    RE: It's Always Sunny in Fillydelphia Fanart
    If it isn't specifically made fanart, it's an AMAZING coincidence. Either way, I'm happy. The proportions seem off, but I'm floored I got fanart at all.

    I'm mostly interested in seeing how an idea I've had will play out. I sometimes imagine scenes involving characters. I'm curious about the events leading up to these scenes and writing is my way of finding out.

    Okay, I've come down with "I can do better than that." Syndrome, although I'm not really sure I can.

    I read a shipping fic involving Fluttershy and Spitfire, and was wondering how to write the two in my own fanfiction. I totally expect it to suck, or that I won't be able to finish it, but I'd like to try anyway, because this fic....the interpretation of Fluttershy seemed really off to me, and Spitfire was a slut to put it lightly.

    I should mention for Phoe's sake that I still consider FlutterDash canon.

    I only know one story with that particular pairing, and it doesn't match the description I'm hearing. Now I'm morbidly curious. Also, vain. Have some me:

    I can't remember the name of the fic. It involved Spitfire coming to hang out with Rainbow Dash, only finding Fluttershy, and eventually helping her get Froggy Bottom Pond to an acceptable level for the animals. At the end, after getting far too infatuated with Spitfire in what seemed like far too short a time, Fluttershy finds out that Spitfire likes Rainbow Dash, goes berserk, and sexually assaults Spitfire.


    Maybe it was just me, but I didn't find it believable.

    I might have gone crazy... It's a fun feeling. Bloody Ponies.

    These fics sound quite.... interesting, though. O.o if that's the right word for "CANNOT UNSEE CANNOT UNSEE"...

    Thats dedication.

    Attention.
    The very novel idea of ponies in my fic.
    Twilight Sparkle is the best pony.

    In that order.

    Now to resume that Lyra-insanity fic. Probably will just find a way to include most ponies in this thread.

    My motivation is that I want to be a writer, like, the kind of writer that gets his own shelf at Barnes and Noble, and writing Ponyfic is a way of actually starting and finishing short stories, while I can't seem to finish my original fiction. So, I guess you could say it's for practice.

    As for why I write one story and don't write another, it's because my muse is erratic and fey. I have to have a concept that's capable of being expressed in one scene, or a very strong concept plus a plot that I think I could write tied along with it. Bright New Days and All Hallow's Night were examples of the former (The boundaries between continuities are collapsing, and Twilight's going insane! Rainbow Dash has been chosen to run from the Wild Hunt!), while Misted Stage and Heroics were the latter (I want to write a story where the story of Aladdin is told within the story of Aladdin within the story of Aladdin. I want to write a story where Shimmer Snowflake learns to live with her curse of bondage, and to be brave instead of timid.). So it's a combination of all three you mentioned above, I guess, though I mostly use the "picture in my head" thing for plotting and when I'm actually doing the writing, not as motivation for writing.

    Fortunately, I am not one them! Pansies. Evil by choice, not by design! Best sort of Evil really, because I'm not misguided, mislead or tragic and I damn well do know better, I just choose to do what I do anyway, out of sheer spite. And Awesome. It's much more fun to be fully cognisent of the horrors you're inflicting and then still keep doing it.

    (Y'know, when not watching ponies.)

    Interesting question. Like just about anypony else has said, it's a combination of things for me:

    1) Creative exercise. I'm hoping to become a game designer at some point, so writing is a good way to keep my creative thinking and imagination sharp. I guess you could also say that, kinda like what Phoe said, writing, or just creating in general, is something I feel like I have to do. It's a part of me I have to feed and maintain, and writing is one way I do it.

    2) I find ponies oddly inspiring. Maybe it's the sheer innocence of the universe, maybe it's the community, or maybe it's a mix of a bunch of different things. Either way, ponies keep my imagination churning like nopony's business*, and that helps me to write.

    3) Desire for attention. Yeah, not gonna lie, that's a part of it. Coupled with that is the encouragement and positive attitude of the community. That certainly doesn't hurt.

    4) As for why I write what I write, so far it's all been from getting a single, crazy idea, and then crafting a story to show others that idea.

    Feels weird saying all this when I haven't even posted part 1 of the fic I'm working on, but it is what it is.

    *I'm not joking, this stuff is like steroids for my imagination. Since diving into ponies, I've been able to hold three-way conversations with myself. So either it's helping my imagination, or driving me crazy. Your choice.
    I'm developing a game. Let's see what happens! Complex.

    I've always had the problem of getting specific images stuck in my head, but then having difficulty expressing them. Writing is the medium I feel like I have a passing shot at actually conveying something with, and the thriving pony community has encouraged me to actually go out on a limb and try it.

    Also, I'm trying to write to encourage some creativity in myself and become a bit less one-dimensional...

    So I've been seeing these pony avatars on the board for a little while now. At first I thought it was just an avatar theme week, but they kept sticking around, and getting more prevalent. Average Joe's switch was especially noticed, as well as these pony threads being near the top of the media forum. I never gave it much of a thought though. Surely it wouldn't be a show that I would like. But then I saw Sohmer's pony avatar on least I could do, and something compelled me.

    I was compelled to watch the first episode yesterday. Which compelled me to watch the second. Which compelled me to watch the third. Which compelled me to watch the fourth.
    I don't know why I like it, I don't know why I think it's brilliant, but it's reached some sort of entertainment balance that, I like it. I like it a lot.

    I am a brony.

    I was compelled to watch the first episode yesterday. Which compelled me to watch the second. Which compelled me to watch the third. Which compelled me to watch the fourth.
    I don't know why I like it, I don't know why I think it's brilliant, but it's reached some sort of entertainment balance that, I like it. I like it a lot.
