Hail King Sombra


We are all just stories in the end. Official scribe to his Royal Highness King Sombra of the Crystal Empire. His tales are as varied as they are poignant, sad and bittersweet. Remember them well.

Every side - both good and evil - have their champions and their supporters. Do not presume NO ONE in the Crystal Empire was on King Sombra’s side when he returned to reclaim the Crystal Heart and his throne.

The Times Neverwhen series explores “what ifs” - those alternate realities that exist side-by-side with the world of Equestria we are all familiar with. It may share similarities with the series “Dark Crystal Fires - The Chronicles of King Sombra”, but it does not share the same reality with it or any others currently in my worlds.

Loosely based on the story arc: Fiendship is Magic, but with a little twist!

We love comments and upvotes. They tell us what you want to see more of when lauding our King of Shadows as we do more writing and world building! Please be sure to check out his other tales. We also encourage you to stalk (watch) us and follow our blog for updates to this and our other currently ongoing stories "The Mad Seeress of the North", "Sombra of the Sith" and "The King's Mice"! Enjoy!

This is really good I like it. I also love how you have the whole romance of King Sombra.

Thank you so much, Passing! I am so glad you've chosen to follow my King and I through his adventures. I was in a magical space m'self when I wrote that, feeling the strength of the relationship and position he holds with his own people, the Umbrum. That did most of the writing for me. I was merely holding the figurative pen as its inspiration brought for the words.

More romance will be had, rest assured. It is a rocky relationship Nyx, my later ego, and he started on, but it is the beauty of the passion he held (and still holds) for Princess Luna that is a sweeping tale that brings one to tears, along with his downfall and its reasons.

If you liked the story that much, please consider giving it a thumbs up so others can be emboldened to enjoy it as well. It is just a tiny favor I ask and it makes His highness feel quite pleased with Himself when He sees others are finding merits in His adventures.

P.S. - I ADORE Vinyl scratch too! Her and Octavia's scene in the 100th episode - BEST PART OF THE EPISODE!

Wow! As you said, two sides to every story. I almost feel sorry for King Sombra and I do for Sceadwian. From their point of view, the Royal Sisters are the villains. Please, do continue with the King's adventures.

This was a little confusing to follow-Hope wasn't mentioned until the last line and I'm sure there was some other comic universe lore that escaped me. Oops. I do remember reading the comic version of Sombra's backstory out of curiosity (and, I think, boredom) weren't there talking crystals involved?? :rainbowhuh: And due to the small word count, I don't think you need an adventure tag although a Tragedy one would work very well.

Sorry for the confusion, IceStar. Yeah, I intentionally put Hope's name last so it'd be a shock to those who were familiar with the comic. It was my own headcannon about Radiant Hope in an alternate future where she's joined Sombra and he'd turned her into an Umbrum (a shadow pony, like him) and his people were freed from their prison. I wrote it before the Seige of the Crystal Empire had actually freed them. It was kind of driven by the thought that one pony's tyrant is another's savior.

weren't there talking crystals involved?

Yeah, but I don't believe in talking crystals, so I ignored that part :rainbowlaugh:

Wow, were you reading my mind? I was thinking that last week as well and forgot to do something about it. I'm putting it back on my list of a bazillion and one things to get to. (That list is actually getting knocked down, but things keep getting piled on top of it, heh!)

Thanks for the feedback. You are AWESOME!

You are quite welcome. *tips suspiciously Sombra-esque crown*

Such a good job you have done!
