I love to write, and I'll write just about anything. I seem to be most well known for my stupid little comedy pieces though...

I know the exact day she will return. I have a good idea of where. I've been planning for this day for hundreds of years. My plans are perfectly in place. I'm sure everything will be fine.

Just one more night, and I'll finally see my sister again.

Maybe.

I don't know if I can face her.


AN: Queen of Nothing and this one are sister stories. While neither are needed for the other, they complement each other.

The Nightmare uses Her stars to escape her prison, Twilight and her ‘stars’ use the elements to help free Her.

That's fucking deep, dude. I never even thought of that. Part of me hopes it was intentional, but maybe not.

Either way, this story was really good. I wish more stories would be written about Celestia's regret over the Nightmare Moon incident. The show did plenty with Luna's guilt, but I always imagined Celestia spent a thousand years anguishing over it. And every night, when she looked up at the moon, she saw a physical reminder of what she did.

Man I had been waiting for this for a while. It was really interesting to see this from Celestia's PoV and her introspections. I also noticed the mention of Sunset Shimmer, do you have plans to expand on this AU?

I mean.... If it wasn't intentional, they really lucked out. It just fits so damn well.

Yes, I do. Maybe not with Sunset directly, but I've got ideas for this world. I've been working on it in the background.

I'd love to see the moment when *this* Celestia and Luna finally meet again, considering what went on in Queen of Nothing.

"I must admit that it is wonderful to actually be looking forward to the Summer Sun Celebration.
…...
For my subjects, it has always been a celebration of my defeat of Nightmare Moon. But for me... [sighs] It was just a terrible reminder that I'd had to banish my own sister."

But she was vain and greedy. Too demanding. I don't think she could ever have made friends. Minions and underlings, sure. But she saw herself equal to me, and she didn't have the compassion or empathy to care for anyone she thought beneath herself. The Elements would never have answered to her. Perhaps in desperation, like they answered my plea so long ago, but not without great risk to Sunset.

I showed her the mirror in hopes that... something would change. I’m not sure what I was thinking. That it might temper her greed? That it might bring her some sense of humility? She was right about it being a mistake. I can see that now.

Too demanding? oh celestia i would have thought by now you have had the inner reflection to realize you did the same thing you did to Luna, you pressured her tried to mold sunset into what you needed to fight your battle, and in the end you made another nightmare moon, she had her flaws but it was you that drove through them and shattered her

I thought that Celestia would have a panic when everything went not according to plan, when the moon went down without her participation, and the sister never came to her.
somehow too calmly she accepted the fact that she does not know what to do next.

It's too easy to push all the blame on Celestia. I'd advise against the urge. Luna is not some helpless infant; she was the one who decided she was more fit to rule by herself. That's why seeing Equestria now hurt her so much. She had concrete proof that the opposite of her claim was true. And she only had this proof because she forced Celestia to step up and be Equestria's sole ruler.

Having said that, Celestia does have an unfortunate weakness when it comes to ponies she wishes to have close to herself. I'm not quite sure why that is, to be honest. It seems they either start to see her as someone to challenge (Luna, Sunset Shimmer) or outsource their sense of self-worth to her (Twilight Sparkle, Blueblood from the looks of it here). Cadance managed to come out of it not much worse for wear... but let's not forget, Cadance is an Alicorn Princess in her own right.

Perhaps there really is something stifling about Celestia's attention. Perhaps it even has to do with Luna and Nightmare Moon. Isn't it possible Celestia, abandoned to guide all their little ponies on her own now, feeling that she had to do everything, and do everything right, began to micromanage those whom she considered friends and family.

I'm wondering what she meant when she said she "needs to do something" about Blueblood. Or if even she knew what she meant.

i dont really think it was all celestia fault with luna, both had a failure to communicate, in luna case she kept it all bubbled up inside her until it came too much for her and she was overwhelmed, she also isolated herself from her subjects i feel if she gone on a tour of equestria, she found many who not only loved the Luna princess but the night as well, but alas she didn't

And well with celestia in the context of this story she not taking responsibility for her failing, she stifled sunset because she was not a teacher trying to nurture a student but someone creating a solider with specific skills, for a vital mission and that with out telling sunset what it all for, imagine how frustrating that is, for all her talent it was never good enough for celestia, and one of the key aspect needed was friendship, but your cant force someone to make friends

I don't think she could ever have made friends

and yet your tried to force her to change into a pony who could
celestia here is blaming her failures on sunset, sunset was the greedy one, the two demanding student, failing to recognize once again she failed she driven a pony away with her failure

if you dont learn from history your doomed to repeat it

in the case of blue blood i think celestia tried a different approach to Luna, she spoiled him let him have anything he wanted, forgave his transgression. and gave him a massive sense of entitlement, he really does need to be humbled and shown being a honorary prince does not mean you can do whatever you want

so yeah need to fixed pity we never got to see that in canon

The other I hurt beyond all others.
