This is a prize for our dear friend
who won the
Easter contest with her gorgeous entry that blew everyone away [link]
I'm honored to make this for her...as well as I'm glad that I am showing my support for a certain gumball machine.
I've been watching a lot of RS lately, and I must say, Benson deserves SO MUCH sympathy. I feel pretty bad for him in most episode; well, "Eggscelent" was no exception, considering I'm sure he pissed off everyone besides Mordecai regarding Rigby's desire for that hat.
But still, you have to sympathize with him regarding his stressful job...and two slackers that make a regular day anything
Can't say I blame him in "Think Positive" for yelling so much, nearly burning the park down with his held-in anger, and severely shouting at Mordecai and Rigby SO loudly that he literally drove them deaf. Trust me, I KNOW how he feels.
There are times when I get moody, lose my temper, and scold people; considering I'm mostly like Twilight Sparkle, stress is DEFINITELY on my list, and my desire for things to go according to plan have me worried.
And it's a very stressful thing to be the boss, let alone be in charge. When I was in elementary school, my classmates and I were practicing for a Civil War re-enactment, and I was a second-in-command while a friend of mine placed himself in charge of the whole activity. Unfortunately, no one was following his instructions and some were even jabbing at him with their cardboard bayonets. I was getting annoyed, but he just went full-on rage on them. He yelled, criticized, and a few innocent curses considering we were all still kids and didn't know the 'F' word yet.
Thank goodness our teacher came over to calm him and set everyone straight. If this was a REAL war...there would not be any survivors.
Twilight's always in charge, considering she's the leader of her friends and the most powerful element of all. She totally sympathizes Benson regarding Mordecai and Rigby's poor working skills and their intentions to drive their boss mad.
So when things get too much for Benson and the poor guy finds himself so overwhelmed and with a horrible headache from so much stress and yelling, Twilight immediately takes his side; she sometimes disapproves of Mordecai's slacker habits...which, unknowingly to her, makes chances slim for Mordecai, considering his secret crush on her.
Hey, ever took someone's arm and tried bending it around their body to see if it'll touch the chin? Yeah, I've tried that once; the person was very flexible. However, Mordecai...
Yeah, these are those times when I wonder what would have happened if it was BENSON
who had approached and comforted Twilight first in chapter 14, part 1 of my Invader Zim cartoon crossover story "Earthworm Zim" [link]
Who knows? Maybe you guys would have given me the same feedback in regards to when you thought Mordecai and Twilight made a cute pairing; and maybe it might have become TWISON
Look, as handsome and cute and mature as Mordecai is...he can be a real jerk with a side even more immature than Rigby's, and even though it's Benson's problem, it drives ME
I love Benson, he's a sweet guy despite his hard personality, and Twilight wants him to feel better and not get even MORE worked up than she sometimes does back in Ponyville. Here's hoping for happier moments for our dear Benson.
