MLP - Iris page 1

The idea for this has sat in my head for well over a year now. I was simply listening to music one day, and all of a sudden, 'Iris' by Goo goo Dolls came on. And for some reason, the first thing that came to mind was that the song fit Cotton and Greg to the letter. Ever since then, I've wanted to draw a comic of the two set to this song, but I always kept running into various interruptions or distractions. But now it's done, and here it is.

First page is pretty introspective on Greg's part. He's a little bit apprehensive and a little awed at the free care and affection he's receiving, but soon finds that he likes it.

Greg: Mama, what's an Angel?
Mama: An Angel is a very special kind of pony. One who you would never expect, but is always watching out for you.

This originally started out as Greg being an Angel, but that would have taken too long. Suffice to say, he is a Holy Pony.

I freaking love that song and good job using the drawing in connection.

I was thinking of "can you feel the love tonight," but this works just as well since where at the beginning of the on.

You haven't read two of the stories on FIMfiction based on this couple.
merrypaws's avatar
Oh? Could you give me a link to those, please?

Greg and Cotton are a very unique couple for sure. :D

also, i can't read this without the song flooding my head (and, on occasion, i'll hear it when it's not playing. like a musical ringing of the ears). I...I think i might...*sniff*'s just so...bitter-sweet...*sniff*

this (by which i mean Cotton & Greg) needs a fanfic. NOW! (if this is based off of an existing fanfic, my deepest apologies. i have no idea in the slightest what for, but a gentleman always apologizes)

I'm actually working on one right now (gotta finish another fic first). And in the meantime, I managed to find one on fimfiction: [link]

Haven't heard the song in what seems like a decade, yet I recognized it from the second panel. You took one of my favorite songs and set it for a changeling. You have no idea how happy this made me. I know they say the internet has everything, but you still can't expect to find a cherished memory crossed with a current obsession. It would have been one thing if it were just ponies, but I happen to identify with being a changeling. I can say I'm happy, but this is one of those times I can't find an adjective powerful enough to describe just how happy I am. Thank you.

*blush* Awww, shucks.
I'm happy that this made someone else happy. And I can totally understand the part of old and new favorites mixing, I've had a few of those moments myself.

Insert your "Heart Nom" comic after this scene.
