and twilight would say...YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
"Luna Eclipsed"I see what you did thar...actually it's not that that hard to figure out...
Finally! Luna returns!
May need to get Comcast XD
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
Finally.... The Luna has come back to MY LITTLE PONY!!!
22nd of October eh?Oh well, I guess I can wait...
i assume your implication is that the luna fan fiction committed suicide?, if fanfics died when they became none canon, there'd be no fanfics, luna fics will always be fun even if they are a separate continuity
I'm dressing up for Nightmare Night as someone who is happy with this news.
All my bits!!!!!!!!
LUUUNNNAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!Oh how I've waited for this.
luna yes the best pony finally gets her own episode (in my option)
The world is a wonderful place once more! YAY LUNA!
Wooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!I'm so happy that you got an episode all for yourself :D(hugs)
This is soo aweome /)^3^(\Although I think, that the 29th of October would be a better release date for a halloween episode, but oh well. Who cares... The sooner, the better. :P
Okay.Time to unleash the hypenator!YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES!LUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNALUNA!
"oddly scented Kool-Aid"Aha. Spiked punch. I see what you did there.
OH MY GOD.PREPARE FOR A FANFICTION TSUNAMIAnyway I'm looking forward to this one. It's weird to think that the real Luna(as in not Nightmare Moon) was on screen for about 2 or 3 minutes at most, even though she plays a pretty major role in the world, being the second princess and all.Also does anyone else think the plot sounds a bit like the fanfiction "Giggling Moon"?Not complaining. I thought that that could have been an actual episode.
My body will never be ready enough.
HALLELUNA!...well, somepony had to say it.
Just need to add AU to story descriptions of the Luna fanfics, and we should be fine.
This was bound to happen
Of course, now this very well means the dismantling of just about every single fanon personality Luna has been given. A real shame, when you look at it. We may need to split up the Luna fics into pre-appearance and post-appearance. It could get confusing otherwise.
Wait, 10AM? If it normally airs at 9AM on the US East Coast, then where the hell would it air at 10AM?
I had no doubt, but it's still great to see real conformation. In other words, LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![\end spam]
20 bits says Luna's canon personality is like a tanuki's, mischievous and jolly but somewhat absent-minded. That plus a small bit of sadness. Any takers?Oh right the announcement, wonderful bit of news that brightened my day. The wait for the episode is going to drive me mad, well that or my midterms.
Luna Episode... Excuse me, I just had a Joygasm all over my computer. Never gonna get it cleaned up. Oh well.In the Words of Rainbow DashOMIGOSHOMIGOSHOMIGOSHOMIGOSHOMIGOSH!In the Words of FluttershyyayIn a style The CMC would useCUTIE MARK CRUSADERS LUNA EPISODE WATCHERS YAY!
Cool.Now I can officially lock down my spoilers for this episode.LOCKDOWN! =D
Two things:1. Twilight Gleeful time. -starts bouncing around chanting "YES YES YES!"2. It's OK, Luna fanfics. Even if you get made incorrect by canon, you're still fantastic. We'll still love you.
@ToonNinjaI'm sure some of the fics will get her personality right. I think the likeliest one is a mischievous, free-spirited Luna.
@quesoesbueno59That is the time it's going to air on the East Coast. The reason I sent that email in the first place was actually to point out how the timeslot has changed.
Luna episode in a few weeks, eh? Well, I guess that's not TOO long to wait............screw it. QUICKLY, MARTY! READY THE TIME MACHINE!!!*drives off in a DeLorean, which sparks and vanishes, leaving a burning trail of fire*
Finally, fanfiction writers have more than a minute and two lines of dialogue to work with!22nd, why you come so late?
Can anypony record the episode?I can barely wait! X3
Some people are complaining about it destroying the Luna fanfics and the fanon image of Luna. I say those were okay during the summer while we anxiously awaited season 2, but now that it's here, I say great! I want to see what Luna's really like according to the people who are actually in charge of it.
