Half Time by dm29 Half Time by dm29
They seem to be all I ever vector anymore. That's okay, right?

Do we see Shining Armor as an athletic pony? He wore a hat and that whistle for the Equestria Games inspection... What the hay. My vector, my rules.

YES I KNOW HE'S A NERD IN THE COMICS.

Cute. But you know, they´re not mutually exclusive. I had a friend in high school who was intro nerdy things like obscure videogames but was in the basketball team so, yeah he can be both ^^

They also mention some kind of "cross country" team as one of the clubs he was involved in during high school. What else could it be but an athletic program?

Well, the athletic guys, especially football players with a letter on their jacket, are usually jerks. Atleast in fiction.

In the comics it's revealed he's actually a huge DnD nerd, who was really awkward in his teenage years, he wasn't always the athletic type.

I think Shining Armor is very athletic indeed. I haven't read the comics, but I consider them strictly non-canon. A freaking high school with every possible human stereotype in Equestria? Give me a break.

I agree with everyone who said that Cadance is too short, but otherwise this is a great picture.

This may be half time, but there is still a serious lack of corn dogs.  I want a picture with Shining and corn dogs.  Make it happen, dm!  I love this one, though.

Cadence being that short kind of bothers me.  It's because of the comics, I guess.

Uh...not sure if this has been pointed out already, but the magic aura colors needs to be switched. They're supposed to match the eyes of whoever's using magic.

Actually, this is correct.  If you look at the show, Cadance has blue magic and Shining has magenta/purple.  I think it's so that his magic matches Twilight's for a little more sibling similarity or something like that.  And Cadance, well, idk?  You will also see that Celestia's magic is yellow and her eyes are purplish, so maybe it just depends on some ponies.  Though I do like to go off of the fact that most ponies magic is the same as their eye color.

That's how it worked for Sweetie Belle in "Twilight Time", and ever since season 2, it's been that way.

I say it's a good thing that you've been focusing on them. They barely get to say anything (especially Shinig Armor) and they're actually one of the few "canon shipping". :D

It would be fun to see Cadance dressed up as Juliet, her uniform displaying 'Knights'.
Is she going to convince him to join track and take up Horse Tossing?
Can we see what other kinds of girls Shining was interested in in high school? I bet he went after a few gothic chicks.

Less than a problem than you think most likely as on the cover of said comic we see a book reading ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) obviously to get into even the reserves would require some level of fitness, and while he may not have been on any school sports team it is safe to assume he at least got plenty of exercise.
