    Welcome to the Contest

    Let's see if we can do it again!

    From the moment you personally read this post, until 2023 Apr 02, the Science Fiction Contest II is officially open for submissions!

    What is Science Fiction?

    Choices: A Species Change Contest [November 2022]

    Greetings, Fimfiction! You can call me Nitro Indigo, and you may recognise me from the roleswap contests I ran in 2020 and 2021. This year, I’ve decided to do something a little different: a species change contest. But first, you might be wondering:

    What is a species change?
    A species change is an alternate universe where characters have been different species for their whole lives (that is, not transformed). They can range from just one character being different, to the entire cast. This also includes ponies being changed to different tribes.

    M/M Shipping Contest II: 2022 Oct 09 - Dec 11

    commissioned from: daOtterGuy

    Guess who's back?

    It's us! About a year ago, we had an site contest for stories about stallions (species-neutral term) kissing other stallions (species-neutral term). And it was a great success! We received so many amazing stories that, winner or not, all contributed to the wonderful experience of reading them.

    So of course we're doing it again this year!

    Ancestral Tribute Contest

    Ancestral Tribute

    As the saying goes, everyone is someone’s child. Unfortunately, sometimes that means the parents don’t get much time in the spotlight. The latest contest from FanOfMostEverything (that’s me!) aims to correct that.

    The prompt is fairly straightforward: Write a story starring one or more parents without their children. Now, this isn’t license to just write Pinkie because Li’l Cheese exists. “Parents” is here defined as those whose primary narrative role in pony canon was raising one or more other characters. (Note that biological parenthood is not required. If you have a Lofty and Holiday idea that missed the deadline for Bicyclette’s contest a few months ago, now’s your second chance for glory. Though the judging will be all the harsher given the longer prep time.)

    3rd Annual Cozy Glow Short Story Contest

    As we all know, no filly was as determined; as steadfast; as laser-focused on achieving her goals as Cozy Glow. Undeterred by Tartarus, brutal physical and magical assaults, avalanches, and universal contempt, she battled on to fall only to the combined might of all of Equestria.

    We can do no better than to emulate her fortitude. Through two years of global pandemic we uplifted her, and in these times of economic uncertainty we will uplift her again. The Cozy Glow group is delighted to present the third annual short story contest!


    All stories must:

    -Adhere to the site rules

    -Be between 2.5k and 15k words in length.

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

    -Be written in English.

    May Pairings Contest 2022!

    Hello everyone!

    May is nearly upon us, and with its return comes a celebrated tradition. That’s right: once again, it is time for May Pairings. 

    What is the May Pairings Contest?

    If you don’t know, the May Pairings contest is all about original, rare, or unique ships that aren’t afraid to explore unique dynamics between characters. This means that stories about Lyra and Bon Bon, Vinyl and Octavia, or Rarity and Twilight wouldn’t qualify. Rather, we want to see stories about Autumn Blaze and Lemon Hearts! Daring Do and Treehugger! Octavia and Applejack! You get the picture.

    Story contest: Who Crossed Over My Little Pony? (1/19/22 -- 4/1/22)

    There's a lot of ways we could describe MLP. A passion. A casual interest. The reason why most of us are here and yes, I said most. But ultimately, it's a cartoon. Animation. Still images which change slightly from frame to frame, creating the illusion of movement. And in that, it's one among many. One more example of an art that's been around for over a century. And some of the writers on this site like to take that cartoon and cross it over with other properties.

    All I'm doing is giving you a direction. If you want to enter this contest, then you'll have an extensive choice of IPs to cross over with. Extensive, and... if you do it right, if you're trying to win -- maybe just a little... looney.

    Crackship Contest: 2022 Jan 06 - Mar 03

    commission from the amazing Shaslan


    Hello friends!

    Have you ever read a fic that romantically paired two characters you couldn't imagine ever interacting, much less dating? And then were blown away by how well the author made it work? Well, that is crackships, baby! And that is what this contest will be about, until 2022 March 03.

