    MLP BOX T-Shirt Contest

    Hey guys, MLP BOX are doing a competition for a t-shirt design to be included in one of their boxes, and since I know we have a mix of people here including artists, we thought it'd be a good idea to promote them so you guys can get in on it too. Below you can find more information about the contest:

    Brony.com and MLP BOX have launched the first in a series of "Design a MLP T-shirt" contests over on Brony.com.  The winning design, voted on by site visitors,  will not only be featured on a shirt but the winning designer will also win $1000 dollars pending approval of their design by Hasbro.   Second and Third Place will also receive a cash prize.  All winning designs will be printed and be made available in t-shirt form for sale through the Brony website.

    Patreon & Survey Follow Up

    First of all, reminder that we have a Patreon you can find at https://www.fimfiction.net/patreon . Apparently a lot of people didn't know we had one so there it is. $5 will remove ads on the site for you. I'll be making the Patreon page more prominent in relevant areas of the site soon to make sure people actually know it exists.

    Thanks everyone for filling in the survey last night. We had over 5,000 responses and I did in fact read every single comment left as they were coming in and finished reading them this morning. It seems there are a few features which we would potentially be interested in making premium features (part of the $5+ patreon rewards).

    • Custom emoticons you can upload
    • Custom titles / colours
    • Animated avatars
    • Avatar border frames
    • Extra themes
    • Custom CSS
    • Higher tier patreon rewards that let you “gift” premium?

    Merry Christmas

    Hope you all have a great day, wherever you are and however you celebrate Christmas / the holiday season in general!

    I was working on a cool 3d project for the site but unfortunately I never really had time to turn it into something useful. Have a screenshot anyway!

    Regarding leaked content

    Since there has been some confusion on the site message I somewhat hastily put up, I thought I'd post a blog post to explain things a bit better.

    As most of you probably know by now, yesterday a lot of confidential information regarding future episodes, seasons, generations, emails, etc was pulled from an FTP server. As with leaked episodes (and in fact, episodes in general or other links to copyrighted content) our policy is to not permit it to be posted. Discussion of the content, however, is acceptable. Infringement of these rules will be dealt with the same way we've dealt with posting of leaked episodes in the past.

    AShadowOfCygnus' "Cold Light" [Royal Canterlot Library]

    Today's story might offer up some cold comfort.


    Cold Light
    [Dark] [Human] [Sad] • 3,209 words
    [Note: This story contains sexual themes.]

    Even in our darkest moments, the stars shine coldly down — distant and remote, but bright in the blackness. Refuse them, shut them out, and they remain. Let them in, and they may convince you of the warmth in their embrace.

    This is not a story about stars.

    This is a story about people and ponies, and what they visit on each other in moments of darkness.

    SpinelStride's "Rarified Airs" [Royal Canterlot Library]

    Take flight into an alternate Equestria in today's story.

    Rarified Airs
    [Adventure] [Alternate Universe] • 44,226 words

    When the Windigos attacked, the ponies had to find a way to put an end to the distrust and anger that fed the frozen fiends. The unicorns found a way. No more earth ponies, no more pegasi, no more problem.

    A thousand years later, Princess Twilight Sparkle thinks that her ancestors may have made a mistake. Fortunately, she knows a way to test her hypothesis. She names that way 'Rainbow Dash.'

    Codex Ex Equus' "Changeling Courtship Rituals" [Royal Canterlot Library]

    You'll fall in love with today's story before you know it.


    Changeling Courtship Rituals
    [Romance] [Comedy] • 38,574 words

    For years, Twilight Sparkle and Queen Chrysalis have been at each other's throats. Both have experienced victory over the other, and both have experienced defeat. Out of all the creatures in Equestria, none despise each other the way the pony Princess and changeling Queen do. They seemed destined to remain locked in battle forever, or at least until one is finally dead at the hooves of the other. The cruel insults, the vicious loathing, and the powerful spells that have passed back and forth between them at each meeting have become the stuff of legend.

