More of an Equestria Enthusiast but glad to be here. | Audio Reader


The war against Sombra has left Queen Chrysalis's hive starved of pony love. As a desperate act, she braves the icy Frozen Wastes to find the Crystal Empire, said to be protected by the power of love itself...

Princess Cadance finds herself at the helm of an empire in shambles and with little experience to guide it. Things change when she learns of a pony rescued from the Frozen Wastes...

A story of worlds colliding and love blooming.

Written in the Postwar Timeline Alternate Universe.

As I've said before, this is a great and powerful promising first chapter. I'm really looking forward to reading more as this story continues. :twilightsmile:

Interesting. I'll be following this to see where it goes.

Good so far. Look forward to more.

hmmm, this is promising and its a story where maybe old Cryhs isn't absolute evil. I'll have to see how this one develops.

Very interesting. I look forward to the next chapter.

First Chapter and this has already made my day. :yay:

Promising. Waiting for more.

I wonder if Shining Armor died during the war in this universe of the line? 🤔

This looks great! Please continue!

An intriguing premise, let's see where this goes.

Interested to see where this goes.

Which was good for when she needed space to breath.


Very interesting. So this is one of the alternate glimmer-times, with no element bearers, an active but "friendly" nightmare moon, and ... what will Canterlot/Equestria look like?

Bonus points if, when we do finally see NM's staff, if she has a purple earth pony bard/historian recording her story as it happens :-).

No more Nightmare Moon. Being praised as a savior of Equestria brought Luna back.

Dang. Ok, no relation to Twilight Glow then.

(Dead fic AU that I'd like to see extended.)

So, the is the Crystal War timeline (or some variant of it)? Only set after Sombra was finally defeated?

I'm curious how different people have become in this universe. Anyway, you've got me hooked for the next chapter.

It’s a shame this wasn’t completed in time for the contest deadline. I really would have liked to see more.

Will there be more chapters soon?

I completed chapters 2, 3, and 4 for NaNoWriMo, so as soon as I get them edited, they'll be published.

Will there be an update?

This story is still alive, isn't it?
* jabbing with a stick.

What made you so sure he wasn't going to update?

September 1st? You god damn time traveling hobgoblin, stop trying to trick me.

OoC: good to see this is still going.

Chrysalis is always Chrysalis. :3
Though it would be sad if, after what she did here to save the changelings, they handed her over like they did in canon.

Well, this is going to be interesting. With none of the canon changeling episodes having ever happened here, which way is Chrysalis going to jump once she feels in control of the situation again? Start scheming how to best take over the Empire for herself and her ‘lings? Realize she’s got a good thing going already at least for the time being and hold off on that (while still making contingency plans Just In Case, of course)? Will she ever fully “get” ponies the way she clearly doesn’t quite just yet, and what shenanigans will ensue from fairly minor-seeming misunderstandings in the meantime?

Time will tell... 🍿

Nice to see you're continuing this story. :)

Ah, nice to see this continue; thanks for writing. :)

The chapter still turned out well, even sans an editor.

I like this take on Chrysalis: opportunistic without a tendency toward stupid evil.

Going to be interesting to see how Cadence interacts with Chyrssy and if this truns into a the "villian" finds out they have a soft spot for the protagonist. Although maybe it's not that kind of story idk also I like that Chrysalis has some devious subterfuge to her.

An interesting au so far. One would think that under better circumstances one who can eat live and one who can create it would be natural allies, so changing their meeting is a great path to explore.
