The Wub That Binds by MLP-Silver-Quill The Wub That Binds by MLP-Silver-Quill
This was inspired by :iconhowxu:'s Why is she your friend?, which was inspired by the video Epic Wub Time: Musicians of Ponyville. Therefore, vicariously... um... muffins. Yeah.

I really like the odd couple dynamic fans have created around these two.

Special thanks go to :iconkefkafloyd:, who provided color guides for Octavia, Vinyl Scratch, and Rainbow Dash.

Hope you enjoy!

UPDATE: Whoo-hoo! Equestria Daily Post! I love it when this happens.

Thanks to all the folks who favorite and comment on this piece, both before and after its feature on EQ. You guys are awesome!

ya know, I came to your DA expecting laughs galore and while I've seen a bunch of funny comics
I've nearly been brought to tears as well by how sweet and heartwarming a lot of these comics are.
you're amazing Silver Quill, and I'm so glad you're a part of this fandom.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

XDDD, but seriously Silver, nicely done ^w^, i find amaizing how the fans had shaped those 2 so perfectly, despise the fact they are polar opposites
