FanFic/DoctorWhoovesTheSeries by [=Loyal2Luna=][[note]] SheAlsoDid ''Fanfic/MassEffectTheEquestrianEquation'', a crossover between ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and ''Franchise/MassEffect''[[/note]] is a {{crossover}} FanFic series between ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', [[RecursiveFanfiction splitting off]] from the events of ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/99/1/number-12/number-12 Number 12]]'' and ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/109/traveler Traveler]]'', both by [[AudioPlay/DoctorWhoovesAdventures Squeak Anon]].

The Doctor goes on adventures across time and space with the Mane 6 (just not all at once, he can't keep track of six companions simultaneously). As of yet, four regular episodes have been released:

* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/3268/Doctor-Whooves---The-Series%3A-Episode-One---The-Pinkie-Conundrum The Pinkie Conundrum]] - Following the events of ''Traveler'', Twilight goes to Canterlot to deliver her report on what has transpired since the [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/99/1/number-12/number-12 Doctor's arrival]] in Ponyville directly to Princess Celestia, leaving him alone with Spike, while the TARDIS attempts to recharge and fully repair herself after her [[InterdimensionalTravelDevice fall into]] Equestria. Although at first distraught at being stranded in the seemingly serene township of Ponyville, The Doctor must re-examine his initial assumptions about the town, the world of Equestria, and his Compulsive Need to Travel when he is confronted with the almost (?) miraculous, impossible events surrounding Ponyville's resident party-mare: [[InexplicablyAwesome Pinkie Pie]].
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/3617/Doctor-Whooves---The-Series%3A-Episode-Two--Game-of-Stones Game of Stones]] - His nature as a Time Lord revealed to Twilight's friends, The Doctor prepares for a jaunt though history with Rainbow Dash when Applejack informs him of something she saw as a filly. Intrigued, the Doctor and Twilight, accompanied by Applejack and Rainbow Dash, travel 3000 years into the past, to the Reigneissance period of Roan, where they discover a bizzarre plot against [[LeonardoDaVinci Leonard Di Hoovsie]], a failing artist destined to become a beloved Icon of Equestrian Culture.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/19315/Doctor-Whooves--The-Series%3A-Episode-Three--Along-Came-a-Spider Along Came A Spider]] - When faced with the Doctor for the first time, Zecora flees in terror. When the cryptic zebra later turns up suffering from a mysterious ailment that is somehow related to her homeland of Zebrica, the Doctor, Twilight, and (much to their surprise) Fluttershy must travel to the distant savannah to discover the cause of her distress. But what begins as a search for a cure will lead to a darker place than one might believe possible, as a mystery spanning the whole of space and time deepens and hungry gods from distant memories demand the Time Lord’s blood.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/50812/Doctor-Whooves--The-Series%3A-Episode-Four---Only-Skin-Deep Only Skin Deep]] (ongoing) - When the TARDIS is unexpectedly pulled off course during her first foray into the wider universe, the Doctor, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and a somewhat reluctant Twilight find themselves brought to the doorstep of a [[{{Utopia}} utopian]] alien city. While Rarity and Pinkie immerse themselves in two opposite ends of the local culture, questions that have gone unasked for centuries draw Twilight into the shadowy labyrinth of intrigue and deception that sustains a delicate balance of power in this ‘perfect’ society. A balance that some will go to any length to preserve.
* There is also a ChristmasEpisode entitled ''A Hearth's Warming Tale'', in which princess Luna [[FramingDevice tells a story]] to certain three fillies about how Scootaloo saved the Hearth's Warming (with a little help from the Doctor).

And as the mystery surrounding the cryptic messages left in the Doctor’s path continues to unfold, will the growing schism of distrust between Time Lord and Friendship Scholar over unspoken secrets cost both ponies more than either of them are prepared to lose?

Needs further WikiMagic.
----
!!This series provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight Sparkle have turned into these.
* {{Adorkable}}: The Doctor comments on the peculiarities of Equestira in a lovably nerdy (and longwinded) way. He has a serious tendency to rant, honestly, it's a skill. Twilight? Your eye is twitching.
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Marr Bell is a type III, [[HeelFaceTurn at first]].]]
* ArbitraryScepticism: Twilight thinks [[CirclingVultures rocs]] being [[{{Psychopomp}} zebra banshee]] is ridiculous. The Doctor stays open-minded.
-->'''The Doctor''': Whether you agree with them or not, they have those beliefs for a reason and it is rarely without at least some merit.
* ArtifactDomination: [[spoiler: Tagati's mask, but it really just makes things easier for the entity possessing her]].
* BadassBoast: The Doctor's specialty.
* BadLiar: Applejack, to the point where it may as well be CanNotTellALie.