Finally a Luna episode, now the countdown to what she is in canon.
Oh man I'm gonna miss it! I'm gonna be working at the FD all day that day. Oh well, youtube is my friend! I will hide in the bathroom with my phone for 22 minutes and watch it while the guys clean the trucks or something.
Why'd they use a piece of fanart for the show image on the listing?~Buddy Vox
@bronydashSomeponies just need to realize that Luna is not their property and should try and not take fanon too seriously.I'm a little worried though that we'll get a a group of angry ponies who thing they know how Luna 'should be' and 'should act'.... I just hope I'm wrong though and enjoy every last bit of Luna that we get like I sure know I'll be doing!
Outstanding!Although I worry that some fans may be disappointed if she doesn't conform to their fanon.
I got a feeling that this episode is gonna be the MOST watched episode...ever.
wait wut did i miss. i think i feinted from this AWESOME news.
Counting. Down. The Seconds.http://gig-mendecil.deviantart.com/art/Equestria-Daily-Luna-Timer-261086474
Now is the time to celebrate Luna's return.Also we should celebrate it being a Halloween Episode. I hope all the Mane 6 are there in Costume, as well as the Crusaders. Twilight Sparkle should be a Dracula-like Vampire (The joke is too obvious to refuse people). Pinkie will have something hilarious. Fluttershy will be a tree, Scootaloo will be some form of Flightless Bird and someone will be dressed up as Nightmare Moon. That's my predictions at least. I hope all the characters will be in costume for this Macabre of nights.
Ugh thats so stupid, Luna is horrible.She has so many fans for having 2 seconds of screen time and 3 lines!
fingers crossed for Trolluna :D
AAWWWW YEEEEEAHHHHH!!!I'm not only excited because of Luna, I'm also excited because it's a Halloween episode. I've wanted a Halloween episode ever since I got into the show.
Yay! Now we just have to hope she becomes a reoccurring character.
I came Moon rays
Wait... 10:00 AM? It's an hour later than the previous episode premieres... Which themselves were an hour later than the usual time MLP is on!Weird...
10 a.m? Someone explain :x
Luna becomes cannon!!!The only way the episode could be cooler would be if there were a song... say a Luna / Twilight duet?
My happiness meter broke from seeing this so all I can say is this makes me happy.
My god, the month just started and it wont show untill the end of october??? FUUUUU-
Ah, well that's nice. I look forward to enjoying that.>.> <.<...oh who am I kidding. Yes! Yes yes yes yesyesyesyesyesyesyesLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLuna! LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON! YEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAW!
I'm afraid that my hopes will be crushed!
If anypony's interested, the 22nd of October will have a waning crescent moon. If I'm reading this calendar right, full on 12th and new on 26th.
Now we'll have enough Luna footage to make a proper PMV.
I'm so excited, I feel like I could explode! Twice! Heck, I'll buy this on iTunes!
If anyone's more upset about new canon Luna destroying fanon Luna's image than the awesome opportunity to have 22 minutes of new material to base many, many, MANY new fanfics off of, then I think they may need to re-examine their priorities.I for one think it'll be pretty close to what we know, but either way considering how well they handled Discord and season 2 so far, I'm okay with whatever they do. In fact, I enjoy being surprised by what they come up with; who needs more of what we already have tons of?
Oh dear. Watch this be the only time we see Luna again. Not to mention the issue of her personality. Oh dear.
THIS HAPPENS ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!!
OOOO I want see now!! awesome I love this program
Luna fanon is no different than every shipping fic.
@Stargazerme I plan to gleefully laugh at all the idiots who yell and cry about their fanfics being ruined.it's gonna be great.
That picture they used, from Elements of Harmony, makes Celestia look like she's eclipsed.We already have a clue to her personality.She has ... an issue with self-image. She wants to be accepted, but she feels everypony hates and fears her. She wants to be able to be loved by everypony and return to her original life.She may or may not have gotten over her inferiority complex, though.
