Cold and Broken by Neko-me Cold and Broken by Neko-me
Commission for :iconmoppypuppy:

“Perhaps I was wrong to make you my personal protégé.” Celestia said coldly as she looked down on her exhausted student in the moonlight, a grim reminder of Nightmare Moon's approaching return.

After hours of magical endurance training, Twilight’s magic was completely drained. Celestia was displeased with her performance.
Filly Twilight was looking forward to sleeping with her mentor Celestia as per usual, seemingly her last comfort since Celestia accelerated her education. But without her magic Twilight was unable to assist herself up the high stairs leading up to Celestia’s bed chamber.
Twilight was still just a filly, she struggled up each step, but her small frail body ran out of strength just short of the top. Twilight began to cry as she knew she couldn't make it on her own.

Her mentor just walked away, stranding a tearful filly Twilight on the cold staircase.

In that moment filly Twilight's heart was broken, longing for Celestia’s approval and affection, she finally began to fully accept that her time as a filly was over, even if Celestia wouldn't and couldn't tell her why.

Twilight was Celestia's student, she would do her royal duty, and as far as Twilight was concerned, the fate of Equestria did not rest on her making friends or her own happiness.

...Jesus, that's depressing. Jarringly dark, too. I love it! You really did properly convey the tone that the description set for the picture. I can find almost nothing wrong with this picture, although I'll admit that Twilight looks a bit misshapen in places. Other than that, kudos to you. I really do love the dramatically cast shadows and the negative vibe that the work gives as a whole. I've never given the story being represented a good read, but I just might do so sometime soon after seeing this. Definitely being favorited. Great job, and keep up the good work!

The picture shows a Celestia disappointed, I know the cause, but it must be an action that did not expect Twilight committed. Sadly Twilight shows a sad and pleading, cries asking forgiveness who is her teacher, friend and a second mother to her.
I must say the picture quality is excellent, I like the way you work perspective and shadow effects, you can appreciate a good command of the strokes and knowledge regarding the combination of colors. The characters are very well proportioned. In my opinion, is a creative and beautiful work, the story is handled is very well represented in this work, I would like to see more of this story.

Good job.

This is so beautiful. I love it. ^_^ Twilight's sadness is so palpable, I just want to cuddle her and let her know it's all going to be okay. Cute and sad.

Well this sucks donkey balls :/

Completely the opposite of who Celestia is, completely the opposite of what would happen, and completely the opposite of happy.

Even if that's exactly what they wanted, I'd still be ashamed if I had gotten it this accurate, myself.

"Celestia", boomed a deep voice within the castle, "From what I have witnessed, you are no longer fit to rule Equestria". "If this is how you treat your pupils, I fear what will become of the kingdom.


"Who are you", Celestia asked warily.


"I am the Guardian of Equestria's Past, Present and Future". "I have seen your future; if you continue down this road, you will die cold and ALONE".

"Therefore...you will be banished to the Everfree Forest and stripped of your powers". "I shall mentor Twilight Sparkle in her studies and run this kingdom until she comes of age; Then Twilight Sparkle shall take your place and raise the Sun and Moon until the 1000th year at the Summer Sun Celebration in Ponyville". "Now, BEGONE"!

    I was never alive!
… slightly mad, slightly dead
There was no way for survive
… drive me sad, drive dead
And there is nothing alive!
All I have… all I had:
Is just the pulse of the dead
