Season 6 Finale (part 1) by dstears Season 6 Finale (part 1) by dstears
Having acquired the other five elements, Moonrise Lensflare sets her sights on Twilight Sparkle. Only by stealing Twilight's magic, cutie mark, Element of Harmony, and pancake recipe will she be able to accomplish her ultimate goal: to be the prettiest princess in all of Equestria.

Twilight has no choice but to release her bloodline limit, risking severing her connection to the Magic of Friendship permanently. Will it be enough to stop Moonrise Lensflare's conquest? Find out next time in our exciting conclusion: Sunset's Dawn.

---------------------------------------

Uh, I guess I should explain this. egophiliac made this post (egophiliac.tumblr.com/post/115…) shortly after the season 5 premier following the pattern of villains having names which are derivatives of Twilight Sparkle. I liked her design and tried to make the situation more ridiculously over the top (without using robots this time). 117 layers later, this is the result.

Used a modified version of this texture on the map:

Is there some previous and next parts of that story? I mean as arts with description like this, comic or even fanfiction? Because it looks quite interesting. 

And I just love one detail here - presence of Sunset Shimmer. I wonder how she get here, how she were doing before she was propably defeated(ok this one detail - she was defeated - I don't like so much).

Sadly, other than the original description by egophiliac, there is no more of the Ballad of Moonrise Lensflare.

wait is this canon??? Omg if Sunset Shimmer goes back to Equestria to help fight this new enemy.... :D Yes!!!! 
As for the art piece itself, I like the tone/theme of it (for me its a refreshing sight). The perspective is pretty cool, but the composition of the shot... i kinda wish Starlight was present in the piece to fill up the static area in the middle or something. But you did but alot of time into this which is awesome! Keep up the good work.

Before the epic battle and Sunset got attacked, Twilight makes a confession to Sunset that she used to see Moonrise all the time when they were both filles. Moonrise may had strange red eyes but she loved being in Canterlot. She loved to study and of course magic. But then one day her hopes of being Celestia's pupil were crushed. When Moonrise heard that Celestia chose Twilight instead of her, that mare was not the same again. She would of been princess if she was Celestia's pupil, but she chose the dark side. She tried to reason her that someday that mare will be with Princess of the Sun but she never listened. All Twilight got was a door slammed to her face.

Moonrise at first sounds friendly, but first she tries to attack Twilight's first Starlight, but Twilight came to the rescue and told Moonrise to leave her student alone. But then a few days later, bad things start to happen, Moonrise takes all away five cutie marks from all five of Twilight's friends and Sunset gets attacked and knocked out, Twilight sees this and she has had it. If she has fought Tirek, she can fight this evil unicorn.

Let this epic battle begin.

Part 2
Eh well Starlight does something in Twilight's favor by using a potion to go back in time when Moonrise used to be an innocent older filly than Twilight before she turned into a bad crazy one and Twilight went to a anti-social bookworm after feeling betrayed from Moonrise. Will Starlight learn about this Moonrise? Do Starlight and Sunset have a chance to defeat this awful mare? Only one thing is for sure is that Moonrise Lensflare has become an evil princess after taking Twilight's and her friend's cutie marks and wants Ponyville or Equestria to suffer.

Yeah the parody song list goes on and on but yeah it is up to now Sunset and Starlight to defeat this Lensflare before she literally tries to destroy Ponyville.

Is that really a thing with Moonrise Lensflare or is it just an OC thing
Cuz i am really confused right now .-.

dstears Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2015
It's just a joke based on the sequence of antagonists that are synonyms to Twilight Sparkle.
Sunset Shimmer
Starlight Glimmer
Moonrise Lensflare

I'm pretty sure there are only 2 pictures of Moonrise Lensflare in existence, so it's not really a "thing".

Just because she has the elements, dosent mean she can use them. And what the hay is a Bloodline Limit? Sounds like something from Final Fantasy 7.

If the actual finale differs in any way from this, it will be a tremendous disappointment. :D

I wonder if the holo-table is cracked, or if that is an actual giant chasm in Equestria?

Every time i see this I'm renewedly impressed... but I keep thinking....  I think you need to crop a little off the right side.

Dfa5492de4a38acb1bcfb0edcaac0351[1] by InLucidReverie  

Also think you should remove or scrub(? like it's mostly gone) SS's cutie mark. I think it would still be clear it's her.

dstears Featured By Owner May 12, 2015
Thanks for the suggestion, I always have trouble with composition. I was trying to follow the Rule of Threes and put my characters near the 1/3rd and 2/3rd points which always leaves awkward empty space on the edges. Something I need to work on.

I was debating about whether or not to include Sunset's cutie mark. I think I justified it that Moonrise was just targeting the embodiments of the Elements so she didn't care about Sunset.

:iconinlucidreverie:
InLucidReverie Featured By Owner May 13, 2015
MY thinking for the removal of her CM is to think about it alone. Look at the piece as a whole, rather than given it's explanation.

Alone it tells it's story even without it.... but consiered that way then SS needs to be clearer- her involvement is kinda vague without the explanation.
Reply
:icondstears:
dstears Featured By Owner May 13, 2015
I suppose. Although the main purpose of her inclusion is to just ramp up the drama a few more levels. Let people fill in the blanks themselves.
