Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: Friend or Foe Cover by GatesMcCloud Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: Friend or Foe Cover by GatesMcCloud
Is a changeling a changeling if it chooses not to change?

A little short comic I'll be doing along side the main chapters to explain the plight of Queen Chrysalis, her daughter Phyrissus, and the Changelings as they fight to survive in the nightmare and how they acclimate to imperial life. Plus I want to show off more of the Imperial Capital (Ponyville) and the present timeline as the main chapters are more about starting from the beginning and moving forward at a very slow pace. Don't know if this will be a weekly or when I just happen to finish a page kind of thing.

Well, you know what they say. A changeling can't change its spots.

I don't know why they say that, to be honest. Changelings don't even have spots. They have cavities, but that's really not the same thing. Still, I assume it must mean something important, because they keep saying it.

live in the past- a time of separation and spite

or what the future is trying to be- a time of family and understanding where those words are not attached to strings...


and hopefully not further into the future where queens and hives are empirically tied via telepathy and biology to always serve and die for queen and hive regardless of third options...

Its a side comic. Technically its the only one set in the 'present' CMC 10k timeline. Numbered chapters are the ones that are ordered. Nonnumbered ones are side comics.

Well before I show, Do you like Crossovers? Also these are short stories so they don't follow a particular order

Heavily depends on what is crossed over and which what. I dunno care what it is really, if you wanna show me show me. Unless you have to set up a premise, then by all means set it up.

Just it readjusted and centered? Hmm... It is skewed, but I could toy around with it. I can see if I can put one out later tonight.

So here the Changelings are a species of individuals not a bunch of mindless drones and here they are living with the ponies? Sorry, I've just stumbled upon this picture, I'm not entirely sure the whole backstory.

First check out the first chapter of CMC 10k. Second, its them as a species. Those are drones on the poster there. Being a drone doesn't mean you're a mindless zombie. Just like any insect species, you're a nonreproducing worker in a caste system. Though the changelings are alittle different, mainly due to lack of info on the shows part.

Though that is all purely conjecture, I don't read the comics and I know Chrysalis shows up in them so they might of ironed out some of the details that I am not aware of.

Oh, okay. I just have my own interpreations of them.

As for the comics, I only really take them as semi-canon, meaning I'll have to take what they say as canon unless something different in the show comes up, which I will give precedence.
