These are just my ideas for something I’ve always wanted to do.
A longer version of the Pilot episodes’ events. I think they do good at introducing the characters.
But I have my own preferences that I would like to see.
Like a longer adventure. More interactiond between Twilight and the other ponies. Twilight having a slower character arc about her believing friendship is a good thing and not a waste.
This could be considered by some to be a bit of a fix fic, but I prefer think of it as just my own take on things. Things will therefore be different from the show. Characters might have different traits, or even traits swapped with another character as I see interesting.
This is really its own universe.
I’ll make more notes later of what I’ll be writing about.

Good luck with this story. I’ve always been a fan of alternate continuities, even if I’ve got none to my name.
And there’s a vast gulf between fix fics and exploring possibilities. Your own take on things, like you said. Really, the early history of G4 fanfictions was filled with alternate pilot episodes.

For Twilight.
She’s just like she was in the show but more snarky, cynical, sarcastic and grumpy. So like a much milder version of Mentally Advanced Twilight, except that she still worships Celestia and tries to be polite to other ponies.
In this fanfic not only is Twilight dislike having friends, she’s actually afraid of it. She’s worried about if they’ll let her down but more importantly how she might let them down. She had some very strained friendships when she was younger making her think it wasn’t meant for her and would be a waste of time. Despite all of this, she deep down really does want to have true friends and have it all work out instead of failing.
Also not only that, Twilight is an only filly. Shining Armor is her cousin instead who she used to see a lot when she was younger. She also has a hard time understanding about how family works.
Twilight has to overcome her fears of getting intimate with others and just accept that “friendship isn’t easy but it’s worth fighting for.”
Fun Facts: Twilight belongs to a non noble upper middle class family. Unlike Rarity she dislikes the extravagent yet shallow lifestyle of Canterlot nobility and has no desire to be ennobled

Fluttershy is the first in the reboot to become Twilight’s friend, being introverts they can relate to each other quite well. They both like quiet and can relate to not being the life of the party.
Most importantly they can relate to how they’re both afraid of things turning out bad. Like them messing things up for their friends or being betrayed.

RARITY
I want to focus on Rarity more of as an entrepenuer.
She along with Applejack are one of the more senior members of the Mane Six.
She might be the Element of Creativity this time, but I think I’ll generosity her secondary trait, since it creates some interesting ideas.
I want to go with a rags to riches story for Rarity. Like her having to spend years perfecting her accent to the point she speaks better than many Canterlotians themselves.
She started as a lower middle class pony to an unremarkable family. But through connections, finding teachers, digging up for gems, having many jobs like cashier or even farmhand (two jobs which she swore never to work in again). Through her own will and through the generosity of others who didn’t just see her a country bumpkin.
She believes in pursuing oppurtunity and helping others reach their full potential just like Rarity herself. So with Fluttershy, Rarity is determined to make her shine and achieve her dreams.
Twilight and Applejack thinks of her as shallow and impractical at first but they learn to respect her. In fact Twilight at first suspects Rarity is only helping Twilight because of Twilight’s connection with the Canterlot elite.
SPIKE
I like the idea of Sparity. Spike is often portrayed as going through teenage struggles. So I will make Spike 16 or maybe even a young adult of 18. It would make Sparity seem more belivable without having to rely on cocepts like timeskips.
Or Spike will still be a kid and be friends with the CMC or maybe as a teen be their reluctant babysitter.
Regardless of age, Spike will be shown to be more competent as an assistant. He’ll be the voice of reason for Twilight and be the more sociable of the two.

Trixie: You think you are better than the Great and Powerful Trixie!
Twilight: I have never thought of myself as that. I belive myself to be a servant of all ponykind. I might have some intelligence, but the one who boasts about that and uses it to prop themselves up, should not consider themselves to be a true intellectual. Intellectuals do things for the greater good not for themselves.
Trixie: That just proves my point. You are so above us “plebians” you don’t even acknowledge your abilities like normal ponies. And you’re hypocritical! At least I admit that I am better than everypony unlike you who pretends to be better you really are!
Twilight: Trixie Lulamoon, I don’t have time for your childishness. If you want to encourage others that self interest is good, that is on you. I’m leaving!

