Here it is! The long-heralded, long-awaited culmination of Iron Mare, Lancer, and so many other short stories!

The Crusaders!

Edit: I touched up Doctor Doom's features after a... certain season premier was watched.

Edit: by the way, the awesome cover art was done by the most awesome [link] who was nice enough to let me use it. Go check him out!

You're a big fan of Tom Hiddleston, aren't you?

How could you tell?

He's a very good actor.

Well... Didn't see the last part comming... Heh... Comming.

Anyway, it was a great chapter. Really like you already used a character from Spider-Mare. But didn't like the ending. Not because it was badly written, but because i really like the character.

With that said, looking forward to see this story unfold from my throne in the north.

Okie dokie lokie!

By the way, what did you think of the season premier?
Shadowchilly's avatar
Epic! But Sombra needed more screen time... Way more screen time...
The animation got better, i really like the humor as always and it looks like they already made a hint to something big happening at the end of the season, like they did with the gala in season 1. Only 13 episodes, but i think they are going to be worth the wait!

And Pinkie got more random, i really really like!

You know, thinking about it from a story perspective, I'm not so sure Sombra precisely NEEDED more screentime. He was a different kind of villain than any we've gotten in the past. He was more a threatening presence, a danger that had to be stopped before it started because, if it did start, it would already be too late. Like Sauron, from The Lord of the Rings.

Overall, Sombra's my new favorite MLP villain. Even without the staggering power of Nightmare Moon or Discord, or an army supporting him like Queen Chrysalis, he came closer to victory than any of them through intelligence and planning. Literally the only reason he lost was because Spike insisted on going with Twilight to find the Crystal Heart.

But anyway, Sombra's awesome... and as for this story, well....

???? What the- out of everyone I did not expect for THEM to die. Great start.

Solaris90Hobbyist Writer
Them? Who's them?
EcamMace's avatar
I said 'them' because I didn't want to spoil the identity of who died for anyone silly enough to read the comments before the chapter. We really need a gender neutral pronoun other than 'it'

Everyone! From now on 'che' shall refer to an individual of indeterminate gender!

Oh, my. You play hardball, don't you? No slow pitch, here, sir!! Me. LIKEY!!

Solaris90Hobbyist Writer
Thank you! :D Yeah, it was hard killing off a character I myself had created, but it had to happen.

So, anything stick out to you? Anything that might lead to future events?

Well, for starters, her AI has a name that concerns me to an extent.

Heh. I keep remembering the scene in the parody of Civil War that leaned on Clor's programming:

10 SMITE!!!
20 GOTO 10.
Solaris90's avatar
Solaris90Hobbyist Writer
Ah yes, Ultron. An under-appreciated supervillain, in my opinion. We'll see how that develops.

Also, Civil War parody?
