Children of the Night by NekoMellow Children of the Night by NekoMellow
This was inspired by the video Children of the Night, To see the Video click here.

I was browsing YouTube when I came across a Brony Top 10 Videos for June 2012, and Children Of the Night was listed, I absolutely loved the Video and it inspired me to draw this picture c:

I guess you could say this is fan art for *spiritto and ~Lionheartcartoon for making such a beautiful animation!

Keep up the wonderful work guys, And I can't wait to see the finished product! :meow:

Anyways~ Hope you guys like my Children of the Night, Luna picture.

You did a wonderful job on this art piece, you have shown the Princess of the Night beautifully. :)

I loved the video myself but I hope that doesn't mean you agree with the premise of the 'story'. The premise being that things got bad for Equestria after Discord, when clearly from the show it did not, and suggesting that Celestia is at fault and not Luna. That Celestia wrongly denied her sister the wish to move some ponies to another land. Also consider where this song is used, in the show Hocus Pocus (a favorite movie of mine) and in it children were being controlled by the song of another. Taken from their homes and their families. I'm sorry but because I have seen that movie I see Luna's actions as dark and a misuse of her powers... even if Luna does not intend it to be such. The song is beautiful and the video with be wonderful when finished but if Luna were to actually do this it would be wrong, as there is no reason for her to take ponies from Equestria.

---------------------------------
I love how FiM has shown Princess Luna, she is a wonderful character and my favorite of the princesses. Yet I also respect Celestia and understand how in many ways both princesses are victims... to be honest I blame Discord for Luna's fall, forcing Celestia to do what she did. Discord is manipulative, wishing to bring conflict between those that are harmony. As he broken apart Twilight and her friends I see it as reasonable he would have tried the same with Celestia and Luna.

The Elements of Harmony work because the wielders have a strong bond of friendship, and by the sisters defeating Discord it is clear he did not destroy their friendship. Yet who is to say he still didn't plant seeds of doubt and uncertainty in Luna's heart? The seeds growing into a form of depression that Luna hid from her sister, coming to believe Celestia did not care about her and that her older sister thought she was better then her.

With the darkness growing in Luna's heart it would lead her to trying to find a way of becoming strong, that some dark spell or magic turning her unto Nightmare Moon and causing her to lose herself. In this state Nightmare Moon (as Luna was lost) did not care about her subjects, did not care that her actions would bring harm to Equestria. All she cared about was forcing her 'subjects' to enjoy her nights, for the sun to never rise again. Yet what happens when you do not have the sun? Coldness, and darkness begins to creep in... life begins to wither and die.

Celestia could not let this happen, and though she tried reasoning with the one that had once been her sister it was in vain as her sister had disappeared in a shell of darkness consumed by Nightmare Moon. To be honest I am amazed that Celestia was even able to get the Elements of Harmony to work as he friendship with her sister was broken. That and who is to say she knew exactly what would happen. As she knew is she had to stop Nightmare Moon before her subjects came to harm... even if it meant losing her sister.
