Homelessloo by Gavalanche Homelessloo by Gavalanche
Lauren Faust Y U NO GIVE SCOOTALOO A FAMILY?

OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS OH MY GOSH!

I was just cleaning out my art folder and I found this piece I started last April (ancient by internet standards) but never finished. Look at how crude it is! I was still learning how to use a tablet (still am really). I was trying to do some water color type effect and it wasn't going very well.

I know I said I wasn't going to be putting up my uncompleted/scrapped works, but I just had to for this one because...

1) It's cute!
2) I think this still counts as essentially abuse, so it doesn't hurt my cred.
3) It is so similar to Doctordappel's great story about homeless Scootaloo.

So praying we see her family in Season 3. If only for one scene.

Lauren Faust's mind can go to some fairly unusual places considering the kid-friendly context of the show (for example, it is alleged that as far as she was concerned, Applejack's parents are dead) so it's not too unrealistic a stretch to assume that Scootaloo...

Well, yeah, I really hope we see her family in Season 3 and this gets dispelled.

But if we see Scoots family in season 3 or future seasons...no more homeless scootaloo tribute

I know, but I'd be fine with that. Mind you, turns out Applejack's parents are dead (confirmed by the staff working on the show) so it's not looking good for Scoot's family either, haha.

I had to dig this piece up after I found a song someone made based on this work. The song was bittersweet, and I wonder why it carried such a resonating undertone...I can see why now. As a former homeless person, I can say that this really is what someone really wants when they are...just to know someone out there still cares.

I think this is the song that was inspired by the image. When Home Calls - [link]

The songwriter gives a direct image link, so I had to do a search from the deviantart main page to find the image.

Awwwwwww! So cute! (Of course, I just choose to believe that Scootaloo's family, Spitfire and Soarin, are just away so much of the time it seems that she doesn't have a family... but that's my version... heehee) I love those last two panels! Snuggle tiem!

That theory is actually becoming quite popular, along with the one about her really being a princess and hiding her horn in her mane.

I seriously might quit making pony comics if that happens.

Unless her parents are worse than Rarity's, then I'd be cool with it.

Too bad Rainbow Dash doesn't have any experience with family herself, otherwise she'd be a perfect foster family for Scootaloo.

A brilliant deconstruction for why Scootaloo's family is never seen. And proof that not all deconstruction need to be mindlessly depressing!

I don't blame her for Scootabuse at all, and would feel terrible if someone did say that to her.

But, I do blame her for not giving Scootaloo a family. And she should be called out for that (let's wait to see what happens in season 2 first though).

(sorry for the late reply)

You know, I thought homelessloo was a goofy/dark joke that'd be good for a while, but now we've had two seasons without a single Scootaloo episode! Not even any indication of Scootaloo's family or living situation!

Homelessloo/Orphanloo is serious business now. Like, Scootabuse doesn't even make sense anymore. What can the fans do to Scootaloo that the show writers haven't done already?

I feel like now when I put jokes about Scootaloo being homeless or orphaned in a pirate attack in my comics that I'm just sticking to the show's canon.

My thoughts are that she ISN'T exactly an 'orphan' per say, but a pony who is hurt because of the fact her parents are ALWAYS absent, like they don't care, so they aren't ever in anything she does. I think of them like the parents from Rugrats. (Angelica's to be specific)Angelica's parents are around, yes, but they are always doing work and have no time for her, so eventually she became mean just to get attention. Same with Scootaloo except Scootaloo's parents are SO absent that Scootaloo left them. (Or disowned them) She has a family, but she's an orphan also because it's like she doesn't have a family at all. So she has no home anymore because she HAD no home from the start. (Figuratively) So yes, she is Homeless and an Orphan, but not literally YET. I bet her parents are like Rarity but snobbier and don't exactly even KNOW their child.
