The Real Story - P3, The Moon by Nimaru The Real Story - P3, The Moon by Nimaru
[Part 1] 1000 x 5400 pixels

[Part 2] 1000 x 8900 pixels

And now this, part3, coming in at 1000 x 14000 pixels! Good thing the story is almost over!

Some people seem to be stopping here and missing part four. Don't miss the conclusion!

EDIT: [Part 4]

BONUS: For HARDCORE mode, listen to this while you read the story: [link]

As huge as this is, as hard as it was, and as long as it took, there are several things I couldn't fit in. Some will be placed into a separate comic centered on the elements of harmony from 1000 years ago and the rest will take place in the epilogue of this comic (sorry everyone, but there's going to be a part 4).

Fortunately, the last few things I need to do for this comic won't take as long to finish and should wrap up things nicely.

By the way, I know this comic, being that it really starts getting creative with the events of the banishment might rub some people the wrong way. But I gave it my very best shot at making it plausible and fit with the official canon. As of now, everything here is a completely realisitic representation of what might have happened. I JUST BARELY beat the season 2 premiere with this and if it ends up contradicting my theories, well... I WAS FIRST so HA!

I also know there's some artwork out there for the parents, but I wanted to try my own ideas for the design (and mine are way easier to draw anyway :) )

Lastly, I wanted to say that the writing was harder here than in any other comic. There really is a lot shoved in, but I tried to only include the bare minimum that was necessary.

After all, it needed to be heard.

EDIT: I forgot, I'm calling her parents "Orbash" (her father) and "Tau Sunflare" (her mother). Can anyone guess why?

EDIT: by demand: The elements of harmony are (from left to right):
Winter Willow - Kindness, pegusus
Rose Petal - Generosity, Unicorn
Celestia - (all, but in this case, Magic), Alicorn
Rook - MALE, loyalty, pegasus.
Crabapple - MALE, Honesty, earth pony
Luau - Laughter, earth pony

I will be doing more stuff with them in the future :)
EDIT: I already did! Here's an 8 part comic with just them:
[link]

EDIT: This is getting silly. The last scene with Luna near the end is supposed to be an illusion to throw Celestia off. Some people seemed to think it was really her so.. I guess I didn't pull that off as well as I hoped.

This seems like a somewhat decent fanfic!
Too bad season 4 destroyed it and any hope of it being possibly canon.

Since its defeat, the miasma has come back fillynaping other victims; only one of which has returned. even then, the cross eyed victim is now to scared to talk. Another known victims' name is button mash, and the miasma has yet to return him. these victims none of these victims have been powerful enough to use as a vessel to wreak havoc on the world.

Question, why can't Celestia's parents intervene?

and I can see why the father is Orbash (Hasbro), not quite sure about Tau Sunflare...

Nimaru Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Tau Sunflare = Lauren Faust.
They can't intervene because they're restricted by various laws and limitations of the ponyverse. To break those laws, they'd have to break the ponyverse.

Hmmm, if a Double Rainboom is enough to almost destroy a small town. Imagine how much damage a Triple Rainboom would cause. If this was my accepted headcanon, i'd probably go with saying it was mostly the Triple Rainboom that destroyed the Everfree Castle

I'm not sure what Orbash might mean, but isn't T"au Sunflare" on of the names that Lauren Faust's "alicorn persona" gets on online forums and such?

Also, if you're interested in such thing, there are some cool videos I found on YouTube that kind of fit with your envision of Luna and Celestia prior to Luna turning into Nightmare Moon.

Tau Sunflare is my creation as far as I know. It's an anagram of "Lauren Faust". And Orbash's full name is "Orbash Duad Bonist" which means "the two who believe in a better world". And it's an anagram for "Hasbro and Studio B" :)

Well, like I said, I didn't recognize the Orbash reference.

But be assured, Lauren Faust has been represented as an Alicorn (different from the one you made, yes, but an Alicorn still) by ML: FIM fans for a while.
This "Alicorn Persona" is referenced by fans as: Mother Mare, Regal Moher, Queen Faust, Fausticorn, Rosetta, Harmony, and like I mentioned, also as Tau Sunflare.

Said Alicorn is usually made to be the mother of Celestia and Luna, and in some fan fiction works, Discord.

I found out about this on this Fan-fiction wiki page:

I'm well aware of various mother figures including the very common "Lauren Fausticorn". Though I don't know of anyone else who uses the name Tau Sunflare.

I do admit that is not the most popular name fans use, but I did know that it was one of the names they do use (I had no idea that it was an anagram for Lauren Faust. I'm not good at anagrams... I'm good at Tetris, however :) )

No. Actually my theory says, after for a thousand years, the miasma escaped the moon, causing a powerful magical reaction on the mother and father. Therefore, they ceased to exist and never returned. I hope Celestia and Luna are okay.

No, you misunderstand. Your description on your story doesn't have the credit, but it needs it. I'm just worried someone's going to report you for art theft since you weren't clear about the source. You did say it wasn't yours, but you really need to link to the main guy from there. I'm not trying to stomp on your creativity, but it's a pretty neat pic and it seems like the artist needs the recognition.

I just realized the other world where the Maisma came from WAS OUR WORLD!. Think about it, in the comic it says "In a different world, where dark feelings and pain are all to common, there are beings who know of Equestria, and some of them look apon it with hate or perversion.". The "Hate" part is supposed to be the people who hate MLP:FIM and/or hate on bronys. Saying that there "gay" or something else. And the "Perversion" part are supposed to be the cloppers.

One is the sun surrounded by a full circle rainbow in the sky, the other is the moon surrounded by a full "moonbow" in the night sky.

I plan to do some character sheets and art for them soonish so that should help explain.
