King Sombra is on the verge of enslaving the Crystal Empire; the guards are under his control, the royal baby is in his grasp, and the royal couple are at his mercy! So why is a baby laughing at him?

Is this a comment on the fact Sombra has a new voie actor?

The Dawn of War games, which incidentally star several members of the MLP cast, have had similar issues with characters having new VAs.

Eh, I just don't like the new voice actor. It sounds like a Blueblood type jerk rather than a lord of darkness king, just my opinion, feel free to disagree.

9630781
I completely agree. If you type 'Araghast the Pillager' into Youtube, and click either the third or fourth link, that was the sort of voice I was expecting.

To be perfectly honest, I prefer DWK's interpretation of Sombra's voice. Both of them.

Just Jim Miller back would be enough for me, but not that pompous jerk voice they ruined a villain with.

That voice is so spot on good!!

Hi Kalum, what did you say in the deleted comment?

I understand this is a "coping mechanism" of sorts, but I've just never been a big fan of stories that are little more than thinly-veiled excuses for the author to complain.

That's on me, not you. Sorry.

Well, it was more my attempt at a comedic story, and I would have thought the "coping mechanism" was a clear frivolous remark (your fault again, not mine) but if you didn't find it funny I guess there's not much I can do.

Thanks for reading anyway though.

By the way, sarcasm doesn't actually count as a method of constructive criticism. It just lets me know that you're a massive prick.

Nothing is perfect ;)

9630984
Aha. Good point.

I couldn't agree more. I was almost expecting him to start complaining about a chipped hoof or getting his coat dirty. He went from sounding like dark lord tyrant to a pompous douche. Kinda hard to sound threatening after that.

Yep, pretty ridiculous wasn't it. Glad you agree, and I hope you enjoyed the fic.

That's one way to Giggle At The Ghostly™...:pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh:

Similar to my reaction to live action Jafar. New guy has nothing on Freeman.

How's this for an alternate voice for the Lord of Darkness?

Much better!

The mighty Fred Tatasciore (whom you'll probably know best as Megatron).

I just had to read this as soon as I saw it in the feed. With so many people HATING King Sombra's new voice, it's a very creative way to channel our collective, sharp disappointment into a story. I have to admit that when I saw the word count I couldn't imagine how such a one-off joke could be extended beyond the minimum 1,000 word count, but this pulled it off beautifully. Cadence's unexpected anger at Shining Armor was hilarious!

Also, I love the physical description of Sombra, very nice touches here and there.

Keep up the good work and remember to always

Hail King Sombra!

Eh, a bit over-modulated. I am still a big fan of how Zedrin voiced him in their Silly Filly Studios MLP Fan Animation Fall of the Crystal Empire.

I posted on my blog that he sounded like a bad Scar impression.

Yep, awful choice from the team.

It is seriously fun to make jokes about XD

this was hilarious!!!
