Alex Warlorn

Just your average Brony who happened upon an idea that might actually turn out to be clever enough for guys to love.


Discord beaten. Reality restored. But invisible wounds must heal too. Pinkie Pie, and Celestia, tell their stories, memories long buried, and the connect between the different generations of My Little Pony are revealed, and the stunning truth of how they connect to the origins of Equestria.

Who is Firefly?
Who is Patch?
Who is Minty?
Who is the pony Kimono, and how is she connected to Zecora?

Season four of the Pony POV Series is here on FIM.

Laughter, tears, smiles, actions, adventure, frights, darkness and light and heart-warmings ALL await you!

This is great that you're moving on to the important backstory, but I have a technical question regarding the inclusion of backstory. I know this is all technically optional canon, but are you going to include "A Prologue" in this section also? You know, the one where we get introduced to anarchy? Just wondering.

Mental image: Please don't have the author freak out, please don't have him freak out!):twilightoops:

That is, the more detailed introduction to anarchy. Or is that non-canon now?

There was a comment here, but it got moved to my Blog for being too long.

Read it here.


I will bear witness to many horrible and wonderful times, places and people.
They begin and end and I remember and I forget.
Who will bear witness to nothing? Everything?
Others... and me.

Mugen Kagemaru I still have your cookie. I trying to decide on how to preserve it.


You could always just eat it. That's why it was the reward for getting my Chrono Trigger reference.


I could eat it. But it would take less work to preserve it than trying to clone it into something edible.
... too much thought into this? Yeah. I miss the days I had more sanity in between my ears.

MOTHER/EarthBound reference for the fuckin' win!

And I wonder if Luna ever recognized Pinkie Pie or *SNIP*

I mean, I know Celestia revealed to Pinkie that she was once Star-Catcher, but did Luna ever go to her and say "Hey, it's me, the Alicorn you and Minty fought against back when the previous world ended, how ya doin'?"

EDIT: Whoops, too soon for that. Spoiler redacted.

And so it begins.

Sorry, Twilight. You're not ready for the truth. Not yet, anyway.

But with Celestia's story, perhaps you will become capable of grasping mine.

(OoC: I wondered when this would go up. Props, Alex.)


His story, you mean? Just his backstory. :raritywink: Like the Doctor, Mugen* is more than what he claims to be.

It's AU, in any case. Not needed to get a grasp of the story. After all, you didn't write this with the same twist in mind as I did when I starting posting as if I were playing one of the Interviewers. Besides, you'd have to rewrite the whole thing from Season 1's Epilogue to include him.

* Yes, my OC's name is my username, and I'm sure I ain't the first to do that.

If I might cut in, Celestia, and I do apologize for the delay, but please excuse me, Twilight, as I was supposed to interrupt during that whole "reality as a tree" metaphor and basically sum it up for you. As I told Pinkie Pie earlier, this was shared with me by a dear friend.

"There are as many worlds as there are potentialities."

And indeed, there are some versions of Equestria out there where, for instance, Luna never became Nightmare Moon, some of which were because it was Celestia, instead, who fell to the Nightmare and... *is glared at by Celestia* well, I shall save that story for another time.

Pray continue, Celestia.

(OoC: I swear, Alex, I am having too much fun with these. I miss already the IC comments you would post, even though I misses the dA comments. T'was you who gave me the idea, you know, way back in Season 2.)


Celesia, "I am fully aware there are worlds where I fell into corruption instead of my sister. And worlds where Twilight became a selfish show off and Trixie a pony willing to learn about the bonds with others. And it is not 'the' Nightmare. You'd be VERY surprised what a tiny percent of realities where Luna's sickness was an external invader make up existence."

Oh. That answers my question I had since ep 38.

Past/Future of your story. cause and effect
It never crossed my mind that times/events/memories would be non-euclidean or not 3D? I thought too simple. I only thought of the why and not the other questions. It must have crossed my mind yet I did not see it until today.
Forgive me. I sometimes write things without paying attention to what I write. Or I don't connect the dots fully.


(OoC: There we go! :rainbowlaugh: )

:ajbemused: But let me ask you this, Celestia, did TWILIGHT know that before you told her?

No? I thought not. It was for her, not you.

Now, as you were saying?

*Cue "Origins: Celestia - Part 2"*

For anyone who reads this. I'll need a cover image for Pony POV Series Season Five: Mind Games.

For once, I can't think of an IC comment that would work here, so instead, a piece of backstory for you all.

