    Well, that's a nice comeback

    After almost eight months of hiatus, In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night has made the feature box. Go me.

    Maybe there's something I'm missing, but it's nice to see

    Batsuit with small ears, Batman vs. Superman, possible female Robin; Sounds a lot like The Dark Knight Returns to me.

    For those of you looking for another review...

    There isn't one.

    I've been thinking over the past few weeks, and I realized that reviews, while a fun and different style of writing to work with, have become a major time sink, and I've neglected several projects that I've been meaning to get back to. This isn't a declaration that I'm stopping reviews all together, just that I'm putting them on hold so I can revive a few fics that I've neglected (In Brightest Day and Dark Knight Over Trottingham being major ones).

    I've got a four day weekend coming up, so I plan to spend as much time as possible getting those stories back on track. Hopefully I get enough inspiration to get current chapters done.

    For people who liked the LEGO Movie

    Batman's getting a spinoff.

    ... I honestly like this. Not only was LEGO Movie!Batman awesome, it makes a bit more sense than a direct sequel.

    ... My only hope is that if they bring in Joker, they get Mark Hamill

    Hit another snag writing Dark Knight

    So, I was getting back to writing Dark Knight Over Trottingham (finally), and I was planning to include a few scenes with Braeburn and this universe's version of Harvey Bullock (figure they'd throw a wrench in the Falcon's plan to kidnap Blueblood). And... Well, my brain shorted for a moment and I can't come up with a good name for Pony!Bullock.

    Any ideas?

When a mysterious ring finds it's way into the Crystal Empire, Shining Armor is introduced to a universe far beyond anything he could have imagined. As he works to master new skills and powers, he stumbles upon a threat that could spell doom for him, his home and family, and thousands of other beings across the galaxy... unless he can stop it.

Set in the same universe as Mare of Steel and The Princess of Themyscira; reading those first is recommended, but not required.

WELL HELLO THERE

Do want

#2 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I am going to love this as I am a huge GL fan and I also one of the few people who actually really liked the movie

So the manhunters will be the villains

#3 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

:rainbowhuh:

#4 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hre is an idea: since the guardians of ht eu niverae are some of the biggest jerks in comics how about they make the choice of being loyal to them or princess celestia who they may see as just seem weak willed fool

#5 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I predict this will be featured

#6 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

OH HELL YEAH IT'S ON NOW!!!!!!!

#7 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2786618 That may come up later. Interesting idea :twilightsmile:

#8 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I'm watching you.

>>2786631

Thanks and due to there being different human gl in the dcu at the same time

How about shining choosing his sister if he ever needs a subistute

#10 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Green Lantern is my favorite hero! Shining Armor is one of my favorite characters! I can't wait to see how will be the course of the plot! :derpytongue2:

#11 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Awesome cover art

#12 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Haven't even read the first chapter yet, and I'll already fav'ing this story. If "Mare of Steel" and "The Princess of Themyscira" are anything to go by, this should be a lot of fun. :pinkiehappy:

EDIT: Finished the first chapter, and I'm already loving it! The way you write Shining Armor and Cadance feels right and natural. Shining as GL is an inspired choice given how he often has to deal with being something of a second-fiddle in other fanfics. I'll be very interested to see how his character arc goes, as well as other "guest appearances" by other members of the Equestria JL.

>>2787974

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :pinkiehappy:

*cough* *cough*  I mean, cool. :coolphoto:

#13 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

This is promising to look very cool. Consider yourself faved.

#14 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2786642 That could be an option, although I did have ideas for making Twilight Equestria's equivalent to Doctor Fate (Just an idea and not fully set in stone, but it's an idea)

#15 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2786745i had the exact same idea about dr fate

#16 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Looks at pony chosen to be the Pony GL.

Looks at his Costume.

GOD DAMN IT. At least I've going with the Alan Scott GL and no the Hal Jordan GL.

Seriously though, the design of your costume is so similar to mine it's scary.

#17 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Awesome start, if you have problems with the lore let me know and I will try to help out. I am often told I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of comics

#18 · 69w, 1d ago · 2 · · Chapter 1 ·

Twilight studying mystical items... :trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright: Do those items, by any chance, happen to include an amulet, cloak, and full head-covering golden helm?

#19 · 69w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

OOOOOOO.... YEAAAAAAAAAH!

#20 · 69w, 1d ago · 1 · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2787974 Why yes they do :twilightsmile:

#21 · 69w, 16h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Okay, to start this off, I have not read "The Mare of Steel" or "The Princess of Themyscira."  I've heard of them, but I never actually felt any interest in reading them... With that said, the beginning of this story does interest me.  The idea of Shining Armor being a Green Lantern does sound a bit cool, and the way this beginning is set up does offer a nice new twist on the character, while still being true to the original incarnation.  Now, I'm not give a full opinion yet, mainly because this story has just begun, but this does make me interested, and if it's good maybe I'll take a look at the other stories.  So,  yeah, I do like how this story started out, and I think I'll keep track of it.

#22 · 69w, 14h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2789214

I suspected as much. :ajbemused: That character tends to be pretty iconic in DC, as far as magic goes.

And which pony (that isn't an immortal alicorn), more powerful than Twilight Sparkle?

#23 · 69w, 11h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

When comes next chapter

#24 · 69w, 9h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

This sounds great (and the hinted sequel with Twi) just please don't use "Cadence", "dead", and "refrigerator" in the same scene in future chapters

btw, any ideas for Bat Mane? (possible Lunar Guard?)

