Sunrise Stardust and The Burned World
It's not finished but I'd highly suggest reading "Everyday Life with the Guardsmares" from the Guardspony threadshttps://pastebin.com/RHkvDaAw
(this is chapter 1 and you can find the rest on his pastebin account)
It has an anon in Equestria but its focus and perspective is from the guards then him and it expands a lot on the pony lore which would work well in the show, but I won't spoil it anymore
My must-read authors are Bad Horse, Georg, Estee, D.G.D. Davidson, Dan's Comments, DustTraveller, Horizon, and Cold in Gardez. There are a few others but these guys are my short list.
I get the impression from some of their blogs that some of them, maybe most of them, wouldn't approve of this place, nor of being endorsed here, but that's not what this is about. They can write better than most purveyors of horsewords. Maybe in fanfic that's a low bar--god knows I've been reading fanfic in various fandoms long enough, and I have become accustomed to semiliterate ALL CAPS garbage screeched onto the screen by thirteen-year-old anime fangirls. These people write much better than that.
Go to FIMfiction and dive in. Select something short by one of them and see if you like it.
So have you read any of them yet? What did you think?
Is it just me or is Fimfiction not loading? I've tried Brave and Opera but the site just refuses to load, even after trying different locations with a VPN.
It's just you. FIMfiction is working from here right now.
Manos- Hands of Fate. I've always wanted someone to rewrite it in a standard story format instead of greentext, but if you can ignore the format it's pretty great.
>>263346>Sperg goes to Equestria and lives the mustache twirling villain stereotype that the Left has constructed for nationalism; starting an unnecessary war, ruining an idyllic and stable nation, killing thousands of innocents in the process.
I bailed part of the way through after he shells Ponyville
but I haven't seen anything to suggest the writing ever got any better. It's subversive trash that lures the reader in via the "Anon goes to Equestria and ponies love him" trope.
This one is pretty good if you're looking for a less pastel colored, competent villain power fantasy type fic (never goes real grimderp though):>The Unique Properties of Dark Magichttps://www.fimfiction.net/story/439232/the-unique-properties-of-dark-magic
The author was crazy productive for a while but soured on the story and it's been on hiatus for a while now. Still 300K words, and I don't think it leaves the reader on a cliffhanger.>>260781
Seconding ELWGM, it has amazing worldbuilding with plausible technology, politics, military organization and everything else. I'd recommend it to anyone who just wants some slice of life in a well developed fantasy setting, horsefucker or not.
This is a nice subversion of the ReverseGenderRolesEquestria with how nicely it blends with Johnny Bravo.
If you like Johnny Bravo, and ponies. I'd also recommended this one.
One to keep an eye out for is this guy. Some whacky stuff to read, and hopefully a few chuckles. The short stories are nice and to the point.https://www.fimfiction.net/user/56474/whatmustido/stories
This story right here is a clusterfuck of wtf. I've read it for a long while, but...
It has its ups and downs. Inuniverse quirks, and general asshole moments. It's a long read. With some revisions that can be found in the description. I'm not sure which version I actually read at this point.
It's a long story currently clocking in at 2,915,233 words that is still on going. Would I recommend this...
As a stand alone story that has tendrils in many many categories yes. It's a demonstration of shifting genres. As an enjoyable read, it once was for me, but I burnt out there isn't an end yet there is a clear end state. Like some shoenin anime that goal will be milked untill it's dead although it does provide something with the sisyphean journey. Oh and some interesting world building. All the world building all the time.https://www.fimfiction.net/story/45860/diaries-of-a-madman
I've been enjoying that fic thanks for posting it friend. So far the hijinks and the situations are top notch. The storage entries feel like they belong.>>260781
I also enjoyed this one as well. A far different feel most Anon fics have, even with some similar premises. It does them well.
Apparently Argent made the wrong
right choice of leaving himself open to review fanfics. Give him your best works, broncoshttps://docs.google.com/document/d/18fvMCPRs_YAj-96rESUwcZnrlnf5v2SsUVGn2V8aQ6E/edit#
Oh god, imagine adding Fallout Equestria to this list
or Friendship Is Optimal
No, don't. His viewers think we're faggots enough as is.
>To Be a Changelinghttps://www.fimfiction.net/story/429845/to-be-a-changeling
Maybe not "must read" but a good story exploring growing up as a changeling. Guess I like worldbuilding stories.
While this isn't a must read fanfic, so far it's highly amusing.
Take a CYOA character place them instead of the story it's designed for Worm
slam him into Equestria and enjoy the results.
Since it's fairly new it only has four chapters so far.https://www.fimfiction.net/story/469438/hentai-horse-in-magical-pony-land
It'll help clean your palate after the monstrosity that is 120 days.
Flashman version of Blueblood, by someone named Raleigh. Apparently he's been going at it since 2012. And he's still going.
It's pretty good imo.
Serious question, was Heart of war straight up killed? I remember when mlpol first came around I was introduced to it. And I only recently, about half an hour ago was caught up hoping for a continuation in one way or another. Unsurprisingly let down I'm just wondering if any of you guys have an idea. https://pastebin.com/xFcmGR6P
What's that Human Superiority guy who is a mod here's pastebin? I haven't read it, but it came highly recommended from a good friend.
