Celestia's abuse by Red-Supernova64 Celestia's abuse by Red-Supernova64
Update : 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? :roll:

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! :nod: 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!

Fortunitly, the hate against Celestia has been fading away ever since I made this pic. :) But now Celestia is being ignored by the writers. :(

I was referring to the show writers since the show is the most important aspect about FiM. But tell me what this book is about.

It's about Celestia going to this place called Monacolt to help a friend called Dutchess Diamond Wave help her students I believe make waves.

I just read Derpibooru's feedback about it. A lot of them didn't like it because they're saying that Celestia did nothing in the book.

Is that true (no spoilers please, I wanna read it)? I read Journal of Two Sisters and she did stuff in there, like talking to that dragon in her Royal Canterlot voice.

It's eighter: let Nightmare Moon win, let all her subjects die if starvation, never see her sister again, and quite possibly be killed, let Equestria be abandoned and long forgotten forever.

OR

let her sister go to the moon for 1,000 years (and see her again because she is immortal) let her subjects survive, and let Equestria be happy.

And I think they made her banish Luna to give her some flaws, which is what makes characters relatable and likeable

Clapping Pony Icon - Princess Celestia Clapping Pony Icon - Nightmare Moon Well put.  It is so nice to some logic on the internet. Now, I might be more of a Sonic and Mario fan (you can probably tell that), but I had gotten into MLP:FiM a little while ago (call me a casual fan, if you will ) and I really think we need more stuff like this in this fandom (and many other fandoms; such as Sonic's). So, good work.+fav

Thanks! The constant hate around Celestia has lessened since I originally made this pic but her popularity is still nowhere near the levels of Princess Luna's or Fluttershy's.

So you're new to the fandom? No worries, the show is easy to jump right in and get hooked.

Since I've drawn this pic, a lot of other pro-Celestia drawings have been created as time has gone by and a lot of them are better than my pics to be honest. If you're interested, you also can join this group :iconprotect-celestia-fc: in which I am a co-founder of. (You got that right about Sonic. He has some of the worst fans.)

Alright.

I actually was thinking of joining and I may or may not do that today, depending on if I will be busy or not.

(Sadly yes, he does. sigh Though, thankfully, he also has good ones. )

she doesn't help the mane 6 much on their missions? SO?! She doesn't hold the elements of harmony anymore; THEY DO! (I'm aware that they gave them up, though.)

That didn't stop her from helping Twilight realize Discord's plan in The Return of Harmony. Plus, Celestia can be used in much more than the opening and closing episodes of each season.

Take into account of Celestia's lack of screentime for this season and you'll have the most unappreciated character in the show.

Its too bad a lot of good characters get hayed, I never seem the show. But I say a favorite of mine named weed gets a lot of hate all because he's forgiving, also avoid killing as much as he can and give a chance for his enemies to change like Rocket did, a couple of their enemies in the show become allies.

Princess Celestia is my Idol!

 

I too am a big sister, and mine is a 10-year-old high functioning autistic!   But I could probably couldn't even send her away for a MONTH let alone 1000 years!
