    [Crossover][Adventure] Rainbow Dash dresses in style~

    Author: Candle Light
    Description: When Rainbow Dash finds herself lost in a new and unfamiliar village, she reaches out to a certain lavender-hued stranger for help. But to Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash is no stranger; at least until she notice her strange new voice, a lack of wings, and a fondness of the word ‘darling’. Intrigued by the uncanny looks to one of her best friends, she decides to lend the newcomer a helping hoof, but things go from weird to weirder when Pinkie Pie happily announces that she too has met her lookalike. Twilight Sparkle and her friends take it upon themselves to find out the truth behind this mystery: who are these doppelgangers? Could there really be another Ponyville out there? And what does it all have to do with Discord’s lost legacy?

    [Crossover][Grimdark][Sci-fi][Adventure]

    Author: Dalek Ix
    Description: For little less than one thousand years, the species of Equestria had been a part of the Trade Order, sharing the millenium of peace of prosperity the humans had enjoyed.

    Now, with the arrival of alien invaders and the return of ancient evils, that peace was been shattered. A people unused to war had to rediscover its ways and fight for their home. The Trader Emergency Coalition was born from this need.

    Ten years have passed, and the sitation has improved to the point High Command has authorized a rotation of the forces, sending the weary first generation back to their homes, to rest and recover.

    Meanwhile, a lavander unicorn mare who has never been on a planet is travelling to Equestria on behalf of her teacher...

  • December Draw Off Final Week!

    Week 3 Compilation
    E-mail Contest Questions to:
    calpaina@gmail.com

    As before, a note before we begin, since I receive so many entries occasionally an entry may slip through that does not belong to the submitter. If any submitted picture to your knowledge has been stolen please contact me with proof and I will take care of the situation. Also if you have submitted an entry and it has not appeared in one of the compilations please contact me so I make sure your entry is properly entered into the contest and compilation.  
    The above is especially important this week as judging can now begin now that this compilation is up!

  • Story Submission Guidelines


    Thank you for considering Equestria Daily as the future home of your hard work. We’re honored that you want to showcase your story with us. In order to maximize your chances of getting published here, take the following rules to heart (really, they’re not as horrid as you’d think!):

    1) Edit your submission before sending it in.

    Submissions containing significant numbers of grammatical, mechanical, and/or spelling errors will be returned unread with a strike (see Rule 4). Also: please do not rely on the pre-readers for editing services or in-depth feedback. As we are uncompensated volunteers, we simply do not have the time or capacity to help every author improve their work.

    2) Ensure your story meets our length requirements.

    • — Multi-parters: 3,000+ words overall at submission time.
    • — One-shots (complete, one-part stories): 2,500+ words.

    3) We will not accept the following:
    • — X-rated content, including sexually transgressive or gorey stories
    • — Incest, foalshipping beyond a schoolyard crush, and other broad cultural taboos
    • — Humanized/anthro stories
    • — Avoid people from the fandom, famous or otherwise.
    • — Copy-paste stories (e.g. The text of Harry Potter with character names swapped out)
    • — Stories written in a language other than English
    • — No stories involving bronies.  -Human in Equestria on the other hand is alright.  
    • — No compilations of short stories.

    4) We have a three-strike rule.

    NO LONGER EXISTS

    5) Take a look at our Editor’s Omnibus.

    The first four points above are non-negotiable; we just highly recommend this last one. The Omnibus is a continuously updated guide that covers the common pitfalls and oversights of many novice authors, and even some more experienced writers might find some use from it. Give it a once-over and see if its words might help yours before you send us that email.

    6) Rejection based on other reasons

    Due to the ever-changing nature of fanfiction and the fandom as a whole, the pre-readers can and do reject things based on necessity.  Overpopulated crossovers, tropes that have been done way too many times.  EQD is primarily here to spotlight the best and most original stuff, we are not specifically a fanfiction website. 

    Does your fic meet all the requirements? Now go submit it!

    [Sad][Shipping] Derpydash? I guess! (Ignore the star rating above, use the tag) 

    Author: Azure Spark
    Description: Inspired by the song of the same name by the Silversun Pickups.

    All she needs is a shoulder to cry on. A friend, to listen, to understand, to comfort her.
    And that's what Derpy's getting, right?
    Or is it?
    Is it enough to act like a friend?

    This is the true test of a good friend. Can Derpy do what she knows is right? Or will she succumb to her torn emotions?

    What is the right thing to do?
