We've got to keep moving, Spike by MMMenagerie We've got to keep moving, Spike by MMMenagerie
"...we're not alone"


Twi and Spike in a distopian future. The idea of giving Twi tattoos of her fallen comrades' cutie marks seemed less depressing originally ;-;. Maybe they're all still alive somewhere.

Tried to make Spike look slightly older, although who knows what that means in dragon terms.

Well, considering that in season 3 finale, Twilight become alicorn thanks to (EoH, unfinished spell, friendship), it would make sense if she gained special talents from her fallen comrades as a goodbye gift or if Twilight fused them with herself with some magic spell instead of letting them die.

Twilight may be alone in a dangerous word, but with special talents and power of her friends, brother and princesses, she will not die so easy, and maybe one day she will find a way to bring her friends and princesses back.

Just an idea what pop to my mind

I'm guessing this is either one of Twilight's Nightmares that she has once a week or this is some weird time where they have to fight back the returned forces of evil.
My guess is that this is 2 days since they had gotten vanished out and this is when they will discover that the Rest of the Mane 6 are around here.
I know Fluttershy was the 1st to be found. The next ones I'm guessing will be found are Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Apple Jack.
Then when they reunite, Spike ends up reverting back to his non greedy self of course, they form a plan to take back what was theirs and they defeat the forces of evil and they all lived happily ever after:D

I think it would be more depressing if she carried her friend's elements in her satchel :(

The concept kinda reminds me of the "Same As It Never Was" episode of TMNT. :tmnt2:
It would be awesome if such a dark idea could pass once again thanks to the excuse that it's only happening in some alternate reality or something... *sigh*
I don't believe it will ever happen, but it could at least inspire an epic fanfic! ;)

As for the drawing itself, I have to say that I really like the idea of the tattooed cutie marks of her friends. The BBBFF note on Shining Armor's is a particularly nice touch. :nod:
Giving Twilight a bag was a good idea, because it looks like something useful that she actually would want to carry around.
The background is nice and makes the general atmosphere even heavier. And I'm glad that at least she still has Spike! :happycry:

I thought that Twilight had been exposed to cutie pox (as a bio weapon?), but was bravely pressing on despite knowing that there is no cure. I have no idea if that is more or less depressing. :)

If you do, please include a badass future Derpy with an eyepatch. Because for some reason as I was drawing this, I was imagining that the presence Twilight was sensing was Derpy's. :P
