    A bit of some bad news

    I'm afraid I have some bad news in regards to the story. About a few days ago, my 4 year old laptop up and died on me which pretty much destroyed the latest chapter. I was hoping to get it up by month's end but now I'm afraid it won't be out until Feb.

    Villainy 101

    And so the identity of the Shadow has been revealed. I know it was pretty obvious from the start but at least I hope I made it dramatic enough.

    I'm back baby!

    Greetings to all my readers. It's certainly been a while hasn't it? My goal was to finish this story within a year but it seems as though life had other plans for me. Over the past few months, I've had to spend an unexpected hiatus on personal matters. You see, I suffer from depression but a new therapist and new medication has done wonders for me. It's also forced me to take a good hard

    The Discord Effect

    So let's talk about what I've done in this latest chapter. Mirror Discord being defeated by the Shadow following his possession of Mirror Sombra is what's known as a Worf Effect; when the biggest and strongest character is defeated by the villain as a means to show how much of a threat the villain is. Not only did the Shadow defeat MD, but also managed to seal his powers, and by extension those

Just a few things I wanted to talk about in regards to the story.

First of all, one of the reasons it took me so long to update was I wanted to see how Sombra's origins during Fiendship is Magic and Siege of the Crystal Empire measured up to the backstory I created for him. And to my chagrin they did not. I also was a bit unsatisfied with them making Sombra a Woobie Destroyer of Worlds when I think he works much better as a being of pure evil. I did like a few of the ideas IDW used such as a dark power existing beneath the Crystal Empire that's suppressed by the Crystal Fair, but most of what they used will not be included in this story. I've often argued with detractors of the comics on Derpibooru regarding their continuity with the show to just do as Victor Wong said in Big Trouble in Little China; Take what you want and leave the rest for someone else, like a salad bar. And I think I'm gonna leave most of what IDW wrote for someone else. Just treat my story and theirs as separate timelines, just like the different Gundam or Tenchi Muyo series.

I'd also like to talk about some of the new characters that have appeared, specifically the three stooges who are going to play a major role in the coming chapters:

Mirror Flash: I don't exactly hate Flash Sentry, but I don't exactly like him either. That being said, I thought it might be fun to take advantage of his status as a scrappy. Mirror Flash, rather than being the charming cool guy we met in Equestria Girls; is cocky, arrogant, and rude; kind of like how EG Flash was while under the control of the Sirens. Originally the newest member of Mirror Celestia's elite Shadowbolt squadron, Flash fled after Mirror Sombra drained her and Mirror Luna of evil, eventually hooking up with Fleur and Bulk and becoming the group's unofficial leader. He wants nothing more than to be on top and has decided Prime Sombra is his ticket to obtaining it.

Mirror Fleur-Dis-Lee: While Prime Fleur seems to be happily involved with Fancy Pants, Mirror Fleur is a hustler and gold digger who Celestia recruited to be her eyes and ears in Canterlot. Her only allegiance is to herself and she's willing to manipulate and backstab anypony to get what she wants.

Mirror Bulk Biceps-While Prime Bulk seems to be a gentle giant (as well as possibly having a hidden intellectual side as his EG version showed) Mirror Bulk is more animalistic and savage. Think of him as an evil version of Fluffle Puff.

Finally, while I'm writing the next chapter, here's a couple of other stories I've written to tide you all over and keep you busy:

The Ugly Duckling: Not so much a fanfic but my attempt at adapting into a literary format one of my favorite Disney shorts

Outlaw Star: The Ryunoken Sword: This was my first attempt at writing an epic fanfiction, inspired by the anime Outlaw Star, back when I went by the pseudonym The Ronin. I should warn you that I wrote this a long time ago so the writing might not be very good. In fact, looking back I think I might have made my OC more of a marty stu than I probably intended. It's also a bit more adult oriented than Shattered Glass so read with discretion.

To Live Rightly: Another fic written under my former pseudonym, this one for Basilisk, the single greatest ninja anime ever made. And no I will not reconsider Naruto. Like Ryunoken Sword, it's also somewhat adult oriented.
