Six Steps To Writing A Yaoi FanfictionStep One: Characters and Their RolesSix Steps To Writing A Yaoi Fanfiction2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
First thing you need to know is who the heck you’re even writing about. When picking a couple from any fandom, their canon relations generally don’t even matter in your fanfiction. They could be best friends, worst enemies or complete strangers. Crack pairing? Do it. I’ll get to how the hell it will make sense in a minute. Just choose a hot (or not) pairing already. Once you’ve got a pairing chosen, you just need to decide on their roles in the relationship.
Generally in most boyxboy couples there will be a dominant partner (known as the seme) and a submissive partner (known as the uke). So how do you know which is the seme or the uke? Well, most semes and ukes are identified by the following characteristics;
SEME: Shorter hair, taller, more masculine, smaller eyes, physically stronger or more athletic, protective, older, ‘macho’
UKE: Shorter, longer hair, more feminine than the seme, larger eyes, physicall
[Alpha] Sculpting Ponies FAQOver the years, I've been asked many questions on how I make my ponies through many different outlets (notes, comments, in person, etc). And through that time, I've been collating those questions in hopes of one day making an FAQ/tutorial with pictures and demos for anyone interested in sculpting. However since then, I haven't gotten around to finishing all the questions nor editing them nor polishing them. Frankly, I don't think I ever will. So instead, I'm opting to publish them somewhat raw. Most of them are copypasta's of questions I've answered in some form, others I've gone back and actually polished them to be more coherent. You'll notice some duplicates with slightly different information, the context may be missing, or that some of the questions are left unanswered or half answered but that is how it appears in the document. Also, the names of the questioners have been removed. Either way, this is only a fraction of the questions I've collated so far, and depending on how this[Alpha] Sculpting Ponies FAQ1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Tips for Improving and Enriching Your Writing
Know the fundamentals of writing. If you don't know these or need help with them look copy and paste this link into your adress bar http://magicuser5656.deviantart.com/art/Things-Everyone-Should-Know-About-Writing-286645736
Know your audience. You need to be aware of the audience your writing is targeted towards. You'd never catch a zoologist using a children's picture book to learn about zebras!
Have an engaging opening sentence. This is your big chance at getting the reader interested after the title, and possibly a description! Use it well.
Shorter can be better. Shorter paragraphs, shorter sentences. A sentence doesn't have to be a run-on sentence to be considered too long. If your writing becomes too long you may loose the interest of some of your readers. Think short and sweet, but keep in mind short sentences make time fly by. Having longer sentences will slow tim

Chapter 2: The Worries of Sisters
Dusk had descended upon Equestria once again, and Celestia dismissed herself from her duties for the day. The princesses rarely had a day truly free from their duties. They had to move the celestial orbs as always, and both had a strong sense of duty to their people. There were, however, days that they each enjoyed more so than usual. And today had been one such day for Princess Celestia.
“Shall I have your sunshine cake delivered to your private chambers, Your Highness?” The head of the royal kitchens asked, trotting beside the towering Princess of the Day. She let out a small chuckle, giving the stout earth pony an appreciative smile.
“Thank you, Bon Appétit, but that won't be necessary,” she replied, “I should like to eat the cake in the Room of Reclining this evening. I want to commune with my sister.”
He glanced up at her, looking a touch concerned.

Reach For the Stars Part 2
Written By ItsFromPeople
I remembered the time when I was a small colt and I had asked Cadence to marry me once we were older.
(Interviewer's Notes (Pegasus): You asked her WHAT?)
Well, I was still a colt and had just found out about how marriages and family lines were arranged a few centuries ago by nobles. I had learned how certain bloodlines should be brought together and adding an Alicorn into my bloodline would surely make Lady Pure… I mean mother proud. Instead my cousin slapped me.
I fell to the ground as Cadence stood there, looking down on me.
"Are you crazy? You're stuck-up, cowardly, rude and only think about yourself. I wouldn't marry you in a thousand years!"
"How can you dare… Oh, I forgot, you are the expert in love and spread love all over the last royal event, even to Princess Celestia herself."
I slowly rose from the ground starring daggers at the young Alicorn. She staggered away

