    A scheme for monetizing fanfiction website

    You want to read stories and you want to read good stories right?

    Look at patreon. They harvest lots of small amounts of money and gives it to creators. It makes money by taking a percentage.

    Fanfic is slightly different because it has a glut of creators. You cannot support all of them. In fact don't want to support most of them.

    New Story (The Rise of Demon King Spike)

    So... You see like three years ago I had this idea for a story. I thought this idea was really obvious and I wasn't really feeling it so I decided to just sit back and let someone else write it.

    Then about a week ago I browsed around looking for this story.

    Oddly I couldn't find it.

    Bronycan

    I'll be going to Bronycan on Saturday and Sunday. I seem to have committed an error in attending without ensuring I had people to meet there.

    Cons are a bit more like bars then I had expected.

    The Campsite

    It was a road like any other. It stretched between two settlements in the periphery of Equestria. Specifically it connected a minor hamlet that capitalized on an exotic fishery and the village where the nearest market was. Here it was the middle of such a road. Roughly equal distance between the two locations were few ponies traveled and fewer still met.

    The perfect honeymoon

    At last Shining Armor was alone with his beloved bride. He ran his eyes along her luxurious pink coat, her perfect figure, the bold wings that marked her Princesshood and at last lingered on her soft and kind eyes.

    Her lying eyes.

What's going on over here? · 3:34am Mar 20th, 2013

So what appears to be happening... Is that I am repeating myself. Kind of. But not in a bad way. Not really.

Sometimes a pear will do, is pretty much the same story as How to get to Equestria.

It's just bigger and more complex. It's not identical. The feel is probably a little different. But it is kinda the same.

This is pretty much what is happening with The Fitting and Vieled Violet.

Very similar, not identical and bigger and better.

Anyway. just thought I'd say.

Hm. I can sort of see where you're coming from. Both visitors arrive through the same means.

"Sometimes a pear will do" stood out to me because of the handling of the subject matter and the unique characteristics (and character) of each chapter.
In this light, "How to get to Equestria" could almost be seen as a sort of (spoiler if you haven't read it) "Changeling" chapter of "Sometimes a pear will do".
Even so, I don't feel as if "How to get to Equestria" exactly repeats anything from "Sometimes a pear will do" except for the means of arrival. They tell two very different stories and impart different feelings when read.
