The Dark World Series has been a long hard road. A story of redemption, atonement, and revenge...But what about what we didn't see?

What was Twilight the Unicorn doing before she met up with Applejack?

What were the Apple Pies up to while the heroes were off fighting Discord? Who are the Apple Pie Clan?

These are the untold stories of the Dark World.

Warning, spoilers!

Loose Canon.

Pony POV Series belongs to Alexwarlorn!

My Little Pony belongs to Hasbro!

I made the picture myself!

P.S. Yes, I know these technically aren't drabbles, but it made for a catchy title.

. Tah be honest, Ah kinda like it once Ah got a close look at it!

Feels disclaimerish.

ones tah take Morning-Radio Boss Discord out?!

Ah don’t think Banana Pie ever got over ma accidentally hurtin’ her

If it can be CALLED an accident.

. If the family needs any heavy liftin’ done, Ah’m the one they turn tah.

Remember she's a filly.


No wonder Spike is head over heels for her!

For Spike that isn't the reason anymore of course.

Discord’s right hand?

Makes me think Mad Tiara and Screwball counted as his left hand and middle hand.

Did you show this to Louis?

Considerin’ she let Rainbow Dash go help Apple

He wouldn't know that name, or be USED to calling her by that name.

Of course the thing with Angry Pie . . . look at how many of her adopted children were from her own family.

Ah just knew how it’s computers worked.

Ah just knew how it s computers worked.

". Tah be honest, Ah kinda like it once Ah got a close look at it!

Changed it a bit so she's neutral on it.

"ones tah take Morning-Radio Boss Discord out?!"

Nice, changed it.

"Ah don’t think Banana Pie ever got over ma accidentally hurtin’ her

If it can be CALLED an accident."

True, but think a daughter would WANT to believe her mother hurt her sister and it wasn't an accident?

". If the family needs any heavy liftin’ done, Ah’m the one they turn tah.

Remember she's a filly."

Might either be how she sees HERSELF or kids in the Bad Future don't have it easy.

"No wonder Spike is head over heels for her!

For Spike that isn't the reason anymore of course."

Yeah. Of course a filly isn't going to understand love.

"Discord’s right hand?

Makes me think Mad Tiara and Screwball counted as his left hand and middle hand."

I wouldn't be surprised if he actually called them that.

"Did you show this to Louis?"

He hadn't been on for awhile, so I didn't want to add more to his workload.

"Considerin’ she let Rainbow Dash go help Apple

He wouldn't know that name, or be USED to calling her by that name."

Fixed it a bit, hope it works.

"Of course the thing with Angry Pie . . . look at how many of her adopted children were from her own family."

Couldn't think of a way to work it in.

"Ah just knew how it’s computers worked.

Ah just knew how it s computers worked."

Thanks!

I hope I did a good job making each of the Apple Pies unique.

“Guillotine? Really?”

Anarchy gave a shrug. “Why not?”

“Well I know it’s one of your favorite creations and all, but really? Isn’t it kind of outdated? I know I’m in no position to make demands, but could you at least upgrade a little? You’ve used the same design for several million years.”

Watch it there, Dissey, they could have decided to force you to watch every SyFy Saturday movie ever made instead!

I like the opening with Pinkie and her foals in Pony Paradise. And the battle with the Elements of Chaos and Harmony against old Grogar really works great.

I do hope we see more about them.

I REALLY LIKE the banter between Apple Pie and Poison Apple, with HER playing the role of interviewer.

Ah like it as well as the next Apple Pie,

That might lead to some confusion that she means the families, not the pony.

They were fun, but they seemed too short tah hold mah attention.

The convoluted ways they kept inventing to extend he story likely didn't help.

Big Banana Discord

Discord title is never the same twice.

Nice note that Poison Apple WOULDN'T know a lot of words.

Big Banana Discord had all the Pre-Chaos Era literature he could find destroyed (yeah, Ah know now he was doin‘ it tah try and avoid bein‘ beaten like he had before. Ah died yah know). And Ah wanted tah keep understandin’ things.

Actually, Discord WANTED ponies to remember the past so his chaos would continue to have context.

It’s Heaven, it’s kinda hard tah describe if yah hadn’t been there!

The most logical thing you can say. After all, how you ACTUAL describe perfection?

I wonder. . . . Just thinking about the Optimal-verse. And AI Celestia, 'fulfilling maximum values through friendship and ponies.' IMHO, heaven is meant to more than that. Heaven is not meant to be just what we want. Or rather, shouldn't be.

Zecora's dialogue is as always spot on.

And yeah, now Ah know it equals three and not fish.

Emperor Joker reference.

Hey name was Ms Hackney,

Her name was Ms Hackney,

Of course, Ms hackney and Zecora have a 'unique' relationship.

I LOVE THIS!!!!

AND I LOVED THE 'FULL CANDLE ALREADY BURNED' metaphor from Zecora! That's straight out of godfather death!

I love the hints of her DOING SOMETHING after being kidnapped rather than sitting on her flank waiting to be rescued. Discord's world, like it or not, HAS produced some hardy ponies.

Ah asked, findin’ Granny Smith diggin’ in the backyard.

Hard to call her that now that she's the age of a filly.

I LOVE THE BOOK ENDS WITH Granny's time capsule! Doing that while dancing non-stop with a broken hip  . . .

And I like the joke at the end. Thank you for writing this.

I love this just for Rarity/Libra getting to meet dear little Sweetie Belle again. Yay! And Pinkie, Flutts, and Sweetie as the Three Ghosts of Christmas Hearth's Warming? That is going to be one weird Christmas Carol. :flutterrage::pinkiecrazy::unsuresweetie:

And I hate to be a Grinch, but I noticed this: Rainbow Dash gave a chuckle, flying next to Scootaloo and rubbing her mane mane. Was 'mane' really supposed to be repeated there?

And Discord got his back presents? I suppose he's finally learned his lesson, but after everything he did!...

Great to see everypony together for one last holiday in some cases. And I like how Libra 'put herself together'. Hopefully she doesn't often make mistakes when doing so, though it can make for a memorable Nightmare Night appearance if she just showed up as a crystal skeleton! And I enjoy the little part about Luna and the 'windy gos', which I imagine are basically gentle if chilly wind spirits.

Very lovely gift for Hearth's Warming; and thanks for sharing it.

Discord really likes his nonsensical titles? No surprise, this is the guy whose first and mot memetic line was "Make sense, oh what fun is there in making sense?" yeah, this is retry much how dragons treat their loved ones for me too, to them, say, to Mrs Pie, the clan is technically part of her horde, so add that to the protective instinct of a mother and wellI think that making her mad would not be a good idea.

Very well done! I especially like the interaction between Diamond and Scootalloo. The scenes in Pony Heaven were pretty good too. I wonder if Scoot and her friends met Megan, Danny, and Molly there?

:pinkiegasp: you fiend!

I love the interaction between the draconequi, it's so much fun to read, especially the fact that they're Affably Evil, they may be Nature's Furym but they can be quite nice. Expect Entropy, but She's well, Entropy.

#11 · 88w, 3d ago · 1 · · A New Dawn ·

yes! A combination of the Rainbow Of Harmony and of Chais used on one poor fool! And who better, but Grogar, finally defeated at last.

Forgive me for this but, NOPONY EXPECTS THE EQUESTRIAN INQUISITION! :rainbowlaugh:

Heartwarming and hilarious. Loved it. Fluttershy really is the Element of Kindness, :pinkiesmile: she really is Mercy and Kindess incarnate. Glad to see some old gags brougnt back, such as the fainting couch and Cutie Mark Crusaders one, they may have their cutie marks, but deep down, they're still the same fillies that hid under the same table during Nightmare Moon's return and who bonded at Diamond Tiara's cuteceañera.

I like it, the chapter was definitely very apt, a lot of hatchet burying.

>>4478268

Good question. Anything is impossible. But infinitely is a big place.

(Interviewer’s Notes (Applejack): Stubborn and prideful?)

Pot, kettle, black.

“Momma’s the Concept of Letter Carriers, and remember their creed? ‘Neither snow nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers.’”

“…You sound like Twilight.”

“Thank you!”

That is adorable.

I considered asking Bahamut…but once again, he’s a dragon. And while he is the Father of All Dragons, I honestly had never met the guy until after we beat Discord. He and Tiamat are my Patron Deities, but I don’t know them that that well. It felt awkward to think about asking him for advice on being a dad.

I can imagine.

It...depends how we're feeling at the time...Being married to an Alicorn has...certain advantages. Hehe…

I'm sure, yes.

Thanks. Now want to go see how Rainbow reacts?

