Equestria Regional Message Board
It would be real easy if one were to have an army of Leviathans.
They showed in the Hearth's Warming Eve episode that the Unicorns worked together to move the sun/moon before the princesses showed up.
So they're not totally essential, just convenient.
True, their singularity cannons would make short work of any dragon.
...You do mean the Leviathan from Unreal Tournament 2004, right?
I meant from Supernatural and Civilization Call to Power. Truly, a deadly combination.
Call to Power... yanno, I played that, remember playing it, and still can't remember the Leviathan from it.
I was more enamored with underwater maglevs and cities and striking from orbit. Because I like hitting my foes with the force of an unruly pagan god.
So according to the available lore, the Sun and Moon can be moved around by magical equnes. This, however, does not mean they can't move on their own.
Let us consider what makes our planets move: Gravity. They clearly have gravity in Equestria, judging by the fact their atmosphere never escaped into space, and that objects appear to be attracted to their planet [they "fall" in a way comparable to Earth's gravity].
Now, an important issue would be to determine if their galaxy is heliocentric or not. We know ours is, and thus that Earth moves around the Sun. This doesn't initially appear to be the case in Equestria, as it is claimed that magic moves the Sun around. Therefore, two options emerge. Either their galaxy is not heliocentric and indeed their Sun revolves around their planet, or they are just plainly wrong and what magic-users are moving around is their planet instead.
What do you believe?
For my part, I believe the whole "moving the stars around" thing is certainly POSSIBLE with their magic, but that it isn't NECESSARY to move them around "manually" all the time. More like a show of force.
It is still open for debate whether there is gravity or not, whether their Sun is a huge-star-far-away like ours or a small-satellite-much-closer, or the validity of such a debate.
There had to have been day and night before the magic ponies gained their magic. Perhaps their planet lost the energy to keep spinning, so the unicorns/alicorns use their magic to keep things turning, but say they're moving the sun/moon instead because let's be honest, that's a lot more impressive sounding.
They definelty move things unessesarily! Lets just remember how they move the weather around and care for animals, so unlike the everfree forest 'where animals care for themselves and the weather is strange *applejack telling a scary story face*
Personally, I believe that the whole "raising the sun" thing was just a show of power that Celestia did when she took the throne, in order to inspire her subjects, and then Celestia and Woona got stuck with the (theoretical) responsibility of raising the sun and the moon. However, Nightmare Moon did, indeed, make the moon stay up longer than normal, so that means that the princesses DO have the power to raise the sun and the moon. So... huh. Not quite sure where that's going. Damn 10 o'clock brain.
I have solemn news: Nelson Mandela has recently died today 12/05/2013
May he continue to inspire us beyond life as we know it. Amen...
