Legacy of the Sun - Chapter 6
Chapter 6: Discord
'Someday soon,' for an alicorn, ended up being one hundred years. It was at this time that the corruption spreading from that dark cave had reached the castle of the two sisters. In the past, they had both heard the terrible screeches and roars from various beasts within the forest, which had clearly seen the evil taint, and were now vicious and bloodthirsty creatures. Now, however, the first creeping, putrid looking vines moved past the treeline and encroached upon the land around the castle.
"Celestia..." Luna started, not knowing how to continue.
"I know, sister... I know..." the older alicorn replied, her mouth creased in a frown. She looked upon the forest with sadness, wondering how something so terrible could have happened to the forest she had known for hundreds if years. "It feels like it was merely a week ago when... father and I were exploring these woods..."
She wasn't able to think much past that when the distinct roar of a

Chapter 5: Guiding the Moon
The next few weeks were spent in silence, with only the occasional chirp of a bird or the light clopping of hooves through stone passageways. Only the necessary actions were performed: raise the sun, lower the moon, eat meals, lower the sun, raise the moon. Nothing else. No talking. No laughing. No playing. Only sorrow and sadness.
It wasn't until Luna confronted Celestia that the two sisters finally spoke to each other. She found her pink haired sibling staring out of a window at the top of the tower, her gaze lost in the horizon. Her magenta eyes, red around the edges from countless crying fits, looked in no particular direction. Celestia seemed lost in thought - and disconnected from reality.
"Celly..." Luna softly spoke, approaching her sister.
Celestia said nothing, continuing her vacant stare.
"...what is it?" she replied, motionlessly. The sun princess stood as still as a statue, and were it not for her lazily waving mane, might hav

Chapter 4: Ascension
Normally, it is a custom to celebrate the day of your birth, with either friends, family, or both, and rejoice in growing older and learning. It's generally a time of happiness, good will, and becoming closer with those around you, while you move onto a new chapter in your life. For the alicorn spouses, living in an old castle perched in the heart of the Everfree Forest, their day was anything but.
It was on this day that Sonance woke with a jolted feeling that surged through his divine form. Sonance removed himself from the bed, covered from head to hoof in a cold sweat. He was visibly pale, and as he looked to Rhapsody, noticed that she looked much the same - to the point of her typical glow nearly nonexistent.
"Sonance..." she started. The dark alicorn could see the tears forming in his wife's eyes. "It's time."
"Is it that day already?" he asked, in slightly louder than a whisper. "It seems like just moments ago I was watching little Luna

Chapter 3: Luna
Celestia paced around her room, looking down at the floor and lost in thought. Her pink mane flowed lightly behind her, floating lightly in the air. It was a change her parents were planning on, and they were enthralled to see it finally affecting her. Due to the latent magical power that alicorns' possessed, it tended to spillover into their manes and give it a distinctive flowing property. This motion only grew more intense as the alicorn aged, and increased in magical expertise. While Celestia's hair only gently moved as if it were laying in a small, trickling stream, Sonance and Rhapsody's hair flowed freely like a river.
The nature of her hair was the least of her worries right now, though, as the sun princess walked back and forth, awaiting news from her father. She had been tarrying about for six hours now, and was beginning to get worried. Did it take this long when she was born? Was Rhapsody okay? What would her sister look like? All thes
Legacy of the Sun - Chapter 2
Chapter 2: Learning Stages
Many years had passed since the world changing day that Celestia, heir to the throne of Equestria and bringer of the dawn, had been born. The Everfree forest had shown signs of it's continuing age, with many of it's trees growing closer to the bedroom of the castle. The forest was still vibrant and full of life, very similar to the young princess who grew up around it.
Celestia crouched in a small bush, peeking her eyes out at a butterfly which lazily flew to a flower. It slowly flapped it's wings as it landed, showing off its elegant patterns and colors. The princess licked her lips and bent her legs, before pouncing out of the brush at the insect. The small creature was smart enough to quickly move, however, and Celestia only manged to land in a flower bed and lose her balance, tumbling to the ground. She brought a hoof to her face and wiped a lock of pink hair out of her eyes before watching the butterfly make its way to a far off tr
Legacy of the Sun - Chapter 1
Chapter 1: A New Dawn
High in the sky, the brilliant sun shone above Equestria, casting it's soft rays across the high mountains, with their snowy peaks; the rolling plains, filled with wildflowers and streams; and the lush forests, with their exotic plant life and woodland creatures. One forest, however, was much more vast than the rest, and was positively brimming with color and life. Bright leaves hung from tree branches, swaying gently in the passing breeze. On the ground, wild plants grew in all shapes and sizes, from tall ones to short ones to vibrant ones which became picturesque in nature. Accompanying the varied flora was its extraordinary fauna, ranging from small, playful fairies to large, captivating sea serpents, and even the intimidating celestial beasts. All of the creatures lived their lives fully and peacefully, enjoying the safe and inviting atmosphere that the forest provided for them.

Little Miss It“Do you enjoy her company?”
That, Avadaci concluded, had been the extent of his grandfather’s kindness. Thank the stars he had broken his neck after a failed attempt to ascend the castle staircase. Not that many were privy to this information. The official listing on the cause of death involved something along the lines of falling in battle after slaying at least a dozen demons, although this was treated with quite a bit of skepticism by the general populace. Yet, interestingly enough, a decent portion of the locals believed a tale about the cannibals of Unkhtom devouring him whole.
Not that Avadaci really cared how his grandfather had died. He was just glad he was dead. And if he was glad his grandfather had died, Avadaci wondered, why did he have to attend his funeral? In fact, the whole kingdom was glad his grandfather had died. Why did they have to attend the funeral?
“Oh Avad,” proclaimed his mother, “obv
