First in a Saga.
Currently rated Teen. May jump to M if the fic requires in later chapters. Crossposted on Fanfiction.net. While it isn't going to be grimdark, it is marked dark for certain scenes. Will contain a crossover VERY late in the story, so the crossover tag is in place. Human tag is for occasions in this story that feature the ponies in anthro form as well as actual humans who may show up.
Cover artwork....or just artwork in general for the fic, would be greatly appreciated, since I have ZERO skills when it comes to drawing. PM me if interested in providing artwork for the fic. You will get full credit for any artwork provided if used in some way on the fic.
Recently, I discovered that this fic has gained a listing on TVTropes.org! But could use a bit more love. Maybe someone will expand on it in the future and make it its own page. Keep your fingers crossed.
