Yeah. Shining Armor and Nahmat are off to a great start, for sure. :D

One of the things I've heard people wonder about is why the princesses send Twilight and her friends on such dangerous missions that you'd think them unqualified for. I like to think that Luna just answered that question perfectly.

Sorry, while I admire the art, I just couldn't imagine Luna saying "Yeah, yeah." Had to change it in my mind to "yes, yes."

I'm not so sure that this is a good opportunity to construct a learning experience. And I hardly think that the Captain of the Royal Guard needs a lesson in taking on problems himself.

But, on the other hoof, it's not like guarding her is anything but a symbolic gesture anyway.

but wait... isnt this surely a matter that requires so-called leaders such as Luna and Celestia to take proactive action on...?

as in they are... disturbingly uninvolved... surely they could be both involved and have it be a learning experience at the same time...

this was my response when i read it for the first time... and how I was concerned for both what was going on and that it warranted more proactive action...

Me: "... Do you taste that? I think that's acute FAILURE in the air... What part of ordering a guard against a creature he cant hope to control a good idea...? Are you using him as sacrificial bait...?"

I'm one of those guys that will run when necessary... and very wary of creatures with superior abilities... going through walls? that never struck me as even a magical based power... much less anything from Equestria that could do that.....

"She caught me off guard..."

"Don't be stupid, she's stronger than you, and denying it is even dumber... she could have killed us all for all we know..."

The stain-glass is amazing and Nahmat is one of the most badass MLP characters ever. I already like him hugely, even if he and Shining are having a rough time of it to start. I assume  Nahmet is a character you made from scratch? He is a truely inspired character if I may say so. You should be SO super proud of this work. Wait a minute...Nahmat is an anagram of "Tamahn" . Very clever!NaNoEmo: Day 16 

Anyway, I'd better get reading the next exciting chapter of the comic. Keep up the great work.

Love the new stained glass window!

I agree with Celestia. Given she and Luna are immortal and so very powerful, they'd have to be careful their little ponies didn't get unhealthily dependent on them.

But that doesn't mean they can't keep an eye on the situation.

Please provide us with the two stained-glass windows you've created for this comic. The above comments seem to indicate that they would be well-received as stand-alone artworks. And speaking from a purley selfish pont of view, they would make wonderful additions to my file of Equestrian stained glass artworks.

What you see in the frame is the full extent of what I've drawn for each window, so unless you don't mind the picture of Shining Armor and Cadance driving away Chrysalis having the the upper third chopped off, you're probably not going to get much. :( After finishing it, I stupidly lost the vector lines for drawing most of the thing.

I could try to recreate it, but that would take quite some time, time which I'd prefer to allocate for drawing new pages. I could post a high-res close-up of it though, but like I said, only what is seen in the frame is what was drawn. :shrug:

P.S.: The "two" stained-glass windows I created? I don't understand. I only created one, the other two on the edge of the frame are recreations of ones already seen in the show (from left to right, [link] and [link])

So very, very, many questions.
First, pet peeve. If what Luna’s suggesting is true, that means Celestia could have stopped both Nightmare Moon and Discord, but did nothing because she wanted the “ponies” of Equestra to see they could defend themselves. HOWEVER, the fight with the changelings suggests otherwise.
–Did she purposely LOSE the fight to the Changeling-queen? Or are the “Elements of Harmony” and “The power of Love” the only things strong enough to defeat evil? Are the guardians of the sun and the moon starting to lose their powers?

Also, …how the heck do they expect to control a creature that can phase though walls?!? Wow. XD

That Window is so amazing! Was there any hint/preview image/whatever from the show, or did you come up with that yourself? It looks so damn perfect and matches the style so well I just had to ask.

I also think that having those stained glass windows in the back really emphasizes the point of sending other ponies into those dangerous situations - it gives them confidence, and they grow with their tasks, and the windows proove that they are up to the task.

:iconarofatamahn:
ArofaTamahn Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I designed the window from scratch, basing it on what I found the most eye-catching during the expulsion of Chrysalis from Canterlot, and the aesthetic style of all the windows seen in the show so far.

Glad you like it!

Excellent viewpoint on why Celestia does that. I'd often wondered that, but this is perfectly in line with Celestia's character in the show.
