    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 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

Site Post » Merry Christmas · 12:22am Dec 25th, 2017

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!

A pony for Christmas sure would be a nice gift, cheers to everyone out there :twilightsmile:

Fluttershy in a box!? Yeah, I'm glad it's Fluttershy and not Dinky or Sweetie Belle because there's only so much cuteness I can take!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas to you too Knighty :twilightsmile:

And to all of you out there who may read this... I hope you all have a Merry Christmas :twilightsmile:

NOEL from Comrade Bagel Muffin
Gute Weihnachts-HerrEsel

I wake up and I say, "Yo! Merry Christmas!"

And then I diarrhea. Every single morning.


Merry Christmas, knighty. 🎄🎄🎄

I love the sense of community FimFiction brings to us, even though we not always recognize that. This site has been so important for me (and for many others, I believe) along these years, that I feel truly happy to be here today.

May you all have a great Christmas. :twilightsmile:

Merry Christmas. Cute Fluttershy.

Merry Christmas to you too! :twilightsmile:

What type of 3D image were you trying implement in that image or maybe a different one, were you trying to insert random char wondering around or the main cast playing on the field??

Year flew by faster than expected. All the same, merry Christmas!

Happy hearth's warming, Knighty. Thanks for all your work on the site this year.

Happy Hearth's Warming to all!

I don't know about you guys, but I plan on getting absolutely blasted to celebrate.:pinkiecrazy:

Merry Christmas to you too.:pinkiehappy:

Holly Jolly Christmas wishes, everyone!

Merry Christmas Knighty

Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism will win, Comrades! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Knighty! And Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you and to FIMFiction!

It is a time to rejoice! :pinkiehappy:

Thanks for working so hard on this site, and please forgive my complaints of a while ago. :ajsleepy:

The screenshot looks really good, even unfinished.

Merry Christmas to Knighty, his staff, and everyone, and may God go with you all! :pinkiehappy::ajsmug::yay::rainbowdetermined2::twilightsmile::raritystarry:

Merry christmas! That is very cool, I look forward to seeing it complete if you get time.

Merry Christmas!

That 3-d image looks good. Can't imagine how it would look as a finished product. Very well done when I compare it against the art style of the show.

I'll sing the holiday songs for now, but as soon as Christmas is over, I'll be singing the alternate version of winter wrap-up :pinkiecrazy: I like the frigid cold better than the blistering heat, but I still don't care for either.

Thank you for everything you do, knighty. :twilightsmile:

Except for that one thing. You know the one.

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas knighty, and Merry Christmas everyone!

Happy holidays peeps!~

Merry Christmas homies.

Happy Hearths Warming, Knighty!

And a Happy Appropriate Holiday to you as well, knighty; thank you so much for running the site for us. :)

Merry Christmas everyone:twilightsmile: and have a wonderful time with your family and friends!

FiMFictionVR? Merry Christmas! :rainbowlaugh:
