Fanfic / The Conversion Bureau MST

Go To

The Conversion Bureau is a popular My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfic in the show's fanbase which spawned many SpinOffs. One day a group of people on Ponychan decided to do an MST of it from which the end result can be found here.

Many years later, the people behind it(and the Past Sins and Magic is Believing MSTs, of course) came together to revive the series as Fanfic Theater 3015, which has been going strong ever since.


The Conversion Bureau provides examples of:

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Methods through which humans have destroyed their world include poisoning the oceans, corrupt politicians, and, "That nasty stain on the bathroom floor!"
  • Interspecies Romance: One riffer mentions Ethan asking a pony receptionist if she's "bi-species." Later, it is mentioned that, "It turns out that bi-species isn't actually a thing."
  • Some of My Best Friends Are X: When Ethan compares talking to a pony with interacting with a talking dog, one riffer responds, "Hey, some of my best friends are talking dogs."
  • 20 Minutes into the Future: Discussed at one point when Ethan uses MapQuest.
  • You Keep Using That Word: The word "joke" is used so much—and often for things that aren't really funny—that it loses all meaning.
    Ezn: I think the author needs to get a better understanding of this word "joke".
    Vimbert: "What is this thing you call 'humor'?"


How well does it match the trope?
