all of teh ponies aer now ants btu cant tell u why so raed teh sotyry
Not sure if trolling or actually stupid..
wha wait what
Dude... if he actually was that stupid how could he post the story?
Don't stop writing, just because you're shit doesn't mean you should stop, but all I ask is that you drastically improve!
I just wonder how this got past the confirmation stage to be posted. Perhaps it's a really deep, truly brilliant deconstruction of high-minded fanfiction ideas being put through the woodchipper by hasty execution and talentless, inept writers, or possibly it's an on-site experiment to see what kind of crap they can get posted. Or maybe it's just a really stupid trolling attempt by an even more moronic writer.
Who knows, but I'm sort of expecting to see it in the feature box before long.
Edit: Also, screw the writer for defacing Leslie Nielsen.
How the heck did this get featured and Maledictum Insania never even got mentioned?
your reviews are always great.
but horse manure, what's the point of these eye-rape stuff? I can laugh at other fics. intelligent ones.
How did this get featured indeed... because the featured rotation has become screwed up. Now all a story needs is a bunch of ratings, whether good or bad, to make the rotation, and legitimately good authors get screwed.
What.......The............Fuck did i just read?
*looks at the feature box*
Oh, come on!
>> quillsaga Why, thank you. I really appreciate that.
Wait, I'm confused. People put hard work, dedication, and labor into their work... and THIS gets featured? W-what? Something can't be right.
>>250408250408 Happens all the time.
There are many ways where that would be possible that I don't want to venture into.
what. THE. FUCK?
>>250414250414 What are the guidelines for a story to get featured? Does it only have to do with the amount of ratings it gets in a small amount of time? Tell me, where am I going so wrong?
What the hell am I reading?
Easily best clip...
Also a small note on the story, I do not think ants go "squish" but rather more of a "crunch".
And "TWILIGHT sparkle", sparkle should be capitalized
You know...I have no idea if this guy's some kind of troll...or if he's legitimately illiterate. Spelling should be a prerequisite for writing stuff.
Also...remember when good stories appeared in the feature bar? You know, the stories that were actually well put together? Yeah. Those were the days. If this keeps up, people are just going to start ignoring the feature box completely. This will translate into decent fics not getting the coverage they deserve, et cetera, et cetera.
>>250426250426 All I know is that, shall we say, less deserving stories are the ones that tend to be featured an inordinate amount of the time. I wish I knew the specifics, so I could formulate a more useful complaint against it. I would think though that it's some kind of automated process that takes into account, as you said, number of ratings over time, and probably also comments over time. Which most likely means we're doing ourselves a disservice by discussing this topic here.
Come to think of it, that could very well be the while point of this "story"...
Dis is da Greatest thing since spiderses!!! I WANT MOAR!!!!!!1!!!
In all seriousness, I'm guessing this is a trollfic. In which case, kudos to you: trolling successful.
This is truly a master piece for this generation that rivals the writing staff of the show itself. Its obvious that them being ants is a visual metaphor for ones feeling of insignificance, and compared too a great ruler like Celestia, all one would ever be, an ant.
You match the characters perfectly, specifying that Rainbow Dash does indeed live in, her own house, and not Twilight. And the way you described Twilight and her being purple (no doubt a metaphor for her being in love with Rainbow Dash that i'm sure you'll no doubt exploit later).
And of course, who could forget that ending, that cliffhanger making the reader ask for more " They wer all very small now and mgiht ge squish by spkie so they had to be cefarful." Again, it ever being obvious that this is significant, because spike being a Dragon, will one day grow up, and will no doubt be a life altering Journey for all who are involved.
I give this story 5 stars.
This. This is how not to write a troll fic.
Most of the time it can be halfway enjoyable because the writer either parodies common fandom clichés or comes up with genuinely amusing scenarios (Like "No John, you are the Demons" or "I hath Telekinesis")
But this... this is just a mixture of bad grammar and poor spelling. Try harder next time, sir: try harder.
SO... I can put hard work and dedication into my fanfic, but somehow this is featured?
Tell me about it!
