Our Dear Celestia
This comic takes place right after the Royal Wedding. I remember how floored we all were when our Alicorn-Sun-God went down. Then I started thinking about how SHE would
have felt about it. As usual, that led to lots of exposition.
I suppose this comic works as a bit of a companion piece to my Goodnight Luna comic, [link] but really it's made to stand on its own.
Now maybe I can go back to playing Guild Wars 2.
Edit: I've added the original script and thumbnails to my Scraps folder, [link] since it seemed like the kind of thing people might be interested in and it literally took me two minutes, so why not?

I feel like Twilight's point of "We failed before too" is really moot.
Especially later in the show. The Mane 6 failed a couple of times(and needing someone to truly save the day) but its outnumbered by how they kept saving the day.
Meanwhile Luna and Celestia fail and fail and FAIL whenever some bad guy attacks. Be it get taken out or can't do anything(or worse, choose to not help to "train Twilight").
Twilight mentioning that everyone has a role that helps save the day doesn't really fix the problem for the sisters. Luna and Celestia originally the one who go and directly stop the bad guy, not being able to do that at all anymore and have to rely on others to ultimately do that is really bad.
It makes Luna and Celestia look like ultimately failures.
Seeing Celestia actually devestated about her loss to Chrysalis makes me wished they did that in show.
Its bad enough the writers kept having Luna and Celestia get taken out(needing to be rescued and/or forced to rely on others save everyone) or unable to directly do anything but the fact they are brushing it aside makes it worse. These failures really should affect Luna's' and Celestia's confidence, not them brushing it off like its trivial.
I feel like Luna would take it worse due to how she failed Equestria greatly due to Nightmare Moon but is unable to truly make up for it due to she is either sidelined or just taken out again and again after she got back from the moon.
Sorry about the rant but.. how Luna and Celestia are handled in the show really ticked me off.
