Re: I finally fixed the panel with Luna's eye, for some reason uploading made it all funky and I'd been meaning to fix it for a while..
Ok, Celestia and Luna are amazing. Sorry for my lazy coloring, if anyone wishes to recolor better let me know, I'm a newbie haha. but anyhow...
Celestia and Luna... I wish the show would dive into their relationship more often.
I know everyone keeps going on about why Luna wasn't there when Chrysalis attacked and why nobody went to get her. well here is my interpretation of that. Celestia lost her sister for a thousand years, and for a thousand years she had to carry on as ruler of Equestria all alone and do everything by herself. She had to be perfect for her subjects, to them, she IS Equestria. Celestia the undefeated, the pure, the incorruptible. The unshakable. Even when banishing her own sister. She wouldn't be used to calling for help, it's HER job to save and protect everyone.
Also I believe now that her sister is back, the one pony she failed to protect, it would only make sense for her to be terrified of losing her again. So to protect her sister, she didn't let her get involved. She faced everything alone. If you rewatch the episode, even when Twilight came to help her after the changelings were sent away, she said she was fine and directed the attention away from herself. Celestia is amazing. All she does is GIVE GIVE GIVE to Equestria!! at the cost of her own health and safety. Even lying defeated on the ground, she commanded Twilight and her friends to leave her and save the other ponies. She is completely selfless!
So maybe after Luna finds out, she becomes hurt because she thinks Celestia won't rely on her, that she doesn't trust her because of what she did by becoming nightmare. Luna would probably feel very guilty and hurt that Celestia wouldn't come to her. Even earlier in the episode, she had to make Celestia leave the guard post so she could take over. She had to persuade her sister to let her help.
But Celestia can't be strong by herself forever. I would love to imagine that the only one who ever sees vulnerable broken worn Celestia is her sister, Luna. So for once, Celestia is the one who gets protection and care. And Luna gets to stand up and move on from her past. Luna will never lose her sister again. Now the burden is shared between them, maybe not by Celestia's own choice, but by Luna's.
This is just my fluffy feely version. I love their relationship, and there is so much room for it to be expanded upon.
Such amazing sisterly love. <3
Let me know what you think!
