Welcome. This thread is for you Anons who wishes to improve your writing or just chill among Anons that do.
This is suppose to be a chill af thread. It's fine if it becomes a slider thread. I'll only make a new one of these if there is intrest.

>What is the need for this thread when we already have Glimglam's review thread and Anonfilly?
Compared to Glimglam's thread this thread is about what we Anons will or want to create. The only reviewing that might happened here is incidental, as in providing critic to some other work through comparison with the work at hand, and when one Anon tells another what his opinions of their work is.
This thread is first and foremost about producing stories.
This cannot be done in the Anonfilly thread since it is about Anonfilly first and foremost.

>Why a thread like this? Cannot we just have threads pop up organically because an Anon chose to post a green?
Yes, you are right. And this thread is absolutely not against other threads that circle around a singular story made by an Anon.
What this thread really is, is a form of support group for anyone wanting to write but are struggling with something in their writing process, like myself.
I thought it would be a good idea to talk to other Anons who also have similar goals about our stories and are struggling in creating them. Maybe, you struggle on something I don't and maybe I struggle on something you don't and therefore we can provide advice to each other on how to overcome our problems? Maybe some mysterious wise Anonsage lurks and our discussion prompts him to tell us his method he gained from meditating on top of K2 for five years without chicken tendies.

As stated before this is relaxed thread. If you like the thread, you don't have to pressure yourself into posting something to bump it. If anyone would like a continuation of it, I'll post a new one if it hits the archive. It's also okay to get off topic sometimes as well. I understand that conversations can lead to tangents and that it can be a relief finding someone else to talk to about things with, especially if few shares the perspective. If things get out of hand, I, or someone else, will ask you to kindly take this discussion to another thread or more fitting board, even perhaps. As an actual sugguestion, not a hidden insult. You and another Anon might discover something really intresting to talk about so why not create a thread about it?
Memetexts are, of course, welcomed.
Also, you don't have to share your problems if you don't want to. If you feel like telling us about your story that's enough. Story ideas can be really intresting to listen to and it might help you in return. Again, only do that if you want to.

So that's about it for the thread's header. The rest that follows is about me.

Right now, I thought about making the most simplest story I could think off. It's a simple hero's journey story. I do this because of two reasons. First off, I wanna know that I can start a project and see it to the end. I have only succeeded in finishing short stories before, you see, so this time I wanna try something longer. I also wanna keep it simple so that I don't get overwhelmed during the process of writing it.

Story's reworked, plz gib feedback

https://ponepaste.org/6313
Password is still "TwilightsAsshole"

trying to avoid saying "I" or "Me" in posts now.
some horny scenes were designed to be very unsexy, since it would hurt the "DON'T BE A SLUT" message if he was shown actually enjoying sex
all sexual activity is offscreen
also included shit designed to please the audience like giving the main hero a non-blood-related sister/daughter figure. setting her up as a red herring, the hero will marry and fuck Twilight even if the audience is rooting for something more degenerate. plus hero gets to be heroic and protect his daughter from baddies once their collars are off.

am proud of this opening line:

>Once upon a time, in the magical land of Equestria, everypony you know and love failed the world and fucking died, the end.

seems to really set the mood when it comes to thoughts on FE, along with the edgy black-and-white power fantasy dream sequence followed by powerless reality.
The hero of the book is called a faggot by his writing teacher for writing something like Fallout Equestria.
seems funny to me.
hopefully this is right.

Guess that's always the crux of it, isn't it? Shit doesn't get written if you don't write it. But fuck if it isn't easy to just open the document and stare at it all night lately. Honestly doing a greentext might be a good way to get out of that; knowing that there's an audience waiting for updates because you're basically publishing the story as you write it can be a good motivator.

A /ub/ thread on vitamin supplements would be great. Buying shit supplements or buying any supplements from jews would suck.
A ton of writers and writing guides say something like "Inspiration and motivation are fickle bitches, get yourself some discipline and determination. Replacing bad habits with good ones is what's important".
That advice helps keep one working even when one doesn't feel inspired.(yay loophole)
What did you think of the Fallout story? So far it's gotten to the bit where the hero finally gets to the good church of Twilight and pals and is finally ready to get his bomb collar taken off so he can train, undergo a timeskip, and purge the wicked from his homeland with sick guns and ammo and scifi bullshit.
The temptation to spergishly splurt over 20k words of "fuck battle saddles and fuck fallout equestria's take on Power Armour and guns and energy weapons, here's my better battle saddle and better power armour and better energy weapons" is there, but the temptation is being resisted.
No need for infodumps on engineered superior artificial arm options because the lioncorn can aim and fire handguns with his tail.
Laser guns work because they are magic. No sperging for 10k words on light diffusion here.
The magic power armour is literally blacksmithed medieval armour enchanted really really hard to speedboost and magicshield the wearer enough to make piston-assisted power armour irrelevant.
Fallout Equestria had this tendency to try to "fix" something smarter men mocked (even if Kkat didnt understand why) by including an exact copy of it then fucking with that copy by including his bad excuses for things to be almost as bad as they were in the original or worse. Nonsensically safe child-only town next to a Skyrim dungeon becomes a town (nonsensically close to fucking Canterlot) where kids exile adults "to make the town unappealing to slavers" (wtf unguarded children are very appealing to slavers), meanwhile the nonsensically-rich nothing-producing tower in the middle of fucking nowhere becomes a tourist destination (in the middle of bandit-infested enemy territory?!) full of fags that pay scavengers to get 200yr old ingredients for their fancy restaurants and somehow dont realise the "assistant to the radio dj" dyke who buys her own food secretly is the omniscient radio DJ who lives in the penthouse suite of the magical see-anything hyper-surveillance tower Tenpenny Tower secretly was all along.
That's homosexual. So it wont be done in my story where possible. The goal was to take these moments where something retarded in the original has to be here or else it isn't really FE and fix the root cause of what made them retarded as quickly and efficiently as possible. So while an arm mounted retractable gun could have been designed and explained to the audience simply letting chars shoot handguns with their Tangle The Lemur tails is faster.
and if it's faster that means it has to be better... right?
btw instead of making the character pause the story and directly explain shit to the audience the "Show dont tell" principle was used to show characters arguing or talking while seamlessly expositing info on guns or worldbuilding.
though that scene where profanity-laden fags argue over whether ballistic or energy weapons are cooler (while explaining how energy weaps work and what they do) seems to drag on for a bit too long.
Though perhaps a scene where someone points and shoots the energy weapon, melts a target, and says "good it's working the way it's supposed to" could give that exposition better.
maybe a scene where Sparky is forced to test and repair many guns, giving him an excuse to fire every gun type the audience might not be as familiar with as traditional bullet guns. Then he could repair a laser pistol and plasma rifle to explain their internals to the audience.
Might have written myself into a corner by making the Stable one big anti-magic field. Means all laser weapons need a sciencey excuse not a "because magic" excuse.

