Such quality in your pictures. Nicely drawn!
One thing perplexes me though... Why are there so many pictures with ponies nipping the long feathers of the pegasi's wings? It's not really preening, since preening is not exactly biting or cutting the feathers. It's more about feather alignment and cleaning.
I guess it's just one of those fandom things that are meant to be more cute than accurate. Immersion-breaking is a more suitable word, if you ask me.

I'm pretty sure preening is a private thing. Celestia is now Molestia, and the pegasi have not taught Twilight much about her wings.

I see all these "Molestia" comments...

Why can't Celestia just be doing something a bit nice and motherly for Twilight? After all, she's never had wings before, and those things need proper care. I'm being dead serious. I'm studying to be a raptor rehabilitation and matted feathers pose a huge health risk. 

Stop with all the Molestia comments. Please?

Exactly! What Celestia and Twilight have is a MOTHER-DAUGHTER relationship, NOT a romantic/homosexual relationship.

Right? Sometimes the MLP fandom baffles me. I adore the show, I even have a few toys (my Build-A-Bear Fluttershy is my pride and joy) and I support all relationships, be they man and woman, or man/man or woman/woman, but this is getting ridiculous. Can't characters have a strong love for one another without banging their brains out?

Exactly! Love isnt all about sex and/or babies! My parents havent had sex since i was 10 and im 13 now! Shining and Cade-Cade are married and they dont have kids! Its possible they WILL have kids someday but we'll see.

It's in the interpretation. I don't see a point in interpreting it in a way that isn't motherly, Also that's Celestia's hair there and not Molestia's. Twi IS Blushing though, But it might just be her being worrisome again.
Reply
:iconcelestial-rainstorm:
Celestial-Rainstorm Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Twilight is indeed worrisome. I thought she was blushing because Celestia noticed how she hadn't quite taken care of her wings properly. She doesn't know how yet!

She always had like a motherly or sisterly feel around Twilight in my opinion. And it is true about preening. It is a very important part of wing/feather care

Wow.
I didn't even THINK of a Molestia thing going on here. (Totally made sense)
True, I agree with you.
I think it's more of a motherly thing instead of a Molestia thing.
