Twilight's mother visits (part 1 of 2) by HareTrinity Twilight's mother visits (part 1 of 2) by HareTrinity
Part 2: [link]

Bonus! - [link]


Got onto Equestria Daily's first comic set of 2013: That was unexpected! :o Happy New Year all. ;)

I write Twilight's mother, toy canon as "Twilight Velvet", as a playful, edging on eccentric, type who is in many ways her children's greatest fan.

I've got a lot of comics on the go in my WIP folder but I thought something cheerful and silly would be a good way to end the year!

Mrs Twilight's hair is coloured to differentiate her from her daughter. I'd have done Twilight's too but those tail highlights are a pain to do by hand. Thanks to the hair, plus the speech bubbles, this pic's rather purple, which isn't so bad... Full colour would be nice but I want to finish this ever before 2013. Also: One of these days I'll learn to do consistent pony proportions but that day is not today.

This is really funny, but what would have been great is if Twilight had a hard time catching on to the possible misinterpretation and Spike starts giggling-then busts out laughing-then has Twilight lean and so he can clarify the possible interpretation of her statement. But great job!

Yeah, not sure where Spike is for these... Still, I barely got the comics done before 2013 anyway, so it's probably just as well I didn't include anything else!

There's something ever so slightly bizarre about writing shipfics involving your own kids, but hey - why not? :)

(Also... don't deny it, Twilight! ^_~)

HareTrinity Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes. =p Though I figure it's just one step above parents getting hopeful when they see their kid hanging about with a nice friend who seems to make said daughter/son happy.

Aye. :)

BTW, any plans to turn this into an ongoing series rather than just a two-parter? It's far too much fun to just end after the second page, and I'm dying (well, so to speak) to find out what'll happen next. :)

Why would Twilight's mom write romance stories about her son? And how in depth do they get?
Reply
:iconharetrinity:
HareTrinity Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I imagine they're just fluffy "and he lived happily ever after" ones.

Maybe a couple of "and then that ***** broke his heart for she was really a filthy harpy in disguise" short stories if he had a bad relationship experience (I know my mum gets livid when guys mess me about)!

That's actually a really sweet idea, now that I think about it. Twilight's Mom is best fanfic writer.

So have you written any son fics by Twilight's mom yet? If not I'll have to get on that.

HareTrinity Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Not yet. =p Be my guest! I'd recommend keeping them fluffy though, to maintain that "mother's little angel" edge. ;)

I have seen a lot of "Twilight's mom is a writer" lately. Where did that come from?

I'm not entirely sure... She has stars as a cutie mark, you'd think they'd link her more to magic or astronomy! Maybe it just seemed like a stereotypical "middle class mother" thing?

Twilight took the news that her mother was writing shippy fanfics about Shining Armor pretty well...

Up until that point it hadn't been her problem? :shrug: I figure it's just one step above the "He/She seemed nice, will he/she be coming over again?" type of questions parents ask when they like one of their children's friends. And of course the background speculation by grandparents/parents/aunts/uncles when someone brings their significant other to a family event ("they seem nice, I wonder if it will last?").

Twilight's mum is a fanfic writer who ships her own children?
My head is full of what.
This could go very wrong, very fast. I'm kinda excited.

Grammar error: "Does mean I need a new character to write about," just pointing that out. ^^

Other than that, good comic! Can't wait for more! :D

A mother writing about her son's possible romantic stories?

Woah. So glad my mother is not like that.

She surely has a open mind. Or she begs for a new source for her next romance stories. Poor Twilight.

Very good comic

Plus I know my mother speculates about my brother's female friends when he's not about ("they seem a lot closer than before, don't they?").

Not sure if this is better or worse than a self-insert.
