Three Weeks Later
Princess Luna approached Larva's cell, flanked by Twilight and the Doctor.
"Ah, Princess Luna. It's so good of you to drop by. Where's your lovely daughter and her oh-so trigger happy husband this time?" Larva asked.
"Helping with the repairs to Ponyville. We didn't come here just to chat. We want information, starting with where Chrysalis fled to." Luna inquired.
"Very well. She fled to the deepest part of the Everfree Forest, to recuperate from her losses in Ponyville." Larva explained.
"You're certainly more forthcoming than last time." Twilight commented. Based on what she had seen of the Changeling Prince before, this was most confusing to her.
"My mind was not my own. It is

All was quiet over what was once Ponyville. The Changeling patrols around the ruined town had died down, concentrating instead on fortifying the Hive, aware that ponies had breached the barrier, and were preparing to attack. In a secluded spot outside of Sweet Apple Acres, Twilight and Applejack waited for their plan to commence, keeping a close eye on the shield over the farm.

It was clear from the unspoken silence that she wasn’t the only one feeling this way. Uneasy looks ran across the faces of the others, and she could only wonder what must be sitting on her own.
"We're close enough to Ponyville for a visual,” announced the Doctor, his shaking voice tearing the silence, “but I'm warning you, it's not pretty."

Crouching Pony, Hidden Changeling
Celestia's form vanished in a green flame, and in her place was a male Changeling, rivalling Chrysalis in stature.

Just as the two guards returned with an active screener, Shining Armour grabbed it and threw it at the Changeling, while Luna freed Twilight from her cell. Unfortunately, the Changeling managed to shoot the device down before its threshold crossed him. It lay smouldering at his hooves.
"I have been feeding on every single pony's love for Celestia. Do you really think a simple screener is enough to stop me?" He taunted them.
