You are my son by Vindhov You are my son by Vindhov
What even are you? by Vindhov: PREV    NEXT : Look what I can do! by Vindhov


Tears kept streaming down the small draconequus face as he swung the door open and stepped inside the cottage. He had sprinted all the way home from the school, not caring about the rest of his classes. 
Once inside he sat down, leaning against the door. His vision was hazy from the tears yet as he lifted his paw to wipe them he paused. Through blurry eyes he just kept looking down at his paws. His big clawed paws... slowly his gaze wandered to the strange extra limbs jutting out behind his shoulders. He didn't even know what those were, only that no pony he had ever seen had that many limbs. Then again he wasn't a pony. Those bullies may have been cruel but they didn't lie. He wasn't a pony. 

"Angel?" A soft yet confused voice was heard infront of him. 

He snivelled and looked up hastily. He had been so deep in thought that he hadn't heard Fluttershy walk in from some other part of the house. 

"Angel bunny, what's wrong?" She said in a deeply concerned voice as she quickly walked up closer to him. "What's happened?" 

He didn't answer, the big lump in his throat wouldn't let him as he tried to somehow hide how sad he actually was. It didn't work too well since he soon found himself hugging her leg crying even more this time. 
Fluttershy patiently waited for her son to feel ready to talk as she sat down and put booth hooves around him. 

"It was... it was..." he sobbed as he tried to get the words out.

"Deep breaths" she mused softly as she stroke his mane trying to soothe him as best she could. 

"Seabreeze and Tropical... they wouldn't let me play with them, and then... then..." He felt new tears welling up. "They told me that you aren't really my mom and that you only let me live here because you feel sorry for me... because I'm just some animal... that happens to talk..." He snivelled once more burrying his face in her leg. 

Stunned that someone would be so cruel to her child she just sat for a moment, holding her boy closer.

"The worst part is that they're right!" He yelled meekly "I don't even know what I am... I'm not a pony so I might as well just be some mutated squirrel..."

"You are not a mutated squirrel" Fluttershy said in a determined tone. "What those foals said is 100 % wrong. Appearance isn't what makes a pony, it's what's in their heart, and you are the most giving and kind soul there is. So by that I say you are even more pony than most ponies out there. Besides, I know what you are beyond that, something that is even more important" 

He looked up at her and blinked away some of his tears.

"What's that?" he asked

"You are my son" she pressed her forehead against his in a loving gesture. "And I will love you endlessly no matter what. Never out of pity. Angel, don't ever forget how special you are to all of us"


-------------------------------------


woooooow so much cheese in those last sentences. Oh well, can't be helped. 
Angel loves his adoptive mom very much (he knows he's adopted) and she loves him just as much back, if not even more. Too bad he forgets that...

I had some trouble while deciding weither or not to have a background for this one. I think they both looked nice but decided to try and make some more drawings without them so I can focus more on just the characters. 
What do you guys normally prefer? Background or no background?

For those wondering Angel is the biological son of Discord and Chrysalis however he was adopted by Fluttershy and Ponet before he even hatched. 
Fluttershy and the rest of the main six has only guessed that Discord might be his actuall dad but havent been able to confirm it for sure, they don't know of his "mom" being chrysalis.

Well i always kinda shipped the sporax foal i got from you and angel (least its a dream xD), changed the parents to Ember and thorax to sort fit into your next gen universe.(i didnt see thorax or ember being used and spikes with luna. If anything the parents would be a one time thing) But yeah when i adopted the foal from you i got a really monstery feel from them and thats where i was just "oh hey monster buds"

I feel like he could relate to spike as well. Since Spike had his own identity crisis of being a dragon. When at the end, he was a pony at heart, just like peewee the baby pheonix too.... or that's just my guesses lol

I have to say I do love Angel.

He is such a unique little creature and honestly is perfect for Fluttershy. Fluttershy loves taking care of unique creatures and adopting one was I think a fluttershy decision. It was something I can see her doing.

I just hate how his story goes 3:
Unless you chaned it.

The story where he kills everyone off and traps Discord in a necklace is an AU, in the canon story he didn't kill Chrysallis, resulting in him NOT taking over the hive.

Yes I know, but that leads to him finding Chrysallis's hive and trying to fight her for ruler ship, which leads to this  Fight for Dominance by Vindhov  of course like I said, he doesn't kill her off, so the AU doesn't happen.
