Goodnight, Luna by DigitalDasherBot Goodnight, Luna by DigitalDasherBot
I apologize that this isn't a "funny" comic. Probably next time.

Lots of things I could talk about on this one, but instead I'm just going to shut up and back away from it for a bit. I can always edit some commentary in later if I'm feeling chatty.

Edit: Dubbed comic video version by MindlessGonzo and IMShadow007! [link]

Another good story. I would guess this takes place right after Luna's redemption in the series opener and before the events of "Luna Eclipsed" and Nightmare Night... just before Luna assumes the role as the Guardian of Dreams for the young ponies. She becomes like a mother figure intervening in Scootaloo's and Sweetie Belle's dreams and gently leading them to find the source of their fears.

This comic has great potential, and you got it perfectly. ;)
This has given me an idea for a story I'm writing. :) Your comics are very inspiring.

I LOVE humour in comics, but this it not an artwork to apologize for! :)

I found your profile via the dub of Our Dear Celestia, but I actually like this one a lot better.
It's really great to have some character development for the royal guards, and also to see male ponies with extended speaking lines.

Luna and Celestia both have a lot of depth to their character, and I think this adds something important to Luna.
(Edit: She still struggles with her internal demons, and is genuinely challenged by them)
But more importantly to me it reminds us that all those background guards have lives, and stories, and experiences of their own.

I've created a world for my friends to roleplay in using Dungeons and Dragons as a platform, and I always struggle to come up with responses when my PCs ask the town guard questions.
I dream of having this kind of depth for all my background characters :).

Lol, that was cute but I think I seen this a while back but it was good to see it again.

Awwe, This is truly heart warming. I actually like it being a Guard to help Luna through the tough night.
It might seem weird, but considering how socially out of the loop she is.

It actually makes a bit of sense, and through this experience she sees that the ponies around her are
not just peasantry, but ponies with their own lives, who are equally as wise in different things. It's a heart
warming and yet a wake up call moment for her, which makes it even the more wonderful to read.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

her wondering who she is and mentioning that her being back has no purpose sounds a hell of a lot like she's having an existential crisis or is it just me?

With Luna purged from NMM and everything...
Why in the name of sanity is there still a Mare in the Moon?

...Might make a nice horror story.

As someone who just recently became a Brony (Spring 2014) this was one of the first fan comics for MLP:FiM I managed to stumble across. It was also the first truly heartwarming (and also still is the MOST heartwarming) I have come across.
gamexpert1990 Featured By Owner May 31, 2014
Well as far as how I, personally, managed to come across this, I think I was just looking at some fan comics that were linked over at tv tropes, and I just kept opening new tabs for "Similar on Deviantart." That's basically what I mean when I say "stumbled across."
DigitalDasherBot Featured By Owner May 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, thank you. I always wonder how new readers are finding these old comics. I guess folks out there are still linking them, which is pretty flattering.
