Arsonist Belle by DocWario Arsonist Belle by DocWario
:iconmrweasels: told me to draw this kind of

At first, it shocked her, then sent her into a worried frenzy. As she has just bumped the bookshelf, an aromatic candle set high atop took a mighty curved step from the less-than-subtle bump, careening over the edge and falling sideways upon the desk beside it. As the molten wax and flame began to over take the velvet whisps and sapphire inlays of her sister's newest piece of fashion, Sweetie Belle was frozen in place, not knowing both what to do nor what fate was to befall her -

But, as the flame began to grow, it did not spread like wildfire - it grew in size but was contained to the waxen circle surrounding it. It flickered and bellowed, casting an astonishing amber glow onto Sweetie Belle's hooves. As she lowered her legs and loosened herself from her cowled pose, suddenly the romantics of the thing began to take hold.

Slowly, at first, she made her way over towards the flickering fire. It seemed to dance for her, it lept and it swayed, a fierce display of potential, and yet so small, so young. It reminded her of herself.

And yet, it sought to please her. She applied gentle pressure to the sides of the dress, causing the wax to roll further and the flames to expand further upon the fabric. It welcomed this with a lively wave and sudden rise upwards.

It followed her direction, it learned from instruction. It was, like her child.

And so in that moment, Sweetie Belle found her calling. The song of her voice would always ring true. But the song of the flame would forever be her destiny.

"Vices?" - "Murder, arson, thievery, that sort of thing."

Well done, BTW! I really like that mixture of "slightly deranged" and "oddly fascinated". (And this image reminds of something, too, another picture or perhaps a video clip, but - buggered if I remember what it is!)

Is this by chance a Braid reference?

The writing and art style reminds me of one of the later act's portraits.

Wonderful job.

Cutie mark crusader arsonists go?

Kind of cool...and kind of scary. If she gets a cutie mark based on it, I think Celestia will know whos to blame for the fire spree

I used to wonder what fire could be (my little pyro)
Until you all shared its power with me.

Scorching blaze!
Searing pain!
A beautiful light!
Infernal flames!
Burning torch!
It's an easy feat, and screaming makes it all complete!

(My little pyro) Don't you know fire's my very best frieeeend?

Now if only I can find a sweetie-belle voice actor and a composer/arranger, I need to write a ponystyle song about the joy of watching things burn

"I'm gonna light you up! Light you up!
watch as everything smokes and smoulders
why let things get any older
when you can burn them now?

The phoenix is reborn in flame
Rocks are only broken boulders,
Take the burdens off your shoulders
and burn them to the ground!"

I'm having too much fun writing this XD

I know that feel, Sweetie Belle.
It's like the flames consumes all the anger trapped inside of you, symbiosis at it's finest.
The more anger the bigger the flames, never a miscommunication.
Now go out in the world and express yourself, little filly!

Love this one, I would like a goldframed canvas version of it hanging on my wall ^^

Sweetie Bell took up a new job as Pyro. It pays well and she gets to burn as many noobs as she can. That or she got a job arsonning zeppelins for old computer games. Either way Rarity is happy for the extra money. (little fillies eat a lot of food) (also grats on the EQD feature)
