The Accusation Fic Collection 1,049 members · 2,017 stories

This group is made to collect the various fanfics that call out characters for their actions they've done in the episodes. Every episode is included, from the very first episode to the very last. So long as a fanfic calls someone out for what they've done, it's in here. It was originally the ACW Call-Out until it begins to expand into the Accusation Fic Collection it's known today.

For most newcomers, the question comes to their heads of "why make this group?". That is a simple answer: catharsis. There's always an episode someone hates, whether it'd be the infamous Mare-Do-Well or Ponyville Confidential episodes or something that everyone else loves like A Canterlot Wedding. Most of the time, the reason why they are hated is because the episodes in question have their characters be mean spirited in a show that's supposed to be about friendship, love, and tolerance, or act counter to the morals given in the show. Worst of all, these episodes end without those very moments being questioned.

So, in response to these episodes, fanfic writers write up scenarios that happen during these episodes, whether they be after or in the middle of an episode with the sole intention of addressing the problem of the episode in question and ensuring the ponies learn their lesson. This can be done in many ways. The ponies could feel remorse for what they've done, the pony attacked in the episode could lash out, or, hell, some great evil comes up to punish the ponies in some way, shape, or form.

Whatever the reason, its hits a much needed catharsis for those who didn't like a particular episode that the show more often than not skimps out on. And that is the aim for this collection. Catharsis.

So now contributors could ponder "Well what goes here?" Well, any fanfic where a character is called out over stuff they did in the show. However, there are limitations.

For one, they have to be actions that they did in the show/comic. To give you an example, a fanfic where Pinkie Pie is called out over the events of Filli Vanilli would get accepted into this group, but not over the events of, say, Cupcakes. This group is made to focus on what happened in canon (and semi-canon if you count the IDW comics), not fanon.

Another thing, the focus of the fanfic has to be regarding the calling out. To give you an example, Post-Nuptials focuses entirely on ponies feeling guilty over their actions in A Canterlot Wedding. To contrast: Harmony Theory, while it opens up with Luna accusing Celestia of holding back, is not the main focus of the story. The reason for this is because this group's main focus is ponies getting called out.

And one final thing. It doesn't matter if the character being called out is a hero or a villain. Catharsis is made regardless.

The banner comes from a strip of Totally Lashed. In this case, #76.

Is there a blog with Rules of what goes in, and what doesn't. I mean, not this explanation of what group does, but clear rules on what stories to submit. I would like to contribute a single rule to it.

1) If you submit a fanfic to this group - you need to have ponies or other beings question decisions that were made in "canon" of an existing story. You can't just request to enter a crosover, or any random story, that is not a "calling out" of an existing story.

How come they're aren't any accusations of the one where pinkie pie knows?

its so great to be part of this unique community, im honored

Does anyone remember a fic that was on here in which the Mane Six were bickering/feuding among themselves. IIRC, Rainbow Dash was irritated by Twilight's antics in "Lesson Zero" and "It's About Time" and was venting to Bulk Biceps. He spouted his catchphrase a few times before finally calmly telling Dash he disagreed with her. He was also depicted as Scootaloo's cousin here, I think? I know he mentioned them being family members of a sort.

Meanwhile, Spike was annoyed with the people who were fighting with Twilight, and that was when Trixie came back to Ponyville and starched showing off again. He challenged her and did some fancy stunts using his dragon's breath. Trixie tried to do the same thing but caught fire instead.

That's all I really remember. Does any of that ring a bell to anybody else? It seems to have been taken down.
