The Lunar Rebellion sought to bring Nightmare Moon to power over Equestria, and for two long years, a war was fought for that very purpose. In the end, Nightmare Moon was defeated, but Celestia had  become broken. She lost her faith in the ponies that once only knew love, and she walled herself inside her castle at Canterlot.

For five years, no pony had seen or heard from the goddess. In her absence, Equestria falls apart at the seams. Endless skirmishes are fought over petty land disputes. Love and tolerance are gone from the land. Ponies begin to revel in the art of war. When a dangerous threat emerges from the ashes of the Lunar Rebellion, all hope seems gone from the world. But some ponies aren't willing to let Equestria fall.

Four unlikely ponies step up to correct the mistakes of the past. In their quest to restore Equestria, they will learn that through the magic of friendship, all things are possible.

This story is presented as part of the Pony Fiction Writer's Month for September 2011. Enjoy.

Whew, that was a long read. Good one though.

Excellent and diverse cast; everyone experienced a satisfying amount of development.

Settings that felt rich and varied.

A plot that felt truly epic in scale, with great structure and a good resolution.

All in all, this is one of those stories that I can't find anything to gripe about. Excellent writing style, great characters, and a good story. Well done!

This is awesome. Two chapters in, and I'm quite hooked. The story is is unique, yet so similar at the same time, I can't help but like it. I'll comment again once I read through it all.

#3 · Chapter 20 · 150w, 1d ago · · ·

"Kin of Luna"...

AAAAAWW YEEEAH

This is simply beautiful.

You, my good sir, have one your self a free sarsaparilla!

Alright, Bard is officially the awesome pony of the group :pinkiehappy:

#6 · Chapter 1 · 150w, 1d ago · · ·

This chapter is an excellent introduction to what promises to be a wonderful story!

#7 · Chapter 20 · 150w, 1d ago · · ·

Very good read!:pinkiehappy:

Although I found the ending kind of cheesy in my own tastes, this is nonetheless a very worthy fic!

#8 · Chapter 20 · 150w, 20h ago · · ·

Very much reminded me of the dragonlance serries, but I liked it. Very good for being done in a month.

#9 · Chapter 20 · 149w, 6d ago · · ·

Very good story, you write so well :heart:

#10 · Chapter 20 · 149w, 6d ago · · ·

there are no words that i know of that can truly express how much i loved this story, and for being written in only a months time? you are truly a gifted person.  i felt like i was reading an epic. read the whole thing in one day, i just couldn't stop, this story has renewed my interest in reading all forms of literature. again i say it, i have no way of expressing how amazing this epic was. thank you graciously for writing this

#11 · Chapter 20 · 149w, 5d ago · · ·

Great story. I only wish that I could dream up plots as good and concrete as this one. Let it be known that from every journey I see, I take inspiration from to better my own. So, from an aspiring dream-weaver to an accomplished one... Thank you. Thank you for writing of fantasies long sought and rarely found. Hopefully any yarn I spin will be half as good as the gossamer threads you so carefully spin into webs.

It's not every day that I read something in a story that I don't see coming at least two chapters ahead-- not just in fanfics, but in published works as well.  I'm glad to report that this story surprised me on several occasions-- and, on a completely different level, by creating a detailed story with well-developed characters and an entirely OC cast (er... Celestia doesn't count.  :P).

Anyway-- thanks for the read, it was a lot of fun.

Whew, finally finished reading this. A great fic indeed, marred only by a fair few grammatical errors and name mixups. Seeing as it was all written in the space of a month, I guess that's to be expected. That and the constant use of "arms" instead of "forelegs" were the only things that really bothered me.

Just found out that "arm" is a proper way of saying "foreleg", at least as far as horses are concerned. It still sounds a little weird to me, but oh well, fair enough.

#15 · Chapter 1 · 147w, 14h ago · · ·

Ohhh! That was a great introduction. Can't wait to read the rest of the story.

#16 · Chapter 20 · 145w, 1d ago · · ·

Really good. :pinkiehappy:

I was promised an adventure story and that's what I got.

Likeable characters who really brought the story to life.

A well planned plot with good pacing and a quality as vast as is its scale. (Not being pretentious here by the way, I just really hate those stories which pretend to be epic journeys across worlds and actually aren't.)

A world which really comes to life.

And of course a lesson in friendship. Good stuff.:trollestia:

Mother of Celestia! I cant wait!

#22 · Chapter 21 · 131w, 2d ago · · ·

I had just finished Children of the Sun and was hoping there would be a sequel. After seeing this I'm so excited. :rainbowkiss:

#23 · Chapter 21 · 131w, 2d ago · · ·

> the time her caught an arrow in his side

He... Oh wait, this is just a preview, never mind yet. ^^

Still looks like it'll be fun. Glad you're moving forward on this one.

#24 · Chapter 21 · 131w, 1d ago · · ·

YAY :yay:

#25 · Chapter 21 · 131w, 1d ago · · ·

This is the best OC story I have read. I would add more praise, but it would probably just sound like excited gurgling noises.

#26 · Chapter 21 · 115w, 3d ago · · ·

This tale... Wow. It was fantastic. I read One Last Quest quite sometime ago and loved it. It is among my favorite pony fics, and caused me to read all of your other work I could find.  When I saw you had donr a NaNoWriMo I of course downloaded it straight away, but it took me these six months to start reading. I started on break today at work. I finished this evening. Needless to say, I was completely enthralled and could hardly put it down. I love your charachters and your plot lines, and truly believe you are one of the best, if not THE best, adventure writer in the fandom.  I wish I had read this months ago so I could have been talking it up to other bronies all this time!  Thank you super much for this amazing story. :rainbowkiss:

#27 · Chapter 12 · 49w, 5d ago · · ·

:facehoof: I kept seeing "Star Chase" in which I think you meant "Star Heart" and "Iron Hoof" is actually "Iron Pick". Will you revise it, smooth the rough surface and some spelling errors?

:twilightsmile: However, you made quite a gripping story. You had some potential to be a great author.

"That griffon just flipped me the bird.” The ponies shared a confused look. It clicked for Ridgeline a second later. “Oh, it’s a rude gesture among the griffons. It looks uh…” He looked at the hoof holding the rock, then at the other. He was at loss. “Well, ponies don’t have anything similar."

I love this bit. :rainbowlaugh:

#31 · Chapter 14 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·

I am guessing that Trixie is Bard's descendent, Rarity is Pick's, AJ is Chase's. I dunno bout RD, Twi or Fluttershy, but I'm pretty sure Pinkie is Ridgeline's or Muffins' cause of the rock farming. So that sorta explains the Gilda-Pinkie feud in griffon the brush off......
