Sparkling Shield by Itoruna-The-Platypus Sparkling Shield by Itoruna-The-Platypus
Meet Sparkling Shield, Princess of The Crystal Empire, Captain of Canterlot's Royal Guard, and DuskShine's sister! Don't let her semi-elegant appearance fool you, she's very strong, almost to the point of being a bit of an amazon. She even manages to lift Crescendo into the air with ease!

Yes and her name is Sparkling Shield, not Gleaming Shield. It sounds more feminine, and contrasts with DuskShine's name being changed from Twilight Sparkle. Sparkle is the feminine form of Shine, and vice versa.

The name could be Sparkling "Gleaming" Shield or Gleaming "Sparkling" Shield, it really doesn't matter as long it's by who ever thinks of the name. :)

Gleaming Shield: O.O *hides flank and runs off*

Me: "Hon, you should NOT matter whether she hears this or not. Consider life as a television show, one of those romantic movies. Guy tells someone else how he feels about a girl, and the girl is spying on them, listening to how he feels about her, and next thing we know, BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!! The two start dating, romantic stuff, kissing, ecetera. Sweetie, your reputation makes you LOOK like some hot jock from Glee, but showing Gleaming Shield your soft side would %100 win her heart. So... GO FOR IT!!!" *starts to walk away* "Oh, yeah, and by the way-" *grabs bag of bread buns from Bolero* "MY BISCUITS!!!!" *gives evil eye* "My precious..." *stuffs a biscuit in mouth and walks away*

Just had a thought. Since you did this for Shining... why not complete the family with R63 of Spike, Nightlight, and Twilight Velvet?^_^

This is one of the most impressive takes on Shining Armor's R63 version. You gave the design some thought and the effort on it shows.

Least this means he/she will be a more rounded character

Well, I was going for a rounded character. She's also more stern with Twinkle Scout (Chose that over Flare Warden because it sounds more fitting) and protective over DuskShine in that aspect than her male counterpart. You'd think it'd be the other way around, but I decided to throw gender roles off Canterlot Castle's balcony. Next, she'll come up with "8 Simple rules for dating my little brother".

Thanks! But, what exactly do you mean? Her name? Her balance of being a Princess and an Royal Guard?

KayO199X Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014
Both actually.  I've been preaching since Shining Armor's debut that his r63 should be named Sparkling.

I've also been quoted as saying she would be like Princess Leia from Starwars;  a strong, resourceful woman, who can also be beautiful and feminine.

You can check out. Some of the fanfics I wrote for her on my page.

Sparkling Shield: Well, Thanks! I'm glad that my little brother hasn't let being a Prince get his head. Think about it. It's enough having to put up with one diva.
Prince Crescendo: What?!?
Sparkling Shield: Kidding! Kidding.

Yes, Prince Dusk Shine. I guess Sparkling Shield would be a princess, she is married to a Prince.
