So I was thinking, since this thread is about both sisters what time would be the best to praise both at once. /sun/ has Sunday, /moon/ has Monday. Then it hit me. Since both days are right next to each other, it would surely be Sunday at midnight. Right between their respective days. What do you guys think?
>>994 Would be better to just do it when the sun and the moon are both in the sky. That would be like those religious holidays that have a rolling date.

>>64 I know this is image is supposed to be creepy, but I just want to hug her.
>>1517 Other than the weird black eye thing I could definitely see cuddling with her in the old castle while reading some books. Also, is it just supposed to be the standard black magic type thing or is there some other reason for it?
>>1527 I don't actually know anything about where this came from. But I'm fairly certain the location isn't just the old castle. With all those slimy tendrils, it looks more like something out of an H.P. Lovecraft story. I guess in that context, Celestia with weird black eyes is the closest to comforting thing there, especially with how soft her coat looks. And the black eyes just make her look sad. So, I still just want to hug her.
>>1532 >But I'm fairly certain the location isn't just the old castle. With all those slimy tendrils, it looks more like something out of an H.P. Lovecraft story. I don't know that slimy tendrils would necessarily be that out of place in the Everfree. But they do kind of look like they're coming out of the books. Could be somewhere else entirely, Castle of the Two Sisters is just what I thought of when I saw it. >I still just want to hug her. Me too.

>>3320 That's an interesting question that I had never really thought about before. You would think at least a thousand years old. Something I noticed when I looked back at the depiction of the Princesses in the opening story book is that they had no regalia at first, then Luna gained some in the form of her transformation as Nightmare Moon, followed by Celestia wearing it once she started ruling by herself. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean anything. One could ask why Luna returned to normal with her own regalia after being blasted by the elements a thousand years later.
>>3322 I wonder if they came from when Celestia first wielded the elements (similar to the mane 6), Luna could have just copied later on.
>>3322 It looks more like they had no regalia at first. Then Celestia wearing the Element of Magic which has a crown shape and Nightmare Moon wearing a helmet and peytral. Then Celestia ruling alone wearing normal crown and peytral. I wonder if they to her represent the weight of that banishment? And it's not like we've never seen the elements conjuring jewelry from nowhere.
I bring princesses in battle armor, and an alternate depiction from the way back when times of... 2012 or 2011 I believe. Though we may have some of their canon origins at this point, I've grown so used to the ones presented earlier one that I am more partial to them than not. I've always liked the idea of the princesses emerging from humble stock, and growing to encapsulate all of the three tribes over time. This comic in particular was promising, but it died out early on its development. Still, I distinctly remember it being what got me into the concept in the first place. With this in mind, have a few throwbacks from the past. They aren't in canon compliance to be certain, but I find them to be good fics regardless of that fact. Just a few things from the wayback times you might enjoy. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/164355/temporal-visitor >Twilight had just invented a spell that can temporarily take something from the past and bring it to the present day in front of her.