Imagine, if you will, all worlds, all potentialities, falling apart at the seams, and even in ways you could never have possibly imagined, and some that are not even possible.

And as all that went on, a great war raging, one God versus another God, and each of their followers risking his/her/its very EXISTENCE to fight for their God's cause.

Not enough to describe it, I know, so let's add this in as well.

The Last Great Time War from Doctor Who merged with the Battle Of Armageddon as it was presented in the Book Of Revelation.

And a demon-made-mortal-that-was-then-twisted-into-something-else fighting and losing friends and family and Heaven knows what else.

That is war as my OC sees it, for indeed, he fought in that war.


Yeah, I don't blame you.

Ultimately, it's what he saw in that war that really made him feel for his fellow long-lived(1) and truly treasure youth(2).

(1) Long-lived such as Celestia, though he could also get along with Her Parents if enabled. In fact, I already thought up an addition epilogue for my AU wherein he shares (non-alcoholic) drinks and a chat with Them, even addressing them by... other names. :raritywink:

(2) Side-effects have, so far, included, but are currently not limited to, a greater-than-ever soft spot for children, occasional envy for their innocence, and often reminiscence on his childhood.

EDIT: Made a blog post concerning this War I mentioned. Read if you're curious, but it's not necessary to understand Alex's story.

And the Phantom Toll Booth.

I warned them. I just hope they won't need dentures after this.

(OoC: And so it ends. Is this it for this season, or can we expect more?)



Twilight and Spike. Mugen was gonna either talk Macintosh into returning it, or swiping it when Mac's not looking. Of course, the two of them doing that kinda de-rails it, but hey, Mugen can't solve everything, and the ones he does aren't always solved the way he'd prefer they be solved. :derpytongue2:

Well, that was interesting. I wonder how many Draconequui and Alicorns there are.

Oh, and

I looked up to see a mixed-up but still somehow lithe creature. It was sitting in one of the chairs reading a book titled 'Pony POV Series, Generational Transitions by Alex Warlorn.' It wasn't a part of my library.

That was amusing.

Aunt Galaxia I presume?

Also, I am now just a tad confused. Why are they being turned into their "present" selves, when 4th generations Equestria's history actually exists? How exactly does Discord's reign fit in? What about NIghtmare Moon?

This is starting to turn out to be my least favorite fic, if only because it makes no sense. I understand that the idea is to show what happened to the '3rd generation', but then when you combine it with what we know of the '4th generation', both canon and this series's own canon, its gets....muddled from my perspective.

Hopefully there's a better explanation further on in here, otherwise I might just end up skipping this one entirely and moving on to Season 5.


Alicorn: As many are there are major Arcana minus two, originally.

Draconequus: At what point in eternity? There used to be six. But things happened.


Which chapter are you talking about?

"Also, I am now just a tad confused. Why are they being turned into their "present" selves, when 4th generations Equestria's history actually exists?"

It didn't, yet.

"How exactly does Discord's reign fit in? What about NIghtmare Moon?"

That'll all be revealed in time.

"This is starting to turn out to be my least favorite fic, if only because it makes no sense. I understand that the idea is to show what happened to the '3rd generation', but then when you combine it with what we know of the '4th generation', both canon and this series's own canon, its gets....muddled from my perspective."

Celestia is trying her hardest to explain it.

And things DO MAKE MUCH MORE SENSE down the line. And skipping this season would be a big mistake.

Since several questions are answered here.

The elders...the elders...they're...


Strife herself just proved that all that world needed was struggle, all it needed was for the cycle of death to be restarted, for darkness to be reinserted into their world! It is through struggle and conflict that we and all life grows and finds meaning, and differentiates ourselves from each other as we all grow and react to said struggle! Beings that had never fought once in their lives, beings that had never ever known conflict, and yet those she fought proved themselves more capable than she had thought.

All it needed was for Disharmony to return to it, and the world could have been saved, or at least given a chance. It would have been painful for the inhabitants, but then at least they could have gone out fighting, if they didn't have it in them to win in the end.

This right here, this is why I say to myself and all others that you cannot have good without evil, order without chaos, Harmony without Disharmony. Remove one and everything becomes stagnant, nothing but a shell. Yin and Yang.

Oh, and to Celestia and Luna, no one, and I MEAN no one, is perfect. The very fact that your Elders didn't know how to solve this any other way is proof of that.

is it just me, or do the Draconequui seem to get and understand this sort of thing more than the Alicorns?
I'm also noticing...with the other Draconequui, it seems to me that your making it out that they aren't evil, so much as representing what they are. I really like this, as it points out that at one point, maybe, Discord wasn't as mad as he is now.

