Night Watch (:iconlulubellct:)

---

Bat-winged pegasi make up a small and enigmatic division of the Royal Guards known as the Night Guards. In anticipation of her rule over Equestria and the coming of the Eternal Night, Princess Luna - as Nightmare Moon - cast a powerful spell on her most loyal Guards, transforming them into the Night Guards. The Night Guards proved to be a competent fighting force and were granted full pardons following Nightmare Moon's banishment, forming several Houses from which all modern Night Guards are descended from.

To echo everyone else, I love the work, and I love the background story.
I've noticed that there's quite a few theories about where the batponies come from (mine was shapeshifting sylph--air elementals), and I'm interested in coming up with something that could, theoretically, combine the theories. Nothing too major, I wouldn't necessarily write a whole story about it, just a shout-out of sorts, a suggestion that some of the theories could work together within a given universe.  I'm curious how well that would work out....

I hate to be that guy, but in your description, you say, "forming several Houses *from* which all modern Night Guards are descended *from*." You have "from" written twice in one sentence; you can omit the last one. :) Sorry if you've gotten this message already. It's ok if you delete it. :)

Damn it. And I thought I was the only who thought about them like that, except for the part of the forming Houses, for me it was more like simply disappear for a while until Luna came back.

Awesome!

Um... well, as one Night Watch who's a royal guard to the creator of another (and I've had this OC as my ponysona since, well, August of last year,) good job on the picture.
