Now first, here is the fanfic I wrote myself: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/343429/guiding-light
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: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/56774/alarm-clock

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: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/39849/rites-of-ascension

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: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/153395/the-rites-encyclopedia

Oh, and Alarm Clock has some pretty great sequels, too.
"Henceforth," Ditzy continued, "you shall observe Muffin Monday on the first Thursday of every August! You shall commemorate it... with a minute of solemn silence for reflection on the fragility of life. And then, muffins!"

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! :)

Well, this thread hasn't been very active, but it's still on the first page sooooo...

I read a LOT of pony fanfiction, if I'm being honest.  Basically, every story I read (as in, words on a page) these days is a MLP fic.  I still have non-pony stories in the form of audiobooks, but even some audiobooks are MLP related.

My favourite MLP Fanfic is probably "A Voice Among the Strangers" by Tystarr and its companion novel "A Stranger Among the Voices", though the latter is incomplete.  There are a load of others I have liked a lot of course, including the ever popular Fallout: Equestria and Past Sins.

Currently I'm reading "Fallout New Vegas: Unexpected Friends".  It's set in the Mojave wasteland and has nothing to do with FoE (Aside from being a crossover with Fallout anyway).

As to writing, I started one years ago but never finished it (Bad Shadowhoof, bad!).  I've started another one, got a few chapters in, but I've been slacking.  I haven't posted any of them yet, I wanted to be well underway with several chapters of backlog saved before I started posting, good thing.

I keep telling this guy he needs to write a book, but like most of us anxiety gets the best of us soft spoken pones.

Found another really good fanfic to give you the feels a few months ago. It's called The Keepers of Discord. it takes place after Return of Harmony and acts as if Keep Calm and Flutter On never happened. it spans out across many years and is all from Discord's point of view while he is imprisoned in stone. there is also a reading of it with artwork on DRWolf001's channel
