Eternal Duty by Stalkerpony Eternal Duty by Stalkerpony
Princess Celestia as requested by ~KeinZantezuken

I think I could have done better with her mane, but I didn't want to do it over again xD Oh well.
I've got another idea for a drawing of her as well, so I might do that soon.


She turned out so sad though :c lol

I can sorta picture her saying something like this.

"No matter how great you are.No matter how much of a Vinyl Scratch,Photo Finish,Octavia or Spitfire,we can`t hide who we really are.We are all the same...and it will stay that way. Until the universe shall end.Were all nobody.And me...(hold tiara)...why should I be princess.(throws tiara on the ground)A horn and wings with an aurora mane dosn`t hide who I really am. Alicorn or not,rich or poor,princess or peasant,Rookie or Celestia...were all just average people living average lifes in an average world which will come to an average end.And there is nothing we can do about it.I should be the one eaten by a timbrwolf. No one would miss me.They would probably dance on my grave with glee.All I could do is watch them.The only thing I ever do is rise the sun,sit in a chair and show up to places for no reason.That`s why i envy you.Why can`t i be a normal one.There would be no difference.  People might even treat me the way i want.I don`t want to have my face all over the land.I just want to be a pony with a name.But no one would even care.No one would give a pony`s flank about me.Why...am i even alive?"

its fine. Just try and learn to fit ideas into paragraphs, usually 1 to 3 or 5 lines per thought or
'block' of text.  

Putting one or two spaces of white to space said text blocks up helps then for readers to quickly skim your posts while keeping track of what they read.

*the human eye and brain has a thing for prime numbers it seems. Shaping one's text to this format makes it look nicer along with being easier to read.

As for the 'one or two space rule', I usually put one space between main text blocks/lines, and double space between Sets of idea blocks.  IE  a given set of lines or blocks of text discuss a given idea are further separated from other sets of lines/blocks of text unrelated to them to avoid confusion.


Yeah, it takes practice and perhaps more time/effort than a 10+ line long Text_Wall but the difference in proofreading effort alone is more than worth it imho ^-^  Just takes practice.
(take for example my post here)

Aww Tia ... you're a goddess and your rise and down the sun. Plus, you're one heck of a popular pony and you'd be sorely missed by all if you'd die. So what's up with the sadness ?

You did a fine job with her mane! It looks simply beautiful. And while you seem a little down that Celestia seems sad...this pic has fueled my inspiration for a very touching scene that should fit nicely when I get to end of my Celestia story on Fimfiction. This pic teamed up with the idea of the scene and Evanescence's song "My Immortal" moves me everytime I think about it. So keep up the good work! :)

She looks so sad and tired. Must be the burden of rising the sun and the moon that affect her.

She needs hugs for raising her morale and thanking her for all her efforts.

Beautiful work.
