It seems all too fitting for me, an ex-theater nerd, for Discord and Tirek's team-up to start with him taking center stage before introducing his co-star with an absurd and dramatic flair...

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

The idea of Celestia's prophetic dreams was a very cool touch, restoring a bit of mythic mystique after the steady pulling back of her presentation as Equestria's glorious golden god-empress. It also makes many of her actions, past and future, take on an interesting context. How many of her seemingly inexplicable actions were spurred by her premonitions?

I definitely would have liked to see it explored later. Also kindof interesting when paired with Luna's dream powers. That said, I sort of liked the implication from the Journal of the Two Sisters book that they'd received some 'spoilers' from Time Traveling Star Swirl the Bearded even if that doesn't line up with what they eventually developed in Shadow Play.

If you ever get a chance and you haven't before, it's interesting to look up Lauren Faust's comments way back in season 1 when she was still on the show and answering fan questions on Deviantart. She seems to have had Celestia pegged as a Dumbledore type character who maybe doesn't know everything but has a very strong sense of how things are going to go, and that the Spike egg test was precisely her sensing Twilight's potential and testing her. She's also indicated that from her perspective, even Faust didn't see herself as fully understanding how Celestia was thought and operated.

As for the comic, seeing it all the various storylines get mismashed together in a unique way is interesting for me. I confess the Season 4 finale was one I wanted to "rewrite" in my head even if I enjoyed it for what it was. Also sort of weird to think about how Celestia and Tirek are being puppeteered by the same person, but of course that is the game.

Nice touch of the sister's prophetic dreams, making sense for the ones that control day and night.

Luna's face in panel three is such a cute one. That's another one of those gems when you do screen cap comics.

Today we discovered that Alicorns can learn about things in dreams, leave away the the old tea and crystal balls, and don't forget the newspaper that will become useless, nothing like a couple of nightmares to know about what is happening around
