Is this group limited to MLP OCs?

Hey everyone, I just joined this group today and wanted to say hi.
I'm gonna admit that I'm pretty new to this Group thing and wanted to know what sort of happens around here. I also wanted to offer a heads up about a recent story I posted here called Shadows Over Equestria And I wanted to get your feedback on if this is the right place to post or not. If not, please let me know and let me know which group might be a good fit for it. I'd very much appreciate it.

I deleted them because I got dislikes for no reason. I suspected a lot of users didn’t even read my stories at all.

where's ur story. Link?

Hello everyone! I just joined your group and thought it would be polite to say hi. I hope you are having a wonderful day full of inspiration. :pinkiehappy: Could some of you perhaps help me with a question? See, I used to be a bit of a loner when it comes to writing and only recently decided to find out what the groups on FIMFiction have to offer. So… what usually happens in a group like this? I understand you can add stories to folders that correspond with the kind of story you have made. Can I do that right now or must I ask for permission? Should I announce my stories as well? Do you have any tips and tricks on how to make the most out of this group? I hope you can help me out. Thanks in advance! :twilightsmile:

Lots of love, :heart:

I just made some changes to my story Blazin Lights (Episode 1) The Origin . I hope you all like my story. There are so many things going on in my story.

Hey, folks! I go by TallFry, but I'm considering just using my OC's name instead at some point. I've technically only got one story, but it's a long one that isn't gonna be done anytime soon. But, rather than just have one big never-ending story, I'm doing it in a context of "seasons" like the show does! It centers around the pegasus in my profile pic, and it does feature myriad other OC's when appropriate, but it mostly uses the show's cast, in how this character basically influences their lives, and how they influence his in turn. Needless to say, I'm gonna be posting it all here. I hope you enjoy it! :twilightsheepish:

Uhm... hey, I’m a new member...

Hello everypony! My name is Scarlet Thorn and I'm writing a story that centers around mostly OCs and cannon background ponies. Nopony is willing to give my story a chance unfortunately!

If you could read, and maybe like, or at least drop a comment on "Tales from the Equestrian Others-the Fallen Angel of Ponyville" it would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there:pinkiehappy:! I'm a new fimiction member that just joined a month ago and I'm currently writing an MLP story with an OC of my own!:scootangel:

I'm writing a story. Hello.

Glad to be here ^^.
I hope you check out my story.

Here's a quick summary.

It's about a grumpy and socially awkward Earth Pony OC that joins the mane six on their adventures. It's basically a rewrite of Friendship is Magic with one OC added to the bunch.
There are more OC's added as the story progresses and a bunch of custom chapters that serve to "extend" the story of Friendship is Magic.
I would love if you check it out and let me know what you think about it ^^.
My Little Pony - The Legend of Friendship

Flight tells the story of the pegasus rebellion against an oppressive batpony regime that taught them they couldn't fly. It's an allegory with many sub-surface themes, like true empathy and how to combat depression. I hope you enjoy reading it! :pinkiehappy:

I have a story involving about 99% OCs, but it's not 'Human', it's Anthro (They have hands, but they have hooves instead of feet, just to clarify.) Would this count for the Human folder?

A troll has been going around submitting a story to a mass number of folders and groups. After 3 hours of combing I found the story in 3 Folders in this group
The story - The Ravaging of Rainbow - is a trollfic and contains no OC's
it is in
Adventure
Clopfics
and Comedy

Well, I am glad you liked my advice. And that is all I was trying to give, some advice. I didn't want you to give up on the story you wished to write. :twilightsmile:

I did understand that Sean can't use magic, that is why I suggested the idea that Sean might become very powerful in the story by an external magic device like the alicorn necklace, or some tech like the iron man suit.

Remember this, even if Sean can't use his unicorn magic, all the ponies have some inner magic they use all the time. Even the earth ponies. Else Tirek would not have been able to get any magic out of the earth ponies.

The pegisi magic is obvious. One: they fly fast with tiny wings for their size. Look to Bulk Muscle, best example of that. Two: They can sleep on clouds. Magic must be involved in that. Three: They can make other thing sit on clouds as well. Though for some reason, they can't get an earth pony or unicorn to stand on one.

They can make a road stay, a road any pony can stand on, just not other ponies. I chock it up to that it is the inner magic of the other ponies that interfere with a pegisi being able to help them stand on a cloud like they can with other things.

As for earth pony magic, both Zecora and Pinkie has both shown some level of being able to use magic. Though on the show it is stated Zecora is not a pony, she is a zebra. Twilight said this specifically on the show.

One other hint of earth pony magic is the cutie marks. all the ponies have them, even the earth ponies. And it seems to be on them by magic. With out their magic, they lose it.

Another universal magic shared by all, is how each can pick up and move things. Many grab with their mouth but some grab with their hooves and they have no fingers to do this with. Some even grab and hold with their main and tail at times. Much of this I would say is done by magic. A universal magic shared by all of them.

