* What with the profusion of princesses in the plotline, a very prolific plot pertains to one of the princesses presiding over open court and the various difficulties and adventures that result from the petitions brought before them. Became especially common upon Princess Luna's return in season two and even more so once [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle became an Alicorn Princess at the end of season 3]]. As often played for humor (ridiculous requests and royal shenanigans) as for drama (princesses angsting over responsibilities, politics, etc). [[spoiler: Twilight-centered fics tend to wind up with both: she's extremely neurotic and a perfectionist, but just what exactly is she the princess of anyway?]]

Added DiffLines:
** The season five finale actually had the arc villain going back and deliberately stopping Rainbow's Rainboom, spinning off no less than seven alternate universes ''in canon'', all of which are fairly grimdark. Fics which explored these specific alternate worlds exploded; the Crystal War timeline, being the first visited, is quite popular due to Rainbow having a metal wing, the second and third timelines have some focus since they bring forth old fandom favorites the Changelings and Nightmare Moon, and most of the others are fairly lightly touched upon. The final timeline, though, has inspired quite a few attempted explanations for it being a total wasteland.

Added DiffLines:
* Because of the time travel involved in the season five finale, it's not uncommon for Twilight to alter the past herself by either adopting young Starlight or [[spoiler:convincing her to go after Sunburst. Plenty of Sunburst/Starlight reunion fics are also out there too.]]

I wouldn't call eating everyone's jewelry "good" per se, but it's more annoying than harmful
** Ironically, the Smooze ended up showing up in the fifth season, in Make New Friends But Keep Discord. Except he had good intentions.

* After ''A Canterlot Wedding'' aired, a lot of people were disappointed with how the inevitable fallout from [[spoiler: Twilight's outburst at the wedding rehearsal]] was just casually brushed aside as if it never happened. Deconstructions of the episode, [[Fanfic/TheNuptialverse ranging from the rest of the cast (and occasionally Twilight as well) still feeling incredibly guilty about the whole thing]] to [[Fanfic/FaithAndDoubt Twilight going completely nuts about it]] cropped up almost immediately, making it the episode with the most [[AccusationFic Accusation Fics]] attached to it in FIM. A subplot would usually include mention that the kingdom nearly getting conquered would serve as a black mark on Celestia and Shining Armor's reputation, especially when they were both warned beforehand and heavily prepared for a threat, usually leading to rebellions or a call for Celestia to step down, with some more darker stories having Celestia tried for treason (with or without a guilty verdict and/or an execution). Regardless of what will happen, you can ''always'' expect [[LoveGoddess Cadance]] to lay the [[WhatTheHellHero verbal smackdown]] on the ponies, and/or Twilight's parents to take her side on the issue. ** To get an idea of how huge this plot is, the Fimfiction group "The Accusation Fic collection" has an ''entire'' subfolder aimed at ACW.

* Prior to "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E19CrusadersOfTheLostMark Crusaders of the Lost Mark]]", it wasn't uncommon to see Silver Spoon calling out Diamond Tiara for bullying the Cutie Mark Crusaders and eventually becoming their friends. Diamond Tiara would also receive this kind of redemption but on a ''much'' rarer scale.

* There's a surprisingly large number of fanfics about the background ponies Vinyl Scratch and Octavia - a modern techno DJ and classical musician, respectively - somehow having to work together, whether they go to the same university, get assigned the same radio show, or become roommates. HilarityEnsues. {{Shipping}} also frequently ensues.

Added DiffLines:
* Given that the gender ratio of ponies in Equestria seems skewed to the point there are many more mares than stallions, many fics explore the sociological impacts of a society where the males of the species are in short supply, particularly in regards to sexuality, childbearing, and gender roles.

** The last couple of years have seen a surge of stories that follow a specific trend of HIE fics -- namely, a fan or hater of the show is in costume at a convention or party when they get sucked into Equestria, and [[BecomingTheCostume gaining the powers of whatever they're dressed as]]. This trend is in turn subdivided into two types, with the human character becoming either a friend or enemy of the ponies.
