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?

Edit edit: Youtube voiced version done by MindlessGonzo and IMShadow007! [link]

When you can write something and I hear the characters in my head - I hear Celestia and Twilight speaking - then it means you have done something very right. Thank you very much for something beautiful.

Great comic :D (Big Grin) Clap  Also because I think, Celestia is much too underrated

I sometimes wonder whether putting these big duties on Twilight was just plot convenience.  It's nice to see explanations (especially why Celestia couldn't wield the Elements), as well as seeing a weaker side of the usually regal and composed Celestia.  This should totally be canon :D  A rare occasion in which the student brings up the teacher :)  Wonderful comic <3

A touching possible explanation for those bronies who believed that Princess Celestia was pushing the burden of protecting Equestria unto other ponies.
