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.

Princess Luna's daughter, Dawn, has one simple wish for her birthday that is anything but simple to grant. She wants to see her father. Problem is, he was banished for 1,000 years and despite her insisting he is not a bad pony and that there is still good in him, she may never get the chance to find out. How can a mother who is also a demi-Goddess and Princess of Equestria bear the weight of refusing her child's deepest, most fervent wish, especially when she was the one who had to destroy him in the first place?

Oh my gosh... just from that I can tell this will be very interesting! The storyline and description has got me hyped!

okay is this supposed to be a long story?
I mean I normally somehow avoid sad Sombra based storys, for reasons I don't know but this had keeped my interesst somehow, and if there is more I'm willing to read it.

I guess it more or less has to do with Luna X Sombra, I usually like to see two getting together, rather than to have an already existing pairing. However sometimes it is good too.

Thanks Prudens. It will definitely be unlike the other Lunbra ficships I've read on the 'site. I didn't start out purposely writing something different, but I'm glad it will at least for now, be a little more unique.

There are definitely more chapters coming. It's up to 6,700 words in gdocs and I'm not nearly finished yet! :pinkiehappy:

Oh yes, it will be very Luna x Sombra shippery. And if you like non-sad Sombra-ness, I have a couple of Sombra comedic ongoing stories going right now, another romantic one non-Luna based and lots of other Sombra goodness floating around in here. Feel free to check them out.

7318512 I agree with everything.

This story is so heart touching.:raritycry:. I love it so much detail and thought..:twilightsmile:

Awesome as ever~ I thought this was wonderful! I love your style writing Luna, and her daughter sounds like a cutie pie!

There is a group called lumbra, it is a group for all luna and sombra shipping. You can add your story there if you want.

Well this was good, I really enjoyed this start. This story has so much potential. Though is this part of your main timeline or is this something separate?

I agree with everything.

So do I, Prudens!

This story is so heart touching. I love it so much detail and thought.

Thanks KSR :pinkiehappy: I seriously don't think I've ever written anything with a child this young before. Not having kids m'self, the biggest challenge is getting her actions and responses accurate for a child that age. If she acts a bit older, I can blame it on her alicorn pedigree, lol!

her daughter sounds like a cutie pie!

I simply ADORE the little scene with her and her dad and think it came out amazing (am I allowed to say that? It sounds egotistical but I do love it!). "Is my fate to be bossed around by a miniature tyrant?” “Yes,” she said without hesitation. “I am a crystal tyrant and I command you to carry me around the castle.” :rainbowlaugh:

Good chapter! Quite liking where this is going.

I love where this is going. The outburst from Luna :pinkiegasp: Awsome:rainbowdetermined2:.

Thanks, Grekoy. I think I found it.

Thanks GryphonStar! I hope to live up to the potential you speak of. It is separate from The King Sombra Chronicles. Just a fancy incorporating something shippery with two canon characters for once, lol! :pinkiehappy:

Good chapter! Quite liking where this is going.

Thank you, Sanguinius. The end journey is the same, but there are many different paths that can be taken to get there and that's currently what the characters are arguing about in my head. I'm hoping they (and I) can come to a consensus before I write the next bits. Luckily, the next one and a half parts wrote themselves out before the arguing started :rainbowlaugh:

I love where this is going. The outburst from Luna :pinkiegasp: Awsome:rainbowdetermined2:.

There is a lot of passion and anger in this dynamic I couldn't resist - Luna hating Celestia for ripping her and Sombra apart, Luna hating and blaming herself for Sombra's fall - and her own supposed weakness for falling in love with a mortal pony King. But, as we all know, the heart wants what the heart wants...

Damn it why can't I give this story extra like. This is getting too good. I'm sorry, it just I have always been a sucker for the ship. This ship will always be in my top five.

The constant reminiscing about Sombra has me wanting to go back and reread one of my own old lunbra stories.

This story is too good. Keep it up! :pinkiehappy:

More, please~! :yay:

Please continue this story, I'm on the verge of tears here and need to know more.

Please continue this story, I'm on the verge of tears here and need to know more.

Thanks for the vote to continue it, CountessRose. I'll make it my next project after I finish this week's update of Frozen Shadows (almost done =) :twilightsmile:

I love it keep making more!!

Dawn is so cute - but not unbearably so! Writing cute fillies and colts without forcing their adorable nature can be a challenge, but you handle it well. I look forward to more!

Nice chapter, I loved it:twilightsmile:

Keep up the good work:raritywink:

More please

Oh my Celestia, Luna is one lucky Alicorn for having that ability :rainbowlaugh:

Mooore Man X3 I Am Loving This Story

Always looking forward to some more of this.
