Description: The War of the Night, an event so hushed up that only small legends left behind tell of the time it occurred.

  5. @ZAquanimusOh ZAqu,you make it sound like I'm forcing you to do anything.I had already read this before, and as before I could not peel away from it when I first read through it. Certainly is an interesting take on the whole mythos of the event. As always, the one constant with with Nightmare Moon stories is there's always the "Nice Job Breaking it Hero" factor that Luna ends up accomplishing. You'd think that poor filly would learn by now?Regardless, I'm sure that little glowing orb of little spying on Twilight is harmless, and completely forgetable. Nothing suspicious about it all.

    @Nightmare MoonOh, so that's who is looking over his left shoulder. I, your twin, am watching over his right. And I agree, completely harmless, nothing to be worried about at all. Pay no attention to it.

  13. I loved this story, dude!It was probably one of the best early Luna/Celestia stories that I've read.I'm really looking forward to the next part!

    Hmm, interesting. Considering that supposedly Luna is still not a full adult it would make sense that her transformation into Nightmare Moon was during the beginning of her and Celestia's reign. I like that this story doesn't seem to be going the Tyrant Celestia route.

    Really loving the originality and also remaining true to the prologue of the first episode about the events that transpired regarding Luna. Although I'm a bit torn about the whole "Luna creates Cutie Mark" thing..Regardless, really looking forward for the next installment.

    >King AltairYes son. :DI love the characterisation with Luna and Celestia. And it's a great take on the whole "Rise of Nightmare Moon" malarky.

    Thanks for all the great comments, everypony! I'm sorry I couldn't respond sooner, but the day this was posted, my internet died and refused to come back up.In other news, Part 2 is well on its way, and I have no idea how I am going to beat Part 1, that one's my pride. XD

    (Ch.1)So far, I must say that… It's quite interesting, and pretty informative in a well done way.I was really interested by it.No visible holes so far.I don't think I can point any particuliar thing on which I could ''scratch my head and wonder'' (trust me when I say this is a pretty rare occurance… some might agree on that one… I read and think a lot, lots of free-time, what can I say).Even the ''life expectancy'' of the alicorns seem ''fair'', especially the way it is presented in this story.Their 'time' being more like the duration of their stay on the ''mortal'' plane of existance, before continuing their 'immortal' lives on another plane.And, an average to maybe a bit more than, 4-5 thousand years is a relatively decent amount of time, for a 'stay'.-Let's hope this continue on this track. (I must say that I wonder in which ''fashion'' the war aspect will be treated… I can't help, but eye the Tags…)

    @Nova25Thank you for the comment! And you'll see the full out war in Part 3. War breaks out in Part 2. Part 3 may be made into 3 AND 4, depending on how long it gets.And as for plotholes, I can't stand them, so I always try to make sure everything is tied up, whether it is in the same chapter or not.

    Wow, really enjoying this so far. Love the way your portraying the 2 sister's, epically the inside thought from Luna. Poor little Luna :(5 star's from me.P.S. Loved the small game tickling the sister's played at the start of part one and the reference to it in the 2nd part. Keep up the good work.

  29. ZAquanimus says:

    Oh to have seen part 2 whilst it was being made,the 18 hours i saw put into it by the author and her editor.This story has dedication, and it shows.I saw as part 2 went from a chapter almost as good as the first, to a chapter that was as great as the first, perhaps even surpassing it.And, I'm hearing great things regarding the third :3

    I'm surprised that I didn't comment on this when I read it the first time. It's been a while (really only two days, I think, but still), so I don't remember the details, but I do know that this was an incredible story and that you should know it.I loved the battle scenes and the story you've built up explaining the history behind Luna and Celestia. Seriously, it brought tears out all over the place, especially when Celestia had to leave Luna behind.Also, for some reason I totally didn't foresee Celestia using the Elements of Harmony. Not sure what to think about that (could have been silliness on my part or good writing on yours).I especially like fanfictions like this because of the way they deal with the pony theme. The pony theme is fantastic (to me, at least) because it largely removes human concerns and philosophies, and thus inhibits my own cynicism (lol). Fanfictions like this keep that innocent theme but return some timeless principles such love and loss (truly meaningful things) that are too often clouded by the difficulties of the human condition.Basically: I wish I could tell stories like you do. I love what you've done with this. Fantastic. Infinite stars.

    @TsiristThanks for the Feedback! My next two stories, What Could Have Been and Deep Dark are currently in the works, so keep watch for them! ❤

  34. Dear Celestia this was incredible. After finishing Past Sins I didn't think I would ever read another good fan fic again, but boy did you prove me wrong in every way. The battle of Cloudsdale really got to me.

    @Jett MidknightThanks! Though I should point out this came out before Past Sins. XDSequel is on its way!
