>>5834 Do they not have filters? I've never made an account so I don't actually know. When searching I always include the terms: -anthro -"equestria girls" and that at least filters that. The search itself isn't all that good. Searching on Google with inurl:fimfiction.net can sometimes lead to better results. I miss when Pastebin still have a search and hadn't deleted things yet. That is where I used to go for looking up greentexts. I know there's been some attempts to make a similar search (such as IAS) but it really doesn't come close.
>>5835 The fimfiction filter system is terrible. It only filters descriptors, of the author elects to not include any, you're fucked. Plus the tagging system is garbage. Many times when I start to suspect faggotry afoot in a story, I will have to resort to skimming comments and potentially spoilering myself to find out if my suspicions are correct.
>>5836 >of *if the author
>>5835 >>5836 >>5837 What I really want that Twibooru promised is "Twific", a conglomeration of greens and Fimfiction with a booru style tagging system - which would also let you configure your front page and filter out the obvious garbage.
>>5838 Honestly a booru-style greentext site would be amazing. Hopefully Twific becomes a thing, though I wonder how/if that'll work out as the same people who do Twibooru now operate PonePaste. Maybe we'll see PonePaste transformed? I don't know.
>>5834 Add published:<2013-02-15 to your search string and you'll never see EqG/Twilicorn/G5 ever.
>>5846 >Twilicorn Uh, it was a fairly prominent staple of early Fimfiction. Everyone knew she was going to get it eventually, just not so soon.
>>5834 I was locked out of my derpibooru on a new device so no filters and it was the same fucking shit
>>6138 I discovered my filters remove 1 million images now.

>>6165 There were a couple of regular ones too.
>>6161 I still hoped someone out there made that already, but I guess that's the only way. I'll have to spell out the rules (what exactly constitutes "classic FiM" (e. g. does Cadance count), how do we deal with sexual stuff etc. ), estimate the amount of work etc. I guess I'll just have to go fic by fic, maybe filtering out some obvious phrases like "Princess Twilight" or "Twilight's wings", it's a lot of work nonetheless, but it's probably worth it. An entire tagging system like >>5838 would be the absolutely best solution, but I'll try to finish one thing at a time.
>>5834 Jinglemas is a fucking joke this year. Fucking flood of creatures, eqg and shit. There was even a fic about retired Celestia. I fucking want to beat up those shitters who write about """retirement""" till there won't be any intact bone in them.
>>6177 Ugh, don't even get me started on the "retirement" The show really did the Princesses dirty, especially the last two shit seasons. Occasional sisterly bickering, yes. Cute and relatable. Dumb goofy teenage behavior? Fuck you.
>>6177 Now I kinda understand sandniggers who massacred Charlie Hebdo.

>>5834 Write what you want to read, anon. It's the only way. I still write unicorn Twilight stories even though every time I publish one I inevitably get some "why are you writing about unicorn Twilight in current year? She's a princess now" dumbass comment on it.
>>9148 The right answer to that question is, "the show is over. She is not anything right now."
>>9166 Fictional universes do not just end when we stop viewing them. Last we saw her, she was a fully grown alicorn princess. Discounting the time skip, she is still a growing alicorn princess. Therefore, until a sequel is made that states otherwise, canon is disregarded, or another canon is a adopted, she will always remain that way.
>>9749 Kind of a moot point considering fanifics are not 'canon' in the first place.
