Wanted - Rarity by Lionheartcartoon Wanted - Rarity by Lionheartcartoon
Edit: For those wondering how this was made, here's a video tutorial I cooked up: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYu6RO…

Ok... while she seems elaborate, she was a bit less problematic to work on than, say, Fluttershy or Pinkie Pie (Twilight having been the first real test)

Her tail being in sections rather than a mass (even if I did NOT make it in sections to animate) comes off much better I think :)
Plus, having her sword drawn and at the ready is something I had the idea to do ever since I thought of those 'Wanted' posters :meow:

She's essentially the Swordsmare of the group.

---

Magical seamstress with a franchised fashion boutique chain from Port Canterlot, Rarity had recently opened her latest store in Ponyville docks.  Be it by luck, influence or plain hard work for her craft, she became known by the whole town as a generous pony.  Great friends with her sponsor (And investor), Fancy Pants, she became even greater friends with his wife, Fleur de Lys.

In his last letter however, Fancy pants was fearing for his life as he was in defense of the Zebrican's way of life.  He had apparently found out they were being traded as slaves in the sugar plantations.

Soon enough, crown guards were knocking at her door to arrest her and Fleur for conspiracy.  Knowing she was innocent and bent on helping Fleur and her friend, she resisted arrest, showing off incredible skills with a sword. 

Rarity can litterally thread a needle with that blade.  With Twilight's help, she enchanted a special stone on a ring and the hilt of the sword to react only to Rarity's magic.  It is nearly impossible for her to lose her grip on that weapon, except if she falls unconscious.

That makes many beleive that the spirit of her long-lost husband inhabits the sword and defends his wife, earning her the nickname of 'White Widow'.

Of course Rarity's a fencer.  This girl couldn't be something that -wasn't- elegant and graceful! :) Well played! And the story is quite fitting for her generous nature!

This makes me go out in another sea shanty "Rule, Equestria!"
(Parody of an old Royal Navy song, "Rule, Brittania!")

When Equestria first, at princess' command
Arose from out the azure mane
Arose, arose from out the azure mane
This was the charter, the charter of the land,
And alicorn angels sang this strain

Rule, Equestria! Equestria rule the waves
Ponies never never shall be slaves! (2x)

The chaos, not so blessed as thee,
Must, in their turns, to abyss fall
Must, in their turns, to abyss fall
While thou shalt flourish, shalt great and free,
The proud and grateful of them all.

Rule, Equestria! Equestria rule the waves
Ponies never never shall be slaves! (2x)

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful from each evil stroke,
Dreadful, dreadful from each evil stroke,
As the chaos that shrieks the skies
Serves but to spread like poison joke

Rule, Equestria! Equestria rule the waves
Ponies never never shall be slaves! (2x)

These arrogant kings never shall tame,
All their attempts to bend us down,
All their attempts to bend us down,
Will but arouse thou harmonic flame
Work their elements with the crown

Rule, Equestria! Equestria rule the waves
Ponies never never shall be slaves! (2x)

To thee belongs the rural rein
Thy landmarks shall with friendship shine
Thy landmarks shall with friendship shine
All thine shall be the subject main
And every shore rings with chime

Rule, Equestria! Equestria rule the waves
Ponies never never shall be slaves! (2x)

The magic, still with freedom found,
Shall bring the cheer to colt and mare,
Shall bring the cheer to colt and mare
O Blest them two! With matchless beauties crown'd
And shining hearts to guard the fair

Rule, Equestria! Equestria rule the waves
Ponies never never shall be slaves! (2x)
