The Weather Corps: older than Equestria itself, this organization and its members have worked to keep ponies safe from the ravages of natural weather for centuries. It's no easy job, especially with magic around to wreak havoc with even the most benign systems. Yet even as nature lashes out in impersonal fury, a cold, calculating intelligence is waiting in the wings for its chance to seize power and enforce its will upon everypony.
But the Corps is not without its own resources and new ideas, and its members stand ready to do their duty. Even if they need help once in a while.
This story was partially inspired by Birdco's art and writing, and also by the now-defunct webcomic Storm Corps by Chester Lucero (sadly no longer online). However the story, characters, and most (though not all) ideas are original, so this is not strictly a crossover.
Given a "dark" tag for some instances of pony death. Nothing graphic, however. Given the upcoming "Hurricane Fluttershy" episode, I have preemptively marked this as "alternate universe" since undoubtedly canon will Joss this story hard. But I still want to tell it because Pinkie Pie demands it, and she's in my head and won't leave. SEND HELP. And cake, lots of cake and cupcakes and- Pinkie! Get away from the finger control nexus!
