*** This troper just assumed that the blood thing was similar to Voldemort in the fourth Harry Potter book, when they take some of Harry's blood and add it to the potion to bring back Voldy with the added bonus that he can now touch Harry without pain. Basically, maybe Twilight wouldn't be able to attack Nightmare Moon by herself at all, and would NEED the Elements of Harmony to injure her?



* In the original edit of the story, Celestia took Nyx away from Twilight with the intent of testing to see if she was really Nightmare Moon--- and if she was, ''using magic to dispel her into oblivion.'' That's right; Princess Celestia was going to ''disintegrate a little filly into nothingness.'' This was so fridge-horrific, not to mention out of character, that the authors subsequently retconned it.

*** The blood transfusion bit doesn't really apply here. There's a difference between a small amount of blood being given to a person and a person being born/created/whatever with the blood as a base. Also, from the sounds of things it wasn't a catalyst, just Nexus trying to find a way to prevent the Elements of Harmony from working. Beyond that, it's open to interpretation. Anyone know if there's been WordOfGod on this issue?
***** As of the version I read, the blood was supposed to provide life-force or something; the ritual drained the life from the blood.
**** The authors (or at least one of them) has claimed that that Nyx isn't genetically related to Twilight. Considering they're really pushing for a "Nyx is Nightmare Moon reborn" story with their last edits, this might be another item that get's revised.

* Spell Nexus stated that he himself recieved "the blessing" from the remains of the originial Nightmare Moon, suggesting that "the blessing" is responsible for Luna's transformation into the original Nightmare Moon... and now it's spreading.

** Two things: one, Twilight had a bag over her head, so she probably doesn't know what her blood was used for. Two, one might argue that the drop of blood was merely a catalyst for the spell. Some might even argue that the drop of blood is more in tune to a blood transfusion. I'm pretty sure that donating blood to another person doesn't make the two related.

* Twilight tells Nyx to think of her as a mother, and goes for the whole adoption route. Did Twilight forget the part of the cultists' spell where they use her blood? If we follow how Nyx was created from her blood, then Twilight actually is Nyx's mother genetically.
