Love...? Ridiculous...


--

I've thought about painting Chrysalis for a good while. Simply picturing her just being her seemed a bit bland, so I decided to go for kind of an aftermath picture of the episode ending. Where did she land? Did she ever survive?

Somewhere far, far away in the southern borderlands of Equestria...

Really nice. What's your policy on people using this for a custom-ordered playmat? And if that is OK, any chance of getting a higher-rez file? 3675 x 2175 would be ideal.

Then how do you explain me becoming the Element of Courage, and me being able to take her out with my wand single-handedly? Besides, I didn't take her out during that wedding. I took her out a day after Twilight's princess coronation. The same day I crashed my ship in Equestria. I'm a Human!

"It appears, based upon the medical examinations, that our Queen appears to be suffering from a combination of metastatic thaumatic cancer, internal hemorrhage and organ failure, caused by catastrophic genetic and cellular damage as a result of a love overdose from the magic shield that expelled her, which was saturated by Princess Cadence's love-based magic. She's not likely to last very long."

"Poor Queen: She invaded Equestria for more love and power than anyone ever imagined, and she got exactly that, though not in the way she wished for. Rather ironic, isn't it?"

Centipede: "So... with her upcoming passing, shall we start making arrangements?

Pincer: "Arrangements? For what?"

Centipede: "For Princess Pupa ascension to the throne."

Pincer: (smirking) "Ah yes, about that. We have recently... discovered a new set of documents regarding her majesty's decisions regarding her succession. (takes out folder of documents and hooves them to him)

(Centipede read them and his eyes begin to wide in shock. He looks up to him)

Centipede: Is this... legal?

Pincer: It will be made legal. Just roll with it and I assure you your position will remain secure.

Centipede: (biting his lip and pausing) ... very well. (Shuts document folder and slides them back to him across the table. They both stand up, ready to part) When shall I announce this?

Pincer: Not yet. Just as soon as... it happens. And that shan't be long.

Centipede: Very well, then. (salutes him before he leaves) Mr President

Not well, likely.

Though, I think we're already treading old ground with this. I mean no offensive, but a lot of your changeling are becoming rather repetitive. If it's about brutally killing chrysalis horribly, it's about the blood-shed between opposing factions in a power vacum and Pincer and Centipede just sitting around moping. It's just that we've kind of done this already, more than once.

Well, those aforementioned aspects are best to be avoided, but really, just how about writing more lighthearted stuff for them and pics in general. I mean, I remember you telling me about certain RPs and omakes you now regret writing. The whole war aspect is definitely somethingyou could reel back on - a lot of rps/omakes just end up really depressing and bleak after a while, you know?

Yea, it certainly does. Though it's hard to write something nice to a race that is portrayed, in fanon, canon and semi-canon as a bunch of evil pricks.

:iconmagicman001:
MagicMan001 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
In canon? Yes. In fanon? Are you sure you're reading the same fics I am? I swear, I cannot for the life of me find one fic where the changelings or Chrysalis for the matter are portrayed as anything like the show. They're almost always portrayed as innocent, simpering woobie victims of pony oppression. YOu know why I hate it so much? It's because I literally see it NON STOP in the fandom!

You're in a conundrum here. You can't be too nice to them because you don't like how evil they are (and I can respect that), but if you're too horrible to them and subsequently make the ponies look even worse, it has the opposite effect and fuels Changeling Apologists/Sympathizers, which I gather is the opposite of what you want.

I guess I would suggest not necessarily being nice to them per say, just reel back the pain and misery quite a bit. At least, if you're gonna deal out punishment, give it only to changelings who deserve it and cut nice changelings a break, just like you would do for ponies. Just a sort of slice-of-life thing.

While this is a strikingly effective picture, my problem is how it only helps further give fodder to 'Chrysalis and Changeling Apologism', completely excusing anything bad she or her army did to make them look like victims which is itself completely unjustified.

BrutalityInc Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2014
I don't know, it seems quite gratifying for us readers to see her like that - beaten and broken, her ambitions ruined and dreams dashed to dust, and all this is caused by, of all things, the very power that she desired to have. 

I suppose this painting is open to interpretation.

Indeed, absolutely, that is how WE perceive it, for the those who go by "oh, poor innocent Chwissy! She just wanted to feed her people, waaaah!" this is fodder for them and considering how Changeling Apologism already aggravates me, that's not a good thing.

Fair enough, I'm sorry to hear it aggravates you.

But tell me, why do you feel the need to write all these replies to me (I've got about five from you today alone); you could've just make your point in one or two. Your reply here makes pretty much the same point as the one prior and here I was talking about a somewhat different matter (my friend's rps) in a conversation with my friend.

Well i like talking... sometimes i overdo it. I just find it a bit tiring to see you mention this subject in every cute changeling pic on the web and bring it up in every pic. Sorry if this sounds offensive every time i see it i am like "Oh my god dude... GET OVER IT!" of course that's the exaggerated immature version of it. My official version is... don't you get tired of speaking about it? Why do you talk about it if it aggravates you so much?

I'm sorry, but I don't do this on EVERY single changeling pic. I really don't comment that much and two recent changeling pics, "The Times They Are A Changeling and "From Cradle to Grave" were two pics I had commissioned, and even when I do comment on changeling pics, come on, I don't talk about JUST this topic.

But yes, maybe I do bring it up more than I should in places, but it's partly because I like to see what other people's opinions are. Yeah, maybe I should delve into some other topics, but again, come on, it's not like I'm out to annoy or aggravate you personally.

Well, as the first four comic shows, that apologetic interpretation is proven wrong the moment they conquered and drained the Cat kingdom, subverted Ponyville, foalnapped the CMC and then try to drain Twilight Sparkle of her magic during the Secretariat Comet Crisis.

Ah, but the fact it continues shows what little affect it has had. Apologists can either ignore it as non-canon (they have that option) or well, just simply find another excuse. They always can; that's how apologism of whatever kind works.

It's easier for people to picture the good side of a villain rather than a non villain arrogant asshole. For that matter i have an idea about Blueblood to write a fic about him. It's a somewhat adaptation/ponification of "The Game" with Michael Douglas... he plays Douglas.

I so want to put this pic in my headcanon, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Now that we've got a villain just as evil with Chrysalis, and with battles 100 times more epic, basically outshining her in all areas except villain song, and who's still evil and still breathing, maybe now fans can hope for his return and stop speculating about Chrysalis returns. If Meghan can confirm Tirek is stealing attention from Chrysalis she might be able to bring herself to confirm her death. Then again, while many didn't want her to be dead, despite liking Tirek more they'd have preferred it if he had died... I guess this is what happens when they actually get the "dark villain survives epic battle" scenario.

Oh my Pony! This is just amazing artwork, words cannot even explain. The saying 'A picture paints a thousand words' is definitely referencing to this right here. I love the shading, and the brights fluorescent green of the eyes and blood splatter. She looks as if she is dead - beaten and fallen from the sky... but don't get too close! For she might actually not be dead.. like an animal that is sleeping with it's eyes open wide. You just never know.

This is something I would definitely print out and frame on my wall, in every part of my house. This is more than just 'well done' this is extraordinarily awesome. Un-doubtely %20 cooler than all other art of Queen Chrysalis.
