Now first, here is the fanfic I wrote myself:
The premise is rather simple: An earth pony filly (named Aurora) lives in Canterlot, and despite reforms, tribalism is still prevalent. This is made worse, as she has an interest in studying magic. She is constantly bullied by her peers, but things change when she stumbles into the Crystal Caverns underneath the city. She finds a small, hidden study full of books, books for the instruction of earth pony magic, something that had previously only been taught through experience and guesswork. Even then, such magic was passive.

If I say much more, though, it will give too much of the story away.

And on to recommendations!

Alarm Clock, by Meta Four:

This is a story about Ditzy Doo, or if you want to use her full name, Detsella Renombrada Morningdew. Her special talent relates to dimensional travel. Shenanigans ensue.  (No, this fanfic does not include humans.)
There is a story, but I can't tell you any of it because of spoilers. Sorry. But it is great, and you should check it out. It is possibly the best Derpy/Ditzy fanfic out there.

Rites of Ascension, by CvBrony:

This is a big one. 59 chapters, and over 400,000 words, and it still isn't finished. But it is worth it. It is set in a canon where only the first part of Season 3 happened. In fact, the author himself hasn't even seen any other episodes, until he finishes the story.

This is a Twilight ascension story, and in my opinion, it does it in a better way than the show does. It creates well-established canon about magic and related magical artifacts, and the story accurately simulates pony politics without boredom. In addition, it has an overall story arc that is complex and mysterious, while having mini arcs that are fun and exciting to read. The lore alone is fascinating enough, and there is even a separate "Rites Encyclopedia" that explains the canon if you missed it in the story, and don't want to go back trying to find what you missed:

Oh, and Alarm Clock has some pretty great sequels, too.

Ooh, cool! I'll have to check them all out at some point, they sound pretty interesting! ^-^ thanks for sharing! :D

I just read Past Sins ...OHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSH!!!   <3I loved it! :3
I hardly ever read fanfics of anything and even if I do I very skeptical towards them, but I am so glad I read this! :D
I stayed up till 1:00a.m. twice in a row and still couldn't sleep even after dropping my phone so I wouldn't keep reading all night and spent the entire next day thinking about it and trying to sneak away for a few minutes at a time to keep going. I even let by baby brother take a nap in my room so I didn't have to socialize and still felt productive X3

:O Oh my gosh, thank you! I'm so happy I got someone to take some time out of their day...(s) to read such an amazing story! And I'm glad you enjoyed it too, isn't it great? I remember spending many nights reading it myself, till about 2 in the morning! It's so hard to put down x3
I too am often skeptical about fanfics... thank goodness this was my first ever, I don't know if I would feel the same had I read anything different (maybe that's a bit harsh of me, but as I was completely new to fanfics at the time I wasn't sure what to think about the whole thing really.) I'm really glad you enjoyed it, and if you want more the author, the amazing Pen Stroke, has made a few sequels as well :D I hope you can find more fanfics to enjoy soon also! :)
Ah, the catch to playing the game early... :/ a good one, for sure! Unfortunately, I lack the much-needed confidence in my abilities to be able to help in this endeavor. That, and I have a lot of friends who are waiting for the full release... so I'll wait patiently for the game to come out for everypony. From the ponies waiting, to the ponies that do get in:
We're counting on you to tackle those bugs and glitches! May you find as many as you can as swiftly as possible, so that the full release will come sooner! Best of luck to all of you! :D
Congrats to all the winners, and thank you to everypony that participated! :D A bit saddened to see mine didn't get in... :c oh well, that's alright though!
I'm a bit curious now- will there be any more styles added once these are implemented? 25 is a big number, in addition to the few already available. I would love to see even more styles myself, but I could understand if you stopped there (don't want to go overboard, after all. :P) Up to you guys of course, I was just wondering about that. ^-^
Wow, so many awesome manestyles so far! :D And, one of them I even noticed is the same as the one my ponysona has. If that one gets in, I'll be all set! O: lol
Now, my submission:
Spoiler: show

And that's it! I hope it's good, getting the angles right is tough :o I had fun making it though! Hmm... maybe I'll design more, just for the heck of it! lol
I hope you all had as much fun designing your manes as I did ^-^ good luck to everypony in this contest! :)
An LoE mane-and-tail design contest? O: Time to get drawing! :D A couple of questions first though...

