Immortals should never fall in love... at least, that's what Celestia tells herself. The young princess has recently become the ruler of Equestria, and romance is the last thing on her mind. Until she meets a certain Prench unicorn, that is. But despite a zebra invasion, courtly politics, and the pressure of leading a fractured and divided nation, Celestia will find that the greatest battle she will ever face is a mere question.

How does one bear the cost of a love that lasts forever, but a lover who does not?

Sequel/Prequel to Her Knight in Faded Armor. Reading that story is not at all needed, and they can be read at the same time or without one another. However, it is encouraged, as they share the same canon.

Well, this is a fresh new take on a concept that suffers from bad implementations.

I can't wait for the next update!

It's thanks to fanfiction that Celly has a fanbase. And I know you'll make every Celestia fan proud! Now boarding: The Hype Train!

The inner Trigger in me is so happy to see this gritty tragedy come to fruition. Kick its plot, Docc!

YOU MISSPELLED MY NAME YOU (can't think of something that would be funny here)

Zebras invading, eh?

I guess the megaspells won't be far behind. :trollestia:

"Netflix and chill?"

Seems promising so far. Let's see how this goes.

You're are aware that you can say a story is a prequel, yes?

Wow, Paix seems like one interesting dude.

It's good to finally read this. This should be a good story.

so we are doing the side story thing? that is okay... I accept this.

Only 44 likes!? This is madness!

I want to like this, but it feels too... modern. In HKiFA Button always talks about this time period as one of knights and chivalry and all the other medieval stuff, but so far you could swap out the setting for 'modern' Equestria and absolutely nothing would change. I understand that you're probably just writing what you're familiar with, but I can't say I'm not disappointed after how Button described it.

When I saw that you were writing a story about Equestria 1000 years ago I was genuinely excited because we'd get to see an Equestria that's familiar but at the same time completely different, but after seeing how this apparently isn't the case I have to say that it's lowered my expectations for the rest of the story somewhat.

I get what you're saying, but I'd like to encourage you to reserve judgement on that part until you get to see a bigger slice of the universe. So far, all you've been able to see is Celestia, one guard, and a team of conponies and criminals. Not exactly a great sample size. :raritywink: The differences between old Equestria and modern Equestira will be much more noticeable once the world building comes into play.

I have to somewhat concur with Macharius... While the existance of banks is old enough that it itself is not a problem, the set-up sounds WAAAY to much like a modern bank, which is perhaps only two to three hundred years old. There is also a little bit of latitude in having nations established that far back... But Germany, for instance, is relatively modern, only going back a couple of hundred years. I think this latter would be much less obvious, though, if not for the bank set-up, which just doesn't sound nearly ancient enough.

A slight adjustment of phrasology involved (and perhaps a little look into what a Medieval bank would have operated (a quick wiki would do)) would go a long way to get the "feel" right.

Interesting start.
So, Paix goes from a thief to Celestia's husband... that will definitely be a good story to tell! :pinkiehappy:

Today! (or yesterday, depends when you gonna read it) marks the ANNIVERSARY on publishing the first chapter! Congratulations! :pinkiehappy: :heart::yay:

..Ok, sorry for the kappa.
Seriously - no matter how it sounds - I'm a bit concerned about you. You didn't post a chapter on anything in a few months, your last blog appeared in may. Can I ask if there is something bothering you, or you've reached a writer's block, or life got in a way too much?
As an avid fan of Her Knight in Faded Armor, I cannot wait for more chapters to come out. Heck, you've been writing a lot like you promised in a last few blogs... up until august.

Sooo... If you wanna just take a break that's OK, but if there's something unpleasant you need to get out of your system, I'm willing to listen.
Not gonna use emoticons for showing feelings tho, that shit's not my style.

...Yea, quite wrong place to write something like that. I swear I did it here just for the coincidence :twilightblush:

Lots of stuff has happened, but I'm slowly getting back into the swing of it all. Hoping to update things again starting soon.

7591448 I'm rooting for you to get back on the smooth track.
