Hail King Sombra


We are all just stories in the end. Official scribe to his Royal Highness King Sombra of the Crystal Empire. His tales are as varied as they are poignant, sad and bittersweet. Remember them well.

Hello from the Shadow Pony's private archives! · 6:54am Dec 8th, 2015

Okay, so just before Thanksgiving started (or was it the week before), I discovered two YouTube videos that literally BLEW MY MIND. Mind you, I always come to the party late - these had been up for YEARS and my husband only just got me into My Little Pony at the end of Season One sometime. And while I started steadily liking it more and more - I kept getting Rarity and Fluttershy mixed up, or forgot their names entirely or what the hell their cutie marks were - for some reason it still took us so damn long even after that to discover these videos.

They literally grabbed me by the FEELS and WOULD NOT LET GO. They were Stacey Solitude's "A Tale of One Shadow" and Silly Filly Studio's "Fall of the Crystal Empire". And from there, I started liking King Sombra more and more.

And more and more and, oh Goddess help me, more and MORE.

You get the idea.

Dark, mysterious, yeah, we got that from his first appearance, but not much more story than that. That was okay, though. I like mysterious. It opens up so much room for growth and potential, especially in our head cannons. I feel so grateful and privileged to have discovered all the incredible, beautiful, AMAZING artwork and fan fiction that has made our Lord King Sombra truly OURS.

After watching the videos, I started digging into FIMFiction and oh, crap, last week I discovered Topside's story, "A Shadow in the Night". (http://www.deviantart.com/users/outgoing?http://www.fimfiction.net/story/264520/a-shadow-in-the-night) All I have to say about THAT story is Holy CRAPBASKETS! You know, for a Pony of Shadows, King Sombra's HOTTER than Celestia's Sun!

Every new story I read and art piece I collect on both 'sites open the creative floodgates in my already demented brain. The ideas for stories have been coming out faster than I can write them down, but my progress on them keeps being interrupted way too much by all the amazing FIMFiction & Deviant Art created by the fans.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

So, in an effort to stay somewhat organized, I created accounts on FIMFiction, DA, TW. My desktop video slideshow numbers 298 Sombra-centric pieces, I keep sneaking off at work to hide in the restroom (where I won't get busted for being on FIMFiction instead of doing my work) while reading, reading and RE-reading Topside's work (damn her in the nicest way possible!) and I don't want to get better.

By the Princesses of Equestria, life is GOOD!

Have a thing for bad boys, do we?

Why YES, 3630459 yes I do.

And My King wouldn't want it any other way!
