Queen Brising by Valkyrie-Girl Queen Brising by Valkyrie-Girl
Oh gosh it's been a long time since I posted anything! I am sorry my dear watchers. There is no excuse other than that life is a jerk. Anywho, on to pony!

Here we have yet another Valkyrie pony. Brising Farseer is the Valkyrie Queen during the Successors era of my personal pony timeline headcanon thingy. She takes the throne about a year after Aurora and Corona become Princesses of Equestria so she and them are something of kindred spirits in that they all have a hard time getting used to their sudden royal status. Though Brising enjoyed the good favor of her predecessor, Queen Etta Gnarlmane, she was not at all expecting that she would be named queen after Etta's unexpected passing.

One of the reasons Brising was so surprised at being named queen was that she is blind, an extremely rare occurance among a race that hardly ever suffers from illness or infirmity. For many years she stumbled through life feeling pitied and useless until she was about 30 years old when, gradually, she discovered and extremely unique ability; she can use storms to see. Where ever storm clouds gather and rain begins to fall, she can see that part of the world as though she were looking down from the clouds. There has been no other Valkyrie in known history with such and ability. She calls this power the Eye of the Storm.

While her power is unique and useful it was not the reason she was named queen. Before she passed Queen Etta spoke to the Elder Council about who should succeed her and she nominated Brising, speaking very highly of her kindness, generosity and strength of character. It matter very little to her that Brising would never be a powerful warrior. The Valkyria had seen enough warrior queens and she felt it was time for a change and the council agreed with her unanimously.

Brising struggled at first but with the help of Aurora and Corona and the faith of her people she is well on her way to becoming a legendary Valkyrie queen.

Fun fact: Apparently all Valkyrie queens must have GLORIOUS MANES.

Her blindness obviously prevents her from seeing how beautiful a mare she is if she stood in front of a reflective surface.

The mane is good, but I don't know... glorious might be a stretch. ;)

It's glorious and you know it.

Awesome design, and a really compelling backstory to boot.  A blind, peaceful queen of a proud warrior race - must be a strange situation for her.  But having a GLORIOUS MANE probably makes things better.

It is a bit strange for her , especially since she was not expecting to named queen after Etta at all. Completely unexpected. But she has many friends and supporters and she gets a few helpful tips from a couple of princesses who are pretty familiar with suddenly becoming royalty. And yes, having a GLORIOUS MANE makes any situation at least 10 times better.

Very nice!


I'm glad you're back. I figured there'd be problems (what with the move and all) but now you're back with us and good times can be had by all! *cheers*
