Dialogue by her.


Luna/Nightmare Moon (unbeknownst to Celestia) was with foal when she was banished, and she is forced to give birth in her lunar exile. She attempted to save her last breath of air from Equestria for her foal, but it failed to sustain the infant... and so she died after the air left her--leaving behind her anguished, exiled, mother.



Paternity is irrelevant--the foal's colors are simply the colors of dawn. Besides, I would think that immortal alicorns reproduce differently anyways... cosmic dust or special magic or something.
Armor intentionally left off. You try giving birth with armor on.

CS3.

EDIT: Decided to tag it mature, just in case.


EDIT2: The foal is not Cadence.

This piece conveys her anguish magnified by isolation most effectively.

This is a truly tragic piece of art...... the fact that it could possibly be true and further cause Luna to fall to The Nightmare just makes all the more tragic.......... not too mention the loss of an innocent soul........ Tragic is the word of this..... now please excuse me........ I need some time to myself.

I can just imagine that, a moment after this, she threw her magic against that trapping her there. Desperately trying to summon, to rip, air from Equestria which is there almost taunting her.

Then, when that mad moment passes, when all is too still and silent she begins to hate...

In Modern-Day Equestria, Talon the Superfox is given a time machine!
Its purpose is to go to different times and alter the course of the past, present, and future!
It is the only way to save Past, Present, and Future Equestria, and it is now in Talon's hands!
Now, becoming the Kryptonian Time Traveler, it is Talon's duty to save those of the past, present and future from losing what matters most and allow everypony to live on the same world together!
Is he ready for such a burden? Sit down and find out!

how is it possibly Celestia's fault? Are we given any evidence that she knew? Furthermore, even if she could have known, she only used the Elements. They decided Luna's place of banishment. It was this or let Luna kill every living thing in Equestria by destroying the ecosystem, including this foal.
