Lucky Star the goofy ass chicken: dis my bf. i smooched him on the lips. he’s my tall, dark and handsome bat boi.
Midnight’s Kiss the unimpressed yet somehow flattered boyfriend: これは恥ずかしい.
Is it now time to work on couples? I guess.
Lucky Star and Midnight’s Kiss are a newer couple here. They’re still finding their wings (h a h a h a Lucky has no wings) but they’re pretty solid even though they’re very, very different ponies with completely different personalities and backgrounds. Lucky Star is a Ponyville born engineer with a famous sports mom and a wacky go-lucky mama, while Midnight’s Kiss is from a long line of pure blood, dark batponies from Japony. Lucky Star is kind of messy and not the most organized while Midnight's Kiss is cleanliness personified.
They’re um. A strange couple indeed.
They met at one of Pinkie Pie’s fundraisers and have had eyes for each other since. Well, more like Lucky Star had her's on him since Midnight didn’t pay much mind to her at first. The pegasus had to go away to her job soon and knew if she at least didn’t let this gorgeous, bombastic stallion of a pony know how she felt (no matter how undignified) she would regret it. She did regret it because she unceremoniously dropped a strawberry sizzle smoothie on his hooves but to her shock he said yes to her proposal to “go out fo’ a hot minute”.
Lucky Star is pretty smarmy (like Doctor Bashir from Star Trek or Sonic the Hedgehog, whatever your poison) and is proud as heck to have snagged Midnight - she doesn’t let some ponies *cough* Sid *cough* forget. Pegasus are known for fluffing up for various reasons but in situations where they’re feeling a deep connection and a weeeee bit of possession they rub their shoulders, nose and forehead (and sometimes butt) against whatever they’re heart desires.
Midnight’s like “omg staaaaahp” because pegasus are kind of weird, especially ones from completely different country. But they groom each other often (not really a big batpony thing, but hey - free bug meal!) and that’s what Midnight is doing here before Poetic Justice walked in and Lucky goes “i’m makin’ out with you cousin and rubbed my ass all over him lol”.’
I like the idea that anytime a pegasus has a high energy moment they release whatever element they’re aligned with in little electrical bolts (thank u Lopoddity for this I just had to yoink it). Lucky’s vapor trails were orange before she lost her wings.
Don’t worry, Midnight is fine. He never has a hair out of place except the one.
Anyways, we haven't seen Lucky Star or Midnight’s Kiss in forever! The former is the eldest daughter of Derpy Hooves and Rainbow Dash, and the latter is an OC with OC parents. Lucky Star had a huuuge overhaul in terms of her colors. I wanted to make her look more like RD but keep the beach-y vibe since she lives and breathes the ocean.She was given more bold colors too since she is a pegasus and most have them have bright colors! Sid probably used to call her fish breath as kids since she reminds a lot of ponies of a fish with her markings. Midnight didn’t change at all since I’ve always been pleased with his design.
Not sure if they’re still together currently or not but only time will tell so for now it’s up to you, watchers.
Translation: これは恥ずかしい - Kore wa hazukashii (This is embarrassing).
Lucky couldn’t speak Japonese but is learning. Kinda. She's a genius but pretty bad at picking up languages.
just wished it had more background, maybe actually seeing the scene so we can grasp further the dynamic (or at least me because i'm so curious as to how they bounce off each other in a conversation) i think it's very interesting
Maaan, I'm not sure yet. I've mostly been working on their characters because I don't really ship a lot of my next gen. I think once I introduce some more then couples can be established.
Oh, cool, love this! Opposites attract ships are always interesting to me. Can't blame Lucky for going for Midnight when she did; Midnight is just, so much yes. I really like Lucky's new color scheme, especially the focus on primary colors. I can see a lot more of Rainbow in her design now, and it works well with her younger brother Gambit looking more like Derpy (and Dawn being a medium between the two).
I also love all the little details, like pegasi fluffing up and electrifying with high emotions, and being possessive and rubbing up against their desires. (Now I really want to see Poet's reaction to catching Lucky being groomed by Midnight, maybe similar to his reaction here or a bit more embarrassed than that.)
I'm definitely up for seeing more of this ship, whether this is only a past relationship for them or one that they're currently in. There's a lot of good story potential no matter which direction you go with their relationship, and I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with them!
Thanks! The other one was pretty but I had too many 'white' next gens. I think Hijack should be the only one. Plus you can obviously see that she's RD's kid.
He'd probably try to act cool lol. But is trying to hide a blush. That's his little cousin! How dare that dastardly pirate rub her rear end on him
No problem! Yeah, her older color scheme was nice, but reminded me a bit of Vapor Trail (as did Gambit's old color scheme and Sky Stinger), so I like how their new color schemes help them fit more with who their parents are. Also, the reds really fit well with Lucky's brasher personality.
Yeah, I can definitely see that. He'd try to be all stoic, but inwardly he'd be all embarrassed and maybe a bit squicked out. He doesn't want to think about his cousin doing anything like that or having it done to him. Talk about awkward!
