I have to say, this story was quite well-done overall. I enjoyed the read. Keep up the good work. :twilightsmile:

This is glorious.

2953388 Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

This was awesome! :pinkiehappy: Really well written and really well thought out, and this ending is the cherry on top.
Imo would have been cooler if Night had stood up to NMM on her own, but I also really like what you did with Alicorn Pinkie.

my little pony: Friendship is magic.

I see what you did there.[img]images.wikia.com/powerlisting/images/a/a9/I-see-what-you-did-there.jpg[/img]

:fluttershbad: sorry dude but the moment Nightmare stopped being Luna was the moment I stopped reading.

4112423 Sorry you feel that way, man. Thanks for looking at it anyway. :moustache: I've always found Nightmare Moon much more interesting than Luna, that's why I separated them.

We liked that story. Thou hast earned a favorite now.

-Night (Nightmare Moon)

Sorry, Night got a hold of my computer. I totally agree with her. Great job!:pinkiehappy:

It's a nice little story, but you weren't kidding when you said that this was out of date. The later chapters I had to skim through, and that ending with Princess Twilight was almost completely irrelevant to the rest of the story.

Bringing it up to date should be fairly easy. You could squeeze in some "Magic Duel" references. Perhaps Luna cleverly connected Pinkie's dream to Night's. Change some names to reflect Trixie's full canon name, "Trixie Lulamoon". Have Discord laugh at her shocked expression upon seeing him free. These are just off the top of my head. However, I also get the impression that if you actually were interested in fixing it, you probably would've done it already.

the poor castle, and you just destroyed your books, and journal.

I HATE THE PARASITE ROUTE! WHY DOES SUCH A GOOD STORY HAVE TO GO THAT ROUTE YOU WEAKEN LUNA WITH THIS!:twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2::twilightangry2:

Come to the light! We have muffins.

This story was amazing, it was well written, thought out and rounded, and I loved your nightmare moon and trixie. But there was no mention of night in the last chapter!! But that is my only complaint, this was amazing thank you

I'm glad you liked it. :) Yeah, I didn't really know what to do with that last chapter, it was just an idea I tacked on at the end that didn't need to be there.

Have more faith in yourself! It was still a great chapter and contributed to the story!! It was just with night being the most integral character I was wanting for details about her in the future. Did she stay friends with twilight? Would she reunite with Trixie? Aside from that this story was of very high quality, I'm very surprised its not much more popular

Thank you for the kind words. :) Nightmare Moon is actually one of my favorite characters and I've added her to most of the MLP things I've written. She is one of the supporting characters in Under Her Wing, in which she's co-princess of Equestria along with Celestia and Luna.

Nightmare's Dream I almost didn't upload as I felt it was my most amateurish, but Under her Wing I consider one of the best things I've written.

Spike and RD´s responses :trollestia:

"Your rule would have been nothing but bloodshed and suffering and ultimate doom for all of Equestria. What I did was save the world from you."

Why does everyone think her and luna wanted death and destruction?

"I will be watching, Nightmare Moon, always. Maybe, even one such as you will come to understand the very powers that were your undoing. Learn the lessons of the Elements: Kindness, loyalty, honesty, laughter, generosity and magic. The most important lesson, my little pony: Friendship is magic. Come with me. Your journey begins now."

Ew. The only reason she keeps saying that is cause she seems all other magic bad. Also everyone turns all the villians to earth ponies. Not saying that changing someone's species or gender isn't bad in itself but the whole earth pony thing is just insulting. If you dont agree with me my other problem is my life and being being controlled by someone else just cause they have the power to. Be good and I might give you a different form? Unlike the ponies I don't break easily

Dude I've seen normal ponies take their life or fall into depression cause of forced change of species or removal of wings or magic

"Curse you, Celestia! This is your doing!" she snarled, shaking a hoof at the clouds. "Do your worst. You will never break me!" she shouted, looking up defiantly at the darkening clouds as the rain grew more intense.

Unfortunately all ponies break. Except me

I doubt Celestia would mind if she died day one out of stubbornness. Seriously this is one of those times humans are better than ponies since they actually try to reform criminals. And I dont mean imprison the Japanese general and tell him he was fighting the wrong side of a war cause he lost

If trixie weren't there she would have been doomed to fail. Dark coat ponies aren't welcome anywhere and the mane six would have chased her out instantly like trixie

"Why have you turned on me? We are one! How can I afflict myself?"

Technically NM is like a genie that Grant's you what you want sideways. Also Luna is as much to blame as it takes two to tango

"I am always angry," came the indignant reply.

Blame that on luna

It took a moment for her to realize she had thought of herself by the name Night rather than her true name. She had to be careful. This mortal nature was eating away at her.

As I said, ponies break easily. And you are just that

Calm down child. It does make some sense. However it depends on your definition of parasite.

This was her kingdom. The night that would last forever. For what seemed like miles she walked the city streets, past countless thousands of her victims. A horror and emptiness fell over her, different from the torments she had experienced before; while the others had been inflicted on her by her phantom, this was coming from inside her. Anguish, guilt, sorrow—this was the world that Nightmare Moon craved.

Actually she runs her kingdom fine cannonwise. shes not Celestia but everything runs smoothly pretty much. It's also less censored.

Welp, as predicted, she broke. Not saying her being good is what broke her, her submitting to Celestia's way.
