To pick up this book is to delve into an abyss of the strangest kind. If you have read my beloved works before you know the dangers, but for those few who are new I repeat the warning all the same. For in the weird and shadowed recesses of my mind I dip my quill to weave you stories you are not meant to understand. Should the darkness of my soul spread from quill to paper to the picture in your head you may find yourself lost without a guide in the not-quite fires of Tartarus or beyond.

Can you find your way between the speckled stars filled with hope once lost?
Can you travel that frigid void in-between them?
Can you escape the twilight's glare of deathly red?
And -- most importantly -- can you dare to even try?
-Beloved Craft


Not much to say. I started reading Lovecraft recently and thought some dark short stories would be good practice when I'm not in the proper mindset for my other stories.

It is very loosely related to my other story dC/dt ≠ 0, but not in a way that you need to read one or the other. Unlike dC/dt ≠ 0, only the foreword is true in any way for the dC/dt universe. Except for the foreword, all the other short stories are just fictional pieces written by a fictional author in a fictional setting.

"I asked a changeling once why they would think peace with Equestria was possible. Their response was the title to this book. I had asked a question on politics and gotten a calculus equation in response. Changelings are odd like that sometimes. They see things differently than the rest of us. I ended up pondering his response for a long time and even dusted off my old calculus books to look for an answer. One day it just clicked in my head what he was trying to say.

Changelings are capable of change.

It was a somewhat redundant answer, and it was a really bizarre way to give it, but I understood what he meant. Changelings, just like ponies, are capable of both good and bad, We could make peace with them, and help them learn to better themselves. That was what the changelings wanted, and ponies everywhere were fighting it. It is for that reason I began creating this book. Within this tome you will find a collection of essays, more like candid stories really, directly from Princess Twilight Sparkle, the Princess of Friendship, and Prince Morpheus, leader of the Changeling Hive. These reports detail their lives from the day negotiations began. That is the day the Prince himself began living in Ponyville, and it comes with the story of how he and the little town came to adapt to each other as negotiations were occurring. It is my hope seeing their story will show anypony reading this there is no reason to distrust the changelings so, and, perhaps, it will give you insight into the strange little changelings as well. They truly want peace, and, despite the treaties being signed, we can only truly give it to them when we let go of our distrust."
