Man it's been a while! And I'm feeling truly inspired! So why don't you come on in and share some inspiration with me and the lovely folks here? Most of us don't bite!

Why is she so grumpy? :rara1:

sorry if I don't always respond on a timely manner. Sometimes my brain just get's into "I do not want to even think about writing today" modes

Being a slave for one, and having no memories before the time she was a slave, and no childhood memories which she would have if she was born a slave means that she and he sister were kidnapped and made slaves, so that makes her even angrier. In addition their first owner was very cruel to the two of them, as have other Freepeople since he got rid of them.

Is this a place for people who are undertaking writing projects, perhaps covert ones?

I'm on one right now and I have no idea what I'm doing but it's great. But I feel so solitary!


I have written 1040 words tonight

Hello everyone.

I've seen this thread around but I never had a chance to jump in and fill my curiosity.

Am I correct in that this is a thread for those of writing ilk? or may I ask what this thread is all about if my assumptions are wrong?

And I wanna post here more, but I am a derp that never writes my own stories anymore apparently, so all I can do is talk about Youtube stuffs. Durr.

i finished my first draft of my film script a few days ago. it clocks in at 148 out of 120 pages. So i clearly need to edit it down and revise it to be more concise

i'm taking a week off from it, so that way when i read it again, i'm less attached to it, and can be more objective, i think :PP

Ok so,

I haven't written it down on the calendar, but I have managed to read something every single day this month, and I got a little writing done yesterday.

Woop woop!


Nice! Youcre being really productive man, that's awesome!
Do you like doing story related things?

What kinds of things do you read?

at first i was confused, but then i remember what you are talking about

actually that's a different story, but the fact that it was Lily's birthday was an amazing coincidence!

no prob! you had no way of knowing, so that's all good

this one is about a guy who is being haunted with visions of fire demons. He tries to live his life the best he can with his conservative but loyal friend, and his trans girlfriend who has to hide her identity around town

the genre is very much in the vein of Night in the Woods, a mundane americana supernatural mystery/horror


File: 1566189362332.jpg (69.61 KB, 612x612, 1:1, lucy38.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Interesting that you are writing a conservative character. I think I'm acquainted with your sensibilities. Is that experience drawn from real life? Or how do you approach it?


File: 1566189842169.jpg (70.35 KB, 409x750, 409:750, tumblr_p0kpawS8aV1vlynvno1….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

It's mostly from real life experiences. i live in a very conservative town, and as such my friends would tend to fall into that way of being; despite me being the complete opposite in every concievable fashion.

this particular character would be like many in the town and story in his approaches to the world and towards the other characters; including the MC's girlfriend. but unlike some, he's got an ultimate view on life that would rather accommodate her than accommodate hate.

but it still creates tension, friction, and can spark flares of conflict that can burn others in its way


File: 1566190383745.gif (15.64 KB, 600x152, 75:19, lucy24.gif) ImgOps Google

Maintaining that kind of tension must require a lot of skill and sensitivity to keep it from collapsing into something like "talking points".

yeah, and i have to admit that a few spots in my first draft sorta fell into that pitfall. so my first task tomorrow is to reread and write down notes on how to improve it and make it more natural to the story.

also i need to cut out like 30 pages of content, so i'm probably going to completely restructure the entire beginning of the darn thing :PP

nah, the sauciest it gets is some hidden makeout sessions. I already have to balance the rest of the story, and unfortunately that doesn't leave a lot of time for boning

It's an MLP fanfic. It always bugged me that I never finished the other one, so I'm doing a new one with the goal of a complete story.

It's my version of the end of the show.

Sweetie Belle joins a "blackbox experimental theater" group and brings it to Ponyville. Many conversations are had.

oooh a Sweetie Belle blackbox theater show? that is cool and very unique!

why did you choose that as your particular version of the end of the show?


File: 1566192961720.jpg (41.9 KB, 684x821, 684:821, lucy2.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

It was originally just a funny idea that I had. Then, the "theater group" element become part of the plot. Then I dreamed the ending, and it was obvious how it would go. I was hesitant at first, but realized that I couldn't not do that, now that I'd seen it. And I realized that's how I'd end the show.

No one dies or anything. The show began in an episodic fashion, and somehow (I feel) it should end in the same way, but with the right kind of episode. If all goes well, it will be weird, for sure.


File: 1566193777165.png (238.83 KB, 500x646, 250:323, 6e4.png) ImgOps Google

if you ever put it up somewhere, i would like to give it a read ^^

I've been listening to a podcast on the French Revolution, and it covered pre-revolution France.

