Gentle Rain by sycamoreleaf Gentle Rain by sycamoreleaf
"Hush now, quiet now
It's time to lay your sleepy head
Hush now, quiet now
It's time to go to bed...


For I'll be here for you..."


Isn't it so very bizarre that after all this time as a pony fan I have yet to add any pony art in my gallery? Despite the fact that I actually draw pony on any surface available? Ya... never mind.

~Bezanthume suggested I draw pony, so ya... I drew pony. And in case it's hard to tell, here we have Fluttershy shading some kittens from the rain with her wing. The strange floating lights are... there because reasons.

EDIT: MY ART WAS ON EQUESTRIA DAILY! [link] HOLY INETERNETS!!!

Strange floating lights are my favourite part of this piece :)

I'm glad reasons.

Nothing wrong with waiting to incorporate pony into your gallery. Gives you extra time to practice...
Beautiful picture, the background and lighting on Fluttershy is absolutely amazing. Love it!

Most probably. I will just need the proper inspiration. But yes, chances are there will be more pony art sometime in the not-so-distant future.

If that's actually Slenderman in the background, then that is some beautiful camouflage. It blends in so well with the background, and it only appears when it's pointed out. Creepy! If not, then that's a really, really odd coincidence.

Why is Slenderman waving two purple glowsticks around? I'm serious! You can even see his legs!

From the dawn of the internet, it has been continuously been borbarded with pictures of cats. Cats have reigned over everything and anything labeled "internet" since before the time of tumblr. The war against cats and their enroachment of our freedom was fought with impassionate warcries of "Ugh... cats aren't funny!".

Ponies lived in another time, another reality altogether from the feline overlords of our beloved interwebs. Their birthing cries and stumbling first steps went unnoticed by the great nation of cats. Awkward and with no more intelligence than a common talking dog, the meowth reich did not deem the ponies a threat to their throne. They even averted their gaze when Ponies came into their view a third time, that is how far the originally harmless Ponies had fallen.

That was their first mistake.

The dictatorship of cats had grown fat and corrupted, allowing few select humans to retain their sense of wonder and inherent intelligence. The Great Feline Overlords manipulated these humans to make entertainment for them. They could not even acknowledge Ponies to be considered entertainment, so they threw it at their Best Human Creator, Lauren Faust, expecting her to fail and give them their entertainment.

That was their second mistake.

Ponies were an innocent, ignorant and thoroughly infuriating race when Lauren first laid her eyes upon them, but she saw potential, where others only saw despair. She set out to teach the ponies of Friendship, the magic interactive storytelling and varied characters. She taught them they did not have to conform to society's expectations, but to become their own characters, distinctive and vibrant. The cats only scoffed at Lauren's efforts with the ponies, watching in barely contained mirth as Lauren gathered more humans to help with what the cats thought to be a futile effort.

That was their third and final mistake.

Ponies were broadcast into the void called children's TV shows, expected to never be heard from again. Cats smiled and laughed at their apparent victory and missed the first time someone uttered the word "brony". Ponies spilled over into the Internet the cats had reigned over for so long and took root in the minds of the collective consciousness of the interwebs. The cats were taken by surprise as their palace was suddenly being taken over by the beings they had cast away. The Aristocats did not want to forfit their throne and fought the ponies tooth and nail, but were only met with Love and Tolerance. With their weapons useless against the onslaught of Ponies, The Great Feline Empire scattered and laid in ruin as the Aristocats grabbed whatever they could of their ill-gotten wealth.

Ponies work to help those brutalized by their own corrupt goverment, offering the hydrophobic cats shelter from the rain in their ruined cities. Helping the smaller and more feeble creatures with their Magic and teaching them of Frienship, as they were. Cats, as they are solitary creatures, stumble on this path and yet again Fluttershy finds a box with two unwanted kittens on the side of the street. Speaking soft words of comfort and using her own wing to shield the poor creatures from the rain, Fluttershy lays down next to the box, listening closely for signs of life from the box in the darkened streets of the once great city.

Just as the cold water soaks her to the bone, she hears a soft mew and a rustle of movemnt from the box she guards. The two kittens rise up from the drenched rags they'd been wrapped in and seek warmth from the Pony shielding them from the rain. Fluttershy looks down to two kittens mewing and climbing atop each other to paw at their curious savior. Fluttershy smiles at the innocence and wonder in the two small creatures, as her friends rush over to her with magical lights and torched illuminating the two felines and the Element of Kindness, doing her thing.
