Consequences of Unoriginality is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan fiction story by Andoriol.When Emeris Fillson is transported to Equestria, he finds himself turned not just into a pony but into an Alicorn, and a Gary Stu at that. Thanks to a curse that Emeris calls the Gary-Stu-ness Effect, or GSE, he is better than anypony at any of their special talents (especially when in direct competition), is loved obsessively by everypony he comes across aside from Celestia and, worst of all, is a Doom Magnet that continually brings devastation to Equestria in the form of monsters that only he can stop, and not without collateral damage.After two years of this nightmare, Emeris and Celestia manage to break the curse and turn him into a Unicorn/Earth pony hybrid - and then the story begins, as Emeris attempts to make up for all the trouble he has unintentionally brought to Equestria.Also has a Scrapbook Story spinoff by the same author, Letters From a Fascinated but Frustrated Scientist, as well as an Alternate Universe story in the form of Twisted Reflections of Consequences: The Despair of Gary Stu where everybody BUT Celestia hates him.
