Movie Magic (EqG-S1E2)

Welcome to the Writer's Training Ground.
This group is on hiatus. If someone would like to admin, please ask!

The important things for you as a writer are to find something to write about, to write often to perfect your craft, to finish a story, and to start the next story! Here I will provide you all of the necessities you'll require. All you need to do is provide a completed short story or, at least, a first chapter to a longer work on a weekly or bi-monthly basis. Visit this group the evening after an episode is aired (or on the 1st and 15th of the month when they are not) for writing prompts. All prompts have deadlines* to assure you have a reason to finish. I do not discriminate here between ponies, Equestria Girls, or movies so your fun will be doubled and doubled again! The current prompts are shown on the front page here, and in a forum post. Let's get started!

In Movie Magic, for helping save Camp Everfree, the girls score being on the set of a Daring Do movie being filled by camp alumnus Canter Zoom. Unfortunately, filming is not going smoothly. When a mysterious string of events occur, everything from props going missing to stage sets falling apart, the girls decide to go sleuthing. When a cloaked figure is seen running on the set and an actress is heard wanting to shutdown production, the team must avoid the red herrings and decipher the real clues.


Rainbow Dash is an athlete with a magic geode that allows her to run super fast. What happens when Rainbow Dash confronts a competition where she can’t win by muscle-power alone?

A cupcake fountain is hard to imagine. Despite it being an unlikely prop for the movie Stormy with a Side of Pudding, Pinkie Pie throws a party that features one. Making it work for real requires the ingenuity of Twilight and her friends.

At Rainbow Dash’s request, celebrity-conscious Rarity investigates why A.K. Yearling of whom “you[’d] think it'd be easy to reach someone who is always holed up in her office writing, but Miss Yearling is a very difficult woman to track down.”

Extra credit (optional): Any story can benefit by being written like a mystery, whether it be solving a crime or wondering why the poodle is suddenly pink. Determine the ending of a story and sprinkle in remarks and actions by various characters that foreshadow the ending as well as others that are reasonable but have nothing to do with the ending.

Deadline: July 7, 2017

Place your entries in Movie Magic. Please, only one entry.

Stories must be appropriately tagged Everyone, Teen, or Mature. Remember, stories tagged Mature are not visible to all readers and will not participate in any contests or after-the-fact lists**. Please also select one or more story categories (like Adventure, Slice of Life, etc.). Because I understand preserving the mystique of a story, you are welcome not to provide tags for the main characters.
