aaaaanndd Calamity and Velvet's colt (Pegasus, wings hidden)
No names yet... any suggestions? lol
Dedicated to Kkatman, for the awesomeness that is Fallout Equestria!
Just a little idea that came into my head
OMG EQD drawfriend www.equestriadaily.com/2013/03… didn't even notice! THANK YOU

As for the names, I think that Homage and Littlepip's filly (who, by the way, would likely need a magic/sciencey doohicky to allow a mare to impregnate itself since... well, outside of Littlepip being stuck in the Crusader mainframe, she and Homage are both... you know, MARES) should be named Pip-Jockey, to mix up Littlepip's name, and Homage being a DJ wizard... (Okay, maybe it should be something else, but that's the best I can think of now!)
As for Calamity and Velvet's colt, I think he should definitely be named Peacemaker, to mix in the oxy-moronic concept of the peace-loving Velvet and the trigger-happy Calamity. (And this one I'm SURE of, dammit!!!)
As for the story... well, since Winter Wrap-Up shows that the winters of the north hold ice-like monsters such as the Windegos, I think a bunch of mutated ice-critters walloping Equestria with a cold front would be enough to make Littlepip jump out of the Crusader mainframe to personally kick their asses. Only now, Littlepip's been saddled with a "new generation" of adventurers since her old posse had been effectively forced into retirement during the few decades or so that she's been stuck in the Crusader mainframe. Long story short, they'll be heading north, possibly to the Crystal Empire, or even beyond, in order to....
Drum roll for the ensuing joke, please....
Stop a NUCLEAR WINTER!!!
Oh, and even though you've only thought as far as Littlepip and the two new kids, I think that this picture could at least provide a few ideas for new allies and enemies alike: pantzar.deviantart.com/art/Fac…
Although, if you do use the picture of inspiration, the new characters probably should not be direct lifts from the picture, since they're not only done by another artist, but as a commission for somebody else too - someone who hasn't been active on the site for a while too, I'm afraid .
In a world full of magical talking ponies is it so odd to say two mares could have a kid?
Maybe something such as Songbolt or Singshot. (Those are bad and are a bit too fluffy for the Equestrian Watseland though)
For Littlepip and Homage's Filly, I'd go with something that mixes Homage's background as a DJ, and Littlepip's small stature. Maybe even keep Pip in there, since it's part of Littlepip's name and the emphasis on her Pipbuck.
Perhaps even something involving the word Vinyl, going back to the original DJ PON3.
The thing is it depends more on their personalities, especially for ponies. Characters in MLP and even MLP fanfics all relate to their skillset, abilities, and their cutie mark.
You'd need to establish some basic idea of the characters' personalities before you give them names. It'd be like trying to build a pony around a name, instead of the other way around.
I'd imagine that the Colt probably retains his father's deadshot accuracy and his speech patterns. He probably has some singing ability and maybe even some minor experience in treating wounds. Probably not quite as good with a Workbench as Calamity, or quite as rough as Calamity was. (His mother was Velvet Remedy, after all.)
The Filly would probably be at least a half-decent technician, specifically with radios. Keep in mind that while Littlepip is hooked into the system at the end of the story, she IS able to communicate periodically with people on the outside.
"The good news however is they've rigged up enhanced communication between the disparate systems. Not only does this mean (insert spoiler) but they both will be able to periodically converse with us down here as well"
So while I would imagine the Filly spent extended periods of time conversing with Littlepip and likely was taught everything Littlepip knows about Pipbucks, Littlepip never becomes a part of her daily life, which means Homage alone would have raised her. Homage was a scavenger before settling in Tenpony, so she would have probably taught the Filly hacking and lockpicking. And assuming Homage stayed in Tenpony, the Filly probably learned a lot about broadcasting systems and such.
Anyway, as much as I'd love to go more in-depth about what I'd imagine for both characters, the reality is I started this post only wanting to say a few things about the names. So I'll leave it at that.
well... hmmm... I mean, I'm pretty sure it can be done somehow...
nicely done, although I think that adding some shading to it would make this pic look even better. Not too much because it would interfere too much with the whiteness of the winter around them, but just enough to show that they aren't flat.
No way. Even if there would exist any story, it wouldn't be worse if those characters wouldn't be relatives of main cast.
Actually, it would be even better. What, close relations to some major character is some way of showing off? Or is it some proof of awesomeness? Or the sign of story's quality? I doubt that!
Well drawn, but still, characters are not really good.
Let me just say i really enjoy your art pieces!
Even if there was situation where some author would like to write a fic about some characters, I wouldn't allow that. Even to Somber. (Especially to Somber)
That's just my pennies about this way of thinking. And about using kids of main chars - I simply don't approve this, just because mostly it is "mai story is moar ossom wiz zem!"
And the art in my gallery isn't mine. It belongs to appleman86, but based on my FoEfic.
