After his violent defeat, the former tyrant King Sombra has managed to claw his way back from the land of the dead and has returned to Equestria to seek revenge on Princess Celestia and the Elements of Harmony. However, the Emperor of Darkness is no fool. He knows that he cannot simply seek retribution on the Main Six or the Princess of Day, so he waits, gathering intel on his foes, learning of their weaknesses. When the time is right, he will strike. Can our heroes overcome King Sombra's plot for vengeance?

Sequel: The Return of the King

*Note: This story takes place in my official headcanon universe, not in the one for Shattering a Heart of Darkness

Chapters (20)

Deciding to find a wife, King Sombra arrives in Ponyville and finds the perfect mare: Twilight Sparkle. But how in Tartarus' name is he supposed to win her heart? Charlie Daniels, help him out!

This was inspired by an apparent cut scene from the episode “Slice of Life,” where King Sombra would’ve gotten into a musical duel with Octavia Melody a la The Devil Went Down To Georgia. So, I just ran with that idea and rewrote the lyrics to make it a Twibra story. Enjoy!

Chapters (1)

This story is a sequel to When Darkness Falls

King Sombra, the dark sorcerer and former ruler of the Crystal Empire, has been defeated by Twilight Sparkle and the other bearers of the Elements of Harmony, leaving him stripped of his magic and imprisoned deep below the surface of Canterlot Castle. There, he waits for his chance to take revenge against Princess Celestia and conquer Equestria, though his affection for both his long-lost daughter and the mare that he loves have him question everything that he knows. Can the shadow-pony learn forgiveness and mercy or will he let his deep-seated anger and desire for vengeance consume him?

Accepted for an Equestria Daily Story post on September 24, 2017.

Thanks to DoContra for pre-reading, plenty of suggestions, and copy-editing assistance. Thanks to Equestria Daily submission editors for a lot of stuff I fixed after they pointed out I missed it!

Twilight's plan was perfect. Sunset just needed something to make her feel special - and it worked! What happened was wonderful. Magical, even.

... but then why did Sunset look at her like that the next morning?

Special thanks to Zaridan and JWolfSilver for helping with some editing and prereading. Thanks to Wanderer D, Cynewulf, and Skeeter The Lurker for prereading as well. Final thanks to SoloBrony for giving me the idea long ago, even if it took me a while to figure out how to use it.

A sort of spiritual sister story, but in not in any way related continuity wise, to So You've Just Slept With Your Best Friend. If you're curious for more details, check here.

Chapters (1)

Twilight's castle has seen many strange things in its time, but a whole cruise ship's worth of passengers-turned-ponies using it as a way-station to get back to the human world? That's definitely a new one.

But among these visitors, Twilight spots someone she hasn't seen in a very long time, and so decides it's long past overdue to speak with him.