I'd advice that you break whatever you're writing into a minor but concrete pieces.
What do I mean? Well, staring at an empty page makes you ponder what to write. Writing by teh set of your pants can result in you feeling like you haven't written anything important.

The way to break free from this is to set the process up so you know you always do something. If you were to finish ten math exercies, then you would ask yourself how much you have done nor if you're actually doing something now, right?
Even a single math exercise, like 2+3*4, is about two things: The order of tasks and a binary state of completion.
You know in which order you should solve it and you know when it's done. You should break your own story into such pieces, it will help.

Like a simple action story: Anon fights off some timberwolves that attack Fluttershy's cottage.

A= Summary: Tells us that why and that Anon has been staying with Flutters since he came to Equestria.
B= Anon's description.
C= Where: Anon and FS is out and helps some bats in a tree during the night.
D= Suddenly a wolf lounges at FS but anon intercepts.
E= Action scene: He beats that faggotry out of that wolf.
F= He and Flutters snuggle together as they roasts marshmellows over a fire made by the remains of the wolf.

Back then Modintervention.PNG
>>330157
>>330163
>>329984

I have been thinking about all of these and want to share my thoughts.

While I appriciate this,
<My real question is if you will start to delete his irrelevant posts in the future or something
>Yes.
there's is a bit more to unpack for me when it comes to this.

<I don't think this is something that can be fixed without mod intervention.
I kinda found myself disagreeing with my previous self.

Why? Well, uhh, how do I start? Essentially, the problem is that, for example this shitstorm or drama didn't start with Nigel posting irrelevant posts but because Ninjas criticized his creative method of pitching an idea to us, without context, and asking for specific ways to change them. Just go up and read it and see for yourself. When you do that, you can also check out that I had just had an exchange with him where I criticize him for basically the same thing but later retract what I said because I realized that he is allowed to post these posts here because, they are sorta related to the thread. I just disliked his creative process.

However, you see the problem, right? Just because his post belonged in the thread didn't make his creative process any less ridiculous.

But then the question becomes how will mod intervention take shape to stop this if this shitstorm or drama started from just in thread criticism and not from Nigel posting irrelevant posts.

The posts I have you;ed above that belong to Nigel are post that I easily could criticise, not everything but some stuff, like his *rolls hand in the air* "story".

How would that play out? Probably, like this,
>Be me.
>See dumb Nigel story.
>Give him, despite everything, genuine criticism.
>Response is half feigned ignorance and questions on how to improve other aspects of the story while giving no indication on implementing your original criticism, half is some tangentially related rant about some media, probably F:E.
>Exasperated and naively suprized of the response I got from my clear communication.
>Continue attempting to get through to him.
>Ninjas joins the party.
>"Oy oy oy, my haters, they never make any substantial arguements only throw labels at me."
>"Niggel!!!111 (((jew))) britBONGmutt-iod. Gashlight. Gashlight. Gashlight. All (((U)))kucks do is GASHLIGHT!!!!!"
"Nigel, I actually don't dislike you. I think you have a lot of merits but you can't do this stuff ->(Expains in galaxy brain levels of detail, in unambigious and crystal clear langauge, with such artful precision on how to solve all problem in the world.)"
>"There's no point in even trying, brah. Let me present to you my psycologiacl analysis of his state of mind. As you can see, dopamine goes in here, gashlight comes out here."
>"I wonder what my haters would do without me? I always try to improve. I workout, I do nofap, and I work on my game. What has change for him, he is still just obsessed over me. Has to be a sad life."
>Most of the time, the thread continues and so the storm is interrupted or we detractors let it go. In the worst case, there's mod intervention.

This leads me to prophecies the future. The staff here will have to come to a decision. Consider the following:
Either, the staff let's the drama continue* (I leave an asterisk here because I'll get back to this.) and just doesn't get involved and let's it spiral whenver and wherever it happens; or they make and intervention.

If they make an intervention, then, I believe, they will have to pick a side.
Either, they start to get comfortable with ban hammer and juast smashes Nigel around whenever he's being a sperg and post something stupid like a dumb story, take note that this isn't what I want, at all, but how it reasonably will develop if Nigel is the one being corrected.
If it is us (all involved) or us (detractors), which is unlikely so it really is just us (as all involved), that needs to be stopped to stop the drama; then nothing will really change.

