Beautifully drawn, and the storyline was really heart-warming.  Well done, I wish I could think of something more meaningful to say, in response to it.

Would you mind if I tried to make some full size art of this? I just love this story and this pony, but she's not easy to find anywhere else, especially in this amazing style.

That's why I asked. Disappointing. I so love the images and story of this one. I even argued with M.A. Larson about whether Star Swirl is a boy or a girl, based on this. :P

its a girl. all pony toys except for shining armor are girls.

Well the discussion was based on the fact that he wrote Luna Eclipsed, which references Star Swirl the Bearded.

I understand this is a girl.

Luna Eclipsed came out long after the toy Starswirl came out...there is actually a g3 pony named starswirl too

This is beautiful. I was curious, was this Star Swirl your original design or was she already designed for the contest?

No this is not my design, she already existed as a toy

Starswirl the bearded is just a mentioned character, the real Starswirl, which is show here, is a bonus pony toy that comes along with Rarity and her carriage. It started selling long before Starswirl the bearded were even mentioned.

So it's show canon vs. toy canon, right?

'Cause, y'know, several months into the future, the bearded one has much more... presence.

"Presence" as in "an entire section of the royal library."

Sakuyamon Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is not canon in any way other than that I used the toy which was made by hasbro. the contest this was for wanted us to make some story that would fit for Starswirl. At that point of time we had not yet even heard of the Bearded one.

I have to say, ever since I saw this in Equestria Daily, I have always admired the amount of creativity that has gone into this comic is superb. Your art managed to make this look even more beautiful and your attention to detail with the design of the character herself and the swirls of the starts and constolations are stunning. It was no wonder you won the competition. ^^

Well done! =D
