My Little Unicorn

Why the author hates Friendship so much...
Okay, this might be a bit of armchair psychology, but bear with me: I think the author hates "friendship" because he was bullied for watching kiddie shows and admitting it to others. It's common for people on the Autism spectrum to not only have narrow interests, but also to be targeted by bullies because they don't know how to act around other people. Perhaps someone pretended to be friends with him only to mock him behind his back and/or trick him into doing something embarrassing. I'm also imagining some sort of coddling, bible-thumping parent behind him who refuses to get him diagnosed because of the misconception that autistic people are retarded, but maybe I'm reading too far into this. Whatever the case, this guy has some serious issues. I kinda feel sorry for him, actually.
  • Confirmed by certain indications of the author. Still, just because he has a problem with certain people does not excuse him for writing a story like this. There are more awful things on the 'net, but the sheer hatred the author has shown for the show is disgusting.
  • He actually hates the show just because a brony made fun of him. I'm dead serious.
  • Having a bad childhood is not an excuse to act like a total jackass to everyone that doesn't agree with him. You're talking about someone who thinks that his fanfics are more important than events such as 9/11, told someone who mocked him that his father deserved to die, told another person who mocked his work that she was a slut that deserved to be raped, and at one point wished for an entire website to suffer simply because they picked on some of his fanfics. This is not how someone should behave.
  • Some have speculated that the whole "bad childhood" thing is probably just a lie for sympathy.
    • Either a lie or a gross exaggeration.
  • Partially Confirmed, he did comment on deviant art, that he attended religious schools "that didn't allow [the holocaust as a] sort of teaching". He also mentioned his family isn't very idealistic, and genuinely believe therapy won't help him. He's still a deluded hypocrite though...

Maybe it's just because it stands out more because he is annoying, but Rhymey seems to get the most dialogue, not counting Lightning, Celesto, Titan, and maybe Krysta. Perhaps the author thinks the rhyming gimmick is clever and amusing rather than annoying like most of the readers think. He is also the only character other than Celesto and Lightning to have a love interest— and a very popular canon character as it, to boot.

"Titan" is an alternate universe version of Titan from "The Immortal Game".
In this universe, Grand Ruler Celesto stole the powers of the alternate universe equivlents of Luna and Candace to become a "Tri-Horned Winged Unicorn", and developed the Uniforce to defeat and seal away Titan. This gave Titan severe brain damage, and over thousands of years his mental state deteriorated to the point that his only emotion became hatred of Unicornicopia. Grand Ruler Celesto, meanwhile gave into paranoia, and instituted all the implied ethnic clensings and totalitarian policies in fear that Titan's eyes and ears were everywhere, Eventually leading to him making Lightning as a living weapon against Titan (since of course the Ruler is to afraid of Titan to face him again).

Mind you, this doesn't explain why the canon characters are out of character. Maybe he has a brainwashing spell?
  • Judging by the disturbing fascistic implications, of course he'd have a brainwashing spell.

Better yet...

The author is AestheticB.
Think about it: The two main villains are named Titan and Terra.

TITAN and TERRA.

  • Okay, do you have anything else that can back up this theory of yours?
  • That would make Aesthetic the troll to end all trolls.

The author will sooner or later ship every member of the mane cast with made up characters.
The author is known for writing fanfics just for the sake of shipping some characters together, not caring much for their personalities. It doesn`t sound so far fetched that he may ship Twilight with some color swap of her own brother.
  • Well, he has already paired up Rhymey with Fluttershy...
  • If that's going to be the case, then I'm willing to bet that the following things will happen:
    • Applejack will hook up with Buddy Rose, and Mykan will most likely rip off something from Teen Titans that involved Beast Boy and Terra, and use some cheesy love songs from one or more Disney movies in the process.
    • Dyno and Myte will end up fighting over Rainbow Dash, who doesn't catch onto it for the longest time, making it a Running Gag for half of if not the entire "season". When she finally does catch on, she chooses one of them and the one she rejected gets together with Pinkie Pie some time shortly after.
    • Artie is going to be with Rarity and Mykan will probably find some idiotic way to kill off Spike to avoid any kind of Love Triangle-related conflict from him involving that couple.
  • Twilight and a Palette Swap of Shining Armor?! Eww!
  • One problem: he killed off Twilight Sparkle somewhere in "Season" three.

