Fantastic collection all around. I'm honestly not sure which one I lile the most. Thank you for them all.


You're very welcome, and I'm chuffed to hear you say that! :scootangel:

You know, I've occasionally imagined a Pony like that - "Jack of Trades", a Pony whose Talent is being fairly good (if not great) at all sorts of jobs rather than great at one thing, and who does all sorts of odd jobs all over Ponyville.


Yes, and it'd be interesting to speculate what kind of cutie mark that would lead to. Perhaps a set of scales, to represent balance? Or a toolbox, maybe, to represent being equipped for every occasion? It might even be one of those cases where a lack of cutie mark would be justified - if slightly horrific in its implications.

Cutie marks can be horrifying in and of themselves if you think about them too much. :pinkiecrazy:
