Blueblood's just a jerk.
Berry Punch is just a drunk.
Snails is just a moron.
Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon are just mindless, thuggish bullies.
Vinyl Scratch is just obsessed with wubs.
Lyra is just obsessed with hands.
Big Mac is just big. And only says two words.
Bulk "Snowflake" Biceps is just bigger. And only says one word.


There's consistent characterization, and there's lazy characterization. This group is dedicated to collecting stories that explore a pony's behaviors without going into full-on Alternate Universe.

It's not enough that a pony acts a certain way... WHY do they act that way? Where did they come from? What else do they do?

Suggestions are, of course, welcome.

367540 Well I can see the posture as "human-like," but how that leads to hands is apparently beyond my comprehension.

"charming quirk"

Exactly the way I view it. There are other quirks I would prefer to look deeply into.

I think it's a "few steps removed" issue. Sitting > Posture > Fascination > Fetish > Hands > easy to signify, y'see.

And that's why we're here, actually. To fill in those steps, and a few before. Why would she be obsessed with humans? Where would she have heard about them? How does that impact her life beyond "charming quirk"?

Lyra is just obsessed with hands.

You know, this one never made any sense to me. If the thing is based on the way she sits, shouldn't she be obsessed with human legs?

Sounds like my kind of place. Let's give it a shot.

I have multiple stories that explore and expand on male characters (Big Mac, Soarin, Thunderlane, Braeburn, and fancy pants)

As well as stories that give heavy characterizations to all of the background Wonderbolts. I'll be happy to share them with you all :eeyup:

The overlooked characters are the perfect prey to flesh out into unique and interesting ways. Sign me up!

I'm in. I love giving depth to background ponies. :rainbowlaugh:

I like this group, I'm in.

363298 True dat.:rainbowlaugh:

Let's be honest here. I could name this "Squeaky Clean Fics" and get some folks looking for bathtub clop. :derpytongue2:

363236 I think he meant something else.:raritywink:

Man, if there turns out to be an untapped motherlode of spelunker stories, that would be hilarious. :pinkiehappy:

Hidden Depths

You know, this is also going to attract a different kind of 'explorational stories', right? :unsuresweetie:
