A Heavy Burden by ScruffyToto A Heavy Burden by ScruffyToto
Go, go Twilight! Oh no, she's veering off course...

This is my take on something that's probably been done before.

(I'm soooo behind on everyone's art.)

Poor Twilight, first she lift 2 tons TOM for Rarity in Discord episode and now this, I wonder why she wont just levitate him ( she can levitate 50 tons giant bear, so why she even bother to use her physical strength, or maybe she just do it to stay in good physical shape ).

Should not she learn it in Pinkie Keen episode where she was smashed and crushed all over the place or in Discord episode where she was hurt by her friends and even had to lift 2 tons TOM for Rarity, poor Twilight, she is ready to endure so much for her friends ( sometime she not even use her powerful magic when it would make everything so much more easy ).

Haha nice one. :D It does kinda make you wonder how big Spike'll get, and what Twilight (who's practically his surrogate mother) will have to do with him.

I like how he's having trouble writing a note with the (now) tiny quill and paper.

Indeed but they are all the same size (well apart from Luna and Celestia)pretty much.

Actually Twilight became Alicorn and grown a bit in season 3 finale, so as much as she would still have to work hard to carry Spike around ( if she wont just use magic or make Spike walk himself ), she should be little bigger and have wings ( not that it change much, unless you count Twilight getting a bit of Earth Pony strength as Alicorn ).

Poor Twi. I see a very painful fall in her future...
I suppose it is her fault in a way for not encouraging Spyke to lead a healthy lifestyle when he was young enough to buy into it. "Get ripped to impress Rarity" and all that :D

She can always use magic if it will be to much for her, I bet she just do it to stay in good physical shape.

No need to worry, if Spike will get to heavy, Twilight can always use her magic to lift him ( she maybe have trouble to lift 2 Tons TOM with strength alone, but with her magic she can lift 40 tons Ursa Minor, so yea, Twilight is strong enough to handle it ).

Well, seeing as she now has more powers how, lifting Spike at this size should be a cake walk!

:iconcommanderex:
CommanderEX Featured By Owner May 20, 2013
Yes it would, but what challenge would it be to lift Spike with magic, and considering that Twilight rarely go out of library, lifting big size spike can be good excessive as long as she have strength to lift him, and once it will be to much, Twilight will just switch from strength to magic and problem solved.

Some part of me thinks that he would be leaner as he got older, and THEN becomes HUGE when he reaches adult age ^^
