Luna's Socks - Deluxe Edition


Starring Twilight Sparkle and Princesses Celestia and Luna
Written in collaboration between Butterscotch Sundae and Foxxy Hooves

It had been many many pony generations since the clacking and clattering of young hooves had regularly enlivened the halls of Canterlot Castle, and Princess Celestia knew it. Even in the best of times there was more arthritic creakings of limbs from stiff and stiffening old diplomats and dignitaries than ponies at play, and sometimes she wondered if the life were going out of the old place.

But now the hammer and nails had come out and the constant buzz and flutter of pegasuses around the old south tower had stirred in the Princess memories of livelier days of fun and play in the wide marble halls, and that is how an invitation made its way from her study to the Ponyville Publick Library. The Princess had spent many weeks anticipating her student's arrival and the evening finally came late on a clear orange dusk just as her sun had slipped behind the Mustang Mountains to the west.

STORY CONTINUED HERE: [link]

This is my very first collaboration with :iconbuttersc0tchsundae:!

In a way, this was fated, as her beautiful story "Luna's Socks": ([link]) was inspired by two of my own drawings of Luna, "Night Owl" ([link]) and "Luna's Socks" ([link]). In a weird chain of influence this inspired me to not only touch up and expand the story, but add a few distinct touches of my own.

We've decided to call this collaborative effort the "Deluxe Edition" - or the "FoxxySundae" version, if you insist - and is intended to stand alongside her original text, because not all art needs to have definitive editions.

If you've read Butters' original version, we hope you'll find this to be a worthwhile incarnation of the same concept. It does not stray too far from the original, and I'd be flattering myself to say I added anything but a muted watercolor wash to her original graceful lines.

Okay, here's the ballyhoo version then.

Very VERY well done :D

My expectations for what would happen next just couldn't remain idle as I continued through. I'm actually surprised slightly at what it ended up being and I'm pleasantly surprised at how pleased I am with this piece as a whole.

Great work to you two :D!

This short story could be expanded into a freaking novel worthy of press. You deserve all praise. Now, we just need more chapters that show how this relationship between Luna and Twilight will go with Celestia being very close to finding out...

I am so frustrated, I could just scream!!! aaaah

I so despise Google Docs right now. I preloaded this link on my Nintendo 3DS and closed the top, cause I saw it was a DA link, and the 3DS will do DA, FIMFic, and FF links. It doesn't do Google Docs.
Needless to say, when my break came around and I open my 3DS and scroll down to see "The Story Continues: https docs google com ..."

Y U trik me!

Oh I'm so frustrated I could just kick something!!! tink, wobble-wobble

Also I am wearing wool socks right now. This may or may not be because of the fic I just read.

Just to be sure...

The story here, its content, is the same as the combination of Luna's Socks Part 1 and Part 2, with no story-changes... BUT with extra pictures in it. Right ?

With the grace of my two most favorite pony people, I already got to see this and enjoy every little bit of it, but it makes me smile ear to ear to see it uploaded.

I swear you two are so brilliant it's intimidating. ♥
Every little bit of my love!
