I need some suggestions for a fanfic that I'm going to start writing. My fic is essentially about my OC, Pinoak Stringhoof (OC link in my signature), and having him travel across Equestria telling ponified versions of our folk lore. I already have one story ponified and I'm considering ponifying Chaucer's "A Pardoner's Tale", and maybe even "Lanval". I'm really looking for stories from all across the world, from the Brothers Grimm, to Native American, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, American, etc. It could even be urban legends and what not. I'm just looking for some ideas. Other notes that I have planned for this fic: I plan on having Pinoak perform in Ponyville with the CMC, Mane 6, etc. watching, and I'm thinking on having him do a performance with Trixie for helping with special effects. So, what do you guys think?
Okay, so it's not as if I don't have any ideas for a fan fiction. Actually I do. But the problem is that I don't know how to get my idea from point A to point B. Long story short, I have a story idea involving two humans appearing in Equestria. Their names are Clarissa and Emile. They are cousins, and both are sort of insecure. Clarissa is insecure in an 8-year-old-teased-for-her-glasses way, and Emile is insecure in a teenager-concerned-about-fitting-in way. I have their characters very well fleshed out, so that's not the problem here. I have no idea how and why they could show up in Equestria. And also, I want a villain that has some nerfarious purpose for them, but I'm having trouble thinking of why a villain might specifically need humans. And if any of you mention the words "Chosen One" I will personally fly through the internet and flick you on the nose. I want very much to avoid cliches. And also, no Grimdark. It can be slightly darker than something that would happen on the show, but only slightly. I want it to have an overall cheerful tone. ....So....any ideas? ._.
