Hearts of Red Ink: The Sequeling 569[Last 50 Posts]

#Planning #Oh God Not This Again

With the divorcing of /fic/ from Ponychan, I thought it time to consummate the community's new-found relationship with a sequel to the seminal reviewer meta-fic Hearts of Red Ink.

What is Hearts of Red Ink (or HoRI, as it is commonly abbreviated to), you ask? Well, it was story that starred several key figures of /fic/'s populace at the time. In it, a mysterious and malicious (for most, if not all…) force began to gender-bend the denizens of /fic/ and filled them with the insatiable urge to commit acts of an unspeakable nature. Of course, it was merely unspeakable and the story's author had no trouble putting it to print. Amazingly, despite the rather obvious allusions and questionable content, it was not removed by the moderators and proceeded to a rather messy climax that, nonetheless, resulted in the crisis passing and leaving (most of) the afflicted with only bad memories and sore unmentionables. At the end, the author was so distraught by the abomination his accursed hands had wrought that he made every effort to purge its putrid filth from existence. Alas, this being the internet, a few copies still linger, much like recordings of the Star Wars Christmas Special or the smell of last week's tuna casserole.

This thread is merely the foreplay, though. Considering the nature of the story, seeing as it uses other peoples' personas, it requires willing participants and, as such, is entirely opt-in. The story itself is all in good jest but be forewarned; there will be subject matter that may not agree with you. Alas, all I can offer is this vague warning since most of the fun comes from not knowing what unfortunate fate your avatar (or others') will suffer in the story's proceedings. As a general rule, if it was featured in a thread on old /fic/, it will make its way here.

For those of you that wish to partake in this sordid spectacle, I will require the following:
Your express permission, as posted on this thread.
A description of your character's disposition, attitude, quirks ect (if you want me to strive for accuracy, at least).
A description of your character's appearance or, preferably, a picture. Even an OC maker image will do.
If you have any particular limitations in regards to your character you must state them here (IE no sexual intercourse of any kind). In a similar vein, if you want a particular event to occur it may be requested, but know that there is no guarantee of it being executed to your exact specifications.

The story itself, when made, will be posted in a NSFW thread. This will require any viewers to enable NSFW thread viewing, obviously.

I eagerly await your consensual agreement.

Are we to submit characters or self-inserts?

Is there a threshold below which one would fall into the category of "nopony cares about you, why are you volunteering here?"

What's the point of this if we're allowed to declare "but under no circumstances am 'I' to do xxx in the story"?

571

If I'm to understand correctly, this is still pony-related in that the character's are OC's, but simply of the individual members who are a part of the board?

So they're ponies, but basically are ponies of the community?

Eustatian!Wings60m9. 573

>>570

> characters / SIs


Last one was a self-insert roleplay thing with really cheezy clop.

IIRC, Kim and Jordan ended up in simultaneous possession of a filly-fied Vimbert and something called the Super Colt Driller XL 3000 or somesuch. It was both hilarious and very bannable. I will be participating once I write up a suitable introduction scene for my SI - hopefully this week

> nopony cares


The author of Homestuck ran a Kickstarter recently. One perk was inclusion of one's OC in canon. The next perk up was inclusion without being killed off in the next panel. I don't think this will be a problem.

Just, everypony should be aware that flankhurt is par for the course.

(( I think we should do another one later, once we're integrated with mlpchan natives. ))

> if we're allowed to declare…

c.f. "negotiation, BDSM"
I'm sure the author(s) will have plenty of fun even with limits.

574

>>571
More-or-less.

I'm okay with this. But I'm not gonna help with it. I like surprises.

This again? Hah, I remember reading through the old thread of this one time. Wish I'd been there. Count me in; you have my express permission.
Pic is my ponysona, and if you'd like a background I am prepared to procure one.

577

>>576
Most agreeable! I was hoping you'd join in because you're one of my "ironic fate" scenarios. The majority of the participants will be at the mercy of a dice vs. a sheet of exotic fetishes but you'll be one of the lucky(?) few that are getting… preferential treatment. Enjoy your stewing as you ponder what's in store!

I don't need a background, just an overview of the character. Personality, likes/dislikes, that sort of thing.

>>574
So you're fine with being included in the story? I'm afraid your answer is a little ambiguous in that regard.

>>573
Clop? Please. My mind is far too deranged for something as simple-minded as straight clop. Borrinnnggg. The original was ham-fisted (and involved fisting of the ham). I intend to play with people's minds a little more this time around.

>c.f. "negotiation, BDSM"

Apologies, are these requests or limits? Also, what does "c.f." stand for? For that matter, "negotiation"? Do you fear being locked in a room with a bunch of politicians discussing the finer points of the lunch schedule and how the vegans must be catered for, lest there be mass protests with lots of vegetables being flung at riot officers?

>>570
Self-Inserts.

If you're active in the /fic/ community, you're in. Being "active" begins whenever you first post.

>What's the point of this if we're allowed to declare "but under no circumstances am 'I' to do xxx in the story"?

I do not want to alienate anyone unduly. I'm hoping people's spirit of adventure and lust of the unknown overcomes any hesitation they might have. Besides, I have many options to choose from. Eliminating all of them would take some work on the person's part and, if they do actually bother to do so, I'll find some sort of loophole to take advantage of.

>>571
Yes, unless your character isn't a pony. Filler was a bear, for example, and Kurbz (I think) was a sea pony. He got pushed around in a ball filled with water and engaged in underwater intercourse.

Tactical!fRainBOoMw 578

I would like to offer my explicit permission. I hope I don't fall into the "nopony cares, you last for one panel" category. I probably don't, I guess.

You could equally use Ardor or Tactical as a name.

