Actually, this picture was the inspiration for the fanfic. The picture came first, and the oodles of plot ideas second. So thanks again to fongsaunder for letting me use the picture as my coverart! This artist is the reason that fic exists at all!
I was wondering if I could use this image for the cover of my new fic? It isn't uploaded it, but here's the description:
When Rarity writes to Princess Celestia inquiring after how dragons age, she gets a plea for help in reply. A war is brewing, and Princess Celestia thinks Rarity's the one to stop it. Now, still completely uncertain what her feelings for Spike are or if they're even plausible, she's off to meet with his distant relatives to negotiate a truce between the dragons and the sea serpents before the world gets caught up in their destructive clash.
I plan on uploading the first chapter this week sometime. My fimfiction account name is paleowriter, and I've written multiple fics exploring the Spike/Rarity relationship. This will be my first action/adventure fic, though, and this pic has inspired a later scene in it for me.
