12 hours remain · 5:05pm Sep 9th, 2018

Reminder that deadline tonight is midnight, Central Daylight Time

I've still got like, 2 scenes to write in my own, vanity contest entry. I can beat my own deadline, I swear.

If you're a first time author and have to submit your story through the approval queue, as long as it's submitted before the deadline than it'll still count, regardless of when it makes it onto the site. I've got friends on the mod team who can check.

Endings is closed. · 5:49am Sep 16th, 2019

The story submission folder has been closed.

If you submitted the story to the site and forgot to add it to the folder, pm me.

If you're one of the new authors who's stories still need manual approval, don't worry, we'll get it taken care of in the morning.

Go read my vanity entry to the contest.
And also everyone else's, I guess.

I have a lot of judging to do.

Final Stretch · 3:16pm Sep 7th, 2018

This is it, folks, final weekend to get your stories in. I hope you made good use of the extra time, because there won't be any more after this.

I'm really excited to finally start reading all these wonderful stories, and so are the rest of the judges.

It's September. · 4:42pm Sep 2nd, 2019

Two weeks remain for the deadline to the Sunset Shipping Contest. We're at 13 entries so far, and I know a lot of people are still hard at work.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to offer, and wish you all the best of luck on getting your entry in.

Also, I've been working on a vanity entry to the contest myself, which should be ready shortly for your reading perusal.

66 entries. Jesus. You people are insane.

Also insane enough to post at the literal last minute, get everything stuck in the posting queue for the site and make me stay up late.

Whatever. I'm looking forward to all of this. There's over 450k worth of words here to read. I'm pretty sure by story count and by prize money, this is easily the biggest contest in Fimfiction history.

Sunset Shipping Contests: Endings · 5:11am Aug 1st, 2019

Heya folks! Remember that time, two years ago, when I ran a Sunset Shipping Contest that received about 54 entries?

Remember that time last year, when I did another Sunset Shipping Contest that received a whopping 66 entries, and was one of the biggest contests in the sites history? (At the time, anyway.)

Interesting Contest Stats · 5:23am Sep 1st, 2017

Total fics: 50 (it seems one was added by mistake?)
Total ships: 27 (Counting the two Twilights as one ship, and disregarding DrakeyC unknown ship)

Hoo boy... · 6:11am Aug 18th, 2017

I am cutting it close with the word count on my Sunset Shipping contest entry - I finally uploaded the first four chapters to Fimfiction, and they come out at 8,331 words! That leaves a mere 1,669 words left for the final (and incredibly necessary!) part if I don't wanna go over the word count.

This is gonna be tricky. I expect some painful trimming down in my future :twilightoops::facehoof:

Finished writing my contest entry! · 6:44am Aug 25th, 2017

Yay! :pinkiehappy:

It's currently sitting at 10,955 words pre-editing, which might not be as bad as i was expecting? The word max seems to be more lenient than I thought, but I'm gonna ask Oroboro just to be sure.

Either way, I'm really happy with how it's turned out :twilightsmile: I don't know if it'll win, but I'm proud of it either way.

Status Update 8/3/17 · 4:41pm Aug 3rd, 2017

Nothing big, just wanted to let my followers know that I'm entering the new Sunset Shipping Contest. I started work on the story yesterday and managed to get a quarter of the way done on my idea (though I will need to shave a few hundred words off of it at some point, probably...). It was...the most productive writing day I've had in a while, to be honest. But since I'm still working on Synchrony (and

Fic recs, November 11th: Sunset Shipping: Endings edition! · 10:07pm Nov 11th, 2019

Well, Imposing Sovereigns II just wrapped up submissions, so I thought it might be a good time to power through the last half-dozen Sunset shipfics even though there are more important things I need to be doing today. <.< I'm so glad I'm done.

It's been a trip, but here we are again, my friends. The Sunset Shipping Contest returns, with a new focus on journeys and established relationships. 66 entries were written, totalling 476k words. (And 25 pages of review. c.c) 476k! That's longer than Background Pony! D: Which I still haven't started reading…

Featherfall Chapter · 5:32pm Aug 26th, 2018

Since I took a bunch of time writing 'For However Long' as my entry into the Sunset Shipping Contest, I won't be posting a Featherfall chapter next Wednesday. I keep to a pretty strict writing schedule and this story bit into that a little so to make sure it doesn't dissolve I'm going to resume normal postings on the 5th and onward.

That said, I hope you all enjoy my little side story. It isn't Featherfall canon obviously since Sunset is still leggy.

Two things to discuss here. Firstly, if you haven't heard, Oroboro's holding a Sunset shipping contest with the prompt "Changing Seasons." I already have an idea I'm working on. Working title is Automatic Transition.

Furthermore, since now seems to be the time to go into details, lets make this my official "going to Bronycon" planning blog. More below.

The new deadline is:

Status Update 8/16/17 · 1:53am Aug 17th, 2017

Two bits of news for you all tonight. First, with Chapter 5 of Synchrony nearly complete and Chapter 4 already Applety-approved, you should expect an update to that story sometime this Saturday. Look forward to it!

Second, I've completed the first chapter of the third part of my Sunset Shipping contest entry. I decided to split the third part into two because there's a time skip of about a month in the middle of it, and it felt more appropriate to just have it as a second chapter.
