Battle Against Discord by Cave-Shinobi Battle Against Discord by Cave-Shinobi
Update of [link]

Ok, background added, as well as another angry pony. I'm still not too satisfied with the background, though. It feels like there's something amiss. Don't know exactly what, though. I'd like to ask all of you who check this deviation to, just in case you notice, please tell me what might be missing. Thanks in advance.

Like I said, I made this a separate deviation. Why? Well, because the changes are quite gigantic.

I guess that's all I have to say. At least for now.

Most the time I imagine or see something depicting the celestial sisters facing off against discord they are the same size that they are in the present. Here they appear to be around the proportion of normal mares and only slightly larger. It is different, interesting, and raises all kinds of fun questions and possibilities. For instance:

Was this what they looked like normally at this time or did discord make them look this way?

Was this their fully grown size and something happened later to make them so long and tall?
   - Did Luna or Celestia know, or think, they were done growing yet?

Was this an example of an encounter between the three of them from before the sisters found the elements of harmony and managed to defeat Discord?
   - how many times did that happen if this is the case?
   - How long had they know eachother?

The reason I chose this look for them was to show them as if they hadn't used the Elements nor gained any divine powers yet, so I went for the same look of the Mane6, in terms of age. Fully grown mares, with actually hair for manes instead of a cloud of celestial smoke (like Luna's mane, when she morphed back from Nightmare Moon in the pilot). Back when I was in the fandom, my headcanon was pretty much that Discord had been terrorizing Equestria for a long time (read: since shortly after their birth and until they matured. The alicorns would be an ancient race of ponies tha used to rule the land, most of which got frozen in time or turned into stone when Discord appeared) and they go on a journey to find the essences for the Elements of Harmony. After using the Elements, they ascend through their power into their current shape.

But that's just headcanon I created when I watched Season 2. We already know that they looked like their current selves, back when they faced Discord.

Nah, not quite what I'd have in mind for this.

Hope you don't mind, but I used this in a video I did. I have given you credit, though!

Don't mind at all since you credited. It would've been nice if you had asked me beforehand, but it's cool. May I see the video?

I realised when I started edited that I needed something to finish it off. I kinda just wanted to get the thing done, bluntly, but figured if it was a problem you would just tell me so. I apologize.

Sure! [link]

No need to apologize. At least you told me that you used it, which is something I rarely see :)

On the video, I really don't know if they'll ever make a flashback episode. I mean, it'd be amazing, but that seems oddly unlikely for me. If they did, though, it wouldn't be great just because we'd have more of Discord, but also due to all the world-building such episodes would inevitably have. I'm a sucker for that sort of stuff.

:D

I don't know. I mean, I am spectacle and everything, and it would be very unlikely that they did anything of that nature, but I just figured it all fits. I'm gonna release another video sometime about some more evidence I found for this that made me come to this conclusion, but overall I just thought it was a fun theory to share. Plus it would be AMAZING.
