Attraction by Siansaar Attraction by Siansaar
Miasma is rather picky when it comes to choosing her victims...she likes to go for the more attractive colts. In a city such as Manehattan, overflowing with fashion and models, that isn't much of a problem. It's rumoured she also maintains connections with its criminal underworld, making unwanted ponies disappear...
In contrast to the Honeycomb Hive, where husks are often made into personal toys for the queen, the Miasma Hive puts its victims to actual work. With the husks doing the brunt work of maintaining the hive, changeling workers are free to gather more love for it. Small wonder it is the second biggest hive in all of Equestria...
-----------------
Bonus: Coco Pommel!
a) Because she makes it easier to identify the setting as Manehattan and b) cause she was adorable in the episode and really drove home the moral. I fully expected Rarity to take her on as an assistant. Oh well. Receptionist pony was very cute too, but I didn't want to add both of them to the picture. Plus the receptionist strikes me more as staying at home and reading a book whereas Coco might be out on business for Suri.
I don't really like the thought of ponies smoking, but damn if it doesn't add the right atmosphere to this piece! Maybe they have an open fireplace.
The perspective was challenging.

I don't know if you meant to do this but the stallion in this looks a tad like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.

I was going for a generic "slick macho man" look, so I guess it fits :D

I believe that Rarity did great by Coco: rather than taking her in as an assistant, she gave her a highly visible contract.

The pony's a black-widow!

What's a miasma?

Fantastic! I agree with the smoke thing, adds atmosphere, but hard to see ponies doing it. I'm not sure if this is part of Miasma's profile, but does she also have a slight stink even when disguised? I thought I read that somewhere. If so, then it makes even more sense she is in such a smokey bar; to mask her stench.

Nice. But it makes me worried that some changeling male might set his sights on Coco after this. She is pretty cute after all.

well, other changelings of the hive have their own preferences. usually the determining factor is how full of love someone seems to be. coco seems to be mostly intimidated :D

This idea, of Coco being in some way pursued by a changeling, has now inspired me to write a possible fanfic of it. Because it was your picture that inspired it, would you be alright if I cited you and this picture as the inspiration for it?

Victim: Hey there, sweet thing. Now what's a pretty little mare like you doing in a place like this?
Miasma: Hmm... I think you just answered that question~
Victim: ... uh, no, I just asked it.
Miasma: Uh - no, you see, I was hitting on you-
Victim: Right, but you confused a question with an answer. See, the rising inflection at the end of my sentence-
Miasma: I KNOW what a question is, you - look. You want some or not?
Victim: Yes! Also, yes.
Miasma: I'm... what?
Victim: I was saying "yes" because you demonstrated a question, thus proving you were correct in asserting that you knew what one was.
Miasma: And... then you were answering my question.
Victim: Correct.
Miasma: *sigh* well, now I HAVE to do this. If only out of spite.
Victim: Spite?
Miasma: Room 213B, ten minutes. Come alone.
Victim: Woo! Ha, haven't gone this fast since that one time I met this one lady! Who... turned out to be a changeling, eh? Ha ha!
Miasma: Haa... glad that isn't true this time, aren't you? (*sigh* Pretty ones... always the pretty ones...)

"Connections to criminal underworld..."

I both curse you and thank you for giving me more character dynamics to work with. Yep, just got my idea for Miasma's chapter in the sequel.

I also greatly look forward to Myxine's piece. I want to see some ponies go...swimming.

So... she has connections whit criminals from Manehattan. Does that mean some of them are aware of her Hive and her existenz? Like a deal: You bring me perfume and i let those guys who troulbe you "dissapear". Sheesh, shes like a Mafia boss wrapping arround Criminals arround her hooves

mm not as such. in their dealings they are of course disguised. even criminals wouldn't deal with them if they knew they were changelings.

And now im very interested how you gonna present us Myxine about how she and her hive drains love. Ponies are not very interested in seafaring. And the Winter just makes it worse for them to find "food" on the sea. A pretty difficult area she lives in to survive.  Poor Myxine D:

unfortunately, or fortnately for the changelings, even if you took into the concept of chrysalis MAJORLY fucking her own kind up, there would be ponies stupid enough to fall for anything. like this poor sod............ shakes head. then again if this is miasma herself and she reveals her true form, there is a real risk of the victim dying from sheer terror.

also, Coco freaking ADORABLE. crossing fingers that she does appear again like the writer hinted. likely rarity and her would keep in touch.
........receptionist was pretty cute herself.

bout ponies smoking............ you already have it that Miasma is a damn pervert and likely rapist. pertty sure smoking is a fairly light subject there. though they would likely need a pip.

........sighs. damn. wish i had the talent of drawing to express what ideas i have with mlp. working on a fanfiction myself...... a farily large project. harder tahn i imagined........... wish i could get visual display of certain aspects i am working with. like a part i have with pegasi having telescopic vision, and also concepts i ahve for changeligns as well.

I think what I like about this most is that I had no idea this was a picture about the changlings until I read the description. Nobody can tell the difference.
I simply adore Miasma and your concepts for the changlings.

I gotta admit, I really love the way you hung the outfit off Miasma there. Reminds me of the old west burlesque costumes, oddly enough. I gotta admit, I'm really hoping you bring back Velvet and company soon, I really enjoyed that Tumblr. You manage clothing on ponies like no one else I've seen....

Well, a cigar bar would be an ideal hunting ground for her since it would cover up the smell those kind of Changelings tend to carry. 
I like the colt's design! Reminds me of the really old Old Spice commercials somehow.

Neat. And why ponies/smoking is bad? I have no problem with portraying ponies using schicha(or whathever it is called) to smoke some apple flavored tobacco or stuff ;)

well i guess that works. but cigarettes is a whole other can of worms. i'm currently trying to quit and i can tell you my cough isn't the prettiest. so i wouldn't wanna subject ponies to that.

On that I can agree. I personally am not a person who smokes (on rare ocassions, not fan of that) but my grandma...geez. Smoking all the time and that  cough sounds like her loungs would try to escape.

The Deacon (Or Priest or whatever Equestria has) in the "Hearts & Hooves" episode had a bubble pipe..I believe his name is Mister Waddle. Cool pic BTW.