>>3359 Nice. All the old fics are incredible works of art. Some of the sadly unfinished ones too. Night's Favoured Child, and Sunshine and Fire.
>>3360 I know of the latter at the very least. It's been a while since I last read it. It's one of the reasons why I am not as partial to the canonical nightmare version of Celestia, or Daybreaker as canon has christened the form. The name is definitely nice, but having only seen pictures of the form, it feels very off to me. It's probably due to years of consuming many a fan theory, interpretation and fic about the variations on what if Celestia turned bad, but Daybreaker strikes me as a just a cartoonesque version of a baddy from a Saturday morning cartoon, which considering the show at that moment in time was probably the point. I doubt the ones behind her creation had more thought in it than just getting the concept out the door, for which I do not blame them for seeing as they were just doing their job. Still, this depiction is all I see these days when it comes to evil Celestia, be it in discussion or fanfiction. No offense to anyone who does like it, just not to my tastes as someone who got to experience the other depictions before canon buried them for good. Just one more thing to add on to the pile, and one of the disadvantages of being an old fag coming in early on into the ride. In a way, I got a real taste of what the original trilogy fans of Star Wars probably felt when the prequels came along, and doubly so when the sequel trilogy hit and managed to taint what happened in the original trilogy. At least some of the content of the past remains, even if it is slowly being whittled down by being deleted for one reason or another. I still need to get around to archiving my personal bookshelves on FiM, just haven't found a way to do that well since they are literally in the thousands. On a site note, it appears two of my images I meant to post were rejected due to their file size. Pity, seeing as they were some of the better ones in my library. Guess I'll need to find a decent way to bring down the file size without ruining them in the process. I guess a JPEG might do the trick, maybe.
>>3365 https://www.fimfiction.net/story/5523/nights-favoured-child Celestia lost the first battle a thousand years ago.
>>3365 Even if following the (decrepit) canon, there is no legitimate reason an evil Celestia would need to resemble that. Daybreaker is literally just Starlight Glimmer's bad dream about possible outcomes of the episode's events.
>>3367 I was going to suggest much the same about Daybreaker possibly only being a figment of Glimmer's imagination. >>3365 I haven't read up on to many origin stories but one that does stand out is in The Exchange. As a side note, do you think Celestia was more pink prior to alicornification?
(72.26 KB 760x1051 1404983392830.jpg)
>>3369 I am firmly in the camp of "Pink Mane Celestia"
>>3369 >do you think Celestia was more pink prior to alicornification? Yes. She drank so much bleach that it turned her coat white and made her immortal.

>>3369 >>3367 I was going to post the Exchange, but I thought that one had already been posted by now. Not to mention it was already popular, so I erred on going for the more obscure stuff I could find in my archives. Still a good fic though, definitely. As for Celly, that may be true, but it still doesn't change the fact is that's the dominant evil Celestia now roaming about in the wilds. Be it in discussion circles or in fanfiction, it's Daybreaker and no other. Once canon has made something evident, that is what usually dominates in the fandom's zeitgeist. I imagine if something like the Lunaverse were still ongoing, they would probably have attempted to include Daybreaker, hell or high water no matter the damages it would have inflicted on that universe's mythos and lore. As it stands, a cursory search has revealed nothing for Solar Flare, Corona Blaze, or any of the other names for evil Celestia save for Daybreaker these days. Still, we do have the old stuff at least, for whatever that is worth.

>>1366 based
A blast from the fandom's past. There was an S1 Luna thread posted to /mlp/ over a few weeks ago, so I figured I might as well drop some of the images I didn't get to post here. Luna was a different princess back then, but much like with many a background pone, the fandom's artisans filled in the void with their own interpretations of what could be. Admitably, much of it has not aged as well as it could for reasons not related to what happened in canon besides, but that Luna will always have a place in my heart. Sadly for those like myself, this is more or less a dead interpretation. Nothing past 2012 has it, being long superseded by whatever Luna has since turned into. I've warmed up to the current Luna, but she'll never be what initially drew me to the younger princess. At least some of the archives with the character still exist for the time being. Who knows? Maybe one of these days I'll get off my ass and actually write something worth a damn about the character. I haven't had the inkling seeing as hardly anyone here or elsewhere would recognize the character, seeing as there are few oldfags left hanging on. But perhaps a small drabble or two shall suffice. Just need to check back with the older stories that haven't yet been updated to suit modern canon and figure out a decent prompt in which the two meet. -

