And Magic Is Heresy by NCMares And Magic Is Heresy by NCMares
"Please." the xenos looked up with hopeful violet eyes.
Behind that hope was fear, however. The being that stood before it was no longer the faithful student she loved, but she was down there, somewhere.

She had to be.

"Will you accept my friendship?"

Twilight Sparkle grimaced as a thousand memories came rushing to the forefront of her mind. Memories of the old world. Of Equestria. Of her friends and the love they shared.
For years she'd been haunted by the inability to complete the phrase. She'd forgotten what friendship was. Now she remembered.

She finally opened her eyes and Celestia visibly shuddered under her glare.

"I'm sorry, Princess."

The bolt pistol clicked.

"But friendship is magic..."

--

Am I a heretic for drawing pony/40k? Maybe, but trust me when I say that it's a lot of fun-*BLAM!* This is also fueled heavily by the rule of cool. Should a xenos even be able to touch lovely commissar threads? Probably not, but I think she looks pretty darn awesome in them! If the rule of cool doesn't satisfy you, however, then my condolences. :[

Inspired by this fan-fic.

Twilight's considered a sanctioned psyker by the Imperium, so unicorn "magic" isn't what she's referring to. :) Oh, and this is probably best viewed on a monitor. It's a tad dark. GRIM-dark! >:]

Oh snap - that's the number three slot in the drawfriend! Thank you, guys! :D www.equestriadaily.com/2014/08…

That's sad. Great idea with the title tho.
I don't know if it was your intention, but thanks to that fancy hat Twi can eclipse entire sun with all of its glory. And same goes for the little sun cowering on the ground in fear.

Very nicely drawn, even if I could never see Twilight doing this or even consider shooting Celestia unless the princess had been corrupted by chaos or possessed by a daemon.

According to lore, psykers are very likely to be corrupted by the Warp due to their powers. If Celestia happened to be a psyker, she would either eventually be corrupted or possessed. Or killed by zealous Grey Knights.

Yes, but unicorns and even alicorns have been shown is quite stable magic users compared to the spellcasters of Warhammer Fantasy and the psykers of Warhammer 40k.

Out of your three suggestions the third feels to be the most likely. Honestly I feel Twilight, given her youth and inexperience compared to her mentor would have her be more likely pony for corruption or possession... along with a thirst for knowledge and drive to learn magic that would draw interest from Tzeentch. What is it that could lead Princess Celestia to be corrupted or possessed compared to her student?

After +1k years....probably not much if nothing has yet.   Twilight however...as we saw in EQG3, she on the surface isn't immune to corruption.

lmao... 
i mean i already compared Celestia to HIM ... but... i forgot some minor rly tincy bit that makes them quiet counter parts to one another.

Celestia loves EVERY living being... the Emperor loves his children for sure... but other species... NOT SOOOOOO MUCH :<
