And Magic Is Heresy by NCMares And Magic Is Heresy by NCMares
"Please." the xenos looked up with hopeful violet eyes.
Behind that hope was fear, however. The being that stood before it was no longer the faithful student she loved, but she was down there, somewhere.

She had to be.

"Will you accept my friendship?"

Twilight Sparkle grimaced as a thousand memories came rushing to the forefront of her mind. Memories of the old world. Of Equestria. Of her friends and the love they shared.
For years she'd been haunted by the inability to complete the phrase. She'd forgotten what friendship was. Now she remembered.

She finally opened her eyes and Celestia visibly shuddered under her glare.

"I'm sorry, Princess."

The bolt pistol clicked.

"But friendship is magic..."

--

Am I a heretic for drawing pony/40k? Maybe, but trust me when I say that it's a lot of fun-*BLAM!* This is also fueled heavily by the rule of cool. Should a xenos even be able to touch lovely commissar threads? Probably not, but I think she looks pretty darn awesome in them! If the rule of cool doesn't satisfy you, however, then my condolences. :[

Inspired by this fan-fic.

Twilight's considered a sanctioned psyker by the Imperium, so unicorn "magic" isn't what she's referring to. :) Oh, and this is probably best viewed on a monitor. It's a tad dark. GRIM-dark! >:]

Oh snap - that's the number three slot in the drawfriend! Thank you, guys! :D www.equestriadaily.com/2014/08…

Perhaps I am missing something but why the hey would Twilight be shooting Celestia? Why would she be considered 'xenos' and be on the the receiving end of a bolter?

Especially since in most iterations of MLP/WH crossovers Celestia is made to be the God Empress of Ponykind.

This one here is loosely based on the stories 'The Dark Ones' and it's sequel 'Of Xenos and War.' I don't want to spoil nothing, but in this universe Equestria is paid a visit by the Imperium of Man after enduring a great disaster. I definitely recommend The Dark Ones - I thought it was a great read. :)

Can you perhaps PM/Note me some more information. That doesn't really draw me in, especially if the story has Twilight killing Celestia, which concerns me very much, so you'e going to need to offer me enough information for me to think it is worth the read.

Also don't worry, I am one of those people who spoilers don't ruin the story for me. Heck, if there is a movie I want to see but can't I often look up information and it on TV Tropes... and willingly expose myself to spoilers.

i just caught the funniest bit of the whole thing, while everyone else is crying about twilight killing celestia...notice that the bolt pistol "clicked" either twi is out of it, or she's letting her go, cuz bolt guns don't click they're mini rocket launchers, they boom. so good ol'twilight has either lost count of her ammo (meaning that miss obsessive compulsive has lost it) or the plee of friendship might have worked if just barely.

Then what is she refering to? I don't get it.

The magic of friendship. See, in the (awesome) story that this is loosely inspired by ol' Sparkle is scooped up by the Imperium. They refer to her teleportation/ levitating magic as a psychic ability, which some humans also possess. This is considered heresy and usually results in execution, but some Psykers that are deemed useful become sanctioned. So in this drawing Twilight has believed for decades that she was the sole survivor of her planet. She's been rolling with the Inquisition, which is all about finding and destroying all things heretical. In a sense she's been brainwashed and is in the business of destroying xenos on sight. She's been doing this for so long that she doesn't even consider herself a pony anymore and only knows the grim darkness of the far future. So to encounter another pony after all this time - let alone Celestia - is pretty darn jarring. Magic and witchcraft is the stuff of chaos, and that's not going to fly.

It's dark stuff, but that's why we love 40k. :)

"so long that she doesn't even consider herself a pony anymore"

I see. She needs a serious reboot of her brain, then. :-S
This Inquisition ... it looks like the worst of the SS and the worst of the Spanish Inquisition combined ... pant-wetting stuff: :-S


"It's dark stuff, but that's why we love 40k. :) (Smile)"

Well, some like it. I'm fine with that. But I prefer the happier type of things. ^^;
Though, that doesn't prevent me from appreciating the quality of a drawing. :-)

Thanks, bud. :) Don't worry - I'm not all doom and gloom either, haha.

The Imperium is pretty awful, but it's gotta be to keep humanity from being wiped out. You know, 40k actually coined the term "grimdark." :D

That would mean the ponies are a threat to mankind. How come? :'-(

It's not even that! Mankind is so xenophobic that they tend to exterminate species for the crime of simply existing. In the story, however, it was another alien race that destroyed everything Twilight held dear. :(

What? No way! As a human, I wouldn't think about exterminating a species, as long as this species doesn't try to enslave or eradicate mine.

As for the humanity destroying species for existing...we have full right to in the 40K universe, there were some species that killed millions of humans before even realizing we exist, others who they've been dead for millennia before we even came into being, and yet their relics (mistaken for jewelry) transformed a planet's nobility into horrid monsters that were nearly unkillable, and reporduced by laying eggs in freshly murdered corpses. Then there were the Eldar...lying self obsessed bastards that they are they've lead the imperium to go by the rule of thumb, that all xenos are lairs and out only for their own gain. after that add in the truly warlike species of the 40k universe, the warp gods who feed off emotions and death, the swarms of planet devouring nids, the imperialistic weebos.
