I'm sorry, I was quoting Stewie Griffin from the cartoon "Family Guy". I guess you're not familiar with the show. I could've responded with "Um, yeah...that's the joke.", and it wouldn't have sounded that demeaning. Either way, my apologies for my insultive comment.
Trixie looks down at her helpless assistant trapped and at her mercy. "Hmmm I know you are so eager to please The Great and Powerful Trixie, but there is no need to fall to pieces over me." Trixie lets out a light chuckle as Twi struggles to get free.
Twi finds her self trapped and unable to move. Her powers blocked by an unseen force and she is helpless to Trixie's whims. Her anger builds as she tries to fight back the only way she can. With her words. "I go a magic trick for you. Let me out and I will show you how to make a broom handle disappear!"
Trixie smiles mischievously at Twi as she climbs down off the box. She walk to the side stage an returns with a broom floating next to her. "You mean one like this." Twi's eyes go wide when she sees it. Not expecting one to be near by. "Hmmm, I think I know how this trick works." Trixie walks around out of Twi's vision, were her legs and tail are sticking out. "I think I will try it and you tell me if I am doing it right."
"NO!" Twi shouts out as she struggles to get out of the box. "Please Trixie, don't."
"Ohh, but I thought you wanted to do some tricks." She taps the broom handle on the box then begins to rub it along Twi's hoof.
Twi begins to panic and the box starts shifting. "No, please no!" Twi's panic becomes to much for the boxes stability as it bounces onto one leg then falls over. "Awwwwww!" Twi cries out as the box falls face first, causing her to smash into the floor.
"TWI!" Trixie drops the broom and runs over to Twi. She uses her magic to lift the box up and reconnect the two halves. With a flash of light the boxes become one as she opens it quickly. She levitates a woozy Twi and stares at her bloody nose. "Oh no. Your bleeding." She magics a towel and begins to dab it over Twi's nose to stop the bleeding.
Twi quickly regains herself from the pain of her nose and swats Trixies hoof away from her face. "Get away from me." She gets up a little shaky but backs away from Trixie fast.
"Twi, I'm sorry." She looks at Twi's face filled with hate for Trixie at the moment. "I did not mean to hurt you. I wasn't going to do anything. It was just a joke."
"HA HA!" Twi, now free of the magic restraint, teleported a first aid kit and proceeds to tend to her nose. "I thought you might have changed your ways, but I guess not." She turns away from her not even wanting to look at her. Twi finishes fixing her nose and stands up ready to leave when she hears slight crying from behind her. Part of her right now does not want to look. She knows if she does she might actually feel sorry for Trixie but she does not want that. She wants to hate her now. She almost lifts up her hoof to walk away but her heart stops her and forces her to turn around to see Trixie turned away.
Trixie is huddled up holding herself as she cries into her arms. Her cape and hat were removed and tossed to the side. "I.. I don't blame you. I can't seem to do anything right anymore." She picks up her cape and uses it to wipe her tears. "I tried to be better. I boasted less and even tried to do charity work, but few people wanted to give me a chance. The ones that did only saw failure in me. My acts were poor and I started to make so many mistakes."
Twi hangs her head a bit looking down at the floor. "Well, why did you even keep going? Do something else with your life." She looks up to see Trixie turned around now. Her eyes swelled up from tears.
"This is all I know." She brakes down again falling to the floor crying into her cape. "I though that maybe... maybe you could fix me. You were so much better then me and it seemed to work." Trixie starts to pound her hoof in the ground crying slightly angry. "But no, I fell back into my old habits. I MESSED UP! Then I hurt you. The only one I thought that might be able to... " She brakes down again and continues pounding the floor till she suddenly feels a hoof grab hers to stop it. She looks up to see Twi sitting next to her. Twi has a smile on her face as she holds Trixies hoof. Trixie's emotions that she was holding back brake forth, lifting her up and falling into Twi. She wraps her arms around her and cries. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry... sorrysorrysorry..."
Twi begins to stroke Trixie's mane gently to help ease her pain. "Shhhhhh!" She then reach under Trixie's chin and lifts her face up to look her in the eyes. "I'm sorry Trixie." Trixie stares at her puzzled at what she was sorry about. "I did not know how much damage I caused you. I could have gone after you and tried to resolved this that day. Rainbowdash was even going to give chase, but I told her to let you go. I thought you probably learned your lesson and would change to be better." A few tears start to form in Twi's eyes as she looks down at Trixie. "I did not know the impact that day had on you." Twi lifts her up to hugs her. They both hug each other for a few minutes. She lets Trixie cry into her and release all the frustration and fear she has build up since that day. After she finally calmed down she let her go.
Trixie wipes her face before looking back at Twi. "I... I must look like a fool to you. Coming to you to fix this broken pony."
Twi slowly lifts herself up and wipes the few tears she shed from her face. She looks down at Trixie who is till sad and uncertain about her life. "I am sorry to say, I am not the one who can fix you." Trixie looks up at her with a look of knowing. Expecting that she could not help her, that no one could help her. Twi smiles at her though as she reaches her hoof down to help her up. "The only one who can is you, but if you need a friend. I am willing to be that for you and watch over you as you find yourself."
Trixie looks up at her. The stage lights give off a glowing aura around her. She smiles and takes Twi's hoof. They both walk off the stage and head to the exit. As they do, Trixie sees a garbage can. She magics her cape and hat into it and turns to Twi. "I don't know who I am anymore." She looks back at the garbage and shakes her head. "Till I do. I won't be needing those." She turns back to Twi as they both walk out the door. They walk down a path together talking, listening and soon, laughing. Were this path takes them both is unknown. Only that it is a path of friendship and a path that Trixie has wanted to walk all her life.
You know after I finished this, re-read to make fixes and then felt done. I thought to myself. Where did this come from? Seriously... I looked back up at your picture a few more times. How did I get this from your pictures. Your picture is playful and naughty. Yet this thing I wrote cause of that picture is not. Oh sure the start may have seemed to lead that way and could have taken that turn, but still it did not.
This is not the first time your art has inspired me to write something. I have a feeling it probably won't be the last.
Sorry for posting this long thing. Your art made me write it and my finger slipped on submit button instead of delete.
Thank for everyone wonderful picture you have created and shared with us all. Thank you so much.
More of a joke really. "Oh I was going to hit delete but my finger slipped and hit send... Wooop!"
No accident really. Though I really was surprised at how the story turned out. Like others I have created for artists (including a past Twi/Trixie for Joey), for the most part I don't know how the story will go. Like I say. The art made me right this. Joey's art always seems to spark my imagination and sends my fingers into overdrive. I think that is an accident on his part but a happy one for me. Makes me happy to always look at great art that makes me see stories.
Why, not really sure. I don't right fan fic for publishing or even posting on my own page. The stuff I post is really just cause of the art and made for it and only it. So best I guess I am just leaving it were it feels like it belongs.
I have done quite a few of these. The only one I hope enjoys it is the artist. As it was their art that spawned it. Everyone else that enjoys it, is just a nice bonus. Those that don't. Well, can't be helped.
Fortunately the artist has the power to remove it if they feel it is an annoyance.
