Ten minutes had gone by and only silence. It was odd; Epoch was on edge but more of curiosity. Originally it was fear but even though his body was telling him Eon was someone to fear he had literally been sitting there not far from him and only smiled a bit, and it wasn’t even a evil smile it showed an odd sense of pride in Epoch. This just made it harder to be afraid of him. The other three said nothing as if they had been through a similar experience. Finally Epoch could take it no longer” please you said you had something to say but you have yet to say anything. It’s now bothering me more then what you said earlier about me knowing to fear you!!what is it you want to say!?!” at first the others look like they were about to jump on him for talking to Eon like that but Eon calmly laughed “that is fair. But you see with the way things are I have to be sure I treat this with care or you might miss something of importance. But then you seem calm enough so let me begin with the obvious. The one who is responsible for your world destruction, the wave of Eternal nights, which was none other than me.” Epoch’s eyes widen as he heard the words.in front of him was a being who could carelessly say he was the one who destroyed his home…..and so many lives….he couldn’t even truly grasp how to react. Eon sighed and looked at him “even with that much time you still freeze up, but that is minor. For you know little of the why and how so even if you hate me, you still can’t judge my crimes. But I’m not here to confess and redeem, nor am I here to truly to get your opinion of what I did. I’ve come for you for you and I are the only ones who can truly create a world of happiness and balance. I came to give you a choice. But before I do, I’ll tell you the story of you and me and why these worlds must be destroyed. For when you hear it you may find my choice to be for the best.” Epoch looked at Him Coldly. He didn’t want to even try to listen but in this case he had little choice. He also needed to escape. He was troubled because he had said worlds, and if that was the plan this whole time……..what had he done on the two he had visited!?!?! Was Fariytrail in danger?!?! He could only hope there was a chance to save her after this. He looked at the others who were staring coldly at him probably due to how he acted around Eon. He sighed and looked at Eon “go on and tell your tale, I have no option but to listen anyway…”Unluck spoke for the first time “Dammit Epoch, learn your place!! The one before you is not happy about this choice either!!He does it to better all the lives he can!!”Epoch didn’t even look at Unluck and Clearwater sighed “Epoch, do you not see that the fact Eon wants to talk to you is a sign he truly wants you as an ally? He knew you wouldn’t understand any other way. Try to understa-”   Epoch interrupted “you’re not who I’m talking to Clearwater. Eon said he had something to say and that’s what I’m listening to. Everyone else….shut up.” this surprised Clearwater who indeed went silent. Unluck muttered something but oddly got quiet as well. Lightquake only sighed as Eon chuckled a bit “not the best way to start but expected after all you have plenty to be upset about…..well you think you do. But this story starts with your world…..or shall I say our world.” Epoch looked at him confused “wait…are you saying you came from my Equestria!?!?! But that’s impossible!! You’re an Alicorn!! Remember nothing “he went silent after thinking a bit, he had lost most of his memory in the first place. Although that left a lot of questions he sighed “I sense this tale is going to have a lot of surprises….i won’t interrupt anymore. Go on and tell it.” Eon smiled.  “as I said there is much that won’t be grasped til its told to you from me. So wait until the end. I promise this will have more clarity then question by the end. Now on our world unlike others for the most part, there were three who reigned at least in a sense. You had Celestia, ruler of light and the one in charge of day, you then had Luna, Queen of the night and guardian of dreams, and then you had Me, Eon, Keeper of time and Guardian of Balance. The Elements of harmony do have their place but in the end they are just the force of good in the world and have no will in aiding the dark when its needed. The best example of this is when Celestia sent Luna away.to send the one in charge of half of the world to the moon was a unspeakable and horrid.at the time I did my job making the failsafe of her return a 1000 years later. But that is another story.  