Search for the Moon Flower by Crazypurplebat Search for the Moon Flower by Crazypurplebat
Prima Donna had always heard about the fabled Moon Flower, also known as Luna's Flower. A relative of the Flower of Truth, it is often times written off as a fable since almost nopony has seen it. It blooms only under the full moon and releases a soft iridescent glow. It can only grow on the cliffs of desert plateaus.

Prima questioned her sister Lapis Lazuli who often traveled to the desert in search of precious gems. While Lazuli had never seen it herself she had heard about a mulicorn who specialized in the plants of the desert, she went by the name Prairie Flower.

Prima resolved to find the flower, that like her, only bloomed during the night. Packing her few items, she set off at night in order to protect her sensitive skin. After several days travel she found Prairie Flower who eagerly agreed to help her find the Moon Flower. Prairie claimed to have seen it once before, and they began preparations for the journey into the deep desert.

For days they traveled, Prima hiding under the shade of her huge parasol, the two of them surviving on the herbal knowledge of Prairie Flower. Over the days Prima grew to hold a great respect for Prairie Flower, who held herself proudly even though she was different from everypony else.

At night they climbed the shear cliffs, and finally, under the full moon they found the Moon Flower, glowing bright under the light of them moon. With the reassurance that she was not the only thing who glowed brightest under the light of the moon, Prima returned home, her attitude brightened even if only by the smallest bit, and the knowledge that she had a new friend.




Originally drawn for *Sajira 's contest, it somewhat turned into a bit of a series, with more pictures to follow. This was my first real picture in Sai, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I still have a lot to learn, but I hope to get better! Everything in the picture is drawn by me except for the moon which was made by: :iconmisteraibo:

Prima Donna belongs to me
Prairie Flower belongs to :iconsajira:
MLP:FIM belongs to Lauren Faust/Hasbro
