A British Gentleman

I am a fan of many things, particularly the fine works of Sir Terry Pratchett (may he rest in peace). After spending a long time lurking, I have elected to create an account.

    Too Funny Not to Share

    Good evening, my fine ladies and gentlemen. I may be a touch late with this, but I feel it's too good to pass up on. Behold, fanfic, as written by predictive text:

    [Non Pony] Purest Snake Oil

    Good evening, my good ladies and gentlemen. I hope to find you alive, well and, preferably, tipsy.

    A video recently dropped on YouTube, concerning the vexing topic of Anti-Vaxxers. Some of it, however, featured a firm called Coseva. A seller of outrageously overpriced snake oil, it's claims about its products are mindbogglingly stupid and wrong.

    I Really Hope That This Guy is a Troll

    Good morning, my good ladies and gentlemen, and a Merry Christmas to all.

    I'm hoping that the guy I'm about to show you is a troll, but, having looked at his posting history, there's a very real chance he's the real deal. If so, I present to you the least self-aware arsehole on the internet. As you read that statement, consider the state of the competition...

    Excelsior, Stan Lee. You Will be Greatly Missed

    [Non-Pony] CERN Controversy: An Impartial Scientist's Perspective

    Greetings my good ladies and gentlemen. I hope to find you well.

    For the benefit of anyone who hasn't been following the news on the matter, an Italian physics professor, Alessandro Strumia, was invited to participate in a workshop on gender in physics by Cern, with an audience largely composed of young, early career (Ph.D students and Postdocs) female physicists.

Rare Story Prompts Contest #02 [Closed] · 7:13pm May 19th, 2018

Greetings my good ladies and gentlemen one a fine late spring evening.

Following on from our successful first contest, it is my pleasure to present the logical follow up. Thus I am proud to present our second prompt.

For your enjoyment:

Stallion on Earth

HiEs, as has already been established, are dirt, dirt common. Less common, but by no means rare, are PoE fics, which is to say, pony on Earth.

Almost all of these, however, feature mares. Which is hardly surprising, given the main characters of the show. Let us, then, give the chaps a chance.

As with last time, judging will be two people, A British Gentleman and BatwingCandlewaxxe. Again, the prize will be a review of any fic of the winner's choosing, to be written by A British Gentleman.

Four weeks will be allowed to write entries. Please read the rules thread, and post a link to your entry here, as a reply to the contest thread.

The contest Rules, so there is no confusion:

These are the general rules for the contests that shall be held by this group. These will be friendly contests with a good variety of fics welcome and encouraged; if you think you can get away with it, then you almost certainly can. If still in any doubt, feel free to ask.


In order to qualify, your story must not only feature the prompt, but have the subject of the prompt be featured in such a way that the story would no longer function without the prompt. In short, so long as the prompt is there and is a core element of the story, you’re good. Subversions of the prompt are allowed.


You must have linked your submission in the relevant contest thread, with a reply to the OP. Unpublished stories are fine, providing a link to the submitted story page on Fimfiction is on hand.


You may not have begun this story prior to reading the prompt.


Fics can be up to 20,000 words long!


Mature rated fics are not allowed.

If anyone has any questions, or requires clarification, please feel free to ask. Good luck, and enjoy your writing!

Contest will close at 9 am Eastern Time, on 19th June, 2018
