Finding her ward awake long past her bedtime, staring at the Sun rising in the distance through her open bedroom window, a Nightguard foalsitter finds herself recounting an ancient tale to get her to go sleep.

This story was heavily inspired by these YouTube videos:

Short and Sweet.
I like it. :pinkiehappy:

That was a really good short story! The first thing that caught my attention is that the story mentions one can't surely look at the sun without hurting their eyes. That's a pretty good contrast to softened moonlight. Also, 'brightest lights cast the darkest shadows' could very well be the best description of Celestia's and Luna's relationship. Thanks for taking the time in writing this story!

Thank you for reading it and taking the time to comment. ^-^

Before I read this, what is the Dark tag for ?
And how bad does it get ?

This story has one of the ponies changed by Nightmare Moon looking back on centuries of effective banishment from Equestria and the effects the changes had on them as a new species of pony. In this it deals with Celestia's tyranny, a slight hint at the torture of daytime, and the realisation Celestia won the short war against their effective creator who now sits in her own banishment on the face of the moon.
