:star: EDIT: The fanfiction is here! [link] Go read it! :meow:

:star: EDIT 2: No, Blossom is NOT pregnant again - she's just had a foal, which is why she's still rather big! You can't expect her tummy to just snap back into place straight away. :giggle: She was much bigger than this whilst she was pregnant, I just didn't draw her. So, no, there are no more foals on the way! :XD:


Remember this picture I uploaded in February with a pregnant Blossom in it? Well guess what? She had a little colt!! :love: Everyone, please welcome baby Rowan to the Papillio herd. :aww: As you can see, Pierce is one proud father! I can't wait to draw more of this family - I love them to bits. :giggle: My sister (~TsukiJewels) gifted me with a little story for them which she will upload to her account. In the meantime, here's a tiny excerpt from it:

Rowan tottered closer to Pierce, looking as enthralled as his father. “Daddy!” he declared in a high, clear voice, gazing up at him expectantly. Dazedly, Pierce lowered his head and closed his eyes when he felt the small, soft nose nuzzle against him, overwhelmed by emotion...

If you want to read more, keep an eye on her account! The story is so adorable. Thanks, sis! :la: And big thank-you's to ~daughterofthestars for her patience, and also to =EndlessEmeralds and *JeweledFaith for organizing Blossom's foal shower earlier in the year. That was so sweet! :heart: And expect to see a proper ref sheet soon for Rowan.

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

Rowan is so cute, all my mares want him as a foal, he is a perfect match of Pierce and Blossom's coats. He will be a handsome stallion when he grows up.

MichelleWalker Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That sounds awesome, but remember, Blossom isn't my character so you'd better ask :icondaughterofthestars: first! :)
FoxyWolf914 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
