Cheers Mate by TheArtrix Cheers Mate by TheArtrix
This one was sitting on my hard drive for a month or so, so I took the past two Livestream sessions to wrap it up. Just a simple scene of a few male inhabitants of Ponyville chilling in the local pub, having a pint and discussing current events with the soothing sound of footbal in the background.

Love this, and Big Mac is gorgeous!

THE DRINKS I ENVISION THESE GUYS DRINKING:
DISCORD: Some weird blue thing in a funky glass with fruit, umbrellas & glowing plastic ice cubes.
BULK BICEPS: A good strong stout.
MR. CAKE: Strawberry Daiquiri.
BIG MAC: A nice hard cider.

It's kind of an odd bunch to see hanging out together like this as they really have very little in common. And yet I want to think reasons it would work because they're all some of my favorite male characters from the show.

Very nicely done bare scene by the way c: I really struggle with indoor environments myself.

It simply boils down to there not being a lot of guys in Ponyville.

Indoor environments are an artwork on their own. It boils down to practice and looking up reference pictures.

Or maybe It boils down to using 'boils down' in sentences more.

It boils down to me not realizing that it boils down to me not realizing that I used "it boils down" twice in the same comment. It boils down to laziness, I suppose.

There are so many questions you can have fun wondering about: What are they drinking? How did they meet? What are they talking about? Who's holding that pub?

Very nice and entertaining. Thanks, TheArtrix; once more, you've done it!

One of the reasons I didn't disclose much, it's more fun to ponder about this yourself. The basic idea is that, since there aren't that many guys in Ponyville, they naturally gravitate to each other for company. They're essentially just discussing current events; Celestia's plans for tax-code reforms, or some small crime that happened in a nearby municipality.

Mr. Cake - Listen Big Mac, it's not a sound investment. You're just throwing your money away unless the market trend were to take a serious turn for the better. Given the current status quo of the market, I don't see that happening for the next several business years.
Bulk - Yeeeeeaaaah!
Discord - Personally, I think it's crazy myself as well. What was Applebloom thinking trying to invest all of your money in pumpkins? What she should be doing is investing it in my cotton candy business. It's a year-round treat and everyone loves it!
Big Mac - Eeyup.

It almost looks like Discord, Snowflake, and Cake are trying to talk Mac into something shady, maybe a heist or perhaps apple smuggling.

Mr. Cake: Okay, Big Mac, here's the skinny; thanks to his undercover work in the palace, Discord's finally found the exact location and security details to the Princess's Golden Apple Tree. Rumor has it that each apple weighs up to 5 pounds of solid 24 karat gold, and with as many as 200 apples growing on it, that's enough to gold to keep us rich and happy for a long time.
Discord: I don't need the money, myself, I just like making a mess of things!
Mr. Cake: *rolls eyes* Right, anyway: the only problem is, the tree naturally generates a magic shield of Pure Wholesome Protection, bona fide chaos-proof magic that even Discord can't break. So we're going to have to get...creative, to get our hands on it. Luckily, the perfect event is coming up soon in Canterlot to give us the time we need to get the goods. *slips Big Mac a pamphlet for the upcoming Winter Solstice Celebration*. I'll be catering the event, and a certain...surprise, in the cake will ensure enough time to slip in, grab the apples, and get the buck out before anypony notices. We've got the brains *Discord taps his temple knowingly*, the muscle *BB lets out a YEAH*, and the alibi *points to himself*. There's only one thing we don't have: an expert on Ancient Apple Lore. We need you to get us past that shield of Pure Wholesome Protection and make us rich beyond our wildest dreams.

The prices are listed in Equestrian Bits, I know the portrayal of Equestrian economics is kinda wonky, but I do get the impression that one bit gets you more than most of real world currencies.

I could make the same argument about Discord being portrayed as some bishie-pretty boy; young men don't have grey hair.

For me, his voice, mannerisms and grey eyebrows lean me towards thinking he is an older man, regardless of the whole immortal demi-god thing.
