In a bid for the terrible power of the Flashstone Amulet, Corona has released an ancient evil from it's prison and has let it loose upon the capital city of Cavallia, Roam. Princess Cadence is forced to defend her home and her subjects alone against a power that has toppled ancient empires & gods alike.

This fic takes place in the RDDs Lunaverse in early summer.

So there will be more? It's currently marked as "complete."

:facehoof: I'm so sorry. I knew there was something I missed. Yes there will be two more chapters before the story finishes, they just need editing, sorry for the confusion.

The fic was once one whole chapter and so I marked it as complete, but then I broke it up a few weeks ago for editing and uploading and forgot to change the tag.

Thank you for telling me though, it would have been embarrassing if it had gone on any longer. :pinkiehappy:

Interesting. Another thing for Celestia to regret as the ages past. Do you suppose that she'll take to wearing sneakers when she comes to her senses?
Somehow, I keep picturing the ponies of the future saying "Oooooh, look at me, I'm Celestia, I'm cool....Oh, LOOK!!!! I'm wearing sand shoes!!"

Yeah releasing Squirks a risky move, there's mroe to her plan than meets the eye though. :raritywink:

:rainbowlaugh: It seems i'm not the only one who's been watching the fiftieth anniversary. :pinkiehappy:

Squirk is now officially The Gravemind.

Well that was suitably chuthuloid.

'That is not dead which can eternal lie and with strange aeons even death may die'

Not too shabby. Squirk, eh? Dang, the Lunaverse is rivaling the Hasboverse for G1-G4 connections. ;)

I second that motion :yay: and there's more to come soon. Thanks for the comment. :)

TY :pinkiehappy:

Not quite, I based it off Squirk G1 minion of the same name. Odd that they share the same name though. :trixieshiftright:

Thank you, that is exactly what I was going for,

Thanks! I love bringing back G1 villains as major monsters. :pinkiehappy:

So is this in the main folder, or the Season 2 folder. Seems to be in both.

Also, I'm almost disappointed this won't be a TMNT crossover. And great job on making Squirk just so...alien.

I initially put it in the main folder, as I was uncertain I was allowed to put it into the S2 folder. After getting permission I moved it, i'm not sure hwo to remove it form main though, i'll go see about doing that now, TY.

Turns out I have no idea how to remove it.

Heh, sorry about that and thank you, i'm glad that came across 'alien' is pretty much exactly what I was going for. :twilightsmile:

This is promising..

Oh Celestia, this is just going to be yet another entry for the future "actions I regret" list.

That it is, still at least it'll make an amusing anecdote to tell her grand kids. :trollestia:

That was frightening!

:yay: Heh sorry, thank you though, that is exactly what I was going for. Thanks for the comment. :pinkiehappy:

Releasing monsters will not make Celestia very popular. I see no way that this can possibly go wrong.

It's certainly not a good call from a public relations point of view, I agree.

I see no way that this can possibly go wrong.

Of course it can't, releasing eldrich horrors from the dawn of time never goes wrong... right? :scootangel: Thanks for the comment.

Well, she's no pushover, that's for sure.

I've got to say, badass Cadance, not what I was expecting. Though this is a darker world, so it only makes sense she'd be stronger than her cannon counterpart. Makes me feel bad for Chrysalis if she's ever dumb enough to try what she did at the wedding.

Very true, thank you for the comment. :pinkiehappy:

Thank you for the comment I really appreciate it. Yeah, this version of Cadence has been on her own more than I imagine M!verse Cadence was. So she's a bit more proactive and used to dealing with threats. Though even canon Cadence can do some impressive stuff, like the force field in S3. I definitely imagine Chrysalis will have to put more thought into any plans involving Cadence in this verse, though if the upgrade goes to scale... wow, she'd going to be scary in S3.
Thanks again! :twilightsmile:

ph'nglui mglw'nafh Squirk R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

You know what I just realized Cadenza reminds me of? With the way she's speaking, etc.? A magical girl, in the vein of Card Captor Sakura or Sailor Moon.



ph'nglui mglw'nafh Squirk R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

You know, you're right! Squirk should totally build himself a R'lyeh, then he can sleep more comfortably and have fish people to look after him and serve as his heralds. :pinkiehappy:

That image and magical girls in general is disturbingly apropos, considering I've been re-reading the Sailor V manga and conceiving AU fics for it. Cosmic... :rainbowderp:

But yeah, I can see where you're coming form, translating justice/rage filled goddess of love speech into a modern goddess of love is tricky.

Granted magical rarely jams spears into their enemies stomachs and leave them at the bottom of the ocean, I get the impression her response would get a frosty reception at the annual inter-dimensional meeting. :scootangel:

Thanks for the comment!

