The Haunted Canterlot by Vashar23 The Haunted Canterlot by Vashar23
But evil things, in robes of sorrow,
Assailed the monarch's high estate.
(Ah, let us mourn!- for never morrow
Shall dawn upon him desolate!)
And round about his home the glory
That blushed and bloomed,
Is but a dim-remembered story
Of the old time entombed.

And travellers, now, within that valley,
Through the red-litten windows see
Vast forms, that move fantastically
To a discordant melody,
While, like a ghastly rapid river,
Through the pale door
A hideous throng rush out forever
And laugh- but smile no more.

Edgar Allan Poe, "The Haunted Palace"

---

Discord as Vincent Price in "The Haunted Palace" movie, many major characters turned to (paintings) ghosts who haunt the empty canterlot in a endless gala of empty memories

...I should REALLY try to draw a happy pony-fanart

"Where hinges creak in doorless chambers...where strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls...where candlelights flicker though the air is deathly still...this is the Haunted Canterlot Palace. Welcome, curious friends! You may not believe it, but beauty once lived in this castle. If beauty lives here still...show herself..."

(A ghostly image of Celestia floats past)

"Lovely, isn't she? Now, come along; I have more beauty to show you...farther on..."  Devilish 

Dialogue paraphrased from the now-defunct English narration for "Phantom Manor."

Sincerely yours,
J.
