dance like nopony's watching by egophiliac dance like nopony's watching by egophiliac
Poor Bon Bon. She's usually willing to go along with Lyra's strange ideas, but she just can't get the hang of this "bipedal" business.

Bad day = random pony doodles. Nothing cheers me up quite like little rainbow equines frolicking and being adawable all over the place.

It's been two years and 208 pages of pony art favourites, but this is still one of my favourite images. Bravo!

Wow, I this so much. There's so much simple joy in this.

Would you mind if I used this as a base for two other ponies? I'd give you full credit for the picture, but I totally understand if it's not okay; this is totally yours :)

Thank you! I do not allow my art to be made into bases, but thanks for asking. :heart:

I love it, really you caught the characters.

Who came up with the idea of Lyra and Bon Bon being lovers? I don't think it's wrong or anything. Just wondering.
egophiliac Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
No idea. I think people just noticed them together a lot and thought they were cute (I sure do). c:
CedarWoods Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Now here's an idea. Imagine if on a future Hearts and Hooves Day episode, all the couples were lined up waiting for some event, and although there would be an absolute uproar if they actually said Lyra and Bon-Bon were a couple, they COULD show them together (indicating that they were in fact a couple). I know there's obviously no such thing as a lesbian pony couple in real life (but hey, this is a show about diversity).

(Actually, homosexuality has been seen in horses, but Idk about female horses. It would be AMAZING if they showed them there as a couple.excited happy 

(yes I know late response)
CedarWoods Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey better late than never. That's interesting about gay horses. Although it should be remembered, that most creatures on this planet, view sex in the way the Bible thumpers would prefer humanity to see it (merely for procreation). Therefor a male horse nibbling on the penis of another male, or mounting him (I assume since they can't really give one another hoof jobs) should not be viewed as the horses themselves being gay. Sure enough they may be engaging in a gay sex act, but the mere engaging in said actions, does not make one automatically gay.
I personally have no interest in men on that level, but if I were so inclined, I could have sex with a man, and not consider myself gay. To be fully one way or another, I believe that you must be committed to a full loving relationship with at least one person (of either gender). Full loving, meaning that you enjoy more about that person, other than simply their hot body. Other than a few animals which mate for life, and some higher primates, we are the only creatures on this planet, who view love and sex as anything more than the most basic functions they were created for. Although I give love more room, since it seems obvious that parental love is present in a number of creatures.

Still it would be awesome if they showed them as a confirmed couple. Have you seen Rainbow Rocks? It was better than the first Equestria Girls movie (in my opinion), but there's a brief shot (probably 3 seconds at the most) showing Lyra and BonBon singing a duet at a piano. This could simply be construed as them being friends, but I believe, that it's open for interpretation, and mine personally, is "Thank you."
RainbowKitteh278 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's just the same with straight horses. Let's say a male and a female are mating or preforming sexual actions, that doesn't make them straight unless they're in love.
I completely agree with you, that's actually a very intelligent thing to say :nods: !
No seriously, you're actually one of the smartest people I have met on this website, you're just stunning.

That would have been great Aww 
Rainbow Rocks was okay, it wasn't great though. I can agree that it's better than Equestria Girls movie though.
I think they're like a couple. I don't think friends are that close with each other(especially since they always appear together) but a sisterly love could be possible.
Aww yess I remember that part <3 The homophobic reactions to it are just saddening for me.
I'm glad we could both express ourselves with facts and opinions in this matter :TipOfTheHat: Little Pixel Heart Little Pixel Heart Little Pixel Heart 
CedarWoods Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Well thank you kindly for your thoughtful words. :)

I think Lybonra is a thing, because of all the subtle hints they throw around in the show (and not just them almost always being together). I suppose they could be sisters, but until the cannon show proves it otherwise, I'm going to continue regarding them as lovers.

I don't think that Vinyltavia is an actual thing. I have no problem with people shipping them, and enjoy all the great art and stories that have blossomed from this unlikely duo. However due to the fact that there is not one shred of evidence to suggest it in the cannon show, I do not believe it to be true. Although to be honest, I'm totally open to Vinyl being bi, and Tavi having been involved in a brief fling with her at some point.

As for the homophobic comments, yes that's sad that people still feel the need to put other people down in order to boost themselves up. However I've found that the key to dealing with offensive comments (at least online) is to try and find a way to twist it around, and turn it into something positive. If someone calls you a 'Sissy homo faggot pansy' (if you're a man) or a 'Loudmouthed bossy cunt' (if you're a woman), respond with:

For man: "I'm more partial to roses, but whatever floats your boat."

for the woman: "On behalf of my opinionated vagina, I thank you."

Just for example :)

Here is a link to a playlist I put together of songs done by Flora (an independent band that my niece, nephew & I put together) have done. Feel free to download any of the tracks where downloading is available, and to follow us on Soundcloud or Facebook (if you have accounts in either place).…

PS: I wrote the words to 'I Wanna Hold Your Attention' (except for my nephew who wrote the rap), and to 'My Life is Alright.' 

PPS: If you like any of these songs (even though most of them are still in demo form) please share them with friends and family. We'd be grateful :):):)

I'm not fully sure how to express the emotions that this picture conveys to me. Think about someone who's from another universe, visiting our own. Now imagine that in this other universe, they don't know how to describe sheer exhilaration, joy, happiness, frivolity, ecstasy, or anything fundamentally good and happy like that.... because they don't have stuff like that there.

Now you understand how I feel when I'm trying to describe to you how this pic just completely makes my day.