The author is an avatar of Discord.
Think about it: He despises the idea of friendship and order, wants to force his own chaotic ideas on the show and embodies the opposites of the Elements of Harmony. Also, his childish tantrums are reminiscent of how Discord acted, when Fluttershy managed to withstand his manipulation.
  • Then why was Discord killed?
    • All part of the plan to make the readers believe, the loyal minion of Discord is just an insane closet brony. Recent hints on fimchan indicate he may bring Discord back as a joke villain.
  • I don't think even Discord would do something like this.
  • If Discord wrote something like this, the characters would not be as flat and boring as they are, and it would definitely not play up blind obedience as a good thing.
    • Well he wanted blind obedience from the mane 6, and he appears to like mind controlling people.
Titan is not dead.
He survived being blown up once, why should a second time (when he actually was even more powerful) give him the rest? It is possible he is just hiding, waiting up the right moment to strike again.
  • Confirmed. He's back in "The Movie".

The author is, in fact, Michael Bay.
Bay already tried to turn the turtles into aliens and has no respect for already existing franchises. What if the stories are in fact just his first attempts for a movie script regarding "My Little Pony"? It would explain why the characters are so flat, racist, why explosions happen most of the time, and why the entire thing is an ugly mess.
  • Not to mention many of his fanfics follow the plot of Armageddon.
  • If we couple this with the previously-mentioned "author is Discord" theory, then that also means that Michael Bay is Discord and vice-versa. Make of that what you will.
  • And not only that but he also has the awkward romances of Bay!
  • Micheal Bay didn't try to turn the Turtles into aliens. He got brought in after the scriptwriter decided on it. Y'know, since he was only a producer?
The author is the opposite of a furry.
He is obsessed with turning the characters into humanoid abominations as far as he can and he actually admited to have a hard on for Celestia. Sounds for me like the opposite of a very perverted furry.
  • What. Don't you mean part furry or armor-closeted furry in denial? I mean if he has a crush on Celestia yet he's not a furry... I am thinking about this way too hard.

Why Techno isn't in the story...
Upon watching the introductory YouTube video for the series, one will notice that a robot pony named Techno appears in the character list yet doesn't appear in the story.
  • What Could Have Been, maybe? He had plans to include him but couldn't think of a way? He has already dropped characters who have appeared with little resolution before.
  • Maybe he'll introduce him in another installment.
  • It's very likely that the concept of Techno (evil robotic horse) was instead used for Fratello.

My Little Unicorn will become so infamous that the Starfleet members will end up in the Trope Pantheons under the Disgraces.
It just might be god-awful enough to do it. The Disgraces already have Ebony Darkness Dementia Raven Way, Jenna Silverblade, Sonichu, Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, among dozens of others, so why not add a whole group of horrible "original" characters to be the gods and goddesses of way too many Mary Sues/Gary Stus?
  • It's already happened. Three characters are in there already, with more sure to follow as the fic becomes better known.

Inbreeding is rampant among the Unicornicopians.
The author has stated that the population of Unicornicopia is mostly male, and inbreeding would explain some of the less than intelligent actions of the characters (I.E. Characters choosing not to fly over a dangerous forest when they could and characters choosing to hang out with Rhymey).
  • That disturbingly explains a lot.

What are they supposed to believe in?
Not in themselves, but in him! They believe in the Dakari-King Mykan who believes in them! Sorry for this, but it had to be said. And I'm surprised nobody posted this here already...
  • Well the Accidental Aesop I learned, is to believe in the nazi style leadership of the Starfleet Empire. That and you shouldn't question there police force, just believe they're good.

The author is a devoured soul who went mad while being trapped inside a mannequin in the Land of Desire in Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong-Nou, and is using all remaining sanity pleading to be free from the land of Tong-Nou.
  • Let's face it, if you know the game at least well enough, King-Gyou is a fucking dick, using one of the 8 souls Tou-Gyou had called to save him to literally be instantly killed on the spot before reincarnation, and also try to trick another into giving them their own belongings, promising a gem that you won't ever get. That, and the mental state of the fanfic author is questionable, and the viewpoint of the game's creator is very surreal and odd. It isn't true, sure, but it is a pretty odd mental image that might explain something.
