I'm just someone who likes writing stories.


King Sombra actively destroyed records about the Crystal Empire before his reign. Princess Cadance has slowly been reverting that destruction and has reached a point where only one question remains. How did King Sombra come to power in the Crystal Empire? Records are silent on that one.

It's fortunate then that during recent events, King Sombra himself was captured and locked up in Tartarus. So it should be a simple matter to go there and ask him. That's at least what Princess Cadance and Shining Armor think.

It turns out King Sombra knows quite a bit more than the royal couple realized. He knows where Princess Cadance came from.

This story is part of The Equestria Tales series

This story happens after the events of The Last of the Dark Ponies, around mid-Season 7.

Edited by Hail King Sombra

This is an interesting start. I'm not seeing what unanswered questions are left to build more of a story on, right now; it feels like a one shot with an unhappy ending.

Oh shit Time Lords. Maybe Doctor Whooves can tell Cadaence more about it if knew about the mission

Perhaps he can indeed. :trollestia:

It was originally meant to be a one-shot, but it got a bit longer than I intended so I divided it up into a few more chapters.

And Minuette.

Also very good story. Last story I read with Sombra and Teirk as roommates in Tartarus they wheren't as polite.

Well it's nice to know that Sombra and Tierk have something to do for a while.
