Pearl, Spike, and Smokey by DolphinMoana Pearl, Spike, and Smokey by DolphinMoana
I'm getting attached to this character. :lol: He's so CUUUUUUTE. And I'm adamant that Spike still has family out there....so here I introduce to you the Dragon Triplets: Pearl, Spike, and Smokey (originally Jasper, but that would've called for him to be red...)

Not really sure how the story would get going, but I would assume at some point Spike runs off for one reason or another and - in his travels - comes across a dragon community, perhaps somewhere in a dormant volcano. And he eventually learns that not all dragons are the brutes he's met thus far. And who should be there but his own family! Siblings and all! Mom and Dad Dragon have their own roles in the community, so most of the dragonlings time is spent with each other. Spike gets along pretty well with both of his siblings, but it's little Pearl who really is to one to take him under her proverbial wing and shows him the ways of the dragon community. Smokey is the brash, rough and tumble kid. :lol:

I haven't exactly figured out what their parents look like, but I assume that the mother is fairly gentle (for a dragon) and dedicated to her family, and their father a brash and fierce protector - traits of both parents moderately evident in Spike's personality. Which most likely makes for hi-larious hijinks when the ponies eventually come looking for Spike, and Daddy Dragon doesn't get that they mean no harm to his cub.

For the record, I realized the coloring I came up with for Pearl and Mom Dragon was a bit reminiscent of Rarity. But hey, isn't there some kind of psychological theory that men will look for a woman that reminds them of their mother? And vice versa with girls and their dads?

Comments are greatly appreciated!! :aww:

Well I was thinking that instead of him meeting his siblings all at the same time at the place, maybe pearl and Smokey also got put somewhere else. I'm not quite sure yet, but I was thinking maybe pearl was (secretly) adopted by a jeweler in Trottingham. But due to her being a Dragon she has to stay hidden most of the time. and Smokey was taken up by a ruff and tumble Griffin family not to far from the Dragon lands. I'm guessing they all meet when their a bit other too.

Hmm, I'm not sure. I guess once they get reunited they try to find there parents, but I don't know weather or not they succeeded.

Not sure, honestly. :hmm: For me, I take a lot of time to write a story, and even formulate it before it gets posted. My last fanfic was about movie-length, and it was a year in development before I posted the first chapter. ^^; Took two more years to finish it.

I have been figuring out an outline to try and attempt a shorter story with this, though, so we'll see what happens. :)

Spike was hatched out of his egg when he was used in a magic test.
So he never had contact with his siblings or parents.

True. But this story happens later on - say, after the events of Season 2. Spike's been living with Twilight and all, but he comes across a distant dragon colony at some point and happens to find the family his egg was separated from long ago. That's when this picture takes place.

So glad you're a Spike fan, I thought I was the only one. I'd have to agree with Rarity, he has the cutest little cheeks and I love the way he waddles away in anger :lol: All in all he's a very cute and sassy character.

I did enjoy "Dragon Quest" and I loved how he came to the conclusion that the ponies are his family, but part of me wanted to find someone he was related to. I'd like to see them broaden the dragons' personalties or could it be Spike is just one of a kind? Either way I love your idea of him having siblings :3 They idea of their community had me smiling too, parents are away the kids will play!

I've heard that before too. I guess in some cases it can be true.

He is. :love: And he seems surprisingly mature for his age (then again it was Celestia who actually raised and trained him), so I love when the show gives him "little boy" moments and nuances like playing with action figures and gorging on the ice cream when he's not supposed to. XD

I realize while watching the show that while Spike is a baby dragon, we barely see him just playing and relaxing. :( He's normally hard at work in the library. That actually becomes part of the story behind this pic - once the ponies get Spike back home, Twilight feels guilty for taking him away from his siblings, the only real playmates of his own kind he's ever had. :(

I enjoy those moments too. He had me smiling two weeks ago with his "figurine play", but the ice cream accident trumped it.

Y'know you're right, I've never noticed that before. You figure he'd get time off to go hang with the Crusaders, but he chooses to hang with the Mane6. Will that picture have a follow-up? :3

cute. espeshaly Spike.

But the water mark.
not so much.

Also.

Spike is younger right?
Should he be the same size or smaller?

But other then that, I love the face that you kept wings off the others.

Do not like it when they jus up and give him wings for no reason.

Hes super cute without them.

Good Job.

Yeah, just protecting from the thieves. ^^; Sorry. Tried to make it so it wasn't much of an issue.

I'm pretty sure all three of these guys came from the same clutch of eggs. So if anything, they're only days apart. Spike just looks bigger because of the angles, I guess. And we can only really see Pearl's head. :lol:

Thanks for the comment! :aww: I like to believe that they'll get their wings someday - they're just too young right now.
