    10 Story Rules

    I get several messages a month of people asking the same thing.

    Hey, Max. I was just curious, have you read my story [INSERT STORY NAME AND LINK HERE]?

    Typically, I do not answer these or click on the link. Why? Because, if I comment on your story or favorite it, it's because I stumbled across it, read it, and enjoyed it. You managed to snag me as a reader based off of the concept and writing alone. You should feel proud! If you try and cram a story down my throat, I'm going to ignore it. You should be ashamed.

    That being said, to give you strange few a fighting chance, and because this is another slightly drunken blog, I shall present you all with...


    MADMAXTHEBLACK'S

    TEN THINGS TO AVOID

    IN ORDER TO GET ME TO READ YOUR STORY*


    1.) Keep your descriptions short. If I have to read an entire novel before even getting to the first chapter, I'm not going to read your story. A good description should be short, yet interesting enough to catch the attention of a potential reader. It should make me want to read your story.

    2.) Keep your own imaginary world out of it. One of the biggest turn-offs for me is when I see something like this in the story's description:

    Alekitrak of Melidross was the most wanted criminal in Dewvile. One day when a heist goes wrong, she ends up in Equestria. Will the ponies be able to cure this thief of her need to steal, or do old habits never die?

    Nobody but you knows who Alekitrak is, or what Melidross and Dewvile are. And you're insane if you think I want to read some long-winded, two chapter exposition from Alekitrak about what her home world was like. Seriously, I have issues with HiE's when a human is describing Earth, the place where I live. I don't want to have to memorize your own imaginary world as well.

    3.) Pinkie breaks the forth wall. Eeyup, I said it. There is no quicker way to lose me as a reader than Pinkie suddenly mentioning the author, the readers, something that's going to happen in a few chapters, or having knowledge of something that she should not EVER have knowledge of. Seriously, Pinkie is random, not some demigod. She breaks the forth wall, and I'm breaking my keyboard (within reason. Some comedy stories can break the forth wall of entertainment sake).

    4.) Cliffhangers.

    But, Blackie! you cry, screaming at your computer, You have cliffhangers galore in your story! True, but you know what I do that most other authors don't? I update at a steady and even pace. And, for whatever reason, god forbid, I can't get the next chapter out in time, I let you know and keep you updated. Seriously, I have a progress bar on my homepage that shows how close the chapter is to completion. If you have a cliffhanger, and haven't updated in ages, and don't let people know why, fuck you. Especially when I look up and see that you were last online five minutes ago.

    5.) OC Main Character sudden becomes OP for no reason. What's that? The changelings are invading again? Don't worry, I have a super bio-tech suit that can squash them flat and make it so I take no damage! What, I've never mentioned the suit in the thirty or so chapters of the story? Well, that's because it's supposed to be secret!

    ...fuck you, you know who you are.

    6.) Your human character has a bullshit, unreasonable past. Seriously, how many people do you think are assassins working for a secret society of super agents? If your human is an ex-assassin, mercenary, etc... fuck you! It's even worse when it's revealed halfway through the story. "Why do I have trust issues? Well, it's because of [STUPID, UNREALISTIC BACKSTORY ABOUT THE REASON I'M ANGSTY AND HAVE LOTS OF SCARS]."

    7.) Your human is transported to Equestria with everything he needs to survive in his backpack at the time. Luckily, this one usually happens early, so I don't get emotionally attached to the story. Seriously, I don't know about you guys, but I generally don't carry rope, a tent, combat knife, laptop with solar charger, three days worth of food, medical kit, flint and steel, painkiller, pistol with lots of ammunition, flares, rain jacket, and compass with me when I travel around during an average day. It's usually my cellphone, wallet, keys and watch. Maybe my laptop if I'm going to school.

    8.) Bronies in Equestria.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccck yoooooooooouuuuuuu! Seriously, fuck you and your waifu, who you'll probably end up with in the end because your personalities click together so perfectly. I despise everything about these types of stories. The MC has previous knowledge of Equestria, so they don't have to learn who the characters are. MC usually amazes ponies with his knowledge, and they don't at all find it creepy. MC greets mane 6 in such a way that they will like him (Rarity: kiss on the hoof, Fluttershy: a gentle hello, Rainbow Dash: hoofbump).

    The only good BiE story is one where the brony gets sent to an Alternate Reality Equestria. Let's see him have god-like knowledge when Vinyl Scratch is the Alicorn of Wub.

    9.) Trend stories. Just because someone did a Cards Against Humanity story and it was in the top spot of the feature box for a week and a half straight doesn't mean you should make one too! This also applies to Five Nights at Freddy's, LoHAV, YHaY. Yes, Your Human and You stories are on there too. Don't just write one because you want to be popular, only post two chapters and then quit when it only has thirty likes. You have to work for your fame and fortune.

    10.) Pony on Earth stories. This is the last thing on the list because I don't really hate them; I just don't prefer them. I read these stories in order to escape from the real world, so I don't want to read a story that reminds me of it. There is nothing really wrong with them, I'll just generally not read them.


    *Now, these are just basic guidelines. There are some stories out there that break the mold, and I will read and favorite even if they break a few of these rules. These are few and far between.

I like the idea of this story based off of the description. I'll look forward to more chapters:yay:

Huh. Alrighty then.

You have my curiosity! :raritystarry:

I have an unfavorable premonition about this...

I'm intrigued yet very angry toward the treatment of humans.

This story is lookin good, I just hope our human here gets some revenge:pinkiecrazy:

This is a very good idea for a story... but spaying and nutering? Really? *Face hoof* Even myself, Princess of Torture does not do those despicable acts!

