    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:

    Brony.com and MLP BOX have launched the first in a series of "Design a MLP T-shirt" contests over on Brony.com.  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 https://www.fimfiction.net/patreon . 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

    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.'

    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.

I will also be there this weekend

Welcome to germany :rainbowwild:

So how can one recognize it is you/ how to find you?

I, too, shall be there

4907891
I'm going to be there too, please PM me if you wanted to scription of what I look like

4907894
Well, asking younger girls for what they look like and to meet them at galacon sounds a bit creepy in my ears. :raritywink: Still if you make a puplic post about your visit there or something and I notice you there, I say hi. :twilightsmile:

(Was ich meine ist, sollten wir uns per Zufall begegnen freue ich mich natürlich darüber und unterhalte mich gerne mit dir, aber es wäre komisch explizit nach einer Beschreibung deiner Person zu fragen. Also wenn du einen generellen post darüber machst wie man dich erkennt, halte ich nach dir ausschau:pinkiesmile:)

Just for all people going there too, it will be HOT! 🌞 ( > 30°C) We have a heatwave in germany at the moment. Be prepared :raritywink:

gonna be there as well. Hope it won't be too hot :rainbowlaugh:

4907898

( > 30°C) We have a heatwave in germany

Europe must be great if your heatwaves are only 30°C.

Bad Horse started this group to help people to plan/meet up/whatever, if they wish, at conventions.
There is an entry for Galacon.

4907916
Remember that not all Europeans have air conditioning though.

Huh. Apparently Fimfiction's Block button doesn't work.

I'll say hi to you right now, cutie

Do you accept drink and chat invitations from strangers?

Hope to see you all there!

4907941
Without conditioning. Unless my thermometer is broken. It is 50°C I am literally dying of heat, while chugging down the water like crazy.
This is Lithuania btw. I don't know, and don't wanna know how hot it is in desert countries.

P.s. That's the temperature in an apartment.

Try 97 with a heat index of 105

I'll have my name badge on. I'm fairly nondistinctive otherwise unfortunately

4908069
With the amount of people at the con it will be difficult to find you then:twilightoops:

Do you think you could post how your clothes look like or better your location during the con here at some point. I think it would be great to meet you in person for once, but finding you in a mass of people only by your small badge seems unlikely. At least if you don't gather a crowd around you of course:raritywink:

Edit: And there could also people who simple write your name on their badge and fake to be you if there is no option to really tell it is you.

Somehow i doubt people will fake being me :p I'll wear my fimfic tshirt at least one of the days which is pretty easy to see

Don't forget to stay hydrated, Knighty:rainbowwild:

4907916
it also depends on what you are used to in your own country. Over 30°C does not happen very often over the year, so we are not that used to it. Just talking with a friend who lives in Canada where it was over 40 not long ago makes me sweat :rainbowlaugh:

4907916
Well for germany it is hot, not for all of europe.

Average german summer is 20-25° and rain half of the time. Now we have 38° and no rain for two weeks :fluttershbad:

4908095
Ok so it will be a game of find waldo knighty, first one spot him wins :rainbowwild:

Edit: Well, you could have told that there is a photo of you hidden in your blogs:derpytongue2: That makes finding you 20%cooler easier:trollestia:

Hab Spaß! (:

Curses.... i have summer college classes and im broke af. No cons for me this year. Send many pics so i may see!!!

Am I going to see you at Family Feud or Trixie Wants YOU! ? :moustache:

No I'm just sort of ambling around

Not there, but I am back in Germany for the weekend, so I'm saying hi from afar. :twilightsmile:

4909214
Still hard to find:rainbowwild:

I'm gonna wear my fimfic shirt tomorrow. I get nervous so I dunno why I made this post in retrospect >_>

4909271
Don't you worry knighty, germans don't bite and galacon is a friendly place:twilightsmile: By the way have you seen the sphinx? That was cool cosplay:raritystarry:

It just would be nice to meet you in person foronce when one get the oportunity:pinkiehappy:

4909162
Trixie wants you was great, wasn't it?:pinkiehappy:
Was you part of the Players?

4909292
I wasn't, was a bit late to sign up sadly.
Did you hear about the short-term writing contest from the Blind Brainstorm workshop though?

Damn. I'm in Germany now as well, and I was really thinking of visiting Galacon once again (I was there in 2014).
but I kinda just... didn't. Dunno why. Probably because I stopped being as interested and as active in the community as I used to be.
Anyway, have fun guys

4909332
No, so far I only know that 'red hat brony' make a panel about writing tomorrow.

I live in Denmark and I remember watching the Galacon livestream in 2012.

Did anyone see the new Equestria Girls Special teaser at SDCC?

Wish I could see this sooner. Was also in galacon

I think I saw you at the Writing Panle on Sunday, but I'm not sure :derpytongue2:

I was at the front and had my fimfic shirt on

4910525

I was the guy a few seets right from you. Was arguing with myself if I should say hi, but I'm just too shy sometimes :fluttercry:

4910531
I know that feel bro. I thought I saw you glancing at me :p

4910544
oh gosh xD
I first saw a glimpse of your name on the tag and after that I tried to look closer without being to obvious :rainbowlaugh:
