this picture was inspired by two things, one the Mlp Season 4 premiere when Twilight sees into the past, and sees Celestia and Nightmare moon fighting, (it just hit me how hard it must have been for Celestia to Banish her sister for so long, I have a little sister and I know I could never do that) It was powerful even in that very childish cartoon way, I don't know, it just struck me as profound.
On an artistic note I tired a bunch of new tricks on this picture, and I am very pleased with the result, (specifically the hair) it was fun! I may do one with nightmare Moon sometime in the future, as a part 2 to this picture.

Sound the Bugle Now.
Play it just for me.
As the seasons change, remember how I used to be.
Now I can't go on, I can't even start.
I've got nothing left, just an empty heart.
I'm a soldier, wounded so I must give up the fight.
There's nothing more, for me, lead me away.
Or leave me lyin' here.
Sound the Bugle now.
Tell them I don't care.
There's not a road I know, that leads to anywhere.
Without a light of fear that I will stumble in the dark.
Lay right down, decide not to go on.
Then from on high, somewhere in the distance.
There's a voice that calls Remember who you are.
If you loose yourself, your courage soon will follow.
So be strong tonight, and remember who you are.
You're a soldier, now.
Fighting in a battle.
To be free once more.
Yeah, that's worth fighting for.