Which made me realize that I'd unknowingly written my story like a metaphor for the Three Estates and I kind of want to run with that.

I personally just use the catalogue search, then post in it whenever unless it's saged. Then I'll make a new one if Chamomile hasn't already, or whoever else feels like making one.

I try to read a variety, but it usually ends up being horror fantasy, or scifi.

The out of my usual bounds stuff has been like, Clan of the Cave Bear, Flowers in the Attic, and Green Angel. Though I suppose green angel is fantasy, so not so sure how far out of bounds that falls.


Nice, do it! Do what feels goodb worry about editing later

Don't quote me, but I think Autosage is 400 posts. After that we just make a new thread, or it'll 404 when it reaches the last page. Between Ella and myself we try not to let it 404 without reposting the thread, but on occasion we've both managed to let it slip.

This should end up being post 149 so we've got a ways to go. you may as well jump in here.

Alright, I've been putting this off long enugh but I said I'd do it so here it is.

A long long time ago after being highly disappointed with the episode Power Ponies, particularly with how boringly derivative the heroes were without making much sense for the character, I took it upon myself to try to be more creative and faithful. I had three goals in mind when creating each one.
1. They had to have powers and/or abilities that I consider creative, or at least aren't mere expies of existing characters.
2. They have to be based primarily on the mane 6, using their existing character traits and personalities as a base. Specifically, moreso than the Power Ponies.
3. Their abilities should directly counteract that of their Power Pony counterpart. They don't need to be (and shouldn't be) especially powerful individually, but they should have a huge edge in a head to head matchup.

After much writing, I finally created the Sinister Six, a team of supervillain ponies enacting heists and other criminal activity while combating their archenemies, the Power Ponies.

If anyone wants to know more about them, just ask! There are some details I'm still hoping to get some help with, but I'll just leave this here for now and see what kind of interest it draws.

>without making much sense for the character

I kinda felt like that was the point?  Like specifically they were embodying other charaters, weren't they?  They weren't supposed to be themselves.

Maybe that's its own thread, though.

Anyway, I'd totally read an info dump on superhero(villain) ponies.

Making Pinkie Pie into the Joker is like the expiest you can get, though.

Me too! Info dump, info dump!
Haha, yea but still a good fit for trying to embody her.

Though now I do wonder what else Pinkie Pie could be..


They were definitely made with the mane six in mind, like silly superhero parodies. Twilight is the one who shoots magic beams, AJ is the one with a lasso, Dash changes the weather, Pinkie is hyper, Rarity is fabulous, and Fluttershy (ugh) has anger problems.

Welllll ok~. Just keep in mind there are loads of details about each character I can't get out all at once, so if you want to know more about any in particular just ask. If it's something I haven't thought of, I'll try to come up with an answer ;)

From left to right we have...
Stickywicket! The sweets-loving prankster pony made entirely of sticky bubblegum! Using her amorphous gum body she is a master of the ridiculous, and loves to laugh at would-be speedsters who find themselves humiliatingly stuck to the ground!

Meteoryte! This hyperspeed pegasus is the most brash and cocksure pony in Maretropolis, loving the thrill of pushing her body to its limits. When she slams into the middle of a fight, an ultrasonic boom tears through the atmosphere, causing destruction all around with a huge strain on her body.

The Antimattercorn! A genius pegasus inventor with a sour disposition and a penchant for planning, she invented a head-mounted death ray that fires beams of antimatter! She leads the Sinister Six with her meticulously laid out plans, but is quick to lose her temper when they go awry.

Mesmeralda! This femme fatale prefers to keep out of fights, but provides a dazzling distraction with flashy effects and smokescreens, making it hard to tell just where she is at any time. She often plays a support role gathering information or infiltrating top secret areas, using disguises and her own charisma.

MissFortune! This highly trained ninja has no super abilities, but her quick wits and sharp reflexes make it near impossible to capture her. She's the most level-headed of the Six, and her nimble and powerful body along with her expertly honed intuition allows her to take advantage of every slight opening and misstep, making a fight with her seem like a string of bad luck.

And finally, Yellowbelly! This meek and helpless seeming mare stays out of fights, and makes sure to keep it that way! Those deep eyes of hers cause anyone who sees her to reconsider going against her, as her pitiful gaze is simply too cute to harm! She may seem harmless, but she's all too capable of taking advantage of the sympathy she sparks in others, often using it to get her way.

Ugh, where do you see the Joker? I mean, he doesn't even have any powers to work with.
