Crippled by smog since the day he was born, a genius inventor is ripped from his home and cast into a world of backroom politics and the dangerous games of immortals. A war with the ruthless Griffon Empire and its equally twisted allies looms on the horizon. Good ponies will die before the threat has subsided, but love conquers all. . . doesn't it?
A steampunk/war fic set in an alternate universe designed to fit the story as well as possible. Some stuff will be different from the canon universe, but hey, this is fanfiction. Rated T for language, war violence, and the aftereffects.
