Ponies and Sonic

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 15, 2012, 9:39 AM
  • Mood: Artistic


So, midway through Nano, I ran out of steam on my current WIP. So, to keep on writing SOMETHING, I sat down and started writing a My Little Pony/Sonic crossover.

...but like anything I write, it went from "gag" to "serious business" very quickly. Something is wrong beyond the borders of the worlds, and it's encroaching upon both Mobius and Equestria.

Also, there are only six elements of harmony. There are seven chaos emeralds. Hmmmmmmmm.

Sonic: And if you're really unlucky, there might be an eighth element. Pro tip. Don't go looking for it.

It's funny how writing something completely different gave me a new spin on my Nano story.

Also, I think my favorite pony is Twilight. I like them all, but I have this thing for main characters. Twilight, Sonic, Eleventh Doctor. The first one is always my favorite. :-)

NO, I'm not putting the Doctor in this fic. I try to keep my crossovers logical, more or less.

Edit: If you like short stories about anthros, there's a little book of stories available for free on Amazon for Kindle right now. www.amazon.com/dp/B0096U46BO/r… I read them and they're very sweet, nothing dirty or anything. My favorite is Fox Hunt, where a wheelchair-bound security manager of a big company (he controls the security robots) takes on a foxgirl thief who's come to steal information. I wish it had been a whole book.

She's my favorite, too, but... as I'm not sure if I mentioned on that 50 favorite characters meme thing, I'm not really sure why my absolute favorites are my favorites. They're kind of all over the map.

Sonic and My Little Pony crossover?

THIS IS GOING TO BE EPIC.

Now I can't wait to read it! Is Shadow going to ponyland too?

Nope, just Sonic. I have six dang ponies to work with, I don't have room for the whole Sonic cast, too.

Actually there is a background pony dubbed 'Doctor Whooves' by the fandom due to his resemblance to the David Tennant's Tenth Doctor. A lot of fans have embraced the idea that this is the Time Lord regenerated into pony form and have incorporated him into a lot of fanart and fics. That triple crossover might not be as crazy as it sounds. :)

Yeah, I've seen his fanart and never actually spotted him in the show. Same with Octavia, who somebody posts all over Facebook. I can't tell if she's fanon or background. I think background, because all the background ponies (Whooves, Octavia, Derpy) are all gray.

Octavia is in the Season 1 finale episode. When pinkie pie jumps on stage singing "pony pokie". She's playing the bass. (Or is it a cello? I don't know.) She's one of the most popular background ponies.

Dr. Whooves is in nearly every episode, seems like. Usually he has no diolouge, just walk on, walk off.
And there's a legit hoodie of his character at my local mall.

Gosh, the Pony fanbase is just as weird as the Touhou one, where almost everything about it is made up. Thanks for pointing out Octavia, I know where she is in that episode. I'm one of those sad people who enjoys the show and the characters, and thinks the fanbase is psycho scary. They make Sonic fans look well adjusted.

Yeah. pretty much. XDD Though a lot of them can be really nice, they just make up WEIRD stuff.
(and some draw pony porn. UGH NO. Talk about inconsideracy Course you have it in every fanbase but it seems especially worse when it's a 100% innocent little girl's cartoon, COME ON. >>;)
So... Didn't know what about Touhou though. XD

You sound like me. I nearly always love the main characters best.
I bet Rainbow Dash and Sonic get on a storm... and I can totally see Fluttershy being all cute and nervy around Shadow, who's just as awkward. That would be comedy gold.

Fluttershy would instantly bond with the chao, I know that.

Ugh, my Shadow's too mean to even think of letting him be around Fluttershy. He'd destroy her with a look.

I'm busily lampooning the Rainbow/Sonic race trope by having her racing him whenever he takes a step, and Sonic's so buried in his problems that he's just not interested. He thinks she's annoying. :-D

Fair enough. XD

Sonic thinks she's annoying?

"Wait," said Rainbow Dash. "You can break the sound barrier on foot?"

Sonic rolled his eyes. "Yeah, duh. I do it all the time."

For half a second Rainbow gaped at him. Then she hoisted a smirk onto her face. "Well, I can do a sonic rainboom. Can you do a sonic rainboom?"

Awwww, no Doctor? XD Poo.

Twilight is my favorite too, though I think it's because she's almost exactly like ME - introverted, bookworm, always learning and ready to help out, and has very few, but very close friends. XD

I like her because she's so OCD. I come from an entire family of OCD people, so I feel like I know her. :-)

Twilight's my favorite because I relate to her the most, being a bit of an introvert myself who at first had little interest in friends, but now sees their importance. You know that one episode, "Lesson Zero," when Twilight is "late" in sending a lesson in friendship to Princess Celestia? Yeah, I had that happen once. It wasn't pretty.

And now I want to read this.

I'm pulling all kinds of fun gimmicks from Pony to use on Sonic. Like losing their color if they get too depressed. Sonic actually does have a problem that started the whole mess, and he doesn't even know it. He wants to remember what happened in Soleanna, and because he can't, it's messing him up.

Good grief, this sounds very interesting.

Technically, the ponies losing their colors was a result of them losing the element of harmony that they embodied. Fluttershy became a bully (kindness), Rarity became greedy (generosity), Applejack became a liar (honesty), Pinkie Pie became angry and spiteful (laughter, although I prefer to call it joy) and Rainbow Dash became apathetic (loyalty). Only Twilight Sparkle became depressed as a result of losing the magic of friendship because she was now lonely after losing her friends to Discord.

But that's just me being nitpicky. I'm sure this should be very interesting as well.

Oh yeah, I know how it worked. I have a whole plot wrapped around that concept of them losing their element. Except it'll just be Sonic. It's really turning into a Sonic angstfic with ponies as supporting characters. :-D

This would be so AWESOME! I'd definitely read that.
You know, I find the MLP and Sonic fanbases very similar in the fact that they both have too many fancharacters to count. XD

I know! I don't even know who's canon and who's fanon anymore. I do hope this story turns out awesome. I skimmed through the crossover section on ff.net, and I'm going to try to write a story that, you know, doesn't suck. Or involve an epic race between Rainbow Dash and Sonic.

There's too much fanon. Even the background ponies, everything about them not presented in the show is fanon.The only way to know canon from fanon is carefully watch the show. And anypony you don't see in any episode is an fc. Background ponies usually have completely fanon backstories and whatnot, nothing solid. Then of course there's there recurring speaking characters, and they are the most canon.
But there's so much fanon, even Twilight Sparkle has too much fanon stuffed into her. The fans have just made their own little "canon" universe (and they complain when the show writers don't go with what they already fabricated).

Kinda like how Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet play went from being a comedy to a tragedy.
