I'm a brony and a Pinkie Pie fan but I like all of the mane six, as well as Spike. I hope to provide some entertaining and interesting fanfics for the Brony community.


Nopony ever said being Captain of the Guard and prince of a long lost empire was easy, but Shining Armor never imagined having to deal with a problem quite like this. Apologizing to the new king of changelings, Thorax.

With Thorax set to take the throne and rule over the new changeling hive, he arranges a visit to the Crystal Empire to seek guidance from Prince Shining Armor and Princess Cadence. And Shining realizes now he must apologize to Thorax for what unfolded the last time the two met.

Can Shining Armor prove to Thorax that he has learned his lesson, and what is Thorax's real reason for coming to see Shining on such short notice?

Somehow, I had a harder time reading this fic than I did Derby Dilemma.
And it wasn't poorly written in any way, since both Shining and Thorax DID feel in character.
I won't be adding it to my faves, but I WILL upvote it.

I'm definitely looking forward to that Starburst shipfic, though.

That was nice I hope in the show we see the two actually offically make up and create a bond between their two kingdoms.

Did you ever do an Anon A Miss fic?

Shining Armor's position becomes very understandable if one remembers that Thorax was never a totally innocent party in all this. Like he said, he was part of the attack on Canterlot. That's an order of magnitude worse than what Shining did, though to be fair, he might've done worse if given the chance—or perhaps not. We'll never know.

It's a good thing Shining started off with that since it kept Thorax from having to ask for forgiveness in return!

By the way, wouldn't it be ironic if the Changelings only managed to overpower and abduct Cadance and Shining Armor because, after their experience with Thorax, they felt safe to let more Changelings in? And those turned out to be actual infiltrators?



While Shining Armor might be nervous about the reasons behind Thorax's visit to the Crystal Empire, I cannot picture him being THIS paranoid. He is a brave stallion, a former Guard Captain of the Canterlot Royal Guard. I doubt he'd be going to pieces this badly. And "King" Thorax is not HIS King and has no authority to "punish" him. It's an unrealistic expectation, even if Shining were stressed out about the visit.
