Come on, Celestia, get yourself together…
Princess Celestia, the alicorn of the Sun looks around in her room. She’s alone. As always. She combs back a lock of her long, sparkly mane with her hooves. The solar goddess lets out a careworn sigh. She decides to write a welcoming letter to the new guard. It’ll be good… It will reroute her thoughts. She has sustained heavy losses, but repelled the attack. The battle has been going on for almost a decade now. The white alicorn has earned herself a little calmness, when she can be her true self.
But deep down, Celestia knew, that the voices will be back to torment her sooner ou later.
