''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/106436/westboro-in-equestria Westboro in Equestria]]'' is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' human-in-Equestria comedic fanfiction written by Carts Before Horses. It stars three members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church. A magical tornado hits their church in Topeka, Kansas, transporting them to Equestria. While there, they must journey from Ponyville to Canterlot to find Princess Celestia, in the hopes that she can send them home.

It is also a parody of ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', borrowing important plot elements and parodying many of the songs, though not a true crossover.

!!Tropes:

* AsianAndNerdy: Jack Wu, who is more intelligent and has a lot more common sense than the other two members of the church, is Chinese-American. Bonus points because he wears glasses and is the physically-weakest member of the group [[spoiler: until the end.]]
* AsYouKnow: A meta example, the author doesn't go into detail describing Ponyville and Twilight's library "because we all watch the show and already know what Ponyville looks like."
* ButchLesbian: Fred Phelps incorrectly assumes that Rainbow Dash is one.
* CheckpointCharlie: When crossing into the [[spoiler: Changeling Kingdom, our heroes comment on how easy it was. However, they quickly find themselves surrounded by changelings.]]
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Fred Phelps can throw his hat with super strength, but seemingly can't use super-strength without it.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler: Jack Wu,]] when he gets [[spoiler: super flame powers.]]
* FindOutNextTime: Used in the second-to-last chapter.
* GayAesop: Used when the WBC members encounter Lyra and Bon Bon, a lesbian couple. [[IgnoredEpiphany But of course, they don't learn from it.]]
* GenreSavvy: When Twilight Sparkle mentions following the cobblestone road, Jack Wu asks if there's a song that goes along with that.
* GreedyJew: Fred Phelps resists making an anti-Semitic joke about the rich bankers in Canterlot, because Twilight wouldn't get it.
* AHellOfATime: Bon Bon and Lyra have this exchange with Shirley Phelps-Roper:
--> “So what you’re saying is that Hell is filled with ponies like Bon Bon and I, and Heaven is filled with ponies like you?” Lyra asked.
--> “That’s exactly what I’m saying,” replied Shirley.
--> “Well, hey, maybe Hell isn’t such a bad place after all,” said Bon Bon.
* HeteronormativeCrusader: Not surprising, given that this story stars the Westboro Baptist Church. While in Equestria, the Phelpses comment on how they think Rainbow's mane might make her a "faggot," and yell at Bon-Bon and Lyra for holding hooves.
* {{Irony}}: The Westboro Baptist Church had just got done protesting tornado victims, but find themselves the victim of a tornado.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Fred Phelps.
* MagicIsEvil: Asserted by Fred Phelps upon meeting Twilight, as he asserts that magic is demonic in origin.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Shirley Phelps' superpower is that she can shatter glass and eardrums with her screaming.
* TheManBehindTheCurtain: Princess Luna hides behind the Royal Canterlot Curtain and uses the Royal Canterlot Voice when addressing subjects in her throne room, as per tradition.
* MoneySong: The Canterlot elite sing one of these, and it's a parody of "Merry Old Land of OZ."
* MusicalWorldHypothesis: Twilight Sparkle explains that songs are simply one of the forms of communication. When the WBC members complain, she retorts
--> Singing is how a lot of us in this world express ourselves. You hold signs and picket, we sing. I know which one I prefer.
* NiceHat: Fred Phelps wears his cowboy hat everywhere he goes, and it grants him super strenght. Applejack, who also wears a cowboy hat, gives him a compliment on his good taste.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Twilight says this to Rainbow Dash in the song, "Looks Like We Messed Up, Rainbow," after inadvertently bringing Westboro to Equestria. But as Rainbow Dash makes clear, it was mostly Twilight's fault.
* NoSmoking: The Canterlot elite are wearing tophats and monocles, and they're smoking cigars that "they couldn't depict in the show because it's a kids' show."
* NotInKansasAnymore: Uttered by Shirley Phelps-Roper to Jack, who takes offense since he's watched the Wizard of Oz and remembers that the line was originally spoken to a dog.
* ProductPlacement: Used several times in the story. In the beginning, Fred Phelps mentions going to UsefulNotes/McDonalds, and throughout the story there are "advertisements" for popular websites such as Website/{{Google}} Maps or Website/{{Facebook}}.
* RealPersonFic: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Phelps Fred Phelps]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirley_Phelps-Roper Shirley Phelps-Roper]] and [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2012/10/03/an-interview-with-jack-wu-the-westboro-baptist-church-member-running-for-kansas-state-school-board/ Jack Wu]] all really exist, and so does the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westboro_Baptist_Church Westboro Baptist Church]].
* ShoutOut:
** Twilight Sparkle comments that she finds it odd that God doesn't speak directly to humans on earth, as Celestia speaks to ponies in Equestria. Jack Wu comments that it reminds him of the Creator/CSLewis book, ''[[Literature/TheSpaceTrilogy Out of the Silent Planet]]''.
** Shirley is said to [[Creator/MontyPython fart in Jack's general direction.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: The author implies that Twilight Sparkle has won it, saying that "she's like Green Lantern on crack."
* TakeThat: Several, including
--> “Oh, right,” said Jack Wu at Fred Phelps' incredibly tenuous "logic."
-->“Yeah, let’s go with that explanation,” said Rainbow Dash to the unicorn’s implausible story that was nevertheless still more plausible than half the explanations for Humans in Equestria that a typical fanfiction would give.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Said by Twilight Sparkle right before she bursts into song.
* TooDumbToLive: Fred Phelps insists that the three WBC members go back into the church, even though a funnel cloud is forming right over it, because God will protect them. He doesn't.
* TrailerParkTornadoMagnet: Deliberately invoked when Rainbow Dash mentions that she and the weather team had made a tornado to clear out some foreclosed cloud homes in Cloudsdale.
* WelcomingSong: Two instances. Pinkie Pie sings her "Welcome to Ponyville" song to the WBC members when they first arive. Just like when Dorothy and her friends entered the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz, Twilight and the WBC members are greeted with a song when they enter Canterlot.
* WreathedInFlames: This is ultimately [[spoiler: Jack Wu's superpower.]]
* YouJustToldMe:
--> "Yeah, I have powers too! And they’re the most dangerous powers of any of us, so you’d better let us all go, or I’ll use them!" said Jack Wu.
--> "Shut up, Jack, you don’t have superpowers," said Fred Phelps.
--> "Yes, but SHE doesn’t know that!" Jack said.
--> "Well, I do now," the Queen snickered.
