Capacitor


A bioform originating from the planet known as Earth. Incapable of self-levitation. Batteries not included. Self-declared mortal enemy of logical inconsistency.

T

Before the reign of the Regal Sisters, a pony gazed into the abyss and lost her sanity.
In her madness, she was granted foresight and issued a prophecy that told of the reign of two sisters up to the creation of a gate to the void, the existenceless abyss her insanity and power came from.
More than a thousand years have passed since then. The Equestrians have forgotten about the prophecy and the cult that the mad seer has sparked is all but gone. Only a single follower remains, perpetuating a disputable "gift" passed throughout generations.
Finally, the stars are right and the Princess of the Night returns, starting a series of events that culminate in the ascent of a pony whose magic might be strong enough to breach the boundaries of her dimension.
Now all the demented cultist has to do is to get her to do just this.


Takes place during the second half of the third season. For the most part, at least.
Should not directly contradict show canon. Apparent contradictions are either intentional and will be eventually resolved or errors on my part.


Shout-out to Cygnia for being my lovely preliminary reader.

It's not really hard to trick twilight,
Hey twilight want to try out this cool new spell?
Twilight " A new spell? gimme gimme gimme!!! "

True.
Celestia exactly pulled that off in the Season Three finale.
And it worked.

Elder God-like beings?

Planning and manipulation spanning over a thousand years?

The implication that Twilight, the Mane Six and the Princesses owe a good part of their success to the benevolence of a secret organization manipulating them for their own agenda?

Me likey! Have an honorary mustache thingy! :moustache:

This is an interesting read. I'll be watching to see where this goes.

Good luck, my friend.:twilightsmile:

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it so far. :pinkiesmile:
I would be saying a something about where I'm going to go, but... Spoilers... :scootangel:

3528320>>3528563

Spoilers? :pinkiegasp:

Will there be mayonnaise and tentacles? That mayonnaise better be for fries, or so Cards help me, I will do something deeply unsavory!

Cthulhu Fhtaghn!

Hmm... hmm-hmm.
Hmm-hmmmmm.. hm?
Oh, sorry, don't mind me. I'm just here hoping to see Twilight get shafted by a Cthulhu-esque entity of horribly unimaginable mental proportions.

Funny how you seem to portray Twilight. Personally, I've always felt that she was sort of dim witted when it came to the use of her magic, considering her lacking ability to use it in appropriate situations, her numerous magical fuck-ups, and the fact that she says "magic of friendship" without being mocking or parodical. Still, I guess it's nice to see her as an actual intellectual, although I personally feel that it's an interpretation far divorced from the canon. After all, her scientific theory is rather shoddy, as per my views on Feeling Pinkie Keen.

Now, I shall await more awesome greatness thingamajigs! Tally-horse!

Well, one characteristic of the english language is that, in most cases when the gender isn't indicated by some form of title or the like, it's assumed that one is speaking about a male individual. Barring things like gender stereotyped jobs and the like, "he" is your go-to gender for genderless, sapient beings, I'd assume.

You could also just go for "it", and that also works quite alright. Like Slaanesh, Slaanesh is definitely an "it". Why? Because Slaanesh is everything. If you get off to dangling children from the ceiling using peanutbutter, Slaanesh is it. If your kink is gigantic reptiles with millipenises, then Slaanesh is it. If your fetish is a female midget being raped by an ewe that's magically gained just enough intelligence to use a strap-on, then Slaanesh became it five years before you were even born. Praise the ewe - I mean, Slaanesh. :twilightoops:

Or, if you want to amuse me, you could go with "she." No particular reason, I just think it'd suit my graces.

Man, I'm still enjoying the shit out of this.

Eldritch being of Mindwarping Existence and Unending Force comes through the Portal, becoming Incarnate upon the mortal plane.
Is super cute mare.

Make it so.

I can't say nothing to that, I'm afraid. According to my (somewhat fallible) memory, the final design decisions on the incarnation were already made sometime in early April, so... just wait and see... I guess... :derpytongue2:

If Everfree was voiced, what would she sound like?

4756218
Tough question, I have to say.
When reading her out in my head, she always had a bit of Celestia, though that's mostly because of her 'princessy' mannerisms. She's not quite as level or calm.
Hm...
Maybe a bit like Female Shepard, I'd wager? :applejackunsure:

It was [...] kin to conscious thought, but not her own.

Like that. Imagine a thought appearing in your head, not thought by yourself but an utterly inhuman mind. It isn't really sound in the physical sense, and only individual perception gives it distinct (subjective) quality.

His voice is described in Chapter Five.
Aside from that, when talking to the voices in his head, he isn't actually speaking properly, but incomprehensibly muttering under his breath like the madpony he is.


The apparent time paradox in this comment (this comment being older than some of the comments it replies to) has been brought to you by the magic of editing and a strange compulsion to clog up the comments section as little as possible.

“Apparently, The Procedure Was Only Partly Successful.

If the one who said this was voiced, what would he sound like?

If the Listener was voiced, what would he sound like?

I'd say he, because Spike is male.

Have you ever considered submitting this story to Equestria Daily? You can find out how to do so here.

4756411 What about my "submit to Equestria Daily" question?

4912056
Ah, yes, sorry.
I have indeed considered your suggestion when you made it, after you made it and even before you made it.
After deciding it would only have potential benefits (in other words: Heck, why not?) I did submit my story.
Now I am on the 'Moon', and I don't really know why. :derpytongue2:

Oh, and thanks for favouriting!

Incarnation #277

Heh, finally title makes a sense. :raritywink:

And then I saw first line of first chapter and remembered that already saw #277 ages ago.

CCLXXVII was on my back burner very, very long, but last night I had a blast reading it.
It was a fine ride, will wait for more.

6793876
Great to hear you had fun! :pinkiehappy:
As you noticed with the very first line, I like to dot around a few little things that don't make much sense until later or only if you look at the bigger picture. Have a :moustache: for knowing Latin!

In the meantime, I'll be trying to make your wait worth it. The next chapter is well on its way and will feature a very old pony, a young pony, and a bit of drama.

Congratulations, Luna, you just got friendly neighbour avatar of Cosmic Terror that is going to make some renovations. :trollestia:

This is stupid theory is a sociopath trying to take the moral high road.

While I mostly agree on the latter part, I would like you to elaborate on the former statement.
Why do you think this is stupid?

Why'd you make this chapter so long? Will any future chapters be this long?

10363457
The short answer is: It just happened. :derpytongue2:
The slightly more elaborate answer is: When I wrote this chapter, I knew what things had to happen in it and those events formed a relatively cohesive whole. So when the chapter turned out a lot longer than I thought it would, I didn't really know how to split up in a way that made sense; that's why I didn't break it up into smaller chapters.
I really don't think chapters this long are going to be the rule going forward. If a future chapter does turn out longer than it really should be in the writing processs, I'll probably put some more effort into splitting it up into smaller chunks.
