Welcome + SUPER CUTE TELVERSE DRAWING I NEED YOU ALL TO SEE RIGHT NOW IMMEDIATELY
Just wanted to make a quick blogpost to thank everyone who’s followed me here ;-; Leaving Fimfic was one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do recently, and my heart is so full at the support I got, and at how you decided to follow me here…
So! I guess I just wanted to welcome you all, and use this as a way to hopefully test out the e-mailing system again. Which… I guess I don’t know if it counts as a test because if people don’t get the alert, then we won’t know, and I guess this would be useless BUT WHATEVER.
I’m also here because I am going to be STUPIDLY SELF-INDULGENT TEL!VERSE AND SHOW OFF THIS COMMISSION I JUST GOT FROM THE AMAZING DAWNFIRE SO HERE IT IS
IT’S THEM,,, WITH THEIR LITTLE HYPOTHETICAL KIDDOS,,,
I always really debate doing stuff like this because it’s technically spoilers?? but I’ve also decided I don’t really care anymore, because I love thinking about this, and also anyone who knows me knows I always make sure everything will be okay in the end.
ANYWAY!! I love all my AUs, but TEL!verse RariTwi has a very special place in my heart because of Twilight specifically. Just… She spent 1000 years thinking she deserved nothing but the worst, and that she doesn’t deserve happines, and just the idea of her getting happiness in the future… and knowing she deserves it and she deserves to be HAPPY… THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT, MAN!!!
I know my stories can be hard to get through sometimes, and tough stuff happens, but it’s because the tough times make these silly things feel so goddamn satisfying. Especially for Twilight, who’s just… tried so hard and grown so much and part of the reason I love the ending of TEK so much because THEY FOUGHT FOR THEIR HAPPY ENDING,,, AND THEY GOT IT,,,
Look, okay, I just really love TEL!verse purple girlfriends, and I’ve missed being happy with the story, and I’ve missed that universe, and I’m just so happy to be here on my website away from negativity and just able to do silly shit like this which is sharing my headcanons and little images ;-;
Also for people interested, the one booping Rarity is Lavender, and Amethyst (Amy) is the one with Twi. They were designed by Earthsong9408, originally for my Parent Trap!AU, but I ended up becoming so fond of them that I’ve made them canon for future TEL!verse.
Anyway, that’s it for now! And just a small reminder that if you log in on the top right corner of the website, you can attach your discord or other accounts for tracking what you’ve read, and just to make it easier for commenting!
The Enchanted CarouselOnce upon a time, there was a mare who did not believe in fairytales, and a very different mare who did not believe in herself. Their lives intertwined, weaving together a fairytale like no other, filled with chaos and love, friends and enemies, adventures and tragedies. A fairytale they felt would last forever. But it couldn’t.

Hey….as someone who just found you, I look forward to reading your works. Sorry about the fimfiction community….
Also, is there any way to PM you? I have a question that is too sensitive for the comments section.
If you go to the guestbook (it should be in the blog tabs on the navigation), you can leave a comment there and you can mark it as private (in this case, only I and my website admin would see it; my admin is super discreet and trust-worthy).
Dear monochromatic. I’ve just signed up to your website and may I say it is very impressive. So far, i’ve only seen the picture artists who create their own websites, but you’re probably on of the first artists to post STORIES on their own websites, which is saying a lot. Also, I just started on your journey of raritwi, and they are indeed very adorable together. I’ve heard great things about your works, and I can’t wait to see how everything goes.
I wish I could give you just love and hugs, and I would hate myself if I were the first to break the cuteness around this delicate place, but there is a question in my mind for a while that I’d like to have an answer to . Here’s a note, you don’t have to answer if you feel offended, this is just a young student rambling, trying to understand the wonderful fandom. Please don’t take it personally.
Here’s the question. Do you consider your stress on the other website (you know which one)something that just happens in every fandom, is it because of the websites personal problem, or is it just a problem that arises when one gets too famous? Seriously, there are several artists on at websites that are very talented and they just do left and turn to other places. Seriously, the author of The Mare Who Once Lived on the Moon claimed that it feels unsafe there. Feeling unsafe is one of the least things I thought I would hear in this fandom. It’s the where people are supposed to be friendly and they feel unsafe. I really don’t want to see that happen again. After all, despite its flaws, you can’t deny that its probably the best fanfiction website yet, and I don’t want to see its issues drive more people away. But if we’re going to solve this problem, we need to get to the bottom of it.(Why didn’t I ask it anywhere else? I can’t. This is the first successful communication attempt so far.)
If you made it this part of my message, thank you for lending an ear. It would mean a lot if you could offer your opinion. And sorry again for breaking the serenity of this adorable, not-so-little website. Keep in mind that no matter what happens, there will always be more people who love you. If you just try your best to let the characters write themselves and have fun exploring the world you create, you won’t leave any regrets!
Thank you for signing up! That means a lot!
Re: your question, it’s… complicated.
Personally, for me, it’s a bit of both. The fact that I was ‘famous’ in the community made me feel a lot more pressured to write Perfect Stories, which in turn made it very discouraging for me to write. I started writing because I wanted validation, instead of the reason I’d originally started writing for, which is just because I love doing it. It’s the same reason I didn’t move to a different fanfiction website, for example, and instead I’m in my own little bubble. I just want to write for the sake of it, right now, in a place where I don’t need to be worried about stats and readership and etc etc.
The other thing is that Fimfiction.net has had a lot of drama happen in the past few years with its moderating team, and the website allows people to post what I (and what Mr. Numbers) consider to be… just very damaging fiction. Nazi/Racism stuff and purposefully bad-faith stories. Ultimately, I can’t control what is allowed to be posted on the website, and as a user it’s not my place, but I decided I didn’t want to continue going to a website where the owner was okay with not taking a stand against the rampant nazi problems plaguing a lot of the facets of the fandom.
Unfortunately, a lot of these issues are things you don’t know unless you follow certain people, or are really updated with fandom goings and moderating issues, so for many readers, it just went under the radar.
so yeah! That’s mostly it in a very summarized way. I didn’t agree with the decisions and choices of the people in charge of the website, so I decided to remove myself from it.
I hope this answered your question!
I’ll have to figure all the kinks out and such but…
LOOKIT THOSE SMOL PURPLE BABBIES I LOVE THEM
heeee SAME… THEY’RE SO GOOD….
My heart is so full! Not just for this image though, which is a whole nother level of heartwarming and adorable, but also for your move here. This just seems like such a healthy and good thing, and I’m really happy for you, Mono. I’m excited for the future.
That artwork is hhhhh
Also, is there some sort of ref for the two kiddos? We can see Lavender’s full design but for Amethyst, her body isn’t visible. Just asking cuz I feel like drawing them sometime.
Oh my gosh!
I have a question about emails, actually. So, when I came here and logged in through Discord, I made my subscription list. I made a comment, and got an email when it was approved, but not when you replied. I didn’t subscribe to blog posts at the time. Do email notifications only go out for replies when it’s on something that I’m subscribed to?
Also, wow, that art is adorable
Hi JMP! I’m not super sure about that. I’ll check in with Tetra today and hopefully have an answer for you soon.
There are no notifications for comment replies (and with authentication, you only need to be approved once). While this is possible, it is currently turned off. If people really want that tho, I can reconsider turning it on.
Aww! And hey, still glad you’re doing what’s best for you.
Can confirm, email works fine.
And thank you for confirming!
Dawnfire has such a way with making things look so cute and cuddly
She does! I’m very lucky I’ve been able to commission her so much.
