Nightmare Moon: Alicorn. Bringer of Eternal Night. Ruler of Equestria.

Luna's little sock puppet.

She scowled at the thought, before darkness took her mind again.


Curse the name.

Huh. This is an interesting perspective. Not often do you see Nightmare Moon justified by means of Luna's actions. Normally it's Celestia who gets that end of the stick.

Unique and nicely written.

Only valid response is...
And all what I can do is only to hope for sequel.

creative and intriguing. It is brilliantly written well done!:pinkiehappy:

Huh, I wonder if in this universe when the Mane 6 obtained the Elements they freed Nightmare Moon and destroyed Luna rather than the other way around?

What would that do to Celestia's psyche?

6970271 Wow, I hadn't even thought about that! Great idea! I personally was going for an alternate interpretation of canon rather than AU. I personally think the Elements could not or would not be able to spare Nightmare Moon, as her tendency for violence is an inherent part of her existence (being formed from dark magic and hatred), like Chaos is to Discord, even if she wished she could change.

This is wonderful! :rainbowdetermined2:

Usually when Nightmare is treated like a separate entity, it's Luna who is forced against her will. Here it's Nightmare who is forced against her will.

That's what I love about Nightmare Moon, she's like Hamlet, everyone has their interpretation of it.

6970877 I'm actually surprised I've never seen this take on their duality. The kicker's that it came to me while reading a Tantabus fic.

Anyway, glad you liked my story! :twilightsmile:

Not bad, a fresh perspective on an old character. Never thought about Nightmare being Luna's anger outlet, someone/thing she can blame for her immoral actions. Good job.

6968681 The possibilities for suffering and angst stories are endless :pinkiecrazy:

I would like to believe that when the elements hit Luna the second time with the main 6 celestia Luna and everyone else sees nightmare being released from her prison with the sweet release of death.
