Something that has been irritating me for the longest time is the frequency and general persistence of second person Human in Equestria clopfics in the Featured box. To me, it's a cheap way of getting upvotes and favorites through pandering to wish fulfillment.
Now granted, there are some examples of this that are done very, very well. There are even a couple in my own list of favorites. But it really cheeses me off to see on a regular basis the most popular stories of the moment are clopfics starring "you." Now, second person clop would not be as annoying if "you" were a pony or some other type of established species in Equestria. But no, it HAS to be human, because we don't want to envision ourselves as anything else in our desire to bang ponies.
I guess it especially challenges my suspension of disbelief (and that's hard to do in the presence of talking cartoon ponies) that everyone here just seems to assume that ponies will be sexually attracted to humans--Cloud Kicker gets a free pass because fanon consensus is that she'll do just about anybody that strikes her fancy for whatever reason. That's some dangerous assuming right there. Again, I have seen this done really, really well. At least authors like AnonymousPegasus TRY to explain why there's a human in Equestria first instead of just using the presence of humans as a given whilst rushing to get to the sex. Fun fact, the aforementioned author did a HiE clopfic about a black guy banging a female griffon (and he even had exposition explaining how and why humans were coming to Equestria, Celestia bless his heart). I seriously was overjoyed to see an original idea outside the "story starring you having your way with best pony" formula.
Sorry if I come off as a little bitch in this. I just really, REALLY needed to get that off my chest. But come on, if you guys want to read and write pony porn, at LEAST put some creativity in it. Hell, there was one awhile ago that had a human FEMALE banging ponies, and again, I liked the concept simply because it departed from the formula. Have some courage; try something that hasn't been done before. Where are the human on dragon fics? Those would be especially interesting just because dragon anatomy is not as established in fanon as pony anatomy. How about human on Diamond Dog? Or Diamond Dog on dragon? We can do better!
