One of Luna's trusted bat pones reminiscences about the day she was forced to leave her princess. Overall, a pretty solid oneshot, with the ending achieving the critical goal of tying things together with a little poignancy that's needed for the more serious oneshots. That said, the pacing did feel pretty fast, especially the ending with its almost end credit like "here's what the character did for the next fifty years" narration. It also would have been nice to see Luna and Star's relationship expanded a bit to make the loss more impactful.
