I'm so tired you guys, but my brain suddenly demanded a sketch of RariTwi. SO UR GON' GIT A SKETCH OF RARITWI DAMNIT! >8C
Okay, no, but seriously. As much as I love this ship (Like, dude, I ship them so freakin' hardcore it's ridiculous) I'm not exactly the type to draw ships all that often. Soooooooo I'm awake for whatever reason, I had the itch to doodle that wasn't specifically for Bronycon ('cause I need a short break), so I doodled some RariTwi. C:
Please sorta-kinda ignore the errors in this one; I kinda doodled it pretty fast so I'm sure there are a few things off. But whatevs, it was a load of fun. So much so that I think I may do some AppleDash and PinkieShy.... Maybe.
ANYWAY, this particular doodle is a... continuation? Branchout? Spinoff? Whatever of a previous sketch I did of Twilight as a bodyguard. Whom is she the personal bodyguard of, you ask? Why, Queen/Princess (whichever you guys prefer works) Rarity, of course! 8D
This is based off of one of the many plotbunnies I have running around in my brain of an AU where Twily's a soldier/bodyguard/whatever, and Rarity's a queen/princess/royal. I just get a kick out of the image of Rarebear flirting with a rather flustered Twilight and the socially inept soldier not really knowing a reaction that's more appropriate than heavy make-out sessions. (ʘ‿ʘ)
..... Yeah. So I should probably get to sleep. BUT YOLO AND SLEEP IS FOR WIMPS AND SUCH.
But on a serious note, how exactly the scene plays out is up for you guys to decide. Hell, if you want, write a short little story or snippet for it (AKA: please write a snippet/short story 'cause I want some RariTwi fanfics dammit >:c ). Or not. And leave me hangin'. :/
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut anyway. If you have any questions feel free to ask. And thanks for takin' a look! ^.^
As goddesses, they have the power to interact with mortals at any given time however they are very selective in whom they choose to appear to. The most they typically do is give some sort of tangible sign that they are aware or that they are present, or if they approve of something. For example: if a bunch of ponies are praying in the Temple of the Moon and offering gifts, then Luna will sometimes allow a cool breeze that smells like the ocean and lavender blow through briefly as a show of gratitude or acknowledgement. Celestia may brighten the sun or the area will in general warm up regardless of whatever season the world is in. However, sometimes they will allow themselves to be seen when doing something profound, such as granting a prayer to a dying pony or maybe whisking a young foal from a dark place to somewhere more safe.
Those they deem worthy for something more specific but maybe not enough to actually show themselves to will get the "Mark of the Sisters", which is a physical showing of their cutie marks upon some sort of solid surface that isn't flesh. For example, the mark may appear on a sword, or on a stone pillar. This mark is unique in that they glow and have a faint magical pulse to it, and that makes it impossible to imitate it's authenticity (although many try). It's also the mark often used in the Temple of the Moon/Sun respectively, although a different crest is used for the Temples that are made in dedication to the both of them at the same time (typically every temple has the crest somewhere but may focus more on one sister more than the other. The temples that are dedicated to both are appropriately called a Temple of the Sisters.). That mark is similar to the cutie mark of their fusion here:
Now, those they deem worthy of their most direct of blessings (as well as making themselves visible to at least once) will bear their marking somewhere upon their body (the most common area being the forehead). The sisters typically choose their own "champion" (or one who bears their blessing) based on whatever they feel merits it, but they also can both give a blessing to the same individual at the same time. The mark indicating the direct blessing will show up similarly to how the cutie mark does and will shine brightly when the sisters feed their Champion their power. When not in use, however, the mark will disappear and cannot be seen by anyone, not even the owner of the mark, unless they are called upon once again. The sisters are also able to revoke their blessings should they deem their previously named champion to be no longer worthy to bear their mark.
The Mane 6 are some who has gained more than just a direct blessing from the sisters (but they don't know it, nor have they actually seen the goddesses yet). :3
"Twi, dear, have I ever mentioned how incredibly hot you look in your armor?" The snowy white unicorn slurred, batting her eyelashes seductively.
Twilight didn't know how to respond. She was a trained soldier, she'd never had much of an interest in romance.
"N-no, ma'am..." the bodyguard said, backing away a couple steps.
Rarity stepped closer, her eyes half closed and a sly smirk sneaking across her face. "Well you look divine, Twily." She murmured.
