TVTropes · 3:48am
Let me start off by saying I am someone who frequents TVTropes, better known as a "troper". I have an entire folder in my favorites/bookmarks for the TVTropes pages of my favorite shows and movies, including, of course, "Friendship is Magic".
Occasionally, I would check the recommended fanfics for "Friendship is Magic", just to see if there were any stories that I'd be interested in, mostly because I'm a little too lazy to scan through hundreds of stories on a website, even if I use tags or character selection to help make the search more...exact (I know there's a better word for what I'm trying to say, but I can't think of it at the moment). And, one day, I'm scanning through the recommended stories, and I find that someone had listed "Discord Did It", which, of course, made me very proud. I mean, I knew the story had done well (better than I ever expected, especially for my first Pony story), but this was a big deal to me, since this was basically someone saying that other people should read my story.
Well, a few weeks after I first saw "Discord Did It" on the recommended fic list, I was scanning through again to try and find some more stories to read...and found that "Discord Did It" was gone from the list. I got really worried, and wondered if I had apparently lost whatever had made the story worth recommending when I had last updated the story. So, feeling a little upset, I went to the main fanworks page for "Friendship is Magic", and decided to check out the stories that had their own TVTropes pages. And , as I was going down the list, trying to pick a page to look at, I saw six words that I never imagined I would see on that list in a million years: "Friendship is Magic Discord Did It".
I have no idea who made the page, but whoever you are, if you happen to be reading this post, I just want to say "Thank you". Just knowing that people really like my story is enough to make me smile like nothing else, but being as into TVTropes as I am, the creation of this page is like a dream come true...as cheesy as that may sound.
Below is a link to the page, if anyone wants to check it out. As a warning, there's not really a lot to the page at the moment.
((Note: The title of the TVTropes page comes from the title of the story on another website, where I have to include the name of the fandom before the title of the story, in case that confuses anyone.))
((Note 2: Also, I am very sorry that "Discord Did It" is still on hiatus. Thankfully, I have started writing again, but it's slow going. I will try to end the hiatus as soon as I can, but when that'll be I can't say. Hopefully this post makes up for it, at least a little bit.))
