal and headstrong.
If you're wondering 'what can this group do for me,' we have a fairly active forum with all sorts of crazy threads, and members who will edit and preread for you if you're too lazy to try to find one yourself! Everyone is accepted as well, so long as you are somewhat less than sane, and carry yourself with a modicum of respect.
So what's stopping you? I'll tell you what: absolutely bugger-all. Now come on in and join! Sit by our metaphorical campfire, crack open a cool drink, and join the discussions. Welcome to the MDA; leave your sanity at the door.
