    The Shining Armor is a Terrible Dad 2024 Competition

    Do you love Shining Armor? Do you hate Shining Armor? If your answer is yes to either/both of these, then this is the place for you! Shining Armor is a Terrible Dad is a sequel to Cadance is a Terrible Mom. The original contest was a success, and I've been itching to host another like it ever since. The premise is the same, only the roles are reversed: Write a story about Shining Armor being an awful parent.

    Portal Transformations Contest I

    Announcement and Rules (3 January 2024 to 7 March 2024)

    The most up to date version of this contest's rules is at https://www.fimfiction.net/group/217156/portal-transformations/thread/529551/portal-transformations-contest-announcement-and-rules. Please ask your questions there.

    Welcome to the Contest

    "When Spike goes through the Mirror Portal from Equestria to CHS, he turns into a dog. What does X turn into when X goes through the Mirror Portal (or a similar portal)? You can pick X and the direction."

    Myself (Mockingbirb), I'm especially interested in changes that are less usual, not so commonplace (although I suppose very unsual treatments of the 'usual' changes can be interesting too.)

    Cozy Glow Short Story Contest #4

    ⬇⬇⬇THIS COULD BE YOU!!⬇⬇⬇

    They said* it couldn’t be done. They said* the child was dealt with, problem solved, nothing more to see here. Rendered completely harmless as a statue. A grotesque chunk of frieze in the old gothic style, fallen from the ramparts of Canterlot Castle. A lawn gnome set in ambush to bemuse wanderers in Celestia and Luna’s precious hedge maze. No way could she inspire a single expression of overwhelming support, let alone three.

    The "New Blood" Contest

    [EDIT]: After some debating among the judges, we decided the minimum account age allowed will be 2020 instead of 2021. Makes more sense this way.

    At Bean’s Writing Group, we have always done our best to help authors, be they seasoned or novice, struggling or not, take their writing to the next level. But now we want to put the spotlight on the smaller, more recent authors – those who had joined way after the end of G4, and who might find normal contests daunting because of the competition of established, more experienced authors.

    This is a chance for you guys to shine and show what the new generation can bring to the table!

    For this contest, entries won't be confined to a specific set of characters, a genre, or any other narrow set of requirements. Instead, we will employ the system BWG is most known for: prompts.

    May Pairing Contest 2023


    It's once again May, and you know what that means: it's time to crackship!

    What is the May Pairings Contest?

    If you don’t know, the May Pairings contest is all about original, rare, or unique ships that aren’t afraid to explore unique dynamics between characters. This means that stories about Lyra and Bon Bon, Vinyl and Octavia, or Rarity and Twilight wouldn’t qualify. Rather, we want to see stories about Autumn Blaze and Lemon Hearts! Daring Do and Treehugger! Octavia and Applejack! You get the picture.

    Science Fiction Contest II (2023 Feb 05 - Apr 02)

    commissioned from: cereal

    It's happening again!

    About a year ago, a certain Science Fiction Contest transpired on this website. So many amazing stories were written for it that even the extensive results post was not enough to recognize them all.

    Let's see if we can do it again!

    From the moment you personally read this post, until 2023 Apr 02, the Science Fiction Contest II is officially open for submissions!

    What is Science Fiction?

Competition » Arboreal Yearnings Contest I: "I'd like to be a tree..." · 2:17pm Feb 25th, 2023

The most up to date version of this contest's rules is at https://www.fimfiction.net/group/216891/arboreal-yearnings-id-like-to-be-a-tree-fluttershy-said/forum. Please ask your questions there.

Welcome to the Contest

In my extremely UNscientific survey, stories about Fluttershy wanting to be a tree receive more than a hundred likes each, 'on average.' (I took the average over all the stories in the "Arboreal Yearnings" group.)

Don't you want to harvest this enormous Fluttertree/treepony/'firry' fanbase for yourself? You should write a story for the new "Arboreal Yearnings" group and contest!

Stories should be about a pony or other creature wanting to be a tree, becoming a tree, pretending to be a tree, or actually being a tree. A few example stories are in the group already.

Timberwolf stories go in their own special Dishonorable Creatures contest folder, where they can compete for their own Dishonorable Mention award.

Please show off your ability to write a meaningful, funny, thought-provoking, or even just startlingly original story.

May the chlorophyll be with you!


Put your contest entries in THE APPROPRIATE CONTEST FOLDERS: Arboreal Yearnings Contest I (Trees) or Dishonorable Creatures Contest I (Timberwolves.) You'll have to join the group for at least long enough to do that.

There is no limit to how many stories you can enter, or how long your story can be...but if a story bores me (or any other judge), your judge might not finish reading it.

Contest closes on April 22, 2023, at midnight Pacific Standard Time (US).

If this is your first story ever on fimfiction.net and you can't get it to pass fimfiction moderation before the contest deadline, you can send me (Mockingbirb) a link and password to read your story. It would help if you can do that a bit before the contest deadline, though.

I have no idea how many prizes will be awarded, or if there will be any judges other than myself.

So far as I know, the only things given to the winners might be 'honor and glory' and a bit of promotion, like being featured in the group and in my fimfiction.net blog.

No porn, please. Writing a story to NOT be M rated is its own art, and will make judging easier.

Please have fun, and good luck! :twilightsmile:

Edit 1: It would be nice if your story's "long description" links to the group's contest announcement / rules.

Oh hey, look at that, a contest that I could actually enter that sounds interesting.

Would love to try, but it depends on whether I can remember this thing or if I ever got enough time!:twilightsmile:

Estee… Firries… nuf said.

Just remember, Fluttershy is a social tree - and not one with knotholes :raritywink:

Perfectly Insane

This has nothing to do with the contest, I just wanna say I respect you as a writer. :)

Is a play ok?

Thanks, and sorry for the late reply. Been feeling burnt out lately. I'll try to have my story done by end of next week, it's a bit long. And I've settled for a song instead of a play, though I have worked a play into the details.


I am eager to see whatever you write! Of course, I also understand that there are parts of rl or even internet life that can take precedence. :twilightsmile:

Thank you! Also I had an older version of the page lying around in my tabs a few weeks back, and I distinctly remember reading on it that the deadline was set on March 24th. I'm relieved that the deadline was moved too.