I am suppose to not criticise the things Nigel post, that I find wrong, just because I know it will lead to drama? As I said, I could already from these two posts of his alone, start the cycle anew by just giving genuine criticism and him just not taking it. Like seriously though (Here's to prove it.), I could just ask about why he still have his moronic walls of text for dialogue. Obviously, since he has not fixed this in four years, and this has been brought up to him a few times since then, it's unlikely that he will do anything with that criticism now.

So I don't see how the mods will change this because I don't believe you will go to the outright lengths of banning Nigel, either (when his a sperg). Honestly, though the whole concept of banning him rubs me the wrong way as well on some level, or does it?

Here's the thing: The more freedom in your speech you have, the more drama you can expect. The more you ban, the less drama you can expect because the one side will be removed from doing anything and it's not like the other side will eat themselves up.

From my bias, I think Nigel is the one in wrong but at the same time I think that we solved it well last time when GG became a thing and the whole site did worry about how the thread was derailed due to drama but joined in to shit on Nigel for just posting a shit story. This might been an overreaction on there part but that's how it went down. The mod intervention that happened back then was pic related.

I don't wanna ban Nigel (when he's a sperg), I don't, but I'm wondering how and what kinda of mod intervention will change anything, except for that. Take note that I'm not condeming this either. If there's no other way, then so be it. But I don't want to. What is the plan? How will you solve this problem? Does the staff share my view on the situation? What is the likelihood that nothing changes and this happens over and over again? Is that preferable to a ban?

Nah, you're not annoying at all. I enjoy the fact that someone cares for what I have to say about writing so it makes me happy to know. I'm a bit lazy though so you'll probably have to remind me more n the future. I'll try to get some more thoughts about your story written down.

I also want to add that I did not criticise Nigel's posts. I know where that leads at this point. I won't bother will Nigel again, until he shows some serious improvements when it comes to these kinds of things.

So I'm not talking to Nigel here. I'm directing the above post towards the staff. Neither, am I put much effort into convincing people of the truthfulness of my position much because that's been done by this point.

I promised myself not to bother will Nigel since he doesn't listen.

For quick clarification, I'm not the anon that does the over-the-top rage posts and calls him Niggel. Additionally, while you satirize my psycho-analysis, I havent yet heard anyone indicate that its wrong.
>will mod intervention accomplish anything
In my opinion - and one tbat did not make me popular among the rest of staff because I was pro-active rather than reactive - it doesnt matter.
Ill repeat that.
It doesnt matter whether or not mod intervention will accomplish a change. He should never have been allowed to flagrantly derail countless threads, and that he was is dereliction of duty. Staff gave up and gave in to Nigel years ago because 'it was too much trouble' to be consistent with him.
In this particular case mod intervention is inappropriate; Nigel came asking about his creative process, and I told him. Thats what happens in the creative writing thread. That it spiralled outside the scope of creative writing is because - you guessed it - staff has been derelict with Nigel for far too long. Maybe it has gone unnoticed, but I only started sperging again because he has been getting more brazen with his.

Dammit, didnt mean to post yet.
Tl;dr Policy is mostly clear, and it doesnt mention drama. Ergo, drama is no reason to intervene.
The important question is:
Does staff have a responsibility to work toward an increase in quality for all users, or does it have a responsibility to work toward an increase in quality for individual users?

Went to the archived version because I wanted to see if I saw anymore mod intervention, then that one I remembered. Found this little gem. It doesn't actually bother me (anymore, though it has I won't lie), I just find it funny.

I remember some mod declaring Nigel as the faggot in one of those threads on behalf of Atlas.

I'm not feigning ignorance, normal people don't memorize every word of every conversation they've ever been in four or more years ago. At that point in time had I uploaded the "Silver beats Glimmer and calls communism retarded" chapter yet? Looking back it was cringe. The fight was under Silver's control for too long, it needed more moments of tension where his foe had the upper hand. Maybe Glim could steal his cutie mark forcing him to do something clever to get it back. Plus it needed more buildup. And better writing overall. If I included Glim in my rewrite I'd make Silver and Glimmer two characters that both think they can convert the other after enough talking about their political views and how surely obviously right their respective views seem to them. Glim would be done with forcing her views onto others with magic and lies but there would still be a part of her that thinks it would be good for somebody sufficiently perfect to have all the power, while Silver is libertarian and dislikes the idea of absolute power. I think it would make Silver more interesting if he was the type who would look upon an object of absolute power and say "Nobody should have all this power". The old Silver would have looked at it and said "oh sweet another one for my collection" before tossing it in his extradimensional storage space with the rest.

So I won't do much tonight but I can tell you that the "..." followed by a huge gap is a bit annoying to read, imo.

I get the point but use that technique sparingly, otherwise the effect seems less delibrate and more like you had some upload problems. Stuff like that have diminishing returns. I'd sugguest you use it on three times that are dramatically opportune moments.

I like that your opener starts off with action and so it continues through most of what I have read of the story. This is good. While sometimes tone shits can be used to great effect, it's normally good practice to keep the tone consistent.

Noice, i think the tone does shift a little in the second chapter, but my limited criteria told me to keep it consistent in the first chapter, this with the purpose of "setting the tone", and letting the reader know what kind of story it is.

Literal clown world shit guys. You're letting a tranny push you around that's so close to suicide you can smell the gunpowder already. He's not going to stop bitching until you get rid of him for good, (if I may be honest here, letting him stick around was a rather impotent move. You don't let a live-in girlfriend stay at your house after she breaks up with you). He's been causing a nonstop shitstorm ever since whenever this was, a year ago? Pretty much just accusing everyone else of what he's doing and nagging the shit out of them because what else would an antifa shitstain get up to. Ah, take the knee, see if I give a rat's ass. Stunning and brave, guys. Really.

