A Somber Meeting by Omny87 A Somber Meeting by Omny87
The newly-crowned Princess Twilight Sparkle meets a dark foe from the past. Deals, dark magic and dangerous trope savviness ensues.

This is perhaps my longest, as well as my darkest,MLP comic yet. I know a lot of folks dislike King Sombra because of how little we know of him, but personally, I find that what little is known about him is pretty damn awesome. Obsession with crystals aside, Sombra is probably one of the most dangerous villains the Mane 6 has faced yet, only beating him at the last second through on-the-fly decision-making and pure, blind luck. Hopefully season four will flesh him out further.


On a side note, any comments about tentacle rape or "I've seen enough hentai blah de blah de blah" will be deleted. Yes, even if you add "jk" at the end or stop writing halfway to say "oh no I can't say that lol I'm so ironic". I'm saying this because I want to keep the number of meme-vomiting dipshits parroting the same joke over and over again to a minimum.


EDIT: Okay, over 1500 faves and 500 comments later, I'm going to answer a couple common questions:

Q: Will you continue this comic?
A: Probably not. Even before I sat down and first sketched it out, I had planned to keep the comic open-ended as it is now. I have no plans or ideas on how to continue this, because frankly, at the moment any attempts at coming up with a sequel will just seem forced. But who knows what the future holds? We'll see.

Q: Can I write a fanfic based off of this?
A: You certainly can, as long as you give me credit. Also once you do write it, send me a link! I'd love to read it.

With that said, thank you for all the faves and comments, especially the ones sparking friendly debate and insightful thoughts.

The way Sombra spoke reminded me of Lion King's Scar, the scar he now sports only reminds me of him more. He is pretty dangerous, opting to strangle Twilight instead of simply toying with her, but of course, he could simply break her wings, then her neck, but he didn't expect her to use dark magic to free herself and scar him, or perhaps he did so he could prove that they are not so different.

Oh please, Sombra... she has hooves, does that make her like you? You have a horn, does that make you similar to her?

"Well then. You won't mind if I introduce a PLOT TWIST!"


Good lord, that line is pure GENIUS! Is there a continuation of this?
