She may look pretty, magical and innocent, but don’t stare too much. You may just end like Spike ([link]), turned into a slave and a beast!

I decided to change things a little bit for Rarity, instead of violent like Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy (let me not start with Pinkie Pie and her Mallet of death…) I went for a more mystic and mysterious look, the kind of look no one can resist to approach and brush her mane! Not sure if it worked, after all I haven’t shown no one yet and trusting my own opinion about things is risky!

Nightmare Moon gives that feeling of influence and malice, the kind of pony who seems to be able to manipulate things quite easily! The “moonified” Rarity has inherited that from her, turning her victims into pets for Fluttershy to deal with.
I am really happy how this turned out! Not sure if I managed to get where I wanted, as I said before I haven’t shown anyone yet so I’m a bit nervous, I hope you like it! :D


By the way, any name suggestions? :3
Next step: Applejack



Rarity and Nightmare Moon belong to Hasbro and Lauren Faust, art by me!

The description makes her sound like a kelpie.

For those of you who don't know what a kelpie is, it's a monster that dwells near lakes and rivers. To catch its prey, the kelpie takes on the form of a beautiful white horse. When weary travellers pass by, they canno resist the horse, and try to pet or ride the horse. But as soon as they touch the horse, they are stuck to its skin and can't escape. The kelpie then reveals its true, monstrous form to them before galloping off into depths to devour their meal.

I'm guessing you took a bit of inspiration from this tidbit of folklore.
