In an alternate universe far, far away from MLP:FiM’s canon, King Sombra leverages some basic degree of sentience and hides the Crystal Heart somewhere that wouldn’t be in plain sight of any Pegasus flying over the Empire. Much to poor Twilight’s dismay, the foggy black shadow king has hidden the relic so well that she’s unable to locate it in a timely fashion. Frustrated, stressed out, and desperate, Twilight decides to utilize her super secret "Plan B" as a last minute attempt to tap into the hidden power of the Crystal Ponies. Though her plan is clearly working, Sombra has somehow managed to slip through the protective border around the empire and continue his Mexican themed evil crystal shenanigans within the city. Will Twilight be able to put a stop to Sombra’s wacky one-liner dialogue and general skullduggery?
Probably not If she gets all of her friends to blow raspberries on the Crystal ponies’ stomachs, then maybe.
You know, an odd bit of headcanon I was playing around with the other day; what if Sombra just didn’t speak Equestrian (or English; ponyspeak? Whatever language they use in Equestria) very fluently, hence his general inability to speak in sentences longer than 3-5 words? I mean, the name ‘Sombra’ is Spanish (for shadow), so maybe his native tongue is something similar? I know that there are other languages in the FiM universe (like that stuff that Zecora was spouting out in Bridle Gossip), so who knows…
Just a fun pic I did up for a friend that needed to see some more Wheaties (the Crystal pony being tickled mercilessly by Pinkie’s buzzing lips). He gave me free reign over everything else, so I decided to dick around with a sombrero toting Sombra rolling down main street in the Crystal Empire. I had no idea how detailed some of the Crystal Empire buildings got… really, the crystal empire episodes have a lot of awesome BG artwork. I think it takes pausing the episodes to really appreciate and absorb all that work sometimes. It’s beautiful stuff. Kudos to the designers on that (and Canterlot as well). All the BGs are pretty good, but the cities/castles seem to be far more detailed than anything else.
Anyways, enough of my ramblin’ for now. It always feels good to get more pones put up. Hopefully I’ll have more for you guys soon. Until that time, I recommend that you keep it classy, ponefriends.
