Mocha Delight paced around the cafe. Lifting her chin she reached a hoof up and bobbed it up and down as she counted off the things to do like waxing the floors, polishing the counters, and putting away all of the dishes. She had to have this place spic and span before her niece arrived, she couldn’t believe it! She was meeting her niece for the first time!
Mocha didn’t mean to be so out of touch with her family in Canterlot. But since she left so many years ago, she had no real yearning to go back. The yearly Christmas cards from her mother were a good reminder as to why. Sighing, she set her hoof down with a clack to snap her mind back to the present. None of that mattered. Her sister and her wonderful husband didn’t matter. Today, she was meeting Citrus Tang. The pony she had only seen pictures of growing up. Her only regret wasn’t being able to meet her sooner, especially now that Mocha knew she had an interest in the beverage business!
Her pride seemed to glow from her as she looked around her small cafe. It was a quaint place, she had the funds and time to expand now but just didn’t think she wanted to change a thing. She and the other residents of Ponyville seemed to like it just the way it was. Plus whenever she needed extra seating, she made up some nice tables outside for her customers to enjoy the sunny days.
Picking up her shawl with a glow of levitation she neatly wrapped it around her neck and mane, loosely knotting it in the front over her chest. Walking to the door as it opened she paused and glanced back as if to make sure the glasses hadn’t moved. Smiling again to herself she turned and let the door swing shut behind her with a jingle, the sign reading CLOSED in the window. Normally she would rise bright and early for the ponies and other creatures to grab a sip to pick them up before the days work, but not today. She planned to have the entire Cafe closed today in order to show her niece around.
Picking up her pace to a trot Mocha Delight smiled and nodded to her neighboring ponies who were also early risers. Cheering them good mornings as she made her way down to the train station. She had gotten there a little early, but she didn’t mind the wait. It gave her time to prepare what she wanted to say. How to introduce herself? How do you explain to a young filly why you never came to visit her for 16 years? Mocha grimaced and clicked her hooves to the wooden platform. Surely Citrus Tang would be happy to see her in general and it wouldn’t even matter. They were both beverage ponies after all, they were sure to get along famously!
She gave everything.
Another part of the cry-pony-series. Two in one morning? Pretty proud of myself. Would have been prouder to do more positive work but I’m glad to have gotten something, anything, done. This one is one I can feel pretty close to. Give everything up, have it all taken from you. It hurts.
Like Cryshy, Raricry will also be a print at MLP-MSP!
Another to be featured at MLP-MSP!
She’ll drown in tears.
Here’s the rest of that morning sneak peak! Cryshy!
I was honestly trying to do my more peppy/generic pony stuff. But drawing just frustrates me more than usual lately. That’s what happens when you’re trying to break yourself in again. I decided to take my frustrations on Fluttershy. I just saw her weeping little face in my head and had to get it out.
I might do a whole “defeated” set of the mlpfim. Depends if I can come up with clever lines for them or not. I will be selling prints of her weepy face at MLP-MSP!
You’ll be seeing Clover Coin at MLP-MSP this June!
To have her there was all she needed. Curled up against her, warmth beneath her chin. Citrus Tang sighed nestling her muzzle into her mane and curling her hooves around her. She had missed this more than anything, the comforting touch. She had forgotten what it felt like in her years of rebellion, her stubborn will against her parent’s work-a-holic ways. Never did she imagine it would feel like this, the calm pattern of Poppy’s breath, the slow beat of her heart… Tang could not help but smile against her in utter bliss. How she wished they could just stay in this shaded pasture forever.
I’m actually not one for shipping usually, but this was a sweet request from someone and I couldn’t resist just drawing two unicorns snuggling.
So everyone have some surprise RariTwi from me!
Someday… Someday I will get myself to finish this…
Even a sleeping Rainbow Dash isn’t graceful….
I just wanted to make a little post to say thank you to everypony who reblogged and helped out. I was hoping a few would pass on the world but I admit I had my hopes hung a little low after this whole fiasco, you can’t help but feel a little defeated sometimes.. right?
Well you all proved me wrong. Never have I been so grateful for it. I’ve gotten so many wonderful messages and uplifting spirits from you all, I just can’t thank you all enough. I really hope we can keep reblogging that signal boost and make sure I get everyone back. We already got 1/4 of my following in an after noon! So amazing, thank you!
I’ll do my very best to reply to everyone in a timely manner. I just don’t want to end up flooding anyone’s dash so I’ll try to space them out and put them into the Queue. I’ll work hard to make sure this will be a blog worth following again!
Thank you, thank you all so much! <3
