    New Sadfic Story Releasing Today

    Thank you everyone for promoting the success of The Sticky Showdown. It was in the featured box for 5 whole days, and that's an impressive length of time. Around the same time that I wrote Sticky Showdown, I also wrote another fic. It's called Apples to the Core, and it's about the "Pinkie Apple Pie" episode, or at least, what could happen after it if both Pinkie and Applejack were still dating. I'm linking Sticky Showdown because it's still a shipping story, in a sense. The first chapter won't feel like it, but the second and possibly third chapter will.

    It is a sadfic, but I have a happy ending planned. Thank you to anyone who bothers to read it. Your responses are what keeps me writing. What a surprise, writers who write remotely good sadfics need acceptance. WHO KNEW.

    No but srsly I love you all.

    Volunteer Editors (Or Friend's Eyes) Wanted For Future Fics

    Just like the title says. I'm coming back into writing, so I'm wondering if anyone would like to help me edit my future publications. A few notes:

    I have EQD in mind for every submission so I have a high bar for editors (no offense to anyone)

    Editors must either have Skype or know how Google Docs works.

    As for the friends I mentioned... I don't really want to send out 50 skype messages so this is for you guys. If any of you are interested in getting PMs on the beta versions of my upcoming fics, let me know. I'll happily send them and would love any feedback given ^_^

    I appreciate any submissions either way. Thank you and have a nice day, and also thank Knighty for the new bookshelves function. It's neat.

Princess Celestia is losing control of her political power. The system is slowly crumbling due to the inverse relationship between harmony and "freedom". With the invitation of television sets, the internet, and instant coffee machines, "freedom" becomes the preferred theme of the Celestian empire as opposed to harmony.

With no other options (or perhaps due to a stroke of genius), Princess Celestia brings a self proclaimed expert on "freedom" to Equestria along with his entire family to create a new show with familiar roots: The Coltbert Report.

How will his family handle the new Equestrian life? Will Stephen Coltbert be able to return harmony to the land with his mixture of satire and wit? Only time and hundreds of episodes will tell.

Join Stephen Coltbert as he provides the conservative viewpoint on Equestria so that you don't have to.

And now a collab between you and Daily Show Ponies would be perfect.

#3 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

Interesting premise. If you can pull of Colbert's satire and wit, I can guarantee that this story will indefinitely be featured! :eeyup:

The great thing about this is that "Coltbert" is pronounced the same as "Colbert." The T's are silent.

#6 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

I recommend the center tags for your breaks.

I haven't read this yet and I already know this is going to be incredible.

As big a fan as I am of the Colbert Report (I mean like, a ridiculously huge fan), I just couldn't really get into this chapter.  The biggest issue for me is that the dialogue felt really stilted.  I mean, I've watched interviews with Stephen Colbert out-of-character, and he sounds nothing like what you've written.  Plus, the whole concept of being plucked from your world, dropped into another, and then asked to learn up on the local politics and history in order to do a comedy show on it seems kinda...well, creepy, for a start. A pain in the butt. Probably not the ideal situation to come up with brilliant comedy.

I think what would have been funnier (and now I'm crossing the gap from commenting on the story as it exists to saying how I would do it, which I admit might be a dick move on my part, but I hope it illustrates what my expectations for the fic were when I saw the title) is rather than having Stephen Colbert the human turned into a pony and teleported to Equestria, you just start out with a pony/Equestrian version of Stephen Colbert and just jump right into him doing an episode of his show. No complicated origin story, no issues about the well-being of the character or how he gets along in Equestria, and you can introduce the politics of Equestria through the comedy of the show, so you get to jump right into the real meat of the story.  But, like I say, this is just how I would imagine doing it, so maybe there's something to your approach I'm not picking up on yet.

Stephen Colbert literal crossover? Sign me up!:pinkiehappy:

I was planning on doing just ponified versions of the shows, but I found that I would get bored of this very quickly. It's called a prologue because the meat of the story isn't there yet. The first chapter of your fiction is very well done, but not something that I want to rinse, lather, and repeat. Variety is the spice of life and status quo is the starch. I tagged the story as an adventure because, quite frankly, this is what it's going to be. If it wasn't, the definition of the story would simply be, "Join Stephen Coltbert as he provides the conservative viewpoint on Equestria so that you don't have to."

Plus, my author's note says that episode 1 will be the next chapter.

The pacing is intentional, but if Colbert seems out of character, I can concede to that. I've only seen a few clips of him out of character. His Playboy interview, his character breaking when he testified for the Mexican workers, and the few breaks that he does on his show.

#13 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

I am really hopeing this turns out well

Hopefully i can say this without it being a lie later

Looool

#15 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

Hmm, lemme give this a read...

#16 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

A good reason to change a human to a Pony when taking them to Equestria would be due the the different diseases. We would not want a plague to start in Equestria because of the common cold you know.

#17 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

so much potential!!!!!! please know what you are doing! please please please please please!!!:rainbowkiss:

#19 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

I'm interested to see what exactly Celestia's concerned about. Is she unconsciously demonizing new ideologies? Is Equestria really being corrupted? Or is society unaware of its problems, and needs the Colbert Bump?

Also, is who's the new Jim? Is he a Rush fan too?

Not much to say on the writing side of things this early. The dialog was formal to the point of being stale, but then again it WAS business talk. I'm left wanting seconds.

#20 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

You bungled an opportunity to make a "purple mountains" joke when Colbert saw the exterior environment for the first time. Equestrian mountains could actually be purple.

I'll give you an actual in-character chapter, but so far I'm not digging it.

#21 · 94w, 1d ago · · · Prologue ·

Thank the lord some one finally made a Colbert report.

#22 · 94w, 23h ago · · · Prologue ·

Huh, Colbert in Equestria? I've heard of ponies on the daily show but this is new. Cool:twilightsmile:

#23 · 94w, 23h ago · · · Prologue ·

You, fellow brony, have my attention. subbed! :rainbowdetermined2:

Equestria Again: Rebecoming the Harmony We Never Weren't

*Auto-follows and likes because Coltbert. Will read later*

#33 · 94w, 11h ago · · · Prologue ·

I admit, this is an entertaining read. However, you may want to be careful of the dialogue. A good portion of it feels forced.

#34 · 94w, 10h ago · · · Prologue ·

Won't this be interesting...

#35 · 94w, 10h ago · · · Prologue ·

Freedom at odds with harmony?

No, 'anarchy' is at odds with harmony.

'Stupidity' is at odds with harmony.

'Selfishness' is at odds with harmony.

'Apathy' is at odds with harmony.

An intelligent, sensible, compassionate, empathetic, generous person can have absolute freedom and will never do anything 'bad' due to it being against his or her core personality.  Such a person will innately desire harmony and do only things which bring about harmony.  This is confusing abstract social concepts with personal responsibility and interpersonal relationships.  

#36 · 94w, 10h ago · · · Prologue ·

Okay,  I was expecting this chapter to be the show, but I can wait. Fav'd

#37 · 94w, 10h ago · · · Prologue ·

>>1937438

You are correct. I'm referring to American "Freedom". Perhaps I should have been more specific.

#38 · 94w, 10h ago · · · Prologue ·

>>1937444  That would be 'consumerism'.  :raritywink:

#39 · 94w, 10h ago · · · Prologue ·

Lets see where this goes

#40 · 94w, 8h ago · · · Prologue ·

...

Humans in Equestria isn't stupid... as long as it is not about some depressed, 22-year-old white male that has a bad life and kills himself.

Fav'd!

Great start.  Had to read it between breaks since I was watching Daily Show and Colbert at the time.  :derpytongue2:
