Fallen Prime

An enigma as vexing as life itself.


This story is a sequel to The Retribution of Chrysalis

Queen Chrysalis has spent the last few weeks living with Twilight Sparkle, hiding from the public eye and awaiting news of Princess Celestia's changeling relief effort. When Shining Armor discovers a critically injured changeling on the outskirts of Appleloosa, to Chrysalis' infinite delight, her hope for her race's survival is instantly reinvigorated.

But then the Canterlot hospital refuses to properly care for the changeling, leaving Cadance to provide the love he requires. The publicity forces Chrysalis to reveal herself to a fearful populace, driving her into the hooves of a fellow outcast. And perhaps worst of all, the awakened changeling has forsaken his queen. In his eyes, and in those of all of Equestria, Chrysalis must once again redeem herself.

Good to see this got approved.

First thoughts: I like it so far, and even though there is already 4 chapters, I can't wait for more. Adding this to my favorites

Best Way to start a day EVAR!!!:rainbowkiss:

No seriously. I adored your other story and pretty much sent me to search other Chryssy stories.

To finally see the Sequel is a dream come true. And one I need to start my work week.:raritycry:

So Fav and Thumps up :twilightsmile:

Oh yes! This is a story that I need to be reading! Thanks for continuing this! :twilightsmile:

Hmm. It seems that ponies tend to act rashly in Canterlot. There must be something about the capital that takes away someone's capacity for self-control.

Sixth slot in Featured with Mature off? 33 likes with no dislikes, and 61 favorites and counting? Guys, I fucking love all of you.

WTF? She became FAMOUS? Chrissy is becoming famous?! That fucking traitorous doctor.dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_RageFace.png :twilightangry2::twilightangry2::flutterrage::twilightangry2:

HA! I was thinking about this this morning!

Ow how i hate it when the sequel note is in the last line.....
Spoilered the first fic that way and now the motivation to read either is gone.........thats's kind of sad:fluttershysad:

That doctor abandoned a patient in his care, violated confidentiality, and was outright abusive to a patient's next of kin. His license is gone forever.
He also disobeyed legal orders from royalty. If the diarchs wanted to do so, they could spin it as him attempting to incite a war with the remaining changelings. That would count as treason. Throw him under the bus and suddenly Chrysalis' action stops seeming so bad.

What a difference six hours make: 68 / 0 likes, and 146 Favorites. I can't be bothered to check the home page to see its Featured ranking. Anyway, good on you, although the description is slightly spoiler-y, but I expect he'll be waking up rather soon, chapterwise, so meh.

So glad you found a way to make this sequel. :heart::rainbowkiss:

2073869 I credited her in the description. Same artist as always. No_M, My girlfriend.

“Please don’t steal my love! I’m still using it!”

Okay, for some reason that's one of the funniest lines I've ever read in a changeling story. I like! :twilightsmile:

2073680 Alas, without royal meddling, who do you think the MEDIA will be more sympathetic towards? The bad doctor, or the invading foreign power?

Suddenly, though, I think I may have a place for the doctor in the epilogue based on that statement. Assuming I can come up with a name for the guy...

All this time the now free discord is just chilling out on a cotton candy cloud laughing his Q ass off

>> Fallen Prime
Well, that depends on if the doctor is arrested for patient abandonment and treason. If word got out that he was being brought up on charges for being a horrible doctor then I doubt the public would be sympathetic, even if the princesses said nothing. Of course, if they said "We cannot comment on ongoing investigations.",that would be the same to the public as confirming it while still maintaining plausible deniability.

Of course, the doctor SHOULD be fired and stripped of his license for choosing to prevent a patient from receiving life-saving care. It's completely indefensible for any doctor to do so, and I was rather surprised Luna didn't see to that before storming off.

2074274 Is that all? Because I'm seriously taking mental notes now. I wasn't gonna have the doctor be important beyond that scene, but you're now giving me both ideas AND ways to make them work.

GOD do I need to name this guy now...

2074293 lol Pseudonymous makes VERY good points dont he?:rainbowlaugh:
THANKS for more Chrissie! good sequal liked and faved just like the first one

2074488 Wow. Cardiac Arrest is NOT the sort of name I'd want to hear if I needed some sort of operation.

That just might be perfect.

Lovely, albiet sad, story. Just read the first one as well :raritydespair:

I'm confused about something, shouldn't Chrysalis have adopted Applejack's voice and accent when she had AJ's body.

Oh, and wonderful story so far, :twilightsmile:

Pardon, did i accidentally skip over the newspaper? I wanna read what it says!
on an unrelated note, good work so far.

One person just HAD to dislike this. For shame.

It would appear the surviving changling(s) sucked the love out of the two people who downvoted this.....

BRILLIANT story. I love it!

love it...haha!
oh jeez. that pun....:facehoof:

Just one changeling huh? Boy is he going to be busy 'rebuilding' the nation. :unsuresweetie:

“We’ll do anything!” Scootaloo shouted. “My parents would kill me if I didn’t pass!”

parents? :trixieshiftright:

2079015 Just because we haven't seen them doesn't mean she doesn't have them.

Firstly, a hospital refused to care for a creature? FIRE EVERY LAST DOCTOR/NURSE THERE NOW! :twilightangry2: Once you do that, then you ruin your hospital and soon no one will come and whether die then be saved by such cruel people.

OK now I'll read. XD

2078080 I think Changelings works like bees, one queen who pumps out new drones. So Chrysalis is probably just lazy and wants as many survivors as possible so that it means less egg laying for her.

2079015 Well, Scootaloo promised herself and her dead parents that she would never fail in school. If she fails, two things might happen.
#1 her battle royale collar would explode.
#2 she would fall on her own katana (Literally)

Then when she was dead and was in heaven, her dead parents would kill her again and send her to limbo.

2083410 Do the queens of the hives do it asexually, though, or do they need to be fertilized? Depending on how many other changelings Shining Armor recovers, Chicane might spend many a day completely sore. And not from his injuries.

“Please don’t steal my love! I’m still using it!” Sweetie Belle Y U SO CUTE!? seriously, that was adorable :twilightsmile:

Looking forward to the next chapter

Keep up the good work on this story!:moustache:

2078080 LOL! Thats great.

Great start too, for a sequal to a really good fic.

By Chicane's injuries that is a fate worse than death, BUT if he can survive with those injuries for such a long peroid of time.....Chrysalis YOU BETTER MAKE HIM EITHER 2nd IN COMMAND OR MARRY HIS ASS CAUSE HE'S A STRONG ONE!!!!!

I do hope there is more then one survior. Or else he is in a world of hurt. If you know what I mean.

Well... that escalated quickly.

2089261 The Royal Changeling Wedding... and all of Ponyville shall be in attendance! I can see it now!