>>4046 I'll keep this short for the time being, since I am on the verge of dropping dead on the bed, but I shall return with more detail as question arises. Put simply, S1 Luna arose in a vacuum during the interim between the end of S1 and Luna Eclipse. She is the offspring of a process that is responsible for the creation and proliferation of fan discussion, fanon, and the like back during the early days of the fandom. S1 Luna was a mare that could not be created at any other period during the fandom's history, being made at the sweet spot where the show had just enough of a foundation for its fans to speculate and build upon, but more than enough mystery for them to fill in the holes. We didn't have nine seasons worth of episodes and lore that filled in any and all of the blanks you could ever possibly want, rendering any further creation of fanon and show discussion pointless and moot. Think of it like this. How do you think things like the background ponies came into prominence like Octavia, Vinyl, Derpy Hooves, Carrot Top, Colgate, and so on? Simply put, they were distinctive elements that popped up repeatedly and/or in certain unique scenarios for a fandom rampant with speculation as to who and what they were, leading to the creation of many a fanfiction, fanon, art, and so on to fill the void. As such, a large part of their personalities and collective "lore" (Otherwise known as fanon or one's personal head canon.) was created during these initial stages. And since they came on early, they were able to build a momentum that other background ponies that came later on could not compete with, not to mention the show filling up more and more holes at that point in time. Why is it that later background ponies did not get the same treatment? For one, we already had background ponies who did quite nicely and had an ample supply of content for any would be waifuer and whatnot to latch on to for digestion, the same not being true to the same extent for anything newer. And two, the show was filling gaps to such an extent that there was simply little to no interest in them, to say nothing of the other stuff the fandom could be interested in at the time, say a controversy or two, other episode discussion, or leaning away from the Mane 6 in general. So, with all that being said, how does this relate to S1 Luna? In essence, she is, or rather was the quintessential dark horse for the franchise during its budding days. Besides Nightmare Moon and the lore episode 1 provided, we have but two lines of dialogue and a single scene with her. Yet speculation about her was *rampant* in those days, as well as to her sister Celestia. Interpretations and the like arose that would not survive to the present day were present, including stuff like this below.
>>4053 https://youtu.be/sf0tYs5U5RI There are only a few images in this video, but they give a hint as to how the fandom at large perceived both Celestia and Luna at the time. While by no means the only ones out there, they were among the dominant few that rose to prominence during the S1 and early S2 days. For the fandom, they saw Luna as an underdog. For Celestia, they saw a tyrant. I must stress before I continue however that they were again not the only ones budding around at the time. There was definitely a few other floating around, such as that Luna was an unrepentant bitch plotting in the background, waiting to get back at Celestia just at the right moment. Or that Celestia as an immortal goddess still grieved for her own sins against her flesh and blood. Regardless, Luna took her place as the cute woobie, and seeing as how a lot of the fandom's younger audiences could relate to that, it was inevitable that she took off. She had the perfect mixture of things going for her to propel this Luna to dominamce over her older sister, who in contrast managed to take an episode of a light bit of teasing with Twilight, and warp that into her being an absolute tyrant. Mind you, this was just a meme at the time, and only the most austistic and dysfunctional morons actually thought she was that. Or God forbid, taking their fanon as canon. But regardless, a lot of people latched on to such interpretations like a tyrant Celestia and a wounded, broken hearted Luna, and ran with it, similar to how the Pinkie Pie was depicted early on with Pinkamena, some of which also had to do with the internet zeitgeist at the time that allowed for the creation of such stuff. As for what I liked about her, I must concede I was a fan of the fandom at the time on top of being a fan of the show when there were no such things as the Twilicorn or Equestria Girls to get in the way of pony. For me, the fan content was an excellent bonus on a show that was shaping up be a very promising thing in a similar vein to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Oh, if only I knew what I was getting myself into when I jumped on the ride, but I digress. As I was saying, I like S1 Luna because she was cute and had a few good stories and art to her name which I liked. Not to mention there was plenty of fan content for her in the first place to be enjoyed. If the fandom had remained creatively sterile and somehow managed to resist the urge to create *any* fan content for the show, then quite simply S1 Luna would be even more of an obscure footnote than she already is. But as it stood, S1 Luna was a *very* popular character, popularized by fics like Progress and the like. Speaking of, here's a decent catalog of fics from back in the day preserved in their original format. https://www.deviantart.com/jlryan/gallery/36883186/ereader-ready-ponyfic-pdf-s
>>4054 I suggest you browse through these to get an idea of how it all was back then. Word of advice, go into these fics by pretending anything past seasons 1 through 2 never happened. It'll be easier for you to immerse yourself that way. We may not have the videos or fan discussion of the way back when times any more, but there still exists the fics, and even some of the comments for back then. Many of those fics linked here will also provide a link to their Equestria Daily articles, which should give you a clue on the discussions happening in their comment section at the time. A snapshot of the fandom's history. Overall, while some may have disdained the woobie interpretation of the character and consign it to the dustbins of history, she was nonetheless a mare that exist in the fandom's heart, if only briefly in the time she was with us before being sent to the Jossed pits of oblivion. And a couple old Youtube vids as a bonus. https://youtu.be/TkpRUhdVNmU https://youtu.be/h0l28Qmj9MY Speaking of jossed, it still annoys me at the fandom's collective inability to compartmentalize shit. It was my thought that while S2 Luna would come to be the dominant one, I at least thought that the original interpretation that so much work went into would still persist along with many other things. Needless to say, I was wrong. Dead wrong. And thus my slow resentment for the show began. While I did not outright hate the show, I began to fear other episodes of the ilk like Luna Eclipsed. If the fandom was so eager to jettison stuff like that from the past, what else would they get rid of? And come Equestria Girls and Twilicorn, plus the random introduction of Cadence and TWilight's brother who we had *never* heard of before the very episode they appeared in, it was easy to see the cracks that led to the finale that was S8 and S9. Perhaps things could have been averted, but S2 was where I more or less jumped ship and only occasionally popped my head in to see what was up, preferring to dabble in the fanfic side of things to keep it up, at least for a time. Some of what came after was enjoyable, but the taint of things rushed too soon, ala Twilicorn, or the stuff that should have never made it into the show because it diluted the essence of what made the ponies special, ala Equestria Girls, ala every fucking high school girls drama airing now and eternity, and the show filling in cracks that did not need to be filled... Well, there isn't that much left for a sentimental oldfag like myself. But I still remain, because I love pony. Perhaps it would have been better to jump ship while I still had the chance, but I am afraid that pony hooked its claws far too deep for that to be possible. I feel like a damned original trilogy fan watching their beloved franchise slowly be warped beyond recognition by the prequels, and then the horrid sequels for the Star Wars franchise. I got a taste of that early, before the sequels were even a thing. If you want to find out more pony fiction, Fimfiction and the Pony Fiction Vault are good places to start if you keep yourself to anything published in 2011. Fimfiction less so since a lot of the fics there did eventually update themselves to suit S2 canon and beyond, like Past Sins. But it's good as a general rule of thumb, and if you look at the completed stuff with anything above thirty to fifty likes, you should be good. Anyway, I must retire for now. This post went far beyond what I expected to, but it was nice to reminisce. Enjoy the pony, and make merry with it all. Also, have this vid by Aurelleah. It captures my headcanon for S1 Luna's voice quite well. https://youtu.be/ubOM_gDCLPQ And as an added bonus, have this topical HK song. https://youtu.be/xtGCR7HrRlI
>>4055 Wasn't expecting such a detailed response. Overall an interesting read through. So I'm assuming the whole New Lunar Republic thing was a part of all that? I never really read too much of it so I don't really know.
>>4055 I'm kind of embarrassed to reply to a post so much better than anything I could write. But I need to say that even though I came in after season 2, your post parallels my melancholy. There really seemed to be much smaller of an abyss between us and pony back then.
>>4053 >>4054 >>4055 Woah man, I was expecting like two paragraphs. Thanks for the great response. I'm too tired to really read this right now but I'll be going through all of it first thing tomorrow for sure.

