Cutie Mark Crusaders Manehattan Branch by wildtiel Cutie Mark Crusaders Manehattan Branch by wildtiel
After we were first made aware of the new Manehattan Branch of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, founded by our newest Crusader Babs, I tried to imagine what her clubhouse in the city would look like. After a lot of pondering, I thought the back alley of an Equestrian City would make the perfect setting, and a broken down cart the perfect clubhouse.

Look how proud she is of her accomplishment! Now it isn't perfect, but it makes the perfect location for Babs and her two new friends to hang out and scheme up ways of earning their cutie marks in the big city. Why I bet those old crates store their little home-packed lunches and other crusading gear!

I think the reason why her clubhouse is in an alley is because that she wanted to make sure her clubhouse is kept secret and safe from the bullies; these bullies may be a bit more harsh than diamond tiara and silver spoon (besides, how else would babs captured the CMC clubhouse?)

Aw! Cute! I choose to think Manehattan isn't THAT bad. Proof? She seems to be enjoying herself. She doesn't even think the garbage bags are weird!

I've been slowly adding to the Babsverse, but I don't self-pimp. This is adorable, though. It really should be featured on Babs-Seed FC.

Oh thank you! I really appreciate it!

No, I can't imagine Manehattan is that bad either. I can't imagine Babs' family is in poverty either. It's just an adorable little club house she made all by herself with items she found.

What is the Babs-Seed FC?

It's one of the Babs Seed fan clubs-- there's a Babs-Seed- FC and a BabSeed FC, and I think a Babs-Seed-CMC. I've kind of lost track of the exact names, but I know people in those groups would appreciate it!

I'm surprised there aren't more fanfics about the CMC spreading across Equestria, with branches in every major city and town. It's scary how well I can imagine Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo becoming something like adorable kingpins of the foal underground.

Using a synonym doesn't change the person's situation or identity. A person who is 100 pounds overweight, regardless of whether you call them fat, obese, pudgy, etc., is still 100 pounds overweight.

It's very nice, considering Babs is coming from Manehattan, and probably doesn't have the best construction skills!

I will admit this is kinda adorably sad, BUT! I gotta look at this the right way. The Original CMC's clubhouse wasn't always the amazing setting it is now when they first got it, and they had Apple Bloom to spruce it up (though for the life of her, she'll never understand why XD). We can only assume Babs' construction skills are limited at best, so she has to work with what she's got.

And for a big city Manehattanite, this is pretty darn good.

And that's what makes this a fantastic piece. What you see depends on what your outlook. I have a friend would think it's sad, but that's because he's quite possibly the most cynical and pessimistic person I've ever known.

I see it as something humble, yet ambitious. She genuinely wants this to work.
