Just what the name says -- I can't believe I'm here and actually want to write ponyfic. Most of my ideas are crossovers, and they're all still being plotted out. Stay tuned!

    Hi to anyone who happens to be reading this! Longtime lurker here (for the most part) who finally decided to use the blog feature here. I like the MLP for the potential of the setting and certain characters more then anything, and there's a lot of cool fanfics and ideas bopping around out there. I guess I should talk about what I have in mind fanfic-wise for this particular fandom.

Hi to anyone who happens to be reading this! Longtime lurker here (for the most part) who finally decided to use the blog feature here. I like the MLP for the potential of the setting and certain characters more then anything, and there's a lot of cool fanfics and ideas bopping around out there. I guess I should talk about what I have in mind fanfic-wise for this particular fandom.

Recently I played around with the idea of doing a multichapter story that's basically a AU take on FiM. Yes, it would ignore most everything past the first season. Personally I feel the show just gets less and less engaging as it goes on and on, though there certainly are elements I like, like some of the movie characters and the Pillars of Equestria (... not Starswirl though; I've seen fan interpretations of his characters that I prefer way more). G1 (which I think FiM fans unfairly pick on even though it's what got this whole pony craze started) has a lot of interesting elements, and most of the villains there were better too, IMHO of course, so I wanted to incorporate it into the story somehow as well. But I don't want to take G1 villains and just jam them into G4. Hmm. I don't think I've seen anyone have the G4 and G1 ponies exist alongside each other, so that might be an option here.

I don't know. I'm just thinking out loud right now.

Your idea for an AU sounds really cool and I'd love to see what you could do with it! I've been wanting to do something with the Pillars of Equestria too, and I agree about Starswirl; the show's interpretation of him wasn't my cup of tea either. I get what they were trying to do but I felt it didn't work. He came off far differently than what I feel a lot of us expected him to be. Eh.

Anyways, I'm loving the option of having the G1 and G4 ponies hanging out together too; that sounds like a great idea for a story and it's a neat way to pay homage to its origins. Which ponies would you be focusing on from both generations, should you be going with this option?
