We all know the story of how Celestia beat Nightmare Moon. But not all futures remain the same. This is the story of what happened if the Elements of Harmony couldn't be used, and both Princesses were forced to fight it out. As the princesses fought, the Fiends of Tartarus escaped. In a last effort to save the ponies, Starswirl and Commander Hurricane as well as Clover the Clever journeyed to an ancient site. There they constructed a Fortress of Sorts, and sacrificed themselves to revive the King of All Monsters, Sombra and have him take down the Fiends because the Fiends were Monsters, and they believed him more than powerful enough to do so. To do this, they forcibly made it impossible for King Sombra to be evil with magic, binding him with a Geas. Now the Good Sombra and his allies have to save and restore the world to normal somehow, while at the same time fighting off the fiends of Tartarus and many other ancient evils.
So how will you survive in this broken world?

Changes to Canon:
Twilight and the Others have never met. Twilight lives in Refuge, while the others are there. except for Dash and Pinkie. The Elements of Harmony aare nowhere to be found, probably destroyed when Celestia and Luna went all out. Discord is out there, on the loose. Tirek and all the foes Equestria has ever faced have returned and become menaces once more, and Nightmare Moon has redeemed.
- Refuge: A massive floating city that is the home to the Neo Equestrian Empire ruled by King Sombra. . Refuge grows it's own food and has all sorts of defenses including advanced magical barriers that could block hundreds of Alicorn level magical attacks. Refuge is the Home of Pony Kind and constantly moving. Ruled by the Good King Sombra, and his council of Harmony, Refuge goes around and rescues ponies from slavery and tries to restore Equestria.
- Canterlot: Canterlot has become even bigger than it was before. Ruled by the Tyrant Corona Sun and her army of minions, Canterlot has become a bastion of darkness. Over Equestria the sun doesn't set much because of her, and the unicorns she has under her command. This covers most of Equestria.
- The Shadow Kingdom: A land created by Nightmare Moon for her followers. This Kingdom composes the former bad-lands. This is shrouded in eternal night, but the crops here grow, and Nightmare Moon rules as a Kind Empress.
- The Crystal Empire: Abandoned by the Crystal Empire, this land is fought over by the Eternal Sun Empire, the Shadow Kingdom, and Refuge as well as many of the other Fiends. Where the Crystal Ponies are, no pony knows.
- The Old Lands: The Old Lands have yet to be colonized by ponies again, but hold a lot of magical secrets.
