MLP - Iris page 1 by merrypaws MLP - Iris page 1 by merrypaws
The idea for this has sat in my head for well over a year now. I was simply listening to music one day, and all of a sudden, 'Iris' by Goo goo Dolls came on. And for some reason, the first thing that came to mind was that the song fit Cotton and Greg to the letter. Ever since then, I've wanted to draw a comic of the two set to this song, but I always kept running into various interruptions or distractions. But now it's done, and here it is.

First page is pretty introspective on Greg's part. He's a little bit apprehensive and a little awed at the free care and affection he's receiving, but soon finds that he likes it.

is there a fanfic to this couple?
I love how her name is pony normal, but his is Greg! That's awesome.

Greg and Cotton are a very unique couple for sure. :D

also, i can't read this without the song flooding my head (and, on occasion, i'll hear it when it's not playing. like a musical ringing of the ears). I...I think i might...*sniff*'s just so...bitter-sweet...*sniff*

this (by which i mean Cotton & Greg) needs a fanfic. NOW! (if this is based off of an existing fanfic, my deepest apologies. i have no idea in the slightest what for, but a gentleman always apologizes)
I'm actually working on one right now (gotta finish another fic first). And in the meantime, I managed to find one on fimfiction: [link]
Haven't heard the song in what seems like a decade, yet I recognized it from the second panel. You took one of my favorite songs and set it for a changeling. You have no idea how happy this made me. I know they say the internet has everything, but you still can't expect to find a cherished memory crossed with a current obsession. It would have been one thing if it were just ponies, but I happen to identify with being a changeling. I can say I'm happy, but this is one of those times I can't find an adjective powerful enough to describe just how happy I am. Thank you.
