What Comes Up by MisterAibo What Comes Up by MisterAibo
The walls shook with another barrage. Very close. There was no need to put it off now - the sleeping juggernaut stood up against him. The strong prevailed, the weak were crushed. After all, wasn't that what he wanted?
Silas sat down at his desk, and started writing.
"Dear Princess Celestia..."


A commission for SilasShield-Wing, showing the last hours in power of Silas Shield-Wing. Godwin was right.

Also on tumblr!

why is a unicorn writing with his hoof rather than using his magic?

anyways, wonderful animation! it's nice a smooth (when my computer isn't buggy XD) and it looks like it could be a scene taken directly from the show!

Thanks :) I try.

In my mind, writing with his hoof rather than magic could be a bit of a symbolic gesture - like a sign of respect towards the pony you're writing to, since it's harder to write this way. Or maybe he's just not dexterous enough with his magic - after all, navigating a quill with the power of your mind requires a lot of finesse, and this character especially might be more focused on raw power.

Very smooth blinking of the eyes. It's actually quite believable.

I'm experimenting with different way to manage blinking, too, so making the pony blink in reaction to something is easier for me now.

I could never figure out how they do it o.o

If their hooves are malleable enough, they can probably sink the quill into them. Or maybe they lick their fur to make their hooves stick to the feather. Or writing instruments have some sticky charm applied to them. Or it's just convenience, like when you start thinking "Why does stuff have handles in Equestria? Why do the benches look like they've been designed for humans? How can a civilization without opposable thumbs build cities and fine machinery?"

I'm just saying, there is a reason unicorns used to boss everypony else around, and still do. Without magic, Equestrian society would collapse in a week.

Interesting. So its like an Equestria view of WWII? Is the pony the Führer, or is he a subordinate officer?

Basically, yeah - he's a leader of a radical Pegasus Imperialist party in Equestria. Apparently, he's not a fan of the mustache though.
