    The Pillars Shipping Contest

    Source: SkullJooce

    Despite being some of the canonically oldest characters in Friendship Is Magic, there is strangely a lack of stories featuring these characters and romantic endeavors. I believe it’s time to change that! 

    (Me and the gang when we found out there’s barely any shipping material for the Pillars)

    From July 1st to August 1st, I (The Red Parade) will be hosting the Pillars Shipping Contest!

    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

    AppleDash Warm and Fuzzy Feelings Event

    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.

Competition » Cozy Glow Short Story Contest! · 10:24pm July 23rd

Here’s another contest about everyone’s favorite filly.

Unless you like Twist or something.

Greetings! Following the success of the 2020 Cozy Glow Short Story Contest, the Cozy Glow group is happy to announce a new contest for 2021. That so many writers and readers take joy in and adore our precocious Pegasus is not a surprise; rather it’s the lack of canon material released in the interim devoted to this precious, fragile life (given, as we know, such short shrift by the professed “Guardians of Harmony”) that is unexpected.

And so, please join us once again as we address this disturbing gap in the storyline by celebrating the ambition, courage, and charismatic leadership of the best of all possible fillies, Cozy Glow!

Guidelines

All stories must:

-Adhere to the site rules

-Be between 2.5k and 15k words in length and be completed by the deadline.

-Contain Cozy Glow as a central character and be classifiable under one of the prompts.

-Not endorse or feature any specific sexual theme beyond the existing categories and tags on Fimfiction

-Be written in English

-Be written between 20 Jul 2021 12:00 PM EDT and 20 Sep 2021 12:00 PM EDT. No exceptions. Post up to three entries in this folder. Stories may be sequels, but must be able to be read without knowledge of prior works.

-Entrants must be willing to reveal their country of residence (which must have an amazon website) if they win a monetary prize. If a monetary prize is not possible, an alternative prize will be offered.

-“Genre” refers to narrative type of story (e.g. adventure, mystery, etc.); “category” refers to tone (e.g. sad, comedy, dark, etc.).

Otherwise, there are no restrictions on content or maturity level. Stories will be assigned points based on the following:

-Narrative flow and cohesiveness – does it all work together as an organic whole?

-Quality of spelling and grammar – typos and copy/paste errors can ruin the most carefully engineered mood.

-Emotional impact – make the reader feel it.

-Relevance to the MLP universe – is there a connection to the characters, lore, and storyline portrayed in the show?

-Originality – take an old premise and add a new spin, or venture into the unknown.

-Style – speak to the reader in your own unique voice.

-X-factor – how sharp are the teeth?

Prizes

Monetary prize amounts will vary depending on the number of entrants. Winners are guaranteed the following:

1st place: An amazon gift code worth at least $35, posting with link to story on the Cozy Glow group front page, and brief review.

2nd place: an amazon gift code worth at least $25, posting with link to story on the Cozy Glow group front page, and brief review.

3rd place: an amazon gift code worth at least $15, posting with link to story on the Cozy Glow group front page, and brief review.

Runner-up: posting with link to story on the Cozy Glow group front page and brief review.

At 20 entrants, the monetary prizes increase by $15; at 30 entrants, they increase by an additional $15, and so on at each tier of 10 for up to 5 tiers.

-Cozy + Mirror Pool = Maximum Friendship Power.

ahem

-Not endorse or feature any specific sexual theme beyond the existing categories and tags on Fimfiction

I'm not sure what this means exactly. You're not saying porn is off limits but you can't feature a particular fetish? But fetish is a tag. I'm so confused!

Okay, sorry if I go into a little rant here, but why anyone would love Cozy Glow is beyond me.:facehoof: That megalomaniacal psycho should rot in Tartarus, not receive praise. For Faust's sake, she looks like that spoiled rotten, evil Dora Dimple kid from Cat's Don't Dance, with an ego and temper to match. She's a monster, not an innocent child. :ajbemused:

In case that didn't make my decision clear, I'm going to write a story featuring her in the Slice of Life/Sad category. Serve her right,.

Sir, this is a denny’s

Unless you like Twist or something.

Don't forget Apple Bloom and Scootaloo!
It's a three way tie between them and Cozy if I'm honest.

Genre and category specific to original story

-Classic MLP fanfic with Cozy swapped with the main character!

For clarification, is this is a original story written by oneself? Or any fan fiction in general?

