The Group Where the Human isn't a Doormat 1,273 members · 462 stories

I think the name tells it all. This group contains HiE stories where the human isn't a doormat. Assertive humans doing assertive things and acting in a assertive manner. Don't add stories that don't meet that requirement.

It's disturbing that this fandom needs a group like this. :facehoof:

Nice group. Good to see such a group exists. 8/8

I'm putting this everywhere I can incase it's not just a rumor.

Screw it I'm throwing my hat into the ring

Okay, I just misckiked and posted my story in the wrong spot, how do I get it out?


The difference is that the threats on Earth are everywhere. As in you can stumble upon some in your backyard. In Equestria, their threats are elsewhere and only become a think when they show up due to some dastardly plot or idiotic mistake or because they periodically migrate. Even then it is only one at a time whereas on Earth it is everything at once and always gets worse.

I feel like this is a joke from the guy that made the your human and you story, but I'm glad to have found this group.

I'm saying that it is maybe a joke because in his group he had written

Feeling angry with a story in this group? Dislike how the humans are being treated? Need to cool off? Consider visiting some of the groups listed below!

in the description.

Like I said, I'm still happy to have found this group, I just wished I could have something in the middle of both groups. I have only read two stories of the your human and you universe, but it seems to usually include Applejack doing stuff with her whole barn of humans. It is just something I don't like, similar to one night stand stories and I prefer usually something where the feelings matter.

I like to explain some stuff so maybe you guys already know the right story for me and have a suggestion,

Does the character have to currently be human? Or does displaced count?

excuse me but i have a request of you. A very nice user called Nosferus has died recently and Nosferus said anyone could take up his story afterwards so i wanted to ask if you would so kindly take up this wish. I know You probably have better things to do but it would mean so much to me if you could keep his story of Don't Get Cocky for me and the rest of his followers it... it would mean the world to me

I can't tell if this group is right for my story or not.

406742 determination is a force multiplier, and a very potent one, but it is not a force in and of itself...unless you have magic such as a green lantern ring, in which case it is. Ponies have some determination of their own. Treating the entire hypothetical war as if determination is going to be *the* deciding factor is...naive? Overly Simplistic?

Besides, look at the date I posted that. Now look at the date of the S5 finale. When I made that post, I had no reference for how ponies wage large-scale warfare, except to look at their abilities throughout the series and add them up. turns out ponies, for whatever reason, do not weaponize their theoretical total-war potential in a large-scale war, and they certainly don't mass-produce their best stuff. This increases the odds that humanity can win a fight with them, because total-warfare is the category in which ponies have the advantage. Which means, by the way, that we win because we happen to have more reliable firepower output, not because of determination.

Of course, if discord decides to help the ponies, we're screwed.

If Murica battles them, determination wins.

I would argue that Equestria is a death world, we just don't see it as such because, well, the locals have evolved to be as badass as their surroundings. It's a death world via different means than earth, but it's still a death world.

Lets see. They have:

Flying tribbles that can eat metal? Check.

Creatures that feed on hatred and freeze everything if they get enough food? Check.

Creatures that feed on love and which do not, on the whole, seem particularly interested in negotiation, thus subverting your best defense against the above? Check.

Dragons? Check.

Other megafauna? Check.

Mega flora? Check.

Insane spellcasters who will make you fall in love with their ugly doll just because they don't want to be late with their paperwork? Check.

A casual reality warper who can twist your personality into a pretzel who sounds like Q and who isn't exactly sane? Check.

Dark magic amulets that gives the users power at the price of driving them insane, and which can be afforded by desperate people who take whatever work they can get? Check.

Random anvils falling on your head for no apparent reason, unless that reason is doing science? Check.

An amazing ultimate defense system...that requires 6 ponies to be friends with each-other and not under mind control or it doesn't work as well, and which it is difficult to find substitutes for if something bad happens to one of them? Check

Actually, ponies can potentially beat us because:
1. They're friends with a blatant, large-scale reality warper known as Discord
2. They can hold the sun hostage
3. They're the ones who have the inter-dimensional portal magic, not us, and thus have strategic control over when and where fights take place.

Ponies can beat us because they have too many large-scale cheats, even though we can probably beat them in most tactical engagements (though stuff like "want it need it" could wreck the day of any infantry).

Evolutionary wise, ponies are like this because their world is bigger and tougher than our own.

The only way we win reliably is if we assume that they can't use their magic very well when in our world a la equestrian girls, in which case they're still the ones with control over when and where the fights take place. (if the worlds are fused together, then they have the other two cheats)