Now Twilight was really uncomfortable, that nickname was only used by those closest to her, like her brother Shining Armour and her parents. Her queen had never called her Twily before, it was either Twilight or Twi.
"Your Majesty, I-I do not think-"
"Shhh, don't spoil the moment, my dear..." Rarity leaned closer to her bodyguard, stretching her neck so that her muzzle was only a few inches away from Twilight's.
The soldier was blushing now, her ears moved back against her skull as her eyes darted around for an escape. Rarity's eyes were closed now as she moved even closer to Twilight.
"Y-your Majesty-!" Twilight squirmed, unsure of what to do.
Soon her muzzle was pressed against the queen's and Twilight found herself being pressed against the door.
Rarity's small, dainty hoof moved to rest nearly on top of Twilight's larger, iron-shod hoof and the smaller unicorn leaned further into the kiss.
Twilight was tense some time before she began to slowly lean part of her weight into Rarity, being careful that she didn't topple the petite unicorn with her larger bulk.
(That's it. I don't write a lot of slash or romance, but there's my attempt at it...you can make up what happens next)
But hey this is very well written! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this! C:
I'm actually not all that interested in that ship. It's cute, but unless they're apart of an Omniship with the rest of the Mane 6, I personally much rather them being bros. :/
As for RariTwi, I ship them pretty much however. They seem to be the type of couple who are very comfortable with one another, where they can simply sit around in each other's company without speaking and be completely at ease. Their personalities wouldn't change to accommodate the ship, if that's what you're asking, because they mesh pretty well with one another. You can even see it in the canon show, ESPECIALLY the fourth season, with how they'd interact if we're talking canon-based. Of course, I love the idea of Rarity flirting with Twilight and perhaps flustering her every now and again.
and Pinkie always seems to look out for Dash, and is even sort of dependant on her at times (the first thing that comes to
mind is the flight academy episode, with the gift package and Pinkie waiting at the mailbox for days on end). They're both
energetic and more playful than serious, and they tolerate each other better than the others seem to in the show. They even
have nicknames for each other that no one else in the show uses: Pinks and Dashie. I don't like bringing up anything too
specific in the show, because they're always ambiguous, since the show doesn't portray these characters in romantic
relationship with one another, but those points I brought up were what led me to shipping these two. My views on
relationships are that they won't always hold for any long period of time with only romance. A solid relationship needs a solid
backing to it, and that's where I see the bond they have as good friends coming into play.
It's cool that you ship Rarity and Twi, but I'm just not seeing it I was wondering if there was maybe a fanfic or something that
got you to ship these two, because I feel like it'd be somewhat of a challenge to do and would be interested if there was a good
As for RariTwi, it was the show itself that got me shipping them in the first place, not a fanfic. Speaking of, this fellow RariTwi shipper explains the ship quite well (since I obviously suck at it) so here's that if you're interested in reading it:
While fanfic wasn't what got me into shipping them, it certainly solidified it. The great thing about RariTwi is that, while not the most popular ship, it has a great turnaround for quality fanfiction. I honestly can't say there was a time where I've read a completely and ridiculously BAD RariTwi fanfic, and that's even including the more raunchy stuff. Secondly, there's almost no outright hatred toward it. The person either ships them, or doesn't ship them. It may just be me, but for whatever reason I have yet to encounter someone who's straight out said OMG I FREAKIN HATE THIS SHIP OMG. It's either "AW MAN I LOVE THIS SHIP TOO" or "It's cool if you ship it. I personally don't, but that's fine."
But yeah. c:
What's an omniship, by the way?
They look wonderfull together.
And thanks! ^.^
Also,out of Shipping: Do you have a character that you draw too much.For example I love drawing Twilight.She's just so cute and interesting to draw... Even though AJ is my favourite pony...I just draw Twilight SO MUCH. xD
As for your question, honestly, I don't think I have a character that I draw more often than the others. If I really think about it, I think the closest would probably be Rarity and Twilight. It isn't all that significant, how often I draw the two compared to the rest of the Mane 6, but I do draw them slightly more.
As for me, I'm just gonna enjoy your art. It's an interesting idea and I want to know more about it, especially Rarity's side of it. Their legs and bodies are a bit messy, but their expressions are wonderfully detailed.
Anyways, I'll talk to my sis and see what she can do.
And thanks! c:
