5-30-2012 Sweet Celestia, its been a year since I've submitted this? I can't believe how much this picture has captured the attention of the brony community and that it one was one of the first Celestia pics to stand up against her false characterizations! I would like to thank you all for your awesome comments I've gotten on this picture. Celestia probably feels so much better now that there are bronies who actually care about her!
OMG! NOW RED-SUPERNOVA'S SUBMITTING PONY ART! AHHHH!!!
Hey, it had to happen since I joined this fandom right?
Anyway, since I've joined the fandom and have watched all season one episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I've have grown very fond of Equestria's beloved ruler/goddess, Princess Celestia! I mean, for a ruler that happens to be sweet, kind, wise, and even fun-loving, that's pretty rare to see in the realm of fiction! A ruler who just wants to have as much fun as her people sounds cool to hang out with! But as I searched for fanart of her, most of what I saw was Celestia portrayed as cruel tyrant who has an obsession with banishing things to the moon if something doesn't go her way. For this, they refer to her as "Princess Trollestia". I for one do not believe that she is in anyway a troll. I mean, how can this be troll-like:[link]
I mean, yes that was a silly prank but it seemed harmless! Everyone else seems to think she's cruel and abusive to her people and sister!
Now for the record about her sister, I would like to let you all know that I too love Luna. Can't love Celestia without Luna you know!
But it seems that everyone forgot about the emotion they went through in episode 1 and 2! I mean, didn't the opening narrative in episode 1 say that Celestia was filled with great sadness and regret after banishing Luna to the moon for a millennium? And weren't both sisters crying at the end of episode 2 when they were finally reunited? I think why a lot of people didn't take that into consideration is because of one thing: Luna did not appear after episode 2. People have been saying stuff like "She sent her back to the moon" and "She has her locked up in the castle prison!" But you know what the real reason is? The writers didn't think of it! I don't think they were aware of Luna's following until season one ended. And for that, they have conformed that Luna would be returning in season 2. I am all for that. I would love to know more about Luna and Celestia's backstories! They're my favorite secondary characters of the show!
But despite all this, I still see "Trollestia" stuff everywhere. Even Equestria Daily has succumbed to this! [link] [link]
So basically, this picture is Celestia getting heckled by all the people who support the "Trollestia" bullshit and is emotionally hurt by their lies for the fact that she would never do such things.
So if you do support her for the way she is, then there might be a way to erase all the hate she's been getting. All I just hope is that none of this hate will affect Celestia in the next season. For those who still think she's a troll, watch episodes 1 and 2 again AND listen to this song:[link]
then come back and tell me if you still think Celestia is still a trollish, tyrant with a banishment obsession. I'd highly think you'll have a change of heart.
Phew! That was a quite a rant. I gotta get some water. Hope you like my first attempt at MLP:FiM fanart!
