    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: and MLP BOX have launched the first in a series of "Design a MLP T-shirt" contests over on  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 . 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?
    • Mass story download
    • Banners
    • Automatic day/night theme selector
    • Free advertising slots?

    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.'

Site Post » - Now owned by Facebook! · 2:40pm Apr 1st, 2014

Hey folks! It's been quite a momentous year for Facebook, and moving on through 2014 we'd like to purchase even more companies to assimilate them into our "social" network. It's definitely about being social and not about peddling products or selling your data or anything.

Thus, I'd like to announce our latest purchase;! Following our recent purchase of Oculus VR, fimfiction seemed like an obvious next step. Fanfiction can clearly be enhanced with more ad....venturous settings. Imagine reading a fanfic and the world comes to life around you full of ad....renaline pumping moments.

Don't worry, this purchase can only be good for Fimfiction, with our infinite amount of money and resources how could anything go wrong? Soon you'll be able to share all your favourite clopfics with your friends and family, and best of all? You don't even have to do anything! Just log in to the site and your entire browsing history will be available for your closest family to enjoy. Isn't sharing great? Starting tomorrow, all accounts must use their real name and address to use fimfiction. This means we can target ad....orable, cute shipping stories to you!

We'll also be changing the feed to further emphasise the social aspects of the site. We'll be adding the ability to post status updates so you can let everyone know when you're eating a delicious lunch, or even just that you woke up!

We hope you guys are as excited about this acquisition as we are!

btw we sacked knighty

Thumbs up to the future!
