Nyx's Birthday by sgtgarand Nyx's Birthday by sgtgarand
It's been a year since Nyx was 'born' by the resurrection spell and Twilight finding her in the Everfree forest. So, it's time for Nyx's first official birthday party. It's not a big Pinkie Pie party, but instead, a nice quiet party to celebrate with those dearest to her.


Numbers Game:
-7 hours to complete

*First wallpaper sized image that I've drawn*

Twilight's facial expression was inspired by one of :icontakua770: 's vectors.
And :icondreatos: for the concept drawing of Nyx

The fanfic can be found here: Past Sins

Came to mind this kind of dialogue.^^

Nyx: Wha... this is... to me?

Spike: Yeah, you're already six years old^^

Twilight: Happy birthday, dear.

Nyx: Oh, thank you mom, and thanks you Spike *blows out the candles*

who is Nyx exactly?

You'd really have to read 'Past Sins,' that should be linked in the description, to really get to know who the character is.

But, the short version is that she was created from a resurrection spell that was meant to bring back Nightmare Moon as a separate entity from Luna. But the spell was interrupted and the product was a filly with the physical traits of Nightmare Moon, except she didn't have the same personality as NMM. Twilight ends up finding her and names the filly Nyx based on a black coated character from one of her story books.
