This is a interpretation of the April Fools 2023 Solar Empire vs New Lunar Republic event from the point of view of My Royal Guardmare OC Eclipse, more information on her here, in the form of diary entries.
This is my first fic, so go easy.
Day before The Civil War
Eclipse’s Diary Entry 35, 3-31-1111 C.E.
Huh, it’s been awhile since I’ve written one of these things. I guess it’s uneventful the past…what? 5 month or so since the Storm King’s Invasion, so there’s been no need for me to vent about anything after that whole spiel I did last time. About how almost the entire E.U.P was on Mandatory Leave on that day because of some higher up thought it’d be a great idea, ’Because it was the Friendship Festival!’ he said, and somehow getting Her Majesty Princess Celestia to agree despite mine and many others in the Guard’s protests and if I was there, I would have so kicked that Tempest Mare’s flank for daring to even thinking about attacking Her Majesty!
Scratched out crude drawing of a broken horned Unicorn Stick Pony being bucked in the flank by a Royal Guard Pegasus Stick Pony.
But, I went on forever about all this last time. As for the now, things been getting a bit frustrating for the Guard with all the protesting and complaining from the lower class citizens about that stupid unnecessary tax bill those Upstuck Nobles somehow slip past Her Majesty! I honestly don’t know why she keeps them around. I swear they have to always make things worse, but this is the way Her Majesty’s always done things… and I guess they’re not all bad, like Fancy Pants, Sweet Bun, and Gray the First, unfortunately, they’re the rare exception. But, I probably shouldn’t question Her Majesty, she has her reasons, even if I don’t understand them.
I can never get my head around these politics, despite working in close proximity with the Princesses these past couple years, the way I understood it from Lightpoint when reporting in Her Majesty and Princess Luna about what those Tricky Nobles pulled off, is they hid a clause in some bill, and apparently distracted Princess Celestia when it was being approved so she wouldn’t notice, that doubles the tax rate on sugar, which of course is funneled right into their greedy fat Bit pouches and obviously made all of bakers in the Empire furious, I bet that didn’t make Countess Sweet Bun happy at all. Celestia, her sweet rolls are amazing, although not as good as Donut Joe’s donuts. Wait, I guess this is mean his donuts would be more expensive now… Bucking Nobles!
Lightpoint also reported something about rumors of a Nightmare Moon Cult popping up, which must be just unfounded rumors, Princess Luna is such a kind if a bit quirky at times Pony and what ponies would really want her to go back to being that monster. She was so wrecked with guilt when she returned, which thankfully after the incident in Ponyville with that living nightmare a year ago and some much needed therapy afterwards, Princess Luna seems to be much better on that now.
And Lightpoint that insufferable brown-nosing Lightpoint! Of course reported all this with that usual lovey-dovey look in his eyes towards Her Majesty!… I’m stuck guarding Princess Luna for years now, while he gets to follow her around all day like a love sick puppy! It always makes my feathers ruffle!… I wish her majesty would reassign me back to her personal guard, that’s the whole reason I join up with the E.U.P in the first place was to be in service of HER! Not her sister!… and here I am complaining about the same thing again.
It’s not fair to think that way towards Princess Luna, she’s always been very thoughtful towards me and her other staff and readily adamant towards the protection of her subjects. Which I’ve is something always respected her for even in the early days, when I was first assigned to her, with her odd little quarts she had from being out of touch because of her banishment. Same goes with the BatPonies and their fierce loyalty towards her, which is something I understand and respect considering my own devotion towards Her Majesty Princess Celestia. And you think after 3 years of service with them I would be used to the screeching and the rare occasional Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice nowadays… but no I’m not. Thank Celestia for those enchanted ear plugs!…
And speaking of the BatPonies… they have been very odd and skittish lately. I mean more than usual, it’s like they’re actively avoiding me for some reason. When I cornered Private Mango Sweet about it earlier, she stammer on something about a BatPony only Attack Training Drill ordered by Princess Luna, which I guess makes sense?, but it’s odd I wasn’t informed on it or at the very least over heard it at some point considering how close I am with Princess Luna all day when she’s up at least…
Whatever, it won’t matter for me, cuz I finally get some Requested Leave for the week, YAY! First time in a while and I’m going to sleep in all day tomorrow, then finally hang out with my civilian friends for more than an hour at a time, eat some apparently expensive donuts! And not worry about whatever going on with civil disagreements, supposed imaginary cults, mysterious BatPony Night Guard drills and whatever craziness ends up popping up… then hopefully after my Leave finished Princess Celestia will finally accept my request to transfer back to her personal guard.
Arthur notes: This takes place sometime in the middle of season 8. The in year 1111 C.E. (Celestial Era) is a reference to ‘Horseplay’ where it was 1111 years since Princess Celestia first rose the Sun, which would be a defining calendar event.
I also have a headcanon that the entire series takes place within 4 years, with season 8 being an entire year on its own because of the school focus element.
And if you see any spelling or grammar mistakes please let me know so I can fix it.

I did enjoy this fic diary momentum from Eclipse. Very refreshing for your first time, Dear Twiny.
Bravo! ✌︎(•w•)✌︎
It’s a good thing she is having her day off, hope she get’s back her transfer.
She was venting indeed. Dx lol
Is “spiel” a typo or I’m getting German Eclipse vibes? O.o’
Lightpoint was spot on, good job. XD
Now, everything is really good, this reminds me those old day fics I used to encounter.
Now the grammar, for a better experience on behalf of every reader, you should use spelling marks to emphatic better the emotions that you’re portraying in the story telling.
Overall, it’s great but if you’re aiming for ongoing fanfiction, you should consider the marks. =D

Thanks you glad you liked it.
I honestly didn’t know spiel was a German word until I looked it up. The way I’m using it is the English for a long speech.
And by spelling marks do you like mean explanation marks more often? Cuz I meant there are some points where I could have emphasized how angry or excited she was with them. Probably should had someone proofread this before uploading it.

You’re welcome! I thank you for your efforts and sharing it. ^ - ^
Ooh, for a sec I thought you were German there. Ja ja ja! Deutsch laugh (not meant to be racist!)
About the spelling marks it’s not necessarily, it’s just an advise. Is up to you if you want them or not, in my case, I did understood Eclipse’s emotions portrayed; but the marks is for emphasizing more, you know what I mean? Like I said, it could be just me XD
Someone else proofreading it should help too. =D
