Surprise visit (Commissioned) by tan575 Surprise visit (Commissioned) by tan575
Art by :iconcsimadmax:

Takes place shortly after the episode 'Sweet and Elite', Shining Armor pays a surprise visit for Twilight on her birthday at her library home. Inspiration came from watching soldiers returning from their tour of duty and surprising their children by popping out of large gift boxes.

And this explains why we didn't see Spike in that episode, he was busy helping move Shinning to Twilight's home.

if Twilight is like a big sister to him, then Shining is a like a big brother. Of course he'd help.

I can see how some people would think that way, but I see Twilight more as Spike's mom.

a little filly raising a baby dragon? I'd see Celestia as taking him in, but Twilight visited so often that he grew close to her and ended up living with her.

Another flaw in Shining Armour's abrupt introduction. He could've at least stopped by the party for a few minutes. They were in Canterlot.

Fuck but was that saccharine.

Still, am i the only one who thought it was kind of stupid that this brother who is supposedly one of the most important thing in Twilight Sparkle's life is never revealed to exist until his introductory episode at the end of the season?  Maybe i would have cared that he was being raped by an evil bug if i knew him as a character instead of being told in a horrible music number that Twilight likes him.

Not necessarily. They (sort of) established what Sweetie Belle was before revealing it was Rarity's younger sibling. Foreshadowing is very easy, even the hacks at the helm of MLP did it a couple of times early on in the run, but for some reason everyone involved just completely stopped giving a shit sometime around episode 10, and it was all down canyon from there.

over thinking it a bit. I mean they always introduce like a ex lover or family member or something in shows whatever they can get a story out of. saying she has a brother when they never said she was an only child is perfectly acceptable and it just creates more possibilities.

It's not acceptable when we're supposed to actually care about the character in question.  I'm not going to care about someone just because some horrible music number says he's close to the main character.

Uh... if you say so.  I've bumped into more than one brony who agreed with me and said that they should have introduced Shining Armor as a character at the beginning of season two so we were more invested when something goes wrong in the season finale.  Establishing characters has been an enormous problem in the show.

well I agree that It would be better if they established characters before they had major roles but I don't think it ruins the show that they dont.
