It's the journey that counts, not the destination.


It's Winter in the Dragonlands, which means lots of rain and time spent inside. Feeling somewhat lonely, Garble can't even work up the inspiration for his poetry. Luckily, Smolder is there to drop by and entertain him with her own storytelling.

Set between Season 6 and Season 8, circa a few months after 'Gauntlet of Fire'.

Loved this, mate :twilightsmile:. A warm, fuzzy story of two rather unorthodox siblings. We don't really see much of these two, don't we :derpytongue2:


Thanks, Sledge. :pinkiesmile: Indeed, this short story sprouted from wondering how in the "every man for himself" culture of dragons, do two siblings who are evidently close yet put such effort into keeping up appearances, reconcile these conflicting interests.

Awww this was a nice take between the dragon sibs, well done! :twilightsmile:


Thanks! :twilightsmile: I couldn't say why, but I have always had a soft spot for Garble. While I don't think the show itself handled his final appearance and redemption all that well, it's nice they made Smolder his sister.

This is one of the best Smolder-Garble fics I've seen. Love how it worked in the story of Scales and had a very believable scene between the two, given how dragons are depicted in MLP. Fantastic stuff!


I appreciate the comment. :pinkiesmile: Funnily enough, this story originated from an image I had of Smolder playfully grinding the older and larger Garble's snout into the dirt. Working it in as a re-enactment of the Scales story came off as a logical next step.
