You're not special by Vindhov You're not special by Vindhov
Found something by Vindhov: PREV NEXT :

Inkwell made his way through the castle corridors. Love Letter and Marigold was out to school and their mother was out on another one of those map quests, so the whole castle had a pleasant quiet lingering in it. 
For Inkwell it seemed to be shaping up to be a good day. 

He carried his researh papers with him on his way to do some thinking in the library. Without his mother or sisters pestering him it was a really nice place to sit and think. Something that he needed to do in order to get this ritual in order. He hadn't even begun to gather all of the items he would need and some of them he honestly didn't know where or how to get yet. He was certain that some of his mother's books on potion making had plenty of information on most of the items though so it was his first priority to find a book on rare magical ingredients and their properties. Perhaps if he couldn't get his hooves on the exact things he could substitute them with ingredients of similar effect. 

Deep in thought he suddenly heard a voice behind him as well as hoofsteps catching up with him. 

"Good morning Inkwell." 

That cheery tone put him in a solemn mood. 
He was certain she would be out as well with no one else in the castle but apparently Starlight Glimmer was still in. 

"I didn't see you down in the kitchen, have you had any breakfast?" She asked motherly. 

He quickly frowned then turned to face her. 

"You're still home?" He grumbled displeased. 

She didn't answer his question, instead she just sighed deeply. 

"Look, Inkwell, I was thinking we could talk" Her voice had changed to a more serious tone. "I know you took one of the books we got from Canterlot this week"

"Well yes, am I not allowed to take things from my own home?" He still frowned at her. 

"It's just that those books contain some highly classified things. They can be dangerous... so I think it only fair you tell us why you took it"

Inkwell huffed.

"No need to fear, it is only for curiosities sake. You will get it back shortly" he answered cutrly as he turned to continue walking towards the library. "Now if that is all I have some reading to catch up on"

"That isn't all actually" 

He stopped, however kept his back turned towards her, waiting for her to continue.

"We are worried about you Inkwell. Me and Twilight. I know first hoof what it is like to act out and make mistakes, I see a lot of myself in you and I fear that you might be going down the wrong path. I don't want you to do anything you will regret." Genuine concern echoed in her voice as she spoke. 

Anger started to bubble up in him, how dared she compare the two of them. They were nothing alike. 

"Inkwell, please tell us what is going on. If you won't talk to me or Twilight then please let us help you find someone else to talk to. Whatever is troubling you, you shouldn't have to deal with alone" 

Another moment of silence passed, both of them frozen in place. 

"Starlight Glimmer" he stated, Starlight looking at him in sudden confusion. "what is my title?"

"What?" 

"I am a prince. Firstborn child of princess Twilight Sparkle. I will not have you adress me in this manner" His voice was almost a hiss as if he was holding back his anger. "You shall adress me as your superior, for that is what I am. I will hear no more of you talking for my mother nor fabricate lies about me"

She took a step forward. 

"Inkwell please, I am only saying this because we worry about you"

He held back a growl as his face scrunched up in anger. But with a deep breath he managed to collect himself. In a stone cold tone he replied. 

"This castle is really beautiful isn't it?" 

"Inkwell?"

"You're not special Starlight Glimmer. My mother has had many ponies, and other creatures, before you. Do not think you hold a special place in her heart, for when she tires she will replace you too. I hear how you argue at night, it's nothing new.
I give it another two months before she changes her mind, so you better enjoy the castle while you can" 

Shocked and stunned Starlight just stared as the prince calmly left and walked to the library. 


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


Inkwell is an angry jerk. 

Starlight is seeing some worriyng signs in Inkwells behaviour that Twilight has a hard time accepting which leads to some late night arguments between the two. 
Twilight is too scared to really bring it up to her son and just sort of tip toes around him to keep him happy. (she doesn't want her baby to be mad at her) She feels a lot of guilt from how their relationship has become and doesn't want to give him more reasons to dislike her. 
Therefore they never talk about things like this, so Starlight took it upon herself. To bad Inkwell has no respect for her so he won't really listen to anything she has to say. 

Why do I like making disfunctional relationships? I guess jerks are fun when they're fictional.

Inkwell needs a Bright Slap right away for his actions: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy6hg…

He's displaying Hypocrisy 101 right there as he himself is not that much different from Starlight or his mom. He's just an arrogant, selfish, egotistical, cold, jerk ass with mommy and family issues as if he continues down this path, death and horror will follow him and his mom will have no choice, but to end him for good for the survival of Equestria.

He also needs a stern talk from General George Patton and Admiral Pike from Star Trek Into Darkness for his attitude as it'll get him into serious trouble that he can't get out of.

I love Starlight but I gotta say Inkwell does have a good point. As much of a royal A$$ hat as he is you can't really deny what he's saying.

Exactly. The things he says isn't completely fabricated and he does have a point altough the way he says it is still kinda overly rude

Poor Starlight ! I really don't like her, but I'm still sorry for this unfortunate mare.
And for Inkwell too in an other way.

It's kinda strange how easily everyone forgave her in the show (for stuff that is fucking illegal and would get people thrown in jail irl, or worse) but then again I do kinda like her in a way. 
Inkwell is a dick. He and Riposte should get along swimingly but alas two dicks only wants to kill eachother if put in a room together.

Actually, it wasn't strange at all. They actually point out that Starlight can't just be left on her own, so they made it a point to pretty much watch over her and Twilight kinda had her on a short leash. As well, Starlight was pretty much broken at the end of the finale since she thought she was the good guy. So Twilight was in a good position to help her.

Besides, Discord was way worse since he did things far more malicious then Starlight just for laughs. 

Either way, I think forgiving Starlight was the right thing to do.

Yup it was really really weird. She create a sect and steal ponies identities and years of life. That's so wrong in so many levels. I just decided Starlight go in prison and Sunset Shimmer come back.
It could be fun to see an illustration of Inkwell and Riposte meeting XD

As much of a jerk Inkwell is being, I can't help but feel he's got a point. HOW many relationships has Twilight had at this point? It's kinda getting so I don't think she knows what she wants in a committed relationship. Or at least she doesn't want commitment at all.

It's what I was going for. Like even if he does act like kind of a dick he still has an actual point. Twilight probably doesn't know what she wants and has a hard time with comitment and he's just kind of sick and tired of it at this point.
