Witherby Tales

And, purely by accident, the background is a total sausagefest. 

Recognize that mare on the cover of somepony’s newspaper from somewhere?

((Had everything planned for a perfectly-timed storyline to go up while I was gone, and then… life happened. Going to visit stormchaser-answers-mod for two weeks and change, and won’t have Photoshop or tablet access while I’m gone, so that storyline will be delayed until I can get back and get things drawn up.
Caneighdia via Croupenhagen it is! There may or may not pop up some random trip-related (or possibly pony-related) stuff on vixenscratch depending how busy Stormy-mod keeps me. ;3))

Special Delivery

stormchaser-answers:

It’s amazing how fast you can get used to something, sometimes.

It’s only been a week since the colts got into the kites, but it already feels like they’ve been at it forever. Maybe because Dewdrop especially spends so much of his days trying to find pegasi willing to do loops around his kite even if there’s nopony else playing. I think I saw Trade Winds at it yesterday – the mayor herself, dragooned into his latest pastime. Well, we’re all glad he’s upbeat, at least.

But it made for that much more of a surprise when he suddenly let go of a kite-string and scampered off, letting the kite tumble right into Featherduster and plaster across his face in the process.

More Ref Saturdays coming up! That means more of the Witherby ponies will be getting references posted - Ref Saturday is 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, provided I can get the art done.

Who should get a reference next?

The Founding of Horseshoe Corners

stormchaser-answers:

I found Dewdrop off by himself today.

He wasn’t happy about it, either. Poor little colt. It’s tough enough growing up in a little town like this; outside of fairs, festivals, and holidays, there’s often no ponies right at one’s own age, and when you’re that young, a few years older or younger makes a big difference. But when I went through that, at least I did so as a pegasus. Poor Dewdrop is the only earth pony colt in all of Horseshoe Corners right now, and the only filly, Cornflower, is almost grown up. The three ponies closest to Dewdrop in age are pegasi, and the next three are two unicorns and another pegasus.

Normally they get along, but today Dewdrop wound up alone, and not by his choice. He was stomping around town square looking like he had burrs stuck in his hooves. And on a day like this, with the sky kept clear as far as the eye can see, no foal should have any reason to be that miserable.

(( Look, it’s mod’s Special Somepony starting up his own ponyblog! It’s officially set in the same version of Equestria as Witherby Tales, as may be evident from the mention of a certain landmark… Go follow him! Now! ))

Reference Saturday!
Of course Witherby-mod is a dumbface and decides to start off with a pony that isn’t even going to appear in the story for quite some time. But she really really wanted a ref.
So… meet Mirage! The sweet-natured illusionist who loves to entertain with the images she calls upon. Her Changeling magic is restricted to changing between the two forms shown; she can’t change the shape of her wings or horn so she uses a simple illusion to at least try to make the tatters in her wings less noticeable.
Since her ref’s been posted, feel free to ask her questions, along with anypony who’s appeared in the story so far.
