    A Timeline of MPLT's Equestria

    This is the general, personal canon timeline surrounding the stories of Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight, covering the past of Equestria. All years are given in BD (Before Discord) or AD (After Discord), given that Discord's reign over Equestria is one of, if not the defining moment that divides Equestria from being ruled by ponies to being ruled by the god-like Princesses. A general description of each era will be included.

    BD 1000(?)-600  - The Pre-Classical Era

    Though many documents have been lost to history, those that remain describe the early Pre-Classical Era as a harsh time, as the Three Tribes of pony-kind were greatly at odds with each other. Around the mid-point, however, the Time of Ice occurred, as the Windigos assaulted the old pony lands and froze them under a blanket of ever-lasting winter. This lead to the expeditions commonly depicted in Hearth's Warming Eve pageants, as well as the kindling of the Fire of Friendship and the subsequent banishment of the Windigos. Those that remained of the Three Tribes founded Equestria, carving out a country out of the bountiful, but untamed land they had discovered.

    BD 599-1 - The Classical Era

    The time before Discord's arrival saw the flowering of early pony society, as the three tribes were merged into a single conglomerate culture due to both proximity, intermarriage between the tribes and reaction to the events of the Time of Ice. The resulting mish-mash of Unicorn courtly culture, Pegasus military tradition, and Earth Pony agrarian aristocracy lead to a curious society that was simultaneously feudal but oddly egalitarian. Given that there was a great deal of land up for grabs, many would-be nobles could easily acquire large estates, provided one had enough followers to hold it.

    The major ruling organization of this time was the Equestrian Triune Council, a deliberative styled after the Pegasi Senate and the Earth Pony’s Field Congress, though only open to property holders as per Unicorn tradition. The Triune Council was where debates of policy were held and grievances could be aired in an open forum. Many prominent philosophers such as the pegasus brothers Socratic Question and Platonic Ideal became famous in this era. Meanwhile, brave adventurers and knights errant wandered the land and sky, establishing contact with numerous other civilizations such as the Gryphon Clans, the Minotaur Primarchy, the Zebrican Tribes, the Caliphates of Saddle Arabia and the (now long defunct) Diamond Dog Empire.

    Sadly, the later portions of the Classical Era were marked by increasing social stratification and infighting, as smaller nobles were integrated into larger dynasties by either force or marriage, the numerous bloodlines forming the basis for the Noble Houses of Equestria. By the arrival of Discord, thirty noble houses dominated the Triune Council, equally representing all three breeds of pony-kind.

    ??? - The Discordian Era

    Records of this time make it difficult to determine how long Discord’s reign actually lasted. What few intact records remain speak of the draconequus’ sudden appearance in central Equestria and subsequent domination of all those who dared oppose him. Those  who did not manage to flee the country or take refuge were left to Discord’s mad whims. The Era came to an end, however, by the equally sudden and miraculous appearance of Celestia and Luna, and the subsequent sealing away of Discord.

    AD 1-242/253 - Post-Discordian Era / The Early First Diarchic Period

    This time, formerly referred to as the Post-Discordian Era, was a time of strife and change. With the appearance of Celestia and Luna, pony society found itself beneath the hooves of a pair of powerful, but benevolent leaders. However, with enemies closing in on all sides and the population still wracked by Discord’s malfeasance, Equestria was forced to trust in the two alicorns. Thankfully, the two sisters quickly set about fixing the many problems besieging the land, eventually becoming recognized by the remaining Noble Houses and granted stewardship of the land. In addition, contact was made with the ponies of the Crystal Empire, whose patronage and alliance with Equestria helped to stabilize the healing country’s northern borders.

    Politically, however, the Noble Houses retained much of their power in day-to-day affairs. The nobles of the time often exploited their connection to and relations with the Princesses in order to expand and maintain their personal control over their domains. Pony society became increasingly stratified, forming a roughly pyramidal shape, with the Princesses at the top, followed by the nobles, and then the common pony-folk below. Contrary to common belief, not all of the commoners were Earth Ponies; unicorns born to laborer families and pegasi of lower status were also commonly exploited by the nobility of all breeds.

    The era’s boundaries with the following era are often debated by scholars. Some believe that the era came to a close after the signing of the Concordian Covenant and the establishment of the Common Laws. Others believe that the founding of the new capital at Canterlot marks the end of this era. The distinction is largely academic.

    AD 254-354 - The Concordian Era / The Late First Diarchic Period

    The relatively brief Concordian Era is viewed by romantics as a golden era in Equestrian history. With the many threats to Equestria banished, the lingering effects of Discord’s reign gone and much of Equestria’s territory tamed and managed, stability had finally reasserted itself. However, while the Concordian Era was a time of peace and safety, it was also a time of corruption and decadence, particularly amongst the ruling classes. With social classes becoming progressively more rigid, social mobility became something of an impossibility for the lower classes. Meanwhile, the nobility indulged in revelry and idleness, their lavish estates often the sites of many parties and fetes.