Rainbow Sparkle: Hmm...so this is what you meant. I do have to ask though Celestia...what do the rest of Discord's family think of Discord now? Is that why he remains imprisoned, because they realize that he'd gone too far?


Um. No.

The problem was the mountain load of contradictions on top of contradictions on top of contradictions. The timeline had turned into a cancerous mess.

Destruction sounds like a very interesting character...also sounds kinda like me when someone gets my temper boiling enough.

The link doesn't seem to work anymore Alex, did the art get deleted or renamed?

Now this was truly glorious, but once again in my mind points out that even the elders, the parents, aren't even perfect. I also have to say that I'm loving how your portraying Discord, simply marvelous is a vast understatement. Discord is shining greater than he ever has in any fanfic I've read of him with him being a badguy.

Ah, there's the sick demented Discord we know and love.



The worst part is that he doesn't embrace the practical application of his purpose in creation like his siblings do. Everything is a breeding project to Strife. Anarchy hates authority and drags his feed when his responsibility as a part of the family comes calling. And ________ really loved seeing mortals ________ with their imagination and _______, which is why Pandora (the spirit of creativity expression in it's good and bad forms), liked ___ the most before __ got erased by Entropy erased her own child for challenging her. And Discord, well, you can see how much he loves to spread disharmony and chaos. Destruction's problem is like an addiction he has to keep a lid on.

1330755 I have no idea which chapter or link you even speak of.

1330638 And the draconequus who got unmade? Discord was the ONLY member of his family laughing and clapping when it happened.

"Sir Big Machintosh! Ye shall return the fair doll of maiden Twilight Sparkle or face my lance!" Called Spike's voice.

Big Mac sighed and came out. "Look kiddo, it was cute the first but seriously, I'm tired of bucking you all the way back to Twili's. I hate trouncing guys who don't stand a chance. You really need to stop this before I accidentally hurt you and-" The piece of wheat fell out of Big Mac's mouth as his jaw fell open.

There was Twilight Sparkle, carrying Spike. Decked out in medieval armor of her own. "Ye shall most assuredly return younger Smarty Pants to my shackle or face our chivalry!" Declared Twilight as she lowered the visor.

"The gals at school are never gonna believe this." Applebloom said looking at the window.

Best. Ending. Ever. I can totally see Twilight decked out in the armor, a challenging smile on her face. I have to wonder though, what exactly inspired her to help Spike in getting the doll back...I'm sure it has something to do with all that she's been told, but I don't for the life of me know exactly what.

A question to Celestia: Have you seen any timelines that have you, you personally, reaching the Discord as a kid that you knew after the memory spell restored your memories?


" . . . I'd rather not talk about it . . ."


Spike and Smarty Pants are both very dear to her. And she was reminded of that dearness from what Celestia told her of her happy life with the G1 ponies.

Bottom of chapter 7, and I quote

(A link to an image of the Anti-Mother Of Creation http://wolfram-and-hart.deviantart.com/art/Celestia-Shall-I-Speak-With-Entropy-301440654 )

Huh...that's odd, the link works now. When I was trying to get to it before it gave me a 404 error...
My dear princess, please pardon me for pressing...but you did just share all the rest of that with us (we semi-everpresent interviewers) and your student. To recollect it shouldn't be too painful, as I'm sure there are other timelines out there where things went worse, of which I don't even need to begin to suggest to you the possibilities, I'm sure.

But if you truly do not wish to speak of it, I shall abide by your wish. I am merely a curious being seeking to gain more knowledge and understanding. I am certain that such a path had its own consequences, some of which might not have been better or worse (as it seems all things balance out in the end of things)

omg... there are so much details in this season that i'm geting very confused :S Too much to follow i guess. Still, this is by far the most developped storyline i have ever seen! You sir are a great writer. :pinkiesmile:

Links works now, also... someone dares to assume what Entropy looks like? Meh, their probably dead already. Also I'm waiting for Pinkie Pie to appear and claim this was how she earned her cutie mark..... like a boss.


Pinkie Pie, "NOt really, they're alright. And it's not how I earned my cutie mark, Minty . .. . Minty . , , excuse me."

Someone needs to take it upon themselves to sacrifice their life to fill out a detailed story progression chart for Alex... not it!


Minty? What about her, or are you referring to me? :derpytongue2:

. . . .


Could I possibly BE Minty!? :pinkiegasp: :pinkiehappy:

Le' gasp! And onward to the FUTURE!!!!!! :scootangel:
