Just doin' my own thing. ;)

E

Twilight Sparkle has always been known to forgive easily. Many of the worst threats to Equestria have gone unchecked after Twilight forgave them for their actions. But when Starlight Glimmer, a former enemy of Equestria, causes a major accident that endangers lives, Princess Celestia has no choice but to review and approve a plan to implement a checks and balances system against former antagonists—the Reformed Antagonist Regulation Act.

The introduction of RARA splits the Mane Six, and many Equestrians, into two factions. Supporting a former villain's right to choose their own destinies is Princess Twilight Sparkle. Supporting a system of accountability and a fail-safe for potential relapse is Twilight's former friend, Moon Dancer.

Friendships are tested, loyalties are questioned and switched, revenge burns in the air, and all the while, a new threat pulls strings in the background, ready to destabilize Twilight and her friends' bonds forever.

Based on "Captain America: Civil War".

I have a feeling this is going to be an epic crossover.

:pinkiegasp:!

My anticipation has just spiked into the clouds! I personally haven't seen Captain America: Civil War, but this already looks like the next best thing!

Even though I didn't get a chance to see the movie when it was in town, I can tell I'm gonna enjoy reading this. Great first chapter, my friend! :yay:

7336739 Not exactly a crossover, just one story inspired by another. But I'm glad you're enjoying it. :twilightsmile:

7336786 Thanks so much, guys! Thanks for the faves, and as soon as you can, see the movie. It is phenomenal! :pinkiehappy:

7336816 I will do my best to remain neutral on her. Or at least present enough good for her to counter the bad. :twilightsheepish:

7336825 Excellent! I highly recommend it! Best Marvel movie yet! :pinkiehappy:

So... who is going to make a deal with the devil here?

This... looks promising. I'll be reading this later.

7336788
Sorry I wasn't clear. I consider things inspired by something or something like this where characters can play roles of other characters a crossover, not just things where characters meet.

I can't wait to see more.

7336965 Oh, I see. Well, I'm still glad you're enjoying the story. :twilightsmile:


7336964 Hope you enjoy it! :pinkiehappy:

Ehhhh, an interesting idea, but considering the idea has to be centered around Starlight to work, I think I'll pass

7336997 Ummm . . . not really the basis for this story. So . . . no one? :applejackunsure:

7337002 One More Day takes place after Civil War.

7337016 Okay. Fine. The story's still not based on "One More Day", though. At all. :applejackunsure:

In the "Other" Civil War, I sided with Cap. Though, in this one, I gotta say I side with Moon Dancer here.

You have my interest!

7337064 Thanks so much for reading! I hope you continue to enjoy it! :pinkiehappy:

Snap.

ohgoodstorybytheway

7337118 Glad you're enjoying it! :twilightsmile:

Now that I started to read this, I'm interested now. Too early to take sides now though.

Also, is it bad that I thought of this while they were fighting the timberwolves?

#TeamMoondancer

I'm ready for this :rainbowwild:

7337141 I don't see anything wrong with it. I can see how someone else might, though. :applejackunsure:

I'm just glad you're enjoying the story. :twilightsmile:

If Moon Dancer has elements of Tony Stark does that mean she created an Ultron program too?

“Can ponies even float in pudding?”

:rainbowhuh::rainbowlaugh:

7337264 Well, she does feel a bit guilty that she was in a bad place like Starlight was, and it could have made her another villain. So, she could have made an Ultron, if not for "Amending Fences". :trollestia:

Thanks for the follow, by the way. :twilightsmile:


7337299 :eeyup:

2/10 Not Enough Marthas.~IGN.

Nah, in all honesty, I'm very interested in this, and since you're loosely following the movie, which loosely followed the comics, I can't wait to read more.

I'll read this once Captain America: Civil War is on DVD.

Need more, please!

7337498 Hope you enjoy the fic a lot, and the movie even more! :pinkiehappy:
7337520 More to come! :twilightsmile:

Finally this is out!!! :pinkiehappy: I can't wait to see how this'll all play out. Also, dang! Arcanelexicon drew an awesome cover photo!

7337611 I know, right? The guy's a genius! :pinkiehappy: Thanks for the fave!

Why do I have a feeling things are going to get much worse for the characters...

Either way, great start!

This is an interesting start, and if Twilight and Starlight end up on opposing sides, they should be evenly matched.

Even though I haven't watched the Civil War movie (yet), your story brought my attention and I'm already hooked from the first chapter. I'll be tracking this for now.

Keep up the good work! :pinkiesmile:

7337877 Well, since Twilight is against the proposal to limit Starlight's freedom, chances are they'll be on the same side. Anyway, thanks for reading and tracking! :twilightsmile:

Nice start man. I know I don't have to tell you to keep up the good work I know you well:pinkiehappy:

7338001 Thanks so much for reading! :twilightsmile:

Colour me intrigued! This is a great start to a very interesting story.

Congrats on the feature, Lightning!

7338233 Thanks, and thanks for the favorite! :twilightsmile:

Dude, don't play games... Where's Jackie fall on this?

7338318 Applejack? Not sure yet. You'll just have to keep reading. :ajsmug:

An interesting start I'd say. It'll build up some nice momentum as it goes on, so keep at it! Much interest to see how this plays out

Now this I like the look of so far.

(FYI 7336965 and 7336973: There's a kind of crossover called a 'fusion fic' that's basically transplanting characters into the other setting. I don't think this quite counts as a full-on fusion, but it's that kind of thing.)

A story based on Marvel? The Mane 6 split apart? Their friendship in tatters, possibly ruined forever? I couldn't resist; I had to fave this. Hope to hear more soon.