There was a brave stallion and captain who wished he'd never gotten into a fight with a gang of Diamond Dogs that got him stabbed in the chest as a arrogant colt, leaving him with a clockwork heart... but without that moment of almost dying... he simply drifted through his career, waiting for greatness to come to him, instead of becoming determined to make his mark after seeing every day could be his last.

Very clever. That reference. I get it. Star Trek, the Next Generation. Picard got into a fight with a bunch of Nausiccans after rigging a game of Dom Jot, it's the episode where Q claimed to be God. Either way, he gave him the option not to do it, now if it was one big illusion or if he really DID place Picard back in time, that's the question but, Picard became the man became BECAUSE of that incident.

Another pony wished for a world without despair...and I won't lie, I wanted to grant it so badly. Same with one without hate, or evil...but to grant those wishes...would be to remove free will, to take away what makes ponies ponies. Ponies...they needed to choose to make a world where despair doesn't exist, not just magically remove their ability to feel it.

The whole point of the Ying Yang concept, without evil to balance out good, people/ponies would lose sight of what GOOD is due to not being able to comprehend the idea of evil.

Hehe. She's Pinkie Pie, you expect anything else.

Not in the slightest.

"MY LITTLE PONY, I GIVE YOU YOUR NAME: PRINCESS JINIRI MIRACULUM PONYLAND. THAT IS WHO YOU ARE, YOU WERE, AND WHO YOU SHALL BE."

Half expected Jirachi since granting wishes IS his shtick.

I did open the boarders to pony refugees, it was the merciful and kind thing to do...even if it could only buy them so much time of reprieve.

Borders.

When the rainbow light faded, we were on Luna's moon, the Elements forming a large dome around us, airtight and safe. We were on it's dark side, the side those on Equus would never see.

Mysterious as, the dark side, the mooooon!

The Spirit of Chaos snarled in absolute fury. “You...you...you...you THIEF!” he roared, forming spheres of red energy in his claws and throwing them with all the finesse of a child taking a bat to his room in a temper tantrum, not caring what he hit and forcing his own family to dodge, wrecking the castle. “Those were my toys, my playthings! MINE!” he screamed like a child throwing a tantrum, blowing perfect holes of destruction in anything that even vaguely resembled the Mother of All Deer. “I had so many 'In Hooviet Roedina' literal puns I'll never get to do now because of you!”

Forgot how petty he was.

“...It's still kinda weird to see a Diamond Dog give something away,” Gilda stated with a confused expression I couldn't help giving a small chuckle at. “Uh...no offense, just, ya know...thousand years ago and all...” she stated after a glare from Rainbow Dash.

It's fine, for you, the Diamond Dogs you knew had Greed as a part of their culture, much like Dragons or griffins. No offense.

“Uh, may I interject darlings?” asked Abigail.

Ugh.

“...It doesn't?”

No, he's as much the prison itself as he is the warden. Besides, anyone who's landed in Tartarus deserves what's coming to them, and it's his JOB to make sure they get their just desserts.

“She was little Odyne's mom, so no Fluttershy would mean no reformed Dissy!...” Pandora blinked, looking down at us. “...When did I get on the ceiling?”

You're the reality warper, you tell me.

Discord laughed in the spirit realm nearby. “Ponies are being saved from harm, nonsense is being weaponized, and the only one being hurt is the evil monster who terrorized children to try to engulf the world in darkness in a hilariously karmic fashion. Oh I should've been doing this all along!”

And I am thoroughly confused.

An attendant ran out of the other car and collapsed on the ground. A changeling web shot out and pulled the poor dear back into the other car screaming. “CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS CHIROPRACTORS! YAY!”

A piece of advice. RUN.

Their original abilities were based on Changeling bio-achemy infusing them with the abilities of various insects. In a bit of irony, Discord's chaotic alterations to the world enabled for a great many things we weren't capable of before, some of our alchemists were, and still are, quite adaptable. They were sadly killed by Discord's secondary set of minions, but resurrected by Queen Libra, getting their new powers from the season spirits, who also returned an ancient artifact to us that once belonged to Queen Rosedust called the Sun Stone.

I'd question it, but, Power Rangers logic.

That was truly impressive, honestly. The Apple Pie clan were renown rock farmers with a massive amount of knowledge to draw from. If they were unaware of a type of rock, it was truly a rarity.

Like with Apples a millenium ago.

It's eyes slowly landed on a familiar Alicorn shape. A rage its primitive, still forming, chaotic mind didn't fully understand nor care why it couldn't.

