Things Ponies Do by RedApropos Things Ponies Do by RedApropos
The ponies ponder on what they may have done...
Under their glassy-eyed, fuzzy, adorable cuteness, they have the ability to KILL!


I would like to clear a few things up for the commenters.

- I read the comic where Chrysalis comes back. I own the book. Stop telling me that Chrysalis comes back, because I KNOW! XD

- No, Sombra was not "a lifeless cloud of gas, so he was never alive to begin with." Seriously, come on. He wasn't a "cloud monster" either.

- Yes, I know about the horn fragment thing. I've known since forever. Whether or not it actually MEANS anything is up to the writers of the show.

- When Twilight and Fluttershy say "we," they refer to all of their friends who faced Sombra's wrath. This includes Spike, Cadance, Shining Armor, their use of the Crystal Heart, and all that entails.

- Is Sombra dead? Is he still alive? Will he come back? Until the writers make these decisions once and for all, ALL of our theories are wrong.

The over all design and aesthetic of the art is fine. I find the lines are done very well and very crisply which is good for this style of art. The overall plot and originality is good. I feel the coloring and shading could be improved on significantly. The characters feel flat and monotone for the most part. I'd like to point out that the eyes are done extremely well and should be drawn in this manner all the time. I really liked the characters breaking the fourth wall near the end. I personally find that bit enjoyable. Filler Text.

Hello Everypony I want to point that English is not my first language so please be patient.

Vision-Wow That was something that I didnt though, but in all seriousness is he really dead? I dont know he could be getting ready for his comeback!!!.

Originality- Im not sure you are the first one to point it out but if you are, good job my friend.

Technique- While the comic was really good I've never being fan of the wuzzy lines, and the fact that they lack background wasnt helping, thankfully the story hook me up and i didnt pay to much attention to it.

Impact- Like I said before I was hook with the story, so it reach me and made me thing of him which to be honest since that episode i havent though much about him.

good job over all this is a Full fav for me :D

*appers through a portal with sombras horn locked away in a type of crystal with rune marking on it* ok manage to find sombra's horn and used a seal so powerful that it would take 184,762,395,000 years with discord, celestia, luna, cadence and twilight's magic put together just to crack the seal zencarion seals are very powerful and very hard to master for only a menber of a clan can use it

CoffeeAndSardines Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015
I got the impression he was already dead, just sort of lurking as a spirit, trying to return via the crystal heart.  Like Sauron, really.
XGluon Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2015
...Actually, according to the IDW comic that features Sombra's backstory...
...he isn't dead after all.  Remember how his horn was still completely intact?  Well, his horn contains his dark essence(in other words, his spirit).

well here the thing...
chrysalis lives with fluffle puff while sombra a is off eating crystles and wearing sombers

I, think Chrysalis is dead.
I doubt she could survive the fall she took.

Rarity wouldn't like being used as a landing pad, littlebearcub25.

Um, She's an alicorn.
She could have just flown her way to safety.

She could have transformed into a different pony with wings or just use her magic to create a giant marshmallow to land on safely.Twilight (Nodding) Plz 
TheJesterArt Featured By Owner May 29, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Nope, changeling transformations are illusions, her body doesn't physically change

That moment in a series when the main heroes realize their victories are becoming smaller and smaller, and so they need an upgrade before they reach the defeat level.
ZombieFX Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015

Drakonitka Featured By Owner Edited Jan 23, 2015
Twilight, you wrong. You and youre frends don't killed him. It's energy from crystal heart and will of crystal ponies defiting Sombra. But i don't sure, he is dead.

I makes mistakes in my native langue too. Narf.

They should embrace their ability to kill, but only use it if necessary, like if a hater shows up. (Yes, I hate it when I see haters of MLP.)

Tirek... um... well he's technically still alive but he was sent to Tartarus which is another way of saying Hell... so... trapped in a plane of eternal torment... yeesh, aren't we getting dark here.

And after their first taste of blood they killed every other villain they ever came across.

You do what you have to do. That's all there is to it.

Hehe.... he may be dead.... but the spirit of Sauro-Sombra endures. 
You see, Sombra's life is bound to his corrupted horn, and his horn survived....

Well, that sometimes happens when you fight evil guys...can't reform them all.

If the writers don't wanna say applejacks parents are dead, then king sombra is not dead, or it would be one big contradiction
