There are astonishingly and frustratingly few scenes of Celestia interacting with the other members of the Mane Six one-on-one. This was one of them, from Season Eight.

More cyberpunk ponies, you say? Well, we've got a doozy of an episode of Shadowtrot today!

Which episode is it from, then? I haven't watched the later seasons, but I'd like to see the original scene.

Season 8 Episode 7 "Horse Play"
Twilight celebrates Princess Celestia oneversary(1111) of raising the sun with a play and ask her to be the main player. It's too bad that she can't she has no stage experience.

Wait, it's been over a hundred years since season 1 episode 1?

No, I believe it would imply Celestia and Luna ruled for a hundred years or so before Luna turned into Nightmare Moon.
ANW 3rd Nov 2020, 6:06 AM edit delete reply
I wonder how you will deal with Luna not being there.
Sleep?
Fighting off other changelings elsewhere?
Taking care of another distraction?

Well, the DM explicitly said Luna's asleep at the moment, so I'm going guess that first option.

Hey, Horse Play screenshots! I liked that episode, even as someone who hated how much they seemed to want to make the Princesses less dignified in later seasons, I found that episode charming and I really liked how Celestia pulled everything together at the end. And it referenced events in the Journal of the Two Sisters, so that was a plus for lore loving me.

I do wonder how exactly the session will play out compared to the episode. I wouldn't mind a diversion giving the 6 and/or Celestia more to do.

I loved the confirmed lore in that episode. I've never been a big fan of cringe comedy, so that aspect wasn't a huge hit for me, but the lore and the genuinely moving interactions with Celestia at the beginning and end really did it for me.

I don't know about a diversion, but I am definitely curious to see what Celestia's response will be in the next page.

Cringe comedy isn't my favorite, but in that episode, it worked for me. She's just so over the top bad at acting and yet endearing at the same time.

The whole "asking for a friend" seems funnier whenever that friend in question is known to be in danger. ...dang I hope Fluttershy's player doesn't pass out from fright. :O

"Asking for a friend. Literally" got a good chuckle out of me.

Ok, I sympathize uncomfortably much with Fluttershy here.
I recently started doing some 'live RPG sessions' (or whatever you wanna call it when it's not play by post), and... Yeah, I now know I'd react much like her.
