Where did Smarty Pants come from? The bullies took that stuffy then it appeared after Shining Armor scares them off but the didn't have with them I'm confused

If this was the real world: The bullies then reported the incident to the press resulting in Shining Armour being shamed, "for abusng his guard position and powers" and questions are asked about the Royal Guard. In order to save face/avoid any further bad publicity the Royal Guard fire him causing him to fall into deep depression/let himself go leading to Cadence losing interest in him and eventually even his parents giving up on him. Then the only person who still believes in him, (his little sister) is sent away to study.

Though this appeared to be before he joined the ROyal Guard, hence gaining his cutie mark and he has the word of Cadence backing him up.

Real world doesn't always mean depressing ya know
Chroniton8990 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015
So it would ruin his career chances instead of costing him his position. The same questions would still be asked about the Royal Guard and his depression would be just as bad. While real life may not always be depressing it is most of the time regardless.
Void-Wolf Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015  Student General Artist
Don't think I follow your logic. Especially since it's not uncommon to send bad kids to the military to straighten them out. Also, he didn't do anything to them and he has Cadence backing his statement so his word would be considers more valid than those of the bullies.

what was the point of you pointing this anyway?
1.Questions asked about the implied failure in the Royal Guard's selection and training processes that would be construde to have been implied by the incident, (ie: Failure to notice and straighten out bad kids aswell as to what extent such bullying and power abuse is insitutionalised in the organisation.
2.The press would blow it out of proportion into a scandal to sell papers regardless of who backs him up leading to him being fired as a .P.R. damage limitation move.

The point is to show that the world isn't as nice as the picture implies and how damaging his actions would be when translated into real life.
Void-Wolf Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Student General Artist
Except that this isn't real life and he really didn't do anything outside of teleport tbem and I doubt the media would be interested in this.

I really fail to see the logic here and worst case scenarios isn't what life is about.

Such a great older brother and a kind foalsitter! :D
In retrospect, it isn't wise to pick on a foal in front of an older pony, especially a princess
StreamSecret Featured By Owner Edited Jul 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Twilight looks so scared when they show up again, but Cadence's face makes me think "This is who's she's scared of?"
Also, wouldn't the fact that Cadence is an alicorn scare them off? 
The story's real nice though, and the shading is awesome.

Chatsium Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I really liked the image, as it describes a scene from a fanfic I read and I really liked
The fic is called Perihelion, is a story that contains shipping (Twilight/Comet)
The Yellow Unicorn is Comet Tail
He used to bully
Twilight (Instigated by the other two), but it was because he was insecure, others teased him (Because he came from the country) and no one wanted to be his friend
In the end these two bullies ended up approaching him and Comet in an attempt not to lose the only friends who had now began to bully others (and reluctantly Twilight)
He really disliked the idea to hurt others, but he doesn't want to be alone again
See Twilight crying really touched him, and boosted him to rebel against the ones who were pretending to be his friends
He began to hate those bullies for using him to make Twilight cry, she was really like him, without friends and often being teased, and began to regret what he did
He dropped Smarty Pants (on purpose) while escaping, then tired of this situation decided to get away from these bullies
It took a long time to recover and discover his true talent, and realizing that he liked her
But when Comet tried to amend his mistake it was too late, Twilight had gone to study under the tutelage of Princess Celestia

The fic is in FimFiction
I love TwiTail pairing

Dr. X: Heh. He truly is a 'shining armour'.

Raven: Heh. Eeeyup.

Dr. X: And now, will you help me find those foals so that I may use them for my next 'experiment' as punishment for bullying Twilight?

Raven: ....... Nnnope. On a side note, those bullies either don't know what an alicorn is, didn't notice the wings or the fact that Cadance is an adult, or are too confident...... and just plain stupid and reckless at that.

LightningStrike60 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
Wait a sec, if Twilight didn't have her cutie mark at the time, then why does Shinning's show the purple 6 pointed star on the shield before she even knew what her special talent was?
