The Legend of a Shadowmare: EpilogueEpilogue
After the defeat of general Lux, he was taken to a high security prison that was far more advanced than the one Daemon had been to. The dungeon that Daemon was confined to was only for show and was only used to frighten fillies and colts on Nightmare Night. Lux, however was held in a cell designed for some of the most powerful threats to Equestria. The prison was built over a natural magical draining area, the very area that was used to punish Discord. Since he was not placed right on top of the energy draining soil below, the Lightmare general still had some access to his magic... but only enough to lift a fork to his mouth at most.
Since all the conflict was over between Lightmares and Shadowmares, the Lightmare legion had no more work that they could do to keep themselves busy, but Celestia had already foreseen this and had come up with an appropriate ‘punishment’ for the ponies without a cause. She had proclaimed that they woul

Everything that could have gone wrong, had. The potion didn’t work, Daemon was dying from a laser wound in his chest, and to top it all off, it was revealed that Lux had no intention of stopping his onslaught once he was done killing the last Shadowmares. The rain poured on as Fluttershy slowly drifted into denial.
“Come on Daemon... quit goofing around... I know you’re not dead. You CAN’T be dead. Come on, open your eyes and get up! This isn’t funny anymore! Daemon!”. Fluttershy continued to plead and nudge at Daemons limp body while everypony inside was dealing with the loss in their own way.
Rarity and Pinkie Pie were sobbing uncontrollably, hugging each other for comfort. Desdemona and Twilight were yelling at the Doctor, screaming that he said ‘it would all be alright’. Rainbow Dash was trying to hold in her tears the best she could as she repeatedly punched a wall while App

Desdemona awoke at sunrise, knowing that this day was going to be momentous. She let out a deep sigh as she got out of bed and made her way towards Daemon’s room. Upon entering she was surprised. The bed was made, the floor was clear of any clutter and zap apple cores, and Daemon was nowhere to be found. It took a few moments for Desdemona to realize that Daemon must have been more reliable than she once thought. She decided to look for Daemon outside, but as soon as she opened the door she saw him. He was watching the sun rise in a pose that seemed focused... determined... heroic. Desdemona walked up next to him and sat, gazing at the sunrise as he did.
“How long have you been up?”.
“I never went to sleep.”.
This was a whole new side of Daemon that Desdemona had never seen... he was actually acting the way he should have considering the situation. She was beginning to feel a newfound respect for her

The day after the Changeling queen, Chrysalis, tried to deceive Daemon, he was roughly awoken by Flara.
She flung him into a wall with the use of her magic and shouted “RISE AND SHINE, MAGGOT! YOU ARE IN FLARA’S TRAINING CAMP AND YOU ARE GOING TO HATE ME BY THE TIME THE SUN GOES DOWN!”.
Daemon proceeded to peel himself off the wall and said pleasantly, “Good morning Flara! I’m glad to see you’re feeling so energetic, but I don’t think I could ever hate you!”. As Daemon smiled, Flara put on her best psychotic grin and said, “oh, you will! You will...”.
Fluttershy entered the room soon after Flara’s ‘threat’. She was smiling as she trotted up to Daemon. “Good morning Daemon... hello Flara! You seem happy today!”, Fluttershy noted, seeing Flara’s evil smile. “Damn it! What’s wrong wit

Before the sun had risen, Daemon started to stir from his sleep slightly because there was some kind of racket coming from downstairs. Daemon assumed that it was Desdemona who just couldn’t wait any longer and was getting ready to leave for the chocolate factory with Fluttershy. Feeling that there was nothing for him to do today he decided to drift back to slumberland and spend the day loafing around the house. A few hours later however, Daemon heard breathing by him and opened his eyes to see who it could possibly be. Daemon was surprised to see Fluttershy staring back at him affectionately. She had never looked at him like this before and it was starting to creep Daemon out. “What are you still doing here? Weren’t you going with D.Monica to see how chocolate was made?” Daemon asked, still half asleep.
“Oh, um... she, uh , said that I could stay with you while she did that. She didn’t want us
The Legend of a Shadowmare: Chapter 13Chapter 13: Happy What?
For the first time ever, Daemon was actually woken up by Fluttershy.
She nudged him softly while whispering, “wake up please... I would like you to wake up now, if that’s okay with you...”.
After Daemon woke up he just acted like he was still asleep, keeping one eye cracked open, while slowly snaking his arm around the unexpecting mare.
When his arm was nearly all the way around her back, he quickly flipped her over onto the other side of the bed and yelled, “Gotcha!”, causing her to let out a startled squeak. Daemon proceeded to give Fluttershy a noogie despite her giggly protests. Fluttershy was eventually saved by Desdemona who had walked in on the touching scene and cleared her throat to get their attention.
“If it’s all the same to you, I would like to get this over with now.”, she said with her usual scowl. Daemon let go of Fluttershy and got off the bed.
“Get what over

Daemon couldn’t believe he was face to face with a honest to goodness ghost.
‘Ghosts don’t exist! Well on the other hand, they say Shadowmares don’t either... I guess I know how everypony feels when they meet me now.’, the petrified stallion thought to himself. The ghost started to giggle slightly, then it escalated into full blown laughter.
“Oh, you should see the look on your face! Ha ha ha ha! I’ve been a ghost for 1,000 years, but the looks I get are still a riot!”,the ghost continued to laugh.
“Does this mean you aren’t going to kill me, or whatever it is ghosts do?” Daemon asked, back against the wall and his eyes still wide.
“Phht, NO! What is it that makes you ponies think ghosts are always violent? I wouldn’t harm a fly... and from what I saw upstairs, I’m pretty sure you feel the same way.”.
“How do you know?! I could be the most ruth
