Wither by Yula568 Wither by Yula568
"I think... it's the curse. It is coming to the end. The holes will become bigger... your mane will wither. Eventually, you will die. And the curse will search for another host. Until somepony break it." (the court doctor)

~~~
This is an idea, which just came into my mind and became part of my story about Chrysalis.
I thought always, that the changelings are cursed and for the more drama, a story was born about it too.

"The curse of the changelings is in the books as the "Curse of Scorn". Once upon a time, there was a royal couple. Queen Scorn and King Shatter. Shatter lost his interest in his queen, and he became obsessed with creating a perfect army. Every single soldier a perfect warrior, merciless and loyal to him. There was a rumor, that he eventualy stole the souls of his soldiers and bound them to his will. Queen Scorn however was not concerned about the ponies, but the lost interest of his king. With the help of his loyal knight, she organized an army and challenged her husband. When she was about to lose, her rage errupted and created a curse. Her husband and his army was turned into monsters, who can't feel and can't live without stolen lifeforce. As Shatter attacked his wife to reverse the curse, Scorn accidentaly killed him. But the curse became sensible and somehow... alive. The curse found it's new host in the person of it's creator, the queen. Scorn saw a weapon in it, to erase the wrongs of her husband, but evetually, she became corrupted by the curse and the life she was forced to live because of it. The last known data is, that her loyal knight followed his queen into exile, and when the queen died a natural death, the curse found the knight as the third host."

Aand... this is some devil-circle. The host eventually die because the curse eat him/her. But no matter if the death is natural or not, the curse will search another host, until it is broken. 
So Chryssi will have her trouble... because the curse is coming to the end for her. And she don't want to go down silently. But it will make her change a bit. ^^

Does the curse kill them even if they have love still?

Uhm... this answer would reveal a spoiler, but i try my best ^^; 
So... this curse likes hearts with no experience with true love. That's why Chrysa was chosen by the old Changeling King, because she never felt true love for anyone. She was a lonely princess, full of mistrust. 
But if the cursed heart experience true, deep love... that's something else ;) Then... it will not kill the host.

Morningstar, oh shine onto the beloved of mine Cast a warm light onto her frightening face Tell her she's not alone And the star wants to shine onto the beloved of mine It warms my breast and shakes where life beats To see with the heart she is simply beautiful

It's from the Rammstein song "Morgenstern", the song is about a woman who is so ugly that she hides from the sunlight but when night comes she emerges from hiding and begs the stars to make her beautiful. Another person in the song is a guy whose absolutely miserable because he finds the girl ugly but he can't stop loving her, so he pleads with the stars to make her beautiful and to tell her she's not alone. When I saw this piece of art it reminded me of the song, especially the final part which was posted.

Thus the knight became the changeling king that takes Chrysalis and turns her into a changeling

Fantastic portrayed imagery of queen chrysalis!

And the story is intriguing as well! :clap: But I absolutely love the emotion you captured in this image, as well as actually getting some age on Chrysalis, as she usually looks very young in other depictions of her, this feels like a fresh version of her!
