Solar Empire vs. Lunar Republic by Faith-Wolff Solar Empire vs. Lunar Republic by Faith-Wolff
I don't own the symbols here
=Emkay-MLP owns them

Anyhoo
OH MY GOODNESS THIS TOOK FOREVER
I AM PROUD

...Moving on..
You're probably familiar with the idea of Luna creating the New Lunar Republic to overthrow Celestia's Solar Empire. It's a popular topic, and most people in the fandom choose a side. A LOT of pictures and most likely lots of fanfics are made for this, so I decided to jump the bandwagon XD

In this picture, you also see the Mane 6.....albeit divided. Half are for the Solar Empire, while the others are for the Lunar Republic. And their designs are a bit different~
If enough people ask, I might draw the Mane 6 in these outfits for people to see

So....whose side are you on?

well i would rather all of the mane 6 on the lunar republic except for rarity and pinkie pie and starlight glimmer be on the solor empire too because she took trixie place as twilight's student and part of the mane 7 and so i think starlight glimmer should no longer be twilight's student and part of the mane 7 then trixie takes starlight glimmer place as twilight's student and part of the mane 7 while being part of the lunar republic

Sorry, it's just, I truly don't understand luna. I personally cannot relate to her well. Celestia may be more developed if she gets an episode. I really hope so. I just choose celestia mostly because she is super underrated. But if there is a character who gets no attention or fans at all it's zecora! And I think the sun and moon should rule together. Because with just the moon, there would be no food, because plants cannot perform photosynthesis, so every single pony and other creature would die. Without a moon, tides would go crazy, and ponies would burn and overheat. So there.

yes, because the element of loyalty would flip sides and totally betray her element to side with a bunch of dangerous rebels with nothing better to do than throw stones at guards all day, I am sick of the new luna republic, its a DUMB concept when you divide the mane six

I remember a story in which equestria also was split apart but the NLR and the SE maintained good relationships. They split apart peacefully and Luna and Celestia ruled their territories differently but effectively. They keep the same currency and trade thrives between the nations. They will also defend each other no matter what. Celestia and Luna are still sisters and no matter how different their views may be that love will keep them (and their kingdoms) united. They visit each other often and send each other letters as much as they can. The Crystal empire splits off from equestria and becomes a separate nation, though it remained extremely close to both nations and also helps maintain good relationships. Celestia and Luna both state that their ultimate goal is to reunite their nations and remake equestria. Cadance says that the crystal empire's loyalty will always be to equestria and will rejoin them when that day comes.
Knowing the ponies this sounds actually more likely.

I say Twilight as a Princess would create a group apart and support Friendship. That is, if she an gt over her loyalty to Celestia. If she can, Twilight Team wins by far. She's helped a lot of ponies personally and she wants peace, which are both vey good reasons for ponies to join her.

Am I the only human who has read the comics,  Tia is depicted as a pony who feels the preasure of being perfect, she hides her mistakes and even then is afraid of admitting to her mistakes, she gets so scared she'll hide her mistakes until they pop up again. In that comic, it revealed that she and Starswirl were Bffs, in one of the univeres they go to, she falls in love with a guy there, but aparently it causes a rift if you get a relationship in a paraelle universe. Starswirl tells her to stop but she keeps going in private. He eventully finds out and their lost their friendship. One thousand years later, she goes through the mirror again for a week and when she returns she is-a little out of shape. Some growth hapens after the mane 6 leave. Luna is mad at her sister for not telling about this and this is what hapened Luna: "I understand you couldn't tell me...before. We weren't close during my....dark time before I was banished. but when I came back and returned to your side, you should have told me." Celestia:Luna! I just..I couldn't. This is the perfect example of my youth's folly. It's reckless and I can't believe I've let it go on for so long, I'm so ashamed." Luna:Not every royal has to be untarnished. You're only a pony after all." Celestia: "Thank you." Luna:"you're welcome" Luna:Twilight is going to find out about the truth when she's with him, you know that." Celestia: "*Sigh* I only hope she doen't less of me because of it." Luna: You should give her more credit she's like you in so many ways." For more celestia, go to #Dawnaandcake.

yes i read the comics, and i am completely against the idea of a Tyrant Celestia. i adore Tia and i find her a very interesting character

i mainly drew this piece because the general idea of SE vs NLR appealed to me back then.

Come now,  forget everthing
the future has to hold
blood stains, tainting our path
falling from the sky
If then, a warm burst of wind
wraps around vividly
A sign that we have nowhere to run.

Escape from this world
Escape from this world
From a twisted fate that is yet to become
It is so clear you're not the flower from hell
In this cursed life we have
Don't unravel yourself
Don't unravel yourself
don't allow them to rip them away

Parts of time vanishing in a silent visper

Hmmm.... Luna is the softer, more gentle of the two sisters; a dreamwalker and reliever of nightmares. The moon is also used as a symbol of love. Fluttershy, check.
Luna wears her heart on her tongue so to speak... her smiles and laughter ring perfectly true. She is also a master of illusion magic, comes across as mischievous and maybe even a bit of a prankster at times. Pinkie, check.
She may act on a whim, lashes out when angered sufficiently and has a really bad history regarding willing subordination to authority. Rainbow Dash, (half)check. Rainbow is fiercely protective towards Fluttershy and might get to command her own airforce. So maybe 3/4-check.

Yes, I'm on the NLR side I guess. And Luna is no Nightmare Moon... she wouldn't conjure night eternal. That would be really stupid.
Anyway, good job :)
I like these 'what ifs'.

Neither are trying to do that. But if the Solar Empire wins, we will all shrivel under the heat of the lengthened day. If the New Lunar Republic wins, we will all revel and grow in the longer moonlight!
