Welcome to MLP-Literature. This is a group where you can view, recommend and submit literature, based around the My Little Pony universe. MLP-Literature is a collection group as well as creation group so all are welcome even if you aren't a writer, if you like the works we showcase then we would be happy to have you!
If you're here because you missed an invite, it was probably only to open an invite slot for someone else. So if we ever we invited you, we would probably be happy to have you, all members are accepted automatically! Invites are usually sent to those who showed favour to work we have featured here.
Alright, I am saddened to announce that this is my and ~Radoxeald final day as cofounders of the group. I've been in the upper echelons of the group since the very beginning, and Radow joined not long after. I've watched it go from a ragtag band of members, to a flourishing community in the glory days of the poetry contest, to the petering out of interest, to the recent revitalization at the hands of *KeenOnPinkie and =Fyresale. Unfortunately, I can no longer devote the proper attention the group deserves, and so I hand it on to the new cofounders. My hope is that the group will continue to reach unprecedented heights at their hands. Also, they're from Finland and the US respectively so there's not really any change in that regard. xD
But farewell, my time here has been truly great. I've met many fantastic people in this group, and forged unforgettable memories. You still have ~youpickmyname, who, try as he might to deny it, is the driving force behind the group and one of the original four. He is a superb founder. I leave you with this verse from the Kalevala, with the departure of Väinämöinen.
Now I end my measured singing, Bid my weary tongue keep silence, Leave my songs to other singers. Horses have their times of resting After many hours of labor; Even sickles will grow weary When they have been long at reaping; Waters seek a quiet haven After running long in rivers; Fire subsides and sinks in slumber At the dawning of the morning Therefore I should end my singing, As my song is growing weary, For the pleasure of the evening, For the joy of morn arising.
Now, here's the final farewell from Radoxeald.
“First of all, my 18 months on this group have been many ways inseparable from my time in the fandom. I joined the group only months after joining the herd, and have seen so much wonderful art, great fanfics and hilarious comics, and met some great guys here (not to mention the exposure to my own stuff ^^). Joining the admin team was an honor, and even when falling to routine I at least wanted to keep the wheels rollin’.
“Main reason for my leave is the change in priorities. I’m still in the fandom and follow ponies, mind you, but over the last months I’ve practically retired from writing MLP stuff and focused on other hobbies and studying. I don’t have the drive to keep going like this anymore, and I’d rather go back to being a follower for now.
“It has been wonderful time, and I wish great future for all of you. Cue the final song.”
