The My Little Pony Fanfiction Guide, Part OneGreetings, viewers. Thank you for taking a long deserved break from trolling any singer looking like Justin Bieber(I got sick of the comments after my cover of that Limp Biskit song--I swear I like death metal) and sitting down to learn how to write a good fanfiction.
But of course, you came in here because either you discovered the brony fandom and want to fit in, or you're already here and want to contribute to it more than learning from example and trying to recreate another Katy Perry song into the brony sense, but chose to do the song "Peacock" and found you made a song so dirty the FBI is now monitoring what you're doing right now.
In either case, this self-help article will help you learn how to write an MLP story that will gain attention, and will finally get you a feature on Equestria Daily. Depending on how long winded I am right now, this could be either one part, or several. You'll find out when I do.
LESSON 1: LEARN THE SHOW
No matter what you're doing, the first rule of w
Trixie's New Big Red Life p 11Trixie was happier than she had ever been, since the circus everything just seemed to go her way. She used her refurnishing spell to fix the Apples' leaky roof, she found she was able to use magic on hay piles if she focused on the individual pieces, Applejack was teaching her how to buck for apples (took some getting used to), she seemed to be getting closer friendship wise to Twilight and her pony pals, but best of all she had been spending the majority of her time with Big Macintosh.
She had impressed him, not in the magical abilities department, but in the fact that she was willing to risk her life to save Apple Bloom and her friends. When he wasn't working the orchid or lending a helping hoof in Ponyville he was by Trixie's side, and she loved every minute of it.
This morning she had decided to attribute to the farm by cooking the family some grass pancakes; so far she was on her tenth attempt at making a batch that wasn't burnt. Granny Smith was there too, helping by taste testin
The My Little Pony Fanfiction Guide, Part TwoPART TWO: THE ORIGINAL CHARACTER EPISODE
Welcome back, aspiring brony writers. Now that you know the basic lessons on how to write a story that's better than whatever you wrote in kindergarden(or any of my first stories) you're on to the next step: creating original characters.
Why are we spending a part on Original Characters, or OCs? Because sometimes, you have a story that none of the show's characters fit in. For example, I have this really silly idea where a bunch of serial killers meet each other and pick at each other's flaws and guts, and clearly I'm not going to take the psycho Twilight and Pinkadema route LIKE I KNOW A LOT OF YOU DO...seriously, installing those cameras in your house was not worth it...
So sometimes you have a story that you want your own creation in and decide their personalities, and you will learn the greatest part of writing: It's the only field you can play God in and still get away with without moral consequences. After all, I decided the character I kn
