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.


An innocent question about a reference from a newspaper Sombra's consort Nyx pulls back from the future turns into a quest for the King of Shadows to teach the Sith how to properly run a universe of slaves. He has the experience, after all. Unfortunately he just doesn't understand that movies aren't real and what Nyx hopes will be a romantic date out turns into a nightmare in Appleoosa!

Inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Aaaand trouble in three...two...UH-OH. XD

Oh, no. The King is a fanboy, errr, I mean fancolt. So he wants to take a working light saber to a movie theater. What could possibly go wrong? Will Iron Blade be forced to change his name to Light Blade? Will Nyx nix movie night entirely? Can't wait for this story to be made into a movie. I bet I'll laugh, I'll cry, I'll kiss three bits goodbye.

Do your other mentioned stories take place in the same universe?

7159969 Hi Starlight. Thanks for asking! Yes, they do except, for Times Neverwhen - Two Sides to Every Heart. That is an alternate reality story.

They've been jumping around in the order of their proper timeline for various reasons (inspiration, wanted to post a new story each month, insanity, etc.). So far the timeline for The King Sombra Chronicles goes something like this:

1. Dark Crystal Fires - Child of Shadows
2. The Mad Seeress of the North
3. The King's Gift
4. The King's Mice
5. Sombra of the Sith
6. Frozen Shadows

It's actually hard for me to pin down exactly which of The King's Gift and The King's Mice comes first at this point, but as I finish up The King's Mice, it might become more clear.

Mad Seeress isn't even halfway through that story arc, either. There is so much more planned there to give my readers - possibly about 10 more chapters if what I rattled off to my Brony husband the other night holds true. And I've got loads more stories than these ones planned out for this universe :pinkiehappy:

Well, if Nyx camouflaged the carriage to look western, maybe Sombra will understand special effects in the movies. But how is he going to react when he speaks to the Sith on screen and they don't even acknowledge him. This could be a disaster. Good think Byx brought bail bribe money.

Good job I can see Sombra as a Count Duku type figure or Councler Palpaine.

Give it up Brae, you're not getting away~! XD

He's a cutie pie, can't blame Nyx...:trollestia:

(I realised to my mortification that I've been neglecting to leave comments after I read, I has the brainfarts.)

Never mind being three sheets to the wind, this sounds like the whole laundry basket! XD

I like the funnies!

And another story updated. This one can go two ways - the way I had originally intended, which is to be short and funny

i'm tempted to make a penis joke about that.

but please do long and funny
