Since we won't be seeing them for a while, I want to write a little bit about my thoughts on the Royal Pony Sisters, or rather, one of them.

Some time ago, there was a poll on Equestria Daily asking "Who is you favorite royal pony?" I voted Luna, and it was little surprise that Luna won by a landslide. Their next poll was "What's your favorite iteration of Luna?" A poll that I felt was made for the purpose of asking "why is Luna your favorite royal pony?"

Since they didn't have an option that really captured why Luna is my favorite royal, I thought I'd put it down here. My favorite Luna is canon Luna, not for the ROYAL CANTERLOCK VOICE, but for a very different reason. She changes, and works to solve problems.

Luna succumbed to despair, loneliness, jealousy and evil influential forces, changing her into Nightmare Moon. Nightmare Moon, though her efforts upon her return seemed to be to hinder the Mane 6's progress, actually came to bring out each pony's finest attributes, letting them discover the Elements of Harmony, changing Nightmare Moon back into Luna. On the next Nightmare Night, Luna came to Ponyville to clarify the misconceptions about her true nature, and worked to change herself to solve the problem.

Luna, to me, out of all the royal ponies, is my favorite because she acts the most alive.

Oh yeah, don't forget that this page shows, though implicitly, how Nahmat can be in many places at once. :)

Don't let Shiny catch you spying on the Princesses. It really won't make you seem any more trustworthy.

"actually came to bring out each pony's finest attributes"

Well, Tia personally teached Twilight and is her mentor. Isn't that enough ?

No, because Twilight couldn't wield all six elements by herself.

That's the whole point of Friendship is Magic. A person alone can't do much, but people can do great things by working together, and when their bonds are strong, the things they do are incredible.

As The Six journeyed through the Everfree Forest, every hardship Nightmare Moon put them through brought them closer and closer together, and once they embraced that bond, they could use the elements' true power.

Twilight's education by Princess Celestia wasn't enough for her to wield the elements. Twilight alone isn't enough.

The show is not about the Magic of Twilight Sparkle. It's about the Magic of Friendship, even if some of the more recent episodes suggest the former is the case instead.

"Twilight alone isn't enough."
Of course, of course. But if Twilight misses, the EoH can't achieve anything.
Whence the importance of Twilight Sparkle's training by Celestia.

"it was little surprise that Luna won by a landslide"

Well, I'm calling shenanigans. Mutliple accounts but one person, can do the trick.
Plus if only Lunar supporter voted, of course, she's win.

I also really like Luna.
However I think Luna's greatest flaw is that she is so submissive to Celestia. I mean Luna should be the equal of Celestia but right now she clearly isn't. Celestia makes all the major decisions and while Luna can sometimes voice doubts about it I never seen her go directly against a decision of Celestia. Luna really needs to grow some more backbone and try to come out from underneath Celestia's shadow.
Celestia joking about treating Luna as a filly seems to be a tradition.Submit Comment