S/he is a complete libertine and has no understanding of the concept of social inhibitions. S/he is articulate and outspoken, and has a bit of an aggressive edge.

The character is… I don't have an appearance for him/her. In my mind, being all wild like this implies pegasus. I'll figure out colors eventually.

Not only do I have no limits, I want the character to be involved in as much depraved bullshit as possible, especially the sexual kind, hopefully several times. Even if it's just in the context of making a point of it being perfectly acceptable and something that everypony should be okay with.

As the subject matter expert, you're thinking of Grif. Grif was the seapony. Kurbz was drunkenly assaulted by Minty who thought he was another Anon. Ion had his horn/megaphone Nicole. Kim ran around with several of the reviewers after getting gender-bent. I played a Pepe-le-Pew character going after Vimbert and we did very unspeakable things. Fun fact: I was the only pony who got gender-bent "off screen". Sadly, I don't have a copy of the original for a complete reference.

ANYWAY! The juicy bits! Count me in. If you have read the original HoRI, I'm pretty much like that.

There's still time before writing actually begins. Feel free to use the OC maker in the meantime.

Depraved, often. Got it.

>>579
Can do. Think you could give me some more info on how you want to make your appearance?

>>580
I'll see what I can do. This cactus on my desk has been looking rather lonely…
Any specifics you wish to supply on your character?

>>581
Ahh, many thanks.
Didn't Minty also get some with Ion after he got R63'd and there was a child or something? I remember it being a running joke that he's not the father.

I have read the original but most of the details have escaped me during the interim.

Speaking of the original, does anyone have the Emails of the old crew? Might try inviting a few of them to the party if they still stalk the internets.

583

>>581
It is on FiMFiction, posted before the "no circle jerking" rule.

Uhm… I'm in. I just need to find my ponysona picture…
Background? Esoteric, speaking in weird mannerisms all the time, ramping up this behavior as others point it out (especially in derision). Prone to lying (just like the real me!).

Requests?
Space-suit rewire/hacking leading into awkward bondage.

MalevolentSpoon!Rocket 585

Another thing, you'll need this:

My cutie mark is as follows:

A red heart with a pair of cyan pony heads (No definig facial features except a pair of closed eyes. I. E. no nostrils and such)over it, the ponies' muzzles just shy of kissing.

586

>>582
Possibly. I don't really recall the other story lines too well. (I was too giddy reading how I abused vimbert)

Emails? Not off the top of my head. I can tell you now that Kim won't want in. Some of them hang around in the IRC channel. Might be a good place to start.

>>583
No, it's not. vimbert deleted the story ages ago.

Why does he have a fedora? Something about being 'bald' doesn't look right.
[?]His cutie mark, underneath the weird insignia, is actually just a cane. Like, that of a shepherd's. Pink coat, black mane (helmet hair, assuming we'd be getting under the suit at any point). Basso profoundo in the suit, gruff but somewhat high out.[?]

Hello, I'm just some pony. During the last time that this…event…happened, I was doing a lot of work behind the scenes in the /fic/ metropolis. Amazingly, by laying low and continuing in business as usual, I went unnoticed and was spared from the worst of that lascivious outbreak — though sadly, its aftermath caused some trouble and difficulty for my work. Nevertheless, I've gained some notoriety since then, and thus I believe it's only fitting that I chime in and express where I stand.

> Your express permission, as posted on this thread.

Okay, you have it, but don't call me by the name of that guy who used to use pictures of me when he posted. I am Sum Pony. Anyone who has spent enough time in The Training Grounds will know who I am.

> A description of your character's disposition, attitude, quirks ect (if you want me to strive for accuracy, at least).

I'm obsessive-compulsive in regard to organization and preservation of data (an information packrat, if you will). I'm interested in a lot of boring things (like math and algorithms) that not very many other ponies are interested in. Think White & Nerdy. I imagine I'd be sort of like Glenn from The Walking Dead if I were casually offered sex, only worse. I'd botch every attempt at being romantic, say all the wrong words, and generally make an awkward mess of everything.

> A description of your character's appearance or, preferably, a picture. Even an OC maker image will do.

Well, here I am.

> If you have any particular limitations in regards to your character you must state them here (IE no sexual intercourse of any kind). In a similar vein, if you want a particular event to occur it may be requested, but know that there is no guarantee of it being executed to your exact specifications.

I really wish I didn't have to answer this question. No acts of any sort that involve the anus(es) of any ponies.

Now, I just want to ask something: Who's writing this? Do you trust this person as an author to write a meta-troll-clop fic starring YOU? Does Vimbert know? Is he okay with this?

Just a little food for thought before you guys join in on this.

MalevolentSpoon 602

Vimbert hated HoRI. A lot of ponies do. Ironically, they're the ones who chose not to be in it…

> Ironically


Irony is when something happens that just doesn't quite fit with the given circumstances.

I.E. Wearing galoshes when it's sunny and dry out.

I just see a lot of people jumping on the boat, and it makes me wonder if they truly remember the original HoRI, or do they just remember the sex and genderbending?

605

>>604
I remember the icky lulz, which I fully intend to one-up with my own brand of style.

I'd like to post this to FimFiction in the end, maybe even turn this thread into one of those "Pony Simulator Thread" videos on youtube, but I won't do so unless the other participants are okay with it.

If you really need to know whether you can trust me, get the admin to look at my IP so that he knows who it is. He'll vouch for my trustworthiness.

>>603
Except the Samurai and perhaps his editors.

>>602
I only really remember Nick really not liking it and he's gone now. Vimbert's reaction was a classic "What have I wrought?", so not entirely unprecedented. For all I know I'll end up the same way when I take a step back and look at the unholy monstrosity I will have birthed from the loins of my profane imagination.