Watch, Luna will be in the new intro.
@Pinkie PieI DO NOT HAVE AN INFERIORITY COMPLEX!
I would cheer, if I didn't already know. lol But yay anyway! :P
So I guess that secret source of Seth's is turning out to be pretty reliable, huh . . .Also, I've said it before but anyone who rages over the loss of their fake Luna because of the real Luna's return is a selfish, selfish pony. Real show >>>>...>>>> fanfics imho . . .
Heeeeell Yes! I look forward to see how they portray the REAL Luna. Let's see how off (or right on) the fan portrayals are!
I find it likely that Luna will have to be a contrast to her sister's confident, outgoing, witty style - so she's relatively likely to be at least *something* like the bookish, retiring introvert that so many fics seem to imply. Of course, yeah, with some of the crazy curve balls we've seen already, who knows?Also, as to the above comments about a "halloween" episode...oh if only!It's a Halloween ANALOGUE episode! A scary holiday in Equestria, but with a different name! That screwed up a fic I was writing SO. VERY. HARD. >_<
This is why we CAN have nice things.
MY TORSO HAS BEEN PREPARED
L LU UN NA A! !I wonder what it's gonna be about
@Dire Birdbrainif by selfish you mean fanon obbessed idiots who should get the hell out of the fandom, then yeah.
I have a strange feeling that there might be a Rick Roll reference in that episode for some reason.
LUNA I WUB WOO! /)^3^(\ <3
YESSSS!!!!To quote somepony else on the rumor thread: THERE IS NOT ENOUGH YES TO DESCRIBE THE AMOUNT OF YES I AM FEELING RIGHT NOW!!!And we can finally figure out what she REALLY is like! These fanfics are great, but imo it's not the same as seeing her personality cannonized!I'm gonna bet on playful, slightly shy/nervous, and mischievous. I somehow doubt she'll be very remorseful/reflective though, that sort of stuff is more common in anime.Hope she's accepted!
but... AH WANT IT NOAW
I wonder, after the episode airs, how many people are going to be *RAGING* about how *THEY RUINED LUNA FOREVER!!! OMYGAW!!!*
THE AMOUNT OF YES AND AWESOMEIT IS INDESCRIBABLEIT COURSES THROUGH MY VEINS LIKE LIQUID GOLDCan't wait. ^^
Stupid spaces between my keys. This news makes me so happy... keyboard ruining happy. That's bad thing when your keyboard is custom!
LUUUUNNNNAAAAAAA~I hope the producers realize the expectations everyone has on Luna...
you know what's this calls for?
Yes I'm happy and I want her to appear more often :D
and so the wait for October the 22nd begins
@Vabla...that there shouldn't be any expectations, because she has no canon personality? :)
I'm be afraid to hang around TV Tropes Wild Mass Guessing section, mostly because of all the humongous possibilities being shared there. I think everything can happen. Having a ton of expectations is like having no expectations, so I am still hyped up but also protected from possible dissapointments.
@ssendasPlease don't let it be banishment… Please don't let it be banishment… Please don't let it be banishment…
@ssendas A PARTY!
@ssendas A PARTY ! .... On the moon.
Now I'll finally know if she likes bananas.
@quesoesbueno59On Canada's east coast. We're one hour ahead, Atlantic time it's called. And I believe thats GMT -4?
THIS MAKES ME HAPPY IN WAYS I CAN'T UNDERSTAND!I'm happier than a woman ought to be!(Yes, I'm watching 90s Are All That on TeenNick.)Seriously, no one can comprehend the joy I feel right at this very moment. Except, perhaps, for fellow fans...o.o
22 October? my BIRTHDAY is now 20% cooler!!! yay~
@All those with b-days on Oct. 22- Me too! My birthday is gonna be awesome this year! A Halloween party at my (friend's) church, and now this! Awesome! I love Luna, she's so cute! Best. Birthday. Ever. ~Yay!
Darn it! That's the day after the Apocalypse.
