Fan Fic / The Disney Chronicles

Go To

The Disney Chronicles is a series of crossovers between the Disney Animated Canon and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Once upon a time, in the magical land of Equestria, Spike the Dragon finds a falling star that lands within the Castle of the Two Sisters. There, he discovers a strange book and takes it home to show Twilight and her friends. Opening it, they learn that the book is known as the Book of Disney, containing a wide variety of stories. The ponies also discover that reading each story opens a portal to a new world where the stories come to life around them.


As of now, this series is ongoing, with many future installments planned.

The fanfics, in chronological order, are:

The Disney Chronicles contains tropes of:

  • Adaptation Expansion: Each story gets this treatment. For example:
    • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:
      • A chapter in the story featured the deleted song Music in Your Soup.
      • When Prince Florian returns to the Evil Queen's castle looking for Snow White, he rescues the captive Starlight Glimmer. Starlight then joins him on his search for the princess.
    • Fantasia:
      • The entire premise. While the original film had no set story that connected the worlds for each segment, the fic adapts the premise of the Symphony of Sorcery, with the players' sheet music going missing and the ponies having to search each segment's world to find them.

  • Adaptational Karma: In the original film, the Coachman was a Karma Houdini. In Disney Chronicles II, however, he meets his end when he falls off a cliff, much like how he did in the SNES game.
  • Cosmic Keystone: The Book of Disney. According to one of the series' installments, Walt Disney created it to place many stories inside it. Since the worlds and all their characters are alive, if someone or something were to destroy the book, everything within it will vanish, with no chance of ever returning.
  • For Want of a Nail: The contact between the Disney worlds and Equestria hugely affects the outcome of the stories. Examples include:
    • Pinocchio:
      • When the ponies discover the truth about Pleasure Island, they rescue all the boys who were turned into donkeys, fighting off the Coachman and his goons. Then, after the Blue Fairy changes the boys back, the ponies return them to their parents in the village. And as a result of the fight, the Coachman dies when he falls off a cliff to his Disney Villain Death.
      • At the end of the story, Jiminy Cricket follows the ponies back through the portal to Equestria and joins them on their subsequent adventures.

    • Fantasia:
      • The ponies' presence in the Rite of Spring segment and their attachment to the dinosaurs there leads to them saving several baby dinosaurs from joining the rest of their kind in extinction.
      • Also, in the Intermission, Octavia's compliment with the Soundtrack lead to him seemingly falling in love with her.
      • In the Pastoral Symphony, Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash get into a fight with Zeus. The outcome of this battle ends with the world's inhabitants hailing the ponies as heroes.
  • Suddenly Speaking: Most of the major characters in each segment of Fantasia, who are all able to talk as they interact with the ponies.

How well does it match the trope?
