Nightmare Rarity is sort of pretty - I imagine that stallions would find her quite attractive. And she really does say that in the comic. It's quite surprising some of the writing they can get away with!
This image is based off one of my favourite scenes in the comic, namely the panel in which Nightmare Rarity says the above phrase. It is not traced; it is my own freehand rendition of the scene. (Furthermore, in that panel, Nightmare Rarity is wearing armour and here she isn't.)

Glad I'm not the only one who likes the comics.

And this is especially good considering it was freehand.

Interesting how both of the Nightmares are ponies voiced b Tabitha St. Germain. Weird, huh?

Amazing!

I've never read the comic...what happened to her?

Spoiler warning:

The Nightmare force is removed from Rarity when the remainder of the main six + Luna + Spike work together. (It's a bit more complicated than that, but close enough of a description.)

Oh cool

But how did she turn into a nightmare?

I've gotta look online or something for the comics...I'm not really into comics but am curious

Another spoiler warning.

The Nightmare force resided on the moon the whole time after it was removed from Luna. If we assume the comics tie into the series, then at some point between episode 1x02 and 2x04, the force awakened. It invaded the dreams of the main six, trying to seek out which seemed weakest. In the end, it chose Rarity and kidnapped her to the moon, where the transformation was completed.
