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.


With Hearts n Hooves Day approaching in the Crystal Empire, King Sombra is faced with the unpleasant reality that he has been neglecting the affections of his chief consort, Nyx. It makes him realize some things about himself he isn't particularly happy to face.

Please leave a thumbs up or down and let me know in the comments what you like and/or didn't like about The King's Gift. If there is another angle to which you want to see something like this go in the future, let me know that too. I am open to experimenting with new ways to write our King of Shadows as long as they aren't grossly out of character.

My offering to us dirty Sombra plebes for Hearts n Hooves Day 2016. Artwork by the wonderful Pixel_Spark.

UPDATE: 2/21/16 - A sequel is in the works with my collaborator, Tale Weaver. Look for "The King's Problem" coming soon!

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: 5/17/16 - The King's Problem is on the back burner for now but I haven't forgotten about it. PM me if you want me to let you know when it's out, or better yet, follow me here at Hail King Sombra and you will automatically get the blog update with the link AND it will show up in your feed.

YET ANOTHER BLOODY UPDATE: I left a scene out in the final version because it slowed things down and didn't really fit the story going on between Nyx and King Sombra. It is more of a here-is-the-King-being-powerful-and-intimidating-his-enemies so if you like that awesome kind of thing, check it out here in my blog at Deleted Scene from The King's Gift.

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", "Frozen Shadows" and "Sombra of the Sith"! Enjoy!

How sweet those two are.

6939093 Awww...thank you! I jumped ahead in their timeline from where they are in my other story, The Mad Seeress of the North to write it for Hearts n Hooves Day, so I hope that doesn't confuse anyone. Her being a time traveling witch can get a little nuts following her around, lol!

I know the description says "Complete", but I kind of want to see them on their date. Perhaps a part two is in order.

What kind of sick future has befallen upon poor Nyx?

I know shes black but even niggers don't deserve this.

Sarcasm. Please don't take that literal.

7269808 OMG lol :rainbowlaugh:

Awesome icon, btw. We LOVE Samurai Jack in our house! Personally I think Aku and Sombra are related - they both are shadowy bastards, aren't they?

What kind of sick future has befallen upon poor Nyx?

You're right, but life around Sombra is rarely fair. Heh, she's just black with a grey mane 'cause it's the polar opposite color scheme of Sombra and I thought it'd turn him on :raritystarry:

I know shes black but even niggers don't deserve this.

And no offense taken (by me at least). I'm very laid-back unless attacked directly. Then I attack right back. I'm a bitch when backed into a corner, much like Nyx if she's in control, which in this story, she isn't when it comes to seeing her love being attacked by Nightmare Moon!

Now that I think about it, Sombra's dark crystals look an awfully like that strange black mass Aku builds his structures out of. And they both have something radiating from their eyes. Sombra's mist and Aku's GREEEEEAAAT FLAMING EYEBROWS


This really ought to be rated T for some of the things in it.
