    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 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!

    Post-update

    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.

    Correct the Record winners: Aragón's "Evil Is Easy, Governing is Harder" and HoofBitingActionOverload's "Spring is Dumb" [Royal Canterlot Library]

    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
    [Adventure] [Comedy] • 18,246 words

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

    Arrival

    You know, there comes a moment when you just need to rebrand. To shack off the shackles of previous incarnations of failed ideas. Mozilla have been brave enough to rebrand no longer as a web dinosaur (ugh, how nerdy and obselete) and usher in a new age of sleek, modern, hip, pop visual design with their new logo. You can see their stunning work here https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/arrival/

    You'll notice they also include lots of "memes" to show how new and cool the logo is.

    Well, we at Fimfiction are not going to be left behind. This is why I am proud to present the new Fimfiction logo!

I wanna know when this is over, so I can review the entries. There've been quite a few fics already I'm interested in reading!

You didn't steal it if I gave it to you! :derpytongue2:

HapHazred, your icon is cracking me up. But don't you want to try!?

Want to try to pump out a 2000-6000 word story in less than 10 hours?

In my mother language I can write 2000 words in 2-3 hours.

It's... gotten disturbingly routine for me to put out somewhere around 4k an hour when I'm motivated.

I submitted my story! Super excited!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this year! :raritystarry:

4446128 Well, I omitted to mention that over the course of the allotted month I did actually finish and submit my entry.

I just don't want to do it again in 10 hours.

4445817 Challenge accepted. (Got it in RIGHT at the last second.)

4446430 Neato.

I never liked leaving this one to the last second because of timezone shenanigans.

Now I just have to wait until the entry list is up so I can read them.

Posh #13 · March 7th · · ·

4445924 I hope you like mine. It's about the Cake Twins fulfilling an ancient alien prophecy involving Celestia's cutie mark and fifteen acres of toxic run-off from Granny Smith's fast food chain, which is actually a front for a meth empire.

I call it "Batter Call Saulestia."

Hey, EFNW, I sent you my entry via Google Doc link since it wasn't up on FiMfiction yet, but now it is. Probably a better reading experience here on the site, so here it is. Hope y'all like it!

"Freedom Flourishes"

Submitted my story a day before deadline; now anxious to see if it was actually accepted.

(Not that I expect it to win- it's fluff- but I'd at least like it to be read.)

Must be a very difficult judging process.
