I miss the days--to all my fans and supporters, you were great. I leave a ghost, honest but neglected promises, and just the tip of the worlds I wished to share...


You heard right, friends and fellows--The Album 2 has been begun! Sign up today!

Interested in joining more collabs? Then come to The Collab Cage! A group that hopes to be ALL things collab for this entire fandom!

The Album is a collaborative project between over seventy different authors. This project was designed to not only create something entirely unique and creative, but to test these authors to write in a different manner than they might normally be used to. The exercise was to take a single character--one per author and no repeats--and imagine a mental 'snapshot' of them during daily life, during a Moment we might not normally see or even think about, and write a story from said picture. So enjoy this collection of short Slice of Life tales--and be sure to check out each author's page and stories. They've worked hard to produce something amazing; please reward them for their effort!

Note: Individual Snapshots are posted in a random order (including my own), with one or two more added per day. Character tags and Rating are subject to change, but each individual snapshot will be marked appropriately.

There's still room for more; visit The Album and see if there's anypony remaining you would like to write.

In anypony's life, there are the big days--tragedies and adventures, moments of loss and love, treasured memories to share and never forget.

But for every single day that comes once in a lifetime, there are hundreds that pass by unnoticed. Sometimes the simplest of moments can have just as much importance and life as the dramatic ones.

Here one can find snapshots of these moments--the every day, often unseen or even unregarded days of the lives of a variety of ponies.

Because every picture, no matter how common, is worth a thousand words.

Our thumbs up button shall pierce the heavens! :flutterrage:

Remember, don't believe in yourself. Believe in me who believes in you!

This is relevant to my interests. Which ones? All of them.

Congratulations, you made him sound like an insufferable twit and I already hate him. In other words, very well written.

Fantastic. Really captured the essence of a schoolteacher quite well, in my opinion. Really, just great work.

Dammit, now I REALLY have to finish mine :P

Nice work, got a chuckle out of me.

I strongly suggest that any and all comments on a particular story go to the individual author's page--please, give them the recognition and feedback they deserve and desire!

And be on the lookout from me! Big things are coming, all Collab related!

About Big Mac liking Fluttershy... I'd like everyone to pick up the phone.

Buck you Blueblood! Oh wait, it was your intention to make me hate him.


You sir, just taught me a pony racial slur.

I tip my hat to you.

wow! this is one of the few fics that arent shipping or comedy or sad, that i actually very much liked! well done! :twilightsmile:

Well, coming from a writer for this collab, some of the ones to come will be sad.

School Daze stamp of approval given.

Not a single dislike yet, hmm?
We're doing good.

I hate him so much right now, i just want him, me, in a room and my trusty axe oh and a locked door :pinkiecrazy:

Oh the glorious Collab! ...Now I need to finish my chapter... *sigh*

1380412 yeah I need to finish mine too... D:

What did I just read...? Whatever it is, I like it.

Dat ending..... SO MUCH DAWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I don't feel anything usually. Except for this.

I'm glad you liked it! I was really inspired the day I wrote this (and it almost didn't make it into the album!)

1380594This was cute. I love your characterization of Aloe and Lotus and it was very well written too. I thought it was interesting how Aloe 'talked' to her stuffed toy even though she was fully grown. I would have liked her to say a few words-she may not speak much but a few, especially when she was afraid, would have been nice. Still, this was an excellent story. I actually wouldn't mind seeing more about it, like what they did with the bed and stuff.

1380721 I'm not sure how to interpret that first part, but I'm glad you enjoyed it.:twilightsmile:

1380820 *fistpump* Yes!

1380859 My original plan was to have them set the bed on fire, but I didn't get it in; it might've gone over the word count allowed. Aloe is mute in my headcanon, so making her talk wasn't really in my cards.:twilightsheepish:

I hope your story's coming along well.:twilightsmile:

It played out very much like a suspense film, which I'm a huge fan of. I just don't see very many stories like this on the site, so to see one kind of made my brain go into awesome overload. It was entirely a compliment, I assure you.

1380912 Oh, well thank you! :pinkiehappy: I never thought I'd write anything like that, actually. But still, I'm glad you enjoyed it.:twilightsmile:

Even though you may have thought that, I'm glad you decided to do it.

She could recover her performing outfit from Twilight Sparkle at any time...

My shipping sense is tingeling dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/Trixie_lolface_1.png .

Oh well, tis a great chapter to a great fic! :twilightsmile:

Are all of these one-shots? Or is this a rotating series. Because I want to read more about all of these stories so far :pinkiehappy:.

1380905 Oh, okay. I read

she was a mare of very few words

and thought she could still talk, just didn't do it that often. Well, if that's the case, I'm totally fine with her not saying a word through the entire thing. And I think you should write more like this. Granted, I haven't looked at your other story yet, but this is really good.

Poor Blueblood. He's never going to amount to anything much and he'll think he's better for it. :facehoof:

They're all one-shots. And we have about 60 writers, myself included (I did Gilda, it should be up in two days or so), each doing a different character from the show. I believe we got them all.

A very good job of showing and not telling has been done here. Wonderful piece.

Also, allow me to point something out:
-But you know? It didn't matter, [...]
I like this use of "you", here. Others have told me it's safer to avoid doing this, but I would disagree. It makes me feel more connected with the story, in a way. Although, I do think it would've read better as "But you know what?" Still, I like it.

For this project they are one-shots, one chapter per character per writer. However, when it's all over, who's to say what could come after? You could always message the authors of your favorite chapters and see if they'd be interested or willing to add future "snapshots" to the characters they worked on. Glad to see you're enjoying the output so far.

This wad both daw and lol inducing. We are not worthy to read this.
Forgive my pun



Almost intentional. :twilightsmile: Anywho, I'm glad you enjoyed it.


We are not worthy to read this.

Glad you enjoyed it.

1381141 I said that to avoid outright making her a mute. It doesn't entirely work, but I'm okay with it as is.

Granted, I haven't looked at your other story yet,

This pic sums that up nicely:

Don't read it. Like, ever. It needs a revision badly.

1380576>>1380721>>1380820>>1380859>>1381017>>1381429 If you see anything I can do to improve my own writing, please let me know. I would like to grow as a writer. :twistnerd::duck::twilightsmile:

1381036 1381234 1381262
Well, damn, they beat me to it!

Yes, they were designed to be one-shots...however, specifically they are 'snapshots'. So if they've been done well (and pretty much all of them have been) they should feel like a moment in time. Like things have gone on before and will continue to go on afterwards. This comment means that the authors were as successful as I believed them to be.

My suggestion? 1381262 said my thoughts exactly. Go to the author's pages, tell them you liked it, encourage them to continue! And look out for more projects in the future.


If you want me to extend Trixie's chapter, I can, but it would have to be done as a commission because I have so much else I'm doing gratis right now.
