Almost thither by Lysok Almost thither by Lysok
Once upon a Heart's Warming Eve.

Daughter of a unicorn noble has found an earth pony foal freezing in an abandoned cottage. His parents tried to find some food, but it was too cold last night and they did not come back. Yet, there is still chance for him.

Edit: :iconshadow-dragon-3d: has made an epic tune for this image! I don't believe there could be more fitting music. He has some amazing pieces on his YouTube channel, so if you enjoy listening to film soundtracks, try more of his stuff! Be sure to check the tune here: [link]

The style... it reminds me of a Disney movie for some reason. I like how the colors blend in nicely. Nothing is too saturated. Just with this little picture can tell a story. I might have to dust off the old pen, but we'll see. Nice job :D

For some reason this reminds me of the end of The Giver when they are sledding to the village and the main character is giving the child warm memories to get through the cold. My god that was years ago and I just rememberd it.

Great picture. But it was my understanding that unicorns and earth ponies didn't get on very well back then. So it's surprising to me to see unicorns from this era show such compassion to one not of their own like this.

This takes place after founding of Equestria, which is not yet under rule of princesses. I thought by then all hatred would be gone, yet you could still see differences between nobles and farmers.

H,,... probably just generic tales of such sort. A noble family found a lost child, etc etc.
