Forgive and befriend by dannylim86 Forgive and befriend by dannylim86
What I want to see before the end of FIM.

The drawing was for praticing background. I HATE GRASS. Can't draw nicely.

Please click the image to view larger.

Criticism is always welcome.




[EDIT] I was wondering why this drawing suddenly had gotten burst of replies, and WOW! It's on Drawfriend Stuff again!

Thank you everyone! I'll draw harder for more drawings.

This reminds me of the fanfic i wrote not too long along :) (Only it was at the school and Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Apple Jack, Cheerilee & Filthy Rich where there too :P)

Here's the link to the fanfic if you would like to check it out ;)

The thing that I really like about the possibility of Silver Spoon redemption is the fact that the fanbase didn't really treat her sympathetically until she demonstrated redeeming qualities on her own. As such, it clearly wasn't manipulated by the fanbase, so I find it much more believable that Silver could be a decent pony if Diamond Tiara wasn't around to be a bad influence on her.

In Family Appreciation Day she was the first in her class to applaud Granny Smith's story. That made me think maybe there's hope for Silver Spoon.  I hope this happens too.

As our mutual Deviant friend Alex Warlorn correctly pointed out - the writers needed characters for the sole purpose of acting as obstacles for the Cutie Mark Crusaders to overcome, and in order for that to occur, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon must remain flat, unlikable bullies with no room or hope of ever getting character development.

Which has become completely jarring.
They were MEANT to function as one-shot villains. But unlike Trixie, they were kept to formula. And were flanderized to the point of absurdity.

I'm sick of it. Give them some actual personalities other than hate sinks dammit.

Some people LIKE to have one-dimensional villains on TV - they WANT to have some one who represents people they don't like in real life whom they could project their hatred and frustration on, and feel cathartic joy when said villains gets demolished on TV, all without feeling guilt or remorse since they have no personality beyond being evil.

In real life, some 'evil' people are beyond justice due to their power, status or simply luck, who can get away with punishment in their time on earth, and that frustrates us to no end. Why did you suppose we invented the concept of hell, where evil sinners gets tortured forever and ever and ever? So we comfort ourselves with the idea that they will still get their just deserts, even after the end. Fictional villains who gets defeated and punished is roughly the same thing; it's revenge by proxy.

Thus, the existence of one-dimensional villains in fiction is merely a reflection of one fundamental truth about Humanity: We are an inherently vindictive, vengeful species. And we have it, because being vengeful is one of the traits that made us so successful as intelligent apex predators. It motivates us to destroy anyone who hurts us and threatens us, and it drove us to mercilessly crush any competition in our way, until we are at the top of the food chain.

If any other species ever become sentient or intelligent, no doubt they would become as vengeful as we are; nobody stays on top by being passive.

It's also because it involves a drug addiction of dopamine, the pleasure hormone, which is released by our brains when we get angry and hateful, triggering the 'FIGHT' of our fight-or-flight response. It prepares us for combat, dulling pain - and our conscience - in a high of vengeful ecstasy.

Which is why some times, some people WANT to be wronged by other people.

This is why one can never get rid of one-dimensional, card-carrying villains in fiction - as long as humanity exists, they would always WANT someone to punish without guilt. Defeating villains are escapist fantasies that allows people to let go of their pent up frustration of a cruel and unfair world. They want someone to compare against and make them feel righteous and justified. And the more absurdly evil fictional villains are, the better.

Sigh.

And such villains WORK in action movies! You're there for the explosions and the hero punching people! 
It works in super hero movies, (mostly) because you're there for a clear case of good vs evil.
And it works in a platformer game since you're there to jump on the heads of things. 

But in MLP FiM where character develop is such a big theme of the story, having a villain with the design and style of a one-shot baddie make repeat appearances without giving them depth DOESN'T work.

"And such villains WORK in action movies!"

Which, ultimately, is what makes them and violent video-games so utterly immoral - it makes us think there's nothing wrong in dehumanizing people we don't like to one-dimensional caricatures of villainy, and then encourages us to punch or shoot them in the face.

This kind of attitude resulted in the Holocaust.

But we watch or play them anyways because...

"You're there for the explosions and the hero punching people!"

See, EXACTLY! It's a drug addiction - addiction of dopamine and adrenaline. We're addicted to it all; to power-fantasies violence, vindication and vengeance. We imagine and project ourselves to the action heroes on screen, and for the duration of the film or game believe that we are on the (clearly defined) side of the light, good and righteous, have the power to defeat pitch-black evil, and set right all that is wrong in the world.

But the film will end, and once we walk out of the cinema and back into reality, we realize that we actually can't do any of that; we individually are mostly impotent and powerless to make any real difference in the face of a cruel, uncaring and morally complex world. And we also remember that trying to be action heroes often just makes problems we want to solve even worse.

For action genre in fiction, I recommend playing (Or at least watch a Youtube walkthrough of) the FPS game"Spec Ops: The Line" for an utterly brutal deconstruction of its conventions. It's not the same as action movies, but the deconstruction still applies. A line from the game:

"The truth... is that you're here because you wanted to feel like something you're not: A hero."

But in MLP FiM where character develop is such a big theme of the story, having a villain with the design and style of a one-shot baddie make repeat appearances without giving them depth DOESN'T work.

Well, who knows? One of these days they just might do that. We just had to wait and see. The show-runners redeemed Discord, after all...

Yes, I've seen him say on several occasions. Though, since season three I've held onto some hope that we would get a "Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon get redeemed" episode in season four but that doesn't likely anymore. Not unless the writers are planning some big twist.

i guess because i can empathize (glasses help) with Spoon there it helps her become my favorite filly (Scoot there being my favorite CMC) that and some great fan fics on the matter (i feel it would be improper to advertise) help convey a following victim in the schemes of Tiara (interestingly she did not appear in the press episode).

now that aside it is a powerful and well drawn piece and just touches the well "feels" as i believe the hipsters call it nowadays.

cleverly because Spoon is not quite in the center there is a big gag where the eye wonders to find Tiara.

one tear feel a little big (her left eye) a juts a little.

the grass seems fine one recommendation maybe is to add occasional clumps that have thicker and longer blades simmuler to the different coulers clumps used .

simply fantastic overall.

Awwr, yeah. Diamond Tiara always seemed like a real brat to me, but Silver Spoon? She just played along, perhaps out of loneliness and a desire to have at least one friend. I don't think she's genuinely a bad girl.

(For that matter, I don't think Diamond Tiara is, either, although she may have a more difficult lesson to learn than Silver Spoon.)