> Personality, likes/dislikes, that sort of thing.
Personality
Shy to new ponies, but becomes playful and energetic towards long time friends, or when by herself. Rash, spontaneous, naive.
Likes
*Rain. She finds great beauty in the rain, and will make every excuse to create it.
*Flying. She is quite athletic, and when she's not collecting rainclouds, she's enjoying midair acrobatics. Strangely enough, though, she is not competitive or ambitious about it like Rainbow Dash; she simply enjoys the feeling of freedom it provides, and has an appreciation for beauty.
Dislikes
*Dishonesty and/or betrayal. There is no faster way to make her your enemy
*Unicorns. Most unicorns she's met are too rich-and-snooty. She doesn't trust them either.

Oh, and I give you free range to do whatever you like with her; anything goes.

Trust? Where does trust come into it? Are we not knowingly asking someone to write the most horrible thing possible, made intentionally more horrible by the involvement of characters who represent community members?

Other stuff while I'm here. In case you don't know me (I assume you're putting on a pseudonym, unless I'm well and truly *clueless*) the IRC folks can be a reference.

Oh crap, no, I know what specific request I have apart from (still important) "have the character gleefully participate in horrifying stuff and be convinced the whole time that it's perfectly okay and anypony who's shocked by it is just a damn prude." There must be a futa scene, as an homage to my favorite fic and author.

I'm sorry, but trust is a big factor. I've often found that when one tries to make something intentionally horrible, it often backfires. It turns from Horrible: I signed up for this and got some chuckles from it to Horrible: Oh god… what went wrong?

Making a comedy out of horribleness is tricky business and it's your name in the story.

I want to have something solid to trust rather than someone's word that "they can do this."

I wasn't intending to. But given what HoRI is, the lack of questions regarding the writer is rather disturbing. All I see is people asking the things about how the particulars are going to work.

Again, I'm rather skeptical of a thread that just pops up saying "Hey, I'm writing HoRI 2. Who wants in?"

>>615

Again… delicate subject matter. I can see this going up in flames really fast.

I love you, man, but this is the kind of thing where I'm not sure Jinx would approve, so without his go-ahead let's not have a story about introducing Mark III's to the /fic/ folks as entertaining as it would be.



Today is your lucky day, you aspiring author, you, because you've brought a couple stories to the Training Grounds before and they've all failed pretty badly, but this one is going to be different. Not that you know that yet; you're sweating in your horseshoes, particularly when you see who your reviewer is this time.

It's that pony again, that blue dickhead buck with the petite figure and long, shiny, flowing, can-it-get-any-more-gay mane and tail. You'd take him for a mare if his butt weren't so scrawny. Since you're a proud fic-writer and such things matter to you, you'd describe his coat as the deep, deep blue of the zenith of a cloudless sky. His mane is buff blond, white except where it is thick and shades itself; there it takes on an orangy-yellow cast. His eyes are deep chocolate brown, nearly black - except if you were to take out an ophthalmologist's slit-lamp, you'd see that they're actually a rich honeyed amber. You're not his ophthalmologist, however, or anypony to him except the author whose genius he refuses to appreciate.

Speaking of ophthalmology, he has a pair of glasses, square, narrow half-frames currently perched between his horn - which, for once, is proportioned for a stallion. He's reading your manuscript and finishes making notations on the last page with a flourish. His cutie mark is a blank scroll emblazoned with a quill - except that the vane of the quill is not pigmented keratin but a cold blue tongue of flame. Likewise, the magic with which he holds his physical quill has a peculiar flickering quality, much like fire.

The first story you brought here, your life's pride, the story that earned you so many followers on FiMFiction, languished in the queue for over a week before this guy, Eustatian Wings, picked it up. He took only half a day to read it and offered this comment:

So I read 20k words, decided I was bored and read another 20k before I became bored enough to write this. I cannot speak for the remaining 15k words, but since you've lost the part of your audience that has a pulse and critical taste long before that point, I think I can give a fair assessment.

Story is what happens when somepony I care about faces problems that are difficult to solve. This could be something as simple as needing a drink of water, if you make it big and dramatic enough. But at this point, I can't figure out who I'm supposed to care about. It's just one fuzzy-happy saccharine thing after another, filled out with world-building infodumps that *really* bore me.

Maybe you could try a short story instead?


Well, buck him. You went and did that, just to prove you can, and now the bastard went and claimed that, too. It's almost enough to make you scream.

He finally notices you, smiles wickedly, and says, "Holy shit, man! Who are you and when did you learn to write?"

unicorn stallion, 25-ish in human terms of maturity

ultramarine blue coat, buff-blond mane, brown eyes
parchment with feather quill, the vane is a blue flame

Born in Cloudsdale. Rather good at the cloud-walk spell by necessity. No fear of heights.

Suffers from "tribe disphoria" - wishes he were a pegasus, and has a bit of a *complicated thing* for them.

Employed at an airship building-ways in Hoofington. He likes his blue-collar job more than one would expect - his thick skin and ribald sense of humor go a long way there, but often make him direct and unsympathetic.

Special talent appears to be mediating written communication of a technical nature - that's what he puts on his resume. Truth is, he got his cutie mark ghost-writing other ponies' school papers, then dropped out.

Personality type: INFP, but nerdy and technically inclined enough to pass as INTP. In pony terms: Luna, but more of a drama queen a la Rarity. Enjoys manipulating others like a twisted version of Hearts and Hooves Sweetie, particularly when he believes it's for ponies own good. Likely to take both sides of an argument for the hell of it.

Quirks: Paces. A lot. Even more so when engaged in intellectual activity. Sleeps long hours and gets cranky when that sleep is interrupted.

