Rise and Shine, Tavi! by muffinshire Rise and Shine, Tavi! by muffinshire
"Rise and shine, Tavi! It's ya birthday! It's your B, to the I-R to the..."
"Wh-what is all this?"
"Breakfast! I made you pancakes, scrambled eggs..."
"Uh, are those the shells?"
"No! Well, yes. Bits of them, anyway. I couldn't get them all out."
"Is that your hoofprint on the pancakes?"
"It was only on the floor for a second, honest! Five second rule, and all that! Besides, I wiped my hooves when I got back from the farm. Only the best fresh ingredients for you, Tavi!"
"Why are there three teabags in this cup?"
"I didn't know how strong you liked it, so you can just take some out to make it weaker."
"And the rose? I hope you don't expect me to eat that, because I only did it that one time..."
"I couldn't find a vase. And well, orange juice is mostly water, isn't it? It's clean! I washed most of the dirt off it!"
"Have you... have you done something to your hair?"
"Well, it kinda caught fire a little bit. I couldn't get the stove lit and..."
"What!? Are you hurt? When did this happen?"
"About five a.m., I guess. It's nothing, it'll grow out!"
"You've been up since five making this?"
"Yeah, well, y'know... it's for a special pony. I mean, if you don't want it, I can just..."
"Thank you. It looks wonderful."

Awww... I'd still eat it for Vinyl. :)
DungeonBrony Featured By Owner Edited Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Are you kidding? It looks pretty good to me!

But it tastes of looove xD
EqFAzrael Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Student General Artist
Are you... a changeling? ~raises eyebrow~
DungeonBrony Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No!I mean.. wait, what?
I'm sure I don't know what you are talking about.

But if I did a meal lovingly prepared would be delicious. :)
EqFAzrael Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Student General Artist
Changelings feed off love. :XD:
DungeonBrony Featured By Owner Edited Oct 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL I know, I was roleplaying that I was a changeling and trying to hide it, poorly :)
EqFAzrael Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Student General Artist
Sadly, I am able to read changelings pretty darn well. But your a good little changeling. My OC is the Archpony of Death. XP Super OP.
DungeonBrony Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Azrael? Well... he does look pretty hardcore.
I guess when you create OCs you can make them as OP as you like lol.

I love how she shows concern for Vinyl when she says she caught her own hair on fire, They're so cute together!

D'aww. Right in the heart. I don't like this shipping, but as platonic roommates, I like them very much. :D

Coming straight from the heart!
The-Syreth-Clan Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That's a Vinyl Scratch I like. Many just judge her by the "wubs" so she can't do anything else but use "teh wubs" for everything and everytime. You weren't like that, and for that, you're bucking awesome. ;)
Blackvegetable Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013
Well, you gotta hope there isn't any resulting food poisoning... ^^;
BB-K Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
