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.


Mere months after retaking the Crystal Empire from King Sombra, Price Shining Armor discovers a secret about Cadence's past that is almost as bizarre as why King Sombra lost the Crystal Empire because of Discord, Shining Armor hates his new inlaws and the crystal ponies are laughing hysterically at their new Prince.

All is not funny, however as Princess Celestia seems to be in on the cover up. So soon after Queen Chrysalis's attempted takeover of Canterlot, Shining Armor struggles to come to terms with who his new wife is and needs to hurry before it tears their marriage and his trust in her apart.

Thank you so much to Pixel_Spark for her amazing cover art!

Why isn't there an alternate universe tag?


Why isn't there an alternate universe tag?

We missed that tag when I originally talked with my Brony husband about what tags to use. And when I saw your comment I thought, "Oh yeah, it needs it".

But consider this - we don't really know who Cadence's parents were/are. The show never says AND we don't really know much at all of what happened between the time Shining, the Mane Six and Cadence defeated King Sombra and the Equestria Games. A detail of Sombra's history was never given, so he could have been with literally any mare in the series (or stallion) and we haven't been told. I didn't think about all this at the time, but I thank you for bringing it up now, because unless someone can point out where anything in this story is flat-out contradicted by existing series canon, it doesn't :twilightoops:

Star Wars reference and this is one of the few fics of Sombra being Cadence's father that I've been able to find. I want one that totally rips off the Empire Strikes Back reveal scene.

Cadance and Sombra relationships are always interesting, and this one is especially so! But I just tend to like the dynamic anyway, whether they're father and daughter or Somdance, so I dunno.
