This story is a sequel to Possession in the Crystal Empire


When he returned to life and escaped from his enemies after possessing Private Iceland. King Sombra seemed to drop off the radar, only leaving vague sightings and hints of where he might be. So what was the former tyrant of the Crystal Empire doing before he struck again?

Sulking in a corner? Cooking up wild revenge schemes in a dark cave? Terrorizing the wilderness and any unlucky passerby? Gambling and living in luxury in Las Pegasus?

This story lightly touches on some of the things he was up to between his resurrection and his eventual return.


Special disclaimer: Mild implication of sex in the early part. Dark tag also on because of some mild dark elements.


This story is part of The Equestria Tales series.

Side-story in "Return of The Dark Ponies" story arc.

This story happens between the events of Possession in the Crystal Empire and The Last of the Dark Ponies, around mid season 5. It's not strictly necessary to have read either story.

Hail King Sombra provided some additional insight on the story and helped me with the tags.

Foxy Stripes is on the outside a sunny mare, who likes bringing sunshine to those who are down, lift their spirit and chase those gloomy clouds away. She's a caring mother and a supportive friend who will go out of her way to help.

Yet she carries a burden not many get to see, a pain she carefully hides, preconception that constantly torments her.

Junebug has been living a fairly content life in Ponyville, raising her only son Cooper. She's avoided telling anyone who the father is, even Cooper because of the painful memories associated with his father, Barricade.

But she's begun to hear stories that Barricade has changed, that he's a different pony now. Yet, Junebug just can't work up any nerve to confirm them. Too scared to see if there is any truth to them. Then the mail arrives and she learns that the stallion she fears, may know exactly where she and her son live.

Junebug has to decide whether she faces her fears once and for all, or just hope nothing will come from this.


Part 1 of a duology called The Sons of Barricade.

This story is a sequel to The Last of the Dark Ponies


Tirek waits eagerly for his plans to come to fruition. The magic is draining from Equestria, his protégé had followed his advice to the letter. Soon his enemies would come and be just as trapped as he is in Tartarus.

But he wasn't alone in watching his plan unfold. His fellow inmate was also watching, being neither helpful nor as eager as him to see their enemies coming soon. If anything, King Sombra does not believe in the plan at all. Well Tirek would show him.


A mildly alternate version of the Tartarus scenes from School Raze, since in the Last of the Dark Ponies, Sombra was imprisoned in Tartarus. Marked as a sequel though it's more of a short follow up on his imprisonment.

This story is a sequel to Possession in the Crystal Empire


Private Iceland is recovering from his ordeal at the hooves of King Sombra, who possessed him and caused his current injuries. He still suffers nightmares and has trouble sleeping. He also longs for his favorite breakfast, pancakes. The dull tasting hospital food is not helping with that at all.

However, is he safe? Is he truly free from the pony that tormented him and his brother? He is in the middle of the Crystal Empire, with an active Crystal Heart, plenty of guards and an alicorn princess nearby. Is that enough to stop a very unscheduled, unexpected, unwanted visit? Especially if it's off hours?

A certain evil overlord doesn't think so.