    Many traditions, particularly those surrounding modern holidays such as Nightmare Night and the Summer Sun Celebration can trace their roots back to this time, whether they be folk traditions of the peasantry or the more opulent festivals of the wealthy. However, it was also this era that saw the disappearance of the Crystal Empire, and the rise (and subsequent banishment) of Nightmare Moon. Though whether it was this event, or the later pronouncement by Princess Celestia to the public (commonly titled as ‘I, The Rising Sun,’ by historians) that lead to the end of the Concordian Era, pony-kind would soon find itself thrown into discord once more.

    AD 355-440 - The Interregnum

    The period known as the Interregnum was a time of strife not seen in Equestria for generations. Having been ousted from their positions of power, the Noble Houses of Equestria turned on Princess Celestia, attempting to regain their original statuses by force. Some attempted assassination, while others sought aid from forces outside of Equestria. No matter the source, Equestria found itself in a state of civil war.

    Unfortunately for the traitors, Princess Celestia was quite intent on keeping the country and the common ponies in one piece by any means necessary. By the end of the period, only a small hoof-full of ponies with noble blood remained; those who had turned traitor were either publicly executed or exiled in perpetuity, while Celestia beat back invasions and assaults with the raw power of the sun and a newly reformed Royal Guard. The scars of this period still remain in some places, and Celestia’s wrath fell quite harshly on some lands.

    By the end, however, Celestia stood supreme and unquestioned over a unified Equestria.

    AD 441-500 - The Early Solar Monarchy / The Solar Tyranny

    The transition from the Interregnum to the monarchy was difficult. Initially, Princess Celestia stood as the sole governing authority of Equestria. As absolute monarch, Celestia’s word was law, and with the fires of the civil war still fresh in the populace’s minds none dared oppose her or her forceful reforms. Many of the practices commonly exhibited by the common pony towards Celestia have their origin in this time period as a way of not offending the Sun Princess; an act that could have very well invited destruction upon a foolish pony at the time.

    Modern ponies unfamiliar with the history of their ruler would find Celestia’s practices of this time to be quite discomforting. Dictatorial control was the order of the day. Many historical documents were either heavily censored or archived away from the public eye. The punishment of criminals was often harsh and public, and often at Celestia’s own hoof. The Concordian Covenant was completely forgotten, and the Common Law was held at Celestia’s mercy. Over time, however, Celestia began to move away from these practices and towards the more merciful ruler we now know.

    AD 501-1000 - The Middle Solar Monarchy

    This era is what many ponies think of when one mentions Celestia’s reign. After the initial state of tyranny, Celestia began establishing many of the offices of the Royal Bureaucracy, many of which still exist today. Royal investitures into education allowed for the rapid spread of universal literacy and the establishment of schools and universities, including Celestia’s own School For Gifted Unicorns. Meanwhile, the re-development of the mercantile class laid the groundwork for the modern Equestrian middle class. Many national holidays and days of service, such as the Winter Wrap-Up and the Running of the Leaves were instituted in order to inspire a sense of civic duty and camaraderie between fellow ponies, with Celestia often leading by public example.

    AD 1001 - 1354 - The Late Solar Monarchy

    The most recent era (outside of the current era) still remains in living memory. With the development of new technology and advancements in magical research, many common chores and tasks became much easier to handle for the modern pony, particularly with the development of magically powered machinery. In addition, this time saw the founding of several settlements, such as Dodge City, Appleloosa, and (most notably) Ponyville.

    During this time, Celestia partially withdrew from the public eye, investing more power into her bureaucracy and serving (for a time) as a political leader only when necessary, focusing more on a long line of personal protégés culled from her School for Gifted Unicorns. Scholars now reason that this change in behavior was due to the approaching time of Nightmare Moon’s return from exile, a piece of knowledge that only Celestia was truly privy to. The waning years of the era saw the appearance of numerous unique events: the first recorded Sonic Rainboom, the appearance of a giant dragon in Canterlot Castle, and most importantly the return of Nightmare Moon and her subsequent defeat and redemption at the hooves of Twilight Sparkle and her friends.

    AD 1355 - Current Time (AD 1367) - The Second Diarchic Period

    The current era of Equestrian history has seen more than its fair share of world-shaking events. The sudden reappearance of the infamous Spirit of Chaos and Disharmony, Discord, was one such event, only rivaled in scope by his re-sealing and eventual rehabilitation at the hooves of the Elements of Harmony. The sudden reappearance of the long-lost Crystal Empire was the second, heralded by the appearance of the terrifying monster Sombra, who was defeated by the now Crystal Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.