#25 · 69w, 9h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2792385 No Fridge Stuffing will happen ( I have plans for the star sapphires)

And I do have ideas for Bat themed vigilantes, but I probably won't get started with them until I'm finished with Princess of Themyscira

#26 · 69w, 8h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

OK, this is a decent start. For now I'll keep on guessing which GLs were used as the basis for this on.

So far, the origin seems based on Hal Jordan, but I do see some shades of John Stewart (due to sharing a military background) and Kyle Rayner (the costume is more elaborate than anything John or Hal have ever had. Guy Gardner has an "elaborate" costume, but only compared to John and Hal, though it is still a relatively simplier design than Kyles').

Using Green text for the ring is ok, the only thing I would change is the use of the quotation marks, since only green text is needed to show that the ring is speaking (note: this only applys to rings themselves, even the rings of others corps should be identified be their color like this. Beings like Parallax, Ion and the other emotional entities, while using there respective emotional colors should have quotation marks. It would make identifying whose speaking a bit easier incase you bring in the emotional entities).

#27 · 69w, 6h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Instafave It brings 2 of my favorite things ponies and Green Lantern

#28 · 69w, 6h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Rainbow Dash = Superman

Shining Armor = Green Lantern

OC Pony = Wonder Woman

My guesses on the rest of the league

Applejack = Batman

Pinkie Pie = Martian Manhunter

Fluttershy = Hawkgirl

Derpy = The Flash

Twilight Sparkle = Chopped Liver

#29 · 69w, 4h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>2786595 At least I know I'm not alone. Parallax is one of my favorite villains "Do you fear me? Good."

#30 · 69w, 4h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Shining.... word of advice. When you meet Sinestro... just buck him in the face. :ajbemused:

I mean, just look at his NAME for Celestia's sake, and consider that in Equestria, names are mirrors of who a pony is....

Also... Twilight Sparkle as Dr. Fate.

#31 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Shining, always remember. It's not, "No Fear", it's "Overcome Fear".

#32 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

IS THAT PRINCESS SKYLA I SEE ON THE HORIZON?!

Also, I look forward to Shining's reaction to Oa

#33 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Well, that was definitely a way to get the ring to Shining: hit him in the head with it! Sometimes, that's the only way to get a guy's attention, so whatever.

Also, I can't wait for Shining to travel in SPAAAAAAAAAAAACE! (Space... so much space...)

What? Don't look at me like that! You asked for that last part with your author's note.

#34 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>2798074 The Space Core is interned on Oa, mainly because he keeps getting himself into trouble and the Lanterns got sick of having to get him out of it

#35 · 68w, 6d ago · 1 · · Chapter 2 ·

>>2798082 Even if this is supposed to be a joke, I expect there to be some point in the story where Shining meets the Space core. And maybe Wheatley.

#36 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

i'm liking this story so far, it should be good. cant wait for more

#37 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Let's see, Shining armor made a letter, the ring zooms him to the crashed ship and... get the battery and travel to SPACE!!! I mean Oa.

:twilightsmile:

Yup, Shining will definitely be more surprised with Oa than Space, or the fact the ring spoke with him.

#38 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This needs more. MORE I SAY, MORE. :flutterrage: Please :fluttershysad:

That is all.

#39 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Hmmmm, just wondering, I assume a human is going to be a GL? Just for kicks maybe.

#40 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>2798229... maybe. Probably not, though

#41 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Oh my God, I was not expecting this. :derpyderp1:

SQUEEEEEEE!!!!

I'll read it later, just wanted to express my glee.

#42 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I did this when I found out Cadence was pregnant

:facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof:

Blasted Ring

It picks the WORST time to pick a new bearer.

#43 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Shing's thought's when the ring said "welcome to the Green Lantern Corps":  What... The... Bucking... HELL!

#44 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>2798091 But it has to be during some big major space battle. All is hectic, war is going on, ponies dieing left and right!.... Then some orb just floats on by, yelling out "SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!" the entire way....

#45 · 68w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>2798243 Probably shouldn't. You have Krypton being pony like, for 'superman', so basically Ponies are spose to be the humans. If you had an actual human as a GL, it would mean there are the other human superheroes too... and Superman and Rainbow Dash would be like, twins or something... :facehoof: Just better off no human

#46 · 68w, 6d ago · 1 · · Chapter 2 ·

So how long until a Star Sapphire ring comes for Cadence?

#47 · 68w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Please tell me he isn't going to Oa next chapter. At least not willingly.

I know you're adapting the DC universe to the MLP one, but there are a couple of big difference between Hal Jordan and Shining Armor that would make this story more interesting than a rehash of what DC did (which was something you mostly pulled off with Mare of Steel, to which I commend you).

Big difference between Hal and Shining, Shining is married to Cadance, while Hal was single and dating Carol. Shining really doesn't seem like the kind of guy to just up and leave his wife at the drop of a hat.

Please keep him on Equis for a big, you already have Sinestro on his way, please have him be the first GL SA meets.

#48 · 68w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>2799318 Who said he wanted to even leave the palace willingly?

#49 · 68w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

MOAR! :flutterrage: Please? :fluttershysad:

#50 · 68w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Woah... That was good.  The pacing was nice, it didn't feel too rushed, and when Shining Armor finally got the Power Ring, it did feel like a strong reveal.  So, so far I'm enjoying this, and I look forward to future chapters.