Don't get too extravagant with this. Description of appearance is one of the most commonly overdone things with OCs. Keep it simple no one will remember a word you say if you describe everything from the shape of his/her nose to the color of his/her toenails. Also, keep this within the realm of the fandom. In a fandom where characters all have naturally colored hair, it would be strange if your character had naturally pink hair.
Do note the weapon depends on the fandom, the age, the time, the place, etc. Your character may also not have weapons, it all depends. If your character does have a weapon, what type of weapon it is depends largely on the fandom. For example, it would be quite bizarre if your Rurouni Kenshin OC used a light saber as a weapon. And it would be a plot-hole

when I say keep walking I shouldn’t have to ask,
for you to move along and advert your eyes,
which seem to be stuck on my bare thighs,
my skin doesn’t give you the right to hoot and holler,
like some cat prowling in the midnight hour,
and no I do not feel flattered,
when you talk about climbing me like a new bought ladder,
so would you be so kind and advert your gaze,
and dirty comments would you refrain.
My body isn’t here for you to fanaticize,
this isn’t a game with me as the prize,
the skirt I wear isn’t an invitation,
for you to go ahead with your vile recreation.
I shouldn’t be scared to dress as I want,
yet when showing skin you think that I flaunt,
around my body for your eyes to trace,
the pain from you I can never erase,
when your dirty taunts turn to actions,
and you violate me in the lie you call passion.
I shouldn’t have to be bundled in sweaters,
dressed to the neck in all

How much can I change from a Qwuedeviv’s base appearance?
A Qwuedeviv essentially looks like a noseless cat with some fish like attributes—that is ‘normal’ for a Qwuedeviv. There are others on occasion but such oddities are rare and should be used as such when creating.
Can I make a Qwuedeviv that isn't from Qwuh-9?
Some still live on their original home planet in an entirely different lifestyle--more as intelligent pets. These Qwuedeviv travel with their alien owners. As an overall though, all Qwuedeviv start their lives on Qwuh-9 aside from extremely rare occasions.

Starlit nights no longer seen, gloom appears instead.
Behold the judgment from of old, no place left to hide.

Tribulation approaches, religion's fate is sealed.
Commercialism's failure, forever now unveiled.

(2) 2 Medium skeins will cover leg and arm warmer needs (color variations vary the amount used)
(3) Tail belts should never be more than 3 shades, and always wide enough to fit over your hips (its easier just to slip them n using a double knot than tying them every time and worrying that they'll slip off)
(4) Yarn left over from wig and warmer construction can be used to make the tail belt and shoulder fluff
(5) If 'Prom' gloves aren't handy, 'princess' dress up gloves from children's play sets can be used, or (if you have the skill), one can be made from an old knee sock or a stretchy shirt.

From atop his broken throne, a single lonely pony sat hunched over as he scanned the ramshackle ruins of the room that represented the seat of power in all of Equestria – or what was left of it. This pony was known by his many 'adoring' subjects as King Solace, the last in the line of Alicorns who could proudly trace their lineage back to the Royal Sisters Celestia and Luna. What had become of them was anyone's guess, and only begrudgingly did he decide to forcibly take their throne in their absence in order to save a nation.
That was long ago, and more than 1000 years had passed since that time.
He shook his head slowly; his Milky Way mane and beard cascading and flowing gently down his face. His arctic night coat complimented his shimmering mane with muted brilliance; a physical reminder to some that he did have something in common with the Royal Sisters of legend. But that's all that they were now: legends.

Other Names: 'Devivs, Alien Kitties
The Qwuedeviv learn new languages pretty fast. Their own language is more dependent on tone than the spoken word, thus when learning other languages, sometimes they will toss together utter nonsense as long as their tone is conveying how they feel about something.
Overview: Qwuedeviv are an androgynous race of aliens who share many feline and shark-like qualities. They tend to adapt their appearance based on their environment.
Detailed View: Qwuedeviv are morphing creatures in their younger stages. Up until adolescence, their appearance largely depends on their environment. This includes things ranging from the shape of their limbs and appendages, height, outer skin layer density and much more.
For example, those who live in more humid regions tend to have very minimal fur if any and tough, rubbery skin. T
