Lonely Scootaloo by ShrapnelLeader Lonely Scootaloo by ShrapnelLeader
Summer is finally here, so now I'm back again. Time to post ponies.


Looks like sad ponies seem to have crossed my mind recently. As of two full seasons, I haven't seen a character in the entire MLP franchise as unloved as Scootaloo.

The poor filly has had no revealed family, pet, or home, not to mention the fact that there hasn't been a single episode dedicated to her (unlike her Cutie Mark Crusader partners, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle).

She can't fly and she still doesn't have a cutie mark, two things she is embarrassed over. It makes me feel bad.




So I thought I'd demonstrate one of the darkest feelings of Scootaloo: being alone. The words I chose were those of Mother Teresa.

(This artwork was hand-drawn then colored in Photoshop CS4)

You're not unloved, Scootaloo.  I love you.  My door will always be open for you, and I will always be willing to lend an ear to your problems, shoulder to cry on, a hug to make the hurt go away, and all the love in my heart.

You can, but again... be sure to credit me and include a link to my original picture.

You have a lot of art that belongs to others that you recolored and while I can see you've asked permission, you MUST credit the original artist/art! A lot of your recolors do not have this. If you don't do this, you can have your Deviantart account suspended for art theft. For your sake and for the sake of the original artists, don't forget to give credit where credit is due.

Hello, I really like this and am thinking about writing a sad song about a lonely filly.
 Is it OK if I use this as the image for my video? If I do use it I will of course credit you and even provide a link to this picture. I can't promise you "mad" views since it will probably be my first video(just started the Youtube account) but I will appreciate it and I hope I can do this image justice.

She was never entirely lonely as she has friends, but the loneliness I'm talking about is what we don't know.

Even now she STILL has no parents, siblings, other relatives, a home, a pet, the ability to fly, or a cutie mark. I wonder why so little is known about her.

Kay. Am I the only one getting sick of these. They pop up all the dang time, and make me feel sad, EVERY SINGLE TIME! Stop the sadness. This is supposed to be a happy show :C

:iconshrapnelleader:
ShrapnelLeader Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012
From my knowledge, yes.

And good! I'm glad it made you sad. That was the whole intent of this picture! You're supposed to feel pity for Scootaloo. You seem to forget that there has been more than just lala-sunshine happiness in MLP. Every character has had some form of depression or mental breakdown at least once in the series. Heck, even the first episode was a sad story about Luna's conflict. Yes, it's a happy show and I've made happy artwork, but nothing in Equestria is perfect. Every pony has flaws and conflicts, and this is just a look into what Scootaloo may go through behind the scenes.
