My First Fic Considerations · 3:13am
For anypony who cares, and I'm not sure who would, I'm in the process of trying my hoof at a few fanfics. I've got two ideas so far (and that's it, btw, ideas. not even outlines yet) and I'm attempting to start them up pretty soon:
1. (Unnamed Human-In-Equestria Story) - Yes, I know this has been done so much it's pretty much its own sub-genre now, but I hope to mix it up a bit with mine. Socially anxious and secluded 20-year-old college girl switches places with Twilight Sparkle through an as-of-yet undetermined Discord-related incident. Note: they will NOT be switching bodies; I don't like Freaky Friday style mix-ups, but they will be switching species.
2. Divide and Grow - Phyrexian oil corrupts Equestria. A crossover with MTG, and a hopefully cruel and very Grimdark infection of the ponies' universe inspired by New Phyrexia. This idea came about when I noticed that every single MTG crossover fic ever has had Bolas/Tezzy as the main villain, blatantly ignoring Dominaria's greatest and most dangerous foe, Phyrexia. I don't take pleasure in destroying the ponyverse, but as NPH showed us, any interaction with the Oil is not going to end happily, so don't hope for a very heartwarming ending. Or beginning. Or middle, for that matter.
Not really trying to decide which one I'll do first; I hope to get them both cranked out soon-ish. I just wanted to throw these ideas out there to see some reactions.
