Sunset Slither by mayorlight Sunset Slither by mayorlight
Not too long ago, I was watching a video of the Mr. Grinch song number from the original How The Grinch Stole Christmas. When I saw the scene of the Grinch slithering on the floor like a snake, I inexplicably imagined Sunset Shimmer doing the same thing. I just had to put it on paper!

Penciled and inked by hand, then colored in Photoshop CS1.

Looking at this gave me an idea for a story about Sunset Shimmer trying to steal Christmas from CHS :XD: 

With Snips and Snails as the Max to her Grinch :lol:

Wow. Looking back at this piece now, I find it difficult to believe Sunset began as a villain...

I don't think I'd like to see her slither like that.

You're a mean one, Sunset Shimmer.
You are worse than I can take.
When you slither down the hallway
You remind me of a snake,
Sunset Shimmer.
And I'm willing to bet that your hair colour is fake.

She slunk to the Ice box

Sunset: Slunk!

Yes, that's definitely a slither! You really have captured that flowing motion well.

I was tempted to curve her head, but looking at it now, I realize that just having her eyes look in that direction achieves a similar effect.

I can't help but reinact the whole special in my head, replacing the Grinch with Marceline from Adventure Time and replace Max with a sad Pinkie Pie, all the Whos are characters from Sonic and Rayman and those Disney Afternoon shows and lastly have Celestia as the narrator.
