No-PWNY

Here I will list pony characters and worlds that have previously been rejected for PWNY fics, and the reasons why.
(Art by ProfessorCatPro.
DA here.
Tumblr here)

First, I'll list the qualifiers for pony characters and worlds that have to be met.

1. Has a strong connection to a main cast member.
2. Lives in Ponyville.
3. Has had characterized appearances (at least a speaking role) in multiple episodes (or movies)
4. I like them
5. I haven't used them before.
Must meet 4 and 5. Must meet at least one of the other three, 2 preferred.


1. I am aware of the world in question previously, or would require minimum research to become familiar.
2. Has a character that can readily be characterized to be the parent unit with a predefined characterization.
3. Must either have a completely undefined timeline, or a defined timeline covering at least a decade.
4. Must be a world I enjoy.
5. Can't be a world I've used before.
Must meet all requirements (though there are some exceptions to 5).

For convenience as far as those still offering suggestions, here is the TvTropes page with a list of all PWNYverse stories.
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanFic/AdoptedDisplaced


Lyra and Bon Bon - fails 3 and 4
The Dazzlings - Only Sonata passes 4, and they all fail the other three, having only appeared in one movie.
Blueblood - fails all requirements
Daring Do - fails 2 and 4
Flim and Flam - fails 2 and 4
The Flower Trio - fails 3 (shouting "The Horror" over and over again does not a fleshed out character make)
Lightning Dust - fails all points (being a one-time rival/foil to Rainbow does not qualify as a strong connection)
Thorax - Special Case. He technically meets all but number 2, but his major characterization shows drastic shifts in both his role and character between his first appearance (Spike befriends him) and second (the two parter where he becomes King of the Changelings). This doesn't provide enough characterization pre-change to do a story with him that way, and there isn't enough material in the show post-change to work with as far as the 'Return to Equestria' arc of the story. As such, I can't use him. ...same goes for Pharynx, actually.
Zecora - Special Case. There's no way I could keep up her rhymes through an entire story, and cutting the rhymes would make it not Zecora.

(more to be added as I come across them)



Halo, CoD, or any other first or third person "war simulator" - I do not play these types of games
One Piece - fails 1, as it is far too long for me to familiarize myself with it easily
Bleach - same as One Piece, and also fails on 3
Overwatch - fails on 1 and 3
Warframe - fails on 1 and 4
Dues Ex - fails on 3
Borderlands - fails on 1 and 4
Fallout - fails on 1 and 4
Five Nights At Freddy - fails on all points
Any primarily Horror genre game or show - fails on 4. I am severely unfond of horror. If I find an exception, I'll make a point of it.
Gears of War - fails on 1 and 4
Lara Croft - fails on 3
Berzerk - fails 1, 4, and I don't know if it fails the others
Lord of the Rings - fails 1 and 4
Kingdom Hearts - either fails 1 or 3, depending on how many of the games you're talking about
Half Life - fails 1 and 4 at least
Anything primarily Zombie related - fails 4. I hate zombies.
Full Metal Alchemist - fails 1 and 4
Power Rangers - fails 1 and 3, and the parts that don't fail 3 fails 1 and 4 (the only part I've seen is Rita through 'Secret of the Ooze', and the only part of that I truly enjoyed was Lord Zedd)
Naruto - fails 1 and 4
Okami - fails 3
Harry Potter - while it doesn't actually fail any qualifiers...it's just not a world I want to write this sort of story for.

Fair enough. Just can't help but be disappointed ^^;

The main reason games like that are rejected is because for me to get a deep enough understanding of the characters and the world to write a good story, I need to experience it first hand.

Aw, I just noticed the list of worlds you won’t do. Halo, Borderlands, Overwatch, Warframe...

That sucks. Is there any way your mind could be changed? You said you don’t play “war simulator” games or first person shooters, but what if the lore and stuff was written down for you to read through? That way you don’t have to play the game, you can simply understand the world and characters without experiencing them?

I’m asking because some of the worlds you’ve rejected are actually quite fun and interesting, and it’s sad to see them rejected ‘cause it could’ve been awesome to see your take on what could be done with them. Far too few stories have been done with some of them as well. Far too few good ones.

Hey is it okay if you post your PWNY stories on ao3 and fanfiction.net? Just wondering.

In addition to my last suggestion (Smolder in HTTYD), what about Ocellus in Steven Universe?
