    PSA: Using AIs to Write and Publish Stories in Fimfiction

    Hello everyone, this is a PSA (Public Service Announcement, for those of ESL) to put to rest consistent questions about using AI to 'write' stories and publish them here. This is not intended as a poll or a request for feedback. It is exclusively a clarification on an already-existing rule.

    People ask: "Can I, oh great and powerful D, post a story or chapter that I got ChatGPT to write for me?!"

    And the answer, my friend, is... No.

    Absolutely not. Not in a thousand years!

    Because you didn't write it.

    It is not your creation. You are NOT the author. In fact, you are the opposite.

    There seems to be some confusion when interpreting the following rule:

    Don’t Post (Content)

    Jinglemas 2022!

    Jinglemas is the annual tradition on Fimfiction to exchange stories around the holidays with users on the site. This single event allows all Fimfiction users to come together and celebrate the reason for the season. Ponies!

    Enroll in this Secret-Santa-style gift exchange to request a holiday themed story, to be written secretly by another participant during the month of December. And in turn, you will be tasked with writing someone else's request. Then all the stories will be exchanged at Christmas! Simplicity itself! Thanks to the hard work of the Breezies, everyone will be ensured to get their gift!

    Phishing Awareness

    Have you ever found yourself in a situation like this?

    And then you magically find yourself in a suspiciously familiar site, except that you're not logged in, and it requires you to do so?

    Well. Don't log in. This is a scam, and a cheap one at that. 

    There've been recent attempts to obtain Fimfiction users’ personal data, like passwords and/or emails through links like the one I'm making fun of above. And a distressing amount of people don't seem to know what phishing attempts are.

    If you HAVE entered a site like this and put in your data, make sure to follow these basic steps at least.

    All Our Best [Royal Canterlot Library]

    As should be obvious from 15 months without a feature, life has taken the Royal Canterlot Library curators in different directions. While there’s still plenty of awesome stories being written in the My Little Pony fandom, we’re no longer actively working to spotlight them, and it’s time to officially draw the project to a close.

    Thank you for all of your support, suggestions, and comments over the years. We’re grateful to have been able to share seven years of exemplary stories with you, and give more insight into the minds behind them. In the spirit of the project, please keep reading and recommending fantastic fics to friends—the community is enriched when we all share what we love.

    Reunions: A Swapped Roles Contest!

    Okay guys here's something fun presented by Nitro Indigo.

    Presented by me, I guess, but I digress.

    Last year, I (Nitro Indigo) noticed that there was a surprising lack of roleswap fanfics on this site. To fix that, I decided to run a roleswap contest over the summer themed around secrets. While it didn’t get many entries, it nevertheless attracted the attention of some big authors and was the origin of two of my favourite fics. Overall, I think it was a success, so I’ve decided to run another one!

    Minor Rules and Reporting Update

    Hope everyone is enjoying the new year.

    Some small changes have been made to our rules as well as to the reporting process.


    "No attacks directed at individuals or groups due to race, gender, gender identity, religion or sexual identity."

    This better clarifies our previously ill-defined hate speech rule and includes groups as well as individual attacks.

    "No celebration, glorification or encouragement of real life criminal activity."

    This includes past, present and potential future crimes.

    "Ponyfic: There Can Be Only One" wrap-up [Royal Canterlot Library]

    We're still recovering this week from the fandom's final Bronycon.  (In some cases literally — a con-crud-ridden Horizon is dragging himself out of bed to write this.)  So in lieu of a Bronycon-week feature, we'd like to talk a little bit about the panel we hosted to find THE FANDOM'S BEST FANFIC™.

    We've got a full writeup on our website — including the complete bracket of 16 fics in contention for the title; shout-outs to great fics which we couldn't fit on the shortlist; and the full results of audience and curator voting.

    Our hearty congratulations to Monochromatic's "The Enchanted Library" for taking the BEST FANFIC title in an upset victory over our #1 seed!  We'll be running an interview with Monochromatic as soon as possible.

    Come See Us at Bronycon! [Royal Canterlot Library]

    The run-up to Bronycon has been a mad whirlwind of RCL activity!  Five curators are attending (two for the first time!), and one of us is an official community guest. Several of us are participating in the Golden Oaks Bookstore (as author, author and publisher).  And we're even running a panel!

Site Post » Jinglemas 2019 · 12:16am Dec 24th, 2019

There's truly no time like the holidays. What's better than copious amounts of food, quality time with family and friends, hearing the sweet sound of Trans-Siberian Orchestra on repeat, and unmanagble financial stress from our capitalist overlords?

Gift exchanges of course!

Our Own Little Way of bringing Hearth's Warming to Fimfiction

Jinglemas is one of the longest running, as well as largest brony gift exchanges on the internet! The concept is simple: You request a very simple story with a few small details, and someone writes you a story! But that also means you'll be secret santa for someone else and write them a story!

Over the years of running this event we've listened to community feedback and focused on ensuring that every single participant will always get a story for the holidays, which is why we keep track of all the participants and enforce some very simple rules on those who may join with less than innocent intentions. That way everyone gets a story, and there's no bad feelings to be had for the holiday.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, you should check out our Jinglemas Group! Or if you prefer something more Mature, you can check out the JingleClop group.

The results for Jinglemas 2019 are in! And I'm sure you can already find many of our wonderful contestants dominating our site's feature box. However, don't let looks decieve you. We nearly crossed 100 contestants this year with our two events combined. Check out some of our awesome contestants that have forwarded me their story below! If you'd like to see ALL of the stories as well as previous years entries, be sure to check out our folders on the Jinglemas Group! Keep in mind that you won't find any mature stories here. That's exclusively in the Jingleclop group.

These are the results that we've recieved so far! There's more and more being posted by the hour. Keep your eyes peeled as our awesome Breezies are hard at work ensuring that everyone gets a gift for the holiday season.

We will update this post as more and more recipients submit their stories and sort out our biggest year yet!

Yeah, that would be kinda useful if you wanna find which fic was for you, if you were participating?

It might be nice to say who they were written *for*?

And uh

Happy Hanukkah for Jews like me

Which is going on right now. Hanukkah, not me. I’m always on.

What's this about our mighty gnome overlord?

What he's saying is that the list above only mentions the title and the author, not who the intended recipient is.

Wow! What an amazing turn out! You are all so awesome! I'm definitely going to make time for this next year!

Wanderer D

5173935 Took some time, but there you go.

It was an attempted joke that fell very flat, and apparently pissed ponies off.

This was a lovely experience and I look forward to doing it again next year.
Cheers, everyone!

Wanderer D

5174082 That's weird. Those are in the code. For some reason they didn't appear.
Edit: Found the error, I had the links but I hadn't included the [ / url] tag.

Oh dear. Someone introduced cell phones to Equestria. Rarity's never going to stop taking selfies. :raritywink:

Happy Jinglemas to all!

merry christmas ,may death ,destruction and financial ruin plague you all :raritystarry::raritystarry::raritystarry::raritystarry::raritystarry:

Merry Christmas!

I like how to description says "Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I do have a couple of favourite songs.
