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.

so im going to guess that Celestia got jealous of how beautiful luna's night was.

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

This is how I think the story would go.
"Once there where two regal sisters who ruled the land of Equestria.
The elder sister Celestia controlled the day through the sun, while the
younger sister Luna controlled the night through the moon. Together
they brought about Peace and Harmony to Equestria and it's inhabitants.

"This was not to last as Celestia saw the inhabitants prefer her day over
 her sisters night, causing her to develop delusions of superiority over the
night and eventually turning Celestia into Solar Flare"

"The younger sister Luna tried to use the elements of harmony to heal her 
sister, but it failed. Forcing her to use their power to banish her sister into the
sun, leaving her the lone controller of both night and day."

What do you think?

I think its awesome! theres a site called Qfeast me and my friend actually have our own little Luna and Celestia oc's! except sonic versions..we love sonic honestly! ^-^" fanfics tv show books you name it we love it. but anyways with us we have our own solar flare and nightmare moon too! basically Luna and Solaria (our sonic version of celestia and luna oc's) live on gazen as a sunwolf and  a moonwolf. but gazenians being gazenians. well...they preffered the moon way more then the sun and so solaria is sad because no one appreciates her day. so this is kinda a good backstory for both Solaria's nightmare moon side Blazing sun and solar flare! if its ok with you could i use that as a backstory?
