    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.

    Fimfiction now has a patreon! The main reward you can get from supporting to the site is an ad-free experience.

    Fimfiction Issue Tracker

    Hey guys,

    Held off a bit on posting this as a site post because I didn't want it to get flooded while we were fixing things, but I think the site is now in a fairly good place so I can post this. We now have an issue tracker on Github that you can submit issues to.

    Issue Tracker

    You will have to register on Github to post issues.

    Please read the frontpage before adding issues.

    Many thanks!

    Hey guys,

    So, there were indeed a lot of issues with this update. There was such a vast amount of code change with this update that my testing didn’t catch some of the specific config issues that appeared especially with some slightly older iPads and such. I apologise for all of the woes. I appreciate that such times can be frustrating as a user who just wants to read some pony fics, but just know they are just as frustrating for us as developers who have poured months of work into these updates.

    My apologies for the lateness of this feature posting. Rest assured, I have sacked myself. -Ed.

    Our recent "Correct the Record" contest asked readers to help us choose authors whose previously spotlighted stories weren't the best showcase of their writing strengths.  Today, we're offering a double feature with two of our three contest winners!

    Evil is Easy, Governing is Harder

    One day, just like that, Celestia decides she's going to go mad with power.

I r da charityest

I'll probs be there. I expect it to be horrible. :trollestia: Don't let me down, knighty.

the stream will probably be really boring
as usual
but i might watch it anyway.
win me over, knighty.

I wish I had money to donate. :fluttercry:

I'll probably pop in when I get a chance to after work. :moustache:

Best of luck!

I hate to say it but I have no money to spear.:fluttershysad: After reading who they're do this why would people bully kids that bad?

For a second I thought this would be directed towards a specific person. Glad to see it's for a charity organization and not specific people.

I dot have any money:twilightblush:

but ill come :pinkiehappy:

A shame the yearly Vinesauce Japonies stream will be happening on the same date.
Oh well, I might try to donate and check out the stream during a break if there's any.


man i wish i had some money to donate but im only 17 and i don't have a job yet :fluttercry:

One of the first things I am doing tomorrow is making certain that I have the donation pre-authorized through my bank. Where as the charge is going to an overseas location, I need to pre-approve this.

Site Owner

1809079 You shouldn't need to worry because justgiving should handle it

90% for charity
10% for the site

1809086 It is a thing within my own bank. I cannot even get Skype Premium for a month without pre-authorizing it through them. Once I let them know, they will know that they can OK the payment.

Is this something that will be done every year? I'm hoping so, because I do like this.

1809072 I've known people younger with jobs...

Ill be donating Money all The way from norway

I'd like to donate, but I'm barely staying afloat as is. Sorry. :pinkiesad2:

Want to donate but I'm basically broke! Any other way I can help?

It wasn't much, but I donated, and it feels good :pinkiesmile:

Site Owner

1809147 Share the stream with everyone you know!
1809148 Thanks so much!

What is this stream about?

Site Owner

1809190 Check the link for the stream info and scroll down

1809192 donating 50 on payday..... Too bad i cant make it tomorrow

Read it :pinkiehappy: I should of done that first :rainbowlaugh: Thank you!

I heard the voice actors from mlp fim sent him personal messages in the characters voices.

If only they took dogecoins.

If only you took a shower.

EDIT: Just kidding! Basically nowhere takes Dogecoins at the moment, though.

1809269 []

what currency?

The website supports a lot of currencies. You can donate in whatever your native currency is!

1809360 I use the Pokemon bank, can I make an exchange?

Just donated. See, I can be a good person too!

Miller Time or healthy conscience?Mill-:fluttershysad: ok $20 i guess come tommorrow. :scootangel:

Just sent in my donation. I'll try to be present for the stream for as long as I can.

What are the donations for?

This is a really good thing you're doing. Mom says I can't donate, however, because I already did the st. Judes math-a-thon donating. I'd be lucky if she changed her mind in the next 5 hours.

Sorry, but my mom banned me from donating to anyone. I'm not trusted with money, in the form of cash or a gift card. I would donate if I could, though!

I'm running a bit low on the funds but I'll donate anyway. Any honest cause deserves some help.

>free commission
>donate at least $10
That's like saying that the shitty Gameloft pony game is free :rainbowwild:

I'm so sorry, but I don't have any money to donate, but this is an amazing thing you are doing! It makes me happy to see people doing such kindnesses because they want to

Just donated what I could. Hope it helps.


The X in front of the announcement doesn't work. I have no way of donating anything besides maybe offering a commission story chapter (+/- 15,000~20,000 words depending on the idea).
Make the X work. Announcement is in the way.

It's secretly a drive to fill Knighty's wallet. But he won't tell you that.

And you didn't hear it from me.

Donation: Made!:scootangel:
Happy to help!:pinkiehappy:

Sadly I don't have any money to spare. It's tight as it is for me, but I will make a shout out for this on my Youtube channel. Hope that helps.

What is this!? :trixieshiftright:

where do the donations go

For what this site has done for me, I'll gladly donate.

Mewball ( has kindly offered a free commission which you can win if you donate at least $10.

What "free" in that if you already spent money on it? Your declaration - deception.
