Somewhere down the road

Everypony’s headcanon is just a hair different, and this is somepony’s idea of the Mane Six grown up a bit:

Fluttershy and Big Mac (that is my OTP for Ponyville, and I’m stickin’ to it) marry and have a couple of foals. Rarity moves to Manehattan and becomes kind of famous. Rainbow Dash gets into the Wonderbolts. Applejack kind of stays where she is, takes over much of the running of the farm, but with her new sister-in-law to help her, that makes it easier. Pinkie Pie marries Cheese Sandwich and they start up a traveling party business. Twilight perhaps ascends to taking on an even more serious role as a princess, maybe even is being groomed to replace Celestia and Luna, who are thinking about retiring. (We never know for sure just how immortal those two are. Apparently they are over 1000 years old, but then again, Granny Smith seems to be over 100, so maybe ponies live longer than humans or count time differently). And the three Cutie Mark Crusaders kind of grow up: Sweetie Belle becomes an entertainer, Apple Bloom takes over the marketing of her family’s farm products, Scootaloo is sort of an all-purpose mechanic. And maybe Diamond Tiara, in her reformed form, becomes the Mayor some day, and actually does a really good job of it, especially with Silver Spoon as her adviser.

The neatest idea here is that of Diamond Tiara as mayor; I’m betting she has extensive experience in the useful technique of Getting Townsfolk to Do Something, the task of seemingly every mayor everywhere.

Oh, and in my own Dead Pony Flying, Scootaloo lives up to that “mechanic” business.