1. If I submit a hairstyle on this thread, will that one automatically be my entry? Do I have to specify that it isn't (not a problem if I have to, just curious if I need to or not.)

2. This is more of an idea, but also a question too x3 on General Zoi's pony creator (v3 version), there are many mane styles, that are quite unique. There is also the ability to turn the head, for three angles out of the four shown. Is it possible you could use those mane styles in the game? Unfortunately, the tails are only shown from one angle, so... that makes it a bit difficult to work around that. :\

Anyway, I can't wait to submit an entry (and hopefully just throw a few around lol) ^-^ it's difficult to get the hair looking right from every angle, but I'll do my best! :)

Alright, here it is... my story: (I hope that's right at least x3) just remember, this story is NOT COMPLETED. It has a lot written so far, but I did sort of give up on it some time ago (though I could continue it...) It's basically a romance story between AJ and an OC of mine (well, they don't hit it off right away, but they'll get closer over time. :/) I don't know if anyone is interested in that type of story, but if you are feel free to check it out, and let me know what you think. ^-^ And feel free to link stories of your own, or any that you've read, are reading, or even just heard about and want to share! Hope to see more stories soon! :D

I'll definitely keep that in mind.  ;) Thank you. And I'll surely give a link, when it's finished. But, when it's finished. I ain't got far to go, anyway. On the final climax.

Awesome, can't wait to read it ^-^ maybe I should link my fanfic... it's not done yet, but almost. I kind've gave up on it a while back, wasn't sure if it was any good. :\ Who knows though, maybe I'll finish it someday just for fun! lol

That did help out, actually. I was thinking of using her honesty, but didn't know how to go about it. And that definitely gives me an idea of how to do it. And technically, this is the first meeting. The good already knew the evil existed thanks to an OC in the story, they already met evil Twilight, but this is the first time both sides are in the same room. And it's all of Equestria, mostly in the Crystal Empire. And that's all I'm revealing, lol. Thank you for the help. I hope to get this fic done soon!  :D

Really? O: That's great! :D I'm glad I could help out and give you an idea, good to hear I hit some marks at least lol your story sounds very interesting, you should put a link to it when you're finished (or even now, if you'd like x3) I hope you'll be able to finish it soon, and if you ever need any more help with ideas, I'll be happy to do my best to help again! ^-^

Lol, I think you might be misunderstanding, but all the same, the evil Mane Six are from one of the mirror dimensions.  They generally act like the good ones do, except for Fluttershy, except evil, lol. I don't want to reveal too much of my story, though, so I'm leaving it at that.

I see. So with that, I am now wondering what kind of encounter this is between them. Is a first meet, where personalities are discovered and there is shock? Is it an attempt to change the personalities of the evil mane six? Or perhaps both?
Maybe Applejack could say something about how dishonest the whole situation is, and that they need to stop their ridiculous ways of wreaking havoc. Also something about how they're disrupting the peace and tranquility of Ponyville (Equestria?) Or (if it's just a first time meeting) she could say something about how it can't be true and it must be a dream. Sort of like a disbelief kind of thing.

Well, that's all for now... am I hitting any of the marks? lol Well if not, I hope you can at least branch off of that and think of other ideas... maybe. I hope I at least helped somewhat, best of luck to you and your writing! ^-^

I still need to figure out what good Applejack would say to evil Applejack and vice versa. My current fanfic, the first attempt at one, I've got the Mane Six versus the Mane Six. And I'm attempting to do a small segment of each pony making a comment toward their counterpart. I got Twilight with her hero pride checked, Rarity with her fashion sense checked, Rainbow Dash challenging Rainbow Dash in speed checked, gonna have Pinkie be somewhat similar to the way she was to the changling that tried to be her. And for Fluttershy, I actually thought it be better if the evil version had adopted the attitude she learned from Iron Will. But, Applejack, it's hard to figure out.

