Silent Earth


Evil is evil. Greater, lesser, middling, it's all the same. I haven't done only good in my life. But if I’m to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.

"We are more than the span of our lives on this world, however brief or lingering. It is what we leave behind—the comfort we give, and what little pain we can take away—that is our true legacy."

Applejack has never been one to second guess who she is. But lately, she can't seem to shake the feeling that something is missing, that a part of life has passed her by.

Sometimes, it takes another to remind us what it means to truly be home.

Listen to the cries of my people, from a far distant land:

“The Princess is still in Canterlot. But what of our Queen? Why is she not beside us? We have provoked the wrath of sun and moon, and the anger of the heart, but we fought only out of need. The harvest is past, the feeding is ended. And we are not yet saved.”

My people are broken, so I am broken. I mourn, and horror has taken hold of me.

The sky here's very strange. I often have the sensation when I look at it that it's a solid thing up there, protecting us from what's behind... Nothing, I suppose. Just darkness. Absolute night. -The Sheltering Sky

Twilight's pride was wounded deeply when her friends laughingly discredited her ability to operate a simple waffle iron, much less lead a covert task force in exterminating a troublesome dragon. Now, she has sworn to prove them all wrong, not simply by slaying a dragon, or by making incredible waffles, but by doing both -- at the same time. Alas, as it is far easier to procure ingredients for waffles than it is to find a dragon for slaying, her quest may be hopeless. Unless...

Know who you are. The rest follows.

A simple enough sentiment, but for Twilight, it seems an impossibility--how can a pony understand the love of another when she cannot even understand her own? But the heart wants what it wants, and as Twilight struggles between the feelings she has for her brother and the affections of a friend that she cannot return, there is one final lesson that she must learn to embrace:

Sometimes, there is no choice but to be true to yourself.

This story is currently on hiatus due to growing far beyond my original intent. It will be continued, and completed, when I have the time to dedicate to focusing on it.

In Equestria, civil war threatens. Discord sits upon his dark throne, holding sway over all. "Each According to Their Right" is his creed, and a rigid caste system has enthralled the ponies for generations. The earth ponies share a difficult, tedious existence, with little hope of once more becoming equal to their unicorn and pegasi brethren. Celestia and Luna, one-time rulers and keepers of the Astrals, are missing, and the citizens have begun to lose hope in ever seeing their return. There are those who still fight, however, and they risk everything to overthrow Discord's rule. But chaos suffers the will of none, and has a balance all its own. A balance that few know is, at times, best left undisturbed...

A fic about fate, consequence, and the cost of the greater good, set against the dystopian backdrop of Discord's twisted rule. It is a darker, harsher take on Equestria's past, but one that tries to uphold canon whenever possible.
