Inspiration Hits like a Brick by TheOwlGoesMoo Inspiration Hits like a Brick by TheOwlGoesMoo
"SWEETIE BELLE!"

The bedroom door flew open, bouncing off the opposite wall. Sweetie froze, wracking her brain for what Rarity could be yelling about now. What did she do this time? Did she let Opal out? Were those waffles being saved for something? Did she find the-

No, no it wasn't any of those things, or at least that's what Sweetie thought. Rarity was grinning like a mare possessed. That sort of giddiness could only mean one thing.

"Darling, come with me. I need you right now!"

Without waiting for her sister to sit up, respond, or react in anyway, Rarity grabbed Sweetie, half carrying and half dragging the filly away, which wasn't made any more pleasant by the spring in the older unicorn's step.

"Rarity -ow!- what are you -oof!- doing? Put -ooh!- me down!"

"Sorry darling, but I can't! My muse is singing, and I'm out of mannequins! I've got too many projects and no more room for another. I need you to be my model!"

"What-"

What happened next was a blur of color, measurements, and more than a few impromptu musical numbers. In a flash, Sweetie was standing on the platform as Rarity through bolt after bolt of fabric around her, rejecting them in seconds and grabbing a new one. She was in a hoodie, then in a dress, then back in the hoodie with an entirely different dress resting on a hanger. She blinked, and found herself standing in her room again, as Rarity gave her a quick hug.

"Oh, thank you, sweetheart. It looks absolutely lovely! It might need a little adjustment around the waist, maybe loosen the shoulders a bit..."

She closed the door, muttering notes to herself as she practically skipped back to her workroom. Sweetie blinked again.

"-just happened?"



Sure, Sweetie loves Rarity and jumps at any chance to help her, but living with an artist, especially one who works in such a concrete medium, carries certain risks. Sorry kiddo, but that's the price you've got to pay.

Y'know, if Rarity was holding her sister by the legs instead of the feet, that could lead to a very funny yet embarrassing little "whoopsy-daisy", if you get my drift. ;)

Okay, this is either hilariously adorable or adorably hilarious. And I can so see Rarity doing something like this, too, when inspiration has struck!

Little sisters are the best guinea pigs. Uh, I mean models... yeah.

I bet Rarity can do it so fast that in mid-step you find yourself completely re-dressed and have no idea how that happened.

Indeed, we younger siblings generally are. At least that's what I was told =p

Oh yes, she's had a whole lot of practice doing this. Mostly to Sweetie XD

I'm a younger sibling too. Mostly I remember big bro's music being hearable through the walls all too easily. But I got away with more 'cause I was the quieter one.

You think Sweetie Belle would be used to this by now. Then again, astronauts say you never get used to looking down at Earth, so may be being th subject of one of Rarity's inspiration attacks is the same.

Intellectually, she is, but it's like a rollercoaster: You can ride hundreds of them, and you never really get used to the speed, the falls, the rush...

Rationally, she knows Rarity can come bursting in and drag her away to dress her up like her own little porcelain doll, but it's still a hell of a feeling when it happens.

Sweetie should be happy Rarity went for the feet and not the pants I guess.  Silver lining and all that jazz, right?

Or tail, god that would have to fucking hurt to get dragged by the tail like that.

It sped up the process a bit, but it made the trip a hell of a lot more awkward for her. You've got to look on the bright side, yeah?

Oh God that hurts just thinking about it. It would be like getting pulled by a single limb and your hair at the same time.

I suppose the closest thing we could get would be to grow our hair into a ponytail and have someone start fucking pulling us by it.

Still, i can only imagine it woulf hurt like a bitch.

Be thankful for one thing, Sweetie. At least Rarity didn't read that inspiration spell again.

That made for a hell of a day for her. She quite liked having a golden mane, although it was a bit top-heavy.

Hurry! Before inspiration dissipates! It's a matter of Fabulousity and Mediocrity! :ohnoes:

And duam, Rarity in a baggy sweater and ugg boots. Not a fan of uggs myself (Always thought they made your legs look like loathes of bread. Not to mention my sisters went through them like dirty socks every winter D:) but Rarity wears them in style ^^

Fantastic work on the background, too! I think I recognize that dress as well, I think I gave you that for Celestia to wear :>

THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE! QUICK SWEETIE PUT THIS HAT ON UNTIL SHE CAN FIND THE RIGHT SHADE OF VIOLET!

Some people can pull off the Uggs look, but it's rare. They are damn comfy though, I've got to say. My own sister went through a phase too, and we had a ton scattered around the house.

Thanks! And yep, same gown. Now how oh how did Rarity get her paws on it...