>>4058 The NLR was part of it all, yes. I only managed to capture a small part of the greater fandom at the time. There is still so much more to explore, but I figure you should browse some of the stuff of the way back when era to get a feel for it. As said, a lot of what made it special was what was coming out at the time. Seeing as how that it is lost, it isn't really possible to experience it. Not to mention all the deleted stuff on top of that, either because of the YouTube purges, accounts going offline, or for other reasons. Still, some of it is there if you know where to find it, like so. https://youtu.be/Pznlw6mpTJ8 This was a nice gif of dancing Luna, in particular when paired up with one of those Nightwish songs long since purged off the internet. I happen to have a copy myself, but seeing as how I know not which platforms to upload to, nevermind the copyright fiasco, it sits alone in my hard drive. Still, you can find stuff, and I'll be happy to answer any other questions as they come. >>4059 Just do it. Might as well have others to pile in to reminisce about the time so long ago. No harm in doing so. Besides, I am curious as to hear what an S2 fag has to say coming in. >>4062 Glad it was worth something. Hope it was decent.
>>4059 >>4147 I happened to click on random link which led to clip from "Hearth's Warming Eve", the summit of the three leaders. I immediately fell in love with ponies generally, it was otherworldly in a way that no other media ever has been. Within about a week, I had already watched every episode of seasons 1 and 2 at least twice. I same week started saving fanart including suggestive pony images to my hard drive. For me, Princess Luna was always defined by "Luna Eclipsed". I occasionally would see arts of the season 1 design, but I simply never had a conception of any other characterisation. I can't say I'm the most dedicated reader though, of fanfics or otherwise. Then season 3 aired and I watched every episode as it aired. And I was very open about my enthusiasm. I feel like I experienced the last days of the golden age. I had a lot of naive delusions about the fandom, though. I really assumed that people were generally into FIM because they perceived something similar to what I did; I didn't realise at the time that I was (part of?) a tiny exception. So when EQG came out, I recognised it as a worthless cash grab without needing to watch it. And I assumed the fandom would similarly reject it. I watched season 4, every episode as it aired again. Then came the second EQG film, which the fandom absolutely loved. I watched both at that time, barely containing my vomit, then wholly seperated from the fandom. I still loved pony, but I felt frustrated like there was no longer content to reflect that. It made me resentful, even angry sometimes. Over next few years, I would go long times without pony content. However I would occasionally catch up to all the latest episodes. I watched seasons 5-8 like that. I did notice a decline in quality. Any way, I burnt through what worldly entertainment there is, and reached my unimpressive limits of worldly accomplishment. So when the final season was about to start, I viewed it as last chance to have the experience of watching the new episodes live. Even though season 9 episodes are far from good, I quite enjoyed this. Then came the post-FIM reconsideration. I began to question what makes the difference between early FIM and late FIM feel so different. I began to seperate the good from the bad. I began regularly rewatching the show. And then events of 2020-present totally discredited anything worldly. And my love of pony, though somewhat damaged, was the one thing far enough from reality to survive that.

