Added DiffLines:

* INeedAFreakingDrink: [[TheComicallySerious Pinkamena]] is [[GenreBlind oblivious to this]]
--> '''Pinkamena''': "Have you talked to Inky about her drinking problem? She does seem to startle very easily, she seemed to get quite hysterical when my head came out of the sink."

Added DiffLines:

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Unlike [[RuleOfFunny Pinkie's use of her powers]], Pinkamena uses hers to maintain a business empire.
--> "If I can go anywhere I like in Equestria in a blink of an eye, manipulate future events, or even create more of myself to work on tasks more efficiently, itís just all far too useful not to use them to the very fullest"


* [[IHatePastMe I Hate Alternate-Universe Me]] Twilight really resents Sparks, because she is essentially a walking failure in her eyes. She's aware that Sparks doesn't deserve it, but just looking at Sparks makes her tap into dark magic and causing dark crystals to pile up.

* FandomNod:
** A New Solar Republican gets mentioned in Chapter 9 of the original.
** Other Cadance [[spoiler: had her wings actually implanted, reflecting some fandom beliefs that she wasn't really an alicorn, which were removed by Other Nightmare Moon. Except not really to the former.]]
** "She'd even been tempted last time to ask [Cloudchaser] how exactly she styled her amazing mane before deciding it would have really not projected the right note of leadership."

* BaVarianFireDrill: During ''Coincidences'', when Ms Harshwhinny passes through accompanied by some guards, the protagonists make themselves inconspicuous by simply pretending that they're there for a good reason and certainly doesn't need to be bothered; Pinkamena starts discussing tax code, Trixie and Sparks takes the opportunity to make out with each other, and Captain Fluttershy just acts like herself.

Added DiffLines:

* LovelyAssistant: The Spectacular Sparks ends up as stage assistant to the Awesome and Stupendous Rainbow Dash, sparkly leotard and all. [[spoiler:Trixie asks Twilight if she needs an assistant, too, although library assistants usually don't wear sparkly leotards.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LoopholeAbuse: Pinkamena is under oath to never go against Nightmare Moon, and she considers it binding. Except she's specifically made the oath to Princess Luna's name (as Nightmare Moon is using her former identity in some matters for legality). Obviously, using the Elements to free Luna from the Nightmare cannot be considered "going against her".

Added DiffLines:

* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Other Zecora admits that storming Canterlot with a horde of barely-controlled monsters was not a good plan.


Added DiffLines:

* MesACrowd: Pinkamena can do this even without using the Mirror Pool. ''With'' the Pool, she can produce thousands of clones. Best distraction ever.

Added DiffLines:

** Sparks does one when Trixie tries to recruit her as a showmare for Other Trixie.

Added DiffLines:

** Other Fluttershy [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E7Dragonshy killed that dragon.]]


* ShipperOnDeck: Trixie sets Sparks up with her Other self - in part because it will be good for Sparks to get out of the library, but also because Other Trixie deserves a better marefriend than a multichromatic diva who can't stay faithful. This works out very well.

* FlatWhat: Delivered by Rainbow Dash upon finding out that she got out-flown by an alternate version of ''Fluttershy''.



** RainbowDash confirms that it's possible. No guesses for how she's figured that out.
