If in August of last year, someone had told me I would be watching My Little Pony or writing fan fictions, I would never have believed. But now, just several months later, I'm doing both.

Story ideas I have had but will probably never see to fruition · 6:40am Oct 17th, 2012

First, I would like to say that if you are reading this, a blog posted before I have published a story or gotten any followers, then thank you for caring enough to read a back-log of blog posts. Anyway, on to the message...

So it turns out writing a story is hard. Or at least long. Much longer than coming up with an idea takes. As such, I have an over-abundance of ideas and an under-abundance of time (and skill) to write these. Listed below are some ideas I have had that I would like to see made in to a story, but for some reason or another (I don't have the time, the drive, or the skill to do it right) I will never get around to doing. Included is a short description of the story (possibly little more than a single thought) and maybe a particularly bad working title. Feel free to borrow any idea(s) below, I just ask you send me a link of the finished product.



My Little Virus: Frienship is Contagious

A never-before-seen disease is spreading across Equestria. It is highly contagious, deadly, and has so far proven resistant to magical means of treatment. With every major city in Equestria compromised, Ponyville has been quarantined and experts from all over the world have been gathered to fight the problem.

The story would focus on the team of experts trying to solve the pandemic and the social unrest and eventual breakdown within the confines of Ponyville (and Equestria as a whole) as the heads of government (and even the Princesses) fall ill and can no longer maintain the post.




AU messed up sonic rainboom story #8947846121

Rainbow Dash has done it; she has pulled off the Sonic Rainboom and earned her cutie mark. In doing so, she also gave Rarity, Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, and Pinkie Pie their cutie marks. However, Applejack had turned away from the window a few second too early and missed the rainbow leading her home and ended up staying in Manehattan.
Fast forward several years. Nightmare Moon has been defeated, but without the Elements of Harmony, it had to be through war. Twilight fell from the cliff without Applejack to rescue her and has died/been crippled. Applejack, by staying in Manehattan, had been taught how to make Sweet Apple Acres the biggest apple conglomerate in all of Equestria.

To be honest, this would never work as a story because I couldn't really come up with a conflict, and without conflict, well, there is no story. Maybe you can find one to put in this alternate Equestria?




AU Equestria with no pegasi

Another cloudy day in Equestria. No pony has seen the sun or the moon since the Pegasi defected from Equestria a few hundred years ago and sealed up the sky. Twilight Sparkle notices something is off when she starts to see a mysterious mare with a peculiar multi-colored mane. Something about Equestria that isn't right. Now, Twilight must travel back to Canterlot to dare a political minefield while she tries to unravel the mystery of just what happened all those years ago and maybe, just maybe, bring back the sun.

Not really sure what to say about this. Interesting enough, would require an alternate EoH without Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy.




Cupcakes

Pinkie Pie has outdone herself: she has cooked cupcakes that would allow her to transcend time itself. Now, armed with a baker's dozen of her Time Cupcakes (patent pending), she is off to perform shenanigans across all of time and space.

Inspired by Friendship is Witchcraft, where Pinkie bakes a portal. This would be an interesting vehicle for backstory of the characters and Equestria. Scrapping it because I can't stand Pinkie, so I would never enjoy writing a whole story about her.







I'll probably post more as I remember all these old ideas I had once upon a time.

That AU messed up sonic rainboom one sounds very good. I wish I had the time (or the skill) to try to write it, but I don't think I do. I love the idea, for some reason, and I can't quite put my hoof on it.
