Has anyone else read the first arc of the season 10 comics? In case you haven't, let me fill you in. Issues 89 - 92 take place in Zecora's homeland. As well as zebras, it's also home to abadas (basically unicorn-rhinos) and kelpies (that are made of water and can control it, but don't drown people). I've been entertaining the idea of a species swap for a while, so here it is.

  • Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy are abada.
  • Pinkie Pie and Applejack are zebras.
  • Rainbow Dash and Rarity are kelpies.
  • They all have different names, but the only one I've come up with is Rainbow Splash.

You might be thinking that Rarity and Fluttershy should be the other way around, so I'll explain my reasoning:

  • Abada each have a token magical ability that they're born with, and can't learn any more. Cactus Rose, for example, can talk to plants, just like how Fluttershy can talk to animals.
  • Crystal kind of looks like Rarity.

Of course, Rainbow being childhood friends with Rarity instead of Fluttershy would vastly change their dynamic. I can imagine that Rainbow Splash wants to be a champion swimmer, while Rarity wants to make ice sculptures, and they'd frequently butt heads over their opposite interests.

Hm, I thought Pinkie would be Medley Brook (who is so gosh darn adorable she's the most memorable for me), but interesting choices, all around