>>9754 Not really, I was responding to the poster making the claim that she isn't anything, not the poster that told us to write what we want to read. That said, the poster I was responding to was arguing that since the show came to a stop she's automatically nonexistent universe wise, to which I corrected by saying that the show will remain as it was left off until a sequel/reboot/retcon is made
>>9749 >Fictional universes do not just end when we stop viewing them. On the contrary, they do precisely that. Their boundaries are defined by when they are perceived. Fiction is not a thing tethered to any objectivity. Fictional characters--and the fictional worlds that they inhabit--have no existence independent of the narrative in which they are presented. Any new narrative, regardless of how closely it attempts to conform to the conventions that are perceived to have been established in the original fiction, is just that--a new narrative, a new fiction, an "alternate universe." Beyond the original narrative, Twilight Sparkle is no more a unicorn than she is a princess. She is, first, whatever the new author wants her to be and then whatever the reader interprests her as being. Beyond that, what is canon? Is it merely what ended up getting presented on television? Can what was presented on television even be called a single narrative? No, the authors changed, additions contributed by other authors often contradicted prior conventions and were never even reconsiled with the original narrative (eg. Granny Smith founding Ponyville). If supposed "canon" itself can contradict the original narrative, how then is it not just as apocryphal as anything writen by non-Hasbro employees?
>>9789 Nice try, Josh. >>>/lit/
>>9789 >If supposed "canon" itself can contradict the original narrative, how then is it not just as apocryphal as anything writen by non-Hasbro employees? Because it is worked on by employees of Hasbro, which in turn owns the IP. Or, if we want to be entirely exclusionary, we can instead claim that only content approved by Lauren Faust should be allowed since she is the show creator. >On the contrary, they do precisely that. Their boundaries are defined by when they are perceived. Fiction is not a thing tethered to any objectivity. You're correct, fiction is not tethered to objectivity. Instead, it creates its own objectivity, rules, and laws. If these are broken, continuity is also considered broken, and if a story does not contain continuity, it can hardly be considered a story. My point here is that the fictional universe is put into a sense of stasis when it is not being continued. If Hasbro decided (or decides) to continue G4, then the universe would continue with it. If they decided to reboot it, then the pre-reboot universe would remain paused until such a time where its continuity is picked up by the owner of the IP. The only time a character or a fictional universe does not exist is when no content of it exists.

>Arguing about semantics >Fictional universe Whatever the most people in a context agree on and call "canon" is canon in that context. Definitionally that's how language works.
>>9801 >Because it is worked on by employees of Hasbro, which in turn owns the IP. The same is true of Gens 1, 2, 3, and 5, and Hasbro does not draw clear lines between them. Ponyville was the setting of a Gen 3 toy line, and, if I hear correctly, Gen 5 is full of callbacks to Gen 4. Then you have Gen 1's Twilight Velvet appearing in "Call of the Cutie." Do Meghan and Quenn Majesty share the same narrative that Twilight Sparkle and Celestia do? I would say not, but then that could make for an interesting story. >Or, if we want to be entirely exclusionary, we can instead claim that only content approved by Lauren Faust should be allowed since she is the show creator. It would be convenient to do so if we want to use an established narrative as a setting for new tiny horse adventures, just because it was largely coherent and operated according to a set of rules. >My point here is that the fictional universe is put into a sense of stasis when it is not being continued. If Hasbro decided (or decides) to continue G4, then the universe would continue with it. If they decided to reboot it, then the pre-reboot universe would remain paused until such a time where its continuity is picked up by the owner of the IP. That only works if you accept the IP owner, Hasbro, as the author of the narrative, but there is no reason to do so. Hasbro did not create the initial story; Lauren Faust did. Hasbro did not build the world (mandated inclusions like Princess Cadence and the Crystal Tree Library not withstanding); the writers and animators did. The company never created the narrative (in so far as it can be said that there is one). Why then call the company the author? >>9804 This isn't semantics. It's ontology.

>>9926 >Tom and Jerry crossover I don't know. Fluttershy meeting Tom and Jerry who are fully engrossed in trying to brutally murder each other sounds pretty fucking funny. Maybe throw an equally killy Opalesence into the mix and have Rarity freak out about a mouse being in her boutique.
>>9936 Well, I guess Tom and Jerry is an exception considering it already has many crossovers, one with FiM would be surprisingly fitting. Friendship lesson would probably be something along the lines of even the greatest enemies being able to become friends.
>>9947 >Friendship lesson would probably be something along the lines of even the greatest enemies being able to become friends. Then the ponies would leave, and it turns out Jerry was faking going along with it to not have to deal with Twilight Sparkle's autism. Jerry would sucker punch Tom and then get chased off the screen as the episode closes to a circle and Jerry winks at the viewer.