** LivingLieDetector: It is pointed out she holds the Element of Honesty...
* BewareTheNiceOnes: The Doctor, as his usual style.
* BiggerBad: It seems there is a greater threat manipulating the various VillainOfTheWeek enemies The Doctor and his companions face.
* BiggerOnTheInside: The [=TARDIS=]. Duh.
** [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Pinkie Pie]], much to the surprise of The Doctor.
* BlitheSpirit: This Doctor is an optimistic, talkative one who tries his best to distract ponies from danger. He has a bottomless supply of clever jokes. [[NightmareFetishist Nightmare fetishism]] also helps him stay upbeat.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Gelding Marks block unicorns' magic.
* CasualTimeTravel
* ChekhovsSkill: [[spoiler:The Horizontal Inertia Manipulator.]]
* ChickMagnet: The Doctor. In ''Only Skin Deep'' he finds himself the target of three quilin Mistresses. [[UnwantedHarem He does his best to avoid them]].
* ChristmasEpisode: ''A Hearth's Warming Tale'', told by Luna to three little fillies, with [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall humorous interruptions]] from them.
* {{Claustrophobia}}: It's stated pegasi have a phobia of being trapped. [[spoiler: When Scootaloo gets caught in the net, she panics hard.]]
* CliffHanger: [=Loyal2Luna=] ends almost every single chapter with these.
* ClockKing: The BiggerBad leaves messages for The Doctor, each based off a time (Noon, One O'Clock, etc, that he always reads ''exactly at that time'').
* ColdOpening: The prologues to each episode set up the adventure.
* CompositeCharacter: The Doctor is a combination of the 10th and 11th doctors with several fresh quirks added.
* ContinuityNod[=/=]CallBack: To Series/DoctorWho:
-->'''The Doctor''': I'm not a pony. I walk in eternity. I’m a traveler.
** Fluttershy knocks ''four'' times.
** The Doctor is unwilling to interfere... [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E2TheBeastBelow until]] [[FriendToAllChildren he finds a suffering child]].
-->'''The Doctor''': [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion I haven’t seen blood control in years!]]
** He mentions [[StableTimeLoop Novikov Self-Consistency Principle]].
** [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome LOOK AT ME!]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens I’M A TARGET!]]
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E5PlanetOfTheSpiders Metebelis III]] gets a mention, too.
** As do [[spoiler: cracks in time]]. And the Doctor's last conversation with [[spoiler: the Spider Goddess]] bears a direct resemblance to the one with [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E6TheVampiresOfVenice Rosanna Calvieri]].
** In the ChristmasEpisode, the Doctor is really resigned to all the weirdness that goes on holidays.
-->'''The Doctor''': [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink It goes ‘ding’ when there’s stuff]]. I just had to change the kind of stuff it goes ‘ding’ for. I’m glad I haven’t had to go near any chicken coops.
** And his TARDIS hasn't changed a bit...
-->'''The Doctor''': Now, the TARDIS is equipped with a special device called a chameleon circuit. Whenever she lands somewhere, in the first nanosecond of arrival, faster than a living thing can even blink, she scans every structure within a thousand miles, creating a detailed map of the area to cross reference with cultural commonalities that allows her to pick out the perfect disguise in order to blend seamlessly into the new environment. (...) And then she appears as a big blue police box from 1963 Earth.
** There's also a nod to ''Along Came A Spider'': a "Zebrican Green Biter (Arachne Anasi)" in Gus's collection.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Graphis Denarius.
* CosmicRetcon: Twilight Sparkle does this when telling Celestia of the events of ''Traveler''.
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler: The Anasi followers.]]
* DistressedDude: The Doctor (as is his usual style) in [[spoiler: ''Along Came A Spider'', twice. Second time with another bloke for company]].
* {{Diary}}: Twilight Sparkle has been given one (by Celestia) one to record her adventures on the [=TARDIS=]. It has a familiar sort of covers...
* DitzyGenius: The Doctor puts on an act, as usual, with the cute forgetfulness and general ObfuscatingInsanity air, whenever he doesn't need to be all serious and such.
* DoingInTheScientist: The Doctor has occasionally tried to find a scientific explanation for events, only for it to turn out to be magical.
* TheDreaded: The Doctor gets named the "God-Slayer". [[spoiler: In fairness, this was an EldritchAbomination that set up a ReligionOfEvil using MindControl, so it's kinda normal for him]].
* EvilIsHammy: WE ARE TAGATI! PROPHET OF THE GODDESS! WE SPEAK FOR ANASI, QUEEN OF ALL!
* FightingFromTheInside: The Doctor thinks [[spoiler: the real Tagati]] is.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: There have been a ''lot'' of hints regarding the existence of the BiggerBad.
