Story: Never Too Old to Fall

[Shipping] Oh hey, someone finally shipped Celestia with her guards. What would we do without Pacce?

Author: Pacce

Description: With Luna’s return, Celestia finds herself with more free time than she’s had in a thousand years, perhaps even time enough to pursue a little romance. At the same time, Luna has to come to terms with a world that has become very different from the one she’s used to, especially if she’s going to help her sister.

Never Too Old To Fall

Additional Tags: Romantic comedy with pony royalty.

    Not sure how i feel about this one..Luna is completely out of the 30 seconds of character that we actually have of her… Though i do like that the unusual humour thing was used.Celestia seems to be decently in character.

    I'm sorry but I'm going to comment before reading:How can Royalty fall for one of her guards. I don't know about you be I can see a reference to the British Queen's Guards (See A Bird in the Hoof episode) and I can not understand how you can fall for a pony, that look almost the same as any other guard, whose job is to be a statue on stand by.

    Or Luna'll fall for Kick Off, and Kick Off'll be interested in somepony else completely.But even if it is predictable, it's well written and illicits a few Dawwwww moments. Tis worth continuing.

    @AnonymousI shall work as fast as I can, but I also want this to be of the best quality I can bring, so that means rereading and editors.Also yeah, the Houyhnhnms are a Gulliver's Island reference and I owe that to a chap who helped me edit by the name of Binky. He helped a lot actually, gave the idea to close out the chapter with a romantic image.

    I think it's quite cute, but there's something about the way that Luna seems to swing from one personality to the other that sets me kind of on edge. And Celestia seems a little too eager to disrespect the 'ideals' of Royalty. That said, I'll certainly keep an eye on this, and keep reading. Good job.

    I feel I have to point out that in the show's opening sequence the guard ponies at Celestia's throne are Gray with white manes and tails, Not all guard ponies are white with blue. just thought I should put that out there.

  81. Wow. I hadn't even realized she wasn't really being shipped at all. I've found myself now a fan of Doctor Whoof/Celestia, but this works just as well. I love this new take on an actual "old fashioned" Luna with a less trollestia, more playful Celestia. Congratulations, you've just made your version of Celestia rank up there on my list of lovable ponies.

  89. Houyhnhnms? Really? So many points for that reference alone.This is a very cute setup. The dialogue between the sisters is great. I love the very subtle differences in Luna's speech patterns, being a thousand years out of date and all. I think I'm interested to see where this goes, the comedic potential is through the roof!