    Imagine Twilight's surprise when she finds out changelings consider this dating.

    And now they're married.

Site Post » Greetings from your new site owner! · 6:56am Apr 1st, 2013

First of all, I want to clear the air right away. Yes, knighty posted this news on April Fool's Day. Yes, he made the blog post very sarcastic and humorous. All of that was just to sort of cushion the impact, if you will. Some big changes are going to be coming under my banner, and they're going to start as soon as the move is all settled and everybody is up to speed.

First order of business is that big site changes are going to be less frequent now, and users warned in advance of their coming. While I do adamantly believe that almost all of knighty's redesigns and general updates have been good, and done for the good of the site, they are certainly quite jarring, especially when they happen out of nowhere. So we're going to slow down a bit on those. That doesn't mean the site will stay the same - we're always improving! - just expect it to be less frequent.

Now on to a more controversial change. From tomorrow onwards, no new human fics may be submitted to the site. This includes Human in Equestria fics, humanized fics, and any fics about the future Equestria Girls show (may be subject to change). As usual this is not retroactive so your current stories are safe. I understand this change is unlikely to be received well by the majority of our users, but I do believe that in the long run it will be healthier for the site. Humanized fics tend to cause nothing but issues, both for the users and the moderation team.

Those are the two big changes that I wanted to get out of the way early. Most of the other changes will be behind the scenes, and you probably won't even notice them, but they are all with the aim of improving the site. Again, I want to stress that the confusion is merely the result of some unfortunate timing, and these changes are almost certainly going through. Silly knighty!

RIP in pieces knighty, you will be missed.

Are you sure you read the blog post?

Aquillo #4 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 30 ·

I have absolutely no problems with any of this.

All hail Poultron.

Wait a minute...

What about Ponies on Earth fics? Or Pokémon on Equestria?

Or Crossovers with shows not starring miniature pastel equines? :fluttershysad:

xDan #7 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 1 ·

$$cash money$$

(User was banned for this post (Reason: "Shut the fuck up" -Poultron))

I'll wait till April 2nd to confirm all of this. :moustache:

well fuck, that sure did blind side me.

Poultron #10 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 81 ·

964884
No humans at all.

EDIT: I guess pokemon crossovers are OK as long as there's no humans involved.

Heil Poultronler :moustache:

1234 #12 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · ·

Once April Fool's Day passes, I will surely commence the shitstorm.
Until then...
:rainbowlaugh:
It's time to laugh for eternity... :trollestia:

Reactions are currently bottled up until April 2nd.

This seems interesting.

Does this mean you'll fix the mobile version, like reverting it back to what it should be?

964880i think so hold on...
Re reads very carefully...
Okay... Right... Gocha. Sorry bout that, i always get stuff mixed up in my head.
:derpyderp2:
Oh, what does gold mean? I got one and a buch of the poeple i know got one and theres a group claimbing it makes you superior now... Whats that about?

If you dont mind me asking dumb questions:twilightblush:

964895 So what about crossovers with non-human creatures with anthropomorphic qualities?

Or giant robots of the transforming variety?



I think your ban of the Human tag is a great mistake.


MONEYTIZE that shit! If they want to write humanized fic, they should pay for the priviledge!

$$$$$$

Next up, can we ban 2nd person shipfics?

But I was gonna write the sequel to Eternal... Eternal 2: The Mike Tyson Complex

So would that mean the majority of crossovers (as most seem to be crossed over with humans) will no longer be accepted?

Sorren #21 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 82 ·

no new human fics may be submitted to the site. This includes Human in Equestria fics, humanized fics, and any fics about the future Equestria Girls show (may be subject to change).

Okay, actually, I love you. Fuck you Knighty, I like Poultron better.

ALL HAIL POULTRON!

If you are serious about the "No Human" thing, I'm leaving. That is the reason I refuse to post to Equestria Daily.

"... users warned in advance of [big changes] coming."

"Oh, and by the way, no more HiE tomorrow."

