The Winter Nightmare

There has been an Accident that has transported a small group of our Horseshoe Harbor residents to a spooky alternate-universe wherein Nightmare Moon won the tussle between her and Celestia, imprisoning Celestia in the sun and casting her world in utter darkness for a thousand-plus years.
