    A Really Unexpected Surprise

    Just posting this here to immortalize this very unexpected and surprising turn of events:

    Somehow, A Marked Question, the new canon-compliant Omake I wrote for TPoF managed to reach 200 thumbs ups without acquiring a single thumb down. :rainbowderp:

    Sorry for the long delay. RL has been a pain, which in turn forced my writing to be pushed aside these past few weeks. But now I’m happy to say that things are slightly better and that I’m writing again.

    A Moment of Silence

    My uncle has passed away today due to complications caused by Covid. I would like to ask for a moment of silence in honor of a great family man who has been taken before his time.

    You will be missed.

    Seven Days Withouth Internet and Counting

    So a idiotic storm broke the antena on the roof that I use to get my internet conection. (Using the really limited and crappy net from my cellphone to write this).
    This being the start if the year getting someone to fix it has proven a problem. A techinician "should" have come today, but no duch luck.
    So I'm letting you all know the reason for my 'radio silence'.

Poll – Which member of the Triforce Trio would fit best as which CMC? · 5:10pm Apr 24th, 2020

So, I had a very neat Idea for an, non-canon, omake for my Power of Freedom story: After the end of the current story the Triforce Wielders would end up reincarnating as the Cutie Mark Crusaders, shortly before the return of Nightmare Moon.


Shenanigans would ensue.

But that raised the question, which of the Trio would be reincarnated as which CMC?

Since I didn’t have a strong preference I decided to let you all decide. So please post your comment stating which CMC would be a best fit for which of the Triforce Wielders, and the choice with the most votes shall be what I will go with.

Example:

Sweetie Belle – Link

Scootaloo – Ganondorf

Apple Bloom – Zelda

Ps: The next chapter of TPoF is proceeding nicely and has passed its halfway point, so no worries in that regard.

Are we going for serious "This will work", or outraged screaming?

5249433
Considering this will be the Triforce Trio as the CMCs?

Both. :scootangel:

Counterpoint: I don't think any of the CMC count as "Wisdom" since they seem to lack basic self-preservation instincts.

They do have plenty of Courage, I'll give them that.

5249438

Well then, let's see. Ganondorf as Sweetie Belle, hew the singing over a bit into speech-craft, and apply the fashion interest to elegant and functional armor. Rarity gets to deal with the clash between her delicate sensibilities and her rough-and-tumble sister. On the one hoof, a fashion boutique is hardly the place for a homemade forge, but on the other hoof those filigree-inlaid horseshoes are simply divine!

Link is Apple Bloom, the hardworking but very odd duck of the Apple family, strong evidence that Pinkie Pie really is related to them. After growing up rebellious and unsure of herself Applejack was prepared and determined to guide her little sister through the pitfalls of youth, but she's often wrongfooted by Apple Bloom's surprising and unconventional maturity.

Zelda is Scootaloo, a Pegasus filly of uncertain origin, fascinated by magic and constantly frustrated by her late-blooming Pegasus abilities. Introduced to her now-iconic scooter by Rainbow Dash as a way to exercise her underdeveloped flight magic, Scootaloo often has to be reminded to stop overthinking things after getting caught up in an idea.

5249441
Counter-counter point: They can build things like catapults with scraps, duct tape and enthusiasm, that does demonstrate some level of wisdom. :derpytongue2:

Jokes aside, the omake would lean heavily towards the comedy aspect of things.
Like for example Applejack having to learn to deal with the fact that Apple Bloom(Zelda) is incredibly smart for her age and keeps speaking highly techinical 'nonsense'.

Mmm, kidna hard to pick. I'm inclined to go with matching the tribes of their first incarnations:

Sweetie - Zelda
AB - Ganondorf
Scootaloo - Link

5249433
Love the Sweetie-dorf idea you put forth. Actually, love all of the ideas.
5249438
Go with his ideas, they would be AWESOME fleshed out more.

5249474
This is why I put this blog post on, to see the ideas my readers have about this.
I'll probably leave this up for about a week or so before deciding, though I do admit that his idea for Sweetiedorf crafting fabulous armors is really good.

