So, as you know, I started writing "Harmonic Spectrum" right after season 2 finished airing, and thus, the story takes place sometime after the Canterlot Wedding. It took me two years to finish it, so therefore, seasons 3 and 4 were not covered by then.
To briefly sum up "HS," btw, for those of you new to the Super Rainbow Dash concept:
-In the beginning, Dash finds out about a long-lost, but unconfirmed secret about the Elements of Harmony: that of the "Flame of Harmony" and its requirements to become it.
-Over the next few days, various events unfold that gradually hint at Rainbow Dash's true destiny, as well as her having a premonition dream that shows her as the Flame of Harmony as well as disaster coming ahead of her.
-As soon as Dash makes the connection between the myth and her dream, a few days later when she goes to ask Twilight, crazy shit happens. Queen Chrysalis frees Discord with the love energy stolen from ponies, Discord quickly betrays her and turns Twilight into his burning chaotic servant, and Twilight turns on her friends.
-Realizing that her dream was becoming true in front of her eyes, Dash cries her eyes out, placing the blame on herself for not warning everypony beforehand. She later grows defiant, and at that moment, something kicks up within the Elements as well as inside of her. She and her friends then receive a series of visions that basically confirm to Dash that she is the destined Flame of Harmony all along.
-After explaining to them, her friends then lent their support for her, triggering her transformation.
-Super Rainbow Dash, as named by Pinkie Pie, goes on to fight Burning Twilight and Dragon Discord in two epic final battles. She defeats them both, saving the world and fulfilling her destiny.
-In the epilogue, in a lucid dream, Dash chats with the Soul of Harmony, the true core of the Elements, and many questions are answered. Sensing that a great darkness is about to encroach Equestria, the Soul elects to stay within her, granting her the ability to transform at will so she can train and prepare against this oncoming darkness.
-The final scene of the fic shows her attending the stained glass ceremony at Canterlot. Feeling the need, Dash transforms in front of everypony and warns them of the darkness, declaring and vowing to defend the world from it.
And that's how it all went.
So, earlier, I said I was gonna do a fic that depicts an alternate scenario with Twilight failing to defeat Tirek and Dash rising up to take her place, right? Well, Super Dash vs Tirek is still in place, but instead of doing it in the canon timeline, I have decided to do it in the "HS" timeline, so that means that Dash will have her Super form from the start. That also means doing alternative versions of season 3 and 4's major events, including the Crystal Empire.
I've just rewatched the CE episodes a while ago, so I have a few ideas on what to do. If you have any suggestions, though, please don't hesitate to comment.
Consider this, then, the sequel to "HS": "Harmonic Retribution."
