At least you knew going into it that the writefag was dead, right?
H-haha, it's not like you read through it, got to the end, and realized that it hasn't been updated since 2012, right?
That would really suck, wouldn't it, huh?
Haha

The notion that every single character is gay is as ludicrous and tiresome as every character being straight. If you're writing a straight shipping/smut fic though, you don't really have an obligation to explore the sexuality of unimportant characters in pursuit of being 'inclusive'. Gay fics technically have the same freedom, but since homosexuality is considered unusual or taboo irl, it's seen as a little strange if you don't address how the world of Equestria views such relationships. The safest option is to just have everyone be fine with it, but too often the world will be written as primarily gay and aggressively accepting.

fucking this
>Reading fanfic about twilight being addicted to anons cum
>its actually got pretty good character development, and its got 15 chapters
>read through all 15
>plenty of lewd shit
>whole time its implied its bad for her some how, never specified why
>last chapter just has her falling into a void or some shit
>its like the writer just gave up
for like 12/15 chapters is was lewd cute and cuddly, so i give him respect for that, it just pisses me off, if he had ended it on some bullshit like she got pregnant and her and anon end up having a shit ton of foals i would have been way happier

id be fine with a sad ending even, but this just leaves more questions than answers, basically almost an entire chapter of fluff to imply she died or something, its never even said

i dont know its the only fanfic thats ever had an ending that got me angry

Writefagging kinda sucks, especially when you're writing something long that updates over multiple days/weeks. I can understand why someone would just rush it to the end so that they can finally be finished with it.
>>
>>31372364
Plan in advance and write short bits daily. Just look at Imploding Colon at fimfiction, he gets tens of thousands of (You)'s.

Except gays are very much outnumbered by straights in the real world, so unless your verse's setting is different in that regard, the latter is much more plausible than the former.

youre exactly like me anon
I had a green in the man/mare thread going but i abandoned that, for the time being anyway
eventually i want to have something i can post on Fimfiction, so i can at least say i contributed SOMETHING

it is as the old saying goes, those who can draw, do and those who cannot, write
>>
>>31372280
Exactly!

>>31372316
Link to story?
>>
>>31372375
I was planning in advance, but keeping those plans on track over days, weeks even, when you've got criticism and suggestions coming in from your readers, all while your mind is churning with new ideas, isn't easy.
And when you get an idea for a completely different green that you would rather be writing than the obligation that you've been keeping thus far, the original story is practically already in the grave.
>>
>>31372401
the name is "Twilight is addicted to anons cum"

i thought it was on fimfiction but i cant find it, the author is X-Roads if that helps
>>
>>31372398
>those who can draw, do and those who cannot, write
This Is exactly why I wrote stories for /mlp/-tan and /d/-tan. I wanted to draw cute lesbian antics for days, but could only write it out.

I don't mind romance to be honest, but she handles it so poorly. Pre-curse it's googly eyes and flirty quips and curse during it's hyperventilation and hair-ripping hysteria.

The romance would've worked better if it was an underlying element.
>>
>>31372521
This so much. Don't know how many stories I dropped due to "lore".
>>
>>31372617
Ugh, it has lesbian shit since chapter one. She leaves the stable to pursue of her lesbo crush.
>>
>>31373088
>>31372617
Would have been even better without the constant need to shove it in your face that she's gay. The random, shitty and not at all funny banter about her being gay and having sex that makes the parts unbearably awkward to read.
