The story starts out similar to other Conversion Bureau works: TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture with Earth being very much in terrible, no-good shape due to overpopulation, over-foresting, overfishing, over-pollution, about every 'over' one could think of. On top of that, TheSingularity is in the process of occurring, and most of the 9.5 billion strong human population isn't going to be part of it.

* AssimilationPlot: While this is a stated goal of those who believe in the Conversion Movement, as it is later known, Celestia and Luna intentionally slow walk things; to the point where most of the public remain unmoved to Convert mostly out of apathy.

* SugarBowl: Averted somewhat with AU Equestria. It is better than Earth only because PowersThatBe for Equestria are a pair of Alicorns who genuinely want the best for their 'people' and environment, whereas for Earth, they largely stopped caring ([[Main/ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney or were paid not to care.]])
* TrainingFromHell: Due to Luna's rather, out-moded ways, this ends up being ''how'' the Four Conduits are trained in both Equestrian Magic and Terran Magic (the latter of which was especially hard to do since to that point in the story ONLY the Conduits could perform Terran Magic at all.)

* ColorCodedWizardry: All Terran Magic has a signature color: Blue Water, Red Fire, Green Earth, Gold Wind. When the 'Mixed' Elements are found, they follow the same pattern: Periwinkle Lightning, Aquamarine Ice, Forest Green Wood, Silver Metal, White Light, and Dark Violet Shadow

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Largely averted. While almost everyone not explicitly in a desperately poor country have cybernetic implants, they mostly show no ill-effects of it. The more extant danger to the soul is the absolute lack of a creative outlet, aside from trying desperately to be noticed and recognized on the World Wide Web.

* GaiasLament: This in spades. Few if any dare set foot out of a city not because of some law or extant danger, but because over-industrialization has made anywhere not settled by humans eerily quiet and dreadfully boring. This leads to most Converts being completely floored by Equestria live and in person, mostly because the whole world doesn't seem like a neutral-color abusing, prefabricated cut-out.

The Conversion Bureau: A New Age is a Fanfiction set in the larger metaverse of [[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau The Conversion Bureau]] written by [=BlueDWarrior=]. The first part can be read ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/16393/The-Conversion-Bureau%3A-A-New-Age%2C-A-New-Life Here at FimFiction]]''

The story starts out similar to other Conversion Bureau works: TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture with Earth being very much in terrible, no-good shape due to overpopulation, over-foresting, overfishing, over-pollution, about every 'over' one could think of. On top of that, TheSingularity is in the process of occurring, and much of the 9.5 Billion human population are stuck on the outs more or less.

So what is humanity to do?

[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Enter Technicolor Ponies of course!]]

It is about at that point that the similarities to most existing Conversion Bureau works end.

The story itself focuses on four human friends and how their connection grow over time, and how they find themselves caught up in the two worlds about to undergo to truly massive changes.
