:bulletred: Comic cover: You are here!
:bulletblack: First page: It's here!

Cover (and the whole comic) commissioned by :iconlionel23: He asked me to draw it for the first time over 6 months ago... and now he finally managed to talk me into it :P With your help.
(remember that poll where I asked about a short comic story with Luna and Celestia?) Here is a cover for the story. I hope I will have enough patience to draw all the pages with Luna (she takes longer to draw than a 'standard' pony :P). As the cover suggests, it'll be a story about Celestia being ill, and Luna 'being a good sister'.
If you are wondering what's with my other stories? Some pages, and other works will come between pages for this one. I don't want to burn out by working on a single story.
And let's be honest, "Age (In)appropriate" or "Rarity, Get Your Sword" aren't extremely popular, or at least I got such a feeling, so I guess most people don't really miss them.

Imagine Celestia opens her mouth, and Luna says, "guess again."

Turns out, the medication on the bottle, Proguanil, is an anti-malaria drug. :D

Celestia's reaction gets me so much. Not to mention, your art style is REALLY good! It's like I'm actually reading an IDW comic!

I had no idea Celestia was afraid of needles.

Though I don't blame her for that.
Anti-Viruse's avatar
Dud she is looking at the anal thermometer.
Freddybear23's avatar
I know where you're going with this but how about we say she's afraid of mainly all the things Luna's holding.

Besides with those pills they might be past the expiration date anyway

This looks a lot like the official comics

I wanna see this continued.

Celestia: Please Luna! Not the needle! NOT THE NEEDLE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF MOTHER AND FOAL NOT THE BIG SCARY NEEDLE!!!
FangRoseTheHedgehog's avatar
I just hope that thermometer is meant for the mouth and not for where the sun don't shine (pun possibly intended)

Lolz... That's sick! :lol:

Maybe, but how about getting a video game loving colt to play the longest video game in Equestrian history simply because he was dating your love interest. Or how about throwing your editor out the window all because of one bad suggestion (thank you for doing that, by the way). Or how about revoking Big Mac's manhood? (Thank Celestia that didn't really happen)
Pony-Berserker's avatar
As for BigMac's manhood - it was never said if it happened or not. It could have been either a nightmare or... a haunting memory.
And Button could have stopped at any point but he was too stubborn to beat the game. It's mostly his own fault.
FangRoseTheHedgehog's avatar
Well I vote it was just a real bad nightmare for Big Mac (points hoof at Luna). And I did Google "Desert Bus" and found out that you can't pause it. Ever. If you do, the bus (or cart in this case) will run off the road and have to be towed on the road leading to Las Pegasus, all the way back to Appleoosa. In real time. And finally, if Button manages to beat the game, he'd win a trip on the road from Appleoosa to Las Pegasuson on a party carriage with the guests of his choice.

I guess he'd love to win that trip to Las Pegasus for him and Sweetie Belle.
Pony-Berserker's avatar
The game he plays is Desert Cart based on Desert Bus but it's not Desert Bus itself so there are no trip prizes :V
FangRoseTheHedgehog's avatar
True. But I was thinking in the sense that maybe Luna is offering a prize to anyone who could beat her high score in Desert Cart
