Embrace the Night, Twilight Sparkle by Adalbertus Embrace the Night, Twilight Sparkle by Adalbertus
Here it is, my 200th deviation!
And it took me almost a week to do for some reason... mostly because of Supreme Commander =P
So... a story behind this picture? It's chronologically the first of my vampire ponies, Luna turning Twilight into a vampire. How did that happen? Well, it was obviously a trap :D Why Luna is a vampire? Lets just say that being a princess of the night has it's... additional perks.

Next picture of the series: [link]

Edit: added this little piece. thanks to ~Shaleclaw for making it readable :)

This is not what dying should feel like!

The thought surprised Twilight. Of the hundreds of thoughts racing through her mind as her body was kissed by the cold embrace of death, this one had materialized suddenly and fought its way to the forefront. That single thought was now an anchor of her panicking mind.

The cold stone floor and gentle breeze in her coat, even wetness of her own tears and the burning pain from the open wound on her neck became distant, almost irrelevant in her rapidly collapsing universe. She could hear her rapid, shallow breaths and the desperate pounding of her heart as her body fought a losing battle to supply her brain with oxygen and preserve the last sparks of the life within her. Yet here she was, thinking how absurd this situation turned out to be—especially how her last words were 'yes, I trust you' spoken moments before a set of incredibly sharp teeth sank into her neck. It may have actually been rather funny if it wasn't for that fact that she now lay bleeding to death on the stone floor of a ruined castle that nopony ever visited; alone, save for the pony she had believed she could trust. The pony who was the perpetrator of the slow and agonizing death she was now experiencing.

She could not see Luna and she was physically unable to turn her head to face her. She fought to speak, to voice the single unspoken question to the Princess of the Night that her dying mind desperately sought to know the answer to: why? Why did she betray her? Why was she now lying here dying?

Another heartbeat passed and another burning breath filled her lungs.

More than anything, Twilight simply wanted to understand what happened. How is this supposed to save Equestria and her friends? She remembered the vision; she would die anyway in a pointless struggle to save other ponies. How exactly was killing her now going to change that?

Unless... It wasn't the dying part?

"Embrace the night, Twilight Sparkle" the soft, yet commanding voice of Princess Luna broke through the haze that almost completely enveloped Twilight's mind. "Join me, and become strong enough to save your friends and all of us!"

Twilight strained to hear another heartbeat. It never came.

Cóż to moja pierwsza krytyka ale postaram się naposać najlepiej jak potrafię.

Naprawdę jestem pod wrażeniem techniki jaką namalowałeś swoją pracę. Naprawdę doskonale oddane światło padające przez okna.
Muszę powiedzieć też ,że anatomia kucyków jest bardzo dobra. Cienie na kucykach sprawiają wrażenie spójnej całości ,a nie czegoś wyrwanego z innego świata.
Krew na szyi Twilight wyglądą naprawdę realistycznie jak wyciekające powoli szkarłatne krople.
To co też rzuciło mi się w oczy to znaczek Twilight jest jakby to ująć naklejony na ciało tzn. jest zaokrąglony , dopasowany do ułożenia nogi ,a nie jak na rysunkach niektórych , pokazany od przodu.
Grzywa Luny z kolei sprawia wrażenie gwieździstego nieba nocą i wygląda to wspaniale. Ma też takie niesamowite świdrujące spojrzenie wampira.
Wnętrze komnaty jest ciemne i mroczne co moim zdaniem pasuje do klimatu rysunku. Osobiście bardzo też podoba mi się przejście kolorów na szybach.Takie piękne kolory nocy.

Jedyna tylko rzecz ,która wydaje mi się ,że tu przeszkadza to takie dziwnie małe skrzydła Luny. Domyślam sie ,że są złożone ale nie sprawiają nieco tego wrażenia. Według mnie Luna ma też nieco za mało przerażający wygląd jak na wampira.

Pozdrawiam i mam nadzieję ,że pomogłam.

The plot of the story is based around vampires,which is used commonly,but never wears out and I'm hoping to see more storyline in the future,it's an epic idea and deserves more art as soon as possible.(NOTE:as much as I like zombies,I'm getting sick of them being the most talked about,I know it's not my place to decide on what you should draw,but I beg you not to include them for any other art,try mutants they're pretty awsome,thanks) and if you just so happen to be making comics on the subject and not just pictures I say go for it,the story has alot of potential and needs a title for itself,something like:Dead Moon Chronicles or The Nightmare Curse,etc,etc,you decide,anyway I wish you luck,what your writing just might be the thing we was looking for in a story. 10/10

Oh come on, it's not that bad, it's actually really cute :D
And why would Vinyl scare you after it? I mean, she's all loving, caring and adorable in her concerns :)
As for Luna... well, I agree that the story didn't put her in the best light, but she didn't have all that much to do in that fanfic and her role almost got reduced to that of  mafia boss at some point... still, a pretty cool fanfic :D

She's a bloodthirsty monster that Vinyl, almost killing poor Silver Star and that janitor, she and her kind want to exterminate every non vampire pony there is. How is that cute and adorable.

Well, her relationship with Octavia is cute :)
And it may be the fact that I read the story long time ago, but I think vampires and other creatures of the night don't really want to exterminate anything... I mean, it doesn't even make any sense for vampires, they need food =P

I just think vamp ponies are racist towards non vampire ponies, I also think they should stay away from and not mess with regular ponies.

In what way is that racist thing manifest? I don't remember anything like that from the story :| 

Also, they can't stay away from normal ponies, they need normal ponies to survive... you know, fo food.

That's why Silver Streak is the good pony.
