The Elements of Deception by Jamey4 The Elements of Deception by Jamey4
What would happen if during the Royal Wedding, Shining Armor and Cadence FAILED to defeat Queen Chrysalis with their spell?
What if after the Queen "dealt" with Shining Armor and Cadence, she manages to manipulate and convert the Mane 6 over to her side, and uses them to win the changling's battle for Equestria?
What would happen if the influence of the Changling's desire and hunger for love, began to...change...the Mane 6 over the many years that passed since the changlings took over Equestria under the rule of Queen Chrysalis?

What if the Elements of Harmony then became the...Elements of Deception?
I really like how this one turned out overall, since I always love working with rain and with dark-edgy themes :)

Huge Credit goes to :iconheilos: for making the amazing Changling versions of the Mane 6 used in this piece. :)
Credit also goes to :iconqsteel: for the Canterlot Vector in the background

"What if after the Queen "dealt" with Shining Armor and Cadence"

Like in ... killing them?

It's open to interpretation. ;) She could have killed them, trapped them somewhere, banished them, it's up to you as the viewer to decide ;)

I'm happy it didn't turn out that way. It would have been far too dramatic and gritty for me.

How would Twilight let her brother being killed, by the way?

And where would Luna be?

Buying her time before coming back ... and taking back Equestria *cues "Back in control" from Sabaton*

Woah. You know I've been wonderin' if the show will have something like the elements of disharmony.

Hehe, They would probably look more like this one: The Elements of Disharmony by Jamey4 :P

THIS is what made me despise the Changelings; the fact that they were so closed to winning and had the capacity to make this nightmare scenario happen. And the truth is, as long as Queen Chrysalis is still out there, they will never stop coming until this happens.
