Bright Light: "At this rate I’ll have enough test subjects to finish this chapter within a month."
Rockbiter: "And who do you have to thank for that…?"
Bright Light: "…maybe even start on the next thesis, if I have spares, that is."
Mod: I just can’t, really. These two are totally on my mind now and I just doodle them left and right. Plus, the more I think about it the more I realize that despite being seemingly so different and contrasting, they’re exactly the same - just two different sides of the same coin.
Plus it’s adorable to see Rockbiter trying to bait a compliment and getting utterly shot down.
Mod: Introducing two brand-new characters born from wayward ways of minds of ShadyMod and mine. I would like to introduce Rockbiter, the Earth Pony Miner and Bright Light, an unicorn gem-caster.
What’s the purpose of these two? Good question, for I don’t precisely know myself! They might appear as background characters, or perhaps they might develop into a separate blog, or maybe they’ll serve as a side-story and an exposition troupe? Time will tell.
Bright Light is a gem-caster, a type of unicorn that focuses on attuning the magical gems of Equestria to channel mana through as amplifiers. She’s withdrawn, focused on her work and research. Quiet and sarcastic need be, she does not take well to disturbances to her work space nor to majority of ponyfolk. As such, she lives as a hermit only occasionally paying others a visit when she is in need of supplies. Recently, she had settled in near a quiet mining town in eastern Equestria.
Rockbiter, on the other hand, is quite welcoming to others. This large earth pony is both strong in body and spirit, quite dependable and certainly a jovial soul to be around, if not slightly childish and too straight-forward in his mannerisms. An outgoing type of pony, who enjoys a good work out just as much as he enjoys a relaxing trek through the nearby woods - stumbling often into a certain hermit’s abode.
fight crime simply live their days, from time to time facing whatever hurdles life may throw at them.
Dear readers, I’d love to hear your opinions on these two individuals as well as your interests - what would you wish for me to do with them? The decision is strongly in your hands!
Mod: Last image is huge, Tumblr butchered the gif. Imgur mirror to fullrez.
Mod: So you’re probably wondering where the update went…
Well, I’m still looking for it. So is Cheer, and thank heavens Shady’s there to help him.
