AU's Are Gold: An Alternate Universe Fangroup 983 members · 2,528 stories

Haha...chemistry joke

[Welcome, one and all, to a group celebrating the unconventional and uncanon! A group for AU's of all kinds from silly off the wall humor to serious political war fics. Feel free to post any and all Alternate Universe fics here to expand our Fimfiction experience beyond the boundaries of space, time, and most importantly canon


1.The Golden Rule: Treat each other with respect in the comments and in the forums.
2. All stories submitted must twist the FiM universe in some way, shape, or form. It can be as small as changing the gender of one of the main characters (ala The Unexpected Love Life of Dusk Shine) or as big as completely inverting the dynamics of the original series (ala A Glint of Light on Broken Glass). Either way, it needs to somehow twist the original premise of the show.
3. Please leave suggestions/concerns/complaints/hate mail/marriage proposals/death threats in the forum

As this group grows, I hope to incorporate writing contests and other events to keep things interesting!

Some Special Folder Notes

Hall of Fame: The Best of the Best. Nominate a story for this category in the Forum. If 10 other users agree that this story is of the highest quality, it goes up

Fish out of Spacial Water: Where a character from the normal FiM universe finds themselves in a different universe (i.e. On a Cross and Arrow)

Are we allowed to post stories were the difference between the main FIM universe and the alternate FIM universe stems from something in our universe being different? (for example an AU where derpygate never happened)

Hi everyone, just posted a new story here, called Fallen Kingdom Re. Please feel free to check it out and tell me what you all think

Hey, I just posted a revision for one of my old stories and I was wondering if I could get some criticism feedback. It's called Infernus Astartes: Ruinous Son. I'm really curious as to seeing what people think about it.

I just realised that the title of this group is a pun...

Does a story in which fim was created by the force and evolved into what we see in the show as opposed to the force in star wars and then both forces collide be fitting here? Or is in not au enough? Does a figure of power outside both the galaxy and fim shaping them both to enter into its universal dimensional empire, the latter as a protectorate work? Would that change what you define as the original premise? Mostly asking cause I dont know what you define as changing original premise as my story technically does but maybe not what you had in mind for the group so asking before I add.

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.

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:


Quick Question:

Is it okay to put a story in more than one folder so long as it fits those said folders?

Quick question, is there any reason why there isn't a 'Drama' folder for this group?

Nice to meet you all!!! Any ideas for an AU? I was thinking one where the mane 6 are monsters fighting the princesses for freedom.

Has anyone ever done an AU based on the idea of "What if Twilight failed Celestia's test"?

Tut mir leid I accidently put a story in the wrong place how do I remove Order of Eclipse from the dark folder?
please help

This could be the right group for me, sometimes me and my friends have had ideas for character twists, and sometimes I've disagreed with how some plotting in the show goes, and I felt a couples characters deserved more development and involvement with Adventures Twilight and her friends would have.

Seems I am bound to be in here.

If AU is gold, I seems to be as rich as a Bloody Troll.

I guess I am to place a few stories as depository, but how many do I need to leave before you are all happy?

Question: if the main story does not take place IN an alternate universe, but said alternate universe features prominently in the plot, does it get the tag?

hello, nice to meet everypony :twilightsmile:

This group has caught my INTEREST!
