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.

In the episode where Starlight Glimmer comes back. Twilight and Spike get Teleported to NMM place and Nightmare Moon said that she banished Tia to the moon not sun? And I thought since the Princess of the night got banished to the moon, why can't the Princess of the Day get banished to the sun

The right name would begin with Nightmare.

Once upon a time, in the magical land of Equestria, there were two royal sisters who ruled together, and maintained harmony throughout the land. But one day, the elder sister thought to herself, "I want more power. I need more power". She then confronted the youngest, and demanded that she give her power to her. The youngest refused. The eldest then turned into the power hungry Solar Flare. The youngest had no choice but to banish her sister, with one of the most powerful things in the land: The Elements of Harmony! She rose up against her older sister, and locked her permanently inside the sun. The younger took control of the sun and moon, becoming more powerful than she could ever be, even if she didn't like it.

Yay for being bored

I love this. Though in the luna-verse (witch I hate) Tia became solar flare because of greed i think celestia became solar flare because ponys hated the sun cus sumburns n stuff (stupid reason i know)

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 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?