This was amazing. I loved everything in this pretty much. I know that's not too constructive but dang!! Although there were a couple of points where there was a misspelling and a few times a part of a sentence repeated itself twice. Nothing a quick run through on Word couldn't fix.

Pink Pony of Love vs Cthulhu - Fight!

I'm not sure if its a good idea to keep Squirk relatively close to Roam though that's a bunch of evil cultists waiting to happen.

Cadenza was met with pain, acidic blood coated her body as she dived. Cadenza was met with pain: Acidic blood coated her body as she dived, stray blasts from the amulet cut at her, and Squirk's tentacles crashed against one another, sometimes hitting her.

I think this might have a duplication.

Squirk or Corona will now do something clever that no one saw coming. That is my theory.

:pinkiehappy: Thank you, i'm so glad you enjoyed it!I'll be on the lookout for those problems you mentioned, thank you for telling me of them.


Pink Pony of Love vs Cthulhu - Fight!

That's awesome, you win twenty internet points!
Oh and don't worry, Squirk's been resealed in the 'largely' uninhabited northern sea once again and almost no one knows who he is or even remembers he exists. heh, in hindsight, eating Krang probably wasn't his brightest idea.

I think this might have a duplication.

I tried searching the document and I couldn't find a duplication, still i'll keep a lookout for it, thanks for the tip. :twilightsmile:

There's still the epilogue to come, and you are certainly right on the money with one of those theories. :pinkiehappy: Thanks for the comment!


The duplication is the section I highlighted 'Cadenza was met with pain, acidic blood coated her body as she dived' appears twice.

Ah found it, sorry, I assumed it was an exact copy, it seems a line from the first draft got replaced, but not removed. Thanks for the heads up, I cut it out. :twilightblush:

Way to step up, magical girl Cadance.

Thanks for the comment! I never even realized it was pulling in that sort of vibe, though i'm quite pleased that it did. :pinkiehappy:

Well, Cadance took a level in badass, that's for sure. One thing, though. *Punches Celestia with a tire iron* You do NOT stop distress calls with eldrich abominations rear their head and the citizenry's lives are at stake! :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Glad you liked my take on Cadence. :pinkiesmile: I'm pretty sure Corona would just shrug of a tire iron, given her response to Squirk in chapter one. :scootangel:To be fair though, she did plan on stepping in to resolve the matter herself if Cadence couldn't handle it. Not that, that is a justification.
Thanks for commenting!

I know that feel, it's exactly what I was aiming for. But hopefully they can straighten things out in the future. :scootangel:

Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you enjoyed this piece. :pinkiehappy:

magenta eyes taking in the crumpled alicorns form


excellent story.

Thanks for the catch and the compliment, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :pinkiehappy:

Just as Celestia has to be crazy to better fight the real threat, the amulet has to be whole so it can be more properly destroyed.

What real threat? Sorry if I misunderstood. :twilightblush: No clue what's going to happen to the amulet, I guess that's in other authors hands now, destroying it 'could' potentially lead it's magic back to Squirk, or do something else, or nothing at all. Hopefully the mystery will be intriguing. :scootangel:

Thanks for the comment. :pinkiehappy:

Zecora point blank told the Luna Six that for the world to be saved from whatever crisis ends this season, Corona had to be a well-intentioned extremist with a heaping helping of paranoia. Her being sane right now would get everypony killed.

:rainbowderp: I feel like I've missed something rather large. I know she mentioned a storm of chaos, but I figured the prophecy wasn't 100%, though I could and probably am wrong. TY for the clarification.

3610908 A tire iron has iron in it, which traditionally nullifies magic. I'm also real and she isn't. Therefore I auto-win against her. :rainbowlaugh:

How can one defeat that which is not there? :trollestia: :scootangel:

Ahh, there we go, I was wondering what Corona had gotten up to while Cadance was off fighting the beastie.

That was a somewhat touching meeting between the two of them, it's a shame Corona couldn't let go of her issues.

Thanks for the comment, i'm glad you found it touching, that's more or less what I was going for, hopefully the two of them will get another chance in S3. :twilightsmile:

Thinking it over, it was Lucifer who loved God so much to not bow to his master's creation, and that love is what caused the original schism of Heaven. Celestia may have that love to dwarf the sun for her sister, her people, her niece, but all of that only forces her down that path of madness, trying to break the hold Luna has on her subjects in the name of protecting her from herself. Deep shit right there.

Okay. Celestia needs punching. Massive amounts of punching. Eff. HER! :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Does Squirk appear in this story?
