Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: The Shadow of Grief 06 by GatesMcCloud Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: The Shadow of Grief 06 by GatesMcCloud
Princess Luna. Nightmare Moon. The princess has struggled with this duality for as long as she can remember. Knowing that the darkness within yearns to be free. But on one fateful day, a far greater darkness descends upon them, devouring everything in its path. A day that the Princess of the Night and the Nightmare must face together, or succumb to the waking nightmare that seeks to consume all of Equestria.

:iconkingsombraplz::iconsaysplz: Wait, I don't get it. I thought she was Luna.


:iconcelestiafacehoofplz::iconsaysplz: No no no, look, in Equestria she was named Luna. When she went crazy and evil she named herself Nightmare Moon.


:iconnmmperplexedplz::iconsaysplz: Wait, so I'm Luna?


:iconcelestiafacehoofplz::iconsaysplz: Argh! No, You're Nightmare Moon. :iconsadlunaplz:  And she's Luna.


:iconlunaconfusedplz::iconsaysplz: So does that make me Celestia?


:icontiatrolledplz::iconsaysplz: ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!




You get 2 feel good points if you know where that joke came from. Otherwise, shame on you.

Well, I'm happy I have 3 different Luna's in one page, *bleep bloop* 3 for Three *bleep bloop*

You get 2 more feel good points if you know where that one comes from. Otherwise, more shame.

Whelp if you where confused as to why there were 2 Luna's way back in Lulamoon with Scoot's dream, maybe this can help alittle. And I mean alittle.
 


UPDATE: My god, why didn't anyone tell me the name was wrong!?

I have a headcannon like this. where Lunas sudden change of appearance in season 1 was due to the fact that Nightmare moon wasn't actually defeated. She was expelled from the body, but then Luna reinacted the same feelings seeing as nothing changed... so Nightmare moon came back. But Luna stayed in control and the two came at an impass. So basically the change was due to their appearances merging together.

Figure out your tactic, Nighty. If you're going to loom over her and yell, own the threat. Go all-out and frighten her into losing control. And if you're going to ask her to release you willingly, try not to remind her of the various reasons she doesn't want to. If you go this middle route, you're just trying to sabotage yourself.

I'd recommend the second option. I can see that you do care what that poor filly thinks about you and whether you're part of the problem or the solution when she's hurting.

Its a no answer if you never make up your mind. I'm leaving it to you, the viewers, to decide Luna's morality for now. I never give direct answers, by the time I finally put a stamp on it you will have long known where she stands. I leave clues everywhere, you just have to find them.

Sounds like Ichigo and Hollow Ichigo. The question is, can the beast be tamed?

Jekyll's fatal failing was that he could never accept that Hyde was a part of himself. Hopefully Luna will not fall the same way.

The only way to conquer your shadow is to dance with it, the only way to dance with your shadow is to accept it as a part of yourself.

Ugh...
You, pony with the black coat and dragon eyes, are Nightmare Moon.
Pony with the non-flowy mane and shorter than the one with the flowy mane, are Luna.
Other Pony, You are older Luna. Deal with it.
Celestia, you're on break.
