Go Home Dad by Musapan Go Home Dad by Musapan
My personal theory about Sombra right after watching the premiere was that he's Celestia and Luna's father. I mean, think about it... He was banished by the sisters 1000 years ago, but it had to be before Luna became Nightmare Moon, or else Luna wouldn't have been able to help. Wouldn't it make sense for such a parasitic villain as Sombra to possess his daughter from beyond the ice, to fill her head with bitterness and anger towards the stronger of the two sisters?

And doesn't Nightmare Moon bare a striking resemblance to the King? Her smokey magic, her eyes? And I can't get Luna's disapproving stare from the beginning of the episode out of my head. Was she bitter that Twilight was chosen to defeat her own father?

The answer to all this is... Probably not. But it's still fun to think about!

Regardless of theories, I wanted to draw drunk Sombra and Luna telling him to gtfo. I also wanted to take a stab at Sombra's articulate nature. Because ponies.

Who cares if a theory fits. If it is fun to contemplate so that is all that matters.

Which would be possible if we count the theory that the sister are not goddesses but simply gained alicorn status similar to how twilight got it. And this could also explain where Luna got her evil side from (not the possession).

Well along with the theory, that could also mean that he wasn't her father, cause he could have seen the anger and jealousy she was going through, and through the ice he manipulated her into turning against Celestia.

I agree with this theory.
Also I believe Sombra posessed Luna and turned her into Nightmare Moon.
As for Celestia and Luna's MOTHER, well, we ALL know who that is...

thats a nice theory
i was thinking more along the lines of him being their brother
other wise he wouldn't be so powerful, let alone live so long
and celestia knows how to use the same magic he does so maybe they learned their magic from the same teacher.... their father, or mother,or both,or uncle...... yeah idk

Aaah, but what if he's merely Luna's dad?

As in, he had a fling with their mother who was already married, making Luna a bastard. That would explain both why she looks more like him than Celestia, and why she resented her older sister so much.

Also, evil derp left me in stitches.

I didn't read Luna's expression as disapproving. Based on the idea that Luna will start teaching Twilight, it was more of a "I own you. I just haven't decided what to do with you yet".

I wonder what the King is like when he is sober.

King Sombra: Today my dear Crystal Ponies, I am happy to proudly proclaim your finished development into your new status as my underpaid assistants.

Crystal Pony: Huh?

Kimg Sombra: ... you are my crystal slaves.

Crystal Pony: Why didn't you say earlier?

Dude, don't take things so literally. When I said 'somehow', I meant the explanation of it seems unlikely. I was thinking of this exact scene when I concocted my theory. Mr. Cake confirmed the ridiculousness of it himself when--after explaining how he assumed it happened--he asked with a rather desperate expression, "That makes sense, right?"
That being said, we have no idea who Sombra's parents, relatives and ancestors are, therefore it's just as likely that he was able to spawn to alicorns as two earth ponies giving birth to twin unicorn and pegasus ponies.

I like the way you think! :) You're right, it probably all isn't supposed to tie together like this, but it's fun to think about nonetheless.

And I like the way you draw, too. :) Poor Sombra! He doesn't deserve that sort of treatment, especially from his own daughter...

Geez the next thing you know you'll say that Queen Chrysalis is their long lost mother (because really, why not) due to the fact that both her and Sombra have their perspective Queen & King royalty title while the Royal Sisters are basically princesses? Lol

Anyhow, funny comic. Gets screen time like Luna, but have little lines like Luna herself

Black demonic looking unicorn + black changeling which is a different species = one white and pastel rainbow alicorn and one dark blue and stars alicorn

Seems legit

Or maybe the genetics worked like the Cakes' or something. I dunno.
