Celestia freeks out by Abrr2000 Celestia freeks out by Abrr2000

I was browsing my folder of art, and I noticed that there are about 10 pictures of Luna for every one of Celestia. and even then Luna's usually in it.

So I wondered what Tia's response to this would be... ^^

I think its because of your mane Celestia

I really don't understand all the love Luna gets. I mean I like her too but I think the fan love doesn't have much backing to it, show wise. I would love to see some sister episodes where we explore not only their past but more of them as individuals because , and let's be honest here, we knew very little about them

A lot of Luna's appeal to the audience is that she doesn't have the total confidence that Celestia does. Celestia's public presence, and even her private one to an extent, is perfect, infallible, unassailable, invulnerable, eternally wise.

Luna, while more comfortable with ruling a country than, say, Twilight (who also has a very similar vulnerability appeal), is unsure of herself to a degree, and deliberately visually presented as being smaller and younger than Celestia. She's also more out of touch with modern society - another flaw that Celestia doesn't have - and sometimes behaves inappropriately (the Canterlot Royal Voice, amongst other things). She's scrambling to be worthy of the role she's been handed, much the same as Twilight, although with the variant that it's a role she once fit into perfectly but no longer does as well because it's changed out from under her. (On the other side of the coin, Twilight is scrambling to fit into the role of Princess for the first time.)

Effectively, Celestia is most often presented as being almost entirely subsumed by her role. Which is not surprising - for a thousand years she's been The Princess; barely anypony knew the true personality behind the crown. Luna, on the other hand, is seen first as Nightmare Moon, and then as the tiny blue almost-foal when she's separated from it, and then we're given glimpses of her interacting far more one-on-one with the populace (both in person and while dreamwalking).

Luna's more relatable because her problems are personal (speech patterns, fitting in, having to learn the current state of Equestrian law/relations/society/technology/culture, while Celestia's problems tend to be presented as problems of the position - wars, diplomacy, ambassadors, monsters attacking Equestria in general, having to walk new alicorns through their ascendancies... :)

In short, Luna is a character, Celestia is a plot element.

I've been saying that since season 1.  sadly, I don't think were going to get it.

It's an underdog thing...also has to do with her color-scheme and personality.
Winterfrost321 Featured By Owner May 29, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm if Luna's seen dA before, she probably would never have been NNM.
Hell-Er Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015
,,I just want to be loved" - bullshit. You just jealous. Cause you have even more episodes, but for some "wonderful" reasons you are not loved in community as much as Princess Luna does. So GTFO from my eyes with your tyranny stuffs.
P.S And let us know when you give Throne to Princess Luna. This is will be the moment of truth.

gaiatheleafeon Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Of course that Brony Portrays Celestia as an Evil Monster that WANTED to send Luna to the moon!
Abrr2000 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
unlikely, as the Broney depicted is me.
gogopri Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In the title , I think it's supposed to be spelled "Freaks"
gogopri Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
And  of course I would make a typo in that comment... (the comma spacing)
Champion137 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014

SoulSpade Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I feel the guilt coming over me of having only one Celestia drawing in my gallery

sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012

Poor Celestia. She's totally misunderstood, eh?

Sorry Celestia but its just so hard to draw your mane! ;)
Even so Celestia is one of the best ponies!
tristem101 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
I have to sumpathise with Celestia on this. She really gets a bad rap when she doesen't really deserve it. I not really done anything to substanciate a lot of negative claims about her.
BlackWidower Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012  Professional Writer
The reason is because Celestia's boring.
Celestia12345 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Oh hi how was your day I'm going to kill you now bye!
Hawkbittern Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Student General Artist
The fandom could try to make her interersting. On the other hand the way most fans make Luna boring as hell perhaps they shouldn't try.
BlackWidower Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Professional Writer
Yeah, the fans suck at everything. It's all design by committee bullshit.

ponylover555 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012

MollyFlutter Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012

ZDForrest Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love you, Tia! Honest! Don't make me call the nice people!
Dradas Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
Aww poor Celestia...
NikoAccampora Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Well, i don't draw you. I POSE you.(Gmod) And i'll tell you, posing is a LOT more difficult than posing other ponies.
...But hey, i'm always up for a challenge.
IronBrony Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
:icondashlolplz: Yeah, Celestia needs some some fan art love.
fatfan12345 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
LE CURSE WORD!? THIS IMAGE OF SWEET SWEET SO ADORABLE CELESTAI FREAKING OUT IS NOT IN MY FAVE'S YET WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? well i fixed that problem... poor Celestia i just want to glomp her so bad.
d715 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2012
I ended up liking Celetia more than Luna becuase she never gets any love
Crusadier Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012
vglgvn Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012
Well it's only because Celestia is an evil tyrant who trapped her own sister on the mood for a thousand years because she didn't want to share the spotlight.
Also Luna is more sympathetic, everyone has felt like a loner at some point. In the Halloween episode, she was an outsider, people feared her. If you say you've never felt like people have purposely avoided you, you're lying.
NikoAccampora Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I do believe you're a bit ill-informed. Perhaps will lighten your mind up a bit: [link]

Practice drawing one Celestia immediately.
