I thought a lot what kinda direction I wanna go with this year's christmas drawing. As my past ones already kinda were AU-ish, I decided to go full AU with this one.

As I probably going to spend most of my time with my family on Christmas Eve and Day, in before that I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!:heart: Hope you guys have a wonderful time~

Wait. *sigh* It's just now that I see this one? Oh well, better later than never. You deserve all the love for your amazing works you've done over the years. I don't know how many hours you've spent for drawing this one, but it must have been at least 10-15 if not. What I love the most about your pieces is that you actually make a scene, with lots of small details in a style that I enjoy watching daily. You really put a lot of love in your works and it shows.

Awesome work on this one. And despite the very lateness, Happy holidays.

BTW, in your AU does Pinkie remained in contact with the reindeer from "The Best Gift Ever"?  Just asking.

I'm pleased that you've included Gabby into the group shot. I always did enjoy her chemistry between Spike.

At that point in the image, they are all pretty obviously adults.

It’s still like your grandma dating two young adults in college and it’s gross. Why do people act like aging up characters automatically makes everything acceptable?

Eh, I stick with the "Half age + 7 rule" for age differences. I know I have dated both older men and women that I have enjoyed greatly in my late 20s.  Kinda what I put here. Though now that I am almost 40, I know peeps under the age of 25 or so I really like, "No... you are too young for me." Its one of those things that just how life deals sometimes. I am strongly opposed to real jailbait stuff. Like if Spike and Gabby were really still in their late teens. But here, I was thinking they are in their 20s. Then again, it was a fleeting thought. I totally like the idea of Gabby and Spike getting serious as they get older while Rarity settles into finally not having a "pony chasing dragon" after her tail too. While still being close friends.

They kinda look like teens here though too. I kinda figured Rarity would just... continue never being into Spike as originally intended since it's just a "schoolboy crush" type of thing and shouldn't actually come true.

That's really lovely illustration, and fantastic work on each character, whethever it's the all-powerful dorky Twilight in her regalia, AJ who's having none of the snowball-related antics, Shining Armor with his cool beard or Fluttershy and Discord simply chilling in comfy embrace, they all look so nice and cute creating very wholesome picture.

Fantastic work.
