Light can not exist with out shadow, there is no day with out the night, Celestia is incomplete with out Luna.  This does capture that moment clearly, Luna's uncertainty as she stares up at the "mask" Celestia has worn for centuries, the unknowable unreadable expression. Defeated, and wondering if her sister has any mercy left for her.  It makes the next moment we're Celestia makes it clear she only has love for her sister and has been waiting much more touching.

the last bit was pure headcanon why the hell do people always say that kind of stuff about Celestia?

Sweet Celestia, I know what you mean. I love Luna, but I'm not going to hate Celestia for no good reason! These Luna fanatics make no sense to me...

not true there really wasn't much else she could doe she only holds half the elements luna held the other half. there wasn't anything else she could do but keep her locked away until the ponies that could weild all the elements where born. which took a looong time i feel sorry fr both of them how would you feel being told you had to wait 1000 years to see your only family member whole again?

My friend...I have typed that comment long ago....almost 3 months ago...i do feel sorry for both of them...but mostly for Luna. Luna was completely alone up yo the Moon, while Celestia had her subjects to "love" her, while Luna had noone. Ponies celebrate the comming of the summer with joy, praising Celestia...while in the same time, the only celebration that has to do with Luna (Nightmare Night) is based on the fear ponies had for her. Isnt that a bit sad? To be alone on the Moon, away from your family and feared from everyone, even when you become who you once were? And as I said before...I do feel sorry for both of them...but I feel more sorry for Luna than Celestia.

In my head-cannon luna was asleep the entire time even while she was within the nightmare. and truthfully watching everything you loved grow old and die is even sadder than being alone it's a different kind of loneliness. BTW nightmare night started after the nightmare moon and it probably started as a pagan celebration like our Halloween did it was never meant to be a night of fear. and the ponies liked the fact that she scared them even if she didn't understand that until later. Besides back then i doubt the threat of timberwolves and other pony eating beasts was contained to the forest. Ponies are like us diurnal the sleep in the night becuse they have no night vision and it's safer than stumbling into a predator that can see you but you can't see them. i feel more sorry for celestia than luna her sisster tries to kill her/ is taken over and she can't save her becuse luna holds the elements of loyalty, generosity, and honesty. half of the elements and she needs them all to save luna but to save luna she needed luna that had to have cut her heart open then see watches all her friends grow old and die without the companionship of luna. Hell luna got the better end of the deal she wasn't even in control she was sleeping she knew years had passes but she didn't live them nor was she really alone if the nightmare was with her it wanted to keep her happy so it could stay in control.  But i think my real problem with luna is that all the problems she had could have been solved by simply talking to her sister.

Excellent! I really like how you did the...well, everything. The style of pony is great, especially the eyes and the wings, and the way you have that...I dunno' what to call it...coming from the shards is really cool, and you made it look like it's actually coming off of/out of them. Luna's mane looks different from any way I've seen it before, and Celestia's armor too - very unique. Overall, a job well done!

Luna's loneliness weakened her spirit and she became possessed by a demon of nightmare.

Yeah, he really, really is. I called him out on leveling incorrect assumptions at me and he blocked me.

Celestia's angry look kills it for me. This was supposed to be a joyous (sort of) reunion, not Celestia's damning her sister.

Rewatched the scene. I've always seen that expression as incredibly awkward/peculiar/inaccurate. It always seemed like it should've been friendlier.

Not quite par for the course, but that's what happens when you start leveling assumptions.

This is the same lady who proceeded to forgive her with ease despite the heinous crimes she may or may not be responsible for.

Leveling assumptions incorrect.

I did not deny the fact that she forgave her sister, I'm simply reminding you that her duty to her people must come first.