Sexuality: Rather reserved, low libido, self-identifies as demisexual with a preference for mares. Tender and utterly incapable of degrading others as sexual play - and hates being degraded - but will at least consider anything else and do a good portion of it. Likes cuddles, wing-play, and light bondage.



Yeah, that should about do it.

Oh yes: I can use this OC as the appearance.

S/he has cybernetic implants that could theoretically give him/her the edge in a fight or whatever, but in practice s/he uses them to parkour around doing the pegasus equivalent of joyriding. Also, cybereyes with wi-fi connection for Flankbooking on the go. Dark, lustrous coat as pictured, yellowish beetle-shell stripe in the mane.

Hey guys what's going on in this—

Well, fuck. I suppose I'm obligated to join in, though. On the subject of limitations, I don't particularly enjoy clop, so maybe avoid erotic scenes or something? Kinda flies in the face of this entire project, I know.

Do you honestly think any of the original HoRI volunteers trusted the Madman? Fun fact: The Madman was originally my name for the author before he went by DieGoths.

Half of the fun is not knowing, and given the number of ponies lining up to be a part of this, I think that the fact that we don't know who the author is says a lot about how fun the mystery is.

>>639
I don't know if he does privately or not, but that wasn't important to HoRI. What ponies seem to forget is that despite the fact that it was heavily, heavily alluded to, there was no actual graphic sex in the story. It all happened off screen.

For what it's worth (which probably ain't much) I think you're a whole bunch more ashamed of the story than you should be. It was ribald as all fuck, danced back and forth across the line of good taste, both satirizing terrible fic and being terrible itself - the best way to sum up what it was would be to compare it to a brilliant stand-up comedian's 18+ show.

I greatly enjoyed it, and while I took nothing at face value it was a fantastic introduction to the culture of /fic/.

But if you hate it this much, I guess there goes my dream of a full-cast dramatic reading. Was just a fantasy, but such a shame to see the last of it burn.



Incidentally, /B/read and folks, if there will be a dramatic reading of this thing I will willingly voice myself saying anything short of really vicious hate speech. It may help to know that I'm a baritone, speak towards the top of my vocal range, and hail from the Northeast, somewhat like Ira Glass but neither as famous nor as confident.

Y'all have my official permission to do your worst with me ;) that may be 'in character' or some ridiculous mockery- anything goes. Consider me to be just like the Applejack that appears in the 'Trixie's Magic Bit' series (terrifyingly, that's kind of true!)- unless it's more fun to violate that in some way. Such as making Applejinx 'I'm a filly and what is this', and a fretful virgin :D
I don't often offer line editing, but I think I can fit in the time for a little assistance of that nature to help th' cause. So those who dare to venture into this fic MIGHT get themselves personally subjected to a good hard Applejinxing (albeit not the way they'd think, I bet- let's place that off the table entirely- no servicing of volunteers by the Trixie AJ- I'm warming to the 'I'm a filly and what is this' version)
If fic-doctorin' isn't a thing here, then just run with it. Here's an idea- Applejinx is much sought after for the futa thing and pursued for that mary-sue, sexy Applejack hose-slingin' mojo.
Except it all goes horribly wrong because she is a recluse who just writes clop endlessly, and is a tiny filly who cannot fit a stallion.
And is an alicorn.
And black.
Because she is Nyx XD

To be fair, I too would be disappointed by porn-sans-plot. But, no, (and this is strictly my opinion) ribald humor doesn't get to ride the moral high horse. Cloppiness and cloppability are two very different axes.

> Consider me to be just like the Applejack that appears in the 'Trixie's Magic Bit' series


Difficult for our intrepid author without reading at least the first one. Trixie!AJ is quite the character.

>I'm warming to the 'I'm a filly and what is this' version


Which, if played by somepony without your level of discretion, could quite easily violate site rules, tagged or no. Just saying.

>Because she is Nyx


Ah. Me gusta.

Though if I were writing this, 'Jinx would end up a multi-pony shape-shifter. Hard working, hospitable, kind to noobs, keeps above the fray. As Fluttershy. Watching. With an adorable blush and well-placed hoof.

And then Dashie happens. Or Pinkie. Or Trixie. Or - oh hell… Twilight, or Rarity, or Luna, and then we are all well and truly doomed.

As long as I get shipped, I don't care how long it takes. Though, I'd like to see /something/ by the end of January.

Incidentally, Mr. /B/read Leader, do you ever pop by #fic? That's the chatroom where you'll find most of us, just hanging around and talking, being ourselves. Sure, a lot of us can be caught in threads around /fic/, but there are a couple ponies on the list that you'd do better with seeing chat in real-time.

1097

>>1096
I think I can manage something by January.

If I did, my IP would be recognized. Perhaps a Gdocs with open editing would suffice for chatter about the story? Besides, the IRC is SFW, and there's no telling what could get tossed around when it comes to this sort of stuff…

is an incorrect statement.

There is an easy way around it - Canternet provides a virtual host service. If you have a registered nick with NickServ, then you can request a virtual host which will appear instead of your IP address.

(try /msg HostServ help)

So there is an easy way around IP-based identification. The more you know.

1132

>>1131
This still requires a network operator to approve it, which can take time. Not to mention that you must be identified to NickServ before joining a channel in order for the vHost to be visible. If you join before NickServ identification is complete, you won't have your vHost visible in the join message.

MalevolentSpoon 2216

>>1946

Seems you'll need my personality. Okay, let's see if I can do this…

I'm relatively shy and socially awkward. I have a tendency to word things the wrong way, and thus prefer to stay silent when in the presence of others. When I do choose to speak, I talk fast, stutter, and either speak almost too quietly to hear or loud enough the whole room notices. Also, I talk to myself almost as if there's two of me. Literally all the time when I'm by myself.

