In a time long forgotten the Rainbow Warriors protected the Equestrian world from all harm and chaos that threatened to destroy them all. They were hailed as Order of the Greats and were commonly treated like queens and kings. It was well known everyone loved the Rainbow Warriors since they were the embodiment of Love, Kindness, Bravery, Selflessness, Friendship, and Strength.
A time of peace came over the land for under the protection of the Rainbow Warriors, Chaos and Evil had been washed out of the land. Many years passed and the influence of the Rainbow Warriors died, their stories became legends and they became stuff of fables. The Rainbow Warriors had dispersed upon seeing that their era in time was up. They traveled to the corners of the globe setting up empires or simply becoming wandering souls. Years passed, centuries passed, Eons passed and peace still remained. Until that one fateful night when the Darkness leaked into the land.
A year passed and everything seemed of normality. Until in the dead of winter a entire empire was destroyed. Without thinking the Warrior opened the beacon, a spell only to be used in the utmost emergencies. All the Rainbow Warriors had been notified with a flash of their eyes and a glow of their horns (and or foreheads) and a simple yet terrifying message. "Darkness has returned."
I appreciate your art style and I will give you points for providing lore for almost every piece of your artwork but there are too many female alicorns in this picture and to believe there are no male alicorns in the mlp universe is absolutely ridiculous.
I like the picture! It reminds me of your other pictures, in that there is the obvious traces of a much bigger story here that we can't fully see... I'm rather curious as to what it is. The picture is very good all the same.
