A My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic crossover with BioShock by MrPockets.

Sixteen years after the events of FiM, the six former Elements of Harmony have moved on with their own lives and rarely see each other anymore. Pinkie invites the group to Manehattan for a reunion, but things spiral wildly out of control, and they end up in the decaying, underwater city of Rapture. The old friends square off against everything its leader Summer Rain can throw at them, including crazed splicers, the fearsome Big Stags, and the Little Fillies they protect.

Will they be able to pull together to save the sunken wonder, and their strained friendship?

  • Jerkass Realization: Rainbow Dash plans on ditching her friends' week-long reunion halfway through to make a flight show Fillydelphia on time.

  • What the Hell, Hero?: As their cruise ship sinks with only the Mane Five on board, Pinkie goes straight-maned and blows up at everyone for ruining her week-long plans among other things: Rainbow Dash for trying to ditch them; Rarity for trying to save her dress designs instead of her friends; and Applejack and Fluttershy for taking too long while everypony else on the ship took all the lifeboats.