    Of course, picking two random characters, declaring that they're in love for no discernible reason, and then calling it a day isn't quite what we are looking for!


    Entries will be considered and rated based on a few metrics, including the creativity of every ship, how the ship itself is handled, and the dynamic and characterization.

Competition » Sunset Shimmer x Sunset Shimmer Contest (October 1, 2021 to October 28, 2021.) · 1:56am Oct 2nd, 2021

We have another contest down the barrel! And it’s some very curious shipping!

(by nendo)

Story Theme

It is about time that Sunset Shimmer gets shipped with the most compelling and complex Equestria Girls villain of all: Sunset Shimmer! That’s right! This is a Sunset Shimmer x Sunset Shimmer Shipping Contest!

What? But How Does That Work?

In so many ways! Just off the top of my head:

  • Sunset’s originally-human counterpart!
  • Sunset’s demon form as a separate character from her, somehow!
  • Time travel!
  • Magic cloning!
  • Alternate timelines!
  • Changelings!

Or think of your own, even better way!

Additional Rules

Stories should be first posted/published between today (October 1st, 2021) and October 28th, 2021. Time zone: United States, Eastern.

Stories are suggested to be less than 5000 words. Stories above 5000 words may be submitted, but judges are allowed to stop reading at 5000 words if it does not catch their interest.

Stories should be E or T rated. SFW only!

We have created a folder in this group for you to put your stories in BEFORE THE DEADLINE.

If this is your first story ever on and you’re having trouble publishing it on this website, please send a link with view password to both Bicyclette and to Reactception. Email us if you have questions about this.

Please include a link to the contest in your story description.

The Prizes

1st Place:

  • The story will be on the page description for two weeks, and the winner will get to choose the next Sunset x EG Villain competition (can’t be the same one). If they want to, they can co-judge for that competition. But if they don’t want to co-judge, they can of course compete again.
  • Bicyclette will give them $40 by Paypal. (Note: This is a one-time donation by Bicyclette, and does not apply to future contests.)

2nd Place:

  • The story will get an honorable mention on the group description.
  • The winner will get a review of one of their stories (their choice) by Reactception.
  • Bicyclette will give them $20 by Paypal. (Note: This is a one-time donation by Bicyclette, and does not apply to future contests.)

3rd Place:

  • The story submitted will be reviewed by Reactception.

Now let’s see how curious your shipping can get!

Well this seems ripe for shenanigans.

Sunset x Sunset is one thing, but if there's any self-ship that needs doing, it's Trixie x Trixie.

That would write itself.

This raises all sorts of mildly uncomfortable questions, especially all of the ideas besides maybe the first one, but the more I think about it the more I think I like it. I look forward to seeing the stories this inspires.

i do look forward to both the shenanigans and the chicanery that i hope arise

it really would! i was sold on Trixie x Trixie ever since reading:

ELove Is for Squares
Trixie's had a bad string of luck with love lately. Starlight hopes this means she'll finally get a chance to be with her. She's wrong. So, so wrong. Because the one Trixie becomes enamored with? It's herself.
Dewdrops on the Grass · 6.2k words  ·  54  4 · 987 views

and if this were a Trixie x Equestria Villain Shipping Contest i definitely would have gone for that

oh yes, though wacky comedy is definitely one way to take this premise, i do hope to get some serious works that tackle uncomfortable themes like continuity of identity, the boundaries of the self, and the gulf of the incommunicable that even exists between lifelong romantic partners

Roses are red
We're all kinds of sick
Stayed for the contest
But came for the pic

If at least 80% of entries don't have pun titles, I will be displeased.

Posh #7 · Oct 2nd, 2021 · · 2 ·

I’m a little confused by the current rules for the site advertising writing competitions. When the coterie of non-heterosexuals who hosted the SunFlower contest (with whom I am affiliated) ran theirs/ours, we were told that, as first-time contest hosts, we weren’t eligible for a site endorsement. These last few months, though, a lot of contests have been advertised that, following that same logic, shouldn’t have been eligible for this kind of advertising.

Does a person just... need to ask for a site post to get their contest advertised now?

