This Day is Perfect by ShroudofShadows This Day is Perfect by ShroudofShadows
With the Changelings vanquished, Twilight turned to congratulate her brother and his true bride to be. The sight before her violet eyes was not one she wished to behold. There lay the two lovers under the alter. Their bodies sat still and motionless on the cold marble floor.

Twilight rushed to her brother and former foal sitter. Tears streamed down the unicorn's face.

"Shining Armor! Candence!" she futilely shouted, but there was nothing she could do. Her two oldest friends were together forever, though not in the most conventional of ways.

Twilight gazed upon their faces. They both appeared to be at peace. The young unicorn sat down, holding back her sheer agony. Weakly, she began to sing, honoring the memory of her fallen friends.

"This day is perfect," she worded out before sobbing to the floor.


So I watched the Royal Wedding with my bff today and she mentioned during the climax "Omg, if Shining Armor and Cadence sacrifice themselves I'm going to die!"

and I drew it because I thought it'd be a really interesting twist if they did.

Done in less then an hour so no critiques please.

This is really beautiful and a nice twist on what happened that <3 I imagine they're loving each other in death just as they did in life.

Too bad they wouldn't do that, since this is aimed at younger kids and everything. As much as they love the bronies, they can't ignore the target demographic.

lol sometimes I wish they would just do it the brony way lol but Hasbro has a great thing going with the show. Not only are they able to meet their traget demographic, but they have a new one as well keeping with the "6 year old girl" standard. At the end of the day Hasbro is a business and they have to make as much money as they can. I'm just glad they are working with the brony community as well as the little girls :)

COME ON. You can't tell me this didn't cross your mind when it happened too.

We waited ALL DAY for this thing to load. It would have been an epic!sad ending, but maybe I'm just too cynical and expected them to die in the end. xD

SOME OF US KNOW THAT PONIES ARE INNOCENT AND PURE! No seriously, you killed the mood when you said that lol XD!

because Twyla's internet sucks :/! It would have made an epic twist if they did, but I don't think the "intended demographic" would have been pleased XD!

I would have if my friends weren't watching with me XD! I haven't seen my big brother in a while so that song really got to me. And I act as defensive as Twilight does every time he finds some new chick lol.

I was kinda hoping she did..it'd be totally unexpected. I know,that sounds really mean and everything but it would show how powerful chrysalis really was. but unfortunately they'd never kill off a character that important..

and then Luna took up the responsibility for the sun and moon.

It would have been a cool twist as well. If it did happen I would have cried my eyes out. No matter all the Trollestia and Molestia jokes some people make, I'll still love the canon Celestia :3!

if she died,the show would probably end because it's essentially about twilight being celestia's student..maybe they would make her luna's student. what a change that would be! and that would probably give cadence a bigger role too.

Thank you :D! I was testing out a shading style I want to use for some other projects :3!
I kinda wish I had taken more time now, but once it hit 4am I was too tired to continue XD!

Don't knock yourself. The ponies are harder to draw then they look. Proportioning is so specific to the body style, and they are all pre-rendered in a program that has those specifications set. That's why I draw them with a cross of the show style and my own. It's easier that way lol ^^;.
