Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: The Lost Prequel 1 by GatesMcCloud Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: The Lost Prequel 1 by GatesMcCloud
Twilight spent her life trying to learn all that there is. In her journey she surrounded herself with friends that aided her in her life long pursuit. She lost that all against chaos. But in the fires of her old life she emerges anew, ever eager to learn and with a new friend that is more than willing to teach.

This is the story of Twilight the Lost, goddess of Chaos.

Surprise! My special thanks for 300+ watchers and to get some story out of the way! The fate of Twilight and her friends won't be covered in the real chapter, it picks up kinda after this, so here is the prequel to show you what happen as you won't be seeing anything new for her in a long, long, long time! Myuh huu huu huu ah ah aah! You can thank Trixie for that.

So this is the prequel.

In the sixth panel, did twilight agreed with Discord?

In the seventh and eighth panel, how did she react about what discord is going to do before he kicked her?

What? That's visual information. You can literally look at the panel and see for yourself.

Curious, why would you need to ask me such a question?

Alright, I'm just trying to understand your question better. On one hand is an incredibly easy question that is answered by the artwork. On the other hand is a question I can actually answer and explain.

This is so sad, because it's not even like mind control. They're just driven all crazy and extreme. He doesn't have any agenda or anything. For all we know from the last story, they might have the same goal as the CMC, and just couldn't work together because of what they'd become. It seems like Sweetie Belle understands this right off the bat, but even years later Apple Bloom just can't see beyond the demon and the crazy, that it really is her sister. And Scootaloo just likes kicking things.

Numbered chapters first, then sides chapters. Light of Despair leads to Shadow of Grief.

Come on, Twi. You're playing his game. You know that you can't win if you let Discord write the rules.

But really, Discord? Crossing your fingers? So gauche. You can do better.
Just promise to "release" them. I mean, that is why you're holding them over the chaos pool, isn't it? So you can release them.

I can tell here that before Discord put Twilight in that position, he had turned her friends (with the possible exception of Rarity) into the opposite of themselves (like in The Return of Harmony), Applejack has become a liar, Pinkie has become bitter, Fluttershy's become a meanie and Dash apathetic. Of course that's nothing compared to when they're turned into chaos gods for real! Of course Twilight (being the adorkable egghead she is) is all too willing to trust Discord for the sake of her friends. But she, and the others, end up giving new meaning to the term extreme makeover.

I suppose that once you are done with Lulamoon, you will finish up this prequel. I hope so, because this is epic.

Indeed, The Lost is the next chapter.

Oh, and Twilight wasn't willing to trust Discord. She represents failure, she lost everything, she was willing to lose herself because she already lost her friends. She lost all hope and Discord was the only one left she hadn't lost.

I left alot of hidden meaning in their, but I won't say what.

This is EVER so cool! Nice to see what happened to Twilight and the REST of the Chaotic Six (if I might call them that;)) BEFORE Discord (that louse; THAT's why I dislike him so much, you see!) changed them. Well done, my friend!

By the way, are you gonna do a cover for this like you have for all the rest of them? It would be epic IF you did, but if you don't, no worries.;)

This is just the prequel to the "The Lost" chapter. So yes their will be a cover. I have it already ready for when its time for us to leave Trixie for Twilight. Just sitting there, in my hard drive waiting.

:iconhurrayplz: Since you're not reall gonna show Draconic Twilight and co for a long time, I inspired myself to make my own mane six group loyal to discord pack. While the 4 of them keep their old Discorded selves, Pinkie Pie is in an insane mode (cupcakes kind of) rather then a angry mode and Twilight Sparkle is an Alicorn like Nightmare Moon. (Rarity's also a Changling)

I couldn't desaturate them to create that affect without rasterizing them and destroying the vectors. And I wasn't going to hunt down each color for them. It made me a sad panda to leave them like that.

Nimaru Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You put them in photoshop to finish the comic yes? Why not create a new layer above the vector, clip it to the vector below and fill it with grey, use overlay/multiply blend. That way they're discorded without messing with the vector.
Reply
:icongatesmccloud:
GatesMcCloud Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You can do that in F/X due to the vector nature of them. Problem is each color has its own value that needs to be adjusted independently and when I apply a blanket effect it makes it look uniformed.

I had the same problem with one of my comics early on and it was easy to fix in Photoshop. If you're not using Photoshop, then that would be harder, but you said "rasterize" so I assumed you were.
