when i was a baby my brohter used to do this when he was babysitting me he was 10 years older then me so he used to just place me in his lap while he was playing mario on the super nintendo we even got a picture ^^
"Big Mac, wacha doin?" Applebloom walks over to watch Mac play one of his games. He works hard everyday and this is favorite way to wind down.
"Just trying to beat my score." He pauses the game as AB walks in front of him and crawls under the controller. She lays back into him as he puts his arms around her and continues playing. "I though you were going to play with your friends."
AB watches the little pixelled characters bounce around the screen glued to the game. "Sweetiebelle had to go home early and Scootaloo wants to camp in the fort. She went to get some things." She spreads out and lets out a yawn as her eyes begin to close.
"Tired? Maybe you should just hit the hay and I will tell Scootaloo that you girls can just sleep inside the house." He plays for a moment waiting for a response but when he does not get one he looks down to see AB had already fallen asleep. He quickly saves his game and turns it off. He moves gently so not to wake AB as he lifts her up and places her on his back. He turns to walk out the barn when he spies Scoots at the window. "How long have you been there?"
"I..uhh... I just did not want to disturb the moment. She... she is just so happy to hang out with you." Scoots looks at the ground as she paws it shyly looking away. "She sure is lucky to have a brother like you. I know I would be." She keeps her eyes to the ground hanging her head a little low as she turns to walk away. She stops suddenly as she feels Big Mac's hoof on her head, as he pulls her close.
"Your a good friend to her Scootaloo." He looks down at Scoot' slightly embarrassed face and a few tears in her eyes. "Besides, your around so much. I feel like your another little sister to this family. Come on in. You can sleep in Applebloom's room tonight." Scoot looks up at him with a big smile as she wraps her arm around one of his legs to hug him. She follows him upstairs were he tucks them both in for the night. As he closes the door his voice can be heard from behind it. "Goodnight you two."
Scoots looks at the door with a small tear in her eye and smile on her face as she whispers, "Good night big brother." She lays back and looks over at AB still smiling as she closes her eyes to dream of a life she is starting feel lucky to have.
Applebloom sure looks comfy. Then again Mac looks comfy to.
Younger siblings just want to hang out some times and Mac is the kind of brother that love his sisters and does not mind. I tend to follow the idea that Scoots has no family or well, family that is not available. That they are either to busy or she has no siblings. Hence why she longs for a big sister like RD. I imagine it has to be hard on her at times seeing Applebloom with her sister and brother. Thus why her peeking in like that. She so does not want to disturb it, but she so longs for it. Still Mac is the kind of brother that would be cool like that. He looks out for his sisters and his sister's best friends. So, whats an extra little sister anyway. He is a big enough brother for them both.
I really love your art. I am enjoy it a lot and thank you so much for sharing it with us all.
