I hope we get an episode starring the royal sisters one day. Maybe it could have a scenario like this, showing Celestia overcompensating for lost time during Luna's banishment.

Celestia: Luna, you are still my little sister, and I remember when you were a filly, you always wanted me to read this book at bedtime.

Luna: But sister, I'm a grown alicorn now.

Celestia: Luna, no attitudes tonight.

*Celestia puts a hoof on her mouth* are never to old for stories...we are magical ponies right? What is life if we loose the imagination that cars, humans, and even *takes in a deep breath* Cell phones, are gone."

princess Luna : (groaning) Uggggh, we hate being sick! WE DOTH HATE COMING DOWN WITH THE ALICORN COLD MOST GREATLY!
Celestia smile : Aw, Lulu... give the chamomile peppermint tea a chance to work. It'll calm you down.

princess Luna : I pray thee, Tia... would you read me a story like in the old days?
Celestia smile : Of course. How about The Founding of Equestria, or Star Swirl the Bearded's Magic Quest?

Clapping Pony Icon - Princess Luna : Nay, sister. Um... Ponylocks and the Three Bears? Please?

Celestia smile : (gently smiling as she picks up the book) Once upon a time in the Everfree Forest, there lived three bears...

You wipe that frown off your face right now Luna, I'd kill to have Celestia real me a bedtime story! 
OneBrokePony Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2014
Celestia has such a sweet voice that I'd think it'd be hard to turn down a story, but I guess Luna's not too interested.
Very cute pic
yttyr Featured By Owner May 6, 2014
Aww how cute. Buuuut I don't think Luna likes it anymore. Or maybe she is just sad because she can't sleep.
Anyways I love her spider plush. I want it, I need it. Its so awesome!

:iconprincesscelestiaplz: :iconsaysplz: Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away, the king and queen were blessed with a beautiful filly. And throughout the land, everypony was happy...until the sun went down and they saw that their daughter was cursed with a frightful enchantment
that took hold each and every night. Desperate, they sought the help of a fairy godmother who had them lock the young princess away in a tower, there to await the kiss...of the handsome Prince Blueblood.


:iconprincesslunaplz::iconsaysplz: Wait a minute, it says 'Prince Charming', but Blueblood crossed it out and wrote his name in it. 

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz: Ok, since that book is messed up, time to find another book!

:iconprincesslunaplz::iconsaysplz: How about this one? *gives Celestia a comic book*


:iconprincesscelestiaplz: :iconsaysplz: "Ultimatum Issues #1-#5"?

Impessive. Looks very show-accurate and the lighting and colors are so soft. Almost conveys the cuddly feel of the bed.

It's hard to accept that people get older.

But this is a beautiful picture, and it's clear that Luna really wants to say no to future stories but can't find it in her heart to say so.

:iconprincesslunaplz::iconsaysplz:Dear sister, at least let me choose the book for our bedtime reading.
:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:Alright then.
*Luna gives Celestia a book*

Err, Celestia, Luna is not a little filly anymore. She doesn't need to be read to sleep anymore. Don't take away her dear little Creepy-Crawly, though; he's her little spider-wider~!
