And Magic Is Heresy by NCMares And Magic Is Heresy by NCMares
"Please." the xenos looked up with hopeful violet eyes.
Behind that hope was fear, however. The being that stood before it was no longer the faithful student she loved, but she was down there, somewhere.

She had to be.

"Will you accept my friendship?"

Twilight Sparkle grimaced as a thousand memories came rushing to the forefront of her mind. Memories of the old world. Of Equestria. Of her friends and the love they shared.
For years she'd been haunted by the inability to complete the phrase. She'd forgotten what friendship was. Now she remembered.

She finally opened her eyes and Celestia visibly shuddered under her glare.

"I'm sorry, Princess."

The bolt pistol clicked.

"But friendship is magic..."

--

Am I a heretic for drawing pony/40k? Maybe, but trust me when I say that it's a lot of fun-*BLAM!* This is also fueled heavily by the rule of cool. Should a xenos even be able to touch lovely commissar threads? Probably not, but I think she looks pretty darn awesome in them! If the rule of cool doesn't satisfy you, however, then my condolences. :[

Inspired by this fan-fic.

Twilight's considered a sanctioned psyker by the Imperium, so unicorn "magic" isn't what she's referring to. :) Oh, and this is probably best viewed on a monitor. It's a tad dark. GRIM-dark! >:]

Oh snap - that's the number three slot in the drawfriend! Thank you, guys! :D www.equestriadaily.com/2014/08…

Can't say I approve of 40k ponies...but this was extremely well done. Worth a favorite.

Nonsense! That's just sanctioned psyker tricks, hardly what the Imperium considers magic. :dummy:

Amazing almost beyond the point of comprehension. The lighting and atmosphere of this piece are both PHENOMENAL. As a testament to the quality of your workmanship, I have almost no knowledge of either fandom represented here, and I was still knocked clean off of my feet by this. Twilight's expression is just plain bone chilling, and she looks surprisingly terrifying in that outfit. Anywho, to make a long story short, I bow to your amazing skill. Well drawn, and well done!

If Magnus had stayed loyal he would have totally advocated for this, after the Thousand Sons copied and Blood Ravened every single scrap of magical knowledge from Equestria first, of course.

Magic does not make one a Heretic. There are MILLIONS of Psychers in the Imperium, so I can't see why Twilight would do this XD

Psyche aint magic. They use their mental capabilities... 

they dont swap apples into oranges... - THATS stuff, warp powers would do... so BURN IN TARTARUS; WITCH! 
ps. or just be locked away, next to that other fella... since this is a kids show and we cant go to harsh on you because of that... (lucky you i guess...) :I

Woa woa woa, wait a sec man, Psyche powers are Warp powers, psykers draw energy from the warp to perform their tricks and stuff so you can't just simply draw a line between both since they have such a need of each other that both are practically one. Also, there is a branch of the psychic powers called Biomancy which consists in the manipulation or alteration of biological energy and processes, the fact that these powers are mainly used for combat purposes doesn't mean that they cannot be used for, using your example, turning apples into oranges and many other applications that involves various types of food. So, since both your statements were proven incorrect, i declare my mission... Accomplished.

Visit the Lexicanum more often brother, you shame our kind in both universes.

That kind of magic is (sometimes) cool by the Imperium. :) Sanctioned psykers and all, like you said. I figure Twi's talking more about the 'true' magic that the elements were packing and all that jazz. It's all a kind of play on this (incredibly gorey) image. :dummy:
