Hi everypony!
I think I need to say this right away... :twilightblush:

I'm an artist, and sometimes I like to write stories for a change of routine.
Not being my strong, I'm really willing to give a try.
I'm currently working on my second fic, constantly writing new chapters, and updating It.

So... can I post my story here? All the comments would be welcome to help me improve in story telling, writing, and other factors.

Thank you, kindly.:heart:

First I would like to say I am posting this, only because a few suggested to me that I do so. So, I am.

Introductions.

What can I say, I am one of many that joined this site to read stories about ponies.
Well, I could have done that without joining. I mostly joined to post comments to others on stories they made that I liked, and give my general opinions of said stories. During my time here, I did a lot of that.
In time, like others, I came up with some of my own ideas for a few stories. To say the least, they have not been well taken.
Not that I have had any expectations on how my stories would be perceived by the masses, the overall lack of comments I did not expect. Even by those that did not like my stories.
I could say within a twisted way of thinking, that my stories have proven to make the readers of my stories speechless, as being an achievement of sorts. Though this doesn't help with the knowing by me as to why so many do not like or those very few who did like it what I created.
For any who ask, yes, I did like my own stories, in that they are some of the type of stories I like to read.
I think that will do it for Introductions. I don’t wish to get more carried away with it then I already did. :derpytongue2:

About the stories if any are interested.

The first was created over a discussion I had with another author. It had to do with the lack of details as to how a pony got the name that they did. It is of course a bit of an oddity that the name of many ponies fit who they turn out to be so well. Question being, how and why. So, my story Baby Naming was made as an idea on how one might have gotten their name.
To date, it has 153 views, 5 likes and 11 dislikes. And two helpful comments by another on some spelling issues I fixed. Some comments was by one who liked the story. All of that was a while ago. That story is mostly dead now.

Onto my other two.

These two are part of a trilogy I have been working on. First thing to know about them is that they are both a sad fic with some gore. There were many facets behind the creating of them both. I think I will start with the first. A Kezzerdrix in Equestria. Can’t say what was the first thing that was an inspiration to me in making this story. Be it the Kezzerdrix killer rabbit from the card game Magic The Gathering, or the development of a few OC’s I was thinking of making.

The story plays out as a simple day in the park with some ponies at play. One get’s separated while off looking for an errant ball that got away from her. A little exploration ensues till she finds herself in the the presents of one not so friendly large rabbit. Something she or any within Equestria has never seen before. This is a spoiler. It does not go well for her. Hence, the sad, dark, and gore tags.

The story has an alternate ending. A possible source for why some did not like the story.
If it was do to the reader not liking the gore in it, well one should not read stories marked gore, if they have a problem with that.

To date, it has only 45 views, 6 likes and 39 dislikes, and a lack of helpful comments. Some of the few where simply stating that the story was confusing, and bad. Another was a question of, “What is Kezzerdrix?” Even if the Kezzerdrix did not come from any given source, the story dose described it as one mean, and bad tempered big bunny. Looking like a twisted nightmarish hair.
I also think some forget, Google is your friend. Aside from that, the ponies don’t know what it is so it was supposed to be a bit of a mystery as to what it is in the first place.
I do have a link to a video showing just what a Kezzerdrix is. Yes, it was shown once in a commercial on TV. So, I did not just pull this rabbit out of a hat, it has an origin of sorts.

Commercial link:

The alternate ending was important to the story. One, it helps tell a little of what one of my OC’s can do, and it is a catalyst to the beginning of the next story. Return of the Kezzerdrix.

Onto the next and last one.

Return of the Kezzerdrix.
This is a long one, but I will try to keep it short. It was created for me to have a chance to expand some on my OC’s. Again, it is a sad, dark, and gory story. So it should be of no surprise that some ponies get hurt or even dies in it, and in a horrible fashion. Would not have been much of a horror without such moments. It also has some parts where many are having to not only deal with some unknown threat killing ponies, but having to deal with their sense of loss.

The story also takes from parts of the show directly. Some readers like this, some don’t.
Overall the story is mostly a sad fic, and some odd comedy in it, that I happen to like. This sort of makes it pay homage to a lot of the “B” horror movies out there. Slither, Nightmare on Elm Street, Feast, just to name a few. The story is a horror, though many parts of it is less serious than the previous one. Another possible reason some did not like this story. I would not know.

To date, it has only 49 views, 2 likes and 17 dislikes, and a lack of helpful comments as well.
Again, Some of the few where simply stating that the story was confusing, and bad. Another was another question of, “What is Kezzerdrix?” This one may not have looked at the story before this one, or they not have asked that.

I post this not in asking for good reviews or anything like that. As it stands by those that have looked at my stories is, they are not well liked and are bad stories. I am really only interested to know why they are seen as so bad. Mostly my last one. I put a lot of work into that one. I am also currently creating the third story to this trilogy. It will have in it the explanation as to why that Kezzerdrix was in Equestria in the first place, and what next is to follow. Bigger plans I have for this last story. Though I have little to no interest in posting it when it is done. If an interest in it dose one day grow, I might be tempted to share what I created. Though for the moment there is little interest in it by others.

Again, I am just curious as to why my story bombed so badly. None is saying. One did post many comments that I did delete. But those comments where an attack on me personally, and had nothing to do with my story. He even told me he did not read it. That it would just be a piece of shit not worth reading. Oh, well.

For those that do have an interest in any of these stories and do wish to give me comments, even if they are unfavorable to the story. I would appreciate some insight as to what is wrong with them. I will also look over and give my comments to some stories for those that do comment, and wish to have a few comments on their stories as well. It is why I joined this site. To read some stories, and comment on them.

For those that got this far-
Thank you for your time. :twilightsmile:

Here's the first chapter of my fanfic
The Secret of Harmony

Would greatly appreciate it if I could get some more people to look at it and tell me their thoughts.

Hi all
Let me cut to the chase.
Rough Landing

Critiques and stuff please :twilightsheepish:

Thanks!

Welp, just added The Jewel Robbery At the Grand Griffon Gala

It's a mystery short story based on an Agatha Christie story. Part of hopefully a series of such fics. Needs a bit of love.

I've added my fic Silver Spirit, Ghost of Equestria to the crossover folder. It is a story with the Crusaders, in which Sweetie Belle becomes a spirit after yet another one of their crazy schemes to gain their Cutie Marks.

Crossover with Danny Phantom. Side story to Guilt of a Phantom.

I've just put For an Angel to Pass into the Sad Folder. It doesn't get much attention, even compared to some of my other stories, I suspect in part because a lot of people dislike anything about Angel unless he ends up getting torn apart by Timberwolves. :P

But those who have read it have really liked it (comments include "New respect for Angel") and someone (not me!) added it to the "Buried Treasure" group. I'm pleased with its +14/-0 thumbscore and it's only about 1,600 words, so you won't have to make a big commitment to read it. Not that I'm desperate or anything... :rainbowlaugh:

I just added Turning Back the Winter to the Adventure folder. It tells the true story of Celestia's rise to power, not that sanitized propaganda in The Book of the Two Sisters. It is 16-1 and I feel it is my best story so far, so I would appreciate it if I could get some views and some comments. Let me know what you like, what you don't like, if I should be tagging it differently, etc. And please, enjoy the read. Thank you!

Hi there I just added Life After Life. I'm not real savvy on navigating this site (or computer savvy at all) so I don't know if I have to many favs or not. If you feel the need to kick it it's fine, I just wanted to add it because I have next to no time these days to update, so it has kinda fallen into the abyss haha. Thanks.

I just posted a story to this group that could use a little more love. It's called Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree, and is about Applejack's relationship with Apple Bloom as well as her past. I hope that some of you will give it a read as I feel it deserves more attention. If you like Applejack, you owe it to yourself to check this out!

Just wanted to post a story that a friend is writing that's really awesome :D
https://www.fimfiction.net/story/169447/go-fast-go-far-live-large-vulnerable
It's great :D you should go read it, have some laughs :rainbowlaugh: it has dashie :rainbowkiss: dashie is loving the fact that this fic has dashie in it :rainbowkiss:

My story has been up for a month and hasn't gotten many views. It is a great piece that has just been Rage Reviewed with only a 10% rage level. He even liked and favorite it! So why don't you guys show it a little love? You can find it here!
Thanks!

Hey hey all! Greetings from all the darkest corners of the web. As an amateur writer that lacks a proper fan following, I'm here to shamelessly plug my story. (Of course.) :pinkiehappy: Presenting: An Equestrian Freedom.

It's dark. It's gritty. It's been several months in the making. Here's a brief rundown: When the king of a faraway nation invades Equestria, Twilight must find out who to trust and rethink everything she knows about freedom.

Check it out under the Dark section if you're a sucker for an emotionally charged story packed to the brim with plot twists and secrets. (Honestly, I think it's good. I mean, it didn't even rake in 100 views... Help a guy out?)

Regards! -FullMetalFurbee-

:twilightsheepish: I'm an ass. I didn't read the rules and I posted my story on here, but i checked back and took it off. My bad.

Hello folks and world, and in that order. Or ordure, in which case you should watch where you're standing.

In any case, valise, wallet and saddle-bag, allow me to introduce Shetlander to you, a magnificent NaNoWriMo 2012 failure. There's probably two or three chapters still to write, but the auto-haters got there first. Shetland ponies, bagpipes, Lovecolt references, and more world-building than you really wanted.

Newbie here. Uhh..i got a couple short stories that need a little love.

http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Mister+McMuffin

All five of his are cute, but the one that really needs a sequel and more loving is second chances.

Anyways, peace ya'll.

Mr Merritt and hos OC Peppermill needs more love

Equus Mortis could use more love, so I put it and "A merciful way" in the dark section. I also put "What my dark half is telling me" in the sad section.
It's good to be in another group.
