Though her outward appearance shone brighter than the sun, though her coat gleamed like freshly fallen snow, and she smiled with sincere beauty...Her eyes told the truth. Her eyes were old and timeless, they reflected the tortured soul hidden beneath a mask of perfection. She could not hide it. - Sekretoj, Scribe Of Princess Celestia's Court.

My only possible companion locked away. Damn the Nightmare. To the absolute bowels of Tartarus.
I am so, very, tired."

It's odd how many people would not realize the truth of this image, that everything that is gone through leaves a mark, even if it is not a visible one. That the person other people see in the mirror, is not necessarily the person (or pony in this case) that you see in the mirror. Wonderfully done.

Is there meant to be something else in the mirror, there looks like an outline of a small pony/tail?

Incredibly melancholic, but brilliantly drawn, it's immersive, emotive, and beautiful in a tragic way, great piece, though I feel awful for Celestia.
