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.

Just in case you're interested, the IDW comic presented its own take on the origin of the Changelings/Chrysalis...but it wasn't anything so monumental. Basically they're pure evil miscreations and Chrysalis is best described, to paraphrase Tolkien, as "an evil thing in pony form".

This is absolutely amazing! Not to mention the beautiful artwork, stunning shading and highlighting, and it's such a creative masterpiece!

Changeling Queen: What?! No, stop! Faust, what are you-! No, so, stop please! Not like this....Don't do this to us! FAUST!!!!

Faust: I'm so sorry, I don't have any other choice.

I thought chrysalis created the Changelings by accident and turned herself into one. Oh well

I'd guess that green haired Alicorn was the original princess of Love who tried to selfishly harness it's power.

So Celestia was somewhere else when this took place. Also, this image could assume that Chrysalis was a lookalike of Celestia & had people of her own. Until Chrysalis did something bad & Fausticorn found out. Then punished them by turning them into new monsters called Changelings, then banished them to the bad areas of the world that never let them become their old selves again. Am I right?

You which that cast on your chosen people, Just like odin,Yahwah and rest.

Your tears and love is toxic, Faust that why that turn into what they are now.

Yet you dare said it was their fault

Interesting concept.  Kinda reminds me of the creation of the Naga in World of Warcraft.

So princess Celestia was turned in to a changeling and changed her name to chrysalis then queen Fuast desguised as princess Celestia so no one would find out.:thrust: revamp 
Noran1127 Featured By Owner May 13, 2015
you can't say if that IS princess celestia being turned into a changeling and stuff
i mean she DOES have celestia's same whit fur. but will you look at the mane? and if so,where was Luna by then? :p
Lankore Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's Tia's punishment for her failures. Failure to quell chaos completely, only postpone it. Failure to save the Crystal Empire, instead have it cursed away. And finally her failure to save her own sister from the poison in her heart, instead she banished her to the moon to be all but forgotten.

Makes me wonder what they were being punished for?

Perhaps forgetting what her charges were?

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.
