I have no heart and my avatar makes everything sound sexual. Also, It's pronounced "sam-ee".


Set in the same continuity as A Kingdom Divided, about nine years before its events.

Badlands. The deserted land, home of changelings and many more, even worse creatures. Ponies rarely wander there, except of a small group of volunteers, protecting Equestria from incoming changeling swarms. For long, their job was enough to accomplish that. But now, they have to go to the very heart of the infestation.

The Nest.

Ahh, this really takes me back to when I used to study ants. Terrifying creatures, really. And yeah, it seems like nobody ever uses the term "drone" correctly anymore. I'm proud to say that, upon reading that there were conical holes in the sand, antlions were the first thing I thought of. Also terrifying creatures, in their own right.

Pretty cool story so far. Reminds me of Starship Troopers in a few ways—mostly the movie, but also the book. I loved all the little details about the world and such.

she started do shiver

It should read "she started to shiver". Other than that, great chapter. Nice to see this updated again! :twilightsmile:

Thanks! It's fixed now.

4745780 No problem. It's great helping others, and I eagerly await the next chapter!

Well, this arc is completed, but it's continued in A Kingdom Divided (it ties with the chapter 12). Also, I'm planning to make a side story one day, presenting AKD events from Spitfire's perspective (this story has not enough Spitfire...)

4745799 Oops. Should have noticed that. :twilightblush:
Anyway, I'll be sure to check out that story of yours. :twilightsmile:

4745799 Nice quote, I got it. Fear is the mind killer.

Yeah... I was just reading Dune while writing the second chapter and I thought that it'd be fitting.

4745799 I think I'd read it. I agree not enough Spitfire.:moustache:

A most excellent story.

Funny how you managed to make the talk about dash, the wonderbolts and nightmare moon actually sound imposible and giving a better reason to Chrisallis
