Hello, everybody, and welcome to the group for the best filly, Scootaloo! Please be respectful, obey the rules, and have a good time!
Dreams are such delicate things, and Scootaloo’s are more fragile than most.
But in Equestria, dreams are protected. Sometimes a filly just needs a helping hoof to learn how to hope again.
Featured Story #2
Main Course is a successful chef and restaurant owner. Or he was, anyway, until a fire tore up his life's work and left him adrift. When he visits his sister in the rural backwater town of Ponyville, he discovers an abandoned building that's perfect for a quick fix-up so he can flip it for a profit. But the building comes with an unforeseen tenant, and when he lets her stick around he discovers that maybe, just maybe, there's something out there more important than wealth and fame.
• 3/17/16: Continuing Hall of Fame updates.
• 3/12/13: We have a Steam group! If you want to talk to everyone in a Scootaloo-based chat environment, head on over.
So, you've just come to this group with your new masterpiece involving Scootaloo, you are ready to submit it, and... there are all these folders here. Where in the world should you put your story?
Well, here is where you go to find out what every folder in this group is for, so that you can put it in the right places without difficulty.
However, if you still aren't sure after reading this, just stick your fanfic in the "Unsorted" folder, and we'll work it out. For that matter, if you see a fanfic in the Unsorted folder, and think you know where it goes, feel free to sort it into the right folders yourself. We appreciate the help.
Here are the categories. Unless the story is clop or involves "scootabuse" (see below), Go ahead and add it to all the ones that apply.
Adventure - Fanfics with the Adventure tag.
Tragedy/Sad - Fanfics with Tragedy or Sad tags. May be redundant.
Romance - Fanfics with the Romance tag.
Slice of Life - Fanfics with the Slice of Life tag.
Dark - Fanfics with the Dark tag.
Comedy - Fanfics with the Comedy tag.
Adoption - Scootaloo turns out to be an orphan, homeless or otherwise, and gets adopted.
Taking Flight - Scootaloo learns to fly, gets some sort of flying lessons, or goes to flight camp.
Grounded - Scootaloo displays about as much flying ability as a penguin, and will never, in fact, will be capable of flight.
Special Talents - Scootaloo shows off what a talented young filly she is. This includes dancing, wicked moves on her scooter, and getting her cutie mark. Talented with sex does not count for this category.
Cutie Mark Crusaders - Fanfics where the Cutie Mark Crusaders play a large role.
Big Sister/Mentor - An older pony, often Rainbow Dash, acts as Scootaloo's mentor or big sister figure.
Hurt/Comfort - All sorts of bad things happen to Scootaloo. Then another character comforts her, and everything gets better. See TvTropes, among other places.
As Time Goes By - Anything set at least a few years in the future. Adult Scootaloo, mostly.
Featured - Don't worry about this folder. This is for featured fanfics, when we have some, and can only be added to by admins.
Now for clop. In this area, the rules are slightly different. You only actually want to put clopfics in one of the following three categories. The last isn't just for clop, but some clop is covered in it. Also, anything that goes in the Scootabuse folder doesn't belong anywhere else. Most clopfics won't really go in the other folders, anyways, though a few might occasionally apply.
Clop (General) - Clop that isn't covered by either Clop (foal x adult) or Scootabuse.
Clop (foal x adult) - This obviously covers clop involving a foal and an adult.
Scootabuse - Scootaloo gets raped, tortured, or abused. It never gets better, and the author shows no sympathy towards Scootaloo whatsoever.
NOTE: This is a little bit of a given, but if your fanfic does not, in fact, involve Scootaloo -- even if it has an OC that is just like her -- it will get removed from this group. You have been warned.

Note to Admins: The "Main" folder has recently become a second unsorted folder, so it would be much appreciated if that situation could be taken care of.
