Fancy Hoofwork by CastoroChiaro Fancy Hoofwork by CastoroChiaro
I got bored while I was working on the update for the Dislestia blog, so I decided to color one of the doodles from my notebook. This was from a while back, when I was first experimenting with the style I use now. Just wanted to draw something of Celestia being cute and young and happy. c:

So think of this as a little tribute to the best my favorite pony. So hoping she gets an episode this season, gosh.

pretty sure you wouldn't be able to see her wings from this angle, but correct me if I'm wrong!

I went on the assumption that the angle of her body would obscure her wings when I drew this.

She...is white here? She has a pinkish tint, sure, but that's because I think it makes her look softer.

Woah woah woah what is this Dislestia blog?

The lack of wings because of the angle seems fine.

Celestia totally needs her own episode, I'm so sick of Luna.

Keep in mind that Luna's always been a plot device in those episodes, she hasn't exactly developed as a character either. Only with this last episode did she finally start to touch her sister's swag.

I don't care about that. She gets faaaar too much attention in the fanbase, and she's had two episodes dedicated to her. Her sister is actually pretty underrated.

By the way, please do not use the word "swag". It does not put you in a good light.

Also keep in mind that Celestia's fans are spoiled as can be. Luna artwork has not only gone downhill in quality, but there's nowhere near as much of it as there used to be. Even with lowered standards for Luna art but not Celestia art, I narrowly acquire Luna art at the same rate as Celestia art.

Celestia is underrated, but only by those (other than me) who have been seduced by whatever quality it is that Luna possesses that makes her appealing. By all rights, she's just the imperfect version of her sister that screwed up massively (understatement). I barely understand what I find appealing about Luna yet she still appeals to me as much as Celestia.

Part of the reason Luna has so much attention in the fandom is because a lot of bronies are too special to note the different between canon (a leader of unquestionable moral fiber that clearly has a sense of humor) and fanon (random power-abusing rapist that trolls). That, and Luna's fans are far too commonly obnoxious.

I wouldn't exactly call those her episodes, and technically 4 if we're counting episodes where she's been central to the plot, albeit whether or not the first two episodes of the series count depends on your headcanon for Luna. She's been a plot device in every episode. It'd be nice to see some actual character development take place, but bleh, that's not what I really want. What I want to see is some back story on the royal siblings.

Celestia does pop up more often in the series than Luna.

I was feeling risque.

To be specific in that first paragraph, it was Luna who messed up, not Celestia.

I forgot to mention the contribution that the NLR brings to Celestia not being as highly rated (or as I like to call these people and people from SE, crazies). They're probably the biggest proponents of nonsense in the fandom and understand less about the princesses than most people whose only contact with the fandom was to cosplay the princesses. The last three or four Celestia cosplayers from outside the fandom that i've seen talk about their thoughts on Celestia have a really clear cut understanding of who Celestia is and see the fanon debauchery as just that, debauchery.

For the record, i'm a fan of both princesses which probably makes me one very rare breed of person. Also, I was introduced to Celestia and Luna through fanon but, unlike other people, i then became interested in the characters and began to ask friends, "huh, what are they really like?" Then I just watched the show and boom, question answered. Why this is such a difficult concept for other people, I still don't quite understand.

I like Luna as well, but it'd be nice for Celestia to get a little time in the spot light. I feel like there's so much more to know about her but she just hasn't gotten a chance to show it!