    However, the third event is the one that many historians feel will mark the age; the arrival of and alliance with the extra-dimensional beings known as humans. The arrival of these strange creatures has already lead to massive changes throughout Equestria, not only economically and technologically, but culturally and socially as well. Some older ponies are worried about how this new species, lead by the Time-Space Administration Bureau, will change and influence their once-peaceful country. Others, however, are excited by these new opportunities and the possibility of leaving their own world for strange new lands. Whether for good or ill, Equestria will no longer be the same.

    Where's Chapter 3?

    I bet everypony is wondering where the next chapter of Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight A's is. Mea culpa. I haven't exacty been very creative recently. I'm also prepping for a presentation on the fandom that I'll be giving in two weeks. I haven't been in a writing mood, to say the least.

    I'll try to have MPLT A's up sometime soon, but I'm not sure when.

    Hello Everypony

    Sorry about the distinct lack of blog posts. I'm not really much of a blog person. So, hello!

    UPDATES:

    I'm currently working on Chapter 3 of Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight A's. These updates are a little slow, because there's a lot of dialogue I have to hash through. Bare with me though, because this is going to be a sizable chapter.

There's been some discussion and curiosity as to what episodes from FiM are canon in Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight. But fret not. Herein lies my 'word of god' from the series bible I have for this fic. Since this is an AU, some episodes will be considered non-canon for the purposes of this work. For now, here's the basic list.

Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight: The first 'season' of the fic takes place between the events of The Best Night Ever and Return of Harmony. As such, the Jewel Seed Incident occurs before Discord's escape.

Magical Pony Lyrical Twilight A's: The second 'season' occurs during Season 2, but before the events of A Canterlot Wedding. By the time the Wolkenritter attack, Discord is sealed away as a statue. Until A Canterlot Wedding, the episodes proceed as normal.

After A's, the following changes are in effect.

A Canterlot Wedding -Heavily Changed. There is no Changeling attack on Canterlot. The wedding goes off without a hitch.

The Crystal Empire - Mostly unchanged, though Yuuno and Princess Luna are involved in the events in the Empire.

Too Many Pinkie Pies - Mostly unchanged.

One Bad Apple - No Change.

Magic Duel - Non-Canon. The Alicorn Amulet is still at large, however.

Sleepless in Ponyville - No Change

Wonderbolt Academy - No Change

Apple Family Reunion - No Change

Spike at Your Service - Non-Canon. No real relation to MPLT, I just greatly dislike the episode.

Games Ponies Play/Just For Sidekicks - No Change

Keep Calm and Flutter On - No Change. Discord will likely show up later in StrikerS.

Magical Mystery Cure - Non-Canon. This is primarily because of how alicorns work in the MPLT-verse. There will be no Twilacorn. The only reason Twilight is called 'The Alicorn Ace' in StrikerS is because her flight spell gives her magic wings, thus making her look like one of the alicorn princesses.

Equestria Girls - Heavily Changed. Twilight may have experimented with being human, but not in high school. Sunset Shimmer is still around. She just didn't jump through a magic mirror into the human world...

Princess Twilight Sparkle - Heavily Changed, though the Elements were still given up. They also receive the Mysterious Box of Harmony (tm).

Castle Mane-ia - Mostly Unchanged.

Daring Don't - Non-Canon. I'd prefer Daring Do to remain a fictional character.

Flight to the Finish - No Change

Power Ponies - No Change

Bats! - No Change

Rarity Takes Manehattan - No Change

Pinkie Apple Pie - No Change

Rainbow Falls - No Change.

Three's a Crowd - No Change

Pinkie Pride - No Change

Simple Ways - No Change

Filli Vanilli - No Change

Twilight Time - Still Canon, but no Twilacorn.

It Ain't Easy Being Breezies - Still Canon, but... ugh...

Somepony to Watch Over Me - No Change

Maud Pie - No Change

Trade Ya - Still Canon, but no Twilacorn

For Whom the Sweetie Belle Tolls - No Change

Leap of Faith - No Change

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3 - No Change

Inspiration Manifestation - No Change

Equestria Games - No Change

Twilight's Kingdom - Pretty much non-canon. No Twilacorn as previously mentioned, and I'm not sure what to do with the Box of Harmony quite yet. However, Tirek's magic-eating does fit in with the Book of Darkness. As an aside, I'm pretty sure the Wolkenritter would try to kill Tirek almost immediately if they found him.

