The Cursed Queen by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen The Cursed Queen by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
When a drawing took so much time, like this one did, I just hope it comes out great. I think it did.

Just throwing my theories in. But I think I should explain:

Basicly, changelings looks like ponies, so what if originally they were ponies? What if they feed on other creatures love, because as love and friendship is the biggest magical power in the world of Equestria, it was taken away from them, so they can't use magic for, maybe evil?

I know, it's crazy (and silly), but I kinda like to think about stuff like that.

Also, in this pic Faust's OC was choosen for to be, let's say punisher (probably not the right word), because I always thought of her OC to be the ultimate goddess of the world.

And for last, the queen not necesserly Crysalis, it can be simply the first queen of the changelings.

This is brilliant.. Really, I mean the art, the theory is great too but just the idea of this, mixed with the frankly quite amazing art talent going into this, personally anything that permanently changes something beautiful into something dark, evil and tainted elicits a fairly strong emotional response, basically, your art talent mixed with the idea of this once pretty alicorn becoming this evil insect-esque changeling makes me feel quite bad for her, along with her guards, who surely arent nearly as closely to blame as her, and look how many there are when Chrysalis shows up, if this theory has merit, it means every one of those changelings, along with their [still pretty but.. ya know, a changeling] queen were once normal, shiny coated ponies before being punished for something the queen directed, twisting their forms, ensuing conformity among them, ridding of their once gleaming coats to a common furless black, the pegasi now growing a twisted horn and the unicorns, a webbed pair of wings, and with those, a terrible price of being cast from society and to never again return their own looks, cursed to take form of others, perhaps to teach the value of appreciating who they once were. And with this bearing lesson, with being made to becoming others then themselves, comes eternal life as a pseudo-alicorn, to carry this curse forever. That's what Fausticorn is thinking as she turns from the alicorn, tears in her eyes as she carries out perhaps the cruelest and obscure capitol punishment ever devised in and outside Equestria.

Um... two things;

2)  I meant the original Faust, not Lauren.

No, no I didn't.  Faustian often refers to a deal with the devil, and neither the work in question or the description implies the changelings or the queen made any deals with devil figures.

Unless Faustian can mean something else.  And if so, I'd like to know before I make a further fool out of myself.

Really? Because, I have a different theory. What if the changelings used to be a different pony species? And, whay if Queen Chrysalis wasn't she appeared to be? 1000 years ago, there used to be insect-like ponies, to what I call them insecticorns, before their deformity into changelings. Also, here's Chrysalis' possible backstory, also relating to the theory: she was born with an aristocratic family, who disowned her due to her condition, which causes her to grow more ugly as she ages, which explains her "holes". She was soon found by Princess Faust (the creator of Equestria and the real-life creator of MLP: FiM) as she takes her to her home and raises her as her own. She then met Celestia, as the two of them grew close; the same goes for Luna later on. However, she couldn't stop thinking about what the others said about her appearance, causing her to grow some vengeance in her. She soon met Sombra (before his transformation, as I believe he's always been traitorous and cruel) while in the Everfree Forest. She then tells him about her past, and his advice was, "Maybe you shouldn't let them get away with it. I mean, you have so much potential, Christina. Maybe, you should give them the same treatment they have gave to you." She then responded, "Maybe they should be freaks like me." She later assisted Sombra in taking over the Crystal Empire, thus breaking the hearts of Faust, Celestia, and Luna. We all know what happened after that, and then Chrysalis, now filled with revenge and sociopathy, decided to head to her old kingdom, to take it over and transform all the insecticorns into what she is now, a changeling. Celestia told her to stop this madness, but Chrysalis responded, "You know what, Celestia? We shouldn't be doing this. We're supposed to be sisters, remember? Think about it, Celestia. You, me, and Luna against the world. We can rule together, queens of the world! Our subjects will surely bow to their knees! What do you say?" Celestia said, "I think I rather be a princess than a queen. Also, I don't know who you are anymore!" There came conflicts between her and Celestia. After that, she was banished to the Badlands for what she done, and Celestia regrets this, losing a best friend. Today, I believe Celestia and Luna are in great regret of what Christina, now Chrysalis, have became. I hope you can read this, Lauren Faust, because I've written this as hard as I can.

I think of that since Faust wanted Celestia to be a Queen, perhaps she, Chryssalis, and maybe even Luna and Cadence were meant to Queens of separate Kingdoms of Equestria. Then Hasbro came in and squashed her plans, saying Queens were evil and wouldn't help them sell toys to their original little girl audience. Perhaps Celestia and Chryssalis had already been established as Queens, and Faust had to choose between them. That's why Faust is crying - she's being forced to curse one of her daughters, sacrifice her and her subjects to the forces of darkness so that her sisters and their disciples can prosper.

My interpretation is, that Lauren originally planned to make Celestia a Queen, but Hasbro wanted her to be a princess, so Lauren had to change it up.
I know it isn't anything plot related, but it's just what I see when I look at this piece.

That is actually exactly what happened. Hasbro wanted her to be a princess because queens are often portrayed as the bad guys (Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc). Thus Celestia is a princess and the only royalty beyond princes and princess have been portrayed as bad guys (King Sombra, Queen Crysalis)

I can see its a curse so strong that not even Lauren could help them, with much pain in her heart she leaves them as they cry, scream and beg for her to save them even knowing theres nothing she can do. 

Lauren: I'm truly sorry to you all, but theres nothing I can do. *Leaves and starts to cay*

Queen: NOOOO!! Please!! Help us!! There has to be a way!!!! PLEASE HELP US!!!

Lauren:Goodbye...... *Hears the Screams of pain and pleas behind her.*
