    Burn

    I've just rewatched 'Luna Eclipsed' because of the date and all, and then, because eff it, I watched the first eight minutes of Crystal Empire Part 1. I hadn't seen an episode of pony in... months.

    I'm glad I did, now, but I also feel like a guilty fool.

    Immediately after watching, my brain exploded when it tried to acknowledge the existence of this site modeled after the show I'd just seen. It's a strange distortion--a sick, far-out distortion--and I'm not able to fully grasp what's gone on; it's as if someone dropped a toddler in a night club, or something.

    In fact, it makes me feel dirty. I feel guilty for having even been in a place like this when it bastardizes something so heartfelt, sweet, and pure. It's a corruption to me right off the bat and every last little thing I've ever read about Twilight that hasn't been in the show makes me feel like I'd read about an impostor--an impostor pulling cheap cash off of their imitation.

    I know Twilight sparkle--I just saw over half an hour of Twilight Sparkle. And you know what? None of the fake copies on here can match her.

    I can't do this.Knowing the love Lauren Faust and the creators of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic must have for this show makes me extra aware of what's going on, here. If someone took something of mine and wrote or drew something 'fan art' completely out of context, something not even plausible or entirely inappropriate in the universe or canon or reality I'd found, I'd be...

    I'd be downright hateful. :fluttershyouch:

    Hell, I'd even be pissed they were spending so much time on it when they should be out discovering their own worlds, not stitching multicolored pieces of fabric onto a work I've already sown. What an ugly, non-original quilt that would be! What a gaudy, insulting mess. Mutilation is the most sincere form of fandom appreciation, it appears.

    I just can't watch an episode of the show and then acknowledge how much frigging goddam porn and bullshit there is based off of it. It's not something I can do. My Little Pony is a sanctuary, it was meant to be a sanctuary, and people are using it to get off. This is worse than when Jesus caught moneychangers using a temple for business. This is like running a prostitution ring overnight in a daycare center, even letting the clients use the toys. You may clean them off with some Chlorox wipes, but the memory remains, and you can't take back what just happened.

    It's rape. It's a passive-aggressive rape for an audience to approve of, for people to get their physical and egotistic rocks off, and I can't sit around here anymore. No. No, no, no, no.

    The stories on here don't feature the characters from the show... they use cheap Chinese-factory-stitched costumes and stuff whatever they want inside, then beat them around and call them "Applejack" or "Rainbow Dash" when they're puppets filled with sickly meat. You can put makeup on a pig, but you can't call it Giselle Bundchen.

    I might be going off the rails, but I look back at the show, and knowing what I know about this site, I simply cannot justify 98% of the stuff. Sure, maybe the sexual or even adult-humor stuff is spun off of a 'love' of it, but none of that is evoked by the show, and I especially am sure that its creators don't want to acknowledge its existence; if they could, they'd probably burn and ban it all, too.

    Think right now how Lauren Faust would feel if she examined this website. Think how she would feel if she took a look at "Equestria After Dark." A lot of you have probably met one of the voice actors--can you think about meeting them, shaking their hands, seeing their smile, and acknowledging what you're read, written, viewed, or even jacked off to without some guilt or shame? Embarrassment is a burn you can't bury in a circumstance like that.

    We're using someone else's toys in ways they were never meant to be used and calling it love and creativity. This isn't love, and this is rearrangement and utilization for an unintended purpose, not creativity--this is bastardization of a temporary obsession, raping something for what it's worth while it's there until the next sparkly toy rolls down the production line.

    I'm not going to partake in this 'fan facade' gangbang anymore. I became a fan of pony for the right reasons, found a true love and appreciation for the show and its characters, and then partook in the fandom, where I found all the wrong methods and actions, and I'm done sitting in a place where Lauren Faust's children are played with like fuck toys and plastic action figures you can smash against the floor.

    I am out. No more of this--I've served my time in this psycho ward, and I won't get bitten by this sickly serpent again. I sincerely hope those of you who love fiction continue writing and grow to be awesome at the art, if you choose to continue this path. Please... find something all your own, a world no one else has discovered, yet, and breathe life into it as it so deserves. Do not continue claiming love for something this pure and then doing nasty, traitorous things.

    It's not funny... that's just the false excuse we use to cover our asses. "I did it for laughs." No, you did it because you could, and the only way to cleanse yourself is to get off the addiction. Stop abusing this beautiful, pure thing to get high or get off or get your kicks.

