The Tyranny of King Armour by Checkmate-the-Pony The Tyranny of King Armour by Checkmate-the-Pony
Exploring a future in which Shining Armour goes mad with unlimited power, the Alicorn Amulet swelling his magical abilities to unimaginable heights. Now he rules as the tyrannical King of the Crystal Empire, and waged a devastating war that brought down the kingdom of Equestria.

Lobotomizing the Royal sisters and burning the bearers of the elements of harmony.

With the exception of his beloved sister, spearing her life out of brotherly love

Now truly alone, Twilight Sparkle must find a way to dethrone King Armour at any cost if she is to save the world from a nightmare future of endless war.

This is truly an amazing picture

It would be an honor if you would allow me to write a story based on this picture, and using the picture itself as cover-art. Once I am finished with the first chapter, I will immediately send you a link.

You aren't the first one to come and ask me this...

Problem is none of those claiming that they would write it has ever told me how the process whent.

I'll give you just as much freedom as they had.

You can use it as long as you actully tell me when and where you become famous, beacuse I'd like to be credited for the cover atleast.

makes me wonder what happend to all those other poeple that promised me the same thing.

The process is simple really.

I write a story based on your art, which is again amazing, and I have a hyperlink in the description leading to the page featuring the art along with yours.

I'll be publishing the story on as "The Tyranny of King Armour" and you can search me up as "Maverick Hunter". I'll send you a message on DeviantArt when I actually publish the story and chapters.

Some people forget, others just give up. I, on the other hand, do neither. I always get inspiration to write, even if the story is one from a while back.

If you want, I can take a screen shot and I show you what I mean. I'd just need your email so I can send it to you.

A screen shot? of your writing?

Well anyway you can use it, as I mentioned to many I made this picture spicificly for this reason

To make the picture write the story for me, and the weiver would get so upset that it wasent more than just a picture.

And inspire the likes of you. I'll be happy to see your work in the future

I do want to make more pictures like this, but my vacation I was sappose to use for drawing, turned into a vacation rutting instead.

This is exactly how I envision the Season 4 opener, except Twilight her friends were not killed, they were imprisoned with Cadence, and another pony (Zero the Guardian of The Crystal Empire to be more specific) was banished to the arctic.

*Twilight and her friends I mean.

Indeed. :)
