All Applejack wants is a kind, good-natured, simple stallion to settle down with. Only problem is, the stallion she's fallen for is anything but that.

No matter how hard she tries, she can't stop herself from falling in love with a villain. A criminal. And she doesn't know why.

But she's determined to figure out the reason, even if it means accepting a shameful truth about herself.


Sex is discussed and reflected on, but not shown.

A year has passed since Twilight's coronation as princess, and the only pony who isn't happy during the anniversary party, is Twilight.

Perhaps what she needs is a night to herself, to reflect on why she's afraid to break free from her chains and find happiness.

Or perhaps what she needs is an escape. A way to run away and forget her problems... just for the night.

Luckily, the perfect escape comes to her in the form of a stranger.

Or perhaps this escape is just her next set of chains.

In the beginning, The Great Weaver brought together the world, from the mountains to the forests. Stitching it together, the Great Tapestry connects all living and nonliving things.

The Changlings found themselves especially connected to this Tapestry. Legend says that the first Changelings fell through the world as it was woven together, only to be caught on the First Weave beneath it all.

But what happens when something else is caught in the Weave?

Prince Phasmatodea, son of Queen Chrysalis, remembers what is was like before he hatched. He remembers being a human. He remembers dying. And he fully intends on avoiding another death.

But being gifted a new life does not matter when one failure, one false step, will lead to your untimely demise in the Changling hive; for Prince Phasma must survive his toughest adversary from the start: Mother Dearest.

Pentagon is in fact, a spider-type changeling. Been one his entire life, actually. When his boyfriend is a butterfly, it generally makes it even harder for Pent to keep his obsessive, predatory personality under control on his molts.

To warn Oculus ahead of time, Pentagon must make it clear that he's actually a spider. That the form he uses isn't his actual form, and so on and so forth.

Oculus being oblivious as Celestia's sunbutt doesn't exactly help at all.
