After a thousand years of banishment to the moon, Luna returns to find that not many ponies remember her. She has spent much of her time since her return hiding from the world, not even taking control of her night sky back from her elder sister. One night, she is convinced to slowly take command of her realm by Celestia. Luna once again learns what it means to be a princess, and to be loved by her subjects when they send her their thanks and love in the most humble of manners, in written form.

This is the story of her return to grace, and of her subjects' love and affection for both Luna and her night sky.

Hey Icer, TrustWorthy here,

Great fic dude! :rainbowlaugh: I really liked the whole letter idea and the changing the stars to how they were suppose to be really clever.

Seriously nice job

Great fic.
Finally, Luna gets the apreciation she deserves.:twilightsmile::pinkiesmile:

You did a great job covering something that has the feel of what a canon episode would be like for this issue. It makes sense that Celestia wouldn't have the same smooth connection to Luna's part of the sky as her own, even if after a thousand years I'm sure it was a reasonable copy. The little pile of letters growing over time makes a potent image, and the various personalities you showcased are a believable range of ponies who would want to send thanks to Luna. :yay:

Oh, this is gorgeous! Princess Luna really does love setting up the moon and stars just for the sheer artistic joy of it, but getting those letters... they were really sweet. Also, kudos for mentioning the Southern Cross - I've never seen anypony else mention southern hemisphere constellations in fic. Hooray for Luna!

Definitely got tears in my eyes as I read this! :heart:

Even in my horribly light polluted area that live in (cross between Industrial, Transport & Suburbia) I still love the luminescence that radiates from the moon. it just seems to make all my worries sink away. Were it my decision as to where I live, i would live in a dusty little shack in the outback, just so i could see the night sky as it should be...
The bitch of it is; I don't have a telescope.

Happy Luna is best Luna. I'll read this when I have the time.

My mind is filled whit millions and millions of daws

MOAR!! MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR:flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Amazing story, it's great to see Luna getting the respect she deserves.


>You did a great job covering something that has the feel of what a canon episode would be like for this issue.
You have no idea what that means to me, and how large my smile was when I read it. (I'll give you a hint, it puts Pinkie's smiles to shame.) Thanks for the compliment!

The idea of Luna being an artist and loving the night sky is something that I've loved seeing throughout the fandom, and I would be lying if I said that I wasn't at least partially inspired by this comic to write this story.

As for the Southern Cross, it was something that needed to be put in there, as someone who spent a fair amount of time studying the stars growing up, and much more time doing and training orienteering and survival courses, I couldn't not put it in there! Glad that you liked that little addition.

Luna is one of my favorite ponies, and is my favorite princess, I've been wanting to see something like this done for a while, before I sat down and thought, "Wait a tic. I'm a writer, why don't I make it!?" And now we have this!

I'm glad that I pulled those out of you! It makes me happy to see at least one other person getting the same reaction out of it that I did while writing, and later proofreading, this story.

502880 I know what you mean. If theres a book you want to read, and it hasn't been written, you must write it yourself! Thats what got me into writing.

Happy Luna! Yay!

I love the idea of Luna as an artist, painting a beautiful night sky for everypony. I love even more the idea of everypony appreciating her work.

Wow that was nicely done. it's nice to seeLuna getting some respect. :twilightsmile:

Huzzah! Thy princess Luna is finally getting thy recognition thou princess deserves. Finnally somepony who dosen't makt make a sad or dark story with Luna. Why does everyone make a fic where she's either evil, an emotional wreck, or a troll (which I find Trolluna freakin' hilarious). Good job dude. VI-VAT NOC-TE (Long live the night).

Congratulations on being used on Reading Rainboom! It's a beautiful, touching story.

Nice.....very nice
