Prince Spike? by bico-kun Prince Spike? by bico-kun
Spike: "I can explain, Rarity!"

Rarity: "I should certainly hope so. I can't believe you've been keeping something like this from me."

Spike: "It's not like that. Moondancer's just an old friend…"

Rarity: "When were you going to tell me you were nobility?"

Spike: "… Wait, you're not upset about Moondancer?"

Rarity: "Upset? About her? Oh, Darling, please…"

    One of my many head-canons concerning our favorite baby dragon is that, having been raised by Princess Celestia, Spike is a prince by adoption. He keeps it on the down low because he gets more satisfaction out of being able to serve others rather than be served, but occasionally he pulls rank to influence ponies such as Hoity Toity or Sapphire Shores to do him a solid. I also always thought that Moondancer being a competing love interest (unlucky childhood friend type) would be interesting since I saw the first episode. I like the idea that Blueblood is actually generally pleasant, if fussy like Rarity, and is one of Spike's close friends.

    I just realized all these ponies are white. What's up with that?

Edit
:iconmasteranimash1996: posted a fanfic based on this artwork called Spike's Royal Business. A few warnings: it is NSFW, it's a harem fic, the harem involves MxM, it does not involve Rarity, and the story actually emphasizes Rarity's flaws over her virtues (i.e. "gold digger" characterization), so if you're like me and love Rarity's character (not to mention Sparity), you might not like this fic.

*facehoof* Spike, forget about your first interest, Moondancer, and go back to Rarity! She's 100x more right for you any day! Especially after all you two have been through!

I meant that things are going to get crazy which is why I used an idiom to express the next set of events.

The ponies are white because no pony with black fur is allowed in the gala.

Rarity- I hope you 2 will be happy together.
Spike- but... Rarity. I don't like her THAT way. She only likes me for my social status.
Rarity- Really?
Spike- yes. That's why I don't tell any-pony about my nobility; they treat me differently and only pretend to be my friend. I'd rather they hate me for being a dragon, than pretend to like me for being Celestia's "Son".

Spike- but if I be myself they won't respect me anymore.
Rarity- then that's there loss!

Spike- thanks Rarity, but in this kind of crowd I have to be different than how I usually am.
Rarity- No you shouldn't. Most around here don't even give me such as a second glance when they hear where I am from.
Spike- Rarity, you belong amongst groups like this, I don't.
Rarity- really, Spike? You're the first one I've noticed that Blueblood actually treats pleasantly.
Spike- well, we're cousins, that's different. But you know what? You're right! If they can't accept me for who I am, than I shouldn't care!
*Spike takes off his royal clothes, back to his natural style*
Spike- man, this is so much more comfortable. I really hate wearing those royal clothes, actually.

Well, she was only mentioned in the first season. Episode one, actually. That bear Spike's tail impaled was for her. She also shows up in the background of one of the comics. She was actually a G1 character, though.

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but the first thing I thought was:

during one of Spike's "Royal Business" trips to Canterlot, Rarity is also there for a formal occasion (arriving fashionably late as usual) only to find Spike there, wearing quite stunning formal attire (not designed by her) alongside many of the top noblemen of the nation and having a pleasant talk with them. She addresses him and eventually learns that he was there because he's Canterlot's (only) crowned prince (aka: Celestia's official son) . She asks why he never told him this, he questions why it ever mattered, she reveals that she would've gladly gone out with him if she had known, to which he scoffed and raised his nose saying (something along the lines of) "that's precisely why I didn't tell anyone outside of these parties that are sworn with absolute secrecy: because I don't want whorish gold diggers groveling at my feet, as I once thought you were exclusive from."

I never said you did... it's more of a circumstantial thing... she always goes for princes (rich people) , just because of their status and wealth... is that not how she is?
Reply
:iconbico-kun:
bico-kun Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I'd say she definitely notices status and wealth (and looks, of course) first, but I'd say most people notice those things first, too. The difference between her and a "gold digger" type, is that she doesn't want anypony just because of their wealth or connections or looks, but merely has those as priority items in a laundry list of traits she desires, and those things apparently aren't her highest priority, either. Otherwise, she'd have still been trying to get Blueblood.
