Following the return of the Crystal Empire, Twilight begins some intensive research into the history of the Empire and its late king. Modern historians know next to nothing about the enigmatic dark mage. Who was he? Did he have family? Loved ones?

The answers to those questions changes everything the Element of Magic knows about herself, and in doing so catches the attention of a shadow that yet clings to the frailty of life...

Equestria was at war once more. After hundreds of years of peace, war has once more set its hooves on the country of harmony.

At the head of this all was Shining Armor, the Captain of the elite Royal Guard. However, despite his years of service, nothing in the peacetime service of the Guard could have prepared him for the life and death stakes of the war. Given the task of protecting Equestria, he must now navigate the battlefields on the north and the political intrigues of Canterlot as he and his comrades try to save their country from the ravages of war and the changes it brings with it.

This story is kind of a sequel to My Life as a Bipedal Quadruped


After the noble and mighty King Sombra was purged of the evil inside his mind and found his way again, he reunited with his long lost love, Princess Celestia.

Years later, their son is nearing adulthood, and he has problems. Problems with his sense of identity, with his image, with awkward relatives, with fillies, and with being surrounded by world saviors. He needs a break, he needs something. Some opportunity for heroics, or he's going to rebel by becoming a guidance counselor.

During her usual nightly patrol of the dream realm, Luna happens upon a filly whose nightmares concern her. Twilight and Celestia investigate the filly's whereabouts, only to discover the filly is homeless and has not attended school in some time. During the night, Luna hunts the filly down to bring her to a foster home where she'll be cared for until a family adopts her. Everything ends well.

So, why is Luna heartbroken?

Author's Note: I started writing this story in January 2018, before seasons 8 and 9. I know what happens in those seasons, but with 20+ chapters (and getting longer if I continue it), it's too much to go back and try to integrate those seasons into the story. The last full episode I watched was Fame and Misfortune from season 7, so if anything in this story contradicts the actual canon, it's not on purpose. This is why I marked it "alternate universe", despite I wanted it to be a future version of the canon. Oh, well.

This story was inspired by Welcome, Princess Light Breeze on fanfiction.net by Snoopy7c7. I'm also aware there's already a story where Luna has a foal, but I haven't read that, so any similarities are coincidental and nothing more.

Turns out, Sombra is back, wow. Discord takes it upon himself, as a FRIENDSHIP EXPERT to help reform Sombra. How the heck will he pull this off? Sombra is a stubborn guy, he likes crystals, hates not-being a king. So it's not going to be an easy task to reform him. Well, it's going to go much worse than expected.

Princess Cadance has some problems in her sovereignty over the Crystal Empire. For one thing, she isn't even a crystal pony. Another thing is that the crystal ponies would much rather have the former King Sombra rule over them... despite previously reigning with an iron hoof and treating the populace like whipping mules. To prevent civil war, Cadance has a brilliant idea to ensure her bid for the throne while pleasing the people: have an election.

And it's any wonder ponies don't have democracy.
