Also: SPOILERS FOR THE ORIGINAL "SHARED BONDS" PLOT IN MY NEXT GEN. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Eheh, well, I can say without a doubt, the dynamic I made between my Flashlight foal (Stella Nova) and Sunsentry foal (Flare Sparks) has grown THE most popular, getting the most amount of attention/requests out of my Next Gen. This is great, it is~
However.....hrm. How to put this.
After viewing Rainbow Rocks, many questions popped up in my head that..honestly disproves and dismantles the original plot that I had for Stella and Flare. Now, I HAVE come up with a new plot for them that can take in these changes, however...I'm quite nervous that I might upset some people
Well, going into spoiler territory for the original plot AND for Rainbow Rocks:
-Flare Sparks was born in the Equestria Girls universe, thus making the EG Flash her father. Many of you correctly guessed this, so this probably isn't a spoiler to most.
-EG Flash Sentry dies in an accident of some sort, leaving Sunset alone with their young child. If we're gonna throw real-world logic into this, then things probably got harder for her financially. Not to mention that she has no family there, and that by this time, the EG Mane 5 might've moved on to bigger things.
-To give herself and her daughter a better life, she makes her way through the portal on it's next opening. They come out as ponies (Flare gaining her father's pegasus wings) into the Crystal Empire. She sneaks them out, and makes way for Ponyville.
-They manage to live in secret until the day that her daughter finds her "father", as well as the Princess of Friendship and their daughter.
-From there, it'd be developing Stella and Flare's relationship.
Rainbow Rocks Tidbits:
-Sunset Shimmer has a book that acts as a messenger to Princess Celestia (though it gets into Twilight's hooves, so from this point on Sunset will be writing to Twilight (and vice-versa, possibly)).
-Twilight uses this book to make a permanent portal to the EG Universe
-If anything, Twilight might have made a copy of Celestia's book to converse with Sunset, while the original is used as the Portal Generator
-Twilight and Sunset build a good friendship
-How could Twilight have been shocked to see Sunset? If she went through the portal, she'd end up in Twilight's Castle.
-Why wouldn't Sunset tell Twilight of her troubles if they've become such good friends?
So....I'm gonna discard the original plot. Because this new plot I have fits better, and will also keep the main point that got so popular: Stella learning how to deal with Flare. I pray that this doesn't upset anyone! ;///;
Hey if ya stuck around for all that, I got a small proposition~!
Many of you know of tarbano's story "The Bridge". Well, there are many scenes where the main characters are in a setting that has many ponies in it. If I'm drawing said scene, then I usually would have to make up BG Ponies on the spot, which is a bit harder than it seems.
So, the proposition: Wanna have your OC cameo in a picture? Then come on down and throw us a comment~!
The Bridge: Crystal Pony OCs needed! EDIT: Both tarbano and I appreciate the offers you've all made so far, and we'll be sure to keep all of your entries in mind for future pics. But I must stress that we need CRYSTAL ponies right now.
Please and thank you! ;W;
As you may have noticed, The Bridge likes to add in other people's OCs in the background, be it pictures, or small cameos in the story itself. Well, while we have access to a group on Fimfiction for most of this, we're at a loss when it comes to Crystal Ponies.
So, want to see your Crystal Pony in the story (be it pics and/or a cameo)? Comment on this journal with all the info you can think of. A reference would be greatly appreciated, however if you can't get one, then a good description along with color-codes will be accepted.
-No overpowered OCs please
-Crystal Ponies or immigrants only please
-Crystal ponies just got out of a 1,000 year time jump. While technology hasn't changed that muc

Note: Right now, we're mainly looking for CRYSTAL Ponies. Mainly due to how rare they are in the fandom.
