I'm a science-fiction and fantasy buff, creator of the Chakat Universe, and now dabbling in the MLP:FiM universe. I love a good story!


This story is a sequel to A Different Perspective

Both the House of Path and Herd Path enjoy strong growth in the years following their establishment. Like all such things though, they both have their highlights and lowlights. These are vignettes in the lives of the children of Twilight, Path, Free, & Roseclaw, from foals to young adults.

This is a series of stand-alone stories of events that occur after the events of A Different Perspective, which I strongly recommend that you read first.
My collaborator, AlaskaIsCold, has written some of these and I mostly just edited them.

Chapters (21)

Immediate upvote, track, and favorite, and I haven't even read it yet!

Good author, good story. :twilightsmile:

Same for me, on all counts. I really wanted to see more of these characters.

Edit: No regrets. I really liked it.

A very good little story!

Luna really does need a family to rally around her, I am glad that House Path is doing so.

"fun has truly been doubled!”

We need a Luna emoticon, badly. :pinkiehappy:

The "not in the books' moment :rainbowlaugh:
Poor Twilight, faceing once again that somethings just can't be prepared for in a library.
Would Twilight be the type to write a research project on parenting? :rainbowderp:

Oh, Bluestreak :ajsmug:
I know somebody who gets drunk the way Blue does, he just doesn't have a dragoness to fly him to bed.
Heh, a dragoness in the little mad house that is House Path. Who'll be next? :ajsmug:

Will we see more of Golden Cinder? I like her already. :twilightsmile:
Aand, I'm really curious as to how she and Bluestreak ended on the same ship. :derpytongue2:
Good he got scolded for comming home drunk, and not for his excuse to be drunk, that would just have been double morale. :moustache:

If I may come with a tiny nitpick: sometimes repeat information sneaks its way into your dialogue and describtions. :trixieshiftleft:
Just something to consider. :twilightsmile:

I'll be keeping an eye on this, it's a nice and cozy kind of story. :ajsmug:

I don't think you would have to change anything. Look at the differences in the children of large families. Whether or not Cadance has an Alicorn foal or not has nothing to do with what Twilight has, perhaps Twilight just won the gene lottery before Cadance.

This chapter... hnnnngh...

*WolfishLOL as I give you a Formal Wolf Bow* Well Done My Friend!!!! just enough chills and laughs to make me grin.

Being a Changeling on this night is so unfair, I mean, we get the best costumes, for free! Look at zombie Free there! Living..err, nonliving proof! Great read too, love the fact that Free Agent hams up any acting he does.


Will we see more of Golden Cinder? I like her already. :twilightsmile:
And, I'm really curious as to how she and Bluestreak ended on the same ship.

Yes, Cinder isn't just a cameo character. You'll learn more about her in further stories.

woo! new story ^^ is so excited that I already faved it before reading!

for those who haven't read A Different Perspective this is a SPOILER ALERT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED DON'T LOOK! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Waaaaait a minute didn't Warfist DIE in the blue changeling hoard battle?!
OH DEAR! Luna you know not what you have unleashed!
the pictures are always such a treat GoldFur and they really add to the story
and to Alaskaiscold i can honestly say it was EXTREMELY hard to tell who was writing, you or GoldFur and that is saying something as GoldFur is REALLY up there on my list a amazing writers


didn't warfist DIE in the blue changeling hoard battle?!


6584888 THEN WHAT IS THIS LINE His ferocity was without equal. His loyalty was beyond question. To die on the battlefield was the way he wanted to go. Were you able to determine what ultimately ended him?”

Path replied, “He was quite the warrior. Warfist told me that he cleaved over four hundred drones before they finally took him. The Chrome Queen said that he caused waves of fear to roll through the swarm’s mind. As he cleaved soldier after soldier in twain, his war screech was heard over five blocks away. I have been unable to find out the details of the blow that struck him down, however, even as he succumbed, he managed to take out his attacker


The King raised an eyebrow as Path opened up the large bag that he had carried in, and the earth pony placed what looked like a large changeling skull onto the table between them. It was cleaned perfectly so the king could see the fine detail, but what really made his eyes widen was the expertly crafted war ax that was buried halfway into it. Looking along the haft, he saw his royal emblem.

“Is this…?”

Path nodded. “His final kill. As he was struck, he brought his ax down and took out the one that felled him. He struck it so hard that the ax wedged into its skull and we could not remove it without destroying the skull.”

Cool story but I'm a bit confused on whose kids belong to which parents. I understand that the kids are all siblings.

6584962 read beget a new beginning but a friendly heads up it is NSFW

6584935 Path is talking about the king's son, and only mentioned Warfist's report on what that griff had achieved before the son was killed, not Warfist.

