Nightmare and Luna Confront Celestia by 90Sigma Nightmare and Luna Confront Celestia by 90Sigma
"Luna, who is this?"
"Celestia, this is Nightmare Moon. She's my best friend. Nightmare, meet my sister, Celestia."
"The Sun Princess. I've been waiting for a long time to meet you."
"Luna, what are you doing?"
"Your time is over, sister. You - and the ponyfolk - have ignored me and my beautiful night for too long. It is my turn to shine."
"Please don't do this, Luna."
"It is too late for that, Celestia. Some
sister you are. Do you sit with me when I'm alone? No! Do you ever listen to me? No! Have you even seen my night?! No, of course not! It's all about your 'rules' and your 'duties'. You don't care about me! Nightmare does. She's my friend. She's going to replace you."
At this point, Nightmare Moon took the opportunity to fling a bolt of magical energy at a distracted Celestia. Harmony was broken and the battle begun.
"Your despised sun has risen for the last time, Celestia. The night will last forever."
"You will try, Luna. But I must protect our subjects. I will not let your jealousy cause them harm."

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 Luna allying with Nightmare willingly, her jealousy finally compelling her to move against Celestia.

Luna tooks too adorable with that angry expression. Even if I were Celestia at that point in time, I still wouldn't have been able to take her seriously. (Maybe I should put Luna in her pink dress and then have her try to confront Celestia? Make Celestia hide a chuckle and you probably have a perfect 'Trollestia' moment. Yeah... it's ridiculously late and I'm lacking rational thought. I'm going to do that. Yeah, it happened. Remember what I said about option D?)

If things were reversed, I can picture Daymare Celestia (or whatever she's called) using Palpatine's 'So its treason then.' :iconnightmaremoonplz: and then proceeds to kick NM and Luna's flanks all over Harmony's green equus.

i dont get it, she's a lot bigger when she's nightmare moon, but so tiny and looks a lot younger than celestia when she's princess luna.

Nightmare Moon is about the same size as Celestia. Luna (S2+) is about two-thirds Celestia's size.