I often attempt one-line situational jokes, however most of them seem to garner nothing more than a chuckle or a smile from a couple ponies. Much to my frustration.

Should I do something that makes someone unhappy with me, I will either try and remedy the problem or compensate for it, not always being successful, or in most cases, I will grow completely silent and let them have at me, and once they go on their way I slip off to feel sorry about myself.

As far as romance and relationships, as well as sex, I try my best to do whatever I can to make my partner happy, and I can be very affectionate. Or, more so, make it so they'll have at least one reason to like me, and bother to stay with me. Speaking of that, I often grow depressed and irritable when the subject of my appearance comes up, as past experiences leave me believing I'm hideous or mentally inept. This is the primary factor contributing to many of my previously listed behaviours. That and having lived a relatively sheltered life.

That should do you well enough. Any other questions, you can go ahead and ask, I suppose. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go wonder why I just put all this up here…

It seems we are in need of a new author, so I think I'll seize the opportunity.

Here is the roll call: http://pastebin.com/tcWCxy02

24 hours from posting this message, I will begin writing, unless "/b/read leader" emails me with a request not to (alongside proof that there is in fact progress being made). Similarly, if you wish to opt-in or opt-out, that's your time frame.

The first chapter will be done by next Sunday. I can't guarantee that every character will have made an appearance by then, though. (There are 23 of them.)

One last thing: since there's little chance of this being posted to FiMFiction (there are rules against circle-jerk stories, fuck me right?), is there any reason for the story to feature /fic/ personalities as ponies? I'm more comfortable writing with humans, is all. There's more to work with. Also, remember that I can still keep certain characters as sentient ponies (or bears) if desired, e.g., SumPony; it's a crackfic, after all.

It may just be me, but making everyone human seems like an exercise in missing the point. It's just not very /fic/ to write about humans. And also that would be boring and take away the inherent humor of ponies doing weird sex stuff (bite me, cloppers).

And if we could use "feeling more comfortable writing about humans" as an excuse for anything, none of us would be here. That stinks of a lack of imagination to me. It's a given that this won't be a very good fic—'twould be best to avoid making it a dull one as well.

Call it that if you want, but borrowing from the FiM universe to tell a story unrelated to it stinks more of laziness to me.

No, not exactly.

*Anthro* means ponies with human-like physical characteristics, such as hands, feet, and mammary sacs on the upper chest.
*Pony* — in this case — refers to the figures being entirely equine according to the physical traits seen in the show.
*Human should be self explanatory.

I dislike anthropomorhic ponies, but I greatly enjoy the actual ponies.

If this story becomes human, I would agree that the point has been lost. I have submitted what I call a ponysona, and I give it that pet name for a very good reason: it's the personality of an original pony character that I created. I do not wish my ponysona to be humanized, unless of course you've managed to find a way to literally and physically inflict it upon me. I especially revoke my permissions if this will become anthro, as I have already expressed my extreme distaste for them. I only wish for this story to actually be pony, since that was the point in the first place.

3073

>>3071
If any humans are at all involved, I immediately withdraw my support to use my character. I agreed to have my ponysona used in the story because I assumed it would be just ponies. Or griffons or bears or dragons. But no humans.

More to the point, The Madman was my name for the OP and author of the original HoRI. So unless you're still secretly Vimbert…

Come to think of it, unless /b/read leader delivers, my support is withdrawn anyway.

This is dumb. I still volunteer as cast, but it " doesnt count" if it's anthro or it's shit. Why aee we talking about forbidding someone from writong this, exactly?

3076

The original Hearts of Red Ink was a little like an introduction into /fic/'s culture for me. It was the first time I really got a grip of who /fic/ is, rather than just what. Even if through the lens of only one of its members, you still got to see how everyone behaved, because such things bring out the character in people. How did they react to someone else writing about them?

What struck me the most is that people here can afford to laugh at themselves. People can take a joke. It's good old British self-depricative humour (only you're all Americans). There's nothing I can't stand more than people who take themselves too seriously, which this place can easily give as an initial impression.

The main trouble with recreating this I think is shown above. You're all taking this too seriously. I get some concern behind what's going on (I dunno if I want to be written as a human either), but the magic of it all is the spontaneity. If you go ahead and set rules on that, then you're possibly stepping in the way of something great. Say you're in or you're out, and that's it. Creativity works best, as John Cleese says, without boundaries.

I also see the argument behind making it human. To quote from Ezn's guide:

>If you’re making your own characters and telling their story in, let’s say, far-distant future Equestria where everything’s war-torn and unrecognizable, and the princesses are dead, then you really need to think deeply about whether your story would actually benefit from being tied to the canon of a little girl’s show about ponies.


What about this idea has anything to do with Equestria? (By the way, nice "-ize" there, Ezn, you filthy mudblood.)

However, there is some myopia behind that argument, because it's painfully obvious everyone was expecting it to be pony. I mean, all the personas posted (I counted 5) are ponies, not humans. And this is a pony fanfiction board. That's reason enough to just make it pony if you ask me.

Still, I remain unconditionally vouched in to this. Chances are "The Madman" won't deliver anyway.

>>3072
I'm going to have to debate semantics here because your stipulation depends on it. Anthropomorphism is applying human characteristics (not just physical) to animals. The featured characters in My Little Pony are anthropomorphic. Demanding that I don't do anthro while also requesting that I do pony is contradictory.

If your issue is with giving humans pony-like *physical* characteristics, or vice versa, then say that. I have no intention of either and don't know where I ever said I did.

More to the point, despite your impression that "[it being pony] was the point in the first place", the original post of this thread makes no such implication. Aside from the location, there is no language that indicates nor necessitates such a stipulation. It even uses words like "people" and "personas", rather than their pony alternatives.

Frankly I find it a little humorous that this thought never crossed your mind. Someone please explain why a story featuring /fic/ (all of whom are in fact humans) should be made pony, or why it was even assumed to be such? The only explanation I can think of is that it allows you to distance yourself from your character, making whatever occurs more tolerable.

Again, stressing the point here that this is not anthro. Writing it pony would be anthro.

>>3073
Alright, then. Knocking the cast down wouldn't hurt too much anyway. 23 characters is a lot.

Well, those are excellent points, and I did not realize the technicalities of anthropology so, thank you for that. Yes, I utterly despise physical anthropomorphic modifications. The application of nonphysical human characteristics, is a given for most cartoons, a notable example being Spongebob. I enjoy that type of anthropology.

As to why it was assumed to be pony, it's quite simple, really: The original was pony, a number of our persona's are written as pony, and this is a pony writing community. Giving freedom to the human vs. pony would seem sensible, but I still prefer the latter for reasons I can't quite put my hoof on. In any case, I've written stories about members of this fandom as being human, so I suppose I would be able to tolerate it, and perhaps even enjoy it, provided the exposition compensates for the lack of desired pony.

That's like having an argument that 'The Brave Little Toaster' either is, or is not Furry.
It's semantics, and you both think you're right.

This does not change what was said in >>3050
> is there any reason for the story to feature /fic/ personalities as ponies? I'm more comfortable writing with humans, is all.

The apparent answer is, that because /fic/ is so attached to the ponies at it's roots, there's actually a very good reason to do /fic/ personas as ponies.

>rather than their pony alternatives.

Because stuffing "pony-speak" equivalents everywhere is fucking stupid and annoying.

> The only explanation I can think of is that it allows you to distance yourself from your character, making whatever occurs more tolerable.


Well duh.
In addition, I assure you you can not get people, as humans, in any accurate way. However our personas interact virtually, regularly. Anything that happens to those place markers is fun.

Anything that happens to people as a person, that borders on the creepy.

Anthro, by this fandoms definition, would be pic attached I'd believe. Note the addition of hands and human… sexual characteristics on an otherwise pony like body.

3082

>>3079
>It's semantics.
Well, obviously. Semantics are important when everyone is panicking like a bunch of headless morons about "anthro". How am I supposed to know what every single person's special-snowflake definition of that is? I'll stick to the widely agreed upon definition (as determined by dictionaries and historical usage) of terms I use, and I'd hope that everyone else does the same. Otherwise we may as well be speaking Latin.

The point here is that instead of using a term that does not mean what you want it to mean, how about using a different word. You can't possibly have a problem with the entire spectrum of anthropomorphism if you like Friendship is Magic. If people have a specific problem with something (e.g., hands on ponies), then say that.

That said, I seem to be in an overwhelming minority on this position, so I'll write the story as pony. That means the story is going to be anthro, unless you want your characters to act like real ponies who can't talk and just shit and eat grass all day.

Evidently I can't please everyone here. I'm of mind just to not include people who are apparently too scared to let anything interesting happen. Like I said, the cast is already very large. What were you expecting when you signed up for this? It's a crackfic. The only thing you should expect is the unexpected.

Eustatian!Wings60m9. 3090

I'm not going to pull support yet, but I'm awfully close. Not because I dislike you, Madman2, but because I think your heart is in the wrong place to properly write me.

Let me clarify "anthro" for you:

- canon ponies are physiologiacally horse-like
- canon ponies are psychologically human-like

I hope this does not come as a surprise.

If you turn them into Petting Zoo People, you will offend a lot of people, myself included. This is fine for lulz (as I see it), but do not portray us as liking it. Do not do it just because it makes things easier for you.

I do read clopfic, and when an author insists on more human-like physiology that's fine for their story, but I have to admit I'm disappointed. This isn't because human parts aren't attractive to me (quite the opposite), but because I like bending my imagination in new and interesting ways. Dude, who wouldn't want to be a stallion? Your squishy-bits don't jiggle around and smack in to things and invite comments and so on. You can wander around nude and be perfectly comfortable that way. That's pretty cool, don't you think?

Put it this way: if I write a story about owls who get involved in human-like interpersonal conflicts (Guardians of Ga'Hoole) part of the fun is that the characters can fly silently and see in the dark and do owly things like that. If you were to say, "Hey, they have anthro emotions, so let's write owl sex, except they should totally have humanoid dicks," I have to say you're ruining the fun. You've broken the game of pretend, just as badly as if you were to re-write Dungeons and Dragons into Papers and Paychecks.

I don't want you writing my avatar-character unless you understand this point from the depth of your soul. It means you'll need to do biological factchecking yourself, or ask for help. [email protected]

What do you mean by this?

- /fic/ reviewers are physiologically human-like
- /fic/ reviewers are psychologically human-like

My intention was to write about humans doing human things in a human environment (save for any fictional elements I invent) because everyone in /fic/ is human. I really don't get why everyone is insinuating that *I'm* the one pushing for anthro when I'm in fact pushing *against* it. I'm not writing humans with horsecocks, nor am I writing ponies with mancocks, because that's dumb. I agree with all of your points, but none of them really clarify the point of why there is such an insistence to use ponies at all.

>>3093
Grif was a seapony. Midnightshadow was a transforming unicorn-pegasus. The Samurai was human. None of these are canon show characteristics.

Edit: That all said and done… I believe the main and most interesting aspect of the whole thing was that it was organic, like a giant whale carcass in a beach just waiting to explode its entrails on the onlookers stupid enough to be making picnics around it. Very much like every single other "all of /fic/ " project as of late, /b/read leader's main mistake was trying to bring too much direction into a trainwreck, which was essentially what HoRI was and remains being: a deliciously ridiculous story which only gods knows how it didn't turn into something that… wait, it is hated, so what do I know.

