Greetings and bienvenue, I am Michael Ravencroft. Writer and artist. From the obscure, to the known, from Comics, to Tokusatsu, nothing eludes my creative eyes. Hark the Raven.


This story is a sequel to My Little Pony: The Entities of Emotion

Four years have passed by, four years that the Entities of the Emotional Spectrum have lived amongst the ponies of Equestria and have gotten used to mortal life, for the most part, and will soon be spending Hearth's Warming Eve with their respective families and friends.

However, this Hearth's Warming Eve night will be less than joyous. The darkness of the Blackest Night has made it's preparations and is now ready to turn this night of life and happiness, into one of death and tragedy. The Entities and the ponies whom they've sworn to protect will have to stand together if any of them want to see the dawn of Hearth's Warming Day!

"Happy Hearth's Warming to all, and to all, a dead night..."

The Blackest Night falls from the skies,
The darkness grows as all light dies,
We crave your hearts and your demise,
By my black hoof — The dead shall rise!

The orange mare blew a raspberry and waved her hoof dismissively. “Please, Adara wouldn’t get angry for that, and AB, I could take her and --” Scootaloo noticed that Spike had a look on his face, a look that was a cross between a wicked smile, and giddiness. “Adara’s behind me…isn’t she…?”

I adore that trope so much.

Caught up, WHY did I not know about this sooner?

Loving it so far.

Apple “Johnny” Seed

I understood that reference.

Elsewhere, Butcher has some bloody good fun in the wintery Stalliongrad.

I get the distinct feeling that bloody is more than just an expletive in this case.


The family stopped before a door marked 52, and knocked.

I see what you did there... :trollestia:

Awwwwwwwwwww....... fffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudddddddddddddddddggggggggggggggggggggeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Edit: Only I didn't say fudge. I said fuck.

I'd say kill him with fire, but that's too quick.

The shadow of death begins to fall.
Destroying all and taking lives.
The final battle is drawing near.
So sit back and let's see who survives.

Poor Zephyr.... Poor Fluttershy.... :fluttercry:

Funny enough it IS possible to actually subvert Nekron's influence but you'd have to be an even more vile son of a bitch who basically wants to be the ONLY thing that exists while everyone else can just die. Nekron would despise you and actually help stop him but...... yeah it's actually not that much of a stretch to say King Sombra could usurp control from Nekron... unaware of the consequences.

Oh and as for the chapter-WHY ARE YOU SO CRUEL MIKE?!

.... oh Christ. Black Hand and Nekron NOT the main villains?! OOOOOOH FUCK.

Why do I get the feeling that Nekron will be called to deal with this... or he might just show up?

Awesome chapter!

BD out

Ps: still wanna see that blue battle story

It's time to fight back!! :pinkiehappy: The Blackest Night shall not prevail!! :rainbowdetermined2:

There were bracers, each one colored to one of the seven lights, and each color having a different number of bracers.

What does a bracer look like?

Wait, when did Ophidian team up with Diamond and Silver?

8119402 I expect we will find out in the next exciting instalment!

Gotta say it, on a scale of 1 to 10 this gets a :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Also, who gets the other power bracers from last chapter?

Stalagmites hung from the ceiling

An easy mistake, but stalactites are the rock forms on the roof of caves. stalagmites are formed on the ground.
Like a tight grip on the ceiling. That's how I remember.


Bab's oath, definitely one of the best so far.

Just a small criticism, I think some of the Black Lanterns should be named. Like the one who goes to recruit Snowdrop, because it feels like it throws off the flow to just say "The Black Lantern" over and over again.
Also, shouldn't the black be trying to possess Celestia, Luna, Twilight, and Cadence as well? In the last story, you established that all alicorns have technically died and come back to life.

(Somewhere in Manehattan a teenage dragon sneezed.)


They’re all coming…for any who have cheated death…and…I’m the one they can’t stand!”

