** An unbelievably large amount of these HIE stories involve military personnel of some sort being sent to Equestria. Said military personnel almost always appear in the Everfree Forest and almost always has to fight a monster from the show, most frequently a manticore or timber wolves. Also, the ponies will almost always be inexplicably hostile to the human.

* Unless it's a story where EveryoneIsGay, Rainbow Dash is the go-to choice for a lesbian or bi-curious character. Some fics in turn play with this by having her defy this stereotype and be offended by other characters making this presumption of her, just because she has rainbow hair.

* Many a [[FanPreferredCouple Bonbon and Lyra]] fic are about Lyra being unable to get a job, as she's a musician in {{Fanon}}. [=LyraBon=] itself is a very common ship, and the pair is frequently presented as together or married even in random stories that aren't even about them.

Then, as you're probably expecting by now, it ([[GettingCrapPastTheRadar kinda]])happened.



** There are countless fanfics where Changelings are made out to be the [[DracoInLeatherPants noble, majestic master race]], and more often than not victims of an [[RonTheDeathEater increasingly demonized, hate-filled, fascist and Balkan-esque genocidal Equestria]].

We're not sure whether or not these authors have been replaced by Changelings.



** Though this gets a bit difficult after the Season 5 episode that shows the Griffin homeland is basically a wreck, with all the inhabitants acting like misanthropic, greedy [[JerkAss Jerkasses]] towards everyone, including each other, so they can't pull together to be much of a political power. It's not even clear if they have any type of government after their king died quite some time ago.

* Having crossover fanfiction wouldn't usually be considered a Fandom Specific Plot, but the ''MLP'' fandom has a disproportionate amount of them compared to most for some reason. It may have to do with one of the [[Fanfic/FalloutEquestria fandom's most popular fanfictions]] also being a crossover.

Or possibly the fun of the fan's more "serious" shared fandoms encountering a SugarBowl like Equestria.



* 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?]][[note]] [[spoiler: Friendship]] [[/note]]

* There are a ''ton'' of {{Accusation Fic}}s based on the Anon-A-Miss incident from the Equestria Girls Holiday Special, focusing on either calling out the Humane Five for being so quick to blame Sunset even on flimsy evidence, or the CMC for being so petty and spiteful to frame her in the first place. Quite a few of these go the extra mile in TheWoobie department and make Sunset suicidal and piling the guilt on the CMC for driving her to it.

** Prior to his reformation, Discord was a prime choice for an UltimateEvil-type entity when one was needed to act as the BigBad or BiggerBad of a story, due to his nature as a god of chaos and disharmony and even now being one of the most powerful characters in the series short of Celestia and Luna.

** Don't be surprised if Vinyl's eyes turn out to be red (a common theory among the fandom before her actual eye colour was revealed to be a magenta similar to Rainbow Dash's) and she wears glasses all the time to cover them up. She may have been bullied because of them in her youth, and revealing her eye colour to Octavia (in the more shippy fics) is a big sign of her trust and love for Octavia.

** Or, before the events of the story, Celestia turning evil and being [[{{Irony}} sealed into the sun]]. In fact, there's an entire fanfic universe, ''Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'', where Princess Luna banishes Celestia to the sun after she goes crazy; as an added bonus, a ''different'' six ponies are chosen as the Elements of Harmony.

** A popular type of these follows the lines of "Twilight Sparkle is destined to turn evil, or is turned evil by by a malevolent force destined to re-take Equestria." These often feature torture/mind rape of the Mane Six and/or the CMC, and an epic quest to defeat her or turn her back to good.

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.]]
