I think we all agree it's been enough talking - it's time for some action.

The birds and bees?  Here?  Not going to lie, this page kind of had me scratching my head here.  Then again, it may just be from the topic that Spike and Starlight are talking about.

Scratching your head as in wondering why this is brought up?

Not entirely sure.  Starlight and Spike seemed to be talking about dating and reproduction, and at the same time it seemed like they were talking about something else.  Perhaps it was just me trying to grasp two different things, or maybe I was reading the page incorrectly.

I wouldn't worry about it.  I have a basic idea of what they were saying.

Yep, they are actually talking about something else :) First underlying messageis that Twilight has a long lifespan, as alicorns do - and thus we learn that Spike will not be left alone, still young. His age is my second underlying message - he's smart but young and naive. Finally Twilight also failed basic parental duties like giving him the Talk, something that will be mentioned in the future.

(For the record, in my hc alicorns are not immortal. Immortality is definitely a BIG "no" for me. Living for a thousand years is a managable deal, but living so long you watch the sun and stars die and galaxies to be born again seems to me a stuf from a nightmare).

Well....That was not very helpful for Starlight.

I do still doubt that Starlight thinking Sunburst would choose Twilight over her would be incredibly petty of her and kind of prove that she has just as little faith in him as he has in her.

But in all seriousness, the plot thickens!  So now Starlight's jealousy is making her believe that Sunburst is looking at Twilight with rosy-colored eyes.  This'll probably make for some interesting developments in the future.

Also, it's interesting how Twilight is waiting a very long time to have that talk.  On the one hand, "having all the time they need" ties into the fact that dragons and alicorns have long lifespans.  I also have a bit of a headcanon that dragons age slower than ponies do, so he'd reach true adulthood far after a pony would.  However, it's also very probable that Twi doesn't feel comfortable talking about this subject to Spike.  And I can understand that; it's a messy subject that requires extreme delicacy to address (I mean, you don't wanna be like Grunkle Stan in Gravity Falls, "Carpet Diem" ;P).  It also adds a layer of responsibility we haven't seen yet in the show or this story.

Either way, I'm looking forward to more :D.  Well done.

P.S. If you haven't seen Gravity Falls, you might want to give it a look ;).

This is also my headcanon and will be mentioned in this story! :)

>It also adds a layer of responsibility we haven't seen yet in the show or this story.
And this is another reason why  this conversation was written in the first place: to hint  Spike's search for answers that were left unanswered by Twilight.

>If you haven't seen Gravity Falls, you might want to give it a look ;) (Wink)
I will take a look in Autumn, when I will return to the land of wifi and darkness ;)

:iconthewayfaringwanderer:
I'm certainly looking forward to Twi and Spike's talk!

Lastly, the Land of WiFi and Darkness is indeed a treacherous place where unspeakable evils lurk and lie in wait.  However, deep within its cavernous recesses, great treasures can be found.  Gravity Falls is a glimmering hoard of rubies, sapphires, and mountains of 24-karat gold.  Okay maybe I'm exaggerating, but it's one of my favorite cartoons of all time.  If you're into deep mysteries, clever yet relatable writing, awesome yet flawed characters, familial interaction, great atmosphere, beautiful animation, and stellar voice acting, then this show is for you.

Warning!!!  What ever you do, do not look the show up on YouTube or any place where you'll get spoiled in the thumbnail.  A huge part of the show is it's mystery factor.  So whatever happens...remember the words of Rarity.

Exactly my point, you don't how old Spike is either, you're just judging him by his size.
Reply
:icondsana:
dSana Featured By Owner May 13, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
His size has nothing to do with it. I judge his mental age based on how I perceive his character, needs, fears and the way he sometimes acts; I judge it based on what L. Faust, Big Jim and MeghanMcCarthy has said on different occasions and the fact that he's hitting puberty only now. But really, all of this is not really important. The important thing is that this is my headcanon. And the thing about headcanons is that it's pretty much what you want it to be.

:iconsonblazy:
sonblazy Featured By Owner May 13, 2018
Well I disagree with that headcanon, because even though Spike will hit puberty after he gets his wings, he still won't get taller. 
So for all we know, he might just be the only dragon with a growth problem, like Scootaloo being the only pegasus who can't fly.

:icondsana:
dSana Featured By Owner May 13, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Well, feel free to disagree! I based my headcanon on watching the show and reading what people who write for it has to say.

There are plenty of scenes that can illustrate the idea that he is not growing up the same ways ponies around him do. And while idea that Spike has "mental age", is a youngling or that dragons age slower than ponies has been actually said & the idea that Spike has some growth problems - unlike Scots issues with flying -  has never hinted in any possible way AFAIA and so it's not part of my headcanon.

But why assume that mighty dragons, whose "naps" lasts a 100 years, must develop in the same way as short-lived mamals in the first place? They have nothing in common. When dragon finishes his nap the entire generation of ponies might die.

Finally, why does it trouble you so much? My stories are meant to show Spike as very complex character who has snark and intelligence of an adult and needs of a youngling. If this is not for you that I am sure you can find plenty stories that are about him being an adult or teen.
