.: Colours : Beata :. by Rainb0wTwister F2U Pink Diamond Pagedoll by engare


Two of four
The last two kids of four from New Year (aka Firework) and her mate, Prince Jadefang. 

For the pinky, her name would be close to Aurora or the like. As for the youngest, I haven't found a suiting name for her yet.

Though our pink alicorn here; she has a major self-esteem problem. Dealing with most of her problems on her own or with the colt next door that isn't phased in the slightest from her appearance. Treating her like a regular pony unlike all the other citizens afraid of the wrath of changlings on their heads. Her form of magic is manifesting love into a source of food. She can create flower petals that once consumed, reinvigorate a changling 4x more than just feeding off of another's love can do. As for the regular pony to consume, it creates an infatuation that whoever shares the petal with someone else and they eat from the same..they find affection in each other. Rather than just love at first sight.

Our little blondey bb: She's got the most powerful magic of all; but has never used it before. She ultimately can turn into a beast, feeding off of the magic and love of others in a sense of Tirek. A single breath of her toxic magic can eliminate ponies like a plague. Very dangerous.
She's Pandora's favorite and has always taken Pan's side to protect her from the other 2 siblings who refuse to understand her like she does. Loves to pounce on her big brother; but retreats to solitude once Pandora had striken her and refused to listen to her sister until she wept for the first time in decades.
Twins x 2
Oi vei. A LOT of story with these plus 2 more kids.
These are the twins, 2 of the 4 heirs to the kingdom of the night and changelings (before the new season came out with the reformity)

I can't remember the name of our boy, but the girl is Pandora. Seen before here:…
The boy is a natural, stoic leader. Has to cleanup the mess that Pandora has caused and try to reason with their people to reform and reverse her damage caused. 
Has no time for love or friends. Only real friends he has are his siblings. Although a certain orange pegasus had caught his attention once leaving the castle grounds for once. Constantly lived in the torment of Pandora's teasing of her 2 minutes of being older. 
Builds weapons and tries to harness the small ability of creating pyrotechnics like his mother can.

Pandora is as her name discerns. An instant mistake to her people. Although she is deeply loved by her family, the youngest sister most of all, she cannot seem to gain favor in the eyes of everyone else. Looking almost like a spitting image of Chrysalis, she soon enough accepts it and finds a way to learn her form of magic. As much as to Pan's father's attempts to keep her away from it all. 
Her magic is in charming the ponies around her and feed off of their love for her. Creating a harem of ponies in a sense with no sense of feeling guilty of it. Minus the moment her youngest sister finds out about such secrets she kept from her. 
The three babies
Offspring from Hibiscus and Electric Blue (:icondave89898989: 's baby)

One little no name, but the rest have names!
Tai-Ro: Oldest, pegasus, dedicated to serving in the army of Equestria. (He has a tough time there and comes out WAY different)
Kiara: Youngest, earth pone. Constantly living in the shadow of her two older siblings. Has no natural talents (that she knows of) other than being a pest to everyone she tries to befriends.
Lil no name: Middle, pegasus. Always in awe at Tai-Ro's strength and courage. Loves him so much (almost borderline obsession) but Tai takes it in stride and understands. She likes flowers, but moreso in apothecary. Trying to find a cure to fix what happened to Tai-Ro. (Will be revealed sometime!)

Also there is a reason lil no name's mane style is very similar to Shimmer's. Seeing as Shimmer was the one to get them together; and the grey earth pony was baby sitting one night. She tried pigtails at the request of the little one. Insta fell in love, minus her stubborn little alfalfa hair that refuses to be tamed!
Tia and Rocket
Eh the whole shipping thing I was working on for Shimmershine is strange rn.
But I love the kids too much to erase them so they'll exist! Hehe

Tia is a little rebellious bb while Rocket is quiet. Quite interested in space like his mother; but more on -getting- there than observing from far away.
Obvious from the curls on (Corina / Silversong??) these are Sara's kids.
Sara had met a fine stallion on one of her singing tours. 
I have yet to find a name for our little boi here, so any suggestions are welcome!
Color scheme for his hair might change too; not sure yet.

Anyways! Corina is adventurous and loves to hangout with her cousin Junebei. 
Her brother on the other hand is more self absorbed in watching ants crawl on a log or sit in on the conversations with his mother and aunt.
