Week 47 - Depressedia by Philith Week 47 - Depressedia by Philith
Week 47 - A tenebrous pony

Celestia seems like a character that would be prone to fits of melancholy and depression. She is well over a thousand so she has watched almost every pony she ever cared for die. Also her daily routine really only requires that she raise and lower the sun, eat, sleep and wait to receive a report.

Imagine the movie Groundhogs day but it never ends.

So Celestia probably has a lot of idle time to kill which has to spent in the castle because the common ponies tend to stress and panic whenever she is around. I imagine she slides around on the floor like Sweetie Belle did in was it Sister hooves social? This would be especially funny given her huge legs.

Sights like this also explain why Rainbow Dash is unable to rustle the jimmies of any of the guards. Oh the things they must have seen.

Interesting idea (and a cute picture, in its own way). I'm not so sure I agree that with the idea that Celestia has nothing to do beyond raising the sun and waiting for reports (and eating and sleeping, obviously); ruling a country takes a lot more than that. She'll meet with advisors, make decisions, receive delegations and diplomats, hold court, judge disputes, and so on; if anything, I'd expect her to perhaps long for a quiet day with no chores every now and then. Of course, the lack of that might lead to depression and insomnia as well, and this scene might still be seen by a few a guards of the Night Shift every now and then.

Poor Princess Celestia... I'd be depressed myself if I were to be defeated by a silly insect pony. Philomena looks very cute sitting their on her bum.