Hello, I wrote a poem about Luna. Reposting from the main thread. https://ponepaste.org/6124 >Pristine white, frigid gold. >Raven black, argent-hot. >Two eternal thrones. >Kneeling, for stand they dare not. >"Griffins are gnashing on our bones!" >Crimson wine, scarlet carmine >Eldrtich, piercing thunder. >"Matters not, whose is the grass, when everypony lie under." >"Hast thou not been enough fighting for the pastures?" >"Fallen heroes will not raise, lost in pointless sqabbles--" >Teal depths, long black wave. >Stirred endless abyss. "Matters not, who is in the wrong, matters who survives." "Sick We got, to balance the lot," "No matter the sin, persih will not, those who We care about!" >Wings of blue, lance of light >Blast, displaced air! >Empty throne. >"Sister, no!" >Silence was Her only answer. >Mountain peak, tall and bleak. >Wretched ghastly fortress. >Lion's guts, eagle's beak, >Wings and paws. Ugly freak. >Talons hold a bloody morcel. >Cages, corrals, dull wide eyes. >Fear, blood, filth and anger. >"Those weak, they must feed the strong one's hunger!" >"Griffins feast, as they please. Tis' our rightful prey and plunder!" >"By the will of the gods we all live under!" >Swirl of stars, black cuirass. >Cold, contemptous laughter. >Cobalt scorn, looming storm, >Not a word, a mere thought, >A defeaning strike of thunder. >Grumble, wails, clatter, crash, >Bloody mist and cracked ground. >White and fluffy, mixed with ash, >Feathers whirl around. >And the former proud peak is now a mere mound... >Fierce beauty, harsh firm gaze, >Regal face full of disdain. "Abject losel, hast thou sought to threaten Us with Our domain?" "We are reigning in the skies! Two of Us -- no one else around." "We are reigning in the skies, and over those on the ground!" >Broken fences and corrals, >Cages, splinters, snapped chains. >Timid steps of saved herd. "Come, Our children! Do not fret! "No filthy creature have survived." >Pristine white, frigid gold. >Raven black, argent-hot. >Two eternal thrones. "Why, o Sister, why is that "They see nightmares, but with griffin bones?!" >Snowy wings, enfold and hold. >Noble eyes, genuine tears. "Saved them are We not?" >"Sister, have, or not, We told?" >"But Thou didst not listen..."

