I was watching the whole entire thing. Princess Celestia, you really need to get out more. Luna was able to defeat Chrysalis in a battle which you couldn't have won. You seem to be always relying on Twilight and us to fix problems that you could almost likely solve on your own. Although, I understand why, because we are now in control of the Elements of Harmony because you and Celestia were no longer connected to it a thousand years ago.
-- Fans argue for if Luna can knock out Chrysalis alone for a long time. I don't think Luna can kick Chrysalis' ass without Celestia's help in the kamehameha contest during royal wedding. Because Chrysalis had the "Power of Love" during that time (stealed from Shining/Cadance). According to the settings of MLP-FiM, Brutal Force can't win "Power of Virtue" (Love, Harmony). Luna may know that, she was the most powerful NMM and was easily purged by Elements of Harmony.
However, this may be another story in this artwork. Go Luna! Kick her butt for Celestia when Chrysalis loses the power of love.
“I only wish you had been there, Luna, perhaps together we could have—”
“We would not surmise to have the magic to defeat the power of love, harnessed and weaponized.” Luna interrupted, shaking her head. “If we had been there, we might’ve been smote as easily as thou.” She smiled just a little, her mischievous brow rising on one side. “Though we must admit, seeing thou get knocked on thy backside would’ve been worth it.”

That story was recently deleated, but the author indicated it will be put back up.
Thx a lot and I agree that concept of these sentences. I've read that story before and I loved that (both original ending and new ending) Hey, but in that story, Luna is the super villain (if you read the new ending). She would not fight with Chrysalis having Love Juice in a Kamehameha fight, but she would have a evil backstab if she wish (and she didn't, her mighty backstab was prepared FOR CELESTIA in that story)
Anyway, in this good artwork, maybe Luna know that Chrysalis lost the LOVE JUICE stealed from Cadance/Shining after the wedding and she prepared a free butt-kick instead of free hugs to Chrysalis.
Er.. I'm sorry I can't give you the link of both endings of "Tough Love: Luna vs Celestia". I read this from Fim-Fiction. Aegis Shield had put both endings of that great story this month. But he then deleted them in a incident.. I think he will put these stories back to Fim-Fiction.
The chapter you saw was the previous chapter of the ending. Er.. I don't want to make you upset for *spoiler* if I tell you the story before your reading. The original ending is a bitter sweet ending. The new ending is the super villain taking over all ending. Both endings are entertaining and I wish you enjoy them when Aegis Shield put them back to Fim-Fiction.
Look at the background. This is not taking place at the wedding. So maybe Chrysalis isn't supercharged with stolen love. If that's the case, I'm betting on best pony to squash the changling like a bug.
