Hello, and welcome to Anti-Depression Ponies! :pinkiehappy:


The world is full of sadness and despair, each and every soul a story of their own of how society and reality left them to the dust, forgotten. FIMfiction is no exception, and is in fact filled with many individuals who loathe their very being and past. Everyday, many readers and authors are left with a void in their hearts, longing for someone to be with them, to understand them, to carry them through their tear-filled road of life.

This group is dedicated to all those suffering from life's hardships and just don't know what to look forward to in life anymore. :applecry: With that in mind, the purpose of this group is to put a smile back on your face (And we'll make sure of it)! :twilightsmile:

What you can do to help yourself!

If life hasn't been fair to you recently, or perhaps even all your life, share! Share with us your woes, your sorrows, let the tears flow, there's nothing wrong with that. Each and everyone of us will be there to make you feel better. Tell us your story, tell us of the very first moment you broke out a smile, tell us of your happiest memory, tell us what makes you you

Watch as group members crowd around you, sharing their own stories and words of encouragement. Watch as the innovative occasionally drop off a heart-warming picture or a spirit-lifting video. Watch as your tears dry-up into a pool of happyness within you. :scootangel:

But remember, this group is only a collection of stepping stones there to help you cross your turbulent river. Only you yourself have the power to cross it. But we're always there to pick you back up should you fall into despair again. :pinkiesad2:

What you can do to help others!

Anyone and everyone from all corners of the internet may join, whether they're feeling depressed or not. If you yourself have had similar experiences to your new but broken friends, feel free to lend a helping hand. Lend words of encouragement, share with them your failures and your will to rise from the ashes. Inspire them, help them, hold them like one of your own. Be the one to place the stepping stones of the past, as we all hold hands and progress further on into the future. We're all in this together. :twilightsmile:

Stories to Read

The stories set here in our folders are chosen to hopefully bring a smile to your face. Whether they be long journeys of self-discovery, a lesson from home to last a lifetime, or even just some fillies being silly, you can look here for stories that will fill you with purpose and energy to strive for a better future.


This is a lenient group, so there won't be that many. But basically:
1. Don't be intentionally rude or insulting.
2. Don't spam the forums with unrelated threads.
3. Don't make threads proclaiming suicide.
4. Don't negatively reference specific users within the site when creating a [help] or [vent] thread.

If you're doing something wrong, an admin will tell you to stop. So don't feel pressured by things like insta-bans and what not. More info about our banning system can be found here. :twilightsmile:

If at any point you feel dissatisfied with the group, you are welcome to leave a comment in our suggestion thread too! :pinkiehappy:

I have had a crush on Vinyl Scratch ever since I was 13 - 14 years old. I am 20. I am male. My girlfriend broke up with me to be with a girl who had surgery to have a penis. Vinyl x Octavia offends me deeply. This is a picture that upset me right now and it makes me want to kill myself or punch someone something. It offends me. I love Vinyl Scratch. Leave her alone! Please!

I left the Discord server.

Well I finally made a FIMFiction account and joined this group at the suggestion of a friend because I have had more issues than normal recently.

Its funny, I probably would've joined this years ago if I had known that this or something like this existed as I have been struggling with depression for a long time and the whole reason I started watching MLP FiM was because it was so happy and innocent and it makes me feel a little better.

The past couple of years have been hard, and the last 6 months especially so...I've gone through so many changes and struggles. I really don't know how I've made it this far to be honest although I do know I couldn't have made it without the support of the friends I've made in this fandom.

I really do struggle with stuff a lot of times though, and I think that it would be good for me to join here and maybe get some support when I need it, and help offer some positivity and encouragement to anyone when I can as well.

Also I apologize if it is hard to read my posts...I have tend to jarble up my sentences sometimes and leave out important words or add extra ones without noticing it even after reading over it.

I just joined stuck in some stuff I hope this site help :pinkiesad2:.

Hi Pones!
I don't know why I left FIMfiction, but I'm back. I hope to find some new friends and be as helpful as I can! :pinkiehappy:

'Anti Depression is founded by Smiles'. I think I get it now, how clever.


How do you add stories?

As the founder of Coping with Disabilities Through Pony, I wish I had found this group sooner.

Since 2013, my team and I have worked very hard to help people to cope with life's challenges using MLP: FiM as a catalyst towards "Acceptance", "Understanding", "Empowerment", and "Community". We've presented at BronyCon 2014 and 2015 along with at the 2015 Ponyville Ciderfest.

I, myself, have experienced a lot of ups-and-downs as a result of a congenital eye disease that may finally take what little sight I have left in a mandatory surgery this Wednesday, January 27th. However, Pony has empowered me to see beyond physical vision. No matter how the outcome of the procedure, our team is ready to, if invited, present again at BronyCon 2016... and beyond. :)
