Talk:Changeling Kingdom

From Equestripedia, the Archives of Equestria!

I’m thinking this page probably needs to be split into a couple of pages. Much of the history seems to refer to the land where the Changeling Hive was eventually established. However, that seems to be a separate realm from the one where The Return of Queen Chrysalis and FIENDship #5 took place.--EmeraldBlitz (talk) 09:08, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

Wow...made this comment almost three years ago. Amelia what do you think about this proposal?--EmeraldBlitz (talk) 23:11, 25 November 2023 (UTC)
Oh my goodness I remember forgetting to reply to this! I am so sorry! I think splitting is a good idea, yes.--Amelia (talk) 03:13, 26 November 2023 (UTC)
No worries-I totally forgot about it too. What do you think we should call the two pages?--EmeraldBlitz (talk) 10:27, 26 November 2023 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure, to be honest. Maybe Changeling Kingdom for comic appearances and Changeling Hive for the TV show? Or Changeling Kingdom (The Many Tales of Queen Chrysalis)/Changeling Kingdom (FIENDship is Magic) for the Many Tales version?--Amelia (talk) 15:02, 27 November 2023 (UTC)
Hm…the term hive seems to particularly refer to the structure first seen in To Where and Back Again, and not necessarily the kingdom as a whole. Thorax also uses the term “Changeling Empire” to refer to his nation in School Daze.
Perhaps the comic one could be “Temporary Changeling Kingdom”? If one attempts to reconcile the two canons, it seems like the following is most plausible:
  • Chrysalis establishes the Changeling Kingdom seen in the show, which is where Thorax was born.
  • Perhaps hoping to occupy Equestria after conquering it, Chrysalis and her forces abandon this location before launching their assault on Canterlot.
  • Upon being repulsed from Canterlot, most if not all of the Changelings come to earth in the location that becomes their base (and later prison) in the comics. Intent on conquering Equestria, they establish themselves there, but it’s only ever meant to be a temporary base.
  • After escaping from the kingdom turned prison, the Changelings eventually make their way back to their prior settlement. This may take place before or after the events of Siege of the Crystal Empire and/or the Guardians of Harmony comic.
  • Chrysalis’ next attempt to use Equestria as a food source relies primarily on infiltration, kidnapping, and impersonation. As such, the majority of the Changelings remain with her in the kingdom.
