Out of the Ashes, a New Story To Be Told by Huussii Out of the Ashes, a New Story To Be Told by Huussii
Had this rough idea for quite a while but didn't know how would I exactly present it. I did want to focus on trying to bring the scale of destruction into another light. Afterall that tree was pretty damn huge and old when you construct it by looking at the interiors. It had to be a significant loss for everyone, simply because of its age and place in history. Not to mention that amount of books that were certainly destroyed.

Of course, realistically a totally leveled tree wouldn't sprout again right in the middle of the trunk, but I took a little bit of freedom so it'd make sense in both artistic side and story viewpoint. I like to think that one day the old overgrown hollow remains of the golden oak would become one with the grown sprout, effectively renewing the tree in its glory.

I kind of regret not putting Spike in there. I just forgot about him after I threw away the idea of having the whole mane six gazing at the sproutling around Twilight.

(EDIT): There's a strange black line around the bottom appearing occasionally.. It's something on Deviantart's side, not being present in the full res picture. The whole site has been laggy as hell recently.

Well, we know the library had a basement, and if enough debris and soil was knocked loose to fill it, something could grow there.
(maybe)

Just beautiful! THIS is what I would love to see in season 5! The castle is great, but the treehouse was so... cozy and warm!

I agree, one of the thing that made Twilight at least different than the rest of royalty was her extremely humble way, I mean, live in a house that's just a big tree end been much fancier than any castle, even if made out of crystal hahaha

That castle needed to be a tree, man.

And just to put it out there, I probably had the same expression Twi did when that crazy, jerk-tail freak blew up the beloved library. Seriously, dude, that was sad. :(

Call me a hipster but I really like the tree better than the castle.  A better castle would have been to have the tree grow back like...ummm...a big ass tree castle ...with blossoms...and hookers.

The library... so many memories but this, I think, captures it perfectly.
I hope it becomes some sort of memorial in Season Five, and is that a small sapling I see?