Also, haven’t these sorts of posts always been WandererD’s department?

5000 words or less? That has to be the shortest I've ever seen for a contest.

Short stories then it is!

if you read between the lines it's more ">5kw is okay if it's good"
oh i hope ppl come up with good titles

why... just why.

Story idea: "This ship writes herself"
Sunset writes fanfiction about an idealized version of herself who doesn't screw up and put her friends and her town in danger every other week. Then that fictional Sunset comes to life (because "magic lmao idk", to use professional jargon) and it turns out that even an idealized fictional version of her can't escape the crippling self-doubt of her tragic backstory and thinks that the real Sunset is the better version of them who has all her shit together. So now the two of them help each other accept their flaws and recognize their strengths. Which is not exclusively but primarily code for having a narcissistic streak and being darn good-looking.

(Probably not gonna actually write that one so if anyone else thinks they can do it justice knock yourself out)

Each contest that has gotten a site post has had judges that have had previous experience hosting a successful contest. I can pull up referrals, if you’d like.

And any moderator can post a contest site post, as evidenced by previous postings.

I just happen to be the moderator that people are asking about site posts.

Excuse you, but if we're going to bring in that tag, at least call it Suncest. This is Basic Punning 101, if you haven't finished that class yet please review the course material before you write (happy) pony romance.

The Suncest ship is between Sunburst and Stellar Flare.
Even a cursory search on Derpibooru could tell you that.
Careful shipping, fren.

I don't make the rules.

For some reason I thought you would do your own contest...

I saw a contest with a 4000 character limit. It was... something

Oooh, a story for Bacon month!? I can do this.

This sounds better as friendshipping.

Because if I had a ponyself that somehow came to Earth...

My first thought wouldn't be self-ship, my first thought would be How did you get here and how can I visit?!

The whole basic premise of the idea was that the second Sunset is a fictional character written as a self-insert of the pony Sunset. It's even in the title. How did you miss that?

There's a lot of possible pitfalls to the romance in any story in this contest but the second Sunset from my story being too distracted by questions about the person who is the template of her own being and the source of her entire knowledge is probably the least likely one.

5590469 My understanding was that advertising was contingent on the contest’s host having prior experience running contests, and proof of payouts to contest winners, rather than the contest just having a judge on hand with prior contest experience.

Am I mistaken, or has there been a change to the rules?

That Twilight gif is probably the best reaction gif I've ever seen.

Sunset Shimmer x Sunset Shimmer is Summer. And (for those of us in the northern hemisphere) we're heading into fall. Just thought I'd point that out.

I'm okay with this contest. It's honestly the most interesting thing for Sunset. I'm probably not gonna write anything for it, but I'd love to read the stories.

And I just had an idea.

Guess Sunset is getting set more time

Just to be clear, this is a romance contest, correct?

Because I'm having a bit of a time wrapping my head around such a situation in which someone would go: "Hey, I'm you. You wanna date?"

I hate that I like this concept so much

Good ol' Selfcest huh?
This shall be some fun Double Sunset shenanigans

I think there one or two. None really long for sunset×sunset. Cadence×sunset has 2 or so as well. But at least one Is epic length. Twin twilight tales. Great story.

Majin Syeekoh

You can ask for a site post if at least one of the judges on hand has prior contest experience, yes.

I wonder if the Angelic Daydream Shimmer can get involved.

I wrote a story for your contest. How do I put it in your folder? My story is called "Help from a Daydream".

Here comes the sun doo doo doo dooo imaflaminghomosexual

Sun of a bitch

I don't think I will be doing the competition, but i like the picture :twilightsmile:

Love the pic of Sunset.

this is precisely the reaction i wanted with the concept, so thank you for telling me!
friendshipping is allowed by precedent, so no, not exclusively, though it is encouraged
i somehow forgot to reply to this but i absolutely adore this concept and i really hope somebody does write it!

I can't believe I missed the SunsetxSunset shipping contest smh

Sad you missed out but you should still check out are group we host lots of competitions

Nice picture.
