Vs. The Everfree Witch by Valkyrie-Girl Vs. The Everfree Witch by Valkyrie-Girl
Aurora's on her own this time. And things are goin' down!

Foals are going missing in Ponyville and it's up to the princesses to find out what's gong on! After some investigating, they discover that Somnamula, a former researcher from the Arcane University in Caterlot who has been missing for some time, is behind the foalnappings. Using the hypnotic song of the bird Kyrie, she's been luring colts and fillies into the forest. But that is only the beginning. Where the foals are taken after that remains a mystery. One that Aurora intends to make Somnabula unravel for them.

So after reliving my childhood by watching a few episodes of G1 My Little Pony I've discovered that it's actually quite a good source for villains. I took the character Somnambula from the episode of the same name. Of course Sommy was a human witch in episode. I changed her into a unicorn for obvious reasons. Kyrie the hypnobird and some of the plot were also adapted.

"Where the foals are taken after that remains a mystery"

When will this mystery be solved, pray tell?

Fun Fact: The name "Somnambula" is derived from the term "Somnambulist" or "Somnambulism" which means--Sleep Walking/Walker.

I did actually know that! Which makes the name and the character (both the original G1 villain and my G4 re-vamp) that much cooler!

I love the idea of adapting old villains into new ones. And this background style is really interesting!

Why not adapt them I say. They have so much potential!

As to the background it's just something I'm experimenting with. I'll probably end up doing some more like this in the near future.

Why does the witch remind me of Lust from FMA?

Intriguing story! I'll admit, I've never seen any of the earlier gens nor do I have any serious desire to, but this looks like a pretty cool adaptation. I'm really liking Aurora and Corona, too - you seem to have some really neat ideas for them, and I look forward to whatever's next.

A couple of the old episodes a worth a watch actually such as the original pilot "Escape from Midnight Castle", "Somnabula" and "The Return of Tambelon". Of course that may just be nostalgia talking.

As usual, it's so good to know that people enjoy my silliness so thank you!

Would it be okay with you if (eventually, once you've really fleshed out their characters) I tried my hand at writing a fanfic about Aurora and Corona? I wouldn't be able to start on it anytime soon, but I wanted to get the go-ahead from you before I gave it any further thought.

You would really want to do that? I am so hugely flattered. You have no idea.

I would love it if you did that. It would be amazing actually. I do actually have a basic plot line in the works. If you wanted to work together on it together in the future that would be great.

Again, this is a giant compliment. Thank you!
