Description:

When one gets corrupted, it’s a Nightmare. When all four of them go, it’s the beginning of the Apocalypse.
Based more on the Biblical verses than common interpretations, Celestia is the white horse of Conquest, Luna is the black horse of Famine, Cadance is the red horse of War and Twilight is the pale horse of Death.

You could interpret that there’s a 5th horseman & include one more character

Celestia: of course; conquest is something evil Celestia is known to go for in common fanon.
 
Luna: considering what the logical ending of the Eternal Night without any sort of spellwork to keep the flora and fauna alive would be, famine is not inaccurate.
 
Cadance: War is usually born of hate.
 
Twilight: Do any of us have any idea what Twilight’s truly capable of at this point? If she were to put all of her resolve into killing someone?

Biblically, Conquest is an outside invader coming to take over, while War is a cause of conflict between people. It’s easier to think of War as Hate.  
In pony terms, think of it like Sombra or Tirek compared to Discord.

Beautiful image and quite accurate rendition of the words of the Book of Revelation, Ch. 6: “The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair […] The stars of the sky fell to the earth, like a fig tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind.”

Someone once commented on FIMfiction that Scootaloo is like a cockroach when it comes to FIMfiction apocalypse scenarios, she’s nearly impossible to kill and typically only goes of her own free will for a greater good.
 
In this case, the Princesses of the Apocalypse will be less a speed bump for her and more her greatest challenge.

Nice eclipse in the background. Really frames the “end times” vibe.
 
I can only imagine that Discord, Tirek, Chrysalis, and Starlight Glimmer or Trixie are facing off against them off-panel.

Hey, thanks for the recommendation. I’ll check it out.
 
I think that pulling this sort of thing is a lot easier on written material because it’s easier to pull the right strings with the reader (at least for me… Written material tends to be much more powerful).

Yeah… Uh… Girls…
 
Celestia, no one takes you seriously anymore. Bring it down before you hurt yourself.  
Cadance… You’re pink. You don’t look intimidating.  
Twilight… I know you’re supposed to be Death, but… A scythe? Skull? Bones? You’re trying so hard it’s cute.  
Luna, go call your therapist.
 
Nutcases…
