* AscendedFanon:
** Apparently, WordOfGod states that the story is actively influenced by reader interpretations, hence the abundance of tropes.

** While the story hasn't be declared yet, ''[[http://kendell2.deviantart.com/art/Discorded-Ponies-Celestia-Not-Loved-276364923 Discorded Celestia: Not Loved]]'' gave Discord the middle name Apophis and last name Typhon. "Different From Everypony Else" had this made his official full name. Also both a bit of GeniusBonus and NightmareFuel to fans of mythology who know just what those names ''mean''.
** [[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/art/Discord-Not-one-of-a-kind-288483348 Discord: Not One Of A Kind]] was declared an AlternateUniverse by WordOfGod, but the latest chapter, "Modern Major EvilOverlord", sets up a scene that's pretty much the exact scene that the alternate Discord sees when he looks into the truth.
** [[http://dalekolt.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5b4hks This]] piece of fanart (a sequel to a certain scene in Dark World) was eventually inserted into the fic.
** Alexwarlorn noted that despite describing Pandora with a fox's tail, fanart kept showing her with a lion's tail instead. Eventually, he had Discord comment that Pandora went through a phase where she replaced her lion tail with a fox's for a while before going back.
** [[spoiler:The Nameless Passenger in Dark World is eventually revealed to be an evolution of Nightmare Purgatory from the "Fading Futures" RecursiveFanfiction.]]
* AscendedMeme: Cutie Mark Failure Insanity Syndrome gets a shout out in Shining Armor's 10th chapter.
* CreativeDifferences: Seems to be a genuine case between Alexwarlorn and [=LZ0291=] given their comments, as a number of their arguments seem centered around the directions the fanfic goes in. While neither sides have parted ways, [[CreatorBreakdown LZ has come close on a number of occasions]] and the two fight from time to time in the comments.
** The fighting between the two eventually got to the point Godzillawolf left the project altogether rather than be between his friends.
** And now it's gotten to the point that the disagreements between the two has practically turned into ''hate'' and the two's grudge is threatening the story as a whole.
* CreatorBreakdown: Alexwarlorn has had several over the course of the story, though thankfully he's managed to recover each time and it hasn't effected the story much.
** [=LZ0291=], the writer of the Shining Armor arc, suffered one, feeling that no one cared about his arc and was seriously considering quitting the project. Fortunately, the fans let him know that they did care, and he recovered. It was later revealed this was in part due to clinical depression.
** Godzillawolf has also had minor one due to RealLife events (including the death of a family member) putting tremendous stress on him combined with various TroubledProduction related issues. He managed to recover, thankfully, and the story wasn't effected.
* GodNeverSaidThat: It was commonly believed that [[spoiler:D___t]] was the WhiteSheep of his family, but neither WordOfGod nor the story ever said that, it merely implied [[spoiler:he]] was well liked by his siblings. [[spoiler:It turns out he was a WellIntentionedExtremist who may have been a CoolBigBro, but also intended to wipe out all the Alicorns.]]
* IKnewIt: Despite refusing to watch season 3 till the fic is done, the author actually managed to predict plot points in about half the episodes of it. See HilariousInHindsight in the YMMV page for details.
* PromotedFanboy: Kendell2 started out as simply a fan, then became a beta reader before actually getting to write some scenes a finally even [[http://fav.me/d4qyvwm three]] [[http://kendell2.deviantart.com/art/Pony-POV-Series-Celestia-The-Third-Alicorn-298873027 chapters]], including a [[http://fav.me/d696jx5 Shining Armor]] arc chapter written to supplied notes, and co-writing the chapters from 14 onwards. He refers to himself as this trope in the description. He also wrote the original lyrics for the original Reharmonized audio adaptation's theme song, though they were altered somewhat for the final version.
** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/389589/KnightMysterio Knight Mysterio]] and [[http://dragon-of-twilght.deviantart.com/ Dragon Of Twilght]] also qualify, as several of their stories have been declared [[LooseCanon optional canon]] by the author as well.
** Same with [[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com ItsfromPeople's]] story, [[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/art/Discord-Not-one-of-a-kind-288483348 Discord: Not One Of A Kind]] has been declared an official AlternateUniverse.
* TroubledProduction: Due to the sheer side and scope of this fic, combined with issues in outsourcing for the G2 Dreams/Nightmares arc, this fic has been in quite the rocky situations.
** And by this point, the Louis (producer of the Audio Adaptation) is the ''only'' person on the main crew that hasn't had a CreatorBreakdown at some point.
** Alexwarlorn and LZ's relationship has also become strained, leading to disagreements between the two that ultimately caused the SA arc to be frozen in DevelopmentHell for a time. On top of this, LZ developed clinical depression at some point in production (part of or the reason for the fighting) and the fighting between the two lead to Godzillawolf departing from the project. Thankfully, the two were finally able to make amends enough to finish the SA Arc together so they could both finally move on.
** And then the wedding started and the feud erupted again, resulting in LZ trying to have his contributions to the story removed. It seems the two of them just can't seem to put their grudge behind them and move on.
** Louis also seems to have vanished as well but returned in time to help some with the final chapter of the SA Arc.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, Dark World!Twilight's Halflight Noon form was intended to debut in a FreeFallFight with Fluttercruel.
** Alexwarlorn wasn't originally supposed to write ''any'' of the 7 Dreams/Nightmares chapters, but ultimately had to write Bright Eyes' story due to losing contact with the original writer.
** Chapter 36 of Dark World originally had scenes of [[spoiler:Amicita restoring Neo Stream to existence and healing/redeeming [[Warhammer40K the Emperor of Man]]]]. However, complaints from [[spoiler:Neo Stream]]'s owner in the former case and pressure from critics in the latter case forced Alexwarlorn to remove both scenes.
** According to WordOfGod, Makarov was originally only going to be in the SA arc for ''half a chapter'', but somehow spun out to be BigBad of a whole saga. Reviewers have commented that he seems to have done his job as a {{Parody|Sue}} BlackHoleSue a little too well.
*** Actually, it's a little more complicated. The ''original'' original idea was a regular parody sue existing for half a chapter... that became Makarov. [[FridgeHorror Bugger]].
