I'm Sorry, Luna by RedApropos I'm Sorry, Luna by RedApropos
Remember this from forever ago? I never actually finished it.
 (WIP) I'm Sorry, Luna by RedApropos

Well, :iconxhazxmatx: finished it for me. This is his submission here xhazxmatx.deviantart.com/art/I… but he gave me permission to post it in my gallery after he did. :D

"I just hope that I did it justice" he says.

Is that a joke?
IT'S MARVELOUS! Beautiful!! I could never have done such a fantastic job!!

well, i have become so heartwrenched by this after looking for 4 seconds that i can feel myself fighting back tears, the impact rating on this is realisticy a 7/5 nothing has hie in the heart this bad since my little dashie which made me cry, the only problem i have with this is because i have seen a few nightmare moon stuck up on the moon images, but this comic has made me feel a range of emotions and pushed luna up as my favourite character by far above the rest. In short this is one of the best hert wrenching momnts i have ever seen well done you have successfully made me tear up. I LOVE IT!

This honestly one of my favorite Luna (Should I say Nightmare Moon?) to the moon. The vision in my opinion is superb out of all the Luna Moon comics I've seen only a handful show Luna crying (There's probably a lot more out there but I haven't seen them). It's fairly original in the since that she's crying but the to the moon bit has been done. You have demonstrated superb technique in the way you've drawn all your other pictures, keeping your style similar to the show yet slightly different. This piece was impactful for me just to see Nightmare Moon crying not Luna which is how you usually see this, also this piece just wrenches at your heartstrings (like dissimilar from Dimebag Darrell's squealing harmonic whammy's) at the thought that a character seen as evil, and often viewed in my social groups as separate from Luna, has immediate sincere remorse for her actions. Overall great work Red, keep it up.

Would it be a crime to say that this would be more emotional if she turned back into Luna and then started crying?

I'm aware that Lauren isn't really the canon source now, but the backstory was by her. In this comment, she uses the phrase "in the moon," not "on the moon." I don't really mean any insult to you at all! The picture is gorgeous and heartbreaking, and a really touching work! I love it, the art is flawless, and the idea is beautiful! I just want to clarify what happened to Luna.

Now there's something I haven't seen before. I love what you did with her facial expressions in the first two panels, as she quickly and in panic realizes what has happened. A job well done here, good sir.

very nice.

as luna wept in isolation upon the moon, Celestia suffered a fate worse. celestia would not be alone those thosuand years. yet those she loved, those she befriended, those she spent that millenium with to ease the pain of her sin all suffered the same curse, the same gift.
mortality.
and every inevitable gravestone, be it ally, friend, favorite backer, or student, she stood alone, mourned alone, without the comfort of another who knew the curse, and gift, of her enduring life to ease her pain.

Am I the only one who thinks that when Luna was banished to the moon she was sealed inside of it and had no real physical form? I mean that's why the image of the "mare" was visible on the moon right? Anyway, this is still a very nicely drawn piece.

While I do genuinely feel bad for Luna, she's far from being a blameless victim here. Think about it; no sun = no sunlight, no sunlight = no plant growth, no plant growth = everypony (and everything) starves to death. Luna/NMM was essentially going to kill the entire world because she was jealous that her sister was getting more praise. Disproportionate Retribution, anypony? That being said...OMG, LUNA NEEDS SO MANY HUGS!!!

:iconevankestral:
EvanKestral Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014
I agree with this completely, and it's something too many bronies forget or overlook. But it's what makes Luna such a sympathetic and tragic character: her motivations were entirely understandable, and although her actions were evil and needed to be stopped, we never wanted to see her hurt. Likewise, Celestia chose her duty to her people over her own beloved sister, condemning herself to (as far as she knew) an eternity alone.

Honestly, the tale of the Sisters is one of my favorite elements of FiM. Such a deep story expressed so simply.

There is a element most don't think about ever. I don't actually think Nightmare Moon was truly evil, don't get me wrong what she was going to do would have been terrible. But I don't think Luna or Nightmare Moon was fully evil.

Notice when she first appeared she defeated the guards without a second thought, and barely used her magic.

Then she set simple ways of dealing with the ponies, which were at best more of a test than anything else.

 

If anything I think she wanted to be beaten, or at least have some fun. Not fully sure though.
Though in a slight after thought, what would have happened if Twilight had tried to explain and help Nightmare Moon rather than use the elements on her.

That moment when realization really sinks in... ouch, that's got to have hit her like a sledge hammer. And not just realization hat happened and what situation she's in now, where she is and how long she's likely going to stay there, no -- but also, deep down, the undeniable feeling of nagging guilt, the knowledge that it was her own actions that led to this. And all just because she wanted to be loved and appreciated, the way her sister was.

No wonder she's crying her heart out. :(
