Never Again by Pinkanon Never Again by Pinkanon
(Yes I re-uploaded, I hated the shading)

A continuation of this [link] for Luna helping Trixie.

This is pure headcanon. I've been rolling in spoilers lately, and from what I gather Sombra might be controlling Trixie in her upcoming episode, based on that ruby necklace swag. And since I also, based on no evidence or logic, ship Luna and Sombra, the image of her defending another of his victims came to mind.

Battle rage Luna!

Oh wow... This actually looks like it could happen. It's so sad. Poor Trixie... and Luna, Get 'em!

The drawing for this is really good and You can feel the emotions in the picture. Also, you captured the battle between two very shadowy beings well. Luna vs Sombra is just a fanbrony's dream.

As for the idea that it's just head canon, it's still awesome and you should do more like this. Do an entire storyline because I think it would be epic.

Oh luna, defend Trixie and she will learn that she is not everything and more. Great and Powerful needs to be humbled once in a while.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
29 out of 31 deviants thought this was fair.

The effort put into this picture is like the storyboard to a future episode. A dramatic showdown to protect those who you care deepest about is a picture that truly writes a thousand words.

Sombra's ghastly look brings the deathly form of his own appearance. From my past experince, forming a body made strictly from a gaseous mixture is a feat for marvelous artist with outstanding vision. On a satirical note, drawing a person made of clouds who doesn't end up looking like Lumpy Space Princess is a win.

One thing did catch my eye. If memory serves me right, hatred, anger, and sadness fuel dark magic. To see Luna using "pure" magic to save Trixie gives insight on Luna's love and affection of Trixie. If that was your goal, you are truly making friendship magic.

Honestly, I would definitely want to see this battle play out in the series if and when Sombra makes his return all thanks to you.

Well Done, Pinkanon!

P.S. I am a bit out of the loop with certain pony pair-ups. The "Trixie x Luna" pair was out of my knowledge and I thank you earnestly for shedding some light on it to me.

I see that the mane 6 didnt completely destroy you Sombra when they were in the Crystal Empire. Well Luna is gonna finish the job once and for all! No other pony will ever  feel your dark touch ever again!

I like to think that Luna and Sombra had a relationship when they were kids (before Sombra somehow turned evil) and Trixie is Luna's student like Twilight is Celestia's ; )

I love this but why is there a ruby on the ground?
SkrillexxFH Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not a ruby. It's the alicorn amulet Trixie used to beat Twilight in I think the episode Magic Duel.

Awesome! I love Luna. I think Luna would look past who Trixie was, more than anything Luna knows how she feels. To try so hard to be accepted yet to turn into a Monster. To be reject by people for who you were and try so hard to fit in again. Also,

Sombra: Out of my way Luna, she belongs to me
Luna: She belongs to no pony, especially not you Sombra, I will not let you take her and corrupt her like you did me a thousand years ago
Sombra: You were week then and you are week now, Nightmare Moon was fare superior yet you chose to stay with your sister because you love her, your sentimentalism is you down fall
Luna: And your greed and lust for power is yours, I will protect all my subjects, my friends and my sister from you

I don't ship Luna and Sombra, but I have a feeling he could definitely be connected to her transformation into Nightmare Moon. I hope the show makes this canon so people can stop saying that "King Sombra does nothing special and has no backstory".

Holy burning broccoli of flaming fury, this epic pic just gave me an ideea. Tl:dr incoming. In my headcanon I always thought Sombra had a deeper relationship with the princesses and not just being overthrown and banished by them. I thought Sombra and Luna were husband and wife, their union not being a simple political one to strengthen the diplomatic ties between Equestria and the Empire but also one of true love. Having control over something as powerful as the Crystal Heart caused Sombra to slowly but firmly becoming power hungry and malevolent. Luna, who no longer recognizes the one she loved, threatens to leave and take their only daughter with her. Sombra, in a sudden moment of clarity brought forth by desperation taps into the Crystal Heart's darker side and corrupts both himself and Luna. She flies off and ends up banished. Sombra believing her to be dead goes berserk and in a swan song of lucidity hides his daughter somewhere far away where not even he hopes to find her. In my original headcanon his daughter was Skyla but thanks to your awesome pic she was now replaced by Trixie, or Beatrix Lulamoon as I've seen her being called( hmmm...Lula-MOON?). As time passed and Sombra's spell faded away Trixie awakes and tries to live out her life and adopts a boastful and arrogant demeanour to hide her fear. When the King is blasted off he starts searching for his daughter, his own flesh and blood, to aid in his return and Luna starts searching as well in hopes of protecting her ray of moonlight. And it all boils down to this moment when The Mad Father ,whose soul was burned blacker than coal by the fires of Pain , and the Loving Mother,who must sacrifice half of her soul to save her little one, clash. This picture is a family reunion. One drenched in sorrow where memories are brought back, dreams are made but lives are lost. Whose lives,you may ask? I'll leave that for forces greater to decide.

Your ideas concerning Trixie and Luna are astounding to the point where I'll be disappointed if something like this doesn't happen in the magic duel episode. It would be something if it turns out that Luna was actually a former student under Sombra and is protecting Trixie from becoming another of his victims. This would also open the possibility of Trixie becoming Luna's apprentice so that she can teach Trixie how to control magic (and dark magic) the RIGHT way. I'm rambling. Fantastic work on this btw.

I've gone so far into my own headcanon I'm sure I'll be disappointed no matter what happens lol

Impressive, my headcanon is that Sombra was once Luna's student, but wanted to know more about dark magic and was corrupted by it when he tried to learn it.

This picture is so epically shrouded in mystery.

Why is King Sombra attacking Trixie? What is that ruby next to her? Where did Luna come from?
