Meet the Ancestors by CaptainHoers Meet the Ancestors by CaptainHoers
tag: absurd_res
tag: :iconbobross:

Interpretation 1, for those who like reading: Art based on the story Harmony's Wrath (incidentally, by me). Read to the whole story here, [link] or rate & comment here [link]

Interpretation 2, for those who want an off-the-cuff random explanation: The main characters of the show had Alternian-style ancestors who looked almost exactly like them, and quadrupedalism is actually a larval stage of pony development.
Interpretation 2a, take it or leave it: Modern ponies lack a bipedal form due to an evolutionary process called neoteny [link] where juvenile traits are retained into adulthood (in the real world this is seen in flightless birds and axlotl).
This explanation is not related to the linked fan fic.

Interpretation 3: HIGH FANTASY ANTHRO PONIES, WOOP :la:

Interpretation 4: This is in fact a D&D game. From left to right, these are the party's Bard (with levels in Artificer), Fighter, Ranger, Wizard (prestige class: Eldritch Knight), Rogue and Druid.

Version without the iffy Bob Ross-style background: [link]

EDIT: 200 faves? Wow, that's... never happened to me before. Neat!

I like interperatation two (mainly because I'm a huge Homestuck fan).
Either way, this is very nice! :D

Not to sound like a stinker, but it may have been better if you'd used the alt ponies instead (e.g. firefly & surprise).

There's a good reason why it's themselves, explained in the story. Also if you're familiar with Homestuck, it's more like the Troll Ancestors, who were essentially copies of themselves.

That certainly makes more sense.

On the D&D interpretation I agree on the classes save for Dash, I think she is more of Monk sort.

I doubt she'd have the discipline for it. She's certainly got the speed, but her alignment is definitely chaotic awesome.
