I got to be honest but when I got to chapter 15 I i just stopped reading at all The way he treats Murky in that chapter litterally broke my heartMurky is just to innocent to be treated that wayIn my eyes it was like seeing a little kid getting beaten by his own parentsIm not going to read anymore of it Murky dosent deserve this

I recommend picking it up again. It DOES get more hopeful and Murky life, despite its dangers, turns out better than ever before.

Murky is a cruel victim of Murphy. Everything that can go wrong probably will or already has.

I've only read the first chapter of this story but it's really well written. I commend the writer for good sentence structure and capturing the mindset of the slave in a realistic manner. Poor Murky :( How could anyone be so mean to such a cute little pony :C

I recommend giving the rest of the chapters a look. Poor thing goes through so much more, but it's captivating just the same.

I've already got my next commission idea in mind because of this pic xD

Though it depends on if he says it's okay that I can have my character interacting with Murk.

Sure ^^

Because the little guy REALLY needs a hug! T_T Seriously, he can't even have the one chance he got at having an honest FRIEND because of those damn wings!

Tis a tough live, the one he lives. "I want to give Murky a hug" is the biggest bit of feedback I've gotten lately, it seems. :p

Perhaps I should commission a Murky plushie. Then the biggest demand can be a reality.

I started reading this one entirely because of the shout-out on the PH hub page. I don't regret it at all. It deserves its own EQD page more than any other spinoff that didn't already have one than I've ever read, and this picture illustrates it perfectly.

Just started reading this fic today and holy cow this is shaping up to be a good story.

Not even half-way through the first chapter I was already wishing I could give Murky a hug and tell him its all going to be okay. Poor little guy. :(

Oh yes. By chapter four, I was ready to say his life was as bad/worse than Blackjack's XD;

Seconded. Murky hasn't had to face the tough decisions and responsibilties that BJ has, but unlike her he's never been allowed the strength or freedom to make his mark on the world. I'm fascinated to find out where his character development will end up going. Hopefully he'll turn into a sneaky guile hero; a nice departure from LittlePip's brains and Blackjack's brawn.

As bad or worse a life as Blackjack in four chapters? BLACKJACK?!

Good Gawd in a bottle, need to start stocking up on anti-depressants now. :P

Could be mistaken, buuuut I'm just comparing BJ's couple months or so against Murky's entire life XD;

oh man this looks so epic. great job mech! I have Murky number seven added to my list of things to read... lol. So many sidefics, so little time.

Not to mention my own. Seeing this commission makes me even more excited for the one I ordered. :D

the most interresting thing about murky is his cutie mark. everyone seem to think it means that he is supposed to be a slave due to the fact that it's a pair of shackles ... but then why are the open? wouldn't a closed pair symbolise it way better? i think it could mean something else than erverybody thinks (open=free=destined to be free?). i don't know but i was always curious about it

:iconana-mizuki:
Ana-Mizuki Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012
Yeah, to me they've meant being able to be free from the chains of slavery. LittlePip might have planted seeds of freedom into his mind, but you can't help to grow what isn't there.

I had the same thought cross my mind, feeling there would eventually be some revelation of that on Murky's part

That's awesome as usual Mech. One minor flaw though. Murky didn't have any clothes on during that scene.

Helps if I reply to the correct person, herp derp...

Yeah that was a specification of my own. I know how popular Mech's drawings get and many people may not have read that far by now. If you look carefully you can see Mech has left a lovely little hint though. ;)

I know, but part of my instruction for the drawing was to leave Murky clothed to avoid potential spoilers to new readers.

characterizations, perspective, lighting, details... your stuff blows my mind.

fuzzyveevee Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012
Seriously, seriously impressed. I just love the perspective from Murky's point of view on the looming figure of Shackles. Really gets across the tone of Master and Slave, the character link that (in this case literally) connects them in the story.

Aside from that, I wish to throw a compliment to Mech as a person. Absolutely friendly and professional the entire way through even with a couple of things asked to be edited or remembered amongst my ramblings. Highly recommended as a reliable and trustworthy artist for future commissions, folks!

And of course, thanks to Mech for this awesome piece of artwork!
