-Glitzi has a deep-fried Tennessee twang to contrast Magnolia's airy Georgia debutante drawl
-popular night time singer at several of Gladmane's Las Pegasus clubs, sounds a bit like this . Glitzi's special talent is singing~
-Glitzi is a rather impressive amateur chef. Getting on her good side means being subjected to all manner of delicious fatty comfort food- after all, Glitzi believes the best way to a pony's heart is through their arteries.
-has a vested interest in Magnolia, keeps tabs on her. Whenever they cross paths Glitzi will brag a LOT about her success and riches compared to Magnolia's paltry Ponyville beauty salon.....but it's possible this is a misguided attempt to impress Maggie. It is one of Magnolia's deepest darkest secrets that she and Glitzi used to date.....thus their interactions are always charged with the passive-aggressive semi-flirty tension of salty exes. Neither of them is as over their breakup as they pretend to be.
-Bruce is so terrified of this woman you don't even know
-Glitzi despises Jam Sandwich. It's an easy thing to do, considering Glitzi's father seems oh-so-eager to dote on this skinny twig nothing of a mare from Ponyville and ignore his own daughter. Glitzi enjoys nothing more than sending Jam on pointless and banal errands (finding a needle in a haystack, capturing Glitzi's horrible and bitey runaway bichon frise, etc). Jam is uncertain if refusing would earn her the ire of Glitzi's father, so she often buckles, and frustrates Glitzi to no end when she succeeds at every task.
-Daddy Gladmane rarely talks to Glitzi except to chastise her spending/scold her for doing something stupid
2.) Glitzi and her darlin' Magnolia. (quote is shamelessly taken from the old Batman cartoon)
Suri most certainly didn't plan on getting knocked up by Gladmane, but whatever, it's cool, she always kinda wanted to try the whole domesticity thing. Gladmane was wholly uninterested in being a family, but Suri didn't need him anyway. She was gonna be a fierce, gorgeous, and responsible single mom, because there's nothing Suri Polomare can't do! She quickly got to work creating (plagiarizing) whole lines of mommy merch- clothing, baby toys, essential oils, the works. And she found a lot of success! One problem, though.......it was getting awfully exhausting to push product and keep in contact with her suppliers with this whole......baby thing in the way. She'd kinda assumed a baby would be like a doll you could dress up, or one of those tiny dogs you could cram into a purse. Nobody said anything about spit-up and colicky tummies and sleepless nights....
note on "sugar britches": for those of y'all not in the know, it's a term of endearment for one's girlfriend/wife/mistress, or a way of saying someone has a sweet ass. Gladmane obviously has no such inappropriate feelings toward his daughter, but the guy does have some difficulties viewing women as anything more than sexual objects. Combine that with his disdain for his daughter (whom he views as an annoying parasite, much like her long-fled mother), and most of his "fond" nicknames for Glitzi end up having this sort of backhanded, demeaning slant to them. Glitzi takes it all in stride.....or at least is good at pretending to.
OMG I love Glitzi so much!!! I just wanna hold her and strangle her piece of shit parents!
I love all of your stuff Lop! I've been a fan of you for years and every piece of artwork or story telling is better than the last. I don't know how you do it!
So, they dated? That makes me wonder what kind of relationship they had, the dynamics, or WHAT drew them to each other to date amd lead to the eventual breakup? Do you have notes on this too, Lop? If not that's fine, but I would love to see you explore this a bit more in the future.
I really like how you've reimagined your original version of Gladys into Glitzi! Basing her off Dolly Parton to parallel Gladmane being based off Elvis is genius! I really like how she tries to be friendly and kind, but since she never had good role models for showing that, she comes across as shallow and insincere in her actions, ending up acting a lot like her father's fake cordiality. Her relationships with Magnolia and Jam are both interesting, how she kinda sees her and Maggie as friends even though Maggie can't really stand her (the Harley Quinn line fits her so well ), while hating Jam even though she and Jam would probably get along swimmingly if not for Glitzi being jealous of Jam being favored by her father. Looking forward to seeing more of her!
What has me thinking is her nose and hooves. In this she has cloven hooves, two toes. Horses/Ponies have a singular toe per foot. Horses/Ponies also have a mild 'point' to their nose and nostrils abit back. Cows have 'flatter' noses. Makes me wonder if she's part cow! :D
Unicorns in my story have cloven hooves. Glitzi has distant unicorn blood in her family line, hence the hooves. It's just not possible for cattle and ponies to interbreed in my verse, not unless there's strong magic involved.
I love the Harley Quinn reference and I love Glitz sm! I love everytime you make a new character they are always so amazing and have such a great story to them! I also love her new design a lot better than her other one in my opinion