And Filler was a bear, don't forget, but I think you missed the point as to why they were those:

Grif: Joke and alcohol.

Midnightshadow: a pony character with a personal quirk that happened in his self-insert story (go read it, it isn't half bad).

The Samurai: I don't think he even has a ponysona, or would want one, and he was known as that one guy who used Samurai Jack pics, so anything else would have been weird.

Filler: Joke as well. I seem to remember he choose to be a bear after Grif chose to be a seapony (a female looking one, apparently), but I can't remember.

So, basically, anyone out of it was played for laughs, or because he was some sort of holy cow which any other representation would have been weird.

As for your continued insistence that there is no reason to write ponies: Part of the joke is that being pony fans makes us ponies. Also we like ponies. I don't understand why you would want to go against those wishes when the whole idea is that it's about our online personas.

Actually I don't know why you would be inclined to go against our wishes.

Are you really insinuating that I'm unable to understand a joke? Do you really have the audacity after being completely unable to read what I'm saying to say that "You didn't understand [HoRI]?"

My point was that to ensure no character "deviate from the physical characteristics of the canon ponies of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," I am incapable of doing anything like that (e.g. Filler being a bear), including Dolfeus's request to be Alakazam. There's a clear contradiction in the requests because Bleeding Rain's is too restrictive. You're over-reading a purely semantic point for what I can only imagine is some misguided fear of my intentions. I'm sorry that my "heart's not in it" enough for your satisfaction.

I already said that I would write it pony just because everybody else wants it that way, but you've missed that too.

Logic and reading comprehension have nothing to do with it. I fear "your heart is in the wrong place." That you need to "understand this point from the depth of your soul."

Not once in this exchange - with myself and others - have you accepted responsibility, to my satisfaction, for the impact your proposals have had on the feelings of other human beings. You have defended your logical rightness, which in my case brings up bad memories from an abusive relationship. You have used the word "sorry" twice

> Using the likeness of real people without their permission is illegal, sorry.

> I'm sorry that my "heart's not in it" enough for your satisfaction.

and while the second one vaguely approaches an apology, it is in the context of dismissing my feelings.

You did not know. I haven't told anyone about this particular part of my past: but that sort of logic-armored non-apology is exactly what the person who abused me said to myself and to others.

You could not know. So, rationally, I don't want to hold you accountable for making me feel this way. It still hurts.

And to head off any possible confusion: I am not so deeply offended you want to take liberties with the physical description of anyone's avatar-character. That's cool. But you did hurt feelings. That's cool, too. Happens all the time when people care.

I am still withdrawing my support and consent to use my likeness. What really matters to me is my gut perception of whether you care enough about the people you're playing rough with.

This is not a fair standard, but it is the standard my scarred heart needs.

If the writer writes something that no one likes, the only harm done barring hurt feelings will be that person's time being wasted, unless anyone here actually hasn't had the gumption to do useful things while waiting for something to come of this, and has in fact squandered time posting in this thread in anticipation (or whatever).

Edit: after wasting time reading through the angry posts in this thread I think I understand where you're coming from, Eustatian. Vimbert was a cool guy, and people trusted him enough (even writing under a different pseudonym) to make something that wouldn't be intentionally offensive to everyone who was portrayed in it. People trusted him because he didn't seem to exhibit any sense of disrespect for /fic/ regulars in the thread or in his writing.

All of that is why I'm withdrawing my support for this. Based on your posts and the way you talk to the people who would be your characters and your readers, you either a) don't care, which makes you completely unfit for the job or b) think we owe you something, when that is not the case. Volunteering to write HoRI2 is not special. It does not make you a celebrity or a guru or the Master of All Things /fic/.

Vimbert wrote HoRI to be fun and funny and to poke fun at everything. Your approach, the way you address the people in this thread, the way you treat "anthro versus human versus pony" is so completely and utterly out of whack that I honestly don't believe any good can come from this.

So I take it you've never been on the IRC then?
Because I've never seen more Space Jam youtube links…

Is it bad that I just call you Diane Fossey Anon in my head? Because /fic/ only seems to be dangerous levels of serious. Try it for a while, you'll start to see what happens. Eventually you'll start to see the inanity that underlies the external expression. Just because we have the text based equivalent of suits on doesn't mean what we're saying should be taken seriously.

This is my most recent completed thread: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/fic/res/104134.html

I'm no expert, but when you put your heart and soul into crafting a work, it's completely different than just shitposting what ever comes to mind.
You do it for a while, start to develop some tastes. Likes and dislikes.
You start having to explain concepts to people. Concepts that now seem basic to you, yet most of these people have never considered things in that fashion.

You have to learn, and change, and find niches… Next thing you know, you're writing 500 word responses to 'NO U' posts. The fact it looks serious belies the fact it's you mostly insulting their parentage, education, and background.

Lots of other big players in the Training Grounds like Cassius, Dromer, CartoonGeld, Onej6 et al were not included because they either paid it no mind or were against it.

Nowhere in the original thread did someone say "this is disgusting" and the author/editors say "this person will be the squeamish prude in the story, making it more fun to violate them." I know where to find an archive of that thread, so I can always double-check this. Yet here in this thread, we have a comment that is not only of that ilk but rude as well.

Only replying because I can't seem to post without doing so. Da fuq?

Anyhow, OP, write the fucking story before I track you down, bust out my custom ballgag with hollowed out viking horn attachment, and proceed to 'share' my entire, voluminous collection of scotch with you. Every last drop.

