friendship is magic

3

Doin’ a lot of traditional sketching and figured I didn’t really do much for the AUs I’ve played with, so I decided to try and go for a new one! I just… I have so many in my head that I’d love to share, and I simply can’t stay away from RariTwi for long. ;_;

So as you could probably guess, this AU is (once again) focused on my typically favorite pairings: RariTwi, AppleDash, and PinkieShy. This time, the idea is a Goddess!AU because I thought it’d be very cool to see the dynamic the characters would have with half of them being of divine blood, while the other half are mortals. The general idea behind it is this:

Rarity isn’t just a normal seamstress, but also one of the priestesses of Ponyville who have sworn to protect their home and give the proper tending to the Gods and Goddesses that watch over them. Ponyville has been getting an influx of attacks from shadow-like monsters, and while the warriors and priests/priestesses have been able to fend them off thus far, things are slowly starting to deteriorate. The town does their thing and pray to the gods for help, but Rarity decides to take things further and essentially offer herself in exchange for help ridding Ponyville of their growing problem.

One night, she makes a summoning circle and calls upon the one she thinks could help her most: The Guardian of Magic. Who’s the Guardian of Magic, you ask? Twilight Sparkle, of course, although the mortals don’t know of her actual name. Anyway, Twi is summoned and the two have an interaction (how the interaction goes is up to you). In the end though, the two come up with a deal: Twilight protects Ponyville in exchange of something from Rarity. I personally already have an idea of what it could be, ranging from:


-Twi protects the town in exchange for Rarity’s help in her investigation on why so many shadow-monsters are attacking the town so frequently (hint it has something to do with the Elements of Harmony). This is the one I already have some of the plot thought of and might seem to be a little darker in content.

-Twi tells Rarity that she must become either her clergy or her lover in order to enact an oath that will guarantee Twi’s hand in protecting the town (basically, she will come almost every time she’s summoned upon). The option of lover is, of course, the one that guarantees all of Twi’s protection, including protection from other gods and mortals who might set their eyes on Rarity for one reason or another. This one would allow far more shenanigans and freedom to do a lot more with while still give room for the plot to go in whatever direction you want.

Which one do you guys think would be more interesting to hear about? Either way, I already have some worldbuilding at the ready, so be prepared for a few sketches detailing that as well as introducing the rest of the characters as they appear in this AU. ^.^ Also, before I go:

Fun Fact 1- Twilight does have wings in this AU but I’m torn between having her wings be stolen from her and her looking for a way to get them back (a bit similar to Maleficent in that aspect), or they’re completely intact. Which do you think would work better? O:


Fun Fact 2- Twilight is a demigod (half mortal half divine). Her mother is the Deity of Knowledge and her father is a mortal, but the two live happily together.


Anyway, let me know what ya’ll think, and thank you for taking a look! ^.^

Help me raise money for a new PC!!

Hello everyone~!! I keep saying this but I’m not dead! :U I just got a bit busy with life itself and it’s about to get busier as my first school semester starts in less then a month! ;u; Goodbye freedom~!

Despite that, I would like to get my hands on any commission I can get before school kicks in. I will be open all the the time most likely but my progress will be slower once classes start.

Okay, so, bottom line, we need a new PC. Our old Bugatti (yes we name our stuff haha) is starting to get slower as time progresses and there is nothing we can do about it considering computer is over 6 years old, I think. It’s 4GB served us well but heck even my cellphone has more RAM than this fella in this day and age… It’s time for our companion to retire (if he doesn’t kick the bucket in mean time aaah). We definitely need a new PC since a lot of my work and majority of money I earn goes through me trying to earn as much as I can by drawing. No computer means no drawing and no drawing means no money for me to pay bills or generally live normally without having to worry too much about adult stuff. ;u;

I asked bro about it and since he refuses to buy just a new PC that’s gonna be okay, he wants to built up and buy a PC  that’s going to be both okay and last as much as it can (like our old Bugatti did). Counting in all that, the somewhat accurate price for it would be 500 Euros, which is going to be my GOAL

I never managed to collect enough last time when I set it up as a goal but I think I’m doing better and faster with work than then, so I REALLY hope I’ll manage to achieve it!

SO, HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP!!

-COMMISSION ME~! It’s fair and square, you got the drawing, I get moniez I need to collect for new PC!

Remember that you can order several drawings from me at once but have to keep in mind it will take time to do all of them.

This is the best option for me as well~ You can check the prices bellow in this journal, as well as other sites where you can find and commission me on!

-SUPPORT ME ON PATREON~!! I’ve had it for awhile now but tiers aren’t anything special which is the reason why I haven’t gotten to show it off a little more. I hope to come up with better tiers in the future, I’m even open for suggestion on what you’d like to see me put up as a tier there.

-LIVESTREAM COMMISSION!! I am still thinking of appropriate timing to hold these but they will most likely be held on Wednesdays! You get to watch me do art on stream AND you can commission me to draw what you suggest and pay during the stream itself. Usually this works great if commissions are either a sketch or lineart type!

-DONATE??? While I prefer to earn some cash through honest work, I might be a bit desperate here since I don’t know how much longer this PC will live. ;u; I don’t expect big sums or anything, heck I even have a Patreon tier that’s a 2$ donation which I consider enough.

-SPREAD THE WORD!!! Have a pall who is up to offer a sum for a commission and my kind of art could be what they’re searching for? Let them know I’m available! I’ll be posting this journal on my tumblr and art blog as well so feel free to reblog!!

:

Thank you ahead!! In mean time, I’ll try draw some fanarts you guys might be interested to see. :3 I do have couple of unrelated projects to finish but I will do my best~

You say mimic like it's the opposite of pony, but didn't the CMC once meet a mimic who was at least pretty much like an animal (if not a pony), and pretty smart at that? That was definitely a living creature, right?

That would be the Globulus Improbulus, the Greater Equestrian Mimicker. In this instance, I used the word mimic to refer in the broader sense to any being which can take on the form of some creature or object.

The Mirror Pond creatures are spirits, which may be living depending upon your definition of life. Defining life is quite a complicated matter, however. I don’t think I implied they are the opposite of a pony though. I’m not even sure that that would entail. I imagine it would be quite bizarre.
