my reaction to the last panel: u don't say? Meme Face You don't say?

they should have thought about the whole vampire thing before declaring a religous/satanic/FUBAR  war against the ponies... 

meh, they can beat the ponies. hit and run, guerrilla warfare, terrorism, surround tactics and most likely infiltrating the canterlot castle because lets be honest... its happened three times.

They can beat the ponies? That would be underestimating them. Severely.
As they also have the ability to strike back, and are not afraid to use it.

Sure, Canterlot Castle was infiltrated three times. So what? They're still standing.
And their enemies can be infiltrated too, by the way.
987tails's avatar
starters. they are still standing because A: cadence,armor n all did a love spell, B: twilight put the Harmony elements back, C: twilight n friends ended tirek, D: because starlite made a pretty good n bad plan which ended up infecting changlings with love.            soooooo 

the castle does get infiltrated but relies on a hair follicle to be saved.  and because celeste rellies too much on her "subjects'.            and not really the enemy can be infiltrated as easliy for example- the changlings are Very difficult because they can immitate ponies so well enough to predict them. in the end the castle is safe for now. but all it takes is a removal of that single follicle to doom the castle.

"A: cadence,armor n all did a love spell, B: twilight put the Harmony elements back, C: twilight n friends ended tirek, D: because starlite made a pretty good n bad plan which ended up infecting changlings with love."

Well, all of that doesn't sum up the entirety of what happened in Equestria,
as the country in question is several millenia old.


"the changlings are Very difficult because they can immitate ponies so well enough to predict them"

They can imitate the ponies, indeed. And since when a pony-made spell couldn't imitate a Changeling?
Since when Changeling aren't known well enough by ponies to be predicted?


By now, we all see that AtN cannon is quite different from TV show cannon, mainly because the former is much darker.

So it's only fair to say that, likewise, the way state-security matters - and Castle security - are handled in AtN Equestria is matching the threats the country faces.
After all, this Equestria has military orders of knights. Most likely other units, secret services,
and an entire state-security apparatus akin to the ones we have in our world.

So while we could argue that Celestia still, somehow, relies a bit too much on her subjects,
I'd say she's very, very far from being as vulnerable as you make her sound to be.

true. but honestly you can have a thousand persians and only 300 spartans and in the end the spartans win. equivelent to celeste's  and luna's army force and defence force in which they can have a ton of security, but are no match for the mind of a vampire who kills the generic soldiers like its assasin's creed. 

idk, i always think celeste would just take on the vamps herself rather than endanger useless guards who are good at standing on the hot-zone. that excludes derpy and other well trained ranks.

Well, you do raise a worthy point, though... I wouldn't go as far as saying that the standard Equestrian servicemember is
"Assassin's Creed-like murder material".

I mean, if they were that helpless, they wouldn't have held their grounds like they did,
since Equestria is still standing.

Now, as you imply... the regular trooper hasn't much to himself or herself besides training and bravery,
compared with an equally well-armed vampire enemy combattant.


"idk, i always think celeste would just take on the vamps herself rather than endanger useless guards who are good at standing on the hot-zone."

True. PonyStar said it, in the AtN World Guide.

I wonder what they have in terms of Special Forces and Secret Service, in Equestria.

"since equestria is still standing" um... how do you know that the guards were holding those grounds for how many years? again celeste took control of everything. she just needed the guards as a "force" and sign of power as well as messengers to allow her to do her job. 
ColonelBSacquet's avatar
"how do you know that the guards were holding those grounds for how many years?"

Well, Celestia needs to delegate, right?
Besides, as she stated, she's not invincible.

Whence the need of an Armed Force.

"Alright, so let me sum this sh*t up: We just became Equestria's public enemy #1, we lost a LOT of spare blood, and on top of that Luna is coming after us herself. Anyone got any ideas what we do now?"

"Grovel?"

"Good plan."
Vengeance doesn't matter. Just make sure Berry is their last victim. That's what really matters.
I don't like seeing myfavorite pony DJ not happy like that T_T.
Excellent story so far. Keep up the good work^^.
