Tree of Harmony by cmaggot Tree of Harmony by cmaggot
I loved the season 4 premiere, and I drew this right after it aired but didn't get around to finish it until now.

Hey cmaggot. I really like your work, and was wondering if I could ask to use this as a picture for another song. Again, with credit of course. This is a pretty awesome piece.

Here's the one for this pic. It's ambient music, but hopefully that's okay.

Luna: What are we going to do if Malefor returns and strikes again?

Celestia: We have to use the Tree of Harmony to seal him in and this time, he will stay imprisoned.

Luna: We would have the bearers give up their Elements?

Celestia: That's not entirely true. *show images of Spike morphing into Harmonic Spike* Twilight and her friends are the bearers of the Elements of Harmony.....but Spike contains the same abilities as the six, but he has the power to morph into Harmonic Spike. The only way to set off the Tree of Harmony is to have Spike morph in the vicinity of the tree.

Luna: Only if Malefor strikes at Equestria again.

Celestia: Only if he strikes back.

With Celestia and Luna's cutie marks present on it...I have a feeling they already had connections to the Tree.

Could this mean they had some role in the Everfree Forest's first sprouting?

I think they are not just powerful unicorns but actual pony manifestations of the Sun and the Moon, and as such part of how Equestria works on a very primeval level. Just like the elements aren't pony-made artifacts but parts of the workings of the world.... In my head at least... Maybe the box with the six key-holes will clear things up a little. :D

Ever since that one book stated Celestia (implying Luna is, too) is part of a Cosmic Council, I've taken to calling beings like them and Discord "cosmics".

Celestia and Luna, to me, are themselves cosmics of harmony, considering they take the form of ponies with the traits of earth ponies, pegasi, and unicorns. I imagine they helped a cosmic of nature grow this Tree of Harmony as a heart of the Everfree Forest...

Y'know, it would be pretty cool if we got an episode where the Everfree Forest is threatened with destruction, and the cosmic watching over it distrusts ponykind and refuses the Mane 6's help, revealing more about the forest than shown before.

For some reason, there hasn't been that much art or stories featuring the Tree. This looks very good!

I thought it was such a striking scene. And I've always wanted to do a picture of the princesses questing to find the Elements, and the season 4 premiere gave me a perfect reason. :D

You ever wondered what the hay the tree was grown for?

I thought it was said in that episode, that it was to keep the Everfree forest in check, though I might not be recalling that correctly.

Why did the Everfree need containment, and if so, who created the Tree and the Elements?

*shrugs* Personally, a part of me doesn't want the show to go into the exact origins of the elements, out of fear of it ruining their mystique or becoming a plot tumor/voodoo shark...but another part of me is begging to know how.

I like the mystique too. It's makes it mythology, so it doesn't always need an explaination or even to always make perfect sense. :)
