A warming get together by Vindhov A warming get together by Vindhov
Applejack shoved Honey closer to the door as she swung it open with her other hoof. She didn't want anyone to miss that her amazing niece had made all of the food inside. 

"Foods ready everypony, we gonna be eatin good today!" She shouted into the barn as she hugged her closer. 

Honeycrisp blushed intensly and wished she could go hide in one of the cupboards in the kitchen.

--------------------------------


This took forever 
and most of it is really sloppy. But I still kinda dig it

It was a pain trying to fit them all in there.
So this is the mane 6 with family (+Haywire) hanging out at sweet apple acres for a holiday get together. 

All of the husbandos are talking out of frame (aka I couldn't fit them in) as well as the CMC and Maud who was also invited. 

Ok here comes more info

So the red filly in the left corner is Pinkie's youngest kid Red Velvet
Red Velvet by Vindhov
She doesn't have a ref yet as she is practically brand new, but I liked her so much so I had to include her. The mudcake one that can be found in one of my sketchdumps was just an early concept for those wondering. 

The little pupper up in the left top corner is Maud's adopted kid Pebble. Originally Pebble was going to be a she, but I changed my mind and made it a he instead. So now his full name is Perry Pebble Pie (instead of Peggy)
Early concept: 
Pebble by Vindhov

Inkwell didn't want to come with cuz he is an antisocial grumpmeister. Instead he sits alone in the castle with his dusty old tomes. Thinking up more ways to feel sorry for himself. 
Twilight tried talking him into coming but he wouldn't have any of it


AJ, Honey, Peachy and Big Mac has been on kitchen duty (Big Mac is still in the kitchen) 

Care to take a guess why Pinkie is so ecstatic? (someone noticed that Sulphur looked kinda round, lets just say it has something to do with that) 

Bumble is out dressing up as some sort of Equestrian santa when Haywire pops up asking what he's doing. Snapple won't miss the opportunity for a clear headshot.

C.C is feeling kind of uncomfortable around so many ponies and is kindly asking his mother if it would be okay for him to get some fresh air.

Love Letter was so excited about everything the night before that she barely slept, making her very sleepy now instead. Thankfully mama Starlight is a very good pillow.


and that's about as far as I planned things in this picture xD 
Enjoy!

 Hope it isn't too chilly in there, barns can be drafty during the winter. But nice drawing, I wish I had some smiling faces and laughs around me right now.

I feel like Rarity is saying "oh come on Twilight Darling. You've always been gay." And twilights just embarrassed.

This is great. Crowded scenes of friends are some of my favorite pictures.  Like Norman Rockwell but with ponies.

It would be great to see you stick cerulean and haywire together like you were thinking of doing a while back.
Both of them balance each other out with his realistic view of the world keeping her grounded but her fun loving nature showing him how good life can be with others with you.
Sorry but I can't help myself but
Suggestions:
maggot/crabapple-you mentioned this before and it was amazing in how unexpected it was yet compatable they were in the way crabapple is willing to challenge him unlike the others that have been in his life and forces him to keep on his toes.

Silver/bumble-One of my favorite ships that was formed after seeing your comment on silvers crush on him and couldn't help but think about how much bumble would care for her, reassuring her, being able to soothe her and finally show how special she is no matter how she came to be.

It is amazing how easily you ship two characters no one would have thought to do and make them so convincing and likeable.
I am dying to know if there will be any more new couples introduced in your next gen characters.
Suggestions:
parasite/curtain call-keep him as a pet at first but grows to like him.
Twiggy/flurry heart-He is what she is looking for, kind and loving from the bottom of his heart. Twiggy helps keep her attitude in check and always shows his love for her no matter what she says about herself.

I'm really excited to see what my brain comes up with next too xD 
Usually it just kind of sneaks up on me like my brain goes "Hey... those two would look cute next to eachother" and then it snowballs into this huge plot point xD 
So yeah there will be more, I want Silver to get some lovin but haven't decided from who. 

I like these suggestions :D 
Parasite and Curtain Call would be really cute and kinda funny, however the problem is that Parasite gonna go and get killed and I don't want my little boy to get heartbroken.

Twiggy and Flurry is a new one xD Never thought about that. The ones I have going for them tho is both maybes. I was thinking a while back to ultimately pair up Riposte/Twiggy once Riposte has redeemed himself somewhat (Or Riposte/petit) 
And with Flurry I was thinking for a while Flurry/Cerulean but I don't know... they are all still in the maybe zone.

I don't' think he and twiggy are on good terms right now, does he know what riposte did to honey?

But, sorry if I keep saying it but haywire/Cerulean is to good to pass up.

Also you could always make a relationship chart that includes the characters to keep track of who you want to be with another character.
