The first (though second in-universe) in the fanfiction family of stories made by Thunderscourge titled "The Path of the Pariah" taking place in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic universe of Equestria while also crossing over with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in particular Thor. Taking place before the end of the third season of Friendship is Magic, the story begins with Loki's arrival on the planet after his defeat and fall from grace in Thor. Angry, alone, and confused by his new environment, Loki continues on with his rage and sadness until he comes across another who has walked the same path as him: Princess Luna.
Once the two meet and hash out their similarities and differences they find that settling their personal problems does not mean outside forces will not want to meddle: Chrysalis, Thanos, and even the mysterious Hela all continue to stir up the pot. During this all Luna takes on an apprentice, Trixie, to rival her sister's own student, unknowingly setting another soul down the same path of heartbreak she and Loki each survived.
Originally intended to be a oneshot, the story was expanded past its original plans to a single story arc, at which point it was extended again to a full blown storyline lasting eighty chapters and an epilogue. It continues to be occasionally updated with "non-canon" story bits that take place after the story's conclusion or are ideas that were unable to be used during the main story that take place in it.
Takes place after "Nothing Lasts Forever" (which is a canon supplement) and before "Equestria Was Merely a Setback" (which is of dubious canon).
Title comes from Five Finger Death Punch's song "Remember Everything", but is not a song-fic.
Has a character page that is in need of love.
We Remember Everything contains examples of:
- Action Girl: Luna, Trixie, Twilight, and Celestia (before her Badass Decay wrought by various factors).
- Alas, Poor Villain:
- Invoked with Laufey, who is shown as ruthless yet fair, as well as a King who does what he must for his race.
- Subverted by the Sirens, particularly Adagio and Aria (YMMV on Sonata). They are selfish to the very end and turn on one another, only to be swatted aside and defeated in a pitiable manner.
- Played straight by Trixie: the stresses and cracks from her life are chipped away at and torn apart during the story, with the seams coming loose at the very end with her seeming Suicide by Cop by her own mentor.
- Always Second Best / Always Someone Better: Loki and Luna each feel this way towards their respective siblings. In her rivalry towards Twilight Trixie ends up feeling the same, mirroring the arc of the other protagonists, though defying it on purpose by burying the hatchet midway through the story.
- Ascended Meme: At first Kael's connection to Trixie was meant to be a joke, but commenters focusing on the romantic possibility between the two led to characters in-universe lampshading the situation and even thinking that something was going on between the two beyond what they were admitting.
- Badass Family: Loki, Luna, Trixie, Celestia, Thor, Frigga, Odin, and Twilight each prove their worth as fighters during the story. Woe be those who fight them together.
- Berserk Button:
- For Loki, his adoptive family early on in the story, as he is still fresh from his fall in Thor and bitter with how they treated him. Once he mends fences with them, this is reversed and any who harm them can expect Loki to unleash Tranquil Fury upon them.
- Hurting anyone Luna cares about is a one way trip to Hel, with each wound inflicted upon them either physical or mental giving Luna another level of resolve to put the offender down.
- Trixie thinks so little of herself that bruising her ego leads to her anger or breakdown depending on the situation.
- Big Bad: A new one each arc, though for most of the story they are under the shadow of Thanos.
- In the first arc, Chrysalis and Loki each serve a part as the Big Bad, with Thanos pulling the strings.
- In the Avengers arc, Loki at first until he reveals Thanos as the influence behind him and quickly switches sides.
- Odin, in some forms, acts as this by imprisoning Loki and refusing to grant him mercy beyond his life during the third arc.
- Hela acts as the villain during her own introductory arc by serving as a malevolent and petty force of nature that seeks to twist and torture those who have done wrong. For once Thanos is not the ultimate bad but rather subservient to her.
- Following this Lorelai tries to serve as a Big Bad in her own arc, but clever thinking on the behalf of the protagonists leads to her swift defeat.
- Malekith is the villain following this in the Dark Elf arc.
- Following this, the Sirens aim to be the Big Bads and take over everything, but are really just being played by Trixie to fuel her encounter with Thanos, leading Thanos to take this position. Tirek attempts to vie for the spot, but is swiftly defeated.
- Big Damn Heroes: Multiple times, but most notably when Thor, Lady Sif, and the Warriors Three arrive in Hel to save Loki and the others from Thanos. Unfortunately for them, Thanos proves to be far more than a match for them and Volstagg ends up trapped there.
- Another notable instance is the final battle with Thanos, where a series of these occur with each one just barely saving those who fought before them from certain death.
- Big Eater: Sleep Near seems to require far more nourishment than his twin, hinting at his giant size later on.
- Big Good: Luna intends to be this, but her own selfishness keeps her from fully becoming it.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: Luna resents Celestia but has gotten over it mostly (Until she becomes Nightmare Moon again), Loki resents Thor and Odin, Loki and Luna bond and then come to blows when Thanos threatens Loki, Luna takes Trixie under her wing but unintended coldness breaks her apprentices heart, Trixie is half-siblings with Blueblood yes, there is quite the messed up family. It gets better though.
- Black Sheep: The premise of the story, really. Wounded anti-hero/anti-villain souls coming together and trying to help eachother, as pain begets pain, who all come from messed up family situations.
- Butt-Monkey: Flash Sentry and Blueblood spend each and every appearance they have being demeaned in some manner, with Luna actively encouraging this behavior in others because of how the two irritate her. This is Author Appeal, for Thunderscourge hates both of the characters and wanted to get digs in at them at every occasion possible, though he kept Flash nameless for most of the story to allow fans of him to pretend it was not him.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Sonata, natch. She goes from talking about nonsense to propositioning Trixie and Kael without missing a beat, her head having no comprehension or normal interactions. A possible side effect of spending a thousand years away from her world and losing her mind, though ironically she is the only one able to think back to before then.
- Cool Horse: All of the main protagonists, at one point or another, given the setting.
- FaceHeel Turn: Loki, early on, but he gets better quickly.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: Early in the story Loki is stuck at his Heel position from the end of Thor, but his interactions with Luna set him on a path towards the Face side of things...only for Thanos to meddle and direct him back to the Heel with the aid of a corrupting artifact, and so the cycle continues. By the time the Avengers Arc has ended, Loki is left in-between the two and finally settles as a Face after his trials in the Hela arc.
- Ragsto Riches: Trixie at the start of the story is shown to be without a bit to her name, but quickly her fortune rises as Luna takes her under her wing.
