"That day was perfect, the carriage was perfect, my husband was perfect. Until they fell down on us and destroyed the perfect carriage, my perfect day... and took him away. The changelings, they ruined everything. Everything.

...Then left me to die in the woods, feeble and lost...but she helped me. The mare with the cold eyes saved me. She gave me my strenght back. She promised me that I would have my vegeance, and that soon enough this nightmare would be over.

But it never did."

Leaving my awful writing skills aside ( I'm considering erasing that abomination above O_o)

...Oh my gosh, what have I done. This Nightmare Cadance freaks me out, I got the goosbumps during this project! Have I gone too far, or is it just me who is easily scared? O__O

Anyway, this was fun! I tried doing my best, gave this creepy Cadance a lot of attention and care! I was considering animating the rain and lightnings and cloud, perhaps her hair...but I would probably ruin it, so still it is! XD

Hope you like it! Credits for Lana del Rey and FLorence for the deep songs I listened for this. HOWL, CADANCE. HOOOOOWL AND PLAY VIDEO GAMES! :O

This is truly an amazing picture

It would be an honor if you would allow me to write a story based on this picture, and using the picture itself as cover-art. Once I am finished with the first chapter, I will immediately send you a link.

I would be delighted if you did and mutually honored! :) It's so kind of you to ask, I'm glad you liked the image! <3

Already got the story created, and its likely to a one-shot albeit a long one.

Don't know when I'll have it finished and posted, but I'll make sure to contact you when it is.
where is the fan fiction?
This is phenomenal! Best yet, and absolutely chilling.

Hm... Decadance, Loneliness, or Emptiness would work as names. Maybe even Till Death.
For the love of god! This is awesome fanfic material! This could be an entire plot for a fanfic! an Nightmare Cadence returning for revenge against changelings and both against ponies, for being nightmare, and changelings, durr, in an all out war!

I like it! Especially the BG! It's the best one in your Nightmare series! I'll be waiting for a fanfiction!
The only thing I might change in this pic is to make her horn look more and more like King Sombra's as she falls into the insanity of the Nightmare.
