The Alicorns by DragonwolfRooke The Alicorns by DragonwolfRooke
This could be considered a sort of prelude to that one fanfiction idea I had, about the time when Discord ruled Equestria. This would be the history of the alicorns.

They weren't always immortal. Once, they were just a race of powerful unicorns. But then a great and terrible magic was discovered - the magic that could change a unicorn, and put them beyond the touch of time...Truly an amazing feat, the greatest magic ever discovered. But when the rich and powerful could live forever, and the rest were doomed to die...that magic became the catalyst of a great war. Tyrants and armies without end waged a war for the secret of everlasting life. And in the end, all perished.

Except for two young mares, left in the ashes of a once great kingdom.


Came up with this when I was thinking about the season finale, and how a particular unicorn managed to turn herself into an alicorn, after Celestia's careful tutelage. I'd think that this sort of magic could cause problems, if it fell into the wrong hooves...perhaps a certain tyrant king attempted to recreate the spells himself, and thus forced himself into an existence of smoke and stone...

When the prize is immortality and supreme power, everyone would want a piece of it.

And that's why the only winning move is not to play, in that case.

Aye. Some things are better not reached.

By the way, saw the small update in that Dragon RP?

Oh, that. Yeah, I got into one with SomeRandomMinion sometime earlier, minor drabbles, did it for fun when I took breaks from working on my metric tonne of schoolwork. (Gotta relax SOMEHOW).

"Small" update? :lol:
I saw it, alright--excellent "Big Damn Heroes" moment by the Changeling airships!

Though given that two didn't make it, things are gonna get rough for the bugs pretty soon--especially since Celly and Cadence are bound to be...less than pleased with the crews they just yanked out of the sky. Not to mention Luna showing up, AND Twilight entering the mix...

"A People" as in a race of people, a kingdom of people. People, persons, they mean sentient beings and not necessarily humans.

It would be interesting to see you tie in ideas from this: [link] especially if you're of a mind to buy into the theory that Discord is Starswirl.

I see that story alot of Discord liking Celistia

I probably won't, since in my story Starswirl would probably be a later unicorn who tried to recreate the spells to become an alicorn, but it didn't quite work for him. I dunno.
