Princess Luna Cedes to Nightmare Moon by 90Sigma Princess Luna Cedes to Nightmare Moon by 90Sigma
"You were right. Celestia doesn't care about me. I woke up early this afternoon* to speak to her... She told me to go away; that she was 'busy' and that I should attend to my duties."
"I'm so sorry, Luna. Is there anything I can do to help?"
"... Yes. I want her sun to go away. Maybe if she doesn't have to look after the sun anymore, she'll be able to spend more time with me. And maybe the other ponies could see my night, too! Do you think that would work?"
"I don't know. But we can certainly make her sun disappear. For that, I'll need your help."
"Of course, Nightmare."


If you're trying to make a timeline of what I do, you can assume that this image precedes Nightmare and Luna Confront Celestia.

Additional Files: No magic version. I'll post the SVG file later, if I remember.
Reuse: You are not allowed to reuse this image without permission. If you post it on another site, I ask that you include a link back here.

The Nightmare Moon and Princess Luna characters and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic are the property of Lauren Faust and/or Hasbro and/or others.
* This assumes Luna is nocturnal; episode 3x02 suggests she may not be, or may not need sleep at all.

Nice /)'

These pic's really good! A nice imagining of the Rise & Fall of both NMM & Luna as the pair that shared who no one cared, 'til they doth dared to stake their claim to mark their name. Yet to NMM did fall the blame... -_-
-
Could be something quite neat if DID a 'complete timeline' from:
'Rise of a Princess'/the start of Luna/Tia,

'The Nightmares begin/Tia's disregard for Luna & her being joined by Nightmare, 

'The fall of the Moon/Luna/NMM make their stand to no longer be ignored & in turn their banishment,

'The Return/When Luna is "saved" by the Elements, and NMM is but a formless part of her mind again, yet now feared rather then accepted as a friend.

'The journey/A "series" of events, the show goes on and over time Luna bit by bit comes to accept who she is and become.

'The destination/Luna at long last Also comes to accept who she Was and had meant to be/do, not a menace but a light of hope.

- The Dawn of Nightmare/Luna and NMM make peace, and so Luna regains her Full goddessness as NMM but in the name of Equestria. Thus is the final blight crushed by the 'Knight of the Night, no longer a ghoul but a Harbinger for the Light.

>_<)'7 u dig? ^_^

Interesting. Sorta like Nightmare represents her more negative impulses, which have become like that little devil on your shoulder. Well, it's your picture, if you think of them as separate entities they can be, but looking at this series sort of makes me think of Norman Osborn and the Green Goblin (specifically movie/90s toon versions, where Osborn wants to be good and the Goblin represents the evil impulses and tries to get him to give in.)

And can you imagine after? A thousand years later, forget underappreciated: The world has gone on used to Celestia ruling alone, while Luna is Equestria's idea of the devil. I can see Luna having the voice of her pain and jealousy present 24/7, if anything, much louder and stronger than it was a thousand years ago. However, this time she knows what will happen if she listens. Every minute of every day the war between Luna and Nightmare Moon goes on unseen, but this time Luna won't ever submit.

It's a split timeline. In one timeline, Luna joins with Nightmare willingly. In this one, Luna tried to resist Nightmare.

I don't necessarily hate them. It's more a feeling of pity. Surely I'm not the only one who was a bit distressed when I saw ep. 1. "And then, if the evil trade federation does not lift its embargo, we will send them a strongly worded letter urging them to!" It's Star Wars: The UN Years!
