This is a piece I made for FimFlamFilosophy's "Mentally Advanced" Abridged series. It will be featured in episode 8 of the series. [link] For the context of what's actually happening in this picture, watch episode 5: [link]
No, this is just between the two of them. MA!Celestia tries to send MA!Twilight to wear her down, but Celestia effortlessly shunts her aside.
You know how it would go. Over the din of battle, they'd be dissecting each other and their approaches to ruling; MA!Celestia insisting that Celestia's kindness is a weakness, that she herself is all-powerful and doesn't need anypony for nuthin', and Celestia insisting that MA!Celestia can only inspire fear from her subjects, and that her inability to inspire true loyalty will be her downfall. And in the end, it is. Celestia has ultimately gained the upper hoof, and MA!Celestia, in desperation, demands MA!Twilight power her up so she can grind Celestia under her heel.
Now that the petty, vindictive, spiteful, and above all else pure fucking evil god-empress, the one who cultivated her into the alcoholic emotional cripple she is today and enjoyed every moment of breaking that terrified little girl's fragile psyche, is completely at her mercy... can you imagine what MA!Twilight does?
"Twoiloight Spahkle... yew ingrate! Yew... would'a been nut'in' widdout me! I practic'ly... no... I raised yew! ... Ev'rythin's gettin' dahk..." "... That was for my puppy. And Mrs. Buzzy. And everyone who you did horrible evil, shit to, just because you were in charge, and you could get away with it, you BITCH!" *MA!Twilight breaks down sobbing*