* GiantSpider: ''Along Came A Spider''. There are hoof-sized spiders, and the [[ReligionOfEvil Spider Goddess Anasi]] [[spoiler: when we finally see her, brings the worst memories of Metebelis III to mind]].
* TheGrinch: Gloomy Gus from ''A Hearth's Warming Tale''. [[spoiler: Stemming from ExcessiveMourning of MyGreatestFailure.]]
* HatePlague: In ''A Hearth's Warming Tale'', it's the effect humbugs have on ponies. And it's [[KidsAreCruel quite]], [[AdultsAreUseless quite]] [[ToiletSeatDivorce potent]].
* HaveWeMetYet: Pretty much standard. Zecora freaks out when she first sees The Doctor.
* HeroicBSOD: PlayedForDrama by Fluttershy in ''Along Came A Spider'', PlayedForLaughs by the Doctor in ''Only Skin Deep''.
* HeroicWillpower: Twilight manages to [[spoiler: overcome the Gelding Marks through it]]. She later learns this is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome completely impossible]].
* HumiliationConga: Happens to [[spoiler:Graphis Denarius]].
* [[ImplacableMan Implacable Mare]]: [[spoiler:Marr Bell]].
** [[ImplacableMan Implacable Bird]]: Never stand between a dying Zebra and their Roc. There is ''nothing'' that will stop the Roc from carrying away its target [[spoiler: except bringing said Zebra back from death's door]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: Graphis Denarius
--> [[spoiler:'''Graphis:'''I WALK AMONG THE ELITE! YOUR BETTERS! AND ALL OF THESE PONIES KNOW IT!]]
* ItIsDehumanising: The Anasi followers towards our heroes. Tagati especially speaks in a very indirect, the-all-knowing-oracle-like way.
* {{Jerkass}}: Graphis Denarius.
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Their Kind]]: The Doctor.
** [[spoiler:Marr Bell, the last of the Gorgons. Except not.]]
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:Marr Bell, who has the strength of five Weeping Angels, can survive a large explosion, and is highly agile.]]
* LittleMissSnarker: Filly Zecora. Very much. Scootaloo has her moments, as well.
* MaliciousMisnaming: Not exactly ''malicious'', but it seems after he's over the regeneration trauma, the Doctor's misnaming of Twilight and Scootaloo is less [[AccidentalMisnaming absent-mindedness]] and more a device to take their minds off being frightened.
* MindProbe: [[spoiler: Tagati (also called the Prophet), in the grand tradition of Who villains, but the Doctor surprises her with his resistance]].
* MinorLivingAlone: In ''A Hearth's Warming Tale'', Scootaloo, since her dad is away working most of the time.
* MoodWhiplash: Chapter 1 of ''Along Came A Spider'' involves, in close succesion: [[spoiler: the Doctor escaping his UnwantedHarem, Zecora's FreakOut, the Cutie Mark Crusaders spying on the Doctor, Apple Bloom's friends being lied to by ''something'' creepy, herself rescuing Zecora from a roc, Twilight and Fluttershy chatting and singing, only to open the door and find bruised Bloom and unconscious Zecora on the doorstep, which leads to MedicalDrama, then the Doctor going all Time Lordly about established events and possibility of ClockRoaches and being defused by Fluttershy's PuppyDogEyes]]. Topped with a pun. Yup. The whole episode is just one rollercoaster ride of this sort.
* MotorMouth: The Doctor rambles with practiced ease. A lot.
* MrFixit: Guess Who? [[GadgeteerGenius He fixes things up better than new]]! (Although that does tend to bring too much [[UnwantedHarem attention from mares]]).
* MusicalWorldHypotheses: Every now and then, ''completely out of the blue'', we're treated to a (spoof of a well-known) song. Even when [[RealityWarper Pinkie]] isn't around. It's ambiguous whether the songs are heard by the characters or not - in ''Along Came A Spider'' Fluttershy seems to hear the song.
* TheNativesAreRestless: In ''Along Came A Spider'', because of the drought. [[spoiler: The Prophet Tagati aiming to invade Equestria does not help]].
* NotNowWereTooBusyCryingOverYou: Or, to be precise, over the gadget that was supposed to save [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash]] in ''Game of Stones''.
* PowerTattoo: Inverted for Twilight Sparkle in ''Along Came A Spider''. She has them [[HumanNotepad all over her body]], but they nullify her magic.
* PrehensileHair: Tagati.
* RealityWarper: Things Pinkie Pie does manage to fling the Doctor into HeroicBSOD, as they. Are. Impossible!
* RunningGag: The Doctor saying "somebody" and others correcting him with "somepony". The Doctor eventually gets used to saying what he's supposed to say, but Fluttershy eventually suggests "somezebra".
