* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: So... so many...
** Every origin story features this, with Scootaloo being any of the following: [[BurnNotice A Burned Spy]], [[{{Superman}} The Last Daughter of Krypton]], [[ChickenBoo A giant chicken]], [[Film/BackToTheFuture A]] [[BoosterGold Time]] [[{{Terminator}} Traveler]], TheAngelOfDeath, a human-turned-pony, [[KamenRider a japanese superhero]], [[Literature/SleepingBeauty a princess]], and Princess Celestia in disguise.
** Most of the characters from the show are given alternate interpretations:
*** Mrs. Cake is a Shipper.
*** Iron Will is TheRock meets Creator/ConanOBrien. Of course, makes having a Scootaloo story pretty much the ''only'' deviation from his show portrayal.
*** Princess Cadence is [[SexGod suffering from PTSD which causes her to force ponies to love each other]].
*** Also, and ''especially,'' we get an alternative interpretation of {{Fanon}} Scootaloo when we get the ''real'' story. [[spoiler: Her quite normal existence of course turns the outlandish stories Twilight's been given so far on their heads, of course, but {{Fanon}} considers her lack of visible parents indicative of a lack of ''any'' parents, and her lack of flight to be a disability - that bit eventually semi-confirmed in "Flight to the Finish." Here? Instead of Scoots being abused or a homeless orphan, she has a decent home, where her parents are quite alive and quite sweet. They live on the edge of town and that's why you don't see them turning up at school or before/after Cutie Mark Crusader adventures. Even the usual flight angst is averted: Her mom is a pegasus and her dad is an earth pony, and Scootaloo sees herself not as a disabled pegasus, but as an earth pony with the ''added bonus'' of little wings which she can use to propel her scooter faster and even hover a little. That doctor's office scene you've seen a million times in fanfic and fanart where Scootaloo is wailing in anguish as she is given the news that she'll never fly? ''Impossible'' here.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: It's all but stated in [[SelfInsert the author's titular chapter]] that this is the reason why Derpy and Dinky made a reappearance.
* {{Fanon}}: Ever since the Fluttershy chapter, some have adopted Fluttershy being the author of ''JustForFun/DaringDo'' as their headcanon.
* HilariousInHindsight: The ''Newhart''-style ending with an infant Twilight hugging a Scootaloo doll is even better upon reading the sequel, ''Crisis Of Infinite Twilights'', where Baby Twilight joins the cast.
** The NoodleIncident about what Twilight does with a brownie, after "Twilight Time" showed that she has JabbaTableManners with fast food.
* TheWoobie: Twilight, especially in some of the later chapters when the stories have traumatised her to the point that her reaction to an incoming story is to hide in a closet.
** Also applies to the last chapter when she cries upon realising that even Princess Celestia was messing with her, just in [[OverlyPrepreparedGag a much more elaborate fashion]] that everypony else.
