History and Details:
<p>Moon Dancer is a social recluse, living alone in a dilapidated Canterlot house and focusing only on her studies. As a filly, she was friends with Twilight Sparkle.

She became heartbroken and withdrawn, rejecting friendship altogether.</p>

<p><strong>Detailed History:</strong> Moondancer was an asocial recluse, living alone in a dilapidated Canterlot house and focusing only on her studies. As a filly, she was friends with Twilight Sparkle, and both attended Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns together. After Twilight failed to show up to the party Moondancer had thrown thrown for her friends, she became heartbroken and withdrawn, rejecting friendship altogether. Twilight approached Moondancer as a potential friend years later, though she ultimately snubbed the effort. After being lured to a party reminiscent of the one she had thrown, Moondancer vented her pent-up frustrations at Twilight. Twilight apologized for the hurt she caused, and Moondancer cames to accept friendship once more, abeit to a limited degree.</p>
<p>Within the EEA timeline, Moondancer eventually came into a circle of friends composed of many in the Lunar Guard and their extended friends. She is most close to Alona, Wrought Alloy, Hypnotiq, Rust, Shank, Dark Star, Trent, and several others. Her first real romantic attraction was to a kirin mare named Selter, who she remains with to this day. The other great love of her life is Trixie Lullamoon, who she bonded with after a visit to Club Abyss. Moondancer has intense feelings for both mares, and balancing her love life in a way that is fair to all involved remains one of her greatest challenges. Though her time, she has had several other pony lovers, male and female. She has managed to remain friends with all of them, even if no longer sharing intimacy.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Moondancer has participated with Wrought Alloy in her ongoing blood feude with another mare of Wrought's clan named Gold. She has assisted the Lunar Guard on several missions, and assisted other ponies by going out into the field on various adventures that have had her encountering changelings, diamond dogs, golems, and other nasties. While she is capable in the field, she prefers to leave the adventuring to others. On rare ocassions, Moondancer has even DJ'd at Club Abyss, playing syth-pop and other nerdy music. She is presently most focused on helping Selter rebuild her book shop after a fire.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Moondancer also makes money performing magical body modifications. Some have been medically beneficial, such as creating a magical item to help compensate for Selter's cracked horn. Others have been purely cosmetic, such as granting mare anatomical features of stallions, and vice versa. She is known for both her skill, and discreation, in such magic.<br /><br /><strong>Study of Alternate Universes:&nbsp;</strong>Moondancer has studied the concept of the multiverse and is aware of many alternate realities, having been to several of them herself. Truth to tell, she's not fond of any of them.&nbsp;</p>

<p>In all of her studies of other realities, Moondancer is most troubled by her alternate-reality self from the Noctis Universe (see below). Discovering that your counterpart in another reality is both an alicorn and an evil terror whose wickedness trumps that of Nightmare Moon can be a sobering thing. She regards her alternate self as both a near-goddess, and an unholy abomination to be veiwed with equal parts awe and fear. Moondancer and Noctis Moondancer have had several encounters which have chilled Moondancer to the bone.</p>
<h1>Noctis Universe:</h1>
<p>Noctis is an alternate canon universe in which Nightmare Moon returned and was not defeated. Moondancer, not Twilight Sparkle, was sent to Ponyville for the Summer Sun Celebration, and failed to stop Nightmare's return, leading to the banishment of Celestia, and a host of other bad consequences. The details below apply exclusively to that universe.</p>
<p><img style="max-width: 100%; max-height: 100%;" src="download/file.php?id=1849" alt="" /></p>
<p><strong>Personality:</strong>&nbsp;Moondancer is abrasive, abusive, mercurial, and ruthlessly pragmatic. She's not afraid of anything save Nightmare Moon herself, and the wrath of her Queen. Failure, perhaps, is her one true fear, because faliure is the consequence that brings about all other fears. She is possessive, focused, quick to anger, quick to punish, and without mercy.<br /><br /><strong>Backstory:</strong>&nbsp;The test at Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns was something of a red herring. According to legend, the pony who successfully opened a dragon egg would be destined to become a princess, and so Celestia passed the egg by as many unicorns as possible. Obviously, failing to hatch the egg could not disqualify one from entering the school, or everypony in it would have a baby dragon of their own. No, it was a test of power and character. Twilight Sparkle's brute-force attempt to open the egg, without the magical surge caused by Rainbow Dash produced a less than spectacular result, preventing the young filly from opening the egg, earning her cutie mark, or entering the school at all.&nbsp;<br /><br />While Moondancer was not successful in opening the egg either, her various attempts to do so demonstrated her resolve, knowledge, and magical potential. With Sunset Shimmer having already failed Celestia, and no Twilight Sparkle to mentor, Moondancer became the next best alternative to Twilight Sparkle as the prime timeline would know her. Thus, it was Moondancer who wound up as Celestia's personal student after distinguishing herself in her first years at school. Consequently, it was Moondancer who was sent to Ponyville to prepare for the Summer Sun Celebration with the order to "make some friends". Like Twilight, Moondancer too was worried about the coming of Nightmare Moon, and more focused on her return than on making friends. Stubborn and focused, Moondancer did become acquainted with many of the same ponies, but failed to build the kind of connections necessary to insure the bonds of friendship formed deeply and quickly.<br /><br />After the return of Nightmare Moon, Moondancer went to the Castle of the Two sisters, alone, to face down Nightmare Moon, and found herself unable to summon the Elements of Harmony, or mount any effective resistance to Nightmare Moon. Nightmare Moon, however, had plans for Moondancer. Being Celestia's apprentice, Moondancer became the vehicle for Nightmare Moon's revenge against her sister. Moondancer was captured by Nightmare Moon, and subjected to all manner of humiliations and tortures, some of them quite fiendishly clever.&nbsp;<br /><br />Nightmare Moon's first actions with Moondancer were not punishment, but reward. In a very public ceremony, Moondancer (under magical duress) was forced to accept an award from the new Queen for her loyalty and devotion. Moondancer's attempts to stop Nightmare Moon were re-framed as the acts of a loyalist. The story was easily accepted given her name, her cutie mark, and the public's need to blame somepony for their lot in life. Moondancer was always easy to dislike, and even easier to hate. This was further compounded by titles and rank, public accolade, all designed to alienate Moondancer from anypony who might have otherwise rallied behind her attempts to liberate Celestia. In very short order, Nightmare Moon released Moondancer knowing the only safe haven for the pony would be among Nightmare Moon's own loyalists. Contempt for the young mare came from every quarter, and friends and family alike turned on her. Rejected and alone, Moondancer found the only sanctuary she had was in the court of her greatest enemy.<br /><br />Nightmare Moon offered Moondancer the role of apprentice, which she was eventually forced to accept, though she still plotted against the new Queen. Well aware of this, Nightmare Moon's tutelage was harsh and unforgiving. Failure was met with cruel punishments, and success always came with rewards that further alienated her from normal ponies. In time, Moondancer simply stopped resisting the role that was crafted for her. If the public hated her, she would give them reason to hate her. If everyone thought she was evil, she would be. If she was supposed to be cruel, she'd been taught many potent lessons on how to be cruel. In time, Moondancer became exactly what eveypony always assumed she was. Her loyalty and status eventually resulted in her ascension to becoming an alicorn, though in a limited fashion. Never one to grant someone powers that could rival her own, Nightmare Moon arranged for a kind of limited alicorn-hood for Moondancer. She was granted wings, and greater power, though her level of power was capped to prevent her from becoming a real threat to Nightmare Moon. Nightmare Moon, however, did promise that Moondancer would be her true heir on the day she figured out how to break past that limitation.</p>
