This fanfic is based on the Derpibooru event that happened not long ago from my point of view.
I put almost no effort into writing this (although I had written a longer fanfiction with more effort put into it until I scrapped it and started over). Part of the reason I even wrote this is so we could all agree that what I wrote is complete trash, that I’m a worse writer than I am an artist (which would be saying a lot haha), and I should just forget about fanfiction.
Anyways, here’s the first chapter:
It’s been a few years since Princess Twilight Sparkle took the throne. Ever since she and her friends defeated the all-powerful Legion of Doom in what was thought to be the final battle of good versus evil, Equestria has been at peace. Under Twilight’s rule, Equestria has become a place for all creatures, not just ponies, to live in. Everything was fine until one night, something terrible had happened.Not long ago, I woke up one morning and saw that the world had changed. Twilight Sparkle had vanished overnight and was nowhere to be found. The sun and the moon were both raised and the sky was split into half-day and half-night. Equestria became divided after the royal sisters had an argument about who was the superior princess. The land touched by the light of the sun became the Solar Empire, and the land covered in darkness became the New Lunar Republic. Celestia and Luna were at war. Friends, families, and couples found themselves against each other, fighting on opposing sides, as if the world had suddenly been infected by a hate plague, and not the kind of plague the Dazzlings created years ago in the human world. This was like a different plague, one that gave ponies the urge to kill other ponies for their beloved princess.My name is Starless. I fought for the New Lunar Republic, standing by Princess Luna for the majority of the war. I fought relentlessly for days, battling fighters of the Solar Empire without mercy, becoming consumed by my love for the princess and desire to win this war for myself. I was always a pony of darkness, but this war gave me a newfound love for Princess Luna and the night.When the war began, the Lunar Castle, formerly known as the Castle of the Two Sisters, had been magically restored. I, and all other ponies who resided in Luna’s territory, were called to the castle to await a speech from Princess Luna. As I walked inside, I saw a squad of bat ponies consisting of some of Luna’s most elite warriors, as well as a few of my friends. We all stood together as Luna begun to speak with her royal voice:“Citizens of the New Lunar Republic, for millennia the night has been in the shadow of the day, and I have been in the shadow of my sister, who has now become filled with pride and arrogance. She and I no longer rule together, for we will fight for independence and freedom from the tyranny of my sister. We will win this war for the moon and the night, against the blinding light of the sun. Each of you are now fighters for the republic, defenders of the night. Those who fight well will forever be remembered as heroes of the republic and will have the honor of dating me, but every pony who fights in this war is a hero to me, for you are all children of the night!”I didn’t care much to date Princess Luna at first, although I did always admire her, as I had been dating Sunset Shimmer, who fought for the Solar Empire. But after being around her for a few days, getting to know her whenever we weren’t in battle, I fell in love with her, and so did every pony else. Luna is the most beautiful pony I’ve ever met in my life. She embodies the night and what makes it so beautiful and mysterious. It felt good to be in the New Lunar Republic.
