When Duchess Chrysalis, the patron of love, learns about the grim fate of King Sombra from the newly reformed Royal Sisters, she refuses to stand idly by as the beloved ruler of Equestria's mirror reality remains in the clutches of dark magic. But a challenging quest cannot be accomplished alone, so she enlists the aid of certain brave heroes. Can the dark forces that hold control over King Sombra be dispelled once and for all or was his sacrifice truly ultimate?

I find the designs of the alternate Celestia and Luna intriguing. While their evil selves definitely had a bit of a vampire/Maleficent theme going on, their good versions seem much more inspired by ancient greek and egyptian fashion respectivaly, as opposed to the original Tia and Luna, who are just archetypical royalty

Wait... is that discord (or Sir Discord) in the first panel? A draconequus of order instead of chaos?

It’s possible.

Woah. Chrysalis looks very different when she is a good guy.

Alright, I'm gonna be honest: I miss ol' cheese legs. Preferred the original changelings, really.

Lovely art style! I like alt!Luna's design here. Is that how she looks in the official comic? She seems to have a Greek/Roman-esque design, while Celestia looks Ancient Egyptian. I've only heard about the story this is 'continued' from on the MLP Wiki, but I think it's interesting. I'm definitely reading the rest of this. Thanks for sharing this with us! ^_^

This is really good. I love it when people create mirror versions of a story and dive even deeper.

Poor Chrysalis, she really looks up to Sombra and has so much faith in him!

Saw you on EQD and this is a great concept, I lovelovelove Egyptian Celestia/Amon-Ra!  Great idea to continue the most intriguing story line in the comics, and the art is lovely.

Interesting. Wonder how the rest plays out.
Why exactly royal sisters are ruling again? Pretty obvious they have no intentions of saving Sombra as they would loose their royal status upon his return.

Now we know that Chrysalis is plant/insect/pony lifeform. :)

This Chrysalis can't reconcile her loss, lets her grief consume her and twists and her mind, soul, and body and becomes a major threat. Rather than destroy her, she is banished through a magic portal. This magic portal leads to another Ponyverse we all know about. It is here that Chrysalis becomes the Queen of the Changlings.

Took me a moment to realize this has to do with the alt world noted in the comics... very nice.
