Long Reads: 10,000+ Words, is a group created for those of us who don't settle for short stories. Don't get us wrong, they have their place, but sometimes you want a meaty story, something that takes a few hours to read. Well, this is a group exclusive to stories of at least 10,000 words. It can be about anything, crossover, adventure, romance, etc. But it has to be at least 10,000 words total.

Last time I looked, that was allowed (my G3 crossover is over 250000 words, incomplete, and in the group.) Though the rules may have changed since I added the story. I think there's a forum post with the rules, that you can look at.

Just out of curiosity, are you allowed to post a story marked as incomplete? I have a story up that only has the prologue and chapter 1 published, but it's already capping off at 46,000 words. :pinkiecrazy:

Since I am new on this group, I went over to the forum, only to find no reference, then checked a few stories in order to confirm what it was we were looking for.
Now I found a few stories to confirm what I was hoping for.
From there I posted two stories I hope does go along with the rules. If not, let me know.

Assuming I am right, I may have a few more stories to post, just need to go over the folders carefully in order to see exactly where to place the following stories, if and when I do post any further stories.

A final note: do we post in one, or all the folders where the story may fit?
Either way, I may need some help with where my stories will belong.

10,000 words... per chapter? I know of a few fics that meet that requirement. :derpytongue2:

I have a group called Bronies for Life and I'm looking for new members. If you are interested, just tap the link. Thank you!

I've started a group on Fimfiction called the Tournament of Canterlot where authors can submit their stories and then try to get their followers to sponsor them by donating to Oxfam’s Syria appeal. At the end of 2015, the stories who’ve gained the most sponsorship share in cash prizes up to $5,000, depending on how much is raised.

There’s also a place for musicians, voice actors and other brony artists to offer prizes for specialized criteria such as the story with the best villain or the best shipping; motivating authors to advertise their stories/ the tournament, therefore raising more money for the Syrian Refugees.

Tournament of Canterlot

Woot! Guessing Games made it to over 10k words!

Apparently that's not as impressive as I may have thought but I'm still excited. :pinkiehappy:

Now, 100K...
XD
There's a group for that now.

Crap! I added a story by mistake! How do I remove it?

10k words is not long, 30k words is not long, 60k words is not long or short, just average, 90k+ words is long and glorious. Considering I usually pound 100k words a day, this group just won't cut it for me.

It is a shame that I am almost out of good 100k+ word fics to read...

My thought exactly. 50,000 is closer to a long story.

An odd question but is 10k word stories really considered a long story? :rainbowhuh:

I usually avoid 1 shots like the plague but it wasn't until recently that i started looking for stories at around 50k+ that fit what i like reading on this site and that was only because i exhausted alot of the good ones with a higher word count.

Never really thought about what that would seem like to others so is it strange? :rainbowhuh:

Blackacre

Blackacre is... many things, but perhaps overarchingly a political intrigue with a delicious undercurrent of [Unease] and [Realpolitik]. You'll either love it or hate it, but there's certainly a lot of it. Sixty-nine thousand words and growing, with a final target in the century region. Enjoy....

Enjoy my story people. :pinkiehappy:

Story name: Malefic Bonds

Folder: Tragedy/Dark/Horror/Sad

Word Count: Over 15000 in just the first chapter out of four.

Erm, this is... Random. IM IN!