I do fully understand though what you are saying about Sean, he can't use his unicorn magic at all. This does not mean he couldn't use any other types of magic, mostly the universal magic all of them share, or else he likely would not be able to have a cutie mark, or able to pick things up without using his mouth alone. That is why I stated that he could get powerful in other ways, even if not with unicorn magic.

I remember Zecora say to Twilight, "That will be the day when a pony can lick me in magic." Suggesting that she is very powerful, even though she is no unicorn, or alicorn.

Okay, Aside from the magic side of things, I find it good that you have Sean have his flaws, and is hardly perfect. Makes for great character development.

So, Sean is a little unsavory, in that he can be unusually cruel. I think many people are cruel. In their own ways, even if they don't see it, or conveniently not wish to see it. Like to make a verb jab at someone, while not caring how it might effect that person. Oh' but these people do think of themselves as nice, all while ignoring the bad things they do by thinking it as OK, and letting themselves off the hook with such thinking.

I have told others just how well people hide themselves from the thought of their own inner evil they may have.

Point in concept: You would think of something as being evil for going around and eating children for pleasure. Something like a demon or other monster would do. Now think of the average person who eats veal. Now ask yourself, what is the difference? And who is the evil ones now? :pinkiecrazy:

So, you say Sean, for the most part is the product of the cruelty of others. This is not uncommon. I have used some of this in my own stories, but to various degrees. None of them are entirely like Sean though. But I feel most everyone is tempered by their interactions with others, or even the lack of it. Even being by one's self will shape a person, to a degree.

I used this lack of interaction, by one, in the story I am about to put out today. the effect of this will only be shown in the last chapter though. Chapter eight. It is a story on Fluttershy and how she grew up, but it is also much more than that.

In light of all that, I think you have an interesting character there. :twilightsmile:

406694 Thank you very much for replying to me and I absolutely understand everything that you have told me

Now for saying that people might think of Sean as an overpowered character while he may be very skilled in physical hoof to hoof or weapons combat, Remember that Sean is absolutely useless with magic like he actually has no magic in him at all for a unicorn and he relies on his intelligence and skill if he is ever in trouble or to complete in tasks. again his inability to cast magic makes him of course completely useless with it and i know i havent added this information before, one of his flaws is he is actually a very socially awkward and sometimes idiotic pony. He has the intelligence and the skill but he tries to solve the problem in his own way but it almost never works and it causes an even bigger problem for everypony and can make some pretty bad decisions whenever he is under pressure which even might possibly lead to the death of a pony, he tries to keep himself calm at all times through meditation and other relaxing activities in order to not be under pressure. Now for the socially awkward flaw i will give you a little backstory to this.
When he was a child Sean was constantly bullied by everypony because of his inability to cast magic and it has broken him because of that whenever nopony bullies about his inability they would bully on him for being... well just weird, Sean has done a lot of weird and disgusting stuff in the past such as saying the wrong inappropriate stuff, touching another pony in wrong ways, harming animals and bugs in twisted ways and many more. I wouldnt go into anymore detail just yet until i start writing this story when i have the time :derpytongue2:.
If you are also talking about COMBAT flaws. Well, i have told you about that he just full on cant use magic and he also relies too much on his gadgets and weapons. BUT i will add more flaws about him later on in the story or even in the first chapter describing or showing his flaws Combat and character wise. And i am sure that at least some viewers will like the characterization of him or just well simply liking the character :twilightsheepish:

Now for the story. Ok now i knew that somepony (which turns out to be you) would talk and share their thoughts about it and try to give me a few warnings and advice when typing such a story.
Now i shouldnt give too much detail on the story but the Mane six and Sean are trying to find ways in order to stop her from coming, and they also plan for her arrival in equestria and find out how to defeat her IF she would ever arrive anyways. There is some adventuring in this story where the six have to find ways to stop the goddesses tracks and not let her out of tartarus, where they would have to many ancient locations, hideouts of the cult, maybe try to make allies to help with this and sometimes they would also have to try to find SOME of the thousands of ponies who are part of the Goddesses cult. If you really wanna know the name of the goddess it is Cegolas. I have no idea where i got that name from :P
And for the guardians well actually for quite some time it would actually remain a mystery for them if they would ever find one and THAT is all i have to say about the story and everything else for right now. As it is still a bit too early to tell you a lot of the information right now :twilightsheepish:

But i must say that your advice and your warnings do help me and i have to thank you for that as it actually really helped me and think more of how i should approach the story as it goes on so thank you very much again! :twilightsmile:

I am sorry if this reply doesnt really satisfy you at all i do get out of hand sometimes XD But again you really helped me and i will make sure i remember what you just said and think more about how i will approach the story so thank you!

Oh yeah the name well it does sound long does it? :derpyderp1: and i think i should probably simplify it maybe yeah.

OH yes and your story i have been reading the first book of the kezzerdrix only the first chapter though for now. It is a bit entertaining and kinda dark i gotta say :)

This seems a little complicated just for being able to post stories with an OC in it. :pinkiecrazy:
That is depending on what might actually be holding back such a right. :derpyderp2:
It all seems rather silly to me. :derpytongue2:
