Past Sins: Chapter 20: Judgment OR (Final Testimonies)

[Nyx's/Nightmare Moon's Diary]

Dear Diary,

So I finally released the princesses, and you wouldnt believe the state that they were in. While during their vacation away from Equestria, Luna is now muttering about starting a potato farm on Mars and Celestia is in a banana suit screaming peanut butter jelly time repeatedly. Okay... first off... two questions... what kind of drugs are they on and where can I get some? Wow... only a few weeks has passed and that was how long it took to make them go batshit insane. It's no wonder Luna went all berserk as... urm... me... when she returned to Equestria after her 1000 year imprisonment.

Great... another pair of nutcases to fix. Wasn't Spell Nexus and his crew of miscreants a hooffull already? Oh well I guess... time to fix this. Mom and I decided to just hit their heads multiple times with a pair of baseball bats. It seemed to work and I have a sinking suspicion that Mom seemed to enjoy it the most especially when bashing on Celestia's thick skull.

After we knocked them back to their senses, we told them what they've missed these passed few weeks, the fights fought, the nation's struggle, the conflicts I faced yadda yadda... boring stuff. I bet you could summarise my whole life experience as Nightmare Moon in about a few chapters and pretty much nopony would want to read that.

Anywho, I'm surprised I'm still sitting here and not sulking on the moon; bruised, battered and beaten to a pulp but apparenty Celestia decided to be a lazy fuck and deferred to Luna for my final judgement. I'm truly surprised Celestia even did that considering she had no qualms when she kidnapped me from my mother last time. So now Luna is getting some testimonies from fellow citizens before her final sentence on me... my final judgement is at hand.

-Nightmare Moon/Nyx

[Testimony by the Element Bearer of Honesty]

Ay was takin' a nap after overindulging in fifty tons of cider when Princess Luna flew in askin' me for my personal testimony on Nyx. Now I'll be honest... Ay thought was still dreamin' considerin' last Ay heard Princess Luna was still on the Moon.

What Ay think of Nyx well... as Nyx she was very keen on learnin' 'bout farmwork. Somethin' my own lil' sis doesn't pay no heed to what with her crusadin' and all that. But as Nightmare Moon? Well... let's just say that appletanks are all ay need if she's tries anything. Anywho, in all honesty, Ay reckon that... Ay don’t know what to think... Ay mean she did some pretty nasty things and more than her fair share of good as Nightmare Moon. Ay guess I'm on middle ground really... but if Luna still believes Nyx's still indebt for her crimes... well... go easy on her. She's been through thick and thin especially livin' with Twilight of all ponies. And you you can clearly see what a fine example she turns out to be but I'll admitt that I’m probably not the pony to go askin’ ‘bout this and that's the Celestia-damn honest truth.

*end of recording*

Okay now time to get some slee- wait... what do you mean you want me to bring you to other ponies for their testimonies??? Now wait just a Celestia-damn minute Princess Luna there's no way I'm goin' to... urm banishment to the moon you say... Well... so much for my nap...

Meanwhile, Twilight was tending to Nyx's wounds on her makeshift bed with Princess Celestia observing in the background. Nyx willed herself to not go to sleep unwilling to lower her guard around the princess. Though soon enough Nyx feel asleep from sheer exhaustion.

Twilight continued to replace Nyx's bandages in utter silence until Celestia spoke.

“Twilight, may I ask you something?”

“No,” Twilight replied bluntly.

“Do you blame those cultists for the events that transpired the night they finished their spell?” Celstia continued undettered by Twilight's remark.

Twilight pondered..."Well, they kidnapped my daughter and then they imprisoned, mind-warped and nearly executed me. Gee... what do you think?"

Celestia remained silent.

"Though perhaps the only good thing they've ever done in their worthless lives was bringing me Nyx into my life. So I might forgive them just a tiny little?" Twilight added on.

“I guess everypony needs forgiveness as we’ve all done stupid things we wish we could undo.”

Celestia nodded looking away, reflecting on the night she took Nyx from Twilight.

"Though I still don't forgive you. You fat-ass son of a bitch." Twilight muttered under her breath.

So I was in my boutique making some dresses when AJ barges in. Well finally that farm mare has finally caved in and chose to dressed in sty-

Princess Luna is in my shop... Princess Luna... is in my shop...Oh Sweet Celestia PrincessLunaisinmyshop!!! Where's my fainting couch!!!


[Testimony by the Element Bearer of Generosity: Take 2]

Soooo... what do I think of Nyx... well she certainly is what I'll call a proper mare just like I taught her to. She keeps my sister (occupied) company when I work. She saved Ponyville but she also imprisoned my sister. I'm torn on this question... I would forgive her but I doubt the rest of Equestria would...

