Is that a mom shadow?

And is it rooted in Spike's actual dragon mom or in his imagination of what she would be like?

More like Crystal Heart's projection of her, as she was since Spike doesn't know yet who he's talking to.

despite the green text, this feels different than the other stuff from earlier, this feels soft and caring as opposed to harsh and cold. Look forward to seeing what's going on.

Well I just binge-read this whole thing for the past two hours. Impressive stuff. I love how you openly gloat about tormenting your readers. Reminds me of me.

I'm still gathering torches and pitchforks in case anything happens to Spikey-Wikey, though.

The best/worst cliffhangers are the ones that end up being not so bad. In one episode of an anime, one of the protagonists walked off the edge of a cliff, and that's where the episode ended. In the next episode, it turns out she was fine because the drop was only like 4 feet and she landed on her feet. She still wasn't happy, because her foot landed right in horse poop.

Is that by chance his mother? Spirit from the Crystal Heart? No other explanation makes sense for what other being could exist alongside his own mind.

I did not see that shadow at first, so it left me wondering who was speaking.  But then I noticed, and suddenly I realized.

I knew that gold gem would be important.  For one thing, it's the only gem that hasn't yet gone dark.  It still glimmers bright in the surrounding blackness.  That must be Spike's hope. . . .

I'm kinda hoping that's the spirit of his birth mother somehow. I'm probably wrong though...

That's not going to happen sadly. That God awful Sludge episode with the cliché fake parent showed that the writers well and truly don't give a shit about Spike.

yep, when i saw the leak i was hoping something good, about that character, still we have good moments of Spike, Twilight and even Smolder. the mane six just were kinda there, still good.  but it could be more.
then again this is a kid's show not a 90's anime, so something its something.
Reply
:iconthis-is-amazing-work:
Yeah, but that wasn't what people were really looking forward too. And kids show or not, that doesn't excuse bad writing. That's just a lazy excuse of "I don't need to write good for kids. kids are dumb duhh."

I think I understand how Spike feels right now.
As the mysterious voice says, Twilight's love is the light in the darkness.
For me it was my will that helped me out of the darkness.
Ok, now I've got goose bumps from my own comment.
