Nyx and Twilight by sgtgarand Nyx and Twilight by sgtgarand
"Despite being asleep, Nyx managed to sense Twilight’s presence. She woke up just barely, in a sort of sleep walking like state. With her blanket hanging off her little body, she moved over beside Twilight and laid back down right beside the unicorn in the bed, her little head resting in the crook of Twilight’s neck.

It was something that brought a smile to Twilight as she gently nuzzled the sleeping Nyx."


-------

This was a part of 'Past Sins' that I thought just had to be drawn, for an added "D'aww factor." I really wish I had started reading this sooner.


The fanfic can be found here: Past Sins

Seriously, "Past Sins". Kind of a harsh title for a MLP fanfic. Then again, it already sounds better and deeper than the gratuitously gory horror MLP fanfic known as "Cupcakes". I haven't read it, but from what I've heard about it and the fanart based off of the fanfic, the person who made the fanfic is a seriously messed up mofo.

By the way, are you one of those fans who thinks that rainbowdash is a lesbian? I don't mean to be accusing anyone of anything, it's just that a lot of people on here seem to think that rainbowdash is homosexual just because her hair is rainbow patterned. They seem to forget that this is a show that was originally designed for kids and rainbows are seen as just plain pretty to kids, not a symbol of anything. Also, the fact that she acts like a tomboy isn't an indicater either since some girls start out as tomboys and eventually grow out of it and become more feminine. Seriously people should stop reading too much into things.

You new to the fandom?

'Past Sins' is nothing along the lines of 'Cupcakes.' Not only that, but it was a pretty big deal while it was in the process of being completed as well as after it was finished. A lot of controversy as well, mainly due to those(as you put it) who read too much into things..or just take it all way too seriously..and show a lot of hate and negativity towards it. Trying not to spoil the story too much, incase you decide to read it; 'Past Sins' refer to Nyx because she was created from the remnants of Nightmare Moon and well... I'll just say that it affected how the others felt about her.

And no, I do not think that about Dash or any other character. I leave any shipping out of my ideas of the show and definitely do not have my own "head cannon" or "otp" between the characters. The only exceptions to this would be Shining Armor and Cadence, and maybe even Big Mac and Cheerilee, because it's in the show. I try not to take the show that seriously... just ruins the fun of it.

Wait a sec. Nyx is a spawn of the lingering darkness in Princess Luna's heart? Holy crap, that makes Nyx a heartless by technicality.

I don't try to take it seriously either. It's just that it's really annoying when people put sexual preferences in areas where it doesn't exist. By the way would you agree with the things that I said in my last comment?

Well, all I can really say is to read it for yourself.. you'll most likely change that opinion by the end of it.

Yes, I don't like sexuality or mature subjects being associated with the show or its characters.. creates a lot of negative views of the show and those who watch it.

Any who... to be honest, to agree with your comment in quotes, would be thinking too much into it for me.

Sounds like me when I started to wonder about my sanity when I thought Fluttershy and her little squeaks was the cutest thing ever, after seeing a clip of her on youtube. But after finding EqD and drawing ponies I came to accept it for it's cuteness and just how good the show is. Plus the fandom makes it so interesting with all the art, fan fics, PMVs, etc. 'Past Sins' made me feel so many emotions throughout the reading..something that usually doesn't happen often when I read. Only other books to make me tear up were 'Where the Red Fern Grows' and 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.'

And as a side note, I put a picture of Twilight on my name badge(right next to my name) at work. Couldn't be happier.

Oh man, I just finished the entire story last night in one sitting. I didn't finish until six hours ago at six a.m. Completely and totally worth it. I'm not sure a story has gripped my heart and tugged it around like that before. And Twilight becoming the mom she is just made my heart soar and melt. So this picture is adorable, from a happier time for the two of them. Yay!

Same here. Except I drew this after reading that chapter. Then I had a hard time looking back at this pic after she became Nightmare Moon, was just too depressing. Thankfully there was the happy ending and thus I drew my other Nyx and Twilight pic as sort of a post 'Past Sins' event.

Thank you :)
Each one I draw has been a learning experience and thankfully I've managed to improve the quality of them since I first drew Applejack and Fluttershy. Nyx and Twilight has received the most shading of any of them so far, and a lot of it was experimental for me since it had to show that it was at night, while still being able to see them, and with some highlighted areas to suggest moon light.

Well according to the text he wrote after the story ended, he's thinking of doing short "slice of life" stories with Nyx and Twilight, should he decide to continue with it. So, i'm hoping he does.

And yes, thanks to this fic Twilight has moved up to be a favorite for me out of the mane 6. Pinkie Pie actually annoyed me while reading it. I think maybe they tried too hard at making her random? It was funny though that she still managed to break the 4th wall during the play.

Yes, I don't really like Pinkie Pie in any fic really, but i guess its rather hard to write for that random pink pony. And before this fic RBD was my favorite, now its Twilight :)

Really looking forward to the slice of life stories if/when they come!

And while I wait, I guess I'll have to try to think of more things to draw that Nyx and Twilight could do, since nothing else really inspires me at the moment. Already have an idea..so I guess I'll working on it soon or else it will bug me until I do :o
