This story is a sequel to Past Sins

Side-story to Past Sins - Spike almost lost Twilight to a hangmare's noose, but now Twilight is safe and Nyx is a filly again. Normal life is returning. Still, Spike can't ignore the fact that Nyx just isn't the same as he remembers her. Her temper is more volatile, and, when she gets angry, all he can see is the rage-driven Nightmare Moon of legend.

And thus Spike has to wonder: Is Nyx truly reformed, or is she one bad tantrum away from calling herself Nightmare Moon again?

Here's hoping that this will be but the first of many. :twilightsmile:

wait wait wait  AN OFFICIAL SIDE STORY / SEQUEL TO PAST SINS???? and suddenly everythiing else i was doing tonight went  right the fuck out the window.


also also

this seems like it will address one of the  things that has been most vexing  about the fan made past sins fics that  are out there.....

in all of them  Nyx is back to being afraid of everything. Despite the fact that the story itself stated that she would be more assertive. Well of course  anyone would be more assertive after finding out they were a near indestructible goddess....

#18 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

also can someody post the " and the feature box will tremble" pic? CAUSE IT WILL.

Not really. I'm a pretty big fan of that whole "freedom" thingy.

#21 · 238w, 2d ago · · 1 ·


I'll grab my shotgun.... with slug ammo

#22 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

This is the second greatest thing ever just because it is a side story to the greatest story ever.  Past Sins is and will always be my favorite pony story

#23 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

I found this to be a great addition to the main story. It really helped to delve into Spike's feelings on the matter, and it made him grow up a little as well, something that I really enjoyed reading here. Good work on that.

#24 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

also this  explains one of the alterations to  the  season 2  edit of "Past Sins"  ( the version on this site) that i originally did not like. in the previous version Spike had a line that i was rather fond off . When  at the end, Twilight asks him to go get Nyx down for breakfast, Spike orignally said something i was very fond off  that went like "  She saved Ponyville and is cool in my book, but  she shoots ligthning and is ten times my size" . In the new edit he flat out panics and  asks if Nyx can be trusted. I thought   Pen Stroke had originally changed  it to better fit in with Spike's  panicked reaction to Luna in "Luna Eclipsed" and my instant reaction at the time was that  I  preferred that it  had stayed  as it was originally.

Now i see that line alteration was necessary to set up this fic.

and now im actually going to stop prattling, calm down and will actually go read it..

Not really. I'm a pretty big fan of that whole "Not giving a damn" thingy.

#27 · 238w, 2d ago · 1 · ·


Freedom, not giving a damn, it's basically the same thing.

#28 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

And now everybody who only weeks ago paid for the bound, printed copy of Past Sins without this will come looking for Pen Stroke.

#29 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·


#30 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

Another awesome story from Pen Stroke, you never cease to amaze. :)

Here I am looking for more fan fictions of one of my favorite fan fics online when I stumbled upon this fic that had a family friendly name until I ignored the small warnings and read a horrible fan fic that's just isn't right and we should burn this guy who wrote it.

This will not be in the printed book, but the printed book will have a Side-story in it that will remain exclusive to the printed book for approximately two-months after the printing ships.

So the people who have the printed book will have their treat. :pinkiehappy:

Now, now lets not argue semantics.

We'll do that later.

I can understand Granny's feelings for Nyx since she is a southerner after all.

#37 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·


I'd rather not have that linked here, if you don't mind.

#38 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·


Refresh my memory, is the side-story a "sequel" to Past Sins, or does it take place during "Past Sins" ?

#39 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·


This side-story is after Past Sins.

The one in the printing... well, that will be a surprise. :pinkiehappy:

You are developing backwards, sir.

#41 · 238w, 2d ago · · ·

I kind of wished there was a little bit of closure between Spike and Rarity and Spike with Nyx. Like Spike letting Rarity know how stupid he was being and patching things up. Spike could've shared one last scene with Nyx in like a bit of a brother and sister like relationship that starts to bloom. Other than that great story all around.
