Well, it's cheaper than 10$ for the moment, so i guess you could go win a contest and get it bought for you.

But if it goes over $10 I'll have to win all the contests to pay for it. Confounded ponies...

You seriously need to do a better job of abusing your power, Fluttershy. I'll get you started.

Quick, everyone start a bidding war to curry Fluttershy's favor!

See? It's not so hard.

I never abuse my power, unless I'm playing Team Fortress 2, and I'm in the mood for some liberal slapping.

It should automatically convert, and if somepony actually did buy this for me, they would have my undying love for an eternity.

I'd rather just paint you a Fluttershy. Rather, I'd likely make a Fluttershy sculpture/paperweight for you. probably would save me money.

At the prospect of getting free stuff I just made one. Rhyming? AngelFluttershy101

(The thing is also up to US $17.13, brony fans be out-bidding my homies. Pardon? )

Hahaha, that's just sooo Derpy. Muffins!?! And go surprise extra money! I love it when that happens. "Shit, I only have $80 for PAX." *looks in end table* "And now I found an envelope with $200 more!"

You are winning more than an auction right now. You're winning my heart. <3 SO awesome!

The Lyra and Bon Bon one looks weird.

Yeah it does look slightly less awesome than the fluttershy one. And if no one else bids on lyra and bonbon I'll probably just up my bid to at least 10 gbp. 1gbp seems like a ripoff. It would be pretty awesome to have though. Fabulous! Also there is a rainbow dash one now! 29 days. (s?)he's looking to get a lot of money off rbd.

Not to double post, but I GOT IT! All the way from the UK! It arrived today in a nice manila envelope covered in bubble wrap and wrapping paper. I call this much success. Thanks Ekeli! The fourth pic is where I'm going to hang it probably, right over my TV. I like how you can see the dust hanging on my walls.... I'll dust tomorrow for sure! I get lazy during the summer hehe. I need to go out tomorrow and find a nice frame for it too.

WARNING: Each picture is massive! So make sure to click "Spoiler" again when you are done looking at each one!

Dear Ekeli, it is not my custom to say this, yet, I take my hat off for you. I feel pleasantly surprised to see something seemingly 'impossible' achieved.

It is out of character and I don't care, as a simple bystander of the events you created, thanks.

Well I took the painting down to the craft store and this is my story.

>Get in car with painting measurements
>Go to store
>Find out the painting is an irregular canvas and needs custom framing
>Leaves store to see a man across the street selling his art (framed sketches of pencil on paper) for "Whatever you think it is worth"
>Get in car
>Go to Gamestop
>Cancel Modern Warfare 3 pre-order and change it to Dead Island for the X360
>Get back in car
>Go home and grab the painting
>Take it back to the craft store
>Find the guy behind the framing counter
>Tell him I need it framed
>He asks "Did you paint this?"
>Respond no and tell him a friend bought it for me
>Get a weird look, but he measures it up and starts helping me go through frame choices
>His co-worker comes over and sees the painting. Co-worker squints hard at it and then looks at me
>Give him the "I'm 'srs biz' look
>Co-worker walks away
>Man helping me says "So when will you need this framed, 'creature' by?"
>Tell him its no rush
>Takes my contact information
>Pay him in full
>Get a copy of the receipt and walk out of the store
>Look at pick-up form
>"Art: Acrylic or canvas; Condition: 'Flying Pony;"
>Laugh out loud really hard
>Man selling pictures across the street gives me a concerned look
>Smile all the way back to my car
>Turn on the radio to hear an old Native American chief requesting a song on the classic rock station
>"Hey Steve, can you do an old Native American chief a favor and play me some Ted Nuget?"
>Laugh even harder in the car
>Result, best day ever


Here is a summary:
A gallon of gas: $3.80
Framing an irregular sized picture of a "Flying Pony": $63.71
Preserving Fluttershy forever: Priceless

"Flying Pony"

You'd think someone who works with art would have at least a passing familiarity with Pegasus

I know right? It isn't that hard to figure it out especially considering he seemed to know a lot about art and frames. I guess they are racist towards Pegasusi.
