    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.

    Jinglemas 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!

    "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 royalcanterlotlibrary.net 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!

Bless this crazy, brilliant, disgusting, beautiful, insane, charming fandom. Happy New Years!

We did it! Yay! Happy new year fellow crazy pones!:pinkiehappy:

I like the TM you put at the end if your name on the list! And yeah, Yoshikage Kira did a great job with my story. So cute! This was a success! So many people participated this year; I'm gonna read a big amount of them next year! Thanks, Shakespearicles!

Happy New Year!

Pen Stroke wrote The Twin Suns Winter Uncertainty for Shakespearicles, perhaps his best work yet!

Lol, that's certainly an opinion :rainbowlaugh:

Was so glad to contribute so much this year and I look forward to next year even more! Happy New Year!

Last year I was kicking myself for not taking part, and now I've taken part it was worth it! Happy new year everyone!

Breezie-ing was fun this year! Was thrilled to take part again! :yay:

Level Dasher wrote The Pink Side of the Mind for Reactception, and wins best cover art!

:rainbowderp: Do I get something for that? :trollestia:

Happy New Year! :twilightsmile:

Happy new year and merry jinglemas

Spent enough horse words elsewhere on the details of the contest and my writing in it. So for here, I’ll just say it was a joy to write for this again, and to read so many great entries (with many more to read!)

Happy new year, everypony! :raritystarry:

This year’s Jinglemas was so wonderful that I created a bookshelf full of my favorite holiday stories. Perhaps I’ll participate in my first Jinglemas next year. Who knows?


Shakespearicles™ wrote Hearth's Warming Presents for Atom Smash, (and looked damn fine doing it!)

Virtue is its own reward.

I am so proud of pulling through and doing this despite my fears and sudden lack of motivation! Hope to participate again!

Was a lot of fun to participate in. Glad that I could contribute. Happy New Year! :twilightsmile:

I should really have participated. Stupid me lol.

Really wish I could have written a story...
Man did I fuck up..

ROBCakeran53 wrote My Little Luna Bad Moon on the Rise for PeerImagination


Me too^^ It was either make a hastily written story or take my time and make it the best i can at the end but miss the due date.
