• Writer's Training Grounds #010: "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies"

    (EDIT: Now featuring a less-horrible deadline.)

    I dunno how many times I've used MysticAlpha's art for post headers by now, but I'm sure they don't mind the attention. Nice thing you did with the grass back there, boss!

    Sorry for missing the past two weeks, everyone! Let's give it up for Seth for covering my plot while I pretended my life was miserable (though it kinda was (but really wasn't)). Gonna try to make that up to y'all tonight by giving you not one, but three prompts to choose from. Indeed, one pony should not have this much power, ever.

    Hit the break for the prompts and the rules, and happy writing!

    The first academic paper on breezies gets published in Equestria's foremost research journal. Controversy engulfs the land soon after...

    After safely escorting the breezies home, Fluttershy also receives a mysterious book from Seabreeze to take home with her. What she finds inside of it...

    Something went wrong, and now the Mane 6 are sealed on the other side of the portal! Somebreezie lets slip about an emergency exit, long forgotten...

    If all else fails, just turn Rainbow Dash into whatever she wants to be.

    Da Rulez:

    • Keep the content appropriate as defined by our submission guidelines.
    • Keep it between 1,000 - 7,000 words. >Greentexts and doorstoppers should apply elsewhere!
