    Story: Ordo ab Chao (Update Part 8!)



    [Sci-fi] [Dark]

    Author: Integral Archer
    Description: One hundred eighty years before the first Nightmare Moon incident, the United Republic of Equestria is ruled by two prevailing parties and simply switches hooves between them every few years, as the citizens get more impatient and indecisive.

    In the midst of the worst depression in Equestrian history, an egregious scandal befalls the United Party when the president of the country is found guilty at her trial following her impeachment—obliterating her and her party, and cementing any future victories of the Royal Party and their leader Princess Celestia.

    Out of apathy, the United Party chooses Disce Cordis as their new leader—a strange draconequus with a piercing stare, an odd accent, and who can't even pronounce his opponent's name properly. He appears innocuous and ineffectual enough; but as his campaign goes on and he starts to gain more popularity, his strange speech and manner makes the citizens of Equestria suspect that, perhaps, the welfare of the Union isn't what is first and foremost in his mind.
