I like writing. I also create Equestria at War.

King Sombra has been reformed. After falling in love with the the former king, Princess Luna is looking forward to sharing their first Hearth's Warming together. But, Sombra has other ideas.

The holiday has brought up only bad memories and after a chance meeting with a filly those memories become all too real.

Can Luna show him the true meaning of Hearth's Warming? Or will Sombra let the past consume him?


Written for Ice Star's Lunbra contest.

This was adorable! I really loved how grumpy Sombra was too, as a holiday hater, I can totally get why he felt that way about things. Everything about this story was very heartwarming.

Hell, I smiled. More than once.

I give this the fine rating of: πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†.

Though, I'm not a judge for the contest. It might be obvious as to why. Might.

This was amazingly wholesome. Ty

Here because I'm reading through the other contest entries. On the whole, this was enjoyable! I had to struggle at the start to adjust to the relationship, which at first felt sudden and oddly artificial, but later exposition (such as the way they met via a dream, and the way that they interacted in the orphanage and graveyard scenes) filled that out comfortably around the edges. This does a good job of exploring Sombra's pain without feeling overwrought, and feels quite consistent with the redemptive themes of the show.

Good luck!

Should I recognize Radiant Hope from something like the comics, or is she an OC?

Radiant Hope is a comic character and an important part of Sombra's backstory. It's one of the very few things I consider canon from the comics.

Thank you for the comment. I'm glad you liked it. :twilightsmile:

Okay, this was neat. I don't keep up with the comics at all, but i still enjoyed the story a lot. Luna and Sombra felt pretty real and what you can expect if you've watched the show, which I think is a good thing. I like how Sombra didn't completely embrace the holiday, either, but has found parts he can enjoy. All in all, a very nice story.

This is the second story I've read as a judge of the Lunabra contest... And you raised the bar very, very high. I very much enjoyed this story, and I wish you the best of luck in the contest!
