mlp:fim The Legend of Solar Flare by emeralddarkness mlp:fim The Legend of Solar Flare by emeralddarkness
SOME OF YOU MAY REMEMBER like 4 months ago when I submitted this which was ORIGINALLY done for the Equestria Daily Training Grounds (yes, that long ago) challenge of drawing the evil counterpart of a pony.

Then I got some commissions and so this became my sanity piece that I worked on for a change of pace, then my computer got a virus, but finally here we are.

Anyway. Evil Celestia in storybook style, which is fun but SURPRISINGLY HARD. I have named her Solar Flare, because Flare sounds like Mare and that was the best pun me or my friends could come up with. Shut up, Nightmare Moon is a hard act to follow, all right? Anyway, she's red rather than the usual trick people pull of keeping evil!Celestia white because I went by this logic: Luna is dark blue, and Nightmare Moon is black. Celestia is light pink, so clearly Solar Flare should be red. BRILLIANT.

What's the story with this though? Luna's made sense since people slept at night, but how's it work with Celestia?

Wonderfully well done... though I am very glad this was not nor ever would be canon. Let Luna keep her status as the Fallen Hero, Apocalypse Maiden (shades of anyway), The Redeemed, and the Atoner with her My Greatest Failure being becoming Nightmare Moon. This is what originally made her so interesting for others. That and it would allow Celestia to keep her status as a Mare Wearing the Queenly Mask who Did What She Had To Do with her moment of My Greatest Failure being having to banish her sister... as well as many other failures.

This looks great! But I think your missing the part that shows why Celestia became angry in the first place.
