Ooh dear... to be honest, it doesn't surprise me some older ponies would be racist towards dragons here - and combining that with the bullying Spike received from the school children, it makes me want to give him a big hug.
Such negativity. . . . And people wonder why there is so much conflict in the world. They don't know anything about Spike and already they're quick to pass him off as some sort of heartless monster. If you ask me, the real monsters are the shadowy creatures with the mean glares. Good job on that panel, by the way.
Little Twilight looks very cute with those flowers. And I can't help but wonder if they foreshadow her element of Harmony.
I'll end this comment on this message. In the world of Albus Dumbledore: ". . . it matters not what a person is born, but what they grow to be."
Ah, the Canterlot Elite. Such fine examples of Ponies....Really explains why someone like the obviously evil Chancellor Neighsay is in such a high position.
Makes one wonder what would happen if the Dragons ever send an ambassador to Canterlot.... "So what exactly makes you think you can act like that towards us?" "Because I'm Whimsey Weatherbe, Ambassador of Dragon Lord Ember...and now you've pissed me off."
