Woo, where to begin? This is a picture I had to make because I can't stand all the Scootabuse that goes on in the fandom. What's going on here you might ask? Rainbow Dash is adopting Scootaloo. Made a minor change to the background by making it daytime outside.
Document text: This Document hereby certifies that Rainbow Dash is now the legal guardian and mother of Scootaloo through the process of adoption, and shall hence-forth have the care of her. Mayor Mare Rainbow Dash (and you can't see it because the fold but Princess Celestia signed as well)
Wow, over 10k views and almost 400 fav's, this means a lot to me you guys.
I've not read or seen any of the stuff that's been around lately except for a few of the stuff that pops up in things like Ponies the Anthology with stuff like the chicken jokes. I do find it amusing that recently it has been confirmed that Lauren Faust intended for her to be unable to fly ever. thanks for the ~<3
This made me cry. It's so sweet and heartwarming. It looks like Rainbow Dash is about to cry herself! And I like that Princesses Celestia and Luna are there as well, as if to grant their royal blessing to the adoption. Rainbow Dash truly is a real-life Mare Do Well.
I could see this actually happening on the TV show if Scootaloo really was an orphan. I have a fan art idea where Derpy officially adopts Dinky in a similar scene, basing it on the popular fan idea that they are mother and daughter.
the ages of the ponies is kind of a grey area with no real definitive numbers given (real horses are fully grown within a couple years) and maybe she's more like an adoptive sister (which actually is what happened in the show) but yeah who knows, I just wanted some cute ScootaDash pic. glad you like it. ~<3
Yeah in shows like this with anthro characters I just give them human ages as I just see them as humans in animal form. Well she didn't really adopt her, more became her mentor and surrogate sister (great episode, don't see myself as a brony but like the show, then one can like Star Trek and not be a Trekky), heck I've had friends like that.
Her background hopefully would be in season 5 and I hope it's not too depressing but I think a little drama would be a good thing.
No problem, I like positive art when one finds stuff no different from the real thing I hear from my nurse mother all the time.