In this universe pegasi:
have more oriental features like maybe Turkic or maybe Slavic. Perhaps Byzantine. Maybe a combination along with some Ancient Greek influence.
Rainbow Dash wants to restore her noble family’s disgraced name and restore honor to them.
Whereas the other races are more 19th/20th century, pegasi have held onto their medieval roots longer and they are considered to be the most traditionalist.
If Pegasi were real they would be Eastern Orthodox.
The Pegasi are ruled by a Tsar who only has limited control over most pegasi lands which are basically city states. Although the real ruler is a General who leads a Military Dictatorship.

In the show Rarity grew up in an upper middle class.
But in my version Rarity grew up in a lower middle class family. And she always strived to work hard to rise her lowly origins.
She has a focus on an entrepenuiral spirit. And believes firmly in the Ponyville Dream of rags to riches.
My Rarity is still very snobbish and classy but she is a bit more down to earth and has a rough side to her. She isn’t as out of touch as in the show.
She’s more calm and clever like that Diamond Dogs episode in Season 1. She won’t overreact as much and is more of a trickster like Rouge from Sonic.

Sunny Statscout might actually be in my reboot!
Perhaps she is a legendary mare on the level of Starswirl the Bearded who helped to being Earth Ponies, Pegasi and Unicorns together on Hearths Warming Eve.
Sunny is a legendary sage who travelled all three lands to get them to unite under the banner of Friendship.
Unfortuenatly her dream was only partially achieved in that some races like dragons or diamond dogs were bot included.
Maybe she would be bitter about how she failed to unite the other pony races and Twilight would give Sunny back her inspiration again to keep on going.

Twilight in FIM: Is a major Daring Do fan.
Twilight in my reboot: I was a fan of it as a filly. And just as a filly. My tastes have matured.
I’m not going to read that YA schlock, Spike, when I can read a true classic like the Three Cutieteers.
Spike: But isn’t that YA fiction too.
Twilight: No it is not! Don’t you dare say that!

Twilight although she is intelligent is not very ambitious in her ideas. She likes to play it safe. And never goes beyond.
Starlight is one of the characters who makes Twilight dare more and question more.

Twilight is a bit more bossy and can be pushy torwards what she thinks is the right thing to do. Of course she’s just as hard on herself as with others.
Twilight has a slightly snobbish Canterlot behavior to her. But she doesn’t try to push it but it does come out.
My Twilight is less of a scientist, and more of a civil servant. She’s not as adorkable as she is much more formal and distant.

One of my favorite parts of Friendship is Magic similar to Naruto or Bleach, is perfecting the world around you. To build a utopia. I guess that’s why I loved G4’s ending, because it showed a better future where many creatures now see the light.
In my fanfic I want to emphasize this as a major theme: a world run by harmony.
I want to create a world that is flawed but becomes a better place at the end of my saga.
Twilight starts out as part of the system and just accepts how things are.
Fluttershy knows that there is wrong in the world but is too timid to change it.
Starlight wants to solve the world’s problems but has less than stellar ways of achieving them. But she is also ambitious.
Fluttershy and Starlight will have a friendship. Ywilight will develop to want to change the world and make Equestria not just a Hill but a City on the Hill. A lamp whose light will inspire all to moral greatness.

Applejack is now the older sister of Big Mac and Apple Bloom. Granny Smith might be dead.
But regardless of Granny Smith. AJ is still cheerful. But she also just Granny Smith is very traditional and somewhat xenophobic.
AJ also dislikes the Pear family and tells her younger siblings not to associate with “them snobbish Pears”. She saw Pears as prudes, no fun, silent, reserved and unloving, especially since Pears don’t usually show much outward affection.
When she will find out about the truth about her Pear heritage. AJ goes into an existencial crisis.
And after she accepts the Pear and Apple side she starts to be more accepting not just of Pears but of others different from her.
AJ and Rarity have a strange frenemy relationship. They both have a dep work ethic.
AJ sees Rarity as being a traitor to Ponyville, wanting to deny her humble roots.
Rarity sees AJ as utterly mediocre. Having no dreams or ambition. Rarity also is often jealous of AJ. She hates how AJ was handed to gain a role in Manehattan while Rarity was stuck in her school play. Rarity sees herself as someone who had nobody but herself to work hard whereas AJ has family to help her out.
TLDR: AJ: You went from a small town filly to being a big city diva! Rarity: You had everything handed to you on a silver platter by your family and you still rejected it! Whereas I had to work almost entirely by myself to get to where I was. Ironic how such a mediocre mare is the granddaughter of someone as ambitious as Granny Smith!

In my universe, Rarity is basically the treasurer of the group. She keeps track of the money and is in charge of the budget of the Mane Six and finding new ways to make money for the group.
