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:

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.

Was that a subtle Harry Potter reference? :P

I don't remember any HP references in here.

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.

.. Should'nt the "past" elements of harmony be the G1 ponies or something?
.. Because seriously, not to be rude or anything but these OCs really, really bad.

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
