Brony since 2011. More of an artist, but slowly making my way into becoming a better author too! Known for Age of the Alicorns and Flurry Heart's Story.


DISCLAIMER: I came up with this story in late 2011 and started writing it in 2012. There are tremendous inconsistencies you will notice in this story, mostly having to do with Starswirl the Bearded and the Elements of Harmony. This is merely due to the fact that I had the summary drafted long before we saw the Season 7 finale which completely debunked my head-canon. Even though I have been able to change some things in this story to fit along with some canon in the past, I have decided to not change anything about Starswirl or the Elements since it was already a good enough story and I want to complete it as I originally intended to. As of now, you can consider this story to be "alternate universe" or "fan theory".

The pony residents of Equestria live in peace in their magnificent kingdom ruled by King Solmidas and Queen Chernalia. As their two daughters, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna have both earned their cutie marks, it is now time for them to learn how to rule a country so that the crown can be passed on to them when the day comes for the King and Queen to give up their authority. With some training and help from their parents as well as the renowned unicorn wizard, Starswirl the Bearded, Celestia and Luna undergo many tasks and assignments. Once such assignment: making peace with the Griffon Kingdom lead by General Leogle.

Meanwhile, a wise magician and senator of the Alicornian parliament and a good friend to the royal family, known as Accord, sacrifices much of his own time to help improve the kingdom and make an even grander domain for the ponies he loves. Things seem to be going very well for the royals, but happiness soon turns to despair as the princesses' tasks become increasingly difficult and nearly impossible. Negotiations with the griffons continue to fail and rumors of war break out causing Celestia and Luna to doubt their abilities to rule Equestria.

Can the alicorns stop the imminent war to come between the once coexisting races? Why did general Leogle betray the alicorns so suddenly? And who is the real enemy in the midst of all this chaos? All will soon be revealed but it may come at the cost of dealing with the ultimate betrayal. Celestia and Luna will soon find that despite their failures, they are the only ones who can put an end to all of this. Together they will embark on a mission to save all of Equestria, unlock an ancient power hidden away for centuries, and learn that no matter how many times you fail, you are never useless and can still do great things if you believe in yourself.

Sounds like a really good story in the works. Looking forward to it. :D

Intro pic... Intro pic strait outta nowhere!!!! But this is a nice introduction... Can't wait to see where it ends up.

WAT?!!?!? WHAT IS IT!!! WHAT'S THE NEWS!!! Pleeeeease update soon kay, kay?

1506540 The 'news' won't actually come until the third chapter (which might take a while since it contains a song) but the next chapter will indeed be epic! :D

1516758 Usually I bark at the news of slower updates... But all has been forgiven is there is a song!

1516772 I'm working on Ch2 right now and then it just needs to be proofread and it will be up. College might keep me busy but this is my final semester so after I'm done I can work on this fic till my heart's content! :D

1516782 Oh that's right... The first one was a prologue... I always get confused with chapter numbers when there's a prologue.

1516790 Yeah, and I think by default FIMfic recognizes the first one as chapter 1, that's why I had to rename this chapter "1. Luna's Test"

Not sure if this shadowy figure is the foretelling villain to infect Accord with Chaos...
Or a good guy who knows what's gonna happen to Accord.

Either way I love this!!! Please update!! When you can of course!:scootangel:

I loved Luna's lines. Great job. Can't wait for the next one. :)

1521596 Yeah, I have a lot of fun when coming up with lines for that little filly! :3:rainbowlaugh:

You know what's funny? I can't help but imagine John de'Lancie's voice for Accords speech... And yet I hear Thor's voice with King Solmidas... WTF brain? Very good chappie! Can't wait to read more!

1823914 Well I mean for Accord to have the same VA and I imagine King Solmidas sounds more like Liam Neeson.

1851111 The brain is a weird an unique tool.

“I needed a break but I am back to do my sworn duty and today will mark the beginning of a new era; just you wait…”

Also... Solmida's nick name be Sol.... I see what you're doing dear author... You clever thing you....

Can't wait for the next chapter!!! It's gonna be EPIC!!!!:rainbowdetermined2:

Somewhere... Murphy is telling himself, "What could possibly go wrong?"

:pinkiehappy:found youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

He even had to have Starswirl undo his spells sometimes because he would end up automatically transforming into random mix-and-match creatures against his own will.

Uh, excuse me? I sense something bad happening soon with these accidental spells.

6547534 Yeah, I'm working on the next few chapters, I just gotta get some proofreading done from my editor.

6547618 ok. thanks for taking the time to respond.

If the main OCs in this story were voiced, what would they sound like?

I once had a "meme" of this I did on my DA a while ago but the people I picked were too much of really well-known A-list celebrities. If I were a director choosing the voices, I'd probably save on money by having at least one or two A-list celebs voice a character but I'd probably keep lesser-known ones like Ellen McLain, Cathy Cavadini, and Kevin Michael Richardson and would most likely keep John as Accord/Discord. I don't know how much of a good younger-sounding voice Nicole Oliver can do but if she is perfectly capable, she'd probably keep Celestia. Also, EileMonty would do fantastic as Luna if Tabitha St. Germain couldn't do it.
