You Haven't Aged A Day by shadowdark3 You Haven't Aged A Day by shadowdark3
Next Picture:


Previous Picture:


Remember when I thought I could be finished with all the Shire pictures by mid-August? HAH! So much for that! Well, anyways, here you are. I'll be continuing this scene in the next picture with a visit from the Sackville Baggins.

Oh, right, Bilbo. He's Spike. I know he's not a filly, but if I ever did The Hobbit, I'd want Spike playing Bilbo. Obviously, this rules Spike out for Gollum, so if you were hoping he would get the part, sorry about that. As always, I'm happy to go into more detail about my choice of character if you want to ask or have something to say about it.

That's about it for now. Thanks for sticking with me and if you're mad about a panel depicting their laughter being left out for the second time in a row, I'm sorry. :heart:

Oh, one last thing...how do I get that ridiculously out-of-place-looking "knock knock" to fit in better?

Oh this is so cute as well as very funny! :woohoo: I just hope that we won't end up with a season 29 with Spike still where he is today, physically speaking. :D
Hmm… As for getting a season 29, well... that WOULD BE AWSOME!

Wouldn't it be so funny and cute if a female dragon came to ponyville and then she and Rarity created a love triangle around Spike for a couple of episodes, or maybe just one and then Spike would choose Rarity after Rarity decides to let Spike choose whoever makes him the most happy. :) Does anybody else share in this idea for an episode?

Chip the glasses, crack the plates, that's what Spike the dragon hates. So carefully, carefully with the plates!

It's the other way around for me--seems like I just finished it a few days ago. Then that darn life happens and time zips by, and before you know it, it's been nearly a month.

Spike would make a wonderful Bilbo, although I reckon more for The Hobbit than LOTR. After all, who would be Frodo?

what if spike was frodo, and as the ring corrupted him he turned into a huge dragon, and by the time he gets to mordor he ends up taller than the black gates, turns mordor into his new kingdom, and the ring gets melted as he takes a lava bath?

Have you even seen the movies or read the book(s)? Frodo destroys the ring when Gollum bites his finger off and falls into mount doom. The book ends with Frodo, Bilbo and Gandalf going to the middle-earth holy lands.

I have done both. there are so many different things they could have done in the actual story as well that would have destroyed the ring more easily as well (call the eagles, summon tom bombadil after they throw the ring into the volcano instead of running around like a bunch of spastic retards, feed ring to a cow and catapult the thing into the volcano, keeping the ring in a higher form of confinement than on a necklace, etc.)

Well, it would certainly eliminate the awkward bromantic tension between Same and Frodo.

I wouldn't think so; after all, it's just adding an extra M in the middle, with a (silent?) E at the end. Not much change there. ;)

It will work out really well for that scene in Rivendel where he sees Frodo/Pip wearing the ring around his neck and transforms for a moment. ;)
