Hooves Down by Veggie55 Hooves Down by Veggie55
Honestly wanna know where this idea came from?



Fine.

You can thank ~mousesquisher and his comment: [link]


When I read "Hooves down", an idea formed (:
Inspiration comes from the weirdest places huh?



This is also an entry for Calpain's winter competition, anyone else entering? :la:


So yeah, I really like Scootascarf lately, don't you? ;d



Dude, 3 comics in 3 days, I should be sick more often :o

Wouldn't Lyra be an old mare since Scootaloo is a full grown mare?

That depends, if Scootaloo is only 18-20, and Lyra was around say 18-20 when Scootaloo was a little filly, than she would be around 30... which wouldn't look too different from a younger age.

Aww I remember reading this comic before even really getting into the fandom. I didn't even know who Scootaloo or Lyra is.

What? I was talking about her :iconarrowplz: :iconscootalooplz:. The joke is, since Lyra assumes that Scootaloo doesn't understand what the expression 'hands down' means, she changes 'hands' to 'hooves' to avoid confusion. Sorry, Lyra, that didn't work...

I know all about weird inspiration.... trust me. :D Wrote a whole fanfic about Twilight being tricked into thinking she was a plum because of a comment someone about Twilight being purple like a plum.

Sad, but true. I really did write that fic. :p Friend of mine use to have a Youtube channel were he read fanfics. Don't remember how it came up, but someone commented about Twilight being purple and that lead to plums. Ended up calling Plumlight & Plummie for a while.

It's cool, but just because it's old, doesn't excuse bad grammar. In the future, I might point some things out, and perhaps maybe you'll find Time to fix it. See ya then! :)

Technically, hands are almost always down too- down at your sides, or such. Plus Scoots lifted a hoof up right before saying that sooo...

It is generally accepted that Lyra believes in humans and will often insist on their existence or do things that would be rather silly for a pony to do, but normal for a human. The "hooves down" euphemism doesn't apply to ponies, but it applies to humans as "hands down".

And then Lyra confused Scoot.
