Hello Viewers, how has it been? So, as I promised on my last posting that I was going to explain my motivation on working on the Lunar Eclipse Saga. Well, I want to write this type of story for a while, but I didn’t imagine that it would be in a form that it is now. I wanted to start a certain controversy between both the protagonist (Lady Maya Doi) and the antagonists (Princess Luna), and have the viewers (yourself) determine who is right or wrong despite have a similar tragic past that ended up defining who they are right now. That’s the initial motivation.
What I really want to do in this story arc is to create a Psychological Thriller. Since, the two characters has a similar history and regrets in their life, I want to find out how each of them cope with the trauma. With Lady Maya, the time she was reborn as a human till Princess Celestia reveals the truth about who she really is, she bears the burden of the Memories of The Demon King Axel Doi and the horrific atrocities that he bestow upon the world for is ultimate conquest of ruling the world. The memories and the consequences by Axel’s actions was so painful that Maya was going to end her own life until a little Pegasus named Fluttershy stopped her and befriended her. After that encounter Lady Maya decided to use that awful history to make admins for what Axel did and do her best to make the world around her a better place. As a result she gained close friends from the town she reside to and even closer lovers that absolutely adores her for better or worse.
Princess Luna almost shares the same history but her approach in coping with her trauma is different. Over a thousand years ago, Princess Luna suffers from a deep depression because of her loneliness as The Moon Goddess of Equestria. Every night Princess Luna’s depression worsen as she watches over her subjects and not able to interact with her subject like her elder sister Princess Celestia can. Knowing that to be the case, The Sun Goddess went to the far east to ask then The Deity of Passion Lady Maya Matsuti to befriend her sister and become her companion as she watches over her subject at night. Maya agrees to Celestia’s request and visits Luna to keep her company. Over a century, their platonic friendship grew into something more, and seeing how their affection for each other grew, Princess Celestia collaborate with Lady Maya’s mother and create a sacred matrimony celebration to not only recognize the special bond between Maya and Luna, but to join their two nations together create a new element of harmony “The Element of Passion.” However; the few days before the ceremony was supposed to take place. A misunderstanding lead Princess Luna completely distrust and turn her into Nightmare Moon, her demonic form. Nightmare Moon was responsible for event called Walpurgis Night, where one third of the population of Equestria suffered from a sever psychosis do to horrific nightmares which led to some of the victims to take their own lives to escape from their nightmares. Nightmare Moon also nearly killed her betrothed before Princess Celestia banished her to the Moon. This event led all of Equestrian citizens and some of Lady Maya followers’ spirits manifest in their pony counterpart, and for a thousand years, Princess Luna sat on the moon crying over the people and her fiancé whom she loves for losing control and harming them.
Sorry for the long summery but it’s very important to retell each of the main characters history so you can understand each of their motive and why that round up on where that at in this moment of the story. While Maya Doi accept Axel’s past and try to make the better of the saturation she’s in now, Princess Luna has a more difficult time accepting what happen in that day and it doesn’t help that she believes that the demon who took her former fiancé away now possess her body which led her to haunt Maya’s dream with her past being banished on the moon, making Maya herself as a scapegoat as a replace for her atonement. (Or the irony.) As a reaction towards that decision, Lady Maya Doi investigates her own past only to have both of their history being pulled out of the surface by Celestia.
As you can see, each of them has a history that is slimily their own but the way that cope with it led them to end fighting against each other. That’s a major part of this project. I still have some other things about this story that most people may or may not catch on. I personally not do one that deals with simplicity. I purposely made metaphors and allegories in this this story and the one I’m going to do. It really based on how you see this story. Some will just enjoy the story for what it is, some readers, would look at it as something deep when it comes to personal beliefs, and their others that will find this and my intermission summary pretentious and ignore the story just as that. Which all of that is fine, I personally like to see this project more of a Social Experiment, where I can see what other people think up about this and what would they do in their personal opinion if they were in the situation like this.
Well this all I have to say about this story Arc. Of course I’m not done yet. I have two more Acts of this story I want to write and trust me. Each one of them will be more existing then the last. Thank you everyone that read and support my little project. I be sure to begin with Act II at the end of the month until then.