Either way you see my job gave me a position few could handle and that is the task of making sure that time and events happen the way that is best for Equestria. There are several options and only those with great magic can even look into the time stream. But even harder is to comprehend what you see in it. But that is why I exist. I am the oldest of the Alicorns gifted with this task. And this is where it truly becomes the beginning. As you know there is the tree of Harmony, or better put, use to know. But if there is a tree for the Elements, then what of for time? And that is where things grew interesting. Just like the tree of harmony, the Stream of time is also in The Everfree forest. And that is where I lived and guarded the knowledge of the future and past. For to see the future one has to dip there head in it but only those with my bloodline can see what you need and organize it without going mad, plus the time waves are strong and drain ones very life force so only I can look in them for my body can regenerate at a pace that matches. As you can see there are quite a few problems with such power but then that’s why I technically did not rule Equestria. Such would be too much for one even if I could lead for it would make the other two who are technically weaker than me feel the need to be frighten of me” he paused a bit getting up with a sigh .it seems that it was something bothering him “but as I said power is maddening.at first there were no true issues we saw each other often as they visited me to keep me from being lonely. I couldn’t have guards and such as it would of drawn a lot of attention. For my lifetime I guarded alone. But they always kept me informed, and I also kept them updated on the time stream. Then Luna’s day came and when she turned into nightmare moon…….things fell apart. Celestia and I had different opinions what could have been done and I was hurt that such action was taken. When Luna Returned things felt a bit better, but only between me and Luna. She understood more about how it felt to have to be judge on little facts and to be alone. With this a divide had started. Luna was more of a mediator of what was discussed had no trust of Celestia who chose options that lead to horrid outcomes. And Celestia saw my power as something to be taken only when it matched her own ideas. Sadly though it was this that irritated me the most…..so I did something that should have never been done. “He hung his head as he thought about it. For once Epoch could see just how he regretted his choice. It almost made him understandable. Eon continued “as a Guardian of time there is one thing you must never see. And that is your own future. As a being that Lives for so long that sort of thing could be maddening. It could twist you into something unimaginable. But I looked. Knew it was not the best choice but I also knew that I saw my future I would see where Equestria would be as well. And what I saw…was something I couldn’t believe.it was a chaos ridden World and I was not the being I stand here today as. In my place there was a twisted being of corruption. At first I didn’t want to believe such a future. But it leads there. And the stream showed to most likely of futures. So at that moment I did the only thing I could and went to the princesses. I was in the wrong and they were the only ones I could turn to. When they heard they were quiet. I told them I would do my best to keep this future from happening as I had done in the past. Luna and Celestia were silent but both said they trust me and thanked me for telling them. It wasn’t easy saying telling people you cared about that you would turn evil someday. But I trusted their words, especially Luna who understood my fear. If anyone would steer Celestia from making poor choices it was Luna. And so I started a plan. It was a simple one but if it went well things would go smoothly. But it took time…so much time. And in that time I didn’t know Celestia and Luna had their own.one day they called me to discuss some plans with me. When I went I wasn’t exactly in mindset to go as I was still depressed. But then it seems that day was going to be another reason thing was not to go my way. Felt it the second I saw them. Luna’s eyes said it all. They both casted a powerful spell: magic removal. This spell was to be used on Unicorns that were evil and had to be stripped of their powers.as I was a Alicorn they gambled on it, and together I couldn’t stop them, they were to powerful. I   had to stop them but in this case I had only one option, using all my power I used the spell I was going to use later: creation. This spell was the only thing strong enough, since they already had me in their spell. This whole time I had been working on something to prevent me from going out of control. That something was a golem. I would have him hold some of my power and work with me and with him holding my power there was no way I could go out of control, but it had taken time and in the end Celestia had grown impatient. But now I had to transfer all of my power into the golem for otherwise they would have to deal with the time waves. As the pieces came together and it began to be formed I issued the final command “protect the time stream. Protect Equestria.do not follow my path” and with that my horn vanished and I became a humbled Pegasus. And before the world a new time Guardian was born. That Guardian” he said moving closer “was you Epoch. “

and did you see that coming?

Hmm, well i don't think he is presently the bad guy but he has the ability to be. Since he saw his future and he was going to be evil, i would think there is a chance for him to turn out that way. After all he apparently thought the best way to save everyone from him is to destroy the world o-o' 

as to who he is and what i think of him all i got was he was a secret alicorn or pegasus that was quite powerful and lonely and was the keeper of time.

wait, i keep rereading you comment and im unsure if i misread it. Did you mean to write that he IS the bad guy or were you asking if i THOUGHT he was the bad guy?
