One of the things I pondered when i got to these pages is, with the majority of Celestia's magic gone, should I make them look young or old? I decided on young because:

1, they're easier to draw;
2, they're cuter;
3, it lends well to Celestia and Luna's predicament.

As a kid, you may sometimes to grownups during hard times like they know all, like they'll be able to fix everything. But sometimes, they're just as lost, scared and vulnerable as you are.

Imagine a very young Celestia, working with her sister to overthrow a Discord who wrested control of the sun and moon from the unicorns, only to learn the space around her world, which ought to be full of stars, is not. Imagine a Luna, too young to understand, and a Celestia, too young to cope. Imagine Celestia, carrying on with her sister what the old unicorns did until today, all the while choosing to keep entropy a secret, believing that knowledge too dreadful for anyone to bear, because she, even a thousand years older or more, still feels herself to be that filly who was too young to cope.

Oh look! Here comes Princess Cadance to throw down! But, since I'm going to spend this weekend attending my cousin's wedding, I'm gonna have skip the 13th's would-be upload. In the mean time, enjoy the mental image of Cadance smashing Gralo with Persona.

You are welcome. :)

Is Gralo base on a hawk, owl, eagle or seomthing? He does look familiar (I forgot about the birds I've known about : P)

so, wait. Are Celestia and Luna now permanently going to look like that? I mean the magic of ignorance is gone forever and that won't ever return. Gralo said that he had taken away the magic of ignorance when he turned them back to fillies.

I now effectively HATE this Fu##er...

its one thing for all except that magic to keep that one world intact... its another to take it and call it "The truth"


but that explains a lot about why the sun moon and stars are controlled... and why spinning and gravity and axis to make seasons are unknown...

You know, now that I look at Cadance in this last panel, she reminds me awfully of Aang from Avatar: the Last Airbender in his Avatar state.

so in truth, since one needs the sun and moon to grow food, everyone in Equestria has been eating nothing but dust and soil?

Nah, even though the sun and moon were magical constructs rather than a real mass of thermonuclear reactive hydrogen and ball of rock respectively, they were still having real life sustaining effects.

I peg Gralo biting the dust and the world being saved between pages 120 and 140 right now, but that's not counting the denouement.

...so, in the next page, page 119, or somewhere in between?

No.

I expect Gralo will be beaten and the world will be saved between pages 120 and 140, but the comic will not end there. The denouement (the part of a story after its climax which resolves everything) may extend the comic's length to as many as 160 pages.

I hope that was more clear. :)

I love the filly designs of Celestia and Luna. You can still tell that it's them, but they look so powerless. In their normal states they are very regal, almost intimidating, but this really pushes through that, beneath the power and beyond the age, they are ultimately not much different from anyone else.

Given the fact that Cadance is the princess of love, torturing someone she cares for right in front of her is probably not a good idea. Then again, she uses magic to spread her love, so Gralo could absorb it.

So either she beats him up manually (unlikely) or her raw love-magic gives him digestive problems... he already swallowed all the elemts of Harmony had to give, though, so that's unlikely.

I think the last frame should have had full wing and the previous frame have them with the slight fold because well white eyed with full wings she'd look even more intimidating like look at me I have wings and white eyes with my magic flowing and imma gonna kick your arse
