Reversed Roles by DragonwolfRooke Reversed Roles by DragonwolfRooke
Normally dragons are very harsh, territorial creatures. It is not often that they are welcoming to outsiders. But when I found that abandoned foal...well...something inside me changed. Against the other dragons wishes, I raised the little pony as my own. She's only a baby pony, but she has great magic inside of her, I feel. Perhaps I can teach her the magic of the dragons. For now, I am content to watch over her - my little Twilight.

This was an idea I had, about what it would be if Twilight and Spike's roles were reversed - what if Twilight was the one abandoned, with no knowledge of her past, and taken in by a young Spike? Now not so young. Maybe something happened in Canterlot that led to Twilight being abandoned in the could be great fanfiction material, eh? XD

All in all I really like how this turned out. I need to paint dragons more often. I draw them all the time in my sketchbook, but for some reason I don't paint them as often.

This needs to be a fanfic.

I was going to write a fanfic about a Pegasus found as a foal by a Dragon and raised as a Dragon not knowing what it was to be a pony. I didn't because it sounded too crazy and Tarzan-like. Then I'm seeing this picture and wondering if I shouldn't write it anyways...

Headcanon accepted. I like the idea. It would be cute.
Spike spike!! Do you have any books?

But what would have happened to the other Mane5?
Did Rainbowdash never rainboom? She wouldn't have connected them...
Or maybe Twilight's test was something completely different and she failed.

Or in the shadow of Nightmare moon's return Celestia is scattering all unicorns, failures or not,
and mind altering them so that they won't remember anything and try to return to Equestria proper, until the danger is averted?
In order to prevent the annialation of their race in the event of no student appearing to awaken the Elements?

I shouldn't be trying to think this out I have a paper due!!