The entire premise of this story is a massive no. Seriously... just, no.

>>2756677 I am sorry you feel that way, and I am sorry I could not hold up to your expectations.  Feel free to leave a thumb down if you haven't already, and go about with your view pleasure.

Thank you for your feedback, and I hope you have a nice day.

Its on the fence for this one. It one of those stories that'll get better with more installments. keep coming with installments and i'll keep reading.

>>2759027 tune in next Friday and I hope you'll be pleased

I have a feeling,just hear me out

shit is going to hit the fan,I repeat shit is going to hit the fan

so put your disguises:moustache:

Why doesn't he speak?:rainbowhuh:

Tentative follow. Could be very interesting.

no offence to the writer this will probably end up in my favs in time anyway.

but does anyone know another story similar to this one where humans are like animals i guess or close  to that way.

i kind of have been looking for a story like this but still need to scratch that itch iv been feeling for these types of fanfics for quite some time now, and am tired of looking through the list even with the filter?

but ya that would be swell

>>2768120 no  offense taken.

As for your search, this came to mind.  I know it's not a story, but something is better than nothing, right?

>>2766458

What the hell?!  I said, or at least tried to say.  I had opened my mouth but no words had come out.  What the fuck?  Was I mute now?  My throat was still sore, but what on earth could cause me to become mute?  Are you now telling me that I was stuck in the middle of the desert and I was mute?!

>>2768205 Ohhhh, so maybe he will try to communicate through writing? And sorry.

>>2768241 No problem.  The attempted communication will come later.  I like to think that he is just going along for the ride until he figures out what is going on.

Also, I am getting a sort of a Planet of the Apes vibe from this. Is that what inspired this story?

>>2768262 Kinda.  It may have influenced it, but only just slightly.  Most chapters are written based off what my friend decides, as per our bet.

I really hate to be one of those people but... when is the next chapter coming out? I'm really, really taken with this already.

>>2768678 Friday for sure.  Sooner if my editor decides to get up off his lazy butt and actually earn his title.

>>2768686 Lol fair enough, I hope that does happen then because I'd been looking for something along these lines :pinkiehappy:

Why is he mute? Oo

Anyway, I see a hell of a potential here, and I'm suprised this story has got so many dislikes, considering it's only 2 chapters long yet...

Faving and liking it. Let's hope it won't turn out into a whole bunch of BS.

>>2779584 He's mute because of...reasons.

As per the hope, I'll try and keep as much BS out of the story as possible, but unfortunately what some find as BS others find as gold...

>>2780087

I didn't mean to offend you or something... Sry if I did ;d

>>2780107 Nope, you didn't.  I just tend to come of like that in writing, sorry. :pinkiehappy:

This will not end well.

Good. Good. So frickin good. I wish I could give you more upvotes.

Still, why is he mute? Will you explain this in next chapters or it's just something that has to be?

Keep up the good work buddy!

>>2790814 It shan't be explained in the next chapter, but it shall be explained eventually.  It does have a purpose, just not one that can be reveled...yet :pinkiecrazy:

>>2790818>>2790818

Awwww... I'll be looking forward to the next chapters then. Hope they'll be as good as those, or even better.

Don't disappoint us :pinkiecrazy:

fuckin´ molestia dude :trollestia:

I am seriously loving the universe you have created!!! Please don't stop, or leave us hanging!!! :rainbowkiss: In all seriousness I enjoy your writing, and can't wait for more chapters!

P.S. I hope he can at least communicate through writing. He can still do that...can't he? :rainbowhuh:

good great awesome  TAKE ALL THE COMPLEMENTS YOU WANT JUST GIVE MOAR!!!!!!:flutterrage:

http://mylittlefacewhen.com/f/9071/

http://mylittlefacewhen.com/f/9064/

>>2793476 Yes sir!  Right away sir!  Actually working on it right now sir!

...why is he mute? What possible explanation could there be for him being unable to speak? It would be one thing if he had a magic collar put on him by ponies, something they put on ALL the humans to keep them from talking in an attempt to make them appear as dumb animals. I'd be disgusted by such treatment (like I already am, I mean, JESUS CHRIST, neutering?! These are sentient beings you're doing this to! This isn't the Middle Ages either, this is Two Thousand Freakin' Thirteen, and the ponies have things like computers, trains and magic. What possible reason do they need slaves for?) but it would explain why they couldn't TALK!

But no. He's mute the minute he gets there. How? His larynx wasn't damaged. And you can't use the reasoning "humans in THIS dimension are mute because of how they've evolved". He's not FROM this dimension so that reason doesn't fly. The rules shouldn't apply to him.  It would be one thing if humans had evolved as a species to just not be able to really use their mouths because of something the ponies did, but again, he's not from around there, so whatever affects humans in THIS reality shouldn't affect him.

>>2795403 All in due time...all in due time...

>>2795403

It's the same as getting your cat or dog fixed. The way the humans are treated is even closer to how wild horses are even right now.

>>2790682

maybe not well... but sure Interesting^^

Question: what qualifies as gore and on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) how "gorey" will this story become?

>>2807310 That really depends on YOUR definition of 'gore'.  The neutering scene was probably a 5 for this story.  There is one chapter further on that will probably be around a 7, but besides that this story will most likely be lite on the gore.

the guy has to grow a pair and stop being a grovelling little bitch its really unattractive

>>2818275  Calm down, Flare. Now's not the time for growing a pair. That comes later.