It would be great if the criticism of my fic was posted here and any unrelated bullshit, like dishonest baseless accusations or whining about misremembered past events, could stay in that side thread.
Personally do you think I ruined the impact of my story's "Cold Open" prologue featuring Sparky's dream about killing raiders by adding that other prologue that started with "once upon a time everypony died" and showed Sunny's writing teacher calling him a faggot?

Addendum
The assertion that criticisms against Nigel are
>dishonest baseless accusations or whining about misremembered past event
Is a deliberate gaslighting. This gaslighting - not exclusively - is precisely why there is another thread, currently discussing his narcissism. Nigel will never admit that there is any basis for these, claims because they threaten the self-importance he has built up to shield himself from decades of being abused in a variety of manners. Nigel is a good person, but he has been conditioned by abuse to maladapt any criticism against him in an unheal5hy manner. This is why he shirks honest suggestions and blazes forward as though with a mandate.

Yeah, exactly. Do you think I ruined the intended effect of the cold open when I made it no longer a cold open?

I've been thinking of rewriting this scene entirely. The vaguely-defined filly being saved from Raiders could be replaced with a more recognizeable face, and I don't think the "Haha Fallout Equestria sure is a WACKY setting full of OP characters and skeletons and lockpicking's useless" dialogue is landing right.
I like the visual of the book being used as toilet paper because I ripped that off from Shrek.
But I could mock environmental storytelling skeletons and "lockpicking=miraculously untouched loot including 200 yr old perfectly preserved food" better by making the filly run past a mountain of skeletons and lockpick her way into a room she thinks is safe, but it contains food and one environmentally storytelling skeleton, and then the raiders smash the door down and she either
>a. goes "OH FUCK I FORGOT THAT'S POSSIBLE"
>b. thinks "Why hasn't anyone smashed this door open until now for the potential loot inside?"
Perhaps if the opener has Sparky showing off his literal fanfic about saving a canon pony from raiders, I cut out much of the "You are my daughter" exposition and "This world is silly" talk, then included the "Once upon a time everypony died" dialogue in the start of Sparky's narration to the reader.
I can always just write a second cold opener with Sparky dreaming about a different scene of the simple morally black-and-white violence he fantasizes about to cope with a world gone mad.
Maybe set it up to subvert audience expectations. He gets laughed at as a kid, I show a scene of him being violent, fans assume he's snapped IRL, but nope, it's a dream he's having between sessions of fixing tech Karens keep breaking at Life Bytes.
Although... If I end up never giving the hero a PipBuck but many of his enemies use them do I need to bother saying what they do in a scene like this?

Btw I had this idea where the rabbit who sucks Sparky off in a train bathroom (how romantic, amirite?) gets beaten up by a crowd of grass-eaters for interacting with the "wrong" species, and this happens right in front of a pro-divershitty mural made by grass-eaters for grass eaters. Sparky shows up in time to save the day but she's still got injuries.
The scene could spell out to the audience how their desired diversity only ever goes one way and it's common for foreigners to loathe, even attack, those of their kind who mix with whites in a manner whites would consider exclusively reserved for fictional rednecks on TV. Her having injuries gives him an excuse to take her home and offer her first aid while muttering "I wish we had those health potions that cure everything but only the rich have that luxury. Also it's a shame I can't call an ambulance without getting arrested and sent to a work-camp under suspicion of giving you these injuries no matter what we say".
Sparky does a lot of grumbling about how much the world sucks but I think depicting him caring for someone unrelated to him would help establish him as a fundamentally good person whose kindness can extend to everyone who's not evil. I like kind protagonists, and I think I suck at writing smug assholes.

Also I was thinking
The PipBuck is a cheat device. Aims and fires your guns for you in a world where Battle Saddles already aim and reload your guns for you via magic (but rely on a manually bitten mouth trigger so only VATS users can aimbot like chinese cheaters in TF2/Counter Strike).
Also does all sorts of other shit, yet Fallout Equestria treats LP like she's some kind of special chosen one for having plot armour and "Getting the most out of this multipurpose cheat device seemingly only I have" as her Cutie Mark.
Would the hero of my story be cooler if he beat VATS users without any kind of PipBuck-like device, or if he invented and utilized a homemade device with different less cheaty features like keeping an eye on your health and that of your teammates, marking enemy and ally positions while being able to call out threats and order teammates around, having a phone, being able to call in supply drops and drone bombing runs and artillery strikes, auto-hacking enemy PipBuck to fuck with their HUD and disable their cheats, and so on?
I like the idea of a scene where he uses his "SparkBuck" (Better name pending) to hack an enemy's PipBuck and hack its targeting system, forcing that enemy to shoot himself. And a scene where he disables everyone else's autoaim, fucking with the aim of everyone who relied on that and justifying the whole "Villains with guns never shoot the heroes anywhere that matters" bit.

I'm doing it again, aren't I?
Getting distracted by what would make this story "cooler" instead of focusing on the primary message and core themes.
He should start off with no pipbuck and struggle to beat cheaters with pipbucks. He should sweat and struggle and sacrifice. It should take effort.
Making his AntiPipbuck to negate the PipBucks, a PipCuck if you will, that should be a moment of triumph after a lot of effort. Once your hero can "Lelouch Vi Britannia commands you to activate VATS and shoot your friends and then yourself" anybody within hacking distance any physical challenge posed by PipBuck wearers is pretty much over.
The first time he fucks with someone's HUD and then puppets them this should feel as earned as the first time his artillery network finally gets commanded to call down a series of attacks on enemy territory.

