• The New Conversion Bureau Compilation Post

    Welcome to the special one year anniversary edition of the Conversion Bureau Compilation Post!

    The Conversion Bureau started life as a short, currently unfinished fanfic by Blaze which you can find here. It has since spawned a plethora of sidefics; the newest and freshest of which are published in this post.

    This post only features new or updated fics since the last update, but fear not! You can find more information or old favourites at:
    Check the new stories out after the break! I saved the best for first lol.

    • All the stories in this post completely skip the pre-readers. Quality levels vary from excellent to not so excellent, but that isn't really the point. Ponies really love the Conversion Bureau, and taking a part of the world for themselves to build a story around is just great fun.
    • If you find any broken links or have any other problems or questions, toss me (Midnight Shadow) an email with "conversion bureau" in the subject somewhere.

    But sometimes things don't die very easily. Sometimes things linger, even if it's just a memory or a legend. Sometimes when an egregious injustice has been left unchecked, even a pony can get very angry.

    On the crew of the White Rose there are many such angry ponies, led by Firebrand. These are young students who have perceived an injustice and are determined to blow everything open with one blazing truth.
