Garuda IV

Easy-going brony trying his hand at writing.


Sol was a stallion living a secret life, but after an incident involving his father's side of the family, he was hidden away and sealed within a crystal. That was over one thousand years ago, and has since then remained dormant, waiting to be awakened to aid Equestria in a time of dire need, or when it's finally safe enough for him to return. At least, that's how it was supposed to go.

Having been accidentally awoken, Sol must now adjust to the present world, cope with what he's lost with time, sort out his growing feelings for another pony, and eventually, accept his position in this modern-day Equestria. However, even after a thousand years, some grudges aren't so easily forgotten.

And so a new story begins.... one that may reveal who the pony in the crystal is.... and how he came to be sealed...

An interesting start. I'd really want to know what happens next, and something tells me that Celestia actually has a very good reason to not speak about Sol.

By the way, is this story TwiOC or is it TiaOC?

Twilight's eyes burned with fury. "Who in the name of Celestia would write in a book?!"

Um, Twilight, I think that's the point of a book. Also, where's Dark? Is this, like, a parallel dimension or something? Also, GREAT start, and I can't wait until the next chapter!

8024403 It's not a sequel to Of Flame and Shadow

8024425 Well, it isn't a direct sequel. But, this story IS closely tied into the next sequel, if you read the epilogue of 'Of Flame and Shadow'.. saying, "He won't fight alone".

Of Flame and Shadow determines one halve of the two, being the biography... or autobiography, of Dark.
Of Heaven and Earth determines the other half, being the biography or story of Sol.. and his buildup.
(P.S. I bet the next story title in the series will be titled 'Of Everything and Nothing' or something like that)

HA take that I've made your follower count uneven now. Oh, I am evil...

Also great story

I'm really looking forward to this story. Keep it up.

I am intrigued, confused and bucking excited for the next chapter! :pinkiehappy: Keep up the good work!

8024301 Had to happen sooner or later.

8024397 Sorry, but no spoilers. You'll just have to wait and find out.:trollestia:

8024739 You are partially right. At the end of Of Flame and Shadow, it's mentioned that there are two others; one sealed in a crystal underground, and another chilling at the bottom of a pool.

8025972 I seem to have missed that :facehoof:
Wait.. but then, am I right about the next story title? Lol

LOVED IT IT IT IIIIIIT!!!!!! PINIKIS PIE WILLL YOU SHUT UP!!!!!!. Okay that was so much fun. One question. Can you darn hurry up WITH THE NEXT ONE?????!!!!!!!!!


I have two simple letters for you: F U l. Figure out there message.

8032009 What is it?!?!? I guess we'll never know... for a long time.. .-.
Or maybe a few hours, a day, possibly a week if he is really busy i mean i dunno :moustache:

Damn teasing bastard. Get why but don't mean i gotta like it. :twilightangry2:

*$%&ing #*(%^#^$ stupid *(&@#Q$& (^^$#&(&$#ed ^&(^($^& *(#^&*( Cliffhanger!!!

I've actually got the next chapter all ready for release. I'm trying to pace the chapters out, but depending on my mood, I might release it as early as tomorrow.

Until then...:trollestia:

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahhahah XD!!!!:rainbowlaugh:


For each cliff hanging Saruman there'll be a Legolas :ajbemused:

I need more rum for cliffhangers like that:moustache:

I bet this is why Shining hated Kirins in "Of Flame and Shadow." Something happened with this one, and that's why he hates/hated them...

Right, Garuda?

8040675 Nah, seems to be a different iteration of Equestria than in Of Flames and Shadows.

Also, interesting, in this iteration, all of the Scaleless have been sealed in stone, and put inside of this... Emergency shelter ? By the going of the golems, it seem it's was the primary function of this location... But why are they sealed, with this Sol imprisoned in his crystal ? Are they imprisoned, or dis they willingly got sealed in stone, for X reasons ? Well, let's wait the next chapters for answers...

"Jeeze! It's like standing too close to a flame that's burning hotter than the sun in the middle of July down here,"
"I Burn" reference, nice.:ajsmug:

This is getting more and more interesting...

8040760 You'd be right that it's different from Of Flame and Shadow. As for why they're sealed in stone, you'll just have to wait for the next chapter to find out.

8041570 Favorite song from RWBY. Also really looking forward to the next season whenever it comes out.

Shits about to pick up!!! Rubs hooves maniacally.:pinkiecrazy::moustache:

Wow....poor S.D.'s....the mother line was funny and the chapter was overall pretty good man.

Great chapter! Very exiting! I have a feeling that this story is going to be a lot shorter than Of Flame and Shadow, though, chapter wise.

So since Fissure is the father, that means if they were to find a method to free the Scaleless Dragons, they could safely test it on him, since even if he died, Sol would be around to cover his job just like the Foal inside Twilight was for Dark. But that means they have only 1 shot at finding a cure that would absolutely work. Any others after that would be too Risky.

I was actually a little right. Somehow I felt that Celestia was Sol's mother, though I couldn't predict that it was through adoption. And now it is clear that this will be you second OCTwi story with a Kirin to boot... And I don't mind it at all!:pinkiehappy:

I wonder, how Sol will react to all the changes in Equestria? The fact that Discord was reformed and living among the ponies, or the story about Luna turning into Nightmare Moon, not to mention the still present threat of Chrysalis.

Anyway, I really can't wait for the next chapter!

His eyes narrowed into a glare. "I came down here and was sealed away just before Discord started spreading his chaos across Equestria."

A sense of fear took hold of Sol. "Is Discord still on his rampage?!"

How does he know what happened just after he was sealed away, but doesn't know that discord has been stopped?

Still, really good chapter, can't wait to read more!

Did somepony say Adventure. Cue music.

replace Jake the dog & Finn the human with Twilight & Friends

covered in preserving ruins

Ruins are broken down buildings, Runes are mystical symbols.

Is the cover art relevant to the story in any way?

8058864 good chapter man. Can't wait for next one.

8058866 8058879 It is, but it won't be revealed why for a while. Still too early into the story yet.

8032157 "And look at the runes on this wall here," Starlight pointed out. "I've never seen these type of runes before."

Looking forward for more glad I fav'd this story

Poor Sol. I wonder how Celestia and Luna are going to react?
