A short trip around the block ended up turning quite a bit different. The Doctor and his three friends find themselves on the threshold of the Crystal Empire, 1000 years ago when still ruled by the evil King Sombra. The Doctor strangely enough does not want to stay and investigate why they are there but before they can escape they are captured and imprisoned by the evil king.

The Doctor's friends, Private Iceland, Dew Doe and Foxy Stripes are separated from him and must face the fearsome tyrant alone, wondering how the Doctor knows him and this land that from their perspective doesn't even exist in their memory. A difficult journey is ahead for all four as they must escape the tyrant and his web of fear and hate.


This story is part of The Equestria Tales series although set in an alternate universe.

From the perspective of some of the characters, only season 1 and parts of season 2 have happened. The crossover tag is on due to the use of elements from Doctor Who.

Cover by Silhouette

Parts of the story edited by Hail King Sombra.

Oh my King, you are so versatile when it comes to where you can suck your power from with your victims! Nice touch with Amber, too. I didn't expect that wouldn't be her! :pinkiegasp:

Wait, this is your first comment on Tyrant?!? What the buck?! I can't believe I've read this far and haven't said anything. This is brilliant, Askre! So intricately woven together. It always keeps me on the edge of my seat. I swear I've cringed with every single character as King Sombra comes into the room. Can wait for the next chapter!

6998614 That is what I love about Sombra, he isn't a one trick pony like some people like to think, people often seem to forget that he draws his powers from two sources, fear and hate, often either forgetting one or the other. Fear and hate don't always go hand in hand and I see Sombra being able to seamlessly slip between using the two without necessarily combining it but can combine it if he wants to.

And yeah you're the first commenter on this story, congratulations. :pinkiehappy:

And indeed it's been quite intentional that King Sombra arriving in the room is a "oh crap" moment for the other characters. He's been playing with them like a cat does with a mouse.

Does Silhouette have a fimfiction.net account?

This was a good chapter, and I am happy that Privet get his big chance with mare tonight even if it is against his will and will probably be considers an involuntary rape for both of them, which will only make him even more awkward with other mares in his life in the future when he is finally free unless he is so ignorant about sex that he doesn't know what to do exactly and would freeze on the the idea of doing it or maybe he is such a traditionalist that she wants to marry first before consummating their act the cardinal desires which would barrow some time for the Doctor to free them before that

It will certainly make things awkward between him and Dew Doe.

unless he is so ignorant about sex that he doesn't know what to do exactly and would freeze on the the idea of doing it or maybe he is such a traditionalist that she wants to marry first before consummating their act the cardinal desires which would barrow some time for the Doctor to free them before that

He is not a traditionalist, but hundreds of mares could line up in front of him and flash him their things and he would ignore them all and only have eyes for Dew Doe :rainbowlaugh: and considering the mare in question was just hoofed over to him and she is just as eager I don't think there will be too much problem,, especially since they are both corrupted and mind-controlled now. That does tend to shut down a lot of previous inhibitions.

Ahhh!!! But, but, but... Foxy?!? *whimper!*:pinkiegasp::flutterrage::raritydespair:

What, you thought only Wiggles feeds on her reader's tears? :trollestia:

7472391 I GUESS NOT, you EVIL CREATURE! So, I already have it in my head if you plan to bring her back how it would go down. At least on my planet, that is.

Okay now I'm actually genuinely curious what idea you have. Shoot me a PM and I can tell you if you are close or not. :pinkiehappy:

This was an interesting ending, despite technically losing the fight Sombra actually wins and the Doctor was out withed buy him. these are one of those cases where I think it was better for the villain to win, all doe I would have probably preferred that he get a total victory over the situation and I still don't see why he let them go like that even if he get foxy supposed total obedience I would automatically think that it is only a matter of time before she get fed up with Sombra before she tries to escape; what does he get more from this then what he all ready had in the situation? I think that a failed safe to guaranty her obedience would have been better, like have a detonator poison, or locator that wherever or whenever her fiends whent he could always kill them in an instant if he wish. I could think that Sombra could sure her as a broodmare that he could raze along with her. It would be an abusive relationship but it would be better then to just have foals razed be nannies, she would provided the them with the love and affection that he is incapable of giving and would die before letting any harm come to them.

I would love to see what will come next? I wander what is different in this outcome if the Crystal Empire is out of the time line and won't automaticly come out in a millennium, but only when sombra wonts to.

