Well, I'd spent enough time loitering around /rp/ for one day. I had a war to fight, but that wouldn't happen until Tuesday. I decided to finish some of the cases I'd been left. I wandered into the office, considering whether I should continue to use images of my human form, or instead use the ponysona I'd whipped up for /rp/. But then I saw three case files sitting on my desk, and I knew it'd have to wait.
The first case was a crossover. And not just any crossover, a crossover with two of my favorite people of all time (and Angry Joe. He's cool, too.) Needless to say, I wanted to see this case succeed. I reminded the client to leave a link next time, like the other two cases, and then I got straight to work.
So with how the humans got there established, and some shenanigans already gotten into, I had to figure out where they would go next. And then the answer came to me. Interludes. "Take Linkara, for example," I told the client. "You know that song they played in his 200th episode? As both allies and enemies come and go, a changed status quo never disrupts the show." They're reviewers. And Linkara in particular is used to this kind of thing. So why didn't he actually review Mare Do Well #85? I feel like the kid had gypped his audience.
Plot-wise, it seemed obvious. Have Celestia talk to them, tell then where the portal is, and have them quest to get back home. Traditional, maybe, but the strength of the characters will carry your story. Maybe if you're feeling adventurous, have some enemies of the reviewers slip through the portal, like Dr. Insano or Corporate Commander. Or maybe just some alternate personas of the reviewers, like Ask That Guy. Actually, having Ask That Guy in Equestria practically writes itself. I told the kid at the end of the day, that was probably the best advice I could give him. Put Ask That Guy in Equestria. Hilarity shall ensue.
