How To Accuse Someone Of Breaking The Rules
1. First, make sure that they've actually broken the rules, instead of taking the word of someone else who may have said the wrong thing by mistake. You might try talking to the so called rule breaker yourself first instead of listening to rumors and not getting the whole story.
2. Note that the stories the author revoked were republished by other mods several days later. Mods who did NOT bump them up on the site home page, so no rules were actually broken. See this rule:
Revoking a submission makes a story invisible on the site again. It will need to be submitted again and go through moderation before it is visible on the site again.
Note that it does NOT say you're not allowed to resubmit a story. Only that it would have to go through moderation again.
3. Note also how the person who not only accused the author of breaking the rules, also mocked a teenager in their blog post, coming dangerously close to breaking this rule:
Do not make blog posts specifically attacking other people.
Said post narrowly escaped breaking this rule simply by not naming names, even though many people knew exactly who they were talking about.
4. The one rule the author did break was a rule she was not aware of. Now that she is aware of the rule, she will not be breaking it again.

Everything has been worked out between I and the other party, so my stories are going back up, and the riff has been taken down. Lets all just forget about this now and move on.
Like Rarity would say: Let us never speak of this again.

Being an adult survivor of child abuse, I find it therapeutic to write about it. Much of what Scootaloo goes through is exactly what my own mother put me through. Though in my case, it was my grandmother who always made excuses for her since it was just me and those two who lived together.
These days my mother is still verbally and emotionally abusive and I simply avoid her as much as possible. Nobody deserves abuse no matter how old they are.
Perhaps after writing The Monster In Apple Bloom and Scootaloo's Painful Secret I'll be able to write stories from my imagination and not my painful past. We'll see.
For those of you waiting for the next chapter in The Monster In Apple Bloom I'll work on it soon.

So already this story has been liked and faved by some people, which makes me happy. The story will be more in depth as it goes along.
Having Bipolar Disorder myself, some of what Apple Bloom goes through is based on my own experiences, and some of it is completely different. If anyone recognizes the symptoms listed in the story in themselves I would strongly recommend that they see a doctor. Part of the reason I'm writing this story is for public awareness.
I know this story will probably be highly controversial, as mental illness can be a very uncomfortable topic for some, and even frightening, but it's a sad fact that it's out there. Not just Bipolar Disorder, but other kinds of mental illness as well.
Bipolar Disorder affects approximately 5.7 million American adults, or about 2.6 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year. (Source Wikipedia.)
If you feel suicidal, please get help. There are people who care.