I definitely view this as a win for Sombra personally, so yeah that's pretty much true. :pinkiehappy:

and I still don't see why he let them go like that even if he get foxy supposed total obedience I would automatically think that it is only a matter of time before she get fed up with Sombra before she tries to escape; what does he get more from this then what he all ready had in the situation?

Well you see first of all, Foxy appealed to his lust to see the Doctor suffer, managing to convince him that the Doctor would suffer more knowing he couldn't save her.

Second after the Crystal Deal was made, Sombra had no choice. The Crystal Deal Spell is a kind of a "deal with the devil" spell that also affects the Devil. Sombra had agreed to free her friends and in turn she would be all his, that's why Sombra freed everyone in the castle Foxy at the time might consider a friend. That's why the doctor said "he's covering his bases" Sombra was making absolutely sure everyone Foxy had interacted with was gone, which would mean his part of the bargain was done. And no that doesn't mean Foxy can just walk around and say this and that pony is her friend and Sombra is forced to free that pony, it only worked for the specific ponies she already viewed as friends, any friend she made after that wouldn't count.

Sombra explains this spell to Private, telling him that this spell forces him to comply. Sombra has done his end of the deal, Foxy's end was to be his, so she couldn't get "fed up with him" and try to escape. Sombra had honored his part and freed her friends, the crystal deal spell would force Foxy to be compliant.

So Sombra was actually well guranteed that Foxy could do nothing but obey him. :twilightsmile:

There is also that, Foxy is very insecure and fragile when it comes to relationships. Sombra utterly dominated her when he figured out that when it comes to love and relationship, she is really frightened about never having anyone to love.

Also don't let her apparently being in control over herself fool you, even before the Crystal Deal spell, she was still well within Sombra's power, I showed that when all Dew had to say to Private was "remember to obey your king" Private went right back under Sombra's utter mind control, so Sombra would just have to say the right word or phrase and Foxy would be back under total domination.

I could think that Sombra could sure her as a broodmare that he could raze along with her. It would be an abusive relationship but it would be better then to just have foals razed be nannies, she would provided the them with the love and affection that he is incapable of giving and would die before letting any harm come to them.

Well it's not what was highest on Sombra's mind but he would definitely have it in mind that Foxy would produce an heir for him.

I would love to see what will come next? I wander what is different in this outcome if the Crystal Empire is out of the time line and won't automaticly come out in a millennium, but only when sombra wonts to.

Actually this is exactly the same as in the show, I just gave it a different name and this is just yet another version on how that happened. This story is only alternate Universe in the sense that situations leading to many events of the shows were influenced by the Doctor and many of his companions he's had in the past, present and future.

The tradegy was that the characters simply don't know that, for Dew and Private, only the events of the first season and few parts of the second season have currently occurred.

“I got eccentric parents,” the other stallion muttered.

No matter the universe, it seems the parents remain the same.

For those curious I'm Icelandic and I can trace my lineage 1100 years back, (We Icelanders are notorious for keeping track on who married who and who is related to who) so the idea that the Apple family was already around 1000 years ago wasn't a far fetched idea for me.

Okay, do tell me more about this. Over a thousand years? That's nuts!

As I mentioned, we Icelanders were and still are notorious record keepers and even back then always kept pretty good tabs on who was related to who, we took up Christianity around the year 1000 and it's like we just started writing like crazy at that point, this is the country that poured out the Icelandic Sagas, in old norse instead of writing in latin like was far more common back then, so we have records dating pretty far back. It also helps that we are an island nation and our population never exceeded that much, we didn't even go past 200,000 thousand people until the 20th century. (we are about 330,000 now) So thanks in part to small population, crazy drive to just record everything and just a big habit of always knowing who married who, basically has allowed us to keep pretty good records of our ancestors.

Man, y'all got your shit together in Iceland, even if the volcanoes wanna tear y'all apart. Your whole country also has only a few thousand more people than the city I live in; I always imagined it had more folks there but that's actually super astounding.

So.

It’s still really weird to see this Sombra (even in a different timeline) not show any interest in Private.

Indeed, this story was written at the same time of Possession but was basically an abandoned script from the old version of my Pony Pixel comics, and was meant to introduce King Sombra into the comic where he was going to be the big bad of it, that never happened so I wrote this story instead. Plus this King Sombra takes far more after how I wrote him in an RP. I actually toned down the Sombra who appears in the proper Equestria Tales universe.