Unlike a normal pony, you don't have to look down to look her in the eyes, you don't necessarily have to be the big spoon all the time, and she has the weight to hold you down when she wants five more minutes together in the morning. Many such reasons. Celly is truly built for human-sized cuddles.
>>6807 As long as you love her for the pony she is as well. She is an extremely cute and cuddly pony, so of course that's part of the appeal as well.

On that note, I know canon wise we more or less know of their origins, but I was always more partial to the two coming from humble origins and ascending to become the beloved princesses we know today. That, or actually being something else. Even have a gryphon Celestia bumbling about in my mind, waiting to be written. But in anycase, does anyone here have any such stories and art they are willing to share? I am fairly certain I have more or less scraped the bottom of the barrel for fics and art in that regard since canon has more or less defined them at this point into what they are now. Been stuck trying to figure out how to write something to fill the void, but no dice.

Random headcanon: young Celestia's mane wasn't actually pink as we see it, but self-luminous red. And Luna's coat (or at least the darker coat she sports as a grown mare) is stygian blue. Their coloration in artwork is merely an approximation due to the limitations of human eyesight. Colors we would consider impossible or imaginary are visible in Equestria.
>>12005 I like that. Royal siblings are eldritch and fascinating.
>>12005 Interesting. You know, I bet it would be possible to make fan art in that color by shaping the fatigue template differently. I'll try editing Filly Sisters.png to be in the colors you are talking about.
(370.06 KB 2167x2141 canon_colors.png)
>>12010 Done. It works very well with filly Celestia but not at all with filly Luna; I think it would look good for Midnight though. With this proof on concept it is clear that these colors could be used for art. They would work best if a piece was made to naturally focus at the point where the X is so the image is seen as intended and not blurred out by lack of focus in key areas.
>>12012 Wow, anon, that's excellent work. I didn't expect someone to whip something up so quick, and it actually works! When I'm looking at the fatigue templates I can tell when my eyes have just about adjusted because the chimera color will start fading in like an aura around the outside edge of the template. Also, now that I'm seeing the stygian blue actually superimposed on Luna, it looks kind of close to Nightmare Moon's coat color actually.

