Cupcakes all over again. Pretty bad, but it’s not awful.

Cupcakes has left a stain so deep in our brains that no amount of bleach will rid us of this scourge.

I seem to be the only person who didn’t think Cupcakes was that bad.
Maybe my mental capacity is too low to understand it?

It goes like this: Humanity, the cosmo, and god is at the omega point and when they verge into one living being it becomes 2 and BAM luna and celestia was created and they decided to make Equestia and for fun put a line of pinkie pie saying “And thats how Equestria was made” at the end of it for shits and giggles. just a idea for a fanfic in theory of how there universe was made :l

On the topic of fanfiction,

I wanted to write a Cupcakes alternate ending so Dashie doesn’t die, but it wouldn’t be one to make it all better so you can forget about it.
I think everypony should read Cupcakes to strengthen their resolve.

As to shipping, it’s enjoyable if written well. I only like mane 6 shipping if it’s for comedic purposes.

What is this “Rainbow Factory”?

The clopfics that are more extreme shipping more than, you know… stuff, are okay. The short not disgusting copypasta ones are okay. But some of them are just bleh.

I enjoy Pinkamina shipping because it’s so, just, durrrrrr…

I didn’t think it was that bad either. It was undoubtedly one of the most messed up fan fictions I’ve ever read, but I got through it in one piece.

Rainbow Factory is…

go Google it. Talking too much about it would spoil it.

Er, fair warning: it’s a grimdark.

Can somepony summarize it for me. I read the last paragraph and I can guess what happened.

I can’t stand it. It’s nonsensical, inappropriate, and makes the brony community look like foreveralones… most of the time. I’ll admit some of it can actually make for good story development so long as it keeps to this code.

+ No mane 6 characters… period.
+ No gay/lesbian parings (not that I have a problem with homosexuality, but it’s HIGHLY inappropriate for this setting)
+ No dirty stuff, no sex (obviously), no sensual kissing, no innuendo, none of that mess.

I think that’s all, for example I like the idea of Applebloom having a crush on Spike, or Braeburn and Little Strong Heart falling for eachother. But most of the stuff pumped out by the internet fanfic machine is just insulting to the show and it’s creators.

I actually don’t read much fanfiction, so I don’t really have an opinion on it. Now, shipping in art on the other hand I can say I like. And I don’t even mean the clop art. Some of the ships are really sweet, and the Lyra/Bon Bon one always makes me smile.

Nothing bad, but the shipping fic I linked to was Trixie/Fluttershy, so that already broke the mane 6 and no F/F rule he posted.

…It’s called fanfiction for a reason. I’m not a fan of shipping, but still. It’s just a story, that a FAN wrote.

Just wondering, who made you fan fiction ruler all of a sudden? Besides, Algernon posted a link to a fic that still broke 2 of your rules.

Although I’m sure the current topic is one of great merit, I just thought I’d pop in to say I went to a Target today to look for a b-day gift for my five year old cousin and I couldn’t help but notice they didn’t have a single MLP toy. How disappointing.

As far as fanfics go though, I can’t say I’m really a fanfic kind of guy. Anything that uses already established characters, etc. really gets on my nerves for some reason. I’m okay with stuff involving background characters and the like though.

I think I’ve found your worst nightmare: Luna’s Socks
It’s a shipping fic that:

  • Involves a mane 6 character, Twilight
  • Involves lesbianism
  • Gets pretty… ‘intense’, for lack of a better word (It’s a borderline clopfiction).
  • Involves your favouritest pony of all time – Luna!

Enjoy

NO ARGUING! Especially over something so trivial as fanfics. Don’t force your opinions on others, I’m not saying that that is going on right now, but for the future…

I drew Dash’s head from a picture online once (you can see it in my photos in my profile); this one I modeled on the pegasus Dr. Whoof, Vinyl Scratch, some pegasus with folded wings, and from my imagination.

Intresting, especally the Cupcakes thing since most people hate that for obvious reasons.

Rules? I never said those where rules people HAD to follow, I couldn’t stop them if I wanted to anyway. That’s just my personal code, if it breaks those then I’m not interested.

I’m allowed to state my opinion, that doesn’t mean I’m telling people what to do.

No, but when you freak out over such thing like some author pairing Trixie and Fluttershy together, it kinda gets irritating after a while.

As much as I would like to stay and participate, I must be off now. I’m not sure why, but my computer hates these forums and does its best to slow me down when I’m on here. I’ll lurk some later if I get bored. :p
