Suspension of Disbelief by Lopoddity Suspension of Disbelief by Lopoddity

sorry to be quiet lately, ya'll. Besides starting at a new job (which is going nicely), I needed to take my brother to the emergency room twice. He's doing fine now, but the doctor thinks he may have lupus, so stay tuned for the next episode of why-can't-my-family-catch-a-damn-break-seriously-did-we-piss-off-a-witch


anyway, in lighter news, :iconroboheather: sent me in a really nice batch of ideas (thank you Heather, you're a gem!). One being that Smokescreen and Phoenix are best buds (Fire Bros 2.0!) She had this to say:

 "Had a sudden thought that Smoky and Phoenix miiiight actually make super good friends. I like to think they met when Smoky happened upon a young Phoenix and Jam Sandwich being bullied and mocked by a group of mean girls (both of them always felt awkward and unfeminine compared to other fillies their age, and were often targets because of it), and before the situation can escalate into an actual fight (Nix is fluffed out, wings spread to shield her crying friend, teeth bared, and body getting tense to leap), Smoky decides to help them out by changing into a giant, hairy, terrifying spider to scare the fur off their bullies. He comes back in his normal form after gleefully chasing the brats half way across Ponyville, and introduces himself to the startled girls. While Smoky and Jam do enjoy a casual, friendly relationship through their mutual bestie, it's with Phoenix that he eventually develops an unbreakable bond with.

Though their relationship as adults may appear to be a typical dude-bro one (and it IS. Wrestling, getting hammered together, watching sports, sparring practice, checking out chicks, affectionate head butting, playfully teasing the other, casually going over the best torture methods over beer and bar nuts, ect), they really do love each other and have very snuggly, affectionate moments in private too. They think nothing of it to sometimes sleep in the same bed, or have painful hangover snuggles on the couch. Smoky also honestly swears by his bestie's skill in blacksmithing, and refuses to use any weapons besides the superior ones she makes him. "


so here are the fire bros watching what they thought was an action movie, but turned into a forced romance fest at the end, booooo

on a design note, i decided to give phoenix blue eyes. i think a splash of blue helps her look more at home with her siblings~




more on these two:

While I do hope the best for your brother, Lupus isn't fun. My dad has it, not pretty what it does to people.

Onto the art, Phoenix speaks my mind, every other romcom does this, it's annoying.

I'm admiring your drawing skills honestly. Look at all those details!
The only thing that surprised me is Phoenix' appearance. Don't get me wrong, she looks very beautiful, but she doesn't seem masculine enough to confuse her for a guy and it seemed her problem/something to deal with as a teenager and adult. Is it still canon then?

More Phoenix Vogue!! Maybe a hypo au child(carried by V), I’d see them with a tiny little girly son who takes lots after Moondancer and doubles as an exotic model (lennyface)

oof, there's gonna be a flood of Nix x Smokey shippers coming-
but seriously, it's great seeing a close, platonic male/female relationship. it's really annoying seeing people going "I ship it!!" when 1) Nix and Smokey have never been shown together before now and 2) Nix was clearly stated as a lesbian. :/

I think what's also annoying is girls can't have guy friends without everyone thinking they are together or being asked if they are together you can have guy friends and NOT be together.

Smokescreen: scanning for compatibility... scanning... scanning...
Compatibility percentage, 15%
Scanning for bullshit... scanning... scan- bullshit detected waiting for platonic "besties" response...
Phoniex: Exactly, man. talk about unbelievable.

Every time I see him all I see is terminator