In the movie Idiocracy there's this bit where the hero is loathed by the idiot populace he's trying to save. They throw him in an arena to be killed by monster trucks. It's a literal public execution cheered on by the idiot masses whose bloodlust only fades once someone on TV tells them the hero is right and shows them his "water crops with WATER" idea is right.
It's a powerful piece of propaganda.
The average everyday man is saved from the idiots by the prostitute on TV. Trusting the TV saves the day, or the idiot's tendency to trust the TV saves the day depending on how you look at it.
For a movie meant to demonize idiots, it lets them walk away thinking it's ok if they keep trusting "the right" people on TV, whoever they are. And for the smug libtards, it blames declining IQ scores not on the turd-world immigration leftist scum enables, but on the conservative rural christians.

Maybe it wasn't right for the hero of my story to get the money he needs to move from fagland to churchtopia so easily. Maybe there should have been an arena fight against something huge (libtard sheep in giant robots?) Sparky wins by blowing up a big TV that was spewing enemy propaganda.
It's symboic. (CAW)

I got messages saying the opener of the story was too dark and turned away a few viewers. Maybe instead of thinking about how hopeless everything seems he could be thinking "My big fight is coming soon. I still have hope".

I wouldn't go that far, tbh. The real message was to get personally involved in politics or globa affairs, even if you don't think you're he right person and are only average. It opens with "Lead, follow, or get ot of the way", but the real message was to lead, or a the very least follow who you believe in.
I may be biased because I like the movie.

I thought the movie opened on demographics and inheritable IQ being framed as high-IQ cityslicker jews who never get around to sex vs white redneck americans.
Personally I like the film too. It's hilarious. I'm trying to view media through the propaganda lens to improve my own.

Btw I was thinking... anyone who genuinely desires freedom ends up realizing only nazis can defend freedom from jews. Anyone who desires free speech and free thought will eventually hear a good argument for the truth and learn about how fake the holohoax is. So maybe instead of trying to make my audience hate libtards as much as me and support a white christian ethnostate I should focus on more family-friendly pro-freedom pro-truth ideas. Time can handle the rest.

It moreso opened on the "smart" people who have the means to fix society failing to do so.
>white redneck americans
Redneck yes, but I wouldn't say the focus was on him being white. They compared a bunch of intelligent educated Americans all failing to reproduce when a single redneck managed to have thousands of spawn because he didn't give a fuck. There was no shortage of niggers in the idiocracy; even UPGRAYDD mabaged to have thousands of descendants who shared his retarded surname.
The point was that waiting around for the "correct" people to fix society is stupid, because if they were competent or willing enough to fix it it wouldn't be broken in the first place: people are not suddenly going to wake up and get smarter about the shit they do; if anything, they're only getting dumber. Average people need to take matters into their own hands.

This is a better approach. Focusing on what you hate/exclude is a fool's errand unless you make a point to elevate what's important. Normies may seem braindead for allowing society to rot, but the problem isn't necessarily ntelligence but rather that they don't have their priorities straight. People need to be taught why family, freedom and truth are important things worth protecting; and people who are on the fence about those ideals could benefit to have them reinforced.

That's another thing I've been thinking about...
FIM is a semi-liberal show sometimes. There are a lot of good things about this show, but when Rarity bats her eyelashes to make simps work for her it's treated with no less severity than if Fluttershy were to ask nicely to get pet bears to pull their cart. The thought that the simps might expect payment never comes into their mind. Men like Spike are called greedy if they accept too many gifts, or expect them.
FIM's take on Dragons not raised by ponies are the feminist writers take on men not "raised primarily by women": Brutish thrill-seeking bullies. No wonder so many male fans of this show self-insert or make up new male characters when there are so few male characters to use as your de facto self-insert.
Spike's treated like an afterthought and in that book where he was turned into a pony, his Cutie Mark wasn't fire or a scroll or a dragon claw, it was Rarity's face on his ass representing his talent at being a Rarity simp.
So the average audience of FIM fanfiction is already likely to lean left through deliberate evil or through not knowing better.
Then there's Fallout. Despite all its pro-libertarian messages about self-reliance and considering the fallout of your actions and being the shotgun-toting pure-hearted smart talker the world needs, despite its occasional flirtations with the conservative's power fantasy of power-armoured Power Ranger Halo Spartans and Giant Robots killing Communists and A Jew's Perception Of Nazis for you while conflating the two, the series still chose to take "1960s America bad" to an absurd degree with the Enclave. I wish I could chalk this up to Bethesda being shit writers who love their black and white villains but even Fallout 1 and 2 had this kind of shit.
The Globalist NWO ruining the world is painted as an exclusively American thing with American businessmen and politicians and generals working together. The thought that they might be working with the commie Chinese and other threats to whites never comes up and demographics? Never brought up intentionally. The idea that the descendants of these people might have good intentions for America? Laughable when they're typically written as cartoon supervillains with conquering America or genociding America before repopulating it on the mind. The most even-handed approach the franchise ever took to the Enclave was when they were depicted as countryless and tired old veterans ready to go out in a blaze of glory "making up for their past sins" by "fighting for the right side instead for a change".
Don't get me started on the "sterile" "Master Race". Sure he mentions wanting to transform the world through making them mixed mutants united under his heel but there are countless other words this collectivist racemixing transhumanist fleshcancer could have used to describe himself and the end result of his project. Would it have really killed them to call his army The Collective? Couldn't they depict a commie honestly without slipping in some "hurr durr nazis bad" buzzwords too? Hitler would have opposed The Master if he was real.
Then there's the NCR. What makes the NCR bad? Well, the same thing a Liberal would claim makes America bad minus anything that Liberal has to say about race. "Imperialism, Bureaucracy, Dumb People, Taxes, Rich Men(cow barons), and a corrupt democracy full of Evil Corrupt Individuals!" say the authors, unwilling to depict a single libtard NCR politician hurting innocents in the pursuit of pussy libtardism whether he knows he's serving communism or not.

