Charity Commission - First Date by muffinshire Charity Commission - First Date by muffinshire
This is the last of my charity commissions for Movember, the annual fundraiser where participants are sponsored to grow a moustache over the course of November. It's a little late for various reasons, but the donation counts all the same!

This piece was commissioned by Percleader, who wanted to see what Twilight Sparkle and Shining Armor's parents might have been like when they were younger. Hey, Twilight Sparkle must get her awkwardness from somewhere, right?

Update: This piece was included in Equestria Daily's Drawfriend #653 post.

He is lucky; Unless this when he is going on his first date then nevermind, BUT if he is trying to propose HE, at least did not have the dad standing on the porch with a 12G!! XD

I has occured to me that ponies could achieve grater efficiency with generic romantic gestures by eating flowers.

How adowable! The way Twilight and Shining's parents first met.

I guess they'd never know that their kids would have an adopted Dragon for a stepsibling
