Dancing Queens by Lopoddity Dancing Queens by Lopoddity
I wanna dance with somebody,
I wanna feel the heat with somebody!
I wanna dance with somebody,
With somebody who loves me~

"Oh, this song takes Trixie back. They played it at my high school homecoming, you know."

"Let's hope your dancing isn't as outdated as your music taste, Mother."

"Wha-! Why, Trixie will show you! Get over here, you squishy little marshmallow!"

"Hee hee! No, mother, no! I'm-haha!-I-I'm supposed to be leading! We need to correct our form!"

"Oh shush up and dance with me, darling. You'll just have to suffer through Mommy before your favorite dance partner gets here."

"Wheeee! You're already my favorite dance partner, Mommy!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a ton of people were asking me about why young Moondancer seems to adore his mama Maud so much, yet spurn his bio mom Trixie. I wondered how the heck ya'll got it into your heads that young Moondancer didn't like Trixie....then I realized I've barely ever drawn a positive interaction between the two. Whoops. Well, Trixie could be a bit overbearing, and she may have told Moondancer a few lies for his own protection (ie: that his father was dead), but Moondancer really did deeply, truly love Trixie. He still does. And even when Moony is an adult, "I wanna Dance with Somebody" (by Whitney Houston...who I guess would translate to Sapphire Shores in Equestria) is his song of choice to dance to with his mom.

oh yeah and also casual moondancer cutie mark reveal
sorry for it beig a little hard to see, here's a close up:

Moondancer if you just did what your dang cutie mark told you to do you'd probably be a much happier little pony in the long run: Moondancer by Lopoddity

Thats not how cutie marks work... okay, not trying to be a prick here Lop, and please forgive me if I do, but I see this a lot.

Their marks are a way of saying what makes them happy in life, a afterthought if you will to an accomplishment to finding what makes one feel happy and fulfilled. Mind this does not translate to a viable career choice though, so i'd imagine many ponies pursuing them in their off hours. Moondancer though is not most ponies

While I dislike him in many ways, he has an admirable goal: to be better, to be more, for himself foremost, but for Equestria as well. He's not merely content with what fulfills his immediate want or need or to be shackled by the tyranny of destiny, at least thats how I've read the guy

Moondancer isn't "shackled" by his cutie mark, oy vey. He could become a powerful sorcerer if he wanted to. His downfall comes from his lust for more and more power, all for selfish and cruel reasons....which lead to him experimenting with dark forces and going down a bad path. Moondancer's motivations are selfish, and that is why he's unhappy as a sorcerer, not because his cutie mark somehow restricts him from being anything but a dancer. Moondancer could have become a great wizard like Starswirl, helping ponies and making strides in magical discovery....but he didn't. That was never his goal. Moondancer wants power, prestige, and respect (to be feared), and he wants it now. When it turns out that those things won't just be handed to him on a silver platter, that's when he begins changing into the surly, perpetually brooding fellow we know now.

I'll be exploring more of Moondancer's motivations in an upcoming drawing.

D'aww, that is so cute. And yeah, Moony, why aren't you following your passion and instead trying to show up a chaos noodle cat who's always gonna outshine you in magic, despite you being a descendant of Starswirl the Bearded?

I find it fascinating that you have given both Trixie and Moondancer those extended tails, while the majority of your other pony characters have just the usual fluff of hair.  It allows these two to stand out a bit more; I love it~ ^ D^

I believe they are associated with European unicorns in mythology and are commonly passed down in StarSwil's descendants in Pandoraverse.

Beautiful artwork! I love seeing widdle Moondancer with his mother! And better yet, I love seeing poor Trixie happy, given all that she's gone through in this universe. 

Oh, and I love that song! Such an upbeat tune! May Whitney Houston rest in peace. She was an angel with the voice of one.

And it's awesome to see Moondance's cutie mark! He's so cute as a foal! Excellent work, Lop!
