There's never any bad news in Equestria. Unfortunately
influenced me on this one indirectly with her super cute portrayals of the young royal sisters. Don't blame her though, this was all my doing.
It was cool figuring out how to make a newspaper photo effect. Unfortunately it washed out a lot of details like the horseshoe shaped bruises on Luna's back and the expressions of the guards administering first aid to the backup princess.
What can be said? When the Heir Princess wants to pluck her sister one whim and her parents aren't around, who can stop her?
The guard on the left had the audacity to shed a single tear... he was flogged in front of his company by his commanding officer.
This plays into my head canon of the real reason Luna flipped out and became Nightmare Moon.
UPDATE: Fixed the gross spelling error... I don't know which is more disappointing.
1)I was staring at the headline for two days and never caught it myself
2)Two runs of spell check never caught the error (is hier even a word!?)
3) that this thing was up for 12 hours before anyone called me out on it.
Probably #3... I blame you guys.
