Ancient Ones by SilFoe Ancient Ones by SilFoe
So, some pretty awesome fanfics have made me partial to the idea that Celestia and Luna started out as earth ponies. So this is what I ended up doodling when I should've been working.

PS CS5
time: absolutely no idea

Edit: Yes, the initial inspiration came from the fanfic "Paradise" www.fimfiction.net/story/273/P…
with a heavy dose of personal theories added in. That fanfic is amazing.

So, in the context of this picture, they started out as normal, and mortal. no divine providence, no heroic lineage, no ordination from a higher power, neither BORN to rule or born to be privileged, nor were they created and given a charge no one that haven't been tested and judged should be considered WORTHY to take?

So instead, they began with NOTHING, and yet against the hardships of their world, these mortal sisters persevered the strength of their will, their love and their friendship, and with their own two hooves, they set out with meaning and purpose to steer their own destinies, fought against the evils, injustice and darkness of their world, and with wits and sweat and blood they triumphed over all obstacles, against impossible odds, and as reward for their efforts EARNED their Alicornhood?

This, in my opinion, this is the best interpretation of the Sisters ever conceived by the fandom. INSTANT HEADCANON.

Aye, what that guy said.

Have you read "Whisper Sun, Silent Moon" by any chance?

Yep, I have. I barely remember it, though.
