An idea that occured to me... · 6:58pm
I was recently rereading chapter 4 of my story Dragon Re-Quest in preparation for writing chapter 5, when I came across this line about the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
Spike shrugged. "It's how most adults react when they first hear about those three. Together, they seem to have a natural talent for chaos, mischief, and property damage."
This suddenly gave me this mental image regarding the CMC's cutie marks:
Apple Bloom: I got my Cutie Mark! But...why is it an apple exploding and releasing a freaky looking butterfly?
Talent for chaos, and referencing the Butterfly Effect.
Scootaloo: I got my Cutie Mark! Looks like an exploding paint bomb...
Talent for mischief.
Sweetie Belle: I got my Cutie Mark! It's...a wrecking ball?
Talent for property damage.
And of course, how their older sister figures react to this...
Applejack: Well, can't say I'm not surprised...
Rainbow Dash: Sweet! Now let me teach you all I know about pranking!
