Hello Everypony. Sapphire here. Veteran Brony, long-time Flutterlover, and future published author.



This story is a sequel to The Needs Of The Many

Having recently been married, me and my newly wedded wife travel to Equestria where we're both welcomed warmly. But it's not all rainbows and butterflies with my return as my pony friends' souls start separating from their bodies not long after our arrival. With their souls housed in my mind and the other princesses attending to business in The Crystal Empire, I set off on the long trek north to get help from them with fixing this dilemma. But an ancient and familiar evil threatens to corrupt me during my journey. Will I make it in time or succumb to the darkness, dooming my friends in the process?

Sex tag for some romance, innuendo, and suggestive situations. Gore tag for some blood.

Part II in the "Guardian Of Equestria" saga.

Note: As a sequel, there'll be several elements from The Needs Of The Many that pop up in Host Of Souls. It's vital that you read the former first. Also potential spoilers in the comments section.

This is interesting. When is the next chapter coming?

5590094 About a month or 2 from now. I had just finished this chapter 2 days ago and I typically only write 1 day out of the week so as not to overdo it so it'll take some time to write it out and edit it.

5591158 Alright. It is not good to rush things

5592045 We don't want to make stories like Dead Light

5592401 Oh have you checked out my latest blog? You might find it very interesting

5592855 You mean the one with Pinkie Pie's Invitation Song with the Beetlejuice NES music? Yeah I saw it.

5593101 Yes that blog. What do you think about those videos?

5593115 I only played the first one but found the comparison of the 2 songs to be very interesting.

5593128 Watch the other two videos especially the one with Daring and Trixie because I help make that video and the ending is awesome

For a second I thought of World of Warcraft.

5593805 The animation Daring Hooves made at the end of his review is funny. And thanks to AVGN's review, now we know that there is an alternative way to movie clouds without pegasi. Have a skeleton to shoot a fireball at a beehive

5594122 Yup. Way more logical. Who needs Pegasi when we've got skeletons shooting fireballs at beehives? Idiot. :facehoof:

5595264 There's a boss called the "Devourer of Souls" and when you attack him he says "You dare look upon the Host of Souls?!?!"

5595287 O.K. My uncle is more familiar with those games than I am. He used to play them practically nonstop.

5595306 Indeed? Yet now you know of the HOST OF SOULS!!!

5595270 Somebody should make a fanfic about that

5595972 OMG. :rainbowlaugh: I would read the :yay: out of that. That would be hilarious.

5596074 The story will Rainbow Dash and the other pegasi unable to movie clouds for some reason, maybe a sickness. Then Twilight finds an alternate way to move until the pegasi are well again and it is for Twilight turn into a skeleton and shoot a fireball at a beehive. But in order to make the spell to make herself into skeleton, she must stomp on bugs and make potion out of them

5596107 OMG. Soo much LOLZ right now. Would it be a Beetlejuice crossover?

5596114 Maybe. Discord is very similar to Beetlejuice

5596133 Oh! That is perfect. I don't know why I didn't think of that before.

5596175 Have you watched Beetlejuice The Animated Series?

5596177 No. Want to though. Didn't know there was an animated Beetlejuice series until about a year after I first saw the movie in college. Do you know if it's available on Netflix?

5596188 I am not sure. But the voices actresses of Princess Twilight Sparkle and Rarity are in the show. I think that MLP FIM was partly inspired by Beetlejuice The Animated Series

5596206 :pinkiegasp: Tara Strong and Tabitha St. Germain were on Beetlejuice?!? Oh :yay: yeah I wanna watch it now even more than previously!

5596223 I just keep on finding more and more stuff that Tara Strong has done voice work for and I'm continuously amazed with how vast her line of work is.

5596233 She has been around since the 1980s

5596285 The Netherworld from Beetlejuice The Animated Series looks just like Ponyville when Discord controlled it

5597125 I could see that. I just rewatched The Return Of Harmony last week and it does look like it would fit well in the world of Beetlejuice.

5597719 I thought that thing looked familiar. I just never would've remembered the sandworms.

5597727 Check out the intros of the show

5597789 Nice. I've only ever seen clips of both of the intros. Mostly from the Nostalgia Critic's Top 11 Mindfucks list.

5597814 Check out these two videos

5597844 Wow. Those were cool. I especially liked the dubbing both with Lydia's voice for Fluttershy and Beetlejuice's voice for Discord. It just fits soo perfectly with their whole relationship. Plus bonus points to the second one for giving Flutters the crazed glowing red eyes during the second half of the incantation. I saw that and I was like "Holy Shit!!!!"

5597958 Indeed it is funny. Oh check out this review of the show

5676121 Thanks. I was really kind of nervous as I struggled with writing it. After a period of doing everything I thought I could for it, I just had to let it go and publish it. I'm still not sure it's my strongest chapter/work. Hopefully next chapter will be better.

5676174 Your welcome. I am sure you will do a good job on the next chapter
