But what if they no longer like me...? by JinYaranda But what if they no longer like me...? by JinYaranda
Luna: "But what if they still fear me, and no longer want my night?"

Celestia: "They are your subjects, Luna, they will always love you. You just have to show them that you love them, as well...now, enjoy your Nightmare Night. It is your night, after all!"

Just a little comforting scene of Luna and Celestia before the Nightmare Night episode. She may have acted all big and bad, but Luna just wanted to be loved.

Sad but lovely piece, I love the expression on Celestia;s face, Luna;s wing and Celestia's mane/pose.

They are really sweet.
Nice job! Sweet and warm Celestia.

(Celestia: Er.. I forget to tell Luna not to use Royal Canterlot Voice to address her subjects.)

Thanks! I like seeing them as loving sisters more than enemies.

I think, up until the part where she cancels nightmare night, she WAS trying to act friendly.

As touching as your dialogue is, I was thinking more along the lines of this:

"But what if they no longer like me?"

"I like you, Luna!"

*Equine alarm eyes* "Sister, thou art creeping me out!"

(I've been seeing too many "Molestia" comics) :P

Your image is actually quite touching.

You don't mind if I use this as the image for my story, do you?

I was looking through my pony folder, saw it, and knew that it would be just perfect.

That is true, we saw that when she huffed and started walking off, all mopey. I don't think there was a brony who didn't want to give her a hug right then.

Good art, and a nice speculative moment. Nicely done.

This is just why Luna's one of my favorite characters.

(And she can really count herself lucky that she has a sister like Celestia, too!)

So I must ask you:
If Luna is one of your favourites... What do you think about Celestia?
Reply
:iconschneelocke:
schneelocke Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012
Celestia's great, too - wise, benevolent, magnanimous, dutiful and imbued with a sense of humor.

That said, my favorite characters - in books, movies, TV shows, you name it - tend to be those that are hurting or struggling, those for who things aren't so easy; those that are torn back and forth, those that are faced with difficulties and problems and those whose roads are rockier than most.

Tragic characters, huh? I like them too.
They say: Luna faces all suffer of world, banished for 1000 years knows anything about world, have to learn again bla bla bla (I won't speak about fandom imagination, about "tyrany", because I would be not proud of myself...)
But what about Celestia? entire millenium she lived without her sister. She had to get along with that lonliness.
Plus fandom doesn't let her be, as she is. Trolling, tyrany, pervertion... All, what's the worst they are giving to her.
Why...?

schneelocke Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012
Yeah, it's true, Celestia must've been pretty sad to have lost her sister for so long, too. But at least she had others around her, and she knew Luna'd eventually come back.

As for how the fandom portrays her... ah, I don't ascribe too much significance to that; my image of her is really mostly based on the show. I'll admit I'm amused by the concept of Molestia (especially when the tables are turned on her), but I see that as a bit of harmless fun, just a spoof that doesn't affect my idea of Celestia herself.

this is exactly the kind of image i have been waiting a long long time for....... An image of the nightmare night episode when this happens........ Truly there can be no substitute for the love and gratitude Celestia shows all those around her. There can truly be no substitute.

I always wanted to hug her tight. I keep remembering that she was isolated for a thousand years and she needs so much love for all those years. After that time, no wonder she was socially awkward with others. But she was Nightmare Moon then, now it's Luna.

I like the idea behind your drawing. And I love Luna like a lot of people. I hate to see her crying, but this is very sweet and well done.
