]The picture is quite blurry if you don't zoom it[

How to describe? Well, it's an ink work again with a little watercolor. It's Fluttershy under a bridge as I hope you can clearly see. So much has happened in a little time so I really couldn't spend too much time with this. So it's not the best of mine, but it's something.

That bridge and that old abandoned train yard are quite close to my flat, so sometimes I spend some time under the bridge, having a few beers and watching those old, broken and useless train cars, getting rusted in their own fate. I just tried to memorize that place, no photos or anything.

The second part of the untitled series of mane six in our empty world. Links to the other parts:

Well, I found the image (great piece by the way.) Does anyone know the video on youtube that used this image in the thumbnail for a really sad song? I know it's out there, but I can't seem to find it.

At the end of the world, there will be sad ponies. :(

wow...this series...So much lonelyness...and possibly social commentary about the state of the world, and...other things I am thinking of but can't put into words. :thumbsup:

Did I just read the words "Chupacabras with automatic weapons"? I hope I did.

You're going to make me cry. I don't like seeing Fluttershy cry. If sounds could come out of this, she'd be squeaking.

Did you purposely use a pizza planet box? Because that implies this picture takes place in the Toy Story universe. Where toys come to life. Toys like My Little Ponies.

Under The Bridge downtown, is where I drew some blood...
Under The Bridge downtown, I could not get enough...
Under The Bridge downtown, forgot about my love...
Under The Bridge downtown, I gave my life away...

I know the picture is supposed to be sad, but I can't help but feel a sense of serenity from it.
Call me a strange.

D'aww, poor Fluttershy! I-

Wait. Is that the safe-house symbol from Left 4 Dead on the bridge there?
If she's crying, and this is the L4D universe, then that makes her a witch...
Screw it, I'm hugging the witch.

Is that Derpy in the ruined building next to the word "smells"?

Jeez, every time I look at this, I find something new...

(Fluttershy crying under the bridge)
(Me walking by hearing crying looks around)
Me: :( what are you doing here
Fluttershy: I was abandoned here
Me: Who would abandon a little cutie like you
(Fluttershy starts crying again)
Me: Hey listen I live near here why don't you come stay with me until you get your feet or hooves back on the ground
Fluttershy: You'd let a complete stranger come live with you
Me: Of course you seem like a real nice pony
Me: Ok by the way I didn't even get your name
Fluttershy: I'm Fluttershy whats your name
Me: Most people just call me Meta

Sometimes I feel like I am no element
Sometimes I feel like my only friend
Is the city I live in, the city of cloudsdale
Lonely as I am, together we cry

I live in her streets 'cause she's my companion
I walk through her clouds 'cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and she kisses the windy
Well, I never worry, now that is a lie