Which kind of reincarnation are we talking about here?
Mystical same soul, but otherwise no change, memory recovery, multiple minds, or continuity of mind between generations?

5249539
I'm going with the memory recovery for this one. They would start to remenber all their past lives, including the ones that happened in TPoF a few months before the Nightmare Moon situation.

5249467
Definitely agree with this. I doubt Link would like to give up wings, or Ganondorf his raw strength, or Zelda her magic.

5249542
Y'know, this is starting to sound more like material for a genuine (if distant) sequel. :trixieshiftright:

Sweetie - Ganondorf
I picked this mainly for Sweetiedorf to Scoff at the Gear the Royal Guard is currently wearing.
I mean Sure Her previous Incarnation laid down the Enchantments and basic style of the Gear currently used.
It stood the the test of Time and various wars Equestria fought But really no one attempting Improvement or innovation on it just will not stand.
Sweetiedorf as a Craftspony forever striving for Perfection in her art rather than world Conqueror.

AB - Link
Actually having a complete loving Family for the first time in her many incarnations

Scootaloo - Zelda
Flight enough said.

Well, when I thought about the Triforce of Power, the first CMC to come to mind was Apple Bloom. Apple buckin's in the family after all. Her dabbling in alchemical magic under Zecora's only more suggestive.

Scootaloo is without any doubt the courageous daredevil of the three. Often alone, or in the care of an Aunt (vs Link's Uncle), and always on a quest, be it for a cutie mark, or to fly.

And there's a reason Sweetie Belle is jokingly called Dictionary Filly. She's smart as a whip. And she definitely has an instinctive appreciation for finer things. Princess-fine things, perhaps?

So if the cycle of reincarnation ol' Dorfy-hooves was trying to break is gonna continue after all, just with more friendship and less world conquerey infighting, that's how I'd divide it. Apple Bloom is Ganon. Sweetie is Zelda. And Scootaloo is Link.

5249564
It will probably be a series of omakes, at least a few chapters I think.
It just won't be a sequel because I already know how the sequel will go and this is not it. :twilightsmile:

If my memory doesn't fail me, the thing that Ganondorf railed against was to being forced to play the villain every time. So I'm guessing as long as they don't get shoehorned into a role they wouldn't be too cross at the continued cycle of reincarnation.

5249604
Pretty much, yeah.
His reaction will be along the lines: "So this is still a thing, huh?"

5249593
Wow, a perfect tie so far. Mind if I break it?

Scootaloo definitely embodies Courage the most, even if it borders on recklessness.
Wisdom is a bit harder, but given her upbringing, I'd say Sweetie Belle has the best chance of liking books and spells.
Which leaves Power for Apple Bloom. Not that she isn't wise in her own down-to-earth kind of way.

So, basically the same tribes. Which, given the Zelda lore with the Hylians and Gerudo, would kind of make sense anyway. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

5249456
Dangit, that also sounds cool. I'm sticking with my picks, but I like where you're going with this.

5249649
Both options sound very good, so is no wonder is neck in neck. :raritywink:

Ah ,well If my vote doesn't win so be it.
I'll always have my headcanon for Ganondorf's last moments in Equestria.
As an elderly Stallion and Spouse rest beneath the shade of one of the many Apple trees his Family owns.
Watching the Great-Grandfoals romp beneath the blizzard of Apple-blossoms Falling from the trees.
And Savoring the life-giving Wind he Coveted for so long and finally achieved.

5249649
Well where's the fun in the obvious pick? We've already got a full story coming to us of them being the tribes that suit them, why not see how they deal with being the tribes that don't suit them? After all, the Triforces remain with the three bearers regardless of their form, so worthiness isn't a concern.

Understood. Admittedly, any combination can be entertaining. Opposing personality traits can be more interesting than similar traits. Rainbow Dash learning she was an egghead in a past life, and now has all these memories, for instance.

Honestly, I can't say any of them really map to each other particularly well.

