Requisition by RedApropos Requisition by RedApropos
(well, that escalated quickly)

Lots of people were saying I should draw some more serious comics, so this happened.

Anyways, Cadence gets kidnapped, and her identity is requisitioned by Chrysalis.

THIS TOOK SO LONG FOR ME TO DRAAAAW holy crap, I hope it looks good.
Being the one who drew it, I've been staring at it for so many hours I can't even tell anymore.

-----------EDIT-----------

Fixed spelling error. I spelled "beautiful" wrong, but I ended up just changing the line altogether. Good?
Good.

A very lovely comic. I like how Chrysalis cuts off Cadence before she says her nickname, which gives an explanation as to why Chrysalis seemed to insist on being called Mi Amore Cadenza rather than Cadence, since she never got Cadence's nickname, just her full name (my personal headcanon is that Cadence hates her full name, and very rarely uses it, unless perhaps for a formal introduction, so it's easy to see her completing the sentence Chrysalis cuts off with "but you can call me Cadence")
The art is pretty close to the show but different enough that it's obviously equally yours. It might have been nice to see Cadence sinking slowly into the floor the way Twilight did, and maybe the more slime like trap Chrysalis traps Cadance toward the end of the finale, since the more zapping powers seem to be what comes from Shining Armor's overpowered love, that give Chrysalis most of her power. Over all a very well done comic.
What do you think?

And that, my friends, is how the whole Changeling fiasco started.

Raven: I question you for missing the fact that Chrysalis is obviously an expert in the art of disguise, seeing that she's the leader of a specie whose main ability is taking others' identities.

It doesn't look like Shining's shield is up, so how does Canterlot become aware it under threat? Was someone, a guard, passing by, and happened to hear what happened, but looked in too late to see what happened, and reported what might have happened? A possible threat?
That's what I think.

Otherwise this was really good! Definitely could imagine this happening. Also liked the implication that if Queen Chrysalis has her name then she has her identity as well. Or am I reading too much into this? xD  Anyway, Great job with this! :D

Clearly Chrysalis had made a threat against Canterlot, without stating the source, since they were defending against a mystery enemy. Upon replacing Cadance, she had the threat sent to Celestia, who immediately ordered Shining Armor to action, therefore causing Shining Armor to be too busy to notice that Cadance was acting weirder than just a stressed out bride should be acting (and when he does get suspicious, Chrysalis has a hold on him via his love for Cadance, and can brainwash him, ala the googly eye scene). Celestia and Luna also spend time guarding Canterlot, and it's not until Twilight shows up that anyone who knows Cadance very well gets close enough to her to see that she's acting strange. It's pretty well thought out (I'm not a fan of Chrysalis at all, and I don't think she's that good of a villain, because her motives are super shaky. If she was just trying to take Equestria to feed why did she act exactly like Cadance wouldn't and give herself away?) but the intail subterfuge is impressive.
