Our Real Story (Headcanon) by iLucky7 Our Real Story (Headcanon) by iLucky7
And that, little foal, is how alicorns are made ~

This is part of my headcanon about Tia and Luna. My theory is that they're actually Starswirl the Bearded's daughters. Celestia was born a unicorn, Luna was born a pegasus (because she seems to fly a lot more that Celestia, idk) and they both had different birth names. They lived in a time of strife, making it difficult for Starswirl, as he was so powerful that the civilians looked to him to control the sun and moon, as well as creating spells. He was so dedicated to his studies that he would sometimes forget to raise one of the celestial bodies, plunging the land into darkness or bright light for days at a time. All the responsibility during these hard times was making him insane, to point where others began to call him a mad scientist.
    He wasn't a always a loving father, he would often test his spells on his daughters in fits of mad rage, which initially gave him the idea to give some of his responsibilities to them. One night, during one of his fits, he trapped the two in his lab and attempted to transfer some of his powers to them, giving Tia the power of the sun and Luna the power of the moon. He didn't know what the spell would do to them, but the results surprised him. His eldest daughter's back was torn open with half-grown wings coming out. After Luna saw what happened to Celestia, she fought back and struggled. Starswirl tried to restrain her, hitting her with dark magic when he used the spell transferring on her. This is why she has the ability to take on a Nightmare form, as well as why she has those dark patches on her flanks. They ran away after that and Starswirl didn't persue them, his fit had worn off and something just snapped in him. He became cold, depressed and reclusive, dedicating his life to the study of magic.
    His daughters, meanwhile, left their town and traveled to new places, helping the ponies by learning to control the sun and moon so the days and nights came on time and there was more harmony throughout the land. They were looked at as strange at first, being tall, having such strong magic, and having both wings and horns. After ponies got to know them, they were asked to rule the land and keep space in harmony, and became known as Luna and Celestia. They agreed, wanting to do good for the land. Neither of them spoke of their past, not wanting to remember what happened. They made up stories about their past, and the public believed them. To this day, neither of them have ever mentioned their real story to anypony.

Soooo yeah...
Gawd, that blood looks so bad.
Also, the design for Tia is based on "Suffering For Your Title" by Emala Jiss.
Birth name suggestions for Tia and Lulu (and story suggestions in general) are welcome.

Putting a mature content filter on this for a bit of blood is kind of dumb... still cool though.

Yeah, and the younger part of the fanbase might not wanna see bloody appendages tear through Celie and Luna's skin. xD
