Hello!

Welcome to Alicorn-Alliance, a group dedicated to the awesome pony species in the My Little Pony franchise!


Why make a group dedicated to Alicorns?

Many people have received hate for their Alicorn characters; whether you're being accused of making a Mary-Sue, or someone claiming that Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are the only ones of their species.

The very fact is, ninety percent of the time, those accusations are false. There are bad OC's everywhere, whether they be Unicorns, Pegasi, or Earth ponies.

The reason we created this group was so that people who have Alicorn characters, or like Alicorns, may gather together in a group and not worry about "haters".


Why is this so important?

This is important because My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic supports love, tolerance, and being proud of who you are. Bronies are the very people who stray from the norm of society and are proud to be different, but how can we endorse the message FiM has taught us if we ridicule others who stray from the norm in our own community?

Our message is to tolerate and be respectful, no matter who. And people with Alicorn OC's often receive a lot of backlash.


Alright, but aren't Alicorns all-powerful god-like beings?

Actually, this accusation is false.

While Celestia and Luna are powerful beings, they are not gods, or all-powerful. In the first episode it is stated that they used their Unicorn Magic to raise the sun and moon. In the episode Hearth's Warming Eve, it is also stated that before Celestia and Luna came into the picture, the Unicorns were the ones who raised the sun and moon.

In fact, not all Alicorns have to be gods or princesses. Here is proof: fav.me/d56cy09


Alright then, but if there are "normal" Alicorns, how can you distinguish them from Celestia?

It's simple: Some of us prefer to call royal Alicorns or highly magically accomplished Alicorns, Celestials. Whereas "normal" Alicorns who are no more powerful than a regular Unicorn, or are the offspring of a Unicorn and Pegasus, we refer to as Earth Alicorns.

But that's not canon! Otherwise there would be more Alicorns!

No more or less canon than two Earth Ponies having Unicorn and Pegasi children. (See Mr. and Mrs. Cake.)

Do I have to have an Alicorn OC to join?

Nope! As long as you love Alicorns, you can join!

Are Changelings considered Alicorns?

Not technically, but they, like Alicorns, are out of the norm. They also have horns and wings, so why not have a folder dedicated to them? :D

My Artwork was denied, why?

This is most likely due to the fact that you have submitted to the wrong folder. It could also be because you traced, used a base, used the Pony Creator, or your artwork did not follow Group Rules (ex. Rule 34).

Rules?

  • No rule 34, or gory images. Nothing with mature tags.
  • Everyone's opinion is entitled, including our own. Any hate messages or any other disrespectful messages (from either side of the coin) will be hidden or marked as spam.
  • Photos of drawings are not permitted (but there are exceptions). Scans only!
  • No stolen, Traced work, or bases. Must be of your own free hand. Pixel images are the exception. Nothing from the Pony Creator.
  • Submit to the correct folders! If you do not, then your artwork will be denied on the spot.

  • Celestial and Royal Alicorn OCs: This folder is for Alicorns that are either very powerful, unusual, or royalty (dubbed as Celestials for short). They are not your average Alicorn. :D
  • Earth Alicorn OCs: This folder is for Alicorns who are not royalty, are not powerful, and seem like an average pony (for an Alicorn, that is ;)).
  • Princess Celestia: This folder is meant for the ruler of Equestria, Celestia.
  • Princess Luna: This folder is meant for the princess of the moon, Luna.
  • Nightmare Moon: This folder is for the nightmarish terror that is Nightmare Moon. :D

  • Faust: This folder is for Lauren Faust's ponysona, who is an Alicorn.
  • Main Six as Alicorns: This folder is for drawings that portray the main characters as Alicorns; Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Apple Jack, and Pinkie Pie. **NOTE** Twilight Sparkle has her own folder, now.

  • Canon Anthros and Humanized: This folder is meant for cannon Alicorn characters portrayed with a more humanized look.

  • Changelings: This folder is for changelings, and changeling OC's.
  • Comics and Memes: This folder is for popular memes and Comics related to My Little Pony.

  • Canon Two or More: If you have more than one canon character, this is where it belongs!
  • OC and Canon: If your OC is with a canon character, here it should be!
  • Cosplay: This one is pretty much self-explanatory. If it's a cosplay of an alicorn, fan character or cannon, it goes here!

Just as a suggestion, since I didnt see a gallery folder for it, some people create Alicorn based OC's, but are Batpony Alicorns. =P I know I have one drawn, might be an idea for a new folder!

In fact, not all Alicorns have to be gods or princesses. Here is proof: fav.me/d56cy09

I have a question concerning an alicorn oc of mine...here's all the information on him; prince eclipse is an born unicorn turned alicorn prince and brother to princess celestia and Luna. He was able to become an alicorn when he found out that he had residing strength over the sun and moon when they are on the verge of and combined into an eclipse, as per his name. He also obtained his cutie mark whic is an combination of celestia's and Luna's cutie mark, which makes an eclipse, after he tried to help them raise and lower the sun and moon. He also wanted to help them with their royal duties and to protect equestria, but failed as pertained from his discordification during discord's take over, and had a nasty brush in with sombra's dark fear magic. Then at the thousand year mark, Luna was banished to the moon as nightmare moon, which shooked eclipse to his core because she was the closest sibling that he had other than celestia. Then five hundred years later, before the events of the show, he finally goes crazy and becomes nightmare eclipse, basically the same thing as nightmare moon, except he has tell-tale signs of the discordification and dark magic that sombra uses. After being banished to the cave of darkness, and fails to escape, which results in his horn being deformed, he swore that he would have his revenge...now the question I'm gonna ask is this...would prince eclipse/nightmare eclipse be considered an royal/celestial alicorn, or an earth alicorn...?

I have a question. My fanfiction includes alicorns, three are main characters, but the rest are regular ponies. I also have a good bit of alicorn mythos going  on in some chapters. Could I submit it?
