Stupid Ponies! by FaithFirefly Stupid Ponies! by FaithFirefly
"This is all you and your stupid ponies' fault!! All they are are self-righteous, cowardly, selfish, and they think they're better than everyone!!! If they had just come and let it rain on the village once in a while, then more gems would grow here, then we wouldn't be starving, then the Elders wouldn't have made this stupid Rationing Law, then Dad wouldn't have gotten hurt and lost his place with them, then your egg wouldn't have been stolen and Mama wouldn't have had to give up her food for years and she wouldn't be dying!! If your prissy pony princess really cares about all of her "subjects", then why doesn't she help us?!? She doesn't care!!! And if Mama dies and you still wanna go back and live with them, then that makes you a traitor!! And traitors here get driven out or killed!! And I'm not gonna have a traitor for a goody two-shoes brother!!"

:bulletgreen::bulletpurple::bulletgreen:

Well, here we have Smokey basically on his last straw with his pony-raised brother actually considering going back home to his pony friends. Smokey lays out exactly why everything's been so dreary and hectic in Spike's birthplace for the past several years - as well as the conflict between the dragons and basically the rest of Equestria - and the dangers of what could happen in the near future if it keeps up.

Why would rain cause more crystals to grow? They are rocks

A lot of gems actually form underground when water on the ground's surface is evaporated into it and minerals in the water are left behind and accumulate. Other factors such as temperature and pressure actually cause the crystalization. :)

We'll just say magic explains why they're in groups of differently-colored, perfectly cut gems when they're dug up. Since that defies science. XD

Goodness, there is quite a lot more to Spike's backstory according your headcanon. I can understand why Smokey's upset, but it's not all Spike's fault! I hope the little guy can work this out.

 

The only thing that looks a little awkward is Spike's posture, I would think his legs should be more braced for impact along with his arm.

Upbringing in a dragon colony is a lot more brutal. ^^; One of those animal societies where the elders are a threat to the young when they think them as a threat to their position. Fights always break out in the colony and a food shortage was the icing on the cake. The thought that his brother grew up in this safe, posh nice pony society didn't give him much reason to sympathize with Spike. ^^;

You're probably right. :lol: Still getting used to drawing him.

#1: Oh, really? Go tell that to Dad! He got caught trying to steal from the community stash to feed Mom and us, and your egg was gone when they turned around!! And Mom says there was a scent leading away from the nest!
#2: *growls* How could you say that?! She's our mother!! She and Dad have searched for years for you!! And the only reason Mom is sick is because not only has she worried, but she's given a lot of her food and water  to us!! Don't be ungrateful!!
#3: No, there's NOT. Gems need water to develop, and none of your ponies have bothered coming here to bring rain! #4: They are TOO!! All of this is their fault!! They have the ability to fix it but they WON'T!!

Does make me wonder about the ponies' position in their world, considering they seem to have a monopoly on gems and the weather.

And they probably really do have a self-centered world viewpoint (consider how they use the phrase "everypony") of themselves.

FaithFirefly Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Well, any content using my characters I don't really like going above the rating of the original show. My story has a bit more violence than I assume Hasbro would let on air, what with the whole harsh lifestyle of the dragons, but that's it. And it's nothing gruesome. What kind of story were you thinking?

Well, the story would be about the diplomatic relations of Equestria some years after the end of the series. I wanted some ideas for problems between the dragons and the ponies, and then i found this. however the story won't be only this. tank you.

I dunno, do we really believe Spike somehow left Equestria when he went on his quest? As well as the girls when they followed him? The dragons can fly, so I imagine they migrate all over the different countries.

:iconzero-zivan:
Zero-Zivan Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True, but that doesn't mean the ones in Equestria live under Celestia's rule. We already know that the red one was dealt with because Celestia asked the Mane 6 to do it. Possibly because she couldn't deal with him herself...? For risk of political repercussions, perhaps...?

...Why am I inserting politics into ponies? :I

:iconfaithfirefly:
FaithFirefly Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Well, I wouldn't say that the dragons in Equestria ARE under Celestia's rule. XD Seeing as how they're apparently too rare and scary for ponies to approach. And really, the dragons could care less about Celestia and her rules. And thus never follow them and so are considered brutes that are too dangerous to deal with. And seeing as how ponies never approach them and always avoid them, it doesn't seem like the ponies would get near enough to put rain clouds over their village.

XD Cause it's a society in itself!

:iconzero-zivan:
Zero-Zivan Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
THEREFORE Smokey's argument is invalid because Celestia has no power over their way of life.

:iconfaithfirefly:
FaithFirefly Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Yeeeah. ^^; But again, they don't think well of her anyway but know that she is very highly thought of as a ruler. And they hate her because they don't at least get rain for food growth. Dragons aren't really all that good on friendship, especially the Elder Dragons that actually run the village. They don't get the whole "you have to give to gain" thing.
