Nightmare Moon's Showdown with Princess Luna by 90Sigma Nightmare Moon's Showdown with Princess Luna by 90Sigma
"Have you decided yet, Luna Starlight*?"
"I'm sorry Nightmare. You're a good friend to me, and I really want to show my night to other ponies. But I cannot hurt my own sister."
"This is your final decision?"
"Yes, Nightmare. I will find another way. Surely somepony out there will listen to me."
"So be it Luna. If you will not help me, I will help myself to you."
"What... what do you mean?"
"Your anger and jealously have grown stronger, and I have grown stronger with it. I'm more powerful than you now. Once I take your powers as well, I can defeat your pathetic sister and stop her despised sun from rising."
"No... no... Nightmare, I won't let you do that!"
"No, Luna, you do not have a choice. Because Luna, I am you. We are the same pony."

This sort of concludes the mini-story I had in my head. It began with Nightmare Comforts Luna and continued with Nightmare and Luna Stargazing. This little story ends with Nightmare's personality taking control of Luna's body - hence "transforming her into a wicked mare of darkness" - sealing Luna away for one thousand years until Twilight and her friends could remove Nightmare from Luna's mind.

But this leaves one final question for you to ponder: Is this battle mental or physical?

I'm just saying this I just got into watching MLP and It would have been much cooler if Nightmare Moon where still around. I like MLP they way they have it but It would have been cooler if she was still around. They just finished her off too fast for my taste is all I'm saying.

For a while, I thought Nightmare Moon was a recurring villain, sort of like Team Rocket in Pokemon.