So already, while there are certainly exceptions (Just look at this site, or any Fallout fan who prefers Obsidian!Brotherhood Of Steel or the Enclave or Caesar's Legion to the New Cuckifornia Republic or Minutemen) the average intended fan of Fallout or MLP is likely to lean left.

Then there's Fallout Equestria. It's dogshit.
It's also tremendously Liberal.
While Liberalism failed Equestria in this story, the author's intent is clearly to depict ponies as fools who "lost their way" and failed to live up to Sufficient Liberalism.
The mane six were granted absolute power and ruined Equestria by failing to be sufficiently Liberal, even as they were both being warred on by moon-phobic Luna-loathing mindlessly-religious school-bombing heartless barbaric Zebra cultists AND making refugee camps for all the Ziggers who felt like being fed and doing drugs in Equestria despite the pony and pony police presence.
Fluttershy's peacetard behaviour gives the Ziggers healing ICBMs, they reverse-engineer them into nuclear dynamite vests and smuggle them into Equestria with the help of the traitorous Four Stars corporation.
Equestria burns and dies so 200 years later, libtard murderhobos who view libtardery as the only way despite their token disagreements on shooting rapists in the act vs dragging them away to be rehabilitated and killing their enemies with needle guns and shotgun-toting allies vs killing them with shotguns yourself while claiming you've "Never killed anypony and have still never killed anypony as far as you're concerned".
FE's libtards view roaming the world and killing all who fail to live up to their leftist moral standard as their goal in life. They don't just invade bandit lands and "self-defense" any criminals protecting their stolen territory, they openly instigate fights with and remorselessly kill+rob Brotherhood Of Steel TechnoFeudalists and Arbu cannibals and Red Eye's Slavers for being "Bad"(TM).

Fallout Equestria is a tranny leftist's power fantasy and despite all its purple prose and B.S. about Values and Moral Greys, LP never has her certainty in her right to kill+take+redistribute as she pleases challenged plus all her villains are one-note villains who mwahaha. Bootleg Rita Repulsa minus the charm, Pro-Slavery Wannabe-God, and a cardboard cutout named General whatever whose goal is genociding the earth below Bioshock Infinite style.

FE Fanfic? Too niche.
Must find new angle.

Do you think I was too obvious with my subtle gay joke in one of the later chapters?

>“Are you sure? I heard a rumor that a cat named Friday-”
>“Everyone's heard rumors about the legendary Doc Friday, and how he's so spectacularly homosexual, it can damage the space-time continuum and make the impossible happen. Everyone's heard the story of him getting the gold medal for the fastest gay cat to ever do the Olympic backstroke in front of a live audience in a literal swimming pool full of horse semen. Everyone's heard the stories of him sucking a literal six hundred and sixty six penises in one night until each one achieved climax at Club Manhole on Secret Gay Homosexual Orgy Night. They're completely fictional. If someone that gay ever existed, why would he ever go to a decidedly straight Butler cafe like this one when there are so many gay Butler cafes out there? Club Manhole has its Secret Gay Homosexual Orgy Night every Friday, so the jokes about gay shit happening 'on Friday' write themselves.”

Gay cat sounds like Kkat, and his female self-insert OC is named "Friday". But it's got plausible deniability because Doc Friday is a Fallout character.

A thought occurs.
Sonic isn't already a Christian. It would be awkward if I had him randomly praise Christ. I suppose I could add a new raised-Christian character. But he or she would be very out of place when most sonic plots are the same thing over and over. Sonic could go on a mission to stop Eggman from nuking famous churches but that isn't the sort of thing Eggman does.
But Sonic already fights a russian roboticist with a family connected to american conspiracies. And what does he fight to protect? The environment, individual liberty, and his animal buddies.
His sites are full of people longing for the times when he was cool. Back when Sonic had lines better than "Baldy McNosehair". Back when he went on Adventures instead of Boosting down bland rollercoaster tracks full of bowling pins.
Let's rock baby. Aw yeah, this is happening.

Hey, does this fic have good writing?
https://www.fimfiction.net/story/213696/the-sparkle-in-his-eye

It starts off just retelling Ratchet And Clank 1 but with Twilight added in.
However from RAC2 2 onwards it diverges more.
The villains in 2 and 4 try getting filly Twilight on their side. Which makes things more interesting than 3 which just retells 3 but with OP Twilight "improving" everything in a manner that reminds me of old Fix Fics.

Nigel, Im gonna speak from the heart here. I know, you probably have me filtered, but Im gonna try anyway. I can always reset my shit and get to yiu later, its no hurry.
Anyway.
You should stop trying to write literary stories. You suffer from much of the same writing blocks that I have, and cant realky commit to writing an actually good story; it will always be a caricature of a good story.
Which is why you would be a fantastic TTRPG GM. TTRPGS arent afforded the luxury of a deep and intricate storyline, it just needs to make enough sense to get the party motivated to go from point A to.point B. This is also why FoE would have worked as a pony MOD rather than a pony story.
I say this as a GM, you would be great. But with the most heartfelt sympathy, you will never be a real writer.

The pokemon game is for geniuses ready for a higher-IQ pokemon experience, the sonic game is accessible in its gameplay to accomodate beginners and story-wise it's for my fellow adventurebros (boostfags go to a layer of hell where they run forever down a coridoor that looks like Green Hill while going nowhere due to their meaningless fixed speed. Lmao jk boost is fine adventure is just 50x better), and the original game I'm working on is for me and anyone with my highly niche tastes. I know some people and some teams have spent years working on pokemon fangames, but I plan on repeating none of their mistakes so it's fine.

