STORY PREVIEW: The Mad Seeress of the North · 7:03am Jan 6th, 2016

While poor Nyx is confined to a week's bed rest in the Crystal Castle's infirmary (by order of King Sombra himself), let me take the opportunity to give you a preview of her story, to be submitted for moderator approval tomorrow.

The recruit's eyes widened. “'Hunt'?” he repeated. “You say that like he's a predator!”

The Captain smirked. “You didn't notice his fangs? Tell me when you have ever seen a pony with fangs?”

The stallion shuddered. It was true. Herbavores did not possess fangs. So what did that make King Sombra?

- they all blinked and their King was gone.

“What?” the recruit whispered. “How?”

“You'll see. Wait,” his Captain nodded, settling in on a rock. He pulled out his sword and began sharpening the blade, knowing there was nothing more to do now but hold their position.
