A high fantasy reimagining of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Long ago, the cruel God of Chaos Discord ruled over the world. The other Gods overthrew him and sealed him in the deepest Hell of the prison Tartarus, then waged war for his empty throne. The Goddess of the Sun Celestia emerged victorious, then sealed six more dark Gods in six more Hells of Tartarus. The remaining Gods ruled over the world's lands under Celestia, and as High Princess her reign brought an age of peace.

A thousand years after Celestia's defeat of Nightmare Moon, the Goddess of the Night, the mortal peoples hold the festival of the Summer Sun Celebration to commemorate her victory. However, on the eve of the Celebration a mysterious organization releases Nightmare Moon from her prison. In response, Celestia tasks her young apprentice, the sorceress Twilight Sparkle, with preventing the unsealing of any more dark Gods. With the aid of her own apprentice and her five strange new friends, Twilight begins her mission to put an end to the return of the seven Sealed Gods- especially Discord, the dreaded Lord of Chaos.

This is amazing I am already mind blown! :twilightsmile: It's give MLP much more depth. Now this is what I call gold writing. :ajsmug: Can't wait to see more.

This story seems interesting. I have to admit, the Fluttershy in that cover pic terrifies me

Uhm, a nice reinterpretation... I want to see more.

7255026 :pinkiegasp: We can't tell you that yet; it would ruin the surprise! :pinkiehappy:

Why is a comment Removed From Your To Me?

7255732 She accidentally posted a nonsense comment. We're sorry about that. :twilightblush:

Sorry if this sounds stupid but what's a
Shangri-la?

7257416 It's not a stupid question at all. :twilightsmile: Shangri-la is just a kingdom in MLP's world that's named after an archetypical fictional paradise.

This looks so cool! Keep up the writing :pinkiehappy:

ya thats not going to happen twi

ha i was wondering when twilight would get reconized because of who she is and who her family is. i mean come on with all those close ties to the princesses im surprised that twilight isnt considered the one of most eligible bachelorette in canterlot.

Uhm, some chronological alteration and a very different from the show tour and introduction of the mane six. Good, real good!

7274242 Yeah, I imagine Twilight would have a lot more suitors if she weren't so shy and introverted.

I've just started reading this story and the beginning has me hooked already!:pinkiehappy:

7280752 I think you're gonna like it a lot; Sunset is gonna be featured very prominently in it. :rainbowdetermined2:

The Art of Harmony by Sun Godess

I think you're going a little overboard with Twilight's attitude. I'm probably the least social person I know and I'd still be friendly towards people who were friendly towards me.

What can I possibly say other that it was a wonderful chapter?

7314743 7315252 Wonderful; I'm glad you guys are enjoying it so much! :twilightsmile:

OK that was awsome can't wait to see what you do with The rest of the journey and Nightmare Moon.:yay:

7315589 Thank you very much! We hope the next chapter will be awesome as well.:pinkiehappy:

The final battle was good, even without the magical orbital friendship cannon or the magical jewelry... But the ending, simply not. It was waaay too simple to conclude all of this, it feels too forced!

The rest is ok, maybe a bit more detailed and elongated it would be better.

Amazing!

you never disappoint .

7334111 Well, how can I say... It doesn't seems like Luna had a real conversion. She is too fast to accept the friendship of seven people who she didn't know until few days before, and the apologies of her sister, without some kind of McGuffin resolution. Like this looks like she was just trhowing a tantrum, needing for just a little of companionship, and when presented to her, she's so desperate and tired of loneliness to immediatly accept it! A villain like Nightmare Moon would thought to a trap, for some moments at least.

And maybe for the fact that Celestia partecipates in the fight, putting it on equal terms for both the sides. It lessen the epicness and the valor of seven mortals defying a goddess.

7334169 Incidentally, you described exactly what my interpretation of Nightmare Moon in this is: she's just desperately lonely. I decided that that approach was the correct one for this story; you might disagree, and would have chosen to do it differently. I'm glad you still seem to be enjoying it, though! :twilightsmile:

As for Celestia fighting against her, I agree that it's not as epic as the Mane Six fighting her alone, but consider this: this is only the beginning of the story! I can't make it too epic right at the start, or else I'll set the bar too high and back myself into a corner I won't be able to top!

Perhaps I should make it more detailed. It's difficult, trying to strike the perfect balance between having a good pace and having the world be fleshed-out enough. :applejackunsure:

7334499 Mh, alright, I completly understand. And if you are going with more epic battles as the girls go forward in their adventure, I'll be sure to follow until the end! And confirm this story as favourite!

7334515 Sweet! :yay: I assure you, you can look forward to many epic battles throughout this story. Especially the final battle at the end; it's going to blow. your. mind. :pinkiehappy:

Thanks for giving so much support to it; the more I get, the more likely I'll be able to make it into an anime! :rainbowkiss:*Squee!*:rainbowkiss:

Hmm Pinkie seems to be an interesting fighter. I hope she is one of those start looking weak but shows great promise and then later becomes one of the best due to her talents once she can control it in some fashion,

7335149 I think you'll really like this fic, Crimson; Pinkie will get some of the most analysis of any of the characters. Incidentally, there's also gonna be much PinkieDash in it. :pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss:

7335411

Well you somehow made me even more in this story. Can't wait to see more.

I always find the ways authors use Pinkie to be really interesting and in this context it will be particularly so.

im hoping that sunset is not feateured as the vilan because it is trixies job to be the villan eventuallly with the damn bullshit amulet of unknown power

7335411 PinkieDash? so why is this story in TwiDash group then?:rainbowhuh:

And with this, a new series of adventure is just behind the corner.

Can't wait to see what is coming next, most of all the new DArk God that the Main Six will have to confront!

A door closes, a new one awaits.

Alright, so angels , a pretty much Christian thingy are from asgard , the home om the Nordic gods. Kinda rubs me the the wrong way. Couldn't you've called them valkyries? Fits with the warrior theme as well.
