Oho? What do we have hear?
Why it's filly MoonGlow and Princess Luna!
The one mostly insignificant detail I had since I first got MoonGlow in my head was that she and Luna were good friends. And it was nagging me in the very back of my brain to figure out how to bring it up, and I thought, "Hey, nothing says I can't make a picture of it!"
Here's the story behind this picture and how they became friends:
MoonGlow is and always was more of a night time pony and when she was little she had always wanted to see the moon be raised up close. Being the night-owl she was, MoonGlow normally slept from dawn until dusk so she could enjoy the beautiful night as long as possible. One night, she happened to wake just as Princess Luna was leaving to go to her favorite spot to raise the moon. MoonGlow couldn't help herself and trotted after Luna as quietly as she could. Being the shy filly she was, she was too nervous to approach the princess. And she was also trying to stay a good distance behind, for fear her glowing eyes and wing symbols would expose her. Nearing the top of the hill, Luna caught a glimpse of MoonGlow out of the corner of her eye. She couldn't help but look over her shoulder, surprising an unsuspecting MoonGlow. MoonGlow froze for a moment, fear clear on her face. Luna merely smiled. "Hello little filly." MoonGlow's surprise slowly faded and a small smile spread across her face. "Hello Princess Luna. I'm sorry I followed you and didn't say anything, but...I've always wanted to watch the moonrise up close." she said softly with a slight blush of embarrassment. Luna gave a look of surprise herself, but she still smiled. "May I ask why?" MoonGlow looked sheepish for a moment. "I...I've always loved the beautiful night time sky. The twinkling stars and shining Moon are true treasures." MoonGlow said, almost too softly to be heard. Luna smiled broadly. "And so I ask, may I watch you raise the moon Princess?" Luna nodded as she came to a stop at the very top of the hill. "Certainly."
From that night on in the story, MoonGlow watched Luna raise the moon nearly every night. And as the nights went on they became more and more friendly with each other and conversation became more and more until they were good friends. And to this day, MoonGlow still tries to watch Luna raise the moon as often as she can.
I know it's probably not the most original idea, but I think the story's cute.
