Have you ever wondered... by Segraece Have you ever wondered... by Segraece
I always wanted to make my world. I didn't mean to hurt somebody, make them feel bad.
I just wanted to show them the beauty. The calm.
This endless quiet. I was sure that I can make a perfect place, full of love, beauty and joy.
But my intentions were pure. But somebody understood them in the wrong way.
Now, my world is collapsing- the stars are fading, the neverending night is becoming to the day. My poor childen, they don't know the light. Single ray can make them scared, or even blind. I want to hide them in my shadow, but my body isn't big enough. 
Them, over my head, they think that they're heroes, the chosen ones. But the one who's sufferring the most, is me. I want to tell them that I dind't meant to. 
But, unfortunately, we're on completely other sides- the day and night. 
Please, don't.

Your piece really shows the twisted fate of Equestria with Princess Celestia and the mane 6 as the antagonist and Nightmare moon as the protagonist. I really love how Nightmare Moon's mane is kind of like the sky of the bottom half of the piece. I really looks like the evil mane 6 and Celestia is trying to break down from where bad guys are banished to, which is the sun in this case, into the night with the villages, which I assume is Equestria, which is on the good hooves of Nightmare Moon. The chain clearly represents the barrier between them. Nightmare's guards are also the shadowbolts, which are the evil counter parts of the Wonerbolts. So I personally think you should've added the wonderbolts at the top with the evil Celestia.
All the expressions are clearly shown, and it takes not long to figure out who's evil and who's not, with Twilight and Celestia's devilish smile and Nightmare Moon solemnly dipping her head. The Shading of this piece is truly excellent, the light on Nightmare's wings, neclace, helmet and shoes from the glowing city brings out the 3D look of it. Also with the shadowbolt under one of Nightmare's wings, it looks like she's protecting him/her from the antagonists trying to ruin the peace of Equestria.
The shading on of the mane 6 is very impressive, but I feel that Pinkie, Apple Jack and Rainbow Dash is too far back in the picture, and it's quite hard to see them. I think you should try to make the staff that Celestia and Fluttershy is holding a little more clearer because I'm slightly confused by it, but over all, this is an amazing piece of artwork demonstrating the what ifs of Nightmare Moon being good and Celestia being evil.

Seeing your entry's thumbnail on the T.O.F. 's finalists page - I was surprised (a MLP fan cheering for the fandom's obseesion!) and a bit puzzled (I need to see this larger to get the idea). I was like
"Mane Six (whoa, where's AJ? [she's what appears to be a third scepter over Pinkie Pie's back]) over the Nightmare Miasma (darkness)?"

This could be viewed differently based on perspective ("is the glass half full/half empty" idea). The chains are the fence between good and evil. Based on their facial expressions, it looks like Celestia and Twilight are merely advancing their knowledge of magic. I think that you could have made Twilight and Celestia's appearance to be more dark (the dark magic aura from Crystal Empire 1&2 as well as some black metallic jewelry and green irises for Celestia).

Otherwise, a POWERFUL piece of art! A great mix of light and shadow in Luna's half! Anytime I see the concept of 'mane melding into the sky', it's mesmerizing!

As an aside, I wonder how Spike and any other characters would fit in this flipped realm! It would be something if there was a character who could bridge the two 'worlds'....

Aw, sweet Luna, I like you and the night.
The pony world surely needs more night owls.

To be honest, I came to this place due to some journal telling about some badge.
So I browsed through the Twist Fate deviations and stopped at the first one I would be able to get the reference.
Happens to be mlp art.

And it is a nice one.

The description even has a neat little story to tell.
It gives a "the winner writes the history" vibe.

Welp, in season 7 the little problems between those two mighty ponies got resolved in a more civilised way; hopefully none of them will forget that lesson.
