“Cupcake, you magnificent mare, you!”
Cupcake is Pandora’s much-beloved best friend and much-beleaguered personal assistant/minion. Cupcake is highly inexpressive and almost unfazable, speaking in a flat monotone and hardly ever cracking a smile. Because of these unsettling tendencies, ponies tend to write her off as weird, or plain, or boring. Their loss.
Cupcake’s stoic gaze hides a sharp sense of humor that she normally expresses in a torrent of deadpan snark. She is intelligent, loyal, knowledgeable in a surprising number of fields, and hyper-competent, truly the best minion a girl could want. Pandora values Cupcake’s input and will often use her as a sounding board to cook up new chaotic schemes. If they manage to pull off a plan, it’s usually Cupcake who is responsible. Despite this, Cupcake is perfectly content to simply play the docile assistant to her bombastic boss, and sticks by her through thick and thin, for whatever crazy reason.

So. After some consideration and discussion with you, my dear watchers, I decided not to retcon Discord being the one to get pregnant and lay Pandora's egg. It'll be him, not Twilight (who would have given live birth, no egg, sorry that wasn't clear on my last deviation). I wasn't super thrilled about the change to Twilight, because I'm not a fan of pregnancy cliches in stories (which are over-dramatic and silly because they have to be, as real life pregnancy is actually pretty boring). After some thought and planning I figured out exactly what direction I want to take the story, and that involves Discord trying to make a nest out of books in Twilight's library, while she frantically tries to figure out exactly what will hatch out of the egg (and thus codenames it Pandora). Birth of Pandora will hopefully be the next comic I do
I don't normally upload sketches, but I loved Discord’s stupid smug face so much i decided to throw some sloppy colors on it and post it. Look at that proud papa! I like to think this is exactly how he told Celestia he’d made a baby with her most prized student
Sooooo. I'm considering retconning the whole “Discord is the one who gets pregnant” element to Pandora’s story. I went with that route because it seemed fun and silly, but I think Twilight being the one to undergo a very chaotic pregnancy could provide better story material. She's probably gonna be burping soap bubbles and craving a gallon of chocolate milk all while Discord is snickering in the background
So, uh, read up, Twilight. And remember, don’t panic.
i might be poking fun at how silly women’s care books can be also why does everybody draw preggo ponies looking like they swallowed a whale, like dang, pregnant tummies are not that big
Hey, and thanks for visiting. I'm a total art hack with a fondness for drawing girly ponies and giant robots. I'm in a passionate love affair with all things animation, and love cartoons, great movies, puppies, lame puns, bad daytime television, and classic literature.|
