With the airing of the finale of season two, it was to be expected that we’d see a massive incoming wave of fanfiction revolving around the three new characters that were introduced. And since the fascination with the Queen of the Changelings has passed, more and more Cadence and Shining Armor fanworks have begun to surface. One such example is Obselescence’s fic, “The Knight in Shining Armor.” Funny bit of wordplay there.
“The Knight in Shining Armor” isn’t much of a story, but it it strives to fill a small void in the canon, and does an admirable job of it. Obselescence’s little one-shot just paints us a simple picture of Shining Armor in his younger years dealing with his hopes and dreams, and how they conflict with his relationship with Twilight. Or, as he’d be quick to let slip, “Twiley.” As before, Obselescence can bring out any emotion with few words, and does a really good job of it. If you haven’t already, definitely check out his fimfiction profile. The man writes some excellent stories.
“The Knight in Shining Armor” will not change your view of fanfiction, and it certainly won’t change your day much. But it’s good for a bit of laughter, a few tears, and a short moment of heartwarming marshmallow-y goodness.
