Lights in the Sky

Lights in the Sky is the story of Rising Star’s journey to find her cutie mark. As a farm filly, Rising Star tries hard to fulfill the responsibilities given to her by her older sister, Heartland. But an opportunity arises where she finds that her heart’s desire may rest outside the boundaries of the Star Fields family farm. Rising Star will be put to the test as she is forced to decide between adherence to her sister’s wishes or the yearning to follow her own dreams.

Visual novel this time.  Not something you see too terribly often in this fandom.  If you feel like checking it out, you can click the link above.

Sprocket Doggingsworth – Fallout: Equestria – The Hooves of Fate

I’ve been meaning to read Fallout: Equestria for over a year now. A friend of mine read it all in a few days, so I should be able to read it in over 12 months you’d think. Luckily, Sprocket assured me that I can read his story, The Hooves of Fate, without knowledge of Fallout: Equestria, and so I did—yet, here and there, now and then, I got the inkling that an insightful reference had just slipped me by.

But his story promises much more than just references, it is set to lay a new foundation for the magnum opus, one veiled in the distant past otherwise known and our present, where Rose Petal just earned her cutie mark.

A young filly in present day Ponyville is cursed with nightmares of post-apocalyptic Equestria. She finds herself influencing the course of future history in ways that nopony notices, and that she herself cannot understand. Without her seemingly minor contributions, many of the events depicted in Fallout: Equestria (by Kkat) would not be possible.

She must learn to balance her life at home with her life on the other side of the veil, and fight to preserve her own sanity, and her own innocence. She discovers that such a task is only possible through the magic of friendship.

Head over to FiM Fiction to read it.

Update 2013-04-01 14:00Z: Hear ye, hear ye! The second chapter is out! (And no, no April fools’, I’m just a few days slow.)

Update 2013-04-29 18:00Z: The third chapter is up, A Horse With No Name! Rose Petal finally confides into someone and sees a mysterious green book.

Update 2013-06-27 19:00Z: A few days ago, Sprocket published the fourth chapter, and yesterday I finally had time to read it. It is longer than the previous chapters, action packed, and ends with what feels like more of a cliffhanger than the previous chapters. Definitely a great read!

New Semi-Regular Segment: Featured Fanfics!

Hello, all!

My name is A.W.O.N. and I have been recruited to teach you all the magic of fanfiction! I’m sure most of you know it already, but I’ll be featuring fics that I think are stellar, either in writing, concept, or execution. I hope you all will bear with me, as I am new at the whole “contributor” thing, but I look forward to sharing my favorite part of the fandom with you!

Thanks for your time!

Fanfiction Documentary in the Works

Thanks for the reminder; the announcement got stuck in the todo folder for too long.

They don’t need any monetary donations, but music and art contributions as well as suggestions are very welcome.

Good luck!

Good day fellow Equestria Thespians,

We are proud to announce a MLP:FiM fan fiction focused documentary to be released at no cost this summer. Our team is small and we are still in the process of finalizing guests such as well known and lesser known authors, mods, cover artists, reviewers, and more with a run time of a full 40-45 minutes consisting of 7-8 guests.

Why are we doing this???

Fimfiction.net by itself is the second most popular fanfiction site in the world (according to http://www.webstatsdomain.com/) and it even gives EQD a run for its money on visits with both being around the 25,000th most popular site on the web. Yet despite its popularity MLP:FiM fanfiction is often overlooked by news organizations, conventions, and documentaries. Unlike music you can’t play a 20 second clip, or have something going in the background. You can’t put it up on the screen for a moment like a picture or a clip from an animation or PMV and expect the audience to “get it” or feel connected to the art. Thus the idea for a reasonable length exploration has taken shape in the form of a documentary.

We want to both honor 4th gen MLP fanfiction and give back to the fanfiction community. We realize the difficulties and have standards that we will adhere to. In fact we want feedback and community involvement to make sure that we can do just that. We will be looking for donations/suggestions for cover art, music (original and new) and guests. NO, we don’t need any money.

Our main point of contact will be through the fimfiction group

Carwyn Williams – The Oncoming Storm

Here’s another story for you! Just as our previous one, The Oncoming Storm is complete, with 13 chapters and a prologue.

Famine grips the world. Celestia has no choice but to take what the citizens of Equestria need to survive from other countries by force. She forms the Solar Empire. Whirlwind, a Pegasus from Cloudsdale and old friend of Rainbow Dash, decides to join the Solar Empire Air Force alongside Rainbow to fight for their country, friends and families.

But all does not go well. Whirlwind, now branded a traitor to the Empire and Equestria, finds himself on the run even though he was only following orders. Can he outrun the biggest and most powerful empire in the world’s history, can he live with himself after what he had to do to his best and only friend and can he restore peace back to the world?

D4ftP0ny – The Stars of Darkness

Unlike several fanfics that we’ve posted earlier, The Stars of Darkness is complete, with 21 chapters and an epilogue.

I have only just read the first chapter today, and yet I feel that D4ftP0ny has already laid the foundation for a number of intriguing conflicts that beckon me from the later chapters. It is also impressive how the story manages to magically weave itself into the fabric of the canon. You’ll see what I mean by that.

Luna’s life since her return to the world has been more than she could have hoped for; her sister welcomed her back with open hooves and has done everything in her power to make Luna happy.  On top of that, the Moon Princess has even made some friends in Twilight Sparkle and the ponies from Ponyville.  Luna is the happiest she’s been in a very long time, and she can’t help but hope that her life has seen the end of its trials.

However… not all remnants of the past are willing to stay there.

One night, high in the mountain capital of Canterlot, Princess Luna is confronted by four ponies who all share a very deep connection to her; and the past that Luna thought was buried forever is suddenly unearthed and threatens not only her new life, but also the lives of Twilight Sparkle and her friends, as well as that of Princess Celestia.

Hatred has come to Equestria, and its power may be more than even the magic of Friendship can endure.

Sequel Stories:

“Of Thistles and Honey”

“The Chronicles of Dark Star: A Blade of Redemption”

Squeak Anon – When New Was New

Squeak Anon’s story When New Was New has been turned into an audio book by Pony in a Box Productions, sometimes also referred to as “Ponyinabox.” You can find the story on FiMFiction and the audio rendition after the break.

In the beginning when there was nothing, the Universe was alone. There was darkness in every direction, and this left her with no one to talk to. There was no sky, or ground or cups of tea, or in fact even a planet on which to have any of those things, just the emptiness of the void.
The Universe was lonely.

Staring:
Wollffey as The Universe
DJ Calcos as Narrator
The Fangirl as The First Pony
Credits read by Sithking Zero

Music and video editing by Ordon Rift
Written and directed by Squeak

Hydraex2 – At the End of All Things

At the End Of All Things by Endingtheworld

At the End Of All Things by Endingtheworld

Its first and final chapter counting a little under 3000 words, At the End of All Things is a story you could read while making dinner, but having just read it, I advise against it lest your meal get a little too salty.

It’s been centuries since the end of the show, and over time Equestria has fallen prey to natural global warming. Eventually all life perished except for Twilight Sparkle, who survived because she was a powerful alicorn.

Over time, she forgot who she was. Now she has returned to the ruins of Ponyville, where powerful memories resurface.
