* ChekhovsGun: In ''[[TheConversionBureauNotAlone Not Alone,]]'' the last scene is Celestia reading a letter from Queen Molyneux of the Gryphons, telling Celestia that her OmniscientMoralityLicence has been revoked. The backstory of this fic shows that this led to the Gryphons, Zebras and other species in their world to wage such a devastating all-out war with Equestria that it forced Celestia to "jump" their land again, only this time a good deal of it was left behind.

* HumiliationConga: After the Gryphon Queen declared Celestia's OmniscientMoralityLicense was revoked at the end of ''Not Alone'', Equestria goes through this. First, all of the other countries in Equus launch a massive economic embargo on Equestria, forcing the heavily import-dependent country to develop on its own, while dealing with scarcities of several different resources in the meantime. [[HopeSpot Some time later, negotiations were re-established for the next five years, during which things seemed like they'd be okay]]... only for, on the fifth Hearth's Warming Eve, all nations to declare war on Equestria simultaneously. The following campaign was so [[CurbStompBattle devastating to Equestria]][[note]]even Celestia herself plus an entire armada of her best royal guards were crushed by Gryphon's fleet in front of the entire populace of Manehattan[[/note]] that the Princesses were forced to relocate to another planet (see DeathWorld above), and even that was done by leaving several pieces of Equestria, like the entirety of Appleloosa and literally half of Hoofington, behind. By the time the ''USS Calvin'' discovers Equestria, the country is ravaged by civil unrest, extremely impoverished, has lost use of the Elements of Harmony, [[spoiler: and [[LaResistance a resistance movement]] is midway through a plan to "bring the Princess to her miserable knees"]].

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: After the events of ''Not Alone'', every single nation and species on Equis cut all ties with Equestria and eventually declared war on them in response to Celestia's failed attempt to assimilate the human race and her self-righteous, bigoted reasons for doing so.

What's more, there's a growing number of very angry ponies that have lost all faith in the princesses due to how their actions have caused this horrible situation in the first place.

** Equestria as a whole. After the mess on Earth and the other species (the gryphons, zebras, minotaurs, elk, and buffalo) catch wind of what the princesses tried to do, they cut off all ties with Equestria, causing economic collapse. And then they declare war, in which Equestria loses ALL of their coastal cities, along with Manehattan, Appleloosa, New Pegas, and half of Hoofington, forcing them to dimension jump to another world. [[spoiler:And that's not to mention that a good number of ponies are siding with Equis' other species who were pulled during the "jump" and the more war-torn areas like Hoofington are on the verge of openly revolting against Celestia and Luna.]]

* BreakingTheFellowship: The Mane Six is officially disbanded, as Fluttershy burned all bridges with them and went into hiding with her animal buddies. Reactions to this event were mixed: Dash feels extremely hurt by it, to the point where she regularly flies over the Everfree in search for her; Twilight insists in believing the Princesses were right (though mostly because she's in denial and doesn't want to believe her mentor could ever be wrong about anything); Rarity is trying to pretend nothing's wrong; Applejack, due the shift leaving both Appleloosa and a large chunk of the Apple Family behind to fend for themselves, is starting to doubt Celestia as well; and finally, Pinkie's desperately trying to hold her remaining friends together.

** Twilight herself is on the receiving end. While her friends don't blame her for anything that's happened, both she and the rest of the ponies do, having marked her and ostracized her as a social pariah to the point she seldom leaves the library these days.