>>5834 Is there a group to which I may upload all but one of my stories so that others will know they don't contain such things, that they only adhere to the proper canon and are about proper ponies and the like? I do accept commissions not that anyone takes me up on the offer and I'm not totally opposed to writing homosexuality in a story, so long as I may charge extra for it. Currently, none of my stories have any horrible shipping garbage in them; I'd add warnings for them, anyway. >>5838 We see how that went. >>6156 >That's what I often do, but I'm sure there are cool active/new authors out there, they're just hard to find… Should I shill myself here? >Too bad there isn't (afaik) a group that'd collect newer fics in the style of "classic FiM". The group "Faustian Orthodoxy" is dead. Someone should make such a group. The remainder of this post recycles some things I've written over the years; I've recycled these points several times by now, I notice. >>9148 >Write what you want to read, anon. It's the only way. I wholly agree. Too many authors decide to make fun of the worse aspects of the later seasons, instead of ignoring them entirely, as I do. I stopped watching the show in season five, and I dislike chunks of what came before, so I purposefully distinguish my world when I write. Whenever I mention Twilight, I also mention she's, of course, a unicorn. I write fetish stories, though I don't merely write fetish stories, but create a beautiful backdrop of Equestria in which to place them. Too few authors do this, as well. >>9749 I don't give a fuck what Hasbro considers canon. I have my canon and will autistically obsess over it until I'm dead, and I'll refuse to create any artwork or stories that contradict my canon, including changing major events. No business gets to create, or rather fund, art and simultaneously worm its way into men's skulls and tell them how to accept it. Fuck that. I have more enthusiasm and more talent than the late show writers, so I won't give a damn about what they did. Twilight Sparkle is a unicorn and always will be. There's a story involving Cadence I'll eventually write; she'll be a pegasus who has a magical artefact keeping her young, which she will plan to give to her descendent. Regardless, I have much more fun writing about secondary and original characters, although I've written some good Pinkie Pie stories. As I've already stated, we control the canon. I'm completely serious when I claim to have more enthusiasm than the later writers, so my version of canon matters more than theirs.
>>9801 >If Hasbro decided (or decides) to continue G4, then the universe would continue with it. Don't let Hasbro yank you back and forth like a dog. I'll tack some miscellaneous writing advice to the end of my posts: I take a lot of care to write my stories properly. It's very easy to shatter the verisimilitude by poor word selection, or carelessly referencing Earth. I try to not deviate too much from modern English, unless it's relevant, but there are some nitpicks I make, although my earlier stories don't feature these as heavily. I don't write "they" when a character's sex is known and, traditionally, the male pronoun is used when the sex is unknown, but I like putting RGRE undertones in my stories, so I use the female pronoun instead. I avoid calling children "kids", because that word refers to goats. I also avoid mentioning "hands" in my work, and have recently started avoid derived words such as "handle" as well; I'd rather write "hoofle", or find a way to avoid the awkward phrasing entirely. It's relatively easy to replace the verb "handle" with the verb "stomach" as one example. Since I've already written a long post, I'll also complain about how badly Twilight's characterization has been mangled by that princess shit, even though I'm preaching to the choir here. I've read stories where damn near every mention of Twilight is just about being a princess, and getting accustomed to her new princess body. She could take a shit, and it would be a princess shit. How anyone can like Twilight, yet not recognize this mangles her beyond recognition is beyond me. I wanted to read what seemed like a nice story once, and I don't read stories much, but it just kept rubbing it in my face, at every opportunity. Twilight was literally just walking, and the writer took the time to go into detail about how it was different now that she was a princess. I didn't finish it.
>>10723 >I don't give a fuck what Hasbro considers canon. I have my canon and will autistically obsess over it until I'm dead Based. If you were following the logic of the hasbro cocksuckers then if the company arbitrarily decided to say that none of the seasons are canon, only equestria girls, you would be forced to go with it. Also lol, what the fuck happened to your post?
