Heh. Nice. This reminds me of my personal screed regarding Celestia, that she represents both a classical and modern interpretation of a divine being. She is not invulnerable, and can be trapped, tricked, and defeated. In this way she is similar to the gods and goddesses of the ancient pantheons, like in Norse and Greek mythology, who were often caught up in some kind of trouble or other. But she also encourages her subjects to better themselves in subtle ways, inspiring enlightenment in an indirect fashion. She and Luna act not so much as authoritarian rulers, but more as guides helping the common ponies to overcome personal issues or find opportunities. Their selflessness resembles our modern notion of God as an ineffable, benign presence in our lives.
