This is still epic.

I imagine something likes this went down during the first Nightmare Night, back when my headcanon of the Princesses are that they were cosmic entities that settled down and created the ponies.

Regardless. I would say I want to see the results of THIS fight, but I know it probably won't be pretty to watch for the common pony back then.

Celestia would crush Nightmare Moon like an insect. She does draw power from the Sun, after all, how can power facilitated from a floating ROCK be any harm to her?

To be honest, I don't know how she hadn't been corrupted by her power yet.

She needed the elements to defeat Nightmare Moon. So either Luna's jealousy and anger made her five times more powerful so Celestia isn't as powerful as you thought or they created the elements by sacrificing some of heir power and in doing so limited the power she and Luna could use. So either she knows that there is always something that can beat her or she sacrificed a great deal of power in making the elements. Then we have to consider Chrysalis...

Or maybe she doesn't want to hurt her sister through possible accidental overuse of her power?

Then again, in canon the Luna was supposed to be possessed, so it is possible her power had been augmented by anger and jealousy...

Chrysalis was cheating by siphoning love energy from Shining Armor, but I'll give you that.

It is possible that Princesses sealed a lot of their powers away and limit the amount they use. Good call, haven't thought of that.

Or much of it is focused on keeping the "natural" balance. Raising the sun and moon must take up a lot of energy. But then if that were true, since Luna is the bringer of the night (don't wanna say goddess since someone might get butthurt) than that would mean she is more powerful than Celestia because of the billions of stars but has to use far more energy to guide the stars and moon. So when she turned into NNM she might have stopped bringing out the stars, giving her a surplus of power, forcing Celestia to use the elements(the most powerful artifacts known to ponies and obviously, Alicorns)

This got very complicated very fast XD

BrutalityInc Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012
Always thought of that possibility. Then again, I say that they are both just as powerful, as when NMM was sealed away, Princess Celestia raised both the Sun AND the Moon. That also implies that Princess Luna could also take over when needed to be.

Indeed. Bottom line is the elements will own everything... Except in fanfiction >.>

Reminds me of a piece of backstory in a Fire Emblem game. With details of Naga's fight with Loptous being the most prominent.

Heck. Celestia's looks even remind me of a Divine Dragon (like Naga) and Nightmare Moon's looks remind me of a Dark Dragon (like Loptous).
