Lord Destrustor

So long and thanks for all the fics!



A normal day was all it took.
A simple failed prototype, a missed experiment.
There was an explosion, and I woke up. I don't really know what happened between those two events, but I'm fairly certain I shouldn't have awoken in a small, dark box.

I'm scared.

New chapter every week.

Oh... My.... GOSH, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:yay::yay::yay::yay:

This sounds like a crossover. Is it a crossover?

Twi', what the heck did you get yourself into this time?

Other than that; it's a bit early to say stuff. Liking it so far. I was thinking that she would see herself in a mirror at Shy's, or that AJ would come back with one, but you played it differently. So, she might not be partly, um, decayed. That's good, I think.:rainbowderp:

Thumb'd and tracking!

This story reminded me of the way they used to hang bells outside graves, so in case someone was buried alive the groundskeeper would be able to hear it and dig them out. Interesting premise anyway, I'm interested.

Why, thank you!
Not that I know of. So probably not.
I figured one week isn't much time to decompose all that much when handled carefully. Besides, corpses generally get a pretty massive dose of makeup to be presentable at the funeral, so how dead she looks is likely still heavily camouflaged.
Eh, she was fine without anyway. It could have been reassuring in any case.
Yeah, that was me. It'll be more fitting later, though.

already fav it... keep going...

*Breaths heavy on laptop screen*

Wow, Zombie Twilight. This could get interesting...

This is good. I like it a lot. It's so good.

Still, I felt slightly miffed that no one had though to try to wake me up.

Need's A T

4830684 Weren't you reading it? She got herself into a coffin that was buried soon after.:trollestia::rainbowderp:

Anyway, this seems to be off to an interesting start. I look forward to the next chapter.


“Twilight, you… You’ve been dead for a week.”


Huh...Well, that explains the moon then.



Death? Afterlife? No thanks, must go back and figure out what happened ...

Holy hell, now this is how you start a fic. :twilightoops:

Can barely wait for more!

Next week, I promise. This will be the first of my stories to have a regular, guaranteed schedule.
So, I will. Soon.
It certainly does.
Thank you, especially for the typo.

Oh. My. God.

4831049 Yeah, I might have gone overboard thinking zombie-cliches instantly, heh. :twilightsheepish:

That said, I was kinda building that on Applejack's response.

“Twilight, you… You’ve been dead for a week.”

While decayed might be over the top, if she's in a body that has been dead for a week, however that happened, I think it might look a bit unpleasant.
That was just the initial reaction though, didn't think much about it, eh.

EDIT: Also, Gratz Destrustor, it's climbing the Features. Currently in Non-Mature, 2 hours after being posted.

This is good you get a like a fave and a follow can't wait till the next chapter.

Smart and unique way of showing Twilight that she is a heartless monster. :trollestia:

Mirrors are overrated anyway.

I know right

it's climbing the Features. Currently in Non-Mature, 2 hours after being posted.

Thanks, friend!
A mirror wouldn't have confirmed Twi's status to AJ. She would've had to touch her to feel the (absence of) pulse, which she would've been reluctant to do.

Oh man this is a good one I can tell. Why becuase I find myself wanting another chapter to magically appear.
Life after death, undeath, unlife, living dead, or you one might say dead living but that makes less sense.
Oh what fascinating world it must be.:pinkiehappy:

Excelent work M'lord this story has defiantly caught my attention.
Darker Shadows will be watching

4831140 Nah, I was just being a smart-aleck.

4831260 Ah, so she's not decayed yet; I suppose that makes sense for a princess.
If I remember, Egyptians used extremely potent balms to preserve their pharaohs. Combined with the complete lack of air, I think the bodies were preserved for thousands of years or something.

Anywho, smart thinking, dear author. :twistnerd:

4831281 Ah, I couldn't tell for sure, so I replied in earnest.
Meh, I blame it being the middle of the night, or something.

4831260 Speaking of late hours;
This response shouldn't had been as funny as I found it being.

Moar edit: You just got into the Mature-features as well.

4831086 It has a guaranteed schedule? I'm even more ecstatic. :pinkiehappy:

Awesome chapter/story you have earned a like and fave my friend. I cant wait to se how Celestia reacts to this :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Now I'm wondering just what kind of rules Twilight's variety of undeath follows. Judging from the way she was thinking at the beginning, it sounds like she managed to resurrect herself. But how permanent is it? And does it prevent further decay? Speaking of, how hard would it be for her to reattach a body part that falls off? Would she just have to stick it back on? Would it require sewing? Specialized magic? Or would she permanently have to go without any parts that drop off?

Hoping for a "and then ponyville had to get used to its undead librarian princess" ending.

pushing against the cupboards in Fluttershy’s kitchen.

All of my disappoint. :trixieshiftleft:

Otherwise enjoyable. But that's close to being a deal-breaker for me.


Oh suck it up you nancy.

Great story, can't WAIT to see where it goes. If you need help, consider this an invitation to pester me for it.

An interesting premise that I have not seen be done before, good spelling, good grammar, good characterization, believable reactions, well paced. Its got all the signs of a good, well written story.
Its not often that I like and favorite a story just after the first chapter but, this time I did. Its fantastic.
I'm hooked and I cant wait to see how this goes. Good luck and keep up the good work.

:twilightblush:"Dear Princess Celestia:

You remember that Shirt of Graceful Repose the Minotaur president sent to appease Luna after her return when they thought 'banished to the moon' was a euphemism for dead? If you still have that, do you think you could send it to Rarity to be fit to my measurements?
OH! And could you send me West's Guide to Denecrotic Flesh, and Arkham University's Revivification Primer from the double-restricted section of the library?
~Lich Princess Twilight Sparkle"

:trollestia: "Just as planned..."

Twilight has become the Alicorn of Death, this is good to know.:twilightsheepish:

"No I haven't! It's still the exact same day oh."

Well, if she's an animated corpse, [1] she should hold together for quite a while once she gets accustomed to living in the big jar of formaldehyde.

An interesting start: I shall be keeping an eye out for continuing developments.

[1] If not something even more abnormal. If she's dead, why is her magic building up again?

I am intrigued and wish to subscribe to your publication.

Oh man, the atmosphere and the reactions of the characters, really are quite amazing. Fantastic work, and it is only made better by the promise of a release schedule. Always nice to see a writer with a plan.

This is going to be good~:rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:
In addition, the writing is good and reads like someone competent wrote it:pinkiehappy: (just to be sure, I meant that as a compliment)


I figured one week isn't much time to decompose all that much when handled carefully. Besides, corpses generally get a pretty massive dose of makeup to be presentable at the funeral, so how dead she looks is likely still heavily camouflaged.

Meh, she's a magical alicorn pony princess; that's good enough to allow plot convenience in my opinion. Let her be as good as the day she died, because why not?


Oh my.

This is very interesting.

Please continue. :moustache:

Hmm. If it was a regular explosion that killed her, given the degree of comic violence we've seen Ponies just shrug off, I would picture her as horribly mangled...of course, with magical experiments, the term "regular explosion" doesn't necessarily apply.

I wonder if Rainbow Dash will consider this "awesome?" :rainbowhuh:

So it begins.

She needs to remember to keep herself nice and clean, and to not get dismembered anytime soon. Alicorn replacement parts are hard to come by for a zombie.

Why not having part of her body slightly rotten or better, missing (or skeleton if you wish) :trollestia:
