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

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

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.

Cherry Light (ancestor Cheerilee), "And that is why we love our changeling protectors and guides, for having peace and order to all of Ponykind."

Meanwhile those ponies that Princess Luna managed to save from Equestria and around the world and secretly transported to a colony on the Moon finally finished their preparations for their crusade generations later, and the end of Changeling rule of Equestria was marked with appearence of massive oval-shaped dropships descending out of the sky, carrying with them a massive crusading army armed to the teeth with futuristic magitech battle tanks, war-bots and aerospace fighters. 

The Changelings, driven to stagnation and complacency by centuries of unchallenged rule, stood little chance. Equestria is thus returned to pony rule under Princess Luna.

And it's things like this, that make me want to make the changelings kick MORE flank and cause MORE damage and be MORE unstoppable with every single one of these. Not being negative towards you. But subversive (trope definition) is how I write, so I a lot of what I write in a way that is an inversion of something I saw or experienced somehow. Me trying to balance things out.
