I've tried sticking as close as possible to the show for this one. Can't really say I'm displeased with the outcome.

Yeah, I've gotten a bit lazy with Celestia's hair and the solid fire in the background, deal with it! :iconrddealwithitplz:

Equestria Daily, aw yeah!… :squee:

My personal favorite of this piece is the full spectrum of immorality and what it actually is. The piece itself is beautiful, the colors spot on, and the artwork is divine. The "laziness" of the piece wasn't extremely evident, as it is a still art, but the original animation of that is perfectly drawn and rendered. Now, the immortality aspect of this piece is quite a thought in itself. Originally perceived as just a joke, this could branch off into two of these theories: Immortality is just eternal life, or is it also invincibility as an added bonus? Thank you!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
78 out of 89 deviants thought this was fair.

The vision was pretty basic. Have Fluttershy and Celestia do something together that will make us laugh. Also, this is innocent Trollestia. As long as she isn't mean spirited, Trollestia isn't too bad. Deserving of four stars.
It is very original though. The idea of a breath holding contest is unique, especially between these two characters. four and a half stars.
The technique was a little lazy. Celestia's mane wasn't a big deal. But the fire? You really should have made it a little different in each frame. It wouldn't have taken that long. The artwork is show quality, however, so that save it. But the fake fire really takes away from it. So, I give it three and a half stars.
The impact is just cute, mystifying, and funny all at once. Fluttershy looks cute when she first holds her breath. She also is so funny in the later frames. It makes us wonder what it's leading up to. And when we get to the final frame, we all laugh. Also, Trollestia is nice here. Like in "A bird In the Hoof" where she pranks the cakes by making them spill the tea and says "Gotcha!" This story fit her personality. Although she probably wouldn't want to do this to Fluttershy. So, I'll give four and a half stars.
All in all, this story gets 4 out of 5 stars in total.

If we think about it, the last quote of Cellestia can actually mean three diferent things:

1) "I can't die from this" what in a sence is incorrect but who cares, it's just a joke after all ^^
2)  She had wayyyyy enough time to train at it...maybe with her sister when they were young ^^"
3)  She is just kind over flutershy, like saying "it's not because you're bad at it, you just can't beat me"
like an adult would try to say something to a child who lose in a game againt her.

Anyway, it was a simple, lazy yet good joke xD

Might I mention that immortality DOES NOT MEAN that they cannot die...? IT simply means they do not age...kind of like a vampire. They can still die through at least some normal causes of death, and death by manipulation. (ie. choking, starving, decapitation, etc)

No... I'm fairly sure immortality means you cannot die... (Fuckwit)

Vampires... Are already dead... (Fuckwit)

Eternal Youth means they cannot Age... (Fuckwit)

You're a complete and total Fuckwit... (Fuckwit)...