As for 'research' into your character mate, this is easy if a tad time-consuming. There are hundreds of threads where all of your characters reveal their quirks and personalities (see the above, neh?). I'd be surprised if you hadn't already done this, but if you've no time for it, bring in someone who already knows everyone long-term as consultant, and get writing.

>also, hey guys

3160

*sigh*

I *really* didn't want to have make this post…

First, just to clear things up, I've only posted under this name in here. The Anonymous author is another person.

I have a lot of respect for /fic/. Well, I have enough respect that you guys have all successfully made me feel like an asshole.

Eustatian, I'm sorry if my manner brought up any old skeletons. Earnestly.

I have no intention of writing people if they don't want me to. If I ever gave the impression that I would disregard such a simple request, I'm sorry again.

I shouldn't have even mentioned the humans thing. That was just dumb. In hindsight after doing some preliminary planning, a pony story would make more sense anyway.

I'm going to redo the roll call. I've gathered a list of people who remained opted in even after I posted. There's enough variety there to get me started. Everyone else can choose to opt in again if they want to be in the story.

Here's the list again: http://pastebin.com/tcWCxy02

I've done some brief outlining of the characters as well. I figure they'll help you in deciding whether or not I have any idea about or respect for the subject matter: http://pastebin.com/ffw16PyD

Well, this is all interesting. I was afraid this was going to turn into a big argument (one I'll admit I allowed myself to get pulled into) and was pretty close to ragequitting and pulling myself from this whole fiasco on account of yet another /fic/ kerfuffle. I don't like arguments, mostly because they get under my skin more than anything else. (I shouldn't be on the internet then, right?) In any case, I'm glad that this returned to a calm state while I wasn't here to screw it up further, and I look forward to the final product.

Edit:
After looking at that outline, this looks interesting. I'm both excited and afraid to see how I'll be used.

It seems I can't not dip into this, if only because this thread is too hilarious to ignore.

This thread has become, in its own special way, a comedy in three acts.

I mean, come on. Part of the hilarity of the original was that the crazed mystery author didn't ask anyone's permission. All they could do was look on in horrified fascination as the story continued, regardless of their wishes. Sure, there might have been some bruised egos, but people understood that it was a joke. The story was basically self-contained in /fic/, and so self-deprecating that you'd have to be crazier than the author to actually be upset.

Have we, as a group, really become so attached to our image that we have to make requests and demands? That there are certain things that shouldn't be done in your name, lest they offend your morals?

I feel like that's missing the point, somehow.

Oh well.

That's what I said from the beginning!

JKinsley!xR570Wc1AA 3209

>>3207
I think that the whole point behind the original HoRI was that Ponychan's rules restricted what could be done within the story. Certainly, there were plenty of instances of possibly offensive material, but the "most offensive" material was done to the author by "me" who more-or-less consented to being the crazy kinky one.

And yes, given the fact that MLPchan is far less restrictive in terms of content, I believe that the group can ask for some considerations about what their characters are going to go through.

I really don't think anyone has asked for any considerations that are that restrictive. If anything, the requests serve to reduce the choices available to either author and will give them some measure of what to do (or not do).

Well, except Ion, who was happy to go about the test drive with the original version of the story, where there was the bender.

Come to think of it, it was less asking and more people throwing themselves at the story to see what happens, so I don't think the comparison is even valid as you didn't do anything but try to juggle everyone, and… failed? It was kind of the point, so I don't know.

> story

not sure if actively being bad in the meta sense. if not i couldn't really see it coming through unless there are distinct marks of a badfic that i have not noticed. reviewer instincts got the better of me nonetheless and i decided i'd post a few comments.

> don't try this at home

is it even possible, if dolpheus has exceptional power?

the post gender change examination seemed not wacky enough in its diction and tone to have me believe it has a droll wit, but at the same time is not hamfisted enough to seem parodically meta-bad

why is ad-hoc italicized? what's next, "et cetera" and "ergo" get slanted?

there is just enough /fic/ metropolis imagery for this to work. barely. the one reference to equestria by name is very jarring; symbolic representation of an internet location/community and actual place in show coexisting? dunno if i want to be reminded of that in a meta fic.

> there's never a dull moment…gender-bender

i think you meant past tense here since split is expressing frustration with the present (and nostalgia.)

all in all it's not bad but it's not like i'm holding my breath to see more.

While I can't really tell what's being drawn on from my behavior, I now realize that I basically requested this. Also I'm amused by the fact that my name is the one given to the troublemaking jerk.

There is one big "bitchy reviewer" thing that sticks out to me, and that's the fact that my character is introduced with a big fat omni-narrator infodump. What?

And I really did appreciate the visualization of /fic/ as a city. Cute idea, do it more.

All's fair in love and war (though I'd much rather you ask than beg, unless that's your thing). You're one of the few people that actually gave a substantive description of your character, which is a whole lot more helpful than you might realize.

>>3492
I don't really have any intention of making it "hamfisted." I was rather going for that "droll wit" thing. Despite the subject matter, I don't see any reason why I can't put effort into making this as well-written as I can make it.

Contrarily, though, I don't have any plans to edit this. I'm pretty sure handing it over to anyone for a red-pen treatment would make the rate of delivery slow down to a snail's pace. My writing's not perfect, but I'd rather not let perfect be the enemy of good.

Fine by me. The act of criticism was for its own sake, not because I want in on some sort of privileged editing dogpile like what happened in the original HoRI. This:
> you aren't on the roll call
is irrelevant.

For the record, you can use my character if you want, seeing as you've made amends and proven you can deliver. One way or another I'm glad something is being written.

Just because I happen to be interested in the story, however, doesn't mean I won't toss criticism at it if/when I feel inclined. This goes without saying: don't let it discourage you.
