Queen Whiskey's ride back home by ToasterRepairUnit Queen Whiskey's ride back home by ToasterRepairUnit
“-Thank you, noble alicorn, for our safe arrival!”
“-GO. AWAY.”

ah...not too proud of this one, especially the colors. I mean...I __really__ suck at shading with colors. ITS TOO MESSY, IT MIXES UP WITH EVERYTHING AND IT NEVER LOOKS RIGHT FFFFFFFDSDOFN this is why I'd rather do it grayscale. but noooooo Mr. photoshop here doesn't like the idea of having black and white for shading with an overlay of color. or am I doing it wrong or something? too late.

anyway, chapter 34. Cyber-Blackjack wearing her crown of whiskey bottles and riding a mutant alicorn. drew it for www.asklittlepip.tumblr.com

edit: her cutie mark's effect was removed by SAI and it looks matte. sorry about that. also I never thought it'd be THIS big. it wasn't even like that in photoshop

The song playing on Blackjack's pipbuck had to be flight of the valkyries.

Awesome scene and you captured it so well.

if anything they'd be mutants. stuff like hellhounds and centaurs would be considered abominations.

THE GODDESS FINDS THIS...DEGRADING

At least the whiskey crown doesn't look out of place. I think Somber just really wanted to add that in somehow.

The artwork is good, but about that scene in the story I wrote this as comment:

Littlepip AGREED to ride alicorns who can read minds after negotiating the destruction of their mother with Red Eye? She is smarter than that. Interrogation should be standard procedure here, especially after the two were found together, and shouldn't be. Alicorns AGREED to carry them all the way, rather than just throw them out of the camp, or tell Red Eye's troops to do it? I just don't get it. Oh, and Red Eye could tell them not to kill Littlepip, but Black Jack should be fair game. Except if The Godless interfered. Even if they agreed to transport them to Tepony tower, they shouldn't let them ride, but keep them afloat in uncomfortable positions by telekinesis, so they scream and beg to be put down all the way. I mean, alicorns would want to keep their dignity from these dirtstriders, right?

So alicorns can land on top of the Tepony tower unmolested? Aren't there defences or something? If so, Red Eye's griffins would have an easy time taking over, I think. Unless Ministry shields protect the roof access. Where was "The mighty alicorn hunter" during all that? Why didn't he aggro Lacunae?

That said, that flight was glorious. Almost as glorious as Celestia's gun. Alicorns, even UNITY version, are magnificent creatures.

Yeah I have to admit, as awesome as that whole scene was, it did kind of bug me at first.
After going over this whole event again it may not be as hard to hand-wave away as it initially seems. We know the Goddess is both extremely arrogant and also not always particularly prudent, so it could well be that she/it was content to just scan BJ's mind and not do the same to LP later on (granted even the Goddess isn't so foolish as to not realize having the two of them in the same room is not a good idea :D). Red Eye of course wouldn't want to risk the plan getting out to the Goddess so he would most likely tell his forces to get them out as fast as possible. Its also worth knowing that at this point in the story Steelhooves was off with the AJ's Rangers rather than traveling with Littlepip, and it was stated that Lacunae let the rest of the tower know that they were coming.

As for Blackjack being able to talk the alicorns into giving them a ride, I'll just chalk that up to the crazy awesomeness that is Queen Whiskey. :D

She did convince Lacunae in their first meeting that they 'really' do not want her as part of the Unity. Maybe she is just got the gift of the gab with crazy alicorns.

Ha! This scene was priceless! Nothing like watching BJ take those "oh so superior" alicorns down a notch or two, Lacunae excluded of course. :D
