** 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.

** 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 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.

** 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.

* 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.]]

** 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.
