After the War of the Ring and the return of peace to Middle-earth, Gandalf the White departs for Equestria to pay a visit to two old friends of his; specifically, two old alicorn friends of his.
What he does not foresee is that Equestria, like its populace, has changed vastly since his previous visit, and as a result he is quite unprepared for what lies ahead. Can the old wizard endure the trials that this new journey will bring to him? Surely, but only if he makes a few more friends along the way.
Six of them, to be exact.

What does one do when their loved ones are taken away from them, much too early?
A visit to Zecora's hut by Spike and Twilight takes an unexpected, tragic turn.
As grief and guilt eat away at her, what can Twilight do to cope? Can her friends and family help as she descends into a storm of suffering?

FIRST AND FOREMOST: No Assassin's Creed related material here.
All seems well in Equestria until a certain draconequus returns with a vengeance. This time, however, there will be no more fun, games, and chocolate rain. For some reason, Discord's not joking around anymore.
Twilight Sparkle and her friends must die.
Since this is Discord, however... there's going to be a convoluted way to do it. And what could be more convoluted than having a ragtag band of pony mercenaries with a shrouded past (at least attempt) to eliminate the targets?
Co-authored with DinamoKiev, a friend of mine. Rated T for strong-ish language in later chapters and gore. Some very slight grimdark elements later, possibly, and be aware of possible character death.
Lovely cover image is from Ponies'R'us. I do not own it.

So, I Must Say... · 4:36am
I can feel all your patience waning... :C
But you see, the story is very much alive, as doubtful as that statement is.
As I was, once again, working away at the chapter last week, I wondered: why isn't anything clicking? Why am I having such a difficult time writing?
And then I realized that it was because I didn't start the chapter right. My attempt to begin the story from Fluttershy's POV did not suit the frame of mind I had taken while writing the previous chapters, and so the rest of the writing suffered. I believe that I will have an easier time writing from the perspective of the other ponies once they've been introduced.
So, I decided to start from scratch, while recycling many elements from the previous draft so as to save time. The writer's block just disappeared, as if by magic. Finally, ACTUAL WORK IS BEING DONE. I can feel less guilty now and stop the endless late-night clopfic browsing... uh I mean- what?
Of course, I really don't blame anyone who has long since lost interest in this story. I likely would've myself had I been in your shoes.
And no, this is not a lie. I'm no politician.
Peace, y'all! Stay tuned!
