Description: A unicorn pony, after many years of work, has finally managed to give herself a working set of wings. Well, mostly working...
Want to read, but something is up with the link...
@MasterMaskIt works, it's just in a really strange format.
Not sure wants up then. Keeps asking me to log in.Perhaps because I'm on an IPod or something like that.Too bad, this one looked good.
So what if I ship the ponies with characters from the TV show The OC? That's still fine, right? I've got this spicy Mischa BartonxFluttershy piece in the works.
@AnonymousY'all be trollin'.
>I'll draw the line at OC shipping.Thank you. Thank you so very much.
Would shipping with Derpy or Ditzy be considered OC shipping?
Derpy and dizzy are both in the show
@I'm not really hereCourse not, don't you know they're now cannon?
Derpy and Ditzy shipping 'maybe' in the future near you thanks for the comfirmation. (Two mail ponies delivering love at the speed of flight, ones wall-eyed and the others cross-eyed! I know their canon but I wondered if Ditzy counted as Derpy, not two seperate characters)
Most people take Ditzy and Derpy as two differnt interpitations of the same character, though it's perfectly possible to have them be two seperate characters as well. It'd certianly be interesting to see your take on that.
I'm not really sure I'd get it right if I did write it Nopony, someone else would be more effective for it. As I can't really perform my idea's too well I can only let them fly out in the open for someone to pick up and the shipping must start with a cupcake and muffin war. The title would be something like "Muffin but you cupcakes".
>I'm getting a lot of OC pony stories lately, and I have no clue what image to assign to them. I'll draw the line at OC shipping alright?I am cool with it either way to be honest. OC stuff doesn't bug me as long as the story is good and the character(s) is/are interesting, and that includes shipping, but that is just me. Even if there was no OC stuff allowed I'd still be totally fine with it here.
I have never minded OC, in fact some of it is pretty awesome.But if dash kissing that OC pony in the last drawfriend post is any indication, im in the minority here.
Wasn't the main problem with the OC that he was weirdly coloured? As in, looked like a Sue? Not to mention that the hate posts were by Anons anyway, so really, what's the problem? And you'd have to delete some stories already on this site, which would be a crying shame. We have a grimdark tag, so perhaps we'd need an OC-shipping one too. You said you didn't want to add too many tags, and I perfectly understand that, so perhaps add it in the description and fine. I find it hard to believe that ANY story would generate as much backlash as Cupcakes did on the merit of having OC shipping alone anyway.Also, I am well aware of the hypocrisy of bashing Anons when I myself am currently one. I really should get me a proper profile...
@SethistoPersonally I thought the Dash/OC kissing pic was pretty cute. The only thing that bugged me about it was the OC looked kinda "cat like" if that makes any sense.
Shouldn't we be talking about the story more?Personally I liked it. Particularly the detail in which you described the mechanics and preflight checks. Clearly a lot of thought went into it and I think it works well. I'll look forward to reading any additional installments.
Now to attempt some criticism.You might want to go over the first paragraph again. For example "and a chilly, slightly salted breeze blew in from the sound." I assume you meant 'south' or 'with the sound' probably autocorrect changing your words.And in the next line; "what I was about to do, nervous as hell." perhaps 'what I was about to do made me nervous as hell.' would flow better.The next couple of lines are quite long with lots of commas. I feel those lines could do with a fullstop or two in order to break them up. Such as here "powered flights," and here "in Canterlot,".Just my opinions of course.
@uSeaA sound is an actual term for a body of water, as anyone living in Seattle could tell you :)
@AnonymousHadn't heard of that before.Learn something new every day.
sorry I gotta ask, what's OC?
is anybody going to comment how they liked the story in the comments section of this story? :Dplease carry it on, I liked it - the ending was anti-climactic, but I liked it. I like the take on how they power/use everything since very often we just see invisible fingers and things happening.
>I'll draw the line at OC shipping alright.Well this just crushed me a bit. I've been writing a ship with a background pony and Fluttershy now for a couple of days, and I had just finished polishing it up and was just about to send it in... but now I guess I won't. Feelsbadpony.jpg
Love this. As a pilot, I know those pre-flight checks (and the accompanying nervousness) all too well...
@AnonymousI hate to fill here with even more non-story comments but OC's are refering to completely fabricated characters. If you're taking an existing background pony, fleshing them out and giving them a personality, then it should be fine.To me at least.
Ok that cheered me up. I should have my story finished later tonight if all goes well. Thankyou for clearifying what he meant by OC for me.
