in my opinion this is completely true, if ponies existed this is what would've happened, the alicorns have a serious superiority complex and no matter how "Great" and "Wonderful" they pretend to be they are still disgusting....perhaps even more than humans those who create "harmony" (which is really just a monarchy where they are the supreme rulers and everything they say is law) also create chaos.....they created discord but have the guts (actually more like stupidity) to call him the bad guy and say that everything he did was wrong...................... but in reality it is really only Celestia who is in the wrong....Luna probably didn't even know about the flower incident and assumed that Discord was simply evil and took her sisters side....but after a while Luna found out about it and became nightmare moon (not to mention that she was fed up with her sisters considerably larger superiority complex) and thought that she could rule with the eternal night much better then a tyrant queen with the sun. All in all Princess Celestia is the one true evil in all of ponydom and in my opinion a little pain in ones life helps shape them into a better person....Celestia knows no pain other then perhaps loneliness and never had the chance to be molded into a true "harmonious" being and is therefore a tyrant that does nothing but cause pain to those around her even those she has dubbed "important" either to herself or ponies in general.
Ps: I understand that this basically goes against most of the stuff you said, but this is my opinion mixed with what I gathered from this comic.......I have a low opinion of Celestia.... because of the points above and more stuff that I do not care to get into right now, anyway great art a fantastic job, I luv u!
I see your point but disagree with it. In this cannon you can see that both Tia and Luna are teenagers. Children. And it takes a hard look back to see no matter how cruel adults are...children are crueler... because they don't know any Better. Celestia wouldn't know anything of discord but what those she loved...she cherished and trusted told her about him about his kind. The real monsters here where the Alicorn society Back then we can see from hearts warming eve there was such a thing as Racial discrimination it was common place the races of ponies hated each other and it was their hate for each other that brought unto them the cold ones after discord's imprisonment. In the absence of the constant fear he kept them in there was no time to hate eachother. with him gone the cold ones came and they destroyed. Luna isn't innocent here either she would have heard the same things about him that Celestia had learned from her parents. she would have hated him just like her sister because they didn't know any better and after he destroyed their families their race because they had been foolish enough to hate.
I see your point here as well, and I believe what I said might have been taken the wrong way, you see, while I hold a low opinion of Celestia, I don't entirely hate her, I understand that with her family dead by discord's race and the influences of the current time, that her judgment was impeded by emotions and influenced by war. I'm not saying it was all o her, and that Luna was completely innocent, only that a good bit of it WAS her fault and that in her young age she was to stupid to account for it, and even now in her older age she still seems to hold DIscord accountable.
Not really you see i think she created a society where there was no more hate after that society not olny took her family from her including her sister but turned the both into monsters. it's not her fault not really she didn't love him that's not her fault she was afriad of him that's also not her fualt it's like me telling a child that being afraid of the dark is there fault as the adult it's my job to teach them NOT to fear the dark but the things in that can hurt you it's like me tellig you you are stupid for begin afraid of night predators. just like it fell to her parents to teach her not to fear what you don't understand. it isn't her fault he loved her and it isn't her fault she feared him. it's the fault of her society and that's what i'm trying to say we are shaped by our societies and she was shaped by hers. And whose to say Discord is innocent here? Why would she look past her fear of him if she had seen his rather cruel games from affar? what makes you think he didn't do something to make her fear him even though he didn't mean to? He didn't have parents and like i said children are cruel unless we teach them not to be. what if his games because he likes games...what if they where cruel to someone who knows the difference? I took this to be a study in how what we teach our childred shapes how they affect the world. And celestia had to learn a hard lesson one her parents didn't bother to teach her one society forbid. i understand you thoughts it's just they seem off to me becuse these are my thoughts on the matter. I'm not saying she's not to blame...but i'm saying she is and she isn't at the same time. Luna well she's a nother matter entirely she isn't nearly as powerful as her they clue you into that by her name She is luna and luna's light is the sun's light reflected. she has powers of her own but her sister's probally shares them seeing as her sister can raise the sun, moon and stars becuse she is the sun and she is a star. She's not ike luna who isn't a star but the sister to the stars. luna was created for earth and she came after the sun....and the sun can take that light away if she wills it. i think luna knows this deep down but when there where more of them...her's sister's powers didn't seem so special.. i think that it's case of not understanding the praise given and that feeling of inherent inferiority she probally felt she's younger her sister is so powerful she want's to live up to that she felt that she failed...it's like when you lash out at a sibling for being better at you in something you care about more than they do.. Hmm i doubt Celestia cared about the honor the pnies gave her she simply saw it as her duty and was happy to do it...after failing so completely with discord(in her eyes) luna saw it as a chance to be equal to her sister in all that her sister does which is impossible becuse she isn't her sister...she's luna and she didn't understand in her youth that even though her sister could do many things...there where things she couldn't that luna could.. i'm not making sence i'm trying to say that luna tired to hard to be her sister and not herself.
Basically But i can't dislike her for that as she shows later that the picture he saw of her..wasn't who she really was. What happened ot luna is sad though she tired so hard to be her sister that she didn't realize she was loved because she was herself and celestia didn't notice most siblings don't notice things like that until it gets to that point because their siblings don't want them to notice. Celestia didn't care about the praise but Luna did it's sad isn't it?
Wow. This comic was....beautiful! I absolutely loved it! I never really cared much for Discord x Celestia, but this changed my view. I actually don't really mind it. This comic was so great, I feel like I should do something like this with Strife, my OC and Discord's daughter. All as humans though.