I think I'm a bit confused, about the "evil" mane six part. What are their personalities? Do they act in a way that is opposite to each element (a bit like they did when corrupted by Discord)? Or do they do bad things in general and cause trouble? Are the mane six trying to stop them and their wrongdoings, are they hearing negative things and questioning the things they love, are they being framed and are now on the run... I feel like I might need a bit more info, either that or I am completely misunderstanding what you said above... I'm sorry if it should be obvious and I am. x3

Also, hold onto your hats ponies! I've got an idea for LoE that us fanfic writers/readers will just love! :D I have no idea if it's possible... but the idea is a great one! Keep an eye out in the LoE Discussions forum section to find out what it is... ;)

Been a while since I've been here... surprised to see life being breathed back into this thread! O: lol It's good though. ^-^
I'm working on a fic, a one-shot about Scootaloo and... her brother! O: I made him up, of course. x3 I really need to finish it, I started earlier this month, and we're almost in August now! (Admittedly I sometimes lose motivation to write, it's just sometimes hard to keep going for whatever reason. :c One day I'll write without stopping! lol) Also, if anyone wants any help with writing or ideas, I'll be happy to offer my assistance ^-^ hope it's been going well for everypony! Awesome story ideas too, keep up the good (writing) work! :)

Theres a countdown on the Legends of Equestria wiki  :D

There is? O: I wouldn't know unfortunately, as both my phone and laptop for some reason have great difficulty loading wikis, thus I try to avoid them often. x3 It's fairly annoying though, since I know a lot of info can be found on the wiki. Perhaps I'll try my phone again this time around, I know there's no way my computer could handle both the game and wiki at the same time. =P
Quote from: BludSpammd on 2016 Jul 24, 13:45:01
Of course we will.
There is the potential of expanding the world three times as large of what it is right now.
We have a lot of places and functionality planned that has not yet been fully implemented.

THREE TIMES!? Actually, it makes sense- just to hear you say it though, it feels great! :D I can't wait to see what sort of worlds and other places there are going to be, this game is going to be huge and amazing and awesome... at least, even more so than it is already! ^-^

Question -- Will the game open up for play at the usual time, as done from previous OSWs?  At 00:01am EST on Friday?

I was curious about this also, or well- more about if you would have a countdown timer like you've had in the past. Then everypony would be able to keep an eye on it, and know exactly the moment the game starts! ^-^
General News / Re: Announcing Release!

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes! ^-^ Another OSW, I'm so excited! And... limited access release? O: I can't wait for that! I hope I can be one of the lucky ones to get it (and all of my friends too! :D) Just a bit curious on how it works- is it like a first-come-first-serve basis? If so, then that is pretty clever. You would have people have the game for a while, then by the time the next LAA (limited access application) came around, the first set of people will have calmed down with the game making it a bit easier for you guys to keep track of and mod every little thing. Of course it could work differently, I'm sure more info will be released on this over time. Well, however it will work, I'm so excited and can't wait to play again with all my friends!
(Also, THANK GOODNESS that the date is right before the 1st of the month... I want to take my vacation from work for this, and we're not allowed to at the beginning of the month because of how busy it is during that time. I'm just going to make it :D can't wait!)
Hmm, this seems interesting. I'm not quite sure if I have the required skills, though I am pretty good at solving issues between people and coming up with a solution, and even better at organizing and analyzing situations. Perhaps I will submit something, though I am a bit fuzzy on what pertains to this job and is exactly needed. Hopefully I can find the courage as well as the right words, though, if not... well, then I do hope you'll be able to find the ponies you're looking for to fill the position. ;)

Oh hey, responses!  O: :D
Sure, shipping fics are fine! (Ironically, I have a fic, and its a ship fic... with Applejack and an oc I made up. <.<)

Ooh, that sounds cool! I'll have to check it out ^-^ its been a while since I read/written anything... but it has been on my mind, to start up again, I hope I'll find the time to soon. :)

Oh, and welcome! ^-^

Not every pony someone makes is a ponysona, though.
I have a ponysona and two OCs.
One OC is a unicorn named Mystic Mage who never grew out of the magic surge phase of infanthood. She works using her excess magic to charge and recharge enchanted items that need charging.
My other OC is a deaf earth pony named Silent Sky. She's a glass maker. I came up with the pony first, then sat around for weeks trying to figure out what her talent could be. Then, I looked at one of the glass humming birds I bought from Six Flags several years ago, and I thought "That's it!"
Neither of them is supposed to be me in the slightest, so I call them my OCs.
This is true- when I said that I had meant when everyone is actually talking about their ponysona, but just referring to it as "my oc." I myself have multiple oc characters, but I also have one ponysona. People tend to use the term oc for everything, when (imo) the correct way is "I have my ponysona, and many oc's as well." (of course, some people only have oc's, and don't have a ponysona.) I suppose I should've explained it better, my apologies. x3
Those are some cool oc's~ I like how they have some interesting talents, but also have a bit of a "flaw" as well, it shows that you can have some really awesome characters without them being perfect. My oc's are a bit like that, too- I have quite a few, so I'll just give a quick explanation of them:

Lyrical Charm: A blue Unicorn mare that absolutely loves music, and aspires strongly to one day be a DJ for a big name radio company. (a bit out of left-field for a place like Equestria, but I still like the idea anyway. x3)  Occasionally writes, makes music for and sings her own songs.

