Celestia's Burden by VampireSelene13 Celestia's Burden by VampireSelene13
A picture I drew of Celestia after banishing Luna away. YES. There is no crown. No royalty wears their crown 24/7, and the lack of the crown makes her look more defeated in my opinion.

The amazing song is by ponyphonic and is one of my favorite original songs in the fandom <3

Incredible piece, the pain Celestia is feeling is so clearly communicated as well as the weight of what she's had to do and the fact she'll now have to bear the weight of the moon.

There is a quiet, elegant sorrow in this picture, one that quite reinforces what Celestia must surely have felt to have lost her sister in such a way as this. I quite applaud your decision to keep her crown out of this one--it really reinforces what Celestia feels, as if she doesn't care about her royal title so much as she does about her sister.

Luna: -speaking to Celestia even though she can't hear her from her place of exile- it will all be over when I return sister... do not fear anger from me there is no chance that I be mad at you.

But her dispair would draw the attention of her mother. When Celestia wakes up to raise the sun 978 years later, she discovered a small purple and green dragon egg, lying right beside her. After she rose the sun and kept balance to Equestria, she spent half the time in her room with the egg. She soon found a note, she read, "To Princess Celestia, I want you to take this egg and raise the hatchling as your own. This is something you must do. Anonymus."

5 years later, she was always protective when it comes between the school and her egg. Until she noticed the head of a dragon....the hatchling...Her Baby! The unicorn filly, Twilight Sparkle hatched an egg that hasn't hatched in five years since she got it. A healthy Purple Dragon hatched from the egg, thanks to Twilight. But with the filly bouncing around in joy, it suddenly reminded her of Princess Luna. Celestia flashed back to her deafeat after banishing Luna to the moon. In the next few years, Luna would return and see that Celestia has a dragon son named Spike. Its like that even though Celestia raised a dragon, and Luna returns and sees her dragon 'nephew' it basically makes them a family.

(Faust said that Celestia adopted and raised Spike after he hatched, and I always see Spike and he Alicorn sisters as....family.) BTW I cried at this pic.

I don't think they NEEDED to do it, I think the fans should have been able to interpret it that way. But instead we got a bunch of butt hurt luna fans who constantly blame celestia for everything. Makes me a little irritated.

I think it would be nice to have an ep with just the sisters though. In the present time.

it's incredibly bittersweet. this picture really shows the pain she went through. i can't really even imagine going through with my duties and also picking up the duties that belonged to your closest friend and sibling who you'd had to banish. i maintain that celestia is an amazing ruler, and that she completely deserves any praise or attention. give her ALL the cake she wants.
