Of Kings and Changelings - Page 1 by Gray--Day Of Kings and Changelings - Page 1 by Gray--Day
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

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! ^_^

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.

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.

Also, Star Swirl would be voiced by either Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen, Mirror Sombra by Viggo Mortensen or Richard Armitage, and Evil Sombra by Benedict Cumberbatch

I just rewatched the scene and they actually said Distant Land.
Maybe I heard Other World, because I had trouble wrapping my head around the idea magic stealing creatures can exist in a world absolutely everything runs on magic.

I know it is a bit late to reply, (I'm almost certain) this comic takes place after the events of the Reflections arc of the official comic series. You will understand much more of what is going on if you read those.

Celestia is dressed similar to Ra, or Egyptian culture in general, because Ra was the diety of the sun, like Celestia.

As for Luna, I'm sure it's a similar reason but with some other culture, and having relation to the moon.

Luna's clothing looks greek, so I guess it is based on Nyx.
