• Nightly Roundup #1459


    It's cool that we have some new friends to add to the cast, but one thing I always worry about with FiM is that with such an expansive cast whether or not they are able to give the characters enough screen time to do them justice. Hopefully the rest of season 8 plays out well!

    News time guys, get it all after the break.

    P E T R I F I E D [GrimDark, Horror MLP: FIM Fan Fiction Reading]




    "Personal blurb: "You don't see many fanfictions with Maud as a character at all, let alone *readings* of such fanfictions. This is the first I've seen of a horror written with her as the principal character, as well as the narrator. This sinister Maud story differs greatly from similar horrors involving her sister Pinkie Pie: no gore in this horror, for one thing, and I think the narrative's cleanliness makes the story all the more chilling."

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More



    Composer Seeking Lyricist or Existing Projects


    I'm a musician and songwriter seeking a co-writer, particularly someone experienced in writing lyrics, who is interested in writing some original MLP songs. My aim is to put together some one-off songs in a range of different styles, from jazz to ballads to Broadway to music hall.

    I'm also interested in joining any new or existing projects that require a composer or arranger!

    For co-writers, someone with instrumental knowledge is preferred but not required. While I've primarily handled composition and orchestration (rather than lyrics) for MLP songs in the past, I'm flexible as to how we share musical and lyrical duties or whether we each handle one half of the equation. If you are interested, please send an email to [email protected] Hope to hear from you soon!
