Fear not the Light by Lopoddity Fear not the Light by Lopoddity
"Mama..." Artemis whimpered, cowering from the harsh sunlight. "Bright..."

"Shh. Be still, child." Luna cooed, shielding her foal with a gentle wing. "It is true, we are creatures of the night, you and I. But daylight is my sister's domain, and as such, we've nothing to fear from it."

Artemis wasn't placated, and retreated further under their mother.

"Oh, come now." Luna smiled. "You are my child, heir to shadow and nightmare alike. You're not scared of a happy, innocent little sunbeam, are you?"

At the teasing, Artemis fluffed up in indignation, giving a displeased chirp. In an instant, the foal had dashed out from under Luna's legs, and stood boldly out in the sunlight, head held high.

"Not scared!" Artemis' little muzzle was scrunched up, still insulted that their mother could be so callous as to call them scared of anything. Artemis stomped the grass with their tiny hoof. Not only would they endure the discomfort of daylight, they would conquer it.

"Of course not." Luna smiled indulgently at her child, before nudging Artemis away from their tiny declaration of war on all sunlit grass with her wing. "Come, little one. You still have so much to see of the waking world."

this drawing originally had a background but i couldn't make a sunny blue sky work with Luna and Artemis' blue color palettes, seriously there was so much BLUE

Luna takes her babbu Artemis out on their first outing during the day since Artie was born
Artemis is mostly nocturnal and doesn't like being out/awake during daylight hours but will put up with it to preserve their pride. They also sunburn kinda easily, especially on their sensitive widdle snout. This isn't a fact scary Artemis wants ponies to know about

I seriously love Artemis.  Luna is best pony, of course, but Artemis is sooo amazingly cool.

Sombra is definitely the father if you think, because the mane is dark dark blue fading into white and she doesn't look all friendly like luna so of course Sombra would be the father, also because Luna has a dark side, Nightmare Moon and Sombra experienced her as Nightmare Moon. So he may like her just because of her evil side.
