WANT TO BE A MOON PONY?
Now you can! Luna’s invitation to become a moon pony is open to any pony who wants it, regardless of breed, criminal history or disposition. But you should think hard before you decide to take on this change in lifestyle; The night has a lot to offer, but the warmth and brilliance of a noon-day sun just isn’t one of them.
WHAT BEING A MOON PONY DOES:
The transformation will change your iris and pupil color to chrome, and allow you to see clearly in the dark. Bright daylight will hurt your eyes a bit, and most moon ponies who stay up ‘late’ (ie: into the daylight hours) wear eye protection to cut the glare.
Your internal clock will flop, making you feel naturally inclined to be active at night and asleep during the day.
Your patron Princess will be Luna, instead of Celestia. You know her, shes the one who watched you masturbate every night through the window when your parents were asleep. see? its like you’re friends already!
Your first child will also be a moon pony. if you’re running a story where your character is planning on makin’ fillies, the first one automatically inherits the trait. after that, you can decide if any future fillies get it.
ON SOME OCCASIONS, the transformation may change the color of your fur or mane. You can think of it as an opportunity to re-color your character if you’d like to, but haven’t had an excuse. This part is up to you, its generally considered to be a fluke of the process and doesn’t happen to everypony.
WHAT BEING A MOON PONY DOES NOT DO:
Being a moon pony does NOT grant you new magical, night-themed abilities. you’re welcome to get those on your own of course, but the procedure doesn’t supply them. Moreover, it does NOT give you a magically animated tail hand. there was some confusion on this part due to Cashmere, but that hand came from his own come-to-life magic. As a rule, being a moon pony does not effect your natural talents in any way.
Being a moon pony does NOT turn you into a brooding sulking dark furred creature of the night. I’m currently using the moon pony situation as a plot device to run a story, but the story is an EXCEPTION to the RULE. Most stories are, when you think about it. Being a moon pony is not reserved for the monochromatic or depressed, and you shouldn’t feel that becoming one will make your character any less cheerful.
Lastly, being a moon pony does NOT mean you are injured by sunlight, any more than a normal pony is injured by staying up late. You’re not a vampire, you’re just nocturnal.
READY TO MAKE THE CHANGE? HERE’S WHAT YOU DO.
I’ve attached two pictures to this post, one with lighting effects and one without. if you’d like to use your own lighting effects or just don’t like how mine look, pick the blank one. otherwise, go with the magic-y one and drop a picture of your character into the glow. Use any picture you’d like, pony creator will work fine if its what you have, and post it up on your blog! that’s all there is to it! Oh, and send me a message letting me know when you’ve posted it, I’d love to see.
After that, you’ve officially been moon ponied! work it into your own story or future pictures of yourself, have fun with it. I recommend you consider carefully if its something you want. its not irreversible, this isn’t a trap, if you decide later you want to go back to the sun, then go for it. but it makes things a bit more fun for everyone when you stick to your choices and any consequences they may have.
Thats it! have fun folks!
this is a moon pony template. stick a picture of yourself on it if you want to be a moon pony and post it up.
I woke up after sunset today, or at least what passes for sunset since the fog rolled in. It mostly consists of a dark, ugly sky transitioning into a dark, starry sky. If Cashmere’s plan all boils down to giving ponies a better reason to forsake daytime for nighttime, he’s doing a fine job. The timing was fortuitous at least, because I knew where I could find Princess Luna. In the Moon room, performing the Moon pony transformation ceremony, as she has been for several weeks now.
I’d never seen the ceremony personally before. I know several moon ponies, but only Cashmere was a close friend who’s transformation I would’ve attended, and his was done in private, being the prototype and all. The process has been perfected now, and I imagine Princess Luna could batch-effect a large number of volunteers at once were she so inclined.
But Princess Luna has insisted since day one that every transformation be individual and personal, to help ease the transition. Cashmere told me, when his was finished, that the process hadn’t been painful, but there was a period of marked loneliness in the middle of it. There’s a point, he’d said, where all the sunlight leaves your body and you’re left waiting like an empty vessel for the moonlight to take its place. “It lasts all of a second or two,” he told me, “just long enough for eternity to creep by”.
There’s a frown on my face as I’m writing this, and I cant help but feel guilty at the reason behind it. There’s a part of me, however muted, that is infuriated that the Moon pony transformations are still happening despite Cashmere’s current situation. I shouldn’t be upset, I know. He volunteered, and he was aware things could go wrong. He was eager at the chance! He wanted to be the first in a long line toward equality and understanding. The best intentions, they say. The Princess adapted her technique after him, and there have been no problems with any moon ponies since. They’re happy, they’re excited, and Equestria’s society is slowly but surely extending deep into the nighttime hours. One mistake in testing is hardly a reason to scrap a good idea.
But I’m still pissed off.
victim volunteer was a unicorn named Prima Victoria, who apparently came from a very long line of Princess Luna’s guards stemming back to the pre-banishment days. A thousand years is a long time to keep track of who you’re guarding when the pony you’re guarding is, well, on the moon, but I think the pride and sense of duty remained. She seemed all too eager to make up for their lapse during Luna’s absence by stepping up for this procedure, and her newly chromed eyes now reflect the night sky with the best of ‘em. I’d be more excited for her, but Equestria isn’t the only thing with a dark cloud hanging over its head these days.