    No more mixing alcohol with the kids' drinks. No more raping something so clean as this. "The Library Club" is as true a thing as I could ever write for this place and submit.

    KA-BOOM!

    Well, folks, I just popped over to my story, Hay Loft, and saw that it's broken 1,000 views.

    Not bad for a one-shot! And a feelsy-type one, too.

    Thanks, everybody! Together, we may clean up this site yet!

    "I Let Go..."

    It's time to ask a favor of you all, friends.

    Tell me what fics on here made you truly, completely get mentally lost in their reality. I'm talking senses--full sights, sounds, smells, tastes, feels, etc. Who among these authors have proffered legitimate illusions for you?

    "We Are Now Open for Beatings!"

    Hello, everyone! Despite the hazardous environment and extreme threat to your mental states of well-being, you have all come here, and I thank you for your brainless outstanding commitment!

    Now, here's the deal, ya'll:

    The HQ of Evil Tyrant Magnificent Bastard Inky Swirl is situated on the front lines of FIMFiction. His Bastardry's main source of cattle head comes from new fics that roll in fresh off submission and the feature box; other victims are obtained through much roaming and senseless clicking.

    However, His Bastardry's hunger is not yet satisfied... more stories must be ravaged with Inky's silver tongue in order to gain homeostasis.

    Homeostasis:

    The tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, esp. as maintained by physiological processes.

    THEREFORE!

    I am now opening the doors to the HQ for those who wish to willingly subject themselves to the Swirly Court's punishment and/or mercy. If you have a fic that must be blessed by a critical power higher than your own, usher it forth, and I may take pity upon its poor, weak little shell.

    (In English: I really enjoy helping people whose fics need improvement or a critical review; it benefits the author, the readers, and myself. In making writing better or analyzing it for flaws and strong points of fine quality, everyone involved gets better and feels better. So, if you'd like to swing something by me and see if (and how) I hit it, please, indulge me.)

    Also, if a subject of the land of FIMFiction sees a monster in the woodlands worthy of being hunted by His Bastardry, please point it out, and vengeance shall rain down in the form of knifing statements and hilarious images.

Applejack has a voice that will not leave her alone. It isn't just some crazy magic or hallucination--she feels something physically and hears somepony speaking. Night after night, she's pushed it away, but it keeps coming back to try again. What is it that this voice wants from her? Why does her chest hurt so much? What does it all mean?

I like the way that you conveyed Applejack's emotions. I wasn't sure where this was leading at first, but it seems very interesting and I look forward to more.

#2 · 113w, 6d ago · · ·

Cool i like:derpytongue2: also first

#3 · 113w, 6d ago · · ·

Nice, really nice bro, enjoyed a lot! have some mustaches :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

#4 · 113w, 4d ago · · ·

I just wanted you to know, that from the image, tags, description and length, I would not normally read this story.

I am only reading it because you wrote it. This is the same way I decide what books to read, so I don't see a problem with this.

#5 · 113w, 2d ago · · ·

You have me intrigued. Please continue.

#7 · 112w, 8h ago · · ·

And now I have read it. Quite nice. I like how it makes you want to give the poor little pony a hug while at the same time making her much more defined and relatable as a person.

You just really want AJ to get her own song next season, don't you?

Also, Apple Bloom is a 2 word name.

#8 · 107w, 6d ago · · ·

I was worried it would go dark at a certain point.  But it didn't, and I'm glad.  Wouldn't it be cool if she got so good her Cutie Mark modified itself?  Suddenly there were notes coming out of the apples?

Ya know what?

That would pretty awesome! :ajsmug:

#10 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

I need to read this for research purposes, to see how good writers write Applejack in non-shipping stories.

Congrats on makin' EQD's unusually-high fanfic standards by the way. :pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss::raritystarry::twilightsmile::yay::ajsmug:

#11 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Just finished the story :ajsmug:

#12 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Nice story. Your portrayal of Applejack was very believable and easy to empathise with and her dialogue with the 'voice' was very well done. For a lot of the time, I thought that the voice was the element of honesty speaking to her and helping her be honest with herself (which it still could be, I guess). That concept could be fun to play around with a bit in future stories. :twilightsmile:

#13 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

:heart: I think this is heartwarming :heart:

#14 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

What? We don't get to find out what happens next?

#15 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Awesome work, prose of a literary god.

#16 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

:rainbowderp: Well, dang. That one hit a lot closer to home than I was expecting.

