Aww poo, my pony OC didn't make the list ;~;

Your character falls flat due to lack of back story or just lack of character of general and yours seems to be this average Twitch girl playing games
Beltar

you have declared everything else, including Fluff Puff, shit


Speaking about "factual" I said that I've no idea about anybody below Nyx in the list and I don't care. Just because a character of full-length novel requires much complex design than somebody's OC created for short comix and etc.

including Fluff Puff


OK what's so good in Fluffle Puff beside been a moving heap of wool?

you have very unique, particular, and picky tastes


No I just call things by their names. Moving heap of wool is just moving heap of wool and random OC without perconality somebody created for random comics is just random OC without personality. I've nothing against a pony been moving heap of wool but I hate when people force such characters via countless shit "jokes".

95-99% of fan-made or indy animattion pretend to be heartfelt and cute. But I prefer nuclear explosion in "Sonic Rainboom". And that's why we read fan-fics they can suggest something that official sources can not or when they try to do that it always looks like attempt to play "Hamlet" in elementary school theater.


And looking at some of your other replies…
So what you're saying is that you have very unique, particular, and picky tastes in your sense of entertainment, and guided by the wisdom of non-factual opinion of taste, you have declared everything else, including Fluff Puff, shit. And your proof to back this up is that they don't fit your niche of entertainment?

It's a joke. The idea is that Past Sins being the only fic you consider English-language Literature must be as a result of some past trauma, because it's widely considered mediocre at best and there are much, much better stories out there. Such as anything by Georg, or perhaps "The Mare Who Once Lived On the Moon" by MrNumbers. To each their own, though.


1) "If you're so smart where is your money?" "Past Sins" is well-know fic. "The Mare Who Once Lived On the Moon" Well this is the 1st time I see that tittle. OK let's go check out… 2500 Likes. Even lets say "The Enchanted Library" performs better but I don't consider it as a professional work. Why not to remember at least "Hard Reset" which is excellent and has 7500 likes? The only problem it's very small because it's plot predefines fragmentary style. Or even "Background Pony" with 6.4k likes but reading it was a tough expirience for me.

BTW I didn't find any fic with more than 500 likes with Hysterical Horse.

2) Why "Past Sins" works? Because of it's surrealistic mix of childish and adult and because it's perfect where it must be perfect. And it balance perfectly between epic-story of god-like char who created disaster in fantasy world and everyday life. (Something that "Background Pony" lacks raising constant "Why you write about this shitty OC I don't care about? Move the plot forward!") If you don't see it well no matter how good the book is there always will be somebody who proclaims it bad and no matter how it's bad there always will be somebody who proclaims it good.

And if we talk about full-length fic-novels from the top of the list (say 2000+ likes) then I must admit that near all of them which I read are mediocre. At this time I've only 3 exceptions that really touched me: "Past Sins", "Hard Reset" and Russian "The Broken Toy" which is not available in English (the last time I checked there was about 1/3 translated).

You: Nyx — "Past Sins" is the only English-lunguage fic I consider as literature.

Me: Who hurt you?

You: Hysterical Horse sir! But I don't see her here. So why you're asking?

Will be true for any good story.
the operative word here is "just." many good stories follow a well-known template, but in my opinion, past sins doesn't do much more than that. that's all I'm trying to say. there's nothing wrong with you liking it. it's just how I felt about it.

Everything in story-telling was invented at least in Ancient Greece.

Will be true for any good story. Just name any any there will be well-knows template. Everything in story-telling was invented at least in Ancient Greece. Most of possible problems in storytelling rise from not following this guide. And that's why cliché actually work. They just must be performed correctly. Something that worked in "Past Sins" and Nyx as a character is completelly natural for Equestrian universe. As a first approximation she can be compared with superhero characters and while they always need some crutches for their existance and motivations Nyx simply fits her role of a god-like character in very strange and surrealistic situation.

fluffle puff is… okay. dan vs. puff was better than chrysapuff you can't change my mind.

littlepip's story was tedious, poorly described, using cheap narrative techniques, with way too much emphasis on the supposed hubris of ponies, bad ends, and how awful and evil sex is except lesbians. she's… a generic troubled badass, and an obvious self-insert.

snowdrop is a bland woobie, whose creators obviously constructed her only to emotionally manipulate people into loving her. and they were bad at it.
snowblind >>>>>>> snowdrop

nyx is a bland woobie, whose story is tripe, and I hope the author was in high school when they wrote it b/c it reads like they just followed a how-to-construct-story guide. pony quarantine really improved on her character though.

apogee is identifiable and interesting, and her story is compelling and heartwarming. I can truly adore this cheerful space pone. the remake isn't as impactful, but is still pretty nice.

I don't like any fandom OC is not a pony.

brownie bun has an uninspired story straight out of newspaper comic corporate pro-family propaganda, which tjpones manages to make totally awesome because he is also best pony.

cream heart is… okay? yadda yadda pro-family propaganda, there isn't much to her other than: I live to be a wonderful mother AS YOU ALL SHOULD OR YOU ARE FAILURES. it's cute when she stops being a mom to play gamez tho

blackjack is a littlepip ripoff that's even more tedious and dragging, even more wallowing in bad ends and pony hubris, and even more despising of sex except stygius

milky way is charming and affectionate, the sort of neighbor I would love to have. her creator's not trying to hide their milking fetish too much, but they also have a knack for sympathetic, believable characters.

other is way underrated.

echo (representing other grey bats) is a boring character whose only defining qualities is she is a grey bat pony and she seems cheerful. she's still adorable when obsessing over mangoes.

anonfilly varies, obviously. from insipid and disturbingly unempathetic, to outlandishly sassy and daring, to adorably childish. she is proof that ponies make everything better.

I don't know who spotlight splash is. sounds fruity.

why is other fallout equestria pony a category?

delta vee's good for the same reasons as apogee, since they're two parts to the same story. remove the adorable and add sassy, hopeless and terribly hurt. she's a lot more heart wrenching than snowdrop.

still no idea who sweet velvet is.

bay breeze is the personal OC of someone who seems to have a funloving and carefree personality, with the maturity of someone who's seen the evils of the world and grown past them. also she's hot.

wheely bopper is proof that this vote count was secretly inverted. her being second-to-last is not scientifically possible. she has the most votes and fluffle puff has the least.

WAIT NO PILLOW CASE HAS THE MOST VOTES SHE IS BEST YAY PILLY CASE

my ranking is:

* delta vee
* apogee
* filly anon
* brownie bun
* wheely bopper
* pillow case
* bay breeze
* flufflepuff
* echo
* cream heart
* nyx
* littlepip
* blackjack
* snowdrop

I'm noticing a trend with these results. It appears the most popular OCs tend to have animations which is something Nyx is rather lacking in. Some proper videos similar to slice of life Fluffle Puff might boost those numbers up. Not to claim stupidity but most of the fandom are probably more casual and would benefit from more readily digestable content as opposed to a long fic like past sins.

Who hurt you?


Hysterical Horse sir! But I don't see her here. So why you're asking?

Do you know something we don't? :o


I've another picture to upload later.

In comparison "Past Sins" and FoE I can say that "Past Sins" has better overall approval. And it has more likes on FiMFiction but FoE always had more derivative content.

Snowdrop was a pretty big fucking deal when the cartoon dropped. It was heartfelt and cute


95-99% of fan-made or indy animattion pretend to be heartfelt and cute. But I prefer nuclear explosion in "Sonic Rainboom". And that's why we read fan-fics they can suggest something that official sources can not or when they try to do that it always looks like attempt to play "Hamlet" in elementary school theater.
