Between The Sun And Moon Promo Poster by Killryde Between The Sun And Moon Promo Poster by Killryde
So a few months ago I had the idea to do my version of the history of Celestia and Luna, covering the events leading up to and when Luna became Nightmare Moon and her banishment.

Instead of doing a plain old fanfic, I planned on doing a fully illustrated storybook, spanning two volumes.

Now, from what was mentioned at the NYCC pony panel, and events from season 3, I feel that it would be rendered redundant, so I thought I'd at least finish this teaser poster I started last year.

I got as far as the text by the moon and was already teary-eyed; seeing Celestia's expression, though, I almost lost it completely. . . ya bastard. :p Seriously, though, this is beautifully done, and could easily be a promo poster for a canon movie about their background. Sadly, that'll probably never happen, but at least there're artists like you with the imagination and talent to produce work like this. As far as your book being redundant, I always like seeing alternate versions of the characters and/or events of the show (yay, multiverse). I hope you follow through with it. :D

What's your name on FIMfiction? I want to be able to read your story once you finish writing it.
By the way, that art is AMAZING!

Excellent work. I hope to see your work unfold. Ponyphonic's Lullaby for a Princess has been on my mind just recently. And further my interest of art, animation, songs, and stories of Celestia's and Luna's past.

Whoa whoa whoa... What was mentioned at the NYCC pony panel? What has been said in S3 about the events leading up to the first Nightmare incident?

Personally, I think you should still make the two-volume, illustrated storybook. If you put the same amount of quality into that which you did into this poster, then it would be awesome.

"All she wanted was to be loved?" Really? I've never believed for a second that Luna wasn't loved, she was only jealous of her sister and then let some evil force corrupt her and turn her into a villain who wanted to kill everypony. That's way more serious stuff than just wanting to be loved.

Oh my gosh....... This is going to bring tears to my eyes, is it not? It is going to be sad? Heartbreaking? Much like Past Sins, My Little Dashie, the last parts in Fallout Equestria? Oh no..... It is going to make me feel heartbroken for Luna, am I correct? Agh! *sobs*

this would be awesome to read, see, or watch ... redundant or not it's always nice seeing a wonderfully done and well thought out work presented by a dedicated fan ... i enjoy seeing people's different takes on characters and how they think someone (in this case somepony) might have developed
