    2. That image makes me think it's a shipping story between Twilight and Celestia.

      You seem to have those moments a lot...

      I'm sure I'm not the onlypony who shares this skepticism... >.>

      On topic: OC tends to rub me the wrong way... This will either be really good, or really bad.

    5. I'll admit, the first two comments made me snicker.

    6. Oh, Discord. You were only out on probation and you've already ruined it.

    7. Why does Phow always seem to have rope?

    8. Hmmmmm, needs a copyeditor's touch. Also, the apostrophes are weird.

      It's okay though, I'd give it a 3/5.

    10. I was going to make a sarcastic comment about how no one was actually commenting on the story, but then I read it.

      I really enjoyed this story. Personally, I have no problem with OC's. I feel that if someone is going to write a bad OC, they would have written an established character badly even if they had gone with that. Sky Gazer filled a useful role, and did so without overshadowing the main characters of the story, nor appearing as a cardboard cutout. Twilight was perfectly in character, and adorable as always. Sure, the end was yet another repeat of the "Luna became Nightmare Moon because she was neglected" trope, but it was well written and, I thought, fit very nicely with the rest of the story.
      I'll look forward to more stories by this author.

    11. This was a fantastic story. I've got no problem with OCs, but I can't see why even someone who did have a problem with OCs would have a problem with this one - the story is not about Sky Gazer in any significant sense. It's about Twilight, Celestia, and Luna. And it's one of the best depictions I've seen of the roots of Luna and Celestia's falling out.

      Do you really think we couldn't fully seal you away?

      Fully sealing me away is possible, but i would have to "let" you.

    14. Sweet story, although I have to admit I like Molestia stories more when it comes to how Nightmare Moon was born. Meh, screw this normal tag.

    15. I thought that was a really sweet story. Thank you for sharing it!

    16. Just like the night that Luna made, this story, is perfect.

    17. Luna and discord argument/discussion going on it's funny to me

    18. There are so many fics in which Celestia ponders about Luna and the past. But this has to be one of my favourites.

    19. This story sounds like a prequel, since Twilight is still in Canterlot and they haven't heard of Luna yet. That being said, this story was fantastic. You got Twilight's characterization down pat and the OC Pony was executed well too. I'm not sure why OC Ponies tend to scare people off, but maybe that only happens when you have super powerful Mary Sues.

      Of course, the parts at the end were a little sad for me, because of crying Luna and Celestia. It's a good thing that everything is all right and Luna is back. =*(
