The Festival of Fire by Lionel23 The Festival of Fire by Lionel23
Writing Fanfic Season 2, Episode X (TBD) - Big Trouble in Little China. Commission art done by :iconjackjacko-eponymous:~JackJacko-Eponymous.

"Kuai dian, kuai dian!'' one of the Empress' consorts said as they ushered the group off the main thoroughway and out of the searching and prying eyes of Twilight Sparkle and her friends.

~~~

Don't you just love me and my quick teasers? I've been slacking on posting this and wanted to get this up before I headed to bed here, but this drawing continues my 'Grown Up Cutie Mark Crusaders and Chrysalis' adventure. The background of the drawing is that the group has now ended up in China and has pleaded their case to the Dao Empress, who agrees to help them but only for a short time. When Twilight Sparkle arrives and seeks the Dao's aid in finding the group, the Empress replies thusly:

"I'm afraid, Twilight Sparkle, that my people are currently in the middle of the Festival of Fire and I cannot lend you any help in tracking your friends down until the event is over."

Under that pretext, the Empress has some of her consorts attempt to smuggle out the group before they are obliged to 'turn over' the Crusaders should they fail to leave the city before the Festival is over.

Indeed! The 'second season' featuring the CMC and Chrysalis as the primary stars.  Season one focuses on Twilight Sparkle and the Mane Six.

Hmm do i have to read the first season to be able to understand whats happening in the second season?

Nope, you do not have to.  But it helps as a sort of background for who is living there.  The second season revisits some 'old friends' but mainly explores new areas!
