    May 2021 Pairing Contest

    It's May! You know what that means, right?

    Welcome to the May 2021 Pairing Contest!

    The May Pairing Contest? What's that?

    If you've been on fimfiction for more than two days, you've probably noticed that the characters you see used in stories are typically only used with each other (for instance, the mane 6 plus Anon, Vinyl Scratch x Octavia, Derpy Hooves and Dr. Hooves, etc.) The May Pairing Contest is a competition to see who can write the best content by using two characters who we rarely see interact with each other. It's basically a fun way to get your creativity out and discover what would happen if two ponies who never get stories with each other (such as Princess Cadence and Fleur De Lis) just happened to be involved in the same plot!

    So what are the rules?

    A Most Delightful Ponidox

    Contest by: FanOfMostEverything

    Ever since Equestria Girls established that parallel universes are very much a thing in this setting, I’ve loved having different versions of the same person interact. There are only a few hundred stories out of more than a hundred thousand on the site devoted to that. Those are, in the words of Mark Hanna, rookie numbers. Let’s go bump those numbers up.

    The prompt for this one is simple: Two or more distinct instances of the same person have to interact. Whether it’s double Rainbows racing like Superman and the Flash, two Sombras going to war against one another, or just a blessing of Sunsets in the Isekai.

    Word limit: 15,000 or fewer.
    Rating limit: Everyone or Teen

    Hey everyone!

    So it's been a long time since I've had the opportunity to host a contest, but you know what they say: There's no time like the present! That being said, I think it's high time I host another one... and an interesting one at that!

    The Halloween in April Horror Contest

    It’s coming up on April, and the world is a very scary place right now. What better way to distract ourselves than to frighten everyone around us with horror stories?! Fimfiction doesn’t feature as many good, scary horror stories as ‘Slice of Life’ or ‘Comedy,’ and we here at the Barcast think it's time to change all that!

    Announcing: The Halloween in April Horror Contest!

    That’s right, we want YOU to write a genuinely scary horror story or two to help spooky up this difficult time. You can have your story featured prominently by the Barcast, and win fabulous prizes!

    What you’ll be judged on:
    -Is it error-free?

Competition » AppleDash Warm and Fuzzy Feelings Event · 6:59pm Aug 7th, 2020

A lot of us have been stuck inside for the better part of the year, and might need a little bit of a pick-me-up. That's why this event has one, simple mission:

Bring a little warmth and happiness to someone's day!

During the month of August, each person who writes an AppleDash (romance or friendshipping) story full of the warm-and-fuzzies and publishes it to FIMFiction will receive $15! It's that simple! This is not a contest and there’s no judging involved!

Beyond that, there's no prompt, so feel free to write a grand adventure, cute romance, captivating mystery, or whatever else your heart desires!

In a nutshell: someone should be able to read your story and walk away feeling better about their day.

For the full details, discussions, and rules, check out the event announcement on the AppleDash group forums.


  • Each qualifying entry (one per person) will receive $15. There's a hard limit of 100 entries that may qualify for prizes.
  • I (KrazyTheFox) reserve the right to decline to award prizes to insincere entries (trollfics, entries that are not stories, zero-effort entries, etc) if necessary.
  • Stories must be published to FIMFiction and marked "complete" during the month of August.
  • Stories must have a minimum length of 1500 words. There is no word limit.
  • The following tags are forbidden: Dark, Death, Gore, Violence. Mature entries are allowed.
  • Stories may contain sad elements, but the story should end on an uplifting note, keeping with the theme of the event.
  • No humans in Equestria, ponies on Earth, or Anthro. Humanized and EqG are allowed.
  • Romance is not required and other Applejack or Rainbow Dash ships are allowed.

The deadline is 11:59PM at the International Date Line (UTC-12) on August 31st, 2020. (Deadline Countdown)

How to Submit Your Entry and Claim Your Prize:
Add your entry to the group's submissions folder, then message me with a link to your story. From there, I'll work with you to figure out the best way to get your prize to you via PM!

Find the full event details on the AppleDash forums.

What an incredibly generous opportunity! Huge thanks to everyone making this possible.

That kinda brings to mind

Are Rarity/Applejack/Rainbow Dash stories allowed? I have one in the works but it ships all three of them together.

Can one-shot stories count? (Also, no recovery story about Dash getting her wings ripped off, then Applejack helps her recover mentally and physically? That was the story I was going with.)

Since I missed your edit the first time around: If it's heartwarming, that idea would totally count. :)

Damn. I was gonna write a story where Applejack introduces Rainbow Dash to her uncle, Phil Leotardo.

This would be a great excuse for shortskirts to write a new chapter for Appledashery. Except probably not because it's sad as heck.


The thing is, the story will start out extremely dark but then evolve into a warmer story. I would probably have to label it “gore” and “dark” to make it a passable story on Fimfiction. It may not be good for your challenge; but it’ll be the best of both stories. I’ll publish it, send it to you so that you can see what I mean, then you can be the verdict.

Fair enough? :rainbowdetermined2:

Alright! Two comps to compete in!

Far be it from me to discourage people from posting AppleDash to the site. :rainbowlaugh:
As long as you're okay with the fact that it may not qualify, go for it! I'll gladly look it over when you post it to see if it does.

I gotta join this! Appledash is life!

I'll be happy to contribute! This fandom is grossly oversaturated with dark and gore as is. It's nice to see something pleasant promoted for a change.

I might just have to take up that offer. I'm currently torn between two concepts and might just have to write both out of sheer indecision.