>I don't think this is something that can be fixed without mod intervention.
That has been the defining conundrum since I chose to come here a little over 3 years ago. I would absolutely love to get into the core of this thread, IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE CONSTANT AUTISTISPERGING OF NIGGEL. Of the >20,000,000 words I wrote for old /mlp/ (and for a CERTAIN thread here the XX million or so), it is virtually impossible to TRY and help someone with their brainblock, braindrain, writer's block, lack of motivation, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc., without that fucking dipshit involving himself as if he was the greatest author to have ever lived!

I'll be clear, this once: I did not hate you at all until a certain event last year, which you should damned well remember. Before my previous PC's hard drive died, I trawled every single conversation relating to /mlpol/. The more I came to realize how much of a control freak you were, the more my lack of care slowly became absolute, true hatred upon recognizing you were the one protecting Nigel and his pigshit insanity from any real consequences. Equally as bad, what I've come to recognize is you do not understand lacking awareness of, and being unable to mediate, along with ignoring this board's social dynamics has crippled any topical discussion that should be had.

Why are you even allowing this event to happen, lotus? Laziness? I would understand that. I've burned myself out of every single topic that I wrote for the past 9 years. At times I wake up, look at my PC, and wonder if I COULD ever finish the stories that were started. I hate that. I hate feeling complacent that 'well, maybe it shouldn't be finished since most people here are intelligent enough to finish the ending on their own'. Is it mere decadence, do you like seeing drama unfold? That I would also understand: the Late Greek Empire era showed that drama can be GOOD for people to witness so that they can learn from it, but this.. actual madness has gone on far too damned long. Do you honestly want to fix this entire situation, lotus? Then do the job you have been entrusted to by all the users of this site: get rid of Nigel for his consistently insane, never-makes-a-single-valid-point, gaslighting-for-numulp-is-great-for-flavor, bootlicking leftiness.

I don't even know who the fuck hclegend was or what he did but if you can't come to an honest decision, I will damned sure BECOME better than him if doing so makes even the slightest improvement. Make. the. correct. choice.

>>329987
Post 328456 was me. I'm not only pissed that lotus specifically chose to delete that post, which exposed his past behaviors and bias, I'm disappointed at the lack of basic decency given the 50+ anons that want Nigel gone. In the past hour, that fact alone has made me rethink ever coming to this site, especially given the painfully ignorant insult lotus gave for my 3-day ban.

>>329990
Ninjas, I sincerely apologize for how I treated you last year, and, by extension, a certain artistic person that you knew exceptionally well whom was suffering from unwarranted life problems. I cannot knowlingly apologize for every iota of harm that burning the bridge from you to me has caused. I made that choice willingly in accordance to how shit was going at the time. I regret making that choice now as nothing will heal those scars.

>>330304
Thank you, sir. You've cut down what I have had to state about Niggel to 8 total sentences. And, no, it's been (according to several posters in this thread) 4+ years of that furfag futa-apologist tranny being here without ever being banned, even temporarily. But, at this point, I'm finding it almost impossible to find a shred of empathy for most people. It's draining to consider being here.

Stop derailing. Theres no excuse anymore. Theres plenty of off topic, vent, sperg threads, some of which youre OP of. If you cant cross-board link and keep appropriate material in the appropriate threads, you will be censured. Not staff, thats not a threat, its an observation. Take it as you will.

An idea occured.

You know how a ton of stories have the hero refuse the call because he's not yet ready to save anyone?

My Sparky story has Sparky happily accept Twilight's call to adventure and go to see her, after living his daily life, which tells the audience the Nobles are bad.

But... Is Sparky only accepting the invitation to be a hero because I want to go on an adventure with Twilight and save the world?

What if Sparky rejected Twilight's offer and yelled in Twilight's face, calling her a faggot and pointing out faults in FE in the process? He could prove he's not ready to save anyone yet, and the day could convince him it's time to go with Twilight and risk everything anyway.

But what is left to save? FE takes place 200 years after Equestrian schizophrenic liberalism doomed the world yet it persists wherever Kkat treated it like the only good option in a neverending struggle against every childish cartoonish depiction of everything a libtard would mention if asked to define "evil": racism(enclave and Goddess) slavery(Red Eye), and pooping outside of a toilet or litterbox or designated shitting street(Raiders). There is nothing alive 200 years later the "heroes" of FE meaningfully fight against connected to the end of Equestria. Trixie survived the apocalypse in name only, "The Goddess" acts not like a Twilight and Trixie fusion gone mad but like a generic cackling baddie badly imitating The Master from F1. No matter how many sick fight scenes some shotgun-toting murderhobo could get into 200 years after Equestria is ashes, he can't make everything go back to normal no matter how many fights he wins even though Kkat pretends otherwise so his murderhobo can sacrifice herself for a fake happy ending once he got sick of writing FE.

The best thing Sparky can do for his people is get the bomb collars deactivated and kill all the Nobles to free his home, then seek to build a better world in the ashes of the old world by remembering the life lessons taught by the failure of liberalism and cuckservativism and democracy and big governments... Or time travel to before the war to prevent it from ever happening, like Trunks going back in time to give The Z-Fighters the cure for Goku's AIDS and a heads-up on who the next season's baddie is. But what kind of a story would that make? The hero portals back and talks sense into ponies and then kills all ziggers then fades away with a smile on his face now that history has been changed for the better. That's not a story, that's a meme.

I know my last character was Silver from years ago. But should this character really be Silver from 06?

I do understand your frustration towards Nigel, yes.

