I'm just someone who likes writing stories.

This story is a sequel to The Last of the Dark Ponies


Beware the Queen of Rage and Wrath.
For deadly are her many ploys.
And little pity is in her heart.
As her rage consumes and wrath destroys.

So sung the ancient Saddle Arabian bards of their nations most dangerous enemy. Queen Rabia of the Dark Pony Empire. Ever did she match wits and force with their old kings until her surprising demise, leaving her daughter Ira on the throne. Then the ancient Saddle Arabians finally invaded, destroyed their ancient enemies and executed the Last Queen. But Rabia had another child, the mysterious Lost Son who disappeared from her court before these events.

King Sombra, former tyrant of the Crystal Empire, the Shadow King. Lost Son of Queen Rabia. Exiled in his first defeat, killed in the second, fled into hiding in the third and finally captured the fourth time and sent to Tartarus. He would probably be rotting there along with Lord Tirek if there wasn't just one problem.

In his fourth defeat, his mother Queen Rabia unexpectedly returned. Promising the destruction of modern Saddle Arabia for what their ancestors did. The Saddle Arabians call the destruction of the Dark Pony Empire and the execution of the Last Queen their Great Shame, but the Queen of Rage and Wrath does not care.

For the destruction of her empire, they will face the Rage of a Queen.

For the execution of her daughter, they will face the Wrath of a Mother.

Saddle Arabia's hope may lie in the absolute unlikeliest source. The Tyrant of Fear and Hate. Who doesn't particularly like them much either.

It's finally here! I'm so excited for more! Also, there's one instance where 'Sombra's' is rendered as 'Sombras' but that should be an easy fix.

That error has been fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

I think the period in the title should be a comma...

That is an excellent point, I have fixed the title.

“Well, this is the first time I’ve heard my mother being referred to as a manticore,” Sombra casually remarked, causing Foxy to almost jump her height and quickly turn around, placing a hoof over her rapidly beating heart.

Was that a reference to Tyrant of Fear and Hate? :rainbowlaugh:

The king growled and tossed the second towel away, missing using his magic to dry up. He grabbed a third towel to finish up.

Three towels?
I loved the flashback in this chapter. I love the story over all. Captain Vago seems like a strict but nice stallion. I love seeing Sombra reminiscing about his past.

...Also SIX towels?! That's just ridiculous. Maybe Sombra can't cook but with this in mind he can at least do some laundry work.:rainbowderp:

Yes, Yes it was. :pinkiehappy:

There may or may not be laundry in his future. :rainbowlaugh:

Does Ira play an expanded role in any of your stories? She was already a wasted character in the comics and she's dead here... ...She deserves a bigger role!

In order not to spoil for those who have not read the story, here is a not so cryptic hint:
In the story Temor, you may find the answer you seek.

Ooo getting some more details about Celestia and Sombra. I’m all for that and maybe end up together if Sombra isn’t planned with anyone else.

this story is really cool please make more

10262662
All I can say is there are no real solid plans for either of them, I'm keeping everything open. :pinkiehappy:

No worries, there will be more, though the second part, which we are heading into, may have more a choppier update schedule, since I actually had to rewrite a good chunk of it (I'm still rewriting a good chunk of it), including chapter 12.

Sombra heard squealing, followed shortly after by mildly hysterical giggling. He was coming from the washroom. The others had tasked him with cleaning the six towels that he had used during his first shower in the house. Although the Dark Pony felt the activity a bit beneath him, he had held back any grumbling about it, knowing playing nice was essential right now.

Oh Hello there, where have I seen you before...hehe

Well, that worked.

YOU ABSOLUTE BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AGAAAAAAAAAIIIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually considering having a scene of Dew going "You used Six towels? You get to clean that up" and Sombra grumbling about that. But any point that would have happened, adding such a comedic event just didn't fit into it.

Isn't he though. :rainbowlaugh:

“How dare that insufferable pony cast aspersions on me as a mother,...

“To face adversity. Sombra was a pedigree,...”

Duuuuude, that vocabulary. I learn so many -before unknown- words reading this.

I was going to make a solely wacky reaction comment about these ridiculous names you create and ask you WHY but there's already an Author's note. Seriously Horsefar, MUSTANGFOR IV?! :rainbowlaugh:

What can I say, this may be a little more mature take on MLP, but it is still MLP. Odd names are just par for the course. :pinkiehappy:
