    Write, you darn stallion, write

    That's addressed to me. I've written a pathetically small amount in two years. It's not that I don't have any interest in doing so any more. I do. I'm just basically incredibly lazy. :rainbowwild:

    Now that Fimfiction has opened up to G5 stories, I would like to see the site go the whole hog and cater for all generations. True, I wouldn't expect a massive number of fics about Posey and Gusty or Melody and Patch or whoever, but why not? Now G5 fics are here, Fimfiction can't continue to pretend that Friendship is Magic or even G4 in general is the defining factor linking all

    Tired but happy

    I was at UK PonyCon over the weekend. A real live MLP convention. And you know what? It was fabulous. (You can read that in a Rarity or Steven Magnet voice if you want!) Quite honestly the happiest weekend I can remember for a very, very long time. So to UKPC falls the honour of being the first in-person con of the G5 era, having previously been the final convention of the

    We could really do with a G5 tag

    Update 29/09: We now have one! Woo-hoo!

Now G5 fics are here, Fimfiction can't continue to pretend that Friendship is Magic or even G4 in general is the defining factor linking all the stories on the site. If someone wants to write a fic about G3 Minty going on adventures in the world of Friendship Gardens (the G2 PC game) then I don't see why that shouldn't be hosted here.

On a related note: even if it doesn't have much of a fanfiction scene, I've always wondered if Them's Fightin' Herds' tag should be standalone. Given its FiM roots, I can't shake the sense that it's at least worth consideration.

Granted, that isn't really all that relevant to the matter of the other MLP generations, but it felt like the best contribution I could make to this conversation. Sorry.

That's an interesting one! I have to confess I didn't think of that at all. I'm really not at all sure.

Don't post

• Stories that are not related to My Little Pony. Your story must be related to the MLP universe at the time of submission, or else it will be rejected.

I mean, it's not like they said which pony universe. :derpytongue2:

We’ve allowed stories about previous gens before, but as you pointed out, there are very few of them.

This site needs more stories about Minty's socks.

Any stories featuring Minty would be awesome!

Ah, I'd misremembered that as specifically mentioning FiM. Whoops!

Interesting, thanks. I think all the old-gen stories I've come across myself have had at least some G4 connection. For example, this one (which I've never read). It's hard to find them, of course, given the lack of a series tag for pre-G4 stuff, but I'm actually glad to know they've been allowed.

Nothing says Christmas, etc etc. Also about the incredibly brutal world of G1, where ponies get the choice of jumping into a lava pit or being thrown in. (Okay, they're rescued. But still.)

Minty does have a character tag! It's on 16 stories, it seems. At least some are about G4 Minty, though.

Brutal or not, the Smooze and sea pony songs are still fucking bops and I will die on the hill of defending them

Heh, you're talking to a guy who did "Call Upon the Sea Ponies" at the UK PonyCon 2018 karaoke. Preaching to the converted here! :scootangel:

I think stories about Them's Fightin' Herds could at least be written as an AU, preferably in a way that won't completely confuse people who know nothing about the game.
