It would, her having potentially the most excusable reason to be nasty, but it seems they're more addicted to a retardedly evil persona for shits and giggles, and sweep everything separating her from the average orc army under the rug.

Which, while paraphrased, is exactly what I was afraid they were gonna do.

Is it wrong that I really, really want to see Chrysalis get viewed in a sympathetic light finally happen? I find her much more interesting like that over being "evil just for the hell of it."

@Jarkes
Shows how much the comic writers "care" for any of the royals that aren't Twilight or Luna. (Even though I love them.)

So, the next Friends Forever sounds interesting… Pinkie x Celestia.

And it just occurred to me that Cadance has never appeared as one of the two characters of a Friends Forever issue, and Shining Armor hasn't been featured as one since #4.

@Villain Pony

Well, how much have we actually seen of her being smart vs an idiot?

She won her first invasion with strategic use of shape-shifting and successfully wiped out Timbucktoo.

After that we don't know everything she was up to, but she eventually invaded Trot with a trojan horse after shape-shifting didn't work.
She lost because of Celestia who was not only stronger than her, but also unknown to her.
With no time to prepare a plan, this fight was lost due to the element of surprise, not her stupidity.

She managed to trick the dragon that was going to eat them and escape into the wild for hundreds of years. Smooth talking + a bit of mind control.

Then she managed to sneak into Canterlot and kidnap Cadance undetected. Her act fooled everyone but Twilight, including Celestia. That doesn't sound dumb.

She did dismiss Cadance's efforts to restore Shining Armor with love as an "absolutely ridiculous sentiment", which is odd considering her own species does this on a regular basis. You could chalk it up to stupidity, but I prefer to think it's ignorance of how unicorn magic works. Especially considering that she asks Twilight to join her and give her magic lessons in issue 4.

Her plan in the comics worked smoothly until Twilight proved to be better at channeling the magic surge than her. Again, she either was too stupid to see this coming or was just unaware of how it would affect Twilight since she didn't study magic.

And in FIENDship, she tricks Twilight (the one pony who wasn't fooled by her Candance act) into letting her go. Her drone put on a better act than she did as Fake Cadance, but that is to be expected since she only had a short time to learn about Cadance, while the drone probably knows the Queen super well. Gotta give her props for her ruse.

@Villain Pony
As A Canterlot Wedding showed, just because Chrysalis is the leader of a race whose hat is deception doesn't mean she is good at it.

I think making Chrysalis over a thousand years old was detrimental to her character. Her mistakes could be more easily written away if she was a new queen.

It's gonna feel WEIRD seeing an issue with Andy Price's art with a story NOT written by Katie Cook. They're practically inseparable.

I meant changelings getting revenge.

And I liked them better when I could consider them an entire new threat, not another victim of Celestia's Under The Rug Syndrome.

@Anonycat
Brutal and edgy? Hardly. Celestia did only cosmetic damage to the changelings and banished them to a volcano. She could have and I'd argue should have done more considering this was immediately after the changelings had attacked a city.

@ice1517
Yeah but still the way the changelings got their holes are a bit contrived because that means that either they're ancient like chrysalis or they're born with their holes somehow.

And after a show of such force, locking them in a volcano.

Seems like a roundabout way of getting rid of them.

@ice1517
That entire part of the comic turns it into revenge for the changelings.

Okay, I guess.
Rather than the Changelings having holes because pew pew Celestia beam, what really pissed me off was Cook writing a Celestia willing to use such a brutal attack against a foe.
But again, Cook really goes out of her way to be edgy just for the sake of being edgy.

@PonyPon
We haven't seen how the Crystal Heart affects Changelings yet, but isn't it a weapon that converts happiness into evil-destroying magic? I don't think the Heart would be of any use to her, and Sombra will most likely want it to be destroyed.

Though the Crystal Ponies would be a feast for the Changelings, and make good slaves for Sombra once drained of emotion, that could be a good deal for them.

If Queen Chrysalis can live that long, the other Changelings would too I would think.

The fact that they are magic mutant horseflies created "artificially" leads me to think they may not have a means to reproduce, but that would mean their numbers would stagnate and decline over time due to death and injury.

I propose that they reproduce by full body mytosis, and that the holes are copied, which is why many Changelings have identical holes.

@kleptomage
I prefer the 'ancient changeling' theory.

Because the other one is just way too dumb.

It'd make more sense if she offered them the heart as part of the spoils. Since it's practically everything they could want as a species.

I'm not sure the changelings' holes are enough of a problem to them that Radiant Hope could use offering to heal their holes as a bargaining chip.

Why do the changelings still have holes anyway? Celestia blasted them centuries ago. Are all the changelings in the present ancient like Chrysalis or did Celestia hit them so hard it permanently altered their DNA? Oh dear, I may be getting too meta for this thread.
