Back at the Academy by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen Back at the Academy by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen

I wanted to draw this ever since the 'Wonderbolt Academy' episode. Don't know why I never got to it. It happens a lot of time with me.^^''''

I originally didn't intended to make it look like an old photo, it's just somehow happened. Don't know if I should regret it or not.

After I finished it, just realized that I should have given them a different mane style, to somehow show it happened years ago. Well, somehow Spitfire looks more like a teenager, so I think it's okay.

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

SORRY this is just f

I would laugh if there is a back episode about the academy when they went there and that is truly how it was
FrankHunter0012 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013
Ever since the season 2 finale and wonderbolts academy episode ive always been confused about one thing. Why is Spitfire only a warrant officer 2 yet Soarin is a major. Yet shes the one in charge.

I love his expression, lol. =)
SeriousJupiter Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
I love it. Soarin looks delightfully grumpy, but come on now, is being a wingpony really that bad? At least you got into the academy and later you'll become a Wonderbolt. Cheer up, dude.
All of your art is amazing!!!

LittleCloudie Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Student General Artist
So that's Soarin? At first I thought it was that white colt with a black mane and tail in Wonderbolts Academey...
FireFlash-FrostBlast Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Student Artist
It lloks grat! But the Soarin' shipping makes it worse...
SPARTAN064 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013
I like this. It does look like they are both younger, the hair is okay.
temporos Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Is that Soarin or Fleetfoot? I'm guessing Soarin, but I think he has a darker coat.
djthomp Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013
That is awesome!
KIIRO-16 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Soarin never even came out!! :( Not even in the background...only on silly posters!

"It's okay, Soary-boy! Just because the drill instructor got mad at you and you're now going to be mowing the lawn for the rest of Academy doesn't mean you're a COMPLETE bozo."

"They made us a team! Isn't that awesome?"

This got me thinking, have you ever read Wild Sky Yonder? Well, started reading (it's unfinished)
Yoshimon1 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looks like Soarin doesn't like being the wingpony.
Or, you know, maybe he just discovered they serve no pie in the canteen...
Kyoshyu Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
He was not amused. :)
JamesRye Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013
Amazing~ <3

I love SpitfirexSoarin, too bad that DashxSpitfire or DashxSoarin got more stuff about then about those two ponies together. :/
Musical-Medic Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I honestly think their manes look fine ^^
I honestly don't think their manes would've changed that much.
It's yet another very lovely piece from you :D
