:Contest entry: Changeling Celestia by Angelea-Phoenix :Contest entry: Changeling Celestia by Angelea-Phoenix
Guess who finished up her entry for this contest:
dA [link]
Tumblr [link]

If you said that it was me, then congratulations, you're correct. Have a :cookie:

The design for changeling Celestia was created by *InkRose98 and can be found here: [link]

I can only imagine that Celestia is the type who'd be strong and not seem to be emotionally affected by her change when in the prescence of her subjects and her loved ones, but when finally alone, she would break down and let it all out.

If you feel like it, please reblog from here (instead of uploading to Tumblr yourself): [link]

Also: SEASON 3! :iconcannotevenplz:

EDIT: Guys! 200 :+fav:'s in 24 hours! I love you!

EDIT 2: Ermahgerd! I GOT SECOND PLACE! :squee: I didn't even think I was going to make it to the top three with all those lovely entries xD The winning submission was my favourite :3

EDIT 3: Have some fanfiction inspired by this: [link]. This was written by the lovely ~vren55, who came to me asking if he was allowed to write a story and use this as the cover for it. He obviously got my permission. The writing is great. Give it a go ;P

I was browsing FIMfiction and stumbled onto vren55's story, then had to follow here and say this- I love this picture! Not only is Celestia's form still fairly telltale, the emotion in the picture is almost tangible. Poor Celestia...but what a wonderfully well-done picture of her!

You would have to ask *LegoAhsoka111 as this was done for a contest based on her story and she designed this version of Celestia. If she's okay with it, then by all means, go for it ;)

Changelings are my favorite thing in MLP, for the simple reason that they seemed to got out of 2 movies.

The Fly (more to the remake)
and
Mystique from X-Men

Think about it, in the Fly movie, the doctor becomes a creature half fly and half human. Doesn't the changelings seem to be half flies (look at their wings and the sounds that they make when they fly) and half ponies?
And for the Mystique part...well, she can turn into anyone and that is exactly what the Changelings are capable.

So...they took my favorite movie and villain and added MLP...

So awesome !

And then she realizes all the love she absorbs from the MILLIONS of her little ponies, far more than what Chrysalis received from Shining Armour, had the unforseen consequence of making her even more powerful than ever...

Well, they will still have Princess Luna to handle the sun and moon. And I imagine Twilight would move Heaven and Equestria to find a way to restore her teacher.

I just got an epic scenario in my head over this situation:

As in Canon, Queen Chrysalis is defeated during the wedding, but before she was ejected, she was planning to actually convert Princess Celestia into a Changeling, so she had exposed her with just enough mutagen/polymorphic-magic in Princess Celestia's cacoon before she was thrown out of Canterlot.

One morning Princess Celestia realizes that she is slowly changing into a Changeling, and tries to hide it from her sister, student and rest of her subjects, but as time went on she begins to develop Changeling instincts and her powers goes haywire briefly as her body and her magic adjusts itself to new Changeling physiology, causing no end of troubles. Eventually, they do find out, and at first thought that she was an impostor, forcing her to flee.

Changeling!Celestia storms Queen Chrysalis' hive in a fit of rage, only to discover that Queen Chrysalis is dying from a fatal overdose of love she had received from the love-amplified shield spell that ejected her and her army out of Canterlot. Without a heir, Chrysalis dies passing her duties to Changeling!Celestia, guilt-tripping her into taking up the post as Queen of the Changeling swarm by telling her that without a queen the Changeling realm will fall apart from Civil War and starvation.

Now she is in between a rock and a hard place - her very ponies, friends, family and kingdom are still looking for her, and she's stuck as the Queen of a race of emotional vampires that now looks at her for leadership. At the same time, her new Changeling physiology and instincts becomes an enemy from within that poses to override her mind with obsessive NEED to feed on love and emotions of other races, an alter ego that she had to do battle with in her mind for dominance.

What happens NEXT?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the artist who started the 'Changeling Celestia' contest is doing a comic strip/Tumblr that is covering something very much like that.

But yeah, that would make for a great story.

BrutalityInc Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012
I've seen it. Premise is dark: Chrysalis wins, Luna, Cadence and the Elements of Harmony vanishes, Celestia turned into powerless Changeling, Canterlot and Equestria overrun. In other words, bleak.

Ah, thanks for letting me know what it's like so far.

Though I could also see this being done as comedy, of all things, depending on how it's written.

"Twilight Sparkle, I need your help in here!"

"Why of course, Princess Celestia, I'm always ready to --" Twilight walks in and sees Changeling!Celestia. "AHHHH!" Twi dives behind a statue. "It's Queen Chrysalis! Stay away from me!"

"Oh dear, you mean it's noticeable?"

Given that she still should be able to change into her original form, I think she is a bit hypocrite. It's not like she has to look like that. Actually she gine one more power.
Okay, the downside is a 4x weakness against Bird Monsters, but how likely are those to attack her?
