Unusual find by Ghost-Peacock Unusual find by Ghost-Peacock
“Shining Armor! Shining Armor, where are you?” cried his mother.
Shining Armor knew how upset she and his father got whenever he wandered off, but the little colt was beyond curious. Where is that unusual glowing coming from?
He was at this cave just the other day and he didn’t see a thing.

Just before he reached the spot where the glowing seemed to be coming from, the entire cave lit up.

The light blinded Shining Armor. He had to duck down.

After awhile he pulled apart his hooves to find that the cave was dark again. The glowing still continued. The light was a very bright turquoise color and the way it made the cave light up reminded Shining Armor of the crystals in his dad’s museum. He finally built up the courage to look behind the corner and found that the glowing was coming from a pony.

It was a pink filly with a highlighted mane. She seemed to be about his age. The light was coming from beneath her and it swept over her face like blue flames. At first glance, Shining Armor thought she was just a pegasus, but then he noticed the horn atop her head. This was a princess pony!

“Hello?” Shining Armor asked, “are you okay…whoever you are…”

“Oooooh…mama, is that you?”

“No, I’m Shining Armor,” he said. “Who are you?”

The alicorn filly suddenly sprang to life. The light beneath her stopped and the cave became pitch black.

“Aaugh! Help! Help me!” the filly shouted in the dark.

“Hold on,” said Shining Armor. He concentrated as hard as he could and suddenly the room was illuminated by the magenta light of his horn. “There! It’s okay. You’re just in a cave, not in danger.”

The filly stared at him and the cave questionably. “What’s your name? What are you doing in here?” Shing Armor asked.

“My name is Cadence and…I don’t know what I’m doing in here…the last thing I remember was somepony telling me to sleep tight. She was crying while she said it. Then she screamed and everything got very dark. W-where am I?”

“It’s a cave right outside the Canterlot park,” Shining Armor said.

“Canterlot?” asked Cadence.

“Here, you should just come with me…”


Head canon about how these two met. Love blooms from odd places indeed.

True story, before Faust left, she wanted only Tia and Luna to be alicorns. Cadance was supposed to be a pegasus. They quickly changed it after she left.

I still love this shipping, however.

I'm not mad  at that. I like all the alicorns.

wait? so she was murdered or sick or something and then she was reincarnated into cadence? how'd she get to the cave?

Um no...that's not what I was trying to say.

In my HC she is the daughter of the Crystal Empire's queen who put a spell to have her sleep until King Sombra was defeated. Somehow it backfired and Cadence slept for thousands of years until with amnesia. The thing she says about everything going black is suppose to be that Sombra killed her mother.

Aaaaaaand this backstory isn't official so I'm not calling it canoncanon. But yeah. That's the story!

That's pretty sweet actually.

And it's worth noting supposedly Cadence was an ordinary pegasus before she was an alicorn, the canon-ness of that is debatable though.