Explains why he spent most of his time in the episodes as a smoke cloud, he'd yet to record full power and full conciousness to say much beyond "Crystal"

Libra looked sheepish. “...Okay, admittedly this was my inspiration, but I mean look at it!” she stated, pointing over the crystal city. “It's fabulous! How could I not take a little inspiration from this place?! There's just so much here!”

That's fine.

“Wow...congrats on having an awesome title,” Spike told me with a smile. Apparently lofty titles were considered a major sign of honor in Dragon culture. Spike's title was “King Spike, the Queller of Chaos and Husband of All.”

Well, that's certainly something to be proud of.

Because if I told them I wasn't the original Queen Cadence, then it might not go over well. But if I claimed to be her, I lacked memories I logically should have if I was her.

Ah.

I gave a sigh. “Um...I'm sorry, but...I'm not that Queen Cadence. I'm her descendant Queen Cadence the XV. But she told us much.”

15th huh?

To my surprise...they weren't saddened as I expected to them to be. For a moment they seemed it but then...it vanished. Like it was there and then just washed away....it sent a shudder down my spine. And given some of Discord's games, that should say a lot.

Repressing emotions is rarely a good thing. Few cases are those that work, you are not the Vulcans who's fear of their powerful emotions made them repress them in favor of logic so as not to descend back into barbarism.

I sincerely wish the knowledge that two types of Crystal Ponies had been wiped out horrified me more than it did. Oh, I was disturbed, but...all the death I'd seen in my life had left me far more less...frightened by the concept of death.

(Interviewer's Notes (Ditzy): That's horrible...)

During Discord's reign, it was a necessary evil...I'd be lying to say I don't prefer a world where my subjects' deaths aren't a constant possibility to one where it was.

That's perfectly fine.

For just a moment the gathered group looked like they WERE afraid of him before it vanished and they went back to being the curious ponies they'd been before...

“...That's...interesting...”

Very. I hope Spike gets to punch Sombra in the face, because come on, how many times do you get to punch a monster like Sombra in the face and make it WORK?

“Fear...of...unknown...”

Xenophobia if left unchecked and unjustified.

“She has a valid point though,” I pointed out, seeing the logic in it. “King Sombra hid it so thoroughly Cadence and an army of guards, both Equestrian and Changeling, couldn't find it. It seems kind of odd he wouldn't be prepare some sort of failsafe for if we just plugged it directly into the Empire's core. We may want to investigate the mechanism for dark magic curses.”

And ways to dispel or counter said dark magic, just in case.

Abigail rubbed her chin. “Let me handle it, darling. I know how to work a crowd.”

Since when? I also forgot how annoying and just plan WIERD the whole Abigail thing was.

“Go get 'em my Champion,” said Pandora, suddenly with a 'Applejack is #1' foam finger.

“Champion?”

“You're a fully awakened Element of Fantasy, I'm the Concept of Fantasy.”

... Point taken.

The Crystal Ponies were naturally convinced. Abigail's delivery had been so flawless I nearly fell for it and I'm a Changeling. Then again, she is a completely and fully awakened Element of Fantasy. Why would one expect anything else?

Point taken.

“Why? You have the entire memory of the planet in your head!” Rainbow Dash complained.

Yes, but she has to look THROUGH said memory. And the Empire's not been around for about a millenium.

“I have every work of fiction, no matter what the format, genre, and so on and so forth to ever exist in my head. At once. And every time a new one comes into existence, poof! It's in my head! Okay, I kinda am them, but it being in my head is easier to explain!”

I see...

“Including slash fan fiction!”

Oh dear.

“It's not that bad when you're Concept of Imagination. You should see all the clop art...some of which includes you...especially during that time Fluttershy was a model...”

Judging by her expression, I believe Rainbow Dash wishes she could forget the mental image that brought to her mind...so do I...though mine mostly because I remembered Fluttercruel the butcher more than her 'mother...'

And ya broke her.

“Now, outside of reality, we've got plenty of time to sift through our memories, recall them, and find what we're looking for, because time is kinda upside down and sideways. But mortal reality isn't built for that, so we kinda have to sift through stuff 'slower'. So looking stuff up isn't that easy here. Yah know, trying to fit infinity into a finite space and all that.”

Gotcha.

“Alright, well let's get off our flanks and do something,” Rainbow Dash said. “Inquisition!”

“Yeah Rainbow?!” called our little Hippogriff gleefully, rushing to her mentor.

