The interest in this may've waned, but I had an idea for a Game of Thrones MLP fanfic a while back, with several scenes and a fairly extensive premise/narrative. I wondered if anyone here would like to discuss the idea, as I found it very interesting to think about.



The general premise may seem predictable enough, a fusion of Equestria and Westeros. Places is Westeros are replaced from places in Equestria, and various characters are fitted into various character/narrative roles. Typical enough to start with, even droll I fear. This concerned me enough that I never got the time to write it, except for several Pinkie Pie Tyrion scenes, which I greatly enjoyed (I even got pictures for them).


The really interesting part, was the twists on the original narrative map that came from fusing the elements. For example, Twilight Sparkle (playing the part of Ned Stark) has a baby dragon, Spike. Everyone is amazed and comments on Spike, as dragons were thought to be myth or all gone. At the same time, Spike's unimpressive nature feeds the idea he's just some talking lizard, not a true dragon. From one detail from the show, the existence of Spike, a lot could change.



There is a whole document of notes on the subject, so just a few random tidbits instead:

Discord was the Mad King who Celestia defeated. Things get interesting, when he returns.

Maud takes the part of Jamie Lannister, and Rainbow Dash the role of Brienne of Tarth. The scenes where RD is escorting Maud which came to mind were... very amusing, quite a change of pace from the original.

On that note, I was scattering the main six across the major houses of Westeros, intentionally. That had some long term implications for a uniting of Westeros.

Shining Armour played the role of the previous Hand of the King. After his death, Cadance becomes a Crazy Cat Lady (as Pinkie Pie suspected).

The Apple Raiders, whose motto is, We Sow Where We Like! Who plant pesky apple trees everywhere they attack, forcing the ponies of other islands to tend to the trees and pay harvests.

Fluttershy, despite being the Mother of Dragons, is still terrified of them. That's why Discord made her such.



Those are some random bits. I can go into more if anyone is interested.
