Bound by Lopoddity Bound by Lopoddity
"Mm. Never thought I'd marry a thieving poacher."

"Joke's on you, love. See, I just poached the best damned catch in all the natural world- and her name is Radhi bloomin' Carcharodon."

Radhi leaned close to nuzzle him, then let out a sigh. "You know, you're halfway charming when you want to be, Buck."

"So I guess you could say I stole your heart?"

"Urgh, I take it back. Is it too late to undo the ceremony?"

Buck nuzzled her back, and felt her smile against him. "Ha. You knew what you were signing up for."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a loooot of ya'll really wanted to see Buck and Radhi's wedding. who am i to denyyy

notes

-Buck and Radhi returned to her herd in the Maregeti to be wed. Radhi insisted Buck first obtain a blessing from her parents. Radhi's parents took one look at the stammering, nervous stallion, and dramatically declared that to properly earn Radhi's hoof, Buck would have to survive a number of traditional rite of passages, including catching a crocodile bare-hoofed, sitting atop a rocky outcropping until he received a vision from the ancient spirits, and defeating Radhi's grandmother in a wrestling match. Buck fiercely rises to each challenge, determined to prove himself as a good enough stallion for Radhi....

In the end, when he's panting, having barely scraped out a defeat against Radhi's gram-gram (that mare is jacked af), the zebras revealed that they made the whole thing up, partly as a means of family bonding, but mostly as a means of entertainment. Silly Buck, doesn't he know he's had their blessing all along? Eh, Radhi gave him a smooch for his troubles.

-Buck was surprised when, before the wedding, the herd members painted him with ceremonial zebra stripes (made with white river clay) to officially welcome him into their family.....He was told this was a great honor, but he's still not sure if the zebras were fucking with him or not. Radhi was snickering when she assured him they weren't....whatever, Buck thought he looked pretty dashing (and Radhi did too).

-During the ceremony, the tying of their cloths is meant to represent the love that binds them forever. The robes they wear are meant to become the first blankets they wrap their newborn foals in (hint hint, cue Radhi's parents coughing pointedly). Radhi's trying to play it cool but she definitely shed some stealth tears when nopony was looking

 i really appreciate the accurate nods to human cultures here and not just totally pulled out of a bodily orifice here.   this drawing more than others you have done really invokes the senses as if i am really there.  which is odd. but cool.  good work. 

ps buck looks radiant and beautiful, almost more than his wife.   :)

I'm not sure which I like more, the art or the dialogue you add to them. (not talking about just this image.)

I can't wait until you add some lore around dragon characters... unless you already have. Which if that is the case, I need to take a dive into your archives.

wait, i read the notes section and even though the tests were made up did he really see a vision while on the outcropping of rock?
also the part about the wedding robes being the first blankets for their newborn foals (nudge nudge, hint hint) is perfect!!
wonderful and beautiful picture and story!

Wait...they painted him with white stripes? So do zebras have white stripes, not black? :XD:
