Good intentions always seem to go awry. In the search for the more destructive of our race, the few of us who live peacefully in Equestria's borders must bear the heaviest burden. Cast from the town I once loved, and my family destroyed, I seek my revenge on those who took them from me. By the power of my blood, sweat and tears, and with plenty of luck, I plan on watching Canterlot burn.

I am Amethyst and I am a changeling.

Angst. Angsty, angsty angst. :flutterrage:
I like where you're taking this story so far, and I think your writing style is pretty good, too.
You have a few punctuation errors here and there, but there's nothing too major.
You might, however, want to use more description and adjectives in the story. It really gives the story some personality and structure.
Also, try to find a good cover image. Hopefully not an overused one, although that may be hard since this fic involves changelings.:twilightsmile:

Thanks.

Reading it over again today, I do see what you mean by the description. I've actually been trying to find a cover image of a changeling, one with purple eyes that does not look too feminine, but I have been having trouble with it. Might have to make one myself.

Edit: Couldn't see one at the moment, so I quickly put one together until I can A) Make a better one or B) Find one

This is going to be good man.

so far im already HOOKED! love where this is going. cant wait to read more. great job:yay::yay::twilightsmile:

Go easy on pointing out grammar for the moment. Wanted to get this chapter up tonight, but I was a little tired when editing it. I'll look over it tomorrow with a fresh head.

Pretty good foundation for the story so far. I kind of want the next chapter to have some action.

P.S. 2000+ words in 4 days? Get some sleep, man. :P

This is awesome. I shall wait for more of this thrilling tale!

This is awesome!
Also somewhat ironic since i was listening to this song at the same time as reading it.

this is one of the best changeling stories iv ever read. and iv read ALLOT!! great job. cant wait for more.:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Tip:

For some sections, short sentences have more punch. E.g.:

Why did Queen Chrysalis attack Canterlot if this is the case? Simple, power.

Can become:


Why did Queen Chrysalis attack Canterlot if this is the case?

Simple.

Power.

Now... time for MURDER! :pinkiehappy:

Going through exams at the moment. Have a chapter just about ready though now.

"What did it say when a carpet was as comfortable as a bed?" It says you are awesome! Most people only want to sleep on the bed. Me, I can sleep anywhere, floor, couch, chair, under the bed. Means your not picky and... high strung? I liking this changeling more and more! :pinkiehappy:

He can never catch a break.

Amethyst is best po- er, Changeling. :moustache:

I'm not going to lie, but I think this wasn't my best chapter. I went through a number of revisions before finally settling on something I felt good with. Call it writer's block, or just the stress of exams. That being said, the next chapter is coming together far better than this one did at the start.

Also, thanks again N00813 for pointing out the errors. I'm going to have to get you on as a pre-reader pretty soon.

I love this story

Any idea when the next chapter should be up? (as a guess, I'd probably say the middle of the week....but you'd know better than me.:twilightsheepish:)

Probably Wednesday evening or Thursday morning.

Oh, this is my second favorite changeling fic!

BOOYA! I've been camping out at my computer all day for this! I was not dissappointed! Though I am curious as to Amethyst's plan of action concerning the ponies outside the gates. But I guess I'll have to wait and see!

please post more:applecry:

Stay classy Blueblood.:unsuresweetie:

"Crystal Ocean tried maintain his dignity despite his burning face"

"but its who I am"

"drawing a embarrassed blush"

"I wasn’t being entirely truthfully"

"said a white unicorns in a cultured tone"

"Celestia chose to ignore her nephew outburst"

"his selfish outbursts"
you've used outburst twice in that sentence - 'tendencies' may be a better word here

And now for my next trick, I shall fall face first onto my bed and be asleep before I land.:ajsleepy:

Once again, thanks to N00813 for pointing out my mistakes.

Hmmm....Did I Really get the first view? Because that's what it says.....

Yeesh, Either I'm spending too much timeon this site...or this story is just that good.

I'm liking this! Also like the guards relationship and the using the changeling princess, wonder where you plan on taking that? So continue!..... In the morning! I shall wait for the next chapter no matter how long it takes! As long as it's good it's worth the wait!

"anwsered Celestia"

"from her amendments,."
at the end, there are 2 punctuation marks

Took a bit longer than I had planned to get this chapter out, in part because halfway through it I went back to re-write it. Other than that, life in general and my job made it difficult to find the time.

Now for a cool little tidbit. Ocean Wind's colours came from this famous painting
