The Moonstone chamber.

As I have professed many times over "Glimmer's Story" from She-Ra's season one is by far one of the worst of the series. However, dare I say this; there are a few good moments in the episode. One of which is the inclusion of the Moonstone, and the awesome temple-like chamber that houses it. What I like about the Moonstone concept is that it gives Bright Moon a certain mysticism; something that was sadly missing for much of the series. It was established early on that Queen Angella was a being of magic and could link herself to her castle, but many of the writers never addressed that story. It is just a shame that the Moonstone appears in one of the poorest episodes of the series...

Beautiful shading and detail on the statue. This room looks like it could belong to Frosta, given the cool color scheme. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

If the writers hadn't made Glimmer so annoying (and out of character with her earlier appearances) in this episode, I actually think it would have been quite a decent story - and yes, that is down in no small part to the Moonstone storyline! :)

This is one of the most amazing layouts! The statue is incredible--I wish they'd revisited the room at other times in the series.

It is an interesting background and what I like most is the size. That seems to be great! The characters were there, (Angela, Glimmer, False Face) are small compared to such a statue. It's a shame that throughout the series not developed the stories that are suggested here: The moonstone ... Where Does it Come From, who is the woman-statue, and so on.

I wish the Moonstone would have been portrayed more often in the series. There could have been lots of great use, as well as story elements for the episodes.

Another perfect Filmation background. So imposing and mystical! But to have it in many more episodes would have made it less special. Either that or it would have been used as a completely different location.
