YMMV: All-American Girl

2002 novel by Meg Cabot and its sequel:

My Little Pony fan-fic by Shinzakura:

  • Broken Base: The Spacebattles forum inevitably gets horribly heated whenever the topic of the fic is brought up. Some love it, some despise it, all have incredibly strong opinions on it. Fim Fic users also have strong opinions on the story, but are far less vocal about it.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Each of the mares in the COMBS arc, to varying degrees of reader sympathy.
    • Rarity and Silversteel cross into this after their treatment of DJ's family during their reunion with her. Rarity has been considerably more persistent about the "Jerkass", part, while Silversteel has begun to make amends with them.
  • Magnificent Harridelle: Champagne Dreams a.k.a. Sunset Shimmer. There is nothing that she won't do to protect her family, even destroying every other family on the planet.
  • Meaningful Name: During the Christmas special, we are introduced to Mike's cousin Joe and his wife Mary. While their personalities are well different, the names may reflect that of Joseph and Mary, two figures central to the Christian Christmas mythos.
  • Product Placement: The author will occasionally mention Claude & Monet which is a webcomic he writes.
  • Shout-Out/Take That: depending on how you look at it, DJ's comment of "we girls can do anything, right, Barbie?" can either be seen as a pastiche of, or a parody of Mattel's slogan for their flagship product.