She's got a good life on the farm, she knows her lot in life and she's happy. Or at least, she's convinced herself she's happy. And then a part of her asks, "Is it so bad to want something more? Is there a crime against wanting something else?" But she's comfortable; she doesn't want to ruin what she has, because it's good.

But it could be better. And she knows it in her heart. And her heart won't let her rest until she tries.

This story is so relatable that I felt like I was reading about myself rather than Applejack. Bravo. And bravo for plumbing the depths of her character; she's really unappreciated.

#17 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

When the first mentions of Applejack's heart came up I feared the story was going to take a dark turn. I was very glad to see the direction the story was going instead. Great story bro :moustache:

#18 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>1404863 I don't believe we need to - it's not the point. Whatever happens next, Applejack has given in and is following her dreams.

I liked this story. I'm not sure whether it couldn't do with a Sad tag, but it's a borderline case. AJ gets far too few stories dedicated to her character rather than her potential as a romantic partner. :ajsmug:

#19 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

I never wanted to be an apple farmer. I always... wanted to be a... A choir pony!

Performing in the beautiful theaters of upper Canterlot! Singing with the best symphonies in Equestria! The Hoofton Fillyharmonic! The Fillydelphia Symphony! The Maremon Tabernacle Choir!

With the my coltfriend Soarin' by my side, we'd sing, sing, sing!

Oh, I am Applejack, and I'm okay! I sleep all night and I work all day!:ajsmug:

#20 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

That was a great read. I think a lot of people, including myself, have these dreams and urges deep inside them that we're too afraid to follow. We're afraid of being judged, afraid of failure. I want to create music, but I listen to these great artists and bands and I feel so insignificant. We just have to keep pushing ourselves

Applejack would make an amazing singer. Let's hope she gets her own song in season 3 :heart:

#21 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

A really nice story I thought, and a great representation and development of AJ's character and personality. It was quite refreshing to read a story that didn't really go anywhere as such and included a cast of one yet still managed to be so much more engrossing and interesting than many others. Upon reading the blurb, I was interested to discover the nature of her ache and what it meant. I really don't know why, but I figured it might have been something so mundane as a heart condition that might have prevented her from doing what she loved. It was nice to discover it was in fact somewhat the polar opposite, enabling her to do what she wished rather than hindering her.

I touched on it before, but I really do think you did a fantastic job of representing Applejack's character to perfection. She is a stubborn character with simple honest beliefs and I found this to be reflected really well. The fact that her wishes and desires were manifested as a nagging ache in her height just sounds so like AJ to me, and that only someone as stubborn as herself could make her want to change. I'm not sure anything else would've really worked quite the same tbh, it just seems so fitting that AJ would not be moved by magic, or manipulation, but only by a persistent physical pain that is both simple and natural and quite at home with a character who labours hard day in and day out.

A very beautiful and well crafted piece, you should feel very proud of it.

#22 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

I loved that. A way of adding a new depth to Applejack's character without deviating from it.

Applejack is awesome, and you guys KNOW IT. :ajsmug:

#23 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1406620

That was beautiful, dude. I felt the feels. Thank you. :twilightsmile:

AS FOR THE REST OF YOU!

(Thanks, everpony. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I take pride from comments that reveal I've inspired or even touched some of you. It was a strange, emotional, unique experience for me in the writing--a very spur-of-the-moment idea that issued a command to my fingertips to start snapping the keys.)

Personally... I still can't get over the mental image of Applejack up in the hay loft with the doors open and the moon shining down, with her Stetson in her forelegs, giving it her all. It's just exquisitely beautiful to me, and it's like I'm seeing raw passion. Like an apple tree seedling making its way out of the ground, full of life and promise...

(Oh, God, Imma cry now, sonofabitch... :facehoof:)

DON'T LOOK AT ME!

#24 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

This here is a perfect example of how the way that something is written is more important than the events that actually occur.

#25 · 102w, 3d ago · · ·

*Reads over all the ancient comments... realizes that everything he wanted to say has already been said* Well... drat. I wanted to say that you're awesome, but apparently that's already been beaten into your skull. Guess all I can say is keep up the good work!

#26 · 101w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

This     is        awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy:

:moustache::yay:

enough said

but ill say more anyway

your character building for applejack is the best i have ever read for anyone like this

personal battles inside ones self are very important and this was extremely well done

please make more of these for other characters and continue this one if at all possible

this is one of my top favorites on the entire site and beyond

thank you

#27 · 48w, 5d ago · · ·

One of those creative stories I love so much. Nice work!