>>4147 >>4055 >>4054 >>4053 >>4046 >>4045 >Early works by the Fandom on Luna's lore when less was known about her, that it has sadly disappeared, and that the later seasons aided that disappearance. I feel you Anons. I have only been on the ride for less than a year. Must have been great back in the day. Do we need to be so constrained by "canon" though? I love the show. There are even elements of the show past season 5 that I like. What I don't like I just take as a suggestion, a stepping off stone for my own imagination to explore further and reformulate. Then, that new reformulation becomes my own MLP. I don't think we need to stop imagining and creating things based around S1/S2 Luna just because the rest of the show exists. All the people that shout "canon!" in response. we can just ignore. Right?
>>13047 >I don't think we need to stop imagining and creating things based around S1/S2 Luna just because the rest of the show exists. All the people that shout "canon!" in response. we can just ignore. Right? I definitely agree. A lot of creative potential was lost in the later seasons (a big example of: the everfree). I think a lot of people do actually do that, we just have less writing overall these days.
>>13048 I just got on the ride in Jan. of this year and I want to contribute in writing stories. Maybe I can figure out how to write stories along these lines. What did you mean by potential lost in the Everfree Forest? Seems like an interesting idea.
>>13067 Not that anon, but what he means is probably that in later seasons mysteries and danger of Everfree were drastically diminished. In the first two seasons Everfree Forest was that ominous, eldritch place where magic run wild, nature governed itself without any help from ponies and all kinds of actually dangerous monsters lived. All of this without any explanation of it's origins. It was fun to explore all the possibilities and lore implications that later were flushed down the drain in later seasons by making the forest into basically just a spooky theme park.
>>13067 Basically >>13068. In the early seasons there was a lot of mystery about the Everfree. Anything could be lurking in there and it was always a danger to enter it for any reason. All the more surprising for Zecora living there. In the later seasons this all was basically dropped and it was treated just as another forest. Another thing that I felt was lost in later seasons: something that seems to affect a lot of movies and tv shows, the plot always became about "save the world/all of Equestria". There was less of a focus on things just affecting Ponyville, as though that weren't a big enough problem. Of course there were episodes early on that was about "the whole world" but even then the scope of things didn't feel as large as they would become. I don't know, just another thing that I sort of felt.

>>13068 >>13071 Sounds like a really cool era of speculation in the Fandom. I kinda like the idea of Everfree still being a magically wild and mysterious place full of monsters, danger, and lore. Makes me want to go back and rewatch the show to find more instances like that wher, if you ignore follow-on episodes, there's potential for exploration.

When Equestria first was found, naught but dissension was abound, discord alone was to reign. there were many martyrs, but none could free the land, till arrive our queen, our saviour crowned. Rule Celestia! Celestia Rule The Day! Equestria Never, Never, Never Shall Be Slaved! X2 2. Still more majestic shalt arise, born from the starry night skies, a midnight mare; the commander of the moon. thus she arrives, our princess of the night, and may she reign forever more. Ruleth Luna! Yes, Luna Rule The Night! Equestria Never, Never, Never Shall Have Fright! X2 3. Thee haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame; the mighty friendship that dwells in our hearts, no dreadful evil shall ever have our command. we shall arise, arise victorious, even without a foe slain.

>>13225 moonhorse is precious
>>13225 How many huzzahs would that get? Does doubling the fun equal double the huzzahs? Or is it exponential?
>>13230 Dunno, but I would've loved to multiply her fun to test that
(2.93 MB 1776x1000 1653761948213.webm)
>>13230 >>13236 If the rate of increase of huzzahs is directly proportional to the number of times fun is doubled and if that fun yields a certain number of huzzahs per unit fun, then the number of huzzahs would definitely increase exponentially. Like this: Let H(t) = # of huzzahs Let F(t) = # of fun doublings Let k = proportionality constant (call it the "huzzah rate constant") Then... dH(t)/dt = kF(t), But... H(t) = nF(t), where n is a constant (let's call it the "huzzah yield"). Hence dH(t)/dt = (k/n)H(t) we get (after some calculus)... H(t) = A(e^(kt/n)), where A is the initial amount of fun. Collecting k/n together, so that p = k/n (we can call p the "fun time constant"), we get... H(t) = A(e^pt), hence huzzahs grow exponentially as fun doubles.

What do you think Celestia's first sun rising was like? Do you think she got it on the first try or did it take her a while to get used to it and the daily cycle?
>>13524 That's a good question. Did she gain the power? Or inherit it? Something must've happened in the year 0 where she first raised the sun. Either way I don't think she would've nailed it in the first try, just like how Twilight did in one of the episodes.
>>13525 >just like how Twilight did in one of the episodes shit fanfic
>>13525 >year 0 There's also the possibility that Equestria is timeless, and the royal sisters are eternal beings that have no beginning or end. In that case there could have been no first sun raising.
>>13527 Didn't the unicorns raise the sun prior to princess Celestia?
