Stupid Ponies! by DolphinMoana Stupid Ponies! by DolphinMoana
"This is all you and your stupid ponies' fault!! All they are are self-righteous, cowardly, selfish, and they think they're better than everyone!!! If they had just come and let it rain on the village once in a while, then more gems would grow here, then we wouldn't be starving, then the Elders wouldn't have made this stupid Rationing Law, then Dad wouldn't have gotten hurt and lost his place with them, then your egg wouldn't have been stolen and Mama wouldn't have had to give up her food for years and she wouldn't be dying!! If your prissy pony princess really cares about all of her "subjects", then why doesn't she help us?!? She doesn't care!!! And if Mama dies and you still wanna go back and live with them, then that makes you a traitor!! And traitors here get driven out or killed!! And I'm not gonna have a traitor for a goody two-shoes brother!!"


Well, here we have Smokey basically on his last straw with his pony-raised brother actually considering going back home to his pony friends. Smokey lays out exactly why everything's been so dreary and hectic in Spike's birthplace for the past several years - as well as the conflict between the dragons and basically the rest of Equestria - and the dangers of what could happen in the near future if it keeps up.

Why would rain cause more crystals to grow? They are rocks

A lot of gems actually form underground when water on the ground's surface is evaporated into it and minerals in the water are left behind and accumulate. Other factors such as temperature and pressure actually cause the crystalization. :)

Shows you what I know about rocks.

Oh pffft, I'm a science geek and I still had to do research for that. :lol:

Goodness, there is quite a lot more to Spike's backstory according your headcanon. I can understand why Smokey's upset, but it's not all Spike's fault! I hope the little guy can work this out.


The only thing that looks a little awkward is Spike's posture, I would think his legs should be more braced for impact along with his arm.

Upbringing in a dragon colony is a lot more brutal. ^^; One of those animal societies where the elders are a threat to the young when they think them as a threat to their position. Fights always break out in the colony and a food shortage was the icing on the cake. The thought that his brother grew up in this safe, posh nice pony society didn't give him much reason to sympathize with Spike. ^^;

You're probably right. :lol: Still getting used to drawing him.

#1: eggs are not stolen, they are donated
#2: even if it is my mother, I still belong in Ponyville with Twilight Sparkle
#3: there are more than enough gems where they are at

#1: Oh, really? Go tell that to Dad! He got caught trying to steal from the community stash to feed Mom and us, and your egg was gone when they turned around!! And Mom says there was a scent leading away from the nest!
#2: *growls* How could you say that?! She's our mother!! She and Dad have searched for years for you!! And the only reason Mom is sick is because not only has she worried, but she's given a lot of her food and water  to us!! Don't be ungrateful!!
#3: No, there's NOT. Gems need water to develop, and none of your ponies have bothered coming here to bring rain! #4: They are TOO!! All of this is their fault!! They have the ability to fix it but they WON'T!!

I'm talking about outside if This series... And no, they are not stupid, and you trying to bring war upon them is ridiculous, for no pony would fight or cause harm to another being

Does make me wonder about the ponies' position in their world, considering they seem to have a monopoly on gems and the weather.
