Artist Desc

Thanks to a romantic rendezvous between two lovers in the royal gardens of
Canterlot, Chrysalis, managed to gain enough magic to free herself, Cozy Glow,
and Tirek from stone. However, rather than plotting to retake Equestria since
such a effort at that point would have been fruitless, the trio instead decided to
flee the kingdom together, with Tirek managing to steal a little magic along
the way. Not wanting anymore to do with Equestria or it's inhabitants,
they soon found themselves becoming wanderers; Nomads who roam from
place to place. But after some time, the three started to become accustomed
to one another in ways that they never thought before. And after many
trials, they slowly but surely began to realize just how valuable their
newly-found togetherness was. Though it was very difficult for them to
admit at first, they had indeed found friendship, it was simply something
that they had to discover for themselves. Today, the three travel around
together, sharing a deep bond, that can't be broken. And while things aren't
always perfect, it is definitely the start of a new beginning.

So I have this head-canon that Cozy Glow is actually an orphan, and that Chrysalis
and Tirek become the parents that she never had. I loved the three of them in
the finale, and I wanted to expand on their relationship a bit more.

I know it's rather late, but I also wanted to take this time to wish you all a Happy New Year,
and to thank you for all for the support that you have given me overtime. I started this page
last year back in May, the same month that I officially became a Brony. And let me just say that
it's been fun. I've been having a blast uploading and reading your comments. I want to thank
those of you who welcomed me into the fandom with open arms despite the series being well past
over. It truly means a lot. :D

Actually they can get away with reforming any of the trio since the whole "not everyone reformed" bit still stands given with what happened to Sombra, Storm King, Pony Of Shadows(minus Stygian part), etc.

u know its ok to not reform every single character in your story tho right

That doesn't mean that the heroes are any less hypocrits for not trying given previous examples.

so long that they thought she was actually well-intended and caring instead of power-hungry to the point of being too stubborn like in canon

Considering her words about about feeding her changelings in a Canterlot Wedding I'd say theres some truth about her well-intentionness at least when it comes to the changelings.

u know its ok to not reform every single character in your story tho right, like fanart like this is cute and maybe certain storylines would have been interesting to see for reforming characters but I think for example people looked at fanart of chrissy being a good mother so long that they thought she was actually well-intended and caring instead of power-hungry to the point of being too stubborn like in canon.

Sombra was a case of him dying due to an attack that was kind of made in self defence. It is similar to when Twilight faught Tirek. There was simply no opportunity to capture or try to reform him. Honestly, I blame that partially on Discord as he did send him into that situation when he could have kept him in line to reform him. The trio, by contrast were left depowered, detained and powerless. There was no need to do a big attack or stoning as it was safe to try and reform them. Heck, one of them was a normal filly.

Make no mistake though, I would have loved to see a good Sombra redemption story kind of like in Siege of the Chrystal Empire.

id say there worse because they learned how friendship feels and rejected friendship completely and still choose to be evil and never ever looked back.

The fact that they got that far in the first place shows that they do have the capability of both experiencing and enjoying friendship and the fact that they did it on their own shows more potential for them then any other past villain prior to them reforming or not. If anything, they looked fearful of what they were fearing.

The problem is that no villain will ever reform without proper help and this is especially true with two beings who got betrayed by people experiencing friendship and one kid with a skewed understanding of it and with those three feeding their villainy onto each other. Thats not helped by the fact that Discord was further egging them on when he could have just as easily tried to help them.

And I simply respondent by sayingt that it could have happened had they been given a second chance and help.

U know whats funny about people thinking they should have gotten a second chance or would have changed eventually is that they never bring up sombra who didnt even get a chance to experience friendship, id say there worse because they learned how friendship feels and rejected friendship completely and still choose to be evil and never ever looked back.

Discord's actions were just as bad as the trio's. Remember when Cozy only incapacitated those guards or when Tirek never killed anyone who he drained the magics of or when Chryssie only went for captures? And yes, it wasn't smooth sailing for Discord, but he at least had Fluttershy and later on, the rest of her friends were also willing to help him change. And the trio came far after Discord so by then, they would have learned that people can change with help and the proper chance.

Given how hard it was for them to give discord a chance its unlikely they would do it to the trio in the finale unless they apologized themselves.

Yet, they did and Discord never apologized when he was first released. In fact, I don't think he ever apologized for what he did a thousend years ago or in his debut episodes.

I mean yeah Discord could have just left thats why he got turned to stone again, but since his intented attacks didn't fall under attempted murder on the ponies, he was seen as being worthy of a chance. We also gotta remember It wasn't smooth sailing, they threatened to turn discord back and weren't friendly towards him. They have always been hardcore towards remorseless villains. Given how hard it was for them to give discord a chance its unlikely they would do it to the trio in the finale unless they apologized themselves.

They could have, but by that logic Discord could have simply left Equestria after his escape and not immedietly go back to doing what he did a thousend years ago. The fact of the matter is that no villain will ever change without the chance or proper help. This goes for both reformed and not reformed villains.

Ngl this is a cute pic and something that could have happened if they decided not to attack Equestria after taking grogar's magic

True. Even if we assume that Cozy and Tirek might give up, Chrysalis is far too unhinged for that. Maybe if they got out in a time where everyone they wanted to get revenge on is dead or in another dimention somehow.

They could be unconcious until then and the love sucking thing was something that Chrysalis quickly started doing before she was fully petrified.

At least I hope so.

I’m gonna cry this is so cute!! I ALWAYS loved the idea of them becoming a little found family together, just overall them finding peace and happiness with each other. I love this art work, the style, the effects on the leaves, heck, the clothing, the little braid on Chrysalis. It’s so cute, I love it. They look so peaceful and happiness and ;;; I’m so sad we never got to see them have a good ending in the show.
