Today's topic was: "Draw a pony with a sixth sense / Draw a pony encountering the supernatural". Well, the supernatural here is what Rarity expects to encounter. One of the old-timey beliefs associated with Midsummer in Finland is that if you walk to a well in the night and look inside, you should see your future spouse. Covering the eyes isn't necessarily part of the deal, but it's just for this picture.

I didn't know about this finnish belief, that's very interesting to discover! :D And of course Spike is trying his luck with it :giggle:

Interesting. So Finland has this belief huh? Now I see why Spike is in the well.

Haven't yet met anyone who actually believes in that, but of course being in a world where magic happens all the time, Rarity here has a good reason to believe :)

Hope this turns out "well" for Spike.

Let's hope this "well" still has "water" in it...

Aah... The old Kissing Well technique, very ingenious.


a joke only older people who live in Alabama might get.

Sounds fun, I suppose!

RenaTamer's avatar

yeah... the rules for the kissing well go like this


this is a "game" played during a church function or large "Family" get-together... like a reunion... unmarried girls take turns walking up to the for-titled Kissing Well, put on a blindfold, lean out over the well and pucker-up...


if the magic of the well is strong enough/your belief in the magic is strong enough... the man you're destined to be hitched to will kiss you from the other side.

notice I stated Family get-together or reunion...


and yes this IS a thing.

I didn't know spike had a six sense ^^
Even though he really doesn't ^^'

But I do love to give a complement to the composition ^^

Also note this is my second time trying to comment cuz the first one didn't send in

Thanks, I guess you also need a good sixth sense to walk up to that well without seeing.
