...and they shall know no fear by PrincessSaros ...and they shall know no fear by PrincessSaros
The Empress, Celestia. Unmoving, immobile atop the golden throne. Her ever-present mind extended across the Milky Way Galaxy to guide all of pony-kind!

Took me a good few hours.

But a dark secret has been revealed...The technology that has sustained the Empress for so long is beginning to malfunction and fail and the Adeptus Neighchanicus who maintain it no longer have the knowledge to repair it. The sacrifices increase every day to maintain the Astroponimacon which grows dimmer and dimmer. The End Times are upon the Imperium and it feared the Celestia's mind and spirit will gutter out like a candle in the wind amidst the madness of the Warp, leaving ponykind all alone in the darkness even as the predators draw near...

She is the carrion lady of the vast imperium of ponies to whom a thousand ponies are sacrificed each day so that she may never truly die. Yet even in her deathless state, the empress continues her eternal vigilance. Mighty battle fleets cross the luna infested miasma of the warp, the only route through to distant stars, their way lit by the Astroponimacon, the psychic manifestation of the empresses will. Great armies do battle in her name. Greatest among her soldiers are the Adeptus Equineus, The pony marines, bio engineered super-ponies. Their comrades in arms are legion: the Equestrian guard, and countless planetary defense horses, the ever vigilant Manequisition, and the tech priests of the Adeptus Neighchanicus to name a few. But for all their multitudes, they are barely enough to hold off the ever present threat to pony kind from heretics, aliens, mutants, and far, far worse..........To be a pony in such times is to be amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest, bloodiest regime imaginable.

Forget the power of science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned.

Forget the power of friendship and understanding,  for in the grim dark future, there is only war.

There is no peace among the stars, only an eternity of carnage, and slaughter, and the laughter of dark ponies..........

Damn, imagine what Twilight would be like in this Warhammer'ish universe? (I presume she had a similar relationship with Celestia as in canon before the latter got Golden Throne'd)

Chaos traitors and hostile xenos? Yeah... Twily's Berserk button. It has been pressed. HARD.
