It’s kinda funny really. When I first got into MLP, the first ponies I knew of were Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, and both looked like such beautiful princesses and the best sisters ever.
And Luna... she looked so amazing, I thought she was the nicest, silliest and sweetest pony ever and that’s all I ever thought she was. But then, I went back to the beginning of the show and saw this “Nightmare Moon” character, and of course I knew she was evil and I was just waiting for Celestia or Luna to take her out.
And then I got to the end of the episode and it revealed that Nightmare Moon was... Luna?! I was taken by surprise at first, because I knew that there was no way a pony as amazing and kind as Luna would EVER do something like this.
But I read deeper into the story and saw that Luna had been imprisoned on the moon for 1000 years by Celestia because Luna was so angered at being in her sister’s shadow, thinking that she was simply forgotten and ignored and that nopony appreciated the beautiful nights she made because they were always asleep during them.
Nightmare Moon was a creature born out of misguided hatred and jealousy of Celestia. The Princess Luna that I know... would never do this, because she knows that her and Celestia are sisters and always will be, no matter what happens!
I wish Nightmare Moon never existed because I know Luna is better than this. She not some creature of darkness that everypony should fear like a monster in the closet, she is a beautiful princess that guards ponies dreams and brings forth the night that everypony DOES appreciate!
She is Princess Luna and nothing else.
I know that this isn’t MLP related but it’s important to note about how long I’ve been a Sonic fan and why Sonic himself is my favorite character of all time and is personally my idol.
It all started in 2008, I was 10-11 years old I think and I went into a game store with my mom because she told me I could pick out a game because of a lot of very good things that I did beforehand. I saw Sonic Unleashed for PS2, which at the time was the latest Sonic game, and I told my mom that I wanted that game and I remember her asking me why I wanted that one.
”The guy on the cover looks cool” is what I said.
So she bought it and when we got home, I immediately went to my room and played the game on my PS2. I loved this game and every thing was so awesome, because of how fast I could go and how awesome Sonic was. Over time, I managed to finish the game and after I did I told myself:
”That game was so fun! Is there any other games like this?”
And I was so correct. I looked up Sonic online and saw a good 20 other Sonic games and I wanted to play all of them. So, sometime later I got Sonic Mega Collection Plus for my PS2 and played through all of the Classic games and I loved all of them.
”Sonic is so awesome! He’s so fast and cool”
At that moment, my love for Sonic and his games soared. Every time a Sonic game came out, I’d always get it and play the hell out it. Sometimes at school, I’d even tell my friends how awesome Sonic is and how I wish I could be just like him.
(Sometimes during gym class, whenever we had to do running, I would hold my arms out like Sonic does and run... Silly, I know, but all I could think of at the time was Sonic)
And now, 11 years later and still a proud Sonic fan and always will be, because even if Sonic is a fictional character, he’s still my hero and someone I wanted to be!
I hope Sonic the Hedgehog keeps running until the end of time, so that I can continue running alongside him!
I haven't made a blog entry in a while but I just thought I should put my little subconscious dream to words for you all... at least the best that I can do for a dream. I had a dream last night, and at first I didn't know where I was or if anyone else was around and the next thing I see is someone... or in this case somePONY walking towards me! Who was it?
Princess Luna herself! I looked at her in awe and shock as the moon above me shined down on her and my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing! Was she really here standing before me or was this all in my head? I mean, of course I know that it was a dream, but I couldn't help that feeling it very well could be real! I tried to ask her something, but I can't remember what I said or if she answered me. Luna simply asked me to follow her and I did so without hesitation.
She asked me, "Do you believe that I am here?"
And again, I don't remember my answer to her, but I do remember myself smiling at her because I thought she was simply beautiful. Maybe she could sense that, and maybe that's why she was here. All I know is that she was there and I couldn't believe it! Luna then asked me to sit next to her in the grass and she told me to look up into the starry skies above us. The stars were so beautiful as well, with so many lights zooming by at the speed of light and the moon which only completed the look of the skies!
Luna once more asked me a question, "What do you see?" She looked to the same stars when she asked me that. This time, however, I do remember my answer, "All I see is you, Luna!" After I told her that, she smiled again and saw her horn glow a dark blue and she blasted the stars with a magic spell. The next thing I see, and this is the best part to me, is a good thousand Lunas floating down from the stars above. Everywhere I looked, there was so many Lunas and I felt myself smiling so happily at the wondrous sight before me.
And that is when I woke up and saw my Luna plushie next to me too. Is that why I had that dream, because I had my Luna plushie beside me? Was Luna herself watching over my dreams and decided to pay mine a visit for the night? I have no idea and no answer, but in that dream, even if it was for just a moment, I thought that Luna was real!
A party is always a fantastic way to bring ponies together and do all sorts of fun activities, so I thought it’d be a great idea to throw a party for all my awesome ponies friends!
First step: Invitations.
Who would I invite to this party? I actually have a list of who I’d like to come to the party! Celestia and Luna (if they’re not busy) Twilight, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie and Fluttershy. Chrysalis (if she promises to behave herself here), Starlight and Trixie, Lyra and Bonbon, the CMC, Spitfire and I’d like to have Vinyl for musical entertainment! All my favorite ponies in one place and having fun together, nothing could be better!
Step two: Food!
I’ll have to consult Pinkie on the food, but we definitely need sweets and pizza, because both are delicious. Maybe while Pinkie is making sweets, I’ll make my own homemade pizzas and make sure to put out soda and punch to drink and chips and mini sandwiches to snack on. Food is the fuel that keeps the party going, and we need full tanks all night long!
Step 3: Entertainment
I already mentioned that I’d like to invite Vinyl Scratch to bless our party with sweet jams, but we coujd always use more activities to have fun and play together. Outdoor activities could consist of horseshoes and cornhole and perhaps Starlight and Trixie could put on a little magical performance to lighten up the crowd. Inside activities? Video games and board games are a must and we’ll put on a good movie to watch together later in the night. Gotta keep the party rolling and make sure everypony is having a wonderful time!
Step 4: Sleeping arrangements!
I’ll put out sleeping beds and make sure all my guest rooms are clean and have plenty of blankets! Where will I sleep? Probably on the couch, unless somepony asks me to sleep next to them!
Final Step: Have fun!
I don’t need to explain this one.
The first thing I would do is make my way to Canterlot, run past all the guards and see Celestia and Luna. To see these two gorgeous princesses in person would be the greatest thing in the world, and i'd tell them how much i admire and respect the two of them for everything they do for their kingdom and for everypony is simply amazing. Then, if they allowed me, I'd give both of them the biggest hugs in the world and tell them how beautiful and amazing they are. I'd be in luck though, because both of them allow me those hugs and happily hugged me back and thank me for the support and admiration i just gave.
After that, and after another 10 minutes of hugging the princesses, I'd make my way to the Everfree Forest and lure in Queen Chrysalis with a heart shaped box of chocolates. She'd ask why I am here and why I'm not afraid of her and I'd tell her: It's because I love her and I don't think she's evil... and that she was beautiful. And like with the princesses, I'd ask if I could hug her, and with my endless luck again, she allowed me to hug her and actually hugged me back and whispered "Thank you", only to quickly leave after that.
I'd then go back into Ponyville and talk with Rainbow Dash and tell her how awesome she is and how I think she's the (second) fastest thing I've ever seen. She'd give me a hoof bump and actually showed off how fast she was by doing a Sonic Rainboom and I was completely stunned and amazed by the spectacle. Then maybe talk with Twilight and Fluttershy and ask if they could show me around Ponyville and make sure I wave hello to everypony we pass by. All we would do is talk and have fun together with all my new pony friends
A whole day in Equestria would be amazing!
Let's see... Why do I love Celestia and Luna more than anypony? Well first off, they both were the first MLP characters I discovered and the reason I became a fan in the first place. All it took to turn me was a video about Princesses and of course at first, I didn't think much of it because I thought it was simply just another girly show to avoid, but one day I actually took a chance and looked up pictures of Celestia and Luna and went and looked on the wikia for more information, only to discover how incredibly powerful and very beautiful they both were. One rose the sun and the other rose the moon? That's amazing. Even before MLP, I always had a thing for Princesses in the past, and being a Legend of Zelda and Sonic fan, it was easy for me to fall into the love for these two princesses.
So, I actually took my chance a step further and watched an episode of the show that was about the princesses and "A Royal Problem" was the first episode I watched. At the time, I didn't know who Twilight or Starlight was and just watched the two princesses scenes instead. Both Celestia and Luna were hilarious in the episode and it got a good laugh out of me at one point.
3 years of being a MLP fan later, I questioned myself again: Why do I love these two beautiful alicorn princesses so much? And the only answer I can give is because they both taught me a valuable lesson of how to forgive and forget things that happen in the past. After going back and hearing of the whole Nightmare Moon thing that happened to Luna, something born out of a misplaced jealousy and the poisonous ways Luna tried to make her own sister suffer, it actually made me sad to hear that she was banished to the MOON for a thousand years for her actions. But of course, this was because Celestia had no other choice, or else Luna's rage at her sister would have turned to the newborn kingdom they both had the responsibility of holding together. Celestia was indeed broken from this battle, wondering to herself if she would ever see her dear sister again or if what she did to Luna was wrong, every time she looked toward the Moon where Luna then resided.
A thousand years later, Twilight and her friends save Luna from her torment and what does Celestia immediately do? Not scream or yell at her for what she's gone through for the past thousand years, but instead embraces her sister and asks for her friendship and sisterhood once more, with Luna happily agreeing to and begging for Celestia's forgiveness, unaware that she already had forgiven her.
They're sisters, and that all that matters. Never mind all that happened in the past, let it stay there, because the only thing that matters is what you choose to be in the future. As long as you or someone you know is willing to let go of the past, you can make it through anything, no matter how hard or tough the situation is!
I can think of no better teachers than the two Royal Sisters. Both are so beautiful and incredible and even after a thousand years apart from one another, they're both still sisters until the end!
Those who know me knows how much I like Celestia and Luna, but I also believe a certain Queen of the Changelings deserves some of that appreciation, because to me, I don’t see her as evil or a villain. All I see really is somepony trying to help her people survive, and sure the whole “feeding on love” sounds cruel, but this is only because they had nowhere else to turn. Maybe Chrysalis had other ways to help her people, only for these plans to fail, making her feel desperate!
The hardest of choices always require the strongest of wills. Chrysalis does what she does because there was no other way to help her people. And the way the show depicts her as cruel and a creature without emotion is not the way I see it. Chrysalis is mearly doing what she thinks is right and the only way for her people to survive. A Queen must act the part and do what nopony else would do.
I love Chrysalis, but not just because of her will to do what’s right, no matter the consequences or the reactions, but because I can see the beauty she holds within her. Everypony just needs to learn how to look within somepony
