Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k: The Shadow of Grief 35

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.

No, I think they've merged into one single being

stress and anxiety mixed with hatred and darkness, yea that does often happen.

More like hatred and darkness facing clarity. The two don't necessarily need to be bad things, if given focus, meaning, purpose.

Stress and anxiety, however, are just stables of this story's universe at this point.

just like a full circle, except with more strength.

Becoming truly balanced. That is the true philosophy of Yin and Yang

as well as the rise of a new dawn.

I actually hope the artist hold this concept consistent. Too many times I've seen writers do Yin and Yang, only to inject the Christian morality. Now I don't have anything against Christianity, but Yin and Yang is NOT a doctrine of Black and White Morality. It's a doctrine of the Grey.

Recovery/friendship building montage? I'm gonna need more popcorn!
I think if that one song were removed from existence, the internet would implode from the suction of the void left behind.
