Mother-less Day by MLP-Silver-Quill Mother-less Day by MLP-Silver-Quill
Whew barely got this done before the special day came and went.

This started back around the last Father's Day, where I read an emotional but also sad comic called "Breakdown". This is my attempt to give an optimistic look to a tough situation.

I do regret that I couldn't include Big McIntosh. Time and cast size were a big factor here.

I owe huge thanks to :iconboneswolbach:, who created both Ponyville backgrounds. I couldn't have finished this in time without them.

Happy Mother's Day to all!

EDIT: Someone once asked why online artists link back to Equestria Daily when they feature our comics. The simple answer is that it's a celebration. We put time and hard work into these comics, and the fandom reciprocates. It's a great feeling and a wonderful charge.

Now, there are some recurring questions that have arisen, so here are my answers to each:

Where is Spike/Shining Armor/Twilight's Father? - For the sake of this comic, they are all holding a table for lunch and waiting for Twilight and her mother to arrive.

What about Scootaloo? - I'm not on board with the fan theory that she is an orphan. After three seasons, we still haven't met all the parents of the Mane 6, and Scootaloo's enjoyed very little development. Until we have more info, I'm going to assume her parents have been off-screen so far.

Aren't you forgetting Granny Smith? - Ah, here's a tricky one. Granny Smith is an important member of the Apple family and I don't want to dismiss the character's role. However, I think it'd be a disservice to say that, since they still have a caregiver, Applejack and Apple Bloom wouldn't miss their mother. On a day like Mother's Day, that absence can be difficult and I think a scene like this wouldn't be out of character.

Thanks to every one who commented, faved, and took the time to read this comic!

The orphan theory sounds kinda dark for the show, but this comic was still cute.
