Look what I can do! by Vindhov Look what I can do! by Vindhov
You are my son by Vindhov: PREV    NEXT : 

Angel sprinted through the cottage in search for Curtain Call, his paws slipping against the polished wooden floors as he did so. 

"Excuse me, coming through!" He shouted at the various woodland critters strewn about every room of the house, frightened and suprised squeaks following in his wake. 

His mother had told him and his brothers not to run inside the house, yet he couldn't help it, he was just so extremely excited to show his brother what he had just discovered. 

"C.C?!" He yelled out, trying to locate his brother's whereabouts "C.C I need to show you something!" No reply. 
Angel huffed in frustration as he was now standing in the kitchen doorway. Where could his brother be? He should be able to hear him no matter where he was in the house as the layout was fairly open and Angel was fairly loud. 

"Not so loud bunny" Fluttershy said in a low tone as she walked up behind him holding a small frightened squirrel. Likely scared from Angel's rampage through the living room. "What's the hurry?" 

"Oh, eh, I'm sorry mom. I just want to... show him this really cool and... secret trick I learned" He didn't quite want to give it away to his mother as he wanted Curtain Call to be the first pony to see it.

"Oh that sounds exciting sweetie" Fluttershy smiled softly "May I see it too?" 

Angel frowned "Mom I can't, it's too secret still" 

"Okay sweetie" Her smile still present "Just promise to be careful, and no more running inside, you're giving the animals quite a fright. Your brothers should be outside by daddy's gazebo" 

"Thanks mom, and I will I promise!" He said as he trotted towards the back door, making sure not to resume his sprint until he got outside and away from his mother's eyes. 

Quickly he darted up the hill where the family had built a gazebo years before Angel was even born. It served as Ponnet's painting station housing all of his painting equipment, or atleast most of it. Fluttershy and Ponnet's bedroom was also cluttered with old oil paints and brushes. But the gazebo was where Ponnet spent most of his time out painting no matter the weather. 

As he reached the gazebo he quickly saw Bumblebee and his father both drawing, but no Curtain Call. 

"Bumble, make sure to really invision the roots and gnarly texture of that tree. Feel how the passing of time has come to shape it's existance. After you feel it in your heart it will manifest itself in your drawing" Ponnet exclaimed flailing his hooves slightly in the air. Bumble mainly seemed confused and tried focusing as he moved the pen across the paper. 

"Like this?" He asked hesitently as he held up his drawing. The tree was a simple straight trunk with a single big ball in the top, suppsedly the leaves. 

"Brilliant!" Ponnet exclaimed as he hugged his son "Such a wonderful abstract expression for mother natures creation. There is surely a future artist in you too" 

"Heh it's just a tree dad" Bumble laughed not wanting to show how much he enjoyed the praise. 

Angel ran up to the two of them and Ponnet focused his attention on him. 

"Well hello my little angel, do you want to join us?" 

Angel shock is head "I'm looking for C.C" He said quickly "have you seen him?" 

Suddenly C.C walked up from behind the gazebo. He had been out of view from where Angel was standing but now here he was. Without wasting a second Angel bunced up to him and led him into a more secluded corner of the garden. 

"Hey, Angel where are we going?" Curtain Call protested slightly yet let his brother drag him away. 

"I have something amazing to show you!" Angel squealed gleefully "It's just that it's a secret so we have to go to our secret lair" 
The secret lair in question was just a hollow part of the shrubbery at the outskirt of their property. It wasn't anything spectacular but it was pretty much impossible to see inside it while watching the bushes from the outside which provided some much needed protection from prying eyes. 

"So, what is it you wanted to show me?" Curtain Call asked getting more and more curious as his brother stalled. 

"Okay... so I just discovered the most awesome thing ever!" Angel almost shock of excitment. "But before I show you, you have to promise not to tell anypony!" He said trying to sound stern but failing miserably. 

"I swear on my honor" Curtain Call answered placing a hoof across his chest "Now show me, please" 

Angel bounced in place for a few seconds barely not able to contain himself anymore. With a few deep breaths he managed to calm himself down a bit "Okay, I have only done it once by accident, but I think I know how to do it on purpose" 
The small draconequus took another deep breath and tried concentrating. Yet nothing happened. 
Curtain Call waited patiently for something to happen. 

Angel kept on trying to concentrate harder and harder, his face allmost turning blue from how much he strained himself for some sort of reaction. 
Then just as C.C was about to tell him to stop and just explain what he was trying to do Angel's eyes started glowing with a faint green light. The draconequus cub smiled and then locked eyes with his brother. 

