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. :)

the other poines are like "WTF IS THAT?!" lol
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
I totally caught that guard with the red eyes as odd, and definitely was right- another avatar of ... Nahmat... I gotta practice that...

confidence? .... more like complacency... doing nothing... REALLY? 

no wonder i usually like Luna more... but i do respect the approach, even if it isnt always the wisest idea...
What?  Luna slept through the whole Discord incident and the Changeling invasion?  Dang I wish I could sleep like that.

ha, yeah, me too.
And I need it because my job requires that I get up at 1:00 in the morning Monday-Friday and at 12:00 in the morning Saturday and Sunday.

OOOOOOOOH, so she is able to create a copy of herself and place it in another part of the world, but by having to focus her REAL mind in order to control it.

that's how she managed to go to six different places in such a short amount of time.

Nahmat's pretty devious! :XD:


Maybe she should've maintained that Guard Pony illusion. By the looks on the faces of those ponies, a stampede is imminent; but what else is new!? =P

sibling trolling is best kind of trolling
