All right, guys! That's a wrap! We got your stories, and we're revving the engines to start on the judging! Bear in mind that the judging's gonna be a pretty long and involved process (with a fairly large team to coordinate), so it might take a while to get all the results in, but we'll get on it with all due haste and diligence. In the mean time, you should go check out the stories from all the other entrants! We got something like ninety stories in here, and a lot of them look pretty darn interesting!

Also, bear in mind that this is just the complete list of all entries we've received. A few entries listed here might be disqualified from the contest proper if they didn't follow the rules (i.e. blatant contradiction of the prompt, ignoring the wordcount min/max, etc.), which we'll sift out once the judging starts. So if you're confused as to why a given entry is listed here, that's probably why.

Anywho, happy trails, guys. Good job. Now take a break--you've earned it.

Wowzers! That's a LOT of entries!

Looks like I got some reading to do!


Everyone is a winner for finishing a story to a deadline. I think this contest is not so easy to even enter.

That awkward moment when you notice and join the forum dedicated to the contest the day after the deadline passes. :facehoof:

I'd appreciate it if folks read "The Mailmare" on fimfiction (here) rather than on the Google doc page linked to above.

Any idea how many of them are straight-up retakes on the original idea, and how many are parodies, crackfics, or comedies?


Well, I've read Plural Possessive, and I know for certain that it's more a parody than a retake. Doesn't make it any less of a decent story, however. I enjoyed it immensely. My own story, as well as I know it, wouldn't really even be considered any of the three. More of an elaboration or a continuation from a completely different perspective than a retake.

I haven't really been able to get much farther, though. I'll be jumping between them as the days pass.

So far I haven't actually encountered any direct remakes, though that is probably because I'm avoiding the ones which SOUND like they're direct remakes. I've also read more than the ones I listed in my post, but I haven't added them yet because I haven't put up the reviews yet.

I've read a couple, gonna be a tough competition.

I've read all the cupcakes ones and it's not a bad batch. A few unique one's, very few full out gore fests, quite a lot of 'it was all a misunderstanding' ones.

All in all, these are the ones I would recommend:

All. Seriously, each one is only a few k's, so why not read them all? If you're squeamish to gore, just pay attention and skim those bits until the speaking starts once more.

Ruin Value is actually publicly submitted now (rather than just viewable via the link); it can be found here. Dunno who is in charge of adding stuff to the group folders.

Also, added a couple more stories to my list above. More reviews will be posted later this evening.

Your entry got in a bit late.
Lucky. :raritywink:

It wasn't late. It was up on Saturday night and publicly accessible in the link in the OP (I submitted the entry like 9 minutes before the deadline).

It just wasn't publicly posted on FIMFiction until today. There's a few other entries which I believe are in the same boat. Bad Horse's story on the site is fully posted in the link, but I don't think the last chapter or two is up yet on FIMFiction. I think Doseux's story is also still private.

Updated my review list; the currently-unlinked story reviews will be up tomorrow.

Think you'll review them all?
or at least mine?

At the risk of copying Titanium Dragon, here are my reviews so far (links to the review post):


Save the Records


Call the Stars Home.
Rainbow Dash the Spartan.


I'm Just Me.
Nightmare Knicks.

Hey, I think it is great to see other people doing reviews of the stories and talking about them. Speaking of which...

I've got more reviews up, and read a few more stories which will have their reviews go up tomorrow.

Also, going to have to check out Save the Records now.

I've mostly been reading ones by folks I know or ones which were recommended to me by folks, and my latest round of them (RIN #15, which is going to be posted tomorrow) didn't really encourage me to keep going through them. I'll definitely read yours if it wins a prize or gets recced to me by someone, though.

Reviewed four more of the stories today, as noted in the post above:

Do you plan to check out any more after this next batch, or will that be all?

The four I have left are on this list, barring someone telling me that one of them is not worth reading (or their writer not wanting me to read it). I don't like reading stories that I, well, don't like.

There is, however, a fully written set of reviews, but all of the stories I reviewed in that set are already listed above.

My story made the list! :yay: I was worried for a bit there that I'd missed the deadline, but I had trouble finding this forum. Good luck everybody! This was really fun. :pinkiehappy: Now to go read my fellow writers' entrees!