No, it didn't used to happen all the time. Stories of actual quality used to get featured, not things like this. Now, you can debate all day long whether a story is good or not, but ultimately, stories that were featured were the creme de la creme. They also stayed in the rotation longer, allowing them to get the coverage they deserved (also because only good stories got there, so therefore it changed slower because not that many good ones are posted.)
>>250459250459 I don't think this story is featured. Plus, your story was cute. A bit short, but good all the same. Just remember, bad may get more attention then good, but good is valued a lot more.
My Lord, this piece of literature will go down in history as a classic. I am honored to have read it so shortly after its publicaton. Your writing style was at first a tad too descriptive however.
I must admit, that I was shocked at the spot on representation of Applejack and her dialect. And, good sr, your character description of Rarity was gorgeous. I've never seen adjectives used so magnificantly before.
Tears welled in my eyes, laughs left my mouth, and my heart glowed for the characters in what is most certainly their greatest adventure yet.
ps- This was so stupid I loved it.
>>250447250447 Okay, good one. I laughed heartily.
Y'know, usually even in the face of terrible blatant trollfics, I can manage to keep a straight face and provide constructive criticism. I make it a point not to be that guy who just laughs, posts a "clever" comment and/or reaction image, and ultimately provides nothing of value to help the author.
Well, I'm in a shitty mood today, so dicks to that. What the actual tapdancing christfuck did I just read? It's like the author had an idea for a trollfic, but had no fucking concept of what a trollfic is supposed to look like, choosing instead to just throw things at his keyboard and whatever came up on screen was good enough.
I don't know what terrifies me more - knowing that my own species is capable of producing offspring this dumb or the realization that this pile of rotting asses actually got approved by someone.
Seriously, what the dick?
10/10 would read again
Typoes too unrealistic, sorry.
Your words... they hurt my eyes...
Um...okay, i give up on my own story...it's pointless now after reading this. I have no hope of comparing to this...
Pardon me as I go and gouge out my eyes. Wait, no. If I do that then I won't be able to write Traveler any more... I need to read something to get this affront to good writers out of my head. Where is the nearest book? Ah here is one... NO, the Twilight series!
Oh well, at least it is better than this... but only by a little.
This is not your calling in life, I am sorry. Try something else my friend. Something that doesn’t require you to think.
But if you are trolling, then I say this... WHAT THE FUCK!!!
I am probably just waisting my time posting this, oh well.
I'm thinking this guy's trying to build on the "success" that "The Spiderses" enjoyed. Complete disregard for spelling, punctuation, and general coherence, plus being about ponies being turned into insects (or in Spiderses' case, arachnids.)
This is absolutely horrible. Why would you even write this?
...Whatever the reason, I love you. This is so terrible that I can't wait for chapter 2.
this was glorious.
>>250658250658 Both your avatar and that thing you just put on your comment creep me the fuck out.
p.s. I was going to read this. I thought "ants that sounds like a fun idea", but now seeing your reactions I now think that this will probably be a rather large petrified pile of dog shit which has been roasting in the grass at Crescent Park in (ramble alert) Littlefield, Texas, during mid-summer.
>>250354250354 >>250363250363 >>250387250387 >>250626250626 Read "Quarter Life: Halfway to Destruction". It's supposed to be very stupid. That's what makes it funny!
Eh. I don't really have anything against 'so bad they're good' fics (there needs to be a better name for them than 'trollfics'), but this particular one is a fairly uninspired example of the form. Clearly a blatant attempt to cash in on the genius of 'Spiderses'.
Pretty sure "Featured" is automatic, based solely on ratings and comments (but not views)
So yes, you can write a horrible 300-word "fic" and it will get featured after getting tons of negative comments and thumb-downs.
How'd this even get past moderation, anyways?
I am now slightly disturbed.
Naked gun is best movie series.
I actually find this quite entertaining. I think people have tried to take this way too seriously.
Just... Please go into a corner and die please.....
Well, alright then... Most bronies poke at grammer because it's an occasional blemish in the story body. In this case, it's stage four brain cancer and it's spreading to my head. Knowing that it's intentional doesn't comfort me much. Have a good day.
umm.... I almost cried while reading this. I'm not sure if I should praise you for your trolling or kill you for destroying my brain cells
