Off to the Frontline by merrypaws Off to the Frontline by merrypaws
I was looking at some of *Equestria-Prevails's 'The New Royal Guard' art lately, and it put this image in my head.

Singe reassuring his wife, Leafygreen, and their son, Tinder, before heading towards the battlefront to answer the Princess' summons. I imagine that having a dragon, even a relatively small one, on their side would be an asset Princess Celestia couldn't overlook.

So wonderful to see that even dragons and ponies can start families together. The TV show seriously needs to show more good dragons older than Spike. It would be a breath of fresh air to see that.

Theme of Singe: [link]

Theme of Leafygreen and Tinder: [link]

Singe returns in the fanfic Fluttershy's Dawn along with someone else's dragon OC (seen here: [link] to help Dawn Dew redeem himself. Tell me what you think of the themes and tell me what you think of my idea. Read the fic first, though, to understand. Okay?

I can't open either of those links on my computer, because they link to youtube's mobile service. However, I did look up both pieces manually, and... No. Sorry, but I have to be honest: No.
I haven't given much thought to the soundtracks of my characters, but I know the music you had marked as Singe's theme was nothing like him. He's going to the war only because he has to, not because he wants. He's more a scholar than a warrior.
I liked the music you picked for Leafygreen and Tinder better, but it still isn't exactly what I'd choose as their theme.
I'm sorry, I can't relly explain why they don't fit, I don't have any musical talent. I just know they don't catch the mood for my characters.

Also, if you're gonna ask for someone's opinion on a fic, it would be polite to give them a direct link to it. (hint, hint)

First of all, did you at least find Singe's theme bearable?

Second, here's the link to the fic: [link]

Oh, and the constructicons from TFA help Dawn Dew later along with Singe and Nidhogg. Tell me what you think now. Please?

In a word, no. Nothing particularly wrong with the music itself, but it doesn't suit Singe at all, in any context.

I don't have the time to read the fic right at this instant, but I'll take a look at it later. Though I must say that the little excerpt you gave me is sounding a little strange. I don't really see how TFA would mix well with MLP. And why does it have to be my Singe, anyway? Couldn't you come up with your own dragon character, then you wouldn't have to ask anyone's permission for how you use him.

Sorry. I just really like your work. You're awesome. And about the fic, I'll wait. I'm the master of no-ones fate, so feel free to look at it when you feel like it. And I just think TFA is just as awesome as MLP(NOT that I'm a basement boy!). You dig?

I understand.
And I'm flattered, really, it's just always a little odd to an artist when someone else starts to enthusiastically describe their ideas for some character, but those ideas don't really meet what the artist herself had in mind. One one hand, I'm glad they like my characters, and I don't want to spoil anyone's joy of storytelling, but at the same time it's a little like they're taking the character away from me.

That's why I suggested you'd make your own dragon character. Then you wouldn't be dependent on my will all the time. It wouldn't even matter if the character was based on Singe at the beginning. Over time, he would definitely develop into something completely different, with his own place in his own creator's heart.

Oh, god, that was beutiful! It's just so hard to find original material nowadays. Still, what did you think of the fanfic, though? And by the way, do you agree with the voice of Bulkhead from TFA being the voice of Singe? And do you at least find the constructicons funny? Like I said, I'm not the master of your fate but I like conversing with fellow deviants (When will YouTube learn?)
