The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

I’d like to see a story involving Fluttershy, Soarin, & Rainbow Dash in a pseudo-love triangle!
 
“Pseudo” because Fluttershy isn’t attracted to either Soarin or Dash but is terrified of hurting their feelings.

So, who’s attracted to who? Is it Soarin -> Dash -> Fluttershy? Dash -> Soarin -> Fluttershy?

I tell you something, I hate crossovers something fierce.
 
But with the right IP used, it becomes brilliant. Two I would like to do are with the obscure, in-the-making RPG Mortasheen. It’s not for the weak of heart or stomach, but I would love to bring my two great obsessions together.
 
One would be a kind of HiE story, except the human is a mad scientist zombie, who wants to experiment on the local flora, fauna and populai.
 
The second, which I would much rather do, would feature the well-respected mutant Celestia making herself a sister/lab assistant out of Luna, who meets the Sombra, a high ranking member of an enemy organization whom Celestia killed earlier, turning him into a zombie.

I really want to do or see a crossover with The Binding of Isaac, but they’re so dissimilar, it’s nearly impossible. Well, I suppose if it worked for the Fallout series…

I’ve actually thought of that, too.
 
Remember that fear is the basis for everything that happens in BoI? Well, how about this: a cellar left untouched in the crystal palace is opened, and leads to an empty room that functions much like the Fear Door, but elevates your fears into their (il)logical extremes and the experince has to be fought out of by weaponizing your negative emotion, your fear, which is what dark magic is based on!
 
Coincidently, I would also make a mod for the game based on that.

I first had this idea before Season 3, since I thought “Hey, Discord could be Satan, he even has a ‘statue’ form!”
 
But your idea sounds a lot better than mine.

Now, what trials will our new heroines face to earn their elements? Well, we know what Screwball must do to get defiance. How about the others?

That’s….where I’m facing holes.
 
Other than Sunset needing a small project that turns into a Cheknov’s later on, I have no idea what the others could do to earn theirs. Maybe:
 
Trixie-write a new spell?  
Octavia-face something that will destroy her bit by bit while she soliders through?  
Gilda-wake the dead?  
Lightning-do something impossible?
 
I’m stumped. On an unrelated note, does anyone know good ideas for the funeral practices of crystal ponies. It’s for a quick oneshot.

Maybe make a crystal effigy of the dead ones and bury them underground?  
Also, I can see Gilda as the Necromancer from Castle Crashers.

I have the desire to write a sequel to Brad’s Snobby Dad where Brad Flash Sentry and his father, Brad “Cinema Snob” Jones enter Equestria, but the only joke I can make from it is:
 
“So yer tellin’ me ah can make a lotta money by dancin’?” Applejack asked.
 
“Yeah… There’s a bit more to it than that, and trust me, there’s a way to earn even more money, but I want to discuss that privately.” said Jones.

Okay, I want my character to say a chant as she pays her respects to her victim in my story. How does this sound for a chant for crystal ponies to say at funerals:
 
Your body cold,  
Returns to stone.

 
Your soul freed,  
It’s light has shown.

 
Your mind spent,  
is all but gone.

 
Now let your heart,  
Guide you home.

 
How’s that? Could it be better?

@Ore-O  
Feel free to see the fic it’s in and tell me what you think.
 
Now, Trixie’s greatest, element gaining achievement is to write a spell. I call it the VitaSomni, because it works by making something in a dream alive. The big deal about that is that while Trixie can make very simple things that already exists, and grows better in illusions as the story goes on, making something that not doesn’t exist (yet) and creating it with a life and mind of it’s own is something that has never been done before.
 
It’s basically a harder version of what every kid in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends could do.

@Ore-O  
The only clear thing is that she feels really, super bad about killing him.
 
I may be one of the few that see the princess of love as someone who would never kill someone on purpose.
 
And there are some other, Headcanon reasons for why she feels bad.

For Octavia: Maybe a radical group wants to change the government but she must restrain them to prevent a violent revolution.
 
For Gilda: Bringing her favorite band back together after they have broken up for 20 or so years and motivating them.
 
For Lightning Dust: She must get a group of very bored and lazy students to find a way to get excited for school.

Those will all work!
 
I even know exactly what group to use for Octy and Lightning’s is perfect for how I want to develop her character.
 
My only problem with Gilda’s is that I’ll have to make up a band for it.
 
But whatever shall Sunset do? Make and become Mayor of her own town?
