Nothing special here, move along, nothing to see, just ignore the lump under the sheet and the red stuff...


After the changeling invasion, the race of changelings is broken and scattered, their Queen mortally wounded. Extinction is inevitable, unless Queen Chrysalis can convince Princess Celestia and Luna into a desperate gamble for the survival of their race. Sometimes the only path to victory, is surrender.

Based off the video Children of Faust (not mine)

The video this fic is based from is called "Children of Faust", by Sensko featured on EqD Sept. 27, 2012. I take no credit for Sensko's excellent work, I merely bow weeping at the foot of the master.

The story is marked as Complete. I doubt that I will add more chapters to it ever. (Unless of course there is a loud screaming multitude of ardent fans who demand it. So probably not.)
Edit: Approved at 10:00 or so. Nice.
Edit: I'm just loving the comments. I'm starting to think I did the right thing stopping where I did.


“Our decision has been made.”

You're a evil person, who likes to give Cliff Hangers on completed stories.


Damn it, cliffhanger!

I think I read a fic where Crys turned the hive over to Celestia. Basically going 'hey, they are your citizens now, so you have to save them.'

Nice ending; let the reader create their own ending from their own view as to what Celestia and Luna decided. Would they believe Chrysalis's final plea? Or would they decide that, as bitter as it is, all these predators must be gone if ponykind is to be safe? And, if they decide to spare the little Changeling Princess, who could possibly raise her to be the right sort of person?

Maybe she just needs to be raised by a group who can be the right role models? :applejackunsure::fluttershbad::pinkiegasp::rainbowhuh::raritycry::facehoof:

1634110 Hm. I could write a fic on Hope being raised by the Mane 6, but it would have to have the Horror tag. :pinkiehappy:

Sequel, please.

Accursed ending, but great story.

Damn... give me a moment to think of a reply... Funny thing despite my characterization of Chrysalis I can see her maybe making the choice to surrender to save her hive, and Celestia showing mercy to her fallen foe. This is very well done, thank you.
Copper blood or Iron blood it matters not, for they are both Children of Epona.

Celestia's Paladin

Absolutely phenomenal. Your writing style is lovely, let me first state. Nothing lacking (from what I could see) in the grammar/spelling areas, and this plot is soooo scrumptious :heart: I've half a mind to beg you for more of it. Even if I were to write a fanfiction for this fanfiction, I don't think i'd ever do it justice. So pleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease write more!

Oh yeah sequel.... not necessary but it would be nice to see Chrysalis' daughter as an adult.

Complete...yet cliffhanger ending?


Great story nevertheless. :pinkiehappy:

I approve of this fiction, and love it more than I should!

1633870 I humbly request the title of this fix. :|

1634150 Verily, Moar is requested of thee, in the vein of this story.

I'll disagree and say I don't think this needs more than has been written.

The story about Chrysalis, and Chrysalis' story is over. The story with the new queen would be...different, certainly, but by its nature it would not have the punch of this one.

I've always been fascinated with the idea of "what happens to the bad guy who isn't killed?" (Thus sprang Tozomuc, but that's another fic) I suspect I would have liked a more bitter, more broken, and less contentious Chrysalis, but I still like this fic! It covers exactly what it needs to cover, and no more.

This is awesome :pinkiehappy:

You, or someone you trust, should make a part two with the growing princess changling queen.
this has huge potential!!!!!!!!!!
awesome cliff hanger but serioously! please continue:fluttershysad:
that is an order!:trollestia:

I would beg for a sequel or continuation, but that would make me a hypocrite for denying my readers one.

The ending was excellent, and, though Celestia's wrath is divine, I do not feel she would slay an innocent child that has the chance to be redeemed. She is just, not bigoted. I wholly interpret the merciful ending of this story, and I love it. Thank you, author.

Cool idea.
But you can't leave people hanging like that!
It's mean to make people go through a cliff-hanger that big.
Plus, if you don't write what happens next,
Then all that I can say is that I might write what I think happens.
Of course, if I do that, I won't take credit for your work that you've already done.
So if you don't want that to happen, then I suggest that you keep adding onto this story.

A beautiful story.

Ever since I saw end of season 2 I've kept running through my mind the notion that now that they are a defeated and most likely now a hunted race, that their only hope would be turn turn to Celestia and ask that she be their new queen. Her love for her people so great that she could feed them without their having to steal the emotion and their hope that she could one day love them that much.


From this day forth you shall be known as Cliffhanger only.


1634150 Why would it need the horror tag?

Beautiful :raritydespair:

Huh. A fantastic moral quandary and an excellent portrayal of Chrysalis. I hope someone writes a sequel to this, but even if it never gets continued, it was wonderfully executed.

1633870 wasn't chrysalis it was queen metamorphosi of the everfree hive. and she tricked celestia into taking her hive since the old ways wouldn't work anymore.dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Queen_Chrysalis.png whadya know?

and i am with those calling for more.:twilightsmile:

1634150 I'm not entirely sure why it'd require a Horror tag?
...but alright. If that's the price we have to pay, I'd be interested.


Oh yeah, you are correct. Still it's a valid gambit.


Okay I didn't want to do this but it worked with wererabbit so it may work with you.


Write a sequel or Samuel L Jackson will be coming for you... maybe. :trollestia:

*in the middle of the story*
This is amazing! I'm going to make a hilarious comment when this is done.
*sees cliffhanger ending*
*goes back to title page and notices "Complete" tag*
*pulls a 9mm out of desk and cocks it*
... Today is the day bitches die.
*gets up and walks out of house, not even bothering to close the door*

More please.

Our decision has been made.

So has the readers, princesses. I speak on behalf of all (if not all, then most) of the readers of this story. Our decision is...

:flutterrage::flutterrage:MOAR NAO!!!:flutterrage::flutterrage:

oh come on! where is the next part!
it was getting so good!

2107207 Told 'em before, I'm not making a sequel until I can rip hearts out and make giant lakes full of tears over the course of a whole fic. Might have some time later, right now working on Monster in the Twilight where Twilight's entrance exam into Celestia's school went *horribly* wrong, and now she wanders the everfree as a feral beast, as powerful as Celestia in some ways. More glass-lined craters and tragic destruction, but I'm reveling in my "You made me cry! Now when's the next chapter?" emails :pinkiehappy:

no. just no.

2257167 Obviously you're not reading The Monster in the Twilight :twilightsmile:

Two words: Queen Cadence.

1634150 Dude. That'd be awesome.


I say raise the kid well. But be careful.:trixieshiftright:

Have a like for that.

(also, the site needs a Chrysalis emote. Imagine there is one here)

“Our decision has been made.”


Georg, you are a troll. I salute you. ;_;7

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache: ...and a half.

Yes... I honestly can't see Celestia taking any other course.

Perhaps if raised in abundance, control will be learned. Also, I suspect that Equestria is advanced enough to limit the fertility of a mating flight in... well in the interests of Peace I shall simply say "better ways than what Chrysalis had to resort to".

I think this was one of the first stories I read. Thanks.

At the very least, it needs a sequel oneshot on the daughter's fate.
