Luna's Story: Rise of the Lunar Stallions.

Adventure / Romance


"Princess Luna falls comatose and is revived by the love-sick kiss of one of Celestia's guards. As a reward, she leads him to the ancient hidden barracks of her long forgotten guardian force. Their slowly blossoming romance gives birth to a breed of royal guard not seen in 1,000 years. The Lunar Stallions!"

I absolutely love this story. Not only does the author do an OC right, he manages to pull off a believable relationship between the OC and Princess Luna. The humor and sexual tension keep the story engaging and interesting from chapter to chapter.

dat bonus chapter. Laughed so hard.

Beating the Heat

Romance / Comedy


"Our heroines learn that there are some… Side effects of being the Holders of the Elements of Harmony. Now, with Spike, Doctor Whooves and Big Mac, can our favorite mares keep their nethers under control long enough to save Equestria from themselves?"

At a staggering 78,854 words this story is by no means an easy read. However, I recommend it to everyone lookin' for a great comedy (of errors).

The subject matter is somewhat risque yet despite its premise it maintains a teen rating leaving much of the fill in the blanks matter up to the readers imagination.

What I particularly enjoyed about the story was the dry humor that had me blurting out laughing multiple times at the absuridty and clever wording the author used.

The author keeps the mane 6 scarily in character and despite a lack of grandiose/large words it keeps the reader entertained throughout.

Night of the Werepony

Slice of Life


"Fluttershy gets bitten by a werewolf from the Everfree Forest, but when a side effect of the changes is extra confidence, she starts to wonder if the cure is such a good idea. Even if she does start to behave a little 'differently' otherwise…"

An adorable episode styled fanfic thats short and pleasent to read. I recommend this to anyone who wants a warm story to read.

It's Always Sunny in Fillydelphia.

Comedy / (mild) Romance / Slice of Life.


"When Applejack goes with Rainbow Dash on a trip to Fillydelphia, she learns that life doesn't always go according to plan… and that can lead to something better."

A lighthearted fic about Applejack's day in Fillydelphia. Intelligent, slow-paced shipping.

I'll check this out.


There's a sequel to it, although it's not nearly as good.

I felt like this one lacked drive. It quickly just became AJ enjoying herself and touristing around. No matter how hard I laughed my ass off about the whole Applecon and "historical fiction" shtick.

Tactical DidntBringMyTrip 155

Okay, I guess I'll contribute now that I've been all negative.

I've read a couple things lately from, ironically enough, fimfic's featured box that I thought were absolutely wonderful.

The first was Nineteen Neighty Four, which is fun enough but loses a lot if you don't get all the little elements from 1984 that are being parodied.

The second is— actually, /everything/ by One Terrible Writer. Obligatory clop warning but nothing dark and no really horrifying fetishes unless you've got a weak disposition towards humorous depravity. The exception to this statement is the one about Mac and Daisy. I don't have the nerve to read that one.

Tactical AttentionWhorse 165


Oh, I should mention that OTW's fics are all humorous. Hilarious, actually. MMMMolestation on the Friendship Express was especially awesome.

Alright, sooo…

I'm interested in reading a few #Mature type of fics, and composing one or two of my own in time, but I haven't really read any yet. Recommendations for some that are fairly well written?

Tactical AttentionWhorse 176


Romance Reports. Field Notes on Alicorn Reproduction. Trixie's Magic Bit. Uh… I'd Like to Be a Tree? Everything by One Terrible Writer?

I've never read a grimdark that I liked—Rainbow Factory is totally overrated—so, uh, End of Ponies?

Eustat, element of cynic 177

EoP is fairly dark, but not really M-gore. Come to think of it, my favorite dark fics aren't all that explicit. Things like "Beyond the Wall" and such.

Except for Project Horizons. There're some really hard-to-read scenes in there.

Trixie's has a sickeningly effective rape scene. I only mention that as fair warning, though, since it's also one of the sweetest and most dramatic clops I'm aware of.

Love . Sick is okay and a lot of folks really like it.

And I have to say that I'm actually impressed by "Cupcakes." Dash is so heartbreakingly in character.

Tactical DidntBringMyTrip 180


Listen, you well know what a fan I am of that story, but I actually thought that scene ran the ragged edge of disrespectful. It was effective, but the way it was resolved kind of…

Eh. You know what I mean.

Tactical AttentionWhorse 181


Oh yeah one more thing.

Cupcakes wasn't a grimdark, it was a sick joke—the pony equivalent of a dead baby joke. You are right about this: The best thing in it is the way they're so in character.

Fallout: Equestria

Grimdark, Adventure, Crossover


200 years after Equestria got destroyed by the Zabras' Balefire bombs, Little Pip, a Pipbuck repair pony from Stable 2, leaves her safe home to bring back one of her friends who left the Stable for no known reason. On her journey, she encounters the dangers of the Wasteland, finds new friends and finally her true virtue: Sacrifice.

A really well written, entertaining, dramatic story with a huge fanbase, great art and many side fics. Made me shed tears while reading it and still does if I remember certain parts.
It's quite time consuming to read because it's soooo long, but it's really worth it.
I highly recommend it.

WARNING: Contains gore, violence, shipping.

