well, just read the newest one and; well, it kind of just seemed jumbled.
So, they don't really explain that Luna can turn others into shadow beings, she just does (i'll assume it just meant to be expected as "she's possessed by the nightmare force! she can do that!). Alright, that makes the entire first half seem very pointless (Why the heck do you befriend somebody to trick them into teaching you if you can just mind rape them into being your slave?).
Next up, the whole "Dear friend" bit. I guess that is supposed to mean that Dorian had contacted Celestia during the fight or something? because with the braids after the fight I kind of figure that's what meant. But it really doesn't make any sense, since there's no break during the fight, and we're supposed to assume that Celestia and Dorian are old friends?
next up: Celestia talking to Nightmare moon/luna like she's a completely, 100% solely different entity that is not luna in any way shape or form. Nope, Nope nope nope. Sorry there, going home here.
I know I probably sound pretty whiny here, but that's a deal breaker. When you change Nightmare moon from being Luna being corrupted by her evil to just another being entirely (Like how Celestia was talking), you've kind of crossed the line for me.
I know I've always said I've been kind of OK with the nightmare force for Luna, but I assumed that luna still was, well, luna during her nightmare moon phase: given her dialogue when she first met the nyx (Talking about the ponies not appreciating night) and her dialogue in both S1 and S3, it just doesn't make sense to have her be just 100% this other entity holding Luna prisoner.
Bleh, not good. Not good at all :(
I'm really starting to suspect that making these all 1 issue long things was a big mistake. This one could have done with being a two parter, as could the Tirek one. They feel rushed, and this one even outright says "its not finished" with its teaser ending.