>I did not hate you at all until a certain event last year, which you should damned well remember
I don't, no. Yes, I remember many of the things that happened last year, but I have no idea what one incident is the basis of your grudge, what it has to do with you, or why you care. I don't recall ever seeing or interacting with you before you started acting like I fucked your wife and pissed in your cereal. If you want to hate me for reasons, that's fine, I don't really care. But please understand I don't fucking know who you are.

>protecting Nigel and his pigshit insanity from any real consequences
Okay, let's work towards curbing the more obnoxious behavior. I agree with what I believe is the basic gist of your post which is that the previous staff response has been inadequate and there needs to be a change.

>get rid of Nigel for his consistently insane, never-makes-a-single-valid-point, gaslighting-for-numulp-is-great-for-flavor, bootlicking leftiness.
An outright permanent ban, I think, is not necessary, good, or enforceable. Limited term bans for specific behavior, however, may be fruitful. You notice how Nigel shuts up when mod intervention is possible. So I think something can be done, or at least attempted.

>I'm not only pissed that lotus specifically chose to delete that post, which exposed his past behaviors and bias
I deleted all posts relating to the argument that had been made in the thread within the past week. I don't think that anyone questions your claims that Nigel is narcistic etc., so I don't think the post is necessary. It didn't convince Nigel, in any event, and everyone else is already convinced.

>painfully ignorant insult
I apologize for my insensitivity. In my job I have had to work with and try to get help for very many persons suffering from mental illness and I do understand how it causes people to suffer, and how little help is available for such persons in the United States. So I do apologize.

>3 day ban
It was a one day ban, and to be very frank, your belligerence towards all posters on this website is at least as obnoxious as Nigel's belief that he is the greatest art critic in human history.

>4+ years of that furfag futa-apologist tranny being here without ever being banned, even temporarily
He has been banned on at least one occasion that I can remember. The thing is, Nigel actually does stop, at least momentarily, when warned. So he's been given many warnings.

Thank you for your more measured and reasonable response here. I do however have to agree with >>330767 that the proper thread for this discussion is on /sp/

Also, I'm deleting two Nigel posts, FYI.

Nigel, stop that shit

I came here wanting my fic reviewed.
But if you think there's some other way I should act that would prevent these situations in the future, can you tell me what that is?
If a hater starts screeching every insult he knows at me trying to derail threads, how should I respond? How can I get the thread back on topic to be about writing and writing discussion?
I'm tired of those Nigelposters too.

Because it is a meme. You are on thin ice if you want us to remove anything and everything negative about you and your story. This behavior is unbecoming, and this is your last warning. You will not demand that people be censored on this platform. Do I make myself clear?

Becausefuck it
Here's a reading shirpost recommendation of foriegn works
SSS Class Suicide Hunter (the translation team and the original author are fucking eloquint. It's a joy for the word usage and linking flow stuff. This nailed charactoirizing, story flow, showing with telling that works.)
Minor plot points and plotholes that arn't addressed due to still being in production. It's not finished.
s://woopread.com/series/sss-class-suicide-hunter/chapter-1/

Ending Maker
(One remark about ((())). Basically power couple doing shit. Doing power fantasy then doing powee fantasy. It's good for what it is bonus points for off handidly mentioning the odd entwinement with business and politics.) This one is finished.

FFF-Class Trash hero
(Everyone is an unlucky dumb fucker except they aren't, except for those who are. Is entertaining in the low brow expressing of 'one' trick. Succeeding.) This one is also finished.
Wait a fucking second it's all power fantasy schlock. Yes, but they succeeded in other aspects as well.)

I've been thinking about how so many great protagonists have a conflict of interest somewhere in their tale.

Avatar Aang wanted to be a normal kid and a good Air Nomad monk but had to be The Avatar and defeat the Fire Lord.
Edward Elric wanted to get his limbs and his brother's body back but had to serve the State as a State Alchemist.
Ruby Rose has no conflict as she simply does as she is told by those she decides to follow.
And Silver Star has no conflict as he is simply an overpowered cunt who likes Twilight.

If I am to write a good protagonist, it's not enough that he gets involved in conflicts like the quest to gather a few important items first. He has to have an internal conflict like the desire to be doing anything else right now, or an external conflict like duties and responsibilities getting in the way of what he wants to do with his life. Right?

What conflict is intrinsic to the world of FIM?
Ponies just sort of live ordinary lives unless extraordinary circumstances present a problem only main characters can solve.
Then main characters solve it for everyone else.
Sometimes ponies aren't sure what to do with their lives for a while but nopony is ever... drafted, for example.
Perhaps if my OC was military it could create conflict in his life by giving him responsibilities that pull him away from waifu and fun adventures?
Then again Equestria's military is kind of a joke. Plus making him military would make him stronger and I'm trying to nerf him to be less OP.

God, that fimfic general is homosexual. They never provide any arguments for whether futa is gay or not, they're just actual homosexuals/actual trannies who literally have a fetish for shoving their degeneracy in your face and then spitting in your face by calling it normal. Arguing with them is like talking to a giggling homosexual junkie who doesn't even take the argument seriously and also fellates dogs.
If it was normal for human females to have four arms it would be normal to find that attractive. Same goes for if it was normal for human women to be futa. For insects that lay their eggs inside the bodies of others, this is normal. Female moles have cocks according to some book I once read. It would be normal for male moles to like that or at least not mind it. It would be normal for male birds to find female bird wings attractive. But humans? Humans will fuck horses and stick their dick in armpits and fantasize about fucking winged humans and werewolves and girls who are car-sized spiders from the waist down, and then say "At least I'm not turned on by feet. That would be weird".