5250054
Indeed, both ways can work really well if done right, either going with the 'apropriate' tribes for each or going the oposite way for the fun of the ponies having wtf moments, like Sweetie Ganon insisting on wearing armor and using huge weapons despite being an unicorn filly.

5250094
Popping up along their original Tribes would fit with the Reincarnation Schtick.
Considering the Apples are probably Gannondorf's Descendants along with a good chunk of the Earth pony population of Equestria.
It'd would fit but Sweetiedorf the Image of Rarity Clean Queen herself dealing with a smoky and sooty forgemistress sister...

5250097
Pretty much, yes. A cruel dilema. :trollestia:
What is quickly becoming clear is which tribes people don't want the trio as. Ganondorf as Scootaloo, Zelda as Apple Bloom and Link as Sweetie Belle each remain with a firm zero. :scootangel:

5250118
Looks like the Original set win out,Question will this project come out after the new Chapter or is it for a possible sequel.
Because you've got a lot to go through if you plan that far.
Windigos plus the exodus(current) Founding of Equestria Discord, Princesses crowned various wars Crystal empire vanishing then the Nightmare Rebellion/War Depending on if you go for a one night Battle or a full scale Civil war between the sisters.
Anyway looking forward to your works.

5264429
Indeed. I have a lot of it planned out for the actual sequels, The Courage of Hope and the Wisdom of Peace. :raritywink:
My plan is for this to be a 'what if' spin off, a non-canon sequel of sorts in which they get reincarnated as the CMC after their current lives of TPoF end.
I think I will keep the vote open until a couple of days after the next update, which if all goes well should be up by the next weekend.

Just found this and I like the idea of this omake and wanted to share my vote.

Sweetie Belle: Ganondorf
Apple Bloom: Link
Scootaloo: Zelda

I just really like the idea of these 3 becoming ponies that certainly you wouldn’t think of at first for them.

5250038
Sweetie: Zelda
I cannot decide who the other two would be

Poking my nose in again to advocate for the off-tribe option, we've an entire story to appreciate them in the "right" tribes, this is a chance to do something different.

5250038
In reality I can only see sweetie as Zelda, but I can see Zelda as scootalo Also
Link and Gannon
I cannot deside

Link = Scootaloo

Gannon = Applebloom

Zelda = Sweetie Belle

Link = Scootaloo

Gannon = Applebloom

Zelda = Sweetie Belle

Link = Scootaloo

Gannon = Applebloom

Zelda = Sweetie Belle

I went with Gannon for Scoots because I can imagine the Triforce being able to allow her to fly. Also I can’t imagine her as Zelda.

I went with Link for Applebloom because her facing the chimera in the Fire Swamp is really front and center in my mind right now. Otherwise I could see her as any 3 of them.

And Sweetie Belle as Zelda because she seems to be the biggest voice of reason from what I remember.

I’m just going to follow the other story as far a tribes go.

Sweetie Belle – Zelda. Because Unicorn!

Scootaloo – Link. Because she’ll be fast as anything and athletic due to determination.

Apple Bloom – Ganondorph. Because she’s an Apple and will be as Strong as Applejack or Big Mac

5283660

True he did ask that, and it seems that the votes reflect that pretty clearly. Ah well. I'll read whatever the result is, of course, but I'll also pour one out for the Sweetiedorf shenanigans we never got to see.

Just imagine, Rarity's reaction to her sister installing a forge in the boutique!

5283828
admittedly that WOULD be amusing

5283828
I will admit that I am partial to your Sweetiedorf idea.
But I'm a dragon of my word, so the winner of the poll will be the one I will go with.

5283725
Ganadorf = Sweetie
Zelda = Scotaloo
Link = AB

Yeah, I'm the side of
Ganonbloom
Zelda Belle
and
Scootalink.

It retains their current subspecies of pony, plus the arguments that Midknight Defender put forth.

Sweetie Belle – Link

Scootaloo – Ganondorf

Apple Bloom – Zelda

Apple Bloom = Ganondorf

Sweetie Belle = Zelda
