Authors and Websites

Tabby and Strawberry's Dream Valley
  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Synopsis: Much like Lady Moondancer's works, this site's fanfictions offer a completely different perspective on how Ponyland works and where they've expanded the world into different cities and regions. Some of their work is not very child friendly, but they have a system in place for warning against that.
  • Many of their fanfictions were hosted on the webzine, My Little Pony Monthly, which has since ended and lost its original hosting. Tabby &Strawberry now hosts it as well here.

My Little Pony Lexicon

  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Synopsis: This is a message board almost entirely entirely dedicated to hosting My Little Pony fanfictions. They come in literally every variety. Warning: some are NSFW, but they use a rating system (G, PG, R) to warn readers. So you always know what you're getting into.

Worlds Apart by Flying Pony

  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Synopsis: Ladies and centlecolts, the ultimate Massive Multiplayer Crossover My Little Pony fanfic. It starts out in the Tales-verse and things go from there. An alicorn filly is found and raised by muggles. The only magic she has learned is how make herself look like an ordinary Earth Pony like the others. She is unaware of her past and true destiny. Well, some visitors from "out of town" are going to make sure she's made aware of both very soon.
  • It can also be viewed in comic format here.

The works of Lady Moondancer

  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Synopsis: This author, on the other hand, is a long standing fan of the original 80s continuity and wrote several fanfictions that further expanded and explained the world of Ponyland while poking fun at the 80s cartoon in the process, but affectionately so. She completely averted the Lady Land rule and had several ponies actually be stallions, including Applejack. It should go without saying that this is a very different and more realistic spin than what was presented in the show. Some of the stories even delve into the originals of Ponyland, itself, while others get Darker and Edgier like no one else's business.
    • You can find a reserved version of her old site for more of her works here.

A Pair of Little Ponies by dragonfang33
  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A simple little tale in which Fizzy and Wind Whistler watch the sunset together and the latter begins acting distance. Fizzy however just won't let that stand.

Faded Memories by JelloStar

  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An elderly Megan thinks back on the days of her youth when she rode on the backs of the little ponies. Old yearnings that cannot be attained awakened in the aged Keeper of the Rainbow. It has a sequel here.

My Little Pony: Arachnis the Captor by Al-1701

  • Recommended by: MyLittleRaptor
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A new threat has come to Ponyland, Arachnis, an ancient evil that has more returned to take over the world. Now it's up to Wind Whistler and Fizzy to save the day with some help from Forced Transformation friends on an epic quest. It is very much a classic-style adventure story much in line with the best that the 80s series had to offer.

My Little Pony Chronicles, Book 1 by WeirdRaptor

Another Rainbow in Another Sky by Annie D

  • Recommended by Pichu, Red-Dead-Redeemer
  • Synopsis: Megan grew up.
  • Status: Complete
  • Comments: It's rare to find pre-G4 fics, and even rarer still to find such good fics. It's a decent sized fic - maybe a little on the long side for a oneshot - that focuses on an adult Megan. It has some Crossover elements but it's quite mild.

The Curse of Beauty by High Queen Tiffany

  • Recommended by Andyroid
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tall Tales regales his fellow ponies with a story of why beauty pageants have been banned for generations in Ponyland. It all started with a reckless promise made by a prince, and six reckless wishes made by six princesses...

The My Little Pony Stories by Plonq

  • Recommended by: Bolt_DMC
  • Synopsis: A collection of My Little Pony stories.
  • Status: Individual entries complete
  • The author’s stories thus far present the adventures of the Mane Six and friends. They showcase this writer’s signature tongue-in-cheek dry wit, mastery of genre parody, polished writing style, and thoughtful storytelling in a wide range of approaches from cheerful to spooky to absurd. Characterizations are spot-on and vibrant. Well worth reading. Three completed multi-chapter entries currently exist:
    • “My Little Golem:” Dark-comedy horror, with the emphasis on humor and the absurd. Twilight Sparkle dabbles in forbidden magic, playing Frankenstein to create an assistant for Spike. Things naturally go awry.
    • “A Question of Friendship:” A sweet shipping fic with plenty of humor and a dash of tartness. Confusion surrounds the identity of Rainbow Dash’s latest crush, which she discusses at length with Twilight Sparkle.
    • “The Apple of Her Dreams:” Humor, horror, surrealism, and a touch of sadness permeate this dark-comedy fic. Applejack has been having weird dreams, all showing the hoof of Princess Luna as a common element.
