During the biggest snow storm of the century, a mysterious cloaked creature-battered, bruised, and alone save for a small filly barely alive in his arms-stumbles into the sleepy town of Ponyville, where friendships will be made and tested, and an ancients order of warriors will arise once again from the dust of near extinction, in hopes of stopping a world war, and to end the reign of one of the most vile beings to step foot in their lands.
Well, Mares and Gentlecolts, this is my first attempt to give back to the community that has given me so much: from laughs, to le feels, to all the mushy shit that I love so much.
A couple of things I would like to mention first is that :
1) This is an alternate Equestria, where there are no Elements of Harmony. Where Discord and Chrysalis rule along side Princess Celestia, Luna, and Cadence. The Mane Six are still very important characters, but this story is mainly about several different original characters, mostly the main protagonist, Agalloch. If this is a turn off to you, then I apologize. I just wanted to give my own little spin of this world that we all love so much
2) The human tag is there because the protagonist, Agalloch, is human, though he is not going to be called as such (at least not yet) in the story for awhile. Why? Because he was born and raised in this world, where no humans have been found as of yet, which means that there are no means to identify his species, though he will be called several different things as surrogates to his species name, as well as his true name. I also understand that HiE get a bad rep on this site. If your bothered that the protagonist is human, than I'm sorry again. I, as a writer and member of the human species, feel a bit more comfortable writing about a human.
3) and lastly, if you do read this story, thanks for giving it a read. i'll try my best to entertain the living shit out of y'all.
and, thanks to the band Agalloch, for the inspirational music to write this to, for the name of the protagonist, and the title of the story and book. All rights go to them, and Hasbro for MLP FiM. Give them a listen, if your into metal.
And so for now, cheers my friends
your ever ubiquitous writer, Dagobahgreen
