    Cross Overs what why they're a problem. (short explanation)

    Okay, so here is an issue I felt I needed to get off of my chest, and that is the Issue with Cross-overs. It is a concept that may be fun to some, but when it comes to placing in who would beat who in certain scenarios, or a certain crisis, the plot of everything generally falls apart.

    Atrocity

    I deeply apologize to all those that had to read through that atrocious display of writing I posted earlier this week. It was all an honest mistake and I just planned everything out in the worst ways possible. Until further notice this story submission shall be revoked. Good day.

Cross Overs what why they're a problem. (short explanation) · 6:16am Mar 22nd, 2013

Okay, so here is an issue I felt I needed to get off of my chest, and that is the Issue with Cross-overs. It is a concept that may be fun to some, but when it comes to placing in who would beat who in certain scenarios, or a certain crisis, the plot of everything generally falls apart. You often can not compare the capability of some characters to that of characters in another or universe. Let's say for instance....you write a MLP cross-over with Master Chief from Halo. You could never say, "Oh he could so take on anybody", or " I bet he could just destroy Luna and Celestia", because they are from two different worlds of creation. Chief's gear is gear. That's it. It's not magical artifacts, its science. Science that has to obey the laws of Physics such as all human beings do as well in the Halo universe. You could never compare that to the universe of MLP, which revolves around magic and beings that literally defies reality as a part of their character. Or beings that can move Celestial bodies that should just be able to get through all defenses you have and simply crush you, if they were not so kind-hearted (which not everyone from the MLP universe is).

This kind of thing extends far out of explanation. You can't put something like a human or alien made weapon against something like Discord. He could snap his fingers and simply turn an armada of ships into clouds, they're weapons into mist or candy. Even if a weapon could just be placed in orbit, it could still be a trivial feat to be taken care of by a character like discord simply because of the basis of Chaos and how he rules it. Everything we do, we make, we influence, is chaos. It's all around us. There's not made weapon that we could ever have that could fight something like that, or a being that can defy the physics that MUST follow as humans. That is why Harmony is set as the sole thing to defeat Discord in MLP. It foils and is the opposite of chaos. It just fits and only works and can be explained as such. That is also why things like Master Chief and the Covenant are in places in the militarized Halo universe. It can only work there or in a similar universe up to its caliber.

And then comes the problem with power comprehension. If you were to bring something like halo into MLP, you would probably have to change the solar system they are in. Unless you truly believe that Celestia is moving the actual SUN back and forth throughout space in order to suit their world. That's placing her on an unbelievable level if you're trying to place them against an augmented foot soldier like master chief. That's just because you wanted to bring in a character from a universe, logically, that has to fit their on reality of the solar system, when it appears that in MLP the sun and the moon may actually be the same size, or a different type of celestial body in space or the sky. Unless you want to say that they're just rotating the entire planet, and it appears like they're moving the sun and the moon. But that brings the question to their cutie marks. Why are they a sun and a moon, why not a planet? Why not the Earth, or whatever MLP's planet is called. I mean everything just has to change, only to fit a tiny possibility in a logical manner.

That's the problem I see in these types of things. That's an example of why things are the way they are in certain made up universes, because they just work that way. (apologies for any grammatical errors, I was just spilling my thoughts at 1:20 am)
