"A good thing came out of this burned skin. I don't care about my looks anymore and now I attend the refugees at full time."
Rarity's design for the "what if" story where Twilight Sparkle travels into an alternative and dark future.
A little warning. This concept involves my favorite pairings: Rainbow x Fluttershy, Pinkie x Twilight and Applejack x Rarity. Thou have been warned! XD
Here's the usual summary regarding the character's background:
After hearing that Twilight mysteriously vanished Rarity went along with Applejack and their friends on a long search through Equestria in the hopes of finding her.
Rarity didn't mind the long walk, especially if its objective was to find a lost friend, but as this dragged for months the purple haired girl began to reach her limit. Applejack was the first to notice her fatigue and suggested to pause the search but Pinkie Pie immediately refused to give up. Rarity intended to continue, no matter how exhausted she was, but then Applejack decided to carry her back home.
As the two girls arrived to Ponyville Rarity thought Applejack would go back to the search but she was surprised when the farm girl said no. According to her it was pointless to keep looking. She believed that Twilight would return by her own efforts, knowing the girl she most likely would, and that reassured Rarity.
Not long after their friends' return Ponyville was attacked by the Changelings, and Rarity despite not liking to fight refused to let Applejack and Spike fight on their own. Along with their friends and the townsfolk they managed to make the Changelings retreat. But their victory was short as the attacks became frequent after the fall of Canterlot.
Rarity began to fear for the safety of her family and started making plans of possibly moving from Ponyville to a safer place. If there was any at all. But those plans were temporarily put aside when Rainbow Dash informed her and the others about a strategy she elaborated to ambush Chrysalis. Who knew, it could probably work and she wouldn't have to leave town.
As the decisive day arrived Rarity started to feel anxious. Applejack and Spike assured her that everything would be fine, but unfortunately it didn't went that way because as they set foot in the castle they were ambushed by the Changeling Queen's army.
A bloody fight took place in the castle and the Changelings were clearly in advantage as they wiped out Rarity's comrades one by one. During the fight a Changeling caught her and had set a part of her clothes on fire, which ended up burning part of her skin.
And as if it wasn't bad enough for her Applejack rushed to save her from being crushed by the crumbling walls and ended up losing one of her legs.
Rarity feared it was the end for them, there was no escape, but then Spike stepped up and ordered her and Pinkie to guide everyone out before turning into a full grown dragon and fighting the Changelings by himself.
When the main five returned to Ponyville Rarity watched silent as Applejack and Rainbow Dash argued and broke the bonds with each other. After that she came to the conclusion that she couldn't bear to live in that town anymore. She didn't want to lose anyone else. Before leaving she asked Applejack to go with her and bring her family along, but the farm girl refused, she just couldn't abandon the town where she grew up nor its people.
Rarity and her family followed other townsfolk who seek a safer place to live and they ended up in a small refugee camp built within the woods close to the Hayseed Swamps.
Now Rarity attends the refugees at full time, providing them clothes and fixing them, giving them food and helping the sick and wounded.
Coming next and the final piece of the set, Princess Twilight Sparkle.Important note!:
Ok I can't take it anymore, people keep asking "what about Spike? Why won't you draw him?", it was going to be a surprise drawing after I'm done with Twilight's drawing but well, now it isn't anymore...
