I'll come back for you by Esuka I'll come back for you by Esuka
I have been drawing some sad ponies lately. Lousy mood, I guess. This one was fun, but not particularly easy. Background was redone 2-3 times.

I'm not entirely sure where I stand on Nightmare Moon. I do think she and Luna are the same person if not the same mind, as internal conflict is always so much more interesting than external. It does seem to me, however, that there is some distinction between the two, if only in that Luna might regret where Nightmare Moon would hate. Here, have some mood music: [link]

Done in PS CS4
MLP: FiM (c) hasbro and Lauren Faust etc.

Only Celestia DIDN'T come for Luna.
She didn't even try.

What could she have done? The Elements of Hamony banished Nightmare Moon, and thus Luna, inside the moon. She would then lose connection with the Elements as she was no longer in harmony with Luna, their friendship broken. The Elements of Harmony only when there is friendship and harmony between those that wield them... it was impressive Celestia was able to use them all by herself even once.

She could not make empty promises for starters.

Keep in mind the above is not canon, no such promise was made.

Don't worry about that, if fanon was canon the times in Equestria 1000 years ago would be super rough.

Though in defense of the art I would argue that waiting 1000 years for Nightmare Moon's return, watching and preparing new bearers of the Elements could be consisered in keeping the promise made.


Though I admit, it could have perhaps been worded differently to give the intended feel more strongly.

I watch the show.
Celestia's history books cover her sisters banishment in a single sentence.
Just before Luna's banishment Celestia didn't even try to reason with her.

Then there's the IDW comics, which proved that Nightmare-ification can be reversed by conventional means.

Also your wrong completely on the "Celestia didn't even try to reason with her" as th pilot said Celestia did try to reason with her sister. What you posted was a false statement.