What is this? Final Destination? :rainbowlaugh: (laughing at my own jokes)

My OCD is really freaking mad at you.

..... I am..... not sure how I feel about Starlight TAINTING my Red Lanterns.

To be clear? I don't mind Starlight post-reform.... it's pre-reform I have issues with. Also.... really? Night Glider romance from out of nowhere purely so you can have her get mad?

"You are nothing but flesh driven by a slab of meat between your skulls. I'm not surprised how easy it is for my Black Lanterns to manipulate and turn you. For you are, after all, the closest to Life. But being close to Life has a fatal drawback, you see, you all are very... Susceptible to your emotions. This makes you a target for my Lanterns. They want you to feel something, Will, Fear, Hope, Avarice, Compassion, Rage, Love, all seven emotions are fragments of the white light that were splintered by me as I drove my blade into the trespasser. These seven emotions are neither Life nor Death but are the colors in between. It is the purity that resides inside of them that allows me to convert you to your natural state. For you belong to Death.

And Death belongs to all."

Can't wait for more. I love this story and since this is part of the MLDCverse I kinda want to know if someone from this equestria is part of the Legends team or if they will come to this equestria. :pinkiehappy:

So Parallax right now is a combo of Batman, Spawn and Ghost Rider, I believe it.

The alicorn mare and the teenage unicorn mare disappeared in flashes of rose and gold, reappearing in the foyer, where the fire burned brightly in the hearth. Dinky and Twilight laid on the floor close to the fire, letting it warm their bodies and chase away the small chill from outside.

rose is red (or pink, so dinky), and gold... isn't twilight's mana color purple?

“It was supposed to be our little Hearth’s Warming present…” Chrysalis spoke in an unusually shy tone. “Back before we became…what we were…this is how we looked. We were not Changelings, we were Flutterponies. Protectors, defenders of nature, and of life. We were a race that did not need to feed on the love of beings, but we flourished from the love generated from within ourselves, and what was given freely. Certain events occurred, events that forced us to become…monsters…shades of her former selves, I know that it might be some time before we can truly form a trust between us, which was why Murmur and Predator suggested we start with Hearth’s Warming, it seems to be an important holiday to you all…was this a bad time?”

:facehoof: this is even worse than the show one.

Murmur sighed and shook her head. “Honestly, your Highness, you must break that flirting habit of yours.” She then turned her head to the side, her cheeks reddening a little. “…Especially since I’m standing right here.”

oh dear Faust no

“Way to make an entrance Di,” said Silver Spoon with a smile.

lol, diamond tiara is an orange lantern

The Princess of Love rubbed her bump and smiled. “Unfortunately any time now, which is why we haven’t gone much anywhere right now. The doctors have me on bedrest until the baby’s born, but with Shining Armor and Predator around they’ve pretty much waiting on me hoof and hoof.”

this would be the worst timing for cadence to go into labor. ever.

Luna was aware of a comforting warmth nuzzling closely to her right side. The midnight blue mare turned her head and found the one responsible for this warmth, a pegasus mare. Her coat was a pale blue, mane and tail as white as snow, and the milky blue eyes of this mare, the pupils glazed over, which Luna knew meant the mare was blind to a degree. But she didn’t care really, and neither did the mare.

you are soooo evil.

Celestia radiated with Hope, Love, Compassion, Fear, and Willpower.

too many

Luna shined with Willpower, Rage, Compassion, Fear, and Love.

waaaay too many

“What do I want? I want to give freedom! Freedom from the struggles of life itself, no longer will there be rich and poor, powerful or powerless, the barriers between tribes will be broken down as all ponies – no – all creatures are brought under the same banner! Death is indifferent, even the powerful will die one day, some sooner, some later, tonight though we speed up the process!”

So death is communism?

Held within the magical aura, was a six foot sledge hammer, but modified with a magical glyph written on it. The glowing white eyes of the pony’s helm looked down upon both mares, a snort was released and in the cold air of the night appeared as a fog.
