Part 1 of my first comic, Greatness and Power.

I've been told that it's hard to tell who the pony in the first panel is, and I want to specify that it's Twilight, not Trixie. This will become somewhat more important later in the story.

Ooo... liking the atmosphere. Very melancholy and ethereal. Interested to see what's next

(Panel 1, filly Trixie with Celestia? Did she get rejected from her school for gifted unicorns? XD)

She either got rejected or just didn't get a chance

The pony on stage with Celestial is Twilight.

Ok Now I'll actually make a comment worth reading. Aside from my sparatic whims.

This has to be, one of the most complexity AMAZINGLY compelling, storyline art for Trixie to date. We've always seen Trixie as a stuck up Mare with a load of hardships set heavy on her back while dealing with the world she see's fit always keeping her will up high, and denying anypony that tells her she's just not good enough.

We know Celestia is the type of character that shows much respect for her subjects as well as protect them from themselves and the world they live in. She defines the world based by order and rule. Aside of this, It fits perfectly how trixie as a young Filly would go right up to Princess Celestia while she's performing some sort of speech in front of countless ponies, and ask her to either

"witness the greatness that is TRIXIE!"
"Teach Trixie Magic so that one day she will rule Equestria"
"Trixie is more magical then you are"

It's a already given that trixie is a orphan, her mentality drives this method perfectly since she seems to hardly coupe with life on a normal base's. So there is much sadness in her life that gives her the appeal to "fight back" and have that alure of wanting to be the best.

Princess Celestia being the kind of pony(horse) she is shooes her aside kindly, of more of less giggles at her seeing how sprataic and excited her subject is. I doubt Celestia would ever think of her subjects as a threat, more so maybe a potential Filly that wants to be just like her. Whatever the fandom leads, This is Celestia's true nature. By Heart

Trixie's stuborn responce forces her to leave, more or less not liking the response fromt he Princess and so goes off sobing, Finding her signature hat and from there you have done something that I honestly couldn't come up with.

Thankyou for making this peace of artwork.

I'm glad you like it and it's awesome to see people analyzing it! It really means a lot, and it makes me really happy that people are caring about it as much as me.

I'm excited to see how the next two pages are received, as I felt this page was pretty light on the story when I was making them.