How about never happened for Power Ponies? I mean with all the changes that Spike and Twilight went through they would be Mary Sues in the comicverse.

#2 · 43w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1649288

Though, they seemed to be restricted to the Power Ponies' powerset while in the comic, so magic might not work the same way in there.

#3 · 43w, 22h ago · · ·

Spike at Your Service - Non-Canon. No real relation to MPLT, I just greatly dislike the episode.

Hahaha, I can definitely get behind that idea.

#4 · 43w, 19h ago · · ·

>>1649470 We don't really know the full extent of the Power Ponies capabilities in that episode other than what Spike explained. I mean Spike has grown more powerful since A's and I think that since then he's also matured a lot in terms of his magical potential. As for Twilight more than likely her device went with her and let's face it Mane-iac wouldn't stand a chance against Twilight once she's bound and is looking down the barrel of a pointblank Starlight Breaker.

It could become an AU if it was Spike, Fate, Trixie and her knights instead of the him and the Mane 6. It would be funny to see that happen instead.

#5 · 43w, 19h ago · · ·

>>1649720

It likely wouldn't last very long. It'd be something akin to this:

Mane-iac: So, Ponies, you think you can st-

Signum/Radiance: Yes.

*LOUD WET NOISE, FOLLOWED BY THUMP AND SPLAT*

Signum/Radiance: *dissolves the sword-shaped attack construct.* Threat neutralized.

Spike: Um... I-I don't think that's how the story's supposed to go...

#6 · 43w, 19h ago · · ·

>>1649747  Problem is that Trixie has a "No Killing" policy so even though Mane-iac is fictional she's still an actual pony. Besides killing her would just be overly clichéd and a waste of a perfectly good opportunity for Spike to step up.

#7 · 43w, 19h ago · · ·

>>1649761

I know, but the thought still amuses me. Consider it an 'omake' version of what could happen.

#8 · 43w, 17h ago · · ·

Magic Duel - Non-Canon.

Well, Trixie has no reason to want revenge on Twilight, after all.

The Alicorn Amulet is still at large, however.The Alicorn Amulet is still at large, however.

Something tells me it's going to pop up in StrikerS. Maybe when it's examined after it has been found, they'll find that it's powered by a Relic.

#9 · 43w, 15h ago · · ·

Power Ponies - Uh... I'm not really sure... This one was pretty weird.
Considering Nanoha magic, I'd expect the fact that magic items that can do that are casually sold to be a pretty big deal, overshadowing anything that actually happens inside. So, either never happened or make the existence of the comic itself important.

#10 · 43w, 6h ago · · ·

So what scared Chrysalis off from making an invasion attempt? Did she decide to shelve her plans after witnessing that everyone who would be involved is extremely badasss? Or did she merely decide to set her sights higher and is now trying to insert her agents into the TSAB?

#11 · 43w, 6h ago · · ·

>>1652154

i can't say. Spoilers.

#12 · 42w, 6d ago · · ·

What happened to Sombra, did Luna get revenge for her daughter in the end?

#13 · 42w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1654997

Without getting into spoilery stuff, basically what happened in canon. Sombra got his s*** wrecked by a pretty pink pony princess.

#14 · 21w, 2d ago · · ·

However, Tirek's magic-eating does fit in with the Book of Darkness. As an aside, I'm pretty sure the Wolkenritter would try to kill Tirek almost immediately if they found him.

I will say that it would a rather ironic Hoist by Their Own Petard moment if Tirek managed to drain them.

Don't see why the box would hold something different, it just wouldn't turn into a castle afterwards. Maybe some sort of mobile base? A Garden of Harmony if you will.

#15 · 13w, 9h ago · · ·

One question about The Crystal Empire, are Celestia and Twilight still able to cast that "Hate Magic"? After all, access to what seems to be a different style of magic can be really useful. (And will we see Twilight use more unicorn magic? You know, like the totally broken gravity inversion or polymorph?)

On another note, I know its already too late but Twilight becoming an alicorn was that disruptive for your story? I mean, what I understood from that episode was that Twilight used a fate altering spell, pretty much slapping reality until it gave her wings.

Since it is such an special case that doesn't seem repeatable (enabled by the elements, no one succeeding before, etc) it doesnt have to contradict the "normal" way of being an alicorn from blood.

PS: Tirek could be considered the inspiration for the book of darkness, since he was stealing magic LONG time before Luna created the Book.

#16 · 12w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2313755

Twilight will probably be busting out more proper unicorn magic in StrikerS, yes. And both Celestia and Twilight still have access to the 'hatemagic' that Sombra uses. They just don't use it for obvious reasons.

And yes, Twilight being an alicorn would be somewhat disruptive. I'd rather keep her as a unicorn for this story.
