Nightmare Luna by 90Sigma Nightmare Luna by 90Sigma
Luna donned her armour and acquired the power she needed. But she stopped before the dark magic could take control of her, leaving her a pony without dragon features.

This was a request from :iconfragnostic: Fragnostic. Fragnostic wanted to see Luna use Nightmare's powers without becoming Nightmare - "a fusion of duty and power"; "[a picture] to show that it's not Luna anymore but not yet Nightmare [Moon]". Note that Fragnostic emphasised that Luna was not to be evil in the image, and was in fact loved by the ponies and her sister as a whole, having found her role and place in Equestria.

There are some scenes in-show where both of Nightmare's eyes should be visible, but one is hidden by the helmet. After trying to create this, I can see why. It's not easy trying to make the helmet fit. Interesingly, adding the armour to the image makes Luna look a lot smaller.

Thought experiments: Daymare Celestia | Naked Nightmare Moon | Nightmare Luna | Regal Luna

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

She's cute. I wouldn't mind if that would be her 'Full Powah Mode'. Still young Luna is the cutest.

More back-story:

Twilight was writing a report to Princess Luna about the Time Spell she used while sending items to the past.
She calls Spike to send it via dragon-fire, but he trips and his fire hits the vortex of the time spell.
The two magic types collide and the last item sent back (a book about the history of Equestria) gets send to the recipient in the past.

Meanwhile, in the past, Luna is preparing to undergo the ritual to become Nightmare, but before she can finish, the book arrives.
Luna reads the book and decides to change her future. She stops the ritual at the right moment and becomes "good" Nightmare.
Using the book, she stops some crisis's from happening and gains the adoration of her ponies.

This might make irregularities in the future as the Elements are not needed to redeem her but surprisingly the mane six still become
friends and the Elements awaken within them. The rest would be the same except with less heartbreak for the sisters and more
Luna screen time! (Because Luna is best pony!)

To conquer the self is to obtain true power...

I have no idea who said that quote, but I think it applies; total omnipotence + a more clear mind = a good situation for her. XD

Nicely done.

To be honest, I never saw much difference between Luna and Nightmare Moon, aside from the armor and helmet, so to me the only indication that is Luna behind that outfit are the eyes, which are too cute for Nightmare Moon ;P
Still a very nice vector.
