I appreciate a good silent comic. One where words don't need to be exchanged to get the point across. Here you proved that you really can have a good comic without any dialogue.
Instead you use a great amount of well placed frames of Nightmare Moon looking at her long distance planet she use to call home and as if she actually regrets her actions and longs to be with her sister. It really is an emotional feeling to ones that understand the deeper context of the comic.
The art style of this is also very appealing to look at. It keeps the original style of the show but you added your own unique twist to it making it all the more unique.
*faepalm* i really dislike how everyone seems to think that nmm/luna was just waltzing around on the surface of the moon for a 1000 years when the show itself said she was sealed inside the moon... *sigh*
Oh, goodness... that hit me like a brick wall. I can't begin to fathom just how Luna must've felt there.
(Celestia, too, in the previous comic, but at least she was still home, with other ponies around, with laughter and talk and just about everything that makes life worth living; Luna had literally nothing.)
My idea for the first one was that Celestia had to live with everything that happened, but she couldn't just get alone and deal with it on her own. She had a kingdom to rule. She had duties to fill. She had to put on the face that she was okay.
I'm not downplaying what Luna had happen, but just saying that Celestia had to go through what I consider to be harder.
1000 years surrounded by other ponies, 1000 years separated from your sister, 1000 years to think about every little moment that you had a chance to fix things before it was too late, 1000 years to act like nothing was wrong.
I know I'm not really the one to be critiquing the art (heck, my avatar says enough), but I love it. The rough style just juts out at you and let's you know that it's there, and the darker atmosphere gets the message across. Not to mention best princess, but meh, who wants to talk about that?
