Good evening, everypony, and once again a very Merry Christmas to you all! I hope everypony has had a splendid holiday today and a wonderful time celebrating with anyone they can, be it family or friends! I've been meaning to do this for some time now, but I figured now's as good of a time as any considering the holiday season is all about spending time with those we love, and in turn getting to share that love with as many people as we can. While my beloved girlfriend and I have not gotten to celebrate the holiday yet, we will thankfully get to celebrate New Year's Eve together next weekend, and exchange some Christmas present with each other then. With her birthday being last month at the end of November, and our one year anniversary coming up this Valentine's Day, I wanted to get her a special little something as a way of continuously welcoming her in the brony fandom and pony family. While we're still in the middle of Season 1 of MLP, it's been a special part of our relationship from the get go; my darling was totally cool with the entire concept of the show when I shared with her that I liked it, and thinks that some of the fan art produced in it is incredible, plus she knows how important my pony people are to me at this point. She was even nice enough to go to the MLP Movie with me, which was simply a blast of a time together and something that was very special for the both of us to share in! So, for her birthday I commissioned my great friend Sapphfyr to design an OC for her just like he did for me a couple years ago in this cute little guy, Silver Lining.
Working with her and getting input from her about her personality, they came up with an OC that is simply perfect for her! So without further ado, everypony, let me introduce you all to my girlfriend's very own pony OC, Topaz Blossom!
Isn't she just the CUTEST!!!
Topaz Blossom, as you can see, is a unicorn. We haven't exactly come up with just what for sure her profession is, but it's most likely something tailoring-related since my girlfriend works in dress and bridal gown store and most closely relates to Rarity (so yes @Jeric you can add her to your ranks of Rarity lovers ). The cutie mark is a very personal symbol for her; it's a symbol of the Christian Holy Trinity, but done up in the style of a Claddagh symbol/ring. My girlfriend has quite a bit of Irish heritage, and the symbol for her stands for both her faith and heritage, representing love, loyalty, and friendship. It felt most appropriate for her to utilize this as her cutie mark, and I couldn't agree more! Now that we've both got OCs too, Lord willing I'll be able to get some fan art of the two of our OCs together, which is something I've long hoped to do with any significant other. Any artists who wish to use these characters yourself, please contact me first, but I shouldn't have any issues for the most part (especially if someone just wants to make some cute are of the two of them together, I will certainly never say no to that! ). I probably won't be RPing with my OC (and likewise my girlfriend probably won't be RPing with her OC) any time soon, these two will be more reflective of where we are in real life than any kind of fanon we come up with them beyond personality traits and maybe some small backstory. But yeah, just wanted to introduce you all to her, hopefully sometime in the future I'll even get her to join the forums, even if she won't be super active. Oh, and before I go, I just have to share this gorgeous piece as well that my friend mirroredsea was too kind enough to put together for my girlfriend and I for her birthday as well! It would have been of our OCs but hers wasn't designed yet, and we both adore Pear Butter and Bright McIntosh, so asking him for a piece of those two felt right and I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out! Merry Christmas everypony, I hope you had a blessed holiday and that your final days of 2017 are wonderful as we prepare to ring in the New Year! That's all I've got for you everypony, until next time this is Batbrony signing off. I'm off!!! *cue dramatic exit*
