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 was reading the comments in 'Oldest First' mode and when I saw somepony saying anti-Celestia words I was like 'No! Really? Even this comic can't move you?' Very well, once again it is proved that haters are going to hate and, more often than not, they look for reasons (sometimes even excuses) in attempt to rationalize their hatred instead of choosing their opinions on characters according to an actually reasonable interpretation of the show.

Which is why I struggle every time when reading comments of Celestia-related comics. Tia is one of my favorite ponies and, in my mind, the most underrated character (about which I wish I am wrong). It is therefore a great comfort for me to finally see somepony expressing opinions about Tia that agree with mine, and that over 700 ponies else share my viewpoints. Tia's true feelings deserve to be heard by more people. Sadly, though, after typing the previous sentence, I realized that haters would choose to go on hating no matter what they hear.

Maybe the fact is that lovers and haters both form their opinions based on first impressions or personal preferences rather than reasons. After all, we can't help being driven by emotions. My only choice seems to be to constantly come back to this comic so that whatever I hear from haters I can tell myself that I am not the only lover of Tia and there are many people behind the fourth wall to understand and support her.

I'm a English learner so if I have made some grammar mistakes above, I am really sorry.

I agree entirely, and there also needs to be a Celestia episode.

This was amazing, and beautiful. It gives some major insight to Celestia's feelings, and shows how much Twilight has helped her to come to grips with her past mistakes. You did an amazing job on this. Well done.
Oh my god....the feels are too great, I feel all warm inside. VERY positive comic and VERY INSPIRING AND UPLIFTING

does anyone else see that twilight is flying with her wings UNDER her dress. shouldn't they be OVER her dress.
DigitalDasherBot Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This comic is circa the Royal Wedding (Season 2 Finale), so it's pre-wings (Season 3 Finale).
She's not really flying in the last panel, just jumping a bit. I should have put a sound effect in.

GamerSpax Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015
This was a very well made comic and definitely pointed out some of the big issues with Celestia and how Twilight and others view things.

The only part I would disagree with in some regard (though what you wrote wasn't untrue either) is when Twilight was talking about fighting against the changeling army and failing.  I just simply saw the Mane 6 being escorted back peacefully without and bindings or any battle damage.  To me, that comes off as they give up without an actual fight and I hated that.  If they really tried to fight to the end to victory, I would like to see more battle damage on them and maybe them in chains or the goo that was being used to restrain some of the ponies.
