A Tribute to Luna: The Angel of Darkness by Light-of-Dusk A Tribute to Luna: The Angel of Darkness by Light-of-Dusk
A tribute to Princess Luna, the celestial queen.

Thanks to :iconrevengeoftheandroids: for allowing me to use her amazing work entitled "Moonrise of the Equinox" as a background for my poem. The great line-art was drawn by :iconweresquirrel94:. I have modified the image by lightening it slightly.

You know, this could really make a quite beautiful song. I'm thinking that if you gave permission that either I or a more talented musician could maybe do this justice. Beautiful though, definitely glad I found this.

No wai, I haven't actually remembered to give my two cents to you of these poems. :iconeheheplz:
Wonderful character pieces each one of them, telling so much in such a nice minimalistic metaphors, smooth rhymes and occasionally surprising structures. And that beautiful background/lay-out thingy, that illustrates poem so ingeniously without taking away from the reading experience, instead enhancing it.

Fun fact: tried to read this with Swallow the Sun's Cathedral Walls [link] just because of the delicious band name :D. Added some perspective if not the most fitting song, 'specially towards the end. ^^'
Big :iconfavplz: to this and Celestia poem. And Applebloom. :love:

Oh Hai! :)

Thank you so much for these wonderfully kind words! My friend, HungryChickens had made a Celestia picture, and it was actually that amazing piece that was, you could say, my poetry muse. I knew that I had to pay tribute to the Solar Empress by making use of that image. I wasn't actually planning on continuing to use artwork as the background for my poems, but after youpickmyname said that he enjoyed the series, I thought, "Hey, why not make it a series?" Hence, that's been my modus operandi ever since. :D I'm really fortunate that the artists have allowed me to use their superb works!

Oh, I love fun facts! Let's see... that's quite a good song, I find that some parts really mesh with the poem. You have an awesome ability to choose music to complement your great poetry! It's even inspired me to add some of my favourite music (see my Octavia, Vinyl poem, if that's okay with you) to my future poems.

I truly appreciate all the favourites, it means a lot!

Read it. :icongreatjobplz: Nicely more playful in style, song was a wonderful touch ('specially the first one - second went a little too dubstep to me, I'm afraid).

I should probably read Allegrezza some day. Probably.

Thanks to you! Yeah, the first one is my all-time favourite, the second one I like to listen to now and again.
Me too, I've been meaning to actually, but university has just been way too hectic. Someday, maybe. :)

Well done my friend! A quick inquiry, did you make this in light of the (possible) Luna episode?

:iconlight-of-dusk:
Light-of-Dusk Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Thank you so much! :)
Possible Luna episode? I didn't know that that was a possibility. I felt that, after my Celestia poem, the most appropriate choice was a Luna poem. Also, it didn't feel right separating the sisters.

Ah. It makes sense, and I was misinformed about the Luna episode.

I love this series. Allow me to submit it to a ridiculous amount of places to help it get noticed.

If you don't want that, simply decline.
