Aunt Holiday and Aunt Lofty by PixelKitties Aunt Holiday and Aunt Lofty by PixelKitties
With the release of the new Ponyville Mysteries book, it's semi-official that Scootaloo lives in Ponyville with her lesbian aunts Holiday and Lofty.  While their descriptions in the book is a bit spare, I decided to make them a proper family photo!

I imagine Holiday as a travel agent and a foodie. Lofty is a quilter and her favorite song is Fire Water Burn by Bloodhound Gang.

Here's their cutie marks if you need them!

If holiday and lofty were appearing for season 9, I've always wonder what will they sound like.

I kind of think Holiday has a bit of a world-weary, slightly upper-crust voice.  Lofty probably sounds very perky and is always slightly out of breath from excitement!

Perhaps holiday could be voiced by Alex Borstein, and lofty could be voiced by Megan Cavanagh.

I'm not sure if Holiday and Lofty will appear in the TV show or not, but regardless, their status as Scoots's aunts and lesbian couple is canon to me for one big reason: Beyond being an official source, Vogel and Dubuc co-wrote the Ponyville Mysteries series.

As for the image itself, it's wonderful. Beautifully composed with canvas-popping colors and a tinge of brilliance to create an inviting atmosphere. Scootaloo standing in between Holiday and Lofty with a big smile on her face tells the audience they mean a lot to her, and she cares for them deeply. The two adults themselves have very balanced pastel combinations, too, enough to indicate they're an item while also standing out individually.

Altogether, beautiful work! :D

Just an FYI- I'm not super vigilant about my DA but if I find out you're harassing people and being a turd, your comments will be hidden and reported. 

Disagreement is fine, don't be an ass. 

Also, don't eat paint chips.

I'm curious what BronyVideoGamer's issue is.  Are they homophobic or something? It's been confirmed by the author. Their aunts are lesbians. Doubters/haters need to deal with it. Unless someone is some kind of gay hater they shouldn't have an issue with her having loving supporting aunts no matter what their relationship is. If they are a gay hater they need to get over it and learn how to be a kinder person. The shows about love and kindness. That includes not being a bigot.

Reply to BronyVideoIdiot, for you're so brave you blocked me so I won't be able to reply you:

Being homophobic is more than an opinion. And if you think that thinking that homosexuality is bad is smart, you should check that pink thing inside your head.


I do wonder why idiots overrun the internet, but you could tell me, as you're part of it

I wonder if the idea that Holiday and Lofty are lesbians might be the reason Scootaloo never mentions them. Not because she doesn't love them.

But because she's afraid she might blow their secret out to others. And they might not want it out there.

Equestria is obviously beyond that kind of nonsense given how accepting and loving and kind Celestia, Cadence and Shining Armor are. Sure-they WERE prejudiced towards the Changelings but for good reason. While ponies aren't always the most open minded the fact is given most of their society is female LGBT ponies would be the rule rather than the exception.

They may not say they're gay, but that doesn't stop Hasbro from using Holiday and Lofty does it? If nothing else, just to put down the theory that Scootaloo is homeless.

Would be awesome in the show.

" just to put down the theory that Scootaloo is homeless."

It was never about her being homeless. It was about her being a minor living by herself.

molly87 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2017
Which still falls flat when you think about it. Aside from whatever is up with her wings, Scootaloo looks too well off to be living by herself constantly.

So something is up. And I think this is it.

Faust meant her to have parents who were just busy a lot and Scoots was just really good at getting away from her sitters. Now that she's not a blank flank anymore she's earned a degree of freedom.

Loved these characters as soon as they were introduced. Definitely should cut down on the Orphanloo stories, which are rather old and tired by this point.

It's really sad that because the show is under Hasbro jurisdiction, the show being funded only to make more people want to buy the toys, that they can't be more open about lgbtq characters as it will negatively effect sales. I'm incredibly happy that, even if it's not explicitly stated in the merchandise that the aunts are gay, it has been confirmed unofficially that they are! I hope they can be more open in the future, as the world becomes more understanding and less hateful. 

Also I love the name Lofty, reminds me of the first mlp animated series. I really enjoy when they pay tribute to the old series in small ways like that.

Yeah, it's a shame Hasbro, unlike certain other companies doesn't exactly have the nerve to explicitly put lesbian or gay characters in their shows. Then again, a certain IDW Transformers comic has a gay couple with Rewind and Chromedome so you never know...