I guess my best answer is that she does need to be published but properly. Enough with all of that "To The Moon" nonsense. So I have to ask... what do you; Princess Luna, plan to do as her punishment? Well, I certainly hope you're not going to decide her fate by spinning on a spinning wheel with icons labelled such as "Banishment to Moon", "Community Service" or "Boiled in Oil". Cause that would be sil-

[Testimony by the Element Bearer of Loyalty, Laughter and Kindness]

What do I think. What do I think!?! She nearly plunged Equestria into eternal night and that affected a lot of ponies!!! After all she’s done, you can't just forgive her and everything will be fine and dandy? But don’t get me wrong, she saved Ponyville from those monster attacks but really hasn't the rest of us been doing that for quite some time. Hero worship on that regard really degrades after a while. Unfortunately....

Well... urm, if you don't mind and all, I... urm... I would forgive her...

Fluttershy! You can't be serious! Nightmare Mo-

Nyx! Her name is Nyx, Rainbow Dash! Would you banish Nyx to the moon?

No, I wouldn't wish for that for Nyx. But at least have her lock up in a dungeon or jail or something for a few years. At least it's better than a thousand years... Urm... No offence Princess Luna....

Jail! No! No no no! That's still too harsh! We forgive good ponies. Nyx isn’t a bad pony. She hasn’t hurt anypony except for maybe Trixie when we used our Elements on her! She just took our elements and left us be.

Ya! Like any cliché villian!

And I would have bested a villain like Nightmare Moon with one of my awesome plans.

Rainbow, those plans will be half-baked and end in complete disaster.

Yeah, and half-baked plans are like half-baked cakes just like those baked bads you made AJ!!!


Nyx needs to answer for her misdeeds! The rest of Equestria would want that!

No, she deserves to be forgiven!

I would forgive her! I like Queen Nyxie. Have her stick around some more. Plus I'm planning for her a super fun-eriffic ‘Thanks-For-Saving-Ponyville-From-A-Bunch-Of-Scary-Monsters’ party and we wouldn't want her banished for that! She would miss all the fun stuff we could do like musical chairs, pin the tail on the pony, blowing out the candles of her cake, opening her presents, the balloon animals, maybe even put a little bit of dru-

[Testimony by Cutie Mark Crusaders]


Anyway, we’re Nyx’s best friends! A fellow crusader through and through. She defended us from Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon for ponies sake! She even went to defend our town from a monster attack! She's fun to be with, kind, awesome, playful and an amazing actor in our school play. Even if she did played herself. Point is, Nyx is a great friend and we hate to see her go. If anything banish Twilight. You wouldn't believe the things she tried to do with us when we were trapped in the same cell as her.

"I have returned sister." Princess Luna said flying through the castle bedroom window.

"Have you decided what is to become of Nightmare Moon.." Princess Celestia asked.

"Yes. but I would like to talk to Nightmare Moon alone before I pass my final judgement."

"Alright." Princess Celestia said leaving the room with Twilight trotting disgruntly behind her. As Twilight approached the door, she turned back to face Nyx giving her a weak smile before leaving.

Nyx glanced anxiously at Princess Luna whom stared back at her blankly.

"Nightmare Moon or Nyx, you stand accused of high treason against Equestria. You have committed crimes against the ponies of this kingdom as well as my sister and I, the High Princesses of Equestria. You have brought about two weeks of constant night to this land. You unjustly imprisoned one adult mare and three young fillies. Your agents, the Children of Nightmare, spread fear throughout the land and almost succeeded in executing an innocent unicorn. Above all, you usurped Equestria’s throne by imprisoning both me and my sister in the moon and sun respectively. Do you deny any of these claims?"

Nyx flinched at those accusations but she stood her ground. “No… I do not.”

“Before I pass my judgment, Nightmare Moon, I would ask you one question. Are you willing to answer it truthfully?”

Nyx replied with a simple nod.

“Earlier, just before you surrendered yourself to Celestia and I, you said something to Twilight Sparkle. What did you say?”

“I just told her that I know the pony I want to be.”

"And what pray tell is who you want to be? What are you exactly? Are you the miscarriage of a summoning spell? Are you Nyx, the mischievous daughter of Twilight Sparkle or Nightmare Moon, the embodiment of the sins of an alicorn? Who are you?" Luna asked.

Nyx stared at Princess Luna intensely.

"I will not deny the past of my origins. But now I know that I am more than just that. A faded shadow of you. As Nyx, I learnt how to actually live life and I treasure these memories created. As Nightmare Moon, I learnt strength and power but what I used it for was to protect the ponies I cared for as Nyx. That small window of being Nyx has left a mark on my entire being that I happily embraced. I am my mothers daughter after all."

“The name I choose as my own is Nyx however I am both Nightmare Moon and Nyx for they are one and the same. And the mare I want... I chose to be is both. The mischievous little foal and the protector of fellow ponies!” With that Nyx stomped her hoof, the sounds of it echoing across the entire bedroom.

Luna's eyes narrowed upon Nyx's final sentence. Her horn glowing...

“Then, Nyx, I lay my judgment upon you.”

No. That's not what will happen to Nyx next chapter. But I'm pretty sure that's how Celestia in Letters From A Disgruntled Friendship Student might end up doing...