Thunder Spring: A green Pegasus mare that's always on the lookout for adventure- the longer and more risky it is, the better! Can hardly ever sit still, and is always trying to get one of her friends to go with her... but if she can't find anypony to do so, she won't hesitate to go off by herself.

Obsidian Quake: A black Earth Pony stallion, and also a demolition specialist. Although a bit reserved and quiet on the outside, once you get to know him you'll find that he has a heart to match his large build. Currently dating Strawberry Cream. Is also terrified of heights.

Strawberry Cream: A pink Pegasus mare. She loves to bake sweet treats, that she always insists are "made with love, because love is one of the most powerful magics of all!" When she's not baking you can find her practicing her flight skills, or spending time with her coltfriend, Obsidian Quake. Is also afraid of loud noises. (a bit ironic, these two that are dating and their fears XD)

Gear Spark: A brown Unicorn stallion and a genius inventor, Spark loves to build and create all kinds of new gizmos and gadgets. Sometimes he can get so immersed in his work, he'll forget to take a break and get some fresh air, or even eat at times. He has a rare muscle disease that makes him a bit weaker, but with the aid of his inventions he can do most- and in some cases even more- of what other ponies can do.

I even have a pic of them ^-^

Yay, ponysona! I'm glad you used the right term~ so many people say "my oc!" and while that isn't necessarily wrong, to me its more of an incorrect grammar type of thing. x3

That aside, my Ponysona is a Pegasus named Featherdust :) I chose a Pegasus because personally the idea of soaring through the skies is highly appealing to me. Her colors (a pink coat with a yellow and purple mane and tail), are my three favorites, and her eyes are blue like mine. Her cutie mark is a yellow feather, and instead of representing her talent, its more a symbol of her personality: kind, gentle and patient (I don't know if I'm like that, but people have said it I guess? Also I'm not really good at anything so... XDDD) I wanted my ponysona to be simple, nothing too crazy or extreme x3 she's pretty much your average Pegasus, her speed is a bit better than some, but nowhere on an RD level. She got her cutie mark after saving a baby bird once (I actually did happen to do that one time.)

Hi! Do you read or write MLP fanfics? How do you feel about talking about them? If you do any of these things, then this is the place for you! :D Let's discuss the creative stories written by the amazing members of this community! Whether it be recommending a certain story, discussing one you have read before, or even talking about an idea you have to make your own, lets do it here! ^-^ (try to keep fics pg-based, please.)

Post Merge

Well, I guess I'll start by suggesting a fanfic- if you haven't read it yet, that is x3

Past Sins, by Pen Stroke. (warning- this story is slightly dark, with a teen rating. Tags: Dark, Slice of Life, Sad)
This is by far my favorite fanfic of all time. Its just so good! Amazing plot, very well detailed, and the same characters you know and love, as well as some interesting new ones, too. I highly recommend you check it out~ its a bit of a long read, but definitely worth it. I remember staying up late night after night, just to find out what would happen next. And as I read through the comments, I found that so many others had done the same. If you're interested, feel like reading, have the time or all of the above, you should definitely check it out.

Now for those that have read it...
Spoiler: show
Nyx is best oc! She really may just be one of my favorites, such a well-written and unique character! And the struggles she had to endure... she felt so pressured by Nexus to do what he wanted- but not him, it was the curse that had infected him. What was your favorite part of the story? I'm not sure of mine... the battle scene towards the end was quite epic though. For me personally, the story was really great throughout. The sequel stories are amazing too, great follow-ups to an already wonderfully rich story. Oh, the part with the CMC and NMM was great too, I sometimes like to go back and read about that part. x3 I love the idea of "Lupus majors and minors", star beasts are really cool, and it would be awesome to see more of them in the actual show. Maybe someday, who knows. x3 Well, that's it for now... just something to get started on, if you've read this story already. :)
Alright then, if anyone has any fics to suggest, be sure to post about them here! I'm always looking to discover something new, as well as talk about fics that have been read ^-^ hope to hear from you soon! :D
