Themes ▼

This week's theme: Pick an episode and write a song about how the events might have played out in a parallel universe.

Whether the change leads to a completely different ending for the episode, or if just a single tangential subplot is added (or ruined).

For example, what if Twilight had applied the wing spell to Applejack instead of Rarity in "Sonic Rainboom"?


You have ONE WEEK to create ONE (original, remix, or whatever) song in response to the theme. Songs cannot be longer than 8 minutes. (Anything longer will be skipped and/or deleted.)

Aeternam Luna Doofcake 7/20/2012 2:57:28pm No.10 - Score: 6

OLDSCHOOL ACID HOUSE COMING OUT OF EQUESTRIAN HYPE RECORDS FOR THE EXPRESS PROMO OF entering into r/mlptunes' 2000 sub contest and posting it everywhere and also here because honestly I haven't been submitting to toast beards and I've been sad about that and I won't let a theme stop me from superimposing the theme on a song not created for the theme because I want to submit it to toast beard and BECAUSE I WANNA BE PRESIDENT! [](/comeon)

...right so here is my totally-thought-out-and-not-slapped-on-afterthought-bullshit parallel universe idea that totally has to do with the track: This is my interpretation of The Return to Harmony Part I & II where everything that happens is really just part of the acid trip the three fillies were on after dropping acid behind the Discord statue. It was an AWESOME TRIP. There. Totally legit for this toastbeard. You know it.


Thanks to Seventh Element for suggesting the VENOM VB-303 vst! It's awesome!

Manehattan Mornings Eccentrifuge 7/21/2012 6:49:02am No.21 - Score: 5
Woo, rubbing right up against the deadline here.
The concept here is simple and melancholy.

What if Applejack, while in Manehattan as a filly, was looking /away/ from her bedroom window, and never saw the Sonic Rainboom that would have called her back home?

Found It! Cherax 7/18/2012 11:01:34am No.3 - Score: 4
Well, that wasn't too hard after all.

Silent Ponyville Seventh Element 7/20/2012 3:38:12pm No.11 - Score: 4
I am implicating after "Party of One," the events of Silent Ponyville begin. Weak implication I know, but it gets the job done. As a lover of Silent Hill's music I decided to sort of go for the general style of the themes and emotion pieces. Let me know what you think!

Unearthing the Legend Kyoga 7/21/2012 6:38:32am No.20 - Score: 4
This is about what would have happened if Discord had one, (my interpretation of it)

This is the story:

I can't submit my MP3 because it exceeds the max filesize. ;_;

There is a link to the MP3 on my soundcloud, and on Sunday it will be available on my youtube.
The song on soundcloud is played in WAV, so don't download that. XD instead look in the description for the DL link.

Somewhere I Belong TalkAcanthi 7/20/2012 12:36:04am No.9 - Score: 3
Based on the fan fiction "Somewhere Only We Know."

Breaking physics Kingsleyrulz 7/21/2012 1:34:36am No.16 - Score: 3
Imagine, the last hope against discord has been harnessed form the elements of harmony, but the only one can deliver it to stop him is Rainbow Dash. So Discord RD Ariel fight.
the pun is that sonic rainbooms are physically impossible.

not very good mixing but I tried.

Goodbye Ponyville AdamTh3Procrastinator :( 7/21/2012 5:58:27pm No.31 - Score: 3
Well, my collab fell through, but we're still working on it, because it is an atonally orchestrated song about Pinkie dealing with depression, and that's not something you just walk away from.

In the meantime, I did this in an hour. AdamTh3Walker's Not-So-Great Handmade Jazz Trio Presents: What if Pinkie just couldn't hold it long enough?

AppleJacks Day off Resonantwaves 7/19/2012 11:04:08pm No.8 - Score: 2
Made this Song for this weeks Toastbeard :)


The Twilight Parable Singularity 7/20/2012 7:04:49pm No.13 - Score: 2
Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V:
I made a track around the idea of the changlings coming back, and festering off the love of everyone. Since there was no love for one another, hatred and death spread. I almost made a fanfic on it when writing the narration! Since the track could not be longer than 8 minutes, it really put a limit to how much information, musical or otherwise, I could put in. Still, it was great fun; sound design was grand, and my voice was ok to work with! 3 days soild work put into this, the shortist time I've taken to make a track to date. It is hard to make a music piece that tells a story within 8 minutes! Also I have a stammer, so hesetation or mistakes in the narration are my falt.

Based off "The Stanly Parable" and "Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds" and a bit of Fallout. Also Jean-Michel Jarre sounds are best sounds.

Dinnar twoscide 7/20/2012 10:51:35pm No.14 - Score: 2
What if the Changeling's had succeeded with their plans?

What would Equestria look like today?

Nightmare Zone Versal 7/21/2012 2:48:09am No.18 - Score: 2
what if nightmare moon won...

Radiarc - Day and Nightmare Radiarc 7/21/2012 4:04:13am No.19 - Score: 2
A battle theme for Princess Celestia vs Nightmare Moon because it never really happened in S1 E2, and, should've.

A celestial mane and a dark aura flow in the gentle breeze of the ancient ruins, each of heads with eyes whose lethal stare could pierce through diamond.
There is a deep silence in which memories of a harmonious time flash before the two beings...
One now stands shining as a radiant star, the adversary of the darkest of nightmares, the most wicked of creatures.
They are as Day and Night.

Massaya El-Shabazz Sparkle JihadDash 7/21/2012 3:37:08pm No.24 - Score: 2
During the events of "Feeling Pinkie Keen", Twilight realizes her skepticism is incorrect: There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.

She promptly renounces her old kafir ways: renaming herself Massaya El-Shabazz, eating only Halal hay, burning all the blasphemous books in her library, and wearing the hijab as part of her new modest dress code. Later, she becomes disillusioned with Celestia's war in Zebrastan and joins The Equestrian Mujahideen.
