1: Derpy and Carrot Top are exploring an ancient ruin they've stumbled across on their way home. Skeleton ponies are moving to try and keep them out.

2: Derpy and Carrot flee deeper into the ruins to escape the skeleton ponies, when a mysterious earthquake traps them with a group of spiders, asking them to stop.

3: Derpy and Carrot Top flee deeper into the catacombs where they come across a kind and graceful unicorn, telling them to follow her to safety. The two don't notice the inscription on the wall. The spiders seem to retreat in fear of the unicorn's presence.

4: The small group are pursued by timber wolves as they sail up an underground river. Carrot Top seems transfixed by the unicorn's beauty and voice, while Derpy is more curious of the ruined city.

5: The trio approach an ancient set of doors. Derpy grows suspicious of their ally, seeing the carvings of the stellar sisters guarding over the tomb. Carrot Top, however, is hypnotized and opens the door to the tomb. The unicorn princess vanishes.

6: As the illusionary unicorn disappears, Carrot Top stumbles hypnotically into the cave. Derpy attempts to intervene, only to be stopped by skeleton ponies. The Ice Queen releases herself from her ancient throne that has served as her prison for over two thousand years, allowing her to regain her physical form and trap Carrot Top in her place. The skeleton ponies quickly rush Derpy tearfully out and away from the city.

7: Prince Fangor of the skeleton ponies casts a spell upon Derpy and his subjects to protect her from the Ice Queen's cold and hypnotic spell as they fight their way out of the city.

8: The Ice Queen finalizes her physical manifestation, feeling her power beginning to return to her with the release of her physical body. So long as throne remains intact and another imprisoned, her power can continue to escalate.

9: Derpy confronts the Skeleton King, angered by the abandonment of her friend. Derpy is recognized as the Flame Queen as foretold in prophecy, and is insisted to be the one to lead the skeleton army against the Ice Queen and her legions.

10: The Ice Queen gathers her power, intent on taking revenge on Equestria and Celestia and Luna for her long imprisonment.

11: Strategists assemble to plan for the upcoming battle. Derpy wonders what the Ice Queen might be after, and the Elder Council explains...

12: ...that the Ice Queen was once a great and power witch of the Frozen North who sought to rule over all the realms with her power over winter. Seeing to bring about an eternal Ice Age, she was stopped by the Stellar Sisters and imprisoned within her own throne; one soul bound to one artifact. Derpy suggests they let the main army engage hers while Derpy, the only one who can destroy the throne, sneaks behind their lines and rescues Carrot Top.

13: The Skeleton King and his spider allies ready for battle.

14: Derpy and her small strike force wait for their enemy's passage...

15: The battle is joined...

16: The Ice Queen has anticipated Derpy's maneuver, and claims that all flames shall be snuffed out eventually, and proceeds to do battle with her and her strike force.

17: The battle rages on...

The story is there - it's all hidden in the details. In scene 1, we have Derpy and Carrot exploring some ruins. Carrot is carrying saddle bags - possibly research materials, possibly camping supplies - the reason they're out there is unknown, but it looks like they aren't expecting anything extraordinary to happen. Unknown to them, several living skeletons are watching them. Around them is a discarded flag (foreshadowing) and some smashed statues (more foreshadowing.)

In scene 2, Derpy and Carrot apparently saw the skeletons and ran off in fear, apparently falling into a crypt or cave of some kind and dodging a rock slide that blocked the skeletons from chasing them. They're greeted by an unusually large spider (wearing a cape with a symbol - another foreshadowing,) and her young. Scared again and with nowhere else to run, Carrot and Derpy take off for the building in the distance.

Scene 3, The entrance to the building is chained off, so Derpy and Carrot are able to get through without the spiders following them. They discover a strange mare with ice powers chained to a magic stone of some sort. The mare persuades Carrot into helping set her free, Carrot not seeing the paintings on the walls depicting Celestia and Luna trapping the ice mare here, and setting the spiders and living skeletons as guards so that she won't escape. (See the symbol on the spider in the painting? Reference to the cape the other spider was wearing.)

Scene 4. Travel by river. More ruins. Ice-mare is freezing everything being her. Carrot seems enthralled by her - perhaps the ice mare has some sort of mind-control power as well? Meanwhile, some timberwolves are trying to flee the freezing area, and by the looks of it, are failing.

Scene 5. There's a back door out of this place. All around the door, history is recorded - it seems the ice mare has an affiliation with the windigoes, and together they'd terrorized the now-ruined town, also killing a large number pony soldiers (which are now the living skeletons outside.) Carrot is still bewitched, but Derpy seems to be having suspicions.

Scene 6. There be dragons out here. The windigo-queen/ice-mare apparently wants something of Carrot - her soul, spirit, energy, something. She uses a funny-looking magic stone to steal it. Her ice powers explode. Meanwhile, a group of living skeletons block Derpy from the ice blast...

Scene 7. And teletport her to a safe place.

Other scenes (I'm out of time. ;) ). Derpy learns history and receives training to free her friend and battle the ice-queen. Carrot discovers the truth that was stated in all the paintings and murals. The ice queen readies her troops to march on Equestria. Tactical stuff, big battle... and we're all still waiting for the next installment. ^^,

The story and explanation is all there hidden in the pictures. Though I've been following this series from the beginning, I keep noticing new details all the time that add to the story. (I didn't catch the windigo thing until now.) Don't worry if you don't get the whole thing right off. ;)

well of course all that stuff was easy enough to guess at from the images , aside from the later ones , but like there's still so much left unsaid.....
