Next Gen Doodles 1 by curiouskeys Next Gen Doodles 1 by curiouskeys
Apologies for not uploading any nextgen stuff in a while, I've been stupid busy with my new training at work, getting over being sick and trying to balance everything else going on in my usual day to day- so have some nextgen doodles I've done in between all the chaos! Let me know if you guys like these and I'll post more~

1) "I can't wait anymore..."
It's probably less than obvious that I'm not a huge Sparity shipper. I thought it was cute at first, but when Ember came into the picture and I saw how Rarity reacted to her and Spike interacting I felt like she was being a little unfair to Spike. So have some Adult!Spike telling Rarity that he's giving up on his feelings for her so he can fully give his heart to Ember.

2) "You big goon..."

Oh noooo, they're cute! One of the first doodles I did for my nextgen. If I can be honest these two are probably my favorite as I have more doodles of them being happy and cute than I do of anyone else right now. I wanted to do like a sad Rarity in the background, but at this point she's likely already accepted that he's not her Spikey-Wikey anymore and moved on to be with her Maudy-poo. The two of them are a bit older in this with Spike having reached adult hood and Ember being a good handful of years older than him. I just love them so much okay?

3) "Baby, mine, don't you cry..."
I'm not crying you're crying! ;A; Rarajack is probably going to be the death of me, so here we go! I like to imagine Rara being the one to carry Cameo to term, just so AJ could fuss over her all the time, but also because she insisted and AJ can't say no to her Rara. Tummy nudges and singing to the baby belly are just too precious not to draw, so that's pretty much what inspired this. The wrap around Rara's hoof right there is just a medical thing, I headcanon her as having a few difficulties with carrying Cameo as he was such a huge foal and she is such a tiny popstar, but otherwise she was very healthy during her pregnancy!

4) Sleepytime junction
This was a doodle from my initial headcanon that Flutters carried Celestia and Discord's twins during that whole debacle, since I follow Earthsong9405 's headcanon that Celestia can't carry foals to term, but I've since scrapped the idea. So have an old picture of Fluttershy carrying the twins and experiencing the weirdest side affects as a result. Her sudden narcolepsy was courtesy of Laudanum and the increase in mane growth was courtesy of Abaddon. Weirdo babies.

5) Story time with Dad

OH NOOOOO, THEY'RE REALLY CUTE! Another terrible moment of I'm in love with this ship so I need to draw a million cute things of them talking/reading to baby bellies because I hate myself and want to die from cuteness. Although we only got the one episode with them, I honestly adored their sassy dynamic, and just kinda really love Quibble, and thought QP and Dash would hella read Daring Do books to JJ even before he was born. God, this family....it's one of my favorites!

You do know that Spike is a kid right? I don't think Rarity would want to be in a relationship with a child.

Oh Christ I just reread what I said. I'm so sorry. I never saw the first bit, just the area of Rarity mistreating him romantically(?) and went off.
That was an idiotic thing to do, and I apologize.

Lol it's fine, I apologize if I got sassy. I was running on zero hours of sleep when I saw that comment, so I kinda of just no filtered all over you XD

But yeah, I agree with you regardless. I don't ship Sparity either, but I do acknowledge that Spike has real feelings for Rarity at one point which is why he feels the need to tell her he's moving on when he gets older. He cherishes that feeling and, even though it stops being romantic for him, he'll always love and respect Rarity as one of his best friends.

On the other hand, I imagine Rarity never had any kind of feelings for Spike outside of considering him in the highest regard because of how he pampers and dotes on her love of attention. But in the end she starts to get a little too reliant on him always being there, so when she starts to see him move away from her she latches and exhibits something close to jealousy- despite the emotion being nothing more than a shallow need to keep his attention exclusively to herself. Nothing romantic, just "we've been friends for so long and you've always been there, please don't leave me alone".

A little self centered on her part, but that's always been Rares downside in my mind. As generous as she is, she's not without her flaws!

Haha, I never said Spike was a "kid" in my nextgen. But you're absolutely right and that is mainly the reason why I, curious t. keys, do not ship it in the most definitive way, you smart person you!

Great attention to detail! A+ 10/10

So he came up to her to tell her he didn't have a crush on her anymore? That's kind of funny actually. I would imagine she would be a tad bewildered.

I can see flutters after the birth being like "Discord you owe me big time..."

I don't know how to feel about this. On one hand I'm a big Sparity shipper. But on the other in my own next gen him and Rarity get divorced for similar reasons that you've pointed out. Though I have him get with Starlight Glimmer. Though his relationship with Ember did grow.

Interesting! I'm not a fan of Starlight Glimmer so she's not featured in my nextgen, but that's cool that you have your own nextgen! :D

I'd like to see the spikexember one too!
I'm also not really a fan of sparity. I think anything beyond his crush on her is weird :shrug:
yay!! I'll def answer your poll if you put one out!

curiouskeys Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2016
Yeah. I mean the crush was cute, like I said, but she just seemed to take him for granted a lot and he needs someone that'll love him 100% of the time, not just when it seemed convenient.

Have you ever seen/read Marmalade Boy?

It's an old anime/manga from the early 90s. I've watched it about a hundred times at this point, but I always imagined the moment Spike tells Rarity he's giving up on her was similar to a moment in the anime.

I highly recommend it btw. It's so dramatic and cheesy though, haha, as a kid I remember watching and being like on the edge of my seat for some of the plot arcs XD
