After the War of the Ring and the return of peace to Middle-earth, Gandalf the White departs for Equestria to pay a visit to two old friends of his; specifically, two old alicorn friends of his.
What he does not foresee is that Equestria, like its populace, has changed vastly since his previous visit, and as a result he is quite unprepared for what lies ahead. Can the old wizard endure the trials that this new journey will bring to him? Surely, but only if he makes a few more friends along the way.
Six of them, to be exact.
Written with a heavily Tolkien-influenced style, which is pre-read and edited by thefluffyone and Shadow Fyre, who are both absolute lifesavers. Countless thanks for your help, men!