* OhCrap: Graphis has one when [[spoiler:he finds out Lady Astrolia is nearby.]]
* OnTheNext: Usually done with the final chapter of each episode.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: As with the show, it's prevalent here, even to the point where it fuels the [=TARDIS=], because [[MagicAIsMagicA it's the basic form of energy in this universe]].
* {{Psychopomp}}: Zebras believe that Rocs serve this role, carrying away the souls of departed Zebras to the afterlife.
* PunnyName: The [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic world of Equis]] is full of these. Usually [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the Doctor.
* RhymesOnADime: Zecora. And she is ''cryptic''. [[spoiler: Rhyming turns out to be a side-effect of the medicine for the Bite.]]
* SaveTheVillain: The Doctor gives [[GiantSpider Anasi]] a chance. It goes the usual way.
* ScienceFantasy: Though it tends to lean more on the fantasy scale (magic!).
* ScienceHero: The [[TechnoBabble Doctor]] and Twilight both.
--> '''The Doctor''': There’s no such thing as "useless" information.
* SchizoTech: [[spoiler:Becomes a plot point when a charm is discovered in a time period where it hasn't been invented yet.]]
* ShoutOut:
** HistoricalInJoke: "Let them eat cake!" (Don't worry, it was LighterAndSofter in context - no information on whether the cake was lighter and softer[[note]]a sponge?[[/note]])
** [[Series/HouseMD Pranceton Plainsboro Memorial Hospital]]
** "And I would have gotten away with it too, if not for [[YouMeddlingKids you meddling foals]]"
** "[[CanisLatinicus Scientific]]" name for the humbugs is [[Literature/AChristmasCarol Gloomius Scroogius]]
** Gorgons speak in [[Literature/HarryPotter Parseltongue]]. Also:
-->'''The Doctor''': Accio Twilight!
** The Doctor, after getting zapped by the gadget he's building: “[[Series/{{Mythbusters}} Am I missing an eyebrow?]]”
* ShesNotMyGirlfriend: Rarity, Spike and several others seem to think there is something ''more'' than friendship between the Doctor and Twilight, but both parties fervently deny it.
* SickEpisode: PlayedForDrama in ''Along Comes A Spider'' for Zecora.
* [[spoiler:SnakeTalk]]: [[spoiler:The gorgons.]]
* TheSoCalledCoward: [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy]], mostly by herself. The Doctor honestly admires her [[LetsGetDangerous badass moments]].
* SpotOfTea: The Doctor is overjoyed to find good Camellia Sinensis in Zilaka's stash.
* StableTimeLoop: In ''Along Came A Spider'', Zecora, who's already lived the events of the story as a filly, relates them to Apple Bloom [[MeanwhileInTheFuture while]] the Doctor and company are right in their midst.
* {{Steampunk}}: The Doctor's new outfit is quite steampunky, although the new TARDIS desktop theme is more pony-punky.
* StoryArc: There seems to be one involving the Master and the events surrounding ''Traveler'', as implied in the first OnTheNext.
* SyntheticPlague: The Bite, as the Doctor suspects.
* [[spoiler:TakenForGranite]]: [[spoiler:Marr Bell, being a gorgon, is able to do this to ponies.]]
* TalkingYourWayOut: Well, this is the [[GuileHero Doctor]] we're talking about. To be fair, he also talks his way into danger [[DeadpanSnarker gleefully]].
-->'''The Prophet''': Answer without answering... Questions given questions in return, it fashions its words like a labyrinth... Does it stall for time? Does it believe rescue to be on the way? Anasi thinks not.
* TimeTravelRomance: Twilight Sparkle and [[LeonardoDaVinci Leonard DiHoovsie]] fall in love.
* TimeTravelTenseTrouble: Prevalent, but Fluttershy seems to suffer this the most.
* ToonPhysics: They completely baffle The Doctor in ''The Pinkie Conundrum''.
* TownWithADarkSecret: Ancient Roan.
** The Doctor pegs [[spoiler:The Last City of Qing]] as one almost immediately, but the cryptic hints he drops, along with his refusal to elaborate, just serve to annoy Rarity more than alert her to any problems. Twilight is highly suspicious as well.
* VillainousBreakdown: Graphis gets one when [[spoiler:The Doctor and company put a stop to his plans.]]
* [[spoiler: WaxMuseumMorgue]]: [[spoiler:Graphis sells petrified ponies.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy" Graphis's FreudianExcuse. Which is really just an excuse.
* WitchDoctor: Zilaka, although he's rather pragmatic and non-mystical.
* WorldOfPun: It's [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]] and surroundings. The Doctor sometimes finds the puns [[IncrediblyLamePun painful]], though.
