MLP:YL - Guards of Every Size

'Get of my back, Grubber.'
'Onwards, my little pony!'
'Just because we are friends doesn't mean I can't zap you.'
'I get off right away, ma'am.'

Tempest for years didn't understand why Grubber wanted to be a guard and why the Princess (Twilight) let him. Everypony would think the little guy after the fall of the Storm King would be happy to go and do whatever he wanted. Not serve under someone else again. Tempest thought maybe he just wanted the shiny life that comes with being a guard and her right hoof. She didn't know what the Princess and Grubber knew. He wanted to stay around Tempest, so he could look out for her.

...But that doesn't mean he didn't enjoy the castle's compfy beds too.


------------------------------NOTE:

No idea why, but I have a soft spot for Grubber, so I had to put him in the AU as Tempest right hoof (and yes, he has his own little armor).
Maybe because I really like to draw him, that could be a reason:P

I have 2 headcanons for Grubber's fate after the movie:


In one of them, Tempest and Grubber leave Equestria to spread the news of the Storm King's defeat, however Tempest ends up returning upon hearing about Twilight's coronation, whilst Grubber stays behind to rule the Storm Kingdom.


In another, Tempest and Grubber both return after bringing peace to the lands south of Equestria and they both take part in the final battle against Lord Tirek, Queen Chrysalis, and Cozy Glow.

G: To infinity, and Beyond!

TS: Grubber, that's the wrong franchise. There's one more little thing...

G: What's that?

TS: I've magically grounded my uniform so I don't get shocked.

G: I don't get it.

TS: If you don't move, you *will* get it. Got it?

I came to the headcanon that Grubber was kind of a runt, seen as useless and passed around through the Storm King's forces because of his size and aversion to combat, until he landed in Tempest's forces, where she sort of saw him as a kindred spirit of sorts, outcasts among their kind, so she kept him around.
After the fall of the Storm King, I like to think they'd eventually develop a similar relationship to Twilight and Spike. Not just comrades in arms or friends, but family.
Hahaha, well done! You artwork is amazing!

well, i mean, why have a saddle integrated into your armor if not to have a passenger? gg tempest, you did it to yourself.

This is so stupidly cute, it kinda reminds me of me and my younger cousin in some weird way

"... I have a soft spot for Grubber"

I know, right? For me,they work so well together, a cute two-creature team.

My logic is that Tempest would STILL need help with certain things due to her broken horn, so in this case Twilight decides to put Grubber in the same "#1 Assistant" category as Spike is to Twilight herself...
