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.

I always imagend the theme of Resident Evil 6 beacuse it reminds you of some cool movie.

Funny enourgh tons of people have jumped at the chance to make this picture into a fanfic with my permission, but so far I don't think anyone has delivered

My wife even demanded that I write it myself, and I was like NOPE! The picture tells the story.

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 FiMfiction.net 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

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.

There's a DLC called the Tyranny of King Washington, which is basically a what if story where Connor has to fight an evil george washington who has a piece of eden. That's what this picture is based on.

No, Shining Armour keeps Cadance "safe" beacuse he loves her.

With all this power he can protect her.

Why does this remind me of fable 3? Especially the older sibling caring for younger while seemingly being evil?

And older brother being a tyrant ruling with the iron fist. When the younger sibling along with the siblings friend ask him to spare a few peasants who were protesting outside the castle he forces the later who should be executed the friend or the peasants or both if he doesn't choose in time in order to teach him a lesson.
Some lot later after younger sibling escapes and forms a rebellion he refuses to fight his younger sibling and surrenders after which we learn few extra things about why he has done all the things he did.
I know it's a small story spoiler but if anyone hadn't played the game yet, then I doubt they will play after this anyway as the games is old and not everyone likes it. I mostly played just to finish the storyline myself.
And now this picture and your description does remind me in a way of that game.

Kill him!


You mean forgive him. He is wearing the Alicorn amulet, he is insane for a reason, ofcourse the damage can't be undone and their relationships won't be the same ever.

But it would still be a gripping end beacuse I know Twilight would be able to forgive him (instead of just murder, that would solve nothing)

The only other character in The History of the World that is worse, and more overrated than Shining Armor is Elsa from Frozen.