-Not endorse or feature any specific sexual theme beyond the existing categories and tags on Fimfiction

So it can endorse rape, but not contain spanking or detailed descriptions of hooves? :rainbowhuh: It doesn't really matter to me as the idea of writing sex!Cozy stories is not something I had considered before reading this, but I feel like your rule might need some clarification for other authors because I have no idea what you're trying to say.

Here’s another contest about everyone’s favorite filly.

Apple Bloom? Scootaloo? Sweetie Belle? Dinky? Diamond Tiara? Silver Spoon? Which one is it this time? Gonna have to be a bit more specific. :scootangel:

5559221
Pretty sure that the existence of the "Fetish" tag makes that no restriction at all if taken literally, but the actual intent is probably along the lines of "don't do that thing someone tried to do back in Pride and Positivity"

5559161
I never liked her either. Her evil smile gives me the creeps. O_O'

Do I have to choose from the prompts, or can I make my own?

5559286
They should probably say what they mean in that case. I'm not sure why they're allowing porn stories about Cozy Glow in the first place, but if they want her to be non-canonically aged up in those stories then that should be in the requirements to avoid confusion.

It's not my problem, fortunately—I just wanted to point out how confusing it is.

5559286
I'm pretty sure the intent is just: "For the love of god, let's have a normal family contest for once." The kind of exasperated dad at Thanksgiving vibe that just saw a nephew attempt to zipline off the roof and end up breaking their leg because the line was made of twine.

5559421
I wasn't talking about foalcon in and of itself, so much as everything else wrong with that situation. In particular, trying to pretend that open sexual themes can coexist with an "E" rating. A one-off throwaway joke is one thing, but they were the entire purpose of the story here.

5559509
5559521
Y'all are totally guessing. If they actually meant "family friendly", they would have said "rated E or T, with no sex or sexual themes". They intentionally used language that appears to have been worded to specifically allow M stories and [Porn] into the competition.

I don't have a clue what they mean by that rule.

5559275
It's obviously :scootangel: but they misspelled her name as Cozy Glow everywhere. Weird.

5559537
As I said, the point isn't so much "don't have an M-story" as "don't have an M-story and then assign it an E rating in the system". Because the latter has happened with an "entry" that was a thinly-veiled excuse for the author to justify killing themselves afterwards.

Yas!! Imma enter!! But I do not have an amazon.in account or anything of that sorts. Just entering for fun!

Hello, and thanks for your interest. I was instructed to include this guideline during last year's contest. For our purposes, let's say it means that if the content of your story can't be classified under one of the existing tags, it's not allowed.

If you're not sure and want to check with me before investing the work, shoot me a PM.

5559161

Can't wait to read your entry!

5559214

By "classic", we mean one of the iconic stories of the fandom.

For example, re-write Cupcakes but with Cozy as one of the main characters instead of Pinkie and RD :pinkiesmile:

5559338

Stories must fall under one of the prompts, but some poetic license is allowed.

5560034
So what's the criteria then? Is it a certain level of upvotes?

5560037

Well, one approach is to go up to Browse and select Top- All Time. The first 10-15 stories are decently representative of the type that's intended here. One can narrow the list by considering that many of the top stories are epic sagas spanning multiple chapters, and thus don't lend themselves to one-shot rewrites.

That being said, don't feel obligated to do an exact rewrite.

Now I interrupt this short story contest to bring you a special message from the Princess of Friendship's voice actress herself!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzqmvInMsVU

X factor- How sharp are the teeth?

I'm sorry, but what does that mean?

5564893

The "X-factor" typically refers to that extra something a story has that makes it affect you. For example, I can't explain to you why Cupcakes was so moving and influential (it wasn't grammatical perfection, plot or structure, to be sure).

Another way to describe X-factor is salience.

i would like to join, except, you guys live in America, or US, and i live in the Philippines, so that means if i win, You can't give me the prize from Your place to my country, so yeah, not participating :(

A story of an aventure of the trio that Cozy Glow makes with Tirek and Chrysalis counts?

5563730 I don't know if this tag exists but here
#stopcozyglowabuse

5563730

I guess this is as close as we'll get to hearing Twilight's candid thoughts regarding Cozy. One can only imagine what Celestia and Luna would say.

Just a few more days, folks! We're only 6 entries away from unlocking the next tier of cash prize amounts.
