I've never written fanfiction before so I was thinking I could use some tips. Anything I should know about publishing on Fimfiction? What is some of the main fanfiction of MLP: I'm talking about things like Nyx or the Lunar Republic. What groups I should join on Fimfiction? Is this even the best spot for advice on this topic? So that's it.
@Penguinbrony24 As they say, plans are useless but the value of planning cannot be underestimated. That said, some genres really do require you to have the entire story planned before you start filling in the prose.
I would like to start simple with slice of life. I'm interested in exploring different characters and their relationships. Like maybe why Rarity just doesn't tell Spike that he has no chance with her. Or how Rarity and AJ used to be friends turned rivals in school. Or maybe Rarity being genuinly fascinated in Spike's comics and urges him on to be a comic artist.
These aren't always going to be completely in character, but I want to explore different situations of these characters according to my own headcanons, although I would still want them in character for the most part only deviating when necessary. But if I need to I might even try do AU retellings of certain characters.
I have other plans for the future. Like a TV-PG retelling of the MLP series with a more dramatic and emotional tone to it.
