Our Dear Celestia by DigitalDasherBot Our Dear Celestia by DigitalDasherBot
I've been wanting to do this comic since the Season 2 finale, but things kept pushing it onto the back burner. I had hoped to finish it before season 3 started, but that just wasn't happening.

This comic takes place right after the Royal Wedding. I remember how floored we all were when our Alicorn-Sun-God went down. Then I started thinking about how SHE would
have felt about it. As usual, that led to lots of exposition.

I suppose this comic works as a bit of a companion piece to my Goodnight Luna comic, [link] but really it's made to stand on its own.

Now maybe I can go back to playing Guild Wars 2.

Edit: I've added the original script and thumbnails to my Scraps folder, [link] since it seemed like the kind of thing people might be interested in and it literally took me two minutes, so why not?

I wish they put this in the show. It would give Celestia some development. To me, Celestia is a Mary Sue. She has barely any flaws. She's pretty and powerful.

I think if you can give Celestia some development, than the creators of the show can give her some development too:)

One of the best MLP fan comics I have ever read! And a very good lesson for everypony to learn. It's very moving to see Princess Celestia doubting her own worth as Equestria's ruler and struggling with centuries of regret. But it's equally moving for Twilight to encourage Celestia with why she is still worthy of the throne and what truly makes her a great leader despite her weaknesses and flaws.

After seeing so much lowbrow humor of Celestia as a manipulator, tyrant or worse, it's very refreshing to see a fan story like this that is in the spirit of the TV show and worthy of being an episode. Well done, my friend. Brohoof!

This is outstanding.
You've done an incredible job with this, and I love how well you've characterized them.  Although I do think that there should have been a hug or nuzzle or something at the end of Twilight's speech.

Celestia is so underrated :( She is hated the most times, because she sent away Luna and people say, she doesn't do anything. She is just a wise ruler. All the things she did was because of her kingdom. And alot of people also hate on her just because she couldn't defeat Chrysalis. Atleast she fought and tried! And that is, what matters! I think, Celestia is a great ruler :)! And this comic is beautiful!

I second pretty much everything in there. I mean, it's fun to pick on every character in the show, but people often go too far with Celestia and Twilight.
