Commission: The Evil Paradox



Done for the story "The Evil Paradox" by Alcatraz

Story Description: "Over the years, I’ve had many names and titles. For now, you can call me Catherine. I haven’t been totally honest about who I’ve been these long years, but that’s a moot point at this stage.

I’m still reminded of what I did to Luna and Celestia every day, but living with it got easier. It’s like a dull ache that never goes away, but you slowly learn how to ignore it, even though you can feel it eating away at you. It’s been fifteen-hundred and sixty, or thirty Earth years since I first came to Equestria. When you’re immortal, the years tend to blur together.

I can’t help but think on what became of Luna since we swapped places. If she’s still alive, dead, married with kids, or begging for change on the street.

Yeah, I’ve got a lot of explaining to do, so if you’ll bear with me, I’ll start at the beginning."

Pretty fun, relatively quick piece of best ponies.

I immediately thought of this piece of New Vegas art. It has a similarly striking effect, and some vague role parallels.

Joshua Graham is a basically good man who worked with Caesar. The two were friends, spread an empire, and valued each others' counsel. But Graham was backstabbed by Caesar when he didn't provide something beyond his means to grant. He has a lot of suppressed rage only personal and spiritual discipline keeps from boiling out.

And Caesar isn't just the cruel brute he's made out to be, once you meet him. He's smart , complex and educated. He was once a very decent man, and does what he does because he honestly thinks it's what Humanity must learn to emulate because it has it's merits.
