This story takes place some time after Season 2 Episode 26 "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2".

Kevin the changeling gets a subliminal call from Queen Chrysalis to return to the hive.

Whilst he recognises that he could face severe retribution for having betrayed her, the draw is too strong to ignore.

Why has she called him back?

Thank you - glad you enjoyed it!
:twilightsmile:

Wow. I didn't expect something like this to happen from a single "invitation".
Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.


After reading it I noticed something:
There are no other Changelings around. Even if Chrysalis would have sucked them dry an empty husk would remain.

I have a theory on why that may be the case:
Maybe Chrysalis knew her time is over, so she had told the other Changelings to grab all remaining love and the eggs, move out and found a new hive somewhere else.
Afterwards she called specifically for Kevin.
By delivering the letter (since the ponies know Kevin she can be sure it will reach the destination) Celestia will believe the Changelings are gone, and no longer bother to look for them. This gives the new hive a much better opportunity to remain undetected, since the ponies aren't actively searching for it
.

Am I overthinking this or may that actually be the case?

You do not know what it is like to be a mother and watch your children slowly starve, but if you did, you may understand that a mother will go to any lengths to feed them. That is why I was forced into taking what we could not get from any other means, and paid the most terrible price.

So uh... Why didn't you ask? Your own fault they defended themselves, and you ate your fellows.

Dont think that would do much. Changelings may as well be considered parasites.

Sapient parasites. They also aren't that dangerous to hosts. Something could be worked out.

Its more a pride thing, really. Chrysalis won't lower herself to her prey's level and just fucking ask for help or negotiate.

meh, partly yes. Also, it can cause discomfort to the host not lethal in any way.
But they were hidden for at least 1000 years (Thats how old chrysalis is) so they went blind in.
A lot of mistakes but understandable ones.

I came for the feels, I got the feels.
It's over, Chrysalis. No future, just nothing.
Good job, author!
