nighttime is my time by egophiliac nighttime is my time by egophiliac
HUZZAH, LUNA! I am so happy, she was amazing and the episode was amazing and I don't even care that her mane is now really hard to color. Luna Luna Luna!

So apparently some people were under the impression that I had a lot of expectations and/or was really worried that Luna would be 'ruined', which is...kind of weird to me because I've always said that I was bound to love her unless she turned out to be, like, Blueblood. :iconlunashrugplz: But whatever! I'm really impressed that they took her in a direction that pretty much nobody expected, and now there is nothing better than Luna being a big giant scenery-chewing ham. I really hope she puts in another appearance, it would be terrible to give us a Luna-centric episode where she is amazing and then just never show her again.

Please do not whine about Luna not adhering to your super-special fanon. If you don't like her, that's cool, but I'm not interested in hearing all about how she's terrible because she's not exactly what you wanted. There's plenty of other places where you can go rant about that.

I mean, they said there would be "enough Luna to make the fans happy" so that by default means more than one appearance, right? RIGHT?

I also really wish they would bring Pipsqueak back. He was so cute, and you can't just introduce a character for one episode that everyone likes and then never use them again! ...Oh wait, they do that all the time.

WE LOVE THE NE-- I mean, I love the new design for Luna! She's so cute! I was a pleasantly suprized by ham-Luna. I guess she has her sister's sense of humor. Huzzah for lovable, approachable princesses! I agree with you that Luna should be around a lot more. It would be a waste if she dissapeared once again.

Very cute, and well-drawn! I like how you toned down the sparkles in her mane and tail a bit - gives her a more subtle spacy look than SUPER BIG SPARKLES that are in a lot of drawings of her.

I enjoyed Luna and in fact I don't think she's terribly different from what fandom has shown her to be. There's been quite a few things about what is like for Luna to come back after a thousand years and that was present in the episode and yeah. Though the whole middle age accent was actauly a bit of a surprise to me since I was like, 'I never would of thought about that', then again season 1 did really have her talk to much so yeah.

Anyway's rambling over. This is really cute and I like the fact that she is now (I think) as big as her sister.

Regardless, awesome work!

I like Luna. I could tell as I was watching that she still has those insecurities that many fans were expecting, but their influence on her personality is just different from what folks were expecting. It was an interesting way to turn things, all the more so because it's completely justifiable, and yet almost no one was expecting it.

FORGIVE THE ALL-CAPS, BUT IT IS TRADITION WHEN DISCUSSING LONG-LOST MEMBERS OF EQUESTRIAN ROYALTY TO SPEAK OF THEM IN THE TRADITIONAL CANTERLOT VOICE. AS ALWAYS, THINE FLOWING LINES DO JUSTICE TO THE GRACE OF THE CHARACTER PORTRAYED, AND THOU SHOULD BE COMMENDED MOST HIGHLY FOR THINE HANDLING OF OUR FAIR PRINCESS' MANE AND TAIL, AND THE ATTENDANT GLOW SURROUNDING THEM.

:+fav:'D MOST VIGOROUSLY. TECHINCALLY AGAIN. BUT WHATEVER.

on a sub-note, delivered softly as it only tangentially relates to the subject at hand, I think one of the things I appreciate about canon!Luna more and more each time I watch the episode is that all the traits fanon associates with her (or at the very least, my personal head-canon up to this point)-childish, insecure, socially awkward, affected by her time as Nightmare Moon-are all very much present, they've just been portrayed in a way very different from what some many have come to expect, but that only makes them that much more interesting, to me. :)

As long as she is socially awkward in some way I'm satisfied. If she had been all savy like Celestia then she would have been ruined but that episode was just great!

I like canon Luna.

Fanfiction and other fanworks will always produce alternate interpretations on characters according to the creator's preferences, which I have no problems with...usually. Just as long as it's done well and not simply for shock-value.