“Do your thing.”

I'm almost disappointed that she's not Spanish.

“I think I'm gonna go check if Sombra left any 'in case I'm dead' brainwashing spells on these guys,” said Rainbow Dash, looking over everything suspiciously. I do not blame her. “After everything we've gone through, I wouldn't put it past an evil overlord to do something like that.”

Oh yeah.

“...You want to check out the adventure section, right?”

“Uh...N-No, why would I do that, Dash?”

“Because I know ya. You like Daring Do almost as much as yours truly...and I kinda want to do it too.”

Gilda sighed, but I'd caught her. “...Yeah...I just...you know, don't want everycreature knowin' I'm into that stuff...”

Relax, liking books doesn't mean you can't be awesome, heck, it's a trope, Badass Bookworm, remember Twilight? She fits the bill.

“Um...have fun and try not to destroy anything...be Cutie Mark Crusaders Crystal Empire explorers, alright darlings?” Libra asked.

“CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS CRYSTAL EMPIRE EXPLORERS! YAY!”

RariLibra, as someone who had to deal with the original Crusaders, you of all creatures should know how bad an idea that is.

(Interviewer's Notes (Ditzy): Why wouldn't there see?)

Point taken.

I finally found a section labeled 'Book From Before The Uplifting', whatever that means and it had some good stuff. Though it was weird, for some reason most of 'em had humans in them...

How stinkin' old is that myth anyway?

Very.

Eh, Inquisition's ma didn't like her fillychick hearing my pottybeak, so I'm trying to bucking stop.

You need to work on it.

I can sense lies, illusions, and any form of deceit. I've gotten even better at it since I had my little awakening during the second war with that brute Grogar. I do declare I can't be fooled anymore.

Autumn Gem gave a scream as a dragon roared in her face. Her heart raced on panic...but when she blinked, the shadowy dragon before her was gone...and with it her fear of it. She shrugged and went on her way.

Yeeesh...

Our guest nodded, looking over things with a strange rectangular black device that made phone noises. “I'm going to email some quantum echos to Ponythulhu since this is his family's brand of magic. He'll still know more than us,” she then seemed to take a picture of the rest of us. “And update my status. 'In the Empire with Libs and our friends...' Hehe! Rancor is so jealous! She wants to know if you'll be singing, Libra.”

HEH!

“And our cousin posted an 'evil laughter' emoticon...”

“...That's unnerving...”

“Yeah, I didn't even know there was an evil laughter emoticon.”

There is now.

“It appears some birds mistook Lady Gilda for one of the griffin statues in front of the library,” Aquamarine added helpfully, still seeming naïve to the concept of accidentally embarrassing somecreature.

*snerk*

“Um...howdy...Ah...”  she muttered in an accent that certainly didn't come from several thousand years prior. “My golly...Ah never expected to see the day...”

We all knew what that had to mean. The only non-Crystal Pony that could be in the Empire...was someone who'd arrived during the second reign of Chaos...

This had just become quite complicated...

No kidding.

This chapter meant a lot to me too when Ken wrote it. In particular Scootaloo telling Diamond Tiara how selfish she'd was being throwing her lot in with Discord to be with her mother.

I'd question it, but, Power Rangers logic.

So they just need to shout boldly, and pose dramatically, and giant robots will come to save them?

15th huh?

Let that sink in for a while. There were 13 others between Cadence and her!

Repressing emotions is rarely a good thing. Few cases are those that work, you are not the Vulcans who's fear of their powerful emotions made them repress them in favor of logic so as not to descend back into barbarism.

And they're all being dumped into creating something nasty.

That's perfectly fine.

Discord, "In my defense... Nightmare Eclipse took every incident of collateral damage from my games, from every timeline we wen through, and edited events those always happened afterwards... Seriously, you think I'd WANT to PURPOSELY wiped out my own toys?"

Very. I hope Spike gets to punch Sombra in the face, because come on, how many times do you get to punch a monster like Sombra in the face and make it WORK?

Obsidian Zephyr, "The crystal ponies are the ones who wanted to hide from their own feelings. They should blame themselves."

"CRYSTALSSSSSSSSSS!"

"Fear! Darkness! Blood! Come unto me!"

>>6740914

So they just need to shout boldly, and pose dramatically, and giant robots will come to save them?

Pretty much.

Let that sink in for a while. There were 13 others between Cadence and her!

Yes, I get that.

