Queen Chrysalis by harwicks-art Queen Chrysalis by harwicks-art
Chrysalis currently holds the distinction of being the only true villain the series has left... Nightmare Moon was redeemed and restored as Princess Luna, and Discord promised to behave so he could stay chummy with Fluttershy, while Sombra was blown to bits. Anyone else pretty much just qualifies as an antagonist. I wonder if we'll get any lasting villains coming out of season 4.

The desire to have antagonists reach redemption seems to be pretty strong with the show, at least among a large chunk of the fandom. I know of plenty of efforts to make Chrysalis herself more sympathetic as well. Of course, I've already gone on record as liking some nasty characters, and I'm quite happy having changelings being monsters... but then, I'm old enough to like my vampires evil, undead bloodsuckers preying on innocents and not misunderstood romantic characters. I figure there's room enough for everyone's favorite take though.

Personally, I don't mind Chrysalis being a heartless, irredeemable tyrant, but I would very much like there to be an acknowledgement that, "Hey, there are good, or at least neutral changelings int he Changeling Kingdom", ya know?

I like the fact that you took a crack at twilight. Kudos, good sir. I enjoy the classic mythos far better as well.

Part of what I liked about dragons is how they aren't always blatantly evil, but definitely subscribe to a different code of ethics than most humans. This always made them intriguing. I kinda feel like this is also true of the MLP Changelings. After all, Chrysi was just trying to find food for her subjects!