:rainbowhuh:

Can you finish this Story?

I know it's on hiatus, and you'll be busy banning Regidar, but it is absolutely riveting....

sadron #25 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 2 ·

Well shit. Now the guy doing the Mass Effect crossover won't be able to do the part after the New Ponyville interlude... This change sucks... I know that some of them can be shit fics, but other ones are quite good. Don't just stop accepting human fics because of them...:fluttercry:

964912
I was considering this as well, yes. But I'm not entirely sure yet.

964926
You know what, that's a good point. I'll give everybody a week to flood the site with their terrible HiE fics before we switch over.

This will probably be the one exception to that rule. Apologies for that.

sadron #29 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 5 ·

964895 I see absolutely no reason for it and it blocks off a lot of potential fics simply because of this stupid change.

964929
Chances are slim.

Whitty #31 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 52 ·

The feature box shall rejoice.

Is this for f*cking real?

I like Human in Equestria stories.. I'm very sad to see you make this change. Is there any way we can get you to reconsider? Please? :fluttershysad:

964935
You drive a hard bargain, my friend. I shall put this to careful consideration.

>A week to flood the site with their terrible HiE fics

Oh Celestia, what have you done? :raritycry:

jp523 #37 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 28 ·

While I do believe HiE can be good, I am still overjoyed by this first change.

Long live Poultron.

xTSGx #38 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 2 ·

My jimmies have been placed in a liquid nitrogen cooled container until 12:00 AM Tuesday. If, at that time, it's revealed that this isn't a really elaborate April Fool's joke, a Loss of Coolant Accident will occur. The jimmies will rustle and overheat. At that point, they'll melt out of their container and cause a containment breach, melt through the floor, hit the water table, and cause an explosion that will irradiate half of North America. For everyone living in the Midwest and West Coast's sake, I hope it's just a prank.

If you want to be taken seriously, you may want to wait until the 2nd rolls around to clarify things. :unsuresweetie:

Edit: Whoa, I've got a gold bar! Sweet!

964895
one last question... knighty doesn't think the fandom is ending does he? do you think that? I ask because the phrase, "so long and thanks for all the (whatever)" is kinda my go to thing to say when i leave a sinking ship.
(Douglass Adams for the win)

Bendy #41 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 2 ·

Kill all Humans..........

Seriously though, if think this is indeed true we'll have to post HIE off this site.

I so happen to love Humans and Pony interaction stories, despite what my avatar would tell you.


Edit: As I said later here.

Unfortunately this also means an end to like 99% of crossovers.

Don't know why, but this post made me miss Knighty, a bit. Anyways, all hail our new lord, Poultron. Hope you make this site better.

First they came for the Greentext fics
and I didn't speak out, because I wasn't an idiot that used greentext

Then they came for MST3K fics
and I didn't speak out, because i had those on a different site

Then they came for humanized school fics
and I didn't speak out, because mine was close enough to an alt universe canon

Then they came for me
and there was noone left to speak for me

Oh thank goodness! I've recently been having the urge to write a first contact through dimensional rift sci-fi fic. Now I have every reason to ignore that terrible portion of my brain and focus on what really matters: mane six/OC ship fics.

I don't really read human fics that often anyhow. But I agree with whatever site changes you see fit.

xDan #47 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · 1 ·

I have a request.
Any time someone says the word "pony", ban them.
Any time someone says the word "ban", ban them too.
Any time a story is submitted, ban the submitter.
Any time a blog post is published, ban the poster and all who commented on the post.
Any time a PM is sent, ban both the sender and receiver.
Anyone who hasn't broken these will be banned on April 1, 2014.
The next day delete all the accounts and open the site up again, but rename yourself knighty first.
:moustache:

964909

964962
I'm not sure. He probably does. I'm not sure if it's ending or not myself, but fimficiton is certainly still popular enough to stay maintained. We still get about a hundred stories a day, after all!

cant tell if still a joke but i cant really find a shit to give
