Stick around, and I'll tell you a few tales. What, you think that you've already heard them all? Well, I beg to differ. Sit down right there, and I'll prove it to you...

Collection of one shots, based in the same universe as my previous story, Through a Glass Mirror. Read that story first, and you'll have a better idea of what's happening in this one.

I liked how you left the identity and most aspects of "The Crystal Princess" in shadows as it were. It'll give you a lot of maneuvering room in the future. All in all, this is pretty enjoyable. I like how Sombra was treated as a freak, and is kinda messed up by it (at least for a while.) He comes around eventually, but he was living as basically an adult version of the bogeyman before that.
But once he does come around and learns the value of caring for others, he goes at it full force.
Thanks for writing this!

There are bad ponies in the world. But then there are bad ponies.

And Sombra Blackheart is the baddest of the all.

I'm... actually not sure how to take that.

Explain?

English, you have failed me again. Or succeeded?

"Bad" has become a flexible word to denote things both undesirable and desirable, and much like "sick" and "ill" can, in the right context, be synonymous with "cool," although "bad" typically implies a coolness that is also "hardcore."

And so, I stand by my statement that Sombra Blackheart is the baddest of them all; to wit, Sombra Blackheart is one bad applebucker.

I think that I just might adopt the "Sombra Blackheart" thing.

So he's bad at bucking apples, huh. Lol, I couldn't resist.

I think this chapter does well to underscore exactly how radically things have changed in the intervening time between Through a Glass Mirror and Progress.

Thank you! :twilightsmile: :pinkiesmile: :pinkiehappy:

(I couldn't decide which emote to use :applejackunsure:)

Very well done. I liked how you got the different perspectives of the slaves. The Minotaur and the Gryphon see themselves more as things than actual people, being born to slavery. The Zebra still retains what he can of his culture, and the Dragon (I pretty sure that's what it was) acted as little more than an animal, but grew to respect the ponies and tries to raise his son along those lines.

Did I not mention that they were dragons? :derpyderp1:

Heh, sorry about any confusion there.
