Foalhood Comfort by wildtiel Foalhood Comfort by wildtiel
Have you ever had one of those nights where you are laying in bed thinking sad thoughts for hours on end? C'mon, everybody has, including Twilight Sparkle! Get off that flank and get the thing that comforts you most! In Twilight's case, retrieve Miss smarty Pants from Big Mac at once!

This comic took me absolutely forever to do, but I could not be happier with how it came out. No need for dialogue in this comic. The raw emotion tells the whole tale.

Special thanks to ~SilencedMi6 for supporting me throughout the creation process.

Thank you Equestria Daily for uploading this!!! I believe I have indeed mastered the 'Dawww style XD

**3-16-2013** - [link] This beautiful picture was inspired by this comic and was created by :iconlonesome-wolf-child: lonesome-wolf-child. Thank you so much for sharing this with me!

And now I think about it, maybe need one of those for sleep....
Twi, you're never too old for Smarty Pants.

To be honest, I first slept with a Wembley Fraggle toy. Now I sleep with a Twilight Sparkle plush and sometimes a unicorn toy named "Mystic."

I can't help it! I love love love love unicorns. Love Love Love Love :)

I will admit, yeah, I've had nights where I'd lie in bed thinking sad thoughts. But nowadays when it's happened, I've gotten this Winnie the Pooh plush I've had since I was 1 year old, and I feel better. Just wondering though, why does Big Mac have Smarty Pants? :? (Confused) 
BadlyDrawnTurtle Featured By Owner Edited Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Because in Lesson Zero, the last time we see Smarty Pants Big Mac is carrying it away. Later on, in Ponyville Confidential, Big Mac is shown to still have it. As far as we know, Smarty Pants is still there.
Seiya-Meteorite Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
I wonder what he does with it; just keep it on a shelf and look at it?
BadlyDrawnTurtle Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Ponyville Confidential has it that he cuddles it, and the collectible cards (not the trading cards; they're different) say Smarty Pants helps him with balancing the checkbooks. (It's no weirder than Twilight's “helping me study”.)
Seiya-Meteorite Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Oh, I see, yeah that does sound odd.

I have a ton of plush including ones I'm collecting (I just got all of the Mane 6 and a vintage Starshine G1 plush, yet I just sit them with me.
BadlyDrawnTurtle Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I snuggle my plush. That's what they're for.
Seiya-Meteorite Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Yeah, I will admit, I do sleep with one Twilight plushie (a unicorn, I also have an alicorn one) along with a Winnie the Pooh plush I've had since I was 1.

I need my Sonic stuffie and my alicorn stuffie (Pink horn and pink wings, white everything else. I named her Princess Celestia.) to sleep, otherwise I get nightmares. Now, where's my sanwich? *checks backpack again* I swear, I'm gonna run out of mayo, bread and sandwich meat! Oh wel.. I guess I'll have to eat mine right away this time. *pulls out bread and mayo* Hey, where's all the chicken? Aw, hooves! *stamps hoof on ground*

Me in a nutshell. I used to sleep with this lion plush(Who I called "Lion". So original...) and then at some point I stopped, then I remembered him, so I snuck out of bed and took him from the shelf and now I can't sleep without him... <XD
WishDancer345 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2014
That's so weird, I also have a lion plush called "Lion".

its hard to give up your childhood toy to someone else, but when you asked them to take it back, don't be afraid they know how it feels.
I guess twilight loved Miss Smarty Pants so much, as long with her friends :)
