Nutmeg Mallow by authorjack Nutmeg Mallow by authorjack
This is Nutmeg, a pony O.C that :iconsquishy-pony-13: and me created.  We're "building" a family to go along with her pony character, Squishy Mallow.  :iconlunaclapplz:
*Prepare for very long description*

Name: Nutmeg Mallow.

Personality: Nutmeg is a shy young Pegasus, who is quick to become frightened. She can often be found with a dreamy look on her face, as she adventures in her own little world—which really isn't all that little, since her imagination can become very wild at times. She is fairly Intelligent, and incredibly creative—even if some of her ideas don't make complete sense. She is nice, and tries to make friends—without really going out of her way to do so. She would much rather that you came to her, rather than her having to introduce herself to a complete stranger.

All in all, she is: Introverted, fairly-kind, creative, fairly-smart, and somewhat-moody at times.

Hobbies/Jobs/Goals: Nutmeg has a few hobbies. Collecting colorful rocks/feathers, and painting, are her three consistent hobbies. Her talent is definitely painting, but she didn't realize this (aka: earn her Cutie Mark) until she was about seven-years-old.

Her job? She isn't really old enough to have a serious job yet. She helps her mother a little bit around the house, and helps keep her younger sister entertained, if that counts.

Her only current goals are to advance in her art and become a professional painter.

Appearance: Nutmeg is a tan-brown color, with a brown mane and tale/brown wings. She resembles her father in many ways. Her mane and tail are both very smooth. Her eyes are a golden color, and her feathers/wings are also very smoothly shaped. She is very light, and her wings are medium sized. (Although she rarely flies very high off of the ground, she still enjoys taking a glide around.)

All in all, she is tall, light, and as much a Pegasus as most. If it weren't for the fact that one of her favorite things to paint are forest/ground scenes, you could hardly tell that she has anything tying her to the ground.

Background: She was born on December 15th in Ponyville, where her father (Colton) works as a Mailpony, also working on Applejack's farm when he has the time. And her mother (Squishy Mallow), works as a baker, and a stay-at-home mother.

Nutmeg is currently ten-years-old, and has grown up her whole life so far in Ponyville. She attends the Ponyville Elementary school, where she is taught by Cheerilee. Her best friend is probably her younger sister, but her best school-friend would probably be Sunflower, a young pony who she gets along with well.

Family Life: Nutmeg's family is definitely a big and happy one. She is perfectly happy where she is, and is usually less shy when at home.

She plays with her sister (when they aren't fighting. Big happy family doesn't mean that there isn't some amount of sibling rivalry), everyday when she can. Her sister (Spearmint) is a young Unicorn who is much like their mother, and loves to—eh—practice her magic with Nutmeg. Almost everyday, Nutmeg will try to help her sister practice her magic. Despite the fact that this has ended both unsuccessfully, and badly, on more than one occasion. They are persistent.

Nutmeg will sometimes help her mother in the kitchen, and help her with the littler things around the house. But she isn't much interested in baking or cooking (which, luckily, Spearmint is) so she doesn't always jump at the chance to help out. She has a pretty typical mother-daughter relationship with her mother, and enjoys playing games (especially boardgames) with her when she can. But despite the fact that she loves her mother as much as any daughter could, she just doesn't have much in common with her.

Her father is the one who she really gets along with. For one: he's a Pegasus, and he understands her need to stretch her wings every once in awhile. He takes the time to carefully look at each new piece of art that she produces, and tries to help her improve in her painting. Plus, he thinks a lot more like she does, which is another big reason that they get along so well.

So when it comes to her family, there isn't anything really bad there.

Okay guys.  That's all.  :iconsweatdropplz:

Very cute~! >w< Looks like a lot of hard work went into both the picture and the background story.

Thank you!
And, yes, there kind of was.  (That background story sounded a lot better before I posted it, though.  XD)
