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


Beware the Queen of Rage and Wrath.
For deadly are her many ploys.
And little pity is in her heart.
As her rage consumes and wrath destroys.

So sung the ancient Saddle Arabian bards of their nations most dangerous enemy. Queen Rabia of the Dark Pony Empire. Ever did she match wits and force with their old kings until her surprising demise, leaving her daughter Ira on the throne. Then the ancient Saddle Arabians finally invaded, destroyed their ancient enemies and executed the Last Queen. But Rabia had another child, the mysterious Lost Son who disappeared from her court before these events.

King Sombra, former tyrant of the Crystal Empire, the Shadow King. Lost Son of Queen Rabia. Exiled in his first defeat, killed in the second, fled into hiding in the third and finally captured the fourth time and sent to Tartarus. He would probably be rotting there along with Lord Tirek if there wasn't just one problem.

In his fourth defeat, his mother Queen Rabia unexpectedly returned. Promising the destruction of modern Saddle Arabia for what their ancestors did. The Saddle Arabians call the destruction of the Dark Pony Empire and the execution of the Last Queen their Great Shame, but the Queen of Rage and Wrath does not care.

For the destruction of her empire, they will face the Rage of a Queen.

For the execution of her daughter, they will face the Wrath of a Mother.

Saddle Arabia's hope may lie in the absolute unlikeliest source. The Tyrant of Fear and Hate. Who doesn't particularly like them much either.

King Sombra actively destroyed records about the Crystal Empire before his reign. Princess Cadance has slowly been reverting that destruction and has reached a point where only one question remains. How did King Sombra come to power in the Crystal Empire? Records are silent on that one.

It's fortunate then that during recent events, King Sombra himself was captured and locked up in Tartarus. So it should be a simple matter to go there and ask him. That's at least what Princess Cadance and Shining Armor think.

It turns out King Sombra knows quite a bit more than the royal couple realized. He knows where Princess Cadance came from.

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 a sequel to The Brushie chase.


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.

In the end, sometimes the sunny ones need help chasing those dark clouds away.


Written in memory of my sister who passed away in summer 2013, who served as the inspiration for my pegasi sisters, Dew Doe and Foxy Stripes.

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.

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.
