“Yoo-hoo! Oh, Mister Stallion! Yes, you! Tell me, darlin’, what’s your name?”


“Er...Bruce?”

“Well salutations and good afternoon to you, Mister Bruce! I'm Magnolia May. Enchanted and delighted to make your acquaintance!"


"Uh, same-"


"Mister Bruce." Here Magnolia fluttered her impressive eyelashes. "If I may be frank? I find you to be quite the handsome, rugged fellow.
Has anypony ever told you you have the prettiest gosh darned baby blue eyes I ever did see?”


Bruce pawed the ground, suddenly made nervous by this tiny, bold mare. "T-thank you-"


“It’s such a shame they’re offset by those...unfortunate eyebrows."


"...What?"


"Oh, sugarcube, it's alright. I'm sure you're a fairly on the go stallion, you simply don't have time to practice proper grooming! I empathize and sympathize, Mister Bruce." Magnolia patted a comforting hoof on Bruce's shoulder. Bruce's jaw worked, trying to make sense of what was happening.


"Fear not, darlin'. I am trained makeover warrior! Just skedaddle with me over to my salon, and you and I can whip those horrid overgrown dogbrows into shape! And maybe even do somethin' about your mane and coat! Wouldn't that be lovely?”

“Wot the fuck-”

“Ah, I like your spirit!" Magnolia looped her arm through Bruce's, and tugged him forward with surprising strength, for a unicorn. "Come with me, Darling Bruce, and I’ll take you on a journey from drab to fab!" She leaned on his shoulder, and looked up at him with eyes that shone with determination. "You will be my magnum opus.”

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

and that's the story of how Magnolia and Bruce became besties (that is, she randomly propositioned his scruffy behind in the street one day for a free makeover)

the makeover was long and arduous but after hours of labor she managed to make Bruce look so pretty
Bruce fucking hated it
but found himself inexplicably charmed by her eccentric ways
together, they became a friend duo with combined levels of sass and snark that could destroy a city

i'm a sucker for odd pairs of friends, and platonic male/female friendships, so these two jerks together hit all the right notes for me

"If I may be frank?"  Why would she want to be Frank?  I thought her name was Magnolia?  Isn't she happy being Magnolia?  LOL.

I'd love to see them verbally demolishing someone who tries to make fun of them or their friends.
It would be so amazingly, gloriously brutal.

I really want more of this! I'm just imagining Magnolia dragging Bruce to a make up store and making him try it on and Mag is all like "He is beauty, he is grace. He is Miss Equestria State" while Bruce is mentally stabbing her. Or Bruce taking Mag on some sort of shark hunt only to find out she absolutely loves it, including the fish guts. Plz enjoy me dorky ideas!

Good gosh, I love how you write her way of speaking. It's so... county-ish while at the same time sounding so proper, yet straightforward and blunt. Almost like a Southern Belle.

My gosh, I would kill to see a montage then the final results of Bruce's makeover. I can just see Bruce looking at himself in a mirror jaw dropped in absolute horror and what Magnolia did to him and then just her behind him just absolutely elated and cupping her hooves together as she looks at her "magnum opus" I swear, I've fallen complete head over heels in love with your universe and characters. So amazingly developed and just ah! Amazing.

I've been browsing for a full hour, damn you, I got college homework to do! You've made such different and unique characters, I really feel they truly stand out. And their designs are actually not painful to the eyes. They're not just mish mashes of the two ponies, but have enough characteristics of both parents yet different enough to be their own unique character.

I love leaving comments on people's work that'll make them happy ^^
But truly, of all the next gen work and art I've seen, yours is the only one I feel I can follow due to how believable all the characters seem :)

Has anyone dubbed any of your work? Because I feel a great need to :3 It's the VA in me wanting to give these characters a voice lol.
