My Little Hogwarts: Those of Great Ambition

And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition

The first Slytherin of my crossover, Rarity!  The Sorting Hat actually wavered between Slytherin and Ravenclaw for a while before choosing.  Rarity's favorite class is Transfiguration.

Sorry for the lack of uploads lately.  Work's been super busy because one person recently quit so I haven't really felt like drawing in my free time.  Mostly I've been reading manga and playing Pokemon Moon. XD I actually did draw stuff in February but it's part of a larger project that I'm excited to share, though it will probably be a while until it's finished.  I really need to start cracking down on studying for my ALAT exam so things will probably still be slow for a while but then once I've passed I'm gonna get the new Zelda game and then I will be doing literally nothing else haha sorry guys

We're officially more than halfway done with the Mane 8!  After they're all done I'd like to take a break from this crossover to do a couple other projects I've had in mind, including jumping on the Next Gen bandwagon.  
Wow!  You guys are awesome!  Over the past few weeks I've gained a lot of followers and only just realized that this puts me over 150.

I feel like I should draw something to celebrate, but I'm not sure what.

My Little Hogwarts: Those of Wit and Learning

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;

Just as the Apple family comes from a long line of Hufflepuffs, the Sparkles tend to favor Ravenclaw.  Twilight is especially proud to be in the same House as the great Starswirl the Bearded.  Like Applejack, Twilight is also a prefect.  She quickly caught the attention of the professors in her first year, being able to quickly master almost any spell put in front of her.  It wasn't long before Headmaster Celestia herself took Twilight under her wing, joining Sunburst, Starlight Glimmer, and Sunset Shimmer in Celestia's group of personal proteges.   The other three, Sunset and Starlight especially, weren't too happy about having to share Celestia with yet another rival, and were rather hostile toward her. Starlight even challenged her to a battle in the Dueling Club.  Though it ended in a stalemate, Twilight earned Starlight and Sunset's grudging respect.  Eventually all four became good friends.  Though Twilight excels in every subject, her favorites are Transfiguration and Charms since they involve actual magic casting.

Wow, half of the Mane 8 are finished! I suppose I'll do a Slytherin next.  After I finish all eight I think I'll take a little break from these to do some traditional work. I got new pencils for Christmas that I've been dying to try out.  When I return to this crossover I think I'll do portraits of some minor characters and maybe some full-body bios.  :3
My Little Hogwarts: Unafraid of Toil

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil

Oops, I lied.  I said in the journal that Twilight would be next, then this happened. BUT IN MY DEFENSE, this had been sketched out even before the Fluttershy drawing.  I couldn't get her face to look right so I abandoned it and moved on.  But two nights ago I went back to it and finally got it to look not-wonky and decided just to go ahead and color it.  So yeah, Twilight will actually be next, whenever I get around to it.  Sorry!

But enough about that, let's talk about Hufflepuff AJ!  Responsible and hard-working, AJ is a favorite of the professors and becomes a prefect in her 5th year, which is when I imagine this AU to take place.  She'll most definitely be Head Girl of Hufflepuff in two years.  She's also a Beater on the Quidditch team.  Her favorite class is Herbology, taught by none other than Granny Smith.

The Apple family can trace its Hufflepuff heritage back for hundreds of years, and they are proud to be part of the House known for its loyalty.  But they are also open-minded and understanding, and would definitely not disown a member of their family if they got sorted into a different House...right?  Applejack liar

Hey! Since you favorited some of my dino art, I thought I'd let you know I'm doing a Kickstarter for my dinosaur novel Mark of the Conifer, which is live!…
You can also see more art for it here:…
Hope to see you there!
