Stand Back and Watch Me Shine, Sister! by Lionel23 Stand Back and Watch Me Shine, Sister! by Lionel23
Commission by :iconpalestorm:*palestorm. This drawing is of a young adult Sweetie Bell as part of my fanfic story.

Originally I just needed a reference sketch of how she might look as an adult as old as Twilight Sparkle is, but I wanted to give it some context if I was going to have it commissioned anyway. In this instance, Rarity is invited to a upscale ball and doesn't know that her sister is going to be the spotlight singer, and she's singing Taylor Swift's "The Best Day". It is meant to be Sweetie Bell's tribute to the best sister ever, and Rarity can't help but try (and fail) to hide her tears from the adoring attention of her little sister.

This was actually a cutie mark that showed up in the back of a toy box and in a pop corn recipe made by the hub(currently discovery channel), so everyone assumed it was canon.

It would be nice if it was just the note and not the shield

I'm fine with the shield as long as the colors from the center are a little different

If you'd watched the show up until that point and known the CMC didn't have cutie marks, then by process of elimination it must be a new episode they obtained them in. I'm sorry, but if you asked 'Since when?', I find it kind of funny that you want a spoiler alert. You asked a question about when it happened, and you were answered >.>

The moment her performance ended, the crowd was cheering louder than ever. Sweetie Belle however was only looking at one poyn, her big sistr, Rarity who had tears of pride in her eyes "My little sister, is all grown up." she said and began clapping enthusiastically as well. Sweetie's eyes moistened, feeling very much touched.