6585038 ohhhh okay thanks for clearing that up for me. and i have to say GoldFur you picked a mighty fine writer to fill for you while you rest up as i stated before it was hard to distinguish between you and Alaskaiscold when reading this and well you know from my pm of admiration how high you rank to me as a writer

6584935 They were talking about the Griffon King's Son.. check yer second paragraph, 'Warfist told me' ... kinda hard to tell someone how many kills ya had if yer dead :P

6585065 yeah i know GoldFur told me in my mind i thought the it was a simple typo and it was warfist who did all the slaughtering of over 400 brain dead blue changelings


i have to say GoldFur you picked a mighty fine writer to fill for you while you rest up as i stated before it was hard to distinguish between you and Alaskaiscold when reading this

That would be because this one was written by me. The next one to be added will be his though.

Just read this and already you've woveN a delightful little story, I'm curious how many chapters you intend for this. Alsi, on a side note, will you be picking up your other story soon?

The last alicorn?

6585210 We obviously have to see how good Luna is at babysitting. That should be the second next story. There are all sorts of things this family can get up to in these years which hopefully will make interesting reading.

One of these days I will get back to "Twilight of the Alicorns", but I'm not sure when. Too much on my plate at the moment.

VERy interesting sequel I look forward to seeing more chapters

‘Their children are wonderful, so how hard can it be?’

You had to said that...
I'll need some popcorn for next chapter :rainbowlaugh:

Yay more House Path stuff! Glad to see you started on a new series, Goldie!

Also, I assume that Cadence is going to give birth to a little Alicorn, seeing as she is one and I would assume genetics, not to mention magic, would prove that the dominant form in such matters.

Oh, one more thing: I DEMAND we see a chapter that goes back to show us what happened when Twilight brought her parents, Cadence, Shining Armor, AND Princess Celestia together to tell them that not ONLY is she pregnant, but she's ALSO pregnant from LONG PATH!

Eeeeee, the idea of their shocked expressions and various questions fills me with delight!

Remember that this story is set years later than where the show is. Twilight's niece/nephew was born some time ago.


Working on that right now.

Or will the writers and Hasbro somehow surprise us? I might have to adjust my tale accordingly.

inb4 Cadence gives birth to Ahuizotl.

I'd like to see Luna invited to join Herd Path!!!!!! just think what the wedding night would be like!!!! *WolfishLOL*

6588321 Yay! I can only imagine the brain breakage that poor Twilight Velvet and Night Light will deal with from such an unusual relationship those four have!

Oh noez, Luna, IT'S A TRAP! Wave off! Wave off! Nooooo, you're going to learn the horrible truth that foalsitting is a really hard job! :derpyderp2:

Makes me wonder what sort of tests the other children are facing.

Not a bad job at all for a first go-round. Kudos to AlaskaIsCold. While it did feel a wee bit rushed, it wasn't bad, and is definitely something that can/will smooth out with continued writing.

Hehehe, very very cute!

Not too much embellishment, but that's not a bad thing.
Fifteen year jump huh? Well, there's still fun to be had! After all, the mane six were only like nineteen, right?
Keep going! ;)

You seem to forget that we've been warned that these stories will not come in Chronological order, just that they will take place somewhere after "A different perspective."
For all we know the next one could be Discord and Flix's first inevitable coop prank. :pinkiesmile:

On a different note, Path sure as Tartarus has a lot of trust in his daughter's capability. :derpytongue2:
Also, quite handy knowing most of the handful of individuals on Equss who can teleport you around the globe. :ajsmug:

6614463 Ah, forgot it's not in chronological order. No biggie!

i stand by what i said before in the last chapter your writing is second only to GoldFur. you hear me Alaskaiscold you make GoldFur proud.

We need picture. Path. Bald. Now.

I figured it was Chrysalis fairly early on, only she would view the current situation with contempt, though what else is she planning I wonder...

*WolfGrin* I knew back when the body disappeared that she was still around....

Hehehe....so Chryssy is still alive (as expected). I like what she did. At first I thought she was about to do something really sinister like possessing the poor child, but I think what she did was cool. "I could have done you serious harm, but didn't. This time. And oh, by the way, I'm still very much alive". Love it!

6632386 Yeah not too thrilled to where she is going with this. I thought the reason she did everything was to leave a mark since she was unable to produce a living heir. Glossamer just proved she does have one so why continue?

6633029 Because she cracked mentally, and no longer cares about the consequences of her actions.

Well then... that curious and yes it dose explain the missing "corpse". Well it cant be called a corpse now tho.
Also I want to know WHAT IS IN THE BOX!!!

6633029 i have to agree i feel that this is a little bit forced as i feel that chrysalis's role in the story is over and that should make way for other foes or problems to be faced in the future. now i am not trying to be too harsh on this chapter. i am just trying to give health criticism
