I've been giving this project a lot of thought over the past few days. It still holds a lot of promise and can be an epic tale. All that seems to be lacking is activity. Why that is I don't know. Maybe it is that lack of communication between the people involved, maybe it is the lack a clear plot line. Or maybe it is something else that I can't see.
Whatever the reason I don't want to see this project die and become dust in the winds of the Internet.
Just to help out here is a repost of the core fic ideas Nathan has thought of.
Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns is a front for a program set up to find unicorn's of particularly incredible power who are then trained by Celestia herself and recruited into a special task force. This task force is sent to deal with anything that threatens the carefully constructed lies and rule of Celestia. This fic would center on Trixie, who experienced a power "snap" similar to Twilight's and was taken in by Celestia as a student. She now leads the special task force. The purpose behind her trip to Ponyville was to provide Twilight with a field test.
Idea #2: The Doctor discovers the crippled Bright Eyes at the Fillydelphia Mental Hospital and swears revenge against the ponies that did this to her. Potentially a core fic.
Idea #3: Twilight (who, unbeknownst to her, is being set up as the leader of the task force) receives one of the 50 letters and begins to question her role in Celestia's kingdom. Leads to her turning against Celestia and finding herself in a leadership position of the rebellion. CORE FIC
Now here is and idea that could be used with all of these stories.
There is little to no canon about the Equstrian Royal Guard. So that gives us some room to work with seeing how if there is going to be a rebellion then they will have to face the guard at some point.
My idea is that the guard is split into 10 divisions. Each with a captain at the head. The first division would be the Royal guard, which guards the princess and the castle. With the other 9 being regular guard units in charge of specific job. Like handling creatures from the Everfree Forest that get loose or a division of spies. That sort of thing. Tixie’s task force could be a secret division, lets call it division Zero. ((And yes in case your wondering I did get the idea of the divisions from watching Bleach. So sue me XP))
This is just and idea and can be thrown out if need be.
Hopefully I will be posting my side fic in a few days. It will be a revised verion of the one I posted here before with more added on to it.