And they're all being dumped into creating something nasty.

Precisely.

Discord, "In my defense... Nightmare Eclipse took every incident of collateral damage from my games, from every timeline we wen through, and edited events those always happened afterwards... Seriously, you think I'd WANT to PURPOSELY wiped out my own toys?"

No. So that's ONE point in your favor.

Radiant Hope, "No! Sombey isn't an evil overlord... he's... just misunderstood! That's all!"

Radiant Hope, "VERY misunderstood!"

"Fear! Darkness! Blood! Come unto me!"

Radiant Hope, "VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY misunderstood! And he had a bad foalhood!"

Even you don't believe this at this point.

Crystal Pony,, "We're living crystals, do we even have blood?"

Not sure.

"Element of Deceit for a 1000 years darlin', ya pick up a few things."

Ya don't say?

Morning Star, "I WAS JUST TRYING TO CLEAN UP THEIR MESS OF A SHODDY UNIVERSE THEY PUT TOGETHER!"

Lovely.

Sometimes history does repeat.

No kidding.

Gilda, "Hey! Mine was an ancient and proud warrior culture! We ate ponies for breakfast! Uh not literally... anymore. Ugh! The flashbacks! "

Relax, relax, I understand.

What Mulan got to do with this?

A, the dark side of the moon, B, why NOT Mulan, and C, I refuse to make a reference to Bay's movie.

And personally I think Kendell2 here overused the term 'child' and 'tantrum' here.

Eh.

Maybe, but pokemon names don't really fit with the naming themes used for the concepts.

Point taken.

Adam and Eve got along fine without knowing what good or evil were.

Yeah, not pulling the pin on that grenade.

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO GOT THE STAR TREK REFERENCE!!!

You're talking to someone who watched The Next Generation AND Deep Space 9. ALL of it. Back to back. WOrth it.

That so?

Yes. Yes it is.

This chapter meant a lot to me too when Ken wrote it. In particular Scootaloo telling Diamond Tiara how selfish she'd was being throwing her lot in with Discord to be with her mother.

Hm.

“Yeah...it's me dear...” I reassured with a comforting look. I felt so strong...I felt like I could craft an entire city from illusions alone...I felt so...free. “But I guess you can call me Ender Jack right now...hmm...might have to work on that name a bit...”

You REALLY need to work on that name, yes. How about, Fantasia? Just Fantasia.

=I suppose a lot of you readers may be a little confused on what everypony meant by 'my awakening' during the second war with that brute Grogar while we were in the Empire. Well wait no longer, darlings.=

Who are you?

Ah, Applejack, they're right, I do need to put introductions of whose talking at the start.

Gaiden: Another Life Time

What does Gaiden even mean?

So...I told Fauna Luster I wanted to live my mortal life now that Eclipse was no more...She's Fauna Luster, She didn't need to be told how I felt, She KNEW the moment I felt that way...

To be fair, Mothers are good at that, and she's literally the Mother of All, and Empathy incarnate, if she couldn't, then she wouldn't be good at doing her job, which in paradoxical seeing as she IS her job, so if she wasn't good at her job, she wouldn't be good at being her, and this is giving me a headache.

Hehe. Yes indeed. Trixie was worshiping herself, was there ever any doubt she'd jump at the chance to literally do it? It also means we both get to talk about ourselves often.

Oh my god this is the greatest thing that has ever happened. This is amazing!

Pandora, Draconequus of Imagination, walked up to me. We work quite often together, what with Drama and Storytelling practically being a sister concept to Imagination.

Well, hard to tell a story without imagination.

Shining Armor...he was the one pony who created something in my line Eclipse could not undo...His own soul. Hehe...Anasi imagines Eclipse would've had a meltdown had she realized that, given he gave her almost as much trouble as she did!

Yep. Would have been hysterical.

“Anasi...it is time...” said my brother Mortis. Why is he here? Hehe, do not forget, dear audience! The 13th is not only the Concept of Death, but of Rebirth!

I know, I know.

Imperatrix was also nearby, but that was mainly because the act required for this involved her Concept. While Lust is one of the Seven Deadly Sins, like most things (including my personal favorite, Pride), it only becomes a Sin when taken to an extreme. Sexual desire has its place in creation, including the act of making life. She simply gave a nod telling us it was time for Anasi to take her leave. Farewell, sister!

This I like, small bit of philosophy without becoming preachy.

It means side story.

Did you read the fallen generosity story that went with this?
