Fight for Dominance by Vindhov Fight for Dominance by Vindhov
Will update with an actual short story later, don't really have the time nor the energy now so you get the summarized version. 




After seeing how Chrysalis ran her hive he quickly deemed her too weak and her efforts to rebuild the hive too ineffective. 
This lead to him ultimately challanging her for dominance over the hive (a tradition the changelings have to make sure only the strongest can rule) No magic allowed only brute force. One cannot decline one of these challanges as that may lead to losing the respect of your followers, so of course Chrysalis accepted. 

Angel had the upper hand from the start and Chrysalis quickly knew she wasn't going to make it out alive if she didn't think of something and fast. 

Part of typical changeling magic is that they have some mind altering and min reading abilities. This makes them able to immitate creatures that their prey is familiar with. (like say one was chasing a foal and could look into their mind and see how their mother looks and take her form to lure them) 
Chrysalis used her powers to dig up an old buried memory of Fluttershy (angel's adoptive mother) 

This stops Angel in his tracks as it triggered something within him that made him hesitate. 
Swift to take advantage to this Chrysalis kicked him in the jaw and fled far away from the hive. 

Enraged Angel vowed to come after her and to make it his top priority to overtake the pony lands. Changelings would rise to the top and none of his factured and distracting memory would be left.

This is canon ☺
Technically it happened in both universes only that in the AU Chrysalis never managed to escape and instead got killed. 

Everything that is part of the AU will have AU infront of the title so to make it easier to know what is part of what universe ^^

Can you redraw this green blood, because I think green blood suits changelings better that regular red blood.

No i will not, I like the blood to be blood colored.

So... a species whose entire existence is based in subterfuge, deception, the unknowing willingness of their hosts and whose physical attributes are relatively nonexistent (remember they got evisc$erated during the canterlot wedding by a farmer, a academic albeit a powerful one, a vet, a tailor, Dash, and a baker whose 50% by body weight) manage to militarily overwhelm unicorns, pegasus, and alicorn might, assume control over the sun and moon, and defend against any and all threats from abroad be they allies, those who would be pissed their own safety was at risk. or those who view the ensuing chaos of the war this would bring as a golden opportunity to take the lands for themselves, and do it all without first succumbing to famine

You know, I was thinking about maggots portal abilities and was curious if he could create a portal inside someone's chest and rip out their organs to kill them quickly.

Never really thought about it, but I'm gonna say no.
He can only make portals in thin air and not inside organic matter.

What about the changeling power to read minds, could they just use it to find secrets instead of just finding what forms to take.
Reply

Vindhov Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Their mind reading thing is pretty limited to only seeing faces and some small snippets of what their personality is like. 
They can get to know how their victim knows certain ponies but not much more than that.

Wanted to bring up something on one of your other picture on the chAracters talents,
what exactly is silver linings and how did she earn it?

Also did rainbow name her silver lining since she was the only good thing that came from what wind rider did to her?

Vindhov Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
the reason why I havent answered is because i'm tryng to figure out exactly what her talent is myself. Tbh I kinda rushed it so I need to come up with something simpler I think. 

Yeah :)

Nautilus18 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2017
Yeah, I can tell it's really hard to come up with something that will effect the story.
But if I might add to what it could be, it would be an ability to encourage others since she went through a hard life and help lead them to a better life.

Was he just shocked or did it really bring back a memory of fluttershy?
If he did, would he just think it was one of her tricks?
Reply
:iconvindhov:
Vindhov Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
All his memories are kind of fractured so sometimes he remembers snippets of stuff that has happened but not really any context to the situations and faces and such. 
So when he saw her it triggered some memories to surface but he doesn't remember why he recognizes her or why he doesn't want to harm that particular pony. 

He reasons that this is a major weakness and sees the only way to fix it is to sort of "kill his demons" (aka murder flutters and the rest of his family)

So much tension here ! I love your work on light and composition !
Could Chrysalis ask help to ponies now ? Because she's in a deep sh*t. I don't know if that can be an interesting development.

I've planned for her to actually go to Canterlot and seek help in her own wierdly untactical way. Or atleast warn them so that they might have a chance to fight back.

So I guess using magic immediately disqualified Chrysalis? Obviously fleeing the duel would make it a forfeit, but just my observation.

Yeah, she lost either way. Fleeing was probably her best choice since Angel most likely would have executed her had he won fairly.
