    Story Ideas I'll Never Write: The Crossover: Judgement Day: Cornetto Trilogy: Part 2

    So where else could Sunset Shimmer end up that I would like to read. Why not Tamriel of the Elder Scrolls franchise!
    I love the setting, the lore, and exploring new mysterious lands. The question then is where she ends up? When she ends up? And in what role?

    Story Ideas I'll Never Write: The Crossover: Judgement Day: Cornetto Trilogy: Part 1

    I like stories where the mirror portal goes to different worlds than the generic suburban high school, or Sunset goes to X world. The more common one I've seen is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There's several of these stories, some good, some even well written. The issue is they're all to similar. They start along book one and Sunset is young enough to start year 1, but already good with

    So... New Pokemon Game (spoilers for Nintendo Direct)

    So a 7 min. announcement for the new Pokemon Sword/Shield (I didn't like the name but now typing it out, it's growing on me). One thing I keep seeing is everyone saying the Galar Region is Great Briton, and I don't see it. What I do see is Italy.

    Thrift Store Find

    went to a thrift store this morning. looking through some random picture frames and what should I find but Rainbow Dash kissing Big Mac. looked like a random derpibooru pic printed and framed.

    something that bugs me about the Equestria Girl's mirror portal

    The Equestria Girls movie's while not that great in my opinion did introduce one of my favorite characters, Sunset Shimmer. but with her introduction comes a disparity in the line of events. how can a Sunset who's high-school age be a student of Celestia before Twilight and then have Twilight grow up all while Sunset stays in high-school? I've seen this line of events tackled many different ways

something that bugs me about the Equestria Girl's mirror portal · 1:13am Jun 10th, 2017

The Equestria Girls movie's while not that great in my opinion did introduce one of my favorite characters, Sunset Shimmer. but with her introduction comes a disparity in the line of events. how can a Sunset who's high-school age be a student of Celestia before Twilight and then have Twilight grow up all while Sunset stays in high-school? I've seen this line of events tackled many different ways all depending on the narrative, most I find more confusing than necessary. rarely do I see authors attempt the idea of different time rates. maybe because it's perceived as too sci-fi. but we know for a fact time is not constant. so can this idea be implemented in writings? easily.

first if this concept is to be used we'll need to figure out at what differing rate each side is moving at. human side is easy we know Sunset is in high school and that she's there for 30 moons, or roughly 2.5 years. cause that's how long she thought she had to be there.
next we'll need a corresponding year length for the equestrian side. first it'll move faster since we need to get from; Sunset leaving, Twilight becoming a student, to Twilight becoming an alicorn and going to the princess summit. first I'll assume Twilight is an adult but also still young enough to be confused for a high-schooler so 18-19, I'll stick to 18. next subtract the age assuming she started school so I'll guess 5 and that puts us at 13 years. now remember the 30 moons is a definite equestrian side thing so we need to add years so it's a number evenly divisible by 2.5, so add in 2 years between Sunset leaving and Twilight becoming a student. we can say then 15 years total have past in Equestria, from the time Sunset left to when she returns. so from this we get 30 moons on earth equal to 180 moons on Equestria. with these rates we simplify it to the portal opening every 6 months on earth to every 30 Equestrian months.
poor sunset with this set up she could have gone home so much sooner if she only knew.
this can go even further explaining why the portal only opens every so often, cause remember time is a non-constant it bends and flexes normally. so it's an easy leap of logic to conclude the portal opens when the time rates begin to sync up. then stays open until there's too much disparity between the two time streams. there's more math that can be done but you'll need to use sine curves and calculus, which I don't feel like doing.

tl;dr?
assuming time moves differently between sides of the mirror Sunset could have hung out in high-school for two and a half years while Equestria whizzed by long enough for Twilight to grow up and become an alicorn.

What I see happen most though is either it's never brought up or something along the lines of "Sunset mysteriously gets flung to the past and strangely becomes even younger and can't reenter the portal in the normal 30 moons" all so Twilight is old enough for the events of Equestria Girls. I feel relative time works so much better to explain the line of events. So simple an author can just mention it in passing, and never have to break a reader's suspension of disbelief.
