Son of Chaos Chapter 5: A monster, am I?
Draco continued to watch the scene unfolding before him- with those two angelical mares in his domain. Little Luna was splashing and laughing as, coincidentally, he had done countless times before. Celestia, on the other hand, simply sat and observed her sister.
“Come on, the water´s great! You have to try it!” Luna said, laughing.
“I´ve already told you that if we´re wet when we return home, they’ll realize where we´ve been. And we´ll be in big trouble,” Celestia replied. “I don´t want to be blamed.”
Luna submerged her head in the lake and proceeded to spit the water into the air, imitating a fountain. She then repeated the action, this time spitting toward her sister in a playful manner. Celestia jumped back to avoid Luna’s line of fire and shot her an annoyed glance. Luna answered her gaze with an innocent smile.
“You´re too serious, sister. Why don´t you try to have some fun? At th
Son of Chaos Chapter 1: Auguries -Not edited yet-Twenty years had passed since Equestria’s foundation. In those years, cities started to grow and the population had undertaken a relatively prosperous life; at least better than what they had experienced in their previously nameless home. Pegasi were in charge of the weather, earth ponies cultivated food for everyone who required it, and unicorns had been assigned the most important commitment; the rise and descent of the Sun and the Moon, which sustained the life on the complete planet. Thus, when the time to decide who would govern their land with both care and rigor, the three races representatives reunited, still deeply attached by the bounds which had been born in that cave the unforgettable day in which harmony among the pony kind was brought back to life. After a serene deliberation, the following conclusions were reached. The domain over the land would be executed by the unicorns, with the then Queen Platinum on head. The defense of the kingdom would be assigned to the fi
Son of Chaos Chapter 4: A last ray of hope
Two years. That was all the time Draco had needed to become an animal.
The forest was now his home: the only secure place for him. But even there it seemed that its inhabitants knew his past. Even within the monsters, he was rejected. In a sense, it served as his prison- like his house, but different. All the forest was his. Draco knew every last spot, every rock, every tree, where best places to hunt were, and where the best fruits grew.
Now there was nopony to talk to. In two years, he hadn´t spoken to anyone. In the rare occasion that words came from his mouth, he simply threw them to the air- just for the pleasure of hearing something other than an angry roar. Draco could only roar at his savage neighbors. After all, he had to look strong in order to show them who was the ruler. But even he, who was a considerably sanguinary beast, didn´t dare approach the limits of the forest which connected with the resplendent city of Canterlot.
From time to time, when Draco lay in t
Son of Chaos: Prologue
This tale I am going to tell began a long time ago, longer than what you could ever imagine. Before anything existed, even before this remote space we call universe, there were two entities, two siblings who spanned all trace of existence. Their names were Chaos and Harmony. They inhabited the limbo, a realm which did not know the significance of time and space, with each other as their only company. At first mistrustful, both divinities maintained the distance. But after millenniums of continuous silence, life was created, and that same instant was when they accepted their mutual presence, as for them it was understood that they were dependent on the other. Their union had been responsible for something marvelous, and that is why they concluded that they needed each other to survive, in fact, for their work to survive. This idea was not born even as a thought, but a mere instinct, an impulse neither of them could comprehend. And then, once combined the forces of order and chaos the un
Son of Chaos Chapter 3: Hellfire
In a dark place which had never seen the Sun, a strange being was prowling. The creature, composed of darkness itself, paced back and forth. He had been more patient previously, but that was only because he had Harmony as company. Now, completely alone in the darkness of his domain, patience escaped him. He was not at all prepared for being alone. Through all those millions of years before, he had his sister. Time moves much more quickly when you´re having fun; those centuries and millennia had passed like hours compared to the time he spent alone. Twenty years had passed since he last saw Harmony, and his sole driving purpose was to continue to watch his creation- a creation he was proud of. After all, the draconequus represented chaos itself, or, so he thought. Chaos hadn’t considered Grey Weather´s influence. He expected her to try to drown her son, after which Chaos would have saved him. The hate within Draco after being rejected by his own family would have
Son of Chaos Interlude: Whispered Promises
Here I stand, alone. Not as though this is anything new. Sad but true, isn’t it? But time mitigates the feeling, although a small part of it refuses to die. It´s like a burning wound—a bitter taste on your tongue that chooses to remain. I admit it, fighting it had always been futile; however, that did not dissuade my attempts. Such efforts would only ever meet failure, again and again, in a similar fashion to the disappointing conclusion of a book that, no matter how many times you read it, does not change. The ensuing despair corroded my soul just as rust devours even the purest metals. Because I remember—I was once pure. I am sure of it. An innocent infant in a cruel world, with but a single being to stop his fall… Until she disappeared. It´s curious, because since I returned from, well, wherever I’ve been, it’s become harder to remember. The features of her visage are now obscured, her voice is now distorted, and I can hardly reca
Son of Chaos Chapter 2: Happy Birthday Draco
After 15 years, things had changed considerably. For example, the prediction had continued to progress, and a second alicorn had born ten years after the first one. She was named Luna.
After ponies of the village went to Sun Pride´s home to learn if his son had been born, Sun Pride told them that the baby had born the previous night. And as it was predicted, he was a monster, so he decided to drown him. He also explained that the death of the baby had unsettled Grey Weather´s mind, and she had left home. That explanation fit very well with Grey Weather´s behavior. She was hardly ever seen by the village anymore. The few times they could see her were when she went to the market to buy food. Thus, the fame of her insanity continued to grow.
However, her unusual behavior was the result of another thing entirely. Grey Weather was spending all her time at the abandoned house taking care of Draco. He had grown up a lot; although he was only fifteen, he was already taller th
Son of Chaos Chapter 6: The birth of the beast
The icy cold of the lake water sent chills resonating through every last nerve in Draco´s body. As he sank deeper and deeper, he felt the pressure grow stronger against his body. Draco began feeling sharp pains all across his body within the first 30 meters of his plunge. Keeping his eyes closed, he attempted to recall a joyful memory; he wanted something pleasant to carry with him to wherever he was going.
Draco had never given much thought to what came after life, but as he neared its edge, he couldn´t help but to feel some curiosity. Maybe it would be a peaceful rest after a life of suffering; perhaps the afterlife would be filled with an eternity of torment and pain- even more tortuous that the life he had just ended. Or maybe what followed was nothing except the cold embrace of darkness as farewell. The only sure thing was the slow death beforehand.
It wasn´t nearly as fast as he thought it would be. Draco soon came to regret his days of training to increase his