This fic is what got me into fanfiction writing: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/3268/Doctor-Whooves---The-Series%3A-Episode-One---The-Pinkie-Conundrum

Doctor Whooves, The Series: Episode One - The Pinkie Conundrum

Comedy, Crossover, Adventure, Slice of Life, Alternate Universe

Following the Events of 'Traveler', Twilight goes to Canterlot to deliver her report on what has transpired since the Doctor's Arrival in Ponyville directly to Princess Celestia, leaving the Doctor alone with Spike while the TARDIS attempts to recharge and fully repair itself from it's fall into Equestria.
Although at first distraught at being stranded in the seemingly serene township of Ponyville, The Doctor must re-examine his initial assumptions about Ponyville, The World of Equestria, and His Compulsive Need to Travel when he is confronted with the almost miraculous, impossible events surrounding Ponyville's resident party-mare: Pinkie Pie.

It's incredibly well-written.

SnowPony 795

So, um, this is the right place to ask for recommendations?

I'm just coming down off of reading Upheaval: Breaking Point and Upheaval: Reckoning (grimdark, gore, death (not cast members), war, blood, fighting, OC's galore, WIP) http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Visiden+Visidane and MAN that was awesome. I want to read something else like that. Not exactly like it obviously, but.. well..

I want something with an epic sort of feel.. Longer is preferred :)

I seem to really like stories that include Luna and Celestia — as good guys, generally, but not as a rule (I actually really dig stories where Celestia falls like Luna once had). The mane cast is over all awesome to me also of course :)
I don't mind OC's or special characters, generally, as long as they're not .. well.. clumsily handled. ("Twilight Sparkle gasped as she laid eyes on OCStallion. He was GORGEOUS and made her stomach flipflip as lust over took her young body!")
Grimdark is enjoyable, but I don't like stories where Pinkie is a evil butcher, generally.

Stories that break canon, or deviate from the story are fine. Stories that get into building a WORLD and explore the how's and why's are AWESOME. Worldbuilding and Details make me happy and help immerse me into a story~

Things I've read and loved recently: Fallout Equestria, Upheaval, Into the Depths (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/60514/Into-The-Depths - grimdark, horror, celestia, death, gore, tones of frakking goosebumps, wip), Equestria from Dust ( http://www.fimfiction.net/story/33610/Equestria-from-Dust - Celestia, Luna, creating the world together <3) Silent POnyville ( http://www.fimfiction.net/index.php?view=category&user=223 - Silent Hill + my little pony. Darkness and gore should be expected.)

I'm sure there were others I loved as well, but I figure tha'ts a fair start. I'd very much love anypony's suggestions for other stories I might like. :) the tl;dr version would be.. epic lengthed stories, generally focusing on 'saving the world' sort of plots (rather then 'falling in love' or 'slice of life'), with an inclination towards the grimdark. Detailed story worlds are fantastic things, and i have a soft spot for the Alicorn sisters, though anypony can make a wonderful protagonist. :)

At your service!

I haven't read very much of it myself, but The Immortal Game http://www.fimfiction.net/story/1886/The-Immortal-Game sounds right up your alley. It's pretty much the pony war fic that everyone's always talking about and recommending.

You might also enjoy The Empty Room http://www.fimfiction.net/story/53/The-Empty-Room I didn't like it much personally because I'm not so much into grimdark and I thought there were too many characters, but I think it might appeal to you a bit more. Give it a shot.

My Little Metro http://www.fimfiction.net/story/446/My-Little-Metro is the hipster Fallout: Equestria, and it's pretty well written. Again, I haven't read a lot of it, but I like what I've read so far.

And speaking of hipster FOE, The End of Ponies http://www.fimfiction.net/story/1571/The-End-of-Ponies is one of my very favourite fics. The prose is dense and the story can be quite a slog in a lot of places, but the world-building is incredibly deep, and the pay-offs towards the end of each arc make the sloggy bits worth it.

Background Pony http://www.fimfiction.net/story/19198/Background-Pony by the same author as the fic above, is lighter going, and epic in places, but it might be a bit too slice-of-lifey for your tastes, and it has been criticised for lacking solid direction.

Harmony http://www.fimfiction.net/story/18342/Harmony would probably be 2012's Fallout: Equestria if Aquaman updated a little more often, but nonetheless it's shaping up to be an epic tale, and there's already a fair bit to chew on. It's a Bioshock fusion with OC protagonists, told in first person present tense (which might be a little jarring at first).

off-topic: Just noticed MLPchan doesn't strip extra spaces like Ponychan does. Kind of a shame, but at least we'll be able to discern posters' ages. =P

This story… This story is absolutely hilarious. Ignore the title and just read it. Seriously, it's amazing.

Was this the picture?

Not sure if anyone's actually written a story about that though.

Croswynd's Strive might interest you though. http://www.fimfiction.net/story/91733/strive

Does anyone have suggestions for a good Minecraft/MLP crossover fic? It seems like there's a lot of potential in such a mix, but it seems to be one of those crossover pairs that attracts lots of newbie writers, and of rather not wade through all the mediocre stuff to find the true gems.

That was probably an autocorrect mistake.

I'm looking for some good Big Mac x Rarity or Big Mac x Luna if that even exists.

Actually hell, I'd just like some good fics about Big Macintosh in general, don't necessarily need to be ships I guess

Are there any stories where everypony becomes immortal?
