Tomorrow morning marks the solstice, where Celestia will need to be raising the sun for the yearly Summer Sun Celebration, and so today is all about our Solar Princess. I’m a sucker for any bit of pre-show history that covers the time that Twilight was studying under Celestia… as I’ve said before, I’d leap at a mini-series set in Canterlot with Celestia, Twilight, Cadance, Shining, etc…
And really, Celestia is such an underappreciated character with so many interesting questions about her left unanswered. Is her long lifespan natural, or an intentional effort of hers to live long enough to be reunited with her banished sister? Could her influence and rule over Equestria likewise have been an effort to ensure the conditions for her sister’s return? And of course, one still wonders about much of her and her sister’s origins… Even the Journal of the Two Sisters left much unanswered, and the show has deviated from some of the details that it did offer.
In any event, I could have probably spent longer on this one, but I really wanted something up for EQD’s Celestia Day. Perhaps I’ll revisit it sometime if I find the urge to take it further…
After being told to do so numerous times, I have finally set up a tip jar at Ko-Fi: ko-fi.com/harwicksart
If you’re feeling generous and would like to encourage me, feel free to drop me a small amount… it would be most appreciated!

Seeing this reminds me of an old question of mine: Was there ever an explanation for Spike learning the “send letters with breath magic” thing? In the comics or the books? I’m just curious. ;-)
