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]

Not all comics need to be funny. Some, like this one, need to be said, so that those who feel this way can learn to feel happiness again. If one cannot feel happiness, how can they laugh?

Dang fine little reads here dude... :)
I'm reading this and thinking, man, this is like the exact event plan in the fanfic lunar apprehension, Luna gets jealous of celestia, disorientating the star pattern completely to see if any pony would notice,
nightmare moon comes along and "possesses" Luna, causing her to wreck havoc on ponyville, celestia bans her to the moon for 1000 years, 1000 years later she comes back, is always depressed about what she used to be, always messing up the star pattern, and soon it leads to this, except its either I haven't read it yet, or vypor didn't put it in the story.
yah, that all came from the series, it was in kinda like a background story to it

"Tell me, would you ever try to repeat the things you did as Nightmare Moon?"

"NO! No. Never."

"Nor would I repeat the sins I made in my youth. The guilt and regret I feel ensures that. Now, I guard others. Not just to make up for the past, but because I can recognize the importance in it. You will NEVER be Nightmare Moon again. The mare you are now will make sure of that."

man... you have no idea how much i need to read, or at least think of this sometimes.

All ponies were not that 'stamine less ' like no energy and still doing nothing but guarding for one year?  impossible, so she needs a rest. x3

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 :).

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
