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.

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.
You're probably right. 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!!
...is that, by any chance, in any fanfic?
...Why am I inserting politics into ponies? :I
XD Cause it's a society in itself!