"Now look!" He said excitedly as a slimmer of glowing green magic crept across Angel's body and morphing it wherever it passed. In a few seconds it was no longer Angel standing there, but an exact copy of Curtain Call. 

Curtain Call's stood there, wide eyed and jaw hanging open. He was speechless. 

"Isn't this awesome?!" Angel blurted "I can shapeshift!" The smile on his face was almost impossibly large as he inspected himself. "I can be anypony I want! I don't have to get bullied in school anymore, we could hang out and play with the other kids without them thinking im wierd! Isn't this perfect?" Angel gave it some thought "Or, I could be a superhero! Mighty morphing man!" 

"This... is the coolest thing I have ever seen!" Curtain Call finally answered the initial shock starting to wear of.

"Just promise you won't tell mom or dad about this. They probably wouldn't want me going to school dressed up as someone else" 


So here we go. Some pointless banter between ponies and some backstory to what the first changeling powers Angel displayed was. The shapeshifting is all changeling stuff and not something he got from Discord. 
After this everything started going downhill with his health as he started displaying more and more changeling powers and urges. 

But it was a really cool discovery for him when he was little.

I have some more secret headcanon regarding Changelings and how they work that I will reveal in future pictures.

Thank you :)

I wasn't able to watch most of your stream, but I saw something about haywire/cerulean. What do you have planned for them?

Cause celestia making him show her around canterlot would be fun to see and give them a chance to get to know each other.

That's a pretty cute story even if this supposed darker future. So did Angel choose himself a personal disguise or did he changed himself only into ponies he know ?
Vindhov Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
At first he could only change into ponies he knew and had seen but later after some practice he managed to make his own form. 
Lady-Limule Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Student Traditional Artist
If one day you have the time, it could be nice to see him ^^
DawnsyBebo Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
He was such a cutie! Love Waaaah! 
Nautilus18 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017
Does flutters by or anyone else besides c.c know about this?

It would be pretty suspicious considering how similar the transformation is to a changelings.

Also, what age are they right now?
tdarksideofthefandom Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Very nice pic, loved both of their faces. It's strange and sad to see this picture/narration, because we see once again that Angel had a really lovely family who loved and supported him. I expressed previously my incertity about how he could ended so miserable with so much honest love , but the idea that the changelings byology started to hit him and making him mad it's fascinating and specially tragic. 

Also, I knew that Angel had been kinda raised by fluttershy, but I didn't made the obvious connection that that mean he was pretty much "brother" with Curtain Call, Bumbleebe, and (maybe) he would even hang around when Flutters was taking care of chakra? (that could be an fun unexpected relation to explore). This made that AU pic in which Curtain became the last pony alive after Angel genocide even much more tragic and interesting. 
Vindhov Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you!
Yeah I have this idea about changelings that their brain/personality just starts to decay and shift the more they use their powers. Hence why Angel could turn so quickly. 
In the end all changelings are just so far gone that they mostly act on instinct and has lost all their empathy. 

Isn't Chakra part of Lop's universe? ^^'' 

There will be some pretty intense tension between Angel and his old family once they meet again.

Lol sorry! I' mix you two all the time by just so cool your characters are XD
Gischtkralle Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Naaaw, smoll angel is so cute, I'd like to cuddel him and.. just aaww
Also Curtain Call looks way to cute here, you're giving me diabetes xD
TheBigEarredBat Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Too Cute~
I love the relation between C.C. and Angel 
I also love how the whole family just treats him like family
I've seen too many cases where you can easily tell which child is adopted by how the parents or siblings treat them
So I'm happy to see when even in writing the ENTIRE family is sweet and loving to everyone
Vindhov Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you ^^
Yeah me too. For Flutters there is no difference in how she treats her kids. Even though Angel isn't her biological son she still loves him just as much as C.C and Bumble. 
In my opinion there shouldn't really be any difference between adopted and the not adopted kids.

So... i'm new in this universe, how discord and chrysalis had a child? She raped him or what?
brigth-doddles99 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Vindhov Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Kinda yeah, Chrysalis wanted Draqonequus super soldiers basically.
But Discord got away and ended up dropping off Angel's egg outside Fluttershy's house since he was to distraught to come up with anything else. 
Raxen35 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017
But how she did this? i mean, he's very much powerfull then her.
tdarksideofthefandom Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Well, in the season 6 finale (spoilers, just in case) it's show that the chrysasllys throne had a kind of magic that overpowered and nullified discord chaos magic. It's reasonable to think then that, even besides the elements of harmony, there are ways of defeating him. 
Raxen35 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017
Makes sense
