"A long time ago there was a princess, a princess that cares for the night. It is said her magic is as cold as the emptiness of the moon, and that her mane and tail flows like a tapestry of stars. She carries with her her armor as to protect the children from their darkest nightmares and replace them with beautiful dreams. She weaves stars as to guide those who are lost on their way home, and protect them from the terrors of the night.
But jealousy began to grow on her, as more of her subjects bask on the warmth of her sister's Sun while at night they all hide away in fear and sleep through the stars she has woven for them. Jealousy weakened her sense of duty, and the nightmares that she was fighting against consume her.......and thus began the Princess of Nightmares...."
Years pass, seasons change, trees grow and all that stuff. Twilight has finished most of her studies, becoming one of the youngest ponies to ever received the title of Arch-Mage. And to top it all off she wrote an extremely popular book called "Friendship is Magic" a compilation of her lessons she reported to Princess Celestia, teaching the values of Harmony and Friendship.
And so another excuse for drawing Twilight, lol. The result of experimenting turned out...okay-ish...... I might draw time skip versions of the Mane 6 and other characters.... you might not know.
