    Friendship is Optimal is Science Fiction

    On this 11th anniversary of the release of Friendship is Optimal, I’d like to remind everyone that it’s a piece of speculative fiction and was a product of it’s time. I’ve said this before in other venues, but Science Marches On and FiO did not predict how things have turned out. The world looks very different.

Congratulations, man!

It is a seminal classic of the pony genre.

I looked at it at 2996 and thought -- this is getting close to 3000 -- and yep here it is.

In the spirit of that, second story?

dang :O gj

Happy 3000!

Thank you for creating it and inspiring the rest of us.

I can certainly imagine it! Friendship is Optimal was the second FiM fic I ever read, so it was likely partially responsible for all the other pony stuff I've said and done. Also, it's still one of the best works of literature I've seen.

Congrats; it's well deserved!

Seriously though man, FiO was amazing. Thank you for writing it.

Neat. Friendship is Optimal is one of the best things to come out of pony fan fiction, so congratulations.

I really need to read that story again.
It's so gud:heart:

Celestia is Best Pone afterall:heart:

I'm definitely glad you wrote it! Friendship is Optimal is what led me to discover the world of ponies in the first place! :twilightsmile:

It also makes for such an excellent backdrop to explore ideas relating to the singularity, and reading everyponies' interpretations has been great. Additionally, it has even led me to discover the joy of writing, so that's a triple blessing of satisfaction for me! :yay:
